Dear AVSers....


I just purchased a Sony BDV-E570 5.1 Home Theater System. I was looking to buy the 2 extra speakers to make it into a 7.1 system... Now i have no clue about audio stuff and looked on Sony site for the extra speakers but I have no clue where to even start....

Does anyone know how to purchase the 2 extra speakers.... Can they just be any brand bookshelf speakers?

Which ones do you recommend?

I really dont know anything so please try to describe as best as possible!

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that it would be a real neat magic trick to turn a 5.1 system into 7.1 if it only has speaker outs for 5.1. As far as I can tell, that system can't do 7.1, unless I'm missing something.

Don't believe everything on the Interwebz! A duck's quack DOES echo!
