The Safety of Your Ears is in Your Hands
Get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a
safe level – a level that lets the sound come through
clearly without annoying blaring or distortion and, most
importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time, your hearing
“comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound, so
what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and
harmful to your hearing. Guard against this by setting
your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing
adapts.
ESTABLISH A SAFE LEVEL:
• Set your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it
comfortably and clearly, without distortion.
• Once you have established a comfortable sound
level, set the dial and leave it there.
BE SURE TO OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING
GUIDELINES:
• Do not turn up the volume so high that you can’t
hear what’s around you.
• Use caution or temporarily discontinue use in
potentially hazardous situations.
• Do not use headphones while operating a motorized
vehicle; the use of headphones may create a traffic
hazard and is illegal in many areas.

Determining the speakers’
application
This unit permits you to build various surround
systems, in accordance with the number of
speakers you have.
! Be sure to connect speakers to the front left
and right channels (L and R).
! It is also possible to only connect one of the
surround back speakers (SB) or neither.
! If you have two subwoofers, the second
subwoofer can be connected to the
SUBWOOFER 2 terminal. Connecting two
subwoofers increases the bass sound to
achieve more powerful sound reproduction. In
this case, the same sound is output from the
two subwoofers.
Choose one from Plans [A] to [E] below.
Important
!The Speaker System setting must be made if
you use any of the connections shown below
other than [A] (see Speaker system setting on
page 69 ).
! Sound does not come through simultaneously
from the front height, front wide, speaker B
and surround back speakers. Output speakers
are different depending on the input signal or
listening mode.

Other speaker connections
! Your favorite speaker connections can be
selected even if you have fewer than 5.2
speakers (except front left/right speakers).
! When not connecting a subwoofer, connect
speakers with low frequency reproduction
capabilities to the front channel. (The
subwoofer’s low frequency component
is played from the front speakers, so the
speakers could be damaged.)
! After connecting, be sure to conduct the
Full Auto MCACC (speaker environment
setting) procedure. See Automatically
conducting optimum sound tuning (Full Auto
MCACC) on page 26 .

! Place the surround speakers at 120º from
the center. If you, (1) use the surround
back speaker, and, (2) don’t use the front
height speakers / front wide speakers, we
recommend placing the surround speaker
right beside you.
! If you intend to connect only one surround
back speaker, place it directly behind you.
! Place the left and right front height speakers
at least one meter (3.3 ft.) directly above the
left and right front speakers.
THX speaker system setup
If you are using a THX certified subwoofer, use
the THX INPUT jack on the subwoofer (if your
subwoofer has one) or switch the filter position
to THX on your subwoofer.
See also THX Audio Setting on page 71 to make
the settings that will give you the best sound
experience when using the Home THX modes
(page 38).
Some tips for improving sound
quality
Where you put your speakers in the room has
a big effect on the quality of the sound. The
following guidelines should help you to get the
best sound from your system.
! The subwoofer can be placed on the floor.
Ideally, the other speakers should be at about
ear-level when you’re listening to them.
Putting the speakers on the floor (except the
subwoofer), or mounting them very high on a
wall is not recommended.
! For the best stereo effect, place the front
speakers 2 m to 3 m (6 ft. to 9 ft.) apart, at
equal distance from the TV.
! If you’re going to place speakers around your
CRT TV, use shielded speakers or place the
speakers at a sufficient distance from your
CRT TV.
! If you’re using a center speaker, place the
front speakers at a wider angle. If not, place
them at a narrower angle.
! Place the center speaker above or below the
TV so that the sound of the center channel is
localized at the TV screen. Also, make sure the
center speaker does not cross the line formed
by the leading edge of the front left and right
speakers.
! It is best to angle the speakers towards the
listening position. The angle depends on
the size of the room. Use less of an angle for
bigger rooms.
! Surround and surround back speakers
should be positioned 60 cm to 90 cm (2 ft. to
3 ft.) higher than your ears and tilted slightly
downward. Make sure the speakers don’t
face each other. For DVD-Audio, the speakers
should be more directly behind the listener
than for home theater playback.
! Try not to place the surround speakers farther
away from the listening position than the front
and center speakers. Doing so can weaken the
surround sound effect.
03
Connecting the speakers
Each speaker connection on the receiver comprises a positive (+) and negative (–) terminal.
Make sure to match these up with the terminals
on the speakers themselves.
CAUTION
! These speaker terminals carry HAZARDOUS
LIVE voltage. To prevent the risk of electric
shock when connecting or disconnecting the
speaker cables, disconnect the power cord
before touching any uninsulated parts.
! Make sure that all the bare speaker wire is
twisted together and inserted fully into the
speaker terminal. If any of the bare speaker
wire touches the back panel it may cause the
power to cut off as a safety measure.
Bare wire connections
CAUTION
Make sure that all speakers are securely
installed. This not only improves sound quality,
but also reduces the risk of damage or injury
resulting from speakers being knocked over or
falling in the event of external shocks such as
earthquakes.

2 Loosen terminal and insert exposed
wire.

Connecting your equipment
Note
! Please refer to the manual that came with
your speakers for details on how to connect
the other end of the speaker cables to your
speakers.
! Use an RCA cable to connect the subwoofer.
It is not possible to connect using speaker
cables.
! If you have two subwoofers, the second
subwoofer can be connected to the
SUBWOOFER 2 terminal. Connecting two
subwoofers increases the bass sound to
achieve more powerful sound reproduction. In
this case, the same sound is output from the
two subwoofers.
Installing your speaker system
At the very least, front left and right speakers only are necessary. Note that your main surround
speakers should always be connected as a pair, but you can connect just one surround back
speaker if you like (it must be connected to the left surround back terminal).
Standard surround connection
The front height terminals can also be used for the front wide and Speaker B speakers.

Connecting your equipment
Bi-amping your speakers
Bi-wiring your speakers
Bi-amping is when you connect the high frequency driver and low frequency driver of your speakers
to different amplifiers for better crossover performance. Your speakers must be bi-ampable to do
this (having separate terminals for high and low) and the sound improvement will depend on the
kind of speakers you’re using.
Your speakers can also be bi-wired if they support bi-amping.
! With these connections, the Speaker System
setting makes no difference.

The video converter ensures that all video
sources are output through all of the MONITOR
VIDEO OUT jacks. The only exception is HDMI:
since this resolution cannot be downsampled,
you must connect your monitor/TV to the
receiver’s HDMI output when connecting this
video source.
If several video components are assigned to
the same input function (see The Input Setup
menu on page 28 ), the converter gives priority
to HDMI, component, then composite (in that
order).
! If the video signal does not appear on your
TV, try adjusting the resolution settings on
your component or display. Note that some
components (such as video game units) have
resolutions that may not be converted. In this
case, try switching Digital Video Conversion
(in Setting the Video options on page 52 ) OFF.
! The signal input resolutions that can be
converted from the component video input
for the HDMI output are 480i/576i, 480p/576p,
720p and 1080i. 1080p signals cannot be
converted.
! Only signals with an input resolution
of 480i/576i can be converted from the
component video input for the composite
MONITOR OUT terminals.
! For optimal video performance, THX
recommends switching Digital Video
Conversion (in Setting the Video options on
page 52 ) OFF.

About HDMI
The HDMI connection transfers uncompressed
digital video, as well as almost every kind of
digital audio.
This receiver incorporates High-Definition
Multimedia Interface (HDMI®) technology.
This receiver supports the functions described
below through HDMI connections.
! Digital transfer of uncompressed video
(contents protected by HDCP (1080p/24,
1080p/60, etc.))
! 3D signal transfer
! Deep Color signal transfer
! x.v.Color signal transfer
! ARC (Audio Return Channel)
! Input of multi-channel linear PCM digital
audio signals (192 kHz or less) for up to 8
channels
! Input of the following digital audio formats:
—Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS, High
bitrate audio (Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master
Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio),
DVD-Audio, CD, SACD (DSD signal), Video
CD, Super VCD
! Synchronized operation with components
using the Control with HDMI function (see
Control with HDMI function on page 47 )
Note
! An HDMI connection can only be made
with DVI-equipped components compatible
with both DVI and High Bandwidth Digital
Content Protection (HDCP). If you choose to
connect to a DVI connector, you will need a
separate adaptor (DVIdHDMI) to do so. A DVI
connection, however, does not support audio
signals. Consult your local audio dealer for
more information.
Connecting your equipment
! If you connect a component that
is not compatible with HDCP, an
HDCP ERROR message is displayed on the
front panel display. Some components that
are compatible with HDCP still cause this
message to be displayed, but so long as there
is no problem with displaying video this is not
a malfunction.
! Depending on the component you have
connected, using a DVI connection may result
in unreliable signal transfers.
! This receiver supports SACD, Dolby Digital
Plus, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master
Audio. To take advantage of these formats,
however, make sure that the component
connected to this receiver also supports the
corresponding format.
! Use a High Speed HDMI® cable. If an HDMI
cable other than a High Speed HDMI® cable is
used, it may not work properly.
! When an HDMI cable with a built-in equalizer
is connected, it may not operate properly.
! Signal transfer is only possible when
connected to a compatible component.
! HDMI format digital audio transmissions
require a longer time to be recognized. Due to
this, interruption in the audio may occur when
switching between audio formats or beginning
playback.
! Turning on/off the device connected to this
unit’s HDMI OUT terminal during playback,
or disconnecting/connecting the HDMI
cable during playback, may cause noise or
interrupted audio.

