THX TruStudio Pro provides the fullest audio experience for music, movies and games, while remaining true to the source and intention of the artists who created it. THX TruStudio Pro includes:

 

THX TruStudio Pro Surround

Surround 3D provides immersion control to enhance the natural sense of audio depth and spaciousness by creating virtual surround sound channels. Stereo content or multi-channel content played over stereo speakers and headphones will sound as if it’s coming from around, above and below you while voices remain centered in front and original balance and timbre is preserved.

 

THX TruStudio Pro Crystalizer

Crystalizer restores the natural dynamic range that is lost when iTunes and MP3 music gets compressed. This makes the music sounds as good as the artist originally intended, and adds an enhanced level of realism for movies and games.

 

THX TruStudio Pro Speaker

Speaker fills in the missing low frequency tones and gives the extra impact for a better entertainment experience, for outstanding bass reproduction even without a subwoofer.

 

THX TruStudio Pro Dialog Plus

Dialog Plus enhances the voices in movies for clearer dialog, allowing the listener to hear the dialog over the rest of the soundtrack and over ambient noise in the listening environment.

 

THX TruStudio Pro Smart Volume

Smart Volume addresses the problem of abrupt volume level changes during playback and between songs by automatically and continuously measuring volume, and intelligently applying gain and attenuation to compensate for those changes.
