I have the same complaint that you have, but it isn't the speakers. Change from bitstream to LPCM or PCM and very likely the rears will be too loud on the low volume settings.

I had purchased the S3500 for a good price on sale, but returned it because the UI was just so slow. I'm used to the PS3 and even my older Samsung BD player being more responsive.
