    Somewhere Back In The Long Ago
    I have a 1GW soundbar, which is optically connected to my Toshiba 46" 3D TV in the bedroom.

    Apart from being able to set each speakers volume separately, I have the following pre-sets:

    1) Not named, but a generic " centre " setting which I understand

    2) Also unnamed, but throws the sound wider..also understood.

    3) similar

    4) full wide

    5) This one I don't get...It's called Matrix in the manual...sometimes when set in 5.1 surround, it sounds great. other sources DVD / HDD recorder etc. It sounds like somebody shouting in a tunnel...Any ideas?
