now i read the dolby website so i get the basics of dpl iiz.
what i wonder is this my AVR sony 5600ES, says in the manual to enjoy pl2z, your height speakers will be wired into the front B terminals. and you must run your AVR in the speakers A+B mode. (balls out)
there there is the little *
* states that when in PL2z mode, music or movie, sound can not come from the front and surround rears simultaneously. its either or. you also have the option to choose where you want the sound to come from, priority from the front highs or from the surround rears.
my question is this, well you guys know me by now my questions are always wordy, is the PLIIz legit or is it like the sony DCS, their weird version of surround sound that really is not surround sound.
second, i understand the usefulness of the heights, dolbys demo has a helicopter fly from front stage to back and then one from back to front. in that example it makes sense. but what about the guns and war going on to your side and behind you? does it just stop? this is where i start to get lost.
another example on he DD website is a rain scene, and shows all speakers active and making the sound envelope you, like its really raining on you.
well if you cant have front heights and surround rears at the active at the same time, how is that possible? maybe i am not understanding something but if by installing front heights and you negate your surround rears then your kinda wasting a set of speakers right?
orrrr, is is because its sony and they like to do weird things and my avr just cant handle true PLIIZ?
please help clear me up.
i need to know if i need to order another set of speakers!
this stuff is like a curse, never stops. oi!
but its fun
