This is not really "off topic", but it is out of place in the other forums. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that most of the people here started with decent, budget equipment and then moved up the ladder. I'm also going to say while you saved up for all of the amazing equipment, you acquired more and more knowledge about HT. Do you think if you went back in time with the knowledge of calibration, room acoustics, room treatments and tweaks you have today that the "budget" equipment would sound a LOT better? If yes, how much better? Any thoughts?
