Heck I had my last 5.1 system for 15 yrs, couple of the channels finally began going out on my old Kenwood so I now have the Denon 1913 (which I really enjoy) and 7.1 was the only way I was going when upgrading and told my wife that I'd keep it all tight and clean while installing everything. She loves it and even the dog thinks the house is haunted with all the different noises flying around the room lol.
Back on the subject of the VT50 after we finished watching a movie tonight I hadn't even thought about trying out the 3D yet. We didn't have a 3D movie on hand so we watched a little of the 2d to 3d conversion on a movie and I told them ahead of time not to expect to much excitement with that route. As I suspected it was like... meh, not much going on but it did add a little more depth to it. My daughter wants Nemo in 3D and from what I've read its a good one for the family to enjoy so I'll likely pick that up soon to get a better take on the 3D side of this tv.
