What is Dolby Dynamic Range and how is it set?
Dolby Dynamic Range is a setting that allows you to select one of the following two options:
- Standard: A setting that faithfully reproduces the preset original volume level for the relevant content. This mode takes the widest dynamic range (the difference between the quietest and loudest sounds). Because signals are played back directly, quiet signals remain quiet and loud signals remain loud.
- Compressed: A setting that adjusts and reproduces the volume level difference with other content. 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.
You can set Dolby Dynamic Range with the following procedure.
- Open the Settings screen. How to access Settings
- The next steps will depend on your TV menu options:
- Select Display & Sound → Sound → Volume level → Dolby Dynamic Range → Standard or Compressed.
- Select Sound → Sound → Advanced settings → Input related → Dolby Dynamic Range → Standard or Compressed.
