Found in most home theatre receivers/processors, Digital Signal Processing attempts to recreate particular surroundings such as a jazz club, stadium, or church, to name a few. Some manufacturers load up their equipment with a bunch of these sound fields. Rotel, however, prefers to keep them to a minimum, for those who wish to experiment. We believe music should be reproduced faithfully to the original performance. When a musician records an album, it is usually done in good ol' fashioned two-channel stereo, not in an electronically reproduced sound mode. Moreover, it is not realistic to think someone can transform their living room into the same acoustical characteristics as an intimate jazz club or a large outdoor stadium. Multi-channel DVD concert discs, DTS music discs, and DVD-Audio will provide a much more realistic atmosphere over even the most sophisticated DSP modes.
