Replacement and mounting of an AC plug on the power supply cord of this unit should be performed only by qualified
service personnel.
IMPORTANT: THE MOULDED PLUG
This appliance is supplied with a moulded three pin mains plug for your safety and convenience. A 10 amp fuse is fitted in this plug. Should
the fuse need to be replaced, please ensure that the replacement fuse has a rating of 10 amps and that it is approved by ASTA or BSI to
BS1362.
Check for the ASTA mark
or the BSI mark
on the body of the fuse.
If the plug contains a removable fuse cover, you must ensure that it is refitted when the fuse is replaced. If you lose the fuse cover the plug
must not be used until a replacement cover is obtained. A replacement fuse cover can be obtained from your local dealer.
If the fitted moulded plug is unsuitable for your socket outlet, then the fuse shall be removed and the plug cut off and disposed of
safely. There is a danger of severe electrical shock if the cut off plug is inserted into any 13 amp socket.
If a new plug is to be fitted, please observe the wiring code as shown below. If in any doubt, please consult a qualified electrician.
IMPORTANT: The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Blue : Neutral Brown : Live
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in
your plug, proceed as follows;
The wire which is coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the
letter N or coloured BLACK.
The wire which is coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the
letter L or coloured RED.
How to replace the fuse: Open the fuse compartment with a screwdriver and replace the fuse.

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.
• HDMI (Ver.1.4 with 3D, Audio Return Channel)
A compatible component is required to use the above
function.
• Remote operation on an iPhone/iPod touch
Operation via LAN is possible from an iPhone or iPod
touch by downloading a Pioneer original application
(iControlAV) from the iTunes Store.
• iPhone/iPod playback
Your iPhone or iPod can be connected to the receiver’s
USB terminal to play the music/video files on the iPhone/
iPod.
• PQLS multi surround
Jitterless high quality playback is possible by connecting
a PQLS-compatible player with HDMI connections.
• Dolby Pro Logic llz compatible
Adding a pair of speakers above the front left and right
speakers adds expressiveness in the vertical direction to
the previous horizontally-oriented sound field. The height
channel strengthens the sound field’s sense of threedimensionality and air, producing presence and
expansion.
• Internet Radio
By connecting this receiver to the network via the LAN
terminal, you can listen to Internet radio stations.
• Bluetooth compatible
Using the Bluetooth ADAPTER (AS-BT100) lets you enjoy
music files on an iPhone or other Bluetooth wireless
technology device wirelessly. (The Bluetooth ADAPTER
(AS-BT100) is included with the VSX-LX53, sold
separately for the VSX-2020.)
• Sound Retriever and Sound Retriever Air
The Sound Retriever feature employs DSP technology to
restore sound pressure and smooth jagged artifacts left
over after compression. Sound Retriever Air
compensates for reduced sound quality due to
compression when sending Bluetooth signals.
8
En
• 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.
• Web control
The receiver can be operated using a browser from a
computer connected on the same LAN as the receiver.
Checking what’s in the box
Please check that you’ve received the following supplied
accessories:
• Setup microphone (cable: 5 m)
• Remote control unit
• AAA size IEC R03 dry cell batteries (to confirm system
operation) x2
• AM loop antenna

Before you start
Installing the receiver
• When installing this unit, make sure to put it on a
level and stable surface.
Don’t install it on the following places:
– on a color TV (the screen may distort)
– near a cassette deck (or close to a device that gives off
a magnetic field). This may interfere with the sound.
– in direct sunlight
– in damp or wet areas
– in extremely hot or cold areas
– in places where there is vibration or other movement
– in places that are very dusty
– in places that have hot fumes or oils (such as a kitchen)

Operating range of remote control unit
The remote control may not work properly if:
• There are obstacles between the remote control and
the receiver’s remote sensor.
• Direct sunlight or fluorescent light is shining onto the
remote sensor.
• The receiver is located near a device that is emitting
infrared rays.
• The receiver is operated simultaneously with another
infrared remote control unit.
• Do not touch this receiver’s bottom panel while the
power is on or just after it is turned off. The bottom
panel becomes hot when the power is on (or right
after it is turned off) and could cause burns.

Loading the batteries
30°
7m
The batteries included with the unit are to check initial
operations; they may not last over a long period. We
recommend using alkaline batteries that have a longer
life.
CAUTION
Incorrect use of batteries may result in such hazards as
leakage and bursting. Observe the following precautions:
• Never use new and old batteries together.
• Insert the plus and minus sides of the batteries
properly according to the marks in the battery case.
• Batteries with the same shape may have different
voltages. Do not use different batteries together.
• When disposing of used batteries, please comply
with governmental regulations or environmental
public instruction’s rules that apply in your country or
area.
• WARNING
Do not use or store batteries in direct sunlight or
other excessively hot place, such as inside a car or
near a heater. This can cause batteries to leak,
overheat, explode or catch fire. It can also reduce the
life or performance of batteries.

