The following sound settings can be adjusted to suit your personal
preferences.
◆ Auto Volume
Each broadcasting station has its own signal conditions,
and so it is not easy for you to adjust the volume every
time the channel is changed. “Auto Volume” lets you
automatically adjust the volume of the desired channel by
lowering the sound output when the modulation signal is
high or by raising the sound output when the modulation
signal is low.
◆ Melody
You can hear clear melody sound when the TV is
powered ON or OFF.
◆ Pseudo Stereo
“Pseudo Stereo” converts a monaural sound signal into
two identical left and right channels.
Once the “Pseudo Stereo” is set to “On” or “Off”, the
setting applies to the sound effects such as Standard,
Music, Movie and Speech.
◆ Turbo Sound
You can enjoy more magnificent and dynamic sound
when watching music, movie or other channel. “Turbo
Sound” suitably emphasizes both higher and lower bands
of sound (and includes other effects).
