    Hi, I have had my set up for a few months now and have not played around with it too much, but have now been looking at seeing if I can improve the sound at all by tweaking the settings. I am a little unsure of a couple of features found in the sound parameters, and what I should expect to see by making adjustments, these being...

    Cimema EQ (on or off), Panorama control (on or off), dimension control, centre width control, tone defeat setting (on or off) and D.Comp setting.

    Is one of these to do with effects matching the speaking, sometimes called midnight mode, which stops the sound affects over powering the talking?

    The amp is a denon AVR-1705.

    Any suggestions to set ups or help with the above would be much appreciated.

    Many thanks....Richard :)

    Cimema EQ (on or off) - is mentioned in the instructions for my 2105
    Turn it on if it sounds a bit bright :D

    Panaroma control, dimension control, centre width control all affect the multi channel music outputs - DPLII music - don't use it myself.

    Tone Defeat setting - disables the Bass and treble controls. People will argue fewer filters on the sound will improve the clarity. Mine is off.

    D.Comp is short for Dynamic Compression. This allows you to decrease the range of soft to loud in DTS and Dolby Digital sound tracks so you don't wake the kids late at night when a building unexpectedly explodes in the middle of your romantic comedy :)
