    Hi, I have an awkward space to work with, and have been sitting with it for six months trying to figure out how I can get a half-decent setup in here. I'm planning a 7.2.4 setup, but ok with 5.2.4 if the space isn't conducive. WAF requires a sectional for the main seating area. To allow for...

    I'm currently shopping for a new AVR/Pre-Pro that is capable of Auro-3D. My goal is to do a base 7.1.4 Dolby Atmos/DTS:X setup. But I also want to do at least 10.1 (with VOG) Auro-3D on top of that. To get the conversation going: can I set up the AVR to only do the 7.1.4 set up and not use the...

    I'm struggling to come up with a way to mount my surround speakers for a 5.1 setup in a reasonable way. This is partly because I've run out of furniture (or boxes) that I can use for prototyping - to try and listen to different placements for the left surround speaker. It has to go on the wall...
