    How high is your amp set? You could be overdriving the rear speakers in these parts. I know I run across distortion in soundtracks occasionally. Then again, these soundtracks were designed for theaters. Most of the time signal distortion is lost in that environment, whereas the HT is much more discriminating. It may just be a problem with the soundtracks themselves. With medium grade equipment it is very difficult to say where the distortion is coming from. BTW, welcome to the inescapable, all consuming world of HT. It owns you now.....
