Dolby Digital EX
Dolby Digital EX is an extension of Dolby Digital technology, Dolby
Digital EX creates six full-bandwidth output channels from 6.1-chan-
nel sources. This is done using a matrix decoder that derives three
surround channels from the two in the original recording.
This is achieved by using three different surround signals, Left
Surround, Right Surround, and Back Surround, each driving its own
array of speakers. Think of it as adding a center channel for the rear
speakers, which give more diffuse and natural surround effect, even
if you wanted the ability to completely encircle the audience with
sound, positioning sound effects exactly where they would be heard
in real life.
Note
For best results, Dolby Digital EX should be used with movie
soundtracks recorded with Dolby Digital Surround EX which contain
a digital flag that will automatically activate this feature. However, for
titles released prior to late 2001, this feature has to be activated
manually.
This model lets you enjoy Dolby Digital (and Dolby Surround) program
sources, even if you connect only the Front Speakers. However, in
order to enjoy the benefit of true 6.1 channel Dolby Digital Surround
EX sound, KENWOOD recommends that you connect a full set of
speakers.

Dolby PRO LOGIC II x/ Dolby PRO LOGIC II
Dolby Pro Logic IIx was designed specifically to provide a new sense
of spatiality, directionality and articulation of sounds from Dolby
Surround encoded sources.
This is achieved with an intelligent, built-in feedback logic design, a matrix
surround decoding and the decoding of stereo, full bandwidth surround
outputs. The PRO LOGIC IIx modes programmed into this receiver are
"MOVIE", "MUSIC" and "GAME". The "MOVIE" mode of the PRO LOGIC IIx
has preset characteristics to produce a calibrated, high-level surround
sound playback while the "MUSIC" mode has user-adjustable character-
istics to offer the three optional controls, like "Dimension", "Center Width"
and "Panorama" modes to allow optimization of the soundfields as
desired. The "Dimension" control allows the user to gradually adjust the
soundfield either towards the front or towards the rear; the "Center
Width" control allows various adjustment of the left-center-right speak-
ers' balance; the "Panorama" mode extends the front stereo image to
include the surround speakers for an exciting "wraparound" effect with
side wall imaging. The "GAME" mode is designed for playing video
games and enhances the powerful feeling of sound.
