CONNECTIONS
■ Connecting to digital jacks
Before connecting components
This unit has digital jacks for direct transmission of
digital signals through either coaxial or fiber optic cables.
You can use the digital jacks to input PCM, Dolby Digital
and DTS bitstreams. Use digital connections if you wish
to enjoy the multi-channel sound track of DVD material,
etc. with DSP effects. All digital input jacks are
acceptable for 96 kHz sampling digital signals.
CAUTION
Do not connect this unit or other components to the
mains power until all connections between the
components have been completed.
Note
• The OPTICAL jack on this unit conform to the EIA standard.
If you use a fiber optic cable that does not conform to this
standard this unit may not function properly.
PREPARATION
• Be sure all connections are made correctly, that is to
say L (left) to L, R (right) to R, “+” to “+” and “–” to
“–”. Some components require different connection

Connecting the speakers
■ Speakers
This unit has been designed to provide the best soundfield quality with a 6-speaker system, using main left and
right speakers, rear left and right speakers, a center
speaker, and a rear center speaker. If you use different
brands of speakers (with different tonal qualities) in your
system, the tone of a moving human voice and other types
of sound may not shift smoothly. We recommend that you
use speakers from the same manufacturer or speakers
with the same tonal quality.
The main speakers should be high-performance models
and have enough power-handling capacity to accept the
maximum output of your audio system. The other
speakers do not have to be equal to the main speakers. For
precise sound localization, however, it is ideal to use the
models of equivalent performance with the main
speakers.
Use of a subwoofer expands your sound field
It is also possible to further expand your system with the
addition of a subwoofer. The use of a subwoofer is
effective not only for reinforcing bass frequencies from
any or all channels, but also for reproducing the LFE
(low-frequency effect) channel with high fidelity when
playing back Dolby Digital or DTS signals. The
YAMAHA Active Servo Processing Subwoofer System is
ideal for natural and lively bass reproduction.
Refer to the following diagram when you place the
speakers.
Main speaker (R)
Center speaker
Rear speaker (R)
Subwoofer
Main
speaker (L)
1.8 m (6 feet)
Rear center
speaker
Rear speaker (L)
Main speakers
Place the main left and right speakers an equal distance
from the ideal listening position. The distance between
each speaker and each side of the video monitor should
also be the same.
PREPARATION
The main speakers are used for the main source sound
plus effect sounds. They will probably be the speakers
from your present stereo system. The rear speakers are
used for effect and surround sounds. The center speaker is
for the center sounds (dialog, vocals, etc.). The rear center
speaker supplements the rear (left and right) speakers and
provides for more realistic front-to-back transitions.
■ Speaker placement
Center speaker
Align the front face of the center speaker with the front
face of your video monitor. Place the speaker as close to
the monitor as possible (such as directly over or under the
monitor) and centrally between the main speakers.
Rear speakers
Place these speakers behind your listening position,
facing slightly inwards, about 1.8 m (6 feet) above the
floor.
Rear center speaker
Place the rear center speaker in the center between the
rear left and right speakers at the same height from the
floor as the rear speakers.
Subwoofer
The position of the subwoofer is not so critical, because
low bass sounds are not highly directional. However, it is
better to place the subwoofer near the main speakers.
Turn it slightly toward the center of the room to reduce
wall reflections.
Note
• If you do not use any of effect speakers (rear, center and/or
rear center), change the settings of “SOUND 1 SPEAKER
SET” items at the set menu to direct signals to other terminals
you have connected speakers to.
CAUTION
Use magnetically shielded speakers. If these speakers
still create interference with the monitor, place the
speakers away from the monitor.

CONNECTIONS
■ Connections
Be sure to connect the left channel (L), right channel (R), “+” (red) and “–” (black) in accordance with the markers on
this unit, the speakers, and the speaker cables. If the connections are faulty, no sound will be heard from the speakers,
and if the polarity of the speaker connections is incorrect, the sound will be unnatural and lack bass.
CAUTION
• Use speakers with the specified impedance shown on the rear panel of this unit.
• Do not let the bare speaker wires touch each other or any metal part of this unit. This could damage this unit and/
or the speakers.
A speaker cord is actually a pair of insulated cables
running side by side. One cable is colored or shaped
differently, perhaps with a stripe, groove or ridge.

