PREPARATION
SPEAKER SETUP
Speakers to Be Used
This unit is designed to provide the best sound-field quality
with a 5-speaker system, using main speakers, rear speakers
and a center speaker. If you use different brands of speakers
(with different tonal qualities) in your system, the tone of a
moving human voice and other types of sound may not shift
smoothly. We recommend that you use speakers from the
same manufacture to ensure even tonal quality.
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, vocals, etc.). If for some reason it
is not practical to use a center speaker, you can do without
it. Best results, however, are obtained with the full system.
The main speakers should be high-performance models and
have enough power-handling capacity to accept the
maximum output of your audio system. The other speakers
do not have to be equal to the main speakers. For precise
sound localization, however, it is ideal to use highperformance models that can reproduce sounds over the full
range for the center speaker and the rear speakers.
■ Use of a subwoofer expands your
sound field
It is also possible to further expand your system with the
addition of a subwoofer. 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) channel with high fidelity when playing back a
source encoded with Dolby Digital or DTS. The YAMAHA
Active Servo Processing Subwoofer System is ideal for
natural and lively bass reproduction.
Speaker Placement
Refer to the following diagram when you place the
speakers.
Main speaker (R)
Rear speaker (R)
Subwoofer
Main
speaker (L)
1.8 m
Center speaker
Rear speaker (L)
■ Main speakers
Place the right and left main speakers an equal distance
from the ideal listening position. The distance of each
speaker from each side of the TV monitor should be the
same.
■ Rear speakers
Place these speakers behind your listening position, facing
slightly inwards, nearly 1.8 m (approx. 6 feet) above the
floor.
■ Center speaker
Align the front face of the center speaker with the front face
of your TV monitor. Place the speaker as close to the
monitor as possible, such as directly over or under the
monitor and centrally between the main speakers.
Note
• If the center speaker is not used, the sound will be heard from the
right and left main speakers. In that case, “CENTER SP” in the
SET MENU is set to the NON position.
■ Subwoofer
The position of the subwoofer is not so critical, because low
bass sounds are not highly directional. But it is better to
place the subwoofer near the main speakers. Turn it slightly
toward the center of the room to reduce the wall reflections.
CAUTION
Please use magnetically shielded speakers.
Sometimes a video monitor may be adversely affected
even when magnetically shielded speakers are used.
Separate the speakers from the monitor if this happens.

Connecting Audio Components
■ Connecting to digital jacks
This unit has digital jacks for direct transmission of digital
signals through either coaxial or fiber optic cables. You can
use the digital jacks to input PCM, Dolby Digital and DTS
bitstreams. When you connect components to both the
COAXIAL and OPTICAL jacks, priority is given to the
input signals from the COAXIAL jack.
y
• You can designate the input for each digital jack according to
your component by using “3 I/O ASSIGN” in the SET MENU.
Notes
• When making connections between the digital signal jacks, you
should connect the components to the same-named analog audio
signal jacks of this unit, because a digital signal cannot be
recorded by a recording component connected to this unit.
• All digital signal input jacks are applicable to sampling
frequencies of 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz.
About the dust protection cap
Pull out the cap from the optical jack before
you connect the fiber optic cable. Do not
discard the cap. When you are not using the
optical jack, be sure to put the cap back in
place. This cap protects the jack from dust.
Note
■ Connecting an MD recorder, CD
recorder or tape deck
Connect the analog input/output jack of your recording
component to the AUDIO jacks.
Note
• When you connect a recording component to this unit, keep its
power on while using this unit. If the power is off, this unit may
distort the sound from other components.
Connecting an External Decoder
This unit is equipped with 6 additional input jacks (left and
right MAIN, CENTER, left and right SURROUND and
SUBWOOFER) for discrete multi-channel input from an
external decoder, sound processor or pre-amplifier.
Connect the output jacks on your external decoder to the
6CH INPUT jacks. Be sure to match the left and right
outputs to the left and right input jacks for the main and
surround channels.
Notes
• When you select 6CH INPUT as the input source, this unit
automatically turns off the digital sound field processor, and you
cannot listen to DSP programs.
• When you select 6CH INPUT as the input source, changing items
of “1 SPEAKER SET” in the SET MENU is not affected (except
“MAIN LVL”).
• The OPTICAL jacks on this unit conform to the EIA standard. If
you use a fiber optic cable that does not conform to this standard,
this unit may not function properly.
■ Connecting a CD player
y
• The COAXIAL jack is available for a CD player which has
coaxial digital output jack.
• When you connect a CD player to both the analog and digital
jacks, priority is given to the input signals from the digital jack.

