Hi and thanks.
So I have the Sony CT100 and the Phillips 8100, I am picking up the Samsung x810 tomorrow.
My confusion is as follows:
Knowing all 3 of these systems have subwoofers....the sony has a 3 speaker soundbar, the phillips has a 6 speaker soundbar (3 tweets/3 mids) and the samsung has a 2 speaker sound bar.
I am hoping the samsung blows me away but ....
how can I expect a 2 speaker soundbar to provide a better virtual surround experience than a soundbar that has 6 (phillips) or even 3 (sony) speakers to take advantage of?
Is there something I am missing here? More speakers seem like they should be able to direct different sounds better than 2 but Samsung has clearly marketed this system as a 2.1 virtual replacement.
If someone can shed some light here it would be appreciated as I am probably not the only one wondering about this.
Thanks and appreciate the time.
