I'd like to know what people here think of turning off the center channel for DD and/or dts 5.1 (or '6.1') soundtracks. Decoders for either one will adapt to this speaker arrangement by mixing the center channel information into the left and right speakers (actually, my receiver does this in the analog domain to eliminate digital manipulation). My left and right speakers stradle a 110 inch diagonal front-projection screen. The current center speaker is below the screen (a little lower than the L/R speakers). Like many center channel speakers, it is decidely Lo-Fi, which is the main reason I want to ditch it. I would also like the new 'phantom' center channel (reproduced by the L/R speakers) to sound like it's coming from within the screen; impossible with a real center channel speaker below the screen. Aside from slightly lower localisation of the center channel sound, especially for off-center viewers, can anyone point out any obvious negative side effects of such an arrangement?
