I have 9.1 speakers connected, regular 7.1 plus front wides for Audyessy DSX.
After running Audyssey setup using this guide: (The Audyssey thread is 730 pgs if you really want to know more about it !)http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showp...postcount=5701
I use the 'THX Cinema' listening mode (pg 78 in manual) to matrix the SB speakers or 'Audyessy DSX' to engage the front wide speakers, which does not use the SB speakers.
For most TV and Bluray viewing I usually use the DSX listening mode which really
enhances the front sound stage. The DSX feature is the main reason I upgraded from the 706.
