PROFILE OF THIS UNIT
You are the proud owner of a Yamaha stereo receiver –an extremely sophisticated audio component. The Digital Sound Field
Processor (DSP) built into this unit takes full advantage of Yamaha’s undisputed leadership in the field of digital audio processing to
bring you a whole new world of listening experiences. Follow the instructions in this manual carefully when setting up your system,
and this unit will sonically transform your room into a wide range of listening environments –movie theater, concert hall, and so on.
In addition, you get incredible realism from Dolby-encoded video sources using the built-in Dolby Pro Logic Surround Decoder.
Rather than tell you about the wonders of digital sound field processing, however, let’s get right down to the business of setting up
the system and trying out its many capabilities. Please read this operation manual carefully and store it in a safe place for later
reference.
Digital Sound Field Processing
What is it that makes live music so good? Today’s advanced
sound reproduction technology lets you get extremely close to
the sound of a live performance, but chances are you’ll still
notice something missing: the acoustic environment of the live
concert hall. Extensive research into the exact nature of the
sonic reflections that create the ambience of a large hall has
made it possible for Yamaha engineers to bring you this same
sound in your own listening room, so you’ll feel all the sound of
a live concert.
What’s more, our technicians, armed with sophisticated
measuring equipment, have even made it possible to capture
the acoustics of a variety of venues such as an actual concert
hall, theater, etc. to allow you to accurately recreate one of
several actual live performance environments, all in your own
home.
Dolby Pro Logic Surround
The Dolby Pro Logic Surround Decoder program lets you
experience the dramatic realism and impact of Dolby Surround
movie theater sound in your own home. Dolby Pro Logic gets
its name from its professional-grade steering logic circuitry,
which provides greater effective channel separation for a much
higher degree of realism than the “passive” Dolby Surround
circuits found in today’s typical home audio/video equipment.
Dolby Pro Logic Surround provides a true center channel, so
that there are four independent channels, unlike passive Dolby
Surround which has in effect only three channels: left, right,
and rear. This center channel allows listeners seated in even
less-than-ideal positions to hear the dialog originating from
action on the screen while getting a stereo effect as well.
This Dolby Pro Logic Surround Decoder employs a digital
signal processing system. This system increases sound
stability at each channel and minimizes crosstalk between
channels compared to conventional analog Dolby signal
processing.
In addition, this unit features a built-in automatic input balance
control. This circuit always presents you the best surround
conditions without performing manual adjustments.
Dolby Pro Logic Surround + DSP
You can also enjoy a combination of Dolby Pro Logic Surround
and DSP in the sound field program “
PRO LOGIC
ENHANCED”.
It recreates the surround effect of a movie theater, effectively
duplicating its multiple surround loudspeaker system,
completely surrounding the listener with the sounds of the
action taking place on the screen.

SPEAKER SETTING-UP FOR THIS UNIT
SPEAKERS TO BE USED
This unit is designed to provide the best sound-field quality with a 5 speaker configuration. The speakers to be used with this unit
will be mainly front speakers, rear speakers, and a center speaker. (You can omit the center speaker. Refer to the “4-Speaker
Configuration” shown below.)
The front speakers are used for the output of the main source sound and the effect sound. They will probably be the speakers of
your present stereo speaker system. The rear speakers are used for the output of the effect sound. And the center speaker is
used for the output of the center sound (dialog etc.) encoded with the Dolby Surround. The rear and center speakers do not need
to be equal in power to the front speakers. However, all the speakers should have high enough power handling to accept the
maximum output of this unit.
SPEAKER CONFIGURATION
5-Speaker Configuration
4-Speaker Configuration
This configuration is the most effective and is the one that is
recommended. In this configuration, the center speaker is
necessary as well as the rear speakers. If the digital sound
field program is in DOLBY PRO LOGIC or DOLBY PRO
LOGIC ENHANCED mode conversations will be output from
the center speaker and the ambience will be excellent.
● Set the center mode to the “NORMAL” or “WIDE” position.
(For details, refer to page 11.)
The center speaker is not used in this configuration. If the
digital sound field program is in the DOLBY PRO LOGIC or
DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED mode, the center sound is
output from the left and the right front speakers. However, the
sound effect of other programs can be the same as that of the
5-speaker configuration.
● Be sure to set the center mode to the “PHANTOM” position.
(For details, refer to page 11.)

