RSX-1057 Surround Sound Receiver
Unpacking
Remove the unit carefully from its packing.
Find the remote control and other accessories. Save the box as it will protect the
RSX-1057 if you move or need to return it
for maintenance.
Placement
Place the RSX-1057 on a solid, level surface
away from sunlight, heat, moisture, or vibration. Make sure that the shelf can support the
weight of the unit.
Place the RSX-1057 close to the other components in your system and, if possible, on its
own shelf. This will make initial hookup, and
subsequent system changes easier.
The RSX-1057 can generate heat during normal operation. Do not block ventilation openings. Allow a minimum of 10 cm or 4
inches of unobstructed space around
the unit. If installed in a cabinet, make sure
that there is adequate ventilation.
Don’t stack other components or objects on
top of the RSX-1057. Don’t let any liquid fall
into the unit.
16
CONNECTIONS
Although the RSX-1057’s rear panel looks
daunting, connecting the unit to your system
is straightforward. Each of the source components in the system are connected to the
RSX-1057 inputs with a pair of standard RCA
cables for analog audio, a video connection
(Composite, S-Video, Component Video,
and/or HDMI), and an optional digital audio cable (coax or optical).
NOTE:
Surround formats like Dolby Digital and
DTS are digital formats and the RSX-1057 can
only decode them when a digital input signal is available. For this reason, you should
always connect your DVD player’s digital
outputs to the RSX-1057, using either the optical or coax inputs.
The outputs of RSX-1057 are sent to up to five
speakers or to optional power amplifier(s)
with standard RCA cables from preamp audio
outputs. The video signal from the RSX-1057
is sent to the TV monitor using Composite
video, S-Video, Component Video, and/or
HDMI connections.
In addition, the RSX-1057 has MULTI input
connections for a source component that does
its own surround decoding, remote IR sensor
inputs, and 12V trigger connections for remote
turn-on of other Rotel components.
NOTE : Do not plug any system component
into an AC source until all connections have
been properly made.
Video cables should have a 75 ohm impedance. The S/PDIF digital audio interface standard also specifies a 75 ohm impedance and
all good digital cables adhere to this requirement. Do NOT substitute conventional audio
interconnect cables for digital or video signals. Standard audio interconnects will pass
these signals, but their limited bandwidth reduce performance.
When making signal connections, connect
LEFT channels to LEFT channel jacks and
RIGHT channels to RIGHT channel jacks. All
RCA-type connections on the RSX-1057 follow these standard color codes:
Left channel audio: white RCA jack
Right channel audio: red RCA jack
Composite video: yellow RCA jack
NOTE :
Each source input must be properly
configured using the INPUT SETUP menu of
the OSD menu system. We recommend going to this menu after connecting each source
to configure it as desired. See Input Setup of
the Setup section for information.
Analog Audio Inputs &
Outputs
The following connections are used for connecting analog audio signals to and from
the RSX-1057. See the Making Connections
topic for specific instructions on connecting
each type of component.
NOTE :
Normally, the RSX-1057 converts analog inputs to digital signals. All of the digital
processing is available including bass management, digital crossovers, speaker level and
delay settings, and a number surround mode
options. Alternatively, there is an analog bypass
surround mode that routes 2-ch and Multi Input
analog signals directly to the Volume control
and outputs, bypassing the digital processing
entirely for pure analog stereo.

A pair of RCA inputs, labeled TAPE IN, for
connecting the left/right analog audio signals from an audio tape deck or recording
device.
TAPE Outputs
A pair of RCA inputs, labeled TAPE OUT,
for sending left/right line level analog audio signals for recording on a tape deck or
recording device.
NOTE : These outputs should be connected to
the inputs of the same tape deck connected
to the TAPE IN inputs.
17
VIDEO 1–5 Audio Inputs
Speaker Outputs
Five pair of RCA inputs, labeled VIDEO IN
1–5, provide connections for left/right analog audio signals from five additional source
components. These inputs have corresponding video inputs and are used for VCRs, satellite TV tuners, DVD players, etc. However,
they may also be used for additional audio
only components, simply by omitting the corresponding video connections.
The RSX-1057 has five built-in amplifiers,
two for the front (right and left), one for the
center channel, and two for the rear surround speakers (right and left). There are five
pairs of binding post connections (one pair
for each speaker) which accept bare wire,
spade lugs, or banana plug connectors (in
some markets).
VIDEO 1–3 Audio Outputs
Three pair of RCA jacks, labeled VIDEO
OUT 1–3, provide connections for sending
line level left and right analog audio signals
for recording to a VCR. .
These connections correspond to the VIDEO
IN 1–3 connections. Make sure that you are
consistent. If you hook up a particular VCR
to the VIDEO 1 inputs, hook up the VIDEO
1 outputs to the same VCR.
NOTE : There are no analog audio outputs for
VIDEO 4 & 5. Therefore, in an elaborate system, hook up all of the VCRs and recording
devices to VIDEO 1–3 and use VIDEO 4 &
5 for playback only components.
NOTE :
Video 1–3 can be used for audio-only
tape decks, simply omitting the corresponding video connections.
MULTI Inputs
A set of RCA inputs accept up to 7.1 channels of analog signals from a DVD-A or SACD
player. There are inputs for FRONT L & R,
CENTER, SUB, REAR L & R, and CENTER
BACK (CB) 1 & 2.
These inputs bypass all digital processing in
the RSX-1057 and are routed directly to the
Volume control and outputs.
There are two subwoofer options for the MULTI
input. Normally, the .1 channel input is passed
through directly to the subwoofer output. An
optional bass redirect feature duplicates the
7 main channels, sums them, and sends this
mono signal through a 100 Hz analog low
filter to the subwoofer output. This provides
an unaltered analog bypass for the seven
main channels along with a subwoofer signal derived from those channels.
NOTE : The RSX-1057 has a speaker redirect
feature which allows you to use the front channel amplifiers to drive center back speakers
or remote Zone 2 speakers when a separate
power amplifier is used for the front speakers. This feature is configured in the Default
Setup menu.
Preamp Outputs
A group of ten RCA analog audio outputs
sends the RSX-1057’s line level output signals
to external amplifiers and powered subwoofers. These outputs are variable level, adjusted by the RSX-1057 volume control. The
ten connectors provide output for: FRONT L
& R, CENTER 1 & 2, SURROUND (REAR) L
& R, CENTER BACK CB1 & CB2, and SUBWOOFER 1 & 2.
NOTE : Depending on your system configuration, you may use some or all of these connections. For example, if you only have one
center channel, connect it to the CENTER 1
output. If you only have one center back channel, connect it to the CB1 output.
ZONE 2 Audio Outputs
A pair of RCA inputs, labeled ZONE OUT,
sending analog audio signals to an external
amplifier for a remote zone. These outputs
can be configured as either fixed or variable
level using the ZONE 2 SETUP menu.
NOTE: Only analog input signals are available
at the Zone 2 outputs. Source components
connected to only the digital inputs are not
available in Zone 2.
To configure your system for Zone 2 operation, connect the left and right Zone 2 outputs on the RSX-1057 to the left and right
channel inputs of the amplifier powering
the remote speakers, using standard RCA
audio cables.
English
Video Inputs & Outputs
These connections are used for connecting
video signals to and from the RSX-1057. See
the Making Connections section for specific
instructions for each type of component.
The RSX-1057 provides Composite, S-Video,
Component Video, and HDMI connections.
Composite video connections simplify system
configuration; however, S-Video connections
typically provide better picture quality. Component Video or HDMI connections provide
the best signal quality and are required for
HDTV or progressive scanned DVD video.
NOTE : The HDMI digital connections are
compatible with DVI components with an
appropriate DVI-D cable adapter.
The RSX-1057 provides pass-through HDMI
switching only. It will send an HDMI digital
signal from a source component to the TV
monitor, but cannot convert any other type
of video to HDMI output and cannot display
its On Screen Menus on the HDMI output.
When using the HDMI connections, it is almost always necessary to also make connections using one of the other types.
Consider the following implications for your
system configuration:
On Screen Display: The RSX-1057 OSD
system is available on the TV monitor, when
using Composite, S-Video, or Component
Video connections from the RSX-1057 outputs
to the TV set. The OSD menus cannot be displayed when using HDMI connections from
the RSX-1057 to the TV monitor.
NOTE: When using a progressive scan or 1080i
video signal from the Component Video outputs of the RSX-1057, the TV monitor cannot
display the video signal and the OSD menus
at the same time. A “progressive” setting in the
Other Options setup menu allows the use of
the main OSD setup menus, even with progressive or HDTV signals. When the main OSD
setup menus are activated, the progressive
scan video input is interrupted and restored
when the OSD menus are cancelled. The
temporary OSD information displays (such as
volume setting, etc.) are not displayed.
RSX-1057 Surround Sound Receiver
Output Conversion: The RSX-1057 converts
Composite and S-Video signals to Component
Video signals for output to an NTSC or PAL
TV monitor. S-Video signals cannot be converted to Composite outputs and vice versa.
No other video formats can be converted to
HDMI signals. For maximum convenience,
connect the RSX-1057 to the TV monitor with
Component Video connections.
NOTE :
When a video input is selected for progressive mode on the Other Options menu,
the conversion from Composite or S-Video to
Component Video output is not available for
this input. The conversion from Composite or
S-VIDEO to Component Video output is only
available for the other video inputs.
Many digital HDTV monitors adjust scan
rates and other video parameters depending on the type of input connection. You may
wish to make multiple connections between
the RSX-1057 and the TV monitor, switching inputs on the TV to take advantage of
these features.
VIDEO 1–5
Composite Video Inputs
Five inputs accepts standard Composite video
signals from source components using standard 75 ohm RCA video cables.
VIDEO 1–3
Composite Video Outputs
Three RCA jacks, labeled COMPOSITE OUT
1–3, provide connections for sending Composite video signals for recording on a VCR
or other recording device.
These connections correspond to the VIDEO
IN 1–3 connections. Make sure that you are
consistent. If you hook up a particular VCR
to the VIDEO 1 inputs, hook up the VIDEO
1 output to the same VCR.
NOTE: The RSX-1057 cannot convert S-Video or
Component Video to Composite video. Therefore, only signals from the Composite video
inputs are available at these outputs.
VIDEO 1–5 S-Video Inputs
Five inputs, labeled S-VIDEO IN 1–5 accept
S-Video signals from source components.
18
VIDEO 1–3 S-Video Outputs
Three S-VIDEO jacks, labeled S-VIDEO OUT
1–3, provide connections for sending S-Video signals for recording on a VCR or other
recording device.
These connections correspond to the VIDEO
IN 1–3 connections. Make sure that you are
