Important Safety Instructions
1. Read Instructions – All the safety and operating instructions
should be read before the appliance is operated.
2. Retain Instructions – The safety and operating instructions
should be retained for future reference.
3. Heed Warnings – All warnings on the appliance and in the
operating instructions should be adhered to.
4. Follow Instructions – All operating and use instructions should
be followed.
5. Water and Moisture – Do not use the appliance near water –
for example, near a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink, or
laundry tub; in a wet basement; or near a swimming pool; and
the like.
6. Cleaning – Unplug the appliance from the wall outlet before
cleaning. The appliance should be cleaned with a dry cloth or
only as recommended by the manufacturer.
7. Ventilation – Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for
ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of the appliance and
to protect it from overheating, and these openings must not be
blocked or covered. Do not use the appliance on a bed, sofa,
rug, or other such surface. Newspapers, table clothes, curtains,
and other items can inadvertently block ventilation slots. Do not
place the unit near curtains that could obstruct the ventilation. If
you install the appliance in a built-in installation, such as a
bookcase or rack, ensure that there is adequate ventilation.
Leave 20 cm (8") of free space at the top and sides and 10 cm
(4") at the rear. The rear edge of the shelf or board above the
appliance should be set 10 cm (4") away from the rear panel or
wall, creating a flue-like gap for warm air to escape.
8. Heat – The appliance should be situated away from heat
sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other
appliances (including amplifier) that produce heat.
9. Grounding or Polarization – The appliance may be equipped
with a polarized alternating current line plug (a plug having one
blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power
outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to
insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the
plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace
your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the
polarized or grounding-type plug.
A grounding type plug has two blades and a third grounding
prong. The wide blade or the third prong are provided for your
safety. If the provided plug does not fit into your outlet, consult
an electrician for replacement of the obsolete outlet.
10. Power-Cord Protection – Power-supply cords should be
routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by
items placed upon or against them, paying particular attention
to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where
they exit from the appliance.
2
11. Attachments – Do not use attachments not recommended by
the appliance manufacturer as they may cause hazards.
Accessories – Do not place the appliance on an unstable cart,
stand, tripod, bracket, or table. The appliance may fall, causing
serious injury to a child or adult, and serious damage to the
appliance. Use only with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table
recommended by the manufacturer, or sold with the appliance.
Any mounting of the appliance should PORTABLE CART WARNING
follow the manufacturer’s instructions,
and should use a mounting accessory
recommended by the manufacturer.
12. An appliance and cart combination
should be moved with care to avoid
injury from tip-over.
Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven
surfaces may cause the appliance and
S3125A
cart combination to overturn.
13. Lightning – For added protection for the appliance during a
lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for
long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and
disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent
damage to the appliance due to lightning and power-line surges.
14. Servicing – Do not attempt to service the appliance yourself as
opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous
voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service
personnel.
Damage Requiring Service – Unplug the appliance form the
wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel
under the following conditions:
A. When the power-supply cord or plug is damaged,
B. If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the
appliance,
C. If the appliance has been exposed to rain or water,
D. If the appliance does not operate normally by following the
operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that are
covered by the operating instructions as an improper
adjustment of other controls may result in damage and will
often require extensive work by a qualified technician to
restore the appliance to its normal operation,
E. If the appliance has been dropped or damaged in any way,
and
F. When the appliance exhibits a distinct change in performance
– this indicates a need for service.
15. Object and Liquid Entry – Never push objects of any kind
into the appliance through openings as they may touch
dangerous voltage points or short-out parts that could result in a
fire or electric shock.
The appliance should not be exposed to dripping or splashing
and no objects filled with liquids, such as vases should be
placed on the appliance.
Don’t put candles or other burning objects on top of this unit.
16. Batteries – Always consider the environmental issues and
follow local regulations when disposing of batteries.

Before using this unit
Setting the voltage selector
(Worldwide models only)
Worldwide models are equipped with a voltage selector so that you
can set your TX-SR701/701E/601/601E to conform with local
power supplies. Be sure to set this switch to match the voltage of the
power supply in your area before plugging in the unit.
Determine the proper voltage for your area: 220-230 V or 120 V. If
the preset voltage is not correct for your area, insert a screwdriver
into the groove in the switch and slide the switch all the way to the
top (120 V) or bottom (220-230 V), whichever is appropriate.

Connecting your audio components
Below is an example of how you can connect your audio
components to the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E. Refer to the diagram
above for the following connection examples.
IN/OUT (analog audio)
These are the analog audio inputs and outputs. There are seven
audio inputs and three audio outputs on the rear panel. The audio
inputs and outputs require RCA-type connectors.
DIGITAL INPUT/OUTPUT
On the rear panel of the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E, there are one
coaxial digital input, two optical digital inputs, one coaxial digital
output (TX-SR701/701E only), and one digital output. To the
digital inputs, connect CD players, LD players, DVD players, or
other digital source component. To the digital outputs, connect MD
recorders, CD recorders, DAT decks, or other similar components.
• Since an analog connection must be made when using REC
OUT or ZONE 2, make sure that the connection to the input
source is not digital only, but analog as well.
• When using an optical input or output jack, always use an
optical fiber cable.
1. Connecting a compact disc player (CD)
Using an RCA audio cable, connect the output jacks of the compact
disc player to the CD audio jacks of the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E.
Make sure that you properly connect the left channel to the L jack
and the right channel to the R jack.
If the compact disc player has a digital output, connect it to either
the DIGITAL INPUT COAXIAL jack or the DIGITAL INPUT
OPTICAL jack of the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E depending on the
type of connector on the compact disc player.
With the initial settings of the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E, the
CD input source is set for digital input at the COAXIAL jack
(COAX).
If the digital connection is made to a different jack, this must be
changed at “Input Setup” → “Digital Input” (see page 52).
16
2. Connecting a turntable (PHONO) (TX-SR701/701E only)
Using an RCA audio cable, connect the output jacks of the turntable
to the PHONO audio jacks of the TX-SR701/701E. Make sure that
you properly connect the left channel to the L jack and the right
channel to the R jack.
Note:
The TX-SR701/701E is designed for use with moving magnet
cartridges. For proper operation, connect a ground (or earth) wire to
the GND terminal. For some turntables, however, connecting the
ground wire may cause increased noise, and in such a case, a
ground wire is not necessary and should not be connected.
3. Connecting a cassette tape deck, MD recorder, DAT deck, or
CD recorder (TAPE)
Using RCA audio cables, connect the output jacks (PLAY) of the
device to the TAPE IN audio jacks of the TX-SR701/701E/601/
601E and connect the input jacks (REC) of the device to the TAPE
OUT audio jacks of the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E. Make sure that
you properly connect the left channels to the L jacks and the right
channels to the R jacks.
If the device has a digital output, connect it to either the DIGITAL IN
COAXIAL jack or the DIGITAL IN OPTICAL jack of the TX-SR701/
701E/601/601E depending on the type of connector on the device.
With the initial settings of the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E,
nothing is allocated as the digital input source for TAPE (----).
If you connect the digital audio output, be sure to make the
appropriate changes at “Input Setup” → “Digital Input” (see page
52).
If the device has a digital input, connect it to the DIGITAL
OUTPUT jack of the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E for digital
recording of the signal from the digital input of the TX-SR701/
701E/601/601E.
Note:
The output from the DIGITAL OUT jack of the TX-SR701/701E/
601/601E is only the digital signal input to the DIGITAL IN jack.

