Overview
Overview
It is generally accepted that in order to fully enjoy the benefits of surround sound at home, you must endure the agony of
wiring and installing a great number of speakers in the hope that your listening room will give you the same kind of
surround sound experience as your local movie theater.
Yamaha YSP-500 Digital Sound Projector challenges this preconception that complicated speaker setup and troublesome
wiring go hand-in-hand with the enjoyment of multi-channel surround sound.
This slimline unit does away with the need for complicated wiring and installation worries, leaving you with a unit that is
not only easy to set up, but is also capable of reproducing the kind of powerful surround sound you have been waiting for
from its built-in 2 woofers and 16 full-range small speakers.
You can fine-tune the parameters of this unit to adjust the delay time for separate sound beams, resulting in highly
directional sound that comes in on the listening position from all directions.
The YSP-500 projects sound beams containing surround sound information for the front right (R), front left (L), surround
right (SR), and surround left (SL) speaker positions, which are reflected off the walls of your listening room before
reaching the actual listening position. With the addition of center (C) sound beams, this Digital Sound Projector creates
true-to-life 5.1-channel surround sound that makes you feel as if there are actual speakers around the room.
Sit back and enjoy the real sound experience of this simple, yet stylish Digital Sound Projector.

Features
My Surround
In addition to the above mentioned beam modes, this unit
is equipped with My Surround beam mode that allows you
to enjoy surround system even in a small listening area.
My Surround is a function integrated and optimized with
DiMAGIC’s Euphony technology and Yamaha’s Beam
reproduction system.
My Beam
This unit employs My Beam that ensures a clear sound in
a noisy environment. You can adjust the beam angle
manually or automatically using the supplied remote
control to the maximum of 30°, rightward and leftward.
Versatile Remote Control
The supplied remote control comes with preset remote
control codes used to control the DVD player, VCR, cable
TV tuner, and digital satellite tuner connected to this unit.
In addition, the remote control is equipped with the macro
capability that enables a series of operations with the press
of a single button.
Compatibility with the Newest Technologies
This unit employs decoders compatible with Dolby
Digital, DTS, Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Pro Logic II, and
DTS Neo:6.
◆ Dolby Digital
This is the standard audio signal format used on various
digital media such as DVD, Blu-ray, and HD DVD. This
surround technology delivers high-quality digital audio for up
to 5.1 discrete channels to produce a directional and more
realistic effect.
◆ DTS
This is the standard audio signal format used on various
digital media such as DVD, Blu-ray, and HD DVD. This
surround technology delivers high-quality digital audio for up
to 5.1 discrete channels to produce a directional and more
realistic effect.
◆ Dolby Pro Logic
This sophisticated, matrix decoding technology up-converts
any 2-channel source audio to a 5.1-channel full bandwidth
playback, resulting in a surround sound experience.
◆ Dolby Pro Logic II
This is a redesigned version of Dolby Pro Logic that employs
2 stereo surround channels, a subwoofer, and a greatly
enhanced steering logic. This improved technology provides
an exceptionally stable sound field that simulates 5.1 to a
much greater degree than the original Dolby Pro Logic.
◆ DTS Neo:6
This technology decodes the conventional 2-channel sources
for 6-channel playback, enabling playback with the full-range
channels with higher separation. Music mode and Cinema
mode are available to play back music and movie sources
respectively.
INTRODUCTION
Digital Sound Projector™
The Digital Sound Projector technology allows one slim
unit to control and steer multiple channels of sound to
generate multi-channel surround sound, thus eliminates
the need for satellite loudspeakers and cabling normally
associated with conventional surround sound systems.
This unit also employs the beam modes that let you enjoy
the surround sound (5 Beam, Stereo plus 3 Beam, 3 Beam,
and My Surround), stereo playback, and My Beam.
AUTO SETUP (IntelliBeam)
This unit employs the automatic sound beam and acoustic
optimization technology with the aid of the supplied
IntelliBeam microphone. You can avoid troublesome
listening-based speaker setup and achieve highly accurate
sound beam adjustments that best match your listening
environment.

AUTO SETUP (INTELLIBEAM)
AUTO SETUP (IntelliBeam)
This unit creates a sound field by reflecting sound beams on the walls of your listening room and by broadening the
cohesion of all the channels. Just as you would arrange the speaker position of other audio systems, you need to set the
beam angle to enjoy the best possible sound from this unit.
This unit employs the beam optimization and sound optimization features with the aid of the supplied IntelliBeam
microphone, allowing you to avoid troublesome listening-based setup and achieving highly accurate sound adjustments
that best match your listening environment. We call these two features “IntelliBeam” generically.
Beam optimization:
This feature optimizes the beam angle so that the parameter best matches your listening environment.
Sound optimization:
This feature optimizes the beam delay, volume, and quality so that the parameters best match your listening environment.

This unit performs a series of checks to optimize the beam angle, delay, volume, and quality. You can choose to optimize
all or part of the parameters.

