I am thinking about getting a few home theater components for my living room. Right now I live in an apartment and I can't punch holes in the wall to run wires and I don't want exposed wires. I also don't want wireless rear speakers. And the room isn't really well laid out from an audio standpoint. I also don't want to cheap out and get some HTIB only to replace everything when I have a house or condo that I can actually run wires in. So I was thinking of getting a good center channel and 2 good floor standing speakers as well as a nice sub and good receiver. If I did that I figure I'd have a 3.1 setup that would be a good base to build a 5.1 or 7.1 setup in the future. I mostly watch TV and play xbox360 so surround sound isn't critical. I'd rather have good audio from 3 speakers than junk from 5 or 7. My question are: 1) Do receivers like a Pioneer VSX-917V-K have settings for a setup like this? 2) Will I still get good sound for my applications with a 3.1 setup? Thanks.
