Introduction
Using Yamaha’s unique DSP technology, the RP-U100 can bring excitement and realism
to any audio source by simulating the acoustic environments of concert halls, movie theaters, and so on with only two speakers. With its stylish, vertical design, the RP-U100
allows you to use various audio sources, including your PC, CD player, MD or tape
recorder, and the built-in AM/FM tuner, as shown below.

Although the RP-U100 can be used as part of a typical hi-fi system, connecting it to your
PC via the USB port, and running the supplied RP-U100 Application Software, allows
you to remotely control the RP-U100 from your PC and edit the sound field programs.

surround sound system using only
two speakers. Virtual 3D, which is used by the RP-U100’s sound field programs, simulates
the surround effect provided by rear and center speakers, creating “virtual” surround
speakers, as shown, so even with only two front speakers, you can still enjoy surround
sound.
Digital Sound Field Processing (DSP)
When you listen to a performance in a concert hall, jazz club, or other live music venue,
you not only hear the direct sound coming from the musical instruments and singers, but
also the “early reflections” and natural reverberation. Early reflections are the initial
sound waves that bounce off the floor, ceiling, and walls. Natural reverberation is made
up of sound waves that gradually attenuate as they bounce repeatedly off multiple
surfaces.
Early sound

Reverberation
Direct sound

reflections
Since the way you hear early reflections and reverberation depends on the shape and size
of the building as well as the material and construction of the walls and ceiling, each venue
has its own unique “sound,” called its “sound field.” At Yamaha, we have measured all the
elements that make up a typical sound field—direction and level of the reflections, bandwidth characteristics, and delay times—at famous concert halls and opera houses around
the world. The information gained in this process has been converted into programs that
can be reproduced using Yamaha’s DSP technology. Using its on-board DSP, the RP-U100
can process any audio source and recreate the atmosphere of the original venue.

Connecting an FM
Antenna
Recommended Speaker
Placement
Connect an FM antenna
to the FM ANTENNA
connector (FM 75Ω
UNBAL).
Use the supplied indoor FM antenna only
in areas with exceptionally good reception.
Use the supplied F-type adapter to connect an outdoor FM antenna with an
F-type connector.
For best performance, place the left and
right speakers either side of your computer monitor, as shown below, and position them so that their fronts are flush. To
get the best from the sound field programs
and surround effects, the left and right
speakers and the listener should be positioned so as to form a triangle with a 3:4
ratio, so if, for example, the speakers are
60 cm (23.5") apart, the listener should be
80 cm (31.5") away from each speaker.
Bass performance can be extended by connecting a subwoofer, such as the Yamaha
YST-SW45, to the SUB WOOFER OUT.

Troubleshooting
Important Information About Using the FM/AM Tuner
Computer equipment uses high-frequency digital circuits that may cause interference on
radio and television equipment located nearby. If interference is a problem with the
RP-U100, and you cannot obtain good reception, or the auto tuning functions don’t
work properly, try the following.
• Move the indoor FM or AM loop antenna as far away from the computer and monitor
as physically possible and find the position and direction at which reception is the best.
• FM outdoor antennas offer the best performance and should be used when the good
reception is not available. Be sure to use coaxial cable to connect to an outdoor
antenna. Use the supplied F-type adapter to connect an outdoor FM antenna with an
F-type connector.
• If you cannot obtain good AM reception using only the AM loop antenna, connect 5 to
10 meters (16 to 32 ft.) of ordinary PVC coated wire to the AM connector on the
RP-U100, feed it through a window, or other outlet, and extend it horizontally. Be sure
to also connect the AM loop antenna. Using another piece of wire, connect the GND
connector on the RP-U100 to a good ground point, such as a grounding rod. Never
connect the RP-U100 to a metal gas or oil pipe, which would cause a safety hazard, or
a plastic water pipe.

