SURROUND feature. With this, the receiver automatically
detects what kind of source you're playing and selects
multichannel or stereo playback as necessary.
Press

shows briefly in the display (it will then show the decoding
or playback format). Check the digital format indicators in
the display to see how the source is being processed.
Note
Stereo surround (matrix) formats are decoded accordingly
using NEO:6 CINEMA or DOLBY PLIIx MOVIE (see
Listening in surround sound below
decoding formats).

Listening in surround sound

Using this receiver, you can listen to any source in surround
sound. However, the options available will depend on your
speaker setup and the type of source you're listening to.
If the source is Dolby Digital, DTS, or Dolby Surround
encoded, the proper decoding format will automatically be
selected and shows in the display.
When you select STEREO ALC (Auto Level Control stereo
mode), this unit equalizes playback sound levels if each sound
level varies with the music source recorded in a portable
TUNE
audio player.
SOUND
When you select STEREO, you will hear the source through
RETRIEVER
just the front left and right speakers (and possibly your
subwoofer depending on your speaker settings). Dolby Digital
and DTS multichannel sources are downmixed to stereo.
The following modes provide basic surround sound for stereo
and multichannel sources.
