    Hello
    Not too fancy system, love how it sounds
    Onkyo 700 Bose Acustimass 10 speakers, cerwin vega 12" (for bass enhacmenet) 38" Sony Wega
    I wanted to have a 6th channel (center rear) you can add that to my new onkyo 700
    I have already read about it
    Within next week I will have the opportunity to buy that extra channel
    Is it really worth it?

    I am having the same situation right now. My problem is that my chair and couches are already at the back wall. So that center speaker would be right over your head. After talking to a number of folks I have decided to stay with the 5.1

    If you have room behind your rear seating area then it probably would be worth it.

    Just recently started a budget 5.1 set... and I've been having the same thoughts. Wondering if there's even enough material on 6.1 yet to warrant the move, in addition to having my sofa right up against the rear wall as well. Also, I'd have to trade in my AVR125 receiver (I have until 8/5 to do so).

    I was thinking of maybe putting the rear center up high, tilted down, but figure I may have problems with it gelling together with the L/R surround speakers.

    So I'm staying put for now. Until we move to a bigger place... unless I re-arrange our living space (24' x 12') so that fronts are firing along the 24' dimension.

    Darn those bird cages! [​IMG]
