|Comments on HT System:||I find using a quality preamp processor for home theater is just as beneficial to performance as in a music system.|
I have found using a quality subwoofer makes a surprising improvement in my surround sound presentation.
I feel too many in the home theater hobby under estimate the importance of timbre matching ALL speakers.