[D] 5.1 channel surround system & Front Biamping connection (High quality surround)
• Speaker System setting: Front Bi-Amp
A 9.1 ch surround system connects the left and right
front speakers (L/R), the center speaker (C), the left and
right front height speakers (FHL/FHR), the left and right
surround speakers (SL/SR), the left and right surround
back speakers (SBL/SBR), and the subwoofer (SW).

Important
• The Speaker System setting must be made if you
use any of the connections shown above other than
[A] (see Speaker system setting on page 77).
• Sound does not come through simultaneously from
the front height, front wide, speaker B and surround
back speakers. Output speakers are different
depending on the input signal or listening mode.
Other speaker connections
• Your favorite speaker connections can be selected
even if you have fewer than 5.1 speakers (except front
left/right speakers).
• When not connecting a subwoofer, connect speakers
with low frequency reproduction capabilities to the
front channel. (The subwoofer’s low frequency
component is played from the front speakers, so the
speakers could be damaged.)
• After connecting, be sure to conduct the Auto
MCACC (speaker environment setting) procedure.
See Automatically setting up for surround sound
(Auto MCACC) on page 34.

• Place the surround speakers at 120º from the center.
If you, (1) use the surround back speaker, and, (2)
don’t use the front height speakers / front wide
speakers, we recommend placing the surround
speaker right beside you.
• If you intend to connect only one surround back
speaker, place it directly behind you.
• Place the left and right front height speakers at least
one meter directly above the left and right front
speakers.
THX speaker system setup
If you are using a THX certified subwoofer, use the THX
INPUT jack on the subwoofer (if your subwoofer has one)
or switch the filter position to THX on your subwoofer.
See also THX Audio Setting on page 80 to make the
settings that will give you the best sound experience
when using the Home THX modes (page 48).
Some tips for improving sound quality
Where you put your speakers in the room has a big effect
on the quality of the sound. The following guidelines
should help you to get the best sound from your system.
• The subwoofer can be placed on the floor. Ideally, the
other speakers should be at about ear-level when
you’re listening to them. Putting the speakers on the
floor (except the subwoofer), or mounting them very
high on a wall is not recommended.
• For the best stereo effect, place the front speakers 2
m to 3 m apart, at equal distance from the TV.
• If you’re going to place speakers around your CRT TV,
use shielded speakers or place the speakers at a
sufficient distance from your CRT TV.
• If you’re using a center speaker, place the front
speakers at a wider angle. If not, place them at a
narrower angle.
16
En
Connecting your equipment
• 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.
03
Connecting the speakers
Each speaker connection on the receiver comprises a
positive (+) and negative (–) terminal. Make sure to
match these up with the terminals on the speakers
themselves.
CAUTION
• Surround and surround back speakers should be
positioned 60 cm to 90 cm higher than your ears and
tilted slightly downward. Make sure the speakers
don’t face each other. For DVD-Audio, the speakers
should be more directly behind the listener than for
home theater playback.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.

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
Surround left
Bi-wiring your speakers
Your speakers can also be bi-wired if they support biamping.
• With these connections, the Speaker System setting
makes no difference.
• To bi-wire a speaker, connect two speaker cords to
the speaker terminal on the receiver.
• 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.
• 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 VIDEO OUT jacks.
The only exception is HDMI: since this resolution cannot
be downsampled, you must connect your monitor/TV to
the receiver’s HDMI video outputs when connecting this
video source.1
Note
1 • If the video signal does not appear on your TV, try adjusting the resolution settings on your component or display. Note that some
components (such as video game units) have resolutions that may not be converted. In this case, try switching Digital Video Conversion (in
Setting the Video options on page 56) OFF.
• The signal input resolutions that can be converted from the component video input for the HDMI output are 480i/576i, 480p/576p, 720p and
1080i. 1080p signals cannot be converted.
• Only signals with an input resolution of 480i/576i can be converted from the component video input for the composite MONITOR OUT
terminals.

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 • Use a High Speed HDMI® cable. If an HDMI cable other than a High Speed HDMI® cable is used, it may not work properly.
• When an HDMI cable with a built-in equalizer is connected, it may not operate properly.
3 Signal transfer is only possible when connected to a compatible component.
4 • HDMI format digital audio transmissions require a longer time to be recognized. Due to this, interruption in the audio may occur when
switching between audio formats or beginning playback.
• Turning on/off the device connected to this unit's HDMI OUT terminal during playback, or disconnecting/connecting the HDMI cable during
playback, may cause noise or interrupted audio.

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.
Connecting additional amplifiers
This receiver has more than enough power for any home
use, but it’s possible to add additional amplifiers to every
channel of your system using the pre-outs. Make the
connections shown below to add amplifiers to power
your speakers.

• 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.
• The sound from the surround back terminals will
depend on how you have configured the Speaker
system setting on page 77.
• 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 78) to LARGE.

