Front left and right speakers
The front speakers are used for the main source sound plus effect sounds. Place these speakers at an equal distance from the ideal listening position.
The distance of each speaker from each side of the video monitor should be the same.
Center speaker
The center speaker is for the center channel sounds (dialog, vocals, etc.). If for some reason it is not practical to use a center speaker, you can
do without it. Best results, however, are obtained with the full system.
Surround left and right speakers
The surround speakers are used for effect and surround sounds.
Surround back left and right speakers
The surround back speakers supplement the surround speakers and provide more realistic front-to-back transitions.
Front and rear presence left and right speakers

Using di-pole speakers
FL
It is recommended that you use di-pole speakers for surround left
and right channels for the accurate playback with the THX
surround modes. When you use di-pole speakers, place the
surround and surround back speakers as below. Set the distance
between surround back speakers rather narrow compared with the
conventional speaker layout.

Surround back left and right speakers
The surround back speakers supplement the surround speakers and
provide more realistic front-to-back transitions.
If you use a single surround back speaker, connect the single
surround back speaker to the SUR.BACK/BI-AMP (SINGLE)
speaker terminal and place the speaker behind the listening position.
The surround back left and right channel signals are mixed down
and output at the single surround back speaker when you set
“Surround Back” to “Small x1” or “Large x1” (see page 84).
Surround left and right speakers
Connect the surround speakers to the SURROUND speaker
terminals even if you place the surround speakers behind the
listening position. For the smooth and unbroken sound field behind
the listening position, place the surround left and right speakers
farther back compared with the placement in the 11.2/11.1-channel
speaker layout. The surround back channel signals are directed to
the surround left and right speakers when “Surround Back” is set to
“None” (see page 84).
Subwoofer
See page 25 for details.

See page 25 for details.
y
You can also use the front presence speakers (see page 26) instead of the
surround back speakers.
For other speaker combinations
You can enjoy multi-channel sources with sound field programs by using a speaker combination other than the speaker combinations
shown above.
Use the automatic setup feature (see page 42) or set the “Speaker Set” parameters in “Manual Setup” (see page 84) to output the surround
sounds at the connected speakers.

Connecting speakers
Be sure to connect the left channel (L), right channel (R), “+” (red line) and “–” (white line) properly. If the connections are faulty, this unit
cannot reproduce the input sources accurately.
Caution
Notes
• A speaker cord is actually a pair of insulated cables running side by side. Cables are colored or shaped differently, perhaps with a stripe, groove or ridge.
Connect the striped (grooved, etc.) cable to the “+” (red line) terminals on this unit and your speaker. Connect the plain cable to the “–” (white line)
terminals.
• You can use the REAR ZONE/PRESENCE, FRONT ZONE/PRESENCE, and/or EXTRA SP speaker terminals for the Zone 2, Zone 3, and/or Zone 4
speakers (see page 116). You can also use all speaker terminals on this unit for the Zone 2, Zone 3, and/or Zone 4 speakers (see page 120).

Using subwoofers
The use of subwoofers with built-in amplifiers, such as the Yamaha Active Servo Processing Subwoofer System, is effective not only for
reinforcing bass frequencies from any or all channels, but also for reproducing the high fidelity sound of the LFE (low-frequency effect)
channel included in digital audio signals. Turn it slightly toward the center of the room to reduce wall reflections.
You can use one or two subwoofers and select various positions of the subwoofers.
■ Configuration 2:
Front and rear
■ Configuration 3:
A single subwoofer
Set “Configuration” in “Subwoofer” to
“Stereo” (see page 85).
Set “Configuration” in “Subwoofer” to
“Front & Rear” (see page 85).

Using presence speakers
The presence speakers supplement the sound from the front and surround back speakers with extra ambient effects produced by the sound
field programs (see page 54). Presence speakers function more effectively when the CINEMA DSP HD³ mode is active (see page 60). You
can adjust the vertical position of dialogues with using the front presence speakers (see page 77).
Note
If “Front Presence” is set to “None”, the rear presence speakers also do not function and you cannot activate the CINEMA DSP HD³ mode.

■ Connecting external amplifiers
This unit has more than enough power for any home use. However,
if you want to use external amplifiers, connect the external
amplifiers to the PRE OUT jacks. Each PRE OUT jack outputs the
same channel signals as the corresponding SPEAKERS terminals.
y
• When you select the component connected to the MULTI CH INPUT
jacks as the input source (see page 50), this unit automatically turns off the
digital sound field processor, and you cannot select sound field programs.
• The audio signals input at the CENTER and SUBWOOFER MULTI CH
INPUT jacks are mixed down to the left and right headphone channels.
• This unit redirects the audio signals input at the CENTER and/or
SUBWOOFER MULTI CH INPUT jacks to the front left and right speaker
channels when you set “Center” and/or “Configuration” in “Speaker Set”
to “None” (see page 84). We recommend that you connect at least a 5.1channel speaker system before using this feature.
Pre-amplifier mode
If you want use the external amplifiers for the all channels in the
main zone, set “PREAMP MODE” to “ON” in the advanced
setup (see page 120). When “PREAMP MODE” is set to “ON”,
the power consumption is reduced.

