Remote Control
Quick Reference Guide
When finding it difficult to fit this unit onto the shelf, remove the side panels after removing the screws tightened on the side panels. Put this
sticker to cover the screw holes after tearing off the back side of the sticker.
Installing Batteries in the Remote Control
Insert the batteries in the correct direction by aligning the + and – marks on the batteries with the polarity illustrations (+ and –) inside the
battery compartment.
Change the batteries periodically. Do not use old batteries together with new ones.
Do not use different types of batteries (such as alkaline and manganese batteries) together. Read the packaging carefully as these different
types of batteries may have the same shape and color.
■ About changing batteries
Reset button
As the batteries wear out, the operating range of the remote control decreases and
the TRANSMIT indicator does not flash or its light becomes dim. When you
notice any of these conditions, change all of the batteries.
Notes:
• If the remote control is without batteries for more than 20 minutes, or if worn out
batteries remain in the unit, the contents of the memory may be cleared.
If the memory is cleared, insert new batteries and reprogram any functions that may have
been cleared.
• After you insert new batteries, be sure to push RESET in the battery compartment using
a ball point pen or similar object before using the remote control. (This does not clear the
contents of the memory.)
Using the Remote Control
The remote control transmits a directional infrared beam. Be sure to aim the remote control directly at the remote control sensor on the main
unit to operate. When the sensor is covered or there is a large object between the remote control and the main unit, the sensor cannot receive
signals. The sensor may not be able to receive signals properly when it is exposed to direct sunlight or a strong artificial light (such as a
fluorescent or strobe light). In this case, change the direction of the light or reposition the main unit to avoid direct lighting.

Speaker System Configurations
English
The most complete speaker configuration consists of eight speakers: the left and right Main speakers, a Center speaker, the left and right Rear
speakers, the left and right Front Effect speakers, and a Rear Center speaker. If you do not use eight speakers, you can direct the signals for
speakers that are not in your system to other speakers in your configuration. A Subwoofer can be used with any of these configurations to
produce a fuller sound.
Front Effect Speakers
Rear Speakers
Main Speakers
Center Speaker
Rear Center Speaker
Front Subwoofer
Rear Subwoofer
■ Eight or Seven Speaker Configuration
–Full Cinema DSP–
(
)
When you reproduce feature film software, this configuration fully expresses the
powerful and realistic sound qualities of 70 mm multitrack audio. The dialogue is
positioned as if it were coming from directly on the screen, the sound effect is
positioned slightly behind the screen, and the soundtrack music is positioned even
further behind the screen to express the width and depth of the overall presentation.
This configuration makes the most of this unit’s capability.
The Rear Center speaker is useful for playback of 6-channel Digital Surround.
■ Six Speaker Configuration –Hi Fi DSP–
This configuration is used the most for audio playback with HiFi DSP. It does not
position the dialogue sound as well as a seven or eight speaker configuration.
However, it creates a dynamic DSP (Digital Sound Field Processor) sound field
which adds depth to the sound.
For this speaker configuration, change SET MENU item 1A. CENTER SP to
“NONE” and 1D. REAR CT SP to “NONE”.
■ Five Speaker Configuration –Standard 5.1 Channel–
This configuration does not express the height of the sound field as well as the
seven or eight speaker configuration. However, it positions the dialogue sound as
coming directly from the screen.
For this speaker configuration, change SET MENU item 1F. FRNT EFCT SP to
“NONE” and 1D. REAR CT SP to “NONE”.
■ Four Speaker Configuration
–Minimum Requirement–
In this configuration, the Center speaker signals and Front Effect speaker signals
are directed to the left and right Main speakers.
For this speaker configuration, change SET MENU item 1A. CENTER SP to
“NONE,” item 1F. FRNT EFCT SP to “NONE,” and item 1D. REAR CT SP to
“NONE”.

