I am enclosing a plan view of my system. I am using Martin Logan speakers (they are all dipole). The fronts are full-range floor standing SL3s, the center is a Logos (ceiling mounted), and the rears are Stylos (wall mounted).
I am wondering if it is worth me upgrading from 5.1 to 7.1. My biggest limitation is room size. I cannot come far off the back wall (2ft for the prime position), and I don't have a wall to the side (its the entrance to the room). I have to bring the side speakers ahead 4ft.
I am considering a pair of Script i speakers, which can wall mount and hinge to face in any direction.
I am purchasing an Oppo player, and would like to listen to 7.1 material, but I am wondering if I will be taking a backward step.
