Apartment stereo sound to surround sound ?
Currently I have a 2.1 stereo set up and was thinking of getting surround sound as I recently bought a new TV.
The main room is both the kitchen and living room. At one end of the room is sofa and TV and the other kitchen. Where I sit and watch the TV Sofa to TV (wall to wall) is 300 cm.
The room is much longer but I don't intend to re orient things and just use the width. Would you go for surround sound ? My sofa is against the wall and you can't fit speakers behind me (maybe bookshelf's on stands on the side of the sofa).
From 2.1 to 5.1 means a new more expensive receiver and I may loose music quality.
