Alright Frosti7,Just try to explain to her logically, that spending 1k on a system is the same as taking 1k and throwing it away,
while spending alittle more would give you the benefits of value, investment, fun, listening experience, enjoyment....
For starters, welcome to the shack.
For second, don't let me ruin your welcome, but I'm going to have to take issue with your recent posts. Can't help but notice that you've hit several threads, and in almost every case, you've advocated spending more money as a cure-all.
I have to say, blindly spending more money is one of the least effective was t get more out of yousystem. Contrary to what you state above, $1k will get you a very nice system, one that, when correctly set-up, will sound better than poorly set-up Dalis.
Are better engineered speakers usually more expensive then poorly engineered speakers...yeah you bet. And then there are some poorly engineered speakers that cost an arm and a leg (glass speakers anyone?).
Step into my room, close your eyes, and tell me how much everything costs: http://realht.info/about_me.html