Recording
Recording adjustments and other operations are performed from the recording components. Refer to the operating instructions for those
components.
Caution
The DTS signal is a digital bitstream. Attempting to digitally record the DTS bitstream will result in noise being recorded. Therefore, if
you want to use this unit to record sources encoded in DTS, the following considerations and adjustments need to be made. To play DTSencoded DVDs and CDs (when using a digital audio connection) on your DTS-compatible player, follow its operating instructions to
make a setting so that the analog signal will be output from the player.
Notes
• When this unit is set to the standby mode, you cannot record between other components connected to this unit.
• TONE CONTROL (see page 61) and the volume settings, the speaker level (see page 86) and the sound field programs (see page 54) do not affect recorded
material.
• When this unit is in the Pure Direct mode, no signals output at the AUDIO OUT jacks.
• The source connected to the MULTI CH INPUT jacks on this unit cannot be recorded.
• The Internet Radio, PC or MCX audio signals are only output at the analog AUDIO OUT jacks.
• Digital signals input at the DIGITAL INPUT jacks are not output at the analog AUDIO OUT jacks for recording. Likewise, analog signals input at the
AUDIO IN jacks are not output at the DIGITAL OUTPUT jack. Therefore, if your source component is connected to provide only digital or analog signals,
you can only record digital or analog signals.
• A given input source is not output on the same AUDIO OUT channel.
• S-video and composite video signals pass independently through the video circuits of this unit. Therefore, when recording or dubbing video signals input
from a video source component that provides only an S-video or a composite video signal, you can record only an S-video or a composite video signal on
your VCR.
• The analog audio and video signals input at the DOCK terminal can be output at the analog AUDIO OUT jacks and DVR or VCR OUT jacks for recording.
• Check the copyright laws in your country to record from CDs, radio, etc. Recording of copyrighted material may infringe copyright laws.

■ Basic configuration of sound field programs
Each sound field program has some parameters defining the
characteristics of the program. To customize the selected sound
field program, adjust “DSP Level” and/or “Dialogue Lift” first, and
then try other parameters.
Adjusting the effect sound level of the sound field
programs (DSP Level)
Sound field programs add effect sounds (DSP effect sounds) to the
original source sound to create sound field in the listening room.
Use the “DSP Level” parameter to adjust the level of the effect
sounds.

Operation
Adjust “DSP Level” as follows:
• “Dialogue Lift” is available when “Front Presence” is set to “Yes” (see page 84) and
headphones are not connected.
• You cannot move the dialogue position down from the initial dialogue position.
Increase the value of “DSP Level” when
• the effect sound of the selected sound field program is too
weak.
• you cannot recognize any difference between the sound field
programs.
Decrease the value of “DSP Level” when
• the sound is vague.
• you feel that the additional sound effect is excessive.

Initial delay. Presence, surround, and surround back sound field initial delay. Changes the apparent size of the sound field by adjusting the
delay between the direct sound and the first reflection heard by the listener. The smaller the value, the smaller the sound field seems to the
listener.
y
When you adjust the initial delay parameters, we also recommend that you adjust the corresponding room size parameters likewise. This adjustment
is especially effective for the CINEMA DSP programs.

Room size. Presence, surround, and surround back room size. Adjusts the apparent size of the sound field. The larger the value, the larger
the surround sound field becomes. As the sound is repeatedly reflected around a room, the larger the hall is, the longer the time between
the original reflected sound and the subsequent reflections. By controlling the time between the reflected sounds, you can change the
apparent size of the virtual venue. Changing this parameter from one to two doubles the apparent length of the room.

Liveness. Surround and surround back liveness. Adjusts the reflectivity of the virtual walls in the hall by changing the rate at which the
early reflections decay. The early reflections of a sound source decay much faster in a room with acoustically absorbent wall surfaces than
in one which has highly reflective surfaces. A room with acoustically absorbent surfaces is referred to as “dead”, while a room with highly
reflective surfaces is referred to as “live”. This parameter lets you adjust the early reflection decay rate and thus the “liveness” of the room.

