What about another pair of QS8's if you're happy with them? Or the smaller QS4s if you want to save some cash.

The good news is that it's impossible to turn on the RESTORER function with multichannel audio. It's only an available option with basic 2ch signals (either analog 2ch input or PCM 2.0 stereo).
