You can easily buy extra speaker wire I'd imagine!

But I know nothing. To be honest, my friends who have 5.1 have never got it right imho. I've heard much better 3.1 for standard rectangle living room set up. But I am sure there is some techies out there who can help.

Sorry, for the hijack of thread - just wanted to stick my opinion in there :-)

There will be a section in the instruction manual on how best to place the speakers. If you have a symmetrical room, then you have a very big advantage. As advised, extra speaker wire can be easily purchased, and would not be a bad upgrade anyway, as the wire that will be included will be cheap and cheerful.

If you want to get ahead of the game, and read up on speaker layout, then as usual, google has all the answers. I found this on the THX website in a few seconds:
