    Hey,

    Just curious if anyone has hooked up surround sound or external speakers to their Wii. I just read something about a system that is avail in the UK and soon coming to the US that offers a 3D system and subwoofer. Just wondering if anyone has seen or heard of this or anything like it?

    Thanks!

    Wii games have Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound. This encodes 5.1 surround channels into 2 channels left/right using a "matrix". A decoder can tease them apart and separate them into a decent surround-sound experience. This is different than Dolby Digital or DTS which have separate, discreet audio channels for each.

    I have a surround-sound receiver hooked to my Wii. When I switch to my Wii input, I've already programmed my receiver to switch to "Dolby Pro Logic II - Game" mode, and it sounds great. I haven't come across any crazy surround-sound ear-candy in any games, though (stuff shooting by or around you). It's just a general improvement in the sound environment.
