I remember my AP Biology teacher said this back in high school: "The human eye can process much more information than the human ear." If that's the case, with regards to audio/video setups - would it be a bigger bang for the buck to have a high-end projector and mid-level audio gear, or super exotic audio gear and a mediocre TV?
Which would you prefer and why? The reason is I've turned the downstairs rig into a surround setup, and it's not much better than a 2-channel setup IMO. In fact I prefer the 2 channel more. However, with a small TV - it seems like you need to have surround sound to be immersed in the experience.
Note: I am not a biology major so I haven't investigated this further. Was just wondering.
