Change to suit the speakers you have connected.
LARGE: For speakers that can reproduce a full sound range,
particularly the bass range below 100 Hz.
SMALL: For speakers that cannot adequately reproduce the bass
range. This setting is sufficient for most speakers if you are
using a subwoofer.
NONE: For speakers you haven’t connected (center or surround).
The factory settings are:

Center and surround: SMALL
For the subwoofer, select YES if you have connected one (factory
setting), or NO if you have not.

Enter the distance of the speakers from the seating position so that
the sound from all the speakers (except for the subwoofer) reaches

This setting allows you to change the cut-off for bass output from
the front speakers. If you set the front speakers to “SMALL”, the
filter is set to 100 Hz. Raise the cut-off if the bass from the front
speakers is unsatisfactory so that this bass is output through the
subwoofer.
You can raise the cut-off from 100 Hz to either 150 Hz or 200 Hz.

SOUND MODE
DSP sound modes
DIGITAL INPUT
The digital sound processor (DSP) in this unit can decode Dolby
Digital and DTS digital signals. It automatically determines the type
of signal, PCM, Dolby Digital, or DTS, and processes it accordingly.
The DSP can add surround-like effects to stereo sources (analogue
or PCM signals).
Choose from the STEREO, SURROUND, or SFC modes.
The DSP may interfere with radio reception. You can turn it off if this
occurs (\ page 22).
Output is in stereo when you turn the DSP off so sound is only
heard through the front speakers.
Note
A
¡PCM with a sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz is the digital signal
format normally found on CDs. Some DVDs also use this format
but often with a higher sampling rate.
¡This unit cannot process other digital signal formats, such as
PCM signals with sampling frequencies of 96 kHz and 192 kHz
and MPEG.
¡SA-DX750 cannot process DTS signals.
