Hello all, I'm looking to buy an avr and speakers. First of all I have to decide between 5.1 and 7.1/7.2. Current setup: TV: Sony XD85 55" Player: Panasonic DMP-UB700 The apartment I live in is quite small so there isn't lot of room to cover and there are neighbours basically all around me. Also don't have a lot of money so I have to buy the devices over some time. First question - amplifier setup: 7.2 Harman Kardon AVR 171S 498€ Sony STR-DN1080 499€ 5.1 Sony STR-DH550 279€ Harman Kardon AVR 151S 299€ Yamaha HTR-2071 299€ Yamaha HTR-3071 270€ Next 7.2 system available would be too expensive and the 500€ is as much as I'm willing to spend. There are more 5.1 systems available over 300€ but do they really offer noticeable difference to the ones I listed? So, first of all which setup should I go for? If get a 7.2 avr and I end up staying for a while at a 5 or even a 2 speaker setup is there any significant downside to that? Is there any of the AVRs I listed that you wouldn't buy at all? I'll ask about the speakers once I know more. Hope you get a hang of what I mean.
