Is it just me, or do most people still use 5.1?? I have a Yamaha AX1 which I may want to upgrade, powering 5 M&K S85'S all round. It seems that all the AV manufacturers seem hell bent on offering more and more channels of amplification, when all I want is 5 channels of good quality power. I want my next purhase to last some time, and therefore to have firewire etc, but the new Yammys and Denons which have this also pack in more channels than I want (as does my exising amp). Anyway, just a comment - will probably have to go for a pre power Bryston or similar, but will have to wait for them to offer the 'new' connections (even the new Arcam power amp is seven bloody channels!) Any one else out there paying for amplification they don't need?
