    Hi Just wondering with a few posts about upgrades, When's it justifiable to Upgrade ?

    I have the Sr4200 and have noticed they have bought out the SR4400.

    I mean it seems that the only Differance is that this is a 6.1 System

    Will this be noticiable over listening in 5.1 and is the 6.1 Just Fake sound or are Film makers makeing films in 6.1 now Or am I barking up the wrong Tree entirely ??

    To be honest the only person you need to convince is yourself, I would not however upgrade just to get the latest model and 6.1, SR4200 to SR4400 would IMO not be worth the money even the OSE, 6.1 is better but IMO it is nominal and you need to be able to position your speakers well, look at something like the SR7400, you will get 7.1 more power amplification and PLIIx I think unbeatable are advertising them for under £500, although they probably do not have stock yet.

    It depends on what your requirements are, movies music etc you may be better off spending the money on speakers but as I said earlier you are the person that needs to make the decision get out an have a listen to some systems see what you think. :)
