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 totally
new 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.
Please read this owner’s 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.
Furthermore, 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 front and rear channel separation for
a much higher degree of realism than the “passive”
Dolby Surround circuits found in less sophisticated
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 Dolby Pro Logic with two modes
of Digital Sound field processing. These combinations
expand the surround effect. One is the “ENHANCED” Dolby Pro Logic Surround which recreates the surround effect of the 35 mm film movie
theater. The other is the sound field program ”70 mm
MOVIE THEATER”. Which recreates the listening
experience of a 70mm film theater.
CINEMA DSP
The YAMAHA “CINEMA DSP” logo indicates
these programs are created by the combination of
Dolby Pro Logic and YAMAHA DSP technology.
Directional Enhancement Circuit + DSP
The newly featured directional enhancement circuit
expands and focuses the digital sound field by
emphasizing position of sound.
This effect puts you in the midst of the action, while
centering and focusing your attention to the screen.
This circuit is available on the sound field program
“TV THEATER” and “SPORTS”.

SPEAKER SETUP FOR THIS UNIT
SPEAKERS TO BE USED
This unit is designed to provide the best sound-field quality with a fivespeaker configuration. The speakers to be
used with this unit will be front speakers, rear speakers, and a center speaker.
The front speakers are used for the main source sound. These are usually a much larger, high-quality loudspeaker
than you will use for the surround sound effects. The center speaker is used for the center sound (dialog, etc.)
encoded with the Dolby Surround. And the rear speakers are used for special effects that enhance the surround
sound. The rear and center speakers do not need to be equal to the front speakers. However, all the speakers
should have high enough power handling to accept the maximum output of this unit.
SPEAKER CONFIGURATION
Five-Speaker Configuration
Four-Speaker Configuration
This configuration is the most effective and recommended one. In this configuration, the center speaker
is used for dialog when you select the digital sound
field program DOLBY PRO LOGIC, DOLBY PRO
LOGIC ENHANCED, 70mm MOVIE THEATER, TV
THEATER, or SPORTS.
• Set the center channel mode to the “NORMAL” or
“WIDE” position. (For details, refer to page 19.)
The center speaker is not used in this configuration. If
the digital sound field program DOLBY PRO LOGIC,
DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED, 70mm MOVIE
THEATER, TV THEATER, or SPORTS is selected, the
center sound along with the front effects are output
from the left and the right front speakers. However,
the sound effect of other programs can be the same as
that of the other configurations.
• Be sure to set the center channel mode to the
“PHANTOM” position. (For details, refer to page
19.)

SPEAKER PLACEMENT
The recommended speaker configuration, the five-speaker configuration, will require two speaker pairs: front
speakers and rear speakers, plus a center speaker. When you place these speakers, refer to the following:
In normal position. (The position of a standard
stereo speaker setup)
Center: Precisely between the front speakers. (To avoid
interference with TV sets, use a magnetically
shielded speaker.) When two center speakers are
used, place these to the right and left of your TV
set or video monitor.

amplifier and subwoofer are in the same unit.
GND terminal (For turntable use)
This terminal is for center channel line output.
There is no connection to this terminal when you
use the built-in amplifier.
However, if you drive a center speaker with an
external power amplifier, connect the input
terminal of the external amplifier to this terminal.
3 REAR OUTPUT terminals
These terminals are for rear channel line output.
There is no connection to these terminals when
you use the built-in amplifier.
However, if you drive rear speakers with an
external stereo power amplifier, connect the input
terminals of the external amplifier (MAIN IN or

ANTENNA CONNECTIONS
• Each antenna should be connected to the designated terminals correctly, referring to the following diagram.
• Both AM and FM indoor antennas are included with this unit. In general, these antennas will probably provide
sufficient signal strength. Nevertheless, a properly installed outdoor antenna will give clearer reception than an
indoor one. If you experience poor reception quality, an outdoor antenna may result in improvement.

For maximum safety and minimum interference,
connect the GND terminal to a good earth ground.
A good earth ground is a metal stake driven into
moist earth.
Notes:
• When connecting the indoor FM
antenna, insert its connector into the
FM ANT terminal firmly.
• If you need an outdoor FM antenna to
improve FM reception quality, either
300-ohm feeder or coaxial cable may be
used. In locations troubled by electrical
interference, coaxial cable is preferable.

ADJUSTMENT BEFORE OPERATION
SPEAKER BALANCE ADJUSTMENT
This procedure lets you adjust the sound output level balance between the front, center, and rear speakers using
the built-in test tone generator. With this adjustment, the sound output level heard at the listening position will be
the same from each speaker. This is important for the best performance of the digital sound field processor.
The adjustment of each speaker output level should be done at your listening position with the remote control
transmitter. Otherwise, the result may not be satisfactory.

