Indeed and this maybe what I do. Currently I have the Onkyo's sitting on either side of a fireplace, but the mantlepiece is not deep enough for something like the Atlantic or Kef speakers.

If you were limited to 9 channels, would you choose 7.1.2 (rear surrounds) or 5.1.4? My thinking is 7.1.2 is more likely to be better at steering sounds more precisely as it has more "point" speakers...
