In a relativly small room as mine (see my system), and always searching for a better Sound stage&Image with a 5.1 setup, I have found this suggestion as a compromise if needed: instead to put the bookshelves surrounds speakers to the sides at 2-3 feet above ear level, try to put it standmounted...
I'm a little confused about speaker placement.
Most online sources say that for a 5.1 setup the rear speakers should be to the side then others say behind you in the corners of your room.
I am wondering how the sides are finished on armless Berklines such as the Berkline Group 496 Style 50 Armless Chair & Half. In my application sides will be exposed. Does the microfiber material cover the sides? Are there exposed structural components?
I've been getting much more interested in the format development now that I own a HD-DVD player... here's another feed I read this morning:
Warner Bros. backs both sides in DVD war
Baltimore Sun, MD - Jan 6, 2007
I wonder if others will follow or just wait to see if one format takes the lead...
