DIGITAL SOUND FIELD PROCESSING (DSP)
Features of DSP Programs
The following list gives you a brief description of the sound fields produced by each of the DSP programs. Keep in
mind that most of these are precise digital recreations of actual acoustic environments.

Europe Hall B
CONCERT HALL 2
U.S.A. Hall C
