OK I am planning on using this receiver for my fathers home theater set up,
I have installed seven speakers (in wall before picking the receiver). I am seeing in the manual talk of "FRONT HIGH" & "FRONT WIDE" speaker placement. This would be 11 channels, I see in the manual there are speaker connections for all eleven speakers, but the receivers specs are 140 x 7. So I am confused how a 7 channel amp is going to power 11 speakers.
Is my father really going to be missing out without the front "HIGH" and "WIDE" speakers? This will be his first H/T, I just want to set it up the best that I can for him.
