    I'm just curious how many of you guys are like me,as in you got a pretty nice set up but its still not quite what you wont.
    For example my system is Sony STR-DA5ES receiver,Sony DVP-C650D DVD player,Sony CDP-CX400 CD player,Sony XBR400 TV,Polk CS400i center,RT55i front mains,surrounds,& rear surrounds,& last DIY sonosub with a 15"Dayton DVC & PE 250watt plate amp.

    Now that said I know alot of my buddies think Im lucky to have that (witch I do Agree)but at the same time I've worked my butt off to have that much.My problem is I cant stop dreaming of going better,like getting into separates,getting that big screen TV,better speakers, & we cant forget having the ultimate Theater room for it all to go in.

    Ok so back to my question how many of you are like this to you got a decent system but you wont to improve on it but cant?

    Joe I think that you are speaking about almost every person here on the HTF. [​IMG]
    I have good speakers, receiver, dvd player, etc but always think about what it would be like to have a dedicated HT room with all the equipment with a cost no object sort of thing. [​IMG]

    Are you kidding!? I have WET daydreams about some of the gear most of the members here have! [​IMG]
    I walk into a place like Overture, a high end HT store near my house, and I just keep thinking that what I have isn't jackshit compared to this stuff! To tell you the truth, other than hittng the powerball, I can't envision a time in my life when i'll ever be able to afford that kind of hardware and it really bumbs me out.

    John, you hit it on the head. I didn't really have time to say all I wonted to before. I know just what you mean about going to your local HT store & seeing a pair of 20,000 Dollar speakers hooked up to a pair of 10,000 dollar mono block amps,& using speaker wires that cost as much as my whole system[​IMG] it makes me nuts.
    I always find myself going somewhere just to drool over what I will never be able to afford,& always think man if I only had a third of the money that that system cost.Or starring at some magazine wonting to have the extra 5 grand for that new big screen or whatever.
    I know alot of the people that are here are the same way but at the same time there are alot of people here that have what I could only dream to have,and then some.
    Oh well I quess I'm done venting my frustration,I do feel pretty lucky to have what I do,but I will never quit dreaming & wonting to go one step better.
