    Please participate in this poll regarding your audio setup.

    NOTE: Disregard the sat carrier DirecTV in the polls title. This poll is for ALL sat carriers.

    I don't participate in "public" polls. Why do you want -or- need to know who voted and which way they voted?

    Good day Nick.

    Okay you caught me. I represent an anonymous international congromerlate whose goal is to create a proprietary audio system that will be sold to every sat carrier. One implemented, sat customers must buy the aforementioned audio system in order to receive sat entertainment transmissions.

    This poll is public so the congromerlate can bombard poll respondents with subliminal messages to be embedded into to your programing.

    Please keep this secret information just between us. Those black helicopters people see hovering over our homes are for real!

    ;)

    Seriously, I equate names to level of expertise. Before retirement I was a Logitisican so I'm very interested in details. And Nick, you are a golden asset to this site. I'm sure you have forgotten more about such technology than I ever knew.

    Best Regards,
    Louis

    Just one thing. A 2.1 is not Left, Right, Center. That is a 3.0. A 2.1 is Left, Right, Subwoofer. The .1, or .2 are subs.

    I also have a 3.1.

    I'd be ashamed to post if I was....:lol:

    Among audiophiles, Bose is a four-letter word...:D

    Bose strength is in marketing, not audio reproduction. They had some stuff in the 70's and 80's that was stellar.

    I should have added "Other" to the boxes I checked, as my LR system is L,R,C and a sub.

    You can do better, and for less money....look around and you'll be pleasantly surprised when you want an HT system.