Input mode
AUTO:
In this mode, the input signal is selected
automatically as follows:
1) Digital signal
2) Analog signal
DTS:
In this mode, only digital input signals
encoded with DTS are selected, even if the
unit is receiving another signal
simultaneously.
ANALOG: In this mode, only analog input signals are
selected, even the unit is receiving digital
signals at the same time.
Notes
• When AUTO is selected, this unit automatically determines
the type of signal. If it detects a Dolby Digital or DTS signal,
the decoder automatically switches to the appropriate setting.
• When playing a disc encoded with Dolby Digital or DTS on
some LD or DVD players, there is a delay in sound output for
a moment when playback resumes after a search, because the
unit must select the digital signal again.
• When playing a LD source that has not been digitally
recorded, the unit may not output any sound for some LD
players. In this case, set the input mode to ANALOG.
The digital input jacks of this unit can handle 96 kHz
sampling digital signals. Note the following when a
digital signal with a sampling frequency greater than 48
kHz is input to this unit:
• You cannot use any DSP programs.
• The unit will output sound as 2-channel stereo from the
main left and right speakers only. Therefore, you
cannot adjust the level of the effect speakers while
listening to such a source.
■ Notes on playing DTS-CD/LDs
• If the digital output data of the player has been
processed in any way, the unit may not be able to
perform DTS decoding even if there is a digital
connection between this unit and the player.
• If you play a source encoded with a DTS signal and set
the input mode to ANALOG, the unit may reproduce
the noise of an unprocessed DTS signal. In this case,
connect the source to a digital input jack on this unit
and set the input mode to AUTO or DTS.
• If you switch the input mode to ANALOG while
playing a source encoded with a DTS signal, the unit
does not output any sound.
• If you play a source encoded with a DTS signal with
the input mode set to AUTO;
– The unit automatically switches to the DTSdecoding mode (The “t” indicator lights up)
after detecting the DTS signal. When playback of
the DTS source is completed, the “t” indicator
may flash. While this indicator is flashing, the unit
can only reproduce DTS source. If you want to play
a normal PCM source immediately, change the input
mode back to AUTO.
– When the input mode is set to AUTO and a search
or skip operation is performed during playback of a
DTS source, the “t” indicator may flash. If this
state continues for longer than 30 seconds, the unit
will automatically switch from “DTS-decoding”
mode to PCM digital signal input mode. The “t”
indicator will turn off.

DIGITAL SOUND FIELD PROCESSING (DSP)
Understanding sound fields
A sound field is defined as the “characteristic sound reflections of a
particular space.” In concert halls and other music venues, we hear
early reflections and reverberations as well as the direct sound
produced by the artist(s). The variations in the early reflections and
other reverberations among the different music venues is what gives
each venue its special and recognizable sound quality.
YAMAHA sent teams of sound engineers all around the world to
measure the sound reflections of famous concert halls and music
venues, and collect detailed sound field information such as the
direction, strength, range, and delay time of those reflections. Then
we stored this enormous amount of data in the ROM chips of this
unit.
■ Recreating a sound field
Recreating the sound field of a concert hall or an opera house requires localizing the virtual sound sources in your
listening room. The traditional stereo system that uses only two speakers is not capable of recreating a realistic sound
field. YAMAHA’s DSP requires four effect speakers to recreate sound fields based on the measured sound field data.
The processor controls the strength and delay time of the signals output from the four effect speakers to localize the
virtual sound sources and fully encompass the listener.
Hi-Fi DSP programs
The following list gives you a brief description of the sound fields produced by each of the DSP programs. Keep in
mind that most of these are precise digital recreations of actual acoustic environments.

CINEMA-DSP
Sound design of CINEMA-DSP
Filmmakers intend for the dialog to be located right on the screen, the effect sound a little farther back, the music spread
even farther back, and the surround sound around the listener. Of course, all of these sounds must be synchronized with
the images on the screen.
CINEMA-DSP is an upgraded version of YAMAHA DSP specially designed for movie soundtracks. CINEMA-DSP
integrates the DTS, Dolby Digital, and Dolby Pro Logic surround sound technologies with YAMAHA DSP sound field
programs to provide a surround sound field. It recreates comprehensive movie sound design in your audio room. In
CINEMA-DSP sound field programs, YAMAHA’s exclusive DSP processing is added to the Main left and right, and
Center channels, so the listener can enjoy realistic dialogue, depth of sound, smooth transition between sound sources,
and a surround sound field that goes beyond the screen.
When a DTS or Dolby Digital signal is detected, the CINEMA-DSP sound field processor automatically chooses the
most suitable sound field program for that signal.

