Front-Height speakers help create a semi-spherical sound field for an immersive sound field beyond the horizontal plane near the ground. Now it’s possible to hear sounds you should hear overhead (e.g. planes flying by, thunder and lightning, raindrops, etc.) actually over your head. The speakers also help create a multi-dimensional ambient field for an even more realistic background.
When setting up loudspeakers as a rule of thumb it's always beneficial to aim them at the "sweet spot" listening position. Different loudspeaker designs have different directionality characteristics or "polars". Some are very forgiving, meaning they sound similar both on-axis and of- axis, some loudspeakers are very directional. The only exception to this rule occurs when you get into di-pole type speakers.
The 11.1 configuration consists of the regular 7.1 DTS configuration (L, C, R, LFE, Lss, Rss, Lsr, Rsr), plus two “Front-Height” speakers (Lh, Rh) and two “Wide” speakers (Lw, Rw).
Not at this time. But we are actively working on adapting 11.1 with our content/hardware partners.
DTS 2.0 + Digital Out means the device has the capability to decode the DTS stream, then downmix and output 2ch audio to be played back via stereo speakers. Digital Out means the device can also output the DTS bitstream via Digital outputs (S/PDIF or HDMI) to an AV receiver to decode DTS audio.
Unfortunately, Bose systems are not DTS compatible. If you'd like to experience DTS sound, you could upgrade your receiver/speaker system to a DTS-capable system.
This is probaly due to "speaker remapping". Basically, if the AVR provides a 7.1 speaker output and has a DTS-HD decoder, the decoder itself converts the input audio for 7.1 output as necessary. (This is NOT done by Neo:6 or Dolby PLIIz.)
