I'm just wondering because sometimes I'm not sure if people are talking about how LOUD it is, or how GOOD and clear the sound is. Right now, I have nothing. I mean, I have an 8 year old boom box hooked up to my tv because the TV's sound doesn't work anymore. It's one step up from nothing. But, I've been slowly saving up, and I really want something that lets me enjoy the movies without adjusting the volume and sound during the movie. I want to get something that I can be really happy with for a good value. Anyway, I'm going to set up a home theater downstairs in the basement, but still my kids can hear it through the vents upstairs and this will mostly be for viewing after they are in bed. So, would there be any reason for me to pay attention to how loud it says it is? Or is "loud" completely unseperable from "quality". I definitely want to aim for immersion as much as possible.
