Hi I have just moved from my rented accomodation and into my own house. Now that I have the luxury of being able to set-up my HT system how I want it - I wanted your comments/feedback on how best to do this. The problem, like many people, is that my lounge isn't the ideal shape and that I have a chimney breast which is off center on one of the side walls. This makes getting the right speaker placement slightly more difficult - at least for me. Then of course there is the other half - but I am slowly wearing her down as we speak My system consists of the following: Sony BRAVIA 32" LCD (currently mounted on an Alphason Aragon stand) Yamaha DSP A3090 Amp EVO Center EVO One Fronts EVO Compact Rears I dont have a sub yet - funds dont permit it at the moment. Anyway, I have drafted up 3 layouts which I am considering. At the moment, I have my setup with the TV in the corner and left/right surrounds firing in from the side high up on the wall. The problem is that I feel that distance between the Fronts and Rears is too small. I dont think I'm getting a large enough soundfield down to the speakers being so close and this also makes it hard to distinguish sound from the fronts with sound from the rears. So I would appreciate you more knowledgeable guys giving me whatever feedback/comments you can on what I should do. BTW in one of the layouts, where the listening position is marked as being the RUG. Most likely I will move one of the chairs around or get a bean bag or something. One last thing, if anyone is interested. I knocked up the diagrams using Diagram Designer.