Connecting your video components
Below is an example of how you can connect your video
components to the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E. Refer to the diagram
above for the following connection examples.
Video signal will be output if you use any one of COMPONENT, S,
or composit terminals. However, you are recommended to match the
type of video terminals for connection between video devices (ex.
DVD player and VCR), TX-SR701/701E/601/601E and TV/monitor.
COMPONENT VIDEO INPUT/OUTPUT
For DVD players or other devices that have component video
connectors, the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E has two banks of
component video input connectors (Y, PB, PR) for direct
component video input. TX-SR701/701E/601/601E also has one
bank of component video output connectors for direct component
video output to the matrix decoder of a television, projector, or
other display device. By sending the pure component video signal
directly, the signal forgoes the extra processing that normally would
degrade the image. The result is vastly increased image quality, with
incredibly lifelike colors and crisp detail.
• The signal that comes in from COMPONENT VIDEO INPUT
is only sent to COMPONENT VIDEO OUTPUT. When
connecting a video player to the COMPONENT VIDEO
INPUT jacks, be sure to connect your television to the
COMPONENT VIDEO OUTPUT jacks.
VIDEO IN/OUT, S VIDEO IN/OUT
These are the video inputs and outputs. On the rear panel, there are
four video inputs and two video outputs and each one includes both
composite video and S video configurations.
Connect VCRs, VTRs, LD players, DVD players, and other video
components to the video inputs. Connect VCRs, VTRs, and other
recording components to the video outputs to make video
recordings.
R (red)
Digital audio output
(optical)
• When connecting a VCR or other video component, make sure
you connect its audio and video leads to the same bank (e.g.,
both to VIDEO 3).
• The VIDEO 4 inputs are located on the front panel.
The flow of the video signals is as follows:
The signal that comes in from a VIDEO IN jack is sent to both the
VIDEO OUT and S VIDEO OUT jacks. The signal that comes in
from a S VIDEO IN jack is sent to both the S VIDEO OUT and
VIDEO OUT jacks. It is not necessary to make both video and S
video connections.
Notes:
• If your video output device (e.g., television or projector) is
connected only to the MONITOR OUT VIDEO jack,
MONITOR OUT S VIDEO jack, or both, and the video signal
from the source component is input through the component
video connectors, no picture will appear. Video sources input
from the component video connectors can only be output from
the component video connectors.
• For more information about the DIGITAL INPUT/OUTPUT
jacks, see page 16.

REMOTE CONTROL
The
terminal on the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E is for
connecting other Onkyo components equipped with the
same
terminal. When a component is connected to the terminal, it can be
operated by the remote controller supplied with the TX-SR701/
701E/601/601E. In addition, when you connect a component to the
terminal, you can also perform the system operations given
below.
Power on/ready function
When the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E is in the standby state, if an
-connected component is turned on, the TX-SR701/701E/601/
601E also turns on and the input source selected at the TX-SR701/
701E/601/601E automatically switches to that component.
Be aware that this function will not work if the power cord for the connected component is connected to the AC OUTLET on the TXSR701/701E/601/601E, or if the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E has
already been turned on.
Direct change function
When the play button is pressed at an
-connected component,
the input source selected at the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E
automatically changes to that component.
Power off function
When the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E is placed in the standby state,
all
-connected components are also automatically put into the
standby state.
Also, if you press the ON button on the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E
remote controller while the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E is turned on,
all
-connected components (DVD players, CD players, MD
recorders, tuners, etc.) are also turned on.
24
To connect components using the
terminal, simply connect a
remote control cable from this
terminal to the
terminal of
the other component. An
remote control cable with a 1/8-inch
(3.5-mm) miniature two-conductor plug comes with every cassette
tape deck, compact disc player, MD recorder, and DVD player that
has an
terminal.
• When performing operations with
-connected components
using the
system, do not use the remote zone (Zone 2) .
• For remote control operation, the audio connection cables must
also be connected.
• If a component has two
terminals, you can use either one to
connect to the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E. The other one can be
used to daisy chain with another component.
• With Onkyo DVD players, you can enter the pre-program code
so that you can operate the DVD player directly with the remote
controller without connecting the
terminals (see page 67).
Connecting speakers
Before connecting the speakers, it is very important to place them
properly for the optimum sound space for your listening pleasure.
Be sure to refer to the instruction manuals that came with the
speakers during placement and connection. Furthermore, be aware
that for surround playback, the configuration and placement of your
speakers are both very important.
Subwoofer
When bass sound is reproduced, its volume and quality greatly depend
on subwoofer placement. Those characteristics also depends on the
shape of your listening room as well as your listening point. Generally
speaking, good bass sound is obtained when the subwoofer is placed
in the corner of the room or at one-third the length of the room.
Standard speaker setup for surround sound
• Front right and left speakers
Produces a basic sound image.
• Center speaker
Produces a rich sound image by serving as a sound source for the
front right and left speakers and enhancing the sonic movement.
• Surround right and left speakers
Adds three-dimensional sonic movement and produces
environmental sound associated with the background and effect
sound for each scene.
• Surround back speaker
Required for enjoying Dolby Digital EX, THX Surround EX
(TX-SR701/701E only), or DTS-ES audio.
Improves the quality of sound effects and the realistic acoustics.

Important points regarding speaker placement
Front left and right speakers and center speaker
• Place these three speakers all at the same height.
• Place each speaker so that it is aimed at the location of the
listener’s ears when at the listening position.
• Place front left and right speakers at the same distance from the
listening position.
Surround left and right speakers
Place these speakers so that their height is 3 feet (1 meter) higher
than that of the listener’s ears.
Surround back speakers
• Place these speakers so that their
height is 3 feet (1 meter) higher than
that of the listener’s ears.
10
• (TX-SR701/701E only) When using
surround back left and right
speakers, place them behind the
listener so that the angles between
the lines from each speaker to the
listener and a line straight back from
8

10. Listening position
Most dipoles have an arrow on them to indicate their orientation in
which that should be placed. For the correct acoustical phasing in
the room, dipolar surround speakers should be placed so that their
arrows point forward toward the screen and dipolar surround back
speakers should be placed so that their arrows point to each other.

