If the AC plug of this unit does not match the AC
outlet you want to use, the plug must be removed
and appropriate one fitted. Replacement and
mounting of an AC plug on the power supply cord of
this unit should be performed only by qualified
service personnel. If connected to an AC outlet, the
cut-off plug can cause severe electrical shock. Make
sure it is properly disposed of after removal.
The equipment should be disconnected by removing
the mains plug from the wall socket when left unused
for a long period of time (for example, when on
vacation).
CAUTION
The STANDBY/ON switch on this unit will not
completely shut off all power from the AC outlet.
Since the power cord serves as the main disconnect
device for the unit, you will need to unplug it from
the AC outlet to shut down all power. Therefore,
make sure the unit has been installed so that the
power cord can be easily unplugged from the AC
outlet in case of an accident. To avoid fire hazard,
the power cord should also be unplugged from the
AC outlet when left unused for a long period of time
(for example, when on vacation).

Before you start
Chapter 1:
Before you start
Features
• Advanced Direct Energy design
This receiver offers a new advancement in discrete
design unique to Pioneer for high-power drivability, low
distortion and stable imaging. Through a circuit design
that minimizes the energy loss of the amplifier for each of
the channels, this receiver generates equal amplifier
power to all channels, eliminating the possibility of one
channel dominating a particular sound field.
• Easy setup using Advanced MCACC
The Auto MCACC Setup provides a quick but accurate
surround sound setup, which includes the advanced
features of Professional Acoustic Calibration EQ. This
innovative technology measures the reverb
characteristics of your listening area, allowing you to
customize your system calibration with the help of a
graphical output that can be displayed on-screen or
using computer. With the additional benefits of
numerous MCACC preset memories, standing wave
control and microphone measurements from a series of
reference points, your home theater experience can be
truly customized for optimal surround sound.
• THX Select2 Plus certified design
This receiver bears the THX Select2 Plus logo, which
means it has passed a rigorous series of quality and
performance tests covering every aspect of the product.
This includes testing of pre-amplifier and power amplifier
performance and operation, and hundreds of other
parameters in both the digital and analog domain,
making your home theater experience as faithful as
possible to what the director intended.
• Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, including Dolby
Digital EX, Dolby Pro Logic IIx, DTS 96/24, DTS-ES, Dolby
Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-EXPRESS and DTS-HD
Master Audio
Dolby Digital and DTS decoding brings theater sound
right into your home with up to six channels of surround
sound, including a special LFE (Low Frequency Effects)
channel for deep, realistic sound effects.
The built-in Dolby Pro Logic IIx and DTS Neo:6 decoders
not only provide full surround sound decoding for Dolby
Surround sources, but will also generate convincing
surround sound for any stereo source.
Also, with the addition of a surround back speaker, you
can take advantage of the built-in Dolby Digital EX and
DTS-ES decoders for six-channel surround sound.
8
En
Furthermore, Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby TrueHD,
which are designed for the next-generation highdefinition media such as Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD,
support up to 7.1 channels and 8 channels respectively.
DTS-EXPRESS is a low-bitrate encoding technology
supporting up to 5.1 channels, with fixed data transfer
rates ranging from 24 kbps to 256 kbps (this encoding is
available only when signals are delivered to this receiver
as primary audio).
DTS-HD Master Audio delivers audio signals to listeners
without any loss of data with its high transfer rates.
• Phase Control
The Phase Control technology incorporated into this
receiver’s design provides coherent sound reproduction
through the use of phase matching for an optimal sound
image at your listening position.
• Sound Retriever
The Sound Retriever feature employs DSP technology to
restore sound pressure and smooth jagged artifacts left
over after compression. This helps bring CD quality
sound back to WMA and MP3 audio files and achieves a
richer sense of presence when playing Dolby Digital, DTS
or WMA 9 Pro audio formats recorded in multiple
channels on DVDs and other discs.
• Front Stage Surround Advance
With the Front Stage Surround Advance feature, you can
enjoy seamless, natural surround sound effects using
only the front speakers, without deteriorating the quality
of the original sound.
• Auto Level Control
When the source is played in Auto level control mode
(ALC), this receiver automatically equalizes the playback
sound level according to the variation in recording levels.
• HDMI and digital video conversion
This receiver is compatible with the HDMI digital video
format, providing you with high-definition digital video/
audio via a single cable.
High-quality sound formats such as DTS-HD and Dolby
TrueHD are supported while this receiver is also
compatible with the Deep Color feature. You can operate
this receiver in synchronization with your Pioneer
component that supports the KURO LINK function by
connecting your component to this receiver via HDMI.
Also, the built-in digital video converter of this receiver
makes both de-interlacing and up-scaling possible, and
analog video signals being input are converted and
output as digital video signals at the HDMI terminal.

Determining the speakers’ application
Surround sound with a strong sense of presence can be
enjoyed by connecting 7 speakers and 1 subwoofer. It is
also possible to achieve high sound quality using bi-amp
connections and to enjoy music in other rooms using the
MULTI-ZONE feature. High sound quality can be
achieved with a minimum of two speakers.
• Be sure to connect speakers to the front left and right
channels ( L and R ).
• The Surr Back System setting must be made if you
use any of the connections shown below other than
[1] (see Selecting the Surr Back system on page 22).
[1] 7.1ch surround connection
(Simple connection & Best surround)
*Default setting
These connections prioritize surround sound with a
speaker layout like that in a movie theater.
• Surr Back System setting: Normal (default)
• If you have six speakers, either only connect one
surround back speaker (6.1 ch surround), or connect
for the 7.1-channel setting as shown on the diagram
below but without the center speaker.
03
[3] 5.1ch surround & ZONE 2 connection
(Multi Zone)
With these connections you can simultaneously enjoy
5.1-channel surround sound in the main zone with stereo
playback on another component in ZONE 2. (The
selection of input devices is limited.)

Placing the speakers
To achieve the best possible surround sound, install your
speakers as shown below.
5.1 channel surround system:

Where you put your speakers in the room has a big effect
on the quality of the sound. The following guidelines
should help you to get the best sound from your system.

• The subwoofer can be placed on the floor. Ideally, the
other speakers should be at about ear-level when
you’re listening to them. Putting the speakers on the
floor (except the subwoofer), or mounting them very
high on a wall is not recommended.
• For the best stereo effect, place the front speakers 2
m to 3 m (6 ft. to 9 ft.) apart, at equal distance from
the TV.
• If you’re using a center speaker, place the front
speakers at a wider angle. If not, place them at a
narrower angle.

• Place the center speaker above or below the TV so
that the sound of the center channel is localized at
the TV screen. Also, make sure the center speaker
does not cross the line formed by the leading edge of
the front left and right speakers.
• It is best to angle the speakers towards the listening
position. The angle depends on the size of the room.
Use less of an angle for bigger rooms.

See also THX Audio Setting on page 93 to make the
settings that will give you the best sound experience
when using the Home THX modes (page 57).
Some tips for improving sound quality
Subwoofer
Front left
If you are using a THX certified subwoofer use the THX
INPUT jack on the subwoofer (if your subwoofer has one)
or switch the filter position to THX on your subwoofer.
Surround back
right
• Surround and surround back speakers should be
positioned 60 cm to 90 cm (2 ft. to 3 ft.) higher than
your ears and tilted slight downward. Make sure the
speakers don’t face each other. For DVD-Audio, the
speakers should be more directly behind the listener
than for home theater playback.
• If the surround speakers cannot be set directly to the
side of the listening position with a 7.1-channel
system, the surround effect can be enhanced by
turning off the Up Mix function (see Setting the Up
Mix function on page 60).
• Try not to place the surround speakers farther away
from the listening position than the front and center
speakers. Doing so can weaken the surround sound
effect.

