Very good, Mark. If you have enough room behind your listening position, say at least 4', back surround speakers can be worthwhile. Of course, if you decide to add a pair of QS8s there, that would make a 7.1 setup.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

Yeah, I was thinking just one back surround when I wrote 6.1. As for the distance, I have about 4' from the side surrounds, not from my sitting position. It's the way my room is laid out. The surrounds are slightly forward of my sitting position and I have a small wall to my rear, about three feet from my seat, for the back surrounds, which is about four feet from the side surrounds. There is the front door on one side and an opening to a dinning room on the other side.

With that little space I would add QS8s for the rear surround position.
