I am a newbie to HT and am looking at the Yamaha 5760. I like it's inputs better then the 5650 and 5730 etc. but I plan to use only 5.1 as I don't have room for more than 6 spkrs. Should I be limiting my shopping to 5.1 receivers?? OR will the 5760 be happy pushing only 5.1. or rather will I be happy?

Absolutely, you can purchase a 6.1 or 7.1 receiver and only run 5.1. Just make sure you turn the extra channels off in the speaker type selection in the receiver.
