Guess I am fortunate to have come to this hobby later in life when disposable income tends to be more readily available. For you young whippersnappers it's often a choice between eating Top Ramen for a couple of years ... or speakers.
Ha. I just saw a good opportunity for a quick joke, but I agree that it is all relative. I am coming from a 5.1 setup that cost a total of $350 for all 5 speakers and the sub, so this is a HUGE upgrade even for the 228HTs. And considering how little I listen to music, I know the value in the 228HTs is extremely high!
Now, if I had an extra $3000 sitting around I'd certainly be ordering the 212HTs and probably some Slanted 8s for surrounds as well. The money isn't really the issue though, I honestly just don't have the space and/or need for something that powerful at this time!
With that said, I'm trying to find another reason to convince myself I should keep waiting patiently to place that order with Jeff...
