    Hello Everybody, lets get the ball rolling here, not sure if its been mentioned before but the general concensus is that Most shops and Film companys are Not rolling out films that are 6.1 and 7.1 Dolby surround sound at the moment.

    I've just seen one and that was a one off "Top Gun" new release 6.1.

    Just about all film's that people generally browse in the shops are All Dolby 5.1/5.1DTS So my Q. is this:

    What is the real point of buying 6.1/7.1 sound systems at this moment in time!!

    Your thoughts please...as I think i will just invest i n the latter !

    good question im glad you brought it up. i upgraded my crt with inbuilt dolby pro logic, and now have a tv with nicam stereo. only problem is i didnt know what forum to post this topic in.... amp/all in one/reciever.... its all very confusing

    basically i got the tv and i want to know if i should be getting 5.1 or 7.1 and how to go about it!

    very hard to find even 5.1 devices on the high street and if you do you dont know if their any good!

    I agree but there are just not enough films to buy that are 6.1 or 7.1.
    how many DVD films do u have that are genuine 6.1 or 7.1 films

    Cheers
