Apple AirPlay 2

Apple AirPlay 2 lets you effortlessly stream music or podcasts to speakers throughout your house using any Apple device or by asking Siri, and it all stays in perfect sync.

Advanced MCACC Auto Room Tuning featuring Auto Phase Control Plus

Advanced MCACC adjusts the sound according to the listening room and speakers, and also creates clearer sound by suppressing the standing waves that occur between walls or ceiling and floor. Measurement of up to nine positions can be saved for a wide listening area. Auto Phase Control Plus* makes real-time analysis of the phase difference, and automatically compensates the gap between the LFE and main signals, providing strong bass and clear high-frequency sound.

Dolby Atmos

Can automatically adapt the audio to the existing channels and speaker system, no specific speaker layout is required.

Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization
