    Default Hello Polkies

    Hi everyone. I've been poking around these forums the past few days...seems like a nice place. I finally decided to register, so I'm just saying hello.

    I'm on the verge of taking the plunge into creating a home theater, and there's been lots of good advice and help from these forums. So thanks for all your posts!

    I think you like to claim you're tough on us newbies, but really, deep down inside, you're just a bunch of softies. :p

    I'm looking to buy my first real avr/speakers. No more of this HTiB business. Nothing too fancy, though, I've got other bills to pay!

    It's already too late. When I first decided it was time for upgrades, my budget was about $400.

    That didn't last long :p

    It gets WAY worse, trust me.... I came on here mainly to find info on a pair of speakers that i already had, and to find out if 11Ts were good speakers.

    It all snowballed from there. I think i was happier before i knew anything. :D

    It's a good place, they aren't hard on newbies. Only morons.
    I don't read the newsssspaperssss because dey aaaallllllllll...... have ugly print.
