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. This unit has a total of 12
digital sound field processor (DSP) modes. You can create an
excellent audio sound field by selecting a suitable sound field
(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 and Dolby Digital (AC-3) decoder for multi-channel
sound reproduction of Dolby Surround encoded video sources,
and a DTS decoder for multi-channel sound reproduction of DTSencoded audio and video sources. The operation of the Dolby
Pro Logic Surround, Dolby Digital (AC-3) or DTS decoder can be

PROFILE OF THIS UNIT
This unit also features a built-in automatic input balance
control. This always assures you the best performance without
manual adjustment.
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.
Furthermore, our technicians, armed with sophisticated
measuring equipment, have even made it possible to capture
the acoustics of a variety of actual concert halls, jazz clubs,
theaters, etc. from around the world, to allow you to accurately
recreate any one of these live performance environments, all in
your own home.
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
Stereo theater sound in your own home.
Dolby Surround is encoded on a lot of sound tracks of prerecorded video tapes, laserdiscs, 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.
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 channel (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 Digital (AC-3)
Dolby Digital (AC-3) is a new generation of Dolby Surround
sound system which is a spatial sound processing format
developed for 35 mm film-movies by employing 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 is called the “subwoofer channel” or “LFE
channel”.) 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.
By using the built-in Dolby Digital (AC-3) decoder, you can
experience the dramatic realism and impact of Dolby Stereo
Digital theater sound in your own home.
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.
5
Dolby Digital (AC-3) forms 5.1 channels as mentioned on the
previous page, and moreover, it can also form fewer channels,
for example 2 channel stereo and monaural. You may be able
to find some 2 channel stereo and/or monaural sources
encoded with the Dolby Digital (AC-3) in a market.
If a 2 channel stereo source encoded with the Dolby Digital
(AC-3) is played back as the input source and the DSP
program No. 10, 11 or 12 is used at the same time, the source
is first decoded with the Dolby Digital (AC-3) decoder into 2
channels, and then decoded with the Dolby Pro Logic decoder.
In such a case, only the decoding of Dolby Pro Logic is shown
on the display panel of this unit.
Laserdisc and DVD are home audio formats that could benefit
from Dolby Digital (AC-3). In the near future, Dolby Digital (AC3) will also be applied to DBS, CATV 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.

DTS Digital Surround
The DTS (Digital Theater Systems) system was developed to
replace analog soundtracks of movies with six discrete
channels of digital soundtracks, and now, it is installed in many
theaters around the world. The DTS digital playback system
changed the way we experienced movies in theaters with six
discrete channels of superb digital audio.
The DTS technology, through intense research and
development, made it possible to deliver a similar
encode/decode discrete technology to home audio surroundsound entertainment.
The DTS Digital Surround is an encode/decode system which
delivers six channels of master-quality, 20-bit audio; technically
5.1 channels, which means 5 full-range (left, center, right and
two surround) channels, plus a subwoofer (LFE) channel (as
“0.1”). It is compatible with the 5.1 speaker configurations that
are currently available for home theater systems
The DTS Digital Surround algorithm is designed to encode the
six channels of 20-bit audio onto any laserdisc or compact disc
(or DVD in the near future) with considerably less datacompression.
6
By using the DTS decoder built into this unit, you can
experience the dramatic realism and impact of the DTS
installed theater’s high quality sound in your own home.
Laserdisc and compact disc (and DVD in the near future) are
home audio format within which DTS can represent its high
quality multi-channel audio. (In addition to movies on
laserdiscs, many exciting new multi-channel music recordings
will also become available in the form of DTS-encoded
compact discs.)

Dolby Surround sound system and DTS system show their 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 are much
different from those of a movie theater.
English
CINEMA DSP: Dolby Surround + DSP / DTS + DSP
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 Surround sound or
DTS Digital Surround sound.
CINEMA DSP
The YAMAHA “CINEMA DSP” logo indicates those programs
are created by the combination of YAMAHA DSP technology
and Dolby Surround or DTS.
Dolby Pro Logic + 2 Digital Sound Fields
Digital sound fields are created on the presence side and
the rear surround side of the Dolby Pro Logic Surrounddecoded sound field respectively. They create a wide
acoustic environment and emphasize surround-effect in the
room, letting you feel much presence as if you were
watching a movie in a popular Dolby Stereo theater.
This combination is available when the digital sound field
program No. 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 or “PRO LOGIC/Enhanced” of
No. 12 is selected, and the input signal of source is analog,
PCM audio or encoded with the Dolby Digital (AC-3) in 2channels.
Dolby Digital (AC-3) or DTS + 3 Digital Sound
Fields
Digital sound fields are created on the presence side and
the independent left and right surround sides of the Dolby
Digital (AC-3)-decoded or the DTS-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) or DTS sound, this sound field combination
lets you feel as if you were watching a movie in the newest
Dolby Stereo Digital theater or DTS installed theater. This
will be the most ideal home theater sound at the present
time.
This combination is available when the digital sound field
program No. 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 or “DOLBY DIGITAL (or DTS
DIGITAL SUR.)/Enhanced” of No. 12 is selected, and the
input signal of source is encoded with the Dolby Digital (AC3) (except in 2-channels) or encoded with the DTS.