DOLBY DIGITAL (*1)
This is a theater acoustics format developed by Dolby Labs USA for home use. "Dolby Digital" is a method to reproduce
completely independent audio utilizing digital compression technology on 5.1 channels consisting of 3 front channels and
2 rear channels for a total of 5 channels plus a low frequency effect channel. The conventional "Dolby Pro Logic" format
3 front channels and 1 rear channel mixed into 2 stereo channels, by a matrix circuit. Dolby Digital creates a 3dimensional surround effect of superior quality.

Virtual 3D Technology
Reproducing a Dolby Digital or Dolby Pro Logic source requires the use of a total of 4-6 speakers placed before and
behind the listener, using a substantial amount of space that may not always be available.
The RP-U100 features Yamaha's unique "virtual 3D" technology for generating virtual surround using just two speakers.
Even with only two front speakers, this technology produces a sensation of "virtual rear speakers" and provides a
pleasant sense of width and motion of sound behind you.
You can also take advantage of this RP-U100 application to create virtual 3D parameters to match your personal taste.
USB Capture
Opening Page
5/68 ページ
USB Capture
For USB capture, analog signals input to the analog jacks on the RP-U100 are
subjected to analog/digital (A/D) conversion and then output in digital form via the
USB link to a personal computer. This function allows the digital data to be
recorded on the computer, using an application such as a sound recorder.
Input jacks for data capture
Which input jacks are used for data capture depends on the mode selected with
the input selector.

Data Recording Methods
The RP-U100 Application does not include a recording function. Please use
appropriate recording software installed on the computer. For information on how
to use the software, please refer to its documentation.
The sound recorded with the USB capture function is the original sound of the
input signal. The effects of the DSP sound field programs of the RP-U100 are not
recorded.
The data format supplied to the computer is 44.1 kHz, 16 bit, stereo. Make sure
that the recording software is set up properly to handle this format.
While making a recording using USB capture, you should close all other applications
running on the computer. Otherwise recording quality may be poor.
Note
Digital input signals cannot be captured.
If data capture is activated while using the AUX1 - DIGITAL inputs, the RP-U100
automatically switches to the AUX1 - ANALOG inputs. After capture has ended,
the setting automatically returns to the AUX1 - DIGITAL inputs.

RP-U100 DSP SOUND FIELD TERMS
Sound field
The unique acoustic characteristics of a given space.
In locations such as a concert hall, we of course hear the direct sound coming for example
from an instrument. But our ears also pick up the so-called early reflections, which is the
sound being reflected from boundaries such as walls, floors and the ceiling. Finally, we hear
reverberation, namely the sound being repeatedly bounced back and forth and gradually
decaying.
The early reflections and reverberation characteristics depend on factors such as the size
and shape of the interior space and the type of furnishing. The resulting acoustics are
unique to a particular hall or room. This is what is called a "sound field."
DSP sound field program
Yamaha has collected a vast amount of sound field data at famous concert halls, opera
houses, and other venues around the world. These data express the direction of reflections,
their intensity, frequency characteristics, delay time, and many other factors.
The RP-U100 incorporates sound field programs based on such sound field data. The programs let you select the sound
field of a famous concert hall or theater to be recreated on your personal computer equipment setup.
DSP sound field program icon
There are icons which represent certain DSP sound field effects. A sound field program can

In Virtual 3D, the sound field effect will vary according to environment factors such as the
listening position and the shape of the room. The virtual rear speaker position may
therefore not exactly match the position displayed on the setting screen. The Main and Sub
parameters allow the listener to adjust the virtual rear speaker position to the point where
the best effect is achieved. Change these parameters as needed to match your personal

sound field of a famous concert hall or theater to be recreated on your personal computer equipment setup.
DSP sound field programs for music
The DSP programs for music create a sound field giving the realistic impression of being in a specific location. The
original signal is passed unchanged to the output, while sound field information is added by means of DSP processing.
Also with multichannel source material encoded in Dolby Digital, the decoded signal is reproduced unchanged with only
the ambience components added. This allows you to enjoy the sound of a world-famous concert hall, church, or other type
of location.
DSP sound field programs for Audio Visual
These DSP programs were specially developed for game or movie sound reproduction. The
action of surround decoders for Dolby Pro Logic and Dolby Digital is fused with the Yamaha
DSP, resulting in quality sound such as would be heard in the final mix of a completed movie.
The RP-U100 lets you reproduce this sound in your own personal space.

