That is, of course, true. But it existed as a result of considerable measuring, optimisation of speaker and subs placement based on that measuring, considerable acoustic treatment of the room, after...

+1. I'd say that adding Dirac Live to my HT is one of the most significant upgrades I have ever made. Right up there alongside my dual Submersives and room treatments.

Yes with all speakers engaged. I probably, but can't remember, also tested with just the overheads playing (as I usually do). If there were any differences between FH+TM and TF+TR configs, it was so...

Interesting. I am set up for FH+TM, with the speakers within the Dolby recommended angles for both. I too cannot meet the spec for TR as there is insufficient room behind me. However, I have also...
