Let’s discuss audio in this week’s poll. Do you have surround sound in your home theater, or are you an old-school two-channel stereo listener? Are you still stuck with the TV’s built-in speakers, or do you have a tricked-out multi-channel system with speakers in every nook and cranny of the room?
I’ve tried to accommodate a lot of different possibilities in the voting options for the poll below. I expect that the majority of our readers probably have a tried-and-true 5.1 audio set-up with three channels across the front, two surrounds and a subwoofer. That’s the default standard for modern feature film soundtracks, after all.
I run a 7.1 system with two center back channels in my home theater. What do you have?
