Using the included setup microphone the SR 7015 will take you step by step through this simple setup to adjust parameters to allow for your room acoustics. If you have dual subwoofers ( Our recommendation ) the Audyssey can even calibrate them individually to allow for differences in positioning. Another fantastic feature of XT32 is Dynamic EQ, not everybody wants to listen to their movies at reference level however, when the volume is lowered the drama and surround sound experience may be lost. Dynamic EQ combats this by adjusting levels to ensure that you hear the full experience of the blockbuster movie at any volume. As if that wasn't enough, Marantz have also included Audyssey Dynamic Volume which takes out the differences in volume between adverts and soaps meaning you wont be reaching for the remote before the adverts start.
The new SR 7015 allows storing of two Audyssey settings as well as switching between the two settings on the fly, giving you freedom to tweak your listening experience for the content or listening environment. This is especially useful if you listen to a lot of your music in stereo as you can simply select the Audyssey preset for hifi listening and back to surround sound when you want to watch a movie.
