    Surround sound systems.

    I been randomly planning out my eventual upgrade to surround, I have an odd setup with 3 20$ 2.1 systems for center and front, wired the side to go to the front as well. But I have noticed the sound volume is bascily halved when you change the system from stereo to surround....whose the moron that did this? I want to harm them....

    Anyway I was looking at 500-1000Watt real watt Surround systems around 300$ is not that so bad, Logictech has some okay ones but at 100 more I question if its quality or brand name upping the price would love a wireless setup IE no satellite speaker wires for under 500.. but I am not finding much...

    Also would be nice if it had acouple toslink inputs....

    Windows 8.1 full version

    Look into some denon systems. They have varying price ranges and are an awesome system. I got a 500 dollar 5.1 system that came complete with all speakers and sub. I love it. It's wired though. Didn't look for a wireless system.
