5 minute guide
Introduction to home theater
You are probably used to using stereo equipment to listen to music, but may not be used to
home theater systems that give you many more options (such as surround sound) when
listening to soundtracks.
Home theater refers to the use of multiple audio tracks to create a surround sound effect,
making you feel like you're in the middle of the action or concert. The surround sound you get
from a home theater system depends not only on the speakers you have set up in your room, but
also on the source and the sound settings of the receiver.
DVD-Video has become the basic source material for home theater due to its size, quality, and
ease of use. Depending on the DVD, you can have up to seven different audio tracks coming
from one disc, all of them being sent to different speakers in your system. This is what creates
a surround sound effect and gives you the feeling of ‘being there’.
This receiver will automatically decode Dolby Digital, DTS, or Dolby Surround DVD-Video discs,
according to your speaker setup. In most cases, you won’t have to make changes for realistic
surround sound, but other possibilities (like listening to a CD with multi-channel surround
sound) are explained in Playing sources on page 35.

5 minute guide
Listening to Surround Sound
This receiver was designed with the easiest possible setup in mind, so with the following quick
setup guide, you should have your system hooked up for surround sound in no time at all. In
most cases, you can simply leave the receiver in the default settings.
Be sure to complete all connections before connecting this unit to the AC power source.
1 Hook up your DVD player.
For surround sound, you’ll want to hook up using a digital connection from the DVD player to
the receiver. You can do this with either a coaxial, or an optical connection (you don’t need to
connect both). If you hook up using an optical cable, you should refer to Digital input settings
on page 49 to assign the optical input to DVD.
Use a video cord to connect the video output on your DVD player to the receiver using the jacks
shown below.
2 Hook up your TV.

3 Connect your speakers.
A complete setup of eight speakers (including the subwoofer) is shown here but everyone’s
home setup will vary. Simply connect the speakers you have in the manner shown below. The
receiver will work with just two stereo speakers (the front speakers in the diagram) but using at
least three speakers is recommended, and a complete setup is best.
Make sure you connect the speaker on the right to the right terminal and the speaker on the left
to the left terminal. Also make sure the positive and negative ( +/–) terminals on the receiver
match those on the speakers.
• Use speakers with a nominal impedance of 8 Ω to 16 Ω.
• If you’re not using a subwoofer, change the front speaker setting (see Speaker setting on
page 45) to large.

Automatically calibrating
your listening area (MCACC)
The Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration
(MCACC) system measures the acoustic
characteristics of your listening area, taking
into account ambient noise, speaker size and
distance, and tests for both channel delay and
channel level. After you have set up the
microphone provided with your system, the
receiver uses the information from a series of
test tones to optimize the speaker settings
and equalization for your particular room.
• These test tones can be loud, so take care
that there is no one in the room who will
be startled by the noise.
• Make sure the mic and speakers are not
moved during the MCACC setup.
1 Connect the microphone to the SETUP
MIC jack on the front panel.
2 Place the microphone at your normal
listening position.
Place the mic about ear level at your normal
listening position using the supplied microphone stand on a table or chair.
Make sure there are no obstacles between the
speakers and the microphone.
3 If the receiver is off, press
STANDBY/ON to turn the power on.
The STANDBY indicator goes out.

display for five seconds. To exit and check
your subwoofer output level, press MCACC
SETUP (see the notes regarding noise levels
below) or simply press ENTER when you’re
prompted to GO NEXT?
• If the room environment is not optimal for
the auto surround setup (too much
ambient noise, echo off the walls, obstacles blocking the speakers from the
microphone) the final settings may be
incorrect. Check for household appliances (air conditioner, fridge, fan, etc.),
that may be affecting the environment
and switch them off if necessary.
• Some older TVs may interfere with the
operation of the mic. If this seems to be
happening, switch off the TV when doing
the auto surround setup.
• Using the MCACC system to set up your
speaker system overwrites any previous
settings you had for the STANDARD or
ADVANCED SURROUND modes.
• When the STANDARD or ADVANCED
SURROUND mode is selected, you can
check the settings made with MCACC by
using CH SELECT (to check channel
levels) or by going through the steps in
Choosing your receiver setup on page 44
to check other settings.
• Depending on the the characteristics of
your room, sometimes identical speakers
with cone sizes of around 5 inches
(12cm) will end up with different size
settings. You can correct the setting
manually using the receiver setup on
page 44.

Use audio/video cords (not supplied) to
connect the audio/video components and a
video cord to connect the monitor TV.
Use component video cords to get the best
possible color reproduction of your video
source. The color signal of the TV is divided
into the luminance (Y) signal and the color
(PB and PR) signals and then output. In this
way, interference between the signals is
avoided. Connect from the component video

Connecting digital components
The easiest way to hook up this receiver for surround sound is to use a digital input. You can do
this by either coaxial or optical connections (you do not need to do both). The quality of these
two types of connections is the same but since some digital components only have one type of
digital terminal, it is a matter of matching like with like (for example, the coaxial output from the
component to coaxial input on the receiver). The VSX-D912 has four digital inputs (two coaxial
inputs and two optical inputs) on the rear panel. Connect your digital components as shown
below.
There is one digital output jack which is marked DIGITAL OUT. If you connect this to the optical
input on a digital recorder (currently these include MD, DAT and CD-R) you can make direct
digital recordings with this unit.
When connecting your equipment, always make sure the power is turned off and the power cord
is disconnected from the AC outlet.

