Guys I believe that is exactly what I said...third click from either dead right or left is straight up neutral...total of 5 clicks! ](*,)
In reality, it only matters what it sounds like to YOU!!!

If you're in the far right or left, you will only HEAR 2 clicks when you move to the center.

Third position, second "click"....

Thanks guys. Should be tackled this weekend.
Two Signature Cinema Grand Series II amplifiers (both are used in bi-amping my Infinity IRS Beta speakers)
Cherry 180's (use them off & on to power the mids/highs tower of IRS Beta speakers)
Sunfire Signature 600~Two amplifier (used on Thiel CS5i)
Carver TX-12 tuner
Own & working, but not in use right now - Sunfire Series II amplifier + two Carver M500t MKII amplifiers + Sunfire Classic Vacuum Tube Preamplifier preamp w/ phono & remote.

Hi,
I was reading your post and i was wondering if your not planning on using the phono board would you like to sell it? i can give you the CD input board that plugs in place of the phono board plus cash.

Please let me know,
Miguel...
