Are you listening in "7 ch stereo" or one of the surround modes?
I only have 5 speakers, my Yamaha has a CinemaDSP option in MUSIC called 5ch stereo. The other choices are things like listening in different theaters, but I don't like those modes they seem to just distort the sound. Oh any my receiver is only 5.1, more than enough for the size of my apartment.

I have no idea, I didn't even notice that.
P.S. Can anyone message me an invite for what.cd or waffles please? I'd really appreciate it.
I pretty much always use my Yamaha's '7ch Stereo' mode to listen to 2 channel music with in a 5.1 configuration. The beauty of that mode is that you can adjust the percentage of signal to the other speakers in 1% increments from 0 to 100%. You can tailor just how much of the effect you want.
Straight 2 channel playback sounds flat and boring in comparison now. Soundstage depth and width and localisation is very much more real and lifelike with the additional channels.
