There is no better way to chill totally than with a quality surround sound system engulfing you with your music. So when buying a surround sound system or upgrading your old stereo be sure to shop around for a '5.1'. 5 is the number of speaker outlets and 1 is the number of 'subwoofers'. Sorry about the jargon but you'll hear it in the shops and read it on the Internet so best to know what it is. A subwoofer is the bit that plays the low frequency sounds. Still no wiser? Well take it from me that if it doesn't have a subwoofer it is simply not a quality surround sound system.