consistent. If you hook up a particular VCR
to the VIDEO 1 inputs, hook up the VIDEO
1 output to the same VCR.
NOTE : The RSX-1057 cannot convert Composite video or Component Video signals to
S-Video. Only signals received at the S-Video
inputs are available at these outputs.
VIDEO 1–3
Component Video Inputs
Component Video connections split the video into three signals – luminance (Y) and
chrominance (PB and PR ) signals, allowing
delivery of a reference quality picture with
high definition signals. Component Video
connections should be used for progressive
scan DVD players and high-definition television receivers. Each of these signals is carried by a separate 75 ohm video cable with
RCA connectors.
Three sets of inputs, labeled COMPONENT
VIDEO IN 1–3 accept Component video signals from source components.
NOTE: When using a progressive scan or 1080i
HDTV video signal from the Component Video
inputs, the TV monitor cannot display the video
signal and the OSD menus at the same time.
A “progressive” setting in the Other Options
setup menu allows the use of the main OSD
setup menus, even with progressive or HDTV
signals. When the main OSD setup menus
are displayed, the progressive video signal
is interrupted and restored when the OSD
menus are cancelled. The temporary OSD
information displays (such as volume setting,
etc.) are not displayed.
VIDEO 1–2
HDMI Inputs
HDMI inputs provide pass-through digital
video connections for use with components
that have either HDMI outputs or DVI-D outputs (with an appropriate DVI-HDMI adapter). HDMI connection carry video signals
in all formats including progressive scan up
to 1080p. The implementation of the HDMI
pass-through switching does not support audio
signals; thus, a separate audio connection is
necessary from an HDMI component.
Two inputs, labeled HDMI VIDEO IN 1–2 accept signals from source components.
NOTE : When using HDMI connections, the
TV monitor cannot display the OSD menus
and cannot display video from Composite,
S-Video, or Component Video sources. When
using the HDMI pass-through switching of
the RSX-1057, it is usually recommended to
also make connections using one of the other
video cabling standards.
TV Monitor Outputs
The TV MONITOR outputs of the RSX-1057
send the video signal to your TV monitor.
Four types of video output connections are
provided – RCA Composite video, S-Video,
Component Video, and HDMI digital.
The Composite video output only sends signals from Composite video inputs to the TV
monitor. The S-Video output only sends signals from S-Video video inputs to the TV. The
HDMI output only sends signals from HDMI
video inputs to the TV. The Component Video outputs convert interlaced signals from
S-Video or Composite source inputs to the
TV and, therefore, are the most convenient
type of connection.
NOTE : When a video input or inputs are selected for progressive mode on the Other
Options menu, the conversion from Composite or S-Video to Component Video output is
not available for those inputs. The conversion
from Composite or S-VIDEO to Component
Video output is only available for the other
video inputs.
If you have connected all of your source components with the same type of analog video
connection (Composite, S-Video, or Component Video), then you only need to make one
video connection from the RSX-1057 to the TV
monitor. In a system with only analog video
connections, you can connect the RSX-1057
to the TV monitor with only Component Video
connections because Composite and S-Video
signals are converted to Component Video
signals. In a system with HDMI connections,
it is also necessary to make an analog video
connection to the TV monitor in order to display OSD menus or video signals from nonHDMI source components.
English
19
HDMI connections:
• The RSX-1057 uses the HDMI Ver. 1.1
standard. TV monitors with HDMI inputs
should be compatible with this version.
• The video signal sent to the TV through the
HDMI connection will not be displayed
properly unless all HDMI components in
the system, including the TV monitor, are
compatible with the HDCP copy protection standard.
• Only audio signals passed-through directly
from the source component are sent to the
TV set through the HDMI connection. To
send decoded audio from the RSX-1057
to the TV, you must make a separate audio connection.
• TV monitors with DVI-D connections can
usually be connected to the HDMI output of the RSX-1057 with the use of an
appropriate 24-pin DVI-HMDI adaptor.
However, there are occasionally some incompatibilities with older DVI-D equipped
monitors.
• The video signal sent to the TV through the
HDMI connection will be a direct passthrough from the source component. The
output of the source component must be
set to a resolution that is compatible with
the TV monitor. If possible, the resolution
should be set to match the native resolution of the TV.
• In general, HDMI is the optimum connection for digital high-definition monitors
such as LCD, plasma, or DLP monitors.
Component video connections would be
the preferred connection for analog highdefinition monitors such as direct view
TVs and CRT-based projection monitors.
However, the choice of video connections
depends on many factors such as overall
system configuration, performance, and
operating convenience.
ZONE OUT Video Output
The ZONE OUT Video output of the RSX-1057
sends a Composite video signal to a TV monitor in Zone 2.
NOTE: Only Composite video input signals are
available at the Zone 2 video output.
Digital Audio
Input & Outputs
The RSX-1057 provides digital connections
which may be used in place of, or in addition
to, the analog audio input and output connections described in the previous sections.
These connections include five digital inputs
and two digital outputs (for recording).
These digital connections can be used with
any source component that supplies a digital signal, such as a DVD player, CD player,
or satellite TV tuner.
NOTE: With a digital connection, the RSX-1057
will be used to decode the signal, rather than
the source component’s internal decoders.
In general, you must use digital connections for a DVD player or other component
that supplies a Dolby Digital or DTS signal;
otherwise the RSX-1057 will not be able to
decode these formats.
Digital Inputs
The RSX-1057 accepts digital inputs from
source components such as CD players, satellite TV tuners, and DVD players. The builtin digital processor senses and adjusts to the
correct sampling rates.
There are five digital inputs on the rear panel,
three coaxial and two optical. These digital
inputs can be assigned to any of the input
sources using the INPUT SETUP screen during the setup process. For example, you can
assign the COAXIAL 1 digital input connector
to the VIDEO 1 source and the OPTICAL 2
digital input to the VIDEO 3 source.
NOTE :
When using digital connections, you
should also make the analog audio input
connections described previously. The analog connection is necessary to record to an
analog recorder in some circumstances or
for ZONE 2 operation
Digital Outputs
The RSX-1057 has two digital outputs (one
coaxial and one optical) to send the digital
signal from any of the digital inputs to a digital recorder or outboard digital processor.
When a digital input source signal is selected
for listening, that signal is automatically sent
to both digital outputs for recording.
NOTE : Only digital signals from source components are available at these outputs. Analog signals cannot be converted and are not
available at the digital outputs.
Other Connections
AC Input
Your RSX-1057 is configured at the factory
for the proper AC line voltage in the country
where you purchased it (USA: 120 volts/60Hz
AC or CE: 230 volts /50 Hz AC ). The AC
line configuration is noted on a decal on the
back of your unit.
Plug the supplied cord into the AC INPUT receptacle on the back of the unit.
NOTE: Memorized settings and video labels are
preserved indefinitely, even if the RSX-1057
is disconnected from AC power.
Master Power Switch
The large rocker switch on the rear panel is
a master power switch. When it is in the OFF
position, power to the unit is completely off.
When it is in the ON position, the front panel
STANDBY and remote control ON/OFF buttons can be used to activate the unit or put it
into standby mode.
NOTE : After all connections are completed,
the rear panel master power switch should
be put in the ON position and usually left in
that position.
12V TRIGGER Connections
Many Rotel amplifiers offer the option of
turning them on and off using assignable 12
volt trigger signals. These three connections
provide this 12 volt trigger signal from the
RSX-1057. When the RSX-1057 is activated,
a 12 volt DC signal is sent to the amplifiers
to turn them on. When the RSX-1057 is put
in STANDBY mode, the trigger signal is interrupted and the amplifiers turn off.
NOTE: The 12V Trigger outputs can be assigned
to turn on only when specific input sources
are activated. See the Input Setup and Zone
2 Setup menus in the Setup section of this
manual for details.
RSX-1057 Surround Sound Receiver
To use the remote turn on feature, connect
one of the RSX-1057’s 12V TRIG OUT jacks to
the 12 volt trigger input of a Rotel amplifier,
using a cable with mono 3.5 mm mini-plugs
on both ends. The +12 V DC signal appears
at the “tip” connector.
REM IN Jacks
Two 3.5 mm mini-jacks (labeled ZONE and
EXT) receive command codes from an industry-standard infrared receivers (Xantech,
etc.), used when the IR signals from a hand
held remote control cannot reach the front
panel IR sensor.
EXT: The EXT jack is used with an outboard
IR receiver to duplicate the front panel IR
sensor. This feature is useful when the unit
is installed in a cabinet and the front panel
sensor is blocked or when IR signals need to
be relayed to other components.
ZONE: The ZONE jack is used with IR repeater
systems to receiver signals from IR control systems in remote location. For example, remote
control signals sent to the ZONE REM IN control the ZONE 2 features of the RSX-1057 and
can be relayed to other components.
Consult your authorized Rotel dealer for
information on external receivers and the
proper wiring of a 3.5 mm mini-plugs to fit
the REM IN jacks.
NOTE : The IR signals from the EXT REMOTE
IN and ZONE REMOTE IN jacks can be relayed to source components using external
IR emitters or hard-wired connections from
the IR OUT jacks. See the following section
for additional information.
IR OUT Jacks
The IR OUT 1 & 2 jacks send IR signals received at the ZONE REM IN or the EXT REM
IN jacks to an infrared blaster or emitter
placed in front of a source component’s IR
sensor. In addition, the IR OUT can be hardwired to Rotel CD players, DVD players, or
tuners with a compatible connector.
These outputs are used to allow IR signals
from Zone 2 to be sent to the source components, or to pass along IR signals from a
remote in the main room when the sensors
on the source components are blocked by
installation in a cabinet.
See your authorized Rotel dealer for information on IR emitters and repeater systems.
20
Computer I/O
The RSX-1057 can be operated from a computer with audio system control software
from third-party developers. This control is
accomplished by sending operating codes
from the computer via a hard-wired RS-232
serial connection. In addition, the RSX-1057
can be updated using special software
from Rotel.
The COMPUTER I/O input provides the necessary network connections on the rear panel. It accepts standard RJ-45 8-pin modular
plugs, such as those commonly used in 10BaseT UTP Ethernet cabling.
For additional information on the connections,
cabling, software, and operating codes for
computer control or updating of the RSX-1057,
contact your authorized Rotel dealer.

