PROFILE OF THIS UNIT
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.
What’s more, 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
The Dolby Pro Logic Surround Decoder program lets you
experience the dramatic realism and impact of Dolby Surround
movie theater sound in your own home. Dolby Pro Logic gets
its name from its professional-grade steering logic circuitry,
which provides greater effective front and rear channel
separation for a much higher degree of realism than the
“passive” Dolby Surround circuits found in less sophisticated
home audio/video equipment. Dolby Pro Logic Surround
provides a true center channel, so that there are four
independent channels, unlike passive Dolby Surround which
has in effect only three channels: left, right, and rear. This
center channel allows listeners seated in even less-than-ideal
positions to hear the dialog originating from action on the
screen while getting a stereo effect as well.
This Dolby Pro Logic Surround Decoder employs a digital
signal processing system. This system increases sound
stability at each channel and minimizes crosstalk between
channels compared to conventional analog Dolby signal
processing.
In addition, this unit features a built-in automatic input balance
control. This circuit always presents you the best surround
conditions without performing manual adjustments.
Dolby Pro Logic Surround + DSP
You can also enjoy a combination of Dolby Pro Logic Surround
and DSP in the sound field program “
PRO LOGIC
ENHANCED”.
It recreates the surround effect of a movie theater, effectively
duplicating its multiple surround loudspeaker system,
completely surrounding the listener with the sounds of the
action taking place on the screen.

SPEAKER SETUP FOR THIS UNIT
SPEAKERS TO BE USED
This unit is designed to provide the best sound-field quality with a 5 speaker configuration. The speakers to be used with this unit
will be mainly front speakers, rear speakers, and a center speaker. (You can omit the center speaker. Refer to the “4-Speaker
Configuration” shown below.)
The front speakers are used for the main source sound and the effect sound. They will probably be the speakers of your present
stereo speaker system. The rear speakers are used for the effect sound. And the center speaker is used for the center sound
(dialog etc.) encoded with the Dolby Surround. The rear and center speakers do not need to be equal in power to the front
speakers. 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 digital sound field 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 13.)
The center speaker is not used in this configuration. If the
digital sound field program DOLBY PRO LOGIC or DOLBY
PRO LOGIC ENHANCED is selected, the center sound is
output from the left and the right front 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 13.)

How to Connect:
Connect the SPEAKERS terminals to your speakers with wire
of the proper gauge, cut as short as possible. If the
connections are faulty, no sound will be heard from the
speakers. Make sure that the polarity of the speaker wires is
correct, that is, + and – markings are observed. If these wires
are reversed, the sound will be unnatural and will lack bass.
Do not let the bare speaker wires touch each other and do
not let them touch the metal parts of this unit as this could
damage this unit and/or speakers.
Note
Use speakers with the specified impedance shown on the rear
of this unit.

ABOUT THE ACCESSORY TERMINALS
AC OUTLET(S) (SWITCHED)
FRONT OUTPUT terminals
(U.S.A., Canada and General models)
...........................................................2 SWITCHED OUTLETS
(Australia model) ................................. 1 SWITCHED OUTLET
Use these to connect the power cords from your components
to this unit.
The power to the SWITCHED outlets is controlled by this unit’s
POWER switch or the provided remote control transmitter’s
POWER key. These outlets will supply power to any
component whenever this unit is turned on.
The maximum power (total power consumption of
components) that can be connected to the SWITCHED AC
OUTLET(S) is 120 watts.
These terminals are for front channel line output. There is no
connection to these terminals when you use the built-in
amplifier.
However, if you drive front speakers with an external stereo
power amplifier, connect the input terminals of the external
amplifier (MAIN IN or AUX terminals of a power amplifier or an
integrated amplifier) to these terminals.
GND terminal (For turntable use)
Connecting the ground wire of the turntable to this terminal will
normally minimize hum, but in some cases better results may
be obtained with the ground wire disconnected.
This terminal is for output to a monaural amplifier driving a
subwoofer. Only frequencies below 200 Hz from the front and
center channels are output.
ADDING A SUBWOOFER
You may wish to add a subwoofer to reinforce the bass
frequencies.
Connect the LOW PASS terminal to the INPUT terminal of
the subwoofer amplifier, and connect the speaker terminals
of the subwoofer amplifier to the subwoofer.
With some subwoofers, including the Yamaha Active Servo
Processing Subwoofer System, the amplifier and subwoofer
are in the same unit.

● If you need an outdoor
FM antenna to improve
FM reception quality, either
300-ohm feeder or coaxial cable may be used. In locations
troubled by electrical interference, coaxial cable is
preferable.

SPEAKER BALANCE ADJUSTMENT
This procedure lets you adjust the sound output level balance between the front, center, and rear speakers using the built-in test
tone generator. With this adjustment, 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.
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.
<For U.S.A., Canada and Australia models only>
Use the remote control transmitter with the YPC-USER-LEARN switch on it set to the YPC position.

Notes
Once you have completed these adjustments, you can
adjust whole sound level on your audio system by using
the VOLUME control (or the VOLUME keys on the remote
control transmitter).
● If you use external power amplifiers, their volume controls
may also be adjusted to achieve proper balance.
● In step 10, if the center channel mode is in the
“PHANTOM” position, the sound output level of the center
speaker cannot be adjusted. This is because in this mode,
the center sound is automatically output from the left and
right front speakers.
● <Australia model only>
If there is insufficient sound output from the center and
rear speakers, you may decrease the front speaker output
level by setting the FRONT LEVEL switch on the rear
panel to “–10 dB”.

