I also own a NT5 & have considered the ZR7 & 5 to add surround sound.
I had the Samsung HW-K950 which did sound much better than the NT5 but cost 3 times as much, the rears hissed & the bass was overpowering.
for the extra £300 would you say adding 2 ZR5's makes movies sound much better?
I am actually testing the K950 rigt now, and yes it does sound much better, but not 3 times. And the rears hissing sound is annoying me quite a bit, so "great" to know i'm not the only one being annoyed - my wife can't hear it...
As I wrote to ppchen, it is completely up to you. I really like the surround sound, but i watch blu-rays and netflix/hbo every day... Movies are "designed" for surround sound, so a 5.1 set up will give you the sound the film-crew wanted.
Try and find a retailer where you can test it for 14 days or so, and make up your own mind.
