If space and budget considerations run a close second to sound quality when choosing a home cinema, then this neat 2.1-channel package from Onkyo is worth a closer look. Your days of thin sound will be o ver, with SRS processing technology creating an immersive 3D soundfield using just two speakers—perfect for movies, music, and games. But the real beauty of the system lies in its convenience. For example , the control center is preprogrammed for use with most TV remote controllers. It turns on automatically with your television and responds to volume commands from your TV remote. Two sculpted speakers—featuring a pair of 6.5 cm drivers each—can be mounted in a variety of ways on the wall or entertainment unit. The system is also great for music, with Bluetooth 2.1 allowing you to stream from your smart phone , tablet, and laptop. Analog and digital connections are included to connect a PC or CD player. Wireless implementation extends to the powered subwoofer, which can be placed anywhere in the room you like—another handy feature in what is an exceptionally useful home cinema system.
