The Denon diagram is NOT indicating that the listening position is in the center. Not sure how that idea came about. The angle ranges are what should be used as a guideline. For example, if *1=30 and...

+1 In ceiling speakers tend to create a hot spot in the area right below them. This is not supposed to be the way for the 7.1 configuration. At the least the fronts should not be that way.
