Using the Sound Retriever

When audio data is removed during the compression
process, sound quality often suffers from an uneven sound
image. The Sound Retriever feature employs new DSP
technology that helps bring CD quality sound back to
compressed 2-channel audio by restoring sound pressure
and smoothing jagged artifacts left over after compression.
Press

Retriever) ON or OFF.
Note
The Sound Retriever is only applicable to 2-channel
sources.

Equalization set in
