you've never had the pleasure of watching your favourite
movie with help from a well configured 5.1 speaker setup
then there's a chance you've never experienced it the way
it was created to be experienced.
may have the greatest screen that money can buy, but weak,
empty audio will ultimately destroy the immersive experience
that full, rich realistic sound can deliver. The home theater
experience relies on the powerful combination of sound and
vision, and one without the other is certain to taint what
could be a wonderful experience.
I want to take a look at another 5.1 speaker system from
Mercury. The HT5800R speaker system is a relatively powerful
5.1 setup complete with dual-driver satellites, a wooden
cabinet subwoofer, remote control and a reported 175watt
the previous speakers we looked at from Mercury, this more
fully-featured kit comes with a slightly higher, though
still extremely reasonable price tag of around £52.00
including VAT, but can you really live the home theater
experience on the cheap?

Black or Silver
we go again. "5800W PMPO Sub-Woofer System "!
Get real! I'm pleading with Mercury to drop that "PMPO"
marketing garbage and just stick with the real ratings.
It does them, and their reputation as a reputable peripheral
manufacturer no favours at all.
no intentions of trying it but I'd lay odds that if I piped
5800 watts through this, or indeed any domestic amp, it'd
light up like a Christmas tree.