Connecting the speakers
Each speaker connection on the receiver comprises a
positive (+) and negative (–) terminal. Make sure to
match these up with the terminals on the speakers
themselves.
CAUTION
• These speaker terminals carry HAZARDOUS LIVE
voltage. To prevent the risk of electric shock when
connecting or disconnecting the speaker cables,
disconnect the power cord before touching any
uninsulated parts.
• Make sure that all the bare speaker wire is twisted
together and inserted fully into the speaker terminal.
If any of the bare speaker wire touches the back panel
it may cause the power to cut off as a safety measure.
Bare wire connections

Banana plug connections
If you want to use speaker cables terminated with banana
plugs, screw the speaker terminal fully shut, then plug
the banana plug into the end of the speaker terminal.
Important
• Please refer to the manual that came with your
speakers for details on how to connect the other end
of the speaker cables to your speakers.
• Use an RCA cable to connect the subwoofer. It is not
possible to connect using speaker cables.
CAUTION
• Make sure that all speakers are securely installed.
This not only improves sound quality, but also
reduces the risk of damage or injury resulting from
speakers being knocked over or falling in the event of
external shocks such as earthquakes.

Installing your speaker system
At the very least, front left and right speakers only are necessary. Note that your main surround speakers should always
be connected as a pair, but you can connect just one surround back speaker if you like (it must be connected to the
left surround back terminal).

Bi-amping is when you connect the high frequency driver
and low frequency driver of your speakers to different
amplifiers for better crossover performance. Your
speakers must be bi-ampable to do this (having separate
terminals for high and low) and the sound improvement
will depend on the kind of speakers you’re using.
CAUTION
• Most speakers with both High and Low terminals
have two metal plates that connect the High to the
Low terminals. These must be removed when you are
bi-amping the speakers or you could severely
damage the amplifier. See your speaker manual for
more information.
Surround left
Bi-wiring your speakers
Your speakers can also be bi-wired if they support biamping.
• With these connections, the Surr Back System
setting makes no difference.
• To bi-wire a speaker, connect two speaker cords to
the speaker terminal on the receiver.
Using a banana plug for the second connection is
recommended.
• If your speakers have a removable crossover network,
make sure you do not remove it for bi-amping. Doing
so may damage your speakers.
CAUTION
• Don’t connect different speakers from the same
terminal in this way.
• When bi-wiring as well, heed the cautions for biamping shown at the left.

About the video converter
The video converter ensures that all video sources are output through all of the MONITOR OUT jacks. The only
exception is HDMI: since this resolution cannot be downsampled, you must connect your monitor/TV to the receiver’s
HDMI video outputs when connecting this video source.1
If several video components are assigned to the same input function (see The Input Setup menu on page 43), the
converter gives priority to HDMI, component, S-Video, then composite (in that order).

• If you want to listen to the sound of the TV over the
receiver, connect the receiver and TV with audio
cables.
• Component video should give superior picture quality
when compared to composite or S-Video. You can also
take advantage of progressive scan video (if your
source and TV are both compatible), which delivers a
very stable, flicker-free picture. See the manuals that
came with your TV and source component to check
whether they are compatible with progressive-scan

Note
1 • An HDMI connection can only be made with DVI-equipped components compatible with both DVI and High Bandwidth Digital Content
Protection (HDCP). If you choose to connect to a DVI connector, you will need a separate adaptor (DVIHDMI) to do so. A DVI connection,
however, does not support audio signals. Consult your local audio dealer for more information.
• If you connect a component that is not compatible with HDCP, an HDCP ERROR message is displayed on the front panel display. Some
components that are compatible with HDCP still cause this message to be displayed, but so long as there is no problem with displaying video
this is not a malfunction.
• Depending on the component you have connected, using a DVI connection may result in unreliable signal transfers.
• This receiver supports SACD, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. To take advantage of these formats, however, make
sure that the component connected to this receiver also supports the corresponding format.
2 Signal transfer is only possible when connected to a compatible component.

• If your turntable has line-level outputs (i.e., it has a
built-in phono pre-amp), connect it to the CD inputs
instead.
• You can use the additional amplifier on the surround
back channel pre-outs for a single speaker as well. In
this case plug the amplifier into the left (L (Single))
terminal only.
• If you’re connecting a recorder, connect the analog
audio outputs to the analog audio inputs on the
recorder.
• The sound from the surround back terminals will
depend on how you have configured the Surround
back speaker setting on page 91.
About the WMA9 Pro decoder
This unit has an on-board Windows Media™ Audio 9
Professional1 (WMA9 Pro) decoder, so it is possible to
playback WMA9 Pro-encoded audio using HDMI, coaxial
or optical digital connection when connected to a WMA9
Pro-compatible player. However, the connected DVD
player, set-top box, etc. must be able to output WMA9 Pro
format audio signals through a coaxial or optical digital
output.
• To hear sound only from the pre-outs, switch the
speaker system to OFF, or simply disconnect any
speakers that are connected directly to the receiver.
If you’re not using a subwoofer, change the front speaker
setting (see Speaker Setting on page 91) to LARGE.
Note
1 • Windows Media and the Windows logo are trademarks or registered trademarks of Microsoft Corporation in the United States and/or other

• With WMA9 Pro, sound problems may occur depending on your computer system. Note that WMA9 Pro 96 kHz sources will be
downsampled to 48 kHz.

VSX-23TXH
Different sources can be playing in two (VSX-21TXH)/three
(VSX-23TXH) zones at the same time or, depending on
your needs, the same source can also be used. The main
and sub zone(s) have independent power (the main zone
power can be off while one (or both) of the sub zone(s) is
on) and the sub zone(s) can be controlled by the remote
or front panel controls. However, you may need to specify
the volume settings in ZONE Audio Setup on page 95.
Making MULTI-ZONE connections
It is possible to make these connections if you have a
separate TV and speakers for your primary (ZONE 2) sub
zone (and a separate amplifier1 (and speakers) for your
secondary (ZONE 3) sub zone (VSX-23TXH only)). You will
also need a separate amplifier if you are not using the
MULTI-ZONE setup using speaker terminals (ZONE 2) on
page 34 for your primary sub zone. There are two primary
sub zone setups possible with this system. Choose
whichever works best for you.
MULTI-ZONE listening options
The following table shows the signals that can be output
to sub zone(s):
Sub zone
Input functions available
ZONE 2
Analog audio signals (AUDIO ZONE 2 OUT).a
With video signals,b the composite video (VIDEO
ZONE 2 OUT) signals can be output.

Connecting an IR receiver
If you keep your stereo components in a closed cabinet or
shelving unit, or you wish to use the sub zone remote
control in another zone, you can use an optional IR
receiver (such as a Niles or Xantech unit) to control your
system instead of the remote sensor on the front panel of
this receiver.1

Many Pioneer components have SR CONTROL jacks
which can be used to link components together so that
you can use just the remote sensor of one component.
When you use a remote control, the control signal is
passed along the chain to the appropriate component.2
Important
• Note that if you use this feature, make sure that you
also have at least one set of analog audio, video or
HDMI jacks connected to another component for
grounding purposes.
2 Connect the CONTROL OUT jack of that component
to the CONTROL IN jack of another Pioneer component.
Use a cable with a mono mini-plug on each end for the
connection.

The Auto MCACC Setup measures the acoustic
characteristics of your listening area, taking into account
ambient noise, speaker connection and speaker size, and
tests for both channel delay and channel level. After you
have set up the microphone provided with your system,
the receiver uses the information from a series of test
tones to optimize the speaker settings and equalization
for your particular room.

Note
1 • If you are planning on bi-amping your front speakers, or setting up a separate speaker system in another room, read through Surround back
speaker setting on page 91 and make sure to connect your speakers as necessary before continuing to step 4.
• If you have THX-certified speakers, select Return, then select Auto MCACC for the THX speaker setting. See Automatic MCACC (Expert) on
page 78 for more on this.
2 The six MCACC presets are used for storing surround sound settings for different listening positions. Simply choose an unused preset for now
(you can rename it later in Data Management on page 88).
3 Note that correction curves are saved only when set to SYMMETRY. Select Return, then select Auto MCACC to save other correction curves
(such as ALL CH ADJ and FRONT ALIGN). See Automatic MCACC (Expert) on page 78 for more on this.
4 Do not adjust the volume during the test tones. This may result in incorrect speaker settings.
5 If the speaker is not pointed to the microphone (listening position) or when using speakers that affect the phase (dipole speakers, reflective
speakers, etc.), Reverse Phase may be displayed even if the speakers are properly connected.
6 You can also choose to view the settings from the MCACC Data Check screen. See Checking MCACC Data on page 86 for more on this.
7 • Depending on the characteristics of your room, sometimes identical speakers with cone sizes of around 12 cm will end up with different size
settings. You can correct the setting manually using the Manual speaker setup on page 90.
• The subwoofer distance setting may be farther than the actual distance from the listening position. This setting should be accurate (taking
delay and room characteristics into account) and generally does not need to be changed.
• If Auto MCACC Setup measurement results are incorrect due to the interaction of the speakers and viewing environment, we recommend
adjusting the settings manually.

