    I just bought the Sony DA5ES and I was wondering if I hooked up a 200 watt x 2 amp for the mains, could I have the non used amp power the other surround back speaker so I can have 7.1 instead of 6.1?

    Thanks…James

    James-

    Congrats on your New receiver. From what the Manual says, the FRONT CENTER channel is assignable to the rear but the front center becomes Matrixed from the 2 Mains. I think you would need at least 3 Channels to connect all 3 front channels and assig the Front center as the second rear surround.

    Thats how I understand the manual. I could be wrong however.
