That is good to know. Do you have any experience with Front Height speakers? Do they really add much? I am torn about what to do. I don't want to spend the $80 more and never use the 7.1, but at the same time, I don't want to not spend it and then wish I had.
The other thing I am a little nervous about is that the 1610 is rated at 75x5 and the 1910 at 90x7. I know ratings don't mean a heck of a lot, but since it is within the same manufcaturer I am assuming the use the same rating standards so I wonder if the 1910 is worth it for the additional 15W per channel.
