    Hello,
    Do the latest 5.1 receivers allow you to just have the front L/R and a Center along with a Sub and not use the rear surround speakers?

    The system would be in a small bedroom and there really isn't room for rear surround speakers. There's no way for them to be behind me, at best they would be parallel to my viewing/listening position.

    Thanks,
    BrianGC

    Yes is the answer to the first question. Just so you know, he rear surrounds don't have to be behind you. There is nothing wrong with mounting them on the side walls. You might be surprised how well you like them.

    Never say never, or nearly impossible in this case. You'd be amazed how easy it is once you decide to do it.
