Can I use it in a 5.1 system. I like the features that aren't available in 5.1 receivers.

I have 2 of these, and both are running a 5.1 system. It works all the way from a 2 speaker stereo system to a 7.2 system. The Audyssey Room Calibration microphone test the system, identifies the speakers you have, and calibrates them to sound and work perfectly. Or at least that is what I have found.

I had bought a used subwoofer that went out on me last week. I calibrated the system again and it changed to accomidate the missing sub. I tend to be one of those guys that spend way to much time analyzing and searching out information before I make a purchase. I did that with the receivers too. I saw that there were a lot of bad reviews on the TX-NR616, but I really liked the features. I decided to go ahead with the purchase anyway. No regrets at all! see less I have 2 of these, and both are running a 5.1 system. It works all the way from a 2 speaker stereo system to a 7.2 system.

Yes, you can use it in any configuration from 2.0 up to 7.2. When you do the automatic Audisey speaker calibration it will detect whatever speakers you have connected and optimize the speaker for the acoustics of the room. I'm using it in a 5.1 configuration but like the fact that I can upgrade to 7.2 if I want to later on.

Absolutely! This receiver lets you use a setup "up to" 7.2 channels. The speaker inputs are labeled for 5.1 as well. That's what I'm doing right now, secure in the knowledge that I can always add another two satellites and a second subwoofer later.

Yes, I used my speakers, DVD, BluRay player, Direct TV box from my old 5.1 system and everything works well with this new receiver. Just make sure that you download the pdf manual and either print it or have it nearby on your computer, laptop or Kindle and go through the setup.

If you are going to use your WiFi home connection disconnect the cableTV box, install the WIFI USB dongle and hook the tuner directly to the TV.

Yes, I am currently using it in a 5.1. Just be sure when you get it to do the firmware update and the Audysey set up with the little black microphone that plugs in the front. The mic will automatically set it to 5.1 doing the set up.
