You could still do it with 7.1, but you would have to give up the rear surrounds. Not a big deal, and something you can play around with later if you like.I essentially want to get a pretty good setup with what I have to work with. Mostly movies and games. I like the idea of a 9.1 setup, however, I only have a 7.1 Denon receiver for that room right now.
This is a good thing, IMO.I think I will be relegated to doing floor speakers if I want to add left and right speakers. I am already going to use the black center under the screen.
:TI might get the projector in the room first before I buy a screen to see how big I want to go on the wall before I commit fully to a size.