1, make sure that you use VIDEO 1 inputs
and outputs for all analog audio and video
connections.
Connect a video cable (Composite Video or
S-Video) from the output of the DVD player to
the appropriate VIDEO IN 1–5 input.
NOTE : If you plan to distribute video from the
DVD player to a TV monitor in Zone 2, you
must make a Composite Video connection.
High Definition TVs:
If you intend to use the progressive scan
feature with an HDTV monitor, you should
use Component Video and/or HDMI video
connections from the DVD player. If the DVD
player has a DVI-D output, this can usually be
connected to the HDMI input on the RSX-1057
using a DVI-HDMI adapter.

High Definition TVs:
With a high-definition cable or satellite tuner
and an HDTV monitor, you should use Component Video and/or HDMI video connections from the tuner. If the tuner has a DVI-D
output, this can usually be connected to the
HDMI input on the RSX-1057 using a DVIHDMI adapter.
Connect a set of Component Video cables
or an HDMI cable from the tuner to the appropriate VIDEO 1 or VIDEO 2 input on the
RSX-1057.
Digital Audio connections:
Connect the digital output of the tuner to any
one of the OPTICAL IN or COAXIAL IN digital
inputs on the RSX-1057. Use the INPUT SETUP
screen to assign that digital input to the same

See Figure 11
Connect the left and right analog outputs from
an audio tape deck to the AUDIO IN jacks
labeled TAPE IN (left and right).
Connect the left/right AUDIO OUT/TAPE OUT
jacks to the inputs on the audio tape deck.
Optional: For a digital recording device,
connect the digital output of the recorder to
one of the OPTICAL IN or COAXIAL IN digital
inputs on the RSX-1057. Use the INPUT SETUP screen to assign that digital input to the
TAPE source. If the recording device accepts
a digital recording input, connect one of the
OPTICAL OUT or COAXIAL OUT connections
to the digital input of the recorder.
No video connections are required for an
audio recording device.
VCR or Digital Video Recorder
See Figure 9
VCR connections can be made to the VIDEO
1, VIDEO 2, or VIDEO 3 inputs and outputs.
If you choose VIDEO 1, make sure that you
use VIDEO 1 inputs and outputs for all analog audio and video connections.
Connect video cables (Composite Video,
S-Video, and/or Component Video) from the
output of the VCR to the appropriate VIDEO
IN 1–3 input.
Connect video cables (Composite Video
and/or Component Video) from the VIDEO
OUT jacks to the VCR inputs.
Connect the left and right analog outputs
from the VCR to one pair of the AUDIO IN
jacks labeled VIDEO 1–3.
Connect the left and right AUDIO OUT
jacks for VIDEO 1–3 to the analog inputs
on the VCR.
Optional: For a digital recording device,
you can use digital audio connections. Connect the digital output of the recorder to one
of the OPTICAL IN or COAXIAL IN digital
inputs on the RSX-1057. Use the INPUT SETUP screen to assign that digital input to the
VIDEO source (VIDEO 1, 2, or 3) used for
the previous connections. If the recording
device accepts a digital recording input,
connect one of the OPTICAL OUT or COAXIAL OUT connections to the digital input
of the recorder.
DVD-A or SACD Player
See Figure 7
To hook up a DVD-A, an SACD player, or any
external surround decoder, use audio RCA
cables to connect the outputs of the player to
the RCA jacks labeled MULTI INPUT, making
sure that you observe proper channel consistency, i.e. connect the right front channel to
the R FRONT input, etc. Depending on your
system configuration, make six connections
(FRONT L & R, SURROUND L & R, CENTER,
and SUBWOOFER), seven connections (adding a CENTER BACK connection), or eight
connections (adding two CENTER BACK
connections).
The MULTI inputs are analog bypass inputs,
passing signals directly through to the Volume Control and preamp outputs, bypassing
all of the digital processing. The RSX-1057
provides an optional bass redirect feature
that duplicates the seven main channels and
passes them through an analog 100 Hz low
pass filter, creating a summed mono subwoofer output derived from the main channels. See the INPUT SETUP menu in the Setup section of this manual for details on bass
redirect feature.
TV Monitor
See Figure 5
Connect the TV MONITOR output to the corresponding input on your television monitor,
using Composite video, S-Video, Component
Video, and/or HDMI cables.
NOTE:
The RCA Composite video output only
sends signals from RCA Composite video
source inputs to the TV monitor. The S-Video
output only sends signals from S-Video source
inputs to the TV. The HDMI output only sends
signals from HMDI source inputs to the TV
and cannot display the On Screen Menus.
The RSX-1057 upconverts Composite and
S-Video signals to Component Video.
When configuring the unit, you must specify
either an NTSC or a PAL standard TV monitor. See the Other Options menu in the Setup
section of this manual.
For HDTV monitors:
To send progressive scanned or high-definition signals to the TV, you must connect it
with either a set of three Component Video
cables or an HDMI digital cable. Either can
provide excellent results, but in general using
the HDMI cable is preferable for a monitor
that displays digital signals (LCD, plasma,
DLP, etc.). Component Video cables would
be preferable for CRT-based direct view or
rear projection monitors that display analog signals.
If you use the HDMI connection, the monitor will display video at whatever resolution
is sent from the source component. Set the
resolution of the source component to match
the TV’s native resolution.
RSX-1057 Surround Sound Receiver
When using the HDMI output, the RSX-1057’s
menu screens and signals from non-HDMI
components cannot be displayed on the TV
monitor. Therefore, it is usually advisable to
make connections using Component Video
cables in addition to HDMI connections.
The RSX-1057 HDMI connections conform to
the Version 1.1 standard.
You can usually connect the HDMI output of
the RSX-1057 to a monitor with DVI-D inputs by
using an appropriate HDMI-DVI adapter.
NOTE: In order for HDMI signals to be displayed
properly, the TV monitor must be compatible
with HDCP copy protection.
Speakers
See Figure 3
The RSX-1057 has built-in amplifiers to power
up to five speakers. There are five pairs of
binding post connections (one pair for each
speaker) which accept bare wire, spade
lugs, or banana plug connectors (in some
markets).
NOTE :
Speakers should have an impedance
of 8 ohms or higher.
Each pair of connectors is color-coded for
polarity: red for positive and black for negative. All speakers and all speaker wire is also
marked for polarity. For proper performance,
you must maintain this polarity at all speaker
connections. Always connect the positive terminal of each speaker to the corresponding
red speaker terminal on the RSX-1057 and the
negative speaker terminal to the corresponding black connector on the RSX-1057.
There are connectors for FRONT LEFT, FRONT
RIGHT, SURROUND LEFT, SURROUND RIGHT,
and CENTER. You must connect each of the
five speakers to the proper terminal on the
RSX-1057.
Route the wires from the RSX-1057 to the
speakers. Leave enough slack so you can
move the components to allow access to the
speaker connectors. If you are using banana
plugs, connect them to the wires and then plug
into the backs of the binding posts. The collars of the binding posts should be screwed
in all the way (clockwise). If you are using
22
terminal lugs, connect them to the wires. If
you are attaching bare wires directly to the
binding posts, separate the wire conductors
and strip back the insulation from the end of
each conductor. Be careful not to cut into the
wire strands. Unscrew the binding post collars. Place the connector lug or the twisted
bare wire around the binding post shaft. Turn
the collars clockwise to clamp the connector
lug or wire firmly in place.
1. Connect the front right speaker to the
binding posts labeled FRONT/CB/ZONE
RIGHT/2.
2. Connect the front left speaker to the binding posts labeled FRONT/CB/ZONE
LEFT/1.
3. Connect the center channel speaker to
binding posts labeled CENTER.
4. Connect the surround right speaker to binding posts labeled SURROUND RIGHT.
5. Connect the surround left speaker to binding posts labeled SURROUND LEFT.
NOTE : Be sure that no loose wire strands can
touch adjacent wires or connectors.
After you have connected the speakers, you
need to configure the RSX-1057 for the size
and style of speakers in your system and calibrate the relative volume levels of the speakers using the built-in test tones. See the Setup
section of this manual.
Redirect Feature
The RSX-1057 has a “redirect” feature that
allows you to use the front left and front right
amplifier channels to power center back or
Zone 2 speakers. For example, you might
use a separate Rotel stereo power amplifier
to drive the front speakers and then use the
extra amplifier channels in the RSX-1057 to
power two center back speakers.
If your system does not have center back
speakers, you can also redirect the built-in
center back channel amplifiers to drive two
Zone 2 speakers.
To use the redirect feature to power center back
speakers in a 6.1 or 7.1 channel system:
1. Connect the center back speaker in a
6.1 channel system or the center back
left speaker in a 7.1 channel system to
the binding posts labeled FRONT/CB/
ZONE LEFT/1.
2. Connect the center back right speaker to
binding posts labeled FRONT/CB/ZONE
RIGHT/2.
3. Go to the SPEAKER SETUP screen of the
ON-SCREEN MENU system and change
the REDIRECT setting to the center back
channels instead of the front channels.
Connecting a Subwoofer
See Figure 3
To hook up a powered subwoofer, connect a
standard RCA audio cable from either of the
two PREOUT jacks labeled SUB to the input
on the subwoofer’s power amp. Both SUB
outputs provide the same signal. Use either
connection for a single subwoofer. Use both
connections to hook up two subwoofers.
After you have connected the subwoofer, you
need to configure the RSX-1057 to use the
subwoofer and calibrate the relative volume
level of the subwoofer using the built-in test
tones. See the Setup section of this manual.
Amplifiers
To hook up power amplifiers, connect
an audio cable from each PREOUT jack to
the input of the amplifier channel that will
power the corresponding speaker. In a full
home theater system, you will need to make
as many as seven different connections in
addition to the subwoofer. These connections are labeled FRONT L &R, CENTER, and
REAR L & R. There are two CENTER jacks,
use either jack for a single center channel
or both if you have two center channels. In
six or seven channel systems, you will make
one or two additional connections for center back speaker(s). These jacks are labeled
CB1 and CB2. Use CB1 for a single center
back channel.
Make sure that you have each output connected to the correct amplifier channel (front
right, left rear, etc.).

AM Antenna
See Figure 12
The RSX-1057 includes a plastic loop antenna to receive AM radio signals. Remove this
antenna from the box and locate it near the
RSX-1057. It can be tacked to a wall, using
the mounting tab provided. Alternatively, you
can fold the center portion of the antenna to
form a tabletop stand.
Connect the 300 ohm twin-conductor wire
from the loop antenna to the push terminals
labeled AM LOOP, attaching one wire to
each terminal. It does not matter which wire
attaches to which terminal, but make sure
that the connections are solid and that the
two wires do not touch.
You may need to rotate or otherwise reorient
the antenna to find the best position.
NOTE :
To use an outdoor antenna, connect its
300 ohm twin-conductor wire to the terminals
in place of the loop antenna.
FM Antenna
See Figure 12
The RSX-1057 is supplied with a T-shaped indoor FM antenna. Connect the coax F-type plug
to the FM antenna connector on the RSX-1057.
For best reception, unfold the T-shaped antenna. Eyelets at both ends of the T allow tacking
the antenna to a wall, if desired. Experiment
with positioning for best reception.
NOTE : To use an outdoor antenna, connect
its 75 ohm coax lead wire to the FM connector instead of the indoor wire antenna, only
after a professional contractor has installed
the antenna system in accordance with local
electrical codes.
OPERATING THE
RSX-1057
Considering its large number of features, settings, and options, the RSX-1057 is remarkably easy to operate. The key to operating
the RSX-1057 is its system of On-Screen Displays (OSD) which guide you through various choices.
The RSX-1057 can be operated from the front
panel or the remote control. Front panel controls are unusually simple to use, with just a
few knobs and buttons to guide you through
OSD menu options. The remote control provides more complete control options.
To guide you through the operation of the
RSX-1057, this section of the manual starts
with explaining the basic layout and function of the front panel and the remote control. Then, we explain the basic operations
such as turning the unit on and off, adjusting volume, selecting a source for listening,
etc. Following that is a detailed explanation
of surround sound modes and how to configure the RSX-1057 for various types of recordings. Finally, there are instructions for
additional features and Zone 2 operations.
All of these are features that may be used in
normal use. The last section of the manual
(Configuration) details options that may be
selected during initial setup and configuration of the unit, many of which will be set
once and left untouched.
Throughout this manual, numbers in gray boxes
refer to the RSX-1057 illustration at the front
of this manual. Letters refer to the RR-1060
remote illustration. When both appear, the
function is found on both the RSX-1057 and
the remote. When only one appears, that
function is found only on the RSX-1057 or
the remote.
Front Panel Overview
The following is a brief overview of the control and features on the front panel of the
RSX-1057. Details concerning the use of these
controls are provided in subsequent sections
of this manual describing various tasks.
Front-panel Display
The fluorescent (FL) display in the upper portion of the RSX-1057 provides information
about the status of the unit, tuner reception,
and activation of special features. The main
portion of the display typically shows the current input source (or radio station frequency)
selected for listening on the left side and the
current input source selected for recording
on the right.
Icons along the left side of the display show
the currently selected digital input. Icons at
the right of the display show individual surround channels and are used in configuring the system. Icons across the bottom of
the display show the current surround mode
and other special features. Icons at the top
of display assist in tuning radio stations and
operation of RDS/RBDS features.
The FL display can be turned off, if desired. See
the MENU button section for instructions.

The remainder of the buttons and controls on the front panel are described in the
Overview of Buttons and Controls section.
Remote Control Overview
The RSX-1057 includes a full-function learning
remote control that can operate the RSX-1057
plus nine other audio/video components.
A separate manual gives detailed instructions
on programming and using the RR-1060 to
replace all of the remote controls in your system. The RR-1060 manual covers many extra
features (such as custom labeling of remote
buttons that appear in its LCD display). To
avoid duplication, we provide only basic information about using the RR-1060 to operate the RSX-1057 in this manual.
RSX-1057 Surround Sound Receiver
Many of the RR-1060 functions duplicate the
front panel controls. For that reason, we cover

Basic Operations
This section covers the basic operating controls of the RSX-1057 and the remote.
Power and Standby On/Off
The rear panel POWER switch on the RSX-1057
is a master power switch. The button must
be in the ON position for the unit to operate. When it is in the OFF position, the unit
is fully off and cannot be activated from the
front panel or remote control.
In normal operation, the rear panel POWER
switch is always left in the ON position. The
RSX-1057 is activated and deactivated using
the front panel STANDBY button, the remote
control POWER button, or the remote ON/
OFF buttons. When activated, the RSX-1057
is fully functional and the front panel display
illuminated. When deactivated, the unit goes
into a standby mode, with minimal power applied to the microprocessor.
NOTE : When the unit has AC power applied
and the rear panel POWER switch is on, the
front panel STANDBY LED lights, regardless
of whether the unit is in standby mode or
activated.
The front panel STANDBY button and the remote control POWER button function as toggle switches. Press either button to activate
the unit. Press either button again to put the
unit in standby mode.
The ON/OFF buttons on the remote serve
the same function, but provide discrete ON
(active) or OFF (standby) commands.
When using the Zone 2 capability of the
RSX-1057, the standby activation is completely independent for the main room and
Zone 2. ON/OFF commands sent from the
remote in the main room will not affect Zone
2. Pressing the ON/OFF buttons on a remote
located in Zone 2 will only affect that zone
and not the main room. When the unit is activated in ZONE 2, the ZONE 2 LED on the
front panel is lit.
There are three available power mode options, which may be useful in configuring the
RSX-1057 for special system configurations.
See the Other Options menu in the Setup section of this manual for additional details on
changing the default standby behavior.

components.
NOTE:
When the TUNER input source button is
pressed, the frequency of the currently tuned
station is displayed. Pressing the button again
toggles the display to show the word TUNER
instead of the frequency display.
All of the source inputs can be customized
using the ON-SCREEN DISPLAY configuration menus to accept either analog signals or
digital signals from one of the five assignable
26
digital inputs. When a digital input is assigned,
the RSX-1057 checks for the presence of a
digital signal at that input. If a digital signal
is present when the source is selected, it is
automatically activated and the proper surround mode enabled. If no digital signal is
present, the analog inputs for that source are
selected. This auto-sensing is the preferred
configuration for digital source inputs such
as DVD players. When an ANALOG input
is assigned, the unit will not access a digital
signal, even though one may be available
at the digital input.
By default, the source input buttons are factory
configured to select the following inputs:
CD:
Tuner:
Tape:
Video 1:
Video 2:
Video 3:
Video 4:
Video 5:
Analog input

