    Hello is that Linus? I’d like to make an enquiry about err, two supplementary auxiliary speakers, to go with my midi hi-fi system. Apropos, achieving surround sound.

    Women love to test their BF. If a guy changes and do what she says, she will consider him a weak man and turn into a house tyrant and beat him up mentally in her attempt to get him to rebel and say no to her. Most weak men do the opposite(Stockholm syndrome) and become even more pleasing, till she dumps him hard or ask for an "open relationship", so she can bang an Alpha male legally and punish her beta-male some more.
    Guys don't go down this dark path! Lead your relationship, before she dominates you. If you love gaming and it comes down to your computer or your relationship. Be prepared to stand your ground.

    Those are Mackie CR5BT 5" monitors, and definitely have a limited soundstage. I'd personally recommend a set of Adam A7Xs with a Sub10, or even Focal Twin6BEs with the Sub 6 (my old setup). Currently using Adam S3Hs with a matched Sub15 through a Grace m905. Vastly depends on whether you prefer the sound of Adam's ART tweeters (very open highs and upper mids) or Focal's Beryllium tweeters (excellent transient response, but I just couldn't wrap my head around the midrange).

    If I wasn't getting stuff for free and the old sound system sounds good closer up I'd just move the speakers forward so that they're closer to the sofa. Though I don't know if that would mess with the acoustics with them being further from the wall etc.

    There are plenty of cheap 5.1 Dolby Atmos surround system like this ladies/gents. I have a Samsung one I have paired with my C7 LG OLED for $130. Best purchase ever, and don't be afraid to go refurb from a legitimate retailer if $ is a concern (I got mine new for the record)

    I'm running two polk audio RTia9's and a polk S35 center channel. I have some shelf speakers for rears but I have yet to hook them up cause I want to upgrade the reciever to something with more oompf first. Those RTi's are wattage hungry
    I'd like to see that soundbar compete with the four 5 1/4" cones and the six 7"subwoofers my towers have. If a sound bar is enough to be girlfriend approved my setup would have her leaving a snail trail all across my house
