Maybe “home theater” is a bit of an overstatement. I’ve never been one of those guys who needs to have the surround sound speakers finely tuned to the acoustic profile of a room and the windows shaking. If I can understand the dialogue, I’m usually good.
I actually had contemplated NOT having a TV in the new nerd cave. But that feeling passed after about 10 seconds. Let’s face it, no self-respecting nerd would voluntarily exclude a TV from his or her den. My problem was that I had nowhere to put the TV. My wife suggested mounting it up high in the corner but that would’ve meant a pretty small screen and I’d have felt like I was sitting in a doctor’s office waiting room watching the Weather Channel.
