Introduction
We would like to thank you for purchasing one of our JVC products.
Before operating this unit, read this manual carefully and thoroughly to obtain the best possible performance
from your unit, and retain this manual for future reference.
Features
Precautions
Hybrid Feedback Digital Amplifier
Power sources
RX-D401S/RX-D402B features the JVC-exclusive Hybrid
Feedback Digital Amplifier. Premium-grade parts and devices,
and special internal construction assure you will enjoy superior
sound.
• When unplugging the receiver from the wall outlet, always pull
the plug, not the AC power cord.
• Do not handle the AC power cord with wet hands.
• If you are not going to operate the receiver for an extended
period of time, unplug the AC power cord from the wall outlet.
Compatible with HDMI*
The HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is the standard
interface for the next-generation TV. By connecting the source
components, this receiver, and TV with the HDMI cables, digital
video signals and audio signals (including Dolby Digital, DTS)
are transmitted through the cables. You can enjoy digital video
and sound without AD/DA conversion with easy connection.
As RX-D401S/RX-D402B supports up to HDMI version 1.1, this
receiver can digitally transmit 5.1-channel PCM with sampling
rates of 96 kHz and 2-channel PCM with sampling rates of 192
kHz. (These PCM signals are referred to as “multi channel
PCM” in this instruction.) You can enjoy digital sound without
deterioration. In addition, this receiver is compatible with
HDCP** (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection), and
HDCP contents can be viewed if you connect a HDCPcompatible TV to this receiver.
* HDMI, the HDMI logo and High-Definition Multimedia
Interface are trademarks or registered trademarks of HDMI
Licensing LLC.
** HDCP is the abbreviation of “High-Bandwidth Digital Content
Protection,” and is the high-reliable copy control technology
licenced by Digital Content Protection, LLC.
Ventilation
The seven high power amplifiers built in this receiver will generate
heat inside the cabinet.
For safety, observe the following carefully:
• Make sure there is good ventilation around the receiver. Poor
ventilation could overheat and damage the receiver.
• Do not block the ventilation openings or holes. (If the ventilation
openings or holes are blocked by a newspaper or cloth, etc., the
heat may not be able to get out.)
Others
• Should any metallic object or liquid fall onto the unit, unplug the
unit and consult your dealer before operating any further.
• Do not use this receiver in a bathroom or places with water.
• Do not place any containers filled with water or liquids (such as
cosmetics or medicines, flower vases, potted plants, cups, etc.)
on top of this receiver.
• Do not disassemble the unit since there are no user serviceable
parts inside.
If anything goes wrong, unplug the AC power cord and consult
your JVC dealer.
7.1 channel DAP (Digital Acoustic Processor)
Sound field simulation technology allows precise ambience
recreation of existing theatres and halls. Thanks to the highperformance DSP (Digital Signal Processor) and high-capacity
memory, you can enjoy 7.1-channel surround by playing 2channel or multi-channel software.
DCDi technology
DCDi (Directional Correlational Deinterlacing) technology,
developed by Faroudja, eliminates jagged edges generated in
progressive scan conversion. With DCDi, you can enjoy clear
and smooth video images on your display. For RX-D401S/RXD402B, this function is applied only when the NTSC analog
video signals are transmitted to the receiver.

Before Installation
General precautions
• Be sure your hands are dry.
• Turn the power off to all components.
• Read the manuals supplied with the components you are going
to connect.
Locations
• Install the receiver in a location that is level and protected from
moisture and dust.
• The temperature around the receiver must be between –5˚C
and 35˚C (23˚F and 95˚F).
• Make sure there is good ventilation around the receiver. Poor
ventilation could cause overheating and damage the receiver.
• Leave sufficient distance between the receiver and the TV.
Handling the receiver
• Do not insert any metal object into the receiver.
• Do not disassemble the receiver or remove screws, covers, or
cabinet.
• Do not expose the receiver to rain or moisture.
• Do not pull on the power cord to unplug the cord. When
unplugging the cord, always grasp the plug so as not to damage
the cord.
• When you are away on travel or otherwise for an extended
period or time, remove the plug from the wall outlet. A small
amount of power is always consumed while the power cord is
connected to the wall outlet.

