You only need to set the speakers to small and large for surround processing in the digital domain.
That is exactly what i was thinking of doing but needed specific details on how to implement it. Thx for the details.
Now, for Analog Direct, is it completely 'ARC-free'? No remnants of ARC, i.e Bass Management configurarions, level trims, xovers etc? I ask because i tried the analog direct route with my stereo analog i/ps and still got sound from my sub. I expected a 2.0 output but instead got a 2.1 output (My normal music speaker config with ARC engaged is 2.1). What gives?
