I have 2 stereo systems (2.1, 2 speakers and a sub) and 2 HT systems, a 5.2 and a 7.2. I actually prefer the 2 channel systems for listening to music.

Clearly your ears are flawed. We will be forced to disregard all furthers comments/opinions. :-)

In my current system I prefer listening to music in 2-channel as well. Of course, my opinion might change after I replace my Cambridge Soundworks surrounds with QS4s.

Preference has a lot to do with experience. I've spent most of my life listening to music from 2 speakers, so I expect music to sound a certain way. I have a few surround SACDs, and some do a better job of being transparent in the use of the surrounds than others. The ones that sound best to me (besides DSoTM, of course!) are the ones that use the surrounds sparingly, and solely for ambiance or helping define the space of the recording location.

I prefer my music in 2.1, although 4.1 via DTS:Neo 6 is growing on me. I did listen in 2.0 for a little while, but getting that ol' sub back in the mix was a really nice thing.

I meant 2.1, as well. My M22s really need the assistance of the sub. And my old Onkyo doesn't do any of those fancy-schmancy surround modes.

I mostly listen in 7 channel surround mode, but when I sit in front of my M60s, I usually change the receiver to "Pure direct" and only listen to the mains, no sub. I find that the bass is tighter and the imaging is better that way. I find that when listening in 2.1, the image collapses a bit... I don't know why. But, then again, I rarely get involved in critical listening sessions.
