    Can anyone help?

    I've just moved house and I'm about to set up my 5.1 in my living room. The only thing is, I want my rear speakers mounted on the wall which means they will be around 26 feet apart. Is this too far apart? I have a fairly beefy denon setup but my old front room was half this length!

    I dont like the idea of stands as they will be in open space and more than likely get knocked over.

    Also, can someone recommend some good flat speaker cable (£10 per sq metre - ish) that I can lay under a wooden floor?

    Cheers!

    That should be ok as long as you set the delay and volume for the speakers in question properly on the Denon. Having the rear speakers wide apart should actually give a better surround ambience than if the speakers were close to the listener.

    Only one hitch is the Denon has a maximum distance it will allow you to input as a speaker distance for the delay times. If it's too big, the amp will ask you to relocate the speaker.
