    I know I need to upgrade my reciever (currently Sony STR-DE825)[​IMG]
    But it has done well by me for quite a while.
    But I've always had 1 question
    When I go into the Speaker Setup and I get to the "distance" setting, I have the fronts set to 9 feet (thats how far away from them I sit),and I have the surrounds set to 9 feet also, but that's only because thats how high it will go.
    Should I set the distance lower on he surrounds? As in how far they are from my ears?
    What does that distance setting actually do?
    It's always puzzled me
    Also I have a pair of JBL N26 mains, Ncenter, N24 surrounds, and a Kenwood SW 200 Sub
    Should I set my mains to "large" in the speaker setup?
    What difference does it make if I set it to large?
    Thanks much

    The Distance control on my Sony says that If I set the distance CLOSER to me, the Sony will try and compensate by delaying the signal a few miliseconds so it sounds like it is at the optimum distance 9which I believe is around ( feet)

    So ya think I should reduce the distance on the surround setting? As they are closer than 9 feet to my ears

    You should set the distance setting on your receiver basically as close to the distance the spakers ACTUALLY are from you....
