Audyssey Room Correction

Every listening room has its own characteristics and acoustical problems. That's why Denon equipped the AVR-S740H with the advanced Audyssey MultEQ automatic room acoustic correction system. Via the supplied measuring microphone and mic stand, Audyssey MultEQ measures all the speakers in your home theater during setup, including the subwoofer, and then generates multiple high precision DSP room acoustic correction filters, which together provide smoothest and most natural tonal balance, regardless of the brand or model of the various speakers. Audyssey Dynamic Volume smooths out annoying jumps in volume (such as TV commercials), letting you listen at lower levels and still enjoy clear dialogue, music, and sound effects. Audyssey Dynamic EQ provides precision tonal tailoring for full range clarity at any listening level. 350
