I've been living with pc speakers for too long until last week when my PSB Image set and HSU VTF2 sw arrived. With my Yamaha RXV995 should I output LFE to subwoofer only or both for the best HT result? My untrained ears still can't decide. Thanks in advance....

I'm not sure if you are asking about sending the LFE to both speakers and a sub or a pair of subs. I would think your best bet with the LFE channel is to send it only to your powered sub. The LFE sound is generally too powerful for anything but **maybe towers** and a powered sub. (FWIW I doubt you would do anthing but eventually add damage to towers with LFE signal) I would only run it to a powered sub.

Most receivers will not send the LFE to both main speakers and a subwoofer.

Are you sure that yours does?

If you have a sub, the LFE should go there, and only there.
