Re: Need to buy a 5.1 Receiver
That will be no problem at all. Either just do not connect the front surround speakers or buy two more speakers for front surrounds. The manual that comes with the receiver will explain different speaker arrangements. I have a 3800 which I bought a year before the 3900's came out. Absolutely incredible sound. You cannot beat a Yamaha for sound realism. I know other receivers do other things but none beat Yamaha for sound.
