I have heard that there is no such thing as 7.1 yet? If that is true why are there 7.1 recievers. Or are recievers that say are 7.1 are they just using another speaker to really decode 6.1. They say they have 7.1 channel imputs but I think that is for when 7.1 comes out and then you have to buy a seperate decoder. So my question is...

Is there a reciever out there that decodes 7.1

Our should I just buy one that has the 7.1 inputs and uses 7 speakers

Our should I buy a cheaper one for now and wait unil 7.1 onboard decoding comes out.

I want to get the best use of my money and waste as little as possible.

sorry for the confusion but as you can see I am confused.
