Audyssey Dynamic EQ™ solves the problem of deteriorating sound

Audyssey Dynamic Volume™ solves the problem of large variations

Audyssey Dynamic EQ is integrated into Dynamic Volume so that as

About Dynamic EQ
Audyssey Dynamic EQ™ solves the problem of deteriorating sound
quality as volume is decreased by taking into account human
perception and room acoustics. Dynamic EQ selects the correct
frequency response and surround levels moment-by-moment at
any user-selected volume setting. The result is bass response, tonal
balance, and surround impression that remain constant despite
changes in volume. Dynamic EQ combines information from
incoming source levels with actual output sound levels in the room,
a prerequisite for delivering a loudness correction solution. Audyssey
Dynamic EQ works in tandem with Audyssey MultEQ XT to provide
well-balanced sound for every listener at any volume level.
About Dynamic Volume
Audyssey Dynamic Volume™ solves the problem of large variations
in volume level between television programs, commercials, and
between the soft and loud passages of movies.
Dynamic Volume looks at the preferred volume setting by the user and
then monitors how the volume of program material is being perceived
by listeners in real time to decide whether an adjustment is needed.
Whenever necessary, Dynamic Volume makes the necessary rapid
or gradual adjustments to maintain the desired playback volume
level while optimizing the dynamic range. Audyssey Dynamic EQ is
integrated into Dynamic Volume so that as the playback volume is
adjusted automatically, the perceived bass response, tonal balance,
surround impression, and dialog clarity remain the same whether
watching movies, flipping between television channels, or changing
from stereo to surround sound content.

Audyssey
Audyssey Dynamic Volume™
Audyssey Dynamic Volume solves the problem of large variations in volume level between television
programs, commercials, and between the soft and loud passages of movies.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ is integrated into Dynamic Volume so that as the playback volume is adjusted
automatically, the perceived bass response, tonal balance, surround impression, and dialog clarity remain
the same.
Countermeasure
is •Set “Manual Setup” – “HDMI
Setup” – “HDMI Control” –
“Control” to “OFF”.
When you only want to operate
the power on/off each device, set
“Power Off Control” to “OFF”.

Troubleshooting
Audyssey Dynamic EQ solves the problem of deteriorating sound quality as volume is decreased by
taking into account human perception and room acoustics. Audyssey Dynamic EQ works in tandem with
Audyssey MultEQ XT to provide well-balanced sound for every listener at any volume level.

Playback
Audyssey MultEQ XT is a room equalization solution that calibrates any audio system so that it can achieve
optimum performance for every listener in a large listening area. Based on several room measurements,
MultEQ XT calculates an equalization solution that corrects for both time and frequency response problems
in the listening area and also performs a fully automated surround system setup.
If a problem should arise, first check the following:
1. Are the connections correct?
2. Is the set being operated as described in the owner’s manual?
3. Are the other components operating properly?
If this unit does not operate properly, check the items listed in the table below. Should the problem persist,
there may be a malfunction.
In this case, disconnect the power immediately and contact your store of purchase.