Choice
Functions
On
Converts composite, S-video, and component video
signals interchangeably and up-converts composite, Svideo, and component video signals to HDMI video
signals.
Off
Does not convert any signals.
Notes
• For optimal video performance, THX Ltd. recommends that you set “Conversion” to
“Off” to allow video signals to pass through the system without processing (e.g.,
video signals input at the COMPONENT VIDEO jacks are output at the
COMPONENT VIDEO MONITOR OUT jacks without any processing).
• The converted video signals are only output at the MONITOR OUT jacks. When
recording a video source, you must make the same type of video connections between
each component.
• When composite video or S-video signals from a VCR are converted into component
video signals, the picture quality may suffer depending on your VCR.
• If “Conversion” is set to “Off”, the “Component I/P”, “HDMI Resolution”, “HDMI
Processing”, “HDMI Aspect”, and “Short Message” features are deactivated.
• Set “Conversion” to “On” to display the short message.
• This unit does not convert 480 line video signals and 576 line video signals
interchangeably.
• The analog component video signals with 480i (NTSC)/576i (PAL) of resolution are
converted into the S-video or composite video signals and output at the S VIDEO
MONITOR OUT and VIDEO MONITOR OUT jacks.
• Even when “Conversion” is set to “On”, HDMI digital signals are not converted to
analog video signals.
• This unit cannot convert the signals input at the VIDEO or S VIDEO jacks and
displays the video images correctly depending on the input source component and the
source played on the component. In such cases, set “Conversion” to “Off”.
• When non-standard video signals (such as video signals from a video game console)
are input, this unit does not display short messages in the video monitor even if
“Conversion” is set to “On”.
• When the analog component video signals with 480p/576p of resolution are input at
the COMPONENT VIDEO jacks and the video monitor is connected to the VIDEO
MONITOR OUT or S VIDEO MONITOR OUT jack on this unit, the GUI screen is
not displayed in the video monitor.

Using multi-zone configuration
Using multi-zone configuration
This unit allows you to configure a multi-zone audio/video system.
The multi-zone configuration feature enables you to set this unit to
reproduce separate input sources in the main zone, second zone
(Zone 2), third zone (Zone 3), and forth zone (Zone 4). You can
control this unit from the second, third, or forth zone using the
supplied remote control.
Step 1: Planning the multi-zone system
First, plan the total multi-zone system with this unit
carefully.
☞ P. 111
Step 2: Connecting the speakers and/
or external amplifiers
Wire cables between rooms and connect the component
and speakers to this unit.
☞ P. 112
Once you have finished the connections, turn on this unit
and then set the parameters in “Multi Zone” menu (see
page 91).
– Use “Zone SP Assign” to designate the speaker
terminals on this unit to each zone.
☞ P. 116
– Use “Zone2 Set”, “Zone3 Set”, or “Zone4 Set”
parameters to set the volume settings and other
functions in each zone.
☞ P. 91
This unit can control the audio and video system in the main zone
and up to 3 optional zone (Zone 2, Zone 3, and Zone 4), and you can
use the internal amplifiers or external amplifiers in Zone 2, Zone 3,
or Zone 4.
The multi-zone system configuration differs depending on your
requirements and equipment. Before connecting the speakers and/or
external amplifiers for the multi-zone configuration, plan the total
design of your multi-zone system.
When you plan the system, consider the following points:
1. Do you want to use the internal amplifiers of this unit or
external amplifiers?
2. How many zones do you want to use this unit for?
3. How many channels do you want to use in the main zone?
4. If you use the internal amplifiers for the other zones, you
cannot use some channels in the main zone in some cases.
5. How many speakers do you have?
6. Do you want to use the visual sources other than the main
zone?
y
Since there are many possible ways to connect and use this unit in a multi-zone
configuration, we recommend that you consult with your nearest authorized Yamaha
dealer or service center for the planning and setup of the multi-zone system that best
meet your requirements.
Pre-amplifier mode
If you want use the external amplifiers for the all channels in the
main zone, you can use all the speaker terminals on this unit for
Zone 2, Zone 3, and/or Zone 4 (Pre-amplifier mode). Set
“PREAMP MODE” to “ON” in the advanced setup (see
page 120).
In the following instruction, following system configuration is the
example. When you use this system configuration, you can enjoy
7.2-channel playback in the main zone and 2-channel playback in
the optional two zones. You can also enjoy 5.2-channel playback in
the main zone and 2-channel playback in the optional three zones.

