What was it that made you pull the trigger for a good 2-channel rig? Hearing it at a friends house, spending too much for HT and having to keep upgrading to keep up with the formats, vinyl, a killer set of speakers, it's all you could afford and have never left, you simply didn't like HT effects, room constraints, WAF, your Uncle Joe's rig when you were young...........?
When did it dawn on you 2-channel freaks that this was the direction you wanted to go?
For me it was hearing my Uncle Tommy's rig way back when I was 8 or 9 years old and then after trying HT and blowing boookoo bucks to get it up and running, only to find out the sound wasn't up to par and add to the fact that every time I turned around, I had to buy something else to be compatible....that right there made me sell all my HT gear and go 2-channel and I've been hooked ever since.
For what it's worth, I'm not looking back either. ;)
