“MultEQ® XT32”, “Dynamic EQ”, “Reference Level Offset”, “Dynamic Volume”, “Audyssey LFC™” and “Containment Amount” settings are stored for each input source.

When the sound mode is in the “Direct” or “Pure Direct” mode, “MultEQ® XT32”, “Dynamic EQ”, “Dynamic Volume” and “Audyssey LFC™” settings cannot be configured.

When the sound mode is in “DTS Virtual:X” or sound mode that have “+Virtual:X” in the sound mode name, “Dynamic EQ”, “Dynamic Volume” and “Audyssey LFC™” settings cannot be configured.

This cannot be set when the input mode is set to “7.1CH IN”.

MultEQ® XT32

MultEQ® XT32 compensates for both time and frequency characteristics of the listening area based on Audyssey® Setup measurement results. Selection is done from three types of compensation curves. We recommend the “Reference” setting.


Selects the default calibrated setting with a slight roll off at high frequencies, which is optimized for movies.

L/R Bypass:

Selects the reference setting, but bypasses MultEQ® XT32 on the front left and right speakers.


Selects the calibrated setting which is optimized for small rooms where your listening position is closer to the speakers.


Do not use “MultEQ® XT32”.

When using headphones, “MultEQ® XT32” is automatically set to “Off”.

Dynamic EQ

Solves the problem of deteriorating sound quality as volume is decreased by taking into account human perception and room acoustics.

Works with MultEQ® XT32.


Use Dynamic EQ.


Do not use Dynamic EQ.

When the menu “Dynamic EQ” setting is “On”, it is not possible to do “Tone” adjustment. link

This can be set by pressing DYNAMIC EQ on the main unit.

Reference Level Offset

Audyssey Dynamic EQ® is referenced to the standard film mix level. It makes adjustments to maintain the reference response and surround envelopment when the volume is turned down from 0 dB. However, film reference level is not always used in music or other non-film content. Dynamic EQ Reference Level Offset provides three offsets from the film level reference (5 dB, 10 dB, and 15 dB) that can be selected when the mix level of the content is not within the standard. Recommended setting levels for content are shown below.

0 dB (Film Reference)

Optimized for content such as movies.

5 dB :

Select this setting for content that has a very wide dynamic range, such as classical music.

10 dB :

Select this setting for jazz or other music that has a wider dynamic range. This setting should also be selected for TV content as that is usually mixed at 10 dB below film reference.

15 dB :

Select this setting for pop/rock music or other program material that is mixed at very high listening levels and has a compressed dynamic range.

Setting is enabled when “Dynamic EQ” is “On”. link

Dynamic Volume

Solves the problem of large variations in volume level between TV, movies and other content (between quiet passages and loud passages, etc.) by automatically adjusting to the user’s preferred volume setting.

Works with MultEQ® XT32.


Most adjustment to softest and loudest sounds.


Medium adjustment to loudest and softest sound.


Least adjustment to loudest and softest sounds.


Do not use Dynamic Volume.

If “Dynamic Volume” is set to “Yes” in “Audyssey® Setup”, the setting is automatically changed to “Medium”. link

This can be set by pressing DYNAMIC VOLUME on the main unit.

Audyssey LFC™

Adjusts the low frequency band to prevent bass and vibration from being conveyed to neighboring rooms.

Works with MultEQ® XT32.


Use “Audyssey LFC™”.


Do not use “Audyssey LFC™”.

Containment Amount

Adjusts the amount of low frequency containment. Use higher settings if you have close neighbors.

1 – 7 (Default : 4)

This can be set when “Audyssey LFC™” in the menu is set to “On”.
