Preparation
Preparing the Speakers
The Front Speakers, Surround Speakers, Center Speaker and Subwoofer have special roles based on the type of sound each produces.
• The Front Speakers produce front channel sound (stereo) and sound effects.
• The Surround Speakers produce surround sound and sound effects.
• The Center Speaker produces sound oriented toward the center of the screen such as dialog or vocals.
• The Subwoofer produces bass sounds and the LFE signal contained in Dolby Digital and DTS.
Placing the Speakers
Front Speakers (L, R)
Place the speakers as shown in the diagram below.
Place the Front Left and Right Speakers an equal distance from
the ideal listening position. The distance of each speaker from
each side of the video monitor should be the same.
Center Speaker
Front Speaker (R)
Front Speaker (L)
Surround Speaker (R)
Center Speaker
Align the front face of the center speaker with the front face of
your video monitor. Place the speaker as close to the monitor as
possible (such as directly over or under the monitor) and
centrally between the front speakers.
Surround Speakers (L, R)
1.8 m
(6 feet)
Place these speakers behind your listening position, facing
slightly inwards, approximately 1.8 m (6 feet) above the floor.
Subwoofer

Speaker (L)
• You can secure the Center Speaker, Surround Speakers or
Subwoofer in place using fasteners or non-skid pads. You can
hang the Front and Surround Speakers from the wall or attach
them to optional speaker stands.
See page 53, “Placing the Speakers (NX-P120)”.

English
Advice
The position of the Subwoofer is not so critical, because low bass
sounds are not highly directional. But it is better to place the
Subwoofer near the Front Speakers. Turn it slightly toward the
center of the room to reduce wall reflections.
Note
• If the television (monitor) image is distorted, place the
speakers away from the television.

Use the antenna’s coaxial cable and a commercially
available F-type connector to connect the antenna to the FM
ANT jack. For details, ask the shop where you bought the
outdoor antenna.
Earth (GND jack)
The GND jack does not provide secure grounding. However when there
is a lot of noise, connecting it may improve reception. To ground
CinemaStation, connect one end of a vinyl coated wire to the GND jack
and the other end to a commercially available grounding rod or copper
sheet, and bury the rod or sheet in damp earth.
Connecting the AM Loop Antenna
Attach the Antenna to its stand.
Open the AM ANT and GND jack levers to
the right. Insert the AM Loop Antenna’s
cord cores into the AM ANT and GND
jacks.
Close the lever to fasten the cord.
Pull the cord lightly to make sure it is properly
fastened.
Adjust the Antenna left and right and find
the best position for reception.

Advice
• The AM Loop Antenna can be detached from its stand and attached to a wall.
• To improve reception, we recommend that you install an outdoor antenna. For details, contact your local Yamaha sound products

Note
• Install the supplied indoor FM Antenna and AM Loop Antenna away from this system.
• Even if you connect an outdoor AM antenna, be sure to still use the AM Loop Antenna.

About PTY SEEK
When you select the program type, CinemaStation automatically
searches through all preset stations currently broadcasting for
that type.
Listening to the Radio
• When an RDS station is broadcasting, do not press FREQ/RDS until
one or more mode indicators light up in the CinemaStation Display. If
you press FREQ/RDS before the mode indicators light up,
CinemaStation may not be able to change modes.
• RDS information not provided by a station cannot be selected.
• If the RDS station’s signal transmission is too weak, CinemaStation
may not be able to use the service fully. In particular, radio text uses a
lot of bandwidth, so it may not be available even when other modes
are selectable.
• RDS information may not transmit under poor conditions. In this
case, press AUTO/MAN’L to set CinemaStation to Manual Tuning
mode. This changes reception to monaural and may help RDS
information reappear when you switch to RDS display mode.
• If outside interference disrupts an RDS station broadcast, RDS
information may suddenly disappear and “...WAIT ” appears in the
CinemaStation Display.

