A very perliminary idea... but:
I was thinking about getting an amp to power my center cs2 and for the money I find that I'm looking at getting a 2 ch amp, something like a parasound 1000a. Well, if I get another 2 ch amp, i might as well use the 2nd channel to power a rear speaker and was thiking about putting a cs1 or cs2 as a single rear ch. (I remember seeing in my marantz manual that it will support this kind of a 6.1 setup)
In my own head, I just cant see the difference between 7.1 and 6.1 being all that amazing, but what do i know...
anyone try this? were you happy with results?