Plugging in the receiver
Only plug in after you have connected all your
components to this receiver, including the speakers.
1 Plug the supplied power cord into the AC IN socket
on the back of the receiver.
2
Plug the other end into a power outlet.1
CAUTION
• Handle the power cord by the plug part. Do not pull
out the plug by tugging the cord, and never touch the
power cord when your hands are wet, as this could
cause a short circuit or electric shock. Do not place
the unit, a piece of furniture, or other object on the
power cord or pinch the cord in any other way. Never
make a knot in the cord or tie it with other cables. The
power cords should be routed so that they are not
likely to be stepped on. A damaged power cord can
cause a fire or give you an electric shock. Check the
power cord once in a while. If you find it damaged,
ask your nearest Pioneer authorized independent
service company for a replacement.
• Do not use any power cord other than the one
supplied with this unit.
• Do not use the supplied power cord for any purpose
other than that described below.
• Connect the 12 V TRIGGER jack of this receiver to
the 12 V trigger of another component.

Automatically setting up for surround
sound (Auto MCACC)
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.
Important
• Make sure the microphone and speakers are not
moved during the Auto MCACC Setup.
• Using the Auto MCACC Setup will overwrite any
existing settings for the MCACC preset you select.
• Before using the Auto MCACC Setup, the
headphones should be disconnected.

Basic Setup
• If Reverse Phase is displayed, the speaker’s wiring
(+ and –) may be inverted. Check the speaker
connections.1
– If the connections were wrong, turn off the power,
disconnect the power cord, then reconnect properly.
After this, perform the Full Auto MCACC procedure
again.
– If the connections were right, select GO NEXT and
continue.
7 Make sure ‘OK’ is selected, then press ENTER.
A progress report is displayed on-screen while the
receiver outputs more test tones to determine the
optimum receiver settings.
Again, try to be as quiet as possible while this is
happening. It may take 3 to 10 minutes.
8 The Auto MCACC Setup procedure is completed and
the Home Menu menu reappears automatically.
Be sure to disconnect the microphone from this receiver
upon completion of the Auto MCACC Setup.
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
Advanced MCACC menu on page 68 or The System Setup
and Other Setup menus on page 77.2
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 37). 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.
1 Press RECEIVER on the remote control, then press
HOME MENU.
A Graphical User Interface (GUI) screen appears on your
TV. Use /// and ENTER to navigate through the
screens and select menu items. Press RETURN to
confirm and exit the current menu.

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.
4 Select the input function that you want to set up.
The default names correspond with the names next to the
terminals on the rear panel (such as DVD or VIDEO)
which, in turn, correspond with the names on the remote
control.
5 Select the input(s) to which you’ve connected your
component.
For example, if your DVD player only has an optical
output, you will need to change the DVD input function’s
Digital In setting from COAX-1 (default) to the optical
input you’ve connected it to. The numbering (OPT-1 to 3)
corresponds with the numbers beside the inputs on the
back of the receiver.
6 When you’re finished, proceed to the settings for
other inputs.
There are optional settings in addition to the assignment
of the input jacks:
• Input Name – You can choose to rename the input
function for easier identification. Select Rename to
do so, or Default to return to the system default.
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 77.
• 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.

• Input Skip – When set to ON, that input is skipped
when selecting the input using INPUT SELECT. (DVD

trigger setting to switch it on automatically along
with the (main or sub) zone specified.
7 When you’re finished, press RETURN.
You will return to the System Setup menu.
Input function default and possible settings
The terminals on the receiver generally correspond to the

Saving station presets
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.
1
Press TUNER to select the tuner.
2 Use BAND to change the band (FM or AM), if
necessary.
3 Tune to a station.
There are three ways to do this:
Automatic tuning – To search for stations in the
currently selected band, press and hold TUNE /
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.
Using Neural Surround
If you often listen to a particular radio station, it’s
convenient to have the receiver store the frequency for
easy recall whenever you want to listen to that station.
This saves the effort of manually tuning in each time. This
receiver can memorize up to 63 stations, stored in seven
banks, or classes (A to G) of 9 stations each.
1
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.
Naming station presets
For easier identification, you can name your station
presets.
1 Choose the station preset you want to name.
See Listening to station presets below for how to do this.
2 Press T.EDIT (TUNER EDIT).
The display shows PRESET NAME, then a blinking cursor
at the first character position.
3 Input the name you want.
Use / to select a character, / to set the position,
and ENTER to confirm your selection.
This feature uses Neural Surround™ technologies to
achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.
Tip
• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/ALC/
DIRECT for Neural Surround.
• To erase a station name, simply repeat steps 1 to 3
and input eight spaces instead of a name.
The Neural Surround mode can be selected also with
STANDARD.
• Once you have named a station preset, you can press
DISP when listening to a station to switch the display
between name and frequency.

