The Many Components of Surround Sound Systems
Why do we go to a movie theater? We want entertainment with the full experience. You can get the biggest TV available, but chances are the speakers will not be as big as the screen. You're not willing to settle for a singularly lop-sided experience. So to get the most of your home theater, you will need to have movie theater-like surround sound.
For the optimum set-up, you have several choices, primarily surround sound or a sound bar. What are the differences?

Surround sound is enriching the depth of sound reproduction by using multiple speakers that surround a listener. A home surround sound system will provide better audio than both a sound bar or your TV's original speakers.
Using a Sound Bar
A sound bar is a type of speaker that projects audio from a wide enclosure. A sound bar comes directly from the area of the television. The sound bar is a step up from the original speakers in your TV because it provides better quality along a greater distance.
What to Expect with Surround Sound Equipment
You have decided that surround sound is the way to go for your media room. Now you still have several choices, which vary in affordability. Here are a few examples:
All systems discussed above come with remotes that are either wired to the hardware or wireless. With all the other remotes that go with your A/V equipment, you're probably thinking, "Oh great. Another remote to get lost in the couch cushions." However, one benefit you get from installing with Grand Slam is that we can consolidate all your systems into one remote … and that remote is on your phone!
