Whether or not it is the case, I think of the term "rear surround(s)" as being exclusive to 6.1 and 7.1 configurations, and they are mounted on the back wall or corners. The term "surrounds" are found in all 3 configurations and are meant to mounted on the side wall (or, to the sides of the listening area), but CAN be effectively placed on the back wall, or behind the listening area. If someone is talking about a 5.1 configuration and uses the term "rear surround(s)," it is only confusing the issue.

Just my opinion.

Yo momma so fat, when she sits down listen to her home theater system, her rear surrounds the couch cushion.

SEE! I told you it was confusing.

Go listen to the M50s and report back here pronto, you young whippersnapper! . (Jeez! I sound like Gabby Hayes. Now THERE'S a terrifying thought.)

The scary part is that you LOOK like Gabby Hayes too!!! . It can't take long to brush both of those teeth every morning.

Ahh, I feel better now. Here's another thought. If $$$ are an issue, there's really no reason to get right to 7.1. It's not like there is a tremendous amount of source material out there. Do your M60/VP150 (100 is also excellent) /QS8s now and grab the Yammy 2400. Call HSU and SVS and talk to them (great folks at both places) to zero in on a sub. You can always pick up the other 2 speakers for 7.1 later. Spreads the bucks around a little better for you.

NAH! Here's my latest photo and I don't see the resemblance at all.
