M-DAX

Compressed audio formats such as MP3, WMA (Windows Media Audio) 

and MPEG-4 AAC reduce the amount of data by eliminating signal 

components that are hard for the human ear to hear. The “M-DAX” 

function generates the signals eliminated upon compression, restoring the 

sound to conditions near those of the original sound before compression. 

It also restores the original bass characteristics for a rich and expanded 

tonal range.

 

2 Mode

Set the mode for “M-DAX”.
High :  Optimized mode for compressed sources with very weak highs 

(64 kbps and under).

Medium :  Apply suitable bass and treble boost for all compressed 

sources (96 kbps and under).

Low :  Optimized mode for compressed sources with normal highs (96 

kbps and over).

Off (Default) :  Do not use “M-DAX”.
