Cautions on installation
Thank you for choosing the DENON AVC-A11XV Digital Surround A / V amplifier. This remarkable component has
been engineered to provide superb surround sound listening with home theater sources such as DVD, as well as
providing outstanding high fidelity reproduction of your favorite music sources.
As this product is provided with an immense array of features, we recommend that before you begin hookup and
operation that you review the contents of this manual before proceeding.
Noise or disturbance of the picture may be generated
if this unit or any other electronic equipment using
microprocesso s is used near a tuner or TV.
If this happens, take the following steps:
• Install this unit as far as possible from the tuner or
TV.
• Set the antenna wires from the tuner or TV away
from this unit’s power supply cord and input/output
connection cords.
• Noise or disturbance tends to occur particularly
when using indoor antennas or 300 Ω/ohms feeder
wires. We recommend using outdoor antennas
and 75 Ω/ohms coaxial cables.
Accessories

Cautions on handling
• Switching the input function when input
terminals are not connected.
A clicking noise may be produced if the input
function is switched when nothing is connected to
the input terminals. If this happens, either turn
down the MASTER VOLUME control knob or
connect components to the input terminals.
Before using
Pay attention to the following before using this
unit:
• Moving the set
To prevent short circuits or damaged wires in the
connection cords, always unplug the power supply
cord and disconnect the connection cords between
all other audio components when moving the set.
• Store these instructions in a safe place.
After reading, store these instructions along with
the warranty in a safe place.
• Whenever the power switch is in the STANDBY
state, the apparatus is still connected on AC line
voltage.
Please be sure to turn off the power switch or
unplug the cord when you leave home for, say, a
vacation.
• Muting of PRE OUT terminals and SPEAKER
terminals.
The PRE OUT terminals and SPEAKER terminals
include a muting circuit. Because of this, the output
signals are greatly reduced for several seconds after
the power switch is turned on or input function,
surround mode or any other-set up is changed. If
the volume is turned up during this time, the output
will be very high after the muting circuit stops
functioning. Always wait until the muting circuit
turns off before adjusting the volume.
• Note that the illustrations in these instructions
may differ from the actual set for explanation
purposes.
• Before turning the Power switch on
Check once again that all connections are proper
and that there are not problems with the connection
cords. Always set the power switch to the standby
position before connecting and disconnecting
connection cords.
Preparing the remote control unit
The included remote control unit (RC-995) can be used to operate not only the AVC-A11XV but other remote
control compatible DENON components as well. In addition, the memory contains the control signals for other
remote control units, so it can be used to operate non-DENON remote control compatible products.

2 Basic system layout (For a THX Ultra2 system)
• This section contains the basic steps necessary to configure the AVC-A11XV according to your listening room
environment and the source equipment and loudspeakers you are using.
• For optimum performance, we recommend using the Auto Setup function.
• If you wish, you can set the various settings manually without using Auto Setup (
page 53 ~ 57).
The following is an example of the basic layout for a system consisting of eight speaker systems and a television
monitor:

Set these at the sides of the TV or
screen with their front surfaces as flush
with the front of the screen as possible.
1) Measuring the background noise (noise in the room)
2) Determining whether or not speake s are connected
3) Checking the polarities of the speakers
Two surround back speakers are required to use the THX Ultra2 Cinema,THX Music mode and THX Games mode.
Set the surround back speakers so that the distance to the listening position is the same for both the left and
right speakers. It is also recommended that the deviations of the distance from the listening position to L and R
channel speake s (front left (FL) and front right (FR), surround left (SL) and surround right (SR), surround back left
(SBL) and surround back right (SBR)) is less than 60 cm (2 ft).