Using multi-zone configuration
Step2: Connecting the speakers, external amplifiers, and/or other components
You need the following additional equipment to use the multi-room functions of this unit:
• An infrared signal receiver in Zone 2, Zone 3, and/or Zone 4.
• An infrared emitter in the main room. This emitter transmits the infrared signals from the remote control in Zone 2, Zone 3, and/or Zone
4 to the main room (to a CD player or DVD player, for example).
• An amplifier and speakers for Zone 2, Zone 3, and/or Zone 4.
• A video monitor for the second room.
■ Using the internal amplifier of this unit
Important safety notice
The speaker terminals of this amplifier should not be connected to a Passive Loudspeaker Selector Box or more than one loudspeaker per
channel.
Connection to a Passive Loudspeaker Selector Box or multiple speakers per channel could create an abnormally low impedance load
resulting in amplifier damage. See this owner’s manual for correct usage.
Compliance with minimum speaker impedance information for all channels must be maintained at all times. This information is found on
the back panel of your amplifier.
To make the system of the example, connect the speakers in the
main zone and other zones as follows:

■ Audio and video synchronization (lip sync)
■ Dolby Pro Logic IIx
Lip sync, an abbreviation for lip synchronization, is a technical term that involves both
a problem and a capability of maintaining audio and video signals synchronized during
post-production and transmission. Whereas the audio and video latency requires
complex end-user adjustments, HDMI version 1.3 incorporates an automatic audio and
video syncing capability that allows devices to perform this synchronization
automatically and accurately without user interaction.
Dolby Pro Logic IIx is a new technology enabling discrete multi-channel playback
from 2-channel or multi-channel sources. There are three modes available: “Music
mode” for music sources, “Movie mode” for movie sources (for 2-channel sources
only) and “Game mode” for game sources.
■ Bi-amplification connection
Dolby Surround uses a 4-channel analog recording system to reproduce realistic and
dynamic sound effects: 2 front left and right channels (stereo), a center channel for
dialog (monaural), and a surround channel for special sound effects (monaural). The
surround channel reproduces sound within a narrow frequency range. Dolby Surround
is widely used with nearly all video tapes and laser discs, and in many TV and cable
broadcasts as well. The Dolby Pro Logic decoder built into this unit employs a digital
signal processing system that automatically stabilizes the volume on each channel to
enhance moving sound effects and directionality.
A bi-amplification connection uses two amplifiers for a speaker. One amplifier is
connected to the woofer section of a loudspeaker while the other is connected to the
combined mid and tweeter section. With this arrangement each amplifier operates over
a restricted frequency range. This restricted range presents each amplifier with a much
simpler job and each amplifier is less likely to influence the sound in some way. The
internal crossover of the speaker consists of a LPF (low pass filter) and a HPF (high
pass filter). As its name implies, the LPF passes frequencies below a cutoff and rejects
frequencies above the cutoff frequency. Likewise, the HPF passes frequencies above its
cutoff.
■ Component video signal
With the component video signal system, the video signal is separated into the Y signal
for the luminance and the PB and PR signals for the chrominance. Color can be
reproduced more faithfully with this system because each of these signals is
independent. The component signal is also called the “color difference signal” because
the luminance signal is subtracted from the color signal. A monitor with component
input jacks is required in order to output component signals.
■ Composite video signal
With the composite video signal system, the video signal is composed of three basic
elements of a video picture: color, brightness and synchronization data. A composite
video jack on a video component transmits these three elements combined.
■ Deep Color
Deep Color refers to the use of various color depths in displays, up from the 24-bit
depths in previous versions of the HDMI specification. This extra bit depth allows
HDTVs and other displays go from millions of colors to billions of colors and eliminate
on-screen color banding for smooth tonal transitions and subtle gradations between
colors. The increased contrast ratio can represent many times more shades of gray
between black and white. Also Deep Color increases the number of available colors
within the boundaries defined by the RGB or YCbCr color space.
■ Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is a digital surround sound system that gives you completely independent
multi-channel audio. With 3 front channels (front L/R and center), and 2 surround
stereo channels, Dolby Digital provides 5 full-range audio channels. With an additional
channel especially for bass effects, called LFE (Low Frequency Effect), the system has
a total of 5.1-channels (LFE is counted as 0.1 channel). By using 2-channel stereo for
the surround speakers, more accurate moving sound effects and surround sound
environment are possible than with Dolby Surround. The wide dynamic range from
maximum to minimum volume reproduced by the 5 full-range channels and the precise
sound orientation generated using digital sound processing provide listeners with
unprecedented excitement and realism. With this unit, any sound environment from
monaural up to a 5.1-channel configuration can be freely selected for your enjoyment.
■ Dolby Digital EX
Dolby Digital EX creates 6 full-bandwidth output channels from 5.1-channel sources.
This is done using a matrix decoder that derives 3 surround channels from the 2 in the
original recording. For the best results, Dolby Digital EX should be used with movie
sound tracks recorded with Dolby Digital Surround EX. With this additional channel,
you can experience more dynamic and realistic moving sound especially with scenes
with “fly-over” and “fly-around” effects.
■ Dolby Digital Plus
Dolby Digital Plus is an advanced audio technology developed for high-definition
programming and media including HD broadcasts, HD DVD, and Blu-ray Disc.
Selected as a mandatory audio standard for HD DVD and as an optional audio standard
for Blu-ray Disc, this technology delivers multichannel sound with discrete channel
output. Supporting bitrates up to 6.0 Mbps, Dolby Digital Plus can carry up to 7.1
discreet audio channels simultaneously. Supported by HDMI version 1.3 and designed
for the optical disc players and AV receivers/amplifiers of the future, Dolby Digital Plus
also remains fully compatible with the existing multichannel audio systems that
incorporate Dolby Digital.
■ Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II is an improved technique used to decode vast numbers of existing
Dolby Surround sources. This new technology enables a discrete 5-channel playback
with 2 front left and right channels, 1 center channel, and 2 surround left and right
channels instead of only 1 surround channel for conventional Pro Logic technology.
There are three modes available: “Music mode” for music sources, “Movie mode” for
movie sources and “Game mode” for game sources.

