    When listening to stereo, or when outputting the test tone, I notice that sound is coming from the surround speakers as well as the front left/right.
    I have a feeling I inadvertently pressed a button today when setting up. Can anyone throw any light on this.
    Thanks

    The display doesn't say 5 channel stereo (5 Ch Stereo) does it? There is a mode that seeds sound to all speakers equally

    press the input button on the back of the remote until the display says "auto"
    or the blue buttons on the back also force it into different modes

    I had exactly the same problem when I first set mine up.

    If its the same as the 1906, make sure you havent pressed the speaker A/B button on the unit

    Thanks for you replies. The display was stating "stereo", neither 2ch or 5, or even 7. Even in "Direct" mode it was still outputting sound to the rear speakers. There must be a button that outputs to 4 speakers, centre speaker was silent, but I couldn't find it and gave up in the end so I did a reset. That worked but there was no flashing on the display as stated in the manual.
    Now, there's something else which puzzles me. When listening to a DTS 5.1 music disc I can only hear it in surround when I select EX Input. When selecting the "DTS" soundfield it outputs to the front three speakers and the sub only. Weird.

    Which posts on the back of the amp have you wired the back speakers into?

    I've wired them to SBL and SBR, which I'm pretty certain is correct as the other options are for SL and SR, which are for speakers mounted on a side wall. Is this correct??

    Also, isn't the A and B speaker option for switching between two sets of fronts? If so, why would this make a difference??

    If you have a 5.1 system then your Surround speakers need to be connected to the SL and SR speaker terminals. The SBL and SBR are used for a 6.1/7.1 setup.

    The test tone will play out of all the connected speakers by default, starting with FL, C, FR, etc etc.

    Try resetting it again because if the display didn't flash whilst you were holding down the buttons on the front panel I doubt if it was reset properly. You need to keep the two buttons down (as mentioned in the manual) whilst you switch the power back on. Hold them a few seconds and the display will flash every couple of seconds or so.

    Thanks. It would seem you are correct - I have just changed the connections around and I now get surround when outputting a DTS music disc.

    Do you think that's why I had two channel radio/cd outputting to four speakers instead of just two? On second thoughts it cannot be as the reset seemed to cure the problem.
    Thanks again
