joerod, how many speakers do you have in your listening area? From what I was reading in your posts, you are disconnecting speakers and moving speakers to other bindings to test the different listening modes, right?
From my testing today, I finally realize that to get the most out of this system *you must* have all 11 (eleven) speakers wired to the system! Otherwise, you are missing out on a lot of different listening modes! evidence of this is pages 75 to 80 of the pdf manual! You will see that if you have all eleven speakers hooked up, you may enjoy *all* of the different listening modes. Pressing the /sp layout/ button will toggle speakers in *some 11 speaker modes* , for example audysse dsx!
To reiterate, if you only have 7 or 9 physical speakers, and do not want to add more speakers to your room, (but still want height), stick with the other models, such as the 607 which has IIz height already built in.
