I have a setting on my reciever that is named D Range..I have choices of Max, STRD, or Low
Dynamic Range - Pertaining to a signal: the ratio between the loudest and the quietest passages.
So should I have it at Max?
What receiver do you have? It was my impression that D.Range on a receiver always stands for Dynamic Range Compression. If so, then look for an off setting, because you would only possibly want this on at night.
On mine it's Dynamic Range, not compression like Joe was wondering. I have a Yamaha RX-V595. I don't know what your preferences are for audio, but as for me, I use it on max during the day, and turn it down to min at night. When you have it set to maximum Dynamic Range, explosions have more punch, and the loud parts in movies sound as loud as they're supposed to.
I have Dynamic Range on my Sony. I've always left it on "off". Maybe I'll give it a look today.
Todd, i have a sony too.. for the sonys, it definitely means that it is compressing the dynamic range when you turn it on. Unless watching at night, with a sony, you want it off.
Whether it's called D-R or D-R-C or LateNite all 3 mean the
same thing. Dynamic Range Compression. This feature limits
the Dynamic Range of Movies (or if it's on the DVD Player it
will limit the Dynamic Range of all media) basicly lowering
the LFE and regular Bass output and taming loud dynamic peaks
in movies or sound tracks for late night watching. They say
it makes it easier to hear dialog without distracting the
neighbors by shaking the neighborbood.
I have Tried LateNite on my Onkyo 787 Receiver and I find it
to be very annoying and very noticable when a loud dynamic
effect comes on screen and the Receiver "dims" the sound.
I will just keep the volume lower and be able to hear the
whole sound track. That's JMHO.
Yeah I have the Yamaha RX-V520. So I should just leave it at Max, right?
