Pioneer VSX 2016

Hi Guys

I have the following amp I have read through the manual but still need a bit of help setting this up. Im using the auto mcacc feature and i have a 5.1 speaker set up. However im not entire sure the best way for the MCACC to pick up that im only using a 5.1 rather than 7.1. So do i need to plug the rear speaker in Suround back or just Surround left/right. I also seem to keep getting an error when using the auto MCACC.

Thanks In Advance

Hi there, welcome to the forum...

I would say the surround/left-right. The surround back are only used in a 7.1 setup.

I have a VSX-1016 and had no problems with my 5.1 setup this way.

Sometimes you get an error when there is too much ambient noise or your subwoofer is cranked up too high. I'm sure there are others as well.