SPEAKER SETUP
Setting Up Your Speaker System
This unit has been designed to provide the best sound field
quality with a full seven-speaker system setup, using a pair of
main speakers to output main source sounds, two extra pairs
of effect speakers to generate the sound field plus one center
speaker for dialog. We therefore recommend that you use a
seven-speaker setup. A four-speaker system using only one
pair of effect speakers for the sound field 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 full seven-speaker system later. In the 4 or 5 speaker
system, the Digital Sound Field Processing is still performed,
but the main speakers are used for both the main channels
and the front effect channels.
Use of the Center Dialog Speaker Is
Recommended
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
It is also possible to further expand your system with the
addition of a subwoofer and amplifier. The use of a subwoofer
is effective not only for reinforcing bass frequencies from any
or all channels, but also for reproducing signals at the
subwoofer channel with high fidelity during playing back a
source with the Dolby Digital (AC-3) or the DTS decoded. You
may wish to choose the convenience of a Yamaha Active
Servo Processing Subwoofer System, which has its own builtin power amplifier.
When playing back a source with the Dolby Pro Logic
decoded, or playing back a source which contains centerchannel signals with the Dolby Digital (AC-3) or the DTS
decoded, dialog, vocals 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.
Speakers and Speaker Placement
Your full seven-speaker system will require three speaker
pairs: the MAIN SPEAKERS (your normal stereo speakers),
the FRONT EFFECT SPEAKERS and the REAR 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, the FRONT
EFFECT and REAR SPEAKERS.
Place the MAIN SPEAKERS in the normal position.
Place the FRONT EFFECT SPEAKERS further apart than the
MAIN SPEAKERS, on either side of and 0.5–1m behind and
above the MAIN SPEAKER pair.
Place the REAR SPEAKERS behind your listening position.
They should be nearly 1.8m 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.

6 Speaker System
Good for sound fields from 2-channel stereo sources.
When a normal stereo source is played back with the sound
field programs No. 1 through No. 6, a sound effect matching
that of a 7-speaker system can be obtained. The addition of
front left and right effect speakers produces a more effective
sound field.

m Connecting to digital (OPTICAL and COAXIAL) terminals
If your CD player, MD recorder, LD player, DVD player,
TV/satellite tuner, etc. are equipped with coaxial or optical
digital audio signal output terminals, they can be connected to
this unit’s COAXIAL and/or OPTICAL digital signal input
terminals.
To make a connection between optical digital audio signal
terminals, remove the cover from each terminal, 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) terminal of this unit, you must keep the unit
connected with the same named analog audio signal terminals
of this unit, because digital signal cannot be recorded by a tape
deck or VCR connected to only analog audio signal terminals
of this unit. You can switch the selection of input signals
between “digital” and “analog” easily. (See page 41 for details.)
* However, if you connect an MD recorder or DAT to this
unit’s OPTICAL MD/TAPE 1 PLAY and REC terminals, it
can record input sources connected to this unit’s OPTICAL
digital signal input terminals.
Notes
● When you connect an audio/video unit to both of the digital
and analog terminals of this unit, make sure to connect to
both terminals of the same name.
● Be sure to attach the covers when the OPTICAL terminals
are not being used, in order to protect the terminals from
dust.
● All digital audio signal input terminals are applicable to the
sampling frequency of 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz.
● In order to make this unit perform a successful DTSdecoding, the DTS bitstream must not be altered,
manipulated or corrupted in the process that it is sent from
the DIGITAL OUT terminal of a unit playing back a source
encoded with the DTS to a digital signal input terminal of
this unit.

SPEAKER BALANCE ADJUSTMENT
This procedure lets you adjust the sound output level balance between the main, center rear and front effect speakers 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 Digital (AC-3)
decoder, the Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoder and the DTS decoder.
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.
Note: Be sure to use the remote control transmitter with the lid open.

Notes
Once you have completed these adjustments, you can
adjust whole sound level on your audio system by using
the VOLUME control (or the MASTER VOLUME keys on
the remote control transmitter) only.
● If you use external power amplifiers, you may also use
their volume controls to achieve proper balance.
● If the function “1A. CENTER SP” in the SET MENU mode
is set in the “NONE” position, in step 9, 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 main speakers.
● If there is insufficient sound output from the center and
rear speakers, you may decrease the main speaker
output level by setting the function “1F. MAIN LEVEL” in
the SET MENU mode in the “–10dB” position.

