So what is the deal? Yamaha (and I am sure others too) has a receiver that will output to 11.2 with an "ideal" setup consisting of 11 discrete speakers and then 2 subs.

You may recall 5.1 is:

Front Left
Front Right
Surround Left
Surround Right

7.1 adds:
Left Rear
Right Rear

11.2 adds:
Front Left "Presence"
Front Right "Presence"
Rear Left "Presence"
Rear Right "Presence"
Second LFE (one is for the "right" and the other for the "left")

I can't imagine why anyone would need 11.2 since so little seems to be recorded as anything more than 5.1 right now.

So what gives?
