    Welcome to AR. I remember around the time surround sound was taking off there wasn't even a center channel and the big demo VHS was Top Gun, which is being released on Blu-ray, it would be interesting to see how the soundtrack turns out. Before surround sound the big deal was getting your MTV in stereo and to play through your stereo

    Welcome, I remember when the center channel and Dolby pro Logic became a big deal because the shop I worked in then would not stop Jurassic Park from playing all day with the Pro logic receiver(Yamaha) running Sound Dynamic floorstanders in the front with a center channel and mono rear channel bookshled style speakers and everyone thought that was a big deal. I remember that the rear channels were not even powerful enough to add to much I think they were only like 15 or 20 watt IC amps running the rear speakers. It seems now with Dolby and DTS having high bit versions with multiple channels that the changing will slow down a bit. I still can't believe some processors are putting out 9 to 12 channels of surround information. Talk about too many speakers in 1 room.

    I owned that sub too. I gave it to my girlfriend, but it had a very nice sound. Sometimes I want it back for a second system, but that would be indian giving. Once I used it with a pair of System Audio speakers and it sounded fantastic as a fun system. That servo really made it sound good. Too bad they don't make it any more.

    Hi from south of Chicago.
