It is worth something to me to be able to record AND skip through commercials. I guess that's why I'll never really "cut the cord". That's especially true with watching sporting events. I can...

Did you get a center channel to or this mostly for music?

Even for music a small sub would really improve sound as the speakers only go down to 72hz.
