Introduction

It seems no matter who one talks to these days the topic of home theater inevitably comes up at some point. Everyone either has a home theater system, or everyone wants one. With the prices falling on flat panel displays and projectors, just about everyone can afford to put together a very nice home theater system. However, not everyone is concerned with having the absolute best when it comes to the audio portion of the system. Nobody wants junk, but most don't want to spend more on the speakers than on the rest of the system. JBL has put together a nice little system that will fill the needs for those wanting to obtain some decent surround sound to go along with the rest of their home theater and not break the bank in the process.
