Marantz SR5400 Speaker Settings

I've just bought my first home cinema setup centered around a Marantz SR5400 A/V receiver. Most of the setup menus have been relatively easy to figure out and I've already programmed in the speaker distances and adjusted the speaker volumes as appropriate.

There's a third menu though that has me stumped and relates primarily to the surround channel levels (option 4 on the main menu for those with a Marantz amp).

These adjustments appear (in my ignorance) to perform exactly the same function as the individual speaker volume settings.

Can anyone tell me what the difference is and in what circumstances I would need to adjust the surround channel volumes:confused:
