Hi

just became owner of one of these thanks to a VERY generous brother :)

Quick query ref settings.

With the Sony Soundfields there is a V.Multi Dimension option which manual says 'Creates many virtual speakers from a single pair of actual surround speakers'.

Anyone know how many virtual speakers are created ? or indeed if this function is effective for someone like myself having a 5.1 speaker set-up ?

Cheers

It just fills (supposedly) the gaps between the physical speakers with virtual speakers. It isn't that affective and can't say it gives the impression of there being speakers were real ones don't exist. It does create more ambience, but this is its only virtue. It will not create a virtual 7.1 setup if that is what you are after and enquiring about.
