    Arrow Front rendered surround sound is not a gimmick



    Yes, we know what you're thinking because it is what we used to; but after some extensive testings with the latest SRS front rendered surround sound technologies, we can't call it a gimmick anymore than any other surround sound we've tried. Now that we've gotten that off our chest, we would like clarify what technologies like SRS TheaterSound and SRS TruSurround HD are; both are sound processing technologies that enhance two speaker systems, and while we won't call them a gimmick, we won't be throwing our rear speakers away just yet.

    Gentlemen I haven't had time to get it yet. As soon as I do I will put it through its paces. Granted it will be a low end one but it should do what I need it too.

    I have heard numerous variations on this SOUNDBAR theme some of them are excellent Quasi-surround sound producers. but the trick to achieving that surround effect is the rooms shape and where the various openings are (doorways / windows / alcoves) these speaker create their effects by bouncing the signal off of surround reflecting walls.

    as shown in this illustration:

    That graphic looks like it's from the Yamaha Sound Projector stuff. The Yamaha stuff works very well and is less room dependaet than other approaches because Yamaha uses a microphone to measure room acoustics and an EQ system to tailor driver output to the specific environment. It's also very adjustable and allows user input to improve on the machine's decisions.
