Can anyone shed any light on what the VIRTUAL Speaker function does in the SURROUND setting on the HW-Q80R?
Is it simply a case that any anything in stereo is effectively upmixed to also output to additional speakers?
I don't have additional rear speakers connected and simply the bar itself.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I searched for more explanation on this function myself and I found that 'Virtual speaker' creates 'virtual surround' so simulate rear speakers for people who don't have rears. Still I think it is strange that this function is available on my HW Q90R with rears..
This is why I was a little confused in the first place as I thought it would be similating in some way surround content to the other channels / speakers (setups with no rear speakers)
If Surround Speakers are connected, select REAR LEVEL and then use the Up/Down
buttons to adjust the volume within a -6 to +6 range. The VIRTUAL Speaker function
can be turned ON/OFF by using the Up/Down buttons.
So, if this does nothing with the surround speakers (as noted by @Leapfrog).
Yeah, would be good to understand what this does...
