It depends on the type and source of the music. When I'm listening to Qobuz through my computer to the AVR (Denon) using HDMI I listen in stereo (2.2). If it's a multichannel DVD, SACD or BlueRay disc from your disc player you are listening to then Dolby or DTS will select the discrete sound channel parameters. If you are listening to the radio then you should choose stereo. But then again you could choose a 7 channel stereo setting if that is what you want. I have B&W speakers (full range and surround) with Polk in ceiling back and Atmos and have had no issues with timbre between them. Happy listening.