Placing the Speakers (NX-P120)
To get the most out of the sound field effects you need to place the speakers
in the best positions. To guard against poor acoustics like sound blur make
sure the speakers are stable. Also read page 7, Preparing the Speakers.
Placing the Center Speaker
Make sure the top of the television is level. If the top of the
television is not level, place the Center Speaker inside the
TV rack or directly on the floor. In any case, make sure it is
placed on a level surface.
When placing on top of the television, use the supplied
fastener (two pieces) as shown in the picture on the left,
between the bottom of the Center Speaker and top of the
television to fasten.
Fastener
Placing the Subwoofer
Creating the Best Listening Space
Peel off
the seal
Note
• Do not place on a television with top narrower than the bottom of the
speaker. You may get injured if the speaker falls over.
• Do not place if the top of the television is slanting. You may get
injured if the speaker falls over.
• After peeling off the fastener seal, do not touch the bonding surface. If
you do, the bonding surface weakens, which later may cause the
speaker to fall over.
• Before attaching the fastener to the television, wipe the TV top clean.
If the surface is dirty or wet tape will lose bonding strength, which
later may cause the speaker to fall over.
Place the Subwoofer on a level hard floor.
When placing, use non-skid pads on the bottom of the
Subwoofer in the four corners as shown in the picture. This
will prevent the Subwoofer from sliding when it vibrates.
Also, increasing stability prevents degradation of sound.

Placing the Front and Surround Speakers
You can place the Front Speakers and Surround Speakers
on the floor or a rack, or attach them to a wall. You can also
mount them on commercially available speaker stands.
When placing on the floor or a rack
As shown in the picture, attach the non-skid pads on the bottoms
of the Front and Surround Speakers in the four corners. This
stabilizes the speakers to prevent sliding.
* Place on a stable, flat surface.

Attach to the wall using the two holes on the back of the Front and
Surround Speakers.
Attach 2 screws (3.5 to 4 mm (1/8⬙ to 5/32⬙) dia.,
commercially available) to each place you want
to hang a Front or Surround Speaker.
Hang the speakers on the screws using the
holes in the back of each speaker.
Note
• Make sure that the tapping screw enters the narrow part of the hole
and the speaker is fixed securely in place.
Note
• One speaker weighs about 1.1 kg (2.43 lb). Make sure you fasten screws only into a solid wall or pillar. Do not attach to a wall
that is made of plaster, decorative veneer sheeting or other material that peels easily. If the screws come off and a speaker falls,
somebody may get injured.
• Do not attach the speakers using nails or two-sided tape. Vibration during use may cause the nails to loosen, tape to peel off and
speakers to fall, resulting in injury.
• CinemaStation may fall over if your feet or hands get caught in the speaker cable. Make sure the cables are fixed in place.
• After attaching everything, check the overall safety of your installation.
YAMAHA will bear no responsibility for accidents caused by improperly placed equipment or faulty installation methods.

Using Commercially Available Speakers or Cables
You can use commercially available speakers instead of
the supplied Center Speaker, Front Speakers, Surround
Speakers, or Subwoofer. You can also use commercially
available speaker cables instead of the supplied cables.
Note
• Use a speaker with 6-ohm impedance or more. If a speaker
with less than 6-ohm impedance is used, the protective circuit
may trip or the speaker may malfunction.
• Use magnetically shielded speakers. If these speakers still
create interference with the monitor, place the speakers away
from the monitor.
• Make sure the speaker cable you use is the same thickness as
the supplied cable.
Advice
• Use speakers of the same manufacturer and quality, if possible. If the
quality of each speaker differs, the voice of a moving person may
become unnatural.

Adjusting the Speaker Volume Level
The default settings of the Speakers are suitable for most conditions.
However, depending on room conditions or listening position, you may
need to adjust the Speaker volume level, especially when changing
speaker or furniture position.
This adjustment is important because it brings out the maximum effect of
the DSP Program, and faithfully reproduces the acoustic personalities of
Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Digital and DTS.
Even after performing the test tone, you may still like to adjust the
speaker volume level for some sources. In this case see page 60,
“Adjusting the Speaker Volume Level During Playback”.
Note
• You cannot adjust the volume level while connected to headphones. To adjust, disconnect
your headphones.

