Well one of them is just more of a good thing (Bass) Still tight. Still pleasing. Just more of it.I still say the comparison is valid. I've had people tell me many times that if I listen to flat bass for a couple weeks then I'll never want to go back to hot bass. Same thing here I'm guessing.
But instead of being more of a good thing........an improper image can look unpleasing. Washed out. It loses the contrast and hence the punch that is associated with a good image.
So for the comparison to be valid I think we would have to muddy up the bass. More bass but just bad sound.
At any rate we can agree to disagree on this one. I still loved watching movies at your place even BEFORE you projector upgrade AND BEFORE your black out project. I'm sure it is even better now. So no worries.
Edit: Totally agree about the going back part. Once you have your display in some kind of torch mode and you switch to a better calibrated image it looks worse initially and you want to go back as fast as possible. Same with bass. I think we all bump the bass up compared to flat......some more than others!
