Room Simulation (Model VR 400 Only)
One of five acoustic settings can be chosen,
simulating different listening environments
and providing a variety of sound qualities:
TALK:
This mode limits the frequency response
and delays audio from the rear speakers
compared to the front speakers. This effect
is very useful on AM talk radio because it
filters much of the noise and moves the audio
image forward.
LIVE:
Simulates the acoustics of live musical
performance in a larger room.
AUDITORIUM:
The same effect as LIVE, but more
pronounced, giving the feeling of an even
larger room.
ARENA:
Creates the effect of being in a large arena.
DRIVER L or DRIVER R:
The sound from the driver side front speaker
is delayed with respect to the passenger side
front speaker, creating the effect of shifting
or moving the audio image (for left hand and
right hand drive vehicles).
