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. English PROFILE OF THIS UNIT 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. 5 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.) Front L Center Front R Front L Dialogue Dialogue Surround sound Surround sound Rear L Rear R Rear L Front R Rear R 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.) Front R Center Front L TV set Rear R Rear L 6 Before attempting to make any connections to or from this unit, be sure to first switch OFF the power to this unit and to any other components to which connections are being made. English CONNECTIONS CONNECTIONS WITH OTHER COMPONENTS When making connections between this unit and other components, be sure all connections are made correctly, that is to say L (left) to L, R (right) to R, “+” to “+” and “–” to “–”. Also, refer to the owner’s manual for each component to be connected to this unit.

If the connections are faulty, no sound will be heard from the speakers. Make sure that the polarity of the speaker wires is correct, that is, + and – markings are observed. If these wires are reversed, the sound will be unnatural and will lack bass. Do not let the bare speaker wires touch each other and do not let them touch the metal parts of this unit as this could damage this unit and/or speakers. ● Use speakers with the specified impedance shown on the rear of this unit. ● Note for front speaker connection: One or two speaker systems can be connected to this unit. If you connect only one speaker system, connect it to either the SPEAKERS A or B terminals. How to Connect: Red: positive (+) Black: negative (–) ➀ ➀ Press up the tab. ➁ Insert the bare wire. ➂ ➁ [Remove approx. 5mm (1/4”) insulation from the speaker wires.] ➂ Press down the tab and secure the wire. ABOUT THE ACCESSORY TERMINALS AC OUTLET(S) 8 (U.S.A., Canada, Europe and General models) ............................................................2 SWITCHED OUTLETS (Australia and U.K. models) .............................................................. 1 SWITCHED OUTLET Use these to connect the power cords from your components to this unit. The power to the SWITCHED outlets is controlled by this unit’s POWER switch or the provided remote-control transmitter’s POWER key. These outlets will supply power to any component whenever this unit is turned on. The maximum power (total power consumption of components) that can be connected to the SWITCHED AC OUTLET(S) is 100 watts. GND terminal (For turntable use) Connecting the ground wire of the turntable to this terminal will minimize hum, but in some cases better results may be obtained with the ground wire disconnected. ● ● Each antenna should be connected to the designated terminals correctly, referring to the following figure. 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.