2 Connections
Speaker connections
• Connect the speaker terminals with the speakers
making sure that like polarities are matched (< with
<, > with >). Mismatching of polarities will result
in weak central sound, unclear orientation of the
various instruments, and the sense of direction of
the stereo being impaired.
• When making connections, take care that none of
the individual conductors of the speaker cable come
in contact with adjacent terminals, with other
speaker cable conductors, or with the rear panel.
NOTE:
NEVER touch the speaker terminals when the
power is on. Doing so could result in electric
shocks.
2 Speaker Impedance
• Speakers with an impedance of from 6 to 16 Ω/ohms
can be connected for use as front, center, surround
and surround back speakers.
• Be careful when using two pairs of surround
speakers (A + B) at the same time, since use of
speakers with an impedance of less than 8 Ω/ohms
will lead to damage.
• The protector circuit may be activated if the set is
played for long periods of time at high volumes
when speake s with an impedance lower than the
specified impedance are connected.
Connecting the speaker cables
1. Loosen
by
turning
counterclockwise.
Either tightly twist or terminate the
core wires.
2. Insert the cable.
3. Tighten
by
clockwise.
• The AVC-A11XV can be configured for 10 speaker playback using two pairs of surround speakers (A+B) and one
pair of surround back speakers as shown below.
• The output of each power amplifier can be assigned to any desired channel to best suit the application.
For details, refer to “Setting the Channel Setup” and “Setting the Power Amplifier Assignment” (
page 49,
50).
• When making connections, also refer to the operating instructions of the other components.
Protector circuit
This unit is equipped with a high-speed protection
circuit. The purpose of this circuit is to protect the
speakers under circumstances such as when the
output of the power amplifier is inadvertently
short-circuited and a large current flows, when the
temperature surrounding the unit becomes
unusually high, or when the unit is used at high
output over a long period which results in an
extreme temperature rise.
When the protection circuit is activated, the
speaker output is cut off and the power supply
indicator flashes. Should this occur, please follow
these steps: be sure to switch off the power of
this unit, check whether there are any faults with
the wiring of the speaker cables or input cables,
and wait for the unit to cool down if it is very hot.
Improve the ventilation condition around the unit
and switch the power back on.
If the protection circuit is activated again even
though there are no problems with the wiring or
the ventilation around the unit, switch off the
power and contact a DENON service center.
Note on speaker impedance
The protector circuit may be activated if the set is
played for long periods of time at high volumes
when speakers with an impedance lower than the
specified impedance (for example speakers with
an impedance of lower than 4 Ω/ohms) are
connected. If the protector circuit is activated, the
speaker output is cut off. Turn off the set’s power,
wait for the set to cool down, improve the
ventilation around the set, then turn the power
back on.

Auto Setup / Room EQ
The Auto Setup and Room EQ function of this unit
performs an analysis of the speaker system and
measures the acoustic characteristics of your room to
permit an appropriate automatic setting.
The AVC-A11XV’s Audyssey MultEQ XT function has
the feature that it provides the optimum listening
environment at all listening positions in the home
theater, where there are often multiple listeners
viewing programs together. To achieve this, it is first
necessary to use a microphone to measure test tones
generated from the different speakers at the various
listening positions. All this measured data is analyzed
with a unique method to comprehensively improve
acoustic characteristics in the listening area. For
optimum effectiveness, measurements should be
performed at six or more points. Move the
microphone successively within the listening area
surrounded by the speakers as shown on the diagram
below to measure the test tones. When listening to
music or viewing movies with the whole family, move
the microphone successively to the different positions
in which the members of the family sit (“ ” on the
diagram indicates the points of installation) and
measure repeatedly (Example q). Even if the number
of people using the home theater is small, taking
multiple measurements at or near the listening
positions makes it possible to correct the sound more
effectively (Example w).
The AVC-A11XV’s Room EQ function offers three
correction curves: “Audyssey”, “Front” and “Flat”.
These can be selected after performing the auto setup
procedure. Details of the different correction curves
are described below.
• Audyssey:
This adjusts the frequency response of all speakers
to correct the effects of room acoustics.
• Front:
This adjusts the characteristics of each speaker to
the characteristics of the front speakers.
• Flat:
This the frequency response of all speakers flat.
This is suitable for multi-channel music reproduction,
from discrete music sources such as Dolby Digital
5.1, DTS, DVD-Audio and Super Audio CD.

• When connecting via a DVI-D cable, no digital audio will be output from the HDMI Monitor Out connector.
• If your digital TV monitor only supports DVI-D, please obtain and use an HDMI-DVI conversion cable or adaptor,
available from your dealer.
NOTE:
• Commercially-available DVI cables are available in 24-pin and 29-pin types. The AVC-A11XV supports the
24-pin DVI-D cable.
• The AVC-A11XV supports HDCP. Use an HDCP-compatible HDMI monitor.
2 Connections with an HDMI/DVI-D conversion cable (adapter)
• The HDMI video stream signals (video signals) are theoretically compatible with DVI-D. When connecting to a
monitor, etc., equipped with DVI-D terminals, it is possible to connect using an HDMI/DVI-D conversion cable,
but depending on the combination of devices used the image might not be output.
• When using an HDMI/DVI-D conversion adapter, the image may not be output properly due to poor contact with
the connected cable, etc..
• For stable signal transfer, we recommend using cables that are a maximum of 5 meters in length.

mode without using the surround back speaker(s)
when the software is not recorded in Dolby Digital
EX or DTS-ES.
When AFDM is set to “ON” and the EX/ES flag is
detected automatically, the surround mode is fixed
according to the playing program sou ce.
In this case, the “MODE/SB CH OUT” parameter
can not be selected on the surround parameter
screen.