SPEAKER PLACEMENT
The recommanded speaker configuration, the 5-speaker configuration, will require two speaker pairs: front speakers (your normal
stereo speakers), and rear speakers, plus a center speaker. When you place these speakers, refer to the following.
Front:
In normal position. (The position of your present
stereo speaker system.)
Rear: Behind your listening position, facing slightly inward.
Nearly six feet (approx. 1.8 m) up from the floor.
Center: Precisely between the front speakers. (To avoid
interference with TV sets, use a magnetically shielded
speaker. If, however, it is not effective, keep the
speaker away from TV sets.)

USING DIGITAL SOUND FIELD PROCESSOR (DSP)
This unit incorporates a sophisticated, multi-program digital sound field processor, which allows you to expand and shape the audio
sound field from both the audio and video sources, for a theater-like experience in the listening/viewing room.
This digital sound field processor has 6 programs; 4 programs for digital sound field processing and 2 programs for the Dolby Pro
Logic Surround sound system (DOLBY PRO LOGIC and DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED). You can create an excellent audio
sound field by selecting the suitable program and adding desired adjustments. In addition, when the digital sound field program is
in the DOLBY PRO LOGIC or DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED mode, the built-in automatic input balance control functions. This
presents you the best surround condition without manual adjustment.

Description of Each Sound Field Program
The following list gives brief descriptions of the sound fields produced by each of the DSP programs. Keep in mind that most of
these are precise digital recreations of actual acoustic environments. The data for them was recorded at the locations described
using sophisticated sound field measurement equipment.
Note
The channel level balance between the left rear effect speaker and the right rear effect speaker may vary depending on the
sound field you are listening to. This is due to the fact that most of these sound field recreations are actual acoustic
environments.
PROGRAM
PRO LOGIC
PRO LOGIC
ENHANCED
FEATURE
This program is effective for playback of sources encoded with the Dolby Surround.
The employment of the digital signal processing system improves crosstalk and transfers the sound source
more smoothly and precisely, compared to the conventional type. A stable movie sound field is recreated.
This program is effective for playback of sources encoded with the Dolby Surround.
Enhancing the “Normal” Dolby Pro Logic, the DSP technology simulates the multi-surround speaker
systems of a 35 mm film theater, thus widening the surrounded-sound field with greater presence.
CONCERT VIDEO
This program is effective for music videos and gives excellent depth and clarity for vocals. For opera, the
orchestra and stage are ideally recreated, letting you feel as if you were in an actual concert hall.
MONO MOVIE
This program is designed specifically to enhance mono source programs. Compared to a strictly mono
setting, the sound image created in this mode is wider and slightly forward of the speaker pair, lending an
immediacy to the overall sound. It is particularly effective when used with old mono movies, news
broadcasts and dialog.
ROCK CONCERT
This program is suitable for rock music. A big, powerful sound is reproduced lively and dynamically.
CONCERT HALL
In this program, the center seems even more deeply behind the front speaker pair, creating an expansive,
large hall ambience.
Description of Dolby Pro Logic Surround
DOLBY PRO LOGIC SURROUND: This unit employs the
Dolby Pro Logic Surround system. This system is similar to
professional Dolby Stereo decoders used in movie theaters.
By employing a four-channel system, the Dolby Pro Logic
Surround system divides the input signals into four levels: the
left and right main channels, the center channel (to characterize
dialog), and the rear surround-sound channels (to characterize
sound effects, background noise and other ambient noise).
Dolby Surround is encoded on the sound track of commercially
available video cassettes and video discs as well. When you
play a source encoded with Dolby Surround on your home video
system, the Dolby Pro Logic Surround mode on this unit
decodes the signal and feeds the surround-sound effects.
The Dolby Pro Logic Surround mode may not be always
effective on video sources not encoded with Dolby Surround.
Manufactured under license from Dolby Laboratories Licensing
Corporation. Additionally licensed under one or more of the
following patents: U.S. numbers 3,632,886, 3,746,792, and
3,959,590; Canadian numbers 1,004,603 and 1,037,877.

Turn the DSP on, so that a DSP program name
appears on the display.
Notes
● If you prefer to cancel the DSP, press the EFFECT switch
again. The sound will be the normal 2-channel stereo
without surround sound effect.
●
In the CONCERT VIDEO, MONO MOVIE, ROCK
CONCERT and CONCERT HALL modes, no sound is
heard from the center speaker.
●
When a monaural sound source is played in the DOLBY
PRO LOGIC or DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED mode,
no sound is heard from the front speakers and the rear
speakers. Sound is heard only from the center speaker.
However, if the center mode is in the PHANTOM, the front
speakers output the sound of the center speaker.
●
When this unit is in the Dolby Pro Logic Surround mode, if
the main-source sound is considerably altered by
overadjustment of the BASS or TREBLE controls, the
relationship between the center and rear channels may
produce an unnatural effect.