In addition to the DSP, this unit is equipped with a variety of precise decoders; Dolby Pro Logic decoder for Dolby
Surround sources, Dolby Pro Logic II decoder for Dolby Surround and 2-channel sources, Dolby Digital/DTS decoder
for multi-channel sources and Dolby Digital EX or DTS-ES decoder for adding a rear center channel. You can select
CINEMA-DSP programs to optimize these decoders and the DSP sound patterns depending on the input source.
CINEMA-DSP Programs
The following list gives you a brief description of the sound fields produced by each of the DSP programs. Keep in
mind that most of these are precise digital recreations of actual acoustic environments. Select the DSP program that you
feel sounds best regardless of the name and description given for it below.

Features
Spectacle
This program creates the extremely wide sound field of a 70-mm movie theater. It
precisely reproduces the source sound in detail, making both the video and the sound field
incredibly real. This is ideal for any kind of video source encoded with Dolby Surround,
Dolby Digital or DTS (especially large-scale movie productions).
Sci-Fi
This program clearly reproduces dialog and sound effects in the latest sound form of
science fiction films, thus creating a broad and expansive cinematic space amid the
silence. You can enjoy science fiction films in a virtual-space sound field that includes
Dolby Surround, Dolby Digital and DTS-encoded software employing the most advanced
techniques.
Adventure
This program is ideal for precisely reproducing the sound design of the newest 70-mm and
multichannel soundtrack films. The sound field is made to be similar to that of the newest
movie theaters, so the reverberations of the sound field itself are restrained as much as
possible.
General
This program is for reproducing sounds from 70-mm and multichannel soundtrack films,
and is characterized by a soft and extensive sound field. The presence sound field is
relatively narrow. It spatially spreads all around and toward the screen, restraining the
echo effect of conversations without losing clarity.
Straight Decode
The built-in decoder reproduces source sounds and sound-effects precisely.
No DSP effect is applied in this program.
Enhanced Mode
This program ideally simulates the multi-surround speaker systems of the 35-mm film
theaters. Dolby Pro Logic decoding, Dolby Digital decoding or DTS decoding and digital
sound field processing create precise effects without altering the original sound orientation.
The surround effects produced by this sound field wrap around the viewer naturally from
the back to the left and right, and toward the screen.
Straight Decode
This unit is equipped with various precise decoders;
• Dolby Digital/DTS decoder for multi-channel reproduction of the original sound
• Dolby Digital EX/DTS ES decoder for an additional rear center channel
• Dolby Pro Logic/Pro Logic II/DTS Neo:6 decoder for multi-channel reproduction of 2-channel sources
Select any of the Straight Decode modes in Program 9 (except for the sub-program “Enhanced”) to use any of these
decoders for reproducing the original sound without any sound effects added. In this case, no DSP effect is applied and
the DSP indicator turns off.
Note
• When playing a monaural source with a CINEMA DSP program, the source signal is directed to the center channel, and the main
and rear speakers output effect sounds.

Sound field effects
The 6-channel soundtracks found on 70-mm film produce precise sound field localization and rich, deep sound without
using matrix processing. This unit’s MOVIE THEATER programs provide the same quality of sound and sound
localization that 6-channel soundtracks do. The built-in Dolby Digital or DTS decoder brings the professional-quality
sound designed for movie theaters into your home. With this unit’s MOVIE THEATER programs, you can use Dolby
Digital or DTS technology to recreate a dynamic sound that gives you the feeling of being in a public theater.
■ Dolby Digital/DTS + DSP sound field effect
Presence DSP
sound field
Left surround DSP
sound field
These programs use YAMAHA’s tri-field DSP processing
on each of the Dolby Digital or DTS signals for the front,
left surround, and right surround channels. This
processing enables this unit to reproduce the immense
sound field and surround expression of a Dolby Digitalor DTS-equipped movie theater without sacrificing the
clear separation of all channels.
Right surround DSP
sound field
These programs provide you with the maximum experience of the spacious surround effects by adding an extra rear
center DSP sound field created from the rear center channel.
■ Dolby Pro Logic + DSP sound field effect
Presence DSP
sound field
Most movie material has 4-channel (left, center, right, and
surround) sound information encoded by Dolby Surround
matrix processing and stored on the left and right tracks.
These signals are processed by the Dolby Pro Logic
decoder. The MOVIE THEATER programs are designed
to recreate the spaciousness and delicate nuances of
sound that tend to be lost in the encoding and decoding
processes.

