Using the 5.1 System
Here we are talking about remote control. As an impressive effect, master volume control adjusts automatically when you turn volume up or down from your remote. Also, each time you insert system on standby, master volume control gradually shifts to lowest value to remove unlikable surprise that may come next time you turn it on.
Once all was hooked up and located in best positions, then go to testing. Initially I listened to some of my favorite music tracks. The subwoofer is too powerful, so you must fine tune its volume so that it won't damage your experience.
The sound quality is outstanding. Although declared "40Hz~20kHz" frequency response rate, system can go below 40 Hz in certain situations. The system continues with higher frequencies. The mid-range is solid, focused, and rich. Thus, detail is the middle range of frequencies.
The subwoofer boots in at frequencies higher than 50 Hz, and it is able to reach very high frequencies. It was intended particularly for movies rather than music tracks. Unless you obtain provoked by thundering booms, your subwoofer won't help that much when listening to music. It does nothing but boom.
About movies are worried, subwoofer actually helps. Similar goes for all satellites because joint they can make that renowned "Dolby Surround" kind of experience. Watching movies with 5.1 expands your involvement in movie because of action, dialog, and special effects occur around you.
The mentioned attribute is particularly essential for gamers. They can immerse themselves in virtual reality of games with auditory effects around them. And as cutting edge 3D graphics are able to replicate the reality, combining them with sounds lets you engage almost all of your senses.
Here we discuss the shortfalls of this audio system. Remember that it's a mid-end 5.1 home theater system, nothing cutting-edge, and nothing that promises excellent professional quality. I experienced distortions on high frequencies, particularly coming from satellites. Though, these are to be expected with non-bleeding-edge speakers.
The other main issue is that if it is not organized well then you end up hearing some type of "compression effect," which is rather distasteful. Moderation is all. Balance must not be ignored. Generally sound quality is bright and rich, the subwoofer truly booms without getting tired, and satellites deliver surround effects as assured.
