Using the sound field control

The SFC function creates the sensation of a
live performance.
!The acoustics of different performance en-
vironments are not the same and depend
on the extent and contour of space through
which sound waves move and on how
sounds bounce off the stage, walls, floors
and ceilings. At a live performance you
hear music in three stages: direct sound,
early reflections, and late reflections, or re-
verberations. Those factors are programed
into the SFC circuitry to recreate the acous-
tics of various performance settings.

2 Press EQ to select the desired SFC
Press EQ repeatedly to switch between the fol-
lowing mode:
MUSICAL (musical)DRAMA (drama)
ACTION (action)JAZZ (jazz)HALL (hall)
CLUB (club)OFF (off)
If the source is a 2-channel LPCM audio or a 2-
channel Dolby Digital audio and you select SFC
effects that are most applicable for 5.1-channel
audio (i.e., MUSICAL,DRAMA or ACTION), we
recommend turning Dolby Pro Logic II on. On the
other hand, when selecting SFC effects that are
intended for use with 2-channel audio (i.e., JAZZ,
HALL or CLUB), we recommend turning Dolby
Pro Logic II off.

Using the position selector

One way to assure a more natural sound is to
accurately position the stereo image, putting
you right in the center of the sound field. The
position selector function lets you automati-
cally adjust the speaker output levels and in-
serts a delay time to match the number and
position of occupied seats. When used in con-
junction with the SFC, the feature will make
the sound image more natural and offer a pa-
noramic sound that envelops you.
