Another TPM thread; did you think the extra speakers helped?

    I watched TPM with DD-EX over the weekend with my 6.1 system (with 2 surrounds). [​IMG]
    Just out of curiosity, I watched it again last night with the rear surrounds turned off.
    IMO, the addition of the rears were definitely noticed, especially during the pod race scene.
    It seemed to add more cohesion between the side surrounds, making rear pans seem more natural.
    For all those that wonder about upgrading to 6.1 over 5.1, I say, this case, do it.
    You liked the movie? ......Try it on a nine foot screen.

    I think this movie had the strongest presence of a rear surround channel by far. I found all the channels very aggressive and blended very nicey. I had not thought of trying to watch this movie without the rear channel, but I might be watching it at a friend's house later this week. This is the movie you want to play for someone when you need to warrant having 6 or 7 speakers around the room, not including the 2 or 3 subwoofers you might have.
