AIR SURROUND XTREME
AIR SURROUND XTREME employs a virtual 7.1 channel technology that generates surround and surround back sound images without using dedicated surround speakers. The result is accurate sound directionality while maintaining an immersive surround sound envelopment. Hear clear dialogue from the front while distinctly separate surround effects move smoothly throughout the entire sound field.
The most popular 5.1-channel home theater sound system. An improvement over Dolby Pro Logic offering: 1) Full frequency response in all channels (3 Hz — 20 kHz), 2) discrete surround channels, and 3) a separate track for bass, only, called the Low-Frequency Effects channel.
DTS Digital Surround™
DTS Digital Surround was developed to replace the analog soundtracks of movies with a multichannel digital sound track. This system produces practically distortion-free 6-channel sound (front left and right, center, surround left and right and subwoofer low frequency effect channels for a total of 5.1-channels).
Bluetooth is a technology for wireless communication between devices within an area of about 33' employing the 2.4 GHz frequency band, a band which can be used without a license.
Qualcomm aptX audio coding delivers CD-quality wirelessly over Bluetooth, enabling users to lose the wires without compromising on audio quality. With the aptX audio codec source material is transparently delivered over the Bluetooth link, whether it is stored uncompressed or in an alternative compression (MP3, AAC, FLAC) format. Low audio coding delay minimizes latency and lip-sync issues.
UniVolume is a Yamaha technology that maintains a consistent volume level between different channels, programs, commercials and input sources. For instance, when watching TV while using UniVolume, the volume of commercials will not be louder than the program being viewed. The same is true when switching sources to watch a DVD or Blu-ray Disc™ movie or to listen to music on a CD. This is particularly helpful for late night watching and listening when spikes in volume can disturb others in the house.
Advanced Yamaha Active Servo Technology (Advanced YST) is a unique system in which the speaker and amplifier work together to cancel out impedance so the speaker unit has a perfectly linear motion. Advanced YST helps to ensure the highest levels of sound pressure and overall performance.
