OK, I'm taking the plunge and converting from my current 6.1 system in my apt. to a 7.1 system. I plan on purchasing either the Yamaha HTR-5790 or Rxv-1400 receiver in the near future. I also picked up a new pair of RTi6's at CC for $150/pr new on closeout. So the 7.1 system will have for speakers:
CSi40 front center (powered by Outlaw M200)
RTi70 mains (powered by HK PA2000)
FXi3 - side surrounds - mounted 2/3 of the way to the back of the room and at about 5 to 6 feet high
RTi6 - rear surrounds
PSW505 - front left corner sub
PSW303 - rear right corner sub
The side and rear surrounds will be powered by the receiver. I'm using Belden 12g wire for the mains and front center, and still using Monster 16g for the side and rear surrounds. I use interconnects, toslink, etc. from either bluejeanscable or AR Master Series. The current Yamaha HTR-5660 and RTi38's and RTi28's and CSi30 will go to the master bedroom system.
For those of you with 7.1 experience, what am I overlooking or should consider doing?
