I think you are both right.
I often find myself saying, "God, I forgot how good this sounds!" as I listen to my system, anchored by my D2 with ARC.
Its nice to both know what good sound is, and (because of my faulty auditory memory) to be re-reminded each time that I have a system that is capable of producing it.
