What is Surround Sound?

Surround sound audio is, simply put, sound that completely surrounds you. It projects high-quality digital sound from all angles just as though you were in a theater.

The terms 5.1, 6.1, and 7.1are used to categorize a surround sound system based on the number of speakers used.

Benefits of a Surround Sound System

Surround sound audio is, simply put, sound that completely surrounds you. Surround sound, at its most basic, involves a set of stereo front speakers (left and right) and a set of surround speakers, which are usually placed just to the side and just behind a central listening position. Surround sound is created by multiple speakers linked by a receiver. Surround sound changes the way you watch and listen to entertainment. While there is little difference between having a five speaker surround sound system and one that has seven, but more speakers allows you to create a more toned listening experience, as you can include more sound on the sides or near the back.

Surround Sound encircles the audience (left-surround, right-surround, back-surround), as opposed to "screen channels" (center, [front] left, and [front] right)