Problems when using the Auto MCACC Setup
If the room environment is not optimal for the Auto
MCACC Setup (too much background noise, echo off the
walls, obstacles blocking the speakers from the
microphone) the final settings may be incorrect. Check
for household appliances (air conditioner, fridge, fan,
etc.), that may be affecting the environment and switch
them off if necessary. If there are any instructions
showing in the front panel display, please follow them.
• Some older TVs may interfere with the operation of
the microphone. If this seems to be happening,
switch off the TV when doing the Auto MCACC Setup.
The Input Setup menu
You only need to make settings in the Input Setup menu
if you didn’t hook up your digital equipment according to
the default settings (see Input function default and
possible settings on page 44). In this case, you need to
tell the receiver what equipment is hooked up to which
terminal so the buttons on the remote control
correspond to the components you’ve connected.

When using a surround back speaker, 2D+PLIIx
MOVIE is displayed when playing Dolby Digital 5.1channel signals, and DTS+Neo:6 is displayed when
playing DTS 5.1-channel signals.
When not using a surround back speaker, DOLBY
DIGITAL is displayed when playing Dolby Digital 5.1channel signals.
If the display does not correspond to the input signal and
listening mode, check the connections and settings.
4 Use the volume control to adjust the volume level.
Turn down the volume of your TV so that all sound is
coming from the speakers connected to this receiver.
REMOTE
SETUP
1 Switch on your system components and receiver.
Start by switching on the playback component (for
example a DVD player), your TV1 and subwoofer (if you
have one), then the receiver (press  RECEIVER).
• Make sure the setup microphone is disconnected.
2 Select the input function you want to play.
You can use the input function buttons on the remote
control, INPUT SELECT, or the front panel INPUT
SELECTOR dial.2
3 Press RECEIVER , then press AUTO/ALC/DIRECT
(AUTO SURR/ALC/STREAM DIRECT) to select ‘AUTO
SURROUND’ and start playback of the source.3
If you’re playing a Dolby Digital or DTS surround sound
DVD disc, you should hear surround sound. If you are
playing a stereo source, you will only hear sound from the
front left/right speakers in the default listening mode.
• See also Listening to your system on page 56 for
information on different ways of listening to sources.
Playing a source with HDMI connection
• Use INPUT SELECT to select the HDMI input you’ve
connected to (for example, HDMI 1).
You can also perform the same operation by using the
INPUT SELECTOR dial on the front panel or by pressing
HDMI on the remote control repeatedly.
• Set the HDMI parameter in Setting the Audio options
on page 66 to THROUGH if you want to hear HDMI
audio output from your TV or flat panel TV (no sound
will be heard from this receiver).
• If the video signal does not appear on your TV or flat
panel TV, try adjusting the resolution settings on your
component or display. Note that some components
(such as video game units) have resolutions that may
not be converted. In this case, use an analog video
connection.
• You can’t hear HDMI audio through this receiver’s
digital out jack.
It is possible to check on the front panel display whether
or not multi-channel playback is being performed
properly.
Note
1 Make sure that the TV’s video input is set to this receiver (for example, if you connected this receiver to the VIDEO jacks on your TV, make sure
that the VIDEO input is now selected).
2 If you need to manually switch the input signal type press SIGNAL SEL (page 61).
3 • You may need to check the digital audio output settings on your DVD player or digital satellite receiver. It should be set to output Dolby
Digital, DTS and 88.2 kHz / 96 kHz PCM (2 channel) audio, and if there is an MPEG audio option, set this to convert the MPEG audio to PCM.
• Depending on your DVD player or source discs, you may only get digital 2 channel stereo and analog sound. In this case, the receiver must be
set to a multichannel listening mode (see Listening in surround sound on page 56 if you need to do this) if you want multichannel surround
sound.

Tuning directly to a station
Listening to the radio
The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and
AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and
manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the
frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a
station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can
memorize the frequency for recall later—see Saving
station presets below for more on how to do this.

Sometimes, you’ll already know the frequency of the
station you want to listen to. In this case, you can simply
enter the frequency directly using the number buttons on
the remote control.
4 Use the number buttons to enter the frequency of
the radio station.
For example, to tune to 106.00 (FM), press 1, 0, 6, 0, 0.
If you make a mistake halfway through, press D.ACCESS
twice to cancel the frequency and start over.
Press TUNER to select the tuner.
2 Use BAND to change the band (FM or AM), if
necessary.
Each press switches the band between FM and AM.
3 Tune to a station.
There are three ways to do this:
Automatic tuning – To search for stations in the
currently selected band, press and hold TUNE /
for about a second. The receiver will start searching
for the next station, stopping when it has found one.
Repeat to search for other stations.
Manual tuning – To change the frequency one step
at a time, press TUNE /.
High speed tuning – Press and hold TUNE / for
high speed tuning. Release the button at the
frequency you want.
Improving FM sound
If the TUNED or STEREO indicator doesn’t light when
tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press
MPX to switch the receiver into mono reception mode.
This should improve the sound quality and allow you to
enjoy the broadcast.
Saving station presets
If you often listen to a particular radio station, it’s
convenient to have the receiver store the frequency for
easy recall whenever you want to listen to that station.
This saves the effort of manually tuning in each time. This
receiver can memorize up to 63 stations, stored in seven
banks, or classes (A to G) of 9 stations each. When saving
an FM frequency, the MPX setting (see above) is also
stored.
1 Tune to a station you want to memorize.
See Listening to the radio above for more on this.
2 Press T.EDIT (TUNER EDIT).
The display shows PRESET MEMORY, then a blinking
memory class.
3 Press CLASS to select one of the seven classes, then
press PRESET / to select the station preset you
want.
You can also use the number buttons to select a station
preset.
4 Press ENTER.
After pressing ENTER, the preset class and number stop
blinking and the receiver stores the station.
Using Neural THX
This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technologies
to achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.
• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/ALC/
DIRECT for Neural THX listening.
See About Neural – THX Surround on page 110 for more

Listening to Satellite Radio
To listen to Satellite Radio, you’ll need to connect either
a SIRIUS or XM Satellite Radio tuner (sold separately) to
your satellite-ready receiver. Satellite Radio is available to
residents of the US (except Alaska and Hawaii) and
Canada.
Satellite Radio delivers a variety of commercial-free
music from categories ranging from Pop, Rock, Country,

You can have the receiver automatically use 6.1 or 7.1
decoding for 6.1 encoded sources (for example, Dolby
Digital EX or DTS-ES), or you can choose to always use
6.1 or 7.1 decoding (for example, with 5.1 encoded
material). With 5.1 encoded sources, a surround back
channel will be generated, but the material may sound
better in the 5.1 format for which it was originally
encoded (in which case, you can simply switch surround
back channel processing off).
• With a 7.1-channel surround system, audio signals
that have undergone matrix decoding processing
through surround back channel processing to which
the Up Mix function is added are output from the
surround back speakers.

