Audyssey MultEQ for Simple Set-up and Room Calibration

Use Audyssey Dynamic EQ to deliver clear dialogue and wide-band response even at reduced volume levels, or Audyssey Dynamic Volume to avoid shocks and normalize volume when content switches between commercials, announcements and TV programs. The MultEQ Editor app (available for purchase) allows you to customize the sound more precisely to the specific problems in your room and tailor the sound to your personal preferences.
