"Order within a year of the initial purchase and you get the "dual" pricing. This can get tricky if the initial purchase was discounted for some reason but I'll do my best"

Thanks. No special discount on first purchase.

Here's what's going on.

Denon X4200. It can do 9 channels but only has 7 amps. So to do 7.x.2 or 5.x.4 need external amp. I've been playing with an extra receiver just to test the "extra" channel reproduction impact.

It doesn't really make a huge difference. Sounds so good to begin with at 5.1.2 that due to diminishing returns on that nasty bell curve, the investment in good amp and extra speakers may not equal bang for said buck.

BUT if I took the money I was going to use to invest in quality external amp and speakers and put that towards a 2nd S1500, thinking that bang for buck equation would speak for itself.....

Given what folks talk about with the 2nd SW.....

Going from 5.1.2 to 5.2.2 can certainly provide some good benefits as long as you have some placement options to experiment with for the 2nd sub. As someone with a 5.2.2 setup, I think you are definitely on the right track
