7.1 not necessary. ARC, speaker calibration, ipod integration, audio syncing, Pandora. This is for a family room, not a dedicated home theater room. I do have surround sound, but it is 5.1, along with 70" Sharp LED, PS3, cable box. Any suggestions would be great. Originally looked at Yamaha RX-V467, 667, and 473, but all seem to be lacking something. Guess Pandora is not a must have since I can run it off of my ipod.
