Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ’em) products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve already written about the best subwoofers, sound bars, and portable Bluetooth speakers, here we’re singling out the most reliable home-theater speakers on Amazon (note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity).

Best 5.1 home-theater speaker system, overall

“I purchased two sets of these, and I am using one with my TV and another in my home theater. They sound amazing. My home theater rocks. I have to keep the volume at 30, otherwise it will bring down my house. My home theater was set up by a theater professional, who was amazed by the quality of the sound from these speakers.”
