I've been a audiophiler for about 2 years now and I still lack some A/V knowledge. Right now I'm in a desperate need of a new subwoofer and alot of people are telling me to get SVS subs,but I'll leave this topic in my other thread in the Speaker & Subwoofer section. Ok anyways, about DRC (Dynamic Range Control) I have this option on my Samsung and Pioneer dvd players. I seriouslly forgot what this thing does for a movie. I also know the DRC is only good for Dolby Digital Soundtracks and not for DTS. I know in some dvd players u can change the DRC into low,med or high,but both my dvd players u can only turn it on or off. Would it be better if its turn off or turn on? I just bought a new house so I'm really on a budget for my a/v stuff and I will still need to find out the measurements of my family room. For years now I still need don't get on how to use the sound delay options on my reciever. Most recievers use MS,but mines use meters or feet. This is my current setup Front R- 8 Feet Front L- 8 Feet Center- 6 Feet Surround R- 1 feet Surround L- 1 feet Surround back left and right- 2 feet. Most of the surround speakers are near my couch I cant put them further at the side or back because the limited space of my living room,but tell me this. Am I doing this right? Lol!
