    I am thinking of buying a system that could be used for both 5.1 home theater surround sound and high quality stereo system for my music.
    What I am thinking of up to now:

    Wilson Sophias as Front Speakers, Watch center channel, Watch wall mount speakers as rear speakers and the watch dog subwoofer.

    Option 1: Audio research MP1 Multichannel Preamplifier, 150M Multichannel Power Amplifier. What surround sound processor should I use with this option?

    Option 2: Halcro SSP100 Surround Sound Processor & Preamplifier, Halcro MC50 power amplifier.

    I would appreciate any advice on this system.

    I would go with Option 1 adding a Theta Casablanca III surround processor as $$$ appear to be no object.

    I haven't heard the Halcro, but I vaguely remember reading something negative (slightly harsh sound or operation bugs?)
