Does anyone have the delta set up? How well is the surround sound on them?
I got a set when they went on sale a couple weeks ago at amazon. At least the set I have, the surround sucks. There is no surround sound at all. No matter the source or material, it is only a barely enhanced stereo sound.
Previously I was using the wired astro mixamp and pc350's or hd 555's. The mixamp (my third) started having issues yet again (noted a few pages ago) and I wanted to give the delta's a try. The total wireless aspect was a draw for sure.
Well, as stated, they do not provide any surround at all. Connected to the ps3 with the sound settings as optical only and dolby the only option checked (tried all however) with the transmitter showing dolby output (not PLIIx) there is only an enhanced stereo image coming out. This is the case for games as well as bd movies.
For anyone who has seen it, a great test is the beginning of transformers dark of the moon. At the very beginning of the movie (start of chapter one), when the paramount logo is shown the audio does a sweep around the horn hitting each channel one at a time. It sounds great through speakers. Through the delta's, just stereo.
So does anyone else have these and had this issue?