Note:
If you select “2ch (PRE OUT)” at the “1. Hardware Config” menu
→ “ b. Surr Back” and use the PRE OUT terminals for 7.1ch
sound, connect the speakers to the power amplifier connected to
the PRE OUT terminals without connecting any speakers to the
Surround Back Speaker terminals on the TX-SR701/701E. Using
the surround back terminals on both the TX-SR701/701E and
power amplifier will not produce correct surround sound effect (see
page 55).
Connecting a subwoofer
Use the SUBWOOFER PRE OUT jack to connect a subwoofer with
a built-in power amplifier. If your subwoofer does not have a builtin amplifier, connect an amplifier to the SUBWOOFER PRE OUT
jack and the subwoofer to the amplifier.
Connecting the surround back speakers
(TX-SR701/701E only)
If you connect the surround back speakers to the power amplifier
connected to the SURR BACK PRE OUT terminals on the TXSR701/701E for 7.1ch sound playback, do not connect the surround
back speakers to the SURROUND BACK SPEAKER terminals on
the TX-SR701/701E. Connecting the surround back speakers to
both the TX-SR701/701E and power amplifier will not produce
correct surround sound effect.

Connecting speakers
After determining the layout of your speaker system, it is now
necessary to connect the speakers correctly to your TX-SR701/
701E/601/601E.
Caution:
• Be sure to connect the positive (+) and negative (–) cables for
the speakers properly. If they are mixed up, the left and right
signals will be reversed and the audio will sound unnatural.
• Do not connect more than one speaker cable to one speaker
terminal. Doing so may damage the TX-SR701/701E/601/
601E.
• Connect only speakers with an impedance between 6 and 16
Ω to the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E. Connecting speakers
with an impedance lower than 6 Ω may damage the
amplifier.
• Even if you are using only one speaker or listening to monaural
(mono) sound, never connect a single speaker in parallel to both
the right and left-channel terminals.
NO!
Connecting the speaker cable
1. Strip away approx. 5/8 inch (15 mm)
of the wire insulation.

Memory preservation (Other than USA and Canadian
models and Australian models)
The TX-SR701/701E/601/601E does not require memory
preservation batteries. A built-in memory backup system
preserves the contents of memory (e.g., speaker settings and
surround settings) during power failures and even when the
power is turned off with the POWER switch. The backup system
is charged when the POWER switch is turned on.
The length of time that the memory will be preserved will vary
depending on the ambient climate. On the average, memory
contents are protected over a period of a few weeks after the last
time the unit has been turned off. This period may be shorter
when the unit is exposed to a highly humid climate.

Connecting antennas
To use the tuner of the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E, it is necessary to
prepare the supplied FM and AM antennas.
• Adjustment and placement of the FM and AM antennas for
better reception must be done while listening to a station
broadcast.
• If better reception cannot be obtained, then placement of an
outside antenna is recommended.
Assembling the AM loop antenna
Assemble the loop antenna as shown in the illustration.
• Refer to “Connecting the AM loop antenna” below for details
on how to connect the loop antenna.
Connecting the included antennas
Connecting the FM indoor antenna:
The FM indoor antenna is for indoor use only. During use, extend
the antenna and adjust its orientation until the clearest signal is
received. Fix it with push pins or similar items in the position that
will cause the least amount of distortion.
If the reception is not very clear with the attached FM indoor
antenna, the use of an outdoor antenna is recommended.
Connecting the AM loop antenna:
The AM loop antenna is for indoor use only. Set it in the direction
and position where you receive the clearest sound. Put it as far away
as possible from the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E, televisions,
speaker cables, and power cords.
If the reception is not very clear with the attached AM indoor
antenna, the use of an outdoor antenna is recommended.

TX-SR701/701E
Notes:
• For the front L/R, center and subwoofer speakers, the speaker
distance values you can set will be between the current
maximum value(s) among all speakers and the values 10 feet (3
meters) lower than the current maximum value(s). For example,
if the current maximum value is 30 feet (9 meters), the speaker
distance values you can set will be between 20 feet (6 meters)
and 30 feet (9 meters).
• For the surround and surround back speakers, the speaker
distance values you can set will be between the current
maximum value(s) among all speakers and the values 20 feet (6
meters) lower than the current maximum value(s).
• Whenever you set the speaker distance value for any one of the
speakers, if you enter any values higher than the current
maximum value, the value you enter will be the new maximum
value and any other speaker distance values you already set will
automatically be adjusted to the values so that they keep the
same value difference to the new maximum value as the one to
the last maximum value.

Calibrating the speaker levels
Use this menu to set the volume for each speaker so that each
volume is heard by the listener at the same level. This is especially
important for speaker layouts where the left and right speakers are
at different distances or in asymmetrical positions due to room
designs and configurations. These settings and the distance settings
performed in the Speaker Distance menu are vital to create the
proper sound space and dynamics.
Note:
The speaker level settings here are not effective for multi-channel
input sources. To adjust the speaker levels for multi-channel input
sources, you will need to use the CH SEL, LEVEL , and LEVEL
buttons on the remote controller. See page 44.

Listening to RDS broadcasts
PTY program types in Europe
RDS reception is available only on the European model and only in
areas where RDS broadcasts are available.
The text given below in parenthesis is what is actually displayed on
the TX-SR701E/601E.
What is RDS?
RDS stands for Radio Data System and is a type of FM
broadcasting. RDS was developed within the European
Broadcasting Union (EBU) and is available in most European
countries. Many FM broadcasting stations now transmit the RDS
signals, which provide the additional information required. RDS
provides you with various services so that you can choose a station
that broadcasts your favorite categories of music, news, or other
information.
None (NONE):
No program type.
There are three main classifications of RDS broadcasts. Though
they can be tuned into by using the TUNING buttons as normal
stations, RDS broadcasts allow you to scan for stations of the type
and classification for which you are looking. This makes it much
easier for you to find the station you want (see “Performing a PTY
scan” and “Performing a TP scan” on page 40). The three main
classifications are explained below.
Information (INFO):
General information such as weather forecasts, consumer affairs,
medical help, etc.
RT: Radio Text
When an RDS station broadcasting RT information is selected, the
text information received from the station is displayed.
PTY: Program Type
When an RDS station broadcasting PTY information is selected, the
station type (classification) is displayed.
TP: Traffic Program
When an RDS station broadcasting TP information is selected,
traffic information will be broadcasted periodically.
Notes:
• In some cases, the characters displayed on the display of the
TX-SR701E/601E may not be exactly the same as the ones
broadcast by the radio station. Also, unusual characters may
appear on the display if the TX-SR701E/601E receives
characters that cannot be displayed correctly. This is not a
malfunction.
• When an RDS station broadcasting PS information is selected,
the name of the station is displayed instead of the frequency.
News reports (NEWS):
Reports on current events and happenings.
Current affairs (AFFAIRS):
Topical reporting of current affairs, often with a wider range of
topics than news reports.
Sport (SPORT):
Live sports action, sports news, and interviews.
Education (EDUCATE):
Formal educational programs.
Drama (DRAMA):
Radio plays and serials.
Culture (CULTURE):
Cultural programs (including religious affairs).
Science and technology (SCIENCE):
Programs about the natural sciences and technology.
Varied (VARIED):
Speech-based programs not covered by the above categories (e.g.,
quizzes, panel games, and comedy).
Pop music (POP M):
Popular commercial music, usually from past or present sales charts
(e.g., Top 40).
Rock music (ROCK M):
Popular music with an alternative appeal, often not appearing on
sales charts.
Middle of the road music (M.O.R.M):
Easy listening music (as opposed to Pop, Rock, or Classical).
Light classics (LIGHT M):
Classical music for general rather than specialist appreciation.
Serious classics (CLASSICS):
Performances of major orchestral works, symphonies, chamber
music, etc. (including the Grand Opera).
Other music (OTHER M):
Music styles not covered by the above categories (e.g., Jazz,
Rhythm & Blues, Folk, Country, and Reggae).
• Alarm (ALARM):
When an RDS station is making an emergency broadcast,
ALARM will flash on the display.

