Surround sound has become a buzzword in the audio world. People know that it is a good thing and can make their home sound great, but what exactly is surround sound?

Surround Sound is a system of stereophonic sound involving five or more speakers surrounding the listener to create a more realistic acoustical effect. It provides a sound from a 360 degree radius on a two dimensional level. Surround sound enhances the perception of sound by exploiting the listener’s ability to locate detected sound by distance and location. If you are watching a movie and a plane flies overhead, having ceiling and/or wall speakers as part of your surround sound will give you the ability to hear the plane fly over and fade off into the distance, creating a much more realistic viewing experience. The most common surround is 5.1 which consists of five speakers and one subwoofer.
