    Well i got my 550 just wondering if it is worth getting the rear pseaker to make it 6.1?? It would have to be placed right on the wall behind me so basically it would be sat on top of me. Is that a problem??

    To be honest you really need at least a metre or so of depth behind you to get the proper effect with 6.1. The sound of the Surround Back speaker is supposed to come from behind you, not directly above your head (unless it's a rear to front overhead flyby of a plane or something).

    To get to 6.1 you need an active subwoofer and an extra speaker.Denon used to do a kit but In don't seem to be able to find it anymore.Any ideas anyone?.