An introduction to RDS
Radio Data System (RDS) is a system used by most FM
radio stations to provide listeners with various kinds of
information—the name of the station and the kind of
show they’re broadcasting, for example.
One feature of RDS is that you can search by type of
program. For example, you can search for a station that’s
broadcasting a show with the program type, JAZZ.
You can search the following program types:1
NEWS – News
AFFAIRS – Current Affairs
INFO – General Information
SPORT – Sport
EDUCATE – Educational
DRAMA – Radio plays, etc.
CULTURE – National or regional
culture, theater, etc.
SCIENCE – Science and
technology
VARIED – Usually talk-based
material, such as quiz shows or
interviews.
POP M – Pop music
ROCK M – Rock music
EASY M – Easy listening
LIGHT M – ‘Light’ classical music
CLASSICS – ‘Serious’ classical
music
OTHER M – Music not fitting
above categories
WEATHER – Weather reports
FINANCE – Stock market reports,
commerce, trading, etc.
CHILDREN – Programs for
children
SOCIAL – Social affairs
RELIGION – Programs
concerning religion
PHONE IN – Public expressing
their views by phone
TRAVEL – Holiday-type travel
rather than traffic
announcements
LEISURE – Leisure interests and
hobbies
JAZZ – Jazz
COUNTRY – Country music
NATION M – Popular music in a
language other than English
OLDIES – Popular music from the
’50s and ’60s
FOLK M – Folk music
DOCUMENT – Documentary
Searching for RDS programs
One of the most useful features of RDS is the ability to
search for a particular kind of radio program. You can
search for any of the program types listed above.
1
Press TUNER to select the FM band.2
2 Press PTY SEARCH.
PTY SEARCH shows in the display.
3 Press PRESET / to select the program type you
want to hear.
5 If you want to keep listening to the station, press
ENTER within the five seconds.
If you don’t press ENTER, searching resumes.
If NO PTY is displayed it means the tuner couldn’t find
that program type at the time of the search.3
Displaying RDS information
Use the DISP button to display the different types of RDS
information available.4
• Press DISP for RDS information.
Each press changes the display as follows:
• Radio Text (RT) – Messages sent by the radio station.
For example, a talk radio station may provide a phone
number as RT.
• Program Service Name (PS) – The name of the radio
station.
• Program Type (PTY) – This indicates the kind of
program currently being broadcast.
• Current tuner frequency.
Listening to Internet radio stations
Internet radio is an audio broadcasting service
transmitted via the Internet.5 There are a large number of
Internet radio stations broadcasting a variety of services
from every corner of the world. Some are hosted,
managed, and broadcast by private individuals while
others are by the corresponding traditional terrestrial
radio stations or radio networks. Whereas terrestrial, or
OTA (over-the-air), radio stations are geographically
restricted on the range of radio waves broadcast from a
transmitter through the air, Internet radio stations are
accessible from anywhere in the world, as long as there
is a connection to the Internet, as services are not
transmitted through the air but are delivered over the
World Wide Web. On this receiver you can select Internet
radio stations by genre as well as by region.
4 Press ENTER to search for the program type.
The system starts searching through all frequencies for a
match. When it finds one, the search stops and the
station plays for five seconds.
Note
1 In addition, there are two other program types, TEST and NONE. You can’t search for these.
2 RDS is only possible in the FM band.
3 RDS searches all frequencies. If the program type could not be found among all the frequencies, NO PTY is displayed.
4 • If any noise is picked up while displaying the RT scroll, some characters may be displayed incorrectly.
• If you see NO RT DATA in the RT display, it means no RT data is sent from the broadcast station.
• If you see NO PS DATA in the PS display, it means no PS data can be received.
• If you see NO PTY DATA in the PTY display, it means no PTY data can be received.
5 • To listen to Internet radio stations, you must have high-speed broadband Internet access. With a 56 K or ISDN modem, you may not enjoy
the full benefits of Internet radio.
• The port number varies depending on the Internet radio station. Check the firewall settings.
• Broadcasts may be stopped or interrupted depending on the Internet radio station. In this case, you cannot listen to a radio station selected
from the list of Internet radio stations.

Selecting MCACC presets
• Default setting: MEMORY 1
If you have calibrated your system for different listening
positions, you can switch between settings to suit the
kind of source you’re listening to and where you’re sitting
(for example, watching movies from a sofa, or playing a
video game close to the TV).
• While listening to a source, press RECEIVER , then
press MCACC.
Press repeatedly to select one of the six MCACC presets1.
See Data Management on page 75 to check and manage
your current settings.
Better sound using Phase Control
This receiver’s Phase Control feature uses phase
correction measures to make sure your sound source
arrives at the listening position in phase, preventing
unwanted distortion and/or coloring of the sound.
Phase Control technology provides coherent sound
reproduction through the use of phase matching5 for an
optimal sound image. The default setting is on and we
recommend leaving Phase Control switched on for all
sound sources.
• Press RECEIVER , then press PHASE CTRL (PHASE
CONTROL) to switch on phase correction.
The PHASE CONTROL indicator on the front panel lights.
Choosing the input signal
On this receiver, it is possible to switch the input signals
for the different inputs as described below.2
• Press RECEIVER , then press SIGNAL SEL to select
the input signal corresponding to the source
component.
Each press cycles through the options as follows:
• AUTO – The receiver selects the first available signal
in the following order: HDMI; DIGITAL; ANALOG.
• ANALOG – Selects an analog signal.
• DIGITAL – Selects an optical or coaxial digital signal.
• HDMI – Selects an HDMI signal.3
• PCM – For PCM input signals.4 The receiver selects
the first available signal in the following order: HDMI;
DIGITAL.
When set to DIGITAL, HDMI or AUTO (only selected
DIGITAL or HDMI), the indicators light according to the
signal being decoded (see Display on page 12).
Note
1 • These settings have no effect when headphones are connected.
• You can also press / to select the MCACC preset.
2 • 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 (TUNER).
• You may get digital noise when an LD or CD player compatible with DTS is playing an analog signal. To prevent noise, make the proper digital
connections (page 26) 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.
3 When the HDMI audio output parameter is set to THROUGH, the sound will be heard through your TV, not from this receiver.
4 • 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.
5 • 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 HDMI audio output parameter is set to THROUGH in Setting the Audio options on page 54.

