How are the new surrounds working out?

I boosted the levels on them compared to the YPAO settings. Most of the time if they are doing much I can't really hear it. Which might be a good thing. On occasion, however, a movie does something that gets enough coming out of them that I notice, and once I even wondered what it was for a moment (e.g. did something happen in the kitchen?). That's definitely a good thing.

It's strange, but I'm so conditioned to pointing the speakers straight I'm having a hard time in my mind just entertaining the idea of turning them. That will also change the bass port (since it will now bounce off the back wall at an angle). I know that's mostly for air movement, but I believe it also does add some to the sound.
