    It's OK in the sense that you won't damage your equipment. But you'll be missing two channels of audio.

    Just set the rear speaker to "NO" or off and it will mix the surround sound into the fronts so you don't lose any sound. Then when you get the rears turn them back on and calibrate everything for the full surround.
