The guilt is overwhelming! Now I'm just trying to live with myself. May my decendants forgive me. I didn't pass what seems to be an HT-buff test. Last night after setting up my optical output on my new sony DVD player to send a digital signal to my new HK-525 reciever so it could play surround sound through my new Axiom speakers...I sat down and watched 2 entire movies, and...I DIDN'T ADJUST A THING!!! No equalizing, no delay adjustments, no large/small speakers, not even Bass or Treble!! I just sat down and enjoyed, in pure glutney, the sweet pounding and melodies that came from my speakers!! I mean, as a HT-buff wannabe, I shouldn't enjoy my movies right? I should constatly adjust the screen, the crossover, and place my sub woofer all over the room by moving it a half inch at a time untill I get the perfect sound. I shouldn't even be evaluating my speakers...I mean truly I shouldn't even be listening to them until 2-3 weeks from now, when they are fully broken in!! But no, not me. I put in a movie and enjoyed pure bliss. I'm shameless. I'm digital doo-doo! I'm sorry. I'll go home tonight and make myself listen to 5 consecutive hours of non-stop test tones in repent! Halen.
