Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Just grocery shopping. I'm having fun with the coupon game; with deals, vouchers and coupons, I got a 55 shop down to 43. If I'd been bothered to go shopping at the weekend I could have knocked it down to a little over 36 but one of my vouchers expired on Sunday. Paying 7 extra to avoid the weekend crowds is a fair trade-off!

As a bookend to my little known "Soundbars?" thread, a few days ago I finally plumped for a Yamaha YRS-2100 speaker-stand system. It's sort of like Yamaha's Digital Sound Projector series, but serves a practical use too in that you can stick your TV and assorted gadgets on top of it.

I've found that it works very well with surround sound in enclosed spaces like my flat, and while not quite being as good as the real deal (only very slightly, mind you) it pretty much does everything I want it to and means that I can watch films without having to go and find space for an AV receiver and some rather bulky speakers.
How does that work? Some kind of software post-processing on the sound to mimic a surround effect?
