Hello I am new to all this speaker stuff
I use a samsung sub and receiver.. Not sure of the specs

I have Polk audio m20 tower speakers (2)
And Polk audio r300 bookshelves (2)
And a samsung center speaker

This is strictly for music
Connected through spdif to my computer

What is the best way to setup the Polk speakers?
Towers infront or back? I have a mode on the amp that will play music on all channels

Any help would be sweet
Thank you

90% + of the audio information in a Dolby Digital sound track goes to the front 3 speakers. The side surrounds (true "rear" surrounds are added in a 7.1 setup) carry mostly ambient and effects audio.

One exception to this general description is true multi-channel audio, like audio tracks from SACD or DVD-Audio sources, properly decoded by players which can handle them. The audio then is true 5 channel recordings, but the emphasis on playback will still be the "front 3" speakers, so put your best speakers up front.
