Re: Onkyo 705 Surround sound question?

I'd like to add that IME Upsampling a 5.1 track to fill 7.1 speakers makes the surround channels much less effective. By matrixing sound meant for 2channels into 4, it turns into a blob of sound. A 5.1 setup properly deployed can be just as immersive as 7.1ch setup with a 7.1 track. Fwiw, I dislike the THX recommendation to keep channels 6 and 7 so close, and 6.1 was always useless.
In short, more is less in this case. Listen to soundtracks natively. No Upsampling.