Overview of
Surround Formats
To get the best performance from your
RSX-1057, it helps to understand the many
surround sound formats available today, to
know which decoding process to use for a
particular recording, and how to select it. This
section provides basic background information about surround sound formats. The following sections provide detailed operating
instructions for automatic and manual selection of surround modes.
NOTE : The RSX-1057 has built-in amplifiers to
drive five speakers in a 5.1 channel system.
To use surround modes for 6.1 or 7.1 channel systems, you will need a separate power
amplifier to drive one or two speakers.
Dolby Surround
Dolby Pro Logic II
The most widely available surround sound
format for consumer audio/video is Dolby
Surround®, available on nearly all commercial VHS tapes, many television broadcasts,
and most DVDs. Dolby Surround is the consumer version of the analog Dolby Stereo
system first introduced in the film industry in
1972. It is a matrix-encoding system that records front left, front center, front right, and
a mono surround channel into a 2-channel
stereo recording. During playback, a Dolby
Pro Logic® or Pro Logic II decoder extracts
each channel and distributes it to the appropriate speakers.
The original Dolby Pro Logic decoder delivered
a mono signal with reduced high-frequency
content to the surround speakers. A more
advanced decoder in the RSX-1057, Dolby
Pro Logic II, increases the separation and
frequency response of the surround channels
for significantly improved performance with
Dolby Surround encoded recordings.
Dolby Pro Logic II decoding should be used
for any analog recording labeled “Dolby Surround” or any Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtrack.
Dolby Pro Logic II does a superb job deriving
surround sound from conventional 2-channel
stereo recordings, using phase relationships
to extract front, right, center, and surround
channels. A “music mode” makes Pro Logic
II an excellent choice for audio CDs.
Dolby Digital
In 1992, a digital recording system, called
Dolby Digital, was first used in the film industry. Dolby Digital is a recording/playback
system that uses compression techniques to
store large amounts of audio data efficiently,
much like the JPEG format stores large photographs in small files on a computer. Because it is capable of performance beyond
that of audio CDs and can tailor its output
for a wide ranges of system configurations,
Dolby Digital is the standard audio format for
DVDs and for digital television broadcasting
in the United States.
The Dolby Digital system can be used to record up to six discrete audio channels, but
can also be used for fewer. For example, a
Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtrack is a digital 2channel recording of a matrix encoded Dolby Surround soundtrack.. To play a Dolby
Digital 2.0 recording, use Dolby Pro Logic II
decoding as previously described.
The most common use of Dolby Digital in
newer films, in both the film industry and in
home theater, is Dolby Digital 5.1. Instead
of encoding multiple surround channels on
a two-channel recording, Dolby Digital 5.1
records six discrete channels: front left, front
center, front right, surround left, surround right,
and a Low Frequency Effects (LFE) channel
containing ultra-low bass signals intended
for a subwoofer. A Dolby Digital decoder
extracts the channels from the digital bitstream, converts them to analog signals and
routes them to the appropriate amplifiers and
speakers. All channels provide full frequency
response with total separation between all
channels and large dynamic range capability. A Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack can provide more impressive surround sound than
matrix Dolby Surround.
Decoding of Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtracks
is automatic. When the RSX-1057 detects a
Dolby 5.1 signal on one of its digital inputs,
it activates the proper processing. Keep in
mind that Dolby Digital is only available
from digital sources (a DVD, a LaserDisc, or
a Digital TV/Cable/SAT tuner). Also, you
must connect the source with a digital cable
(coax or optical) to an active digital input
on the RSX-1057.
NOTE : Many DVDs have a Dolby Digital 2.0
matrix soundtrack as the default, which should
be decoded with Pro Logic II. The Dolby Digital
5.1 soundtrack may have to be selected as an
option from the setup menus at the beginning
of the DVD. Look for a Dolby Digital 5.1 selection under “Audio” or “Languages” or “Setup
Options” when you insert the disc.
DTS 5.1
DTS 96/24
DTS® (Digital Theater Systems) is an alternative digital format competing with Dolby Digital in both movie theaters and home theater
markets. The basic functions of the DTS system are similar to those of Dolby Digital (for
example, 5.1 discrete channels), however
the technical details of the compression and
decoding processes differ somewhat and a
DTS decoder is required.
A recent extension of the DTS encoding system is DTS 96/24. These recordings provide
the performance of a 96kHz sampling rate
while still using actual 48kHz sampling rate
of standard DTS discs.
Like Dolby Digital, DTS can only be used on a
digital recording and, therefore, is only available for home use on LaserDiscs, DVDs, or
other digital formats. To use the RSX-1057’s
DTS decoder, you must connect your DVD
player to the RSX-1057’s digital inputs.
As with Dolby Digital 5.1, detection and proper
decoding of DTS 5.1 signals is automatic.
NOTE :
DVDs with a DTS soundtrack almost always have it configured as an option to the
standard matrix Dolby Surround format. To use
DTS, you may have to go to the setup menus
at the beginning of the DVD and select “DTS
5.1” instead of “Dolby Surround” or “Dolby
Digital 5.1”. In addition, many DVD players
have the DTS digital bitstream turned off by
default and cannot output a DTS soundtrack
(even if selected on the disc’s menu) until you
activate the player’s DTS output. If you hear
no sound the first time you attempt to play a
DTS disc, go to the DVD player’s configuration menus and turn on the DTS bitstream.
This is a one-time setting and need only be
done once.
RSX-1057 Surround Sound Receiver
DTS Neo:6
The RSX-1057 features a second type of
DTS surround sound decoding: DTS Neo:6.
This decoding system is similar to Dolby Pro
Logic II and is designed for playback of any
2-channel stereo recording, either matrixencoded or not. The Neo:6 decoder can
be used with any conventional 2-channel
source such a stereo TV or FM broadcast or
a CD. It can also be used as an alternative
method of decoding matrix-encoded Dolby
Surround recordings or TV broadcasts. Activate the DTS Neo:6 decoding with the DTS
Neo:6 button as detailed later in this section.
DTS Neo:6 is not used with DTS 5.1 digital
sources and the button need not be pressed
for those recordings.
Dolby Digital Surround EX
DTS-ES
6.1 and 7.1 Channel Surround
In 1999, the first Dolby Digital soundtrack
was released to theaters with an additional
center back surround channel, intended to
increase the directional effects from behind
the audience. This additional surround channel is encoded into the two existing surround
channels in Dolby Digital 5.1, using a matrix
encoding process similar to that used previously in Dolby Surround. This new extended
surround capability is called Dolby Digital
Surround EX.
DTS has added a similar capability for recording this extended surround information
called DTS-ES® 6.1 Matrix. They have also
taken it one step further and developed the
capability to record this extended surround
information as a discrete channel in a system
called DTS-ES® 6.1 Discrete.
All of these systems are extensions of the existing Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1 digital
surround sound formats. Users with one center back speaker (a 6.1 configuration) or two
center back speakers (a 7.1 configuration)
can take advantage of this extended surround
information. On traditional 5.1 channel systems, Dolby Digital Surround EX or DTS-ES 6.1
discs sound exactly the same as 5.1 channel
discs in each respective format.
28
If you have configured your system with one
or two center back speakers, decoding of
DTS-ES discs is automatic, just as it is with
standard DTS soundtracks. Likewise, decoding of Dolby Digital Surround EX discs is automatic with one exception. Some Surround
EX titles do not have the detection “flag”
encoded on the disc. To activate the Dolby
Digital Surround EX features for these discs
(or for standard 5.1 channel Dolby Digital
discs), you must manually activate Dolby Surround EX processing.
Dolby Pro Logic IIx
6.1 and 7.1 Channel Surround
The latest technology from Dolby uses advanced matrix decoding for the surround
channels in a 6.1 channel or 7.1 channel
system. Working with any 2.0 channel or
5.1 channel recording, Dolby Pro Logic IIx
processing distributes the surround channel
information among three or four surround
channels, with a Music mode optimized for
musical recordings and a Cinema mode optimized for film soundtracks.
Rotel XS
6.1 and 7.1 Channel Surround
The RSX-1057 also features Rotel XS (eXtended Surround) processing provides extended
surround performance on 6.1 and 7.1 channel systems. The key benefit of Rotel XS is
that it works at all times with all multichannel digital signals, even those that might not
otherwise activate Dolby Digital EX or DTSES surround decoding for the center back
channel(s). Always available when center
back speaker(s) are configured in the system
setup, Rotel XS decodes the surround channels and distributes the extended surround
channels to the center back speaker(s) in a
way that tends to create a diffuse surround
effect. Rotel XS works with matrix-encoded
surround signals (such as non-flagged DTSES and Dolby Surround EX discs) as well as
digital source material that is not Dolby Surround EX encoded (such as DTS 5.1, Dolby
Digital 5.1, and even Dolby Pro Logic II decoded Dolby Digital 2.0 recordings).
DSP Music Modes
Unlike all of the formats mentioned above,
the RSX-1057 offers four surround modes that
are not part of a specific recording/playback
system. These modes (MUSIC 1–4) use digital
signal processing that adds special acoustic
effects to any signal. DSP processing can be
used with Dolby Surround recordings, Dolby
Digital recordings, CDs, radio broadcasts,
or any other source material; however, typically DSP settings would be used with source
material for which there is no specific surround decoder.
The four MUSIC MODES in the RSX-1057
use digital delay and reverberation effects
to simulate progressively larger acoustic environments with MUSIC 1 being the smallest type of venue (such as a jazz club) and
MUSIC 4 being a large venue (such as a
stadium). Typically used to add ambience
and a sense of space when listening to music
sources or other sources that lack surround
sound encoding.
2Ch/5Ch/7Ch Stereo Formats
The RSX-1057 also provides four modes that
disable all surround processing and deliver
stereo signals to amplifiers and speakers.
There are three options:
2CH Stereo: Turns off the center channel
and all surround channels in the system and
delivers a conventional 2-channel signal
to the front speakers. If the system is configured to route bass signals from the front
speakers to the subwoofer, this capability
remains in effect.
Analog Bypass: For 2-channel analog
inputs, there is a special stereo mode that
bypasses ALL of the RSX-1057’s digital processing. The two front speakers receive pure
analog stereo full-range signals with no subwoofer crossover, no delay, no level adjustments, and no contour adjustment.
5CH Stereo: Distributes a stereo signal to
5.1 channel systems. The left channel signal
is sent, unchanged, to the front left and surround left speakers. The right channel is sent
to the front right and surround right speakers. A mono sum of the two channels is sent
to the center channel speaker.
7CH Stereo: This mode is the same as
5CH Stereo described above except that it
also distributes stereo signals to center back
speaker(s) installed in the system.

Other Digital Formats
Several other digital formats are not surround
sound formats at all, but rather systems for
digital 2-channel recordings.
PCM 2-channel: This is an uncompressed
2-channel digital signal such as that used for
standard CD recordings and some DVD recordings, particularly of older films.
HDCD ® : This system uses higher bit rates
and a variety of enhancements to improve
the sonic performance compared to standard
audio CDs. These discs, labeled HDCD, can
be played on standard CD players. However, when the digital signal is decoded using
an HDCD decoder like that in the RSX-1057,
they will provide exceptional musical reproduction.
DTS Music 5.1 Discs: These discs are a
variation of audio CDs that include a DTS 5.1
channel recording. The RSX-1057 decodes
these discs just like a DTS movie soundtrack
when played on a CD player or DVD player
with a digital output connection.
DVD-A music discs: Taking advantage of
the increased storage capacity of the DVD
disc, new high bit rate multichannel audio recordings are available on DVD-A discs. DVDA discs may include multiple versions of the
recording including standard PCM stereo,
Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS 5.1, and 96kHz/24
bit (or higher) multichannel recordings using
MLP compression. Several of these formats
(standard PCM, Dolby Digital, and DTS 5.1
can be decoded by the RSX-1057 when the
DVD player is connected with a digital cable. However, the existing optical and coax
digital connection standard does not provide
sufficient bandwidth for multichannel high
sampling rate MLP recordings. Therefore,
DVD-A discs with these high-resolution audio
soundtracks must be decoded by a the DVD
player and the resulting analog signals sent
to the RSX-1057’s MULTI INPUT.
SACD®: This is a proprietary high-resolution
audio standard for use on SACD compatible
disc players. As with high-resolution DVD-A
discs, the bandwidth is too high for today’s
digital connection. Thus, these discs must
be decoded by SACD compatible player,
with the output sent to the RSX-1057’s MULTI
INPUTS.
MP3: The RSX-1057 also features a decoder
for the digital MP3 (MPEG1- Audio Layer 3)
compression format. MP3 format recordings
are available on the Internet and can be played
on portable MP3 players or some disc players that can read CD-ROM discs connected
to the RSX-1057’s digital inputs.
MPEG Multichannel: The RSX-1057 can
decode MPEG Multichannel digital recordings. Widely used in Europe, this format
uses MPEG data compression to record up
to 5.1 channels of discrete digital audio,
similar in function to the Dolby Digital and
DTS formats.
Automatic Surround
Modes
Decoding of digital sources connected to the
digital inputs is generally automatic, with detection triggered by a “flag” embedded in the
digital recording telling the RSX-1057 what
decoding format is required. For example,
when Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 channel
surround is detected, the RSX-1057 activates
the proper decoding.
The unit will also detect DTS-ES Matrix 6.1
or DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 discs and activate
DTS-ES® Extended Surround decoding. Dolby Digital Surround EX recordings also trigger automatic decoding (although not all
Surround EX DVDs have the necessary flag
and may require manually activating Surround EX decoding).
Likewise, a digital input from an HDCD® encoded compact disc, a standard CD, a DTS
96/24 disc, or MP3 player will be auto-detected and properly decoded to 2CH stereo
operation.
Dolby Pro Logic IIx or Rotel XS processing
can be configured to be automatically active
in all 6.1 or 7.1 channel systems configured
with center back speaker(s) and will ensure
proper extended surround decoding of all
multichannel digital signals, even those that
might not otherwise trigger the proper extended surround mode.
In many cases, the RSX-1057 will also recognize a digital signal with Dolby Surround
encoding (such as the default soundtrack on
many DVDs) and activate Dolby® Pro Logic
II® decoding.
NOTE: A digital signal coming into the RSX-1057
will be recognized and properly decoded.
However, on a DVD with multiple soundtracks,
you must tell the DVD player which one to
send to the RSX-1057. For example, you may
need to use the DVD’s menu system to select
the Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 soundtrack
rather than the default Dolby Digital 2.0 Dolby
Surround soundtrack.
Additionally, you can configure a default
surround mode for each input using the INPUT SETUP menu (see the Setup section of
this manual). Combined with the auto-detection of Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS, this
default surround setting makes operation
of the RSX-1057 surround modes totally automatic. For example, if you set Dolby Pro
Logic II movie mode as the default for all of
your video inputs, the RSX-1057 will automatically decode Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS
soundtracks when they are played and use
Pro Logic II matrix decoding for all other recordings. For stereo inputs such as CD and
Tuner, you could select STEREO mode as the
default for 2-channel playback or Dolby Pro
Logic II music mode if you prefer to hear music sources in surround sound.
Manually Selecting
Surround Modes
As described in the previous section, the combination of auto-detection of Dolby Digital
and DTS recordings and setting default surround modes for each input during the setup
of the RSX-1057 makes operation of surround
modes totally automatic. For many users, this
automatic surround mode selection will meet
all of their listening needs.
For users who prefer a more active role in setting surround modes, buttons on the remote
and the front panel provide manual selection
of surround mode that are not automatically
detected or, in some cases, to override an
automatic setting.
Manual settings available from the front panel
and/or the remote might be used when you
want to play:
• Standard 2-channel stereo (left/right speakers only) with no surround processing.
• Downmixed 2-channel playback of Dolby
Digital 5.1 or DTS recordings.
RSX-1057 Surround Sound Receiver
• Dolby 3-channel stereo (left/right/center)

