WotW with our friends in Middleburg/Arlington

WotW is now my favorite movie to show off the sound system (Chronicles of Riddick previously). I was happy to have eliminated some 'rattling' that plagued the first showing of this movie last week, and none was noticed this time around. I am not sure what was causing it, but happy that whatever we did fixed the issue, and the sound was tight and crisp. This movie definitely tests all components in the audio stream. Any misadjustments, and it sticks out like a sore thumb. Since the first showing, I had upgraded the 635 firmware and recalibrated the EQ. We had also added more sound insulation to the platform.

While others may complain of the lack of sharpness in the picture, I like the effect it gives. It makes the picture more 'eerie'. Chinese Take-out from P.F. Changs was provided by our company and it was extremely tasty. (Wonton soup, lettuce wraps, fried dumplings and calamari for appetizers. Peking Duck, Mongolian Beef, Sweet &Sour chicken, Spicy chicken, and BBQ ribs for the main courses). The lemon cookies were a nice finishing touch. This was the first time that we didn't fire up the popcorn machine, so you know the food was plentiful.

This was the first time that our guest had watched a movie at the recently completed G-SPoT, and from the enthusiasm and request for the next showing, I would venture to guess that they thoroughly enjoyed it.
