HDMI
High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is the first and only digital interface to combine uncompressed highdefinition video, multi-channel audio and intelligent format and command data in a single digital interface. HDMI
switching, providing the most advanced method of delivering high quality video signals to a home theater system to
enable the reproduction of DVD and satellite TV sources with HD quality. HDMI can also send the digital audio signals
from sources such as DVD Audio, CD, Dolby Digital and DTS to provide simple components connections.
Dolby Pro Logic II
Improved version of Dolby Pro-Logic for music and movies. With a more intelligent matrix decoder, it is suitable for both
stereo and surround-encoded sources. It offers “bass management” as well as the option of incorporating “width,”
“dimension” and “panorama” controls.
DTS Digital Surround (New)
The basic DTS 5.1 channel sound format. Uses a higher data rate than Dolby Digital.
SRS TruBass
TruBass: uses harmonics to make the bass from small speakers deeper and richer for a more dynamic bass sound.
IntelliBeam
Each sound beam is precisely directed. Total sound beam effect is optimized. Frequency response and other parameters
are optimized for the room.
CINEMA DSP Digital
Conventional multichannel audio reproduction systems base their sound on Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, using
matrix and steering technologies to create surround sound effects. Yamaha CINEMA DSP is much more advanced,

Wide Variety of Beam Settings
IntelliBeam™ Automated Calibration System
The My Surround mode provides surround sound without
reflecting the beams off the walls. It is handy for rooms
where for some reason the walls can not be used well and
delivers a good surround effect when listeners are close to
the unit. My Surround uses a combination of DiMagic and
Yamaha technology. The My Beam setting focuses the
sound at a specific listening position, so even in noisy
surroundings you can hear dialogue and other sounds
clearly. There are also five other selectable beam settings:
5 Beam, 3 Beam, 3 Beam + Stereo, and 2ch Stereo and
5ch Stereo that outputs stereo sources from all of the 5channel beams, providing a more expansive sound field.
This Yamaha exclusive feature ensures optimum multichannel sound reproduction with accurate image location.
By monitoring and analyzing the sound with the
microphone included with the YSP-3050, IntelliBeam
automatically sets the best beam angles, while optimizing
the level and frequency response of each beam. It also
offers Direct Start function via remote unit. This makes
initial setup both extremely simple while acoustically
perfect.
