Sure .... keep in mind that if you only have 9 speakers total, you can also use Amp Assign = 9.1 and then don't have to identify the pre-out speakers at all. :)

The slim-line models have Fl/FR pre-outs. However, if you have no other option, I'd start saving up for another AVR when this one dies an early death. :(

It's never recommended to remove the feet of the AVR as there are ventilation holes on the bottom of the AVR as well which would be otherwise blocked if the feet are removed.

Not sure you would notice, but optical cannot pass through HD audio on Blu Rays, rather only standard DD/DTS audio.
