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.

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.
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 18.)
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 18.)

SPEAKER BALANCE ADJUSTMENT
This procedure lets you adjust the sound output level balance between the main, center, and rear speakers using the built-in test
tone generator. When this adjustment is performed, 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 and the Dolby Pro Logic Surround
decoder.
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 DIGITAL SOUND FIELD PROCESSOR (DSP)
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.
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.

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.

function, refer to the corresponding instruction in your
component’s manual.
33
LEARNING NEW CONTROL FUNCTIONS (When the lid is open)
This is a learning remote control transmitter. The shaded keys in the illustration shown below can be programmed to “learn”
control functions from other remote control transmitters. By learning key-functions from other remote control transmitter, this unit can
then be used in place of one or more other remote control transmitters, thus making operation of your various audio and video
components more convenient.
Some of the “learning-capable” keys are originally empty and others have already been preset with functions to control this unit and
other Yamaha components. You can store new functions to them (in place of preset functions) as desired.
* See page 39 for the learning method.
* See page 41 for clearing a learned function (or all learned functions).
Note
If the memory capacity of the remote control transmitter becomes full, no further learning is possible even if some learning-capable
keys are not occupied with new functions. If, for example, you store Yamaha codes only into this remote control transmitter, up to
about 20 functions can be stored. Store new functions to the learnable-capable keys which are useful for you.
Keys which can have three functions (1, 2, 3, 4)
1
In the “Learning-capable” keys, the keys numbered 1–4 in the
illustration at left can have three functions. This is because they
have three memory areas (A, B and C). (One function per area.)
You can store new functions into the area B and C, and use three
functions on a key by switching the memory areas with the A/B/C
switch. (Area A cannot learn a new function.)

Note
The area A of all keys cannot learn new functions. To store new
functions to these keys, store them onto the area B or C.
Empty keys (1, 2)
These are empty keys. Each key can learn a function from another
remote control transmitter.
For example, the TV key is useful for storing the function of your
TV’s power switch, and the VCR key can be used for your VCR’s
power switch.
Note
If a key which has a preset function learns a new function, the
preset function will not be deleted, but disabled. When the
learned function is cleared, the preset function is restored. (For
information on clearing a learned function, refer to page 41.)
About the marks shown on the remote control
transmitter
The marks on the remote control transmitter signify functions of
keys, input sources, etc.
Examples)
(tape):
(disc):
(radio wave):
Shows tape deck, VCR, etc.
Shows CD player, LD player, etc.
Shows tuner, TV/BS tuner, etc.
These marks are helpful for storing new functions.
Examples)
• The area B of keys 1 is suitable for storing functions to
control your VCR.
• The area B of keys 3 is suitable for storing functions to
control your TV/BS tuner.

control transmitters into an empty area of those keys. (Refer
to page 39 for the learning method.)
36
•
While playing an audio/video unit, if you want to operate
another unit by using the remote control transmitter (for
example, if you want to rewind a tape on your VCR while
listening to a CD), you should open the lid of the remote
control transmitter and use the A/B/C switch and the
corresponding keys.
(If you press an input selector key with the lid closed to
change the functions of the OPERATION CONTROL keys to
the functions for controlling a VCR, the input of currently
playing CD source is canceled.)
MACRO OPERATIONS (When the lid is closed)
Preset macro keys are originally preset with macros. If you
prefer, however, you can change the contents of a macro key
by storing a desired series of functions on it. You can store up
to seven functions onto a macro key. (See page 40 for the
learning method.)
“Macro” is a command which defines a sequence of several
operations.
The keys shown in the illustrations below (as preset macro
keys) are also preset with macros, in addition to individual
functions.
Each macro key is preset so that simply pressing it alone will
carry out several functions of other keys on this remote control
transmitter sequentially. (To know what key functions are
sequentially carried out by pressing each preset macro key,
see the next page.)
Macros can be used only when the lid is closed and the
MACRO switch is set to “SLOW” or “QUICK”. (If “OFF” is
selected, no macro will function even if the lid is closed.)
Setting the MACRO switch
OFF: In this position, no macro will function even if the lid of
remote control transmitter is closed.
QUICK: In this position, when a macro key is pressed, each
command is transmitted at 0.5 second intervals.
SLOW: In this position, when a macro key is pressed, each
command is transmitted at 3 second intervals.

• If it occurs that this unit will not receive the second command
because the internal operation of the first command takes a
long time, set the MACRO switch to the “SLOW” position, or
add no function or repeat the same command between the
first command and the next command.
• If you will program the power on/off switching function of TV,
VCR, etc. as part of a macro sequence, note that it switches
the current mode to the other (“on” to “off”, or “off” to “on”).
For example, when you press the macro key, if the power of
TV, VCR, etc. is already on, the power will be turned off
even though you may not want it to do so.

Once you press a macro key, you must keep the remote
control transmitter directed at the main unit’s remote control
sensor until the remote control transmitter finishes
transmitting all command signals of the macro key.
You can use the OPERATION CONTROL keys also while

with functions from other remote control transmitters, no
further learning is possible.
● If the lid is closed while learning and about 5 seconds pass,
the TRANSMIT/LEARN indicator flashes rapidly and the

A new macro can be programmed onto any preset macro key in place of preset functions. (See page 37 to know what keys are
preset macro keys.) You can make as many as 13 new macro keys. A macro key can learn as many as seven functions of other
keys.
Note
If you store a continuous command such as lowering of volume level, it will become a short command when it is carried out as a part
of macro.

Battery replacement
If you find that the remote control transmitter must be used
closer to the main unit, the batteries are weak. Replace both
batteries with new ones.
Notes
● Use only AA, R6, UM-3 batteries for replacement.
● Be sure the polarities are correct. (See the illustration inside
the battery compartment.)
● Remove the batteries if the remote control transmitter will
not be used for an extended period of time.
● If batteries leak, dispose of them immediately. Avoid
touching the leaked material or letting it come in contact with
clothing, etc. Clean the battery compartment thoroughly
before installing new batteries.
● After you change batteries, make sure to press the RESET
button inside the battery compartment.
42
Notes
● There should be no large obstacles between the remote
control transmitter and the main unit.
● If the remote control sensor is directly illuminated by strong
lighting (especially an inverter type of fluorescent lamp etc.),
it might cause the remote control transmitter not to work
correctly. In this case, reposition the main unit to avoid
direct lighting.
