Does anyone have a 9.1 HT with side-axis speakers? If I can get a great price on some RTi10s or 12s, then I may pull the trigger and buy them. Move the 8's to the side-axis. My Sunfire has the ability to go 9.1 with an external amp (see below from Sunfire manual). It will eventually go in a 13" x 25" home theater. I will probably either get a 2-channel amp (for just the side-axis) or a 5-channel and also bi-amp the front soundstage. Thoughts?
I am looking for those who have actually done this or have heard it. "Big upgrade", "little or no difference", etc. Thanks.
The TGR-3's Aux speaker outputs can be configured as two side-axis channels, or you can use an external power amplifier connected to the linelevel side-axis outputs. The side-axis signals are matrixed from the left and right front channels, so they are available in stereo as well as surround modes.
