I had the same problem with the HT-S9100.Our room is 18x12 feet.
You can use 5.1 setup with the HT-S9100 without problems.
You can tell the receiver which speakers are connected (Setup, 2. Speaker Setup, 2-1. Sp Config).
With Audyssey 2EQ® setup it goes automatically (Oligeo, I never had problems with Audyssey and a 5.1 setup).
Be ware, Audyssey 2EQ® does not calibrate the subwoofer ! See my post at page 24.
So don't worry, be happy (you already have decided which system you are going to buy).