m DESCRIPTIONS OF THE FUNCTIONS
1. SPEAKER SET (Selecting the output modes suitable for your speaker system)
Refer to pages 26 to 28 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.)
2. LOW FREQ. TEST (Adjusting subwoofer level by using the test tone)
The internal low frequency test tone generator is useful for
adjusting subwoofer level to make the subwoofer sound match
the sound of other speakers in your audio system.
Operating procedure
1. After selecting this function (title) in step 1 on page 32,
press the + or – key to display the mode for adjustment.
2. Press the
key so that the arrow points to
“TEST TONE . . . . OFF”. Next press the + or – key to
switch to the “ON” position.
The test tone is heard from the selected speaker(s).
3. Press the
key so that the arrow points to
“OUTPUT . . . .”. Next press the + or – key to select the
speaker whose sound you want to compare with the
subwoofer sound. The test tone is output from the selected
speaker.
* Adjust the MASTER VOLUME keys so that the test tone
can be heard at your desired listening level.
* If “SUBWOOFER” is selected, the test tone below 90 Hz
is output from the subwoofer.
* The test tone will not be necessarily output from only the
selected speaker(s). The output mode of the test tone
depends on the settings on “1. SPEAKER SET” in the
SET MENU mode.
* Even if a source is being played back, the test tone is
output instead of the source sounds.
4. Press the
key so that the arrow points to
“FREQ. . . . . . . . 88 Hz”. To confirm that the subwoofer
sound matches the sound of other speakers, change the
frequency of test tone one by one by pressing the + or –
key. (Frequency can be changed from 35 Hz to 250 Hz,
and last, all range (35–250 Hz) of frequencies are output.)
Adjust subwoofer level with the control on the
subwoofer so that the subwoofer sound matches the
sound of other speakers in any range of low frequencies.
Note
This low frequency test tone can also be applied to check the
bass response in your room. For the best bass condition, bass
sound must be heard definitely at any position in your room. If
not, change the setting of subwoofer or furniture in your room.
3. DLBY DGTL (DOLBY DIGITAL) SET
Adjusting method
After selecting the title “3. DLBY DGTL SET” in step 1 on page 32, press the + or – key to display the title “3A. LFE LEVEL”. To
select the title “3B. D-RANGE”, press the
key.) Then make a
key. (To select the title “3A. LFE LEVEL” again, press the
setting change or adjustment with the + or – key.
3A. LFE LEVEL (Adjusting the output level at the LFE (low frequency effect) channel)
●
Control range: –20 dB to 0 dB
Preset value: 0 dB
●
This adjustment is effective only when the Dolby Digital
(AC-3) is decoded and the signals of selected source
encoded with the Dolby Digital (AC-3) contain LFE signals.
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. (Refer
to page 5 for details about the LFE channel.)
33
3B. D-RANGE (Adjusting dynamic range)
●
Choices: MAX/STD/MIN
Preset position: MAX
●
This adjustment is effective only when the Dolby Digital
(AC-3) is decoded.
MAX:
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.
If you desire, you can adjust the dynamic range
manually only when the STD position is selected.
“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.
m H-LEVEL CUT (High Level Cut Scale)
Control range: 0.0 to 1.0
Preset value: 1.0
Adjusts the dynamic range of high level signals of
source. The larger the value, the more the range is
reduced. The smaller the value, the range is more
widened.
m L-LEVEL BST (Low Level Boost Scale)
Control range: 0.0 to 1.0
Preset value: 1.0
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 be possible to increase the sound output
level as high as a movie theater. However, in a level
suitable for listening in your room, the low level parts
of source sound cannot be heard well because they
will be lost among noises in your environment.
Dolby Digital (AC-3) technology also made it
possible to reduce an original sound track’s dynamic
range for a home audio format by “compressing” the
data of sound.
Adjusts the dynamic range of low level signals of
source. The larger the value, the more the range is
widened. The smaller the value, the range is more
reduced.
Adjusting method
Select the title H-LEVEL CUT or L-LEVEL BST by
pressing the
or
key and adjust its value by
pressing the + or – key.
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.
* In this position, it may happen that sound is output
faintly or not output normally depending on a
source. In that case, select the MAX or STD
position.
4. DTS SET
Adjusting method
After selecting the title “4. DTS SET” in step 1 on page 32, press the + or – key to display the title “4A. LFE LEVEL”. Then adjust its
level with the + or – key.
4A. LFE LEVEL (Adjusting the output level at the LFE (low frequency effect) channel)
●
Control range: –10 dB to 10 dB
Preset value: 0 dB
●
This adjustment is effective only when the DTS is decoded
and the signals of selected source encoded with the DTS
contain LFE signals.
34
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 is adjusted. (Refer to
page 6 for details about the LFE channel.)
English
5. 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
●
This adjustment is effective only when the Dolby Digital
(AC-3) or the DTS is decoded and the signals of selected
source encoded with the Dolby Digital (AC-3) or the DTS
contain center channel signals.
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.
In your audio system, the distance from the center speaker to
your listening position may be shorter than the distance from
the left or right main speaker to your listening position. In that
case, sounds from the left main, center and right main
speakers can reach your listening position at the same time by
delaying the sound from the center speaker.
6. CENTER GEQ (Adjusting the Center Channel Graphic Equalizer)
The built-in five band graphic equalizer is used to tailor, over a
±6 dB range, the overall output frequency response of the
center channel. The five bands cover the complete audible
sound spectrum and are centered on 100 Hz, 300 Hz, 1 kHz,
3 kHz and 10 kHz frequencies. Adjustment should be done to
each frequency individually.
Adjusting method
After selecting the function (title) in step 1 on page 32, press
the + or – key to display the condition of the equalizer. Then
select a frequency with the
or
key and adjust its level
with the + or – key.
* Adjustment can be made by monitoring sounds using the
test tone. To use the test tone, press the TEST key so that
“TEST DOLBY SUR.” appears on the display before making
adjustment. The test tone is output from the center
speaker(s).
7. CINEMA EQ (Adjusting the tonal balance of speakers)
It is difficult to balance tonal quality of the main, center, front
effect and rear effect speakers, because they may be different
in type and size, and their setting positions and heights are
also different. The built-in CINEMA Equalizer enables you to
balance tonal quality of the speakers easily by adjusting tonal
quality of the main/center, front effect and rear effect channels
individually.
This is also useful to compensate for loss of tonal response of
the main and center speakers when these speakers are placed
behind the projection screen (if you use a projector in place of
a TV).
The CINEMA Equalizer consists of the High-shelving equalizer
(HIGH) and the Parametric equalizer (PEQ). The High-shelving
equalizer changes high frequency characteristics smoothly,
and the Parametric equalizer boosts or cuts any selected
frequency smoothly.
Adjusting method
1. After selecting this function (title) in step 1 on page 32,
press the + or – key.
2. Select the channels on which you will make adjustments by
pressing the
or
key so that the arrow points the
corresponding title.
L, C, R ............... Left main, center and right main channels
FRNT EFCT ....................................... Front effect channels
REAR EFCT ................................................ Rear channels
3. Press the + or – key to turn the equalizer for the selected
channels to “ON”.
4. Press the
key repeatedly until the title of adjusting
mode (7A. L,C,R EQ/7B. FRNT EFCT EQ/7C. REAR
EFCT EQ) for the channels on which you will make
adjustments is displayed.
* The adjusting mode will not be displayed for the channels
that are set to “OFF” in step 2.
5. Make adjustments for the selected channels.
Select the item with the
or
key and change the
value with the + or – key.
HIGH: FRQ..................... Selects a turnover frequency of
the High-shelving equalizer.
GAIN ............................. Adjusts the maximum equalizing
level.
PEQ: FRQ ...................... Selects a frequency you will
boost or cut.
GAIN .............................. Adjusts the equalizing level on
the selected frequency.
* Adjustment can be made by monitoring sounds using the
test tone. To use the test tone, press the TEST key so that
“TEST DOLBY SUR.” or “TEST DSP” appears on the
display. The test tone is fixed on the channels on which you
make an adjustment and output from the corresponding
speakers.
It is recommended to make these adjustments together with
the tonal quality adjustment of the center speaker on the
function “6. CENTER GEQ”.
Note
Excessive increase of the GAIN level may cause an overload.
It is recommended to adjust the GAIN level so that it becomes
lower than the preset value.