USING DIGITAL SOUND FIELD PROCESSOR (DSP)
This unit incorporates a sophisticated, multi-program digital sound field processor, which allows you to expand and shape the audio
sound field from both the audio and video sources, for a theater-like experience in the listening/viewing room.
This digital sound field processor has 8 programs; 6 programs for digital sound field processing and 2 programs for the Dolby Pro
Logic Surround sound system (DOLBY PRO LOGIC and DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED). You can create an excellent audio
sound field by selecting the suitable program and adding desired adjustments. In addition, when the DOLBY PRO LOGIC or
DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED program is selected, the built-in automatic input balance control functions. This presents you the
best surround condition without manual adjustment.

Description of Each Sound Field Program
The following list gives brief descriptions 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 them was recorded at the locations described
using sophisticated sound field measurement equipment.
Note
The channel level balance between the left rear effect speaker and the right rear effect speaker 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
PRO LOGIC
PRO LOGIC
ENHANCED
FEATURE
This program is effective for playback of sources encoded with Dolby Surround.
The employment of the digital signal processing system improves crosstalk and transfers the sound source
more smoothly and precisely, compared to the conventional type. A stable movie sound field is recreated.
This program is effective 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 film theater, thus widening the surrounded-sound field with greater presence.
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
DISCO
This program gives you long delays between direct sounds and effect sounds, and extraordinarily
spacious feel of a large stadium.
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 suitable for rock music. A big, powerful sound is reproduced lively and dynamically.
CONCERT HALL
In this program, the center seems deep behind the front speaker pair, creating an expansive, large hall
ambience.
Description of Dolby Pro Logic Surround
DOLBY PRO LOGIC SURROUND: This unit employs
the Dolby Pro Logic Surround system. This system is similar to
professional Dolby Stereo decoders used in movie theaters.
By employing a four-channel system, the Dolby Pro Logic
Surround system divides the input signals into four levels: the
left and right main channels, the center channel (to
characterize dialog), and the rear surround-sound channels (to
characterize sound effects, background noise and other
ambient noise).
Dolby Surround is encoded on the sound track of commercially
available video cassettes and video discs as well. When you
play a source encoded with Dolby Surround on your home
video system, the Dolby Pro Logic Surround system in this unit
decodes the signal and feeds the surround-sound effects.
The Dolby Pro Logic Surround mode may not be always
effective on video sources not encoded with Dolby Surround.
Manufactured under license from Dolby Laboratories Licensing
Corporation. Additionally licensed under Canadian patent
number 1,037,877. “Dolby”, “Pro Logic”, and the double-D
symbol are trademarks of Dolby Laboratories Licensing
Corporation.

●
When CONCERT VIDEO, MONO MOVIE, STADIUM,
DISCO, ROCK CONCERT or CONCERT HALL is
selected, no sound is heard from the center speaker.
●
When a monaural sound source is played with DOLBY
PRO LOGIC or DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED, no
sound is heard from the front speakers and the rear
speakers. Sound is heard only from the center speaker.
However, if the center channel mode is in PHANTOM, the
front speakers output the sound of the center channel.
●
When this unit’s Dolby Pro Logic Surround system is used,
if the main-source sound is considerably altered by
overadjustment of the BASS or TREBLE controls, the
relationship between the center and rear channels may
produce an unnatural effect.

REMOTE CONTROL “LEARNING” FUNCTION
(U.S.A., Canada and Australia models only)
All of the keys on this remote control transmitter can be programmed to “learn” key-functions from other remote control transmitters
without losing the preset key functions. By using this feature, 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. Use the included user program
sheets to indicate a new function learned for each key.
Note
There may occasionally be instances in which, due to the signal-coding and modulation employed by the other remote control
transmitter, this unit will not be able to “learn” its signals.

USER
LEARN
Set to the “LEARN” position.
2 Press a key on this unit where a new function will be
learned.
Notes
● When you operate the desired component with this remote
control transmitter, TRANSMIT/LEARN indicator will flash
steadily.
● The originally preset function of a key is still available in the
USER position if a new function has not been learned to the
key.
● Successful learning to a key results in the erasure of
previously learned functions and their replacement by the
newly learned ones.
● If there is no more room in the memory area for a function to
be learned, the TRANSMIT/LEARN indicator will flash on
and off. In this case, even if some keys are not occupied
with functions from other remote control transmitters, no
further learning is possible.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Select the appropriate program.
FM stereo reception is noisy.
Because of the characteristics of FM stereo
broadcasts, this is limited to cases where the
transmitter is too far away or the antenna input is
poor.
Check the antenna connections.
Try using a multiple element FM antenna.
There is distortion and clear reception cannot
be obtained even with a good FM antenna.
There is multipath interference.
Adjust antenna placement to eliminate multipath
interference.
A desired station cannot be tuned in with Auto
tuning.
The station is too weak.
Use Manual tuning mode.
Use a high quality directional FM antenna.
A desired station cannot be tuned in with Auto
tuning.
Weak signal or loose antenna connections.
Tighten the AM loop antenna connections and
rotate it for best reception.
There are continuous crackling and hissing
noises.
Noises will result from ligtning, fluorescent lamps,
motors, thermostats and other electrical equipment.
Use an outdoor antenna and a ground wire. This
will help somewhat but it is difficult to eliminate all
noise.
There are buzzing and whining noises
(especially in the evening).
A television set is being used nearby.
Relocate this unit away from the TV.
The remote control transmitter does not work.
Direct sunlight or lighting (of an inverter type of
flourescent lamp etc.) is striking the remote control
sensor of the main unit.
Change the position of the main unit.
