Can anyone confirm whether you can set the front left and right speakers to share the center channel? It is not practical for me to use a center speaker, I'm sure you can, just wanted to check before I take the plunge.
I don't have my manual with me, but on my 805 I am sure there is a sound option to accomodate this request. I think it is Theatre Dimensional. (See description from Onkyo website below)
Theater Dimensional - You can experience the excitement of surround sound from as few as two ordinary speakers.
Onkyo's exclusive Theater-Dimensional circuitry takes the complexity out of conventional surround-sound setups and lets you experience the excitement of surround sound from as few as two ordinary speakers. Want more? Theater-Dimensional's unique multi-speaker modes let you place up to five speakers conveniently by the TV, for the most realistic virtual-surround sound possible.
Thanks for the replies, I think that quote is referring to a virtual speaker function, but could (and am normaly) wrong My query is whether the front L/R speakers can split the center channel between themselves, so I can hear dialogue. I haven't got room in my study for a center speaker as the monitor sits in it's place.
My old trusted YAMAHA 750SE I am using at the moment splits the sound perfectly.