• The receiver’s input switches automatically when the
TV’s channel is switched.
• The synchronized amp mode remains in effect even if
the receiver’s input is switched to a component other
than one connected by HDMI.
Control with HDMI function
The operations below can also be used on Pioneer
Control with HDMI-compatible TVs.
• When the receiver’s volume is adjusted or the sound
is muted, the volume status is displayed on the TV’s
screen.
• When the OSD language is switched on the TV, the
receiver’s language setting also switches
accordingly.
About connections with a product of a
different brand that supports the Control
with HDMI function
The synchronized operations below can be used when
the receiver’s Control with HDMI function is connected
to a TV of a brand other than Pioneer that supports the
Control with HDMI function. (Depending on the TV,
however, some of the Control with HDMI functions may
not work.)
• When the TV’s power is set to standby, the receiver’s
power is also set to standby. (Only when the input for
a component connected to the receiver by HDMI
connection is selected or when watching the TV)
• The sound of TV programs or an external input
connected to the TV can also be output from the
speakers connected to the receiver. (If the TV does
not support the HDMI Audio Return Channel
function, this requires connection of an optical
digital cable, etc., in addition to the HDMI cable.)

• On players compatible with PQLS Multi Surround,
PQLS works for all sources. Set the player’s audio
output to Linear PCM.
• On players compatible with PQLS 2 ch Audio, PQLS
only works when playing CDs.
Please refer to the operating instructions supplied with
your player for more information.
This function is activated when Control is set to ON.1
• Press RECEIVER , then press PQLS to select the PQLS
setting.
The setting is displayed on the front panel display.
• PQLS AUTO – PQLS is enabled. A precision quartz
controller in this receiver eliminates distortion
caused by timing errors (jitter), giving you the best
possible digital-to-analog conversion when you use
the HDMI interface. This is valid as an HDMI function
for PQLS-compatible players.
• PQLS OFF – PQLS is disabled.
Cautions on the Control with HDMI
function
• Connect the TV directly to this receiver. Interrupting a
direct connection with other amps or an AV converter
(such as an HDMI switch) can cause operational
errors.
The synchronized operations below can be used when
the receiver’s Control with HDMI function is connected
to a player or recorder of a brand other than Pioneer that
supports the Control with HDMI function.
• 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 playback starts on the player or recorder, the
receiver’s input switches to the HDMI input to which
that component is connected.
• When Control is set to ON, HDMI Input in The Input
Setup menu on page 36 is automatically set to OFF.
See the Pioneer website for the latest information on the
models of non-Pioneer brands and products that support
the Control with HDMI function.
Setting the PQLS function
PQLS (Precision Quartz Lock System) is a digital audio
signal transfer control technology using the Control with
HDMI function. It offers higher-quality audio playback by
controlling audio signals from the receiver to a PQLS
compatible player, etc. This enables removing jitter that
has a negative effect on the quality of the sound and is
generated upon transmission.
• When the receiver’s Control is turned ON, even if the
receiver’s power is in the standby mode, it is possible
to output the audio and video signals from a player
via HDMI to the TV without producing sound from the
receiver, but only when a Control with HDMIcompatible component (Blu-ray disc player, etc.) and
compatible TV are connected. In this case, the
receiver’s power turns on and the power and HDMI
indicators light.
Note
1 • 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.