and hear noise during fast-forward or rewind operation. Non-DTS
sound input will not be output.
PCM: Select this if you hear sound gap between PCM tracks such
as ones on CD in “Auto” mode. Non-PCM sound input will not be
output.
Notes:
• When you play DTS-formatted CD or LD, be sure to select
“Auto” or “DTS.” If you select “PCM,” noise will be heard.
• If a DTS signal is not input when “DTS” is selected, the TXSR701/701E/601/601E will not automatically switch to analog
output even though “Auto” is selected with the AUDIO
SELECTOR button.
42
Notes on DTS:
• If you play a DTS-formatted CD or LD when the “PCM”
setting is selected on the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E, the DTS
encoded signal will not be decoded and noise will be output.
This noise could damage the amplifier and speakers. Therefore,
be sure to select “Auto” or “DTS” and use the digital input jacks
(OPT or COAX) to connect the DTS source.
• If you play a DTS-formatted CD or LD when “Auto” is
selected, you may hear a noise for a short while until the DTS
decoder recognizes the DTS-encoded signal and starts
operating. This is not a malfunction.
• If you press the pause or skip button on the player while playing
a DTS source, a short noise may be heard. This is not a
malfunction. In such cases, try playing the source in the “DTS”
selected.
• The DTS indicator on the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E lights
while a DTS source is played. When playback finishes and the
DTS signal transmission stops, the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E
remains in DTS mode and the DTS indicator remains lit. This
prevents noise when you operate the pause or skip button on the
player. Therefore, if the source is immediately switched from
DTS to PCM, the PCM signal may not be played. In this case,
stop the playback of the source on the player for about three
seconds and then resume playback.
• You may not be able to play some DTS source signals from
certain CD players and LD players even when you connect the
player to the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E digitally. This is
because the digital signal has been processed (such as the
output level, sampling frequency, or frequency response) and
the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E cannot recognize the signal as
DTS data. Therefore you may hear noise when you play a DTS
source while processing the signal.
• The outputs for the VIDEO 1 OUT, VIDEO 2 OUT, and TAPE
OUT output analog audio signals. Do not record from CDs or
LDs that support DTS using these outputs. If you do, the DTSencoded signal will be recorded as noise.
• If a CD or LD encoded in the DTS format is played back with
“PCM” selected, only noise will be produced. Always select
“Auto” or “DTS” when playing back DTS-encoded sources.

