    I hope someone can help me here with some opinion - probably too basic for most :blush: :

    I am putting together my budget and shortlist for new Plasma based AV system.

    Q1. Is the difference in experience with a 7.1 system compared to a 5.1 system worth the additional outlay in speakers and building work?

    Q2. With which source material (eg DD, DTS etc) does 7.1 come into its own

    Q3 Is there enough of this material to make the system worthwhile.

    Sorry for the very basic questions, but just trying to add up some figures.

    many thanks