decoded, set the input mode to “AUTO” or “AC-3 RF”.
● When you want to enjoy a source which has normal 2channel signals with a Dolby Pro Logic Surround program,
select the ANALOG mode.
● In the AUTO mode, there may be a case depending on
some LD players or DVD players that when you make a
search on a source encoded with the Dolby Digital (AC-3) or
the DTS during playback and then playback is restored,
sound output is interrupted for a moment because the digital
input signal is selected again.
● For sources PHONO, TUNER, TAPE 2, VCR 1, VCR 2 and
V-AUX, the input mode cannot be changed because they
input analog signals only to this unit.
● When the input source is changed to LD, CD, MD/TAPE 1,
TV/DBS or DVD/VCR 3, or the input mode is changed, the
currently selected input mode is shown on the display panel
and the monitor screen.

Notes on playing back a source encoded with the DTS
● When you play back an LD or CD source with the DTS
decoded (with the red “dts” indicator illuminated on the
display) in the AUTO mode, a noise may be heard just
after playback begins. To prevent such a noise, select
the DTS mode.
Be careful not to play back these sources in the
ANALOG mode. If they are played back in the ANALOG
mode, only a noise will be output from the speakers.
● If you play back a CD or LD source encoded with the
DTS in the AUTO mode, this unit is locked in the DTSdecoding mode automatically to prevent the generation
of noise possible in subsequent operations. In this state,
the red “dts” indicator flashes.
In this state, if you play back a CD or LD with normal
(PCM) digital signals, no sound will be heard. To play
back these sources normally, press the INPUT MODE
button on the front panel or the input selector key for the
currently selected source on the remote control
transmitter so that “PCM” appears on the display.
DIGITAL:
In this mode, only digital input signal is selected even though
other types of signals are input at the same time.
ANALOG
In this mode, only analog input signal is selected even though
other types of signals are input at the same time.

Notes on recording
The settings of DSP and the VOLUME, BASS, TREBLE,
BALANCE controls and the BASS EXTENSION switch
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 unit is connected
to provide only a S video (or only a composite video) signal,
you can record only a S video (or only a composite video)
signal on your VCR.
● A source that is connected to this unit between optical
digital terminals only cannot be recorded by a tape deck or
VCR other than the tape deck (or MD recorder etc.)
connected to the OPTICAL MD/TAPE 1 REC terminal of
this unit.
●
●
●
●
Dolby Digital (AC-3) RF audio input signal cannot be
recorded by a tape deck or VCR. To record an LD source,
the LD player must be connected to the OPTICAL digital
audio signal input terminal and/or analog audio signal input
terminals of this unit.
A source of signals input to the EXTERNAL DECODER
INPUT terminals of this unit cannot be recorded.
Please check the copyright laws in your country to record
from records, compact discs, radio, etc. Recording of
copyright material may infringe copyright laws.
If you watch a video software that uses scramble or
encoded signals to prevent it from being dubbed, there
may be a case that display information superimposed on
the picture and/or the picture itself is disturbed due to
those signals.

