wow. all I can say.
The OP, Oscar, wants a surround system. He wants to know if it's better than his 'boot box' unit he currently owns. The answer is yes.
To respond like you did shows your bias.
"Better" is my opinion, which is what the OP was asking for... others' opinions. He can take it or leave it. I just hope he can see from your vitriolic response where your 'bias' lies.
To add a little skin to the game, I've posted an open invitation in the "I'll demo my speakers..." AND the "I'll demo my subwoofers..." thread, for any member here to come into MY HOUSE, to hear for themselves. Have you?
mods, can we have a 'dislike' button ?
