THX Advanced Speaker Array (ASA) recreates the 5.1 studio surround sound field in your home by digitally reconfiguring the surround channels for the type of media you are enjoying. Featured on all Certified Receivers, THX ASA establishes THX Listening Modes, making it convenient to have one speaker set up for movies, music and games.
Today, movie, music and games are created in different types of studio environments, with multiple speaker configurations. The dilemma? Finding a single listening solution for playing different types of media, without physically moving your speakers. THX ASA addresses this by providing the following Listening Modes:
Recreates the ambiance of the movie theater by positioning the 5.1 mix to immerse you in the movie’s soundtrack.
Distributes the sound effects and dialogue generated by the game engine, placing the audio from a 5.1 mix source to the appropriate “action” location – creating 360-degree gaming experience.
Emulates the original studio environment by repositioning the 5.1 surround sound mix further behind you for an accurate and increased sense of spaciousness and localization – placing you directly in the recording session.
Decodes the third surround channel from the traditional two surround channels, creating a more immersive entertainment experience.