■ Dolby Surround
■ Dolby TrueHD
Dolby TrueHD is an advanced lossless audio technology developed for high-definition
disc-based media including HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc. Selected as a mandatory audio
standard for HD DVD and as an optional audio standard for Blu-ray Disc, this
technology delivers sound that is bit-for-bit identical to the studio master, offering a
high-definition home theater experience. Supporting bitrates up to 18.0 Mbps, Dolby
TrueHD can carry up to 8 discrete channels of 24-bit/96 kHz audio simultaneously.
Supported by HDMI version 1.3 and designed for the optical disc players and AV
receivers/amplifiers of the future, Dolby TrueHD also remains fully compatible with
the existing multichannel audio systems and retains the metadata capability of Dolby
Digital, allowing dialog normalization and dynamic range control.
■ DSD
Direct Stream Digital (DSD) technology stores audio signals on digital storage media,
such as Super Audio CDs. Using DSD, signals are stored as single bit values at a highfrequency sampling rate of 2.8224 MHz, while noise shaping and oversampling are
used to reduce distortion, a common occurrence with very high quantization of audio
signals. Due to the high sampling rate, better audio quality can be achieved than that
offered by the PCM format used for normal audio CDs.
■ DTS 96/24
DTS 96/24 offers an unprecedented level of audio quality for multi-channel sound on
DVD video, and is fully backward-compatible with all DTS decoders. “96” refers to a
96 kHz sampling rate compared to the typical 48 kHz sampling rate. “24” refers to 24bit word length.
DTS 96/24 offers sound quality transparent to the original 96/24 master, and 96/24 5.1channel sound with full-quality full-motion video for music programs and motion
picture soundtracks on DVD video.
■ DTS Digital Surround
DTS digital surround was developed to replace the analog soundtracks of movies with a
6.1-channel digital sound track, and is now rapidly gaining popularity in movie theaters
around the world. DTS, Inc. has developed a home theater system so that you can enjoy
the depth of sound and natural spatial representation of DTS digital surround in your
home. This system produces practically distortion-free 6-channel sound (technically,
front left and right, center, surround left and right, and LFE 0.1 (subwoofer) channels
for a total of 5.1 channels). This unit incorporates a DTS-ES decoder that enables 6.1channel reproduction by adding the surround back channel to the existing 5.1-channel
format.
■ DTS Express
DTS Express is an advanced audio technology for the optional feature on Blu-ray Disc
or HD DVD, which offers high-quality, low bit rate audio optimized for network
streaming, and Internet applications. DTS Express is used for the Secondary Audio
feature of Blu-ray Disc or the Sub Audio feature of HD DVD. These features deliver
audio commentaries (for example, the additional commentaries made by the director of
a film) on demand by the users via the Internet, etc. DTS Express signals are mixed
down with the main audio stream on the player component, and the component sends
the mixed audio stream to the AV receivers/amplifiers via digital coaxial, digital
optical, or analog connections.
■ DTS-HD Master Audio
DTS-HD Master Audio is an advanced lossless audio technology developed for highdefinition disc-based media including HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc. Selected as a
mandatory audio standard for both HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc, this technology delivers
sound that is bit-for-bit identical to the studio master, offering a high-definition home
theater experience. Supporting bitrates up to 18.0 Mbps for HD DVD and up to 24.5
Mbps for Blu-ray Disc, DTS-HD Master Audio can carry up to 7.1 discrete channels of
24-bit/96 kHz audio simultaneously. Supported by HDMI version 1.3 and designed for
the optical disc players and AV receivers/amplifiers of the future, DTS-HD Master
Audio also remains fully compatible with the existing multichannel audio systems that
incorporate DTS Digital Surround.

