WHAT WE TEST
THX engineers complete hundreds of different scientifically-formulated tests to ensure the highest audio visual standards possible.
ELECTRICAL & ACOUSTICAL TESTS
THX Engineers perform extensive tests in an acoustic chamber to ensure speaker response is uniform at any listening position and that the system is efficient enough to produce cinema levels from a THX Certified AVR.
THX Engineers listen to demanding soundtracks in the THX Home Theater Room to ensure the speakers sound natural and unstressed even at cinema levels.
Featured on all Certified Receivers, THX Listening Modes allow one speaker set up for movies, music and games.
THX CINEMA MODE
Recreates the ambience of a movie theater by positioning the 5.1, 7.1 and immersive mixes to literally submerge you in the movie soundtrack.
THX GAME MODE
Creates an immersive 360-degree gaming experience by distributing sound effects and dialogue generated by game engines, and placing the audio from a 5.1, 7.1 or immersive mix to the players in-game location.
THX MUSIC MODE
Placing you directly in the recording session by emulating the original studio environment for the 5.1, 7.1 or immersive mix for an accurate and increased sense of spaciousness and localization.
THX SURROUND EX
Creates a more immersive entertainment experience by decoding the third surround channel from the traditional two surround channels.
