    When choosing SW locations another question came to mind when I was choosing from two different distance settings to make in the AVR. I tested different distance settings and landed on 2.7m or 5.2m and they are both good compromises between L and R for support in the XO frequency at 80Hz but...

    I've had a BenQ W500 for several years now and have been fairly happy with it, but it's time to upgrade and see what I've been missing with 1080p Blu-rays. I've been running a 100" 16:9 fixed-mount 1.0 gain screen and am open to going a bit bigger. 106" is likely, 120" is possible if I move...
