CAUTION: READ THIS BEFORE OPERATING YOUR UNIT.
1. To assure the finest performance, please read this
manual carefully. Keep it in a safe place for future
reference.
2. Install this unit in a cool, dry, clean place — away
from windows, heat sources, sources of excessive
vibration, dust, moisture and cold. Avoid sources of
humming (transformers, motors). To prevent fire or
electrical shock, do not expose the unit to rain or
water.
3. Never open the cabinet. If something drops into the
unit, contact your dealer.
4. Do not use force on switches, controls or connection
wires. When moving the unit, first disconnect the
power cord and then the wires connected to other
component. Never pull the wires themselves.
5. The openings on the cover assure proper ventilation
of the unit. If these openings are obstructed, the
temperature inside the unit will rise rapidly.
Therefore, avoid placing objects against these
openings, and install the unit in a well-ventilated area
to prevent fire and damage.
Be sure to allow a space of at least 20 cm behind,
20 cm on both sides and 30 cm above the top panel
of the unit to prevent fire and damage.
6. The voltage used must be the same as that specified
on this unit. Using this unit with a higher voltage than
specified is dangerous and may result in fire or other
accidents. YAMAHA will not be held responsible for
any damage resulting from the use of this unit with a
voltage other than that specified.
7. Digital signals generated by this unit may interfere
with other component such as tuners, receivers and
TVs. Move this unit farther away from such
component if interference is observed.
8. Always set VOLUME to the “m” position before
starting the audio source play. Increase the volume
gradually to an appropriate level after playback has
been started.
9. Do not attempt to clean the unit with chemical
solvents; this might damage the finish. Use a clean,
dry cloth.
10. Be sure to read the “TROUBLESHOOTING” section
regarding common operating errors before
concluding that the unit is faulty.
12. To prevent lightning damage, disconnect the AC
power cord when there is an electrical storm.
13. Grounding or polarization — Precautions should be
taken so that the grounding or polarization of the unit
is not defeated.
14. AC outlet — Do not connect audio component to the
AC outlet on the rear panel if that component
requires more power than the outlet is rated to
provide.
This unit is not disconnected from the AC power source
as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if this
unit itself is turned off. This state is called the standby
mode. In this state, this unit is designed to consume a
very small quantity of power.
■ For U.K. customers
If the socket outlets in the home are not suitable for the plug
supplied with this appliance, it should be cut off and an
appropriate 3 pin plug fitted. For details, refer to the
instructions described below.
Note
• The plug severed from the mains lead must be destroyed, as a
plug with bared flexible cord is hazardous if engaged in a live
socket outlet.
■ Special Instructions for U.K. Model
IMPORTANT
THE WIRES IN MAINS LEAD ARE COLOURED IN
ACCORDANCE WITH THE FOLLOWING CODE:
Blue: NEUTRAL
Brown: LIVE
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this
apparatus may not correspond with the coloured
markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed
as follows:
The wire which is coloured BLUE must be connected to
the terminal which is marked with the letter N or
coloured BLACK. The wire which is coloured BROWN
must be connected to the terminal which is marked with
the letter L or coloured RED.
Making sure that neither core is connected to the earth
terminal of the three pin plug.
11. When not planning to use this unit for a long period
of time (e.g., a vacation), disconnect the AC power
cord from the wall outlet.

BASIC OPERATION
The remote control transmits a directional infrared beam. Be
sure to aim the remote control directly at the infrared sensor
during operation. When the sensor is covered or there is a
large object between the remote control and the sensor, the
sensor cannot receive signals. The sensor may not be able to
receive signals properly when it is exposed to direct sunlight
or a strong artificial light (such as a fluorescent or strobe
light). In this case, change the direction of the light or
reposition the unit to avoid direct lighting.