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.
English
USING DIGITAL SOUND FIELD PROCESSOR (DSP)
In addition, this unit incorporates a Dolby Digital (AC-3) decoder and a Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoder for multi-channel sound
reproduction of sources encoded with Dolby Surround, and a DTS decoder for multi-channel sound reproduction of sources encoded
with the DTS. The operation of these decoders can be controlled by selecting a corresponding DSP program including a combined
operation of the YAMAHA DSP and the Dolby Digital (AC-3), the Dolby Pro Logic Surround or the DTS.
This unit has 12 programs for digital sound field processing; 6 from actual acoustic environments from around the world, and 6
programs for Audio/Video sources. In addition, each program has two or three subprograms. All programs contain various
parameters that can be adjusted to the listener’s taste.
For details about digital sound field programs, refer to pages 50 to 54.

● If you prefer to cancel the DSP, press the EFFECT button. The sound will be the normal 2-channel stereo without surround
sound effect.
● When a monaural sound source is played with the program DOLBY/DTS SURROUND, no sound is heard from the main
speakers and the rear speakers. Sound is heard only from the center speaker. However, if the function “1A. CENTER SP” in the
SET MENU mode is set in the “NONE” position, the main speakers output the sound of the center channel.
● When this unit’s Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoder, Dolby Digital decoder or DTS 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.
● When a source of signals input to the EXTERNAL DECODER INPUT terminals of this unit is selected, the DSP cannot be used

●
If the function “1A. CENTER SP” in the SET MENU mode is
set in the “NONE” position, the sound output level of the
center speaker cannot be adjusted. This is because in this

●
Once the output level is adjusted, the level value will be the
same in all the digital sound field programs.

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 were recorded at actual
locations using sophisticated sound field measurement equipment.
Note
The channel level balance between the left and right rear effect speakers 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.

Hall A in Europe
This is a large fan-shaped concert hall in Munich which has approximately
2500 seats. Almost the whole interior is made of wood. There is relatively
little reflection from the right and left walls, and sounds spread finely and
beautifully.
Hall B in Europe
This is a large shoe-box type concert hall with approximately 2500 seats.
Almost the whole interior except the ceiling is made of wood, including
mahogany reflective panels. Special reflective paneling above the stage
produces strong frontal reflections which tend to reinforce the direct sound
from the stage. This hall has a very solid, powerful sound.

A classic shoe-box type concert hall with approximately 1700 seats. Pillars
and ornate carvings create extremely complex reflections. Those
reflections and the reflections from all directions of the hall produce a very
full, rich sound.
Hall D in U.S.A.
This is a large 2600-seat concert hall in the United States which features a
fairly traditional European design. The interior is relatively simple,
suggesting an American taste. Sound of the middle and high frequencies
are richly and beautifully reproduced.
Hall E in Europe
A classic large shoe-box type concert hall with approximately 2200 seats. It
has a circular stage and seats located behind the stage.
Live Concert
A large round concert hall with a rich surround effect. Pronounced reflections
from all directions emphasize the extension of sounds. You will experience
the sound field with a great deal of presence sitting at about the center
position near the stage.
This sound field is also effective for karaoke. This is because you feel as if
you are standing on a real stage.

Tokyo
The acoustic environment of an ordinary church with moderate
reverberations. This is ideal for reproducing church music played by a pipe
organ etc.
Freiburg
This program recreates the acoustic environment of a big church with a high
pointed dome and columns along the sides. This interior produces very long
reverberations.
Royaumont
This program features a sound field created by the refectory (dining hall) of
the monastery, a beautiful medieval Gothic structure located in Royaumont
on the outskirts of Paris. The dome-like spaces in the ceiling formed by the
supporting pillars cause reverberations to echo and create a beautiful,
lingering tone.
Village Gate
A jazz club in New York. It is in a basement and has a relatively spacious
floor area. The reflection pattern is similar to that of a small hall.
Village Vanguard
A traditional New York jazz club located on 7th Avenue. This room has a
low ceiling, and the “stage” is located in a corner. This program does not
produce nearly as many reflections as the concert hall or church
programs, but creates an intimate “close-to-the-music” feel.
The Bottom Line
This is the sound field at stage front in “The Bottom Line,” a famous New
York jazz club. The floor can seat 300 people to the left and right in a
sound field offering real and vibrant sound.
The Roxy Theatre

Pop/Rock
This program produces an enthusiastic atmosphere and lets you feel that
you are in the midst of the action, as if attending an actual jazz or rock
concert.
The indirect sound constituent spreads on the surround side of the sound
field by the use of data of a large round hall for the surround side, so the
image space around the screen and the sound space are fully expanded.
DJ
With this program, the voice of a disc jockey sounds more clearly, and
music entertains you with a rich sound field feeling.
Classical/Opera
This program provides excellent depth of vocals and overall clarity,
restraining excessive reverberation.
For opera, the orchestra pit and the stage are ideally combined, letting you
feel a full presence sound. The rear surround side of the sound field is
relatively moderated, however, it reproduces beautiful sound by the use of
the data of a concert hall. You will not be tired from long watching of an
opera.
Pavilion
This program reproduces vocals clearly, letting you feel the spaciousness of
a pavilion. Reverberation, which is somewhat delayed, reproduces the live
sound field unique to a pavilion, and helps to make a concert scene more
exciting.
Mono Movie
This program is for reproducing monaural video sources (old movies etc.).
Monaural sounds are reproduced with much presence by the front
presence side of the sound field and optimum reverberation effect. The
use of the center speaker makes conversations more audible, obtaining a
pleasant mix of conversations and picture.
Variety/Sports
Though the front presence side of the sound field is relatively narrow, the
rear surround side employs the sound environment of a large concert hall.
With this program, you can enjoy watching various TV programs such as
the news, variety shows, music programs or sports programs. In a stereo
broadcast of a sports game, the commentator is oriented at the center
position, and the shouts and the atmosphere in the stadium spread on the
surround side, however, spreading of them to the rear side is properly
restrained.

