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. Manufactured under license from Dolby Laboratories Licensing Corporation. “Dolby”, “AC-3”, “Pro Logic”, and the double-D symbol are trademarks of Dolby Laboratories Licensing Corporation. 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. English 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.) Front Main L Center FrontRR Main Front Main L Dialogue Dialogue Surround sound Surround sound Rear L Rear R Rear L Main FrontRR Rear R 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.)
