As my main interest is in home cinema, but still appreciating Hi-Fi, I am very interested to hear the comments of the enthusiasts and experts on stereo Hi-Fi, on this forum as to whether you consider the 5.1 mixes of tracks found on DVD-A's and SACD's as true Hi-Fi? PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THIS THE WRONG WAY!!! You spend many thousands of pounds on a 2 channel system, accurately setting up imaging, and achieving sublime qualities from 2 speakers then BANG, along comes a system that fills the hole in the middle and enhances space with a rear fill. Given the appropriate funds, would you purchase 3 more amplifiers, speakers and interconnects etc to match your existing equipment and use the 5.1 channels in the same quality as the stereo you currently have or do you still consider the "purist" 2 channel to be superior? If so, why?