DTS NEO:6 Mode:
• Cinema:
This mode is optimum for playing movies. Decoding
is performed with emphasis on separation
performance to achieve the same atmosphere with
2-channel sources as with 6.1-channel sources.
This mode is effective for playing sources recorded
in conventional surround formats as well, because
the in-phase component is assigned mainly to the
center channel (C) and the reversed phase
component to the surround (SL, SR and SB
channels).
• Music:
This mode is suited mainly for playing music. The
front channel (FL and FR) signals bypass the decoder
and are played directly so there is no loss of sound
quality, and the effect of the surround signals output
from the center (C) and surround (SL, SR and SB)
channels add a natural sense of expansion to the
sound field.

to “Small” and the subwoofer to “Yes”.
For the majority of speaker system configurations,
using the SMALL setting for all main and surround
speakers and connected subwoofer(s) set to ON
will yield the best results.

Additional Information
Surround back speakers
Additional Information
The THX Surround EX format adds new “Surround
Back” (SB) channels to the conventional 5.1-channel
system. This makes it easy to achieve sound
positioned directly behind the listener, something that
was previously difficult with sources designed for
conventional multi surround speake s. In addition, the
acoustic image extending between the sides and the
rear is narrowed, thus greatly improving the
expression of the surround signals for sounds moving
from the sides to the back and from the front to the
point directly behind the listening position.
• Other types of audio:
These signals are designed to recreate a 360° sound
field using three to five speakers.
Optimum surround sound for
different sources
There are currently various types of multi-channel
signals (signals or formats with more than two
channels).
FL
SW
C
FR
2 Types of multi-channel signals
Dolby Digital (including Surround EX), DTS (including
Surround ES), DVD-Audio, and Super Audio CD.
Note on the above: MUSE 3.1 and MPEG multichannel audio are not available to North American
consumers – same is true for Dolby’s AAC.
“Source” here does not refer to the type of signal
(format) but the recorded content. Sou ces can be
divided into two major categories.
2 Types of sources
• Movie audio:
Signals created to be played in movie theaters. In
general sound is recorded to be played in movie
theate s equipped with multiple surround speake s,
regardless of the format (Dolby Digital, DTS, etc.).

In this case the speakers should surround the

as the front speakers.

To do so, in some cases the number of surround
speakers is increased (to four or eight) or speakers
with bipolar or dipolar properties are used.

ENGLISH
2 Number of surround back speakers
With THX Surround EX, the surround back channel
consists of one channel of playback signals, but we
recommend using two speakers. When using dipolar
speakers in particular, it is essential to use two
speakers.
Using two speakers results in a smoother blend with
the sound of the surround channels and better sound
positioning of the surround back channel when
listening from a position other than the center.
FR
These two types of sources thus have different
properties, and different speaker settings, particularly
for the surround speakers, are required in order to
achieve the ideal sound.
The AVC-A11XV’s surround speaker selection
function makes it possible to change the settings
acco ding to the combination of surround speakers
being used and the surrounding environment in
o der to achieve the ideal surround sound for all
sources. This means that you can connect a pair of
bipolar or dipolar surround speakers (mounted on
either side of the prime listening position), as well
as a separate pair of direct radiating (monopolar)
speake s placed at the rear corners of the listening
room.
Speaker(s) for one or two channels are required in
order to achieve a THX Surround EX system with the
AVC-A11XV. Adding these, however, allows you to
achieve stronger surround effects not only with
sources reco ded in THX Surround EX, but also with
conventional 2- to 5.1-channel sources. The WIDE
SCREEN mode is a mode for achieving surround
sound with up to 7.1 channels using surround back
speakers, for sources recorded in conventional Dolby
Surround as well as Dolby Digital 5.1-channel and DTS
Surround 5.1-channel sources. Furthermore, all the
Denon original surround modes (
page 29) are
compatible with 7.1-channel playback, so you can
enjoy 7.1-channel sound with any signal sou ce.
2 Placement of the surround left and
right channels when using surround
back speakers
Using surround back speakers greatly improves the
positioning of the sound at the rear. Because of this,
the surround left and right channels play an important
role in achieving a smooth transition of the acoustic
image from the front to the back. As shown on the
diagram above, in a movie theater the surround
signals are also produced from diagonally in front of
the listeners, creating an acoustic image as if the
sound were floating in space.
To achieve these effects, we recommend placing the
speakers for the surround left and right channels
slightly more towards the front than with conventional
surround systems. Doing so sometimes increases the
surround effect when playing conventional 5.1channel sources in the THX Surround EX mode.
Check the surround effects of the various modes
before selecting the surround mode.

