I am convinced after indulging in the Flaming Lips DVD-Audio surround sound that 5.1 DVD audio is one of the coolest ideas ever. Other coolest inventions: The iPod (no, not just portable mp3 players) Aqua Teen Hunger Force Feel free to mention yours.
Brian, you should hear 6.1, it is even better
6.1 isn't really all that much better. Â The current 6.1 systems just combine the the two rear surrounds and pump them out of the sixth speaker.
The Yamaha rxv2300 actually seperates the souns in the dvd mode, even if it is a fake seperation, and you will hear things differently through this system, although i would love to buy the newer 2500, my wife would kill me for spending that much on another system just to have a center rear, but the great thing is the rear sub, unlike some recievers, this has a rear sub hook, and i run 2 subs, one front one back independently and therefore you do get different bass from the rear bpubce as the sund passes through the room...i have an old yamaha 5.1 and it is not near as good on the quality, i use it in my bedroom....but combine the rxv2300 with a superb set of mirage speakers and a 400 watt front sub and 200 watt rear sub and the sound comes out great and crisp