Better sound using Phase Control
This receiver’s Phase Control feature uses phase
correction measures to make sure your sound source
arrives at the listening position in phase, preventing
unwanted distortion and/or coloring of the sound.
During multichannel playback, LFE (Low-Frequency
Effects) signals as well as low-frequency signals in each
channel are assigned to the subwoofer or the other most
appropriate speaker. At least in theory, however, this type
of processing involves a group delay that varies with
frequency, resulting in phase distortion where the lowfrequency sound is delayed or muffled by the conflict
with other channels. With the Phase Control mode
switched on, this receiver can reproduce powerful bass
sound without deteriorating the quality of the original
sound (see illustration below).
• ANALOG – Selects an analog signal.
• DIGITAL – Selects an optical or coaxial digital signal.
• HDMI – Selects an HDMI signal.4
Note
1 Different presets might also have separate calibration settings for the same listening position, depending on how you’re using your system.
These presets can be set in Automatically setting up for surround sound (Auto MCACC) on page 41 or Automatic MCACC (Expert) on page 78,
either of which you should have already completed.
2 • These settings have no effect when headphones are connected.
• You can also press / to select the MCACC preset.
3 • This receiver can only play back Dolby Digital, PCM (32 kHz to 192 kHz), DTS (including DTS 96/24) and WMA9 Pro digital signal formats.
The compatible signals via the HDMI terminals are: Dolby Digital, DTS, WMA9 Pro, PCM (32 kHz to 192 kHz), Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus,
DTS-EXPRESS, DTS-HD Master Audio, SACD and DVD Audio (including 192 kHz). With other digital signal formats, set to ANALOG (the
MULTI CH IN and TUNER).
• You may get digital noise when a LD or CD player compatible with DTS is playing an analog signal. To prevent noise, make the proper digital
connections (page 29) and set the signal input to DIGITAL.
• Some DVD players don’t output DTS signals. For more details, refer to the instruction manual supplied with your DVD player.
4 When the HDMI audio output parameter is set to THROUGH, the sound will be heard through your TV, not from this receiver.
5 • This is useful if you find there is a slight delay before AUTO recognizes the PCM signal on a CD, for instance.
• When PCM is selected, noise may be output during playback of non-PCM sources. Please select another input signal if this is a problem.

Note
1 • Phase matching is a very important factor in achieving proper sound reproduction. If two waveforms are ‘in phase’, they crest and trough
together, resulting in increased amplitude, clarity and presence of the sound signal. If a crest of a wave meets a trough, then the sound will
be ‘out of phase’ and an unreliable sound image will be produced.
• The PHASE CONTROL feature is available even when the headphones are plugged in.
• If your subwoofer has a phase control switch, set it to the plus (+) sign (or 0°). However, the effect you can actually feel when PHASE
CONTROL is set to ON on this receiver depends on the type of your subwoofer. Set your subwoofer to maximize the effect. It is also
recommended you try changing the orientation or the place of your subwoofer.
• Set the built-in lowpass filter switch of your subwoofer to off. If this cannot be done on your subwoofer, set the cutoff frequency to a higher
value.
• If the speaker distance is not properly set, you may not have a maximized PHASE CONTROL effect.
• The PHASE CONTROL mode cannot be set to ON in the following cases:
– When the PURE DIRECT mode is switched on.
– When the MULTI CH IN input is selected.
– When the HDMI audio output parameter is set to THROUGH in Setting the Audio options on page 66.

Chapter 7:
KURO LINK
Synchronized operation with a KURO LINK-compatible
Pioneer flat panel TV or Blu-ray disc player or with a
component of another make that supports the KURO
LINK function is possible when the component is
connected to the receiver using an HDMI cable.
For details about concrete operations, settings, etc., refer
to the operating instructions for each component.
• You cannot use this function with components that
do not support KURO LINK.
• We do not guarantee this receiver will work with
Pioneer KURO LINK-compatible components or
components of other makes that support the KURO
LINK function. We do not guarantee that all
synchronized operations will work with components
of other makes that support the KURO LINK function.
• Use a High Speed HDMI™ cable when you want to
use the KURO LINK function. The KURO LINK
function may not work properly if a different type of
HDMI cable is used.
Making the KURO LINK connections
You can use synchronized operation for a connected flat
panel TV and up to four (VSX-23TXH)/three (VSX-21TXH)
other components.
Be sure to connect the flat panel TV’s audio cable to the
audio input of this unit.
For details, see Connecting your TV and playback
components on page 24.
Important
• When connecting this system or changing
connections, be sure to switch the power off and
disconnect the power cord from the wall socket.
After completing all connections, connect the power
cords to the wall socket.
• After this receiver is connected to an AC outlet, a 2
second to 10 second HDMI initialization process
begins. You cannot carry out any operations during
initialization. The HDMI indicator on the display unit
blinks during initialization, and you can turn this
receiver on once it has stopped blinking.
• To get the most out of this function, we recommend
that you connect your HDMI component not to a flat
panel TV but rather directly to the HDMI terminal on
this receiver.
• VSX-23TXH only: To use the KURO LINK function,
connect this receiver and flat panel TV using the
HDMI OUT 1 terminal. Connecting the KURO LINK
compatible component using the HDMI OUT 2
terminal may result in malfunction. If this happens,
turn off the KURO LINK compatible component’s
KURO LINK setting.
• While the receiver is equipped with four (VSX-23TXH)/
three (VSX-21TXH) HDMI inputs, the KURO LINK
function can only be used with up to three DVD or
Blu-ray disc players or up to three DVD or Blu-ray disc
recorders.
Cautions on the KURO LINK function
• Connect the TV directly to this receiver. Interrupting a
direct connection with other amps or an AV converter
(such as an HDMI switch) can cause operational
errors.
• Only connect components (Blu-ray disc player, etc.)
you intend to use as a source to the HDMI input of
this receiver. Interrupting a direct connection with
other amps or an AV converter (such as an HDMI
switch) can cause operational errors.
• When KURO LINK is set to ON, HDMI Input is
automatically set to OFF.
• If a listening mode other than AUTO SURROUND,
ALC, DIRECT, PURE DIRECT or STEREO is selected
while the PQLS effect is enabled, the PQLS effect is
disabled.
• When this receiver is connected by HDMI cable to a
Pioneer player that is compatible with the PQLS
function via HDMI connection and HDMI
reauthentication is performed (the HDMI indicator
blinks), the PQLS effect is enabled and the listening
mode is set to AUTO SURROUND if a listening mode
other than AUTO SURROUND, ALC, DIRECT, PURE
DIRECT or STEREO is selected.
• When the receiver’s KURO LINK is turned ON, even
if the receiver’s power is in the standby mode, it is
possible to output the audio and video signals from a
player via HDMI to the TV without producing sound
from the receiver, but only when a KURO LINKcompatible component (Blu-ray disc player, etc.) and
compatible TV are connected. In this case, the
receiver’s power turns on and the power and HDMI
indicators light.

• Use SPEAKERS on the front panel to select a
speaker system setting.
As mentioned above, if you have selected Normal, the
button will simply switch your main speaker system (A)
on or off.
Press repeatedly to choose a speaker system option:
• SPA – Sound is output from speaker system A and
the same signal is output from the pre-out terminals.
• SPB – Sound is output from the two speakers
connected to speaker system B. Multichannel
sources will not be heard. The same signal is output
from the surround back channel pre-out terminals.
• SPAB – Sound is output from speaker system A (up
to 5 channels, depending on the source), the two
speakers in speaker system B, and the subwoofer.
The sound from speaker system B will be the same as
the sound from speaker system A (multichannel
sources will be downmixed to 2 channels).
• SP (off) – No sound is output from the speakers. The
same sound is output from the pre-out terminals
(including from your subwoofer, if connected) as
when selecting speaker system A (above).
1 Press MULTI-ZONE ON/OFF on the front panel.
Each press selects a MULTI-ZONE option:
• ZONE 2 ON – Selects your primary (ZONE 2) sub zone
• VSX-23TXH only: ZONE 2&3 ON – Select both sub zones
• VSX-23TXH only: ZONE 3 ON – Selects your secondary
(ZONE 3) sub zone
• MULTI ZONE OFF – Switches the MULTI-ZONE
feature off
The MULTI-ZONE indicator lights when the MULTI-ZONE
control has been switched ON.
2 Press MULTI-ZONE CONTROL on the front panel to
select the sub zone(s) you want.
VSX-23TXH only: If you selected ZONE 2&3 ON above, you
can toggle between ZONE 2 and ZONE 3.
• When the receiver is on,2 make sure that any
operations for the sub zone are done while ZONE and
your selected sub zone(s) show in the display. If this
is not showing, the front panel controls affect the
main zone only.
3 Use the INPUT SELECTOR dial to select the source
for the zone you have selected.
For example, ZONE 2 CD-R sends the source connected
to the CD-R inputs to the primary (ZONE 2) sub room.
• If you select TUNER, you can use the tuner controls
to select a preset station (see Saving station presets
on page 51 if you’re unsure how to do this).3
Note
1 • The subwoofer output depends on the settings you made in Manual speaker setup on page 90. However, if SPB is selected above, no sound
is heard from the subwoofer (the LFE channel is not downmixed).
• Depending on the settings in Surround back speaker setting on page 91 output from the surround back pre-out terminals may change.
• All speaker systems (except Speaker B connections) are switched off when headphones are connected.
2 If the receiver is in standby, the display is dimmed, and ZONE and your selected sub zone(s) continue to show in the display.
3 The tuner cannot be tuned to more than one station at a time. Therefore, changing the station in one zone also changes the station in the other
zone. Please be careful not to change stations when recording a radio broadcast.

