The Eco mode provides energy savings and features an on-screen Eco meter.
Audyssey MultEQ for simple set-up
Via the supplied measuring microphone and mic stand, Audyssey MultEQ measures all the speakers in your home theater during setup, including the subwoofer, and then generates multiple high precision DSP room acoustic correction filters, together 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 full range clear-dialog 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 when what you're watching switches from content 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 subwoofers: used in different locations, these will even out the low-frequency response for more accurate bass anywhere in the listening area.
Convenient USB Port
With the convenient front panel USB port, you can connect a USB drive and listen to files from MP3 all the way up to high resolution DSD (2.8/5.6 MHz), and lossless FLAC lossless (up to 24-bit/192-kHz).
Color Coded Speaker Terminals
For easy installation, the NR1508 features a horizontal row of premium loudspeaker terminals; the color coded connection system includes a set of matching cable-labels to ensure correct speaker hook-up.