■ DTS-HD High Resolution Audio
■ WMA
DTS-HD High Resolution Audio is an high resolution audio technology developed for
high-definition disc-based media including HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc. Selected as an
optional audio standard for both HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc, this technology delivers
sound that is virtually indistinguishable from the original, offering a high-definition
home theater experience. Supporting bitrates up to 3.0 Mbps for HD DVD and 6.0
Mbps for Blu-ray Disc, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio can carry up to 7.1 discrete
channels of 24-bit/96 kHz audio simultaneously. Supported by HDMI version 1.3 and
designed for the optical disc players and AV receivers/amplifiers of the future, DTS-HD
High Resolution Audio also remains fully compatible with the existing multichannel
audio systems that incorporate DTS Digital Surround.
An audio compression method developed by Microsoft Corporation. It employs the
irreversible compression method, which achieves a high compression rate by thinning
out the data of hardly audible part to the human ears. It is said to be capable of
compressing the data quantity by about 1/22 (64 kbps) while maintaining a similar
audio quality to music CD.
■ HDMI
■ xvYCC
A color space standard supported by HDMI version 1.3. It is a more extensive color
space than sRGB, and allows the expression of colors that could not be expressed
before. While remaining compatible with the color gamut of sRGB standards, xvYCC
expands the color space and can thus produce more vivid, natural images. It is
particularly effective for still pictures and computer graphics.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the first industry-supported,
uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface. Providing an interface between any
source (such as a set-top box or AV receiver) and an audio/video monitor (such as a
digital television), HDMI supports standard, enhanced or high-definition video as well
as multi-channel digital audio using a single cable. HDMI transmits all ATSC HDTV
standards and supports 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to
accommodate future enhancements and requirements.
When used in combination with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection),
HDMI provides a secure audio/video interface that meets the security requirements of
content providers and system operators. For further information on HDMI, visit the
HDMI website at “http://www.hdmi.org/”.
■ LFE 0.1 channel
This channel reproduces low-frequency signals. The frequency range of this channel is
from 20 Hz to 120 Hz. This channel is counted as 0.1 because it only enforces a lowfrequency range compared to the full-range reproduced by the other 5/6 channels in
Dolby Digital or DTS 5.1/6.1-channel systems.
■ MP3
One of the audio compression methods used by MPEG. It employs the irreversible
compression method, which achieves a high compression rate by thinning out the data
of hardly audible part to the human ears. It is said to be capable of compressing the data
quantity by about 1/11 (128 kbps) while maintaining a similar audio quality to music
CD.
■ MPEG-4 AAC
An MPEG-4 audio standard. As it allows compression of data at a bit rate lower than
that of MPEG-2 AAC, it is used among others for mobile telephones, portable audio
players and other low-capacity devices requiring high sound quality.
In addition to the above types of devices, MPEG-4 AAC is also used to distribute
contents on the Internet, and as such is supported by computers, media servers and
many other devices.
■ Neo:6
Neo:6 decodes the conventional 2-channel sources for 6- channel playback by the
specific decoder. It enables playback with the full-range channels with higher
separation just like digital discrete signal playback. There are two modes available:
“Music mode” for music sources and “Cinema mode” for movie sources.
Additional
Information
■ PCM (Linear PCM)
Linear PCM is a signal format under which an analog audio signal is digitized,
recorded and transmitted without using any compression. This is used as a method of
recording CDs and DVD audio. The PCM system uses a technique for sampling the
size of the analog signal per very small unit of time. Standing for “Pulse Code
Modulation”, the analog signal is encoded as pulses and then modulated for recording.
■ Sampling frequency and number of quantized
bits
When digitizing an analog audio signal, the number of times the signal is sampled per
second is called the sampling frequency, while the degree of fineness when converting
the sound level into a numeric value is called the number of quantized bits. The range
of rates that can be played back is determined based on the sampling rate, while the
dynamic range representing the sound level difference is determined by the number of
quantized bits. In principle, the higher the sampling frequency, the wider the range of
frequencies that can be played back, and the higher the number of quantized bits, the
more finely the sound level can be reproduced.
■ S-video signal
With the S-video signal system, the video signal normally transmitted using a pin cable
is separated and transmitted as the Y signal for the luminance and the C signal for the
chrominance through the S-video cable. Using the S VIDEO jack eliminates video
signal transmission loss and allows recording and playback of even more beautiful
images.
■ WAV
Windows standard audio file format, which defines the method of recording the digital
data obtained by converting audio signals. It does not specify the compression (coding)
method so a desired compression method can be used with it. By default, it is
compatible with the PCM method (no compression) and some compression methods
including the ADPCM method.

