Ultimate Audio Experience
Yamaha’s incredible CINEMA DSP HD3 literally takes the
surround sound experience to new heights, using two
CINEMA DSP engines to produce higher and wider sound
fields. YPAO 3D provides automatic sound parameter
optimization that measures the direction of the front,
surround and presence speakers, as well as the height of the
presence speakers and applies appropriate compensation.
This maximizes the 3D
sound field
of the CINEMA