Making an audio or a video recording
You can make an audio or a video recording from the
built-in tuner, or from an audio or video source
connected to the receiver (such as a CD player or TV).3
Keep in mind you can’t make a digital recording from an
analog source or vice-versa, so make sure the
components you are recording to/from are hooked up in
the same way (see Connecting your equipment on
page 15 for more on connections).
Since the video converter is not available when making
recordings (from the video OUT jacks) make sure to use
the same type of video cable for connecting your recorder
as you used to connect your video source (the one you
want to record) to this receiver. For example, you must
connect your recorder using Component video if your
source has also been connected using Component video.
For more information about video connections, see

A/V RECEIVER
The Advanced MCACC (Multi Channel ACoustic
Calibration) system was developed in Pioneer’s
laboratories with the aim of making it possible for home
users to perform adjustments of the same level as in a
studio easily and with high precision. The acoustic
characteristics of the listening environment are
measured and the frequency response is calibrated
accordingly to allow high precision, automatic analysis
and optimal calibration of the sound field to bring it
closer to a studio environment than ever before.
Furthermore, while it was previously difficult to eliminate
standing waves, this receiver is equipped with a standing
wave control function using a unique process to perform
acoustic analysis and reduce their influence.
This section describes how to calibrate the sound field
automatically and fine-adjust the sound field data
manually.

• Auto MCACC – The default is ALL (recommended),
but you can limit the system calibration to only one
setting (to save time) if you want.4 The available
options are ALL, Keep SP System,5 Speaker
Setting, Channel Level, Speaker Distance and EQ
Pro & S-Wave.
• EQ Type (only available when the Auto MCACC
Menu above is EQ Pro & S-Wave) – This determines
how the frequency balance is adjusted.
After a single calibration is performed, each of the
following three correction curves can be stored
separately in the MCACC memory. SYMMETRY (default)
implements symmetric correction for each pair of left
and right speakers to flatten the frequency-amplitude
characteristics. ALL CH ADJ is a ‘flat’ setting where all
the speakers are set individually so no special weighting
is given to any one channel. FRONT ALIGN6 sets all
speakers in accordance with the front speaker settings
(no equalization is applied to the front left and right
channels).
• THX Speaker (only available when the Auto MCACC
Menu above is ALL or Speaker Setting) – Select YES
if you are using THX speakers (set all speakers to
SMALL), otherwise leave it set to NO.
• STAND.WAVE Multi-Point (only available when the
Auto MCACC Menu above is EQ Pro & S-Wave) – In
addition to measurements at the listening position,
you can use two more reference points for which test
tones will be analyzed for standing waves. This is
useful if you want to get a balanced ‘flat’ calibration
for several seating positions in your listening area.7
Place the microphone at the reference point
indicated on-screen and note the last microphone
placement will be at your main listening position:
Note
These are stored in memory and referred to as MEMORY1 to MEMORY6 until you rename them in Data Management on page 88.
You may also want to have separate calibration settings for the same listening position, depending on how you’re using your system.
Except in cases where you are only adjusting one parameter (i.e. channel level) from the Auto MCACC menu (step 2).
• The EQ Pro & S-Wave measurement is also taken when Keep SP System or EQ Pro & S-Wave is selected. See Acoustic Calibration EQ
Professional on page 83 for more on this.
• Either effect of Acoustic Calibration EQ Professional and Standing Wave can be switched on and off in the respective MCACC preset. For
details, see Setting the Audio options on page 66.
5 The Keep SP System option allows you to calibrate your system while leaving your current speaker setting (page 91) unchanged.
6 If you selected ALL as your Auto MCACC menu, you can specify the MCACC preset where you want to save the ALL CH ADJ and FRONT
ALIGN settings.
7 Switch the Multi-Point setting NO if you only use one listening position.

9 The Auto MCACC Setup procedure is completed and
the Advanced MCACC menu reappears automatically.
The settings made in the Auto MCACC Setup should give
you excellent surround sound from your system, but it is
also possible to adjust these settings manually using the
Manual MCACC setup menu (starting below) or Manual
SP Setup menu (starting on page 90).2
Manual MCACC setup
You can use the settings in the Manual MCACC setup
menu to make detailed adjustments when you’re more
familiar with the system. Before making these settings,
you should have already completed Automatically setting
up for surround sound (Auto MCACC) on page 41.
You only need to make these settings once (unless you
change the placement of your current speaker system or
add new speakers).
CAUTION
• The test tones used in the Manual MCACC setup are
output at high volume.
Note
1 If the speaker is not pointed to the microphone (listening position) or when using speakers that affect the phase (dipole speakers, reflective
speakers, etc.), Reverse Phase may be displayed even if the speakers are properly connected.
2 • Depending on the characteristics of your room, sometimes identical speakers with cone sizes of around 12 cm will end up with different size
settings. You can correct the setting manually using the Manual speaker setup on page 90.
• The subwoofer distance setting may be farther than the actual distance from the listening position. This setting should be accurate (taking
delay and room characteristics into account) and generally does not need to be changed.
• If Auto MCACC Setup measurement results are incorrect due to the interaction of the speakers and viewing environment, we recommend
adjusting the settings manually.
3 Since the distance measurements have been set according to the sound characteristics of your speakers, there are cases where (for optimal
surround sound) the actual distance may differ from the speaker distance setting.

Acoustic standing waves occur when, under certain
conditions, sound waves from your speaker system
resonate mutually with sound waves reflected off the
walls in your listening area. This can have a negative
effect on the overall sound, especially at certain lower
frequencies. Depending on speaker placement, your
listening position, and ultimately the shape of your room,
it results in an overly resonant (‘boomy’) sound. The
Standing Wave Control uses filters to reduce the effect of
overly resonant sounds in your listening area. During
playback of a source, you can customize the filters used
for Standing Wave Control for each of your MCACC
presets.3

Note
1 • If you can’t seem to achieve this by adjusting the distance setting, you may need to change the angle of your speakers very slightly.
• For better audibility, the subwoofer emits a continuous test tone (oscillating pulses are heard from your other speakers). Note that it may be
difficult to compare this tone with the other speakers in your setup (depending on the low frequency response of the reference speaker).
2 You can switch on or off the Standing Wave and Acoustic Calibration EQ feature in the AUDIO PARAMETER menu. See Setting the Audio
options on page 66 for more on this.
3 • Since they will be overwritten, you may want to save the standing wave settings made with the Auto MCACC Setup to another MCACC preset.
• Standing Wave control filter settings cannot be changed during playback of sources using the HDMI connection.
• When Standing Wave is selected for an MCACC preset memory where STAND.WAVE is set to OFF in the AUDIO PARAMETER,
STAND.WAVE ON is automatically selected.

Acoustic Calibration EQ Adjust
• Default setting: ON1/0.0dB (all channels/bands)
Acoustic Calibration Equalization is a kind of room
equalizer for your speakers (excluding the subwoofer). It
works by measuring the acoustic characteristics of your
room and neutralizing the ambient characteristics that
can color the original source material (providing a ‘flat’
equalization setting). If you’re not satisfied with the
adjustment provided in Automatically setting up for
surround sound (Auto MCACC) on page 41 or Automatic
MCACC (Expert) on page 78, you can also adjust these
settings manually to get a frequency balance that suits
your tastes.

