Surround Sound

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.

The best home theatre setup has a quality, but not excessively expensive, surround sound system. Samsung surround sound systems are ideal in this area. We’ll find out what kind of regular features you may want, and also look at the specific sound technologies behind surround sound systems. You should definitely be familiar with terms such as “Dolby Digital”, which tells you what kind of surround sound technology is behind the system. We’ll also look at some specific Samsung models.

The simplest, cheap Samsung surround sound systems actually still have high quality sound and connection. These may lack remote control settings, multiple inputs, easy connection or long cords for your speakers, depending on the sound system you’re buying.

Better Samsung surround sound systems 5.1, or even 7.1 channels, should have all of these features though. But, if you can manage having simple features with a cheap price, go for the simple 5.1 channel surround sound system with small speakers. A perfect example of this is the Samsung HT-Z310T 5.1-Channel Home Theater Surround Sound System.

The cheaper sound systems will have simple Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II and DTS Digital Surround technologies, whereas the more expensive ones will have higher sound quality with technologies such as Dolby TrueHD. To be honest, a surround sound system is a surround system. Although you shouldn’t compromise on quality, there isn’t much you can compromise on unless you have a large room. If you have a large room, you will want larger speakers, and more speakers.

A 7.1 channel surround sound system will be more appropriate than a 5.1 channel one, in that case. But be wary that you can’t just upgrade a 5.1 system to a 7.1 system with the same subwoofer, because the subwoofer will only have plugs for the system it was designed for. Some systems come with vertical speakers and are ideal for the richest experience, such as the Samsung 7.1 Channel Blu-ray 3D Home Theater System.

The last option you can look at is going wireless. Samsung wireless surround sound home theater systems are great if you want to have speakers that are not tethered by wires. It’s pretty hard to hide cords in a clean space, especially with the rear speakers, so you’ll probably want to consider going for a rear wireless system. It’ll allow your rear speakers to be wireless, but not the rest of the speakers.

If you want to have the ultimate movie feel inside your home, well I suggest you get a wireless surround sound speaker system. This is what a movie-lover should definitely get a hold of! Since our world just keeps on innovating, these speakers have also been improved and the sound you’ll be able to get from these speakers is really incredible.

Now when we hear the term ‘wireless surround sound‘, it doesn’t actually pertain to a system not having wires for it to function. The whole system actually needs wires to get connected but unlike the models before, these recent models don’t have that many wires and it comes to wireless speakers. Many speakers still require a cord for power, but do not need extra wires to connect it up to the main system.

What are the benefits of having a wireless surround sound system?

Obviously it is its wireless functionality. You can put your speakers anywhere you desire without the hassle of thinking where the wires are going to be placed. You can also configure the system easily to get the best setup for the room you’ll place the speakers in, whether it be for a small room or a massive room. Lastly, since you’ll be running on wireless technology, you won’t be struggling with troubleshooting in the future. No more confusing colored wires and figuring out where to plug in what.

What’s the disadvantage of these wireless systems? wireless surround sound

Well a major downside to it is the electrical power for each speaker. Customarily, powered speakers are linked by wires and the current they get would come from the amplifier. Since speakers these days are wireless, it will need its own power source to each speaker. They will indeed need to be plugged into a wall outlet separately.

If you’re questioning why this would even be called wireless or cordless, it’s again because of the fact that unlike before, these speakers needed to be connected to each other wired before it can function, whereas now, it can function independently. It’s easier to use without running long speaker cables all over the place. But again with ‘the catch’ that it will need a power source.

Wireless surround sound systems are one’s best technology when talking about turning your living rooms, bedrooms or other parts of your house into a movie-like-atmosphere. The pieces for these systems are expensive as the quality of these wireless surround sound speakers is really amazing! There are benefits and downsides, but these are more than your average surround sound systems.

Remember if you are really tight on budget, then you could just get yourself a pair of wireless surround sound headphones. These cordless headphones or gaming headphones provide great sound quality, and a great sound stage for a fraction of the cost. At the end of the day, it all comes down to your budget and this is going to decide whether you can afford to go wireless or not.
