    I'm considering/verging on buying the Quad 11L's 6 or 7 of um in fact, but before I do would like a bit more advice :)

    Would I be better getting the Quad floorstanders for the front and the Quad centre and 4 quad 11L's for surround and back ???

    Equipment will be:
    Tag AV32R BP192 EX
    Rotel RB 1070
    Rotel RMB 1075
    Phillips 963SA
    HTPC used as DVD A and APE jukebox.

    Am going to audition the quads and rotels in Manchester but would like suggestions before I go.

    Thanks
    Bry

    Hi Ian,

    What are your views on 6.1 / 7.1

    From what I can make out from various posts 6.1 would be adequate.

    Thanks

    I have no views, as due to my room layout I cannot sensibly fit in the extra speakers and so have never really given it more than a cursory listen.

    I have run 7.1 (two surround backs) but these were positioned 2m apart on the rear wall, then THX specs changed where the two speakers should be as close to each other as possible, so I changed to 6.1 (single surround back) with the single speaker directly behind me at a distance of 2m, at the time I couldn't see the point of running two speakers which were bang next to each other which were receiving the same signal.

    Just running the single rear has given the rear sound field more depth, the discs with discrete soundtracks are fantastic, and the placement of sound is much better, things come at you from all angles. I even listen to some 5.1 tracks in 6.1 matrix, not as good but works well on some tracks. I have been discussing this with Jase who I understand runs two, he has given me very good advice in the past, so this will be the first project for 2003, I have the other speaker upstairs so when all the decorations are down I am going to get the drill out again and try two surround backs to see if there is any improvement. ;)
