FOREWORD
PRECAUTIONS
This section must be read before any connection is made to the
mains supply.
The following precautions should be taken when operating the
equipment.
WARNINGS
GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
When siting the equipment ensure that:
— the ventilation holes are not covered;
— air is allowed to circulate freely around the equipment
— it is on a vibration free-surface;
— it will not be exposed to interference from an external source;
— it will not be exposed to excessive heat, cold, moisture or dust;
— it will not be exposed to direct sunlight;
— it will not be exposed to electrostatic discharges
Never place heavy objects on the equipment.
If a foreign body or water does enter the equipment, contact your
nearest dealer or service centre.
Do not pull out the plug by pulling on the mains lead, hold the plug.
It is advisable when leaving the house, or during a thunderstorm, to
disconnect the equipment from the mains supply.
Do not expose the equipment to rain or moisture.
Do not remove the cover from the equipment.
Do not push anything inside the equipment through the
ventilation holes.
Do not handle the mains lead with wet hands.
EQUIPMENT MAINS WORKING SETTING
Your Marantz product has been prepared to comply with the
household power and safety requirements that exist in your area.
PS-17 can be powered by 230 V AC only.
IMPORTANT: (For UK version)
This apparatus is fitted with an approved moulded 13 Amp plug.
To change a fuse in this type of plug proceed as follows:
1. Remove fuse cover and fuse.
2. Fix new fuse which should be a BS1362 13A, A.S.T.A. or BSI
approved type.
3. Refit the fuse cover.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your socket outlets, it should be cut
off and an appropriate plug fitted in its place.
If the mains plug contains a fuse, this should have a value of 13A. If a
plug without a fuse is used, the fuse at the distribution board should
not be greater than 5A.
PRECAUTIONS IN CONNECTION
n Be sure to unplug the power cable from the AC outlet or turn off the
POWER switch before proceeding with any connection.
n Connect one cable at a time observing the “input” and “output”.
This will avoid any cross connection between channels and signal
inputs and outputs.
n Insert the plugs securely. Incomplete connection may result in noise.
n Prior to connecting other audio and video equipment to the PS-17,
please read their owner’s manuals.
Note:
The severed plug must be destroyed to avoid a possible shock
hazard should it be inserted into a 13A socket elsewhere.
INSTALLATION
How to connect a plug
I f t h i s u n i t o r a n o t h e r e l e c t r o n i c d e vi c e i n c o r p o r a t i n g a
microcomputer is used at the same time with the tuner or television,
picture disturbance or noise may occur. In such a case, install the
unit according to the following guide points.
n Separate the unit as far as possible from the tuner or television.
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
BLUE—“NEUTRAL” (“N”)
BROWN—“LIVE” (“L”)
1. The BLUE wire must be connected to the terminal which is marked
with the letter “N” or coloured BLACK.
2. The BROWN wire must be connected to the terminal which is marked
with the letter “L” or coloured RED.
3. Do not connect either wires to the earth terminal in the plug which is
marked by the letter “E” or by the safety earth symbol or coloured
green or green-and-yellow.
Before replacing the plug cover, make certain that the cord grip is
clamped over the sheath of the lead — not simply over the two wires.
n Place the antenna wire for the tuner or TV apart from the power
cable and audio and video connection cables of this unit.
n Since the phenomenon is likely to occur when using an indoor
antenna and/or 300-ohm feeder wire, we recommend using an
outdoor antenna and 75-ohm coaxial cable.

DESCRIPTION
DTS was introduced in 1994 to provide 5.1 channels of discrete
digital audio into home theater systems.
DTS brings you premium quality, discrete multi-channel digital sound
to both movies and music.
DTS is a multi-channel sound system designed to create full range
digital sound reproduction.
The no compromise DTS digital process sets the standard of quality
for cinema sound by delivering an exact copy of the studio master
recordings to neighborhood and home theaters.
Now, every moviegoer can hear the sound exactly as the moviemaker
intended.
DTS can be enjoyed in the home for either movies or music on DVD’s,
LD’s, and CD’s.
Dolby Digital lets you enjoy Digital TV, Digital Satellite as well as DVD
and LD software in digital surround, which is the next step above
Dolby Pro Logic.
In comparison with Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Digital can provide
separate left and right surround channels, for more precise
localization of sounds and a more convincing, realistic ambience.
And, with Dolby Digital, all five main channels can be full range and a
subwoofer can be added to each channel ,if desired. By providing up
to 5.1channels of digital audio independently, Dolby Digital lets you
enjoy better sound quality and more powerful presence than
conventional Dolby Surround.

