Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

You can set Dolby Dynamic Range with the following procedure.

  1. Press the HOME button on the remote control.
  2. Select  Settings.
  3. Select Sound.
  4. Select Sound.
  5. Select Advanced settings.
  6. Select Input related.
  7. Select Dolby Dynamic Range.
  8. Select Standard or Compressed.

The following are explanations for each setting:

  • Standard: This mode takes the widest dynamic range (difference between the quietest and loudest sounds).
    Because signals are played back directly, quiet signals remain quiet and loud signals remain loud.
  • Compressed: This mode compresses the volume difference and increases the overall volume.
    The audio is easier to hear, regardless of the dynamic range of the sound source.

NOTE: This setting affects Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, and Dolby AC-4 sound sources.
