ENJOYING SURROUND SOUND .................... 40
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-900 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 which is also capable of reproducing the kind of powerful surround sound you have been
waiting for from its built-in 2 woofers and 21 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-900 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.

INTRODUCTION
Digital Sound Projector
This unit employs the digital sound projector technology
that allows one slim unit to control and steer multiple
channels of sound to generate multi channel surround
sound, thus eliminating the need for satellite loudspeakers
and cabling normally associated with conventional
surround sound systems. This unit is also equipped with
the following beam modes so that you can enjoy the
surround sound.
◆ 5 beam
◆ Stereo plus 3 beam
◆ 3 beam
This unit also employs the stereo playback and my beam.
Compatibility with the Newest Technologies
This unit employs decoders compatible with Dolby
Digital, DTS (Digital Theater Systems), Dolby Pro Logic,
Dolby Pro Logic II and DTS Neo:6.
◆ Dolby Digital
This is the standard audio signal format used on DVDs and
other purely digital media. This surround technology deliver
high-quality digital audio for up to 5.1 discrete channels to
produce a directional and more realistic effect.
◆ DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
This is an audio signal format used on DVDs and other purely
digital media. This surround technology deliver 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 fundamentally a redesigned version of Dolby Pro
Logic that employs 2 stereo surround channels, a subwoofer
and a greatly enhanced steering logic. As a result, this
improved technology provides an exceptionally stable sound
field that simulates 5.1 to a much greater degree than the
original Dolby Pro Logic. In addition, Dolby Pro Logic II
features Movie, Music and Game modes specifically designed
for movies, music and games respectively.
◆ DTS Neo:6

AUTO SETUP (INTELLIBEAM)
AUTO SETUP (IntelliBeam)
This unit creates a sound field by reflecting sound beams on the walls of your listening room and 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 optimizer
microphone, allowing you to avoid troublesome listening-based setup and achieving highly accurate sound adjustments
that best match your listening environment. We call these 2 features “IntelliBeam” generically.
The beam optimization creates the best possible surround sound field without manually setting the parameters for your
listening room.
The sound optimization feature performs the following checks and automatically makes appropriate sound adjustments.
DISTANCE:
Checks the distance of each beam from this unit and adjusts the delay of each channel so that each sound beam reaches
the listening position at the same time.
EQUALIZING:
Adjusts frequency and levels of each channel’s parametric equalizer to reduce coloration across the channels and create a
cohesive sound field. The sound optimization feature incorporates three parameters (frequency, level and Q factor) for
each of the seven bands in its parametric equalizer to provide highly precise automatic adjustment of frequency
characteristics.
SETUP
LEVEL:
Checks and adjusts the sound output level of each channel.

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 optimizer microphone
The supplied optimizer microphone collects and analyzes the sound that this unit produces in your actual listening
environment. Follow the procedure below to connect the optimizer microphone to this unit and make sure that the
optimizer microphone is placed in a proper location and that there are no large obstacles between the optimizer
microphone and the walls in your listening room.
Notes
• After you have completed the AUTO SETUP procedure, be sure to disconnect the optimizer microphone.
• The optimizer microphone is sensitive to heat.
– Keep it away from direct sunlight.
– Do not place it on top of this unit.
• Do not connect the optimizer 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 optimizer microphone is not properly placed in your listening room. To
avoid the possibility of an error:
– Do not place the optimizer microphone to the extreme right or left from the center of this unit.
– Do not place the optimizer microphone within 1.8 m (6.0 ft) from the front of this unit.
– Do not place the optimizer 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 optimizer 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 optimizer 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 57) once the AUTO SETUP procedure is completed.
• If a subwoofer with adjustable volume and crossover/high cut frequency controls is connected to this unit, set the volume between 10
and 12 o’clock as viewed on a conventional clockface and set the crossover/high cut frequency to the maximum.

USING SOUND FIELD PROGRAMS
USING SOUND FIELD PROGRAMS
This unit is equipped with a variety of precise digital decoders that allow you to enjoy multi-channel playback from
stereo or multi-channel sources. This unit is also equipped with a YAMAHA CINEMA DSP (digital sound field
processing) chip containing several sound field programs which you can use to enhance your playback experience. Most
of the sound field programs are precise digital recreations of actual acoustic environments found in famous concert halls,
music venues and movie theaters.
y
The YAMAHA CINEMA DSP modes are compatible with all Dolby Digital, DTS and Dolby Surround sources.
Note
Choose a sound field program based on your listening preference and do not purely rely on the name of the sound field program itself.
What is a sound field?
A significant factor that creates the rich, full tones of a live instrument are the multiple reflections from the walls of the
room. In addition to making the sound live, these reflections enable the listener to tell where the player is situated as well
as the size and shape of the room in which the listening is sitting.
■ Elements of a sound field
In any environment, there are two distinct types of sound reflections that combine with the direct sound coming straight
to our ears from the player’s instrument to make up the sound field.
Early reflections
Reflected sounds reach our ears extremely rapidly (50 ms to 80 ms after the direct sound) after reflecting from one
surface only (from the ceiling or a wall, for example). Early reflections help add clarity to the direct sound.
Direct sound, early reflections and subsequent reverberation taken together help us to determine the subjective size and
shape of the room, and it is this information that the digital sound field processor reproduces in order to create sound
fields.
BASIC
OPERATION
Reverberations
These are caused by reflections from more than one surface (i.e. wall, ceiling, the back of the room, etc.) so numerous
that they merge together to form a continuous sonic afterglow. They are non-directional and lessen the clarity of the direct
sound.
If you could create the appropriate early reflections and subsequent reverberations in your listening room, you would be
able to create your own listening environment. The acoustics in your room could be changed to those of a concert hall, a
dance floor or a listening room of virtually any size at all. This ability to create sound fields at will is exactly what
YAMAHA has done with the CINEMA DSP technology.

GLOSSARY
GLOSSARY
Audio formats
■ Dolby Digital
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 previously unheard of
excitement and realism.
With this unit, any sound environment from monaural up
to a 5.1-channel configuration can be freely selected for
your enjoyment.
■ 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
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. Digital Theater Systems 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, a
left, right and center channels, 2 surround channels, plus
an LFE 0.1 channel as a subwoofer, for a total of 5.1channels). The unit incorporates a DTS-ES decoder that
enables 6.1-channel reproduction by adding the surround
back channel to existing 5.1-channel format.
■ DTS Neo:6
Neo:6 decodes the conventional 2-channel sources for 6
channel 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.
■ 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.
Audio information
■ 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
reproduced by the other 5/6 channels in Dolby Digital or
DTS 5.1/6.1-channel systems.
ADDITIONAL
INFORMATION
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.
