You're supposed to sit on the couch when you make the comparisons.

Why is Mark's couch talking to me?

Roger, agree that with the couch right up against the wall, back surrounds in a 7.1 setup wouldn't have operating room. The best result would be with the side surrounds as far back as possible.

Brian, you don't understand; for Mark's benefit you should describe the sound of your couch in its previous position and its improved sound now.

I was just joking about his couch situation. The sound field improved when I did it, but I don't remember the details. Not going to put it back there and recalibrate just to recheck.

Thanks for the input guys. Moving the couch is not an option due to the limited placement of the side surrounds.

You wouldn't move the side surrounds, only the couch. At least just to test to see if there is any improvement.