THX Cinema mode
In this mode, THX Loudness Plus is designed around the industry-standard reference
mixing level as well as adding other proprietary THX technologies such as Adaptive
Decorrelation, Re-EQ, and Timbre Matching to recreate the theatrical experience at
home.
■ THX Music mode
THX Music modes provide the appropriate THX processing to enhance music
listening. THX Music applies a dedicated music profile of THX Loudness Plus,
designed around the varying mix levels in music sources which are often very different
than film or television sources. Additionally, THX Music applies Timbre Matching to
the surround speaker channels.
■ THX Games mode
THX Games mode gives the benefit of THX Loudness Plus, as well as other THX
proprietary features which provide the gamer with a more accurate listening experience
at lower levels, while maintaining all of the directional cues critical to gameplay.
■ 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 receiver 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.
■ THX Ultra2 Cinema mode
THX Ultra2 Cinema mode plays 5.1 movies using all 8 speakers giving you the best
possible movie watching experience. In this mode, ASA processing blends the side
surround speakers and back surround speakers providing the optimal mix of ambient
and directional surround sounds. This mode permits the playback of a non Surround
EX/ES encoded 5.1 movie to be played back over a 7.1 system. DTS-ES (Matrix and
6.1 Discrete) and Dolby Digital Surround EX encoded soundtracks will be
automatically detected, if the appropriate flag has been encoded. Some Dolby Digital
Surround EX soundtracks are missing the digital flag that allows automatic switching.
If you know that the movie that you are watching is encoded in Surround EX, you can
manually select the THX Surround EX playback mode, otherwise THX Ultra2 Cinema
mode will apply ASA processing to provide optimum replay.
■ THX Ultra2 Music mode
For the playback of multi-channel music the THX Ultra2 Music mode should be
selected. In this mode THX ASA processing is applied to the surround channels of all
5.1 encoded music sources such as DTS, Dolby Digital and DVD-Audio to provide a
wide stable rear soundstage.
■ THX Ultra2 Games mode
■ THX Ultra2
Before any home theatre component can be THX Ultra2 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 Ultra logo, which is your guarantee that the
Home Theatre products you purchase will give you superb performance for many years
to come. THX Ultra2 requirements cover every aspect of the product including preamplifier performance and operation, and hundreds of other parameters in both the
digital and analog domain.
■ THX Cinema processing
THX is an exclusive set of standards and technologies established by the worldrenowned film production company, Lucasfilm 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 “THX” appears in the front panel display, THX features are
automatically added in Cinema modes (e.g. THX Cinema, THX Surround EX).
130 En
For the playback of stereo and multi-channel game audio the THX Ultra2 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 Ultra2 Games mode is unique as it gives
you a smooth transition of audio in all points of the surround field.
■ THX Loudness Plus
THX Loudness Plus is a new volume control technology featured in THX Ultra2
Plus™ and THX Select2 Plus™ Certified receivers. 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.
Glossary
■ 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 theatres using very different professional equipment.
Re-Equalization restores the correct tonal balance for watching a movie soundtrack in a
small home environment.
■ Adaptive Decorrelation
In a movie theatre, a large number of surround speakers help create an enveloping
surround sound experience, but in a home theatre there are usually only two speakers.
This can make the surround speakers sound like headphones that lack spaciousness and
envelopment. The surround sounds will also collapse into the closest speaker as you
move away from the middle seating position. Adaptive Decorrelation slightly changes
one surround channel’s time 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.
■ 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.
■ BGC (Boundary Gain Compensation)
If your chosen listening room layout (for practical or aesthetic reasons) results in the
most of the listeners being close to the rear wall, the resulting bass level can be
sufficiently reinforced by the boundary that the overall sound quality becomes
“boomy”. THX Ultra2 receivers and controllers contain the BGC (Boundary Gain
Compensation) feature to provide an improved bass balance. “Bndry Gain Comp” can
be selected by setting “THX Ultra2 SWFR” to “Yes” in “THX Set” of “Manual Setup”.
■ ASA (Advanced Speaker Array)
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), be sure to go to the “THX Set” screen and choose the setting that most
closely corresponds to the speaker spacing, which will re-optimize the surround soundfield.
ASA is used in three modes; THX Ultra2 Cinema, THX Ultra2 Music and THX Ultra2
Games.
■ Dialogue normalization
■ Elements of a sound field
What really creates the rich, full tones of a live instrument are the multiple reflections
from the walls of the room. In addition to making the sound live, these reflections
enable us to tell where the player is situated as well as the size and shape of the room in
which we are sitting.
There are two distinct types of sound reflections that combine to make up the sound
field in addition to the direct sound coming straight to our ears from the player’s
instrument.
Early reflections
Reflected sounds reach our ears extremely rapidly (50 ms to 100 ms after the direct
sound), after reflecting from one surface only (for example, from a wall or the ceiling).
Early reflections actually add clarity to the direct sound.
Reverberations
These are caused by reflections from more than one surface (for example, from the
walls, and the ceiling) so numerous that they merge together to form a continuous sonic
afterglow. They are non-directional and lessen the clarity of the direct sound.
Direct sound, early reflections and subsequent reverberations taken together help us to
determine the subjective size and shape of the room, and it is this information that the
digital sound field processor reproduces in order to create sound fields.
If you could create the appropriate early reflections and subsequent reverberations in
your listening room, you would be able to create your own listening environment. The
acoustics in your room could be changed to those of a concert hall, a dance floor, or a
room with virtually any size at all. This ability to create sound fields at will is exactly
what Yamaha has done with the digital sound field processor.
■ CINEMA DSP
Since the Dolby Surround and DTS systems were originally designed for use in movie
theaters, their effect is best felt in a theater having many speakers designed for acoustic
effects. Since home conditions, such as room size, wall material, number of speakers,
and so on, can differ so widely, it is inevitable that there are differences in the sound
heard. Based on a wealth of actually measured data, Yamaha CINEMA DSP provides
the audiovisual experience of a movie theater in the listening room of your own home
by using the Yamaha original sound field technology combined with various digital
audio systems.
■ CINEMA DSP HD³
The actually measured sound field data contain the information of the height of the
sound images. CINEMA DSP HD³ feature achieves the reproduction of the accurate
height of the sound images so that it creates the accurate and intensive stereoscopic
sound fields in a listening room.
■ SILENT CINEMA
Yamaha has developed a natural, realistic sound effect DSP algorithm for headphones.
Parameters for headphones have been set for each sound field so that accurate
representations of all the sound field programs can be enjoyed on headphones.
■ Virtual CINEMA DSP
Yamaha has developed a Virtual CINEMA DSP algorithm that allows you to enjoy DSP
sound field surround effects even without any surround speakers by using virtual
surround speakers. It is even possible to enjoy Virtual CINEMA DSP using a minimal
two-speaker system that does not include a center speaker.
■ Compressed Music Enhancer
The Compressed Music Enhancer feature of this unit enhances your listening
experience by regenerating the missing harmonics in a compression artifact. As a result,
flattened complexity due to the loss of high-frequency fidelity as well as lack of bass
due to the loss of low-frequency bass is compensated, providing improved performance
of the overall sound system.

