    Using the DENON original surround modes

    The AVR-1707 is equipped with a high performance digital signal processor (DSP) that uses digital signal processing to recreate sound fieldsartificially. One of seven surround modes can be selected according to the program source and parameters can be further adjusted to achieveeven more realistic sound fields.

    Types of surround modes and their features

    This mode recreates the atmosphere of a live concert in an arena.

    This mode recreates the atmosphere of a live concert in a club with low ceilings, hard walls and the artist just infront of you.

    This mode provides a rich sense of presence for video games.

    This mode recreates the atmosphere of an expansive sound field for movie sources recorded in monaural.

    This mode recreates music sources recorded in stereo with an enhanced sense of expansion.

    This mode can be used to enjoy surround sound with only front speakers or when using headphones.

    NOTE 1: 5CH STEREO is displayed when SB CH OUT is set to OFF.NOTE 2: When playing sources recorded in monaural, the sound will be one-sided if signals are only input to one channel (left or right), so input

    signals to both channels. If you have a source component with only one audio output (monophonic camcorder, etc.) obtain a Yadapter cable to split the mono output to two outputs, and connect to the L and R inputs.

    Depending on the program source being played, the effect may not be very noticeable. In this case, try other surround modes, withoutworrying about their names, to create a sound field suited to your tastes.

    This mode lets you enjoy stereo sound with 7 speakers. The front L (R) channel signals are played from the surroundand surround back L (R) channels and only the in-phase component of the L and R channels is played on the centerchannel.
