I have a feeling this has probably been asked a million times. I figure because I have seen sales mean at stores tell one or the other with certainty for years. Well I have always had for HT sound set up 4 towers and a center. Starting a small HT for the living room. I think I narrowed it down to Pioneer VSX 1014 or Elite 52TX. But now speaker set up. 4 towers and center or 2 tower for front, 2 bookshelf for rear then center OR 2 Towers for front and 2 dipoles for rear then center. I keep hearing dipoles are good for surround but won't it affect directionality? Won't it ruin certain directional effects? I figure 4 towers is best way to go but room size might not allow. I also happen to have the viewing couch smack dab against the back wall. What is THE BEST surround scenario? I have the couch up against the back wall but darn it I will drop a wall if I have to, if you guys say I need a tower and I need to put it in back! What do you guys think?