Replace the cover.
If the range or effectiveness of the remote control decreases,
replace the batteries. Use two R6(SUM-3)/AA(15F) type dry-cell
batteries.
• Supplied butteries are for initial setup. Replace for continued
use.
CAUTION:
Follow these precautions to avoid leaking or cracking cells:
• Place batteries in the remote control so they match the polarity:
(+) to (+) and (–) to (–).
• Use the correct type of batteries. Batteries that look similar may
differ in voltage.
• Always replace both batteries at the same time.
• Do not expose batteries to heat or flame.
When using the remote control, aim the remote control directly at
the remote sensor on the front panel.
Remote sensor
The receiver has a built-in cooling fan which operates
while the receiver is turned on. Be sure to leave enough
ventilation to obtain sufficient cooling effect.
CAUTION:
Do not connect the AC power plug to the wall outlet until all
connections are completed.
Checking the supplied accessories
Check to be sure you have all of the following supplied
accessories. If anything is missing, contact your dealer
immediately.

Therefore, if the TV is connected to the receiver through the VIDEO jack (MONITOR OUT), S-VIDEO jack (MONITOR OUT), or
COMPONENT VIDEO jacks (MONITOR OUT) and a playing video component is connected to the receiver through the HDMI terminal
(VCR (DBS) IN or DVR/DVD IN), you cannot view the playback picture on the TV.
Turn off all components before making connections.
• When you connect other components, refer also to their manuals.

Converting video signals into HDMI signals
This receiver can convert composite video, S-video, and component video signals into HDMI signals. To use this function, you need
to make the following procedure beforehand:
1 Connect your TV and this receiver with the HDMI cable.
2 Set the “VIDEO OUTPUT” (see page 26) setting to “VIDEO <HDMI>.”
3 Set the “VIDEO INPUT” (see page 17) setting according to the connection method for each video component.
NOTES
• When playing back audio and video with the HDMI connection, the HDMI lamp on the front panel lights up.
• Set the “AUDIO INPUT” setting to “HDMI” when you enjoy sound with the HDMI connection. See “Selecting the audio input setting” on
pages 16 and 17.
• With input video signals converted into HDMI signals, the playback picture may be distorted when you change the playback mode
(fast-forward, rewind, or pause, for example).
• When connecting a VCR or DBS to HDMI VCR (DBS) IN terminal, select “HDMI SELECT” (see page 26) correctly according to the
component you connect. If you do not, you cannot view the playback picture on the TV.
• By using a HDMI-DVI conversion cable, you can connect the source components or the TV with DVI output. When connecting those
components or TV, change the “AUDIO INPUT” setting to other than “HDMI.” (See pages 16 and 17.)
• This receiver is compatible with standard video formats. If non-standard video formats are coming in, the picture may not appear
properly on TV.
• The picture on the TV may not be the same aspect ratio as the ratio set on the source components.
• With the “AUDIO INPUT” set to “HDMI” (see pages 16 and 17), the sound may be transmitted to the speakers of the TV as well. To use
the speakers connected to the receiver only, set the TV volume to “0.”
• When enjoying multi channel PCM sound with the “AUDIO INPUT” set to “HDMI” (see pages 16 and 17), some functions are not
available. See page 11 for details.
• When you enjoy HDCP contents, sound and picture may not be transmitted to the speakers and TV for a few seconds in the beginning
for confirmation.

Audio/video connection
In addition to the HDMI terminal, this receiver is equipped with three
video terminals—composite video, S-video, and component video
terminals, and two audio jacks—analog discrete 5.1 channel audio input
jacks (DVD MULTI IN), and stereo audio jacks.
• If your video components have S-video (Y/C-separation) and/or
component video (Y, PB, PR) jacks, connect them using an Svideo cable (not supplied) or component video cable (not
supplied). By using these terminals, you can get a better picture
quality in the order:
DO NOT use a TV through a VCR or a TV with a built-in
VCR; otherwise, the picture may be distorted.
CAUTION:
If you connect a sound-enhancing device such as a graphic
equalizer between the source components and this receiver, the
sound output through this receiver may be distorted.
Component > S-video > Composite
If your video components have AV COMPU LINK terminal
IMPORTANT:
The video signals from one type of these input jacks are
transmitted only through the video output jacks of the same
type. Therefore, if a recording video component and a playing
video component are connected to the receiver through the video
terminals of different type, you cannot record the picture. In
addition, if the TV and a playing video component are connected
to the receiver through the video terminals of different type, you
cannot view the playback picture on the TV.
See also page 38 for detailed information about the connection
and the AV COMPU LINK remote control system.
Do not connect the AC power plug to the wall outlet until all connections are completed.

