PREPARATION STEPS
In order to enjoy sound and video images with this sound
system, follow the procedures as described below. See
each page for details.
Installing batteries in the remote control (P.3)
Speaker setup (P.9)
• Speaker placement (P.9)
• Installing the speakers (P.10)
Connections (P.12 – 17)
• Connecting TV and audio/video components (P.12)
• Connecting the antennas (P.14)
• Connecting the speakers (P.15)
• Connecting the AC power cord (P.17)
• Turning on the power (P.17)
Adjusting speaker output levels (P.18)
Before connecting components
• Do not connect this system or other components to the
mains power until all connections between the
components have been completed.
• Be sure all connections are made correctly, that is to
say, L (left) to L, R (right) to R, “+” to “+” and “–” to
“–”. Some components require different connection
methods and have different jack names. Refer to the
operation instructions for each component to be
connected to this system.
• Insert the plugs properly. The speakers may not output
any sound or may output noise if they are not inserted
properly.
• The name of jack corresponds to input selector.
• The VOLTAGE SELECTOR on the rear panel of AVRS80 and SW-S80 must be set for your local main
voltage BEFORE plugging into the AC main supply.
Voltages are 110-120V/220-240V AC, 50/60 Hz.

SPEAKER SETUP
Speaker placement
Refer to the following diagram when you place the
speakers.
The front speakers are used for the main source sound
plus effect sounds. The rear speakers are used for effect
and surround sounds. The center speaker is for the center
sounds (dialog, vocals, etc.).
Center speaker
PREPARATION
This system has been designed to provide the best soundfield quality with a 5-speaker system, using front left and
right speakers, rear left and right speakers and a center
speaker.
Front speaker (R)
Subwoofer
Rear speaker (R)
Notes
• If you do not use any of effect speakers (rear and/or center),
change the settings of SPEAKER SET items at the SET MENU
(p.36) to designate the signals to other terminals you connect
speakers to.
• If you use speakers (with different tonal qualities) instead of
the included speakers, 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.
1.8 m (6 feet)
Front speaker (L)
Rear speaker (L)
Front speakers
Place the front left and right speakers an equal distance
from the ideal listening position. The distance between
each speaker and each side of the video monitor should
also be the same.
Center speaker
Align the front face of the center speaker with the front
face of your video monitor. Place the speaker as close to
the monitor as possible (such as directly over or under the
monitor) and centrally between the front speakers.
Rear speakers
Place these speakers behind your listening position,
facing slightly inwards, nearly 1.8 m (6 feet) above the
floor.
Subwoofer
The position of the subwoofer is not so critical, because
low bass sounds are not highly directional. But it is better
to place the subwoofer near the front speakers. Turn it
slightly toward the center of the room to reduce wall
reflections.
Note
• Although the speaker system in this system is magnetically
shielded, it may still affect the color on the television monitor
when using this system near the television. Adjust the relative
positions of this system and the television if this happens.

Place the speaker on TV whose top is flat or on the floor
under the TV or inside the TV rack so that it is stabilized.
When placing the speaker on top of the TV, to prevent the
speaker from falling down, put the provided fasteners at
two points on the bottom of the speaker and the top of the
TV.
■ Mounting the front and rear

2
Hang the holes on the protruding screws.
Make sure that the screws are securely caught by the
narrow parts of the holes.
Cautions
• Do not place the speaker on top of the TV whose area is
smaller than the bottom area of the speaker. If placed, the
speaker may drop out causing an injury to you.
• Do not place the speaker on top of the TV with an inclination.
• Do not touch the adhesive surface after peeling off the seal as
this will weaken its adhesive strength.
• Thoroughly wipe clean the surface where the fastener is to be
applied. Note that adhesive strength is weakened if the surface
is dirty, oily or wet and that this may cause the center speaker
to drop.
■ Placing the front and rear
speakers
When placing the front and rear speakers on a flat
surface, attach the included non-skid pads to the corners
on the bottom of the speakers as shown below. This
prevents the speakers from sliding around.
70 mm
Warning
• Each speaker weighs 0.9 kg (11 lbs. 16 oz.). Do not mount
them on thin plywood or a wall with soft surface material. If
mounted, the screws may come out of the flimsy surface and
the speakers may fall. This damages the speakers or causes
personal injury.
• Do not install the speakers to a wall with nails, adhesives, or
any other unstable hardware. Long-term use and vibrations
may cause them to fall.
• To avoid accidents resulting from tripping over loose speaker
cables, fix them to the wall.
• Select a proper position on the wall to mount the speaker so
that no one will injure his/her head or face.

