Cautions on installation
Noise or disturbance of the picture may be
generated if this unit or any other electronic
equipment using microprocessors is used
near a tuner or TV.
If this happens, take the following steps:
• Install this unit as far away as possible
from the tuner or TV.
• Run the antenna wires from the tuner or
TV away from this unit’s power supply cord
and input/output connection cables.
• Noise or disturbance tends to occur
particularly when using indoor antennas or
300 Ω/ohm feeder wires. We recommend
using outdoor antennas and 75 Ω/ohm
coaxial cables.

Before using
Pay attention to the following before using this
unit:
• Moving the unit
To prevent short-circuits or damaged wires in
the connection cables, always unplug the power
supply cord and disconnect the connection
cables between all other audio components
when moving the unit.
• Before turning the power switch on
Check once again that all connections are
correct and that there are not problems with
the connection cables. Always set the power
switch to the standby position before
connecting and disconnecting connection
cables.
Note
Wall
Note:
For heat dispersal, do not install this unit in a confined space such as a bookcase or similar
enclosure.
• Store these instructions in a safe place.
After reading, store this instructions along with
the warranty card in a safe place.
• Note that the illustrations in these
instructions may differ from the actual unit
for explanation purposes.
Cautions on handling
• Switching the input source when input terminals are not connected.
A clicking noise may be produced if the input source is switched when nothing is connected to
the input terminals. If this happens, either turn down the MASTER VOLUME control knob or
connect components to the input terminals.
• V. AUX terminals
The AVR-686’s front panel is equipped with V.
AUX terminals. Remove the cap covering the
terminals when you want to use them.
• Muting of PRE OUT terminals, PHONES jack and SPEAKER terminals.
The PRE OUT terminals, PHONES jack and SPEAKER terminals include a muting circuit. Because
of this, the output signals are greatly attenuated for several seconds after the power switch is
turned on or the input source, surround mode or any other set-up is changed. If the volume is
turned up during this time, the output will be very high after the muting circuit stops functioning.
Always wait until the muting circuit turns off before adjusting the volume.
• Whenever the power switch is in the STANDBY state, the unit is still connected to AC line
voltage.
Please be sure to turn off the power switch or unplug the cord when you leave home for,
say, a vacation.
Preparing the remote control unit
The included remote control unit (RC-1001) can be used to operate not only the AVR-686 but other
remote control compatible DENON components as well. In addition, the memory contains control
signals for other remote control units, so it can be used to operate non-DENON remote control
compatible products.

Speaker system layout
Speaker connections
• Connect the speaker terminals with the
speakers making sure that like polarities are
matched (< with <, > with >). Mismatching
of polarities will result in weak central sound,
unclear orientation of the various instruments,
and the stereo image being impaired.
• When making connections, take care that
none of the individual conductors of the speaker
cable come in contact with adjacent terminals,
with other speaker cable conductors, or with
the rear panel.
2 Basic system layout
The following is an example of the basic layout for a system consisting of eight speaker systems
and a television monitor:
Subwoofer
Center speaker system
Surround back speaker systems
NOTE:
NEVER touch the speaker terminals
when the power is on. Doing so could
result in electric shocks.
Connecting the speaker cables
1. Loosen by turning
counterclockwise.
2. Insert the cable.
3. Tighten by turning
clockwise.
Connecting banana plugs

2 Speaker impedance
Front speaker systems
Set these at the sides of the TV
or screen with their front surfaces
as flush with the front of the
screen as possible.
• When speaker systems A and B are used
separately, speakers with an impedance of 6
to 16 Ω/ohms can be connected for use as
front speakers.
• Be careful when using two pairs of front
speakers (A + B) at the same time, since
speakers with an impedance of 12 to 16
Ω/ohms in this case must be used.
• Speakers with an impedance of 6 to 16
Ω/ohms can be connected for use as center
and surround and surround back speakers.
• The protector circuit may be activated if the
unit is operated for long periods of time at
high volumes when speakers with an
impedance lower than the specified
impedance are connected.
Surround speaker systems
Note on speaker impedance
The protector circuit may be activated if the
unit is operated for long periods of time at
high volumes when speakers with an
impedance lower than the specified
impedance (for example speakers with an
impedance of less than 4 Ω/ohms) are
connected. If the protector circuit is
activated, the speaker output is cut off. Turn
off the unit’s power, wait for the unit to cool
down, improve the ventilation around the
unit, then turn the power back on.