Creating realistic
sound fields
Introducing the Surround modes
■ Dolby Digital*
Dolby Digital is a digital signal compression method, developed by
Dolby Laboratories, and enables multi-channel encoding and
decoding.
• When Dolby Digital signal is detected through the digital input,
the
indicator lights up on the display.
Dolby Digital 5.1CH
Reproducing theater ambience
In a movie theater, many speakers are located on the walls to
reproduce impressive multi-channel sound, reaching you from all
directions.
With these many speakers, sound localization and sound
movement can be expressed.
Surround/DSP modes built in this receiver can create almost the
same Surround sound as you can feel in a real movie theater.
Dolby Digital 5.1CH (DOLBY DIGITAL) encoding method records
and digitally compresses the left front channel, right front channel,
center channel, left surround channel, right surround channel, and
LFE channel signals (total 6 channels, but the LFE channel is
counted as 0.1 channel. Therefore, called 5.1 channel).
Dolby Digital enables stereo surround sounds, and sets the cutoff
frequency of the surround treble at 20 kHz, compared to 7 kHz for
Dolby Pro Logic. As such, the sound movement and “being-there”
feeling are enhanced much more than Dolby Pro Logic.
Dolby Digital EX
Dolby Digital EX (DOLBY D EX) is a digital surround encoding
format that adds the third surround channels, called “surround
back.”
Compared to the conventional Dolby Digital 5.1CH, these newly
added surround back channels can reproduce more detailed
movements behind you while viewing the video software. In
addition, surround sound localization will become more stable.
■ Dolby Surround
Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II is a multi-channel playback format to convert
2-channel software into 5-channel (plus subwoofer). The matrixbased conversion method used for Dolby Pro Logic II makes no
limitation for the cutoff frequency of the surround treble and
enables stereo surround sound.
• This receiver provides three types of Dolby Pro Logic II
modes—Pro Logic II Movie (PLII MOVIE), Pro Logic II Music
(PLII MUSIC), and Pro Logic II Game (PLII GAME).
When Dolby Pro Logic II is activated, the
indicator lights
up on the display.

DTS Neo:6 is another conversion method to create 6-channel
(plus subwoofer) from analog/digital 2-channel software by using
the high precision digital matrix decoder used for DTS-ES Matrix
6.1ch.
• This receiver provides the following DTS Neo:6 modes—Neo:6
Cinema (NEO:6 CINEMA) and Neo:6 Music (NEO:6 MUSIC).
When one of them is activated, the NEO:6 indicator lights up on
the display.
PLIIx MOVIE
Suitable for playing any Dolby Surround encoded
software. You can enjoy a sound field with a
natural wraparound effect.
PLIIx MUSIC
Suitable for playing any 2-channel stereo
software. You can enjoy wide and deep 7.1channel sounds.
PLIIx GAME
Suitable for when playing a video game. You can
enjoy 7.1-channel sounds with “being there”
feeling. This mode is available only for an analog
2-channel signal.
• To enjoy software encoded with Dolby Digital, connect the
source component using the digital terminal on the rear of this
receiver. (See page 14.)
■ DTS**
DTS is another digital signal compression method, developed by
Digital Theater Systems, Inc., and enables multi-channel
encoding and decoding (1ch up to 6.1ch).
• When DTS signal is detected through the digital input, the
indicator lights up on the display.
NEO:6 CINEMA Suitable for playing movies. You can get the
same atmosphere with 2-channel software as
with 6.1-channel software. It is also effective for
playing software encoded with conventional
surround formats.
NEO:6 MUSIC
Suitable for playing music software. The front
channel signals bypass the decoder (resulting in
no loss of sound quality) and the surround
signals transmitted through the other speakers
expand the sound field naturally.
** “DTS”, “DTS-ES”, “Neo:6” and “DTS 96/24” are trademarks
of Digital Theater Systems, Inc.
When using Surround mode, the sounds come out of the
activated speakers which the Surround mode requires.
• If either “SURROUND SPK” or “CENTER SPK” is set to
“<NO>” in the speaker setting (see page 22), the
corresponding channel signals are allocated to and emitted
through the front speakers.
• If both “SURROUND SPK” and “CENTER SPK” are set to
“<NO>” in the speaker setting (see page 22), JVC’s original
3D-PHONIC processing (which has been developed to create
the surround effect through the front speakers only) is used. The
3D-PHONIC indicator lights up on the display.
DTS Digital Surround
DTS Digital Surround (DTS) is another discrete 5.1 channel
digital audio format available on CD, LD, and DVD software.
Compared to Dolby Digital, the DTS Digital Surround format has a
lower audio compression rate which enables it to add breadth and
depth to the sounds reproduced. As such, DTS Digital Surround
features natural, solid, and clear sound.
DTS Extended Surround (DTS-ES)
DTS-ES is another multi-channel digital encoding format.
It greatly improves the 360-degree surround impression and
space expression by adding the third surround channel—surround
back channel.
DTS-ES includes two signal formats with different surround signal
recording methods—DTS-ES Discrete 6.1ch (ES DISCRETE)
and DTS-ES Matrix 6.1ch (ES MATRIX).
DTS-ES Discrete 6.1ch has been designed to encode (and
decode) a 6.1-channel signal discretely to avoid interference with
each channel.
DTS-ES Matrix 6.1ch has been designed to add an extra
surround channel to DTS Digital Surround 5.1-channel. By using a
matrix encoding/decoding method, an additional “surround back”
channel signal is encoded (and decoded) in both the left and right
surround channel signals.
DTS 96/24
In recent years, there has been increasing interest in higher
sampling rates both for recording and for reproducing at home.
Higher sampling rates allow wider frequency range and greater bit
depths provide extended dynamic range.
DTS 96/24 is a multi-channel digital signal format (fs 96 kHz/24
bits) introduced by Digital Theater Systems, Inc. to deliver “betterthan-CD sound quality” into the home.
• When DTS 96/24 signal is detected, the
and 96/24
indicators light up. You can enjoy its 5.1-channel sound with fullquality.
About other digital signals
Linear PCM
Uncompressed digital audio data used for DVDs, CDs, and
Video CDs.
DVDs support 2 channels with sampling rates of 48/96 kHz, at
quantization of 16/20/24 bits. On the other hand, CDs and
Video CDs are limited to 2 channels with 44.1 kHz at 16 bits.
• When Linear PCM signal is detected, the LINEAR PCM
indicator lights up.
Multi channel PCM
Uncompressed multi channel digital audio data used for DVDAudios.
DVD-Audios support up to 5.1 channels with sampling rates of
44.1/48/88.2/96 kHz and 2 channels with sampling rates of
44.1/48/88.2/96/176/192 kHz, at quantization of 16/20/24 bits.
• When Multi channel PCM signal is detected, the LINEAR
PCM indicator lights up and “MULTI CH PCM” appears on
the display for a while.
Dual Mono
Dual Mono can be easily understood when you think of the
bilingual broadcast for TV programs (however, the Dual Mono
format is not identical with those analog formats).
This format is now adopted in Dolby Digital, DTS, and so on. It
allows two independent channels (called main channel and
sub-channel) to be recorded separately.
• You can select either channel you want to listen to (see
page 24).

