For once, bud and I are in total agreement.
When I was moving to CIH around 2005, I made a set up that allowed me to shift the L and R speakers. At the time, all LCRs were below the screen.
My screen is not even that big, yet there is perfectly clear stereo separation with the speakers just inside the 16:9 portion of the Scope screen.
The proof of the testing I did came from simply listening to film sound track that have are older and we've all heard hundreds of times.
The idea of using an AT screen is so that sound and picture match better than if the sound comes from outside the screen area.
My listening tests confirmed that placement just inside the 16:9 area worked better than when the speakers were inline with the edges of the Scope screen for both movies in Scope and flat. In fact, movies in flat became annoying with the speakers inline with edges of the Scope screen.
And then there was 4x3 content.
What I have attempted to achieve is a seamless blend of sound and picture and to hopefully reproduce the effect heard in a good cinema. I believe I have done that.