Introduction
Hookups
Connecting Audio Components
Before you connect any components, disconnect the power supply to all the components you plan to connect including this unit and
determine which jacks are for the left and right channels and for input and output.
When you connect other YAMAHA audio component (such as a CD player or changer, MD deck, or tape deck), connect to terminals with
the same number labels. Yamaha applies this labelling system to all its products.
In the hookup illustrations on the following pages:
■ Connecting to digital jacks
Preparations
This unit has digital jacks for direct transmission of digital signals through either coaxial or fiber optic cables. You can use the digital jacks
to input PCM, DTS, and Dolby Digital bitstreams. When you connect components to both the COAXIAL and OPTICAL jacks (for CD and
CABLE) priority is given to the input signals from the COAXIAL jack. All digital input jacks are acceptable for 96 kHz/24 bit digital
signals.
■ About the dust protection cap
Basic Operation
Pull out the cap from the optical jack before you connect the fiber optic cable. Do
not discard the cap. When you are not using the optical jack, be sure to put the cap
back in place. This cap protects the jack from dust.
The OPTICAL jacks on this unit conform to the EIA standard. If you use a fiber
optic cable that does not conform to this standard, this unit may not function
properly.
■ Connecting a turntable
These jacks are for connecting a turntable with an MM or high output MC
cartridge. If you have a turntable with a low output MC cartridge, use an inline
boosting transformer or MC-head amplifier when connecting to these jacks.
The GND terminal does not electrically ground the turntable. It simply reduces
noise in the signal. In some cases, you may hear less noise if you do not connect to
the GND terminal.
■ Connecting a CD player
Advanced
Operation
• The COAXIAL CD and OPTICAL CD jacks are available for a CD player
which has coaxial or optical digital outputs.
• When you connect a CD player to both the COAXIAL CD and OPTICAL CD
jacks, priority is given to the input signals from the COAXIAL CD jack.
■ Connecting an MD or DAT deck
• When you connect a recorder to this unit, keep the deck’s power on while using
this unit. If the power is off, this unit may distort the sound from other
component.
Additional
Information
• When you record from source component connected to this unit while this unit’s
power is off, the recorded sound may be distorted. To avoid this problem, turn
on this unit.
Appendix
• When you connect a CD recorder to both the analog and digital input and output
jacks, priority is given to the digital signals.

Hookups
Connecting Video Components
Introduction
Before you connect any components, disconnect the power supply to all the components you plan to connect including this unit and
determine which jacks are for the left and right channels and for input and output. After you finish all hookups, check them again to make
sure they are correct.
■ About the video jacks
Preparations
There are three types of video jacks. Video signals input through the VIDEO jacks are the conventional composite video signals. Video
signals input through the S VIDEO jacks are separated into luminance (Y) and color (C) video signals. The S-video signals achieve high
quality color reproduction.
Video signals input through the COMPONENT VIDEO jacks are separated into luminance (Y) and color difference (PB/CB, PR/CR) video
signals. The jacks are also separated into three for each signal. The labels of the component video jacks may be different depending on the
component (e.g. Y, CB, CR / Y, PB, PR / Y, B-Y, R-Y/ etc.). Component video signals provide the best quality in picture reproduction.
Composite VIDEO jack
S VIDEO jack
COMPONENT VIDEO jacks
If your video component has an S-video output or component video output, you can
connect it to this unit. Connect the S-video signal output jack on your video
component to the S-VIDEO jack or connect the component signal output jacks on
your video component to the COMPONENT VIDEO jacks.

