The Speaker Setting of SACD for Multi-Channel Audio
We recommend you to use ITU (International Telecommunication Union) speaker setting because SACD multi-channel discs are
recorded and mixed down to hear the best quality sound when this setting are used.
The basic settings are 3 speakers for front and 2 for back since multi-channel discs have basically 5 channels (3 to 6 channels
possible). There are some discs which has the 6
channel for sub-woofer. The number of channels recorded is shown on the disc.
When you use different sizes of speakers, please adjust the volume balances in your amplifier/surround receiver. You can also use
the 5.1 channel surround setting for DVD but surround sound may present differently form the best SACD multi-channel sound
The 2-front, 1-center, and 2-surround speakers should be set on the circle from the listening point as shown above. The location
of the sub-woofer in the picture is just to you a patter of settings. Sub-woofer can be located any place in your room. (See the
users manual of your sub-woofer.)