Acoustic Calibration EQ Professional
This setup minimizes the unwanted effects of room
reverberation by allowing you to calibrate your system
based on the direct sound coming from the speakers. It
can also provide you with a graphical output of the
frequency response of your room.2
How to use Acoustic Calibration EQ Professional
If you find that lower frequencies seem overly reverberant
in your listening room (i.e. it sounds ‘boomy’), or that
different channels seem to exhibit different reverb
characteristics, select EQ Pro & S-Wave (or ALL) for the
Auto MCACC setting in Automatic MCACC (Expert) on
page 78 to calibrate the room automatically. This should
provide a balanced calibration that suits the
characteristics of your listening room.
If you still aren’t satisfied with the results, the manual
Advanced EQ Setup (below) provides a more
customized calibration of your system using the direct
sound of the speakers. This is done with the help of a
graphical output that can be displayed on-screen, or
using a computer (with software available from Pioneer
— see Output PC on page 88).

• Reverberance of high vs. low frequencies –
Depending on your room, you may find that lower
frequencies seem overly reverberant compared to
higher frequencies (i.e. your room sounds ‘boomy’).
This may result in a skewed frequency analysis if the
measurement is done too late.
How to interpret the graphical output
The graph shows decibels on the vertical axis and time (in
milliseconds) on the horizontal axis. A straight line
indicates a flat-response room (no reverb), whereas a
sloping line indicates the presence of reverberation when
outputting test tones. The sloping line will eventually
flatten out when the reverberant sound stabilizes (this
usually takes about 100 ms or so).
By analyzing the graph, you should be able to see how
your room is responding to certain frequencies.
Differences in channel level and speaker distance are
taken into account automatically (compensation is
provided for comparison purposes), and the frequency
measurements can be examined both with and without
the equalization performed by this receiver.1

As soon as audio is output from your speaker system, it
is influenced by room characteristics, such as walls,
furniture, and the dimensions of the room. The sooner
the frequency analysis, the less it is influenced by the
room. We recommend an earlier time setting of 30-50ms
to compensate for two major factors that will influence
the sound of most rooms:

• Reverb characteristics for different channels –
Reverb characteristics can be somewhat different for
each channel. Since this difference increases as the
sound is influenced by the various room
characteristics, it is often better to capture a
frequency analysis early on for smoother mixing of
channel frequencies/sounds.
Setting Acoustic Calibration EQ Professional
according to your room characteristics
The graph below shows the difference between
conventional acoustic calibration and professional

microphone captures sound during frequency analysis).

If your room isn’t affected by the factors above, it is often
not necessary to make a 30-50ms setting. Later time
settings may provide a more detailed sound experience
with your speaker system. It is best to try and see what
works best for your particular room.
Note that changing the room (for example, moving
furniture or paintings) will affect the calibration results.
In such cases, you should recalibrate your system.

Note
1 Note that due to an effect known as ‘group delay’, lower frequencies will take longer to be generated than higher frequencies (this is most
obvious when comparing the frequencies at 0 ms). This initial slope is not a problem (i.e. excessive reverb) with your listening room.

The following options determine how the reverb
characteristics of your listening area are displayed in
Reverb View and Output PC (see Connecting a PC for
Advanced MCACC output on page 36):
Use / to select the channel, frequency and
calibration setting you want to check. Use / to go
back and forth between the three. The reverb
characteristics graph before and after EQ calibration can
be displayed by selecting Calibration : Before / After.6
Note that the markers on the vertical axis indicate
decibels in 2 dB steps.
Note
1 If the Reverb View procedure is performed after the Automatically setting up for surround sound (Auto MCACC) on page 41 or Reverb
Measurement operation, depending on the standing wave control setting, differences may appear on the reverb graph. With the Auto MCACC
function, the reverberations are measured with the standing waves controlled, so the reverb characteristics graph shows the characteristics
with the effect of the standing waves eliminated. By contrast, the Reverb Measurement function measures the reverberations without
controlling the standing waves, so the graph indicates the reverb characteristics including the effect of the standing waves. If you wish to
check the reverb characteristics of the room itself (with the standing waves as such), we recommend using the Reverb Measurement
function.
2 The reverb characteristics after calibration can be displayed even after performing the Full Auto MCACC function (Automatically setting up
for surround sound (Auto MCACC) on page 41). In this case, the display shows the predicted reverb characteristics after calibration. If the
measurements are taken using the Reverb Measurement command (page 85) with the equalizer on, the actually measured reverb
characteristics after calibration are displayed.
3 • The calibration corresponding to the currently selected MCACC preset will be used when EQ ON is selected. To use another MCACC preset,
exit the HOME MENU and press MCACC to select it before pressing HOME MENU.
• The predicted reverb characteristics after calibration can be acquired with the Full Auto MCACC function (Automatically setting up for
surround sound (Auto MCACC) on page 41), but here the actually measured reverb characteristics after calibration can be acquired.
4 After auto calibration with EQ Type : SYMMETRY (Full Auto MCACC, etc.), the graph for the inferred reverb characteristics can be displayed
by selecting Reverb View. To display the actually measured reverb characteristics after EQ calibration, measure with EQ ON.
5 The After display when measurements have been made using the Full Auto MCACC or Auto MCACC (ALL) function shows the graph for the
inferred reverb characteristics after EQ Type : SYMMETRY calibration.
6 The reverb characteristics graph is overwritten each time the reverberations are measured. No Data is displayed if there is no reverb
characteristic data, for example before measurements have been taken.

Note
1 • If you selected Speaker B, ZONE 2 or Front Bi-Amp (in Surround back speaker setting on page 91) you can’t adjust the surround back
settings.
• If the surround speakers are set to NO, the surround back speakers will automatically be set to NO.
• If you select one surround back speaker only, make sure that speaker is hooked up to the left surround back terminal.
2 If you have a subwoofer and like lots of bass, it may seem logical to select LARGE for your front speakers and PLUS for the subwoofer. This
may not, however, yield the best bass results. Depending on the speaker placement of your room you may actually experience a decrease in
the amount of bass due low frequency cancellations. In this case, try changing the position or direction of speakers. If you can’t get good
results, listen to the bass response with it set to PLUS and YES or the front speakers set to LARGE and SMALL alternatively and let your ears
judge which sounds best. If you’re having problems, the easiest option is to route all the bass sounds to the subwoofer by selecting SMALL
for the front speakers.
3 • This setting decides the cutoff between bass sounds playing back from the speakers selected as LARGE, or the subwoofer, and bass sounds
playing back from those selected as SMALL. It also decides where the cutoff will be for bass sounds in the LFE channel.
• If you’re using a THX speaker setup, confirm that the crossover frequency is set to 80Hz.
4 • If you are using a Sound Pressure Level (SPL) meter, take the readings from your main listening position and adjust the level of each speaker
to 75 dB SPL (C-weighting/slow reading).
• The subwoofer test tone is output at low volumes. You may need to adjust the level after testing with an actual soundtrack.
5 The channel level cannot be adjusted using this procedure while making settings on HOME MENU.

