My "Tech Toy Thirst" has been quenched (for now) because my subwoofer arrived, just over a week ago, and I am thoroughly enjoying it.
After setting it up, I found it fitted seemlessly into my current music system and gave it that bass boost I did not realise I was missing until now, also I found that vocalist, especially male vocalist, had more depth and presence.
So, it's not just about more bass, it's about adding that elusive something to music that makes it sound more alive.
Anyway, I'm happy for now, ever onwards and upwards.
Yeah sub woofers are worth adding to your setup. I had a 5.1 setup for ages without the .1, just using the bass from the my main speakers. I was in a flat so didn't want to bother the neighbours too much.
I've got my own place now so added a Yamaha Sub and it does make a difference.
I just need a properly 4k compatible amp now as my current one doesn't like the latest copy protection so I have to plug everything in to the TV. Currently setting up a new 4k firestick here and juggling inputs to get the best picture options.