This program is ideal for precisely reproducing the sound
design of the newest 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 data of the sound
field of an opera house are used for the front presence
side, so the three dimensional feeling of the sound field
is emphasized, and dialog is precisely oriented on the
screen. By using the data of the sound field of a concert
hall on the rear surround side, powerfull reverberations
are generated. You can enjoy watching action, adventure
movies, etc. with much presence.
This program is for reproducing sounds on a multi-track
film, and characterized by a soft and extensive sound
field. The front presence side of the sound field is
relatively narrow. It spatially spreads all around and
toward the screen, restraining echo effect of
conversations without losing clarity. For the surround
side, the harmony of music or chorus sounds beautifully
in a wide space at the rear of the sound field.

CREATING YOUR OWN SOUND FIELDS
WHAT IS A SOUND FIELD?
In order to explain the impressive functions of the DSP, we
need to first understand what a sound field really is.
What really creates the rich, full tones of a live instrument are
the multiple reflections from the walls of the room. In addition
to making the sound “live”, these reflections enable us to tell
where the player is situated, and the size and shape of the
room in which we are sitting. We can even tell whether it is
highly reflective with steel and glass surfaces, or more
absorbent with wood panels, carpeting and curtains.
THE ELEMENTS OF A SOUND FIELD
In any environment, in addition to the direct sound coming
straight to our ears from the player’s instrument, there are two
distinct types of sound reflections that combine to make up the
sound field:
(1) Early Reflections.
Reflected sounds reach our ears extremely rapidly
(50 ms — 100 ms after the direct sound), after reflecting
from one surface only—for example, from the ceiling or a
wall. These reflections fall into specific patterns as shown
in the diagram on page 58 for any particular environment,
and provide vital information to our ears. Early reflections
actually add clarity to the direct sound.
(2) Reverberations.
These are caused by reflections from more than one
surface—walls, ceiling, the back of the room—so
numerous that they merge together to form a continuous
sonic “afterglow”. They are non-directional, and lessen the
clarity of the direct sound.
Direct sound, early reflections and subsequent reverberation
taken together help us to determine the subjective size and
shape of the room, and it is this information that the DSP
reproduces in order to create sound fields.
If you could create the appropriate early reflections and
subsequent reverberations in your listening room, you would
be able to create your own listening environment. The
acoustics in your room could be changed to those of a concert
hall, a dance floor, or virtually any size room at all. This ability
to create sound fields at will is exactly what Yamaha has done
with the DSP.
56
DSP programs consist of some parameters to determine
apparent room size, reverberation time, distance from you to
the performer, etc. In each program, these parameters are
preset with values precisely calculated by Yamaha to create
the sound field unique for the program. It is recommended to
use DSP programs without changing values of parameters,
however, this unit also allows you to create your own sound
fields. Starting with one of the built-in programs, you can adjust
those parameters. Even if this unit is in the standby mode, your
custom sound fields will remain in the DSP’s memory for about
two weeks. The following page details how to make your own
sound fields.
In addition to the “TYPE” parameter which selects the
subprograms within each DSP program (e.g. “Hall A in
Europe”, “Hall B in Europe” and “Hall C in Europe” for program
1, “HALL 1”), each program also has a set of parameters that
allow you to change the characteristics of the acoustic
environment to create precisely the effect you want. These
parameters correspond to the many natural acoustic factors
that create the sound field you experience in an actual concert
hall or other listening environment. The size of the room, for
example, affects the length of time between the “early
reflections”—that is, the first few widely spaced reflections you
hear after the direct sound. The “ROOM SIZE” parameter
provided in many of the DSP programs alters the timing
between these reflections, thus changing the shape of the
“room” you hear. In addition to room size, the shape of the
room and the characteristics of its surfaces have a significant
effect on the final sound. Surfaces that absorb sound, for
example, cause the reflections and reverberations to die out
quicker, while highly reflective surfaces allow the reflections to
carry on for a longer period of time. The DSP parameters allow
you to control these and many other factors that contribute to
your personal sound field, allowing you to essentially
“redesign” the concert halls and rooms provided to create
custom-tailored listening environments that ideally match your
mood and music.
Refer to “DESCRIPTIONS OF THE DIGITAL SOUND FIELD
PARAMETERS” on pages 58 to 60 for a description of what
each parameter does, how it effects the sound, and its control
range.

