FEATURES
This unit is equipped with “6-channel discrete” output terminals
for sending multi-channel audio signals of the Dolby Digital (AC-3)
individually. Therefore, the audio amplifier or receiver must have
“discrete” input terminals to receive the signals from this unit.
If your amplifier or receiver can input 5-channel discrete signals
only, see page 12.
Digital Sound Field Processing
This unit incorporates a sophisticated digital sound field
processor. The processor allows you to electronically expand and
change the shape of the audio sound field from audio and video
sources, creating a theater-like experience in your listening room.
Dolby Digital (AC-3)
The built-in Dolby Digital (AC-3) Decoder leads you into a
totally new sound experiences.
English
This unit is a sophisticated digital sound processor designed
specifically for decoding the Dolby Digital (AC-3).
This unit consists of a Dolby Digital (AC-3) Decoder, Yamaha
Digital Sound Field Processor and other original Yamaha functions
developed using the newest technology to reproduce sources
encoded with the Dolby Digital (AC-3) precisely as movie sound
creators intended. This unit will lead listeners into a totally new
sound experience.
Dolby Digital (AC-3) is a new generation of multi-channel digital
audio technology, or the newest spatial sound processing format
developed for 35 mm film-movies by employing a new kind of low
bit-rate audio coding.
Dolby Digital (AC-3) is a digital surround sound system that
provides completely independent multi-channel audio to
consumers. In multi-channel form, Dolby Digital (AC-3) provides
five full range channels in what is sometimes referred to as a “3/2”
configuration: three front channels (left, center and right), plus two
surround channels. A sixth bass-only effect channel is also
provided for output of LFE (low frequency effect), or low bass
effects that are independent of other channels. This channel is
counted as 0.1, thus giving rise to the term 5.1 channels in total.
Compared to Dolby Pro Logic that is referred to a “3/1” system
(left front, center, right front and just one surround channel), Dolby
Digital (AC-3) features two surround channels, called stereo or
split surrounds, each offering the same full range fidelity as the
three front channels.
Sound of wide dynamic range reproduced by the five full range
channels presents listeners much excitement that has never been
experienced before. Precise sound orientation by the discrete
digital sound processing expands realism that the original movie
possesses.
3
Laser Disc is a home audio format that could benefit from
Dolby Digital (AC-3). In the near future, Dolby Digital (AC-3) will
also be applied to DBS, CATV, DVD and HDTV. The ongoing
release of Dolby Stereo Digital theatrical films now underway will
provide an immediate source of Dolby Digital (AC-3) encoded
video software.

The following original functions make the surround-sound effect
of Dolby Digital (AC-3) become the most suitable for your audio
system and the listening conditions.
Dolby Digital (AC-3) + DSP (CINEMA DSP)
Dolby Digital (AC-3) 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 Digital (AC-3) decoded sound field.
CINEMA DSP

Dynamic range (sound scale) of source can be changed so
that it will be suitable for the listening conditions.
Output of low bass from any channel can be assigned to
either the MAIN output terminals or SUBWOOFER output
terminal to maximize system performance.
Output of LFE can be assigned to either the MAIN output
terminals or SUBWOOFER output terminal to maximize
system performance.
The YAMAHA “CINEMA DSP” logo indicates those programs
are created by the combination of Dolby Surround and YAMAHA
DSP technology.
Dolby Digital (AC-3) + 3 Digital Sound Fields
Digital sound fields are created on the independent left and
right surround sides of the Dolby Digital (AC-3) decoded sound
field respectively. They create a wide acoustic environment and
emphasize surround-effect in the room, letting you feel much
presence as if you are watching a movie in a popular Dolby Stereo
Digital theater.
Digital sound fields are created on the presence side and the
independent left and right surround sides of the Dolby Digital (AC3) decoded sound field respectively. They create a wide acoustic
environment and much surround effect in the room without losing
high channel separation. With wide dynamic range of Dolby Digital
(AC-3) sound, this sound field combination lets you feel as if you
are watching a movie in the newest Dolby Stereo Digital theater.
This will be the most ideal home theater sound at the present time.

This combination is available on the sound field program
DIGITAL ENHANCED”.

SPEAKER SETUP
Setting Up Your Speaker System
Use of the Center Dialog Speaker Is Recommended
This unit has been designed to provide the best sound field
quality with a five-speaker system setup, using one pair of main
speakers for main and front effect sound reproduction, one pair of
surround speakers for rear effect and surround sounds and one
center speaker for dialog. We therefore recommend that you use a
five-speaker setup. A four-speaker system excluding a center
speaker will still provide impressive ambience and effects,
however, and may be a good way to begin with this unit. You can
always upgrade to the five-speaker system later.
When playing back a source with the Dolby Digital (AC-3)
decoded, dialog etc. are output from the center channel. Therefore,
if you want to maximize the performance of your Audio/Video
home theater system, it is recommended that you use a center
channel speaker.
If for some reason it is not practical to use a center speaker, it
is possible to enjoy movie viewing without it. Best results, however,
are obtained with the full system.
Use of a Subwoofer Expands Your Sound Field
The use of a subwoofer is effective not only for reinforcing bass
frequencies from any or all channels, but also for reproducing the
LFE (low frequency effect) sound with high fidelity when playing
back a source with the Dolby Digital (AC-3) decoded. You may wish
to choose the convenience of a Yamaha Active Servo Processing
Subwoofer System, which has its own built-in power amplifier.

