A few years ago 5.1 surround sound DVD video players looked likely to become standard kit in every living room in the technology friendly world.
So now a few years on, what has happened to the original promise of surround sound music? Well the answer to that is ‘lots, but not nearly enough.’
For those that don’t know already, 5.1 surround sound is basically five speakers and a sub-woofer placed around your room allowing you to listen to music or a movie soundtrack literally surrounded by speakers. The film industry pioneered it for theatres and it then became available as a DVD player add-on for home entertainment systems.
Now at least 100,000,000 people world-wide own systems, which can and should be used for all manner of surround sound music DVDs.
I hear you say, ‘but surround sound music on DVD hasn’t really caught on. All that wire in my living room’.
Even though the consumer can buy a DVD player and surround speaker system cheaply enough, surround sound music hasn’t really caught fire yet. Why?
There are reasons why we should all remain confident that surround sound music will become more popular, but at the moment it’s still an infant child.
