some months back, i thought that my HT was complete and done, but did not much like using 2 of the Marantz amplifier channels for the back surrounds, mostly because of the heat.
so i bought another separate amp as a replacement for the Marantz amps.
now, the new amplifier is used for the Front speakers and
the other amps are used for the side and back surrounds.
the Marantz is used only as a decoder/preamp.
as i can't change the photo here for an up to date one, here's a link where you can see the setup:http://www.blu-ray.com/community/gallery.php?member=Gelli