Chapter 10:
The Advanced MCACC menu
Making receiver settings from the
Advanced MCACC menu
The Advanced MCACC (Multi Channel ACoustic
Calibration) system was developed in Pioneer’s
laboratories with the aim of making it possible for home
users to perform adjustments of the same level as in a
studio easily and with high precision. The acoustic
characteristics of the listening environment are
measured and the frequency response is calibrated
accordingly to allow high precision, automatic analysis
and optimal calibration of the sound field to bring it
closer to a studio environment than ever before.
Furthermore, while it was previously difficult to eliminate
standing waves, this receiver is equipped with a standing
wave control function using a unique process to perform
acoustic analysis and reduce their influence.
This section describes how to calibrate the sound field
automatically and fine-adjust the sound field data
manually.
1 Switch on the receiver and your TV.
Make sure that the TV’s video input is set to this receiver.
2 Press RECEIVER on the remote control, then press
HOME MENU.
A Graphical User Interface (GUI) screen appears on your
TV. Use /// and ENTER to navigate through the
screens and select menu items. Press RETURN to
confirm and exit the current menu.
• Press HOME MENU at any time to exit the Home
Menu.
3 Select ‘Advanced MCACC’ from the Home Menu,
then press ENTER.
4
Select the setting you want to adjust.
• Full Auto MCACC – See Automatically setting up for
surround sound (Auto MCACC) on page 34 for a quick
and effective automatic surround setup.
• Auto MCACC – See Automatic MCACC (Expert)
below for a more detailed MCACC setup.
• Manual MCACC – Fine-tunes your speaker settings
and customizes the Acoustic Calibration EQ (see
Manual MCACC setup on page 70).
• Demo – No settings are saved and no errors occur.
When the speakers are connected to this receiver,
the test tone is output repeatedly. Press RETURN to
cancel the test tone.
68
En
Automatic MCACC (Expert)
If your setup requires more detailed settings than those
provided in Automatically setting up for surround sound
(Auto MCACC) on page 34, you can customize your setup
options below. You can calibrate your system differently
for up to six different MCACC presets, which are useful if
you have different listening positions depending on the
type of source (for example, watching movies from a sofa,
or playing a video game close to the TV).
Important
• Make sure the microphone/speakers are not moved
during the Auto MCACC Setup.
• The screen saver will automatically appear after five
minutes of inactivity.
CAUTION
• The test tones used in the Auto MCACC Setup are
output at high volume.

After a single calibration is performed, each of the
following three correction curves can be stored
separately in the MCACC memory. SYMMETRY
implements symmetric correction for each pair of left
and right speakers to flatten the frequency-amplitude
characteristics. ALL CH ADJ is a ‘flat’ setting where all
the speakers are set individually so no special weighting
is given to any one channel. FRONT ALIGN2 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.
Place the microphone at the reference point
indicated on-screen and note that the last
microphone placement will be at your main listening

speaker. Try to make the two tones sound as if they are
arriving simultaneously at a position slightly in front of
you and between your arm span.1
2 Adjust the level of the left channel.
This will be the reference speaker level, so you may want
to keep the level around 0.0dB so that you’ll have plenty
of room to adjust the other speaker levels.
• After pressing ENTER, test tones will be output.

Standing Wave
• Default setting: ON2/ATT 0.0dB (all filters)
Acoustic standing waves occur when, under certain
conditions, sound waves from your speaker system
resonate mutually with sound waves reflected off the
walls in your listening area. This can have a negative
effect on the overall sound, especially at certain lower
frequencies. Depending on speaker placement, your
listening position, and ultimately the shape of your room,
it results in an overly resonant (‘boomy’) sound. The
Standing Wave Control uses filters to reduce the effect of
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).

Tip
• Changing the frequency curve of one channel too
drastically will affect the overall balance. If the speaker
balance seems uneven, you can raise or lower channel
levels using test tones with the TRIM feature. Use /
 to select TRIM, then use / to raise or lower the
channel level for the current speaker.
1 Select ‘Standing Wave’ from the Manual MCACC

• TRIM (only available when the filter channel above is
SW) – Adjust the subwoofer channel level (to
compensate for the difference in output post-filter).
• Freq / Q / ATT – These are the filter parameters where
Freq represents the frequency you will be targeting
and Q is the bandwidth (the higher the Q, the
narrower the bandwidth, or range) of the attenuation
(ATT, the amount of reduction to the targeted
frequency).

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.
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 (when Type A or Type B shown on the
diagrams on the following applies), select EQ Pro. & SWave (or ALL) for the Auto MCACC setting in Automatic
MCACC (Expert) on page 68 to calibrate the room
automatically.
• Type A: Reverberance of high vs. low frequencies
• Default setting: ON/0.0dB (all channels/bands)
Acoustic Calibration Equalization is a kind of room
equalizer for your speakers (excluding the subwoofer). It
works by measuring the acoustic characteristics of your
room and neutralizing the ambient characteristics that
can color the original source material (providing a ‘flat’
equalization setting). If you’re not satisfied with the
adjustment provided in Automatically setting up for
surround sound (Auto MCACC) on page 34 or Automatic
MCACC (Expert) on page 68, you can also adjust these
settings manually to get a frequency balance that suits
your tastes.