Introducing the DSP modes
The sound heard in a concert hall, club, etc. consists of direct
sound and indirect sound—early reflections and reflections from
behind. Direct sounds reach the listener directly without any
reflection. On the other hand, indirect sounds are delayed by the
distances of the ceiling and walls. These direct sounds and
indirect sounds are the most important elements of the acoustic
surround effects.
The DSP modes can create these important elements, and give
you a real “being there” feeling.
Reflections from behind
Early reflections
When using the DAP mode, the sounds come out of all the
connected and activated speakers.
• If “SURROUND SPK” is set to “<NO>” in the speaker
setting (see page 22), JVC’s original 3D-PHONIC processing
(which has been developed to create the surround effect
through the front speakers only) is used.
The 3D-PHONIC indicator lights up on the display.
■ MONO FILM
In order to reproduce a more acoustic sound field in your listening
room while viewing monaural sound video software (analog and
2-channel digital signals including Dual Mono signal), you can use
this mode.
The surround effect will be added, and the sound localization of
actor’s words will be improved.
This mode cannot be used for multi-channel digital signals.
Direct sounds
The DSP modes include the following modes:
• Digital Acoustic Processor (DAP) modes—HALL1, HALL2, LIVE
CLUB, DANCE CLUB, PAVILION, THEATER1, THEATER2
• MONO FILM—Used for all types of 2-channel signals (including
Dual Mono signal)
• All Channel Stereo mode (ALL CH STEREO)
When one of the DSP modes is activated, the DSP indicator lights
up on the display.
When “MONO FILM” is used, sounds come out of all the
connected (and activated) speakers.
• If “SURROUND SPK” is set to “<NO>” in the speaker
setting (see page 22), JVC’s original 3D-PHONIC processing
(which has been developed to create the surround effect
through the front speakers only) is used.
The 3D-PHONIC indicator lights up on the display.
• If incoming signals change from 2-channel digital signal to
another digital signal type, “MONO FILM” is canceled and an
appropriate Surround mode is activated.
■ All Channel Stereo mode (ALL CH STEREO)
This mode can reproduce a larger stereo sound field using all the
connected (and activated) speakers. This mode cannot be used
if “SURROUND SPK” is set to “<NO>” in the speaker setting
(see page 22).
■ Digital Acoustic Processor (DAP) modes
You can use the following DAP modes in order to reproduce a
more acoustic sound field in your listening room.
HALL1
