Tried H7's as rear surround - awful
Well I tried connecting a pair of H7's to the SJ9 as rear surround and it is in my opinion not useable. The H7's can be configured in the SJ9's mesh network as rear surrounds left and right, but the implementation if awful. Here were the issues, some I already knew, but until I tried it, I did not know how bad this was going to be.
1. The rear channels are not discreet in the best modes (ATMOS & MOVIE), and what the SJ9 decides to sent to them varies from nothing, to very loud to just bad (very bad) simulated rear surround depending on input source and audio format.
2. Often the rear sound is delayed from the front sound, so sounds like an echo chamber.
3. You can not control volume level or mute on the rear speakers with your remote control, only manually on each speaker.
4. Mesh network dropouts (others have said use direct connect ethernet LAN connection instead)
The only good thing is that the H7 by itself sounds pretty good if you use it as a standalone bluetooth speaker. I returned mine.
