PROFILE OF THIS UNIT
Digital Sound Field Processing (DSP)
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 develop their original
Digital Sound Field Processing Technology to re-create the
acoustic environment of a large concert hall in a home audio
listening room.
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, live house, etc. to re-create various types of actual live
performance environments for home audio use.
The DSP programs on this unit are made on the basis of this
technology.
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.
Manufactured under license from Dolby Laboratories Licensing
Corporation. “Dolby”, the double-D symbol and “Pro Logic” are
trademarks of Dolby Laboratories Licensing Corporation.
Enjoying Karaoke with DSP
This unit is a new concept of AV receiver which has Karaoke
functions. They are two microphone input jacks, microphone
level control, echo level control, key level control and two
sound output modes (ONE TOUCH KARAOKE and VOCAL
AID) useful for singing Karaoke by using normal music sources
with vocals.
In addition, the built-in digital sound field processor presents
you with four programs which create sound fields suitable for
singing Karaoke. In those sound fields, you will sing Karaoke
with great feeling and sometimes excitedly.

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 can use one rear speaker only instead of using two rear
speakers, and omit the center speaker. (Refer to the “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 (without the center speaker)
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 3 STEREO 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 page17.)
The center speaker is not used in this configuration. If the
program DOLBY PRO LOGIC is selected, the center sound is
output from the left and the right main speakers. The program
DOLBY 3 STEREO is useless in this configuration. However,
the sound effect of other programs can be almost 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 17.)

Note
As this unit is equipped with a monaural amplifier for the rear channel, sounds output from the rear speakers are in monaural. So,
you may use one rear speaker only instead of using two rear speakers. However, the use of two rear speakers is recommended
when there are more than one listener in the listening room.
When using one rear speaker, place it right behind your listening position.
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.

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.
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.

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.
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.
For Karaoke
For normal DSP-surround effect
PROGRAM
26
PRO LOGIC
3 STEREO
FEATURE
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.
This program is effective not only for playback of sources encoded with Dolby Surround, but also for
sources not with Dolby Surround or TV programs with 2-channel stereo sound. With this program, 2channel stereo sound is converted into 3-channels (left main, center and right main), so the dialogs are
emphasized on the center position by the use of the center speaker. As no sound is output from the rear
speakers, this program is also effective in a simple Audio/Video system without rear speakers.
LIVE HOUSE
This program simulates the acoustic environment of a live house. An energetic sound field is created with
relatively clear reflections by the wall.
HALL
In this program, the center will appear to be deep behind the main speakers, creating an expansive large
hall ambience.
BALLAD
Vocals move your heart with deep and clear reverberations. This program is suitable for slow ballads, etc.
POPS
Vocals are emphasized and whole sound is clear. This program is suitable for pops.
JAZZ
This is a small, cozy jazz club with a low ceiling. The sound is very close and intimate.
ROCK
This program is ideally suited for rock music. You will experience a very dynamic or lively sound field.

When a monaural sound source is played with DOLBY PRO
LOGIC or DOLBY 3 STEREO, no sound is 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.
To select a DSP program on the remote control transmitter
First turn the DSP on so that a program name appears on the
display by pressing the EFFECT ON/OFF key. Next, select a
desired DSP program by pressing the
