I don't know Richard. I suppose it depends on what you watch. We watch lots of good shows, like Bones, Castle, NCIS, NCIS LA, Two and a Half Men, Mike and Molly, Supernatural, Arrow, Beauty and the Beast, Haven, Lost Girl, Deception, The Good Wife, White Collar, Suits, Law and Order, CSI, CSI, New York, Blue Bloods, Justified, just to name a few. They are all broadcast in 5.i and sound great on my system. Not to mention sports and movies. IMO if you are not taking advantage of the sound provided for consumption by the networks then you're missing a big part of the home entertainment experience.