Protector circuit
This unit is equipped with a high-speed
protection circuit. The purpose of this circuit
is to protect the speakers under circumstances
such as when the output of the power
amplifier is inadvertently short-circuited and
a large current flows, when the temperature
surrounding the unit becomes unusually
high, or when the unit is used at high output
over a long period which results in an
extreme temperature rise.
When the protection circuit is activated, the
speaker output is cut off and the power
supply indicator flashes. Should this occur,
please follow these steps: be sure to switch
off the power of this unit, check whether
there are any faults with the wiring of the
speaker cables or input cables, and wait for
the unit to cool down if it is very hot.
Improve the ventilation condition around the
unit and switch the power back on.
If the protection circuit is activated again
even though there are no problems with the
wiring or the ventilation around the unit,
switch off the power and contact a DENON
service center.

Easy Setup and Operation
• For best picture quality (especially with progressive DVD and other high definition sources),
choose the component video connection to your monitor TV. S-Video and composite video
outputs are also provided if your TV does not have component video inputs.
Connecting a DVD player and monitor TV
• To connect the video output from the DVD player to the AVR-686, you only need to choose one
connection type. Component video connection offers the best quality (and is required for
progressive DVD playback), followed by S-Video, while composite video offers the lowest picture
quality of the three connection types. For more information about the video up conversion
function (
page 11).
• To connect the digital audio output from the DVD player, you can choose from either the coaxial
or optical connections. If you choose to use the coaxial connection, it needs to be assigned. For
more information about Digital Input Assignment (
page 42).
• Connect a non-DVD video disc player (such as a laser disc, VCD/SVCD, or future high definition
disc player) to the DVD/VDP terminals in the same way.

Cautions on the video conversion function:
When the component video terminals are used to connect the
AVR-686 with a TV (or monitor, projector, etc.) and the video
(yellow) or S-Video terminals are used to connect the AVR-686
with a VTR, depending on the combination of the TV and VTR
the picture may flicker in the horizontal direction, be distorted,
be out of sync not display at all when playing video tapes.
If this happens, connect a commercially available video
stabilizer, etc., with a TBC (time base corrector) function
between the AVR-686 and the VTR, or if your VTR has a TBC
function, turn it on.

DTS NEO:6 Mode:
• Cinema:
This mode is optimum for playing movies. Decoding is
performed with emphasis on separation performance to
achieve the same atmosphere with 2-channel sources as with
6.1-channel sources.
This mode is effective for playing sources recorded in
conventional surround formats as well, because the in-phase
component is assigned mainly to the center channel (C) and the
reversed phase component to the surround (SL, SR and SB
channels).
• Music:
This mode is suited mainly for playing music. The front channel
(FL and FR) signals bypass the decoder and are played directly
so there is no loss of sound quality, and the effect of the
surround signals output from the center (C) and surround (SL,
SR and SB) channels add a natural sense of expansion to the
sound field.
CENTER IMAGE (0.0 to 1.0: default 0.3):
The center image parameter for adjusting the expansion of the
center channel in the DTS NEO:6 MUSIC mode has been
added.

