You guys are amazing. Thank you for all the feedback. Yes, by "lift" I mean "amplify", not "make it sound like it's higher off the floor"
I wanted to respect the forum topic, so I created a separate thread about my speaker setup in the Speakers forum. Here is the link
. I would love to get your thoughts there. I posted some specific questions there about how it will sound if I try to mix the towers with an in-ceiling speaker, or a center channel that's not physically right in the center.
As for A1000-specific things:
- I did a Manual Setup rather than YPAO. I looked in there and under "Configuration", "Center" is set to "None." Is that all I need to confirm?
- I am curious about the correct choice for "Power Amp Assign." Should I use "7ch Normal," or "5chBI-AMP"?
- I'll try using 2-Channel DSP mode for now, but I'm hoping for another solution beyond this, because I'm finally the proud owner of 2 rear channels, and I'd love to use them for rear channel stuff.