• Reverb View – You can check the reverb
measurements made for specified frequency ranges
in each channel.1
• Advanced EQ Setup – Use this to select the time
period that will be used for frequency adjustment and
calibration, based on the reverb measurement of
your listening area. Note that customizing system
calibration using this setup will alter the settings you
made in Automatically setting up for surround sound
(Auto MCACC) on page 34 or Automatic MCACC
(Expert) on page 68 and is not necessary if you’re
satisfied with these settings.
3 If you selected ‘Reverb Measurement’, select EQ
ON or OFF, and then START.
The following options determine how the reverb
characteristics of your listening area are displayed in
Reverb View:
• EQ OFF – You will see the reverb characteristics of
your listening area without the equalization
performed by this receiver (before calibration).
• EQ ON – You will see the reverb characteristics of
your listening area with the equalization performed
by this receiver (after calibration).2 Note that the EQ
response may not appear entirely flat due to
adjustments necessary for your listening area.3
When the reverb measurement is finished, you can select
Reverb View to see the results on-screen. See

MCACC memory to be stored, then enter the desired
time setting for calibration, and then select START.5
Based on the reverb measurement above, you can
choose the time period that will be used for the final
frequency adjustment and calibration. Even though you
can make this setting without reverb measurement, it is
best to use the measurement results as a reference for
your time setting. For an optimal system calibration
based on the direct sound coming from the speakers, we
recommend using the 30-50ms setting.
Use / to select the setting. Use / to switch
between them.
Select the setting from the following time periods (in
milliseconds): 0-20ms, 10-30ms, 20-40ms, 30-50ms, 4060ms, 50-70ms and 60-80ms. This setting will be applied
to all channels during calibration.
When you’re finished, select START. It will take about 2
to 4 minutes for the calibration to finish.
After the Acoustic Calibration Equalization is set, you are
given the option to check the settings on-screen.
Note
1 If the Reverb View procedure is performed after the Automatically setting up for surround sound (Auto MCACC) on page 34 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 calibration corresponding to the currently selected MCACC preset will be used when EQ ON is selected. To use another MCACC preset,

back speakers are the same distance from the
listening position.
3 Confirm your selected setup option.
The test tones will start after you press ENTER.
Note
1 • If you selected ZONE 2 or Front Bi-Amp (in Speaker system setting on page 77) 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.
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.
• With Full Auto MCACC Setup or Auto MCACC Setup (ALL or Speaker Setting), the setting here will not apply and the crossover frequency
will be automatically set. Crossover frequency is a frequency aimed at achieving the optimal sound field taking into account the bass capacity
of all connected speakers and human aural characteristics.
• If you’re using THX speakers, confirm that the crossover frequency is set to 80Hz.
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).

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 cm using the Auto MCACC
Setup function (page 34).
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 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.
Adjust so that the front speaker units reproducing midand high frequencies is roughly at the height of the ears.
If the center speaker cannot be set at the same height as
the front speakers, adjust its angle of elevation to point it
to the listening position.
Set surround speaker 1 so that it is not under the height
of the ears.
If the left and right speakers are not pointing in the same
direction, the tone will not be the same on the right and
left, and as a result the sound field will not be reproduced
properly. However, if all the speakers are pointed towards
the listening position, the sound field will seem cramped.
Testing by the Pioneer Multi-channel Research Group
has shown that a good sense of sound positioning can be
achieved by pointing all the speakers towards an area
30 cm to 80 cm 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 74).
Step 5: Default settings with the Auto MCACC
Setup (auto sound field correction) function
It is more effective to perform the Auto MCACC Setup
(page 34) procedure once the adjustments described
above have been completed.
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

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.

Important information regarding the HDMI connection
There are cases where you may not be able to route HDMI signals through this receiver (this depends on the HDMIequipped component you are connecting–check with the manufacturer for HDMI compatibility information).
If you aren’t receiving HDMI signals properly through this receiver (from your component), please try one of the
following configurations when connecting up.
Configuration A
Configuration B
Use component video cables to connect the video output
of your HDMI-equipped component to the receiver’s
component video input. The receiver can then convert the
analog component video signal to a digital HDMI signal
for transmission to the display. For this configuration,
use the most convenient connection (digital is
recommended) for sending audio to the receiver. See the
operating instructions for more on audio connections.
Connect your HDMI-equipped component directly to the
display using an HDMI cable. Then use the most
convenient connection (digital is recommended) for
sending audio to the receiver. See the operating
instructions for more on audio connections. Set the
display volume to minimum when using this
configuration.
Note
Note
• The picture quality will change slightly during
conversion.
• If your display only has one HDMI terminal, you can
only receive HDMI video from the connected
component.
• Depending on the component, audio output may be
limited to the number of channels available from the
connected display unit (for example audio output is
reduced to 2 channels for a monitor with stereo audio
limitations).
• If you want to switch the input function, you’ll have to
switch functions on both the receiver and your
display unit.
• Since the sound is muted on the display when using
the HDMI connection, you must adjust the volume on
the display every time you switch input functions.

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.

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.

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.

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 as shown in the diagram 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 Music
For the replay of multi-channel music the THX MusicMode 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 Games
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.

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 Cinema
THX Select2 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.
DTS-ES (Matrix and 6.1 Discrete) and Dolby Digital Surround EX
encoded soundtracks will be automatically detected in Select2
Cinema mode 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 Select2 Cinema
mode will apply ASA processing to provide optimum replay.

