Years ago, I bought a second hand projector. I used to project movies BIG on a white sheet right in front of the couch. Stereo speakers on either side.
A few years after that, I moved into a small 1 bedroom flat. That was when I started getting into surround sound.
We used to play movies no a 5.1 surround sound system, and watch the movie on a laptop screen. It was a deeper more immersive experience. “Consumers” havn’t realised this.
