What can be the reason?
Another thing is when I press direct stereo the all system sounds very bad.
I am not in home now so I can`t be precise, but I figured out that turning OFF the "dynamic volume" control or something like that (on audio set-up, on the same screen that you choose the Audyssey mode, right underneath it), made things MUCH better for me.
Regarding your front speakers, in my point of view if they are large enough there`s no reason not to take full advnatge of their capabilities, so I`d set them to large and the LFE setting to "Main + LFE", 80Hz.
Another option, still under the Audyssey menu, is to choose the option of not equalizing the front`s. At the end of the day, play with the different settings under the Audyssey screen.
The distances in my set-up came out wrong, I've read the very useful guide but I didn`t figure out how to solve it, starting over did not solve the issue. Maybe it`s because my room is not perfectly rectangular ? Sound is quite good even though and I couldn`t figure out any audio delays (mismatches).
