At the other end of the room there was an
and a pair of
mono blocks playing the
book shelf speakers. Because of the nature of the room. the "B" speakers had an image that was hard to understand and it was shifted off to one side. With the ARC enabled, the image shifted into a natural center based presentation with a wide stage. It was quite dramatic as it was demonstrated!
