Sony Receiver

Question about sony DG500 Receiver and surround sound?

I recently bought a sony DG500 Receiver that has dolby digital ex and dts ex. my question is every time I use dolby digital or dolby pro logic all the talking comes out of the centre speaker and the sound effects come out the sides as needed. Is that the way it supposed to work? I have not used the dts yet so I'm not sure if it does it there too.

Yes, that is exactly the way it's supposed to work.

Here's the thing: when you run just left and right (red and white) audio inputs into a receiver, it's only a stereo signal, in other words, two channel. Since most Home Theaters have 5 speakers (plus the LFE 'Low Frequency Effects' or Subwoofer, which is the .1) it takes that stereo signal and "fakes it" across all 5 speakers. That's why you don't have any clear separation from one speaker to the next.

With a digital input (optical/tos link or HDMI) or even a discrete 6 channel analog input you are actually giving each speaker exactly the signal it should be getting. So you're actually doing it "right" now =D

Now the biggest thing is to have the speakers position correctly...center in the center, left and right a good distance apart facing in to the "sweet spot", left and right surround just past the "sweet spot" facing towards it, and the rear left surround and rear right surround behind you.