! If you’re not using a subwoofer, change the front speaker setting (see Speaker Setting on page 66 ) to
LARGE.
! You can use the additional amplifier on the surround back channel pre-outs for a single speaker as
well. In this case plug the amplifier into the left (SURROUND BACK L (Single)) terminal only.
! The sound from the surround back terminals will depend on how you have configured the Speaker
system setting on page 69 .
! If you have two subwoofers, the second subwoofer can be connected to the SUBWOOFER 2
terminal. Connecting two subwoofers increases the bass sound to achieve more powerful sound
reproduction. In this case, the same sound is output from the two subwoofers.
! To hear sound only from the pre-outs, switch the speaker system to OFF, or simply disconnect any
speakers that are connected directly to the receiver.

This receiver can power up to three (VSX-1326)/
two (VSX-1126) independent systems in separate rooms after you have made the proper
MULTI-ZONE connections.
Different sources can be playing in three (VSX1326)/two (VSX-1126) zones at the same time
or, depending on your needs, the same source
can also be used. The main and sub zone have
independent power (the main zone power can
be off while one (or both) of the sub zones is
on) and the sub zones can be controlled by the
remote or front panel controls.

The Full Auto MCACC Setup measures the
acoustic characteristics of your listening area,
taking into account ambient noise, speaker
connection and speaker size, and tests for both
channel delay and channel level. After you have
set up the microphone provided with your system, the receiver uses the information from a
series of test tones to optimize the speaker settings and equalization for your particular room.
VSX-1326 only: By performing the Full Auto
MCACC Setup procedure, the frequency-phase
characteristics of the connected speakers are
also calibrated.
Once the Full Auto MCACC Setup procedure is
completed, the Full Band Phase Control function is automatically turned on (page 39).
Important

confirm the speaker configuration in the
GUI screen.
A progress report is displayed on-screen while
the receiver outputs test tones to determine
the speakers present in your setup. Try to be as
quiet as possible while it’s doing this.

The configuration shown on-screen should
reflect the actual speakers you have.
! If you see an ERR message (or the speaker
configuration displayed isn’t correct),
there may be a problem with the speaker
connection. If selecting RETRY doesn’t work,
turn off the power and check the speaker
connections. If there doesn’t seem to be a
problem, you can simply use i/j to select
the speaker and k/l to change the setting
and continue.
! If the speaker is not pointed to the
microphone (listening position) or when
using speakers that affect the phase
(dipole speakers, reflective speakers, etc.),
Reverse Phase may be displayed even if the
speakers are properly connected.
If Reverse Phase is displayed, the speaker’s
wiring (+ and –) may be inverted. Check the
speaker connections.
— If the connections were wrong, turn off
the power, disconnect the power cord,
then reconnect properly. After this,
perform the Full Auto MCACC procedure
again.
— If the connections were right, select
GO NEXT and continue.
Be sure to disconnect the microphone from
this receiver upon completion of the Full Auto
MCACC Setup.
The settings made in the Full Auto MCACC
Setup should give you excellent surround
sound from your system, but it is also possible
to adjust these settings manually using The
Advanced MCACC menu on page 62 or The
System Setup and Other Setup menus on page
69 .
! Depending on the characteristics of your
room, sometimes identical speakers with
cone sizes of around 12 cm (5 inches) will
end up with different size settings. You
can correct the setting manually using the
Manual speaker setup on page 69 .
! The subwoofer distance setting may be
farther than the actual distance from the
listening position. This setting should
be accurate (taking delay and room
characteristics into account) and generally
does not need to be changed.
! If Full Auto MCACC Setup measurement
results are incorrect due to the interaction of
the speakers and viewing environment, we
recommend adjusting the settings manually.
04
Problems when using the Auto
MCACC Setup
If the room environment is not optimal for the
Auto MCACC Setup (too much background
noise, echo off the walls, obstacles blocking
the speakers from the microphone) the final
settings may be incorrect. Check for household
appliances (air conditioner, fridge, fan, etc.),
that may be affecting the environment and
switch them off if necessary. If there are any
instructions showing in the front panel display,
please follow them.
! Some older TVs may interfere with the
operation of the microphone. If this seems to
be happening, switch off the TV when doing
the Auto MCACC Setup.

Basic playback
Listening to the radio
The following steps show you how to tune in to
FM and AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the frequency of the
station you want, see Tuning directly to a station below. Once you are tuned to a station you
can memorize the frequency for recall later-see
Saving station presets on page 33 for more on
how to do this.
1 Press TUNER to select the tuner.
2 Use BAND to change the band (FM or
AM), if necessary.
3 Tune to a station.
There are three ways to do this:
! Automatic tuning – To search for stations
in the currently selected band, press and
hold TUNE i/j for about a second. The
receiver will start searching for the next
station, stopping when it has found one.
Repeat to search for other stations.
! Manual tuning – To change the frequency
one step at a time, press TUNE i/j.
! High speed tuning – Press and hold TUNE
i/j for high speed tuning. Release the
button at the frequency you want.
Improving FM sound
If the TUNED or STEREO indicator doesn’t
light when tuning to an FM station because the
signal is weak, press MPX to switch the receiver
into mono reception mode. This should improve
the sound quality and allow you to enjoy the
broadcast.
Using Neural Surround
This feature uses Neural SurroundTM technologies to achieve optimal surround sound from
FM radio.
! While listening to FM radio, press
AUTO/ALC/DIRECT for Neural Surround.
!The Neural Surround mode can be selected
also with STANDARD.
4 Press ENTER.
Tuning directly to a station
Listening to station presets
After pressing ENTER, the preset class and
number stop blinking and the receiver stores
the station.

1 Press TUNER to select the tuner.
2 Use BAND to change the band (FM or
AM), if necessary.
2 Press CLASS to select the class in which
the station is stored.
3 Press D.ACCESS (Direct Access).
Press repeatedly to cycle through classes A to
G.
4 Use the number buttons to enter the
frequency of the radio station.
For example, to tune to 106.00 (FM), press 1, 0,
6, 0, 0.
If you make a mistake halfway through, press
D.ACCESS twice to cancel the frequency and
start over.
Saving station presets
3 Press PRESET k/l to select the
station preset you want.
! You can also use the number buttons on the
remote control to recall the station preset.
Naming station presets
For easier identification, you can name your
station presets.
If you often listen to a particular radio station,
it’s convenient to have the receiver store the
frequency for easy recall whenever you want
to listen to that station. This saves the effort of
manually tuning in each time. This receiver can
memorize up to 63 stations, stored in seven
banks, or classes (A to G) of 9 stations each.
1 Choose the station preset you want to
name.
1 Tune to a station you want to
memorize.
3 Input the name you want.
See Listening to the radio on page 33 for more
on this.
2 Press T.EDIT (TUNER EDIT).
The display shows PRESET MEMORY, then a
blinking memory class.
3 Press CLASS to select one of the seven
classes, then press PRESET k/l to select
the station preset you want.
You can also use the number buttons to select a
station preset.
See Listening to station presets on page 33 for
how to do this.