DESCRIPTIONS OF THE DIGITAL SOUND FIELD PARAMETERS
Not all of the following parameters are found in every program.
● ROOM SIZE
P. ROOM SIZE (Presence Room Size)
How it Affects the Sound:
Changes the apparent size of the music venue. The larger
the value, the larger the simulated room will sound.
Adjusts the apparent space size of the front presence sound
field. The larger the value, the longer the interval between
reflections becomes, which increases the depth of the sound
source.
What it Does:
Adjusts the timing between the early reflections. Early
reflections are the first group of reflections you hear before
the subsequent, dense reverberation begins.
S. ROOM SIZE (Surround Room Size)
Adjusts the apparent space size of the rear surround sound field.
The larger the value, the larger the surround sound field
becomes.
Control Range:
0.1 – 2.0
Standard setting is 1.0.
Changing this parameter from 1 to 2 increases the apparent
volume of the room eight times (length, width, and height all
doubled).

● INIT. DLY (Initial Delay)
P. INIT. DLY (Presence Initial Delay)
How it Affects the Sound:
Changes the apparent distance from the source sound.
Since the distance between a sound source and a reflective
surface determines the delay between the direct sound and
the first reflection, this parameter changes the location of the
sound source within the acoustic environment.
Adjusts the delay between the direct sound and the first reflection
on the presence side of the sound field. The larger the value, the
later the first reflection begins.
Control Range:
1 – 99 milliseconds
What it Does:
Adjusts the delay between the direct sound and the first
reflection heard by the listener.
S. INIT. DLY (Surround Initial Delay)
Adjusts the delay between the direct sound and the first reflection
on the rear surround side of the sound field. The larger the value,
the later the first reflection begins.
Control Range:
1 – 99 milliseconds
For a small living room this parameter would be set for a small
value. Large values for a big room. Larger values produce an

P. LIVENESS (Presence Liveness)
How it Affects the Sound:
This parameter changes the apparent reflectivity of the walls
in the hall.
English
● LIVENESS
Adjusts the apparent reflectivity of the walls on the front presence
sound field. The larger the value, the more reflective the front
presence sound field becomes.
The early reflections from a sound source will lose intensity
(decay) much faster in a room with acoustically absorbent
wall surfaces than in one which has mostly reflective
surfaces. A room with highly reflective surfaces in which the
early reflections decay slowly is termed “live”, while a room
with absorbent characteristics in which the reflections decay
rapidly is termed “dead”. The LIVENESS parameter lets you
adjust the early reflection decay rate, and thus the “liveness”
of the room.
S. LIVENESS (Surround Liveness)
Adjusts the apparent reflectivity of the walls on the rear surround
sound field. The larger the value, the more reflective the rear
surround sound field becomes.
What it Does:
Changes the rate at which the early reflections decay.

● REV. TIME (Reverberation Time)
How it Affects the Sound:
Control Range:
The natural reverberation time of a room depends primarily
on its size and the characteristics of its inner surfaces. This
parameter, therefore, changes the apparent size of the
acoustic environment over an extremely wide range.
1.0 – 5.0 seconds.
The reverb time in a small-to-medium size hall would be
between 1 and 2, and in a large hall it is normally between 2
and 3.
What it Does:
Adjusts the amount of time it takes for the level of the dense,
subsequent reverberation sound to decay by 60 dB (1 kHz).

A later reverberation sound makes you feel like the space of the
acoustic environment has become larger.
Performs fine adjustment of the level of all the effect sounds.
Control Range:

LEARNING NEW CONTROL FUNCTIONS (When the lid is open)
This is a learning remote control transmitter. The shaded keys in the illustration shown below can be programmed to “learn”
control functions from other remote control transmitters. By learning key-functions from other remote control transmitter, 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.
Some of the “learning-capable” keys are originally empty and others have already been preset with functions to control this unit and
other Yamaha components. You can store new functions to them (in place of preset functions) as desired.
* See page 70 for the learning method.
* See page 72 for clearing a learned function (or all learned functions).
Note
If the memory capacity of the remote control transmitter becomes full, no further learning is possible even if some learning-capable
keys are not occupied with new functions. If, for example, you store Yamaha codes only into this remote control transmitter, up to
about 50 functions can be stored. Store new functions to the learnable-capable keys which are useful for you.
Keys which can have three functions (1, 2, 3, 4)
In the “Learning-capable” keys, the keys numbered 1–4 in the
illustration at left can have three functions. This is because they
have three memory areas (A, B and C). (One function per area.)
You can store new functions into the area B and C, and use three
functions on a key by switching the memory areas with the A/B/C
switch. (Area A cannot learn a new function.)

According to your plan, store functions from other remote
control transmitters into an empty area of those keys. (Refer
to page 70 for the learning method.)
• While playing an audio/video unit, if you want to operate
another unit by using the remote control transmitter (for
example, if you want to rewind a tape on your VCR while
listening to a CD), you should open the lid of the remote
control transmitter and use the A/B/C switch and the
corresponding keys.
(If you press an input selector key with the lid closed to
change the functions of the OPERATION CONTROL keys to

playing CD source is canceled.)
About the lighting of keys
When an input selector key is pressed, the pressed key and
only the available OPERATION CONTROL keys (which
substitute for the keys stored with the preset functions or
learned functions) light up for about 3 seconds. So you will
know what keys are available at a glance.