Step 3: Adjusting the speaker orientation
Speaker Setting Guide
In order to achieve an even better surround effect, it is
important to accurately position the speakers and make
their volume and tone characteristics uniform so as to
finely focus the multi-channel sound.
The three major elements in positioning the speakers are
distance, angle and orientation (the direction in which
the speakers are pointing).
Distance: The distance of all the speakers should be
equal.
Angle: The speakers should be horizontally symmetrical.
Orientation: The orientation should be horizontally
symmetrical.
In most homes, however, it is not possible to achieve this
environment. For the distance, on this receiver it is
possible to automatically correct the speaker distance
electrically to a precision of 1/2 inch using the Auto
MCACC Setup function (page 41).
Step 1: Speaker layout and distance adjustment
Use speaker stands or the like to make sure the speakers
are steady, and leave at least 10 cm (4 inches) from the
surrounding walls. Position the speakers attentively so
that the speakers on the left and right are at equal angles
from the listening position (center of the adjustments).
(We recommend using cords, etc., when adjusting the
layout.) Ideally all the speakers should be equidistant
from the listening position.
Tip
• If the speakers cannot be set at equal distances (on a
circle), use the Auto MCACC Setup speaker distance
correction and Fine Speaker Distance functions to
make them equalize the distance artificially.
Step 2: Adjusting the speaker height
Adjust the heights (angles) of the different speakers.
If the left and right speakers are not pointing in the same
direction, the tone will not be the same on the right and
left, and as a result the sound field will not be reproduced
properly. However, if all the speakers are pointed towards
the listening position, the sound field will seem cramped.
Testing by the Pioneer Multi-channel Research Group
has shown that a good sense of sound positioning can be
achieved by pointing all the speakers towards an area
30 cm (12 inches) to 80 cm (31 inches) behind the
listening position (between the surround speakers and
the listening position).
However, the sense of sound positioning can differ
according to the conditions in the room and the speakers
being used. In smaller environments in particular (when
the front speakers are close to the listening position),
with this method the speakers will be pointed too inward.
We suggest you use this example of installation as
reference when trying out different installation methods.
Step 4: Positioning and adjusting the subwoofer
Placing the subwoofer between the center and front
speakers makes even music sources sound more natural
(If there is only one subwoofer, it doesn’t matter if it is
placed on the left or right side). The low bass sound
output from the subwoofer is not directional and there is
no need to adjust the height. Normally the subwoofer is
placed on the floor. Put it in a position at which it will not
cancel out the bass sound output from the other
speakers. Also note that placing it near a wall may result
in sympathetic vibrations with the building that could
excessively amplify the bass sound.
If the subwoofer must be installed near a wall, place it at
an angle so that it is not parallel to the wall surface. This
can help reduce any sympathetic vibrations, but
depending on the shape of the room this could result in
standing waves. However, even if standing waves are
generated, their influence on the sound quality can be
prevented using the Auto MCACC’s standing wave
control function (page 87).
Adjust so that the front speaker units reproducing midand high frequencies is roughly at the height of the ears.
Step 5: Default settings with the Auto MCACC
Setup (auto sound field correction) function
If the center speaker cannot be set at the same height as
the front speakers, adjust its angle of elevation to point it
to the listening position.
It is more effective to perform the Auto MCACC Setup
(page 41) procedure once the adjustments described
above have been completed.
Set surround speaker 1 so that it is not under the height
of the ears.
Tip
• The distance to the subwoofer may be slightly larger
than the distance actually measured with a tape
measure, etc. This is because this distance is
corrected for electric delay, and is not a problem.

Positional relationship between speakers
and monitor
Position of front speakers and monitor
The front speakers should be as equidistant as possible
to the monitor.
Position of center speaker and monitor
Since mostly dialogs are output from the center speaker,
keeping the center speaker as close as possible to the
screen makes the overall sound more natural. For TVs
using Braun tubes, however, when installing the center
speaker on the floor, adjust its angle of elevation to point
it towards the listening position.
Installation on floor

• If the center speaker is not of the shielded type, install
it away from the TV.
• When installing the center speaker on top of the
monitor, place it facing slightly downwards towards
the listening position.

Surround sound formats
Below is a brief description of the main surround sound
formats you’ll find on DVDs, satellite, cable and
terrestrial broadcasts, and video cassettes.
Dolby
The Dolby technologies are explained below. See
www.dolby.com for more detailed information.
Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is a multichannel digital audio coding
system widely used in cinemas, and in the home for DVD
and digital broadcast soundtracks. It can deliver up to six
discrete audio channels, comprising five full range
channels and a special LFE (low frequency effects)
channel used mainly for deep, rumbling sound effects;
hence the term “5.1-channel” Dolby Digital.
In addition to the format features above, Dolby Digital
decoders offer downmixing for compatibility with mono,
stereo and Dolby Pro Logic audio from a number of bit
rates and channels. Another feature, called Dialog
Normalization, attenuates programs based on the
average level of dialog in a program relative to its peak
level (also known as Dialnorm) in order to achieve
uniform playback level.
Dolby Digital Surround EX
Dolby Digital Surround EX (the EX stands for EXtended)
is an extension of Dolby Digital encoding whereby a
surround back channel is matrixed into the surround left/
right channels for 6.1 channel playback. This allows for
compatibility with Dolby Digital 5.1 channel decoding, as
well as for decoding using Dolby Digital EX.
Dolby Pro Logic IIx and Dolby Surround
Dolby Pro Logic IIx is an improved version of the Dolby
Pro Logic II (and Dolby Pro Logic) decoding system. Using
the innovative “steering logic” circuit, this system
extracts surround sound from sources as follows:
• Dolby Pro Logic – 4.1 channel sound (mono
surround) from any stereo source
• Dolby Pro Logic II – 5.1 channel sound (stereo
surround) from any stereo source
• Dolby Pro Logic IIx – 6.1 or 7.1 channel sound
(stereo surround and surround back) from two
channel or 5.1 (and 6.1) channel sources
With two channel sources, the “.1” subwoofer channel is
generated by bass management in the receiver.
12
Dolby Surround is an encoding system which embeds
surround sound information within a stereo soundtrack,
which a Dolby Pro Logic decoder can then use for
enhanced surround listening with greater sound detail.
Dolby Digital Plus
Dolby Digital Plus is the next-generation audio
technology for all high-definition programming and
media. It combines the efficiency to meet future
broadcast demands with the power and flexibility to
realize the full audio potential expected in the upcoming
high-definition era. Built on Dolby Digital, the multichannel audio standard for DVD and HD broadcasts
worldwide, Dolby Digital Plus was designed for the nextgeneration A/V receivers but remains fully compatible
with all current A/V receivers.
Dolby Digital Plus delivers multi-channel audio programs
of up to 7.1 channels (*) and supports multiple programs
in a single encoded bitstream with the maximum bit rate
potential of up to 6 Mbps and the maximum bit rate
performance of up to 3 Mbps on HD DVD and 1.7 Mbps
on Blu-ray Disc, and it outputs Dolby Digital bitstreams
for playback on existing Dolby Digital systems. Dolby
Digital Plus can accurately reproduce the sound
originally intended by directors and producers.
It also features multi-channel sound with discrete
channel output, interactive mixing and streaming
capability in advanced systems. Supported by HighDefinition Media Interface (HDMI), a single-cable digital
connection is possible for high-definition audio and video.
Dolby TrueHD
Dolby TrueHD is the next-generation lossless encoding
technology developed for high-definition optical discs in
the upcoming era. Dolby TrueHD delivers tantalizing
sound that is bit-for-bit identical to the studio master,
unlocking the true high-definition entertainment
experience on high-definition optical discs in the next
generation. When coupled with high-definition video,
Dolby TrueHD offers an unprecedented home theater
experience with stunning sound and high-definition
picture.
It supports bit rates of up to 18 Mbps and records up to 8
full-range channels (*) individually with 24-bit/96 kHz
audio. It also features extensive metadata including
dialogue normalization and dynamic range control.
Supported by High-Definition Media Interface (HDMI), a
single-cable digital connection is possible for highdefinition audio and video.
HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc standards currently limit their
maximum number of audio channels to eight, whereas
Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby TrueHD support more than
eight audio channels.