RSX-1057 Surround Sound Receiver
Analog Stereo
This type of recording includes any conventional stereo signal from the RSX-1057’s analog inputs, including analog audio from CD
players, FM tuners, VCRs, tape decks, etc.
Analog stereo inputs require a choice about
how the signal is routed through the RSX-1057.
One option is the analog bypass mode. In
this mode, the stereo signal is routed directly
to the volume control and the outputs. It is
pure 2-channel stereo, bypassing all of the
digital circuitry. None of the bass management features, speaker level settings, contour
settings, or delay settings are active. There
is no subwoofer output. A full-range signal
is sent directly to two speakers.
The other option converts the analog inputs
to digital signals, passing them through the
digital processors in the RSX-1057. This option
allows all of the features to be active including bass management settings, crossovers,
subwoofer outputs, contour settings, etc. In
this mode, you can select several surround
modes including 2-CH Stereo, Dolby 3-Stereo, 5-CH Stereo, 7-CH Stereo modes. You
can also use Dolby Pro Logic II or Pro Logic

Speaker Level
The levels of all channels should be calibrated
using the TEST TONE procedure during the
initial setup of the RSX-1057. You can make
a temporary change in the relative volume
of the center, surround, center back, or subwoofer channels using buttons on the remote
control or the front panel controls. These
temporary adjustments only remain in effect
until a different input is selected or until the
RSX-1057 is turned off.
To adjust speaker levels using the
remote:
1. Press a selection button on the remote to
select a channel (or pair of channels) for
adjustment. Press the C button to adjust the
CENTER channel. Press the S button to adjust the SUBWOOFER channel. Press the
R button to adjust the rear SURROUND or
CENTER BACK channels (each press of the
R button toggles between the SURROUND
NOTE : If no level adjustment is made for 10
seconds, the levels revert to the default calibrated settings.
As you select a speaker in the above adjustments, you may notice an addition choice,
“group delay”. See the following for an explanation of this feature.
Group Delay
The SPEAKER adjustments (described above)
can also be used to make a temporary adjustment to the group delay or “lip-synch”
delay. Group delay delays the overall audio
signal (to all speakers) by a specified amount
to correct for situations where the video and
audio signals are out of synch. This can occur with upconverted digital TV signals or
when trying to match a radio broadcast
with the video from a sports event. The settings range from 0 to 500 milliseconds in 5
ms increments.
Like the speaker settings, this is a temporary
adjustment that overrides the permanent default setting for a video source until a different input source is selected or the unit is
turned off.
To adjust group delay using the remote:
1. Press the C button on the remote twice.
2. Use the UP or DOWN buttons on the remote to adjust the amount of delay applied to all channels.
Dynamic Range
Dolby Digital recordings are capable of wide
dynamic range (the difference between the
softest and loudest sounds). In some cases,
this may tax amplifiers and/or speakers. In
other cases, you may want to reduce the dynamic range when listening at low volume
levels. This is particularly useful in order to
keep dialog loud enough to be intelligible
while avoiding excessively loud sound effects. Dolby Digital dynamic compensation
is a sophisticated feature that allows you to
adjust the dynamic range while still preserv-

ing fidelity. The actual amount of compression relies on instructions embedded in the
Dolby Digital recording and varies to best
suit the specific program content.
There are three dynamic range settings available for Dolby Digital recordings:
• MAX: full dynamic range.
• MID: slightly reduced dynamic range,
roughly comparable to the signal from a
compact disc.
• MIN: more heavily reduced dynamic
range, but still comparable to the signal
from a typical VHS Hi-Fi recording.
To adjust dynamic range:
Press the DYN button on the remote repeatedly until the desired setting appears in the
front panel display. This setting remains in
effect for all Dolby Digital program material
until it is changed.
NOTE :
The dynamic range compensation feature is only available in Dolby Digital mode.
The setting is ignored with all other types of
recordings.
Contour/Tone Settings
The contour controls (available on the remote
control) can be used to make a temporary
change the high or low frequency content at
the frequency extremes. Adjustments to the
contour settings are temporary; they remain
in effect only until a different source input is
selected or the unit is turned off. Permanent
settings can be made using the Contour
Setup menu.
The settings can be adjusted up or down by
a maximum of 6dB. Changing the high frequency contour (HF) increases or decreases the treble. Changing the low frequency
contour (LF) increases or decreases the bass
content. The changes affect only the speaker or speaker(s) selected for adjustment in
the Contour Setup menu. The settings are
shown on the front panel display as you
adjust them.
To adjust the contour settings from
the remote:
1. Press the TONE button on the remote.
Either LF or HF appears in the OSD and
front panel displays, depending on which
adjustment is currently active. Press the
TONE button again to toggle to the other
adjustment.
2. Press the UP/DOWN buttons on the remote to increase or decrease the setting.
The display will revert to normal operation
following several seconds of inactivity.
NOTE : The tone adjustments are available for
all surround modes and inputs, except the
MULTI input and analog bypass mode.
Cinema EQ
The EQ button (remote only) activates or deactivates a special CINEMA EQ setting. This
equalization may be desirable for playback of
movie source material to compensate for the
acoustic differences between a commercial
cinema and a home theater environment by
reducing the high-frequency content.
The EQ setting is independent for each source
input. Using the button only changes the setting for the currently active source input.
Tuner Controls
The RSX-1057 features a digital synthesized
AM/FM tuner with RDS capability and 30
station presets. The unit offers a wide range
of tuning options. Here is an overview of
the tuning options (more detailed information is provided in subsequent sections of

The TUNING buttons (labeled CH UP/DOWN
on the remote control) provide three different tuning functions, depending on the mode
of operation.
RSX-1057 Surround Sound Receiver
In the normal FREQUENCY tuning mode,
press a TUNING button (CH UP/DOWN on
the remote) and release to manually jump
to the next station frequency, regardless of
whether or not a station is broadcasting on
that frequency. For auto frequency search
tuning, press and hold the TUNING button
for approximately one second. An AUTO
indicator will appear in the front-panel display and the tuner will begin scanning up or
down through the frequencies until the next
available signal is detected. If this is not the

RDS and RBDS Tuning
The Rotel RSX-1057 is equipped with RDS
(Radio Data Systems) reception capabilities
for Europe and RBDS (Radio Broadcast Data
Service) capabilities for the United States.
These broadcast systems provide additional
functionality to FM radio reception by transmitting encoded information along with the
radio signal. This signal is decoded by an RDS
or RBDS receiver and can provide a range
of informational features including:
1. a display of the station’s identifying name
(e.g. BBC1)
2. a display of the station’s program content
(e.g. ROCK or NEWS)
3. traffic information broadcasts
4. a scrolling text display for announcements
or information
In addition, RDS provides several advanced
search features including:
1. Search for a station with the desired program content (PTY)
2. Search for traffic information (TP)
3. Search for stations broadcasting special
traffic announcements (TA).
RDS broadcasting has been widely available
in many European markets for years. There
are a large number of RDS stations and most
users will be familiar with the features and
operation. In the USA, implementation of
the RBDS system is more recent. Fewer stations are broadcasting RBDS signals and the
features may be less familiar to many users.
Consult your authorized Rotel dealer for more
information on RDS or RBDS broadcasting
in your area.
NOTE : The RDS and RBDS features are entirely dependent on the broadcaster sending encoded signals. Thus, they will only be
available in markets where RDS or RBDS is
implemented and where stations are broadcasting these data signals. If there are no RDS
or RBDS stations, the RSX-1057 will function
as a standard radio receiver.
NOTE :
RDS and RBDS services are only available on FM broadcasts. The features and buttons described below are only operational
in FM mode.
DISP Button
There are five display options when the currently tuned station is broadcasting RDS information and the RDS indicator in the frontpanel display is lit. Press the DISP button on
the remote to step through the five display
options:
1. Standard FREQUENCY display.
2. PROGRAM SERVICE name. This is typically the station’s call letters, such as BBC1.
If the current station is not broadcasting
an RDS signal, the display will show “NO
NAME DATA”.
3. PROGRAM TYPE. This is a description of
the station’s content from a standardized
list of program types in each market. If
the current station is not broadcasting an
RDS signal, the display will show “NO
PTY DATA”.
4. CLOCK TIME. A time and date display
broadcast by the station. If the current station is not broadcasting an RDS signal,
the display will show “NO TIME DATA”.
5. RADIO TEXT. Additional scrolling text
messages broadcast by the station. If the
current station is broadcasting radio text
data, an RT indicator lights in the display
and the scrolling text appears. If the current station is not broadcasting an RDS
signal, the display will show “NO TEXT
DATA”.
PTY Button
The PTY search function permits you to
scan available broadcasts for RDS stations
broadcasting a particular type of program
content.
1. Press the PTY button. The current RDS program type will appear in the display.
2. If desired, change to a different PROGRAM
TYPE using the TUNING UP/DOWN buttons to scroll through the list.
3. Press the PTY button a second time within
10 seconds. The tuner will attempt to find
an RDS station broadcasting the selected type of program. If the button is not
pressed within 10 seconds after selecting
a program type, the PTY function will be
cancelled.
4. If no station is located for the desired content type, the tuner will return to the last
previously tuned station.
5. Cancel the PTY function by pressing any
other button.
NOTE : If the currently tuned station is broadcasting PTY data, a PTY indicator lights in the
front-panel display.