Additional
Information
Dialogue Normalization (Dial Norm) is a feature of Dolby Digital, which is used to
keep the programs at the same average listening level so the user does not have to
change the volume control between Dolby Digital programs.
When playing back software which has been encoded in Dolby Digital, sometimes you
may see a brief message in the front panel display which will read “Dial Norm X dB”
(X being a numeric value). The display is showing how the program level relates with
THX calibration level. If you want to play the program at calibrated theatrical levels,
you may wish to adjust the volume. For example, if you see the following message:
“Dial Norm + 4 dB” in the front panel display, to keep the overall output level at THX
calibrated loudness, just turn down the volume control by 4 dB. However, unlike a
movie theater where the playback loudness is preset, you can choose your preferred
volume setting for best enjoyment.

■ Sound output in each sound field program
Sound output from each speaker depends on the type of audio signals being input. Refer to the diagrams in the table below to understand the
speaker layout for each sound field program.
Note
Be advised that there may be no or not enough sound output from speakers depending on the type of input source being played back. Furthermore, there may
be some channels that can only be used partially when they are adjusted to specific aspects of movies, such as special sound effects, etc.

Parametric equalizer information
Parametric equalizer information
This unit employs Yamaha Parametric Room Acoustic Optimizer
(YPAO) technology, together with the Parametric EQ settings (see
page 87), to optimize the frequency characteristics of its parametric
equalizer to match your listening environment. YPAO uses a
combination of the following three parameters (Frequency, Gain
and Q factor) to provide highly precise adjustment of the frequency
characteristics.
■ Frequency
This parameter is adjustable in one-third octave increments between
32 Hz and 16 kHz.
YPAO adjusts frequency characteristics to suit your listening
requirements using a combination of the above three parameters
(Frequency, Gain and Q factor) for each equalizer band in this unit’s
parametric equalizer. This unit has 7 equalizer bands for each
channel.
The use of multiple equalizer bands enables more precise
adjustments of frequency characteristics (as in Figure 2). This is not
possible using only a single equalizer band (as in Figure 1).

■ Standing wave
The width of the specified frequency band is referred to as the Q
factor. This parameter is adjustable between the values 0.5 and 10.
135 En
Additional
Information
■ Q factor
A wave generated when two waves of the same length, frequency
and speed but traveling in opposite directions overlap. Standing
waves appear to be stationary and simply oscillating in a fixed
position without progressing.
Under certain conditions, the sound leaving a speaker and the sound
reflecting off a wall, etc., in a room resonate. When this happens, it
has a major effect on the frequency response in the room, and
depending on the listening position sounds of specific frequencies
may sound loud or inversely may be hard to hear. As a result, this
hampers accurate reproduction of the sound source.
This unit is equipped with a parametric equalizer to reduce the
effect of standing waves. The equalizer’s settings can be optimized
through automatic measurements. Even more accurate settings can
be made by taking measurements at other positions.
