As you may know, this receiver is 7.1 channels.

I only use 5.1.

Anyways, in the PS3, should i disable all 7.1 tracks? Or can I just leave it on auto? If I leave it on, it won't damage my receiver or anything? I know it is a silly question, just want to clarify.


Also, instead of the very thin wire that came with my receiver to hook up the speakers, will getting thicker (Maybe 14 AWG for front three speakers and 16 AWG for surround).. would that help cool the receiver down and will it have better audio overall? Will it help in any other way?

Thanks.


EDIT: This receiver gets very hot, and quite dusty. If I put one of those air purifiers from sharper image behind my equipement and a small quiet fan going behind my receiver, will that help? Or will it create more dust to get into my equipement?

If the fan exhausts (draws air away from the receiver), you shouldn't have much problem with dust. You just need to move air. I have that type of arrangement with my receiver.