Speakers and Speaker Placement
Your five-speaker system will require two speaker pairs: the
MAIN SPEAKERS (your normal stereo speakers) and the
SURROUND SPEAKERS, plus the CENTER SPEAKER. You may
also be using a SUBWOOFER.
The MAIN SPEAKERS should be high performance models
and have enough power handling capacity to accept the maximum
output of your audio system.
Other speakers do not have to be equal to the MAIN
SPEAKERS. For precise sound localization, however, it is ideal to
use high performance models that can reproduce sounds in full
range for the CENTER SPEAKER and the SURROUND
SPEAKERS.
Place the MAIN SPEAKERS in the normal position.
Place the SURROUND SPEAKERS behind your listening
position. They should be nearly six feet up from the floor.
Place the CENTER SPEAKER precisely between the two MAIN
SPEAKERS. (To avoid interference, keep the speaker above or
below the television monitor, or use a magnetically shielded
speaker.)
If using a SUBWOOFER, such as a Yamaha Active Servo
Subwoofer System, the position of the speaker is not so critical
because low bass tones are not highly directional.

CONNECTING TO THE AMPLIFIER OR RECEIVER
For connections with the amplifier or receiver, use the included
connection cords.
Make sure that you have the left (L) and right (R) channels
correctly connected. That means that jacks marked “L” on this unit
must be connected to jacks marked “L” on the other unit. Likewise
with the “R” jacks. This is easy if you remember to always use the
red plug for the “R” jacks and the white plug for the “L” jacks.
Use an amplifier or receiver equipped with discrete audio signal
input jacks.
Connect the 6CH DISCRETE OUTPUT jacks of this unit to the
discrete audio input jacks of the amplifier or receiver so that each
channel output is correctly connected to the corresponding input,
that is “MAIN” to “MAIN”, “CENTER” to “CENTER”, “SURROUND”
to “SURROUND” and “SUBWOOFER” to “SUBWOOFER”.
If you use an amplifier or receiver (the Yamaha model
RX-V2090 etc.) which has only 5-channel discrete input jacks
without a SUBWOOFER input jack, no connection can be made
from the SUBWOOFER output jack of this unit to the amplifier (or
receiver).
In this case, select the MAIN position on the function “4.
LFE/BASS OUT”. (See page 15.)
12
CONNECTING WITH AN LD (DVD) PLAYER,
TV/SATELLITE TUNER, ETC.
Connect an LD player, DVD player, TV/Satellite tuner etc. which
outputs digital audio signals encoded with the Dolby Digital (AC-3)
to this unit. Two audio/video units can be connected to this unit.
Connect an audio/video unit (LD player, DVD player, etc.) to the
DVD/LD COAXIAL or OPTICAL digital signal input jack of this unit.
In the same way, connect another unit (TV/Satellite tuner, etc.) to
the TV/DBS COAXIAL or OPTICAL digital signal input jack of this
unit.
To make a connection between optical digital audio signal
jacks, remove the cover from each jack, and then connect them by
using a commercially available optical fiber cable that conforms to
EIAJ standards. Other cables might not function correctly.
Even if you connect an audio/video unit to the OPTICAL (or
COAXIAL) jack of this unit, you must keep the unit connected with
analog audio signal input jacks of the amplifier (or receiver),
because the 6 channel discrete signals cannot be recorded by a
tape deck or VCR connected to the amplifier (or receiver).
NOTE: Be sure to attach the covers when the OPTICAL jacks are
not being used, in order to protect the jacks from dust.
NOTE: All digital audio signal input jacks are applicable to the
sampling frequency of 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz.
DVD player
If your LD player has AC-3 RF signal output jack and no digital
signal output jack for AC-3 discrete audio signals, connect the AC3 RF signal output jack to this unit’s OPTICAL (or COAXIAL) digital
signal input jack by using an RF demodulator (separate purchase).
First, connect the AC-3 RF signal output jack of the LD player to
the AC-3 RF signal input jack of the RF demodulator. Next,
connect the optical (or coaxial) digital signal output jack of the RF
demodulator to the OPTICAL (or COAXIAL) digital signal input jack
of this unit.
This connection is necessary for inputting audio signals encoded
with the Dolby Digital (AC-3) on the LD player to this unit.

play sources encoded with the Dolby Digital (AC-3) on both LD
player and DVD player, the signals from the LD player are input to
this unit (because signals input to the OPTICAL jack take priority
of signals input to the COAXIAL jack).
It is also necessary to connect the LD player (and/or DVD
player) to analog audio signal input jacks of the amplifier or
receiver regardless of the AC-3 RF signal connection, for playing
back a source with the Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoded or in

