Audyssey Platinum Built-in
The most advanced Audyssey MultEQ XT32 (Pro ready) room correction suite adds to the most accurate calibration of the speakers to guarantee that every seat in the room is a ‘sweet spot’ for audio. Audyssey LFC reduces the transmission of low frequency sound through walls to keep a good relation with neighbours, while Audyssey Sub EQ HT cares for perfect integration of two subwoofers in the home theatre setup. Audyssey Dynamic Volume provides real-time volume monitoring and adjustment, to prevent those annoying jumps in volume caused by too loud commercials. It's also great for late night listening so you can hear the audio soundtrack clearly at lower volume levels. Audyssey Dynamic EQ provides precision tonal balance tailoring, so you can enjoy full range sound at any volume level. Audyssey DSX (Dynamic Surround Expansion) lets you add a pair of front wide or front height speakers to your 5.1 speaker system to expand the front soundstage that turns your room into a giant home theater space.
Dual Subwoofer Outputs
With a single subwoofer, room acoustics and the subwoofer's location in the room may not deliver optimum deep bass response. Instead, because of room resonances, deep bass quality may be uneven due to room interaction. With dual subwoofer outputs you can connect two subs and place them in different parts of the room, and enjoy smoother and more accurate deep bass response as a result.