DTS-HD Master Audio is a technology that delivers master
audio sources recorded in a professional studio to listeners
without any loss of data, preserving audio quality. DTS-HD
Master Audio adopts variable data transfer rates,
facilitating data transfer to the maximum rate of 24.5 Mbps
in the Blu-ray disc format, 18.0 Mbps in the HD-DVD
format, which by far exceeds that of a standard DVD. These
high data transfer rates enable lossless transmission of 96
kHz/24-bit 7.1-channel audio sources without deteriorating
the quality of the original sound. DTS-HD Master Audio is
an irreplaceable technology that can reproduce sound
faithfully as intended by the creator of music or movies.
DTS Digital Surround
DTS Digital Surround is a 5.1-channel audio coding
system from DTS Inc. now widely used for DVD-Video,
DVD-Audio, 5.1 music discs, digital broadcasts, and
video games. It can deliver up to six discrete audio
channels, comprising five full range channels, including
an LFE channel. Higher sound quality is achieved
through the use of a low compression rate, and high
rates of transmittance during playback.
DTS-ES
DTS-ES (the ES stands for Extended Surround) is a
decoder that is capable of decoding both DTS-ES
Discrete 6.1 and DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 encoded sources.
DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 gives ‘true’ 6.1 channel sound, with
a completely separate (discrete) surround back channel.
DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 has a surround back channel matrixed
into the surround left/right channels. Both sources are
also compatible with a conventional DTS 5.1 channel
decoder.

speakers sound like headphones that lack spaciousness and
envelopment. The surround sounds will also collapse into the closest
speaker as you move away from the middle seating position. Adaptive
Decorrelation slightly changes one surround channel’s time and
phase relationship with respect to the other surround channel. This
expands the listening position and creates—with only two speakers—
the same spacious surround experience as in a movie theatre.
•
Advanced Speaker Array (ASA)
ASA is a proprietary THX technology which processes the sound fed
to 2 side and 2 back surround speakers to provide the optimal
surround sound experience. When you set up your home theater
system using all eight speaker outputs (Left, Center, Right, Surround
Right, Surround Back Right, Surround Back Left, Surround Left and
Subwoofer) placing the two Surround Back speakers close together
facing the front of the room will provide the largest sweet spot. If for
practical reasons you have to place the Surround Back speakers
apart, you will need to go THX Audio Set-up screen and choose the
setting that most closely corresponds to the speaker spacing, which
will re-optimize the surround sound-field.
ASA is used in three new modes; THX Select2 CINEMA, THX Select2
MUSIC and THX Select2 GAMES.
•
Boundary Gain Compensation™
Depending on the listener’s and the subwoofer’s position, the listener
may experience an excessive bass effect. This feature compensates
for excessive bass resulting from a boundary gain effect. This feature
is designed to operate when used with a subwoofer certified to THX
Select2™ specifications.
•
•
THX Cinema processing
THX is an exclusive set of standards and technologies established by
THX Ltd. THX grew from George Lucas’ personal desire to make your
experience of the film soundtrack, in both movie theatres and in your
home theatre, as faithful as possible to what the director intended.
Movie soundtracks are mixed in special movie theatres called
dubbing stages and are designed to be played back in movie theatres
with similar equipment and conditions. This same soundtrack is then
transferred directly onto Laserdisc, VHS tape, DVD, etc., and is not
changed for playback in a small home theatre environment. THX
engineers developed patented technologies to accurately translate
the sound from the movie theatre environment into the home,
correcting the tonal and spatial errors that occur. On this product,
when the THX indicator is on, THX features are automatically added
in Cinema modes (e.g. THX Cinema, THX Surround EX).
•
Re-Equalization
The tonal balance of a film soundtrack will be excessively bright and
harsh when played back over audio equipment in the home because
film soundtracks were designed to be played back in large movie
theaters using very different professional equipment. Re-Equalization
restores the correct tonal balance for watching a movie soundtrack in
a small home environment.
•
Timbre Matching
The human ear changes our perception of a sound depending on the
direction from which the sound is coming. In a movie theatre, there is
an array of surround speakers so that the surround information is all
around you. In a home theatre, you use only two speakers located to the
side of your head. The Timbre Matching feature filters the information
going to the surround speakers so that they more closely match the
tonal characteristics of the sound coming from the front speakers. This
ensures seamless panning between the front and surround speakers.
•
Adaptive Decorrelation
In a movie theatre, a large number of surround speakers help create
an enveloping surround sound experience, but in a home theatre
there are usually only two speakers. This can make the surround
THX Loudness Plus Description
THX Loudness Plus is a new volume control technology featured in
THX Ultra2 Plus™ and THX Select2 Plus™ Certified amplifiers. With
THX Loudness Plus, home theater audiences can now experience the
rich details in a surround mix at any volume level. A consequence of
turning the volume below Reference Level is that certain sound
elements can be lost or perceived differently by the listener. THX
Loudness Plus compensates for the tonal and spatial shifts that occur
when the volume is reduced by intelligently adjusting ambient
surround channel levels and frequency response. This enables users
to experience the true impact of soundtracks regardless of the volume
setting. THX Loudness Plus is automatically applied when listening in
any THX listening mode. The new THX Cinema, THX Music, and THX
Games modes are tailored to apply the proper THX Loudness Plus
settings for each type of content.
•
THX Select2 Plus
Before any home theatre component can be THX Select2 Plus
certified, it must incorporate all the features above and also pass a
rigorous series of quality and performance tests. Only then can a
product feature the THX Select2 Plus logo, which is your guarantee
that the Home Theatre products you purchase will give you superb
performance for many years to come. THX Select2 Plus requirements
cover every aspect of the product including pre-amplifier and power
amplifier performance and operation, and hundreds of other
parameters in both the digital and analog domain.
•
THX Surround EX
THX Surround EX - Dolby Digital Surround EX is a joint development
of Dolby Laboratories and the THX Ltd. In a movie theater, film
soundtracks that have been encoded with Dolby Digital Surround EX
technology are able to reproduce an extra channel which has been
added during the mixing of the program. This channel, called
Surround Back, places sounds behind the listener in addition to the
currently available front left, front center, front right, surround right,
surround left and subwoofer channels. This additional channel
provides the opportunity for more detailed imaging behind the
listener and brings more depth, spacious ambience and sound
localization than ever before. Movies that were created using the
Dolby Digital Surround EX technology, when released into the home

consumer market may exhibit wording to that effect on the
packaging. A list of movies created using this technology can be
found on the Dolby web site at www.dolby.com.
Only amplifier and controller products bearing the THX Surround EX
logo, when in the THX Surround EX mode, faithfully reproduce this
new technology in the home.
This product may also engage the “THX Surround EX” mode during
the playback of 5.1 channel material that is not Dolby Digital
Surround EX encoded. In such case the information delivered to the
Surround Back channel will be program dependent and may or may
not be very pleasing depending on the particular soundtrack and the
tastes of the individual listener.

For the replay of stereo and multi-channel game audio the THX
Games Mode should be selected. In this mode THX ASA processing
is applied to the surround channels of all 5.1 and 2.0 encoded game
sources such as analog, PCM, DTS and Dolby Digital. This accurately
places all game audio surround information, providing a full 360
degree playback environment. THX Games Mode is unique as it gives
you a smooth transition of audio in all points of the surround field.

We Want You Listening For A Lifetime
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit
you’ve just purchased is only the start of your
musical enjoyment. Now it’s time to consider how
you can maximize the fun and excitement your
equipment offers. This manufacturer and the
Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer
Electronics Group want you to get the most out of
your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that
lets the sound come through loud and clear without
annoying blaring or distortion-and, most importantly,
without affecting your sensitive hearing.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing
“comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound.
So what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and
harmful to your hearing. Guard against this by
setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your
hearing adapts.
Used wisely, your new sound equipment will
provide a lifetime of fun and enjoyment. Since
hearing damage from loud noise is often
undetectable until it is too late, this manufacturer
and the Electronic Industries Association’s
Consumer Electronics Group recommend you avoid
prolonged exposure to excessive noise. This list of
sound levels is included for your protection.
Decibel
Level Example
30
40
50
60
70
80
Quiet library, soft whispers
Living room, refrigerator, bedroom away from traffic
Light traffic, normal conversation, quiet office
Air conditioner at 20 feet, sewing machine
Vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, noisy restaurant
Average city traffic, garbage disposals, alarm clock
at two feet.
THE FOLLOWING NOISES CAN BE DANGEROUS
UNDER CONSTANT EXPOSURE
To establish a safe level:
• Start your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it
comfortably and clearly, and without distortion.
90 Subway, motorcycle, truck traffic, lawn mower
100 Garbage truck, chain saw, pneumatic drill
120 Rock band concert in front of speakers,
thunderclap
140 Gunshot blast, jet plane
180 Rocket launching pad
Once you have established a comfortable sound
level:
• Set the dial and leave it there.

Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent
hearing damage or loss in the future. After all, we
want you listening for a lifetime.
