Any audiophiles have thoughts as to comparison of these different surround modes?
Tried Auro 2D on Stereo sources and its good, i like the way it moves the music more the the front speakers.
If you set Dolby to Center Spread its doing exact the same.
Also moving the (stereo) music more to the front speakers and less from de center.
As setting Dolby to center spread it will do this to ALL sources that will have a stereo based sound.
So if i set DCS it will also be active on TV programs, and i do not like that.
This can not be saved for specific sources, think its a bug thats active for years now
So to avoid this you can use Auro 2D on stereo and if you want all your speakers to work, also the Height speaker in a 5.1.4 setup, then use Dolby and lower the center by 3 dB and up the fronts by 3 dB and you have the "Auro 2D effect" but with the Height speakers also working.
So for the Auro effect most users talk about on stereo, its not something magical Auro is doing, you can do this also with Dolby and DTS if you want and save the settings.
