    I have a Denon AVR-1906 7.1 receiver and I have hooked up my rear speakers to the terminals labeled "Surround" L and R on the back of it. My question is that there are also terminals for a "Surround Back" L and R as well. Do I have my speakers hooked up to the right terminals (or should I hook them up to the "Surround Back" terminals)? My couch is against the wall so I have my rear speakers on stands on each side of the couch (I also have 2 fronts, a center and a sub). If I hook them to the "Surrounnd Back" will there be a difference in the sound?

    Surround back outputs are for the rears in a 6.1/7.1 array. If you have a 5.1 array, your surrounds should be connected to the SURROUND output. You should also make sure you have your receiver setup correctly for the array you have, that is to say surrounds should be set to ON and surround backs should be set to OFF/NO/etc if they are not present.
