Apparently you don't know about the magical cardboard rocket ship tower that comes with the newest Denons :)

Josey has a X7200W which comes with this, useful when you don't have a tripod.

The answer is no -- you can of course configure a 7.1 setup with 5.1+Front Wide, but you CAN'T use the Front Wides as alternate 2ch stereo speakers.

What you can do is configure it in "2CH" amp...

The 4520 is a pretty powerful receiver and you are only using 5 of its 9 amps. With only 5ch driven it should be able to easily put out 120+ w/ch (and since all channels aren't driven constantly with...

It wouldn't be that hard, and honestly you might not even need another amp if you wire them in series to present a light load to the 5200.

Buy it direct from Audyssey or Denon. Not worth saving $5-10 to risk potentially getting a cheap knock off that will hurt sound quality.

I'm confused -- you can use CB-10's for surrounds but the RC-10's are too big? They are basically the same size.
