What is Dolby Dynamic Range and how is it set?

    You can set Dolby Dynamic Range with the following procedure.

    1. Open the  Settings screen. How to access Settings
    2. The next steps will depend on your TV menu options:
      • Select Display & SoundSoundVolume levelDolby Dynamic RangeStandard or Compressed.
      • Select SoundSoundAdvanced settingsInput relatedDolby Dynamic RangeStandard or Compressed.

    The following are explanations for each setting:

    • Standard: This mode takes the widest dynamic range (difference between the quietest and loudest sounds).
      Because signals are played back directly, quiet signals remain quiet and loud signals remain loud.
    • Compressed: This mode compresses the volume difference and increases the overall volume.
      The audio is easier to hear, regardless of the dynamic range of the sound source.

    NOTE: This setting affects Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, and Dolby AC-4 sound sources.