Better sound using Phase
Control
This receiver’s Phase Control feature uses
phase correction measures to make sure your
sound source arrives at the listening position in
phase, preventing unwanted distortion and/or
coloring of the sound.
Phase Control technology provides coherent
sound reproduction through the use of phase
matching for an optimal sound image. The
default setting is on and we recommend leaving Phase Control switched on for all sound
sources.

to the receiver operation
2 Press PHASE CTRL (PHASE CONTROL) to
switch on phase correction.
The PHASE CONTROL indicator on the front
panel lights.
Note
! Phase matching is a very important factor
in achieving proper sound reproduction.
If two waveforms are ‘in phase’, they crest
and trough together, resulting in increased
amplitude, clarity and presence of the sound
signal. If a crest of a wave meets a trough,
then the sound will be ‘out of phase’ and an
unreliable sound image will be produced.
! For discs created with standards other than
Phase Control, the LFE channel is delayed
upon recording in the first place. Phase
Control Plus function corrects for phase
shifting on such discs. For instructions on
setting the Phase Control Plus, see Setting the
Audio options on page 50 .
!The PHASE CONTROL feature is available
even when the headphones are plugged in.
! If your subwoofer has a phase control switch,
set it to the plus (+) sign (or 0º). However,
the effect you can actually feel when
06
PHASE CONTROL is set to ON on this receiver
depends on the type of your subwoofer. Set
your subwoofer to maximize the effect. It is
also recommended you try changing the
orientation or the place of your subwoofer.
! Set the built-in lowpass filter switch of your
subwoofer to off. If this cannot be done on
your subwoofer, set the cutoff frequency to a
higher value.
! If the speaker distance is not properly set, you
may not have a maximized PHASE CONTROL
effect.
!The PHASE CONTROL mode cannot be set to
ON in the following cases:
—When the PURE DIRECT mode is switched
on.
—When the HDMI audio output parameter is
set to THROUGH in Setting the Setting the
Audio options on page 50 .
Better sound using Phase
Control and Full Band Phase
Control
VSX-1326 only
This receiver is equipped with the two types
of functions that correct phase distortion and
group delay: Phase Control and Full Band
Phase Control. Activating Full Band Phase
Control is strongly recommended because it
also involves the effects of Phase Control.
The Full Band Phase Control feature calibrates
the frequency-phase characteristics of the
speakers connected.
Standard speakers designed exclusively for
audio use generally reproduce sound with the
divided frequency bands output from a speaker
system consisting of multiple speakers (in
case of typical 3-way speakers, for instance,
the tweeter, the squawker (midrange), and the
woofer output sound in the high-, middle-, and
low-frequency ranges, respectively). Though
these speakers are designed to flatten the
En

06
Listening to your system
frequency-amplitude characteristics across
wide ranges, there are cases where the group
delay characteristics are not effectively flattened. This phase distortion of the speakers
subsequently causes group delay (the delay of
low-frequency sound against high-frequency
sound) during audio signal playback.
This receiver analyzes the frequency-phase
characteristics of the speakers by measuring
test signals output from the speakers with the
supplied microphone, therefore flattening the
analyzed frequency-phase characteristics during audio signal playback - the same correction
is made for a pair of left and right speakers.
This correction minimizes group delay between
the ranges of a speaker and improves the frequency-phase characteristics across all ranges.
Furthermore, the enhanced frequency-phase
characteristics between channels ensure better
surround sound integration for multichannel
setting.

Listening to Internet radio
stations
Internet radio is an audio broadcasting service
transmitted via the Internet. There are a large
number of Internet radio stations broadcasting a variety of services from every corner of
the world. Some are hosted, managed, and
broadcast by private individuals while others
are by the corresponding traditional terrestrial
radio stations or radio networks. Whereas terrestrial, or OTA (over-the-air), radio stations are
geographically restricted on the range of radio
waves broadcast from a transmitter through
the air, Internet radio stations are accessible
from anywhere in the world, as long as there is
a connection to the Internet, as services are not
transmitted through the air but are delivered
over the World Wide Web. On this receiver you
can select Internet radio stations by genre as
well as by region.
Depending on the Internet line conditions,
the sound may not be smooth when playing
Internet radio.

be played through the receiver from the TV’s
menu screen, etc. This receiver will power up
and switch to the synchronized amp mode.
! When the synchronized amp mode is
canceled, the receiver’s power turns off if you
were viewing an HDMI input or a TV program
on the TV.
! When in the synchronized amp mode, the
synchronized amp mode is canceled if an
operation that produces sound from the TV is
performed from the TV’s menu screen, etc.
! When the TV’s power is set to standby, the
receiver’s power is also set to standby. (Only
when the input for a component connected to
the receiver by HDMI connection is selected or
when watching the TV.)
! The receiver’s input switches automatically

About connections with a product
of a different brand that supports
the Control with HDMI function
The synchronized operations below can be used
when the receiver’s Control with HDMI function is connected to a TV of a brand other than
Pioneer that supports the Control with HDMI
function. (Depending on the TV, however, some
of the Control with HDMI functions may not
work.)
! When the TV’s power is set to standby, the
receiver’s power is also set to standby. (Only
when the input for a component connected to
the receiver by HDMI connection is selected or
when watching the TV)
! The sound of TV programs or an external
input connected to the TV can also be output
from the speakers connected to the receiver.
(If the TV does not support the HDMI ARC
(Audio Return Channel) function, this requires
connection of an optical digital cable, etc., in
addition to the HDMI cable.)
The synchronized operations below can be
used when the receiver’s Control with HDMI
function is connected to a player or recorder of
a brand other than Pioneer that supports the
Control with HDMI function.
! When playback starts on the player or
recorder, the receiver’s input switches to
the HDMI input to which that component is
connected.
See the Pioneer website for the latest information on the models of non-Pioneer brands and
products that support the Control with HDMI
function.
Setting the PQLS function
PQLS (Precision Quartz Lock System) is a
digital audio signal transfer control technology
using the Control with HDMI function. It offers
higher-quality audio playback by controlling
audio signals from the receiver to a PQLS compatible player, etc. This enables removing jitter
that has a negative effect on the quality of the
sound and is generated upon transmission.
! On players compatible with PQLS Bit-stream,
PQLS always works for all sources.
! On players compatible with PQLS Multi
Surround, PQLS works for all sources. Set the
player’s audio output to Linear PCM.
! On players compatible with PQLS 2 ch Audio,
PQLS only works when playing CDs.
Please refer to the operating instructions supplied with your player for more information.
This function is activated when Control is set
to ON.
! If a listening mode other than
AUTO SURROUND, ALC, DIRECT,
PURE DIRECT, OPTIMUM SURR or STEREO is
selected while the PQLS effect is enabled, the
PQLS effect is disabled.
! When this receiver is connected by HDMI
cable to a Pioneer player that is compatible
with the PQLS function via HDMI connection
and HDMI reauthentication is performed
(the HDMI indicator blinks), the PQLS effect
is enabled and the listening mode is set to
AUTO SURROUND if a listening mode other
than AUTO SURROUND, ALC, DIRECT,
PURE DIRECT, OPTIMUM SURR or STEREO is
selected.

then press PQLS to select the PQLS
setting.
The setting is displayed on the front panel
display.
! PQLS AUTO – PQLS is enabled. A precision
quartz controller in this receiver eliminates
distortion caused by timing errors (jitter),
giving you the best possible digital-to-analog
conversion when you use the HDMI interface.
This is valid as an HDMI function for PQLScompatible players.
! PQLS OFF – PQLS is disabled.
Cautions on the Control with
HDMI function
! Connect the TV directly to this receiver.
Interrupting a direct connection with other
amps or an AV converter (such as an HDMI
switch) can cause operational errors.
! Only connect components (Blu-ray Disc
player, etc.) you intend to use as a source to
the HDMI input of this receiver. Interrupting
a direct connection with other amps or an
AV converter (such as an HDMI switch) can
cause operational errors.
!When Control is set to ON, HDMI Input
in The Input Setup menu on page 28 is
automatically set to OFF.
! When the receiver’s Control is turned ON,
even if the receiver’s power is in the standby
mode, it is possible to output the audio and
video signals from a player via HDMI to
the TV without producing sound from the
receiver, but only when a Control with HDMIcompatible component (Blu-ray Disc player,
etc.) and compatible TV are connected. In this
case, the receiver’s power turns on and the
power and HDMI indicators light.