MOVIE THEATER 1/
Spectacle
This program creates the extremely wide sound field of a 70-mm movie theater. It precisely
reproduces the source sound in detail, making both the video and the sound field incredibly real.
This is ideal for any kind of video source encoded with Dolby Surround, Dolby Digital or DTS
(especially large-scale movie productions).
MOVIE THEATER 1/
Sci-Fi
This program clearly reproduces dialog and sound effects in the latest sound form of science
fiction films, thus creating a broad and expansive cinematic space amid the silence. You can
enjoy science fiction films in a virtual-space sound field that includes Dolby Surround, Dolby
Digital and DTS-encoded software employing the most advanced techniques.
MOVIE THEATER 2/
Adventure
This program is ideal for precisely reproducing the sound design of the newest 70-mm and
multichannel soundtrack films. The sound field is made to be similar to that of the newest movie
theaters, so the reverberations of the sound field itself are restrained as much as possible.
MOVIE THEATER 2/
General
This program is for reproducing sounds from 70-mm and multichannel soundtrack films, and is
characterized by a soft and extensive sound field. The presence sound field is relatively narrow.
It spatially spreads all around and toward the screen, restraining the echo effect of conversations
without losing clarity.
9
q/DTS/Enhanced
This program ideally simulates the multi-surround speaker systems of the 35-mm film theaters.
Dolby Pro Logic and Dolby Pro Logic II decoding, Dolby Digital decoding or DTS decoding
and digital sound field processing create precise effects without altering the original sound
orientation.
The surround effects produced by this sound field wrap around the viewer naturally from the
back to the left and right, and toward the screen.
9
q/DTS/Normal
The built-in decoder precisely reproduces sounds and sound effects from sources. The highly
efficient decoding process improves crosstalk and channel separation and makes sound
positioning smoother and more precise.
In this program, no DSP effect is applied.
8
y
• When you set this system in the standby mode, the current source and DSP program are memorized and are automatically selected
when you turn on the power again.
• When you select an input source, this system automatically selects the last DSP program used with that source.
• The “
” indicator does not light up when selecting program No. 9 except in Enhanced mode.
• The acoustics of your listening room affect the DSP program. It is recommended to use a room with fewer sound reflections to
maximize the effect created by the program.
Notes
• There are 9 programs with sub-programs available with this system. However, the selection depends on the input signal format and
not all sub-programs can be used with all input signal formats.
• When a monaural source is being played with PRO LOGIC/Normal or PRO LOGIC/Enhanced, or PRO LOGIC II Movie, sound will
be hardly heard from the front speakers and the rear speakers. Sound can only be heard from the center speaker. (If “1A CENTER”
on the SET MENU is set to NON, the center channel sound is output from the front speakers.)

Notes
• When an RDS station is being received, do not press
FREQ/RDS until one or more RDS mode indicators light up on
the front panel display. If you press the button before the
indicators light up on the front panel display, the mode cannot
be changed. This is because this system has not yet received all
of the RDS data on the station.
• RDS data not offered by the station cannot be selected.
• The RDS data service cannot be utilized by this system if the
received signal is not strong enough. In particular, the RT mode
requires a large amount of data to be received, so it is possible
that the RT mode may not be displayed even if other RDS
modes (PS, PTY, etc.) are displayed.
• RDS data cannot sometimes be received under poor reception
conditions. If so, press AUTO/MAN’L so that the “AUTO”
indicator goes off from the front panel display. Although the
reception mode is changed to monaural by this operation, when
you change the display to RDS mode, RDS data may be
displayed.
• If the signal strength is weakened by external interference
during the reception of an RDS station, the RDS data service
may be cut off suddenly and “...WAIT” will appear on the front
panel display.