ENGLISH
q POWER switch and STANDBY indicator
!2 VOLUME control knob
You can turn on and off the unit’s power using the front panel power
switch.
However, if you turn the unit off with the front panel switch, the unit
goes completely off rather than to the “standby mode” (Red LED
indicator light glows in the standby mode).
The unit cannot be turned on with the remote control when it is not in
the standby mode. When the red LED is on, the unit can be turned on
via the remote control or by pressing any input selector button on the
front panel.
Adjusts the overall sound level. Turning the control clockwise
increases the sound level.
The sound level operations can also be controlled from the provided
remote controll unit.
!3 Warm-up meter
With any audio unit, the real sound quality cannot be obtained
immediately after the power is turned on, and warming up is required
to make the unit exhibit its full performance. As time passes after the
power has been turned ON, the temperatures of different parts of the
unit become constant and the electrolytic capacitors become active.
This meter allows to check the warm-up condition of the unit.
The meter needle starts to swing gradually in a little while after the
power is turned ON and reaches about 2/3 of the meter’s full scale in
about 30 minutes. Now the unit has almost been warmed up and can
reproduce music with its original performance.
The meter positions immediately after turning power on and at the
end of warming up and the time taken for warming up are variable
depending on the temperature, ventilation and other conditions of the
listening room where the unit is located.

Front speakers (left, right and center)
The midrange and high-range speaker units of the three front
speakers should be arranged at the same height as far as this is
possible.
This means placing the center speaker either directly on top of the TV
set or directly underneath it.
A layout like this necessitates the use of the kind of center speaker
which is protected from magnetic fields.
The ideal number of channels in a system for reproducing surround
sound with this unit is 8, namely, the front left and front right, center,
left surround and right surround, back left and back right surround,
and subwoofer.
The number of speakers minimally required in a system for surround
sound reproduction is 4, namely, the front left and right speakers and
the left and right surround speakers. However, 6.1-channel surround
sound cannot be reproduced with this kind of setup.
With this unit, the system is set to match the number and positions of
the speakers and the output characteristics of their bass range.
POSITIONING THE SPEAKERS
The speakers are placed in different positions depending on the size
of the room and other factors present. The basic layout of the
speakers and some layout tips are given below.

Notes
• The PHONO is fixed to the analog input, and cannot be selected
for any digital input.
• When a DTS-LD or DTS-CD is playing, this setup is not
available.
This is to avoid noise being generated from the analog input.
In this case, the DTS audio must be played through the player’s
digital output to the digital input on the PS-17. This is because
the DTS soundtracks replace the standard PCM soundtracks on
DTS discs.
• The PS-17 does not switch from digital input to analog input or
vice versa automatically.
In case both digital and analog inputs are connected to the PS17,if you desire to switch to analog input temporarily, you can

First, set whether the speakers are connected to the connected
channels.
SPKR SIZE
This menu enters the information about which type of speakers will be
used for each channel.
In turn, these settings will determine which speakers receive low
frequency information.
For the purpose of establishing proper bass reproduction, use the
LARGE settings if the speaker being used at any position is a
traditional full-range loudspeaker that is capable of reproducing
sound below 100 Hz and you are not using a subwoofer.
Use the SMALL setting for smaller, frequency-limited speakers that are not
able to reproduce sounds below 100Hz and you are using a subwoofer.
Low frequencies will be diverted from the speaker to the subwoofer.
Note that when “small” speakers are used it is advisable to install a
separate subwoofer, especially if you wish to appreciate the full
impact of a good home theater soundtrack.

