decrease in sonic quality..
The Center Back Channel audio content available in a 6.1 mix is outputted to the L & R surrounds. If the master mix is 7.1, then the L & R Back Surround channel saudio content is outputted to L & R Surrounds. Nothing is lost just merged into existing channels, note that the step to 7.1 is significant for expanding the soundstage if setup properly. The step to 6.1 was a bust
as it usually collapsed
the soundstage by reducing channel separation..
Just my $0.015...
