so what u wanna say is in the JVC, no matter right/left what u select it remains the same as the distance interchanges??? the sound remains centered be it right or left aligned, that means if I set it to right and sit on the right side the stage will be centered and when I sit to the left and change it to left the sound will be centered again, is that what u trying to tell ??? then what is the right/left/all TA for my friend??? even the P80 takes the position of the mic as reference so u can place it towards ur right/left ear or straight on the forehead and what happens is when I put it right and sit on the right the sound comes to my face then when I move it to all it gets centered(centre of the dash) and then to left the sound stages shifts to the left. so I suppose thats how the TA works be it manual or auto.
