First of all, I'd like to say I like this basics forum. 1. Ok, heres my setup. Sony-kv27fs17 T.V. Onkyo ds595 reciever Bose 701 tower speakers for front Bose vcs-10 Center channel Sony dvpns-300 dvd player I am not a big bass fan. At all. I don't like set-ups where my drink shakes during dialogue if you know what I mean.. I care for the most part about dialogue. I don't want anything that "beats". I only have 3 channels right now. The 2 fronts and the center. When I select Dolby Digital on my reciever, it obviously turns on the center channel, but the "highs" or dialogue from that point on seem filtered and not quite there. When I switch it back to Stereo and use just the front left and right I hear the dialogue much, much better. In fact most of the time I switch from DD to stereo just b/c the talking is more clear. Is this b/c DD NEEDS the 5.1 setup and I only have 3 channels? Would a better center channel be the solution? The Bose vcs-10 that I am using is quite thin and does not take up too much space. It wasn't the cheapest either.. I think around 200 dollars. If I want to get some rears, should I go with Bose also? Any reccomendations? Any help would be most appreciated.
