It's been one year!!! One unsatified, speaker level calibrating, tv calibrating, ISF desiaring, Front projector wishing, speaker upgrading, receiver upgrading, DVD craving, expensive ASS YEAR!!!!!! Whew. Before the HTF, I was happy with my HTB system, with my 36" direct view standard definition tv. With the s-video and PS2 as my dvd player. (Ignorace is bliss) No Avia, not to mention (gulp) full screen dvd's YIKES! So one year and about 10 thousand plus dollars later, I am still here at the HTF. I think my growth with this forum has been tremendous over the past year. So much knowledge (so many upgrades.) Well actually a year ago today I bought my RPTV and HTB. But it was because of this forum, I joined a week after I bought the TV. What did you do with your first year of HTF?