Connecting Speakers
Introduction
This section explains how to connect speakers to this unit. After you finish connecting your speakers, use the SET MENU to change the
signal output settings according to the number and size of the speakers in your configuration.
Before connecting any speaker cords, identify which terminals are for the right and left channels and also the + and – polarities. If you
connect speakers with the wrong polarity (+ to –), this unit will not reproduce clear sound.
■ Using speaker cords
Preparations
A speaker cord is actually a pair of insulated cables running side by side. One of
the cables is colored or shaped differently, perhaps with a stripe, groove, or ridge.
To make sure you always connect speakers with the correct polarity, determine the
difference between the cables of your speaker cord, make a note of which cable
you plan to use for which polarity (+ and –), and always connect the speaker cords
consistently.
1 Strip off 9 mm (3/8 in.) of an inch of insulation from the ends of the cables.
2 Twist the exposed wires of the cable together to prevent short circuits.
3 Loosen the terminal knob by turning it counterclockwise.
Banana Plug
4 Insert only the exposed portion of the cable into the slot in the side of the
terminal, and tighten the terminal knob.
Note:
Basic Operation
• If your speaker cords have banana plugs, tighten the terminal knob and insert the
plug into the end of the terminal. (Except for Europe and U.K. models)
Caution:
• Connect the speaker cords with care to avoid creating a short circuit. If you turn on
the power and there is a short circuit, this unit may be damaged even though the
protection circuit automatically shuts off the power.
(Except for Europe and U.K. models)
■ About the q RF (AC-3) signal input jack <For China and General models only.>
If your LD player has an q RF (AC-3) signal output jack, connect it to the q RF (AC-3) input jack on this unit. For this connection,
change SET MENU item 7D. COAXIAL IN (10) to “LD-RF”. If q RF (AC-3) and analog signals are input at the same time, priority is
given to the RF signals. When you want to reproduce q RF (AC-3) signals, set the input mode to “D.D. RF” using INPUT MODE.
Note:
Advanced
Operation
• q RF (AC-3) signals cannot be output using the REC OUT selector. When you record
sound or images from an LD player, be sure to connect the player to either the DIGITAL
OPTICAL or analog AUDIO jacks.
Caution:
Appendix
Additional
Information
• Even if you connect an LD player with an q RF (AC-3) output jack to this unit, you
cannot reproduce Dolby Digital sound from all LD discs. You must playback an LD disc
encoded with Dolby Digital signals in order to take advantage of the Dolby Digital
sound.

Main
Speaker
Main
Speaker
Place the left and right Main speakers an equal distance from the main listening
position.
If you have a TV or video monitor in your system, the distance of each speaker
from each side of the TV or video monitor should be the same.
■ Placing the Center speaker
Preparations
TV or Video
monitor
If you have a TV or video monitor in your system, align the front face of the
Center speaker with the front face of the monitor. Place the speaker as close to the
monitor as possible, such as directly over or under the monitor. If you place the
speaker under the monitor, the Front Effect speakers can adjust the height of the
sound to correspond with the action on the screen (depending on the listener’s
position). If you have a projection screen in your system, place the Center speaker
under the screen. Be sure to align the speaker with the center of the screen.

■ Placing the Front Effect, Rear, and Rear Center
speakers
The Front Effect speakers should be placed about 0.5~1m (1~3 feet) outside the
Main speakers and in the front of the room. They should be turned toward the main
listening position. Place the Rear speakers in the back of the room so they face the
main listening position. The Rear speakers can be placed farther apart than the
Front Effect speakers. The Front Effect and Rear speakers should be placed about
1.8m (6 feet) above the floor.
Once you begin listening to programs, continue to adjust the speaker placement
until you obtain a balanced sound from the Main speakers and the Front Effect and
Rear speakers.

speaker provides precise dialogue localization.
When you use a projection screen with your system, the Front Effect speakers
provide better effect quality. The CINEMA-DSP sound field programs raise the
sound from the Center speaker upward and provide natural sound corresponding
with the video images.

Rear Subwoofer
Place the Front Subwoofer near the Main speakers. Turn it slightly toward the
center of the room to reduce wall reflections.
If you use a Rear Subwoofer, place it behind the main listening position. The
placement of the Rear Subwoofer is not critical because of the ultralow frequencies
of the sound being reproduced.
By adding a high quality Subwoofer to the speaker system configurations shown
on page 9, you can enjoy more powerful and realistic movie effects, even if your
Main speakers are large.
Notes:
Appendix
• If you use different brands of speakers (with different tonal qualities) in your
configuration, the tone of a moving human voice and other types of sound may not shift
smoothly. We recommend that you use speakers from the same manufacturer or speakers
with the same tonal quality.
You can also adjust the output levels and equalization of your effect speakers using the
SET MENU.
• If you are using small speakers, the addition of a Subwoofer will reinforce the sound
effects of movies.

