Setting/What it does
S.DELAY (Sound Delay)
Some monitors have a slight delay when
showing video, so the soundtrack will be
slightly out of sync with the picture. By adding
a bit of delay, you can adjust the sound to
match the presentation of the video.
a
MIDNIGHT/LOUDNESS
The MIDNIGHT allows you to hear effective
surround sound of movies at low volumes.
The LOUDNESS is used to get good bass and
treble from music sources at low volumes.
S.RTV (Sound Retriever)
b
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.
d
DUAL MONO
Specifies how dual mono encoded Dolby
Digital soundtracks should be played.
F.PCM (Fixed PCM)
This is useful if you find there is a slight delay
before OFF recognizes the PCM signal on a
CD, for instance.
When ON is selected, noise may be output
during playback of non-PCM sources. Please
select another input signal if this is a problem.
DRC (Dynamic Range Control)
Adjusts the level of dynamic range for movie
soundtracks optimized for Dolby Digital, DTS,
Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD
and DTS-HD Master Audio (you may need to
use this feature when listening to surround
sound at low volumes).

degree. When OFF is selected, no sound is