• If the digital output data of the player has been processed
in any way, you may not be able to perform DTS
decoding even if you make a digital connection between
this unit and the player.
• If you play a source encoded with a DTS signal and set
the input mode to ANALOG, this unit reproduces the
noise of an unprocessed DTS signal. When you want to
play a DTS source, be sure to connect the source to a
digital input jack and set the input mode to AUTO or
DTS.
• If you switch the input mode to ANALOG while playing
a source encoded with a DTS signal, this unit reproduces
no sound.
• The following phenomena may occur if the input mode
is set to AUTO when playing back a source encoded with
DTS:
– If you continue to play a source encoded with a DTS
signal, this unit automatically switches to the “DTSdecoding” mode to prevent noise from being generated
during subsequent operation. (The “t” indicator
lights up on the display.) The “t” indicator may flash
immediately after playback of a source encoded with a
DTS signal has finished. Only a source encoded with a
DTS signal can be played back while this indicator is
flashing. (The indicator will flash for less than a minute.)
If you want to play a normal PCM source soon, set the
input mode back to AUTO.
– The “t” indicator may flash when a search or skip
operation is performed. If this status continues for a
certain length of time, the unit will automatically switch
from the “DTS-decoding” mode to PCM digital signal
input mode and the “t” indicator will go out.

• Choose a DSP program based on your listening preference, and
not on the name of the program. The acoustics of your listening
room affect the DSP program. Minimize the sound reflections in
your room to maximize the effect created by the program.
• When you select an input source, this unit automatically selects
the last DSP program used with that source.
• When you set this unit in the standby mode, the current source
and DSP program are memorized and are automatically selected
when you turn on the power again.
• If a Dolby Digital or DTS signal is input when the input mode is
set to AUTO, the DSP program automatically switches to the
appropriate decoding program.
• When a monaural source is being played with PRO LOGIC/
NORMAL or PRO LOGIC/ENHANCED, no sound will be heard
from the main speakers and the rear speakers. Sound can only be
heard from the center speaker. However, if “CENTER SP” in the
SET MENU is set to NON, the center channel sound is output
from the main speakers.
• When a source connected to the 6CH INPUT jacks of this unit is
selected, the digital sound field processor cannot be used.

SILENT CINEMA
SILENT CINEMA allows you to enjoy the realistic feel of
the DSP program while using headphones. This feature
delivers powerful surround reproduction just as if listening
through the speakers.
ADVANCED OPERATION
You can listen to SILENT CINEMA by connecting your
headphones to the PHONES jack while the effect speakers
are on.
BASIC OPERATION
• If the sound effect is canceled when Dolby Digital or DTS is
decoding, the sounds of the center and rear channels are mixed
and output from the main speakers.
• If you turn off the sound effect when Dolby Digital or DTS is
decoding, it may happen that the sound is output faintly or not
output normally, depending on the source. In that case, turn back
on the sound effect.
PREPARATION
Note
• This unit is not set in the Virtual CINEMA DSP mode even if
“REAR LR SP” is set to NON in the following cases:
– when the 5CH STEREO, PRO LOGIC/NORMAL, DOLBY
DIGITAL/NORMAL or DTS/NORMAL program is selected;
– when the sound effect is turned off;
– when 6CH INPUT is selected as the input source;
– when the Dolby Digital KARAOKE source is played;
– when using the test tone; or
– when connecting the headphones (you will hear SILENT
CINEMA).
INTRODUCTION
Virtual CINEMA DSP
Virtual CINEMA DSP allows you to enjoy the sound field

