Just have a few q's. Are you actually using speakers for your front surround?? I'm using an old pair of Bose 2.2's :b...with a Polk RTi and SVS set up for my 5.1 set-up...should I bother getting, say, RT25i's for the front surround?? Or just run the front surround through the mains? What DSP mode do you use most often when watching DVD's? I can notice some difference when removing the Bose...they're also 4 feet above and between the mains, even thought Yamaha reccommends them to be on the outside of the mains.....I just have no possible way of placing them anywhere else. I am using the RXV 3000...if that matters....thanks.