RECEIVING RDS STATIONS
RDS (Radio Data System) is a data transmission system used by FM stations in many countries.
RDS data contains a variety of information such as PS (Program Service name), PTY (Program Type), RT (Radio Text),
CT (Clock Time), EON (Enhanced Other Networks), and others.
Description of RDS data
This unit can receive, PS, PTY, RT, CT, and EON data
when tuned to stations broadcasting RDS.
■ PS (Program Service name) mode:
The name of the RDS station being received is displayed.
■ PTY (Program Type) mode:
Changing the RDS mode
This unit provides four modes for displaying RDS data.
The PS, PTY, RT and/or CT mode indicators that
correspond to the RDS data services offered by the station
light up on the front panel display when an RDS station is
being received. Press RDS MODE/FREQ repeatedly to
cycle the display through the RDS data offered by the
transmitting station in the order shown below.
There are 15 program types used to classify RDS stations.

Notes
• Do not press RDS MODE/FREQ when an RDS station is
being received until one or more RDS mode indicators light
up on the front panel display. You cannot change the mode if
you press this button prior to this. This is because this unit has
not finished receiving all of the RDS data on the station.
• RDS data not offered by the station cannot be selected.
• This unit cannot utilize the RDS data service if the signal
received is not strong enough. In particular, the RT mode
requires a large amount of data, so it is possible that the RT
mode may not be displayed even if other RDS modes (PS,
PTY, etc.) are displayed.
• Sometimes, RDS data cannot be received in poor reception
conditions. If this is the case, press TUNING MODE so that
the “AUTO” indicator disappears from the front panel display.
Although this will change the reception mode to monoaural,
RDS data may be displayed when you change the display to
RDS mode.
• If the signal strength is weakened by external interference
during the reception of an RDS station, the RDS data service
may cut off suddenly and “...WAIT” will appear on the front
panel display.

CODE SET
The DTS signal is a digital bitstream. Attempting to
digitally record the DTS bitstream will result in noise
being recorded. Therefore, if you want to use this unit to
record sources that have DTS signals recorded on them,
the following considerations and adjustments need to be
made.

STANDBY
• Do a test recording before you start an actual recording.
• When this unit is set in standby mode, you cannot record
between the components connected to it.
• DSP programs and volume, bass, and treble settings do not
affect the recorded material.
• You cannot record from a source connected to the 6CH
INPUT jacks on this unit.
• Input sources are not output to the same OUT (REC) channel.
(For example, the signal input from VCR IN is not output to
VCR OUT.)
• Check the copyright laws in your country if you wish to
record from records, CDs, radio, etc. Recording of
copyrighted material may infringe copyright laws.
If you playback a video source that uses scrambled or
encoded signals to prevent it from being dubbed, the
picture itself may be disturbed due to those signals.

SOUND 2 SP DISTANCE
(speaker distance)
Use this feature to adjust the delay applied to center and
rear center channel sounds. This feature works when there
is sound output from the center speakers with a source
such as Dolby Digital or DTS. Ideally, the center speaker
and the rear speakers should be the same distance from
the main listening position as the left and right main
speakers. However, in most home situations, the center
speaker or the rear center speaker is placed in line with
the main speakers or the rear speakers. By delaying the
sound from the center speaker and the rear speakers, you
can adjust the apparent distance from the center speaker
and the rear speakers to the main listening position to
make it seem the same as the distance between the
listening position and main left and right speakers.