DGTL: ........... This unit only selects digital signals input through the OPTICAL
jacks.
ANALOG: ..... This unit only selects signals input through the ANALOG jacks. This
unit will not select Dolby Digital RF or DTS signals.
Notes:
• If digital signals are input from both the COAXIAL and OPTICAL jacks, the digital signal from the COAXIAL jack is selected.
• When AUTO is selected, this unit automatically determines the type of signal. If this unit detects a Dolby Digital or DTS signal, the decoder
automatically switches to the appropriate setting and reproduces 5.1 channel source.
• The sound output may be interrupted for some LD and DVD players in the following situation: The input mode is set to AUTO. A search is performed
while playing the disc encoded with Dolby Digital or DTS, and then disc playing is restored. The sound output is interrupted for a moment because the
digital signal was selected again.
■ Notes on playing a source encoded with a DTS signal
• If the digital output data of the player has been processed in any way, you may not be able to perform DTS decoding even if you make
a digital connection between this unit and the player.
• If you play a source encoded with a DTS signal and set the input mode to ANALOG, this unit reproduces the noise of an unprocessed
DTS signal. When you want to play a DTS source, be sure to connect the source to a digital input jack and set the input mode to
AUTO or DTS.
• If you switch the input mode to ANALOG while playing a source encoded with a DTS signal, this unit reproduces no sound.
• If you play a source encoded with a DTS signal and set the input mode to AUTO, there will be a moment of noise while the unit
recognizes the DTS signal and turns on the DTS decoder. This is not a malfunction. You can avoid this by setting the input mode to
DTS beforehand.
• If you continue to play a source encoded with a DTS signal with the input mode setting left to AUTO, this unit automatically switches
to the “DTS-decoding” mode to prevent noise from being generated during subsequent operation. (The “t” indicator lights up on
the front panel display.) The “t” indicator will flash immediately after playback of a source encoded with a DTS signal has
finished. Only a source encoded with a DTS signal can be played back while this indicator is flashing. If you want to play a normal
PCM source soon, set the input mode back to AUTO.
• The “t” indicator will flash when the input mode is set to AUTO and a search or skip operation is performed while playing back a
source encoded with a DTS signal. If this status continues for 30 or more seconds, the unit will automatically switch from the “DTSdecoding” mode to PCM digital signal input mode and the “t” indicator will go out.
■ Notes on playing an LD or DTS CD source
• For LD software that does not contain a digital soundtrack, connect the LD player to the analog jacks and set the input mode to AUTO
or ANALOG.
• If the LD player is transmitting a signal by a non-standard method, this unit cannot detect the Dolby Digital or DTS signal. In this case,
the decoder automatically switches to PCM or analog.
• Some A/V components such as LD players output different audio signals through their analog and digital jacks. Change the input mode
as necessary.
• While you are operating the LD player and playing a disc encoded with a Dolby Digital signal, if you switch from the pause or chapter
forwarding function to normal playback, you may hear the PCM or analog sound an instant before the Dolby Digital signal is played.

Basic Playback
Selecting a Sound Field Program
Introduction
You can enhance your listening experience by selecting a DSP sound field program. The 25 DSP sound field programs are divided into 12
DSP program groups.
10KEY/DSP
1 Set 10KEY/DSP on the remote to DSP.
2 Press the DSP button on main unit and rotate the Multi jog knob to select the
desired sound field program.
Notes:
Preparations
• If a DTS or Dolby Digital signal is input when the input mode is set to “AUTO”,
the sound field program automatically switches to the appropriate decoding
program.
• Choose a sound field program based on your listening preference, not on the name
of the program. The acoustics of your listening room affect the sound field
program. Minimize the sound reflections in your room to maximize the effect
created by the program.
6.1/ES
If you want to utilize the Rear Center speaker
with a 5.1 channel program source, press 6.1/
ES.
• When you select an input source, the main unit automatically selects the last sound
field program used with that source.
• When you turn off the main unit, the current source and sound field program are
memorized and are automatically selected when you turn on the power again.
• When high rate 96 kHz sampling digital signals are output from source equipment,
the DSP sound field cannot operate on the source sounds. In this case, the sounds
are reproduced as normal 2-channel stereo.

