    [​IMG] I gather that most playback is 5.1 [is that so? ] What is the process if it is played on a 7.1 system?[​IMG]

    Despite a lot of loose talk, there really is no such thing as "7.1". For further discussion, look at this thread.
    Receivers or pre/pros that have outputs for 7 separate speakers each have their own way of processing signals for playback through that array. For example, Lexicon processors use a proprietary scheme called "Logic7" to open up the rear channels of a 5.1 source.
