Ken, I think a lot of the perception of "quiet" also depends on the other devices and the noise floor in your room/home. Between the hard drives in the computer and DVR, the filter in the aquarium, the dishwasher, forced-air heat, etc., I'm not going to be challenging ANYONE for a optimal listening experience. But, you know, I live in the real world. No projector, no man-cave. On the other hand, I have a shared viewing experience with my family basically every day.
