X64 man:There is no Bass boost for HDMI sources. There is a bass reduction option
- See page 97 of your manual
Some Dolby Digital and DTS
audio sources include ultra-low
bass tones. Set the LFE attenuator
as necessary to prevent the ultralow
bass tones from distorting the
sound from the speakers.
The LFE is not limited when set to
0 dB, which is the recommended
value. When set to -5 dB, -10 dB,
-15 dB or -20 dB, the LFE is
limited by the respective degree.
When OFF is selected, no sound
is output from the LFE channel.
