Advanced MCACC Auto Room Tuning featuring Auto Phase Control Plus

Advanced MCACC adjusts the sound according to the listening room and speakers, and also creates clearer sound by suppressing the standing waves that occur between walls or ceiling and floor. Measurement of up to nine positions can be saved for a wide listening area.

DTS:X

Can automatically adapt the audio to the existing channels and speaker system, no specific speaker layout is required.
