Forgive me: "you don't listen to stereo through"...

The Perfect Sound is the monthly magazine for people who spent $100k on
their stereo system.  No, that number is not a misprint.

for watching movies in 5.1 is pretty far from optimal for listening to
stereo music.  Their arguments were, as I recall, fairly compelling.
