    My living room is not conducive to a 5 or 6 speaker setup - due to furniture placement, etc.
    Would a 4 speaker setup be sufficient (2 front and two surround/rear)?

    I was thinking/hoping to mount all speakers in the room four corners near the ceiling.

    Thoughts on this as well as decent speakers in the $300 - $400 range?

    Thanks,
    Walter

    Walter,
    In order to get the maximum audio benefit from your system you'll need a center channel. It will handle the majority of the dialogue from DD 5.1 and DTS discs. Don't leave this speaker out, you'll be missing a great deal from your movies!

    If you have the 2 fronts, and 2 rears, then all that is left is a center channel and a subwofer. I am sure there is somewhere on top or below your TV that you can put the center. And the sub can go anywhere. Put it in a corner, behind the couch, even under the couch; it really doesn't matter. (OK, some of you will say that it does matter, which it can make slight differences, but it is better to have one somewhere than none at all)
