Video: Surround sound for a music lover

Steve Kindig has been an electronics enthusiast for over 30 years. He has written extensively about home and car A/V gear for Crutchfield since 1985. Steve is also a volunteer DJ at community radio station WTJU, where he is a regular host of the American folk show "Atlantic Weekly," as well as the world music program "Radio Tropicale."

More from Steve Kindig

Steve, Crutchfield editor, is an ardent stereo audio fan, but he wanted to upgrade his living room with a surround sound system. So we helped him build a system that would provide engaging home theater effects and could stand up to his two-channel music listening needs, too. We chose a Marantz SR6006 home theater receiver, Marantz UD7006 Blu-ray player, and Furman Elite-15 PFi power conditioner/protector. We paired these components with Klipsch Reference Series speakers — RF-62II front tower speakers, RC-52II center channel, RS-52II surround speakers, and SW-112 subwoofer.
