How does that work? Is there a special 3-channel encoding format? Or does the receiver matrix the right / left channels to create a center channel?
sorry, been away. the avr maps those other channels to a speaker that is there
a decent avr does wonders

most broadcasts are 5.1, some are in stereo.

Wasn't 6.1 just DTS-ES? And the extra 6th channel IIRC was just matrixed from the rear outputs, not an actual discrete channel.

As someone else mentioned, maybe check out the used speaker market. I saved like $5k on my 7 speakers because I bought used.
