It's all about accuracy: hearing precisely what the sound engineer intended, in the room of your choice. Achieve this accuracy, easier than ever, with the first advanced Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration Circuit (MCACC). Using a microphone, MCACC measures your room's acoustic environment, then fine tunes the sonic performance of your home entertainment system. For even more customization, you can view a 3-D graphic representation of a room’s unique acoustic topography on your PC. Professional-level custom calibration is made even easier with dedicated online support. Custom installers will also appreciate its Blu-ray Disc® ready RS-232C.