Speaker setting examples
Here we describe a number of speaker settings for
different purposes. Use these examples as guides to
set up your system according to the type of speakers
used and the main usage purpose.
[1] For THX Surround EX systems
(using surround back speakers)
q Basic setting for primarily watching
movies
This is recommended when mainly playing movies
and using regular single way or 2-way speakers for the
surround speakers.
F ont speakers
Center speaker
• Set the front speakers, center speaker and
subwoofer in the same positions as in example (1).
• It is best to place the surround speakers directly at
the side or slightly to the front of the viewing
position, and 60 to 90 cm above the ears.
• Same as surround back speaker installation method
(1).
• Connect the surround speake s to the surround
speaker A terminals on the AVC-A11XV and set
settings on the setup menu to “A”. (This is the
factory default setting (
page 59).)
• The signals from the surround channels reflect off
the walls as shown on the diagram at the left,
creating an enveloping and realistic surround sound
presentation.
For multi-channel music sources however, the use
of bipolar or dipolar speakers mounted at the sides
of the listening position may not be satisfactory in
o der to create a coherent 360 degree surround
sound field. Connect another pair of direct radiating
speake s as described in example (3) and place
them at the rear corners of the room facing towards
the prime listening position.
• When using two surround back speakers, set them
at the back facing front and with both speakers at
the same distance from the listening point. When
using one surround back speaker, place it at the rear
center facing the front at a slightly higher position (0
to 20 cm) than the surround speakers.
• We recommend installing the surround back
speaker(s) at a slightly downward facing angle. This
effectively prevents the surround back channel
signals from reflecting off the monitor or screen at
the front center, resulting in interference and
making the sense of movement from the front to
the back less sharp.
• Connect the surround speakers to the surround
speaker A terminals on the AVC-A11XV and set
settings on the setup menu to “A”. (This is the
factory default setting (
page 59).)
w Setting for primarily watching
movies using diffusion type
speakers for the surround speakers
Monitor
Subwoofer
For the greatest sense of surround sound
envelopment, diffuse radiation speake s such as
bipolar types, or dipolar (THX) types, provide a wider
dispersion than is possible to obtain from a direct
radiating speaker (monopolar). Place these speakers
at either side of the prime listening position, mounted
above ear level.

[ As seen from above ]
• Set the front speakers slightly wider apart than the
setup for watching movies only and point them
toward the listening position in order assure clear
positioning of the sound.
• Set the center speaker in the same positions as in
example (1).
• Set surround speakers A for watching movies in the
positions described in example (1) or (2), depending
on the types of speakers used.
• Set surround speakers B for playing multi-channel
music at the same height as the front speakers and
slightly at an angle to the rear of the listening
position, and point them toward the listening
position.
• Connect the surround speakers for watching
movies to the surround speaker A terminals on the
AVC-A11XV, the surround speakers for playing multichannel music to the surround speaker B terminals.
Set the surround speaker selection on the setup
menu (
page 56).
• To activate the appropriate speakers for movies and
music, we suggest that during setup, choose Dolby
Digital/DTS with THX and Surround Speakers A (the
bipolar or dipolar speakers mounted at the sides of
the listening position).
Choose Dolby Digital/DTS without THX and
Surround Speakers B (the direct radiating speakers
mounted at the rear corne s of the listening room).
Then, by simply activating the THX function (used
during movie playback, the Surround A speakers are
automatically activated. For multi-channel music
listening (Dolby Digital or DTS music programs), turn
off the THX enhancements by touching the THX
button on the remote control, and the Surround B
speake s will be automatically activated.
Example:
Movie sources (Dolby, DTS surround, etc.)
“THX” or “THX 5.1” mode.........Speakers A
Music sources (DVD video, DTS CD, etc.)
“Dolby/DTS surround”................Speakers B
The speakers can be switched at the touch of a
button by turning HOME THX CINEMA on when
playing movies and off when playing multi-channel
music.

q Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is the multi-channel digital signal
format developed by Dolby Laboratories.
Dolby Digital consists of up to “5.1” channels front left, front right, center, surround left,
surround right, and an additional channel
exclusively reserved for additional deep bass
sound effects (the Low Frequency Effects – LFE –
channel, also called the “.1” channel, containing
bass frequencies of up to 120 Hz).
Unlike the analog Dolby Pro Logic format, Dolby
Digital’s main channels can all contain full range
sound information, from the lowest bass, up to
the highest frequencies – 22 kHz. The signals
within each channel are distinct from the othe s,
allowing pinpoint sound imaging, and Dolby Digital
offers tremendous dynamic range from the most
powerful sound effects to the quietest, softest
sounds, free from noise and distortion.
1 Some DVD digital outputs have the function of
switching the Dolby Digital signal output method
between “bitstream” and “(convert to) PCM”.
When playing in Dolby Digital surround on the
AVC-A11XV, switch the DVD player’s output
mode to “bitstream”. In some cases players are
equipped with both “bitstream + PCM” and
“PCM only” digital outputs. In this case connect
the “bitstream + PCM” terminals to the AVCA11XV.

