My question is, if these settings have no effect on external input, will my speakers sound as five large, as five small, or as only main large? I understand that you are saying that they will sound all large. My receiver is a Feather M-1000, and sounds like main large, and center and surround small, with no options. I want one that will output all five large. Sorry, probably all receivers work the same way but mine.
If somebody could help, I'm from Buenos Aires, my budget is 200 dollars, which are equivalent to 100 dollars on eBay. My sound card is a VIA VT1708S, which has a stereo digital output. Besides, I think my sound card has much better quality than the internal decoder of an old receiver, or am I wrong?
