    I have a CSW Newton speaker system that I am just setting up. There are L/C/R, subwoofer,2 side surrounds, and 2 back surrounds. The surrounds have switches to select bipole-monopole-dipole. Seems I read somewhere that the backs should be set on dipole and the sides on bipole. I could not make sense out of what the manual said about this. Does anybody out there have a knowlege of this issue?

    Sometime today I'll turn the Onkyo 989 on for the first time; must say it's intimidating.

    I'm not sure if there's any concrete guideline. Just experiment with all dipole, all bipole, then the combination and see which sounds best to you. Generally with one set of dipoles the advice is to place them to the sides, in line with the listening position.