The PS-17 incorporates digital signal processors (DSP) which can reproduce various surround effects you experience in concert halls and movie
theaters, etc. Nine Surround Modes, are provided to reproduce a variety of surround sound effects, according to the content of the source to be played.
FEATURES
Surroud mode
AUTO
When this mode is selected, the receiver determines whether the digital input signal is Dolby Digital, PCM-audio or DTS.
Note:
When a Dolby Digital or DTS signal is input, the number of channels for which the corresponding signal is encoded will be
played.
Inputting a Dolby Digital two channel signal with Dolby surround status automatically subjects that signal to Pro-Logic
processing before play.
96 kHz source material can be play back in this mode.
Analog input sound is reproduced in stereo.
Dolby Virtual surround sound playback is initiated automatically if 5.1-channel signals or Dolby Surround signals are input
when the setting does not call for the surround speakers to be used.
DOLBY
With a setting which does not call for the surround speakers to be used, Dolby Virtual surround sound playback is initiated.
Using only the front left and right speakers, virtual surround sound playback results to give the impression that surround
speakers are present.
(Note: The effect will differ depending on the playback source and viewing/listening position.)
With a setting which calls for the surround speakers to be used, the Dolby Digital 5.1-channel signal input is played back as
is. On the other hand, 2-channel input signals (both analog and digital) are subject to Dolby Pro Logic processing and played
back.
Note:
Playback is not initiated for DTS input signals or 96 kHz PCM input signals.
STEREO
This mode bypasses all surround processing.
Stereo program sources the left and right channels play normaly when PCM-audio or analog stereo is input.
With Dolby Digital and DTS sources, the 5.1 multi-channels are converted to two channel stereo. 96 kHz source material can
be play back in stereo mode.
5ch STEREO
This mode is used to create a wider, deeper and more natural soundstage from two channel source material.
This is done by feeding the left channel signal to both left front and left surround speaker and the right channel signal to both
right front and right surround speaker. Addtionally, the center channel reproduces a mix of the right and left channel.
The 96 kHz sampling frequency mutes output.
SOURCE-DIRECT
In the source direct mode, the tone control circuite and bass management configuration are bypassed for full range
frequeancy responce and the purist audio reproduction.
96 Khz source matirial can be play back in this mode.
When analog signal input is selected, the digital unit's processing is stopped to minimize the effects of the high-frequency
clock, etc.
Notes:
Internal speaker size is setup to front L/R = Large, Center = Large, Surround L/R = Large and Subwoofer = yes automatically.
Tone controls are also defeated.
PURE-DIRECT
In contrast to the SOURCE DIRECT mode, the front panel display circuit is completely shut down, and then the video output
circuit is shut down to eliminate superfluous processing in operations other than the audio output. As a result, high-quality
music reproduction is achieved.
SRS
The playback mode is selected as follows depending on the input signals and speakers used.
n When the setting calls for the surround speakers to be used:
UltraSurround processing is added when multi-channel signals are input. This causes the sound to be reproduced in a wide
sound field with improved links between the channels.
Circle Surround playback is performed when 2-channel signals are input. In this case, either music mode or cinema mode
can be selected.
CS CINEMA: This is suited to movie playback. Conventional movies recorded in surround sound will also be played back as
5.1-channel sound.
CS MUSIC: This is suited to music playback. Two-channel music sources are converted into 5.1-channel sound for playback.
n When the setting does not call for the surround speakers to be used:
Using only the front speakers, virtual surround sound playback results to give the impression that surround speakers are
present.
Virtual surround sound playback using TruSurround is performed when multi-channel sound is input.
CS Virtual surround sound playback is performed when 2-channel signals are input. In this case, the Circle Surround effect
can be enjoyed by the front speakers alone.
Note:
The effect will differ depending on the playback source and viewing/listening position. The sound of some sources may be
played back unnaturally. Playback is not initiated for 96 kHz PCM input signals.
6.1 Surround
This can be used when back surround speakers are used.
Unique matrix processing is performed for the surround channels among the 5.1-channel signals to generate back surround
channels. This further enhances the sound of the source subjected to Surround EX or DTS-ES processing.

SURROUND MODES
ENGLISH
Caution for 96kHz PCM-audio signal:
This signal can be played when a DVD-player or DAT-player
connected to the PS-17 is capable of 96 kHz PCM output. For details,
refer to the player’s operation manual.
The signal can be played when STEREO or AUTO has been selected
for the Surround mode.
Some DVD formatted discs featured copy protect. When use such
disc, 96 kHz PCM signal is not output from the DVD player. For
details, refer to the player's operation manual.
Caution for DTS signal:
This signal can be played when the connected DVD-player, laserdisc player or CD-player is capable of DTS-digital output. For
details, refer to the player's operation manual.
Depending on the player used, DTS play may produce noise. If that
happens, set the Surround mode to DTS.
Playing a DTS-CD or DTS laser disc causes the player’s analog
output terminal to output noise. Before playing DTS sources, be
sure to connect the player’s digital output to the PS-17’s digital
input. Be careful when connecting the output of these players to
analog audio input.
Note that the PS-17 has the following restrictive functions built in to
reduce noise emission as much as possible.
If DTS is selected while in the Surround mode, digital input cannot
be switched to analog input. When the analog input function has
been selected, Surround mode cannot be switched to DTS.
While signals from DTS-laser disc or CD are playing in another
Surround mode, you cannot switch to digital input or from digital
input to analog input.

