Surround Parameter

You can adjust the surround audio sound field effects to match your preferences.

The items (parameters) that can be adjusted depend on the signal being input and the currently set sound mode. For details on the adjustable parameters, see Sound modes and surround parameterslink.

Some setting items cannot be set while playback is stopped. Make the settings during playback.

“Surround Parameter” settings are stored for each sound mode.

Cinema EQ

Gently softens the upper treble range of movie soundtracks to reduce possible harshness and improve clarity.


“Cinema EQ” is used.


“Cinema EQ” is not used.

Loudness Management

This sets whether to output as specified in “Dynamic Compression” or output directly without compressing the dynamic range of audio recorded in the disc.


Outputs are given based on enabling the settings made in “Dynamic Compression” and Dialogue normalization function.


“Dynamic Compression” settings and Dialogue normalization are disabled, and the signals on the disc are output as is.

“Loudness Management” can be set when Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Atmos signal is input.

Dynamic Compression

Compress dynamic range (difference between loud and soft sounds).


Automatic dynamic range compression on/off control according to source.

Low / Medium / High:

These set the compression level.


Dynamic range compression is always off.

“Dynamic Compression” can be set when Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos or DTS signal is input.

The default setting is “Off”. When the input signal is the Dolby TrueHD or Dolby Atmos source, the default setting is “Auto”.

“Auto” cannot be set when inputting a DTS signal.

Dialog Control

Adjust the volume of dialog in movies, vocals in music, etc. so these can be heard more easily.

0 – 6 (Default : 0)

This can be set when a DTS:X signal that is compatible with the Dialog Control function is input.

Low Frequency Effects

Adjust the low frequency effects level (LFE).

When “Input Mode” is set other than to “7.1CH IN”

-10 dB – 0 dB (Default: 0 dB)

When “Input Mode” is set to “7.1CH IN”

0 dB / +5 dB / +10 dB / +15 dB (Default: +10 dB)

For proper playback of the different sources, we recommend setting to the values below.

Dolby Digital sources: 0 dB

DTS movie sources: 0 dB

DTS music sources: -10 dB

Center Spread

Center Spread expands the center channel signal to left and right front speakers to create a wider frontal audio image for the listener. It is optimized and designed primary for playback of stereo music content.


Use “Center Spread”.


Do not use “Center Spread”.

You can set this when sound mode is “Dolby Surround”.

DTS Neural:X

DTS Neural:X Expands the non-object based audio signals and optimizes them for your speaker configuration.


Use “DTS Neural:X”.


Do not use “DTS Neural:X”.

You can set this when sound mode is “DTS:X” or “DTS:X MSTR”.


Sets the audio mode for IMAX playback.


Automatically enables the IMAX mode when IMAX content is detected.


Enables IMAX settings for IMAX streaming content when automatic detection is not possible.


Disables the IMAX mode.

Auro-Matic 3D Preset

Selects the Auro-Matic 3D Preset for fine tuning the Auro-3D experience to specific audio material.


“Small” is ideal for pop and chamber music.


“Medium” is best used on jazz music or typical movies and TV shows.


“Large” is ideal for recordings that were recorded in large spaces (e.g. orchestral recording).


“Movie” is ideal for experiencing a large-cinema effect for watching movies (e.g. action movies with big explosions).


“Speech” is ideal for recordings which are mostly dialog (e.g. news broadcast), and that have virtually no inherent spatial information.

You can set this when the sound mode is set to Auro-3D.

This cannot be set if the input signal contains Auro-3D signals containing a Height channel.

Auro-Matic 3D Strength

Changes the level of the up-mixed channels in relation to the original input signal.
The value ranges from 1 (no up-mixing) to 16 (Maximum level, providing maximum effect).

1 - 16 (Default:10)

You can set this when the sound mode is set to Auro-3D.

This cannot be set if the input signal contains Auro-3D signals containing a Height channel.

Auro-3D Mode

Select how to output sound to all speakers when Auro-3D decoding is active.

Channel Expansion

Incoming Auro-3D content is expanded to additional speakers. All speakers configured for Auro-3D will output sound.


Incoming Auro-3D content is sent directly to each corresponding channel. No content is sent to additional speakers.

You can set this when the input signal contains Auro-3D signal and sound mode is set to Auro-3D.

Speaker Select
