Here’s another deep divide I find with dealers. Some like the sound of six channels (one rear) in home theater, but others don’t. One called it unnatural for sound to come from behind your head. Unfortunately, none of the four dealers I went to had 6-channel systems set up for demo, so I am still stuck with virgin ears. Still, this is important, because where I come down on this will determine whether I put my cash into a 5.1 receiver or a 6.1 receiver. I’d be curious to see if there is a consensus here. Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to hear a comparison between the two systems soon.