3. MAIN SPEAKER
4. LFE/BASS OUT
See pages 14 to 16 for details. (Once you have selected proper
modes, you do not have to make a setting change until any
alteration is made in your speaker system.)
5. LFE LEVEL (Adjusting the output level at the LFE
(low frequency effect) channel)
Control range: –20 dB to 0 dB (in 1 dB step)
Preset value: 0 dB
Adjusts the output level at the LFE (low frequency effect)
channel. If the LFE signals are mixed with signals at other
channels to output them from the same speakers, the ratio of LFE
signal level to the level of other signals are adjusted. (See page 3
for details about the LFE channel.)
6. CENTER DELAY (Adjusting the delay of center
sounds (dialog etc.))
Control range: 0 ms to 5 ms (in 1 ms step)
Preset value: 0 ms
Adjusts the delay between the main sounds (at the main
channels) and dialog etc. (at the center channel).
The larger the value, the later the dialog etc. is generated.
This is for making sounds from the left main, center and right
main speakers reach your listening position at the same time by
delaying the sound from the center speaker if the distance from the
center speaker to your listening position is shorter than the
distance from the left or right main speaker to your listening
position.
7. SURROUND DELAY (Adjusting the delay of rear
surround sounds)
Control range: 0 ms to 15 ms (in 1 ms step)
Preset value: 15 ms
Adjusts the delay between the main sounds (at the main
channels) and surround sounds. (at the rear channel).
The larger the value, the later the surround sounds is generated.

Choices: MAX/STD/MIN
Preset position: MAX
MAX: “Dynamic range” is the difference between the maximum
level and the minimum level of sounds. Sounds on a movie
originally designed for movie theaters feature very wide
dynamic range.
Dolby Digital (AC-3) technology can bring the original
sound track into a home audio format with this wide
dynamic range unchanged.
In this position, a source encoded with the Dolby Digital
(AC-3) is reproduced in the original sound track’s wide
dynamic range providing you with powerful sounds like a
movie theater.
Selecting this position will be more ideal if you can listen to
a source in a high output level in a room specially
soundproofed for audio/video enjoyment.
STD (Standard):
Powerful sounds of extremely wide dynamic range are not
always suitable for home use. Depending upon the
condition of your listening environment, it may not possible
to increase the sound output level as high as a movie
theater, however, in a level proper for listening to in your
room, the low level parts of source sound cannot be heard
as well because they will be lost among noises in your
environment.
Dolby Digital (AC-3) technology also makes it possible to
reduce an original sound track’s dynamic range for a home
audio format by “compressing” the data.
In this position, a source encoded with the Dolby Digital
(AC-3) is reproduced in the “compressed” dynamic range
of the source suitable for low level listening.
MIN:
In this position, dynamic range is more reduced than in the
STD position. Selecting this position will be effective when
you must listen to a source in extremely low level.
English
8. DYNAMIC RANGE (Adjusting dynamic range)
9. OUTPUT TRIM (Adjusting the whole level of signals
output from this unit)
Control range: –9 dB to 9 dB (in 1 dB step)
Preset value: 0 dB
Adjusts the whole level of signals output from the 6CH
DISCRETE OUTPUT jacks on the rear of this unit.

DIGITAL
)
DIGITAL MOVIE THEATER (
The built-in Dolby Digital (AC-3) decoder
precisely reproduces sounds and sound
effects of a source encoded with the Dolby
Digital (AC-3). The realization of a highly
efficient decoding process improves
crosstalk and channel separation and
makes sound positioning smoother and
more precise.
DIGITAL ENHANCED (

DSP
DSP
)
This program is ideal for precisely
reproducing the sound design of the newest
Dolby Digital multi-track films. The sound
field is made to be similar to that of the
newest movie theaters, so the
reverberations of the sound field itself are
restrained as much as possible. The three
dimensional feeling of the sound field is
emphasized, and dialog is precisely oriented
on the screen. You can enjoy watching SciFi, adventure movies, etc. with much
presence.
)
This program ideally simulates the multisurround speaker systems of the Dolby
Stereo Digital theater. The Dolby Digital (AC3) decoding and the digital sound field
processing is precisely performed without
altering the originally designed sound
orientation. The surround effects produced
by this sound field folds the viewer naturally
from the rear to the left and right and toward
the screen.

DIGITAL
NOTES
• The Dolby Digital (AC-3) Decoder is designed to be used with
program material (mainly movie soundtracks) encoded with the
Dolby Digital (AC-3).
•
The consequence of signal processing depends on the mode
of Dolby Digital (AC-3) encoded on the signals of source.
For example, if the input signals of source encoded with the
Dolby Digital (AC-3) are in 2-channels only, the decoded
signals are output from this unit in 2-channels, no matter what
program is selected.
