HI guys so here's my issue, I have a budget 6.1 setup but am just moving into a new house.
This is the layout of my sittingroom, i have marked the only really viable speaker positions on the image in red.
While the fronts are fine the surrounds are clearly well out of place being behind ad far away from the sofa.
my first thought is to drop the rear center and go with a 5.1 setup but even then are the surround speakers too out of position?
I have a toddler running around so i really don't want to be dealing with speaker stands and loose cables, i want everything buried.
so the question is, will this setup produce a reasonable enough soundstage to warrant the effort, or should i just go with a 3.1 system?