Making an audio or a video
recording
You can make an audio or a video recording
from the built-in tuner, or from an audio or video
source connected to the receiver (such as a CD
player or TV).
Keep in mind you can’t make a digital recording from an analog source or vice-versa, so
make sure the components you are recording
to/from are hooked up in the same way (see
Connecting your equipment on page 11 for more
on connections).
! The receiver’s volume, Audio parameters (the
tone controls, for example), and surround
effects have no effect on the recorded signal.
! Some digital sources are copy-protected, and
can only be recorded in analog.
! Some video sources are copy-protected. These
cannot be recorded.
Since the video converter is not available when
making recordings (from the video OUT jacks)
make sure to use the same type of video cable
for connecting your recorder as you used to
connect your video source (the one you want to
record) to this receiver. For example, you must
connect your recorder using Component video
if your source has also been connected using
Component video.
Use the input function buttons (or
INPUT SELECT).
Tune to the radio station, load the CD, video,
DVD etc.
3 Select the input signal according to the
signal to be recorded.
Use the remote control’s SIGNAL SEL button.
4 Prepare the recorder.
Insert a blank tape, MD, video etc. into the
recording device and set the recording levels.
Refer to the instructions that came with the
recorder if you are unsure how to do this. Most
video recorders set the audio recording level
automatically-check the component’s instruction manual if you’re unsure.
5 Start recording, then start playback of
the source component.
Reducing the level of an
analog signal
The input attenuator lowers the input level of an
analog signal when it’s too strong. You can use

input functions. The remote control
codes of a number of other devices
(including products of other brands)
are preset in the remote control to
allow these devices to be operated.
See Selecting preset codes directly on
page 56 .
Code
learning
If the desired operations cannot be
performed even though you have set
the preset codes, the remote control
signals of other devices can be learned
directly. See Programming signals from
other remote controls on page 57 .
Multi
operation
A series of the remote control operations for starting listening or viewing
can be programmed. Multiple remote
control codes can be set for the different input functions. See Multi Operation and System Off on page 58 .
System

This is a function for automatically
turning off the power of devices connected to the receiver. Multiple remote
control codes can be set, as desired.
See Multi Operation and System Off on
page 58 .
Setting
What it does
Direct
function
This is a setting for changing only the
remote control unit’s operation screen,
without changing the receiver’s input,
when the remote control unit’s input
function buttons are pressed. This
is convenient for using the remote
control unit for devices not connected
to the receiver. See Direct function on
page 57 .
Erase
learning
This function is used to erase remote
control codes that have been learned.
Codes learned for the different input
functions can be erased individually.
See Erasing one of the remote control
button settings on page 57 .
Back light
The backlight lighting pattern can be
selected from among four modes, in
consideration of convenience and
battery service life. See Setting the
backlight mode on page 58 .
Reset
function
This is a function for resetting preset
codes that have been set. Key resetting can be done for individual input
functions. See Erasing all learnt settings that are in one input function on
page 57 .
All reset
This is a function for resetting all
remote control unit settings you have
made to the defaults set upon shipment from the factory. See Resetting
the remote control settings on page 59 .
Change
RC mode
If you have multiple Pioneer receivers,
amplifiers, etc., this setting can be

! To cancel the preset setup mode press
RCU SETUP.
2 Press the number button for the
receiver (“Receiver 1” to “Receiver 4”) you
wish to operate.
For example, to operate “Receiver 2”, press ‘2’.
If the LED lights for one second and continues
to flash, the setting has been successfully
completed.
When the preset code is input, the LED flashes
three times to indicate that the setting has
failed.
Setting the remote to control
other components
Most components can be assigned to one of
the input function buttons (such as DVD or CD)
using the component’s manufacturer preset
code stored in the remote.
56
En
However, there are cases where only certain
functions may be controllable after assigning
the proper preset code, or the codes for the
manufacturer in the remote control will not
work for the model that you are using.
If you can’t find a preset code that matches the
component you want to control, you can still
teach the remote individual commands from
another remote control (see Programming signals from other remote controls on page 57 ).
! For greater convenience, assign the TV
connected to the MONITOR OUT terminal to
the TV CTRL button, and assign your satellite/
cable receiver or set-top box connected to the
TV/SAT input terminal to the TV/SAT input
button. If a single device is connected to both
terminals, that device should be assigned to
both the TV CTRL and TV/SAT input buttons.
! Devices may be assigned to the following
input function buttons.

Making receiver settings from
the Advanced MCACC menu
The Advanced MCACC (Multi Channel ACoustic
Calibration) system was developed in Pioneer’s
laboratories with the aim of making it possible
for home users to perform adjustments of the
same level as in a studio easily and with high
precision. The acoustic characteristics of the
listening environment are measured and the
frequency response is calibrated accordingly
to allow high precision, automatic analysis and
optimal calibration of the sound field to bring it
closer to a studio environment than ever before.
Furthermore, while it was previously difficult
to eliminate standing waves, this receiver is
equipped with a standing wave control function
using a unique process to perform acoustic
analysis and reduce their influence.
This section describes how to calibrate the
sound field automatically and fine-adjust the
sound field data manually.
1Press u RECEIVER to switch on the
receiver and your TV.
Make sure that the TV’s video input is set to this
receiver.
2Press
on the remote control,
then press HOME MENU.
A Graphical User Interface (GUI) screen
appears on your TV. Use i/j/k/l and
ENTER to navigate through the screens and
select menu items. Press RETURN to exit the
current menu.
!Press HOME MENU at any time to exit the
Home Menu.
3 Select ‘Advanced MCACC’ from the
Home Menu, then press ENTER.

En
4 Select the setting you want to adjust.
! Full Auto MCACC – See Automatically
conducting optimum sound tuning (Full Auto
MCACC) on page 26 for a quick and effective
automatic surround setup.
! Auto MCACC – See Automatic MCACC
(Expert) on page 62 for a more detailed
MCACC setup.
VSX-1326 only: In addition, the Full Band
Phase Control function calibrates the
frequency-phase characteristics of the
connected speakers.
! Manual MCACC – Fine-tunes your speaker
settings and customizes the Acoustic
Calibration EQ (see Manual MCACC setup on
page 64 ).
! Demo – No settings are saved and no errors
occur. When the speakers are connected
to this receiver, the test tone is output
repeatedly. Press RETURN to cancel the test
tone.
Automatic MCACC (Expert)
If your setup requires more detailed settings
than those provided in Automatically conducting
optimum sound tuning (Full Auto MCACC) on
page 26 , you can customize your setup options
below. You can calibrate your system differently
for up to six different MCACC presets, which are
useful if you have different listening positions
depending on the type of source (for example,
watching movies from a sofa, or playing a video
game close to the TV).
Important
! Make sure the microphone/speakers are not
moved during the Auto MCACC Setup.
! The screen saver will automatically appear
after five minutes of inactivity.
CAUTION
! The test tones used in the Auto MCACC Setup
are output at high volume.
1 Select ‘Auto MCACC’ from the
Advanced MCACC menu, then press
ENTER.
If the Advanced MCACC screen is not displayed, refer to Making receiver settings from the
Advanced MCACC menu on page 62 .
2 Select the parameters you want to set.
Use i/j to select the item, then use k/l to
set.
! Auto MCACC – The default is ALL
(recommended), but you can limit the system
calibration to only one setting (to save time) if
you want.
— When data measurement is taken (after
selecting ALL or Keep SP System), the
reverb characteristics data (both beforeand after-calibration) that this receiver
had been storing will be overwritten.
— When measurement is performed
with other than SYMMETRY (after
selecting ALL or Keep SP System),
the reverberation characteristics after
calibration cannot be predicted, so
the graph for the characteristics after
calibration (“After”) cannot be displayed.
If you will need to display the graph for
the characteristics after calibration
(“After”), take the measurement using
the EQ Professional menu in the
Manual MCACC setup (page 64).
—The EQ Pro & S-Wave measurement is
also taken when ALL or Keep SP System
is selected. See Acoustic Calibration EQ
Professional on page 65 for more on this.
— Either effect of Acoustic Calibration EQ
Professional and Standing Wave can
be switched on and off in the respective
MCACC preset. For details, see Setting
the Audio options on page 50 .
! EQ Type (only available when
the Auto MCACC Menu above is
EQ Pro & S-Wave) – This determines how
the frequency balance is adjusted.
After a single calibration is performed, each
of the following three correction curves can
be stored separately in the MCACC memory.
SYMMETRY implements symmetric correction for each pair of left and right speakers
to flatten the frequency-amplitude characteristics. ALL CH ADJ is a ‘flat’ setting where
all the speakers are set individually so no
special weighting is given to any one channel.
FRONT ALIGN sets all speakers in accordance
with the front speaker settings (no equalization
is applied to the front left and right channels).
If you selected ALL or Keep SP System as
your Auto MCACC menu, you can specify the
MCACC preset where you want to save the
SYMMETRY, ALL CH ADJ and FRONT ALIGN
settings.
! THX Speaker (only available when the
Auto MCACC Menu above is ALL or
Speaker Setting) – Select YES when using
THX speakers (all speakers other than the
front speakers are set to SMALL). In other
cases, leave at NO.
! STAND.WAVE Multi-Point (only available
when the Auto MCACC Menu above
is EQ Pro & S-Wave) – In addition to
measurements at the listening position,
you can use two more reference points for
which test tones will be analyzed for standing
waves. This is useful if you want to get a
balanced ‘flat’ calibration for several seating
positions in your listening area. Place the
microphone at the reference point indicated
on-screen and note that the last microphone
placement will be at your main listening

