I am a big fan of multi-channel stereo so having 4 full range speaks whose sound I love is a real treat. I would have 6 (1 a side for the center) but my Emerald 97's aren't shielded. I still use a sub and on different input/surround modes set the towers as Small (especially for HT). Just not on 5 channel Stereo. Anybody else using a similar approach?
