• Some types of the Dolby Digital software do not support "MIN" for the dynamic range.
If "MIN" is selected to play this type of software, the volume may be extremely
lowered. If this problem occurs, select "MAX" or "STD".
Ideally, the center speaker and the rear center speaker should be the same distance from
the main listening position as the left and right main speakers. However, in most home
situations, the center speaker or the rear center speaker is placed in line with the main
speakers or the rear speakers. By delaying the sound from the center speaker and the rear
center speaker, the apparent distance from the center speaker and the rear center speaker
to the main listening position can be adjusted to make it seem the same as the distance
between the left and right main speaker, and the left and right rear speakers to the listening
position. Adjusting the delay time for the center speaker is especially important for giving
depth to the dialogue.
