I wouldn't disagree with this... my build out was likely similar in cost to all of my equipment put together. So, that puts the room cost very high relative to any piece of equipment. But I agree that a lesser system would likely beat an audiophile grade one in an ideally designed room versus the average basement or family room.
There are many rooms I see here at AVS with fantastic equipment(e.g. Levinson, Martin Logan, Krell, etc) all beautifully displayed in an acoustically ignored room... I don't get it (here's an example):
speakers,martin logan,prodigy,logos,rsquest rear
subs 2x revel b15 front,rear 2 x genesis 900
amps,audio research reference 600 mkIII monoblocs L and right
krell TAS 5 channel centre,fronts for tv
krell ksa-150 class a,spare
bat vk-500 rears
pre amps,bat vk-5 Left,Right (tube)
copland cva306 6 channel blueray only(tube)
proceed AVP sub vol only blueray
cd transport,mark levinson reference cd transport No 31.5

I am sure you all did. Nevertheless, AVS crowd doesn't take criticism of their equipment well. Too much ownership pride maybe I should say.
I actually enjoy criticism of my equipment and that of others. It is just stuff.
