Re: Which new piece of equipment has exceeded your expectations?

Been exposed to audio for decades from my Dad, who had some really good setups (that I can't even recall the components of, including a stereo setup that imaged so amazingly in 3D, with my eyes closed, I felt I could take a bag of golf balls and lobbing them one at a time, hit each band member square on the forehead).

The biggest WOW factor for me though, was adding the Seaton Submersive HP's to my setup. First time I'd ever heard single digit capable sound with prodigious output.

It was annoying having my previous subs clip on scenes like Tron:Legacy, WOTW and HTTYD, but now the alien tripod emerging scene from WOTW is one of my all time favorite demo scenes. Had some folks saying that they didn't feel that scene was that impressive, citing what they thought were better scenes, like the train crash from Super 8, that is, until they realized that their setups fell off a cliff below 20Hz, and were never capable of reproducing the ULF content in WOTW.

The first time they hear it in my HT, the reaction is usually along the lines of, "HOLY S##T!!! I never even knew THAT was there in the soundtrack! Always wondered why people rave about that scene... NOW I get it!"

There's something incredibly amusing about taking interactive theater to a whole new level. When the Kremlin explodes in MI:4 and the ground onscreen heaved up, the suspended flooring in my HT did so too, hard enough to knock stuff over!