• Dolby Surround is used for the sound tracks of
movies recorded on DVDs, LDs and video cassettes
to be played on stereo VCRs, as well as for the
stereo broadcast signals of FM radio, TV, satellite
broadcasts and cable TV.
• Decoding these signals with Dolby Pro Logic makes
it possible to achieve multi-channel surround

r Dolby Headphone
• This is a three-dimensional sound technology
developed jointly by Dolby Laboratories and Lake
Technology Ltd. of Australia for achieving surround
sound using regular headphones.
• Previously, when using headphones all the sounds
resonated inside the head and it was uncomfortable
to listen with headphones for long periods of time.
Dolby Headphone simulates speaker playback in a
room and places the sound at the front or the sides,
outside the head, to achieve a powerful sound like
the sound of movie or home theaters. This
technology is mainly for multichannel audio/video
equipment with Dolby Digital or Dolby Pro Logic
Surround decoding functions and works with a high
performance digital signal processing (DSP) chip.
• Dolby Headphone is effective not only for
multichannel sources but also for stereo programs.
• On the AVC-A11XV, it is possible to output signals
encoded in the Dolby Headphone mode from the
recording output terminal and record them on a
separate recorder.
[2] DTS Digital Surround
DTS Digital Surround (also called simply DTS) is a
multi-channel digital signal format developed by
Digital Theater Systems.
DTS offers the same “5.1” playback channels as
Dolby Digital (front left, front right and center,
surround left and surround right) as well as the stereo
2-channel mode. The signals for the different
channels are fully independent, eliminating the risk of
deterioration of sound quality due to interference
between signals, crosstalk, etc.
DTS features a relatively higher bit rate as compared
to Dolby Digital (1234 kbps for CDs and LDs, 1536
kbps for DVDs) so it operates with a relatively low
compression rate. Because of this the amount of data
is great, and when DTS playback is used in movie
theaters, a separate CD-ROM synchronized with the
film is played.
With LDs and DVDs, there is of course no need for an
extra disc; the pictures and sound can be recorded
simultaneously on the same disc, so the discs can be
handled in the same way as discs with other formats.
There are also music CDs recorded in DTS. These
CDs include 5.1-channel surround signals (compared
to two channels on current CDs). They do not include
picture data, but they offer surround playback on CD
playe s that are equipped with digital outputs (PCM
type digital output required).
DTS surround track playback offers the same
intricate, grand sound as in a movie theater, right in
your own listening room.
Additional Information
2 DTS compatible media and playback
methods
1 DTS signals are recorded in the same way on
CDs and LDs as PCM signals. Because of this,
the un-decoded DTS signals are output as
random “hissy” noise from the CD or LD player’s
analog outputs. If this noise is played with the
amplifier set at a very high volume, it may
possibly cause damage to the speakers. To avoid
this, be sure to switch the input mode to
“AUTO” or “DTS” before playing CDs or LDs
recorded in DTS. Also, never switch the input
mode to “ANALOG” or “PCM” during playback.
The same holds true when playing CDs or LDs
on a DVD player or LD/DVD compatible player.
For DVDs, the DTS signals are recorded in a
special way so this problem does not occur.

be processed erroneously, in which case they
cannot be decoded by the AVC-A11XV, or may
only produce noise. Before playing DTS signals
for the first time, turn down the master volume
to a low level, start playing the DTS disc, then
check whether the DTS indicator on the AVCA11XV (

the master volume.