PREPARATION
SPEAKER SETUP
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 or speakers with the same tonal quality.
■ Use of a subwoofer expands your
sound field
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 center channel sound will be
heard from the right and left main speakers. In that case,
“CENTER SP” on the SET MENU is set to the NONE position.
(Refer to page 26 for details.)
ADVANCED OPERATION
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.
Main speaker (R)
BASIC OPERATION
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.
Refer to the following diagram when you place the
speakers.
PREPARATION
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.
Speaker Placement
INTRODUCTION
Speakers to Be Used
■ Subwoofer
APPENDIX
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
E-7
103.E800_07-15(Eng)

5/18/0, 1:36 PM
English
Some types of speakers interfere with a TV monitor. If
this problem occurs, move the speakers away from the
monitor. If you cannot avoid installing the center speaker
or subwoofer near the TV monitor, use magnetically
shielded speakers.
CONNECTIONS
Before Connecting Components
CAUTION
Never connect this unit and other components to mains power until all connections between components have been
completed.
Be sure all connections are made correctly, that is to say L (left) to L, R (right) to R, “+” to “+” and “–” to “–”. Some
components require different connection methods and have different terminal names. Refer to the instructions for each
component to be connected to this unit.
When you connect other YAMAHA audio components (such as a tape deck, MD recorder and CD player or changer), connect
it to the terminals with the same number labels as !, @, #, $ etc. YAMAHA applies this labeling system to all its
products.
Use RCA-type pin plug cables for connecting audio/video components with the exception described later.
The input and output terminals for pin plugs can be distinguished as follows:
Yellow
video signals (composite)
V
V
White
analog audio signals for the left channel
L

ADJUSTING THE SPEAKER BALANCE
This procedure lets you adjust the sound output level
balance between the main, center and rear speakers by using
the built-in test tone generator. When this adjustment is
performed, 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 Dolby Pro Logic decoder, Dolby Digital
decoder and DTS decoder.
The adjustment of each speaker sound output level should
be performed at your listening position with the remote
control. After completing the adjustments, use VOLUME
+/– at your listening position to check if the adjustments are
satisfactory.

• Set the input mode to AUTO to play a DVD/LD source encoded
with Dolby Digital.
• If the input mode is set to AUTO for the source, this unit
automatically determines which type of signal the source
contains. If this unit detects a Dolby Digital or DTS signal, the
decoder automatically switches to the appropriate setting and
reproduces 5.1 channel sound.
• The sound output may be interrupted for some LD and DVD
players in the following situation: The input mode is set to AUTO.
A search is performed while playing the disc encoded with Dolby
Digital or DTS, and then disc playing is restored. The sound
output is interrupted for a moment because the digital signal was

■ Notes on playing a source
encoded with DTS
• Some audio/video component, such as LD player, output different
audio signals through their analog and digital terminals. Change
the input mode as necessary.
• If the LD player is transmitting signals by a non-normal method,
this unit cannot detect the Dolby Digital or DTS signal. In this
case, the decoder automatically switches to PCM or analog.
• If the LD source does not contain a digital soundtrack, connect
the LD player to the analog terminals and set the input mode to
AUTO or ANALOG.
• While you are operating the LD player and playing a disc encoded
with Dolby Digital, if you switch from the pause or chapter
forwarding function to normal playback, you may hear the PCM
or analog sound an instant before the Dolby Digital sound is
played.
The digital input terminal of this unit can also handle
96-kHz sampling 24-bit digital signals. (To utilize this, use a
source that supports 96-kHz sampling 24-bit digital signals
and set the player for digital output. Refer to the instructions
for the player.) Note the following when a 96-kHz sampling
24-bit digital signal is input to this unit.

