When i ran the audyssey on my denon it set the speakers crossover to 200hz, when i decide to reconfigure my setup would you suggest that i change the crossover for the min20s manually to 120hz or leave them set at 200hz with the sub set to 200hz aswell?
It's funny you ask! I've spent a lot of time listening to various configurations over several hours, days and weeks. First things first. I thought I recommended you set the crossover initially at 200 but settle on 150 hz?
Well, last night, I came to a decision. With my Pioneer receiver, I'm limited to 50, 80, 100, 150 or 200 hz crossover setting. There is no in between. Up until last night, I had my crossover set to 200 hz. Well, not anymore. After listening to 100, 150 and 200 hz extensively, I've settled on 150 hz. The reason being is that I hear a bit more definition (mid bass) with the satellites and less bloating through the Subs.
The other thing I found interesting was the various codecs I tried that converts two-channel music into surround. I feel, these are very revealing speakers. Unheard of for their size and price point. While messing around with Dolby Pro-Logic II, DTS Neo:6 and THX Neural (on Redbook), I've settled on DTS Neo:6 Cinema for music. It seemed to sound the closest to 2-channel music but with that added surround effect that makes the soundstage much more 3-D like. I found DPL II bloated the bass and made the high notes sound edgy. It also placed a veil on the sound. With the DTS Neo:6 Music mode, I found the bass frequencies to be somewhat MIA, and Neural THX just seemed to make everything sound louder and in your face. Also, with using two Min 20's for the center channel, it seems to sound better with DTS Neo:6 Cinema when the "Width" is set to "10" (the choice is 1-10) which pushes the majority of the sound to the center.

What you REALLY need is a pair of these
I'll just say I'm "Captivated".
With all the techologies that are coming down the pike, I'm wondering if we'll all be listening to surround sound with only two speakers, one day.
