I have a Yamaha RX-V795 receiver that has 3 Dynamic range settings.


Min., Standard, Max.


I know this feature is for Late night listening/compression of dynamics.


I believe that it should be set to Max. for proper calibration with the VE DVD.

(My thinking is that Max would allow the full uncompressed signal to pass from the player through the receiver and speakers the way it was intended to be)


My friend believes that it should be set to Standard for the calibration.

(His thinking is that "Standard" means like a Dolby/DTS or THX standard, and that the max setting "Stretches" the signal beyond what it is supposed to be.


Which way is correct?

It's been too long since I had my last Yamaha to be precise but:


If the menu item says "Dynamic Range" it should be set to Max.


If it says "Dynamic Range Compression", it should be set to Min.


What you want is no compression of the dynamic range of the digital signal.

Standard is going to compress. There is no "stretching".

Steve S is correct. It should be set to MAX as per page 56 of your users manual. In STD and MIN positions "a source encoded with Dolby Digital is reproduced in the "compressed" dynamic range of the source suitable for low listening levels."
