Might I offer a suggestion to people who are concerened about the lack of speaker distance settings? If you have that capability on your current pre/pro or receiver, try changing them to what you would get with the Outlaw and see if you notice a difference. Set the subwoofer distance equal to the fronts (I assume this is what Outlaw would assume), and set the surrounds to their average distance value. I don't have this capability but would be interested in seeing if people that do have it notice much difference. It would be even better if you could grab a friend and do a blind test (double blind would be overkill) to see if you can tell which setting is which. If you do this, please report both your actual distances and tested distances. I would imagine that differences would be more noticable when the speakers are more irregularly spaced.
