Can someone explain what where is "slightly more towards the front than with conventional surround systems" in the statement on page 65 of the manual. I take it to mean in front of the listening plain but on the next page of the manual the speaker are shown even with the listen plane.
Placement of the surround left and right channels when using surround back speakers
Using surround back speakers greatly improves the positioning of the sound at the rear. Because of this, the surround left and right channels
play an important role in achieving a smooth transition of the acoustic image from the front to the back. As shown on the diagram above, in a
movie theater the surround signals are also produced from diagonally in front of the listeners, creating an acoustic image as if the sound were
floating in space.
To achieve these effects, we recommend placing the speakers for the surround left and right channels slightly more towards the front than
with conventional surround systems. Doing so sometimes increases the surround effect when playing conventional 5.1-channel sources in the
6.1 surround or DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 mode. Check the surround effects of the various modes before selecting the surround mode. :confused:

Hi,
Most systems recommend that you have the l/r surrounds slight behind the listener, so with the 6.1 setup, you bring those l/r surround speakers forward a bit so now they are even with the listen in position. I believe that is what they mean.

Nope you almost want to think of the as side speakers, a little bit off axis from listining position.