■ Notes on the digital signal
INTRODUCTION
• If “DATA ERROR” appears on the display while playing an LD
source encoded with DTS, stop playback and turn the player off
and then on again.
• 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 an LD source encoded with DTS and set the input
mode to ANALOG, there will be the noise of an unprocessed
DTS signal. When you want to play a DTS source, be sure to
connect the source to the digital input terminal and set the input
mode to AUTO or DTS.
• If you play a source encoded with DTS and set the input mode to
AUTO, there will be a short noise at first while the unit
recognizes the DTS signal and turns on the DTS decoder. This is
not a malfunction, and can be avoided by setting the input mode
to DTS beforehand. In addition, if you continue to play a source
encoded with DTS with the input mode setting left to AUTO, this
unit automatically switches to the “DTS-decoding” mode to
prevent noise from being generated during subsequent operation.
(The “t” indicator lights up on the display.) The “t”
indicator will flash immediately after playback of a source
encoded with DTS has finished. Only a source encoded with DTS
can be played back while this indicator is flashing. If you want to
play a normal PCM source soon, set the input mode back to
AUTO.

• The DSP program and the setting of VOLUME have no effect on
the material being recorded.
• Composite video and S video signals pass independently through
this unit’s video circuits. Therefore, when recording or dubbing
video signals, if your video source component is connected to
provide only an S video (or only a composite video) signal, you
can record only an S video (or only a composite video) signal by
your VCR.
• A source connected to this unit only through the digital terminals
cannot be recorded by the tape deck, MD recorder or VCR
connected to this unit.
• A source connected to the 6CH INPUT terminals of this unit
cannot be recorded.
• Check the copyright laws in your country to record from records,

SET MENU
This unit incorporates a sophisticated, multi-program digital sound field processor (DSP). This processor allows you to
electronically expand and change the shape of the audio sound field from both audio and video sources, creating a theaterlike experience in your listening room. You can create outstanding audio sound by selecting a suitable DSP program (this
will, of course, depend on what you are listening to).
When you select a CINEMA DSP program, one of the built-in decoders (Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Digital and DTS) is turned
on according to which type of signals the source being played contains.
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 re-creations of actual acoustic environments.
• The input source given in the following table for programs 4 through 8 indicates that input source which each program
is best suited for.
• Select the DSP program that you feel sounds best regardless of the name and description given for it below.

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
data for the sound field of an opera house are
used for the front presence, so the threedimensional feeling of the sound field is
emphasized, and dialog is precisely oriented on
the screen. By using the data for the sound field
of a concert hall on the surround sound field,
powerful reverberations are generated. You can

output from the center and rear speakers. In this position,
the sound output from the main speakers is attenuated.
Control range: –20 dB to 0 dB (in 1 dB steps)
Preset value: 0 dB
This adjusts the output level of the LFE channel. If the LFE
signals are mixed with signals of other channels and they
are directed to the same speakers, the ratio of the LFE signal
level to the level of the other signals can be adjusted.
STD (Standard)
In this position, a source encoded with Dolby Digital is
reproduced in the “compressed” dynamic range of the
source that is suitable for low-level listening.
Note
Note
• It may happen that sound is output faintly or not output normally
depending on the source. In that case, select the MAX or STD
position.
APPENDIX
MIN
In this position, the dynamic range is more reduced than in
the STD position. Selecting this position will be effective
when you must listen to a source at a low level.
ADVANCED OPERATION
• This adjustment is only effective when Dolby Digital is being
decoded and the selected source encoded with Dolby Digital
contains LFE signals.
MAX
In this position, a source encoded with Dolby Digital is
reproduced in the original sound track’s wide dynamic
range to provide you with powerful sounds just like those in
a movie theater. Selecting this position will be even better if
you can listen to a source at a high output level in a room
specially soundproofed for audio/video enjoyment.
BASIC OPERATION
6. D.D. LFE (Adjusting the output
level of the LFE channel for Dolby
Digital)
“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 a very wide
dynamic range. Dolby Digital technology can modify the
original sound track into a home audio format with this
wide dynamic range unchanged. Powerful sounds of
extremely wide dynamic range are not always suitable for
home use. Depending on the condition of your listening
environment, it may not be possible to increase the sound
output to a level as high as that in a movie theater. However,
at the normal level suitable for listening in your room, the
low-level parts of source sound often cannot be heard well
because they will be lost among noise in your environment.
Dolby Digital technology has also made it possible to
reduce an original sound track’s dynamic range for a home
audio format by “compressing” the sound data.
PREPARATION
Notes
• The setting of “CENTER SP”, “REAR SP”, “MAIN SP” and
“BASS OUT” have no effect on a source connected to the 6CH
INPUT terminals on the rear of this unit.
• Once you have adjusted appropriately for “CENTER SP”, “REAR
SP”, “MAIN SP”, “BASS OUT” and “MAIN LVL”, you do not
have to change any settings unless your speaker system is
modified.
• This adjustment is only effective when Dolby Digital is being
decoded.