3 SP DLY TIME (speaker delay
time)
Use this feature to adjust the delay of the center channel
sounds. This feature works when there is sound output
from the center speaker, with a source like Dolby Digital
or DTS, etc. Ideally, the center speaker should be the
same distance from the main listening position as the left
and right speakers.
However, in most home situations, the center speaker is
placed in line with the front speakers. By delaying the
sound from the center speaker, the apparent distance from
the center speaker to the main listening position can be
adjusted to make it seem the same as the distance
between the front left and right speaker to the listening
position. Adjusting the delay time for the center speaker
is especially important for giving depth to the dialogue.
Control range:
CENTER ............. 0 to 5 ms
Initial setting:
CENTER ............. 0 ms
Press j / i to increase or decrease the delay
of the center channel sounds.

GLOSSARY
Bitstream
LFE 0.1 channel
This is the digital form of multiple channel audio data
(eg., 5.1 channel) before it is decoded into its various
channels.
This channel is for the reproduction of low bass signals.
The frequency range for this channel is 20 Hz to 120 Hz.
This channel is counted as 0.1 because it only enforces a
low frequency range compared to the full-range
reproduced by the other 5 channels in a Dolby Digital or
DTS 5.1 channel systems.
CINEMA DSP
Since the Dolby Surround and DTS systems were
originally designed for use in movie theaters, their effect
is best felt in a theater having many speakers and
designed for acoustic effects. Since home conditions,
such as room size, wall material, number of speakers, and
so on, can differ so widely, it’s inevitable that there are
differences in the sound heard as well. Based on a wealth
of actually measured data, YAMAHA CINEMA DSP uses
YAMAHA original sound field technology to combine
Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Digital and DTS systems to
provide the visual and audio experience of movie theater
in the listening room of your own home.
Decoder
A decoder restores the coded signals on DVDs to normal.
This is called decoding.
Dolby Digital
This is a method of coding digital signals developed by
Dolby Laboratories. Apart from stereo (2-channel) audio,
these signals can also be 5.1-channel audio. A large
amount of audio information can be recorded on one disc
using this method.
Dolby Pro Logic
A surround system where a 4-channel audio track is
recorded as 2 channels and then is restored to 4 channels
for play. The surround channel is monaural and can
reproduce up to 7 kHz.
Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II is an improved technique used to
decode vast numbers of existing Dolby Surround
software. This new technology enables a discrete 5channel playback with 2 front channels, 1 center channel,
and 2 rear channels (instead of only 1 rear channel for
conventional Pro Logic technology). A music mode is
also available for 2-channel sources in addition to the
movie mode.
Linear PCM (pulse code modulation)
PCM is the usual digital method used for music CDs.
DVDs have a greater volume so they use linear PCM,
which has a higher sampling rate. Compressed PCM
signals are called packed PCM (PPCM).
Matrix 6.1
The system incorporates Matrix 6.1 decoder for Dolby
Digital and DTS multi-channel software that enables 6.1channel reproduction by adding the rear center channel to
existing 5.1-channel format. (The rear center channel is
created from rear left and right channels, and outputted
from virtual rear center speaker.) With this additional
channel, you can experience more dynamic and realistic
moving sound especially with scenes with “fly-over” and
“fly-around” effects.
Sampling frequency and number of
quantized bits
When digitizing an analog audio signal, the number of
times the signal is sampled per second is called the
sampling frequency, while the degree of fineness when
converting the sound level into a numeric value is called
the number of quantized bits.
SILENT CINEMA
YAMAHA has developed a natural, realistic sound effect
DSP algorithm for headphones.
Parameters for headphones have been set for each sound
field so that accurate representations of all the sound field
programs can be enjoyed using headphones.
Virtual CINEMA DSP
YAMAHA has developed a virtual CINEMA DSP
algorithm that allows you to enjoy DSP sound field
surround effects even without center or rear speakers by
using virtual rear speakers.
DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
This surround system is used in many movie theaters
around the world. There is good separation between the
channels, so realistic sound effects are possible.
Dynamic range
Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level
of sound that can be heard above the noise of the
equipment and the highest level of sound before distortion
occurs.
