i have tried a, b and c..i tried everything with sony on the phone..their big thing was a setting called party mode..to put it on and off, but it did nothing for me..i will keep on playing around with it..it has been 5 months now and I still cannot resolve it.
I just changed the surr settings to A.F.D. Mutli..it sounds much better, fuller, thats for sure! I never
even knew about these settings and sony never had me do anything with them either..glad you told me, even if the surround still fades, it sounds much better than a.f.d. std mode..so far so good though, no fading as of yet..but let's see..will post in a few days after checking it out for a while.
