Audyssey MultEQ-XT Automated Setup: This Audyssey MultEQ-XT technology
adapted by this receiver provides the best listening environment for multiple
listeners. The Auto MultEQ Setup feature of the SR5006 measures sound
characteristics of your speaker system and room where the receiver is used and
automatically optimizes settings. To do this, the Auto Setup feature measures a
test tone emitted by each channel in a maximum of 8 listening positions, using
the supplied microphone. The measurement results are analyzed using an original
algorithm and environmental settings are made to improve the sound
characteristics of your listening area.
Note: If you prefer, you can manually setup up your
speaker configurations. You can select the size and presence of each
speaker, the distance of each speaker from your normal listening position,
the level of each speaker in your system, and the crossover frequency
setting for each speaker.
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.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ works in tandem with Audyssey MultEQ to provide
well-balanced sound for every listener at any volume level.
Reference Level Offset: Audyssey Dynamic EQ is referenced to the
standard film mix level of 85dB SPL for -20 dBFS. Due, to the lack of standard
outside the film industry, the film reference level may not be appropriate when
listening to other material. Audyssey Dynamic EQ Adjust provides four offsets
from the film level reference (0dB, 5dB, 10dB, or 15dB) that can be selected when the
mix level of the content is not within the standard.
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 dialogue clarity remain the same. The amount
of compression can be set to an of the following three levels - Light, Medium,
Acoustic EQ: The A/V receiver features
5 Acoustic Equalizer
modes to choose from.
