    Will my AX5i play true 6.1 or 7.1?
    If so does it play 6.1 on THX,Pro Logic11?
    The only 6.1 I see is NEO:6 Cinema is that what Im ment to use and is it something that is decoded true?

    I dont think this amp is right for true 7.1 am I correct?

    If you have aset up for 7.1 with 2 rear speakers do they both play in mon :rolleyes: o if its a 6.1 film?

    If I'm not mistaken it will play true 6.1 and 7.1 in Dobly Digital EX, but this would be dependant on the source being encoded with this (not many discs are I think).
    You can also drive a 6.1 set-up from a stereo source using pro-logic II. The later AX5ai has pro-logic IIx which will drive a 7.1 set-up from a stereo source.
