Many people are now seeing the benifits of 6/7 channel. A very popular top 5 question lately. "Like dude what can I use as a rear center"? Many new recievers are coming 6 channel equiped. As it all seemed to be the taboo thing to do a couple years ago. When i built my dedicated HT awhile back I specificaly chose 6.1 sound. As movies and music become more aggressive with surround speakers I can not imagine not have that "punch" of sound in the rear of my HT. That glass- shattering -thundering THX trailer really stands out the best. There is no way you could get the "full" feel of that trailer with out 6 channel sound. My Onkyo has a 6ch. stereo DSP and for music/sporting events I really enjoy it. I would like hear more people speak up about the change in sound from 5 channel to 6/7 channel HomeTheaters.
