Just ordered two RTi10s, Two RTi4s and a CSi3 in Cherry (I wanted a CSi5 but I just cant find a way to do it with my setup - space is an issue and that 4 inches extra is too much for me). I already have a SW to help with the lows, and I bought from three places to save the most money - so I didnt get a free Sub. (Did the RTi10s as seperate orders for $17 shipping each). Saved a decent bit with no tax either.
I'm going from a 12 year old JBL Simply Cinema to these, so Im expecting I'll really enjoy things much more - especially music. I've always liked the sound of these, and demoed them two weeks ago to see if they sounded good to me.
Not sure what I am going to do right now - Curious if I should even worry about the extra two channels or just focus on getting these 5 in and bi-amping the fronts since its an option for me.
In all seriousness, how much am I missing by staying 5.1. I can do 7.1 but not sure how much of a difference it will be. Any suggestions on how much Im missing? Obviously I can change down the road if needed.