2 Surround parameters e
SB CH OUT (Surround Back):
CINEMA EQ. (Cinema Equalizer):
The Cinema EQ function gently decreases the level of the
extreme high frequencies, compensating for overly-bright
sounding motion picture soundtracks. Select this function if the
sound from the front speakers is too bright.
This function only works in the Dolby Pro Logic IIx, Dolby
Digital, DTS Surround and DTS NEO:6 modes. (The same
contents are set for all operating modes.)
(1) Multi-channel source
• OFF:
Playback is conducted without using the surround back
speaker.
• NON MTRX:
The same signals as those of the surround channels are
output from the surround back channels.
• MTRX ON:
The surround back channel is reproduced using digital matrix
processing.
• ES MTRX:
When playing DTS signals, the surround back signals undergo
digital matrix processing for playback.
• ES DSCRT:
When a signal identifying the source as a discrete 6.1-channel
source is included in the DTS signals, the surround back
signals included in the source are played.
• PLIIx Cinema:
Processing is performed with the Cinema mode of the PLIIx
decoder and the surround back channel is reproduced.
• PLIIx Music:
Processing is performed with the Music mode of the PLIIx
decoder and the surround back channel is reproduced.
D.COMP. (Dynamic Range Compression):
Motion picture soundtracks have tremendous dynamic range
(the contrast between very soft and very loud sounds). For
listening late at night, or whenever the maximum sound level is
lower than usual, the Dynamic Range Compression allows you
to hear all of the sounds in the soundtrack (but with reduced
dynamic range). (This only works when playing program
sources recorded in Dolby Digital or DTS). Select one of the
four parameters (“OFF”, “LOW”, “MID” (middle) or “HIGH”).
Set to “OFF” for normal listening.
LFE (Low Frequency Effect):
This sets the level of the LFE (Low Frequency Effect) sounds
included in the source when playing program sources recorded
in Dolby Digital or DTS.
If the sound produced from the subwoofer sounds distorted
due to the LFE signals when playing Dolby Digital or DTS
sources when the peak limiter is turned off with the subwoofer
peak limit level setting, adjust the level as necessary.
Program source and adjustment range:
1. Dolby Digital: –10 dB to 0 dB
2. DTS Surround: –10 dB to 0 dB
When DTS encoded movie software is played, it is
recommended that the LFE LEVEL be set to 0 dB for
correct DTS playback.
When DTS encoded music software is played, it is
recommended that the LFE LEVEL be set to –10 dB for
correct DTS playback.
2 Dialogue normalization
(2) 2ch source
• OFF:
Playback is conducted without using the surround back speaker.
• ON:
Playback is conducted using the surround back speaker.
TONE:
This enables tone control. This can be set individually for the
separate surround modes other than DIRECT mode.

ENGLISH
The dialog normalization function is activated automatically when
playing Dolby Digital program sources.
Dialog normalization is a basic function of Dolby Digital which
automatically normalizes the dialog level (standard level) of the
signals which are recorded at different levels for different
program sources, such as DVD, DTV and other future formats
that will use Dolby Digital.
These contents can be verified with the STATUS button.

DENON original surround modes
This unit is equipped with a high performance DSP (Digital Signal Processor) which uses digital signal processing to synthetically
recreate the sound field. One of 7 preset surround modes can be selected according to the program source and the parameters can
be adjusted according to the conditions in the listening room to achieve a more realistic, powerful sound.
Surround modes and their features
1 5CH/7CH STEREO
2
MONO MOVIE
(NOTE)
The front left channel signals are output to the surround and surround back left channels, the front right
channel signals are output to the surround and surround back right channels, and the in-phase component
of the left and right channels is output to the center channel. Use this mode to enjoy stereo sound.
Select this when watching monaural movies for a greater sense of expansion.
3 ROCK ARENA
Use this mode to achieve the feeling of a live concert in an arena with reflected sounds coming from all
directions.
4 JAZZ CLUB
This mode creates the sound field of a live house with a low ceiling and hard walls. This mode gives jazz
a very vivid realism.
5 VIDEO GAME
Use this to enjoy video game sources.
6 MATRIX
Select this to emphasize the sense of expansion for music sources recorded in stereo. Signals consisting
of the component difference of the input signals (the component that provides the sense of expansion)
processed for delay are output from the surround channel.
7 VIRTUAL
Select this mode to enjoy a virtual sound field, produced from the front 2-channel speakers or headphones.
Depending on the program source being played, the effect may not be very noticeable.
In this case, try other surround modes, without worrying about their names, to create a sound field suited to your tastes.
NOTE: When playing sources recorded in monaural, the sound will be one-sided if signals are only input to one channel (left or right),
so input signals to both channels. If you have a source component with only one audio output (monophonic camcorder, etc.)
obtain a “Y” adapter cable to split the mono output to two outputs, and connect to the L and R inputs.
2 Personal memory plus
This set is equipped with a personal memorize function that automatically memorizes the surround modes and input modes selected
for the different sources. When the input source is switched, the modes set for that source last time it was used are automatically
recalled.
The surround parameters, tone control settings and playback level balance for the different output channels are memorized for
each surround mode.

