  1. No room is too small for surround sound.
  2. A surround system doesn’t have to be big to be effective.
  3. A good sound system can make the difference between a mediocre home theater system and one that’s top-notch.

  4. A surround system can be enjoyed even when played at volumes that don’t blow the neighbors away.
  5. You might be surprised at the difference surround sound can make in a sports telecast!