if the microphone is placed on a table, sofa,
etc.
4 When you’re finished setting the
options, select START then press ENTER.
5 Follow the instructions on-screen.
The configuration shown on-screen should
reflect the actual speakers you have.
If no operations are performed for 10 seconds
while the speaker configuration check screen
is being displayed, the Auto MCACC Setup will
resume automatically. In this case, you don’t
need to select ‘OK’ and press ENTER in step 8.
! If you see an ERR message (or the speaker
configuration displayed isn’t correct),
there may be a problem with the speaker
connection. If selecting RETRY doesn’t work,
turn off the power and check the speaker
connections. If there doesn’t seem to be a
problem, you can simply use i/j to select
the speaker and k/l to change the setting
and continue.
! If the speaker is not pointed to the
microphone (listening position) or when
using speakers that affect the phase
(dipole speakers, reflective speakers, etc.),
Reverse Phase may be displayed even if the
speakers are properly connected.
If Reverse Phase is displayed, the speaker’s
wiring (+ and –) may be inverted. Check the
speaker connections.
— If the connections were wrong, turn off
the power, disconnect the power cord,
then reconnect properly. After this,
perform the Auto MCACC procedure
again.
— If the connections were right, select
GO NEXT and continue.
8 Make sure ‘OK’ is selected, then press
ENTER.

MCACC Data on page 66 ).
Press RETURN after you have finished checking each screen. When you’re finished, select
RETURN to go back to the Home Menu.
Be sure to disconnect the microphone from this
receiver upon completion of the Auto MCACC
Setup.
9 The Auto MCACC Setup procedure
is completed and the Advanced MCACC
menu reappears automatically.
The settings made in the Auto MCACC Setup
should give you excellent surround sound
from your system, but it is also possible to
adjust these settings manually using the
Manual MCACC setup menu (starting below)
or Manual SP Setup menu (starting on page
69).

! For comparison purposes, the reference
speaker will change depending on which
speaker you select.
! If you want to go back and adjust a channel,
simply use i/j to select it.
4 When you’re finished, press RETURN.
You will return to the Manual MCACC setup
menu.
Fine Speaker Distance
! Default setting: 10’00’’ (all speakers)
For proper sound depth and separation with
your system, it is necessary to add a slight bit of
delay to some speakers so that all sounds will
arrive at the listening position at the same time.
You can adjust the distance of each speaker
in half inch increments. The following setting
can help you make detailed adjustments that
you may not achieve using the Manual speaker
setup on page 69 .
1 Select ‘Fine SP Distance’ from the
Manual MCACC setup menu.
1 Select ‘Fine Channel Level’ from the
Manual MCACC setup menu.
2 Adjust the distance of the left channel
from the listening position.
The volume increases to the 0.0 dB reference
level.
3 Select each channel in turn and adjust
the distance as necessary.
2 Adjust the level of the left channel.
This will be the reference speaker level, so you
may want to keep the level around 0.0dB so that
you’ll have plenty of room to adjust the other
speaker levels.
Use k/l to adjust the delay of the speaker you
selected to match the reference speaker.
Listen to the reference speaker and use it to
measure the target channel. From the listening
position, face the two speakers with your arms
outstretched pointing at each speaker. Try to
make the two tones sound as if they are arriving
simultaneously at a position slightly in front of
you and between your arm span.
! If you can’t seem to achieve this by adjusting
the distance setting, you may need to change
the angle of your speakers very slightly.
! The subwoofer’s test tone differs in tone from
other channels. Adjust so that the sound
of the subwoofer can be heard distinctly.
Note that when adjusting the subwoofer,
depending on the low frequency response of
your speaker, it may be difficult to hear the
change even when the setting is increased
or decreased or when the position of the
speaker is changed. Note that it may be
difficult to compare this tone with the other
speakers in your setup (depending on the
low frequency response of the reference
speaker).
When it sounds like the delay settings are
matched up, press j to confirm and continue
to the next channel.
! For comparison purposes, the reference
speaker will change depending on which
speaker you select.
! If you want to go back and adjust a channel,
simply use i/j to select it.
4 When you’re finished, press RETURN.
You will return to the Manual MCACC setup
menu.

Standing Wave
Acoustic Calibration EQ Adjust
! Default setting: ON/ATT 0.0dB (all filters)
Acoustic standing waves occur when, under
certain conditions, sound waves from your
speaker system resonate mutually with sound
waves reflected off the walls in your listening area. This can have a negative effect on
the overall sound, especially at certain lower
frequencies. Depending on speaker placement, your listening position, and ultimately
the shape of your room, it results in an overly
resonant (‘boomy’) sound. The Standing Wave
Control uses filters to reduce the effect of overly
resonant sounds in your listening area. During
playback of a source, you can customize the
filters used for Standing Wave Control for each
of your MCACC presets.
! Standing Wave control filter settings cannot
be changed during playback of sources using
the HDMI connection.
! Default setting: ON/0.0dB (all channels/
bands)
Acoustic Calibration Equalization is a kind of
room equalizer for your speakers (excluding the
subwoofer). It works by measuring the acoustic
characteristics of your room and neutralizing
the ambient characteristics that can color the
original source material (providing a ‘flat’ equalization setting). If you’re not satisfied with the
adjustment provided in Automatically conducting optimum sound tuning (Full Auto MCACC)
on page 26 or Automatic MCACC (Expert) on
page 62 , you can also adjust these settings
manually to get a frequency balance that suits
your tastes.
1 Select ‘Standing Wave’ from the
Manual MCACC setup menu.
Use i/j to select the channel.
Use k/l to select the frequency and i/j
to boost or cut the EQ. When you’re finished,
go back to the top of the screen and press k
to return to Ch, then use i/j to select the
channel.
!The OVER! indicator shows in the display
if the frequency adjustment is too drastic
and might distort. If this happens, bring the
level down until OVER! disappears from the
display.
2 Adjust the parameters for the Standing
Wave Control.
! Filter Channel – Select the channel to which
you will apply the filter(s): MAIN (all except
center channel and subwoofer), Center or
SW (subwoofer).
! TRIM (only available when the filter channel
above is SW) – Adjust the subwoofer channel
level (to compensate for the difference in
output post-filter).
! Freq / Q / ATT – These are the filter
parameters where Freq represents the
frequency you will be targeting and Q is the
bandwidth (the higher the Q, the narrower
the bandwidth, or range) of the attenuation
(ATT, the amount of reduction to the targeted
frequency).
3 When you’re finished, press RETURN.
You will return to the Manual MCACC setup
menu.
1 Select ‘EQ Adjust’ from the
Manual MCACC setup menu.
2 Select the channel(s) you want and
adjust to your liking.
3 When you’re finished, press RETURN.
You will return to the Manual MCACC setup
menu.
Note
! Changing the frequency curve of one channel
too drastically will affect the overall balance. If
the speaker balance seems uneven, you can
raise or lower channel levels using test tones
with the TRIM feature. Use k/l to select
TRIM, then use i/j to raise or lower the
channel level for the current speaker.
Acoustic Calibration EQ
Professional
This setup minimizes the unwanted effects of
room reverberation by allowing you to calibrate
your system based on the direct sound coming
from the speakers.
Performing the Acoustic Calibration EQ
Professional procedure is effective when the
lower frequencies seem overly reverberant in
your listening room (i.e. it sounds ‘boomy’) as
shown at Type A below, or when different channels seem to exhibit different reverb characteristics as shown at Type B.

