FTC Thinks Surround Sound Comparable to Stereo.

The FTC decided, after public comment, to retain the Amplifier Rule, which is for consumers to compare power outputs of amps used in home entertainment products. http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2008/02/amp.shtm

It decided there was no present reason to amend the rule due to the multi-channel home theater and surround sound systems, which now take up a lot of the market.

When you bought that last amp for your home sound system, did you use the Amplifier Rule or the ‘that one sounds better than that one’ standard?
