For multi-channel fourpointtsurround you need a couple of surround speakers as well, making a 4. It is f;s1600 suited for the computer PC environment with a small surrounding.

But it’s just a deluxe control centre attached to some budget speakers. Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic. They came, instead, in tightly packed boxes containing static-bagged cards, manuals and software, with flat-packed boxes sent separately.

It was exceptionally clear, crisp and sharp. The seems like better value, but it’s only a 2.
