    Should I even bother looking at 5.1 receivers or should I just shell out for a 6.1 receiver now? Basically, will the 5.1's be obsolete anytime soon?

    I would recommend a good 6.1 or 7.1 receiver over a 5.1 receiver. DVDs that have a DD EX or DTS ES Matrix or DTS ES ES 6.1 soundtrack have better imaging with the rear center 6th channel in my setup. I actually have a 7.1 setup with my Sony DA4ES receiver and it sounds much better then my previous 5.1 setup in my room.

    Just put together a 6.1 system and am very pleased with it - it makes a very enjoyable and noticable difference on many films.

    Is your room big, Can you fit side and/or back surrounds?, can you blend them with your remaining speakers?
