ADVANCED OPERATIONS
You can use the test tone feature to manually balance your 
speaker levels. Please note that this operation will override 
the level adjustments made in “AUTO SETUP” (page 24), 
“Speaker level” (page 50) and “Manually adjusting 
speaker levels” (page 45). Use the test tone to set speaker 
levels so that the volume from each speaker is identical 
when heard from your listening position.
