< Overview > DNSe 2.0 : Music That Comes Alive Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. is proven leader in semiconductor, nvergence technologies.
Over the utation for improving customers’ nts. one of the fastest growing global brands, and a telecommunication, digital media and digital co years, Samsung has built and reaffirmed its rep lives with groundbreaking technological advanceme
In 2003, Samsung first launched its new sound enhancing technology, Digital Natu ral Sound engine (DNSe), after years of research on audio DSP and acoustics. Sin ce then, Samsung has continued to fine-tune this technology, investing in R&D on DNSe, to provide the ultimate in sound fidelity on Samsung products ranging fro m TVs, DVD players, stereo systems, and MP3 players. The aim of DNSe 2.0 is to restore the best sonic experience to the end user. The new sound engine yields higher quality sound with more natural effects than con ventional methods by reproducing the “genuine” stereo sound intended by the music co ntent creators. It achieves this by overcoming the limitations from earphones an d less-than-ideal speakers to offer realistic stereo and deep bass sounds. In addition, Samsung has sculpted ideal listening experiences that further compe nsate for the native restrictions of portable music and multimedia players. Usin g embedded technologies that include 3D, Street Mode, Clarity, and Concert Hall, Samsung has tweaked these functions into user-centric presets, ranging from Roc k to Classic, Vocal to Bass Boost, that further heighten the music experience. With any DNSe-enabled device, you can go on an aural journey…from the Met where sy mphony orchestras come alive to the hottest underground club where bass-enhanced music gets you dancing. Whichever type of music you listen to, Samsung’s DNSe tec hnology will ensure that it comes alive in your ears. Samsung’s DNSe 2.0 technology has already been implemented, through a firmware upg rade, in the YP-K3 MP3 player, which was released early in 2007. DNSe 2.0, as we ll as future upgraded versions of the sound engine technology, will be incorpora ted in all of Samsung’s new MP3 players. More information on these devices will be available at a later date. Please visit www.samsungplay.com for more information on DNSe 2.0.
< Natural Stereo Sound > Stereo sound is important to music lovers because it translates what would other wise be a flat and unnatural sound to music that sounds as if it is being played live in your ears. However, by nature of the physical limitations of earphones, it is generally difficult to achieve a satisfying stereo listening experience b ecause of the unnatural channel separation to the left and right earbuds. Even s tereo speakers on portable devices pose an acoustic dilemma because they are too close together to simulate an ideal stereo environment. Achieving a genuine 3D stereo sound image requires the exact positioning of the left and right speakers as well as the listener in order to achieve the perfect balance of sound going to left and right. This means having some of the left cha nnel being heard in the right ear, and a portion of the right channel being audi ble in the left ear.
the music would lose a dimension in its audible experience. The processed bass overtones compel the brain to replace the mi ssing fundamental bass signals.Samsung’s DNSe 2. In doing so. So that hip hop music blares pulse-pounding bass…as if you’re dancing in the hottest club. creating the illusion of the low bass registers. By reproducing the genuine stereo sound intended by the music contents creators. Audiophiles can now enjo y the same acoustic fidelity on the go that they would achieve with their engine ered home stereo system. often. Users will be able to conveniently select the preset that makes t heir music come alive. This audio post processing that takes place enables the music players to restore the best sonic experience for the listeners.

The preset EQs breathe life into the portable music player. Using different formulations of technologies. this could lead to a less-than-satisfying listening experience. even when it is physically impossible to do so. the low bass sounds in hip hop or dance mus ic provide the base for the music. the lowest of which. audio enthusiasts can rest assure d that they can listen to optimized acoustics that enhance the type of music the y are listening to. They tweak the music so that classical music paints sweeping vistas of sound…as if you are in a concer t hall. DNSe enables portable music devices with earphones or small speake rs to simulate the acoustic depth that could only be achieved with more sophisti cated equipment. DNSe uses a psycho-acoustic phenomenon called Miss ing Fundamental that allows users to hear the lowest registers of rich bass soun ds. Nearly all sounds consist of a combination of several frequencies. Without the deep bass sounds. only bass and upper bass regis ters are audible. To correct these limitations. the bass line is the groove of the song that people dance to. For instance. full and meaty bass sound.
< Deep Bass Resonance > The physical limitations of earphones or small speakers also limit the reproduct ion of a thick.
< Design Your Acoustic Experience > DNSe incorporates embedded technologies that tweak the sound in order to optimiz e the desired sound image.
