I'm using a rx-v465 with energy rc-10 speakers. I'm reading my manual and their are three modes in range auto/min , std,max. It doesn't really specifically say what will it do? It will be mostly used for HT. Also if it helps it will be mostly used with my fat ps3 which only outputs PCM through hdmi

By “range” do you mean “dynamic range?” If so, the purpose is to apply compression to the audio signal, so that the loud and soft sounds are at approximately the same volume. This might be good for late night viewing when people were sleeping in the house – you could turn the system up loud enough to hear say, whispered dialog, yet not “wake the dead” when an explosion hit. You’ll have to check the manual to see if the “Min” and “Max” refers to dynamic range or compression, to decide where you want to have it set. Basically, you want maximum dynamic range (minimum compression) for normal viewing, and minimal dynamic range (maximum compression) for late-night viewing.

I have a Sony receiver, and in a SONY MAX means maximum Dynamic Range Compression (minimum dynamic range). Dynamic Range Compression scales from 0 to 9, then MAX. DRC only works DD in my unit.


As I recall, Yamaha calls their adjustment Dynamic Range. That means MAX means maximum dynamic range (No compression), and MIN means minimum dynamic range (maximum conpression).


Put on a loud action DD DVD like Master and Commander, and try MIN and MAX. The difference in volume level tells you all that you need to know!
