Center Distribution

The Center Distribution dial distributes part or all of the center signal to the left and right front speakers.

If you pan the center signal directly to the center speaker and set Center Distribution to 0 %, you may get a signal that is too discrete. In this case you can add part of the signal to the left and right front speakers to widen it. By raising the Center Distribution value you can distribute the signal to the 3 speakers. At 100 %, the center source is provided entirely by the phantom image created by the left and right speakers.

A line at the top of the surround field indicates the distance up to which a phantom signal is added:

If you position the source signal inside this range, the signal is sent to all 3 channels.