2 Assignment of low frequency signal range
• The number changes in units of 1 foot each time one of the
buttons is pressed. Select the value closest to the measured
distance.
• The difference in distance for the various speaker settings
must not be greater than 20 ft.
The signals produced from the subwoofer channel are LFE
signals (during playback of Dolby Digital or DTS signals) and the
low frequency signal range of channels set to “SMALL” in the
setup. The low frequency signal range of channels set to
“LARGE” are produced from those channels.
40
ENGLISH
2 Crossover Frequency
• When “Subwoofer” is set to “Yes” at the “Speaker
Configuration” setting, set the frequency (Hz) below which the
bass sound of the various speakers is to be output from the
subwoofer (the crossover frequency).
• For speakers set to “Small”, sound with a frequency below
the crossover frequency is cut, and the cut bass sound is
output from the subwoofer instead.
(• When “Subwoofer” is set to “No”, the bass sound is output
from the speakers set as “Large”.)
NOTE:
• For ordinary speaker systems, we recommend setting the
crossover frequency to 80 Hz. When using small speakers,
however, setting the crossover frequency to a higher
frequency may improve frequency response for frequencies
near the crossover frequency.
2 Subwoofer Mode
• The subwoofer mode setting is only valid when “Large” is set
for the front speakers and “Yes” is set for the subwoofer in
“Setting the Speaker Configuration” (
page 38, 39).
• When the “LFE+MAIN” playback mode is selected, the low
frequency signal range of channels set to “Large” is produced
simultaneously from those channels and the subwoofer
channel.
In this playback mode, the low frequency range expands more
uniformly through the room, but depending on the size and
shape of the room, interference may result in a decrease of the
actual volume of the low frequency range.
• Selection of the “LFE” play mode will play the low frequency
signal range of the channel selected with “Large” from that
channel only. Therefore, the low frequency signal range that is
played from the subwoofer channel is only the low frequency
signal range of LFE (only during Dolby Digital or DTS signal
playback) and the channels specified as “Small” in the setup
menu.
• Select the play mode that offers the fullest bass.
• When the subwoofer is set to “Yes”, bass sound is output from
the subwoofer regardless of the subwoofer mode setting in
surround modes other than Dolby/DTS.
• In surround modes other than Dolby Digital and DTS, if the
subwoofer is set to “Yes”, the low frequency portion is always
output to the subwoofer channel. For details, refer to
“Surround modes and parameters” (
page 51).

• When adjusting the level of an active subwoofer system, you
may also need to adjust the subwoofer’s own volume control.
• When you adjust the channel levels while in the system setup
channel level mode, the channel level adjustments made will
affect all surround modes. Consider this mode a master
channel level adjustment mode.
• After you have completed the system setup channel level
adjustments, you can then activate the individual surround
modes and adjust channel levels that will be remembered for
each of those modes. Then, whenever you activate a particular
surround sound mode, your preferred channel level
adjustments for just that mode will be recalled. Check the
instructions for adjusting channel levels within each surround
mode (
page 28).
2 Adjusting the test tone
• Before playing with the surround function, be sure to use the
test tones to adjust the playback level from the different
speakers. This adjustment can be performed with the system
setup or from the remote control unit, as described below.
• Adjusting with the remote control unit using the test tones is
only possible in the “Auto” mode and only effective in the
STANDARD (DOLBY/DTS SURROUND) modes. The adjusted
levels for the different modes are automatically stored in the