Note
• Specifications and the design are subject to possible
modifications without notice, due to improvements.
Additional information
Cleaning the unit
• Use a polishing cloth or dry cloth to wipe off dust and
dirt.
• When the surface is dirty, wipe with a soft cloth
dipped in some neutral cleanser diluted five or six
times with water, and wrung out well, and then wipe
again with a dry cloth. Do not use furniture wax or
cleansers.
• Never use thinners, benzene, insecticide sprays or
other chemicals on or near this unit, since these will
corrode the surface.
12
Radio wave caution
Bluetooth ADAPTER (AS-BT100)1 uses a 2.4 GHz radio
wave frequency, which is a band used by other wireless
systems (see list below). To prevent noise or interrupted
communication, do not use this unit nearby such
devices, or make sure these devices are switched off
during use.
• Cordless phones
• Cordless facsimiles
• Microwave ovens
• Wireless LAN devices (IEEE802.11b/g)
• Wireless AV equipment
Our philosophy
• Wireless controllers for game systems
Pioneer is dedicated to making your home theater
listening experience as close as possible to the vision of
the moviemakers and mastering engineers when they
created the original soundtrack. We do this by focusing
on three important steps:
• Microwave-based health aids
1 Designing with carefully selected components so
as to transmit the original soundtrack accurately
2 Allowing for customized acoustic calibration
according to any listening area
3
Tuning that transmits soul
This product includes FontAvenue® fonts licenced by NEC corporation.
FontAvenue is a registered trademark of NEC Corporation
• Some baby monitors
Other, less common, equipment that may operate on the
same frequency:
• Anti-theft systems
• Amateur radio stations (HAM)
• Warehouse logistic management systems
• Discrimination systems for train or emergency
vehicles
Note
• In the event noise appears in your television image,
there is the possibility that a Bluetooth® wireless
technology enabled device or AS-BT100 (including
products supported by AS-BT100) are causing signal
interference with the antenna input connector of your
television, video, BS tuner, CS tuner, etc. In this
event, increase the distance between the antenna
input connector and the Bluetooth wireless
technology enabled device or AS-BT100 (including
products supported by AS-BT100).
• If there is something obstructing the path between
AS-BT100 (including devices supported by AS-BT100)
and the device equipped with Bluetooth wireless
technology (such as a metal door, concrete wall, or
insulation containing tinfoil), you may need to
change the location of your system to prevent signal
noise and interruptions.
Note
1 The Bluetooth ADAPTER (AS-BT100) is included with the VSX-LX53, sold separately for the VSX-2020.

Additional information
Scope of operation
Use of AS-BT100 is limited to home use. (Transmission
distances may be reduced depending on communication
environment).
In the following locations, poor condition or inability to
receive radio waves may cause the audio to be
interrupted or stopped:
• In reinforced concrete buildings or steelframed or
iron-framed buildings.
• Near large metallic furniture.
• In a crowd of people or near a building or obstacle.
• After completing connections to AS-BT100, check
the audio and power cables to confirm that they not
twisted together.
• When disconnecting AS-BT100, confirm that you
have sufficient working space in the surrounding
area.
• When changing connections of audio or other cables
for products supported by this unit, confirm that you
have sufficient working space in the surrounding
area.
• If you live in a heavily populated residential area
(apartment, townhouse, etc.) and if your neighbor’s
microwave is placed near your system, you may
experience radio wave interference. If this occurs,
move your unit to a different place. When the
microwave is not in use, there will be no radio wave
interference.
• Always connect AS-BT100 to the ADAPTER PORT of
the product supported by AS-BT100. If connections
are made to a connector other than the ADAPTER
PORT of the supported product, malfunctions or
damage may result to this unit or the supported
product.
The radio waves received by AS-BT100 include the radio
wave coming directly from the device equipped with
Bluetooth wireless technology (direct wave) and waves
coming from various directions due to reflections by
walls, furniture and building (reflected waves). The
reflected waves (due to obstacles and reflecting objects)
further produce a variety of reflected waves as well as
variation in reception condition depending on locations.
If the audio cannot be received properly due to this
phenomenon, try moving the location of the device
equipped with Bluetooth wireless technology a little. Also
note that audio may be interrupted due to the reflected
waves when a person crosses or approaches the space
between AS-BT100 and the device equipped with
Bluetooth wireless technology.
En
• Complete connections for all devices supported by
AS-BT100, including all audio cords and power
cables before connecting them to AS-BT100.
• In a location exposed to the magnetic field, static
electricity or radio wave interference from radio
communication equipment using the same frequency
band (2.4 GHz) as AS-BT100, such as a
2.4 GHz wireless LAN device (IEEE802.11b/g) or
microwave oven.
Radio wave reflections
106
Precautions regarding connections to
products supported by AS-BT100
CAUTION
• Please note that Pioneer is not responsible for
damages that result from connecting AS-BT100 to a
connector other than the ADAPTER PORT of a
supported product.
