About 4 months ago I decided on replacing the sound system in my bedroom. Previously I have had a make-shift surround sound system made out of four huge fisher speakers, that put out hardly any sound. Also included in my system was four computer speakers set up quadririphonic style. The powerhouse was a 20+ year old 8 track player. I resarched affordable (<110$) dvd/surround sound stereos on the web. I originally wanted a system with a radio, but could not find any withen my budget. Unfortunately, I found the best place to buy stereos of my specification was walmart... I found a ge system that seemed pretty nice. $88. It had th standard 5 speakers and subwoofer. I bought it took it home, not expecting it to be anything special, and set it up. It had not said this on the box, but it had 2 auxilary inputs, so I could attatch my t.v. and p.c. to it. I sat the four speaker at the top of my rooms four corners, the center speaker behind my tv, and subwoofer under my couch. I continued to set up each speaker induvidually ( my room has many nooks that make the speakers be farther away from my center location. After setting it up to my content, I put in one of my classic rock cd's. I was instantly amazed by the sound quality. It was much richer and fuller than what i expected for a $88, 120 watt stereo. After four months it still preforms just as well as the day i bought it, and is showing no signs of wear.
