Right, but both sources in this case are excellent.


And, you know what I mean. I don't want IQ sacrificed for speed unless I tell it to be sacrificed for speed. I bought the thing, it should be my damn choice how fast it runs.
OK, but if reviewers stare at two systems playing the same game with the intention to find IQ differences, but cannot, is IQ really being sacrificed?


And for the record, they make speakers that are $100,000. $20 grand is nothing to spend on a speaker.
Of course, the sky is limitless. But $20,000 is most certainly not 'nothing' to spend on a speaker. In fact, most would argue anything over $500 is a lot to spend on a speaker. And, being that I used to work in a hifi store, I can tell you that as you go up the ladder, the differences dramatically get smaller and smaller as the price goes up. Just out of curiousity, what are you running for audio?
We're all in it together.