Advice
• If you raise the volume level of the Center and Surround L/R Speakers to + 10 dB and this is still less than the Front Speakers,
set the “* F. Level” in the SET MENU to -10 dB and lower the volume level of the Front Speakers by about 1/3. If you change

• If “* CENTER” in the SET MENU is set to “NON”, the Center Speaker signal is distributed to the Front L/R Speakers at the
same volume level and output. In this case, you cannot adjust the audio output level of the Center Speaker.
• If “* SUR”. in the SET MENU is set to “NON”, you cannot adjust the volume level of the Surround L/R Speakers. The test tone
skips the Surround L/R Speakers and continues its cycle.
• If “* BASS” in the SET MENU is set to “FRONT”, the test tone skips the Subwoofer and continues its cycle.
• The test tone for Subwoofer is different from the others, but this is not a defect.

• The volume level adjustment range is +10 dB to -10 dB.
• You cannot adjust the Left and Right Surround Speakers individually. The same adjustment level will be applied to both.
If the level adjusted during the sound test was different for Left and Right and one speaker was then tuned to a maximum of +10
dB or a minimum of -10 dB, the value cannot be adjusted any further up or down.
• We recommend that you first adjust the speaker balance with a test tone. See page 58, “Adjusting the Speaker Balance
with a Test Tone”.
• If you change the speaker volume level with the SW, CENTER or SURR buttons, the levels you adjust with the test tone also
change.
Note
• Depending on your settings in SET MENU, volume level adjustment may not be available for a speaker.
– If “* CENTER” is set to “NON” you cannot adjust the Center Speaker.

Advice
• An LFE channel can be output from the Front L/R Speakers or Subwoofer depending on how you set “* BASS” in the SET
MENU.
• If “* BASS” in the SET MENU is set to “BOTH” or “* FRONT” is set to “SML”, a low tone is output from the Subwoofer.
Note
• If sound field effects are off, no sound will output from the Center Speaker or Surround L/R Speakers.
• The volume may become very low if you turn off sound field effects and set “* D. Range” to “MIN” in the SET MENU. In this
case, turn on sound field effects.
• If sound field effects are off and you play Dolby Digital or DTS audio, the volume balance of the Front L/R Speakers may be
disturbed. This is because the dynamic range becomes compressed and the channel sound set in “* Speaker Set” in the SET
MENU mixes and outputs with the front L/R channel sound.

Learning about input modes, jacks and Input Selection
buttons
CinemaStation can receive signals from the VIDEO (analog),
VCR (analog) and OPTICAL (digital) jacks of equipment that
is connected to it. You can assign a VIDEO or VCR input name
to the OPTICAL IN jack. This will allow you to use the VIDEO
button or VCR button to input a device connected to the
OPTICAL IN jack (VIDEO is assigned in the default setting.)
Normally, an analog signal is input to the VIDEO or VCR IN
jack, and a digital signal is input to the OPTICAL IN jack.
However, by setting the input mode to AUTO the input will be
automatically detected and you can then playback audio from
the device you want by simply pressing an Input Selection
button.
Advice
• It is possible to switch Input mode even if you press INPUT on CinemaStation for more than one second.
• When Input mode is set to AUTO and a Dolby Digital or DTS signal is input, the most suitable decoder is automatically
selected.
• The following happens when set to Input mode and DTS is played:
— CinemaStation detects the DTS signal and automatically switch to DTS mode (t indicator lights up). Once DTS audio
finishes playback, the t indicator may blink, and while it blinks only DTS audio can be played back. Immediately after
DTS audio finishes playback, if you want to play normal PCM audio, reset the Input mode to AUTO.
— If the DTS signal is interrupted when you perform Search or Skip, the t indicator may blink. If this condition continues
for over 30 seconds, the Input mode automatically changes from DTS to normal digital (PCM) and the t goes out.
• Using “* Input Mode” in the SET MENU you can set whether to use the Input mode specified previously when CinemaStation
was turned on or return to AUTO.