Listening Modes
The TX-SR701/701E/601/601E’s surround sound enables you to
enjoy the presence of a movie theater or concert hall in your room.
The configuration of the speakers is very important for the surround
sound. Refer to “Connecting speakers” on page 25.
Before using a listening mode, make sure the Speaker Config,
Speaker Distance, and Level Calibration parameters have been set
(see pages 31 to 36). Once the parameters have been set, it is not
necessary to set them again. See pages 48, 50 for information
regarding how to select the listening mode.
Listening Modes
Mono
This mode is for playing old movies where the sound is recorded in
monaural or for playing the left and right channels of movies
separately that contain different language signals. This mode also
allows you to listen to the multiplexed soundtracks on DVDs, and
other media that have them.
Direct
This mode delivers pure sound with minimum sound quality
adjustment and filtration. The sound recorded for the right and left
front channels is output to the right and left front speakers only and
not output to the subwoofer.
Pure Audio (TX-SR701/701E only)
Same as the direct mode except that the pure audio mode also turns
off the display window, turns off the power supply to the video
circuitry, and minimizes the sources of noise. The result is highfidelity music playback true to the original source.
Stereo
All input sound is output from the left and right front speakers.
The subwoofer is also used for playback.
T-D (Theater-Dimensional)
For the best enjoyment of your home theater, it is recommended
that you have front left and right speakers, a center speaker, and
surround left and right speakers. However, if you only have front
left and right speakers, you can enjoy multichannel audio by using
this mode.
This mode controls the characteristics of the sound that reaches
each ear to reproduce a multi-speaker setup. To receive the full
effect, there is an optimum listening position (sweet spot). Refer to
the explanation of the listening angle. In addition, if the reflective
sound components are large, it may be difficult to achieve the
desired result, so be sure to set up your system and listening
position to minimize reflective sound.
Dolby Pro Logic II
Opposed to Dolby Pro Logic, which had four channels (front, left,
center, and surround) recorded into two channels with matrix
processing and then played back in four channels, Dolby Pro Logic
II uses a feedback logic circuit to have 5.1-channel surround audio
(Dolby Surround, etc.) matrix-encoded into two channels and then
played back in its original 5.1-channel form.
Dolby Pro Logic II provides a Movie mode designed for playing
movies and a Music mode designed for listening to music. In the
Movie mode, the surround channels, which used to provide
monaural output over only a narrow frequency range, now provide
complete stereo output over the full frequency range. The result is
movie viewing with a realistic feel of movement. The Music mode
uses the surround channels to provide a natural soundfield that
cannot be provided with normal stereo output.
This mode can be used with VHS and DVD videos with the
mark and certain television programs. The
Music mode can be used with music compact discs and other stereo
sources.
46
Dolby D (Dolby Digital)
This mode is used for playing Dolby Digital sources.
Dolby Digital is compressed digital data with a maximum of 5.1channel surround sound. This source signal comes from DVDs and
LDs that have the
mark and therefore recorded for 5.1channel output.
• Dolby Digital EX
Enabled when playing back sources with surround tracks that
were encoded using the Surround EX technology.
• Dialog norm
Dialogue Normalization (Dialog Norm) is a feature of Dolby
Digital. When playing back software that has been encoded in
Dolby Digital, sometimes you may see a brief message in the
front panel display that reads Dialog Norm xdB (“x” being a
numeric value). Dialogue Normalization serves to let you know
if the source material has been recorded at a higher or lower
level than usual. This data is automatically used by the Dolby
Digital decoder to adjust the output volume of the source
material without affecting the volume of your amplifier.
Therefore, even if source material volume changes, you will
not have to adjust the volume on your amplifier.
DTS Neo:6
This mode is for 6.1-channel playback of sources such as PCM or
analog sources that have only two channels. The outputs of all six
channels are a wide frequency range with a great separation
between the different channels.
This mode can be set to the Cinema mode designed for playing
movies and the Music mode designed for listening to music.
The Cinema mode is good for movies. The reproduced surround
sound provide the same realistic feel of movement as 6.1-channel
sources. This mode can be used with VHS and television programs
with stereo sound.
The Music mode uses the surround channels to provide a natural
sound space that cannot be provided with normal stereo output. This
mode can be used with music CDs and other stereo sources.
DTS
This mode is used for playing DTS source.
DTS (Digital Theater System) is compressed digital data with a
maximum 5.1-channel surround output (6.1-channel with DTS-ES
Discrete sources) that allows for an extremely high-quality sound.
This source signal requires a DVD player that supports DTS output
and comes from DVDs, compact discs, and LDs that have the
mark.
DTS-ES Discrete 6.1
With the addition of the surround back channel, this new format has
all 6.1 channels recorded independently for a completely discrete
digital format. Since all channels are recorded independently, highfidelity surround playback with the increased feeling of a separated
sound space is achieved.
DTS-ES Matrix 6.1
This format has the surround back channel matrix encoded and
inserted into the left and right surround channels so that at playback
the output for the left, right, and back surround channels are
decoded using a high-precision matrix decoder.
DTS 96/24
Automatically changes to this mode when playing back sources
with surround tracks that were encoded using the DTS 96/24
technology.
THX (TX-SR701/701E only)
This mode is for playing back sources recorded in the THX format.
For the utmost in fidelity when playing back THX sources, it is also
recommended to use a THX-certified speaker system.
Listening Modes
• THX Cinema
This is the conventional 5.1-channel THX format. This mode
should be used only when playing back sources that were mixed
for playback in large movie theater environments.
• THX Surround EX
“THX Surround EX - Dolby Digital Surround EX” is a joint
development of Dolby Laboratories and the THX division of
THX Ltd.
In a movie theater, film soundtracks that have been encoded
with Dolby Digital Surround EX technology are able to
reproduce an extra channel which has been added during the
mixing of the program. This channel, called Surround Back,
places sounds behind the listener in addition to the currently
available front left, front center, front right, surround right,
surround left, and subwoofer channels.
This additional channel provides the opportunity for more
detailed imaging behind the listener and brings more depth,
spacious ambience, and sound localization than ever before.
When released to the home consumer market, movies that were
created using the Dolby Digital Surround EX technology, may
have a note to that effect on the packaging. A list of movies
created using this technology can be found on the Dolby web
site at http://www.dolby.com.
All Ch Stereo
This mode is designed for playing background music. The front,
surround, and surround back channels create a stereo image that
encompasses the entire area.
The TX-SR701/701E can play the 5.1-channel sources in THX
surround EX mode, even if the source is not encoded in Dolby
Digital Surround EX format. In this case, the sound actually
output from the surround back channels depends on the source
and may not fit your tastes.
Mono Movie
This mode is suitable for playing back monaural recording such as
old movie soundtracks. The center channel delivers the unprocessed
original sound, whereas the other channels deliver the centerchannel sound processed with the appropriate reverberation. This
allows you to enjoy monaural sound with the atmosphere of a movie
theater.
Enhance
With multi channel speakers, you will get more active surround
effect. When using the surround back speaker, the sound effect
moves naturally through the surround back speaker position. This
mode is good for music and TV sports programs.
Orchestra
This mode is appropriate for classical and opera music. The center
channel is cut and the surround channels are emphasized to widen
the stereo image. It will simulate the natural reverberation that is
created in large halls.
Unplugged
This mode is suitable for acoustical instrumental sounds, vocals,
and jazz music. By emphasizing the front stereo image, it will
simulate the acoustics that you would experience in front of the
stage.
Studio-Mix
This mode is for rock and popular music. The lively sounds are
enhanced for a powerful acoustic image that simulates the feeling of
being in a club or rock concert.
TV Logic
This mode gives realistic acoustics to TV programs that are aired
from TV studios. It enhances the entire surround sound and clarity
of the conversation.

c. IntelliVolume
This setting allows you to adjust for the volume differences between
your various input source components.
When switching input sources, you may find that the output level
for different components or input sources connected to the TXSR701/701E/601/601E is different even though the main volume
setting is the same. Under normal circumstances, you would then
have to change the volume setting each time you change the input
source. This Intelli Volume setting allows you to preset a volume
level for each input source separately so that when you do switch
from one input source to another, the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E
adjusts the volume accordingly and the volume stays the same. If
the volume is quieter than that of other sources, increase it with the
cursor button, and if it is louder than that of other sources,
decrease it with the cursor button.
The IntelliVolume can be adjusted between –12 and +12 decibels.

Input Setup
The listening mode will be reset to the mode you set here after
turning on the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E even if you change the
listening mode using the LISTENING MODE buttons.
When you set this setting to “Last Valid”, the listening mode will be
the one you used before.
Notes:
• For “e. PCM fs 96kHz source” “f. Digital Format source” “g.
D. F. Mono source”
These settings will be disabled if “----” is selected at the
“Digital Input” setting.
• For “e. PCM fs 96kHz source” “g. D. F. Mono source”
The selected listening mode will be applied to all the input
source signals of the same type.
e. PCM fs 96kHz source
This sets the listening mode for Digital PCM sources recorded with
a sampling rate of 96 kHz.
f. Digital Format source
This sets the listening mode for Dolby Digital or DTS sources.
g. D. F. Mono source
This setting allows you to select the listening mode for digital mono
source.
Digital format mono is monaural digital source, such as DVD or LD
which is recorded in Dolby Digital mono format.
d. Analog/PCM/D. F. 2ch source
This sets the listening mode for analog, PCM, or Digital Format 2ch
sources.
Analog sources consist of LP records, FM and AM broadcasts,
cassette tapes, and the such. PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) is one
form of digital audio signals and is recorded directly onto compact
discs and DVDs without compression.
Digital format 2ch is a 2-channel digital source, such as DVD or LD
which is recorded in 2-channel Dolby Digital format (but for PCM).

