Listening too loud does not mean good because the more loud listen the more sophisticated system you need to hear clean sound and little distortions. That is mostly achieved in A class amping and is expensive. I am corny may be but i prefer 2 channel stereo to any 5.1 despite having dedicated Denon home cinema setup as well. I just appreciate class A amping and separates delivering clean current into my three way floorstanders. As one guest noted at my home the sound is simply holographic, he could not believe this was only two channel because he thought this was quadrophonic :-)
So i would not discard home setup so easily.