English
Note
• It is not possible to select ANLG with the DVD/CD Input Selection button.
• You cannot switch input modes when the input jack you select with the Input Selection button can only input an analog input
signal.
• To play back DTS, set the Input mode to AUTO or DTS. Do not set it to ANLG. If you do, audio may not output or you may
hear noise.

Operating Other Equipment with the CinemaStation Remote Control
When the Remote Control’s TV or VCR
button does not work even after setting the
device manufacturer code
To return to the factory default settings
While pressing SHIFT down as in step 2 Setting the
Manufacturer Code, enter 299 for TV or 399 for VCR.
(Step 3 is not necessary.)
Try again from step 1 and keep the following points in
mind.
• Make sure you select the Remote Control’s TV or VCR
button correctly when setting the manufacturer code.
• If there are multiple manufacturer codes enter them in
order.
• After reinserting batteries, try the steps again (within 2
minutes of reinserting).
(When reinserting batteries be careful not to press the
Remote Control buttons. If a manufacturer code has been
set for the TV or VCR button, it may get deleted.)
Maintaining manufacturer code settings
Replace batteries before they become unusable. When the
batteries wear out and you remove them, the custom
manufacturer code setting will stay in memory for about 2
minutes. Be careful because if more than 2 minutes elapse
the codes may be deleted. Also, at this time, be careful not
to accidentally press a Remote Control button. This can
delete the codes.

Adjust the playback level of the LFE signal
(* LEF Level)
Set the dynamic range during Dolby Digital
playback (* D. Range)
You can adjust the LFE channel output level while
playing a Dolby Digital or DTS signal. Adjust the LFE
level to match the performance of the Subwoofer and
headphones.
You can select the dynamic range (spread between the
max. and min. volume) of Dolby Digital playback from
3 levels.
Submenu: SP LFE, HP LFE
Variable range (dB): -20 to 0 dB.
Default setting: 0 dB
Set the Delay Time of the Center Speaker (*
SP Delay)
You can set the Delay Time of the Center Speaker. This
is effective when the Center Speaker outputs sound
during Dolby Digital or DTS playback.
Normally the Center Speaker and Front L/R Speakers
are placed in line with each other. However, they should
be placed at an equal distance from the listener so that
the sound each one outputs enters the listener’s ear at the
same time. With Delay Time, the Center Speaker can be
moved to an ideal position further away to match the
distance of each speaker to the listener. Center Delay is
effective in adding depth to the sound field and presence
to speech.
Submenu: SP D.R, HP D.R
Selection items: MAX (Maximum), STD (Standard),
MIN (Minimum)
Default setting: MAX
MAX: Plays back the dynamic range of the source at the
maximum limit.
STD: Dynamic range recommended by software
manufacturers for home use.
MIN: Easy to hear even at a low volume, dynamic range
suitable for evening listening.
Note
• Depending on the Dolby Digital playback source, the MIN
dynamic range may not work and result in an extremely low
volume. In this case, set the dynamic range to MAX or STD.

