Recently had been real busy at work due to some moron assigning moron's work to me...so there has not been time for sitting down to enjoy any movies...but have been fun watching some comedy drama with with on DVD (YES, it's SD DVD!), and it's on stereo only.

So, I've been thinking would any of you guys will just get fedup, with the setup you have but really got no time to enjoy it, would you just thinking of get rid of them and get a simple HTiB and get on with life with more empty space in the living room?

I told my wife that and she said I am crazy....

I will never part with my system, stepping down to a HTIB is crazy talk. I don't get to enjoy my system to it's fullest very often either but when I do it is a great feeling.

Ditto here. I might as well go back to a "Made in Japan" transistor radio they used to make back in the 1960's.

Edit: Are any of you old enough to remember when "Made in Japan" was stamped on all of the cheap junk?

Why on earth, if you already have a good Home Theatre, would you go to the effort of getting rid of it and replacing it with something inferior?

I just don't get it. I mean, you would have to do work to downgrade with no visible benefit. How much space are we seriously looking at? The footprint of your mains?

Getting rid of my sound system? Ahhhh! That's why I did things in the right order: complete sound system THEN girlfriend for life!

Sounds to me like you should get a less harassing job!

Unless you need the money, I agree with the crazy diagnosis. I assume your work can't take up 100% of your time forever. If you downgrade, you will just have a another bitter memory for those few and hopefully future times that you do get use it.

Whaddya tryin to get banned or something?? grin

Seriously, though, that kind of question on this forum (or any other A/V forum) is pretty much going to get you the same predictable responses. I'm with everyone else and say you're nuts, but I do realize that HT/music isn't everyone's cup of tea, so do what makes you happy.

If the experience of a good sounding movie/soundtrack/music CD just doesn't do anything for you, then maybe a HTIB is all you need. Or, if just seeing all that nice equipment sitting around being under-utilized really does stress you out to the point where it affects your quality / enjoyment of life, and you feel strongly that seeing more empty space instead will actually help improve your quality/enjoyment of life, then a HTIB is probably all you need.

If you do, OTHO, have any appreciation for the occasional good movie/soundtrack/music CD, then I think you will regret getting rid your setup.

I really do understand. You'll no longer worry about keeping up with the latest codices (?), wanting a new this and a new that, upgrading, upgrading, etc. It's like constantly having to "feed" one's PC.

The fact that your wife thinks it's a crazy idea should tell you something. And like it's been written here, to a man, you'd really, REALLY notice it's disappearance. There's a good reason those are such tried and true blues lyrics. "You gonna miss her when she gone [sic]."

I think I'd prefer to stay with outdated stuff than to use an HTIB. Oh wait, that's what I'm doing. And I don't use my system much, either. I use my Audiobytes a lot more.