[3] DTS-ES Extended Surround™
DTS-ES Extended Surround is a new multi-channel
digital signal format developed by Digital Theater
Systems Inc. While offering high compatibility with
the conventional DTS Digital Surround format, DTS-ES
Extended Surround greatly improves the 360-degree
surround impression and space expression thanks to
further expanded surround signals. This format has
been used professionally in movie theaters since
1999.
In addition to the 5.1 surround channels (FL, FR, C,
SL, SR and LFE), DTS-ES Extended Surround also
offers the SB (Surround Back, sometimes also
referred to as “surround center”) channel for
surround playback with a total of 6.1 channels. DTSES Extended Surround includes two signal formats
with different surround signal reco ding methods, as
described below.
2 DTS-ES™ Discrete 6.1
DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 is the newest recording format.
With it, all 6.1 channels (including the SB channel) are
recorded independently using a digital discrete
system. The main feature of this format is that
because the SL, SR and SB channels are fully
independent, the sound can be designed with total
freedom and it is possible to achieve a sense that the
acoustic images are moving about freely among the
background sounds surrounding the listener from 360
degrees.
Though maximum performance is achieved when
sound tracks recorded with this system are played
using a DTS-ES decoder, when played with a
conventional DTS decoder the SB channel signals are
automatically down-mixed to the SL and SR channels,
so none of the signal components are lost.
2 DTS-ES™ Matrix 6.1
With this format, the additional SB channel signals
undergo matrix encoding and are input to the SL and
SR channels beforehand. Upon playback they are
decoded to the SL, SR and SB channels. The
performance of the encoder used at the time of
reco ding can be fully matched using a high precision
digital matrix decoder developed by DTS, thereby
achieving surround sound more faithful to the
producer’s sound design aims than with conventional
5.1- or 6.1-channel systems.
In addition, the bitstream format is 100% compatible
with conventional DTS signals, so the effect of the
Matrix 6.1 format can be achieved even with 5.1channel signal sources. Of course it is also possible to
play DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 encoded sou ces with a DTS
5.1-channel decoder.
ENGLISH
Additional Information
When DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 or Matrix 6.1 encoded
sources are decoded with a DTS-ES decoder, the
format is automatically detected upon decoding and
the optimum playing mode is selected. However,
some Matrix 6.1 sou ces may be detected as having
a 5.1-channel format, so the DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 mode
must be set manually to play these sou ces. (For
instructions on selecting the surround mode (
page 25, 26).)
The DTS-ES decoder includes another function, the
DTS Neo:6 surround mode for 6.1-channel playback of
digital PCM and analog signal sources.
2 DTS Neo:6™ surround
This mode applies conventional 2-channel signals to
the high precision digital matrix decoder used for DTSES Matrix 6.1 to achieve 6.1-channel surround
playback. High precision input signal detection and
matrix processing enable full band reproduction
(frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz or greater) for
all 6.1 channels, and separation between the different
channels is improved to the same level as that of a
digital discrete system.
DTS Neo:6 surround includes two modes for
selecting the optimum decoding for the signal sou ce.
• DTS Neo:6 Cinema
This mode is optimum for playing movies. Decoding
is performed with emphasis on separation
performance to achieve the same atmosphere with
2-channel sources as with 6.1-channel sources.
This mode is effective for playing sources recorded
in conventional surround formats as well, because
the in-phase component is assigned mainly to the
center channel (C) and the reversed phase
component to the surround (SL, SR and SB
channels).
• DTS Neo:6 Music
This mode is suited mainly for playing music. The
front channel (FL and FR) signals bypass the
decoder and are played directly so there is no loss
of sound quality, and the effect of the surround
signals output from the center (C) and surround (SL,
SR and SB) channels add a natural sense of
expansion to the sound field.

[4] DTS 96/24
[5] Home THX Cinema Surround
2 Adaptive Decorrelation™
The sampling frequency, number of bits and number
of channels used for recording of music, etc., in
studios has been increasing in recent years, and there
are a growing number of high quality signal sources,
including 96 kHz/24 bit 5.1-channel sources.
For example, there are high picture/sound quality DVD
video sources with 96 kHz/24 bit stereo PCM audio
tracks.
However, because the data rate for these audio tracks
is extremely high, there are limits to recording them
on two channels only, and since the quality of the
pictures must be restricted it is common to only
include still pictures.
In addition, 96 kHz/24 bit 5.1-channel surround is
possible with DVD audio sou ces, but DVD audio
playe s are required to play them with this high
quality.
DTS 96/24 is a multi-channel digital signal format
developed by Digital Theater Systems Inc. in order to
deal with this situation.
Conventional surround formats used sampling
frequencies of 48 or 44.1 kHz, so 20 kHz was about
the maximum playback signal frequency. With DTS
96/24, the sampling frequency is increased to 96 or
88 2 kHz to achieve a wide frequency range of over 40
kHz.
In addition, DTS 96/24 has a resolution of 24 bits,
resulting in the same frequency band and dynamic
range as 96 kHz/24 bit PCM.
As with conventional DTS Surround, DTS 96/24 is
compatible with a maximum of 5.1 channels, so
sou ces reco ded using DTS 96/24 can be played in
high sampling frequency, multiple channel audio with
such normal media as DVD videos and CDs.
Thus, with DTS 96/24, the same 96 kHz/24 bit multichannel surround sound as with DVD-Audio can be
achieved while viewing DVD-Video images on a
conventional DVD-Video player ( 1). Furthermore,
with DTS 96/24 compatible CDs, 88 2 kHz/24 bit
multi-channel surround can be achieved using normal
CD/LD players ( 1).
Even with the high quality multi-channel signals, the
recording time is the same as with conventional DTS
surround sou ces.
What’s more, DTS 96/24 is fully compatible with the
conventional DTS surround format, so DTS 96/24
signal sources can be played with a sampling
frequency of 48 kHz or 44.1 kHz on conventional DTS
or DTS-ES surround decoders ( 2).
THX is an exclusive set of standards and technologies
established by the world-renowned film production
company, Lucasfilm Ltd. THX grew from George
Lucas’ personal desire to make your experience of the
film soundtrack, in both movie theaters and in your
home theater, as faithful as possible to what the
director intended.
Movie soundtracks are mixed in special movie
theate s called dubbing stages and are designed to be
played back in movie theate s with similar equipment
and conditions. The soundtrack created for movie
theate s is then transferred directly onto Laserdisc,
VHS tape, DVD, etc., and is not changed for playback
in a small home theater environment.
THX engineers developed patented technologies to
accurately translate the sound from the movie theater
environment into the home, correcting the tonal and
spatial errors that occur. On the AVC-A11XV, when the
Home THX Cinema mode is on, THX post-processing
is automatically added after the Dolby Pro Logic,
Dolby Digital or DTS decoder:
In a movie theater, a large number of surround
speakers help create an enveloping surround sound
experience, while in a home theater 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 theater.
2 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 are designed to be played back in large
movie theaters using very different professional
equipment. Re-Equalization restores the correct tonal
balance for listening to a movie soundtrack in a normal
home environment.
2 Timbre Matching™
The human ear changes our pe ception of a sound
depending on the direction from which the sound is
coming. In a movie theater, there is an array of
surround speakers so that the surround information is
all around you. In a home theater, only two speakers
located to the side of your head are used. 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.
1 A DVD player with DTS digital output capabilities
(for CD/LD players, a player with digital outputs
for conventional DTS CDs/LDs) and a disc
reco ded in DTS 96/24 are required.
2 The resolution is 24 or 20 bits, depending on the
decoder.

