    Are the rear speakers for these two formats mono? I used to know this but have forgotten.:b

    Thanks!

    I would personally say, "yes and no." [​IMG]

    As-is, yes, but if you apply THX Ultra2 processing, which decorrelates the rears, they are really not mono. Same signal, but phase shifted slightly to give better separation between them.

    And then there's Logic 7, which isn't mono either.
