Have you completed your Xbox entertainment center with a Surround Sound System? I have and it just wouldn't be the same without it.

The 5.1 surround encoded Xbox games are too good to not play in surround. Its one of its best capabilities. I have mine hooked into my full home theater. I couldnt have it any other way. Very impressive.

Well lets just put it this way when playing Halo. When you're in one of those many corridors and you have your surround sound set up, you can hear those daym little covenant guys come up from behind you! ohmy.gif laugh.gif

I wouldn't play Halo or any other game any other way...

hey all, new to the scene

got the xbox w/ dvd, and additional s controller 1/3/04 11am
got the Altec Lansing Xa3021 3pm

then bought Halo and Mortal Kombat... i love it, but i was dissapointed in the lack of 5.1 sound, thouhgt i was due to xbox, because i asked the salesman if i had all the goodies to make this thing rock, he said yea

now im reading and all i nead is a A/V thing and i can have 5.1,
so im returning my Altec Lansing Xa3021 for xa3051 today afterwork!!!

i love surround sound.. but i didnt want to hook my xbox into my living room w/ my onkya setup, because i dont want the kids on it, they got a ps2 i let them use on that setup, plus i wanted a good setup in my bedroom....(wifes gonna be pissed at all the cables around the room from the rear speakers beerchug.gif oh well