LISTENING THROUGH HEADPHONES
The following surround sound effects can be selected while the Dolby
Headphone function is operating:
AUTO, DOLBY SURR., SRS, STEREO
This unit features a "Dolby Headphone" function.
The Dolby Headphone is ideal for users who do not have the space to
install five speakers in their room and for users who want to enjoy
movies or music at high volume levels late at night but cannot do so.
They were developed to enable users to experience the 3dimensional acoustics of multi-channel or stereo channel sound while
wearing headphones.
OPERATION
1.

3.
EFFECTS OF DOLBY HEADPHONE
Usually when stereo sound is heard through headphones, the sound
is not localized somewhere in front of the listener's eyes as it does
with speakers: instead, all the sound is localized inside the listener's
head which feels unnatural to the listener.
When sound is heard using the Dolby Headphone function, however,
it is heard as if it is being reproduced from the speakers installed in
the room.
4.
Normally, the sound delivered by the left speaker is heard in both the
listener's left and right ears, and the differences in level, time and
characteristics of the sound cause the listener to perceive a
directionality. Furthermore, in addition to the direct sound, the
indirect sound produced by reflection in the room also reaches the
listener's ears.
5.
6.
Listening to sound with headphones means that the listener hears the
left sound directly through his or her left ear only so that no sound
image is heard in front.
The Dolby Headphone provides virtual room simulation and the
resulting acoustic characteristics are overlaid onto, and incorporated
into, the left and right headphone signals. For instance, what
happens to the left-channel sound mentioned above is that its
reverberation components and components of the sound reflected
from the room are combined with the left and right speaker (channel)
sound and output to the left and right headphones. Since the listener
hears in both ears components with the same quality as when
listening to sound through speakers, he or she feels as if the sound
source were located in front.
Notes:
The Dolby Headphone function will not work when 96 kHz PCM digital
signals are input.
In this case, first supply the analog output signals of the DVD player
to the unit, and then activate the Dolby Headphone function.
The Dolby Headphone function will not work for 6-channel input
signals.
The Dolby Headphone function will not work when SOURCE DIRECT
has been selected while the headphones are being used.
Although this function does not require the use of a special pair of
headphones, its effect will differ somewhat depending on the type of
headphones used.
This kind of processing necessitates a vast number of complex
operations but it has been achieved by improving the performance of
the DSP. Whereas stereotypical systems available to date had to
optimize the characteristics for each individual listener, the most
salient feature of the Dolby Headphone is that they remain essentially
unaffected by the listener or type of headphones (even if some small
variations exist due to differences in sensitivity and characteristics
balance).
The room simulation pattern that provides this effect can be selected
from the following three types.
DH1 : The size of a typical living room space is simulated.
DH2 : The expansiveness of a structure as large as a music hall is
simulated.
DH3 : A large space such as that found in a movie theater is
simulated.

When you have finished programming the remote controller, use
a ballpoint pen or other sharp point to once again press the
MODE button z to return it to the USE mode. The LCD displays
the USE indicator, and the newly programmed codes now can be
used.
If FULL is displayed on the LCD
If FULL is displayed on the LCD b when programming in the LEARN
mode, it means that the memory has become too full to hold any
further codes.
If FULL is displayed no matter how many times you attempt to enter
new codes, it means that the remote controller cannot accept any
new codes until some of the previously learned codes are deleted to
make space in the memory. Select unneeded codes for each of the
Jog Dial control nand Functionbuttons ,
, which show FULL and
delete them from the memory.

