With the use of a plug-in provided microphone, the Advanced D.C.A.C uses a series of test tones to determine the proper speaker levels, based on the detected placement of speakers in relation to the acoustical properties of your room.

The UBP-X700 model will be priced at approximately €270 /£270 and available from January 2018.

The STR-DH790 model will be priced at approximately £400 and available from spring 2018.
