or Narrow (if listening angle is 20-degrees).
Audyssey 2EQ Automatic Speaker Setup: With the supplied
speaker setup microphone, Audyssey 2EQ can measure the number of speakers
connected, their sizes, crossover frequencies and distances front he listening
position and calculate the optimal speaker setting for you automatically. The
supplied microphone includes an attached 19.5' cable that plugs into the Setup
Mic input on front of the receiver. There is a threaded insert on the bottom of
the microphone so it can be mounted on a tripod for accurate listening position
placement. Three listening position measurements are taken, one primary and two
secondary, to optimize the surround effect for a broad area. You can also setup
your speaker system manually using the receiver.
- Subwoofer: Yes or No for subwoofer connection.
- Crossover: Set the crossover point for each set of
speakers (front, center, surround, surround back/front high) and the
subwoofer individually. The speaker crossovers can bet set to full
bandwidth, 40 Hz, 50 Hz, 60 Hz, 70 Hz, 80 Hz, 90 Hz, 100 Hz, 120 Hz, 150 Hz,

- Speaker Levels: The output level of each speaker is
adjustable +/-12dB; -15dB to +12dB for the subwoofer.
Audyssey 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 best possible frequency response and surround levels
moment-by-moment as volume is changed. The result is bass response, tonal
balance and surround impression that remain constant despite changes in volume.
Audyssey 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 2EQ to
provide well-balanced sound for every listener at any volume level.
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. Dynamic Volume looks at the preferred volume setting by t he 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 in 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.
Bass And Treble: You can independently adjust the Bass (50Hz)
and Treble (20kHz) of the HT-RC360 from -10 to +10 dB.
Double Bass: This setting boosts the bass output by feeding
bass sound from the front left, right, and center channels to the subwoofer.
CinemaFilter: Using the CinemaFilter you soften overly
bright movie soundtracks. Movie soundtracks are typically mixed for a large
theater (relative to your home theater) with lots of soft seats and thick
curtains on the walls. Home theater settings often lack these high frequency
absorbing wall treatments, making the soundtrack sound too bright. CinemaFilter
accounts for this and for many movies sounds more natural at home.
Music Optimizer: The Music Optimizer function enhances the sound
quality of compressed music files. The Music Optimizer function only works with PCM
digital audio input signals with a sampling rate below 48kHz and analog input signals.
Late Night Feature: The Late Night feature limits the dynamic
range of Dolby Digital recordings. Limiting the dynamic range makes it easier to
find a volume that ensures the quiet sounds are not too quiet and the loud sounds
are not too loud for night time listening. This allows you to comfortably listen
to without the need to constantly adjust the volume to keep from waking family/neighbors.
The choices are: Off, Low, and High.
Note: This feature only works
with Dolby Digital Encoded software and the depth
of the feature will vary based on the individual
Bi-Amping Front Speakers: The Surround-Back/Front-High
speaker terminals can be reassigned and used along with the Front terminals to
