SRS TruSurround HD
(standard sound mode only)
SRS TruSurround HD is a patented SRS technology that solves the
problem of playing 5.1 multichannel content over two speakers.
TruSurround delivers a compelling, virtual surround sound experience
through any two-speaker playback system, including internal
television speakers. It is fully compatible with all multichannel formats.
(digital channels only)
Digital-TV broadcasts are capable of simultaneous transmission of
many audio tracks (for example, simultaneous translations of the
program into foreign languages).
You can only select a language from among the ones being
Multi-Track Sound (MTS)
(analog channels only)
■ Mono: Choose for channels that are broadcasting in mono or if
you are having difficulty receiving a stereo signal.
■ Stereo: Choose for channels that are broadcasting in stereo.
■ SAP: Choose to listen to the Separate Audio Program, which is
usually a foreign-language translation.
Depending on the program being broadcast, you can listen to
Mono, Stereo or SAP.
Because each broadcasting station has its own signal conditions,
the volume may fluctuate each time channel is changed. This feature
lets you automatically adjust the volume of the desired channel by
lowering the sound output when the modulation signal is high or by
raising the sound output when the modulation signal is low.
The SPDIF (Sony Philips Digital InterFace) outputs an uncompressed
digital audio signal when you connect the digital audio jack on the
back of the TV to a digital audio in jack on a receiver or home theater.
■ Audio Format: You can select the Digital Audio output (SPDIF)
format. The available Digital Audio output (SPDIF) format may differ
depending on the input source.
By connecting the TV to a receiver or home theater with Dolby
Digital and 5.1ch speakers and selecting Dolby Digital, you
can maximize your interactive 3D sound experience.
■ Audio Delay: Lets you correct timing mismatches between the
audio track and the video when you are watching the TV and
listening to digital audio output from the TV through an external
device such as an AV receiver. When you select Audio Delay, a
slider appears. Use the left and right arrow buttons to adjust the
slider. Press ENTERE when done (0ms ~ 250ms).
■ Speaker Select (External Speaker / TV Speaker): If you are
listening to the sound track of a broadcast or movie through an
external receiver, you may hear a sound echo caused by the
difference in decoding speed between the TV's speakers and the
speakers attached to your audio receiver. If this occurs, set the TV
to External Speaker.
When you set Speaker Select to External Speaker, the
TV's speakers are turned off. You will hear sound through the
external speakers only. When you set Speaker Select to TV
Speaker both the TV's speakers and the external speakers
are on. You will hear sound through both.
When Speaker Select is set to External Speaker, the
settings will be limited.
If there is no video signal, both the TV's speakers and the
external speakers will be mute.
