    Doesn’t matter – your choice, or whichever is on both the receiver and DVD player.

    So it really makes no difference as far as quality of sound goes?

    none. what does happen is that often the levels going to the speakers are different and typically, the louder is perceived as 'better'.

    Some people claim coaxial sounds better, but I've noticed that they all have mega-kilobuck systems. For the rest of us it won’t matter.

    Maybe the kilo-buck systems aren't designed well in some regards making them overly sensitive to normal variations and configurations [​IMG]

    I'll have to send you a story that I read about that from a pretty respectable fellow Wayne. I think you'll enjoy it.
