- The compressed music enhancer is a feature that allows the production of vivid clear sound by home theatre systems.
- Clear audio without noise and distortion is critical to an immersive surround sound experience.
- A compressed music enhancer or compressor is a device that automatically reduces the gain/intake of audio signals by the amplifier when activated.
- This process is similar to turning the volume knob on your stereo or AV receiver.
- The compressed music enhancer also has a “make-up gain” feature that can step up the audio signal after the initial gain reduction.
- This makes the resultant audio signal more intense and louder without any distortion or noise.
- To eliminate unwanted noise that is louder than the desired sound signal, the compressor turns down the audio gain which drastically reduces it.
- The “make-up gain” then powers up the “cleaned” sound to the desired volume.
