Nope. The sofa is still against the wall - 13 feet from the TV. I tried squatting on the floor at different points between the TV and the sofa, but, didn't notice any difference in sound quality.
Setting the Area to "Large" helped widen the soundstage considerably.
The velcro is surprisingly strong. If I shake the soundbar physically, it does move a bit back ad forth, but, that is just the velcro's hook-loop range. It takes a lot of effort to rip the soundbar off the TV - I had to do this because, the first time, I placed the soundbar, it was a little off center.
I tried playing a few movies with loud action passages really loud to see if the soundbar would vibrate or move, but, it didn't; it's very firm and yet, isolated from its base, the TV.
Tried a couple of movies with DTS audio last night. The channel separation and quality of dialogs/speech is simply amazing.
The subwoofer is loud enough get me in trouble with the neighbors.
Adding the YAS-71 to my Harmony remote and configuring various activities to use it was a breeze. Works great.
While playing music (mp3s from an XMod wireless device), I closed my eyes and could've sworn that the music was playing on nice, big floor standing speakers with surround speakers.
An excellent purchase - in my opinion. Thanks.