— If the Reverb View procedure is
performed after the Automatically
conducting optimum sound tuning
(Full Auto MCACC) on page 26 or
Reverb Measurement operation,
depending on the standing wave control
setting, differences may appear on the
reverb graph. With the Auto MCACC
function, the reverberations are
measured with the standing waves
controlled, so the reverb characteristics
graph shows the characteristics with the
effect of the standing waves eliminated.
By contrast, the Reverb Measurement
function measures the reverberations
without controlling the standing waves,
so the graph indicates the reverb
characteristics including the effect
of the standing waves. If you wish to
check the reverb characteristics of the
room itself (with the standing waves
as such), we recommend using the
Reverb Measurement function.
! Advanced EQ Setup – Use this to select the

adjustment and calibration, based on the
reverb measurement of your listening area.
Note that customizing system calibration
using this setup will alter the settings you

The following options determine how the reverb
characteristics of your listening area are displayed in Reverb View:
! EQ OFF – You will see the reverb
characteristics of your listening area without
the equalization performed by this receiver
(before calibration).
! EQ ON – You will see the reverb
characteristics of your listening area with the
equalization performed by this receiver (after
calibration). Note that the EQ response may
not appear entirely flat due to adjustments
necessary for your listening area.
— The calibration corresponding to the
currently selected MCACC preset will be
used when EQ ON is selected. To use
another MCACC preset, press MCACC to
select the MCACC memory you want to
store.
— After auto calibration with EQ Type
: SYMMETRY (Full Auto MCACC,
etc.), the graph for the inferred reverb
characteristics can be displayed by
selecting Reverb View. To display the
actually measured reverb characteristics
after EQ calibration, measure with
EQ ON.
When the reverb measurement is finished,
you can select Reverb View to see the results
on-screen. See Professional Calibration EQ
graphical output on page 79 for troubleshooting
information.
4 If you selected ‘Reverb View’, you can
check the reverb characteristics for each
channel. Press RETURN when you’re done.

memory is to be stored, press MCACC to
select the MCACC memory you want to store.
Based on the reverb measurement above, you
can choose the time period that will be used for
the final frequency adjustment and calibration.
Even though you can make this setting without
reverb measurement, it is best to use the measurement results as a reference for your time
setting. For an optimal system calibration based
on the direct sound coming from the speakers,
we recommend using the 30-50ms setting.
Use k/l to select the setting. Use i/j to
switch between them.
Select the setting from the following time
periods (in milliseconds): 0-20ms, 10-30ms,
20-40ms, 30-50ms, 40-60ms, 50-70ms and
60-80ms. This setting will be applied to all
channels during calibration.
When you’re finished, select START. It will take
about 2 to 4 minutes for the calibration to finish.
After the Acoustic Calibration Equalization is
set, you are given the option to check the settings on-screen.

This function mixes the sound of the surround
speakers with the surround back speakers so
that the surround sound is heard from diagonally to the rear as it should be.
Depending on the positions of the speakers and
the sound source, in some cases it may not be
possible to achieve good results. In this case,
set the setting to ON SIDE or IN REAR.
! ON SIDE – Select when the surround
speakers is positioned right beside you.
! IN REAR – Select when the surround speaker
is positioned obliquely behind you.
4 When ‘Setting Change?’ is displayed,

! If you’re using a THX speaker setup, set all
speakers to SMALL.
1 Select ‘Speaker Setting’ from the
Manual SP Setup menu.
2 Choose the set of speakers that you
want to set, then select a speaker size.
Use k/l to select the size (and number) of
each of the following speakers:
! Front – Select LARGE if your front speakers
reproduce bass frequencies effectively, or
if you didn’t connect a subwoofer. Select
SMALL to send the bass frequencies to the
subwoofer.
! Center – Select LARGE if your center speaker
reproduces bass frequencies effectively, or
select SMALL to send bass frequencies to
the other speakers or subwoofer. If you didn’t
connect a center speaker, choose NO (the
center channel is sent to the front speakers).
! FH – Select LARGE if your front height
speakers reproduce bass frequencies
effectively, or select SMALL to send bass
frequencies to the other speakers or
subwoofer. If you didn’t connect front height
speakers, choose NO (the front height
channel is sent to the front speakers).
— You can adjust this setting only
when Speaker System setting is
Normal(SB/FH).
— If the surround speakers are set to NO,
this setting will automatically be set to
NO.
! FW – Select LARGE if your front wide
speakers reproduce bass frequencies
effectively, or select SMALL to send bass
frequencies to the other speakers or
subwoofer. If you didn’t connect front wide
speakers, choose NO (the front wide channel
is sent to the front speakers).

En
— You can adjust this setting only
when Speaker System setting is
Normal(SB/FW).
— If the surround speakers are set to NO,
this setting will automatically be set to
NO.
! Surr – Select LARGE if your surround
speakers reproduce bass frequencies
effectively. Select SMALL to send bass
frequencies to the other speakers or
subwoofer. If you didn’t connect surround
speakers choose NO (the sound of the
surround channels is sent to the front
speakers or a subwoofer).
! SB – Select the number of surround back
speakers you have (one, two or none). Select
LARGEx2 or LARGEx1 if your surround
back speakers reproduce bass frequencies
effectively. Select SMALLx2 or SMALLx1 to
send bass frequencies to the other speakers
or subwoofer. If you didn’t connect surround
back speakers choose NO.
— If you selected ZONE 2 or Front Bi-Amp
(in Speaker system setting on page 69
) you can’t adjust the surround back
settings.
— If the surround speakers are set to
NO, the surround back speakers will
automatically be set to NO.
! SW – LFE signals and bass frequencies of
channels set to SMALL are output from the
subwoofer when YES is selected. Choose the
PLUS setting if you want the subwoofer to
output bass sound continuously or you want
deeper bass (the bass frequencies that would
normally come out the front and center
speakers are also routed to the subwoofer). If
you did not connect a subwoofer choose NO
(the bass frequencies are output from other
speakers).
— If you have a subwoofer and like lots of
bass, it may seem logical to select LARGE
for your front speakers and PLUS for the
subwoofer. This may not, however, yield
the best bass results. Depending on the
speaker placement of your room you
may actually experience a decrease in
the amount of bass due low frequency
cancellations. In this case, try changing
the position or direction of speakers. If
you can’t get good results, listen to the
bass response with it set to PLUS and
YES or the front speakers set to LARGE
and SMALL alternatively and let your ears
judge which sounds best. If you’re having
problems, the easiest option is to route
all the bass sounds to the subwoofer by
selecting SMALL for the front speakers.
If you select NO for the subwoofer the front
speakers will automatically be fixed to LARGE.
Also, the center, surround, surround back, front
height and front wide speakers can’t be set to
LARGE if the front speakers are set to SMALL.
In this case, all bass frequencies are sent to the
subwoofer.
3 Select ‘X. OVER’ and set the crossover
frequency.
Frequencies below this point will be sent to the
subwoofer (or LARGE speakers).
! This setting decides the cutoff between bass
sounds playing back from the speakers
selected as LARGE, or the subwoofer,
and bass sounds playing back from those
selected as SMALL. It also decides where
the cutoff will be for bass sounds in the LFE
channel.
!With Full Auto MCACC setup
or Auto MCACC setup (ALL or
Speaker Setting), the setting here will not
apply and the crossover frequency will be
automatically set. Crossover frequency is a
frequency aimed at achieving the optimal
sound field taking into account the bass
capacity of all connected speakers and
human aural characteristics.
! If you’re using THX speakers, confirm that
the crossover frequency is set to 80Hz.

bright when played back in large rooms. The
X-Curve setting acts as a kind of re-equalization
for home theater listening, and restores proper
tonal balance of movie soundtracks.
Since the principal is the same, X-Curve isn’t
applied when you’re using any of the Home
THX, Pure direct or Optimum surround modes.

want to change, repeat steps 2 and 3.
Note
! When the wireless LAN converter (AS-WL300)
is connected, the port number cannot be set
to port 3.
! We recommend setting the port number to 23
or within the range of 49152 to 65535.
! When the port number is changed, network
communications between the receiver and
AVNavigator are no longer possible. In this
case, click Settings on the AVNavigator’s
function menu, select the IP Address tab
and input one of the port numbers set on the
receiver side to enable communications with
AVNavigator.
Wireless LAN Converter
This setting is required for connecting a wireless LAN converter to the receiver and using
wireless network functions.
For the wireless LAN converter, use the separately sold AS-WL300.
Access Point Setting
Make the connection settings for the wireless
LAN converter connected to the receiver and
the access point. Connect the wireless LAN
converter to the receiver and set DHCP on the
“IP Address, Proxy” settings menu beforehand
(page 71). There are four way to make the settings for connecting to the access point, as
shown below.
! WPS (PBC) – Connection settings are made
automatically simply by pressing the WPS
The System Setup and Other Setup menus
buttons on the access point and wireless LAN
converter, following the instructions displayed
on the receiver’s screen. This is the simplest
way of making the settings, and is possible
when the access point and wireless LAN
converter are equipped with WPS buttons.
Network connection settings require
approximately 2 minutes from the time the
WPS buttons are pressed. Wait until the
settings are completed.
! WPS (PIN) – Display a list of the SSIDs of
connectable access points and select the
access point to which you want to connect
from this list. Connection settings are made by
inputting the 8-digit PIN code displayed on the
receiver’s screen to the access point to which
you want to connect.
! Search for Access Point – Display a list of
the SSIDs of connectable access points and
select the access point to which you want to
connect from this list. Connection settings
with the access point are made by setting the
access point’s security protocol, security key
and WEP default key (only when the access
point’s security protocol is WEP).
! Manual Setting – Connection settings are
made by manually inputting the SSID, security
protocol, security key and WEP default key
of the access point to which you want to
connect.
Note
! If there is a “; ” (semicolon) in the access
point’s SSID or security key, wireless LAN
connection will not be possible even after
the wireless LAN converter settings are
completed. Change the setting of the access
point’s SSID or security key to a character
string that does not include a “; ” (semicolon).
! If it is not possible to connect to the access
point with the WPS (PBC) or WPS (PIN)
connection settings, we recommend
making the connection settings at
Search for Access Point or Manual Setting.
WLAN IP Address
If the IP address of a device connected in the
LAN other than the wireless LAN converter
is set to “192.168.XXX.249”, the IP address of
the wireless LAN converter will be redundant,
making connection to the access point impossible. In this case, use this setting to set an IP
address specific to the wireless LAN converter.
1 Select ‘Wireless LAN Converter’ from
the Network Setup menu.
2 Make the wireless LAN converter
settings as necessary.
When making the connection settings of the
wireless LAN converter and access point, select
“Access Point Setting” and make the connection settings for the wireless LAN converter and
access point following the instructions on the
screen.
If you want to set the wireless LAN converter’s
IP address, select “WLAN IP Address” and
input the IP address.
Checking the Network
Information
The setting status of the following networkrelated items can be checked.
! IP Address – Check the IP address of this
receiver.
! MAC Address – Check the MAC address of