compatible device.
• Only use discs from a reputable manufacturer. Some discs
cannot be played back, depending on recording conditions and
disc characteristics.
• Do not use discs with non-standard shapes or
sizes.
• Some DVD video or video CD discs may operate and
function differently than noted in this manual. That is by
manufacturer design and not a defect in this unit. For more
details read the information on the disc jacket.
• This unit can play the disc types associated with the logos
shown on page 102. (Do not attempt to load any other type of
disc into the unit, or the unit may be damaged.)
• Some discs cannot be played depending on the recording
conditions such as PC environment and application software.
Failure can also result from disc characteristics and condition,
like material quality, scratches or curvature.
Handling a disc
• Do not touch the surface of
the disc. Hold a disc by its
edge and center hole.
• Do not leave a disc in the
tray when you are not
playing it.
• Do not write on the disc with
a pencil or other marker.
• Do not stick tape, seals or other attachments to a disc, and do
not bring into contact with glue.
• Do not use a protective cover to prevent scratches.
• Do not use a disc whose surface can be printed with a
commercially available label printer.
• Do not put a disc in a place with
direct sunlight, high temperature,
high humidity or a lot of dust.
Caution
• If a disc becomes dirty, wipe it with a
clean, dry cloth from the center out to
the edge. Do not use record cleaner or
paint thinner.
• To avoid malfunction, do not use a commercially available
lens cleaner.

