Roughly 1/3rd room length from the back wall is where you'll typically get the smoothest frequency response (fewer/smaller peaks & dips). With the listeners' ears (NOT back of the couch) 5 feet from...

No difference; just more words. Further on that same line it says "DTS Digital Surround 5.1". What's the difference between that and "DTS 5.1" that you see on other back covers? Again, just more...

Firstly, TrueHD and DD+ are not "channel based". They're data packing/compression technologies, so they can be used on channels or objects. As for "speakers on ear level": Wides are at ear level and,...

Not to further frustrate you, but we haven't even mentioned levels yet. If you're going to take a mono TM signal, split it to TF & TR outputs, only to use subsequent centre extraction to recover the...

From your diagram, it looks the left Side speaker would be around 100 degrees from centre and the left Rear speaker around 160 degrees from centre. That's pretty good separation. I don't see how a...

With uneven delays on the two incoming channels, the PLII circuit sees it as a stereo signal, not a mono signal (it needs to see the signal as mono for proper centre extraction).

Why move the surrounds? Keep them in line with the front row, maintaining the separation from the surround-back speakers.
