As an average listener, using stereo would be a lot better, since it creates width, and it sounds better overall.

Which audio format is best for surround sound?

5.1 is the most commonly used layout in home theatres. It uses five full bandwidth channels and one low-frequency effects channel (the “point one”). Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II, DTS, SDDS, and THX are all common 5.1 systems. 5.1 is also the standard surround sound audio component of digital broadcast and music.

Does pure direct use subwoofer?

Registered. There is no processing in “pure audio” mode, that includes bass management, so no sub. No way around it. If your mains are set to small, you should get sub output in both stereo, and straight modes.

What is direct on Yamaha?

Pure Direct mode is a feature offered by many Yamaha receivers. When engaged, it feeds sound directly to the amplifier and bypasses any DSP processing that might otherwise color the signal, ensuring the best possible high-fidelity sound from all audio sources – even USB and HDMI inputs.

What does ‘multi channel stereo’ mean on an AV receiver?

What is the difference between stereo and direct bass?

“Stereo” goes through A/D, Bass Management, D/A, then on to the amps (or preouts). “Direct” goes right to the amps (or preouts) without any signal manipulation. The cool thing about Direct is that a second “copy” of the signal IS processed and bass content is extracted from it and sent to the sub.

What is the difference between stereo and multi ch stereo?

Stereo: downmixes everything to your front left and right speakers (plus subwoofer) DTS-HD + Dolby Surround: as with Neural:X, this will upscale to fit your speaker layout Multi Ch Stereo: plays a stereo mix across your complete speaker system

Is there a difference between direct mode and stereo mode?

There is a pretty detectable difference, but I thought that lots of that difference came from the signal processing that was still applied in stereo mode and gone in direct. After all the time spent fine tuning w/ the sound meter and such, it’s sometimes amazing how much separation seems to come out of direct mode.
