YOU HATE WIRES SO MUCH YOU ARE GOING TO SACRIFICE YOUR MUSIC?
There ain't a wireless system in existence that has enough bandwidth to transmit my music.
You own a nice, modestly priced set of Bose. You sure as hell didn't spend a jillion dollars on your wireless.
You are worried about what to do about your center channel. Wait until you hear the rears!
The whole object of surround is to so completely envelope the temporal lobe and other centers of the listener's brain that the illusion is almost complete.
Your consciousness is swept away into that world!
But guess what: if there is much disparity in how you perceive the sound coming from point and source, the illusion is broken.
Put simply, if any of the channels in your 5.1 have a substantially different
timbre, amplitude, time delay, etc. your mind will be instantly distracted.
During a movie, this really sucks the realism out of it. It is worse for me as a musician and critical listener when the music is compromised.
There are flat cables you can run under the carpet; my place is wired to the hilt and it looks really clean. If you spend the effort and a little $, check out the "wire management" stuff on the market - you wont be sorry.
