Hello, I am new heme theater
Just boughtn Onkyo ht-sr800 and want to set it up as a 5.1 system. Can I use the audessey microphone to do this, or must I have all 7 speakers hooked up? Any advice on how to hook this system up as 5.1 would really be appreciated

Actually, WFBowen is mistaken. In my experience, I tried to configure the Audessey using only a 5.1 configuration and it did not work. The system forces you to hook up all 7.