• You can manually replace a preset station with another FM or AM
station by simply using the manual preset tuning method.
• Automatic preset tuning will be performed for all RDS network
stations until all have been stored up to E8. Even if the number of
received stations is not enough to be stored up to E8, automatic
preset tuning is automatically ended after searching for all
stations.
• Only RDS stations with sufficient signal strength are stored by
automatic preset tuning. If the station you want to store is weak in
signal strength, tune in to it manually in monaural mode and store
it by using the manual preset tuning method. (There may be a
case that this unit cannot receive a station which could be
received by using the automatic tuning method. This is because
this unit receives a large amount of PI (Program Identification)
data along with the station.)
Memory back-up
The memory back-up circuit prevents the stored data
from being lost when this unit is set in the standby mode.
If, however, the power cord is disconnected from the AC
power outlet or the power is cut for more than one week,
the memory will be erased. If so, store the stations again
by using preset tuning methods.

RECEIVING RDS STATIONS
RDS data contains various information such as PI (Program
Identification), PS (Program Service name), PTY (Program
Type), RT (Radio Text), CT (Clock Time), EON (Enhanced
Other Networks), etc. The RDS function is carried out
among the network stations.
This unit can receive PI, PS, PTY, RT, CT, and EON data
when receiving RDS broadcasting stations.
■ PS (Program Service name) mode:
The name of the RDS station being received is displayed.
The program type on the RDS station being received is
displayed. There are 15 program types to classify RDS
stations. You can make this unit search for a station which is
broadcasting a program of the desired type. Refer to “PTY
SEEK Function” for details.
■ RT (Radio Text) mode:
• When an RDS station is being received, do not press RDS
MODE/FREQ until one or more RDS mode indicators light up on
the display. If you press the button before the indicators light up
on the display, the mode cannot be changed. This is because the
unit has not yet received all of the RDS data on the station.
• RDS data not offered by the station cannot be selected.
• The RDS data service cannot be utilized by this unit if the
received signal is not strong enough. In particular, the RT mode
requires a large amount of data to be received, so it is possible
that the RT mode may not be displayed even if other RDS modes
(PS, PTY, etc.) are displayed.
• RDS data cannot sometimes be received under poor reception
conditions. If so, press TUNING MODE so that the “AUTO”
indicator goes off from the display. Although the reception mode
is changed to monaural by this operation, when you change the
display to RDS mode, RDS data may be displayed.
• If the signal strength is weakened by external interference during
the reception of an RDS station, the RDS data service may be cut
off suddenly and “...WAIT” will appear on the display.

BASIC OPERATION
Use this feature to adjust the delay of the center channel
sound. This feature works when this unit decodes a Dolby
Digital or DTS signal. Ideally, the center speaker should be
the same distance from the listening position as the left and
right main speakers. However, in most home situations, the
center speaker is placed in line with the main speakers. By
delaying the sound from the center speaker, the apparent
distance from the center speaker to the listening position can
be adjusted to make it seem the same as the distance
between the left and right main speakers to the listening
position. Adjusting the delay time for the center speaker is
especially important for giving depth to the dialog.
Choices: ON, OFF
Initial setting: OFF

DELAY TIME AND SPEAKER OUTPUT LEVELS
When using the digital sound field processor with the
Dolby Pro Logic decoder, Dolby Digital decoder or DTS
decoder, you can adjust the delay time between the main
sound and sound effect, and each speaker’s output level as
you wish.
If desired, you can adjust the sound output level of each
speaker even if it has already been adjusted in
“ADJUSTING THE SPEAKER BALANCE” procedure.
Delay Time
You can adjust the time difference between the beginning
of the sound from the main speakers and the beginning of
the sound effect from the rear speakers. The larger the
value, the later the sound effect is generated. The delay
time can be individually adjusted to all DSP programs.
Notes
• Adding too much delay will cause an unnatural effect with some
sources.
• The sound is momentarily interrupted while adjusting the delay
time.

