I have a Sony V333 ES receiver. In the set up menu, it has settings for speaker distances (from the listening position). Here's what I don't get: The center speaker cannot be set up to be farther away from you than the front L & R. It can be set up to be closer than the fronts. I don't understand why it is like this. I listen to alot of two-channel (music), and have my mains slightly out into the room for imaging purposes (I know ideally there should be nothing between them, I have a 51" HDTV, but HT and two-channel share the same system). Anyway I am perplexed why the receiver won't let me put the center farther away. As I see it now, the center and mains are set at the same distance, which makes sense, they are about the same distance away. Dose any one's receiver(or Pre/Pro) allow them to set the center closer? What set up would have the center closer than the fronts? On a side question: How do I know these settings are correct for me, short of getting out the tape measure? Is there a test disc for speaker distance and delay settings? I have Video Essentials, and don't recall seeing anything on there about this.
