But your brain knows when sound comes from the side or behind you! Top Gun sounds much better, even over broadcast TV, from even a 5.1 system. And even broadcast TV sound has effects which seem to originate not from two stereo speakers, but elsewhere. But certainly DVD movies or BlueRay movies have the best effects. --wilt In a message dated 11/29/2010 3:55:51 P.M. Pacific Standard Time, JayPax@xxxxxxxx writes: 2. Do you want surround sound? Maybe. But I only have two ears. I remember '4-channel stereo' that came out and died in the 1970s. Probably 'surround soud' is good for movies. But I am not a big movie watcher. I watch TV for mostly news and sports. 3. Does your U-verse have analog out, left and right stereo? YES.