Glossary
Bit Stream
A signal that is compressed and changed into digital
format. Then depending on the decoder it can be
processed as 5.1 multi-channel audio.
By using 2-channel stereo for the surround speakers,
more accurate moving sound effects and surround sound
environment can be reproduced, like the rustling of trees
or sound of waves.
Channel (ch)
Dolby Pro Logic
A channel is an audio type that has been divided based
on range and other characteristics.
Ex. 5.1 channel
• Front Speakers, Left (1ch), Right (1ch)
• Center Speaker (1 ch)
• Surround Speakers, Left (1ch), Right (1ch)
• Subwoofer (1 ch x 0.1* = 0.1 ch)
A surround system that takes a 4-channel signal and
records it as a 2-channel signal, then by way of some
arithmetic processing converts back to an independent 4channel signal for playback.
* In contrast to a full 1-channel band, a component designed
to enhance low frequency sound for added effect.
Cinema DSP (Digital Sound Field
Processor)
Dolby Surround and DTS were originally designed for
the movie theater, so playing the same program at home
would produce disparate listening experiences
depending on variables like the room size, walling and
number of speakers.
Yamaha Cinema DSP applies original sound field
technology based on a wealth of real-world data
measurements to reproduce Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby
Digital and DTS sound, combining them with acoustic
scale, depth and tone so that you can experience the
presence of a movie theater at home.
Dolby Pro Logic II
Takes any 2-channel source and reproduces dynamic
5.1-channel surround with excellent separation using
special signal processing. You can experience Dolby Pro
Logic II in MOVIE mode and MUSIC mode for stereo.
You can even enjoy old movies that were only recorded
in 2-channel audio (excluding monaural) in powerful
5.1-channel surround.
DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
The 5.1-channel surround system adopted by most
movie theaters. With an abundance of audio data, it is
able to provide authentic sounding effects.
Dynamic Range
The difference between the smallest sound that can be
heard above the equipment noise and the biggest sound
that can be heard without distortion is the dynamic
range.
Component Video Signal
Decoder
A device that converts encoded data on DVD and other
media back to its original audio or video signal.
Dolby Digital
Downloaded From TheatreSystem-Manual.com Manuals
In general, DVD media can be classified into the 2 types
below.
• Film Data
Video recorded at 24 frames/second. (The film used
for shooting movies is recorded at 24 frames/second.)
Recently 30 frames/second progressive video has
made its debut.
• Video Data
Video recorded at 30 frames/second.
CinemaStation will automatically recognize whether the
source recorded on DVD is film or video, then select the
best method to convert it into progressive output.
Interlace and Progressive Outputs
Up to now the standard video signal has been NTSC
with 525i (i: interlaced) scan lines. In contrast, 525p (p:
progressive) is a high-density signal with double the
number of scan lines.
English
Dolby Digital is a digital surround sound system that
gives you completely independent multi-channel audio.
With 3 front channels (left, center, and right), and 2
surround stereo channels, Dolby Digital provides 5 fullrange audio channels. With an additional channel
especially for bass effects, called LFE (low frequency
effect), the system has a total of 5.1 channels.
Film and Video Data
Appendix
A component video signal is separated into one
luminance Y-signal and two chrominance PB/CB and PR/
CR signals. Since each signal is sent independently, color
can be reproduced more faithfully. The component
signal is also called a color-difference signal by the way
it subtracts the luminance signal from the color signals.
105
Appendix
LFE (Low Frequency Effect) 0.1
Channel
Sampling Frequency and Quantized
Bit Rate
This channel is for the reproduction of low bass signals.
The frequency range for this channel is 20 Hz to 120 Hz.
It is added to the full-range 5 channels in Dolby Digital
and DTS to enhance low frequency sound for added
effect. This channel is counted as 0.1 because it only
enforces a low frequency range.
When converting an analog signal to digital, the number
of times the signal is sampled per second is called the
sampling frequency while the degree of fineness when
converting the sound level into a numeric value is called
the quantized bit rate.
The frequency band that can be played back is
determined by the sampling rate while the dynamic
range expressing the difference in sound level is
determined by the quantized bit rate. In principle, the
higher the sampling rate, the wider the frequency range
that can be played back. And the higher the quantized bit
rate the finer the sound that can be reproduced.
Linear PCM (LPCM)
A signal that is changed to digital format without
compression. A CD is recorded with 16-bit sound at
44.1kHz, while DVD recording is anywhere between 16
bits at 48 kHz to 24 bits at 192 kHz, which makes it a
higher quality sound than CD. This signal also has a type
called Packed PCM (P.PCM) that can be compressed
without any loss of data.
Matrix 6.1
CinemaStation incorporates a Matrix 6.1 decoder for
Dolby Digital and DTS multi-channel software that
enables 6.1-channel reproduction by adding the surround
back channel to existing 5.1-channel format. (The
surround back channel is created from surround left and
right channels, and output from a virtual surround back
speaker.) With this additional channel, you can
experience more dynamic and realistic moving sound
especially scenes with "fly-over" and "fly-around"
effects.
NTSC
SILENT CINEMA
SILENT CINEMA is an original Yamaha system that
reproduces in a pair of headphones the acoustic
personality of sound field programs based on multispeakers. Headphone parameters have been set for each
sound field so that natural stereoscopic sound can be
expressed and enjoyed through headphones.
S-Video Signal
With S-video the video signal that was normally
transmitted using a pin cable is separated and
transmitted as a luminance Y-signal and chrominance Csignal through an S video cable. Connecting with an S
VIDEO jack you can enjoy recording and playback with
more beautiful images.
NTSC is a video signal system (525 lines, 30 frames per
second) used in North America, Central America, a
number of South American countries, and some Asian
countries, including Japan.
Title, Chapter (DVD Video)
Pan & Scan and Letter Box
Track (CD/Video CD)
In general, DVD Video is produced for viewing on a
wide television screen with an aspect ratio of 16:9. This
means you can now view most material with the
intended aspect ratio on a wide-screen television.
This ratio will not fit on a standard television that has an
aspect ratio of 4:3. Two picture styles, Pan & Scan and
Letterbox, deal with this problem.
• Pan & Scan cuts off the left and right portions of the
picture to fill the screen.
• Letterbox inserts black bands at the top and bottom of
the picture to reproduce an aspect ratio of 16:9.
A CD or Video CD can be divided into a number of
segments (tracks). Each division is called a title number.
PAL
PAL is a video signal system (625 lines, 25 frames per
second) used in the United Kingdom, much of the rest of
western Europe, several South American countries, some
Middle East and Asian countries, several African
countries, Australia, New Zealand, and other Pacific
island countries.

DVD video lets you divide a disc in a big way by titles
or a small way by chapters. Each division is either called
a title number or a chapter number.
Virtual Cinema DSP (Digital Sound
Field Processor)
Reproduces a surround speaker sound field to let you
enjoy virtual Center and Surround L/R Speakers with
only two Front L/R Speakers.
