I'm not getting the surround experience I feel I should be getting with my system. I know there are a slew of variables involved, but I'm hoping some general nudges in the right direction will help. I have the Yamaha RX-A810 receiver connected to 2 Klipsch F-30 mains, 2 Klipsch S-20 surrounds and a Klipsch C-20 center channel (subwoofer will be the next purchase). I am using the Sony BDP-S780 as my source.

As an example, I played 2012 and the sound seemed tinny and the sound from the surrounds was very "soft". Then I played TRON Legacy and got much more bass, but the surrounds still seemed quieter than I expected. If I do nothing in the way of settings, will the Blu-ray player and receiver "talk" to each other via HDMI and make the proper codec settings or, for instance, do I need to go into the Blu-ray disc menu and select an appropriate setting for my system (e.g. 5.1 vs 2.0)? While many probably prefer a flat response setting (no EQ) I am wondering if way to "dial in" EQ for my particular room. There are so many settings that I'm not sure where to start. Perhaps a calibration disc is the answer?

I'm confident that the receiver and speakers are of a quality to produce great sound, I just need to get pointed in the right direction as to how to achieve it.
