    I currently have my speakers calibrated and placed pretty well for HT - specifically for Dolby Digital 5.1. The fronts also image pretty well for 2 channel stereo. I will be connecting a DVD-A player shortly and I was wondering if the speaker placement will necessarily be the same? Recalibrating them for a new source is simple, but moving them each time I switch sources is not possible.
    In short, is the 5.1 speaker placment for DD 5.1 the same as the 5.1 speaker placement for DVD-A?
    BTW, my setup is the Divas 4.1/2.1/c3 with a HK avr520. The new DVD-A unit is the JVC XV-SA70BK. Thanks.

    Above is a common placment for DVD-A's and such. Note the differences from the Dolby standard.
    Do the best you can with your room and don't obsess over it too much...don't want to suck the fun out of it!
