"Direct Mode" is for 2channel (stereo) music with no processing at all, no eq, no all channel no anything just pure unadulterated non-processed sound only thing used is the DAC (digital to analog converter) if it is a digital in signal and amplification. IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE THAT WAY. It is the most pure 'audiophile setting' to invoke minimal processing/changing of the signal. On upper level models it is known as "Pure Audio" instead of direct.
when in doubt RTFM
