Now that you already have an HDTV or know which one you’re going to get after reading yesterday’s posting, the next thing you’ll need for a great Super Bowl party is a sound system that can deliver the full impact of all the action during the game. You want your guests to hear and even feel every play as if they’re right there on the field with the Cardinals and the Steelers, delivering bone-crunching hits that will drown out the loud crunching of tortilla chips in your entertainment room.
Sony Bravia Theater Micro System
If your party space is fairly small, you might want to go with a mini home-theater system or a Soundbar to reduce the size or number of speakers you have scattered around the room. The Sony Bravia Theater Black Micro System (model DAVIS50B) features a compact design but still delivers a room-filling 5.1-channel surround-sound experience. The system’s S-Master Digital Amplifier offers Digital Cinema Sound (DCS) technology, while the five golf ball-sized speakers and unique subwoofer can easily be placed out of the way of your guests.
Yamaha Digital Sound Projector
In the Soundbar category, Yamaha’s Black Digital Sound Projector (model YSP900BK) is a single component that packs 82 watts of total power in its digital amplifier, creating a true multi-channel surround sound by individually driving 21 sound beam drivers and two woofers. The sound is so realistic, you’ll swear the defense is in your room, closing in on you to make the tackle. Or is that some of your guests trying to grab your pizza?
Onkyo 7.1 Channel Home Theater Receiver
For a larger room, you might want to go with a separate home-theater receiver and some larger speakers. The Onkyo 7.1 Channel Home Theater Receiver (model TXSR876B) offers a full range of features, including 140 watts per channel and Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding. We carry a huge selection of speakers to complement this receiver, including the MK Sound 5.1 Channel Home Theater Speaker System (model MKMOVIE). It features six separate audiophile-quality speakers, including three K-5 front loudspeakers, two K-4 tripole surround loudspeakers, and a KX-10 subwoofer so you can feel the rumble on the field.
