Hi, I'm just about to take the plunge with some new AV kit. I demo'd the Denon 3802 and Kef eggs last week and they sounded great. They were even better when an extra two eggs were connected as extra rear speakers for a demo of Gladiator R! on DTS 6.1 ES. This convinced me that it was worth going for the extra speakers. Since then though, I have been pondering. My living room is tiny (old victorian house) which is why the Kef were such a attraction (small speakers are a must). The sofa is right up against the rear wall, meaning that the extra rear speakers would be right next to my ears if they were placed at the same level as the others. There is no way I can move the sofa forward or it will be inside the TV. Obviously having the speakers right next to me is far from ideal. Does anyone know if the speakers can be positioned up high facing down to achieve the same effect? Or am I better off forgetting about 7.1 and just plumping for a simple 5.1 solution. Is 7.1 overkill in such a small room anyway?
