Multimedia, AV Let's do some blatant copy/paste from Ars Technica. A few days ago they ran a story called "What's in your home theatre system?". This poll wasn't so much about listing specific speaker types or amplifier models as it was about a number of more recognisable devices you could vote for. Let's copy their idea, but make it more open: what's in your home theatre setup - and list everything, from CD player to DVR to the type of cabling used. Be as anal about is as you want. Read on for my setup.

Specs. No listing of nuts-and-bolts specs. No demonstration of an appreciation of the actual acoustics and carefully chosen components as such (mix-and-match setups leaves me suspicious if this is actually understood). Audiophile snob stuff: distortion rates, frequency ranges, crossover points, speaker placement, how it sounds for music as well as movies, and with which music. Speaker designs: is it ported, enclosed, size of actual speaker dishes, etc.

I don't think you were anal enough. I'm not sure how many others were anal enough either. Plenty have been able to go into fantastic detail about their programs and PC hardware and yet can't do the same for their home audio/video systems...? Perhaps PC speakers have been far too shitty for far too long.
