That's one of the reasons why I prefer the WYSC section of the forum. I've said it before and it holds true. IMO, this thread is a celebration of what we have and/or will accomplish with our A/V setups. Yes, a debate occurs ever so often, but for the most part, it's where you can get encouragement, positive reinforcement, constructive critiquing, and ideas of how you can improve on what you have. It's also a fun way of measuring what you have to what others have without the negativity, sans not posting photos when you list your equipment!
(Some of the guys have a fit when photos aren't posted!) Not to mention the photos of the setups. Thread can also be a vehicle for humility. Why? Just when you think you've got this stuff figured out, some one starts a thread and posts photos of their system that makes you realize, there's better out there, or there's more that you can do with your system and/or room. I know there have been times when I had delusions of grandeur, thinking there was nothing else I could possibly do to my system!
That was 3 years ago. 20 modifications later, here I am!
Ok, I'm finished!