On: Select to turn on the Double Bass function.
Off: Select to turn off the Double Bass function.
Late Night
The audio for movies made for the cinema have a large dynamic
range; thus, the difference between loud noises and soft noises is
great. To hear the quieter sounds such as background noises or
human conversations, the movie must be played back at larger
volumes. When this setting is set to “High” or “Low,” the dynamic
range of the sound is narrowed down to allow you to easily hear
minute sounds at low volumes. This function is especially useful if
you wish to play a movie at low volumes during the nighttime.
This can be set to either “Off” or “Low,” or “High.” When this
setting is set to “High” or “Low,” the dynamic range of the sound is
narrowed down to allow you to easily hear minute sounds at low
volume.
Off: Select to turn off the Late Night function.
Low: Select to narrow down the dynamic range.
High: Select to further narrow down the dynamic range.
Notes:
• The Late Night function is effective only on Dolby Digital
encoded software.
• The depth of the Late Night effect is determined by Dolby
Digital software. With some sources, it may produce little or no
effect.
57
Audio Adjust
Center Image
DTS Neo:6 derives a center channel from two-channel PCM and
analog sources.
In cinema mode, for Lt/Rt film soundtracks, sounds steered to the
center are subtracted from the left and right channels.
In music mode, the intent in the front channels is less one of
steering and more one of stabilizing the front image by augmenting
it with a center channel, while preserving the original perspective of
the stereo mix. Therefore the derived center is never fully subtracted
from the left and right channels.
Center Image is the factor controlling the amount of subtraction. It
varies between 0 and 5 in steps of 1 and the default value is 3.
When Center Image=5, the factor is zero and nothing is subtracted
from the left and right channels. When Center Image=0, the center
channel is subtracted from the left and right channels at half level
(–6 dB) for each channel. The signal level sent to the center channel
output is not affected by Center Image.
This control should be set based on room layout and personal
preferences. A setting of 5 allows the left and right channels to pass
through unaltered from the stereo mix. A setting of 0 gives more
center channel dominance, which is particularly desirable if
listeners are located well off-center. At any setting, the center
speaker anchors the image.
Center Image is only enabled when the listening mode is DTS
Neo:6 Music.
Pro Logic II Music Panorama (Panorama)
Use this setting to extend the front stereo image to include the
surround speakers for an exciting wraparound effect with side wall
imaging.
On: Select to turn on the PL II Music Panorama mode.
Off: Select to turn off the PL II Music Panorama mode.
Panorama is only enabled when the listening mode is Dolby Pro
Logic II Music.
Pro Logic II Music Dimension (Dimension)
Use this setting to gradually adjust the soundfield forward or
backward. The setting of “3” is the normal position. Change the
setting to “2” or lower to move the sound space forward setting to
“4” or higher to move the sound space backward.
If the stereo recording has excessive broadness or too strong
surroundness, move the sound space forward to get the appropriate
sound balance. In contrast, if the stereo recording is somewhat felt
like monaural or has narrowness, move the sound space backward
to get more surroundness.
Dimension is only enabled when the listening mode is Dolby Pro
Logic II Music.
Pro Logic II Music Center Width (Center Width)
In Pro Logic II decoding, center signals are output from the center
speaker. When the center speaker is not used, the decoder will
divide the center signal equally to both the front left and right
speakers to create a “phantom” center sound image.
The Pro Logic II Music Center Width mode allows you to adjust from
where the center sound image is heard. Using this, you can have the
soundfield be heard from the center speaker only, from the front left
and right speakers only (as a phantom center sound image), or from
all three speakers (center, front left and right) in various level
combinations. For home use, applying some width to the center
signal will improve the level balance for the center and main
speakers, and effect the width of the center sound image, or “weight”
of the sound. Many sound recordings processed for stereo playback
will be reproduced better by proper control of this setting. The
recommended setting for Pro Logic II Music mode is “3.” This allows
you to easily distinguish the Pro Logic II Music mode from the Pro
Logic II Movie mode whose setting is automatically set to “0.”
58
Center Width is only enabled when the listening mode is Dolby Pro
Logic II Music.
LFE Level (TX-SR701/701E only)
The level can be adjusted to either –∞ or between –10 and 0
decibels in 1-decibel increments. For Dolby Digital and DTS input
source signals, the LFE level set here is used. A setting of 0 decibels
is recommended for optimum performance; however, if the source
is recorded with the low frequency range too strong, lower this
setting as necessary.
Academy Filter (TX-SR701/701E only)
Older monaural film mixes relied on high-frequency rolloff in
presentation to sound properly balanced, so that excessive hiss from
the grain structure of the film would not be heard. The highfrequency loss was typically due to a combination of optical slit
loss, electrical filters, loudspeaker response, and screen loss. Some
films have been transferred to video without such a high-frequency
rolloff, and thus sound overly bright and hissy.
The TX-SR701/701E/601/601E includes this “Academy filter,”
which is based on contemporary playback practices for such films
over wide-range systems.
This can be set to either “On” or “Off.”
Input Channel
This allows you to set which input channel to use for monaural sound.
Auto L+R: Select this under normal circumstances. When the
input source is center channel, this center channel is used as the
monaural sound input channel. Otherwise, the left and right
channels are mixed and the mixed signal is used as the
monaural sound input channel.
Left/Right: You will need to select either left or right when
playing a video source that contains bilingual data. In such a case,
the left and right channels will contain the audio for different
languages. Select the channel with the language you desire.
Listening angle
The listening angle is the angle subtended by the front left and right
speakers as seen from the listener. The processing for the virtual
surround will be based on this angle. In the Theater-Dimensional
mode, the setting of 20 and 40 degrees are only for nominal
purposes, so select the setting that is closest to your actual listening
angle.
Front left speaker
Front right speaker
Listening angle
Center
In the Theater-Dimensional mode, if the speaker system has a
center speaker, the center channel signal can be output from the
center speaker. For instance, in systems where the front left and
right speakers are small, use of the center speaker may provide a
better sound space and reduce the load on the front speaker. (For the
proper soundfield, it is important that the speaker levels and speaker
distances among the front right, front left, and center speakers are
matched. In order to ensure this, make sure that the settings in the
Speaker Distance Sub-menu and Level Calibration sub-menu are set
correctly.)
On: Select to have the center channel signal output to the center
speaker.
Off: Select to have the center channel signal output to the front
left and right speakers (Phantom Center).
Audio Adjust
Front Expander
In the Theater-Dimensional mode, the front expander function
spreads out the stereo image in front of the listener. The created
stereo image is as if the front speakers have been farther apart for
the feeling of a wide sound space. This is especially useful for
narrow listening angles of 20 degrees or less.
On: Select to turn on the front expander function to simulate a
wider sound space.
Off: Select to turn off the front expander function for a normal
sound space.
Virtual Surr Level
In the Theater-Dimensional mode, this setting adjusts the level of
the virtual surround signal. This can be set from –3 to +3 decibels.
Lowering this setting can improve the sound when the definition is
unclear or when the sound feels unnatural.
Dialog Enhance
If the dialog from the center channel is difficult to hear in the
Theater-Dimensional mode, use this setting to improve the clarity.
On: Select to enhance the vocal ranges of the center channel
signal.
Off: Select to output the center channel signal at the regular
level and frequency characteristics.
Front Effect (Orchestra, Unplugged, Studio-Mix, TV Logic,
Enhance, Mono Movie)
Some live recordings contain acoustic reverberation. When you
play these sources, more reverberation will be applied by the DSP,
creating too much reverb effects and the sound loses frame or
presence. In this case, set this setting to “Off” so that no
reverberation from the DSP will be applied to the sound output
from the three front channels. With this setting, the sound source is
played as it is without any further reverberation.
Reverb Level (Orchestra, Unplugged, Studio-Mix, TV Logic,
Enhance, Mono Movie)
This setting allows you to adjust the depth of acoustic reverberation
to match the playback source material, the acoustics of your room,
and such other factors.
Select from the three settings “Low,” “Middle,” and “High.”
Reverb Time (Orchestra, Unplugged, Studio-Mix, TV Logic,
Enhance, Mono Movie)
Adjust the reverb time to match the source being played back and
the acoustics of the room. Select from the three settings “Short,”
“Middle,” and “Long.”