MACRO OPERATIONS (When the lid is closed)
Preset macro keys are originally preset with macros. If you
prefer, however, you can change the contents of a macro key
by storing a desired series of functions on it. You can store up
to seven functions onto a macro key. (Refer to page 71 for the
learning method.)
“Macro” is a command which defines a sequence of several
operations.
The keys shown in the illustrations below (as preset macro
keys) are also preset with macros, in addition to individual
functions.
Each macro key is preset so that simply pressing it alone will
carry out several functions of other keys on this remote control
transmitter sequentially. (To know what key functions are
sequentially carried out by pressing each preset macro key,
see the next page.)
Macros can be used only when the lid is closed and the
MACRO switch is set to “SLOW” or “QUICK”. (If “OFF” is
selected, no macro will function even if the lid is closed.)
Setting the MACRO switch
OFF: In this position, no macro will function even if the lid of
remote control transmitter is closed.
QUICK: In this position, when a macro key is pressed, each
command is transmitted at 0.5 second intervals.
SLOW: In this position, when a macro key is pressed, each
command is transmitted at 3 second intervals.

Notes
A key in which no function is stored will carry out no
command.
• If it occurs that this unit will not receive the second command
because the internal operation of the first command takes a
long time, set the MACRO switch to the “SLOW” position, or
add no function or repeat the same command between the
first command and the next command.
• If you program the power on/off switching function of TV,
VCR, etc. as part of a macro sequence, note that it switches
the current mode to the other (“on” to “off”, or “off” to “on”).
For example, when you press the macro key, if the power of
TV, VCR, etc. is already on, the power will be turned off
even though you may not want it to do so.

•
Once you press a macro key, this unit will not receive the
command of another key (even if it is pressed) until this unit
finishes carrying out all commands of the macro key. Take
notice of this especially when the MACRO switch is in the
“SLOW” position.
Once you press a macro key, you must keep the remote
control transmitter directed at the main unit’s remote control
sensor until the remote control transmitter finishes
transmitting all command signals of the macro key.
You can also use the OPERATION CONTROL keys while

Notes
● Newly learned functions will replace previously learned

rapidly. In this case, even if some keys are not occupied
with functions from other remote control transmitters, no
further learning is possible.
● If you close the lid while learning, and then about 5 seconds
pass, the TRANSMIT/LEARN indicator flashes rapidly and
the mode before beginning learning operations is restored. If
this occurs, restart from step 2. However, if you open the lid
within 5 seconds, the mode before closing the lid is
restored.
● There may occasionally be instances in which, due to the
signal-coding and modulation employed by the other remote
control transmitter, this remote control transmitter will not be
able to “learn” its signals.
● When you press the LEARN, MACRO or CLEAR button, or
the RESET button inside of the battery compartment by
using a sharp-pointed thing, be careful not to damage the
button. If you will use a mechanical pencil, make sure that
the lead is not coming out.

MAKING A NEW MACRO
A new macro can be programmed onto any preset macro key in place of preset functions. (See page 68 to know what keys are
preset macro keys.) You can make as many as 13 new macro keys. A macro key can learn as many as seven functions of other
keys.

SYMPTOM
CAUSE
REMEDY
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
analog audio signal terminal connections.
The “ANALOG” input mode is selected on
this unit.
Select a proper input mode on this unit to turn
on the DTS decoder built into this unit.
A percussive noise is heard when you
begin playing back a source encoded with
the DTS.
If the “AUTO” input mode is selected,
depending on some sources, there may be a
case that a noise is heard while this unit is
identifying the format of input signal.
Set the input mode of the currently selected
input source to “DTS”.
No sound is heard when you play back a
source encoded with the DTS, even though
the “AUTO” or “DTS” input mode is
selected on this unit.
The DTS decoder built into this unit 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 you play back an
MD onto which you have recorded a
source encoded with the DTS.
A source encoded with the DTS cannot be
recorded onto an MD.
No sound is heard when you play back a
DAT onto which you have recorded a
source encoded with the DTS.
Depending on a DAT deck, a source
encoded with the DTS cannot be recorded
onto a DAT.
No sound is heard when you play back a
source (CD etc.) even though the currently
selected input mode is “AUTO”.
In the “AUTO” mode, the DTS-decoding
mode cannot be changed to the normal
(PCM) digital signal input mode
automatically.
A loud hissing noise is heard when you
play back a source encoded with the DTS.
English
When playing back a source encoded with the DTS:
Press the INPUT MODE button on the front
panel or the input selector button (for the
currently selected source) on the remote
control transmitter so that “PCM” appears on
the display.
Notes
• It is necessary to use a DTS decoder to play back a source encoded with the DTS, so the player which plays back a 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/A converter is used without using a DTS decoder, when you play back a source, only a loud hiss noise will be heard.
• If you make a search (or skip etc.) operation while playing back a source encoded with the DTS, the “PCM” indicator lights up on
the display. This is because this unit automatically changes the DTS-decoding mode to the normal (PCM) digital signal input
mode to prevent a noise from being output.
• A source encoded with the DTS cannot be recorded onto analog audio and video tapes, and also, an analog tape recorded with a
source encoded with the DTS cannot be played back.
The same result is obtained for MDs and DATs (depending on a DAT deck used for recording and/or playback).