Symptom
Remedy
Noisy, intermittent, or distorted picture.
Sometimes a video deck may output a noisy video signal (during scanning, for
example), or the video quality may just be poor (with some video game units,
for example). The picture quality may also depend on the settings, etc. of your
display device. Switch off the video converter and reconnect the source and
display device using the same type of connection (component or composite),
then start playback again.
After using the Auto MCACC
Setup, the speaker size setting
is incorrect.
There may have been some low frequency noise in the room from an airconditioner, motor, etc. Switch off all other appliances in the room and use
Auto MCACC Setup again.
Video signals are not output
from the component terminal.
The picture's movement is
unnatural.
When a monitor only compatible with resolutions of 480i is connected to the
component terminal and another monitor is connected to the HDMI terminal,
the video signals may not be output to the monitor connected to the component terminal. If this happens, do the following:
— Turn off the power of the monitor connected to the HDMI terminal.
— Change the VIDEO PARAMETER menu RES setting (see Setting the Video
options on page 52 ).
— Video signals from the HDMI terminal cannot be output to the component
terminals. Input the video signals from the player or other source to the composite or component terminals. When using the component terminal, assign it
at Input Setup (see The Input Setup menu on page 28 ).
When Resolution under VIDEO PARAMETER is set to 1080/24p, the picture
may not be displayed properly for some source materials. In this case, set the
resolution to something other than 1080/24p (page 52).

Symptom
Remedy
The Auto MCACC Setup continually shows an error.
The ambient noise level may be too high. Keep the noise level in the room
as low as possible (see also Problems when using the Auto MCACC Setup on
page 27 ). If the noise level cannot be kept low enough, you will have to set up
the surround sound manually (page 69).
When using only one surround back speaker, connect it to the SURROUND
BACK L (Single) terminals.
To use a 5.1-channel speaker set, use the surround speakers for the surround
channel, not the surround back channel.
Depending on a number of factors (bass reproduction capabilities of the
speakers, room size, speaker placement, etc.) this may occur in some cases.
Change the speaker setting manually in Speaker Setting on page 69 , and use

Wireless LAN converter’s power is not on. (Wireless LAN converter’s “Power”, “WPS” and
“Wireless” indicators are not all lit.)
! Check that the USB cable connecting the wireless LAN converter to the receiver’s DC
OUTPUT for WIRELESS LAN terminal is properly connected.
WLAN POW ERR is displayed on the receiver’s display window.
! There is a problem with the wireless LAN converter’s power supply. Turn the receiver’s
power off, then disconnect the USB cable, reconnect the USB cable and turn the receiver’s
power back on.
!If WLAN POW ERR is still displayed after repeating the above procedure several times, there
is a problem with the receiver or the USB cable. Unplug the receiver from the wall and call a
Pioneer authorized independent service company.
The LAN cable is not firmly connected.
! Firmly connect the LAN cable (page 23).
Wireless LAN converter and base unit (wireless LAN router, etc.) are too far apart or there is an
obstacle between them.
! Improve the wireless LAN environment by moving the wireless LAN converter and base unit
closer together, etc.
There is a microwave oven or other device generating electromagnetic waves near the wireless
LAN environment.
! Use the system in a place away from microwave ovens or others device generating electromagnetic waves.
! Avoid using devices generating electromagnetic waves as much as possible when using the
system with the wireless LAN.
Multiple wireless LAN converters are connected to the wireless LAN router.
! When connecting multiple wireless LAN converters, their IP addresses must be changed.
For example, if the wireless LAN router’s IP address is “192.168.1.1”, set the first wireless
LAN converter’s IP address to “192.168.1.249”, the second wireless LAN converter’s IP
address to “192.168.1.248”, using values between 2 and 249 (such as “249” and “248”) that
are not assigned to other wireless LAN converters or to other devices.
Wireless LAN connections cannot be established between the wireless LAN converter and base
unit (wireless LAN router, etc.).
! The wireless LAN converter must be set in order to establish wireless LAN connections. See
Wireless LAN Converter on page 72 .
The wireless LAN converter is properly connected to the receiver and the wireless LAN converter’s indicators are lit, but the wireless LAN converter cannot be set from the receiver (the
settings screen cannot be displayed).
! If DHCP in the receiver’s IP settings is set to OFF and the IP address has been set manually,
the IP address set in the wireless LAN converter may not match.
13
In the receiver’s IP settings, set DHCP to ON. After the setting is completed, turn the receiver’s power off. Next, turn the receiver’s power back on and check whether the wireless LAN
converter’s settings can be displayed with the receiver.
If the settings can be displayed, change the IP address settings of the receiver and wireless
LAN converter as necessary.
The IP address settings of the receiver and wireless LAN converter do not match the settings of
the wireless LAN router, etc.
! Check the IP address settings of the receiver and wireless LAN converter (including the
DHCP setting).
If the receiver’s DHCP setting is “ON”, turn the receiver’s power off, then turn the power
back on.
Check that the IP addresses of the receiver and wireless LAN converter match the settings
of the wireless LAN router, etc.
If the receiver’s DHCP setting is “OFF”, set an IP address matching the network of the base
unit (wireless LAN router, etc.).
For example, if the wireless LAN router’s IP address is “192.168.1.1”, set the receiver’s IP
address to “192.168.1.XXX” (*1), the subnet mask to “255.255.255.0”, the gateway and DNS
to “192.168.1.1”.
Next, set the wireless LAN converter’s IP address to “192.168.1.249” (*2).
(*1) Set the “XXX” in “192.168.1.XXX” to a number between 2 and 248 that is not assigned to
other devices.
(*2) Set the “249” in “192.168.1.249” to a number between 2 and 249 that is not assigned to
other devices.
Try making the wireless LAN converter’s advanced settings.
! The wireless LAN converter can be connected to a computer to make the advanced wireless
LAN settings. For details, see the CD-ROM included for the wireless LAN converter. Check
the settings of the wireless LAN router, etc., then change the settings of the wireless LAN
converter.
Note, however, that making the advanced wireless LAN settings will not necessarily improve
the wireless LAN environment. Be careful when changing the settings.
The access point is set to conceal the SSID.
! In this case, the SSID may not be displayed on the access point list screen. If not, set the
SSID, etc., by making the wireless LAN converter settings on the receiver manually.
The access point’s security settings use WEP 152-bit length code key or shared key
authentication.
! The receiver does not support WEP 152-bit length code key or shared key authentication.
Network connections cannot be established even when the above measures are taken.
! Reset the wireless LAN converter. After this, redo the wireless LAN converter’s settings.
About resetting
1. Check that the wireless LAN converter’s power is on.
2. Press the wireless LAN converter’s reset button for at least 3 seconds.
3. Release the reset button.
When the wireless LAN converter is restarted, the resetting procedure is completed.

About status messages
Speaker Setting Guide
Refer to the following information when you come up with a status message while operating the
Home Media Gallery.
In order to achieve an even better surround
effect, it is important to accurately position
the speakers and make their volume and tone
characteristics uniform so as to finely focus the
multi-channel sound.
The three major elements in positioning the
speakers are distance, angle and orientation (the direction in which the speakers are
pointing).
Distance: The distance of all the speakers
should be equal.
Angle: The speakers should be horizontally
symmetrical.
Orientation: The orientation should be horizontally symmetrical.
In most homes, however, it is not possible to
achieve this environment. For the distance, on
this receiver it is possible to automatically correct the speaker distance electrically to a precision of 0.5 inch using the Full Auto MCACC
Setup function (page 26).
VSX-1326 only: For the volume and sound quality
as well, accurate sound field correction using
the equalizer and speaker phase characteristic
correction using the Full Band Phase Control
function (page 39) together make it possible to
achieve the ideal listening environment.