Introduction to Sound Field Programs
HALL
This is the sound field of a 'shoebox' type medium-sized hall in Vienna seating
about 1700 people. This sound field has beautiful, rich acoustics that faithfully
reproduce the complicated reverberations from the surrounding pillars and
carvings in the hall.
JAZZ
This program recreates the acoustics of a small venue for live on-stage
productions in New York. The sound field is for an area somewhat left of
center facing the stage.
This is the sound field of a beautiful gothic type monastery in a Paris suburb.
The reverberations blend in the numerous domed ceiling spaces formed by
CHURCH stone pillars, producing beautiful sustained notes.

VDD
This program adds a feeling of depth and ambience to game sounds. Allows
enjoying the pressure and excitement of a game as if actually there.
This sound field recreates the sensation of an expansive space that makes
you feel like you are in the midst of a movie.
This sound field reproduces the high-energized sensation of live rock and jazz
music.
This program (Virtual Dolby Digital) approximates the surround sound effect
of Dolby Digital using only two front-channel speakers. Ideal for faithful
reproduction of DVD software encoded in the Dolby Digital format.

Description:
45/68 ページ
Initial Delay Setting Screen
Adjusts the sensation of distance between walls and sound source.
1 ms to 99 ms
This is a parameter for controlling the delay between the direct sound and the start of the
early reflection. The delay in the early refrection is determined by the distance between the
walls and sound source. In other words, shortening the delay time gives the impression that
the sound source is near the walls. Conversely, lengthening the delay time gives the
impression that the sound source is far from the walls.
Adjusting the Initial Delay allows controlling factors such as the sense of distance from
the source of the sound to the surrounding walls, the sensation of spatial size, and the
nature of the tone (or sound image).
Room Size
Can be set for HALL JAZZ GAME MOVIE LIVE
Function:
Variable range:
Description:
Room Size Setting Screen
Adjusts the sense of expansiveness.
0.1 to 2.0
This parameter controls the sense of spatial expansiveness.
The larger the value, the wider the perceived space. When there is a larger distance between
the walls of a room, the number of reflections increases and the time interval between
reflections becomes longer. Therefore, controlling the time between adjacent reflections
makes it possible to change the impression of spaciousness.
A parameter setting of 1.0 means that the original measured values are used. At a setting of
2.0, the simulated length of one room boundary is doubled.
Liveness

Function:
Variable range:
Description:
Liveness Setting Screen

0 to 10
This parameter determines the attenuation of the early reflections. The larger this value, the
greater the sound field echo. The smaller this value, the weaker the echo, giving a "dead"
impression. This live or dead sensation for an actual hall is determined by the absorption
characteristics of the reflecting surfaces. Faster attenuation of reverberations results in a
more "dead" character and slow attenuation in a more "live" character.

Function:
Variable range:
Description:
Reverb Time Setting Screen
Adjusts the duration of the reverberation.
?1.0 sec to 5.0 sec
This parameter controls the time span in which the reverberation attenuates.
This is based on the time required for the reverberation sound to attenuate at a frequency
of approximately 1 kHz. The smaller this figure, the faster the attenuation of the
reverberation sound.
Adjusting this parameter lets you make a dead-sounding source or listening room appear
more lively. Conversely, you may want reduce an excessively bright feeling to achieve
natural sounding reverberation.
Reverb Level

Function:
Variable range:
Description:
Reverb Level Setting Screen
Adjusts the intensity of the reverberation.
0 % to 100 %
This is a parameter for controlling the level of the reverberation sound.
The larger this value, the more pronounced will be the reverberation, giving a lingering
quality to the sound. Smaller values will reduce reverberation and reduce trailing notes.
