5.1, 2.1 and other Surround Sound Systems

Surround sound audio is, simply put, sound that completely surrounds you. It means a speaker in virtually every corner of the room, projecting high-quality digital sound at you from all angles just as though you were in a theater.

Oh, but there’s so much more. It also means sound diversification, with deep, thunderous bass rumbling the floorboards as an explosion happens on screen, and subtle sound effects skittering and tapping behind you in a suspenseful scene. For music, it’s pure envelopment in the song you’re listening to.

In terms of nuts and bolts, it means a set of speakers, usually five including the all-important “center speaker,” and a subwoofer for powerful bass. This is where the term “5.1” comes from -- five speakers and a subwoofer. Below are definitions of the various parts of a surround sound system, as well as definitions of the various systems themselves.


People everywhere are becoming more and more concerned about the technical specifications in various consumer products and that is why they are looking for the information which describes these products to their best. There are various sources for the type of information from where people can get at them and feel comforted before buying any consumer product. The quest for the best sources of visual entertainment is on for a few decades now. It is quite an acceptable fact that science has given some very wonderful gadgets for personal and mass entertainment among which various types of televisions are certainly the most important ones. However, the choice is also getting varied each and every day. Today, the choice between LCD and LED TVs is certainly getting tougher and tougher. The battle of LCD vs. LED is continuing for quite some time now.

Samsung Galaxy S2 vs. iPhone 4S: Worthy winner is?

For several months the Samsung Galaxy S2 has been known as the best smartphone leading most of the lists of top smartphones. Many other manufacturers tried to create devices able to compete with it, but none succeeded – even Apples iPhone 4, according to most geeks I know, yielded to it in many aspects. Perhaps Samsung thought its Galaxy S2 was unreachable, but not so long ago Apple released the new iPhone 4S with a number of updated specs and features… and we all understood that the Galaxy S2’s position is now shaken.