USING THE 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 10 programs; 8 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 DOLBY PRO LOGIC, DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED, or 70␣ mm MOVIE THEATER program is selected, 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
FEATURE
This program is effective for playback of sources encoded with Dolby Surround. The employment of the digital signal processing system reduces crosstalk and transfers the sound
source more smoothly and precisely, compared to conventional types. A stable movie sound
field is recreated.
PRO LOGIC ENHANCED
This program is effective for playback of sources encoded with 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 surround-sound field with greater
presence.
70 mm MOVIE THEATER
This program is effective for playback of sources encoded with Dolby Surround.
The Yamaha DSP technology is ideally combined with the Dolby Pro Logic to present you the
incredible listening experience of the 70 mm movie theater. This program is ideal for precisely reproducing the sound design of the newest movies. The sound field is made according to the design of the latest movie theaters, so the reverberations of the sound field itself
are restrained as much as possible. The three-dimensional feeling of the sound field is
emphasized and dialog is precisely oriented on the screen. You can enjoy watching sciencefiction, action, and adventure movies with this program.
TV THEATER
This program is suitable for dramas, variety or music programs, etc. Much surround effect
can be gained for stereo sources.
SPORTS
This program is furnished with a tight sound field in which the sound will not spread excessively on the front side, but the rear surround produces a dynamic sound expansion. This
program is most suitable for sports programs encoded with Dolby Surround
STADIUM
This program gives you long delays between direct sounds and effect sounds, and the
extraordinarily spacious feel of a large stadium.
ROCK CONCERT
This program is suitable for rock music. A big, powerful sound is reproduced lively and
dynamically.
JAZZ CLUB
This is a small, cosy jazz club with a low ceiling. The sound is very close and intimate.
CHURCH
This program recreates the acoustic environment of a modern church with a high pointed
dome and columns along the sides. This interior produces very few primary reflections.
CONCERT HALL
In this program, the center seems deep 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 system in 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.

Notes:
• If you prefer to cancel the DSP, press the EFFECT
switch. The sound will be the normal 2-channel stereo
without surround sound effect.
• When STADIUM, ROCK CONCERT, JAZZ CLUB,
CHURCH, or CONCERT HALL is selected, no sound is
heard from the center speaker.
• When a monaural sound source is played with DOLBY
PRO LOGIC or DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED,
no sound is heard from the front speakers and the rear
speakers. Sound is heard only from the center speaker.
However, if the center channel mode is in PHANTOM,
the front speakers output the sound of the center channel.
• When this unit’s Dolby Pro Logic Surround system is
used, if the main-source sound is considerably altered by
over adjustment of the BASS or TREBLE controls, the
relationship between the center and rear channels may
produce an unnatural effect.
If desired, adjust the delay time and the output level of
each speaker. (For details, refer to the corresponding
descriptions on page 31, 32.)
Dolby Surround AC-3
Dolby Surround AC-3 is the next generation of multichannel consumer audio. It uses a low bit-rate audio
encoding scheme, creating a single composite data
stream that contains five high-quality full-range
channels, plus a sixth low frequency effect channel
(called “5.1”).
This unit is equipped with 5 CH DISCRT terminals for
Dolby Surround AC-3.
To listen to a 5 CH DISCRT SOURCE:
Press the LD/TV button so that “5 CH DISCRT”
appears on the display. To cancel it, press the switch
again.
LD/TV
30
• When you switch to “5 CH DISCRT” mode, the
Digital Sound Field processor features of this unit
are no longer available. The CENTER MODE
switch, DELAY TIME switch and EFFECT switch
also no longer work.
• Signals connected to the 5CH DISCRT INPUT are
not output to the tape decks or video recorders.
To record the signals from an LD player, you must
connect the player to the LD/TV terminals.
ENGLISH
The following adjustments can be done on the remote control transmitter as well as on the front panel.
Adjustment of the CENTER LEVEL
You can adjust the sound output level of the center
channel speaker even if the output level is already set
in “Speaker balance adjustment” on page 18.

remote control transmitter. As you change the volume
level, the front panel LCD will display the value. If
you press the “+” or “–” key continuously, the level
will continuously change except for a momentary
pause at the preset point (80).
• The center channel speaker is used only in DOLBY
PRO LOGIC, DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED,
70 mm MOVIE THEATER, TV THEATER and
SPORTS modes.
• Once the output level is adjusted, the level value
will be the same in all the digital sound field
programs.
Note:
If the digital sound field program STADIUM, ROCK
CONCERT, JAZZ CLUB, CHURCH, or CONCERT
HALL is selected, the CENTER LEVEL control will not
function.
Adjustment of the REAR LEVEL
You can adjust the sound output level of the rear
speakers even if the output level is already set in
“Speaker balance adjustment” on page 18.
• Once the output level is adjusted, the level value
will be the same in all the digital sound field
programs.
LEVEL
REAR
Press the “+” or “–” REAR LEVEL key on the remote
control transmitter, the level value changes continuously. However, the value stops changing momentarily at the preset point (80).