• Other types of audio:
These signals are designed to recreate a 360° sound field using
three to five speakers.
Optimum surround sound for different
sources
There are currently various types of multi-channel signals (signals
or formats with more than two channels).
FL
SW
C
FR
2 Types of multi-channel signals
Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic, DTS, high definition 3-1 signals
(Japan MUSE Hi-Vision audio), DVD-Audio, Super Audio CD,
MPEG multi-channel audio, etc.
A 6.1-channel system is a conventional 5.1-channel system to
which the “surround back” (SB) channel has been added. This
makes it easy to achieve sound positioned directly behind the
listener, something that was previously difficult with sources
designed for conventional multi surround speakers. In addition,
the acoustic image extending between the sides and the rear is
narrowed, thus greatly improving the expression of the surround
signals for sounds moving from the sides to the back and from
the front to the point directly behind the listening position.
Change of positioning and acoustic image

“Source” here does not refer to the type of signal (format) but
the recorded content. Sources can be divided into two major
categories.
2 Types of sources
• Movie audio:
Signals created to be played in movie theaters. In general
sound is recorded to be played in movie theaters equipped with
multiple surround speakers, regardless of the format (Dolby
Digital, DTS, etc.).

In this case the speakers should surround the listener from all
sides to create a uniform sound field from 360°. Ideally the
surround speakers should function as “point” sound sources in
the same way as the front speakers.
These two types of sources thus have different properties, and
different speaker settings, particularly for the surround speakers,
are required in order to achieve the ideal sound.

Additional Information
With this set, speaker(s) for 1 or 2 channels are required to
achieve a 6.1-channel system (DTS-ES, etc.). Adding these
speakers, however, increases the surround effect not only with
sources recorded in 6.1 channels but also with conventional 2- to
5.1-channel sources. Furthermore, all the DENON original
surround modes (
page 25) are compatible with 7.1-channel
playback, so you can enjoy 7.1-channel sound with any signal
source.
2 Number of surround back speakers
Though the surround back channel only consists of 1 channel of
playback signals for 6.1-channel sources (DTS-ES, etc.), we
recommend using two speakers. When using speakers with
dipolar characteristics in particular, it is essential to use two
speakers.
Using two speakers results in a smoother blend with the sound
of the surround channels and better sound positioning of the
surround back channel when listening from a position other than
the center.

[ As seen from above ]
Using surround back speakers greatly improves the positioning
of the sound at the rear. Because of this, the surround left and
right channels play an important role in achieving a smooth
transition of the acoustic image from the front to the back. As
shown in the diagram above, in a movie theater the surround
signals are also produced from diagonally in front of the listeners,
creating an acoustic image as if the sound were floating in space.
To achieve these effects, we recommend placing the speakers
for the surround left and right channels slightly more towards the
front than with conventional surround systems. Doing so
sometimes increases the surround effect when playing
conventional 5.1-channel sources in the 6.1 surround or DTS-ES
Matrix 6.1 mode. Check the surround effects of the various
modes before selecting the surround mode.

For the greatest sense of surround sound envelopment, diffuse
radiation speakers such as bipolar types, or dipolar types, provide
a wider dispersion than is possible to obtain from a direct
radiating speaker (monopolar). Place these speakers at either
side of the prime listening position, mounted above ear level.

• Consult the owner’s manual for your subwoofer for advice on

• If the surround speakers are direct-radiating (monopolar), then
place them slightly behind and at an angle to the listening
position and parallel to the walls at a position 2 to 3 feet above
ear level at the prime listening position.
• When using two surround back speakers, place them at the
back facing the front at a narrower distance than the front left
and right speakers. When using one surround back speaker,
place it at the rear center facing the front at a slightly higher
position 0 to 0.7 feet than the surround speakers.
• We recommend installing the surround back speaker(s) at a
slightly downward facing angle. This effectively prevents the
surround back channel signals from reflecting off the monitor or
screen at the front center, resulting in interference and making
the sense of movement from the front to the back less sharp.
This is recommended when mainly playing movies and using
regular single way or 2-way speakers for the surround speakers.

q Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is the multi-channel digital signal format developed
by Dolby Laboratories.
Dolby Digital consists of up to “5.1” channels – front left, front
right, center, surround left, surround right, and an additional
channel exclusively reserved for additional deep bass sound
effects (the Low Frequency Effects –LFE– channel, also called
the “.1” channel, containing bass frequencies of up to 120 Hz).
Unlike the analog Dolby Pro Logic format, Dolby Digital’s main
channels can all contain full range sound information, from the
lowest bass, up to the highest frequencies – 22 kHz. The signals
within each channel are distinct from the others, allowing
pinpoint sound imaging, and Dolby Digital offers tremendous
dynamic range from the most powerful sound effects to the
quietest, softest sounds, free from noise and distortion.

equipped with both “bit stream + PCM” and “PCM only”
digital outputs. In this case connect the “bit stream +
PCM” terminals to the AVR-686.
w Dolby Pro Logic II
• Dolby Pro Logic II is a new multi-channel playback format
developed by Dolby Laboratories using feedback logic steering
technology and offering improvements over conventional Dolby
Pro Logic circuits.
• Dolby Pro Logic II can be used to decode not only sources
recorded in Dolby Surround ( ) but also regular stereo sources
into five channels (front left, front right, center, surround left
and surround right) to achieve surround sound.
ENGLISH
Additional Information
• Whereas with conventional Dolby Pro Logic the surround
channel playback frequency band was limited, Dolby Pro Logic
II offers a wider band range (20 Hz to 20 kHz or greater). In
addition, the surround channels were monaural (the surround
left and right channels were the same) with previous Dolby Pro
Logic, but with Dolby Pro Logic II they are played as stereo
signals.
• Various parameters can be set according to the type of source
and the contents, so it is possible to achieve optimum decoding
(
page 51).
e Dolby Pro Logic IIx
Dolby Pro Logic IIx furthers the matrix decoding technology of
Dolby Pro Logic II to decode audio signals recorded on two
channels into up to 7.1 playback channels, including the surround
back channel. Dolby Pro Logic IIx also allows 5.1-channel
sources to be played in up to 7.1 channels.
The mode can be selected according to the source. The Music
mode is best suited for playing music, the Cinema mode for
playing movies, and the Game mode for playing games. The
Game mode can only be used with 2-channel audio sources.
Sources recorded in Dolby Surround
• These are sources in which three or more channels of surround
have been recorded as two channels of signals using Dolby
Surround encoding technology.
• Dolby Surround is used for the sound tracks of movies recorded
on DVDs, LDs and video cassette tapes, as well as for stereo
broadcast signals from FM radio, TV, satellite broadcasts and
cable TV.
• Decoding these signals with Dolby Pro Logic II makes it
possible to achieve multi-channel surround playback. The
signals can also be played on ordinary stereo equipment, in
which case they provide normal stereo sound.
• There are two types of DVD Dolby surround recording signals.
q 2-channel PCM stereo signals
w 2-channel Dolby Digital signals
• When either of these signals is input to the AVR-686, the
surround mode is automatically set to Dolby Pro Logic II when
the DOLBY/DTS SURROUND mode is selected.

[2] DTS Digital Surround
Digital Theater Surround (also called simply DTS) is a multichannel digital signal format developed by Digital Theater
Systems.
DTS offers the same “5.1” playback channels as Dolby Digital
(front left, front right, center, surround left and surround right) as
well as the stereo 2-channel mode. The signals for the different
channels are fully independent, eliminating the risk of
deterioration of sound quality due to interference between
signals, crosstalk, etc.
DTS features a relatively higher bit rate as compared to Dolby
Digital (1234 kbps for CDs and LDs, 1536 kbps for DVDs) so it
operates with a relatively low compression rate. Because of this
the amount of data is great, and when DTS playback is used in
movie theaters, a separate CD-ROM synchronized with the film
is played.
With LDs and DVDs, there is of course no need for an extra disc;
the pictures and sound can be recorded simultaneously on the
same disc, so the discs can be handled in the same way as discs
with other formats.
There are also music CDs recorded in DTS. These CDs include
5.1-channel surround signals (compared to two channels on
current CDs). They do not include picture data, but they offer
surround playback on CD players that are equipped with digital
outputs (PCM type digital output required).
DTS surround track playback offers the same intricate, grand
sound as in a movie theater, right in your own listening room.