This program is for reproducing sounds from
70-mm and multichannel soundtrack films, and is
characterized by a soft and extensive sound field.
The presence sound field is relatively narrow. It
spatially spreads all around and toward the screen,
restraining the echo effect of conversations without
losing clarity. For the surround sound field, the
harmony of music or chorus sounds beautifully in a
wide space at the rear of the sound field.
The built-in decoder precisely reproduces sounds
and sound effects from sources.
The highly efficient decoding process improves
crosstalk and channel separation, and makes sound
positioning smoother and more precise.
In this program, the digital sound field processor is
not turned on.
This program ideally simulates the multi-surround
speaker systems of the 35-mm film theaters. Dolby
Pro Logic decoding, Dolby Digital decoding or
DTS decoding and digital sound field processing
create precise effects without altering the original
sound orientation.
The surround effects produced by this sound field
wrap around the viewer naturally from the back to
the left and right, and toward the screen.
Notes
• The “ x ” indicator does not light up when selecting the sub-program “NORMAL” of the q/DTS SURROUND program.
• If “CENTER SP” in the SET MENU is set to NON, no sound is output from the center speaker.
• The effect sound is output from the main speakers when a monaural source is played with CINEMA DSP program groups 4 (GAME) and 5

GLOSSARY
■ LFE 0.1 channel
Dolby Surround uses a four analog channel recording
system to reproduce realistic and dynamic sound effects:
two left and right main channels (stereo), a center channel
for dialog (monaural), and a rear channel for special sound
effects (monaural). The rear 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.
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 channels in a Dolby Digital or DTS 5.1 channel
systems.
YAMAHA has developed a natural, realistic sound effect
DSP algorithm for headphones.
Parameters for headphones have been set for each sound
field so that accurate representations of all the sound field
programs can be enjoyed on headphones.
■ Virtual CINEMA DSP
YAMAHA has developed a virtual CINEMA DSP algorithm
that allows you to enjoy DSP sound field surround effects
even without any rear speakers by using virtual rear
speakers.
It is even possible to enjoy virtual CINEMA DSP in a
minimum two-speaker system that does not include a center
speaker.
APPENDIX
DTS digital surround was developed to replace the analog
soundtracks of movies with a six-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 is practically
distortion-free, clear 6-channel sound (technically, a left,
right and center channels, two rear channels, plus an LFE
0.1 channel as a subwoofer, for a total of 5.1 channels).
ADVANCED OPERATION
■ DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
Digital Surround
■ SILENT CINEMA
BASIC OPERATION
Dolby Digital is a digital surround sound system that gives
you completely independent multi-channel audio. With
three front channels (left, center and right), and two rear
stereo channels, Dolby Digital provides five 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).
Using two-channel stereo for the rear speakers, 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 five 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.
D I G I T A L
Since the Dolby Surround and DTS systems were originally
designed for use in movie theaters, their effect is best felt in
a theater having many speakers and designed for acoustic
effects. Since home conditions, such as room size, wall
material, number of speakers, and so on, can differ so
widely, it’s inevitable that there are differences in the sound
heard as well. Based on a wealth of actually measured data,
YAMAHA CINEMA DSP uses YAMAHA original sound
field technology to combine Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Digital
and DTS systems to provide the visual and audio experience
of movie theater in the listening room of your own home.

GLOSSARY
■ 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.
■ Sampling frequency and number of
quantized bits
When digitizing an analog audio signal, the number of times
the signal is sampled per second is called the sampling
frequency, while the degree of fineness when converting the
sound level into a numeric value is called the number of
quantized bits.
The range of rates that can be played back is determined
based on the sampling rate, while the dynamic range
representing the sound level difference is determined by the
number of quantized bits. In principle, the higher the
sampling frequency, the wider the range of frequencies that
can be played back, and the higher the number of quantized
bits, the more finely the sound level can be reproduced.
■ I/O ASSIGN (SET MENU)
Although component is normally connected according to
jack names shown on the rear panel, this unit includes a
function that assigns jacks according to the component
being connected. If the component being used differs from
the component name shown for this unit’s digital input
jacks, it is possible to assign jacks according to the
component being connected. This makes it possible to
change the jack assignment and effectively connect more
component.
