Audyssey Dynamic EQ®

Dynamic EQ solves the problem of deteriorating sound quality as volume 

is decreased by taking into account human perception and room acoustics. 

Audyssey Dynamic EQ® works in tandem with Audyssey MultEQ® XT to 

provide well-balanced sound for every listener at any volume level.

Audyssey Dynamic Volume®

Dynamic Volume solves the problem of large variations in volume level 

between television programs, commercials, and between the soft and 

loud passages of movies. Audyssey Dynamic EQ® is integrated into 

Dynamic Volume so that as the playback volume is adjusted automatically, 

the perceived bass response, tonal balance, surround impression, and 

dialog clarity remain the same.

Audyssey MultEQ® XT

MultEQ® XT is a room equalization solution that calibrates any audio 

system so that it can achieve optimum performance for every listener in 

a large listening area. Based on several room measurements, MultEQ® 

XT calculates an equalization solution that corrects for both time and 

frequency response problems in the listening area and also performs a 

fully automated surround system setup.

B

Bluetooth

Bluetooth is a short-distance wireless communication technology used for 

connecting handheld devices several meters apart. This enables notebook 

computers, PDA s, mobile phones, etc. to connect without a cable for 

transmitting audio and data.
