PROFILE OF THIS UNIT
You are the proud owner of a Yamaha AV processor/amplifier –an extremely sophisticated audio component. The Digital Sound
Field Processor (DSP) built into this unit takes advantage of Yamaha’s undisputed leadership in the field of digital audio processing
to bring you a whole new world of listening experiences. Follow the instructions in this manual carefully when setting up your system,
and this unit will sonically transform your room into a wide range of listening environments –movie theater, concert hall, and so on.
In addition, you get incredible realism from sources encoded with Dolby Surround using the built-in Dolby Pro Logic Surround
Decoder.
Please read this operation manual carefully and store it in a safe place for later reference.
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 venues such as an actual concert
hall, theater, etc. to allow you to accurately recreate one of
several actual live performance environments, all in your own
home.
Dolby Pro Logic Surround
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
Surround movie theater sound in your own home. 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 channels (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 Surround is encoded on the sound track of pre-recorded
video tapes, laser discs, 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.
This Dolby Pro Logic Surround Decoder employs a digital
signal processing system. This system improves the stability of
sound at each channel and minimizes crosstalk between
channels, so that positioning of sounds around the room is
more accurate compared with conventional analog signal
processing systems.
In addition, this unit features a built-in automatic input balance
control. This always assures you the best performance without
manual adjustment.

Corporation. “Dolby”, “AC-3”, “Pro Logic”, and the double-D

Dolby Pro Logic Surround + DSP
Dolby Surround sound system shows its full ability in a large
movie theater, because movie sounds are originally designed
to be reproduced in a large movie theater using many
speakers. It is difficult to create a sound environment similar to
that of a movie theater in your listening room, because the
room size, materials of inside walls, the number of speakers,
etc. of your listening room is much different from those of a
movie theater.
Yamaha DSP technology made it possible to present you with
nearly the same sound experience as that of a large movie
theater in your listening room by compensating for lack of
presence and dynamics in your listening room with its original
digital sound fields combined with Dolby Surround sound field.
6
The combination of Dolby Pro Logic Surround and DSP is used
on the sound field program “
PRO LOGIC ENHANCED”.
CINEMA DSP
The YAMAHA “CINEMA DSP” logo indicates these programs are
created by the combination of Dolby Pro Logic and YAMAHA
DSP technology.

SPEAKER SETUP
SPEAKERS TO BE USED
This unit is designed to provide the best sound-field quality with a 5-speaker configuration. The most effective speakers to use with
this unit are main speakers, rear speakers and a center speaker. You may omit the center speaker. (Refer to the “4-Speaker
Configuration” shown below.)
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 etc.) within programs encoded with Dolby Surround. The center speaker needs to be equal in power to the main speakers,
although the rear speakers should not be equal. However, all the speakers should have high enough power handling to accept the
maximum output of this unit.
SPEAKER CONFIGURATION
5-Speaker Configuration
4-Speaker Configuration
This configuration is the most effective and recommended one.
In this configuration, the center speaker is necessary as well as
the rear speakers. If the program DOLBY PRO LOGIC or
DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED is selected, conversations
will be output from the center speaker and the ambience will be
excellent.
• Set the center channel mode to the “NORMAL” or “WIDE”
position. (For details, refer to page 18.)
The center speaker is not used in this configuration. If the
program DOLBY PRO LOGIC or DOLBY PRO LOGIC
ENHANCED is selected, the center sound is output from the
left and the right main speakers. However, the sound effect of
other programs can be the same as that of the 5-speaker
configuration.
• Be sure to set the center channel mode to the “PHANTOM”
position. (For details, refer to page 18.)

SPEAKER PLACEMENT
The recommended speaker configuration, the 5-speaker configuration, will require two speaker pairs: main speakers (your normal
stereo speakers), and rear speakers, plus a center speaker. When you place these speakers, refer to the following.
Main:
In normal position. (The position of your present
stereo speaker system.)
Rear: Behind your listening position, facing slightly inward.
Nearly six feet (approx. 1.8 m) up from the floor.
Center: Precisely between the main speakers. (To avoid
interference with TV sets, use a magnetically shielded
speaker.)

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

➀ Unscrew the knob.
➁ Insert the bare wire.
[Remove approx. 5mm
(1/4”) insulation from
the speaker wires.]
➂ Tighten the knob and
secure the wire.
English
On main speaker connection
On subwoofer connection
This unit is not equipped with amplifiers for driving main
speakers, so connect an external amplifier (power amplifier,
integrated amplifier, receiver, etc.) for driving main speakers to
this unit.
Connect the MAIN OUTPUT terminals of this unit to the MAIN
IN (or equivalent) terminals of the external amplifier, and
connect the main speakers to the speaker terminals of the
external amplifier.
You may wish to add a subwoofer to reinforce the bass
frequencies.
If you use one subwoofer, connect either of the SUBWOOFER
OUTPUT terminals to the INPUT terminal of the subwoofer
amplifier, and connect the speaker terminals of the subwoofer
amplifier to the subwoofer.
If you wish to obtain more presence in your listening room, the
use of two subwoofers is recommended. To connect two
subwoofers to this unit, connect one SUBWOOFER OUTPUT
terminal to the INPUT terminal of the amplifier driving a
subwoofer, and the other SUBWOOFER OUTPUT terminal to
the INPUT terminal of the amplifier driving the other subwoofer,
and then connect each subwoofer to the corresponding
amplifier.
Notes
● If the external amplifier does not have the MAIN IN (or
equivalent) terminals, this unit can be connected to the AUX
(or TAPE PB) input terminals of the amplifier. If you did so,
make sure to select the “AUX” (or “TAPE”) input source
position and do not change to another input source
selection.
● To obtain the best performance of this unit, set the volume
control on the external amplifier to about the halfway
position between the min. and max.
