Speakers Surround without Surrounding

Watching a movie, playing a video game or even watching television these days, the focus seems to be all about high definition. Yet what you hear is really just as important as what you see. And while what we’re seeing on the screen is still pretty much two dimensional, three dimensional sound can truly enhance the viewing experience.

The whole idea about sound that surrounds you is to give you an immersive experience to what you are observing. In the real world, even with your eyes closed, you can tell where something is related to your position as well as the direction it’s moving and how close it is to you. These audible dimensions are what movie theatres try to create even when you’re watching a two dimensional screen. Just look at the walls when you walk in to your local movie house and check out the rows of speakers on the walls all around you. That really nice television setup you recently purchased or are going to buy more than likely has the ability to surround you in some kind of digital sound and if you don’t have the right speakers set up in the proper manner, you’re really shortchanging yourself. Speakers can really make or break the overall experience. So while you’re keeping your eye on the ball, make sure you also keep your ear to the ground.
