Re: Does any 7.1 AV receiver have selectable rears in 5.1 mode?
No problem. It is difficult to explain and understand. But, it doesn't seem like an unreasonable feature. I just want a standard 7.1 setup, but I want the ability to assign the surround channels to the rear speakers... leaving the surrounds off.
I checked the manuals for Yamaha and Onkyo, and they don't have this feature either. I'll start looking at preamps now.
