Default Re: Question about Using a Y cable on two surround backs

Since in most all cases, 7.1 is really 6.1 where the rear surround channel is split into 2 channels I seriously doubt there would be an audible difference. That is unless the source is in fact a true 7.1 soundtrack which would then require a receiver capable of decoding said 7.1 channels.

What this means to you is, no I don't see where using a Y adapter to feed the rear surrounds would do anything to improve your sound. One speaker or two, it's still the same material...
Anthem, Conrad Johnson, Dish Network/JVC, Dynaudio, Infinity, Integra, JL Audio, Klipsch, Magnepan, Marantz, Martin Logan, Onkyo, Oppo, Outlaw Audio, Panasonic, Paradigm, REL, Sumiko, SVSound, and Toshiba are the brands equipment I currently use. I have owned/used and tested equipment made by just about any manufacturer you can name.
