    Hi Fans,

    I have a Pioneer AX5Ai and with two set of speakers:
    SPK A: 5.1
    SPK B: 2 ch

    Is there any simple way so that only the 2.1 (left, right & sub) in the 5.1 (SPK A) are used when the source is 2 ch.? Of course, "simple" here means a button on the remote or turning the jog...and I don't want to go thru the speaker setup everytime.

    Any help is appreciated.

    My yamaha has a speaker A and B button on the remote so you can switch them off/on independintly, otherwsie there maybe butons on the fron of the unit. I'm assuming the pioneer has A+B speaker post for the fronts.

    Hi Gazbarber,

    Thanks for your reply. Pioneer has speaker A & B.

    However, what I want to do is just to use the 2.1 in the 5.1 speaker set, i.e. speaker A without disabling the centre and rearL+R via the setup everytime... :rolleyes:

    Yea select stero, as your dsp, sould hopefuly force it into 2 ch stereo even if its a 5.1 source, or a native stereo source.

    Is there any nicer way e.g. having "Visual Confirmation"?

    It should tell you on your front display or onscreen if you have it hooked up. But i think all this information will probably be in ther manual.
