Synchronised Sound with Phase Control

As an innovative solution for the phase lag between the subwoofer and the main channel speakers caused by the bass management filter, Phase Control compensates the delayed bass to improve sound synchronisation.

Dolby Atmos and DTS:X

Dolby Atmos and DTS:X formats liberatesounds from specific speakers, allowingthem to move from speaker to speaker,and even overhead. The next-generation audiocodecs leverage object-based audio to enablenew immersive and interactive audio performance.Whether it is movies, music, or games, you can enjoy a totally newexperience that unleashes overwhelming realism in your home cinema.

Reflex Optimizer

High directivity sound reflects off the ceiling,while low directivity sound directly reachesthe ears. This difference causes a phase shift,making the sound feel uncomfortable.
