    Hi all,

    I am thinking of upgrading my Yamaha 795a to an amp with 7.1 but at the moment I will only be able to use it in 6.1 due to the amount of room I've got.

    So my question is can a 7.1 amp run a single rear centre instead of two?

    Thanks,

    ps. the amp I'm thinking of is the new Sony 795

    They all should have this option. It's certainly the case with Denon's as you just select how many speakers and which ones you have in your setup. For one Surround Back speaker you would connect to the Surround Back Left speaker terminal. :)

    Arcangel,

    Thanks for the info. :thumbsup: Lets hope that the Sony STRDB795 can be switched in to 6.1 mode.

    Also my Yamaha RXV650 7.1 can work in 6.1 with putting only one surround back speaker on the left surround back connector.

    What arr the rules to decide whether you need a 6.1 or 7.1 setup?

    My amp has 7.1 and I have about a 1m behind my sofa, so how many extra speakers should i use?