Operation
You can experience the virtual CINEMA DSP sound field by setting the 1C. REAR L/R SP item in the SET MENU to “NONE.” The sound
field processing is changed to the Virtual CINEMA DSP mode according to the selected sound field program. The Virtual CINEMA DSP
allows you to enjoy the virtual sound fields without Rear speakers. Signals for Rear channels are output from the Main speakers. You can
also listen to HP (Headphone) CINEMA DSP by connecting your headphones to the PHONES jack while the DSP sound fields are on.
When high rate 96 kHz sampling digital signals are output from source component, the Virtual CINEMA DSP and HP CINEMA DSP cannot
operate on the source sounds.
Note:
Additional
Information
• This unit is not set in the virtual CINEMA DSP mode even if “1C REAR L/R SP” is set to NONE in the following cases:
– when the 8ch Stereo, DOLBY DIGITAL/Normal or DTS/Normal program is selected;
– when the sound effect is turned off;

• Do a test recording before you start an actual recording.
• When this unit’s power is off, you cannot record between other component
connected to this unit.
• Operating BASS and TREBLE, BASS EXTENSION, BALANCE, VOLUME,
and DSP programs do not affect the recorded signal.
■ Special considerations when recording DTS
software
The DTS signal is a digital bitstream. Attempting to digitally record the DTS
bitstream will result in noise being recorded. Therefore, if you want to use this unit
to record sources that have DTS signals recorded on them, the following
considerations need to be made.
For DTS encoded LDs, DVDs, and CDs:
Only 2-channel analog audio signals may be recorded as follows:
• LDs:
Set your Laser Disc player’s left and right outputs to the analog soundtrack.
• DVDs:
Use the disc menu to set the DVD player’s mixed 2-channel left and right
audio outputs to the PCM or Dolby Digital soundtrack.
• CDs:
The DTS signal recorded on CDs can only be output as a digital bitstream,
and therefore cannot be recorded.

13 SP DELAY TIME
Use this feature to adjust the delay of the Center and the Rear Center channel sounds.
This feature works when this unit decodes DTS or Dolby Digital signals. Ideally, the
Center speaker and the Rear Center speaker should be the same distance from the
main listening position as the left and right Main speakers. However, in most home
situations, the Center speaker or the Rear Center speaker is placed in line with the
Main speakers or the Rear speakers. By delaying the sound from the Center speaker
and the Rear Center speaker, the apparent distance from the Center speaker and the
Rear Center speaker to the main listening position can be adjusted to make it seem the
same as the distance between the left and right Main speaker, and the left and right
Rear speakers to the listening position. Adjusting the delay time for the Center
speaker is especially important for giving depth to the dialogue.
You can adjust the delay time from 0 ms to 5 ms for the Center speaker and
from 0 ms to 30 ms for the Rear Center speaker.
• Increasing the delay 1 ms simulates moving the speakers about 30 cm (one
foot) farther away from the listening position.

Digital Sound Field Processing (DSP)
English
Understanding Sound Fields
A sound field is defined as the “characteristic sound reflections of a particular space.”
In concert halls and other music venues, we hear early reflections and reverberations
as well as the direct sound produced by the artist(s). The variations in the early
reflections and other reverberations among the different music venues is what gives
each venue its special and recognizable sound quality.
Yamaha sent teams of sound engineers all around the world to measure the sound
reflections of famous concert halls and music venues, and collect detailed sound field
information such as the direction, strength, range, and delay time of those reflections.
Then we stored this enormous amount of data in the ROM chips of this unit.

