Wait. So you are only using DTS and Dolby digital right now? The jump will be shocking to immersive. It is big to HD formats.

This is exciting. Cool!

I think so... the TrueHD firmware update seems to have happened back in 2008 so I'm already running with it, but since I am running audio over coax to the receiver I believe the player would have fallen back to Dolby/DTS 5.1.

It would be funny if I ended up having to update just the receiver and not my Walmart/Sony BD player.

Looks like I may want to skip more vertical oriented speakers and go horizontal. Need to figure out a mount and what to do for power.

Thanks and sorry for the late reply.

So which speakers to add to my 5.1 system to go to 5.1.2? M22's or do I need a specific speaker designed for downward firing?

That's exactly how I feel like. Too many options…

I almost miss using a virtual center in front of my 50" plasma. Simple and effective.