AUTO SETUP (IntelliBeam)
Installing the IntelliBeam microphone
The supplied IntelliBeam microphone collects and analyzes the sound that this unit produces in your actual listening
environment. Follow the procedure below to connect the IntelliBeam microphone to this unit and make sure that the
IntelliBeam microphone is placed in a proper location and that there are no large obstacles between the IntelliBeam
microphone and the walls in your listening room.
Notes
• After you have completed the AUTO SETUP procedure, be sure to disconnect the IntelliBeam microphone.
• The IntelliBeam microphone is sensitive to heat.
– Keep it away from direct sunlight.
– Do not place it on top of this unit.
• Do not connect the IntelliBeam microphone to an extension cable as doing so may result in an inaccurate sound optimization.
• An error may occur during the AUTO SETUP procedure if the IntelliBeam microphone is not properly placed in your listening room.
To avoid the possibility of an error:
– Do not place the IntelliBeam microphone to the extreme right or left from the center of this unit.
– Do not place the IntelliBeam microphone within 1.8 m (6.0 ft) from the front of this unit.
– Do not place the IntelliBeam microphone more than 1 m (3.3 ft) upper or lower from the center height of this unit.
• Make sure that there are no obstacles between the IntelliBeam microphone and the walls in your listening room as these objects
obstruct the path of sound beams. However, any objects that are in contact with the walls will be regarded as a protruding part of the
walls.
• The best possible results are achieved if the IntelliBeam microphone is placed at the same height as your ears would be when you are
seated in your listening position. However, if this is not possible, you can manually fine-tune the sound beam angle and balance the
sound beam output levels using MANUAL SETUP (see page 56) once the AUTO SETUP procedure is completed.
• If a subwoofer with adjustable volume and crossover/high-cut frequency controls is connected to
CROSSOVER

■ Dolby Digital
■ DTS Digital Surround
Dolby Digital is a digital surround sound system that gives
you completely independent multi-channel audio. With 3
front channels (left, center, and right) and 2 surround
stereo channels, Dolby Digital provides 5 full-range audio
channels. With an additional channel especially for bass
effects, called LFE (low-frequency effect), the system has
a total of 5.1-channels (LFE is counted as 0.1-channel).
By using 2-channel stereo for the surround channels, more
accurate moving sound effects and surround sound
environment are possible than with Dolby Surround. The
wide dynamic range (from maximum to minimum
volume) reproduced by the 5 full-range channels and the
precise sound orientation generated using digital sound
processing provide listeners with excitement and realism
previously unheard of.
With this unit, any sound environment from monaural up
to a 5.1-channel configuration can be freely selected for
your enjoyment.
DTS digital surround was developed to replace the analog
soundtracks of movies with a 6-channel digital sound
track, and is now rapidly gaining popularity in movie
theaters around the world. DTS, Inc. has developed a
home theater system so that you can enjoy the depth of
sound and natural spatial representation of DTS digital
surround in your home. This system produces practically
distortion-free 6-channel sound (technically, left, right,
and center channels, 2 surround channels, plus an LFE
0.1-channel as a subwoofer, for a total of 5.1 channels).
The unit incorporates a DTS-ES decoder that enables 6.1channel reproduction by adding the surround back channel
to existing 5.1-channel format.
■ 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 5-channel
playback with 2 front left and right channels, 1 center
channel, and 2 surround left and right channels (instead of
only 1 surround channel for conventional Pro Logic
technology). Music and Game modes are also available for
2-channel sources in addition to the Movie mode.
■ Dolby Surround
Dolby Surround uses a 4-channel analog recording system
to reproduce realistic and dynamic sound effects: 2 front
left and right channels (stereo), a center channel for dialog
(monaural), and a surround channel for special sound
effects (monaural). The surround channel reproduces
sound within a narrow frequency range.
Dolby Surround is widely used with nearly all video tapes
and laser discs, and in many TV and cable broadcasts as
well. The Dolby Pro Logic decoder built into this unit
employs a digital signal processing system that
automatically stabilizes the volume on each channel to
enhance moving sound effects and directionality.
88 En
■ DTS Neo:6
Neo:6 decodes the conventional 2-channel sources for 6channel playback by the specific decoder. It enables
playback with the full-range channels with higher
separation just like digital discrete signal playback. Two
modes are available: Music mode for playing music
sources and Cinema mode for movies.
■ EUPHONY
Euphony is a revolutionary sound field reproduction
system implemented with state-of-the-art sound
technologies developed under the basic concept of
enjoying beautiful sound. It can reproduce surround sound
optimized without depending on the number of input
channels, the number of speakers (two or more speakers)
or the speaker’s dimensions. In addition, it features steady
center localization. It also can reproduce the surround
sound for the headphones with natural sound and “out-ofhead” localization so that the listener feels an expanded
sound and will not tire, even when listening to music or a
movie for long time.
Glossary
■ LFE 0.1-channel
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
reproduction by the other 5/6 channels in Dolby Digital or
DTS 5.1/6.1-channel systems.
■ PCM (Linear PCM)
Linear PCM is a signal format under which an analog
audio signal is digitized, recorded, and transmitted
without using any compression. This is used as a method
of recording CDs and DVD audio. The PCM system uses
a technique for sampling the size of the analog signal per
very small unit of time. Standing for pulse code
modulation, the analog signal is encoded as pulses and
then modulated for recording.
■ SRS TruBass
SRS TruBass is a psychoacoustic bass enhancement
technology developed by SRS Labs, Inc. for speakers and
headphone systems that delivers bass up to an octave
below the physical capabilities of the speaker’s driver.
SRS TruBass technology takes advantage of a
spontaneous tendency of the human ears to infer lowrange audio data when presented with higher-frequency
harmonic signals. As a result, our ears can hear the
original low-range sound that the speaker system is
incapable of producing.