Onkyo MD recorders. Be aware that if you enter the preset code for
a satellite tuner as shown on page 65, then this button cannot be
used to operate Onkyo MD recorders.
If this is the case, to operate an Onkyo MD recorder, you must first
erase the satellite tuner code by following the directions given in
“Erasing all the commands programmed under a MODE button” on
page 72.

Entering a pre-programming code
The remote controller has three learning functions. One is entering
the pre-programmed code for a remote controller of another
manufacturer. Another is the normal learning function that enables
the remote controller to learn the codes directly from other remote
controllers (see page 71). And the last is a macro learning function
that enables you to program a series of operations into the remote
controller so that the operations can all be performed at once by
pressing one button.
Learning a pre-programming code
By entering a pre-programming code, you can have the RC-533M/
515M remote controller operate a component made by another
manufacturer. The buttons that are used for operation are given on
the next page.
1. Find the 3-digit number listed for the manufacturer
name of the component that you want to operate in
the table on the next page.
2. Turn on the component that you want to operate (i.e.
DVD, satellite tuner, or television).
SEND/LEARN
indicator
Buttons that can
be preprogrammed
3. While holding down the MODE button on the RC533M/515M that you want to program, press the
DISPLAY button, and then release both buttons.
The SEND/LEARN indicator lights when the MODE button is
pressed and turns off when the DISPLAY button is pressed.
When the indicator turns off, release both buttons. The SEND/
LEARN indicator lights again.
4. Within 30 seconds, enter the 3-digit code number.
VOL
The SEND/LEARN indicator slowly flashes twice. If the
SEND/LEARN indicator quickly flashes three times, then either
a mistaken 3-digit code was entered or an incorrect operation
was performed. If this occurs, return to step 3.
5. Press the button that you programmed and check if
the system operates correctly.
Numeric keys
DISPLAY
Caution
With some brand’s components, some buttons may not work
correctly. In this case, program the command directly from the other
remote controller normally (see page 71).
• If the component does not operate properly, return to step 3
and repeat the steps above.
• If it still does not operate properly, program the command
directly from the other remote controller normally (see page
71).
When entering the code of Onkyo DVD players:
There are three SETTING numbers. Choose the SETTING number
according to how you will be using the DVD player.
No. 601/613: These codes are for operating the Onkyo DVD player
by pointing the remote controller directly at it, either because it
does not have an
terminal, or it does but you are not connecting
it with an
cable. First enter 601 and if it does not operate
properly, enter 613.
No. 600: This code is for Onkyo DVD players that have an
terminal that you are connecting to the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E
with an
cable. You will then operate the DVD player by
pointing the remote controller at the remote control sensor on the
TX-SR701/701E/601/601E. You do not need to enter this code
because it is factory preset. However, if the code has been changed
to 601 or 613, then you will need to change it back to 600.

Programming procedure
2 to 6 inches
(5 to 15 cm)
When programming the commands of another remote controller to
the RC-533M/515M remote controller, you must first decide under
which MODE button you want the commands to be linked. In
general, you will select the MODE button that corresponds to the
component you are programming. For example, if you are
programming the functions from a remote controller for a compact
disc player, you would choose the CD MODE button. Then, by
pressing the CD MODE button, the buttons on the RC-533M/515M
remote controller will change to the commands you program here to
operate the compact disc player.
After programming which MODE button to use, you will then
transfer the separate commands from the other remote controller
over to the RC-533M/515M remote controller one at a time. Each
command is then programmed to a different button on the RC533M/515M remote controller. Any button is programmable for this
step except for the eight MODE buttons (RCVR, CD, DVD, SAT/
MD, TV, VCR, and CABLE), the two MACRO buttons (1 and 2),
and the LIGHT button (RC-533M only).
Even after the commands have been memorized, keep your old
remote controller in a safe place. If for some reason the commands
are lost (e.g., when the batteries run down), it will be necessary to
memorize them once again.
1. Place the remote controller and the remote controller
for the other device facing each other at a distance of
2 to 6 inches (5 to 15 cm) apart.
2. While pressing and holding down the desired MODE
button on the remote controller, press the ENTER
button and then release both buttons.
SEND/LEARN
indicator
The SEND/LEARN indicator lights when the MODE button is
pressed and turns off when the ENTER button is pressed. When
the indicator turns off, release both buttons. The SEND/LEARN
indicator lights again.
3. Press and release the button on the remote controller
to which you want to transfer the next command.
MODE buttons
You may select any button excluding the eleven ones indicated
in the figure below. When you press the button, the SEND/
LEARN indicator turns off. When you release the button, the
indicator lights again.
If you press the wrong button by mistake, press that same button
again. The SEND/LEARN indicator flashes twice, and the
remote controller exits the programming mode.

