    …sorry to disappoint some, just the amp you understand.
    Just playing with some settings and I’m finding myself getting more confused (although I think I’m getting somewhere).
    I have a 5.1 setup and am getting confused on the speaker sizes settings:
    Auto setup : Custom
    Front L/R : Small
    Centre : Small
    Surround L/R : Small
    Surr Back L/R : None
    Sub : Present

    5.1 Rears : Sur L/R
    Is the 5.1 Rears correct?? The more I read the manual the more it’s making no sense…
    “Sur L/R redirects 5.1 surround signal to the surround left and right speakers. No signal will be
    directed to the surround back left or right speakers.” I’m reading this as the rear surround for the extra 7.1 will go to the 5.1 surrounds??? Am I getting this or is it too early?
    Cheers!
    Chris

    That is correct. If you only have a 5.1 system but a playing back a 6.1 channel soundtrack then you want the receiver to redirect the audio for the surroundback channels to the surround channels.

    The only reason I don't make any mention of a 7.1 channel soundtrack is because there aren't any.

    Thanks Crusty.

    It was set to both and I think I am now getting more information from the rear channels.

    I actually use a 6.1 set-up with my Arcam/Rotel gear. That extra centre rear speaker makes a big difference, with both 5.1 and 6.1 audio!
