Quoted from jar155:
Stern and JJP have "loud" fans too. There's no point ...
It sounds like you'd care if it was a crappy bracket that kept breaking, but for 'peripheral sound/display/art/power', you don't care.
Bah. TNA is awesome because the entire game experience (sound, music, playfield art, lighting) is fantastic.
Swapping a few known-lame parts makes good sense to me - Scott's masterpiece deserves it. A game in my lineup deserves it.
If the game shipped with crappy speakers, people might be more vocal about improvements.
If I need to pay an additional $150 so that I don't have to pull/swap parts, no problem.
On a related note, when a TNA# order comes up, are there any options (lit speakers, etc)?
