I enjoyed the movie more than I thought I would. It was a good story well done. The video quality in 4K on my OLED was just gorgeous. Again at -10 and the bass was excellent. You could just feel the weight in those underwater shots of the submarine. And to close the evening out A Star is Born. Music was good and every drum beat was a punch in the seat. Again at -10. I get tomorrow afternoon off as well so Bohemian Rhapsody is on tap.
Congrats!! Glad you're loving your new subs
One thing I did was upgrade 2 of the breakers in my breaker box to 20A. I have 2 APC power conditioners, and each one is now on a separate 20A breaker. I never actually tripped a breaker when I was running everything on a single 15A........but why take the chance?
Hardest part is sourcing the correct (new 20A) breakers for your model of breaker box. The breakers themselves are cheap. To REALLY do it correctly you should also then upgrade the wire from your breaker box to the room.....but *cough* I haven't done that yet. If you're REALLY drawing power to capacity, you might be risking a fire hazard by not also upgrading the wire itself; but in my case, I shouldn't be anywhere close.