Step 1: Speaker layout and
distance adjustment
Use speaker stands or the like to make sure the
speakers are steady, and leave at least 10 cm
(4 inches) from the surrounding walls. Position
the speakers attentively so that the speakers on
the left and right are at equal angles from the
listening position (center of the adjustments).
(We recommend using cords, etc., when adjusting the layout.) Ideally all the speakers should
be equidistant from the listening position.
86
En
Note
! If the speakers cannot be set at equal
distances (on a circle), use the Auto MCACC
Setup speaker distance correction and Fine
Speaker Distance functions to make them
equalize the distance artificially.
Step 2: Adjusting the speaker
height
Adjust the heights (angles) of the different
speakers.
Adjust so that the front speaker units reproducing mid- and high frequencies is roughly at the
height of the ears.
If the center speaker cannot be set at the same
height as the front speakers, adjust its angle of
elevation to point it to the listening position.
Set surround speaker 1 so that it is not under
the height of the ears.
Step 3: Adjusting the speaker
orientation
If the left and right speakers are not pointing
in the same direction, the tone will not be the
same on the right and left, and as a result the
sound field will not be reproduced properly.
However, if all the speakers are pointed towards
the listening position, the sound field will seem
cramped. Testing by the Pioneer Multi-channel
Research Group has shown that a good sense
of sound positioning can be achieved by pointing all the speakers towards an area 30 cm to 80
cm (12 inches to 31 inches) behind the listening
position (between the surround speakers and
the listening position).
However, the sense of sound positioning can
differ according to the conditions in the room
and the speakers being used. In smaller environments in particular (when the front speakers
are close to the listening position), with this
method the speakers will be pointed too inward.
Additional information
We suggest you use this example of installation
as reference when trying out different installation methods.
Step 4: Positioning and adjusting
the subwoofer
Placing the subwoofer between the center
and front speakers makes even music sources
sound more natural (if there is only one subwoofer, it doesn’t matter if it is placed on the left
or right side). The low bass sound output from
the subwoofer is not directional and there is no
need to adjust the height. Normally the subwoofer is placed on the floor. Put it in a position
at which it will not cancel out the bass sound
output from the other speakers. Also note that
placing it near a wall may result in sympathetic
vibrations with the building that could excessively amplify the bass sound.
If the subwoofer must be installed near a wall,
place it at an angle so that it is not parallel to
the wall surface. This can help reduce any sympathetic vibrations, but depending on the shape
of the room this could result in standing waves.
However, even if standing waves are generated,
their influence on the sound quality can be
prevented using the Auto MCACC’s standing
wave control function (page 65).
Step 5: Default settings with the
Auto MCACC Setup (auto sound
field correction) function
It is more effective to perform the Full Auto
MCACC Setup (page 26) procedure once
the adjustments described above have been
completed.
Note
! The distance to the subwoofer may be slightly
larger than the distance actually measured
with a tape measure, etc. This is because this
distance is corrected for electric delay, and is
not a problem.

R
45° to 60°
! If the center speaker is not of the shielded
type, install it away from the TV.
! When installing the center speaker on top of
the monitor, place it facing slightly downwards
towards the listening position.
Since mostly dialogs are output from the center
speaker, keeping the center speaker as close
as possible to the screen makes the overall
sound more natural. For TVs using Braun tubes,
however, when installing the center speaker on
the floor, adjust its angle of elevation to point it
towards the listening position.

Important information
regarding the HDMI
connection
There are cases where you may not be able to
route HDMI signals through this receiver (this
depends on the HDMI-equipped component
you are connecting-check with the manufacturer for HDMI compatibility information).
If you aren’t receiving HDMI signals properly
through this receiver (from your component),
please try one of the following configurations
when connecting up.
Configuration A
Position of center speaker and
monitor

Use component video cables to connect the
video output of your HDMI-equipped component to the receiver’s component video input.
The receiver can then convert the analog component video signal to a digital HDMI signal for
transmission to the display. For this configuration, use the most convenient connection
(digital is recommended) for sending audio to
the receiver. See the operating instructions for
more on audio connections.
Note
! If your display only has one HDMI terminal,
you can only receive HDMI video from the
connected component.
! Depending on the component, audio output
may be limited to the number of channels
available from the connected display unit (for
example audio output is reduced to 2 channels
for a monitor with stereo audio limitations).
! If you want to switch the input function, you’ll
have to switch functions on both the receiver
and your display unit.
! Since the sound is muted on the display when
using the HDMI connection, you must adjust
the volume on the display every time you
switch input functions.
Cleaning the unit
! Use a polishing cloth or dry cloth to wipe off
dust and dirt.
! When the surface is dirty, wipe with a soft
cloth dipped in some neutral cleanser diluted
five or six times with water, and wrung out
well, and then wipe again with a dry cloth. Do
not use furniture wax or cleansers.
! Never use thinners, benzene, insecticide
sprays or other chemicals on or near this unit,
since these will corrode the surface.
! The picture quality will change slightly during
conversion.
Configuration B
Connect your HDMI-equipped component
directly to the display using an HDMI cable.
Then use the most convenient connection
(digital is recommended) for sending audio

and phase relationship with respect to the other
surround channel. This expands the listening
position and creates-with only two speakers- the
same spacious surround experience as in a
movie theatre.
Re-Equalization
THX Select2 Plus
The tonal balance of a film soundtrack will be
excessively bright and harsh when played back
over audio equipment in the home because film
soundtracks were designed to be played back in
large movie theaters using very different professional equipment. Re-Equalization restores
the correct tonal balance for watching a movie
soundtrack in a small home environment.
Before any home theatre component can be
THX Select2 Plus certified, it must incorporate
all the features above and also pass a rigorous
series of quality and performance tests. Only
then can a product feature the THX Select2 Plus
logo, which is your guarantee that the Home
Theatre products you purchase will give you
superb performance for many years to come.
THX Select2 Plus requirements cover every
aspect of the product including pre-amplifier
and power amplifier performance and operation, and hundreds of other parameters in both
the digital and analog domain.

THX Cinema processing
THX is an exclusive set of standards and technologies established by THX Ltd. THX grew from
George Lucas’ personal desire to make your
experience of the film soundtrack, in both movie
theatres and in your home theatre, as faithful as possible to what the director intended.
Movie soundtracks are mixed in special
movie theatres called dubbing stages and are
designed to be played back in movie theatres
with similar equipment and conditions. This
same soundtrack is then transferred directly
onto Laserdisc, VHS tape, DVD, etc., and is
not changed for playback in a small home
theatre environment. THX engineers developed
patented technologies to accurately translate
the sound from the movie theatre environment
The human ear changes our perception of a
sound depending on the direction from which
the sound is coming. In a movie theatre, there is
an array of surround speakers so that the surround information is all around you. In a home
theatre, you use only two speakers located to
the side of your head. The Timbre Matching
feature filters the information going to the surround speakers so that they more closely match
the tonal characteristics of the sound coming
from the front speakers. This ensures seamless panning between the front and surround
speakers.
Adaptive Decorrelation
In a movie theatre, a large number of surround
speakers help create an enveloping surround
sound experience, but in a home theatre there
are usually only two speakers. This can make
the surround speakers sound like headphones
that lack spaciousness and envelopment. The
surround sounds will also collapse into the
closest speaker as you move away from the
middle seating position. Adaptive Decorrelation
slightly changes one surround channel’s time
THX Surround EX
THX Surround EX - Dolby Digital Surround EX
is a joint development of Dolby Laboratories
and the 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. Movies that were created using the
Dolby Digital Surround EX technology, when
released into the home consumer market may
exhibit wording to that effect on the packaging.
A list of movies created using this technology
Additional information
can be found on the Dolby web site at http://
www.dolby.com.
Only amplifier and controller products bearing
the THX Surround EX logo, when in the THX
Surround EX mode, faithfully reproduce this
new technology in the home.
This product may also engage the “THX
Surround EX” mode during the playback of
5.1 channel material that is not Dolby Digital
Surround EX encoded. In such case the information delivered to the Surround Back channel
will be program dependent and may or may not
be very pleasing depending on the particular
soundtrack and the tastes of the individual
listener.
