In my pursuit of audio and video nirvana, I’d lost sight of the practicality that I measure everything else by. I have two 175 pound subwoofers that sound absolutely incredible, but I could have spent 1000 less on two subs that were much smaller and still sound more than excellent. I had monstrous, boxy floorstanding Klipsch speakers that put out gobs of clean sound but cost 1800 a pair and only look prettier than excellent sounding speakers at considerably cheaper price points. I spent so much time thinking that if I didn’t have the best of the best, that I’d truly miss something from my home cinema experience. I was wrong.
To what am I referring? A media server of course. There are lots of pros and cons to using a media server as your one-stop shop for media consumption. Let’s go through some of them here so you can understand it a bit better.
There’s never a bad time to buy a tv, but if you’re looking to spend less money on a new tv read on…
Google’s definition of Bass – The low-frequency output of a radio or audio system, corresponding to the bass in music.
When you think of a bombastic and brutish sound, you probably think of the bass of a song or soundtrack. It can be forward and punchy or slow and sublime.
So my spending escapades haven’t stopped with a super sweet projector and screen….it now has trickled into a little thing called audio. I guess I had to take my own advice and invest in what would finally satisfy me from both the audio and video sides of home theater.
I am a pretty big home theater enthusiast (if you haven’t already noticed!) and I have always been looking for a really cool experience. I knew I was never going to be able to achieve that sweet spot if I stuck with a tv so I did what anyone would do, spend way too much on an awesome home theater projector and screen.
