Wouldn't the appropriate configuration of an AVR be determined by the encoding format of the recorded music?
For example, if the three music channels are appropriately matrixed in a two-channel sound track, I would expect that Dolby ProLogic could be used. Some AVRs include non-Dolby matrixed audio decoders which should work too. If only three channels (L, R, C) are encoded , there'd be no sound emitted by the surround-sound speakers.
