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 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 sources encoded with Dolby Surround using the built-in Dolby Pro Logic Surround
Decoder.
Please read this operation 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
This unit employs a Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoder similar
to professional Dolby Stereo decoders used in many movie
theaters. By using the Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoder, you
can experience the dramatic realism and impact of Dolby
Surround movie theater sound in your own home. Dolby Pro
Logic employs a four channel five speaker system. The Pro
Logic Surround system divides the input signal into four levels:
the left and right main channels, the center channel (used for
dialog), and the rear surround sound channels (used for sound
effects, background noise, and other ambient noises). The
center channel allows listeners seated in even less-than-ideal
positions to hear the dialog originating from the action on the
screen while experiencing good stereo imaging.
Dolby Surround is encoded on the sound track of pre-recorded
video tapes, laser discs, and some TV/cable broadcasts. When
you play a source encoded with Dolby Surround on this unit,
the Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoder decodes the signal and
distributes the surround-sound effects.
This Dolby Pro Logic Surround Decoder employs a digital
signal processing system. This system improves the stability of
sound at each channel and minimizes crosstalk between
channels, so that positioning of sounds around the room is
more accurate compared with conventional analog signal
processing systems.
In addition, this unit features a built-in automatic input balance
control. This always assures you the best performance without
manual adjustment.

Corporation. “Dolby”, “AC-3”, “Pro Logic” and the double-D

Dolby Pro Logic Surround + DSP
Dolby Surround sound system shows its full ability in a large
movie theater, because movie sounds are originally designed
to be reproduced in a large movie theater using many
speakers. It is difficult to create a sound environment similar to
that of a movie theater in your listening room, because the
room size, materials of inside walls, the number of speakers,
etc. of your listening room is much different from those of a
movie theater.
Yamaha DSP technology made it possible to present you with
nearly the same sound experience as that of a large movie
theater in your listening room by compensating for lack of
presence and dynamics in your listening room with its original
digital sound fields combined with Dolby Surround sound field.
6
The combination of Dolby Pro Logic Surround and DSP is used
on the sound field program “
PRO LOGIC ENHANCED”.
CINEMA DSP
The YAMAHA “CINEMA DSP” logo indicates these programs are
created by the combination of Dolby Pro Logic and YAMAHA
DSP technology.

SPEAKER SETUP
SPEAKERS TO BE USED
This unit is designed to provide the best sound-field quality with a 5 speaker configuration. The most effective speakers to use with
this unit are main speakers, rear speakers and a center speaker. You may omit the center speaker. (Refer to the “4-Speaker
Configuration” shown below.)
The main speakers are used for the main source sound plus the effect sounds. They will probably be the speakers from your
present stereo system. The rear speakers are used for the effect and surround sounds, and the center speaker is for the center
sounds (dialog etc.) within programs encoded with Dolby Surround. The center speaker needs to be equal in power to the main
speakers, although the rear speakers should not be equal. 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 recommended one.
In this configuration, the center speaker is necessary as well as
the rear speakers. If the program DOLBY PRO LOGIC or
DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED is selected, conversations
will be output from the center speaker and the ambience will be
excellent.
• Set the center channel mode to the “NORMAL” or “WIDE”
position. (For details, refer to page 23.)
The center speaker is not used in this configuration. If the
program DOLBY PRO LOGIC or DOLBY PRO LOGIC
ENHANCED is selected, the center sound is output from the
left and the right main 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 channel mode to the “PHANTOM”
position. (For details, refer to page 23.)

SPEAKER PLACEMENT
The recommended speaker configuration, the 5-speaker configuration, will require two speaker pairs: main speakers (your normal
stereo speakers), and rear speakers, plus a center speaker. When you place these speakers, refer to the following.
Main:
In normal position. (The position of your present
stereo speaker system.)
Rear: Behind your listening position, facing slightly inward.
Nearly 1.8m (approx. 6 feet) up from the floor.
Center: Precisely between the main speakers. (To avoid
interference with TV sets, use a magnetically shielded
speaker.)

(SURROUND)
This terminal is for connecting with the input terminal of an
amplifier for driving a subwoofer.
When the input signals to this unit are in normal 2-channel
stereo, this terminal outputs frequencies below 150 Hz from
the main and center channels. When discrete signals are input
to this unit and are selected as the input source, this terminal
outputs signals from the subwoofer channel.
SUB
WOOFER
REAR (SURROUND) OUTPUT terminals
CENTER OUTPUT terminal
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.
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 AUX terminals of a power amplifier or an
integrated amplifier) to these terminals.
Note
Output level of signals from these terminals are adjusted
by the use of VOLUME control on the front panel or VOLUME
keys on the remote control transmitter.

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.

Orient so that the best
reception is obtained.
* The AM loop antenna should be placed apart from the main unit. The antenna may be hung on a wall.
* The AM loop antenna should be kept connected, even if an outdoor AM antenna is connected to this unit.
GND terminal
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.

This unit incorporates a sophisticated, multi-program digital sound field processor. The processor allows you to electronically expand
and change the shape of the audio sound field from both audio and video sources, creating a theater-like experience in your
listening room. You can create an excellent audio sound field by selecting a suitable sound field program (this will, of course, depend
on what you will be listening to), and adding desired adjustments.
English
USING DIGITAL SOUND FIELD PROCESSOR (DSP)
In addition, this unit incorporates a Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoder for multi-channel sound reproduction of sources encoded with
Dolby Surround. The operation of the Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoder can be controlled by selecting a corresponding DSP
program including a combined operation of the Yamaha DSP and the Dolby Pro Logic Surround.
Brief Overview of Digital Sound Field Programs
The following list gives you a brief description 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 these sound fields was recorded at actual
locations using sophisticated sound field measurement equipment.
Note
The channel level balance between the left and right rear effect speakers 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
FEATURE
PRO LOGIC
This program is used for playback of sources encoded with Dolby Surround.
The application of a sophisticated digital signal processing system reduces crosstalk and directs or steers
the sound source more smoothly and precisely, as compared to conventional types.
PRO LOGIC
ENHANCED
This program is also used 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 movie theater. This effect creates a wide surround sound field, and expands the
sound stage with an improved presence image. This program is used for musical based movies, as well as
drama and comedy based movies.
CONCERT VIDEO
This program is effective for music videos and gives excellent depth and clarity for vocals. For opera, the
orchestra and stage are ideally recreated, letting you feel as if you were in an actual concert hall.
MONO MOVIE
This program is designed specifically to enhance mono source programs. Compared to a strictly mono
setting, the sound image created in this mode is wider and slightly forward of the speaker pair, lending an
immediacy to the overall sound. It is particularly effective when used with old mono movies, news
broadcasts and dialog.
STADIUM
This program gives you long delays between direct sounds and effect sounds, and extraordinarily
spacious feel of a large stadium.
DISCO
This program recreates the acoustic environment of a lively disco in the heart of a very lively city. The
sound is dense and highly concentrated. It is also characterized by a high-energy, “immediate” sound.
ROCK CONCERT
This program is ideally suited for rock music. You will experience a very dynamic or lively sound field.
CONCERT HALL
In this program, the center will appear to be deep behind the main speakers, creating an expansive large
hall ambience. Orchestra and opera music are suited for this sound field.

heard from the main speakers and the rear speakers.
Sound is heard only from the center speaker. However, if
the center channel mode is in PHANTOM, the main
speakers output the sound of the center channel.
● When this unit’s Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoder is used,
if the main-source sound is considerably altered by
overadjustment of the BASS or TREBLE control, the
relationship between the center and rear channels may
produce an unnatural effect.
