Surround Sound System

  SAH 19:59 24 Nov 2009

I recently bought the same Surround Sound System as my friend because I was so impressed with the sound quality, but when I set my system up I was disappointed as it did not sound as good. I can't work out why, as I have positioned my system exactly the same way as hers, she has her TV in the corner, on one side of the fireplace and the sub woofer on the other side of the fireplace, the only thing that is different is that her room is slightly smaller than mine, could this be the reason why there is such a difference in the sound quality?

The positioning of the sub woofer is not to important. Could it be the quality of the sound output from the TV? Also the quality of the cables can make a major difference, as can the type of furnishing within the room

Thanks for that hssutton, I have connected the amp to my sky box with an optical lead, so the sound is actually coming directly from the sky box, didn't know the furniture could affect things though.

Hello julius44 it's an LG sound system this is the link:

As far as room size is concerned all I can say is that her room is rectangular and mine is square and so slightly wider...
