No disagreement about angles. But if the surrounds are above the listener's head, I'd expect him to hear sounds coming from above. Indeed, when we didn’t have speakers physically above, having the...

It's how Dolby position them in their HT demo rooms... I agree it isn't mandatory but it will give more separation between the listener level speakers and the overheads. The closer the surrounds are...

OK - I just tested. With DTS-HD MA, yes, there is sound coming from the front pair of overheads, as per the Denon Info display. With TrueHD 7.1 (Star Trek: Into Darkness) the 7.1 track behaves as...

I concur. But I abhor current limiting. Like I say, I can't see the point paying for powerful amps and then emasculating them. It's true that most people are loping along on just a few watts for...
