There are plenty of people, a large majority of males ages 20-40 in fact, who are completely self-impressed just by getting eight feet wide TV on their wall. They'll invite all their friends over for the football game or Nascar race and all slap eachother on the back at the fantastic upscale equipment. They are blind to the failings of a cheap business projector fed with SDTV and a set of JBL shelf speakers.

And that's okay. It wouldn't make ME happy, but I'm only one guy. It makes them happy, and they spent a lot less than I did, so more power to them. The polite thing to do is slap them on the back too and help them figure out the cable connections.

If they ever happen into my watching room I don't care if they're impressed or not. I spent the money for MYSELF to achieve the level of quality that makes ME happy.