Use a ballpoint pen or other sharp point to press the MODE
button z to switch the remote controller to the LEARN mode, so
that the LEARN indicator is blinking on the LCD.
Note:
Erasing of programmed codes is only possible in the LEARN
mode.
2. Erasing by Button(s)
To erase the codes and names programmed for any button,
press and hold the CLEAR button ⁄5, then press the button to be
erased twice. This will return the button to its factory presets or
leave it empty if no factory presets are available.
Jog Dial codes may be erased in the same way, by pressing and
holding the CLEAR button ⁄5 while using the Jog Dial n to call
up the command to be erased, then pressing one of the ENT
buttons m on either side of the Jog Dial n twice. This will return
the button to its factory presets or leave it empty if no factory
presets are available.
To erase codes programmed for the CLEAR button ⁄5, simply
press the CLEAR button ⁄5 continuously for 3 seconds.
As an example, let’s clear the PLAY command from the laser disc
player command set.
Press, press again, press again, etc.

Macros make it possible to use a single function button to perform
more complex series of operations that would normally require
pressing several buttons. A single button can be programmed to
perform up to 10 steps in sequence. A typical example of such a
series might be as follows:
• Turn the main amplifier power ON fi Switch the function to LD fi
Set the Surround Mode to Pro Logic fi Switch the TV to video input
fi Set the laser disc player to PLAY.
• No signals may be transmitted during macro programming.
• The various steps that make up a macro are set initially to be sent
one after another in 1 second intervals, however these intervals
may be shortened to as little as 0.5 seconds or lengthened to as
much as 5 seconds using the Setup mode.
• In the macro mode, the number of steps the macro contains is
displayed on LCD c. Macros may be programmed for each of the
11 function buttons, from LD to AMP.

In the macro mode it is possible to program the memory to
perform macros containing up to 10 steps.
Each of the function operations (11 including CD, DVD, etc.)
can be used in a macro more than once, however for all
except AMP, only the first function operation will be
transmitted as a signal from the remote controller.
Accordingly, within a single macro, it is not possible to switch
between multiple function operations. (This is to prevent the
switching of the receiver function operation.) Within a macro,
the second time a function operation is used, it will only be
used on the remote controller itself and no signal will be
transmitted to the component.

BATTERY LIFE
LUMINOUS BUTTONS
• New batteries will last about 6 months assuming an average of 30
uses per day.
The buttons on this remote controller are designed to remain
luminous in dim lighting conditions. If the buttons are no longer
luminous when the remote controller is used in low light, recharge
them by placing it near a fluorescent or other light source for a
sufficient amount of time. This should return the buttons to their
luminous condition.
Note:
The batteries shipped with the remote controller are for the
purpose of checking function and may not last as long as new
batteries.
SETUP
Switch the RC-5 destination or adjust the time interval between
transmissions of macro operations as follows:
1. While pressing the MEMO button ⁄6 , press the OK Cursor button

The remote controller (RC-17PS) uses 128-Kbyte large-capacity nonvolatile memory (EEPROM) and is therefore capable of learning a
maximum of 330 remote control codes. This applies only to Philips

depending on the type of other codes that are programmed, the
remote controller can learn less than 330 codes.

Each of the 10 Jog Dial commands on the LCD has 5 character labels
attached for pre-programmed remote commands. These commands
can be used with various Marantz A/V components, or other
components using the Philips RC-5 remote control language.
You can easily replace the factory-supplied remote command codes
with different codes from other brands of component. Most of the
supplied functions apply to a wide variety of component from many
companies. The following list shows the remote code assignments for
the Jog Dial commands, for each of the 11 Function buttons, as
supplied from the factory. You can add or replace Jog Dial commands,
including re-naming them if you wish, in order to customize the remote
controller for your own particular selection of A/V components.

HOW TO RESET THE UNIT
Should the operation or display seem to be abnormal, reset the unit
with the following procedure.
The PS-17 is turned on, press and hold the
A/D e and SRS u
buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds or more.
Remember that the procedure will reset the settings of the function
selector, Surround mode, delay time, etc., to their initial settings.
If the equipment malfunctions, this may be because an electrostatic
discharge or AC line interference has corrupted the information in
the equipment memory circuits. Therefore:
- disconnect the plug from the AC line supply
- after waiting at least three minutes, reconnect the plug to the AC
line supply
- re-attempt to operate the equipment
ERROR MESSAGES
When the display indicates some error messages (e.g. ERROR **),
unplug the power cable immediately. Contact your dealer, nearest
Marantz distributor or the Marantz service center in your area.
Last memory
This unit contains a non-volatile memory called as an
"EEPROM" to ensure that the following data will be retained in
the memory even when the unit's power is turned off.
