My setup is :
Quadral 5000 Set (500 F for front) (Frequency resp.: 28...22.000 Hz, Impedance: 4...8, Woofer 2 x 170 mm Ø, Midrange 100 mm Ø, Tweeter 25 mm Ø dome)
PIONEER S 51 W Sub
Desktop PC (asus commando board sound card, 8600 GT without any MKV accelerator in it)
Apple TV (for mainly airplay usage)
PC to LCD (Samsung full HD) via DVI to HDMI cable for Video (should I also connect HDMI to 920 ?)
PC to 920 via SPDIFF optical cable (SPDIFF is limited to 16bit)
Apple TV to 920 via HDMI
920 output to LCD via monster cable
My questions :
1) What should be my SW setting according to my 500 Fs as fronts ? should I leave the settings to MCACC and set %40 to my SW ?
2) Should I upgrade my sound card to get 24 bit/96k sound with my flac and ape files (receiver lights any sing on front lcd that it detects 24 bit/96k ?)
3) Should I upgrade my video card to get more accurate video on LCD ?
4) How can I make my front speaker sticking on the floor (to get little more accurate sound)
Thanks in advance any of your feedbacks and helps