RSX-1057 Surround Sound Receiver
Zone 2 Operation
The RSX-1057 provides Zone 2 multi-room
capability, allowing you to enjoy music and
operate the system from a second room.
From the remote location, you can select a
source component (independent from the
source playing in the main room), adjust the
volume level in the remote zone, and operate the source components.
To use the Zone 2 capability, you need additional components: a pair of speakers installed
in the remote zone, an amplifier to drive them,
an optional TV monitor for video signals, and
a third-party IR repeater system.
Zone 2 can be controlled from the main room
using RSX-1057’s front panel or remote control ZONE button. Operation from the remote
zone requires the installation of an infrared
repeater system (Xantech, Niles, etc.) which
relays infrared remote control commands
from Zone 2 to the ZONE REM IN connector on the back of the RSX-1057.
Several points to keep in mind about the
Zone 2 function:
• There are two options for the Zone 2 output
level, selectable from the OSD configuration menu. VARIABLE output provides full
adjustment of the volume level. FIXED output
disables the Zone 2 volume control with the
output permanently set to a specified level.
This might be useful for sending a line level
signal to a preamp or integrated amp with
its own volume control or to a distribution
amplifier with multiple volume controls.
• The RR-1060 remote control supplied with
the RSX-1057 will operate Zone 2 if used
with a repeater system from the remote
zone. It can also be programmed to operate Rotel source components via the
RSX-1057’s IR OUT jack.
• Any source component connected to the
RSX-1057’s analog inputs can be sent to
the Zone 2 outputs. ZONE 2 operates independently of the main room. You can
select a different source or adjust Zone 2
volume without affecting the MAIN outputs in any way.
• Avoid sending the same infrared command
to the RSX-1057 front panel sensor and a
Zone 2 repeater at the same time. This
means that Zone 2 must be in a different room from the RSX-1057.
36
Zone 2 Power On/Off
To change the Zone 2 input source:
Once master power is applied to the unit by
pressing the rear panel POWER switch button,
the RSX-1057 provides independent power
on/off operation for both zones. Pressing the
remote control ON/OFF buttons in the main
room activates or deactivates the RSX-1057
in the main room only and has no effect on
Zone 2. Conversely, activating or deactivating Zone 2 has no effect on the main listening
room. However, placing the rear panel master
POWER switch in the OFF position completely
shuts off the unit, for both zones.
1. Press the front panel or remote ZONE button. Zone 2 status appears in the OSD
and front panel displays.
NOTE : For proper power on and off operation
with Zone 2, the RSX-1057’s power mode
should be set to the factory default STANDBY setting or to the DIRECT setting using the
Other Options menu described in the Setup
section of this manual.
Controlling Zone 2
from the Main Room
You can control Zone 2 from the main room
using front panel or remote control buttons to
activate or deactivate Zone 2, change input
sources, and adjust the volume. Controlling
Zone 2 from the main room is accomplished
by pressing the ZONE button on the front
panel or remote, putting the RSX-1057 in
Zone 2 control mode temporarily. When the
Zone 2 status is displayed, the OSD and/or
front panel displays show the current source
selection and volume in Zone 2 for ten seconds, during which time you can use the front
panel VOLUME control and INPUT buttons
to change the ZONE 2 settings.
To turn Zone 2 on or off:
1. Press the front panel or remote ZONE button. Zone 2 status appears in the OSD
and front panel displays.
2. Within 10 seconds, press the front panel
or remote ZONE button to toggle Zone
2 on or off.
3. Following 10 seconds with no commands,
the RSX-1057 reverts to normal operation.
2. Within 10 seconds, press one of the INPUT
buttons to select a new source for Zone
2. The name of the selected source appears in the display. Instead of pressing
an INPUT button, you can also push the
+/– buttons on the remote to step through
the inputs.
3. Following 10 seconds with no commands,
the RSX-1057 reverts to normal operation.
To change the Zone 2 volume:
1. Press the front panel or remote ZONE button. Zone 2 status appears in the OSD
and front panel displays.
2. Within 10 seconds, adjust the volume
control on the front panel or remote to
change the Zone 2 output level. The new
setting appears in the display.
3. Following 10 seconds with no commands,
the RSX-1057 reverts to normal operation.
Controlling Zone 2 from the
Remote Location
With a properly configured IR repeater system, you have full control of Zone 2 using an
RR-1060 remote from the Zone 2 location. You
can select and operate a source, adjust the
volume, and turn Zone 2 on or off. Whatever
commands you send from the RR-1060 will
change Zone 2 and only Zone 2, just as if you
were controlling a totally independent audio
system in that room. These changes will have
no effect on the main listening room.
To turn Zone 2 on or off, press the ON/OFF
buttons on the remote. To adjust the volume in
Zone 2, press the VOLUME buttons on the remote. To select a different analog input source,
press one of the DEVICE/INPUT buttons on
the remote. You can also use the +/– buttons
to step through the source inputs.
NOTE :
The volume adjustment is only available if the Zone 2 outputs are configured to
use VARIABLE levels. With FIXED levels, the
volume control for Zone 2 is disabled.

SETUP
The RSX-1057 features two types of information displays to help operate the system.
The first consists of simple status displays that
appear on the TV screen and/or front panel
display whenever primary settings (Volume,
Input, etc.) are changed. These status displays
are self-explanatory.
A more comprehensive ON-SCREEN DISPLAY (OSD) menu system is available at any
time by pressing the MENU/OSD button on
the remote. These OSD menus guide you
through the configuration and setup of the
RSX-1057. In general, the settings made in
the configuration process are memorized as
default settings and need not be made again
for normal operation of the unit.
The OSD menus can be configured to display several different languages. The default
English version of all the menus is shown at
the front of this manual. If your language is
available, those menus will be shown in the
following instructions. If you would like to
change from the default English language
before proceeding, go to the instructions
for the OTHER OPTIONS menu later in this
manual. From this menu, you can change the
language display.

RSX-1057 Surround Sound Receiver
Configuring Inputs
A key step in setting up the RSX-1057 is to
configure each source input using the INPUT
SETUP screens. Configuring the inputs allows
you to set defaults for a number of settings
including the type of input connector, the
desired surround mode, custom labels that
appear in the displays when a source is selected, and many more. The following OSD
menus are used to configure the inputs.
Input Setup
INPUT SETUP
LISTEN:CD
VID INPUT:Video 1
INPUT LABEL:_______
INPUT:Coaxial 2
CINEMA EQ:Off
12V TRIGGER:1
DEFAULT MODE:Dolby 3 Stereo
GROUP DELAY:200ms
MAIN MENU
The INPUT SETUP menu configures the source
inputs and is reached from the MAIN menu.
The screen provides the following options, selected by placing the highlight on the desired
line using the UP/DOWN buttons:
LISTEN: changes the current listening input
source (CD, TUNER, TAPE, VIDEO 1–5, &
MULTI INPUT). Changing this input also allows you to select a specific input for configuring.
VID INPUT: select the video source to be
displayed on the TV monitor with the listening source specified on the first line. Can be
VIDEO 1–5 or OFF (no video). Typically, the
video source matches the audio from listening source; however a different video input
can be selected. For audio only sources (such
as a CD player), you would typically specify
OFF so that no video is displayed.
INPUT LABEL: The eight character labels
for the all eight inputs can be customized.
Place the highlight on this line to begin labelling. The first character in the label will
be flashing.
1. Press the +/– buttons on the remote to
change the first letter, scrolling through
the list of available characters.
2. Press the ENT button on the remote to
confirm that letter and move to the next
position.
38
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until all eight characters (including blank spaces) have been
completed. The final press of the ENT button saves the new label.
INPUT: assigns a physical input connection
to use as the default for the source displayed
in the first line of the menu. The options are
ANALOG input, two OPTICAL digital inputs
(OPTICAL 1–2), and three COAXIAL digital
inputs (COAXIAL 1–3).
When a digital input is the default, the unit
will check for a digital signal when the INPUT SOURCE is selected. If no digital signal
is present, the unit will automatically revert
to the analog input.
When an ANALOG input is the default, the
unit will not access a digital signal, even
though one may be present at the digital input; thus, the ANALOG setting forces the unit
to use an analog signal. Assigning a digital
input (with its auto-sensing) is generally the
preferred configuration for any source with
a digital output.
NOTE : If a source connected to a digital input
is selected, that signal will automatically be
sent to both digital outputs for recording.
CINEMA EQ: The RSX-1057 includes a CINEMA EQ feature which reduces the high-frequency content of movie soundtracks to simulate the frequency response of a large movie
theater and/or eliminate sibilance. You can
turn the CINEMA EQ on or off as the default
setting for the selected input using this menu
choice. In general, this setting should be OFF
for most source inputs, unless you are consistently bothered by excessively bright sound
from movie soundtracks.
12V TRIGGER: The RSX-1057 has three 12V
trigger outputs (labeled 1, 2, and ZONE2)
that supply a 12V DC signal to turn on Rotel components and other components as
needed. This menu item turns on specific
12V trigger outputs whenever the indicated
source is selected. For example, set up the
VIDEO 1 input to turn on the 12V trigger for
your DVD player. The options for this menu
item are: 1, 2, zone, 1+2, 1+zone, 2+zone,
ALL, and No.
DEFAULT MODE: The DEFAULT MODE
setting allows you to set a default surround
sound mode for each source input. The default setting will be used unless the source
material triggers automatic decoding of a
particular type or unless the default setting
is temporarily overridden by the front panel
or remote surround mode buttons.
NOTE :
Default surround modes are stored independently for the analog and digital inputs
for each source.
Options for the default surround modes are:
Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby 3 Stereo, Music 1,
Music 2, Music 3, Music 4, 5ch Stereo, 7ch
Stereo, PCM 2 Channel, DTS Neo:6, Bypass
(for analog input only), and Stereo.
NOTE :
The following types of digital discs
or source material are generally detected
automatically and the proper decoding activated with no action or setting required:
DTS, DTS-ES Matrix 6.1, DTS-ES Discrete 6.1,
Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Surround EX,
Dolby Digital 2-channel, MPEG Multichannel,
PCM 2-Channel, PCM 96kHz, MP3, HDCD,
and HDCD 96kHz.
Since Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS sources are
detected and decoded automatically, the
default setting typically tells the RSX-1057
how to process a 2-channel stereo signal.
For example, you might have your CD input
default to 2-channel stereo, DVD and VCR
inputs default to Dolby Pro Logic II processing for matrix-encoded Dolby surround material, and TUNER input default to one of the
MUSIC modes.
In some cases, the default setting can be
manually overridden by the front panel surround mode buttons or the SUR+ button
on the remote. See the Manually Selecting
Surround Modes section of this manual for
more information on which settings can be
overridden.
Two of the default surround mode settings
available on this menu offer additional
choices. Dolby Pro Logic II decoding offers
a choice of CINEMA or MUSIC settings. DTS
Neo:6 decoding offers a choice of CINEMA
or MUSIC settings. When either Dolby Pro
Logic II or DTS Neo:6 is selected with this
menu item, the current setting choice will
also be displayed. In addition, the function
of the ENTER button changes, taking you to
a sub-menu where you can change the settings and/or additional parameters for Dolby
Pro Logic II or DTS Neo:6 decoding. See the
following section for details.
39
GROUP DELAY: Also known as “lip-sync”
delay, this setting delays the audio signal for
an input by the specified amount to match
the video input. This feature can be useful
when the video signal is delayed more than
the audio signal as sometimes happens with
upconverted digital TV processors or when
trying to match a radio broadcast with the
video from a sports event.
The range of available settings is from 0ms
to 500ms, in 5ms increments. The setting is
individually stored for each input and is the
default group delay each time that input is
selected. The setting can be temporarily overridden from the front panel or the remote.
OPTIONS: This selection is only visible when
Pro Logic II or Neo:6 surround mode is selected. Highlight this line and press ENTER to
go to submenus with additional options for
these surround modes. See below.
To return to the MAIN menu from the INPUT
SETUP menu (except when Dolby Pro Logic II or DTS Neo:6 is selected in the SURR
MODE field), press the ENTER button. Press
the MENU/OSD button on the remote to
cancel the menu display and return to normal operation.

MAIN MENU
When the MULTI INPUT source is selected
on the INPUT SETUP menu, the available
options change to reflect the fact that these
inputs are direct analog inputs and bypass
the RSX-1057’s digital processing. The INPUT,
CINEMA EQ, and DEFAULT MODE options
are not available since these are all digitally
implemented features.
The VID INPUT, INPUT LABEL, and 12V TRIGGER options are still available and work as
described on the previous menu.
One additional option, LFE REDIRECT, provides an alternative bass management configuration. Typically, the eight channels of the
MULTI INPUT are configured as pure analog
bypass signals, going straight from the inputs
to the volume control and the preamp outputs,
bypassing all of the digital processing. There
are no crossovers and no bass management;
therefore, whatever signal goes into the subwoofer channel will be sent to the subwoofer
preamp output.
This configuration may not be ideal for multichannel systems configured with high-pass
speakers, redirecting bass to a powered
subwoofer. An option, called LFE REDIRECT,
sends the seven main channels directly to
the outputs as usual. In addition, it takes
a duplicate copy of these seven channels,
combines them into mono, and routes them
through a 100 Hz analog low-pass crossover to the subwoofer preamp output. This
creates a summed mono subwoofer signal,
derived from the seven main channels of the
MULTI INPUT.
Use the LFE REDIRECT off for the pure analog bypass configuration. Use the LFE REDIRECT on setting to derive the mono summed
subwoofer output.

