All, I am confused about the whole 6.1 matrix, descrete thing. After reading the primers, etc., I'm still confused. I am thinking about buying the HTR-5560 from Yamaha as my receiver. However, it seems like it is only matrix 6.1. Now, I've read here that there is very little audio difference between the two, and that is fine. But my question is "can the matrix-only A/V play a 6.1 ES/EX (like "Lord of the Rings") in 6.1 or not"? I'm not sure if it can and in what "mode" it would chose to play it in. Can anyone explain this to me? Thanks for your help. // Jeff K.
