I used to be into music/home theater but lost interest over the years as I pursued other hobbies. Some of my old Carver equipment had been acting up for years so I bought a new Marantz receiver recently. The receiver has renewed my interest although I still need to get the networking functions set up. Anyway, I plan on getting some more small items to update everything but I don't know how far I will take it. For example, I need to learn more about current equipment to figure out if there's any real advantage to having the full 7 speakers in my system (five seems like plenty but there must be something to it or else everyone wouldn't be doing it, right?). Anyway, I'll probably spend most my time lurking and trying to figure this new stuff out. Currently have: Sony Bravia 46" (not very new), Marantz SR5006 receiver, Klipsch speakers - La Scalas (main), Academy (center), SW15 (sub) About to buy some small wireless speakers for the rear.