1: DTS signals are recorded in the same way on CDs and LDs
as PCM signals. Because of this, the un-decoded DTS
signals are output as random “hissing” noise from the CD
or LD player’s analog outputs. If this noise is played with
the amplifier set at a very high volume, it may possibly
cause damage to the speakers. To avoid this, be sure to
switch the input mode to “AUTO” or “DTS” before playing
CDs or LDs recorded in DTS. Also, never switch the input
mode to “ANALOG” or “PCM” during playback. The same
holds true when playing CDs or LDs on a DVD player or
LD/DVD compatible player. For DVDs, the DTS signals are
recorded in a special way so this problem does not occur.
2: The signals provided at the digital outputs of a CD or LD
player may undergo some sort of internal signal processing
(output level adjustment, sampling frequency conversion,
etc.). In this case the DTS-encoded signals may be
processed erroneously, in which case they cannot be
decoded by the AVR-686, or may only produce noise.
Before playing DTS signals for the first time, turn down the
master volume to a low level, start playing the DTS disc,
then check whether the DTS indicator on the AVR-686
(
page 23) lights before turning up the master volume.
3: A DVD player with DTS-compatible digital output is required
to play DTS DVDs. A DTS Digital Output logo is featured on
the front panel of compatible DVD players. Recent DENON
DVD player models feature DTS-compatible digital output –
consult the player’s owner’s manual for information on
configuring the digital output for DTS playback of DTSencoded DVDs.

Additional Information
[3] DTS-ES Extended Surround™
DTS-ES Extended Surround is a new multi-channel digital signal
format developed by Digital Theater Systems Inc. While offering
high compatibility with the conventional DTS Digital Surround
format, DTS-ES Extended Surround greatly improves the 360degree surround impression and space expression thanks to
further expanded surround signals. This format has been used
professionally in movie theaters since 1999.
In addition to the 5.1 surround channels (FL, FR, C, SL, SR and
LFE), DTS-ES Extended Surround also offers the SB (Surround
Back, sometimes also referred to as “surround center”) channel
for surround playback with a total of 6.1 channels. DTS-ES
Extended Surround includes two signal formats with different
surround signal recording methods, as described below.
2 DTS-ES™ Discrete 6.1
DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 is the newest recording format. With it, all
6.1 channels (including the SB channel) are recorded
independently using a digital discrete system. The main feature
of this format is that because the SL, SR and SB channels are
fully independent, the sound can be designed with total freedom
and it is possible to achieve a sense that the acoustic images are
moving about freely among the background sounds surrounding
the listener from 360 degrees.
Though maximum performance is achieved when sound tracks
recorded with this system are played using a DTS-ES decoder,
when played with a conventional DTS decoder the SB channel
signals are automatically down-mixed to the SL and SR channels,
so none of the signal components are lost.
2 DTS-ES™ Matrix 6.1
With this format, the additional SB channel signals undergo
matrix encoding and are input to the SL and SR channels
beforehand. Upon playback they are decoded to the SL, SR and
SB channels. The performance of the encoder used at the time
of recording can be fully matched using a high precision digital
matrix decoder developed by DTS, thereby achieving surround
sound more faithful to the producer’s sound design aims than
with conventional 5.1- or 6.1-channel systems.
In addition, the bit stream format is 100% compatible with
conventional DTS signals, so the effect of the Matrix 6.1 format
can be achieved even with 5.1-channel signal sources. Of course
it is also possible to play DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 encoded sources
with a DTS 5.1-channel decoder.
Additional Information
When DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 or Matrix 6.1 encoded sources are
decoded with a DTS-ES decoder, the format is automatically
detected upon decoding and the optimum playing mode is
selected. However, some Matrix 6.1 sources may be detected
as having a 5.1-channel format, so the DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 mode
must be set manually to play these sources. (For instructions on
selecting the surround mode (
page 23.)
The DTS-ES decoder includes another function, the DTS Neo:6
surround mode for 6.1-channel playback of digital PCM and
analog signal sources.
2 DTS Neo:6™ surround
This mode applies conventional 2-channel signals to the high
precision digital matrix decoder used for DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 to
achieve 6.1-channel surround playback. High precision input
signal detection and matrix processing enable full band
reproduction (frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz or greater)
for all 6.1 channels, and separation between the different
channels is improved to the same level as that of a digital
discrete system.
DTS Neo:6 surround includes two modes for selecting the
optimum decoding for the signal source.
• DTS Neo:6 Cinema
This mode is optimum for playing movies. Decoding is
performed with emphasis on separation performance to
achieve the same atmosphere with 2-channel sources as with
6.1-channel sources.
This mode is effective for playing sources recorded in
conventional surround formats as well, because the in-phase
component is assigned mainly to the center channel (C) and the
reversed phase component to the surround (SL, SR and SB)
channels.
• DTS Neo:6 Music
This mode is suited mainly for playing music. Changes in the
sound quality are reduced by decoding with emphasis on the
front channel signals (FL and FR), and a natural sense of
expansion is given to the sound field by the effect of the
surround signals output from the center (C) and surround (SL,
SR and SB) channels.

