    Hi all, I am moving into a new place and wanting to upgrade my 3.1 system to 5.1 or 5.1.2. I have read mixed suggestions on the surround speakers placements, some sites say that they should be 90 degree to the seating, but some other sources have said 110 - 120 degrees. Dolby seems to also...

    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...

    Hi, My 2.0 speakers (Quad S1) are currently sitting on a Wooden PC table (sometimes on a bamboo stool beside the table). They sound somewhat boomy.
