FAQ

  1. BLUETOOTH CONNECTION

How do I pair a Bluetooth device?

Please note the default SBC Bluetooth audio CODEC on mobile devices does not deliver high quality sound. YARRA 3DX is compatible with the aptX CODEC which yields high fidelity sound. This CODEC must be enabled in your mobile device under “Bluetooth Audio CODEC Settings”.  (Note that aptX is not supported on all playback devices.)

  1. HOW TO ENABLE HDMI CEC STANDBY FUNCTION

CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) will allow your TV remote control to power Yarra Off and On automatically, as well as control the volume and mute.  Press and hold soundbar “Volume Down” button, then press “Power” button until yellow LED indicators flash, then release both buttons. Refer to your Smart TV owner’s manual to enable CEC functionality. HDMI cabling is required for CEC control.

  1. WHY IS THE YARRA’S HDMI OUTPUT LABELED ARC?

ARC stands for “Audio Return Channel”, and is used by Smart TVs and other devices to route audio to a soundbar like the Yarra 3DX. If your TV has an HDMI input labeled “ARC”, be sure to use this to connect to the HDMI output on the Yarra 3DX. This will allow your system to properly send audio to the Yarra 3DX no matter what playback device you are using. The Yarra will coordinate with the TV in order to make sure the system is configured correctly.

If your TV does not have an HDMI input labeled ARC, then just connect it to one of the other HDMI inputs.

  1. SYSTEM VOLUME LOW

If your TV audio output signal (Analog or HDMI) is low and YARRA does not get loud enough it will be necessary to upgrade your firmware.

  1. HRTF SELECTION

Head Related Transfer Function also sometimes known as the anatomical transfer function is a response that characterizes how the human ear receives a sound from a point in space. As sound strikes the listener, the size and shape of the head, ears, ear canal, density of the head, size and shape of nasal and oral cavities, all transform the sound and affect how it is perceived, boosting some frequencies and attenuating others. Basically, it is the way in which our head changes the sounds that reach our eardrums. YARRA has a library of ten HRTF functions. Use the one that produces best 3D imaging based on your preferences.

HRTF selection is only available when using HDMI or optical inputs, and if a Dolby Digital bitstream is being provided.
