I apologize for some of the lame questions I might be asking...but it's only because I like doing research on a product before I buy it.

I might be way off base with this..BUT...

Does the Cirrus Extra Surround mode in the 950 turn ALL 5.1 programming into 7.1 material??
If I read correctly, it simply does it's own matrixing of the surrounds and adds the extra 2 channels. If this is true, I'll indeed be watching ALL my movies again, even the neglected ones

I keep reading different views on this but I have yet to see anyone actually type that out, word for word.

Thanks for reading!..and hopefully replying! Much appreciated!

*Note* Someone PLEASE tell me how you like the CES mode...and how it sounds with 7.1 running. I am very interested in this and who better to ask then all you Outlaws!?

I'll post in another forum in hopes that more people will see it.

Yes, CES produces 7.1 (actually 6.1, with the same back surround signal to both surround back channels) from any 5.1 source (DPL II, Dolby Digital, DTS). I really like it, use it pretty regularly.

I advance fast and then hangup on other areas. Just recently got a 6th (7th still sitting around somewhere) speaker hung to use this 950 capiblity.

Love it...be aware its dependent to source as to how much heavy info you hear out of it just as some DVD's lay a lot into the surrounds and others do not. On my Sat. feed just as with DPLII sometimes the info seems recorded in such a way as to give DPLII (or CS) a whole lot to work with...then its stunning the equivelent of DD 5.1 from a stereo only feed. Other times just not as much going on...I find this on the CS side also. Its a really nice mode to have.
