Just for kicks, what is the next speaker to be added to make an 8.1 or even 9.1 system?

Is there a point where adding more speakers would be silly and at what point might that be?

Humor me

OH MY!
That is crazy! lol
I'm guessing 10.1 encoding is still a few years down the line as most DVDs aren't even 7.1.

My hopes it'll be spherical surround sound.

Like one sky channel, and one floor channel plus 7.1 means 9.1.

Either that, maybe they could have processing for a perimeter line array that wraps around the theater in a circle with each driver individually controlled.

They'll also have the first of it's kind, moving speakers, where drivers will angle and aim at different areas of the theater when given commands.
