First I'd like to say Hello to everyone, as I am new here and will be a Bryston owner soon.
I am in the market for a pre/pro and have been looking at the Rotel 1098, the Ati 7500 and 8500.1, but then the Bryston caught my eye.
What I need to know is...
Does the Bryston take 5.1 and 6.1 material and add the 7th channel like other pre/pros do? Does it do this for all movies? Or will I get the 7.1 ONLY with discs that are truly 6.1?
I know if I get the Rotel, that I will have 7.1 for all my movies, regardless if they are true EX/ES discs..I am praying the SP1.7 does this, and I am hoping that someone in here can help me out.
I downloaded the manual and it doesn't get very specific. I saw that in the setup, it indeed has back left and right surrounds, but I don't want to jump the gun on this.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to any and all responses.