When Dolby Pro Logic IIx is selected as the
default surround mode on the INPUT SETUP
menu, there are additional settings and parameters to optimize the surround decoding
for music or movie soundtracks. Dolby Pro
Logic II uses matrix decoding algorithms to
derive a center channel and surround channels from 2-channel source material.
The first line of the Dolby Pro Logic IIx submenu selects CINEMA, MUSIC, GAME, or
PRO LOGIC modes for matrix decoding.
Use the +/– buttons on the remote to select
a mode.
Select CINEMA to optimize for Dolby Surround encoded movie soundtracks including increased surround separation and fullbandwidth surround channel frequency response.
English
Select MUSIC to optimize for musical recordings. When the MUSIC mode is selected, three
additional parameters will be available on
the OSD screen. Use the UP/DOWN buttons
on the remote to select a parameter. Use the
+/– buttons to change the selected parameter as follows:
• PANORAMA: The Panorama option extends the front stereo image to include the
surround speakers for a dramatic “wraparound” effect. The options are OFF or
ON.
• DIMENSION: The Dimension option allows you to gradually adjust the soundfield towards the front or towards the rear.
There are seven incremental settings from
0 to 6. A setting of 0 shifts the soundfield
towards the rear for maximum surround effect. A setting of 6 shifts the soundfield to
the front for minimum surround effect. The
default setting of 3 provides a “neutral”
balance between the two extremes.
• CENTER WIDTH: The Center Width option allows you to spread the signal intended for the center speaker to the left
and right front speakers, widening the
perceived soundfield. There are eight incremental settings from 0 to 7. With the
default setting of 0, there is no center width
spreading and all of the center channel
information is sent to the center speaker.
The maximum setting of 7 shifts all of the
center channel signal to the left and right
speakers, essentially muting the center
speaker and maximizing the soundfield
width. Other settings provide incremental
steps between the two extremes.
Select GAME to optimize for Dolby Surround
encoded video games.
Select PRO LOGIC for original Dolby Pro
Logic decoding. Typically, Pro Logic II (Cinema or Music modes) will provide better surround performance, even with older source
material. Original Pro Logic mode provides
5.1 channel surround sound, even on 6.1/7.1
channel systems.

Configuring
Speakers and Audio
This section of the setup process covers items
concerning audio reproduction such as the
number of speakers, bass management including subwoofer crossovers, establishing
equal output levels for all channels, delay
settings, and tone contour settings.
Understanding Speaker Configuration
Home theater systems vary in the number of
speakers and the bass capabilities of those
speakers. The RSX-1057 offers surround modes
tailored to systems with various numbers of
speakers and bass management features which
send bass information to the speaker(s) best
40
able to handle it – subwoofers and/or large
speakers. For optimum performance, you
must tell the RSX-1057 the number of speakers in your system and how bass should be
distributed among them.
NOTE: There are two types of bass in a surround system. The first is bass recorded in
each of the main channels (front, center, and
surround). This bass is present in all recordings
and soundtracks. In addition, Dolby Digital
5.1 and DTS 5.1 recordings may have a Low
Frequency Effects (LFE) channel – the .1 channel. This LFE channel, typically played by a
subwoofer, is used for effects such as explosions or rumble. The use of the LFE channel will
vary from soundtrack to soundtrack. Recordings that are not encoded in Dolby Digital or
DTS do not have the LFE channel.
The following configuration instructions refer
to LARGE and SMALL speakers, referring more
to their desired bass configuration than their
physical size. Specifically, use the LARGE setting for speakers that you want to play deep
bass signals. Use the SMALL designation for
speakers that would benefit from having their
bass sent to more capable speakers. The bass
management system redirects bass information
away from all SMALL speakers and sends it to
the LARGE speakers and/or the SUBWOOFER.
It may be useful to think of LARGE as “full-range”
and SMALL as “high-pass filtered.”
Four typical examples of the many possible
system configurations illustrate the principles
behind bass management:
• Five LARGE speakers and subwoofer: This system requires no bass
redirection. All five speakers play the
normal bass recorded in their respective
channels. The subwoofer plays only
the LFE channel bass. Depending on the
soundtrack, there may be minimal use of
the LFE channel, so the subwoofer would
be under utilized. Meanwhile the normal
bass places higher demands on the capabilities of the other speakers and the
amplifiers driving them.
• LARGE front, center, surround
speakers, no subwoofer. The normal bass from the front, center, and surround channels is played in its respective
speakers. With no subwoofer, the LFE bass
is redirected to all five LARGE speakers.
This places significant demands on these
speakers and their amplifiers, as they must
play their own normal bass plus the very
demanding LFE bass.
• All SMALL speakers and subwoofer. The normal bass from all channels is
redirected to the subwoofer, which also
plays the LFE channel. The subwoofer
handles ALL of the bass in the system.
This configuration provides several benefits: deep bass is played by the speaker
most suited to do so, the main speakers
may play louder with less distortion, and
the need for amplifier power is reduced.
This configuration should be used with
bookshelf-size or smaller main speakers. It should also be considered in some
cases with floorstanding front speakers.
This configuration is advantageous when
driving the system with moderate power
amplifiers.
• LARGE front speakers, SMALL center and surround speakers, and a
subwoofer. The normal bass from the
SMALL center and surround speakers is redirected to the LARGE front speakers and
the subwoofer. The LARGE front speakers
play their own normal bass plus the redirected bass from the SMALL speakers and
LFE bass. The subwoofer plays the LFE bass
plus the redirected bass from all of the other channels. This might be an appropriate
configuration with a pair of very capable
front speakers driven by a large power
amplifier. A potential disadvantage with
mixed LARGE and SMALL configurations is
that the bass response may not be as consistent from channel to channel as it might
be with the all SMALL configuration.
NOTE : As an alternative configuration with
a satellite/subwoofer package as the front
speakers, follow the speaker manufacturer’s
instructions, connecting the high-level inputs
of the powered subwoofer directly to the front
speaker outputs of the RSX-1057 and connecting the satellites to the subwoofer’s own
crossover. In this arrangement, the speakers
would be classified as LARGE and the subwoofer setting would be OFF for all surround
modes. No information is lost during playback
because the system redirects bass information to the front LARGE speakers. While this
configuration ensures proper satellite speaker
operation by using the speaker’s own crossovers, it has some disadvantages in terms of
system calibration and would generally not
be the preferred configuration.

MAIN MENU
The SPEAKER SETUP menu is used to configure the RSX-1057 for use with your specific loudspeakers and to determine the bass
management configuration as described in
the previous overview. The menu is accessed
from the MAIN menu.
The following speaker options are available:
FRONT SPEAKERS (small/large): Use
the LARGE setting to have the front speakers
play low bass (full-range). Use the SMALL
setting to redirect normal bass away from
these speakers to a subwoofer (high-pass
filtered).
CENTER SPEAKER(S) (large/small/
none): Use the LARGE position (not available with SMALL front speakers) to have the
center speaker play low bass (full-range).
Use the SMALL position if your center channel speaker has limited low frequency capability, or if you prefer that the bass be sent to
the subwoofer (high-pass). Select the NONE
setting if your system does not have a center
channel speaker (the surround modes will automatically divide all center channel information equally between the two front speakers,
creating a phantom center channel).
SURROUND SPEAKERS (large/small/
none): Select the LARGE setting (not available with SMALL front speakers) to have the
surround speakers play low bass (full-range).
If your rear speakers have limited bass capability or if you would prefer that the bass go
to a subwoofer, use the SMALL setting (highpass). If your system has no rear surround
speakers, select the NONE setting (surround
channels are added to the front speakers so
none of the recording is lost).
CENTER BACK SPEAKER(S) (large1/
large2/small1/small2/none): Some systems have one or two additional center back
surround speakers. Select the LARGE settings
(not available with SMALL front speakers) to
have your center back speaker(s) play low
bass. Use LARGE 1 if you have one center
back speaker (6.1) or LARGE 2 (7.1) if you
have two center back speakers (7.1). If your
center back speakers have limited bass capability or if you would prefer that the bass
go to a subwoofer, use the SMALL setting
(SMALL1 for one speaker, SMALL2 for two
speakers). If your system has no center back
speakers, select the NONE setting. With
center back speakers, the Rotel XS eXtended
surround, Dolby Digital EX, DTS-ES, Dolby
Pro Logic II, DTS Neo:6 or other decoders
will provide center back signals for any surround mode.
SUBWOOFER (yes/no/max): The YES setting is the standard setting if your system has
a subwoofer. If your system does not have a
subwoofer, select NO. Select the MAX setting
for maximum bass output with normal bass
being duplicated by both the subwoofer and
any LARGE speakers in the system.
ADVANCED: Speaker configuration is generally a global setting for all surround modes
and need only be done once. However, for
special circumstances, the RSX-1057 provides
the option of setting the speaker configuration independently for each of four surround
modes. Select the ADVANCED line on the
menu and press ENTER to go to the ADVANCED SPEAKER SETUP menu described
in the following section.
To change a setting on the SPEAKER SETUP
menu, place the highlight on the desired line
using the UP/DOWN buttons and use the
+/– buttons to toggle through the available
settings. To return to the MAIN menu, press
the ENTER button. Press the MENU/OSD button on the remote to cancel the display and
return to normal operation.

SPEAKER SETUP MENU
In most cases, the standard speaker configuration described above is a global setting
and can be used for all surround modes.
However, the RSX-1057 provides the capability to customize these settings for four different surround modes: Dolby, DTS, Stereo,
and Music. For example, you could set up
the Dolby and DTS modes for 5.1 channel
sound, while the Stereo mode changes to a
2-speaker setup with or without a subwoofer.
In addition, the ADVANCED SPEAKER SETUP
allows you to select a customized high-pass
crossover frequency for the front, center, surround, and surround back speakers.
NOTE : In most systems, the default settings on
this menu will provide the most predictable
results and most users will not need to change
any settings. You should fully understand bass
management and have a specific reason for
needing a custom configuration before changing these settings. Otherwise, skip to the following topic, SUBWOOFER SETUP.
The available settings on the ADVANCED
SPEAKER SETUP menu are as follows:
SPEAKER (front/center/surround/
center back/subwoofer): Select the
set of speakers to be configured with custom settings.
CROSSOVER (40Hz/60Hz/80Hz/
100Hz/120Hz/150Hz/200Hz): Typically, the RSX-1057 uses a single master setting for the high-pass and low-pass crossover point between all SMALL speakers and
the subwoofer. This master crossover point
is set on the SUBWOOFER SETUP menu
described in the following section. When
you first access the ADVANCED SPEAKER
SETUP menu, the current master crossover
point will be shown on this line. Change the
value of this line only if you want the current
speaker to have a different crossover point.
For example, if your master crossover is set
to 80Hz, but you want your front speakers
to crossover to the subwoofer at 60 Hz, you
RSX-1057 Surround Sound Receiver
would select 60Hz for the front speakers on
this line. This setting ONLY affects redirected
bass and does not affect the LFE channel in
any way. The OFF setting (available only for
the subwoofer) sends a full-range signal to
your subwoofer so that you can use its builtin low-pass filter.
NOTE : When a speaker is set to LARGE on
the SPEAKER SETUP menu or on this MENU,
the crossover setting is not available since, by
definition, a LARGE speaker plays full-range
with no bass redirection to the subwoofer and
no crossover. Likewise, the OFF setting for
the subwoofer crossover is not available for
SMALL speakers, since SMALL means that the
speaker will redirect its bass below a given
crossover point to the subwoofer. In addition,
the CROSSOVER setting is not available for
the MULTI INPUT.
DOLBY (large/small/none): Sets the current speaker (shown in the first line) to LARGE,
SMALL, or NONE, overriding the master setting from the SPEAKER SETUP menu. This setting will ONLY take effect with Dolby Digital
or Dolby Pro Logic II decoding.
DTS (large/small/none): The same options described for Dolby above, except these
settings ONLY take effect with DTS and DTS
Neo:6 decoding.
STEREO/MPEG (large/small/none):
The same options described for Dolby above,
except these settings ONLY take effect in STEREO surround mode.
MUSIC (large/small/none): The same
options described for Dolby above, except
these settings ONLY take effect with any of
the DSP MUSIC surround modes.
NOTE : When the front speakers are set to use
the master crossover frequency on the ADVANCED SPEAKER SETUP menu, the surround
mode specific “large/small/none” settings are
not available for the other speakers. These
speakers will use the setting determined in
the basic SPEAKER SETUP menu.

