Speakers: For a 5.1 system, you’ll find 2 speakers standing or to put on the shelf, a centre speaker, 2 rear speakers and a subwoofer. A 7.1 sound system will have 2 additional speakers (right now it’s not worth spending more money on such a system, as DVDs and Blu-rays only have 5.1 sound).
Obviously, you have to have a worthwhile TV, and that offers you good image quality. It also has to be the right size for your living room.
