Audyssey MultEQ for simple set-up
Using the measuring microphone and stand supplied, Audyssey MultEQ measures the speaker
s in your home theater, including the subwoofer
, and then applies multiple high precision DSP room acoustic correction filters, providing the smoothest, most natural tonal balance - regardless of the brand(s) or model(s) of speaker
Audyssey Dynamic EQ features advanced psycho-acoustic processing to deliver clear dialogue and wide-band response even at reduced volume levels, delivering cinema-level clarity whatever listening level you choose, while Audyssey Dynamic Volume avoids nasty shocks by normalizing volume when content switches to commercials or announcements, creating an easier listening experience.
Dual Subwoofer Outputs
A single subwoofer
demands optimum placement within the room for the best bass response: depending on its location, the low-frequency response at the main listening position can be uneven with audible peaks and dips. The NR1508 supports two subwoofer
s: used in different locations, these will even out the low-frequency response for more accurate bass anywhere in the listening area.
Smart TV Connectivity
Via the HDMI CEC (consumer electronics control) functionality on some Smart TVs, it's possible to control the NR1508 with the TV's remote handset. With the receiver's "HDMI control" set to ON, set "Smart Menu" receiver control functions and the TV's Smart Menu home screen will provide you direct access to source and surround mode selections, the main setup menu, and Smart Select configuration presets.
Simple Smart Select Functions
4 Smart Select function buttons on the remote control will store your preferred setup - input, volume and Audyssey configuration - for particular sources. The push of just one button has the NR1508 perfectly configured for anything from Blu-ray or your TV set-top box to your favorite Internet radio

Easy To Use
For easy installation, the NR1508's horizontal row of premium loudspeaker
terminals is color coded, with a set of matching cable-labels supplied to ensure correct hook-up.
