I wish I could say she likes the HT, but honestly I don't think she notices. She has picture and sound, and that's enough. I believe I mentioned the time one of my tweeters went out. She was watching something, I walked in and immediately asked "what's wrong with the system". "Nothing, why?". "Doesn't sound right." Within a few minutes I isolated the offending tweeter. Once I replaced it, she still didn't notice.


In a way that’s a compliment. The system is transparent to content. Elly’s the same. And it isn’t she’d be satisfied with lesser but that various increments – while thought out as to making the system better – emphasizes content further. I have noticed with certain changes to the system Elly enters that ‘content zone’ sooner. That what she and 1poorgal fixate on. Most do. As I said, a compliment.

It isn’t that Elly isn’t interested in the technology. She is yet not deeply. In that I mean it isn’t a great concern if the sound is 13.2 or 5.1 or Dolby or DTS while to me it is. We have nine speakers in the front, two speakers on either side of the seats, and four behind. To Elly that adds to the system transparency so content (supported by sound) is entered.

We got Downton Abbey and, within 15 minutes Ely was hooked. We went in to Bad-Kids-Mode (watching three episodes each evening far too late into the night) and, know what, Elly didn’t even mention that it was upscaled from 480 to 1080p and the sound was massaged into 13.2. She was more interested in what was said, who said it, and what did they mean by what they said.