■ Recreating a sound field
Recreating the sound field of a concert hall or an opera house requires localizing the
virtual sound sources in your listening room. The traditional stereo system that uses
only two speakers is not capable of recreating a realistic sound field. Yamaha’s DSP
requires four effect speakers to recreate sound fields based on the measured sound
field data. The processor controls the strength and delay time of the signals output
from the four effect speakers to localize the virtual sound sources in a full circle
around the listener.
The DSP sound field programs can be classified in two types based on the sound field
processing method: programs that use early reflections only and programs that use
both early reflections and reverberation.
■ E/R (Early Reflection)
Each sound field is distinguished by the structure of the reflected sound. The increased processing capability of DSP technology enables
Yamaha engineers to incorporate even minute reflections with long delay times into the sound field data.
■ 4ch REV. (Four Channel Reverberation)
This type of program consists of early reflections and high quality digital reverberation processing. Reverberation is the most important
element for recreating the sound field of a church, for example. To recreate a realistic spatial sound image from reverberation data, Yamaha
has adapted the four-channel-output reverberation technology.
■ Illustration of the virtual sound sources and echo patterns
The virtual sound sources and echo patterns for the DSP sound field programs are shown below. The illustration of the virtual sound sources
shows early reflection sound only and the illustration of the echo patterns shows both reflected sound and reverberation.

Sound Design of CINEMA-DSP
Filmmakers intend the dialog to be located right on the screen, the effect sound a little farther back, the music spread even farther back, and
the surround sound around the listener. Of course, all of these sounds must be synchronized with the images on the screen.
CINEMA-DSP is an upgraded version of YAMAHA DSP specially designed for movie soundtracks. CINEMA-DSP integrates the DTS,
Dolby Digital, and Dolby Pro Logic surround sound technologies with YAMAHA DSP sound field programs to provide the surround sound
field. It recreates the most complete movie sound design in your audio room. In CINEMA-DSP sound field programs, Yamaha’s exclusive
DSP processing is added to the right and left Main and Center channels, so the listener can enjoy realistic dialogue, depth of sound, smooth
transition between sound sources, and a surround sound field that goes beyond the screen.
When a DTS or Dolby Digital signal is detected, the CINEMA-DSP sound field processor automatically chooses the most suitable sound
field program for that signal.

■ Movie theater programs
The six-channel soundtracks found on 70 mm film produce precise sound field localization and rich, deep sound without using matrix
processing. This unit’s Movie Theater 70 mm Programs provide the same quality of sound and sound localization that six-channel
soundtracks do. The built-in Dolby Digital decoder brings the professional quality sound designed for movie theaters into your home. With
this unit’s Movie Theater program, you can recreate a dynamic sound that gives you the feeling of being at a public theater in your living
room using the Dolby Digital technology.

Parameter Descriptions
You can adjust the values of certain digital sound field parameters so the sound fields are recreated accurately in your listening room. Not all
of the following parameters are found in every program.
INIT. DLY (Initial Delay)
[P. INT. DLY for the presence sound field]
Control Range 1 – 99 msec
Advanced
Operation
Function .............. This parameter changes the apparent distance from the source sound by adjusting the delay between the direct sound
and the first reflection heard by the listener.
Description ......... The smaller the value, the closer the sound source seems to the listener. The larger the value, the farther the apparent
distance seems. For a small room, this parameter would be set to a small value, and for a large room, it would be set to
a large value.

ROOM SIZE
[P. ROOM SIZE for the presence sound field]
Control Range 0.1 – 2.0
Description ......... As the sound is repeatedly reflected around a room, the larger the hall is, the longer the time between the original
reflected sound and the subsequent reflections. By controlling the time between the reflected sounds, you can change
the apparent size of the virtual venue. Changing this parameter from one to two, doubles the apparent length of the
room.

LIVENESS
Control Range 0 – 10
Function .............. This parameter adjusts the reflectivity of the virtual walls in the hall by changing the rate at which the early reflections
decay.
Description ......... The early reflections of a sound source decay much faster in a room with acoustically absorbent wall surfaces than in
one which has highly reflective surfaces. A room with acoustically absorbent surfaces is referred to as “dead,” while a
room with highly reflective surfaces is referred to as “live.” The LIVENESS parameter lets you adjust the early
reflection decay rate, and thus the “liveness” of the room.
