displays "Movie" as the sound mode). The HARMAN Display Surround
setting will produce a complete surround-sound experience for anyone
sitting in front of and several feet away from the soundbar. Although it is
particularly effective when watching movies, you can also try the HARMAN
Display Surround setting for music.