2 THX Ultra2™
Before any home theater component can be THX

above and also pass a rigorous series of quality and
performance tests. Only then can a product feature
the THX Ultra2 logo, which is your guarantee that the
Home Theater products you purchase will give you

Mode.
2 THX Ultra2 Cinema
THX Ultra2 Cinema mode plays 5.1 movies using all 8
speakers giving you the best possible movie watching
experience. In this mode, new THX 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 Ultra2 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 Ultra2 Cinema mode will apply
processing to provide optimum replay.

Additional Information
2 THX Music Mode
For the replay of 5.1 multi-channel music the THX
Music Mode should be selected. In this mode new
THX processing is applied to the surround channels of
all 5.1 encoded music sources such as DTS and Dolby
Digital to provide a wide stable rear soundstage.
2 THX Games Mode
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.
2 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 Ultra2 Cinema,
THX MusicMode and THX Games Mode.
2 Boundary Gain Compensation
If your chosen listening room layout (for practical or
aesthetic reasons) results in the most of the listeners
being close to the rear wall, the resulting bass level
can be sufficiently reinforced by the boundary that the
overall sound quality becomes “boomy”. THX Ultra2
receivers and controllers contain the BGC (Boundary
Gain Compensation) feature to provide an improved
bass balance. BGC can be selected by choosing “THX
Ultra2 Subwoofer–Yes” from the “Boundary Gain
Compensation” section of the THX Audio setup
menu.

[6] THX Surround EX
Audyssey MultEQ XT
In 1999, a new surround system was launched
simultaneously with the release of the movie “Star
Wars Episode I”. “Dolby Digital Surround EX” is a
new movie sound track that greatly enhances the
sense of spatial expression and the positioning of the
surround channel sound. The result is 360 degrees of
movement and moving sound effects that seem to
pass right over the listener’s head.
This system was developed jointly by THX and Dolby
Laboratories, fusing THX’s idea of improving spatial
expression and achieving a uniform 360 degree sound
positioning with Dolby Laboratories’ matrix encoding
technology. Emphasis was placed on compatibility
with the existing system Dolby Digital 5.1-channel,
and the new “surround back (SB) channel” was
added to achieve improvements over the
conventional 5.1-channel system in terms of the
positioning of the sound at the rear, the acoustic
image of sound moving from the two sides to the
back as well as sound moving from the front to the
center rear with the multi surround speaker systems
used in movie theaters, thereby enabling various
types of surround sound.
The surround back channel signal is a matrix-encoded
signal inserted into both the Dolby Digital SL
(surround left) and SR (surround right) channels. Upon
playback, the signals are decoded by a high precision
digital matrix decoder within the Dolby Digital decoder
into the SL, SR and SB channels and output as 6.1
channels of signals. With the AVC-A11XV, the signals
further undergo Home THX Cinema processing to
achieve a THX Surround EX system.
Even without the proper environment for playing the
SB channel, Dolby Digital Surround EX signals are
100% compatible with existing 5.1-channel playback
systems, so they can be played as such. In this case,
the SB channel signal is produced as a monaural
signal from both the SL and SR channels, so none of
the signal components are missing. The effects
specific to THX Surround EX (the sense of spatial
expression and the positioning of the sound),
however, are the same as with conventional 5.1channel surround systems.
There are several factors that can degrade the sound
from even the best loudspeakers in a listening room.
One of the most important is the interaction of sound
from the loudspeakers with large surfaces such as
walls, the floor, and the ceiling in the room. Even with
careful loudspeaker placement and acoustical
treatments, there are significant problems that are
caused by room acoustics. These include reflections
from nearby surfaces and standing waves that are
created between large parallel surfaces in the room.
In a home theater the situation is further complicated
because there are several listening locations. The
effects of room acoustics on the sound arriving at
each person’s ears are very different and the result is
a listening experience that is degraded in a different
way for every person in the room. It is not uncommon
to have variations in two adjacent seats that are as
large as 10 dB, particularly in the frequency range
below 250 Hz.
The solution to this problem is to apply room
correction after precisely measuring how each
loudspeaker interacts with the room. Because the
room causes variations in the frequency response of
the loudspeakers that are so large from seat to seat,
it is important to measure each loudspeaker at several
locations in the listening room. This should be done
even if there is only one listener. Measurement at a
single location is not representative of the acoustical
problems in the room and will, in most cases, degrade
overall performance.
Audyssey MultEQ XT is the only technology that can
achieve room correction for multiple listene s in a
large listening area. It does so by combining the data
collected at several points in the room from each
loudspeaker and then applying correction that
minimizes the acoustical effects of the room and is
matched to the frequency resolution of human
perception (known as psychoacoustics). Furthermore,
MultEQ XT correction is applied both in frequency and
time domains and so there are no artifacts (such as
smearing of sound or modal ringing) that are
sometimes associated with traditional methods of
room equalization.
In addition to correcting frequency response problems
over a wide listening area, Audyssey MultEQ XT
provides a completely automated sound system setup process. It identifies how many loudspeakers are
connected to the amplifiers and whether they are fullrange, satellites, or subwoofers. If there is a least one
subwoofer connected, Audyssey MultEQ XT
determines the optimum crossover frequency
between each satellite and the subwoofer(s). It
automatically checks the polarity of each loudspeaker
and alerts the user if there are any that may be wired
out-of-phase relative to the others. It measures the
distance to each loudspeaker from the main listening

