The Cinema 510 is bare-bones surround sound, but without the bargain-basement audio quality. There’s a surprising amount of punch in the five 5.2-inch-high satellite speakers, which are small enough to be unobtrusive. And the more visible 60W subwoofer does its job while looking classier than it should at this price. The system’s only drawback is the lack of a specific center channel (the satellites are all identical in design), which is only a concern for viewers who have a hard time picking dialogue out of a movie’s audio mix.
