greater spatial accuracy, and improved dynamic range.
Note

* LFE = Low Frequency Effects. This channel delivers separate non-
directional bass signals to the subwoofer for more dynamic deep bass
sound effects.
Although only Dolby Digital soundtracks incorporate a separate low

Dolby 3 Stereo
Dolby 3 Stereo is available for systems that do not have surround
speakers. When in the Dolby 3 Stereo mode, the surround informa-
tion is redirected to the front left and right speakers. This mode is
designed for use with Dolby Surround program sources, but can also
improve sound field unity for programs that are not Dolby Surround
encoded. Dialog positioning and sound image definition, however,
may not be as accurate when used with programs that are not Dolby
Surround encoded.

and the receiver, you can enjoy multi-channel encoded DVD source
material in all its splendor. Since the source signals are digital and
each channel is input independently, the resulting sound quality,
sense of spaciousness, and dynamic range are superb.
