Well, I do not consider myself an audiophile, because I seek to 'remove the audio system' from the music, not have the system itself 'enhance' the music - the goal of many audiophiles. Personally, I could care less about multi-channel, 5.1, 7.1, or 9,573,547.1 sound! For me, reasonable frequency response and dynamics are more important. Our precious little TV speakers are capable of withstanding more dynamic impact than I think TV engineers give them credit for. True. Just horribly compressed. Those Nascars whipping by microphones mounted on the crash barrier sound like someone rapidly sweeping a concrete floor with a broom! And the roar of the crowd after a home run at Yankee Stadium over my surround system has the visceral impact of someone turning on a small tabletop fan. And the bat itself connecting with the ball? A little old lady snapping shut her purse: The frequency response is there, but little dynamic IMPACT. Now none of that requires "weeks in post-", does it? Just easing up a little on the rack settings.
