Full Auto MCACC

Place the supplied speaker setup microphone in the listening position, measure the test tones emitted by the speakers, then the unit automatically sets the optimum volume level for each speaker, the crossover frequencies, and the distance from the listening position. The influence of standing waves can be reduced to suit the listening environment, the reverberation characteristics can be measured to increase the precision of calibration, the speaker equalizers can be adjusted, and the difference in phase and timing between speakers and speaker units can be corrected. These settings and calibrations can be readjusted with Manual MCACC, and you can enable or disable them in AV Adjust.

Calibration takes between 3 to 12 minutes to be completed. The speakers emit the test tone at high volume during measurement, so be careful of your surroundings. Keep the room as quiet as possible during measurement.

If the power of this unit suddenly turns off, the wires in the speaker cables may have touch the rear panel or other wires and tripped the protection circuit. Twist the wires again properly and make sure they do not stick out of the speaker terminals when connecting.

1.Place the supplied speaker setup microphone in the listening position, and connect to the MCACC SETUP MIC jack on the main unit.


When putting the speaker setup microphone on a tripod, refer to the illustration when putting it in place.

To cancel Full Auto MCACC partway through, disconnect the speaker setup microphone.

2.Select the connected speaker configuration, and select the calibration type for which you want to save the measurement results from amongst "Symmetry", "All Channel Adjust", and "Front Align".


The image on the screen changes as you choose the number of channels in "Speaker Channels", so refer to it when performing the settings.

Use this screen to select whether you have connected a subwoofer and to select the type of height speaker, etc.

If you have connected a subwoofer, check the power and volume of the subwoofer. Set the subwoofer volume to more than halfway.

"Symmetry" is a type of calibration that emphasizes phase characteristics. "All Channel Adjust" emphasizes frequency characteristics. "Front Align" calibrates to emphasize the characteristics of the front speakers. The initial setting is "Symmetry". To save the measurement results of other calibration types, select from "M1.Memory 1" to "M3.Memory 3". If multiple calibration types are selected, you can select the calibration type to use in "AV Adjust" - "MCACC" - "MCACC Memory". Note that you cannot select the same save destination for different calibration types.


After making the above settings, press ENTER.

3.Test tones are emitted by the speakers, and firstly the unit detects the speakers connected and the noise in the environment.

If "Reverse Phase" is displayed, check whether you have connected the poles of the speakers (+ / –) in reverse. Even if the connections are correct, "Reverse Phase" may be displayed due to the speakers or the environment surrounding the speakers, but this will not affect the calibration so you can proceed to the next step.

4.After the results of the above measurements are displayed, select "Next", press ENTER on the remote controller, and the test tones are emitted again, and the unit automatically makes settings such as the optimum volume level and the crossover frequency.

5.Calibration finishes, so when "Please unplug setup microphone." is displayed, disconnect the speaker setup microphone. You cannot use any menu options other than MCACC Pro while it is connected.

Manual MCACC

When Full Auto MCACC is run, a variety of speaker settings are made automatically, but Manual MCACC enables you to make further adjustments manually, giving you the opportunity to make even more detailed settings.

Before making these adjustments, run Full Auto MCACC first.

Depending on the settings, speakers may emit test tones at high volume during measurement, so be careful of your surroundings.

If multiple settings are saved in the MCACC Memory, press 52406.png on the remote controller, and select the MCACC Memory first in "AV Adjust" - "MCACC" - "MCACC Memory".
