    When setting up a modest system is it more beneficial to assign the rear speakers for normal surround or presence for Atmos? Right now I have a 7.1 setup but am adding front height speakers. Thanks in advance! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    I have recently got one of these receivers, and this is my first time tryng to set it up. I have rear surrounds, they are working with test tones, and I have set the levels correctly. I am trying to get them activated when watching 5.1 sources, which is proving difficult. I use the "standard"...

    In the quest to get my new HT designs finalized, I am looking at all aspects, one at a time, and it's speaker time. I have LCR and 1 sub taken care of already, and I am (of course) going to match my one sub with a twin brother to balance things out, and this leaves the side and rear surrounds...

    I am piecing together my HT and have descent front, center and sub but no side or rear speakers for a 7.1 setup. The room is 25' x 13'. How do I pick good side and rear speakers? Their is a deal on Woot for JBL LS326W. Thoughts?

    Here are some pictures of my latest project. It won't go as deep as some LLT designs I have seen but I have limited space and power. It's a big step up from the 8" band pass I was using.

    Hi everyone, I'm hoping someone can help us. My husband and I have been trying to get this thing to work for several hours and have spent close to 2 hours on the phone with Samsung tech support, who was absolutely useless. We just bought a new Samsung blu-ray home theater system. The model is...

    Hi All. I have a question about placement for my rear speakers. The speakers I have are Snell SR5 (see Pic) and I'm unable to follow the standard guideline (135 to 150 degrees from the listening position) for mounting these speakers because the door is part of the back wall (see pic). Also...

  14. Audio Processing
    I was playing around last night with my set up and came across an issue. The Monsters University Blu-ray has a system optimization program with it. One where you can set up contrast, format, etc. Toggling through each speaker, I can not get it to isolate the sound on the rear back surround...

  16. System Setup and Connection
    Right now I have my system set up as 11.2 channel. Maybe a little kill but now I am starting to second guess my addition of the rear surrounds. What's everybody thoughts on using the rear surrounds? Are they really needed? I know there is no audio format for this!

    I purchased the Sony HT ST7 sound-bar not to long ago and am thinking of adding two rear speakers to it. I'm thinking of purchasing a new receiver (not sure which one yet) and using the sound-bar as the front speakers (left, center, right) but I am not really sure if this is even possible or if...

    I have an Onkyo 818 and I'm in the planning phase for my dedicated HT. I had a simple 7.1 setup in my last place so I'm familiar with how the extra rear channels sound but now that I have a new receiver capable of handling an extra set up front I'm wondering how that would sound. I'll be pre...

    Just received my AVR-X4000 last week and I absolutely love it except for the fact that it seems to produce lots of noise in the rear channels with Dolby Digital/Comcast cable as a source. The noise comes through the tweeters and is easily audible from 6-8 ft away. My front channels are...
