Yamaha DSPA1-Front (high) effect channels- ANY GOOD?



Is anyone using the front effect speaker outputs from their Yamaha DSPA1/DSPAX1/DSPAZ1. I would like to know if it is worth the extra outlay of another set of speakers/mounting brackets or shelfs + speaker wire. The front effect channels should sit above your main front speakers head height ,slightly further apart according to Yamaha's instructions. Any feedback whould be welcomed before I start to spend money for maybe something that doesn't justify the outlay.

Sure everyone will disagree with me but I tried them, didn't think it was worth the wifey aggro for the audible gains.
Haven't used them since.

Since we hopefully all know that the front effects only work when the DSP modes are engaged the question is: do you like them?

If yes, I would consider the front effects, if not forget about it ....


I think they are rubbish to be honest a gimmick for people in Japan hehehehehe

Still I love my Yammy DSP-A3090 to bits, but it's getting old and embarrassing

DSP-AZ1 or VSA-AX10 Mmmmmm