GLOSSARY
■ Dolby Surround
Dolby Surround uses a 4 channel analog recording system
to reproduce realistic and dynamic sound effects: 2 main
left and right channels (stereo), a center channel for
dialog (monaural), and a rear channel for special sound
effects (monaural). The rear channel reproduces sound
within a narrow frequency range.
Dolby Surround is widely used with nearly all video tapes
and laser discs, and in many TV and cable broadcasts as
well. The Dolby Pro Logic decoder built into this unit
employs a digital signal processing system that
automatically stabilizes the volume on each channel to
enhance moving sound effects and directionality.
■ Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is a digital surround sound system that
gives you completely independent multi-channel audio.
With 3 front channels (left, center, and right), and 2 rear
stereo channels, Dolby Digital provides 5 full-range audio
channels. With an additional channel especially for bass
effects, called LFE (low frequency effect), the system has
a total of 5.1 channels (LFE is counted as 0.1 channel).
By using 2-channel stereo for the rear speakers, more
accurate moving sound effects and surround sound
environment are possible than with Dolby Surround. The
wide dynamic range (from maximum to minimum
volume) reproduced by the 5 full-range channels and the
precise sound orientation generated using digital sound
processing provide listeners with previously unheard of
excitement and realism.
With this unit, any sound environment from monaural up
to a 5.1-channel configuration can be freely selected for
your enjoyment.
Dolby Digital EX creates 6 full-bandwidth output
channels from 5.1-channel sources. This is done using a
matrix decoder that derives 3 surround channels from the
2 in the original recording. For the best results, Dolby
Digital EX should be used with movie sound tracks
recorded with Dolby Digital Surround EX. With this
additional channel, you can experience more dynamic and
realistic moving sound especially with scenes with “flyover” and “fly-around” effects.
■ Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II is an improved technique used to
decode vast numbers of existing Dolby Surround
software. This new technology enables a discrete 5channel playback with 2 main left and right channels, 1
center channel, and 2 rear left and right channels (instead
of only 1 rear channel for conventional Pro Logic
technology). A music mode is also available for 2-channel
sources in addition to the movie mode.
■ DTS (Digital Theater Systems) Digital
Surround
DTS digital surround was developed to replace the analog
soundtracks of movies with a 6-channel digital sound
track, and is now rapidly gaining popularity in movie
theaters around the world. Digital Theater Systems Inc.
has developed a home theater system so that you can
enjoy the depth of sound and natural spatial
representation of DTS digital surround in your home.
This system produces practically distortion-free 6-channel
sound (technically, a left, right and center channels, 2 rear
channels, plus an LFE 0.1 channel as a subwoofer, for a
total of 5.1 channels).
The unit incorporates DTS-ES decoder that enables 6.1channel reproduction by adding the rear center channel to
existing 5.1-channel format.
■ Neo:6
Neo:6 decodes the conventional 2-channel sources for 6
channel playback by a specific decoder. It enables
playback with the full-range of channels with higher
separation just like digital discrete signal playback. Two
modes are available; “Music mode” for playing music
sources and “Cinema mode” for movies.
■ LFE 0.1 channel
This channel is for the reproduction of low bass signals.
The frequency range for this channel is 20 Hz to 120 Hz.
This channel is counted as 0.1 because it only enforces a
low frequency range compared to the full-range
reproduced by the other 5 channels in a Dolby Digital or
DTS 5.1 channel systems.
■ CINEMA DSP
Since the Dolby Surround and DTS systems were
originally designed for use in movie theaters, their effect
is best felt in a theater having many speakers and
designed for acoustic effects. Since home conditions,
such as room size, wall material, number of speakers, and
so on, can differ so widely, it’s inevitable that there are
differences in the sound heard as well. Based on a wealth
of actually measured data, YAMAHA CINEMA DSP uses
YAMAHA original sound field technology to combine
Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Digital and DTS systems to
provide the visual and audio experience of movie theater
in the listening room of your own home.
■ SILENT CINEMA
YAMAHA has developed a natural, realistic sound effect
DSP algorithm for headphones.
Parameters for headphones have been set for each sound
field so that accurate representations of all the sound field
programs can be enjoyed using headphones.

GLOSSARY
■ Virtual CINEMA DSP
YAMAHA has developed a virtual CINEMA DSP
algorithm that allows you to enjoy DSP sound field
surround effects even without any rear speakers by using
virtual rear speakers.
It is even possible to enjoy virtual CINEMA DSP using a
minimal 2-speaker system that does not include a center
speaker.
■ PCM (Linear PCM)
Linear PCM is a signal format under which an analog
audio signal is digitized, recorded and transmitted without
using any compression. This is used as a method of
recording CDs and DVD audio. The PCM system uses a
technique for sampling the size of the analog signal per
very small unit of time. Standing for “pulse code
modulation”, the analog signal is encoded as pulses and
then modulated for recording.
■ Sampling frequency and number of
quantized bits
When digitizing an analog audio signal, the number of
times the signal is sampled per second is called the
sampling frequency, while the degree of fineness when
converting the sound level into a numeric value is called
the number of quantized bits.
The range of rates that can be played back is determined
based on the sampling rate, while the dynamic range
representing the sound level difference is determined by
the number of quantized bits. In principle, the higher the
sampling frequency, the wider the range of frequencies
that can be played back, and the higher the number of
quantized bits, the more finely the sound level can be
reproduced.
■ Component video signal
ADDITIONAL
INFORMATION
With the component video signal system, the video signal
is separated into the Y signal for the luminance and the PB
and PR signals for the chrominance. Color can be
reproduced more faithfully with this system because each
of these signals is independent. The component signal is
also called the “color difference signal” because the
luminance signal is subtracted from the color signal.
A monitor with component input jacks is required in
order to use the component signal for output.
