I purchased this case right when I bought my iPhone 3G 2 years ago and even though now is the time where I need to purchase a new one. This case is awful-I hate the screen cover it was thick and was so scratched by the end of the first day, I took it off of the phone.

The TA-VA8ES is provided with a variety of surround features which allow you to listen to a wide range sources in surround sound. It is also equipped with several adjustable parameters to let you customize the sound to your preference.
Using Pre-programmed Sound Fields
You can take advantage of surround sound simply by selecting one of the pre-programmed sound fields according to the programme you want to play.
To use a pre-programmed sound field
See Using Pre-programmed Sound Fields on this page. This section describes how to recall the sound fields and provides a description of each sound field.
To take advantage of Dolby Pro Logic Surround sound

Adjusting the speaker volume
The test tone feature lets you set the volume of your speakers to the same level. (If all of your speakers have equal performance, you dont have to adjust the speaker volume.) Using the controls on the remote lets you adjust the volume level from your listening position.
Press TEST TONE on the remote. You will hear the test tone from each speaker sequentially.
Adjust the volume levels so that you hear the test tone from each speaker at the same volume level when you are in your listening position: To adjust the volume between the front right and front left speakers, use the BALANCE control on the front of the main unit. To adjust the level of centre speaker, press CENTER LEVEL + or on the remote. To adjust the level of rear speakers, press REAR LEVEL + or on the remote. Press TEST TONE on the remote to turn off the test tone. You can adjust all speakers at one time


Taking Advantage of the Sound Fields
This amplifer uses digital signal processing to reproduce the sound effects of various listening environments, such as a movie theatres and concert halls (etc.). By adjusting the surround parameters you can control these sound elements to create a custom listening environment.
Room Size Simulation (ROOM SIZE)
Before sound reaches our ears, it is reflected many times between the left and right walls, ceiling, and floor. In a large room, sound takes more time to bounce from one surface to another than in a smaller room. The ROOM SIZE parameter lets you control the spacing of the early reflections to simulate a sonically larger (L), or smaller (S) room. The mid-point designates a standard room with no adjustment.

Adjusting the delay time

You can make the surround sound more effective by delaying the output from the rear speakers (delay time). You can adjust the delay time in 0.1 ms steps within the range of 15 to 30 ms. For example, if youve placed the rear speakers in a large room or apart from your listening position, set the delay time shorter.

Wall Material Simulation (WALL TYPE)
When sound is reflected off soft material, such as curtain, the high frequency elements are reduced. A hard wall is highly reflective and does not significantly affect the frequency response of the reflected sound. The WALL TYPE parameter lets you control the level of the high frequencies to alter the sonic character of your listening environment by simulating a softer (S), or harder (H) wall. The mid-point designates a neutral wall (made of wood).
Start playing a programme source encoded with Dolby surround sound. Press DPC MODE until the SURROUND indicator lights up. Rotate the PARAMETER knob to select the delay time. The current delay time appears in the display. Rotate the LEVEL knob to adjust the delay time.

Seat Position Simulation

If you sit in the front of a room, you hear more direct sound from the front speakers. As you move to the rear, the reflected sound increases. Similarly, the reflected sound changes when you move from left to right, and vice versa. The FRONT/REAR and LEFT/RIGHT parameters let you control the balance of direct and reflected sound to simulate your listening position. In the FRONT/REAR parameter, F signifies the front of the room and R signifies the rear. The mid-point designates the centre. In the LEFT/RIGHT parameter, L signifies the left side of the room and R signifies the right side. The mid-point designates the centre.

Adjusting the equalizer

You can adjust the tone of the speakers. Follow the procedure described in Adjusting the equalizer on page 17.
Reverberation Time (REVERB)
This parameter adjusts the length of time required for the reverberation (echoes) generated from a given sound to attenuate 60 dB. You can choose shorter (S) or longer (L) reverberation times. Note
The EFFECT parameter allows you to adjust the overall presence of the sound field.
Adjust the tone of the front, centre and rear speakers for optimum sound. You can adjust the tone of all sound fields, including Dolby Surround.
Press SOUND FIELD ON/OFF so the name of the previously selected sound field appears in the display. Press DPC MODE so that the EQUALIZER indicator lights up. Press EQUALIZER BAND to select a frequency band: B (bass), M (midrange), or T (treble). Press SLOPE to select the type of adjustment you want: NARROW (to adjust a specific frequency), MEDIUM (to a small group of frequencies), or WIDE (to adjust a broad range of frequencies). Rotate the FREQUENCY digital processing control knob to select the frequency you want to adjust. Use the EQ LEVEL digital processing control knob to raise or lower the level of the selected frequency. Repeat steps 3 through 6 for other frequency bands until you obtain the equalization curve you desire. You can turn off the tone adjustments without erasing them
