I know that my setup is not ideal (whose is) but at the same time, it is quite unorthodox. It does work quite well, and I ran the Audyessey setup to make it sound even better. However, are there any suggestions or comments about it that one would like to share?
One question I would like to know is that the 2 rear and 1 right surround speakers are mounted to the wall, while the 1 left surround speaker is on a bookshelf slightly lower than the height of the mounted speakers (about 1.5-2 feet). Is this something that is a major issue, or is it useable with the Audyessey setup?
The equipment I am using is:
2X Energy CF-70 Front Floor Speakers
1X Energy CC-10 Center Speaker
4X Energy CB-5 Surround Speakers
1X Klipsch 10" 450 Watt Subwoofer
Everything is hooked up through the Denon, and is hooked up to a Directv Genie Dvr and all the modern video game systems.
My friend also mentioned to me that a 5.1 setup might actually be better than the 7.1, so I'd like an opinion on that as well. Since I already had the extra 2 speakers and a receiver that can handle it, I figured I might as well put it to use.
