    Great video! Can you please do a video of your wire setups for your surround sound with your Nakamichi sound bar. Would be great to see exactly which cables go where. Thanks and subscribed!

    If a person wants full surround sound, of course receiver is needed.

    You need to have a receiver if you want quality sound… Soundbars etc do not cut it!! Too many people cheaping out on lazy inferior systems.

    I for one am tired of playing with complicated receivers. Anyone that wants to use the system has to be trained and frankly it’s very frustrating in the end. Just one mans’ opinion
