why do people use display speakers.............
ugh money, time, wires, formating, placement of 6-8 speakers, hassle.
before i joined avs i made the misinformed mistake a spending 2.5k on a sony non hdmi avs 5.1 receiver with bose speakers. had it calibrated by umr and aside from really good dvd/br audio mixes, it doesn't really enhance the viewing experience. the 5.1 sound i get from dish doesn't really sound that good to make me want to watch regular tv programming, excluding sports, in surround. hell the nfln broadcast last thursday was painful to hear in surround with their messed up audio mix. if i had a better setup, it would produce better audio and i'd probably use it more, but i don't have that kind of $$ to throw around these days.
my 2nd hdtv i have hooked up just to a stereo with 4 speakers and that produces a passable audio for my movies.
again if i had the $$ i would upgrade my audio, buy the 70 sharp elite, and probably a bmw, but those days are gone and may never come back.