are directed to the same speakers, the ratio of the LFE signal
level to the level of the other signals can be adjusted.
9. CNTR DELAY (Adjusting the delay
of the sound from the center
sound)
Control range: 0 ms to 5 ms (in 1 ms steps)
Preset value: 0 ms
This adjusts the delay between the main sound (on the main
channels) and dialog, etc. (on the center channel). The larger
the value, the later the dialog, etc. is generated.
This makes sounds from the left main, center and right main
speakers reach your listening position at the same time. This
is achieved 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 right and left
main speaker to your listening position.

BASIC OPERATION
• Adding too much delay will cause an unnatural effect with some
sources.
• The sound is momentarily interrupted while adjusting the delay
time.
• The sound output level of the center speaker cannot be adjusted
when the input signal is analog, PCM audio, or encoded with
Dolby Digital in 2-channel.
• If “CENTER SP” on the SET MENU is set to the NONE position,
the sound output level of the center speaker cannot be adjusted.
This is because the center channel sound is automatically output
from the right and left main speakers.
• Once the sound output level has been adjusted, the level will be
the same for all DSP programs.
PREPARATION
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.

If desired, you can adjust the sound output level of each
speaker even if it has already been adjusted in

■ When playing back a source encoded with DTS
REMEDY
Refer to
page
SYMPTOM
CAUSE
A loud hissing noise is
heard when playing back
a source encoded with
DTS.
The player which plays back the source is not
connected to a digital audio signal input terminal
of this unit.
The player must be connected to a digital audio
signal input terminal of this unit besides the
analog audio signal terminal connections.
10
The input mode is set to ANALOG on this unit.
Set a proper input mode to turn on the built-in
DTS decoder.
18
A percussive noise is
heard when playing back
a source encoded with
DTS.
If the input mode is set to AUTO, depending on
some sources, there may be a noise heard while
this unit is identifying the format of the input
signal.
Set the input mode of the currently selected
input source to DTS.
18
No sound is heard when
playing back a source
encoded with DTS, even
if the input mode is set
to AUTO on this unit.
The built-in DTS decoder does not function
because the player has a digital volume control
and it is set at a position other than “maximum,”
“neutral” or “ineffective.”
Set the player’s digital volume control at the
maximum, neutral or ineffective position.
—
No sound is heard when
playing back an MD or
DAT on which has been
recorded a source
encoded with DTS.
A source encoded with DTS cannot be recorded
on an MD or DAT.
No sound is heard when
playing back a source
(CD, etc.) even if the
currently selected input
mode is AUTO.
In the AUTO mode, the DTS-decoding mode
cannot be automatically changed to the normal
(PCM) digital signal input mode.
—
Set the input mode to AUTO again.
19
Notes
• It is necessary to use a DTS decoder to play back a source encoded with DTS, so the player which plays back the source must be connected
to a digital audio input terminal of this unit in the way described in this manual. If this connection is not made or only a D-to-A converter is
being used without using a DTS decoder, only a loud hissing noise will be heard when you play back the source.
• The “t” indicator will flash when the input mode is set to AUTO and a search or skip operation is performed while playing back a
source encoded with DTS. If this status continues for 30 or more seconds, the unit will automatically switch from DTS-decoding mode to
PCM digital signal input mode and the “t” indicator will go out.
