If you have 7.1, go with D PLIIX. I really dig it's sound. For example, I've been listening to Static X's Cult of Static and it sounds great using PLIIX. PL, PLII, and Geo X, not as much.
I'm running all digital until the AVR makes the switch to Analog via the speakers out.
For LP's and other Analog sources, I normally run 2.1 and keep the signal path as unobstructed as possible.
Just my 2%.
Agree it's a personal thing, so here's my personal setting for Dolby Pro Logic II:
Center Width 5
Try it and then tweak it to your taste.
