Surround sound

There are various modes you can use to add surround effects or play stereo through more than just the normal two speakers.

Note

Dolby Pro Logic

ΙΙx

This feature adds surround effects to stereo sources.

It can also expand 5.1-channel Dolby Digital and DTS so that you can hear them through 7.1 

channels (when you have connected 2 surround back speakers) or 6.1 channels (when you 

have connected 1 surround back speaker).

Use this mode when playing Dolby Digital Surround EX to make effective use of the 

surround back channel.

Press 

 to select one of the following modes.

 

 

 

(Movie)

Use this mode when playing movie software, especially if it is recorded in 

Dolby Surround.

If you have connected two surround back speakers, their output will be in 

stereo.

This is the factory setting.

(Music)

This mode is effective on music sources.

(Dolby Digital EX)

Use this mode when playing movie software, especially if it is recorded in 

Dolby Digital EX format.

It is effective on multi-channel sources.

If you have connected two surround back speakers, output from them will 

be monaural.

If you have connected one surround back speaker, the “

PL

ΙΙx” 

indicator goes out and either “

DIGITAL EX” or “

EX” lights instead.

(Game)

Enjoy gaming with more impact.

This mode is effective on stereo sources.

You cannot use this mode unless you have connected both surround 

speakers and surround back speakers (

 pages 13 and 14 to 17). Make 

sure you have also set these speakers as present in “Speaker and size 

settings” (

 page 27).

To cancel, press  OFF
