He's actually a good friend of mine, and at that time listening to Incubus. He was loving every second of it.

There's only 3 cinema in my district... but only one of it that I am willing to go to! One of it's speakers sound purely explosive and there's no surround feeling at all? The one I always go to sound excellent! Perfect for movies!

YKYAAW you choose which cinema to go to by judging their speakers SQ xD

You know you're an audiophile when you're skeptical about non-audio related comparisons and think "did you do an ABX or blind test?"
i.e. Pepsi vs Coca-Cola, grass-fed cattle vs grain-fed, etc.


You know you're an audiophile when you only call headphones by their model name and someone asks you what that is.
i.e. What's the LCD-2? Liquid Crystal Display?

YKYAA when the money you've spent on dedicated audio equipment magically multiplies by more than 8 times in 6 months.

Yes yes yes! The best sit to my experience for movies in cinema is in the middle... That way you can get the true surround and the worse to me is the very corner... Oh wow the surround is near useless at this point to me...

Yyou know you're a LAZY audiophile when you are too lazy to switch on your desktop for a full desktop audio set-up (using a desktop ->higher end amplifier/DAC) so you just use your iPhone connect to a random portable amplifier tongue.gif

YKYAA when your looking for the perfect portable rig and it gets bigger than your backpack while you´re calling it "portable". YKYAA when someone ask you if it is portable and in order to believe your own lie you answer "transportable"

YKYAA when you search "stax" on craigslist and you get super excited when you see this:
http://eugene.craigslist.org/ele/4163896605.html

 

and then you google SR-40s and find that they're not all that good and that $90 is actually not a great deal at all.

Nobody knows Dolby atmos? It's actually quite cool.

Meh, I know Atmos and it's a nice system, especially when you see IMAX films with it, but this is a headphone forum...

 

Though, I do wonder what people are thinking about 22.2 surround sound and its 'home' applications (it's the sound standard for UHD if you're wondering)

It would be the solution and question for Dolby who as they say want to see Atmos in home cinemas somehow, probably via this nutty 22.2 setup.

 

I mean, just the placement would be difficult, let alone purchasing that many 'good' speakers, but you would probably only do it for your dedicated home theatre room and if you're building a house around it, you can probably splash the cash.

 

Tee hee, 22.2 surround system with B&W Diamonds might just be something i'd pay to see!

Those who made the film gravity did a cool job with the sound with Dolby atmos

You know you're an audiophile when you're so used to spending $xxx on something and anything less seems trivial to you. $5 for 4 bottles of overpriced Starbuck's frappuccinos? Meh, that's like pocket change compared to the $600 on my last audio purchase. >.>

The opening sequence of sounds was next level.
