    I went through my Yamaha AV’s manual and it says that one could set time delay for the front and rear center speaker. But I wanted to set time delay for my front main 2 speakers instead because I have it pulled out into the room so it’s no longer in the same plane as the TV screen. In another word, the front main speaker is now 4-feet nearer to the sitting position compared to the front center speaker. I did that so as to increase soundstage depth during music playback. Any idea as to what’s the solution? Thanks in advance.

    What model Yamaha is it? Some of the older models didn´t give you the option of adjusting the delay times for all channels.

    The new Yamaha 630. I used it's pre-out into my NAD C370 AUX input for music playback. Hence the speaker are being pulled into the room and becoming nearer to the listening position then the center speaker.

    Does it not have a speaker distance option on that model? Usually found in the main setup menu along with the speaker sizes (small/large etc).

    I have just had a look in my sons 620 manual, should be roughly the same.

    Looks like you can only set the delay time for the centre here, increasing the delay of the centre simulates moving the centre speaker further back, so leaving it on the default setting of 0 is going to be best for you here.

    On Yamaha amps the fronts are the reference and thus at zero level. So unless you can give the center a positive delay it's a no-go ...

    You can set the delay of the center speakers and rear speakers (RT, LT, CRT) in the 630se (as well as rvx630). As mentioned the main speakers are the are not the effects channel so hence cannot be set. However in multichannel mode you can change the effects of DSP mode. I will look if the same can be done in "stereo DSP" mode.
