Hey mate, thanks for your reply.
I should’ve changed the title, I suppose!
I’m just asking for advice on speaker placement really.
I’ve put quite a lot of effort into following the Dolby recommendations as I said above, but hearing from those with real world experience setting them up may enlighten me to something I have overlooked…!
I have all the ear lever speakers and subwoofers.
I have a relatively large budget considering I need not purchase those speakers.
I had a 7.1ch setup previous to this and am building a new house.
I require one more 5ch power amp to complete the amplification requirements.
I am heavily leaning toward an Emotiva RMC1 as the processor, though I will not require the upgradability, so maybe an XMC2 or RMC1L may be a better option.
I nominated the MiniDSP HD as my bass management as I can daisy-chain the rear 2 subs together/split the input signal (though not desirable) and treat them as 1. 4 outputs on the MiniDSP HD but that’s okay.
