Before Operation (Continued)


This control extends the front stereo image to include
the surround speakers for an exciting “wraparound”
effect with side-wall imaging. It is particularly effective
for recordings which have strong left- or right-channel
elements in the mix, as these are detected and accen-
tuated by the Panorama process.

C WIDT (Center Width)

This control allo

ws center-channel sounds to be posi-

tioned between the center speaker and the left/right
speakers over a range of eight steps. Step “3” uses a
combination of all three front speakers to give the best
vocal imaging and most seamless soundstage presen-
tation, and is recommended for most recordings. Step
“0” places all center sound in the center speaker. Step
“7” places all center sound equall

y in the left/right

speakers, just as in conventional stereo.


This control allows the user to gradually adjust the
sound field either towards the front or the rear. This can
be useful to help achieve the desired balance from all
the speakers with certain recordings that may contain
either too much or too little spatial effect. Step “0” is the
recommended setting, which has no effect on the
sound. Steps 1, 2, and 3 gradually move the sound for-
ward, and steps –1, –2, and –3 move the sound
towards the surrounds.

the setting changes in the following order.

XTS- 1: When playing the movie with the weak bass

sound relatively to the general music, it
enforces the sense of sound at woofer
for you to satisfy with.

XTS- 2: In the mode of 2 CH BYPASS, It creates the

high display effect by playing the sound
source via the rear speakers same as the
front speakers.

XTS- 3: You can operate both XTS- 1 and XTS- 2

simultaneously and it can complement the
relative degrading of the sound pitch of the
woofer at the XTS- 2 mode.


The XTS- 2 mode is temporarily disabled when changing
from 2.1 CH to 5.1 CH and it is enabled when changing it to
2.1 CH.