Programming the commands of remote controllers for other devices into the remote
controller
4. Press and hold down the button (that corresponds to
the command you are programming) on the remote
controller of the other device until the SEND/LEARN
lamp on the remote controller flashes twice.
After flashing twice, the SEND/LEARN indicator will light again.
5. Repeat Steps 3 and 4 to transfer all the commands
you desire from the other remote controller and
program them to buttons on the remote controller
under the same MODE.
Repeat Steps 2 through 4 to program commands to a different
MODE (e.g., when programming from a different remote controller).
6. Press the MODE button that you pressed in step 2 to
complete the programming.
7. Operate the newly programmed buttons to make sure
the learning function was performed properly.
Notes:
• The remote controller codes for Onkyo compact disc players,
cassette tape decks, DVD players, and mini disc recorder have
already been programmed into buttons on the remote controller.
You may, however, use these buttons to program the codes for
other remote controllers. If you wish to restore the Onkyo preset
codes after you program new codes, you must first erase the
new codes.
• The remote controller has 357 memory slots (7 modes × 51
buttons). Some remote controllers may have more commands
that can be remembered by the remote controller. In such cases,
it will be necessary for you to determine which commands are
more important than others.
• If the SEND/LEARN indicator quickly flashes three times and
turns off, then the remote controller has exited the programming
mode because either you have made a mistake during
programming or a time-out has occurred because no button has
been pressed. Resume from Step 2.
• If you try to program beyond the learning capacity of the remote
controller, the SEND/LEARN indicator flashes six times
quickly, and the remote controller exits the programming mode.
Try programming under a different MODE button.
• When you want to program a command to a button to which
you have already programmed a command, simply follow the
same procedure given and the previous programming for that
button will be overwritten.
• The remote controller uses infrared rays to send its commands,
as do most other remote controllers. Though most remote
controller codes can be memorized by the remote controller, be
aware that some remote controllers use systems that are quite
different from the remote controller and therefore may not be
able to be programmed.
• Some remote controllers have a single button that performs
multiple functions (for example, the function may change each
time the button is pressed). If this is the case, each function
must be programmed to a separate button on the remote
controller.
• Once you have transferred the commands from the other remote
controller, refer to the instruction manual that came with that
product for instructions on how to operate that product.
• Make sure both the remote controller and the other remote
controller have new batteries. If either of them has batteries that
are low, you may not be able to program the commands of the
other remote controller properly into the remote controller.
See page 72 for how to erase the memorized commands from all
buttons.
72
Erasing the programmed command from one
button
You can only erase memorized commands and not preset ones.
1. Press and hold down the MODE button for the
command, press the ENTER button, and then release
both buttons.
When you press the MODE button, the SEND/LEARN
indicator lights. When you press the ENTER button, the lamp
turns off. When you release the buttons, the lamp lights again.
2. Press and release the button for the command you
wish to erase.
When you press the button, the SEND/LEARN indicator turns
off. When you release the button, the lamp lights again.
3. Press and release the same button again.
The SEND/LEARN lamp slowly flashes twice. The memorized
command is erased.
Note:
If the SEND/LEARN indicator quickly flashes three times and turns
off, then the remote controller has exited the erasing mode because
either you have made a mistake during erasing or a time-out has
occurred because no button has been pressed. Resume from Step 1.
Erasing all the commands programmed under a
MODE button
1. Press and hold down the desired MODE button, press
the ENTER button twice, and then release both
buttons.
When you press the MODE button, the SEND/LEARN
indicator lights. When you press the ENTER button, the lamp
turns off. When you release the buttons, the lamp slowly flashes
twice and then lights again.
2. Press and release the same MODE button again.
When you release the button, the SEND/LEARN indicator
slowly flashes twice. This erases all the commands memorized
to the MODE button.
Notes:
• If the SEND/LEARN indicator quickly flashes three times and
turns off, then the remote controller has exited the erasing mode
because either you have made a mistake during erasing or a
time-out has occurred because no button has been pressed.
Resume from Step 1.
• If many commands have been programmed to the MODE
button, then the SEND/LEARN indicator may remain lit for up
to 20 seconds during Step 2. This is not a malfunction.
Using the macro function
What is the macro function?
A macro function enables you to program a series of button
operations (up to 16) on the remote controller into a single button.
The series of operations are then called a macro. For example, to
play a compact disc player connected to the TX-SR701/701E/601/
601E normally, you must perform the following steps:
1. Press the RCVR MODE button.
2. Press the ON button.
3. Press the CD (INPUT SELECTOR) button.
4. Press the CD MODE button.
5. Press the playback (
) button.
By using the macro function, you can perform the above five
operations by only pressing one button.
Programming the macro
With the macro function, you can program a series of button
operations as a macro into the MACRO button so the macro can be
executed with just one touch. Note that for the macro function, only
one macro can be programmed. For example, to program the macro
described above on this page for the MACRO button, perform the
steps given below.
1. Press and hold down any one of the seven MODE
buttons, press the MACRO 1 (or 2) button, and then
release both buttons.
When you press the MODE button, it lights and the SEND/
LEARN indicator lights. When you press the MACRO 1 (or 2)
button, the indicator turns off. When you release the buttons, the
indicator flashes briefly and then lights again.
2. Press the operation buttons you wish to program in
order (in this case, press RCVR MODE → ON → CD
(INPUT SELECTOR) → CD MODE → playback ( )
button).

The SEND/LEARN indicator slowly flashes twice.
4. Check to see if the macro has been properly
programmed.
Notes:
• You may program up to 16 button operations into the macro
function. If you try to program a 17th operation, it will be
ignored, and programming is stopped.
• If the SEND/LEARN indicator quickly flashes three times and
turns off, then the remote controller has exited the programming
mode because either you have made a mistake during
programming or a time-out has occurred because no button has
been pressed. Resume from Step 1.
Executing the macro
Perform the procedure below to execute the macro that you have
programmed into the remote controller. After programming the
macro, you should always run it at least once to make sure that it
has been programmed properly.
Point the remote controller at the TX-SR701/701E/601/
601E and press the MACRO 1 (or 2) button.
Tips:
• If you erase or change the command of a button programmed in
the macro, that operation of that button will no longer work in
the macro. In this case, it will be necessary for you to reprogram
the macro in order to avoid incorrect operation.
• The codes programmed into the macro will be transmitted at an
interval of 0.5 seconds. However, some devices may not be able
to complete one operation in 0.5 seconds and may miss the next
code. In this case, after pressing one operation button, you can
press the same MODE button again before pressing the next
operation button to add another 0.5 seconds between the two
operations.
It may take a while for the macro to finish transmitting, so be sure to
continue pointing the remote controller at the device until the
SEND/LEARN indicator turns off.

because either you have made a mistake during erasing or a
time-out has occurred because no button has been pressed.
Resume from Step 1.
• If you press a button other than MACRO 1 (or 2) button in Step
2, then you will in effect be overwriting the previous macro
with a new macro.

The TX-SR701/701E/601/601E contains an internal microcomputer
that performs high-level operations. However, on extremely rare
occasions, noise or interference from an external source or static
electricity may cause faulty operation. If this occurs, unplug the
power cord from the wall outlet, wait five or more seconds, and then
plug it back in. This should correct the situation.
* To reset the surround mode and other settings to the factory
default settings, hold down the VIDEO 1 button with the TXSR701/701E/601/601E turned on and then press the
STANDBY/ON button. “CLEAR” appears in the front display
and the TX-SR701/701E/601/601E enters the standby state.
