Dynamic range setting
In many listening situations, it is not recommended to set
the volume too high, and thus the loudest sound must
be compressed downwards in level. Likewise, the very
quiet sounds would be inaudible and must be brought
upwards in level to be heard. Dolby Digital satisfies these
needs through the dynamic range controlling.
Selects the dynamic range compression to fit the indi-
vidual listening situation. The options are Softer, Soft
• Softer: Audio with highly compressed dynamic range.
• Soft: Audio with partially compressed dynamic range.
• OFF: Audio without compressed dynamic range.
Dynamic range is only applicable on Dolby
