For consumer gear, such as the Yamaha AVR mentioned in the post immediately above his, all speakers should be set to the same level. At least if you trust Dolby to not lie to us.
Also, despite the fact that his stolen avatar image of one of their trademarked logos, he does not work for, nor officially represent Dolby.
In A/V reproduction accuracy, there IS no concept of "accounting for personal taste/preference". As art consumers we don't "pick" the level of bass, nor the tint/brightness of a scene's sky, any more than we pick the ending of a novel or Mona Lisa's type of smile. "High fidelity" means "high truthfulness", faithful to the original artist's intent: an unmodified, neutral, accurate copy of the original master, ideally being exact and with no discernable alterations, aka "transparency".