position and adjusts the delays so that sound from
each loudspeaker arrives at the same time. Finally,
Audyssey MultEQ XT determines the playback level
of each loudspeaker and adjusts the volume trims so
that all levels are equal.
The two diagrams below illustrate two examples of
microphone placement for two types of seating
arrangements. There are six measuring positions
shown in each case. Increasing the number of
measuring points will provide a better sampling of the
listening area and produce better results. The dotted
line represents the area in which the room correction
provided by Audyssey MultEQ XT is optimal. The
microphone must be placed at ear height at each
location.

About IEEE1394
About HDMI
“HDMI” is the abbreviation of “High Definition
Multimedia Interface”.
This is a digital interface standard for next generation
TVs developed based on the DVI (Digital Visual
Interface) used for computer displays, etc., and
optimized for use in non-professional equipment.
With it, non-compressed digital video and multichannel audio signals can be transferred with a single
connector, eliminating the need to use separate
cables for the picture and sound and making it
possible to make connectors smaller. HDMI is also
compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital
Contents Protection), a technology for protecting
copyrights that encrypts digital video signals in the
same was as with DVI.
IEEE1394 is an international standa d established by
the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
(IEEE) of the United States.
The AVC-A11XV can be connected to an IEEE1394
compatible device using an IEEE1394 cable to enable
digital transfer of multi-channel audio sources (DVD
Audio discs, Super Audio CDs, etc.) with a single
cable.
• The AVC-A11XV’s transfer format is compatible with
A&M protocol.
In addition to A&M protocol, IEEE1394 transfer
formats also include MPEG-TS, DV, etc.
• The AVC-A11XV is compatible with a data transfer
speed of up to S400.
The IEEE1394 maximum data transfer speeds are
defined as approximately 100, 200 or 400 Mbps,
expressed respectively as S100, S200 and S400.
When S100 or S200 devices are connected, the
actually transfer rate may be slower than 400 Mbps,
depending on the device’s specifications. As far as
possible, interconnect devices with the same
maximum data transfer rate.
• The AVC-A11XV is compatible with the DTCP
(Digital Transmission Content Protection) system.
HDMI, the HDMI logo and High-Definition Multimedia
Interface are trademarks or registered trademarks of

High-grade LPCM 24-bit, 96-kHz, 6-channel or 24-bit,
192-kHz, 2-channel digital input is possible when the
AVC-A11XV is connected via a shielded twisted pair
(STP) cable to a Denon DVD player that supports
Denon Digital Link, Since Denon Digital Link uses lowvoltage differential signaling (LVDS), transfer
capabilities of greater than 1.2 Gbps at a differential
voltage of approximately 0 3Vpp are possible.
In order to play the sound of DVD Audio discs, Super
Audio CDs or DVDs (aside from freely copiable discs)
using IEEE1394 connections, both the player and
receiver must be compatible with the DTCP (Digital
Transmission Content Protection) system.
DTCP is a copy protection technology that involves
data encryption and authentication of the other
device. Refer to your player’s operating instructions.