CROSSOVER (40Hz/60Hz/80Hz/100Hz/
120Hz/150Hz/200Hz/OFF): This setting
specifies a master low-pass filter for the subwoofer and a corresponding high-pass filter
for all SMALL speakers in the system at the
selected frequency. To adjust the crossover
frequency, highlight the CROSSOVER line
using the UP/DOWN buttons. Then, use the
+/– buttons to choose the master crossover
point. The 80Hz or 100Hz crossover points
are the most common in home theater systems
and should be used unless you have a specific
reason to choose a different crossover point
based on your specific speakers.
The OFF setting sends a full-range signal to
your subwoofer so that you can use its built-in
low-pass filter. With the OFF setting, a 100
Hz high-pass filter is activated for all SMALL
speakers in the system.
NOTE:
The master crossover point can be overridden with a custom crossover frequency for
the front, center, surround, or surround back
speakers in the ADVANCED SPEAKER SETUP

These six lines allow you to override the master subwoofer level setting as determined on
the TEST TONE menu (see below) for each
specific surround mode. When going to the
SUBWOOFER SETUP menu from the MAIN
menu, the current surround mode is automatically highlighted. Use the +/– buttons
to adjust the subwoofer level for the current
surround mode. The options are OFF (which
turns off the subwoofer for that mode) and a
range of adjustments from -9dB to +9dB and
MAX (+10dB). A setting of 0dB means that
the specified surround mode will use the master subwoofer level. Any other setting is an
offset to the master setting. For example, an
adjustment of -2db for a particular surround
mode means that the subwoofer level will
be 2dB quieter than the master subwoofer
level when that surround mode is selected.
Use these subwoofer level settings to adjust
the relative bass output of various surround
modes. Changing the master subwoofer level will increase or decrease the level for all
surround modes.
NOTE:
Only the current surround mode can be
adjusted on this menu. You will need to change
surround modes using the front panel or remote
buttons to adjust a different mode.
We recommend starting with the settings for
all surround modes at the default 0dB setting
during the test tone calibration of the system
and for a period of familiarization after that.
As you listen to a variety of source material
over time, you may notice that certain surround modes consistently produce too much
or too little bass from the subwoofer. If so,
then use these menu settings to customize
each surround mode. In general, if the master
subwoofer level is set properly (i.e. not too
loud), individual settings for each surround
mode should not be necessary.
NOTE: In Dolby Digital and DTS recordings, the
LFE channel is used to produce spectacular
low bass effects, placing considerable demands on your subwoofer system. If you hear
distortion or other signs of distress from your
subwoofer at loud listening levels, you may
consider reducing the subwoofer level for the
Dolby Digital and/or DTS surround modes. In
other surround modes, there is no LFE channel
and the subwoofer will only reproduce redirected bass from the other channels, which
is not as likely to tax the subwoofer.

MAIN MENU
This menu uses filtered pink noise test tones
to set equal volume levels for all speakers
(left front, center, right front, right surround,
center back, left surround, and subwoofer) to
ensure proper surround sound reproduction.
Setting the output levels using the test procedure provides the most accurate adjustment
so that digital surround sound material will
be reproduced as it was intended and is a
critical step in calibrating the system.
NOTE:
If you have configured your system to
use two center back speakers, there will be
an additional line in the menu, giving you the
ability to independently adjust the CENTER
BACK 1 and CENTER BACK 2 speakers.
To access this menu and perform the test
tone calibration, you can be in any surround
mode except BYPASS with any input except
the MULTI INPUT. Enter the OSD menu system and select TEST TONE from the MAIN
MENU to reach this screen.
When you enter the TEST TONE menu, you
will hear a test tone coming from the highlighted speaker. Highlight different speakers
by moving the cursor to the desired line using
the UP/DOWN buttons. The test tone will shift
accordingly to the selected speaker.
Seated in the normal listening location, shift
the test tone to the various speakers. Using
the one speaker as a reference, listen for any
speakers that are noticeably louder or quieter. If so, adjust that speaker’s levels up or
down (in 1dB increments) using the +/– buttons. Continue switching among the speakers and adjusting until all speakers are the
same volume.
To return to the MAIN menu, press the ENTER button. Press the MENU/OSD button on
the remote to cancel the menu display and
return to normal operation.
Calibration with an SPL meter:
Calibrating the system with an SPL meter,
rather than by ear, provides more precise
results and improves the system’s performance significantly. Inexpensive SPL meters
are widely available and the procedure is
quick and easy.
Both Dolby and DTS specify a standard calibration level for all theaters to ensure that
soundtracks can be played at the volume level
intended by the director of the film. This reference level should result in spoken dialog
played at a realistic level for normal speech
with the loudest peaks in any single channel
at about 105dB. The RSX-1057’s test tones
are generated at a precise level (-30dBFs)
relative to the loudest possible digitally recorded sound. At the Dolby or DTS reference
level, these test tones should produce a 75dB
reading on an SPL meter.
Set the meter to its 70dB dial setting with SLOW
response and C-weighting, held away from
your body at your listening position (mounting the SPL meter on a camera tripod makes
this easier). You can point the SPL meter at
each speaker as it is being measured; however, positioning the meter in a fixed position
pointing at the ceiling is easier and probably
produces more consistent results.
Increase the master volume control on the
RSX-1057 until the meter reads 75dB (+5dB
on the meter scale) when playing the test tone
through one of the front speakers. Then, use
the individual channel adjustments on the
TEST TONE menu to adjust each of the individual speakers, including the subwoofer, to
the same 75dB on the SPL meter.
NOTE:
Due to meter weighting curves and
room effects, the actual level of the subwoofer
may be slightly higher than you measure. To
compensate, Dolby suggests setting the subwoofer several dB lower when calibrating
with an SPL meter (i.e. set the subwoofer to
read 72dB on the meter instead of 75dB).
Ultimately, the proper subwoofer level must
be determined by personal taste and some
listeners prefer to set it above 75dB for film
soundtracks. Exaggerated bass effects come
at the expense of proper blending with the
main speakers and place stress on the subwoofer and its amplifier. If you can localize
bass from the subwoofer, the subwoofer level
may be too high. Music can be useful for
fine-tuning the subwoofer level as excessive
bass is readily apparent. The proper setting
will generally work well for music and movie
soundtracks.
Remember the setting of the master volume
control used during this calibration. To play
a Dolby Digital or DTS soundtrack at the reference volume level, simply return to that volume setting. Note that most home theater listeners find this setting to be excessively loud.
Let your own ears be the judge for deciding
how loud to playback movie soundtracks and
adjust the master volume control accordingly. Regardless of your listening levels, using
an SPL meter to calibrate equal levels for all
speakers in the system is recommended.

delay for individual speakers. This ensures
that the sound from each speaker arrives simultaneously at the listening position, even
when the speakers are not all placed at equal
distances from the listener. Increase the delay
to speakers located closer to the seating area
and decrease the delay to speakers located
farther from the seating area.
The RSX-1057 makes setting the delay time for
each speaker very easy. Simply measure the
distance (in feet or meters) from your seating
position to each speaker in your system. Set
the measured distance in the line for each
speaker. The menu provides a line for each
speaker configured in your system and provides a range of settings up to 99 feet (30
meters) in 1 foot (0.3 m) increments with
each increment equivalent to an additional
delay of 1ms.
To change a setting, place the highlight on

For example, if your center channel speaker
sounds too bright, you could roll off the extreme high frequencies.
SPEAKER (front/center/surround/

to +6dB (MAX). Negative number settings
reduce the high frequency output; positive
number settings increase it.
LF CONTOUR: Adjusts the extreme low frequency slope over a range of -6dB (MIN)
to +6dB (MAX). Negative number settings
reduce the low frequency output; positive
number settings increase it.
The contour adjustments are designed to work
at the frequency extremes and be relatively
subtle so that they do not have a negative
impact on midrange sounds. We recommend acclimating to the sound of the system with the contour adjustments defeated
and then making adjustments, if necessary,
to address specific speaker response issues
or personal taste.

(full mute) to MAX, in 1dB increments. Note
that this setting cannot exceed the MAX VOL
established in the next line of the menu.
MAX VOL: Specifies the maximum volume
level for Zone 2. The volume cannot be adjusted above this level. Settings range from
MIN to MAX, in 1dB increments.
12V TRIGGER: The RSX-1057 has three12V
trigger outputs that supply a 12V DC signal
to turn on Rotel components and other components as needed. The 12V Trigger labeled
ZONE 2 is assigned to Zone 2 and can send
a turn-on signal to remote components whenever Zone 2 is activated. Select the appropriate setting from eight options to have the
ZONE 2 trigger output send the turn-on signal. The options that will activate the Zone
2 trigger are: zone, 1+zone, 2+zone, and
ALL. The options that will disable the Zone
2 trigger are: 1, 2, 1+2, and No.

MAIN MENU
The DEFAULT SETUP menu provides access
to six functions:
• Set the tuning function for North American or European frequencies.
• Redirect the front channel amplifiers to
power center back speakers or speakers
in Zone 2 speakers.
• Restore all features and settings to the
original FACTORY DEFAULT settings.
• Memorize a custom group of settings as
a USER DEFAULT.
• Activate the memorized USER DEFAULT
settings.
To change the TUNER setting: Place the
highlight on the TUNER SETTING line using
the UP/DOWN buttons and use the +/– buttons to change the setting to N. AMERICA
or EUROPE. Then, move the highlight to the
FACTORY DEFAULT line and change the setting to YES as described above. The screen
will change to a confirmation screen. Press
the ENTER button to proceed with resetting
the FACTORY DEFAULT settings and changing
the TUNER SETTING. To return to the MAIN
menu without resetting the FACTORY DEFAULT
and TUNER settings, change the entry to NO
and press the ENTER button.
To change the FRONT REDIRECT setting: Place the highlight on the FRONT REDIRECT line using the UP/DOWN buttons and
use the +/– buttons to change the setting to
FRONT SP (for powering front speakers), CB
SP (for powering center back speakers), or
ZONE SP (for powering speakers in zone
2). If you redirect the internal amplifiers, then
you will need a separate stereo amplifier to
drive your front speakers.
NOTE :
Changing the default TUNER SETTING
or REDIRECT SETTING can only done at the
same time as restoring the FACTORY DEFAULT
settings. Therefore, we recommend selecting
your default TUNER and REDIRECT settings
and resetting to the FACTORY DEFAULT settings as the first step in configuring the unit,
before you change or memorize any other
configuration settings.
To restore the FACTORY DEFAULT settings: Place the highlight on the FACTORY
DEFAULT line using the UP/DOWN buttons
and use the +/– buttons to change the setting to YES. Press the ENTER button to proceed with resetting the FACTORY DEFAULT
settings. The unit will power off and then on,
with the factory settings restored. To return
to the MAIN menu without resetting the FACTORY DEFAULT settings, change the entry to
NO and press the ENTER button.
NOTE : Resetting to factory default settings
will erase all stored settings including delay
settings, speaker settings, balance settings,
input settings and more. You will lose ALL
system configuration settings. Be certain that
you wish to do so before resetting the factory defaults.

MORE INFORMATION
Troubleshooting
The unit does not turn on.
• Make sure the power cord is plugged into
the rear panel and a live AC outlet.
• Make sure the rear panel POWER switch
is in the ON position.
No sound from any input.
• Make sure that MUTING is off and VOLUME is turned up.
• Make sure that preamp outputs are connected to a power amplifier and that the
amplifier is turned on.
• Make sure source inputs are connected
and configured correctly.
No sound from digital sources.
• Make sure that digital input connector is
assigned to the proper source input and
that the source input is configured to use
the digital input rather than an analog
input.
• Check the configuration of the DVD player
to ensure that the bitstream and/or DTS
digital output is activated.
No sound from some speakers.
• Check all power amp and speaker connections.
• Check Speaker Configuration settings in
the Setup menus.
No video output on TV monitor.
• Make sure that the TV monitor is connected properly. Component video outputs
can send any type of signal to the TV.
Composite video connections can only
send video from Composite sources and
S-Video connections can only send video
from S-Video sources.
• HDMI connections can only send video
signals from HDMI sources. HDMI components must be Ver. 1.1 compatible.
HDMI cables must be 5 meters or less in
length.
• Make sure the NTSC/PAL switch is set
properly.
OSD menus are not displayed on TV
Monitor.
• Go to Setup menus and configure OSD
menus to be displayed on the TV monitor.
• In some PAL systems, the menus may not
be displayed unless there is an active
video signal.
• When using progressive scan video signals, make sure that the progressive mode
is selected for that video input in the OTHER OPTIONS setup menu. This allows the
display of the OSD menus on the TV monitor by interrupting the progressive scan
video signal and restoring it after the OSD
menus are cancelled. The temporary information screens (such as volume, etc.)
cannot be displayed on the TV monitor
when progressive scan signals are used.
• HDMI video connections can not display
OSD menus on the TV monitor. Use other
type of video connection.
Video and Audio do not match.
• Check that the proper video source is selected for each input.
• Check that the group delay (lip-synch)
setting is not misadjusted.
Clicking or popping sounds when
switching inputs.
• The unit uses relay switching to preserve
maximum sound quality. The mechanical
clicking of the relays is normal.
• During switching, it may take a split second for digital signals to be recognized
and properly decoded. Rapid repeated
switching between inputs or settings can
result in clicks or pops from the speakers as
the unit attempts to lock on to the rapidly
changing signals. This causes no harm.
Controls do not operate.
• Make sure that fresh batteries are installed
in the remote.
• Make sure that the IR sensor on the front
panel is not blocked. Aim the remote at
the sensor.
• Make sure the sensor is not receiving strong
IR light (sunlight, halogen lighting, etc.)
• Unplug the unit from the AC outlet, wait 30
seconds, and plug it back in to reset.
