Audyssey MultEQ Makes Accurate System Setup a Breeze
Using the supplied measuring microphone and stand, Audyssey MultEQ measures the speakers in your home theater, including the subwoofer, and then applies multiple high-precision DSP room-acoustic correction filters, providing the smoothest, most natural tonal balance regardless of the brand or model of speaker. Audyssey Dynamic EQ features advanced psycho-acoustic processing to deliver clear dialogue and wide-band response even at reduced volume levels, delivering cinema-level clarity whatever listening level you choose, while Audyssey Dynamic Volume avoids nasty shocks by normalizing volume when content switches to commercials or announcements.