ENGLISH
[4] DTS 96/24
The sampling frequency, number of bits and number of channels
used for recording of music, etc., in studios have been increasing
in recent years, and there are a growing number of high quality
signal sources, including 96 kHz/24-bit 5.1-channel sources.
For example, there are high picture/sound quality DVD video
sources with 96 kHz/24-bit stereo PCM audio tracks.
However, because the data rate for these audio tracks is
extremely high, there are limits to recording them on two
channels only, and since the quality of the pictures must be
restricted it is common to only include still pictures.
In addition, 96 kHz/24-bit 5.1-channel surround is possible with
DVD audio sources, but DVD audio players are required to play
them with this high quality.
DTS 96/24 is a multi-channel digital signal format developed by
Digital Theater Systems Inc. in order to deal with this situation.
Conventional surround formats used sampling frequencies of 48
or 44.1 kHz, so 20 kHz was about the maximum playback signal
frequency. With DTS 96/24, the sampling frequency is increased
to 96 or 88.2 kHz to achieve a wide frequency range of over 40
kHz.
In addition, DTS 96/24 has a resolution of 24-bits, resulting in the
same frequency band and dynamic range as 96 kHz/24-bit PCM.
As with conventional DTS Surround, DTS 96/24 is compatible
with a maximum of 5.1 channels, so sources recorded using DTS
96/24 can be played in high sampling frequency, multiple channel
audio with such normal media as DVD videos and CDs.
Thus, with DTS 96/24, the same 96 kHz/24-bit multi-channel
surround sound as with DVD-Audio can be achieved while
viewing DVD-Video images on a conventional DVD-Video player
( 1). Furthermore, with DTS 96/24 compatible CDs, 88.2
kHz/24-bit multi-channel surround can be achieved using normal
CD/LD players ( 1).
Even with the high quality multi-channel signals, the recording
time is the same as with conventional DTS surround sources.
What’s more, DTS 96/24 is fully compatible with the conventional
DTS surround format, so DTS 96/24 signal sources can be played
with a sampling frequency of 48 kHz or 44.1 kHz on conventional
DTS or DTS-ES surround decoders ( 2).
1 A DVD player with DTS digital output capabilities (for CD/LD
players, a player with digital outputs for conventional DTS
CDs/LDs) and a disc recorded in DTS 96/24 are required.
2 The resolution is 24 or 20 bits, depending on the decoder.
