I'm sure this argument has been around since the begining of time but..... In the interest of someday being able to actually take advantage of Multi-channel sound (ie DVD-A & SACD), I am planning on my next speaker purchase consisting of full-range conventional speakers for my surrounds. My question is what will I be giving up (considering that past widsom has placed dipoles as the optimum surround for home theater) by using a full-range direct speaker configuration? What do you guys think? Is the future of multi-channel full-range sound going to make dipole surrounds obsolete? and are manufacturers already phasing them out of their upcoming product lines?
