My rig is from the late 1970's to current decade. It's 2.0, maybe 2.1 one of these days, and I will never go 5.1 nor will I buy anything from a big box store. And I try to stay away when that stereo-in-a-box is on.
This is my third post. I have to say I'm glad I've found a forum with people that don't live in the Best Buy world.
