    New member here and joined thanks to Todd's help.

    I jumped into home theater back in 2015 when I decided to install a projector and needed to upgrade my ancient receiver. The local AV shop almost laughed at me when they heard I was planning on using tiny satellite speakers with a 100 inch screen. Thankfully, they set me on the right path with a nice Klispch RP 5.1 setup.

    I decided to upgrade again this year with Dolby Atmos, which sent me spiraling down the rabbit hole. First, I thought I would just grab two upfiring speakers and get a receiver that could do Atmos. This led to a serious upgrade in a receiver to the Marantz SR6013. Of course, I then wanted rear Atmos, so I had to buy an amplifier for those additional speakers (I have the receiver also running two speakers in another room for music). Then I made the mistake of posting my setup on Reddit where I was shamed for my 15 year old Polk sub, and rightfully so. I made up for that by going with the SVS PB-3000 (sorry to my neighbors).

    Now, a few months later and several thousand poorer, I'm rocking a 5.1.4 setup that I'm completely loving.

    Really happy to roll out the red carpet for Nick. He happens to share one of my great passions: collecting/playing pinball. Although, I think it's a forgone conclusion that Nick would serve me as breakfast, lunch and, dinner in a head-to-head matchup. He's a really (read: really) good player! But I do think our interest in buying/selling games is probably neck and neck :devil:.

    Correct me if I'm I wrong, Nick, but we first met at a big collector's event some 4 (maybe 5) years ago... I think we both took turns on an America's Most Haunted prototype. We don't cross paths often, but Nick has an amazing pinball podcast and stream that I consume on a monthly basis. He and his co-host are highly respected for their craft.

    As for HT... I agree with @Tony V., sounds like a great system. Reading your progression, it sounds like you're hooked. Next thing you know you'll be cutting through drywall and running speaker wire for in-ceiling Atmos channels :T :spend:.

    The PB-3000 is serious business!
