Well first off I appreciate that you guys made the last minute decision to make the long haul up by me. It was great seeing you Saturday and finally meeting your wife. We had a blast, and we definitely all need to get together again soon.
I was also pumped to finally show off my room to you! After all your help with my subs, and general advice I was glad you got a chance to hear it. I really have nothing to compare to besides your room, so it was nice to hear your thoughts on it having been in a lot of different rooms. I think that Ready Player One scene is just an exceptional demo scene, and made it sound better than it is
I think it sounds really good, but of course I either see, or am looking for ways to improve everything.
The great thing about the party was that a lot of people there had either never heard my room, or haven't heard it in a while. I think only one person there had ever heard it with the 21", so doing demos was a lot of fun. There were a lot of jaws on the floor. More than a few people were like "this is like going to the movies" before I played something, then after they said something to the effect of "this is BETTER than going to the movies". While I do have a couple friends who have some kind of surround setups, none of them are really comparable. They are all in wide open spaces (unfinished basements, living rooms, etc.), so the only person who had a critical ear who's opinion I was looking for was yours. When it was over and you and your wife were equally as blown away as everyone else it made my night
I think we need to come up with a small group of us and do a local HT crawl some time.
