Surround sound is everywhere. The only thing that’s annoying about it is that it’s a bit of a pain to set up. That’s why you should get a wireless surround sound system. Don’t be misled by the term wireless here. Wireless just means that the rear speakers will definitely be wireless. The subwoofer might be wireless (but will need a power source) and the front speakers can be wireless depending on the system. Some “wireless surround sound systems” only have the rear speakers wireless, so watch out for that.
First, you need to choose how many speakers you want. The simplest one is the 5.1 wireless surround sound system. Any setup with less speakers is not considered surround sound. There are several ways you can go about choosing a wireless surround sound system.
The first way is to narrow down your search by only looking at certain brands. Depending on how knowledgeable you are in this area, you should have some favourite audio brands. Some good brands include Sony, Logitech, Creative Labs, Samsung, Panasonic, Vizio, Philips, LG, Creative, and any other brands you can think of.
Whether or not you’ve narrowed down your search to specific brands, you’ll still want to be at the stage where you will look at specific features. All surround sound systems should have Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II and DTS Digital Surround technologies. The better ones will also have Dolby TrueHD. Dolby Digital and DTS are the basic surround sound technologies, whereas Pro Logic is for converting stereo sound into surround sound.
TrueHD is for lossless HD audio. Besides the technologies, you can look at remote control settings, multiple inputs, easy connections, big speakers, or vertical speakers. When I say vertical speakers, I mean the ones that look like mini skyscrapers. Those speakers are the best if you’re going for amazing quality. Otherwise, you can buy speakers that are smaller.
If you’re not satisfied with just a 5.1 system, you can get a 6.1 or 7.1 wireless surround sound system. This would only really be necessary for a large room. Even if you have quite a large room, you can still go for a high quality 5.1 channel one.
The best wireless surround sound system for you could be any system if you’re not an overly technological person. If the whole process scares you a bit, just go for a mid-range 5.1 surround sound system by a reputable brand. You really can’t go wrong, unless you want something more powerful. All surround sound systems deliver excellent quality. But some deliver mind-blowingly amazing quality. It’s your choice.
