    A2 with effects channels (KEF 60s).
    Watched Gladiator in DTS General, absolutely mad audio! Great.
    It's not perfect, but I like it.
    They are above and 2-3 foot wider than my stereo pair.
    They only work in DSP modes, but for films, ie, Terminator 2 in DD Sci-Fi etc they are a riot.
    Personal taste at the end of the day. If you like them, good, if not, they will always be useful in a party! [​IMG]

    P.S.

    If you have the space, let it rip and duck. Excellent fun. [​IMG]

    I've mine set back from the main stereo pair about 3 feet, & about 6 feet up. Skanks, I think that the 7 speakers are used for DD/DTS, but that you only get the full DSP effects when using them. Does that make sense?
    If you go to the pictures page of my website, you can just see them on the pic showing the top roller blind.

    I'm sure the manual says they are to be placed on either side of the centre, between that and the two main speakers. I don't have any yet, probably get aset of £10 ariston ones from richer sounds.

    what's you favourite Dsp mode. I like sci-fi, which i find suits especially sci-fi-horror films as it seems to accentate whining low end freqencies and sounds, but it can get annoyingly echoey on speech and other films.

    Have you found a distinct difference having the effects speakers?

    The adventure and general settings are my choicest ones, they add space without too much reverb.
    I've played with the 'acoustic settings' on the amp and thought them to be too OTT. So in the end I went by ear and set them up blind as it were.
    They only work with a DSP engaged, doesn't matter which one, it's only for fun anyway.
    Yes they do lessen the quality of the audio from it's original state, but (especially for £10, why not?), I guarantee you'll love it when Arnie crunches through walls and things, whilst sitting back with a beer! [​IMG]