• If you have an LD player, you need to make special connections to ensure you can play 2
RF format LDs on your system. If this is the case, hook up your DVD or LD player directly to
an RF demodulator using both the 2 RF output and either a coaxial or optical digital
connection. We also recommend hooking up your digital components to analog audio jacks
as well. Make sure the RF demodulator digital in switch is set correctly (optical or coaxial
depending on the connection). See the component's instruction manual if you are unsure
about its input and output jacks.

Connecting up
Connecting audio components
To begin set up, connect your analog audio components (such as a cassette deck) to the jacks.
For components you want to record with, you need to hook up four plugs to the receiver (a set
of stereo inputs and a set of stereo outputs), but for components that only play, you only need
to hook up one set of stereo plugs. You must also hook up your digital components to analog
audio jacks if you want to record to/from digital components (like an MD) to/from analog components. See page 17 for more on digital connections.
When connecting your equipment, always make sure the power is turned off and the power cord
is disconnected from the AC outlet.

Connecting video components
Connect your video components to the jacks as shown below. With digital video components
(like a DVD player), you must use the connections shown on this page for the video signal, but
in order to hear a digital source (like a DVD) you should hook up the audio to a digital input (see
page 17). It is also a good idea to hook up your digital components with analog audio connections (see page 18).
For better quality video, you can hook up using the component video jacks or the S-video jacks
(quality descends in this order) on the rear of the receiver instead of the regular video jacks.
Make sure they are connected to the video component using the same kind of connection.
When connecting your equipment, always make sure the power is turned off and the power cord
is disconnected from the AC outlet.

Connecting the speakers
A complete setup of eight speakers (including the subwoofer) is shown below, but everyone’s
home setup will vary. Simply connect the speakers you have in the manner shown below. The
receiver will work with just two stereo speakers (the front speakers in the diagram) but using at
least three speakers is recommended, and a complete setup is best for surround sound. If
you’re not using a subwoofer, change the front speaker setting (see Speaker setting on page 45)
to large.
Make sure you connect the speaker on the right to the right terminal and the speaker on the left
to the left terminal. Also make sure the positive and negative (+/–) terminals on the receiver
match those on the speakers.
Be sure to complete all connections before connecting this unit to the AC power source.
• Use speakers with a nominal impedance of 8 Ω to 16 Ω.

Connecting up
• When using the speaker on your TV as the
center speaker (C), connect the CENTER
PREOUT jack on this unit to the audio
input jack on your TV. In this case the
center speaker shown is unnecessary.
• The speaker terminals also accept single
banana plugs. (Refer to speaker manual
for details.)
• If you are using only one surround back
speaker, connect the positive wire to the
right channel (+) terminal, and the negative wire to the left channel (–) terminal
(see illustration on page 11).
• If you select subwoofer (SB SW) in the
Surround back speaker setting on page 46
you can hook up a subwoofer instead of
speakers to the surround back speaker
terminals. Connect the positive wire to the
right channel (+) terminal, and the negative wire to the left channel (–) terminal
(see illustration on page 11).

wire is touching the back panel when you
switch the unit on, the power may cut off as a
safety measure. Use good quality speaker
wire to connect the speakers to the receiver.

A and B speaker systems
The receiver has two speaker systems: A and
B. A is the main system supporting the full
speaker setup. If you switch on both A and B
speaker systems, only the front speakers and
the (active) subwoofer will be audible. No
sound will come from the center, surround, or
surround back speakers, but multi-channel
sources will be down-mixed to the active
speakers so no sound will be lost. Similarly, if
you choose just the B system you‘ll only hear
the front speakers connected to the B system
and multi channel sources will be downmixed to these two speakers.
• Press the SPEAKERS button on the
front panel to switch between speaker
systems (A, B or both).
Hints on speaker placement
Speakers are usually designed with a particular placement in mind. Some are designed
to be floorstanding, while others should be
placed on stands to sound their best. Some
should be placed near a wall; others should
be placed away from walls. We have provided
a few tips on getting the best sound from your
speakers (following), but you should also
follow the guidelines on placement that the
speaker manufacturer provided with your
particular speakers to get the most out of
them.
23
En
04
Connecting up
• Place the front left and right speakers at
equal distances from the TV.
• When placing speakers near the TV, we
recommend using magnetically shielded
speakers to prevent possible interference,
such as discoloration of the picture when
the TV is switched on. If you do not have
magnetically shielded speakers and
notice discoloration of the TV picture,
move the speakers farther away from the
TV.
• Place the center speaker above or below
the TV so that the sound of the center
channel is localized at the TV screen.
• If possible, place the surround speakers
slightly above ear level.
• Try not to place the surround speakers
further away from the listening position
than the front and center speakers. Doing
so can weaken the surround sound effect.

• To achieve the best possible surround
sound, install your speakers as shown
below. Be sure all speakers are installed
securely to prevent accidents and
improve sound quality.
• If you choose to install the center speaker
on top of the TV, be sure to secure it with
putty, or by other suitable means, to
reduce the risk of damage or injury
resulting from the speaker falling from the
TV in the event of external shocks such as
earthquakes.

Connecting up
AC outlet
Power cord caution
Power supplied through this outlet is turned
on and off by the receiver's power switch.
Total electrical power consumption of
connected equipment should not exceed 100
W (0.8 A).
Handle the power cord by the plug. Do not
pull out the plug by tugging the cord and
never touch the power cord when your hands
are wet as this could cause a short circuit or
an electric shock. Do not place the unit, a
piece of furniture, etc., on the power cord, or
pinch the cord. Never make a knot in the cord
or tie it with other cords. The power cords
should be routed such that they are not likely
to be stepped on. A damaged power cord can
cause a fire or give you an electrical shock.
Check the power cord once in a while. When
you find it damaged, ask your nearest Pioneer
authorized service center or your dealer for a
replacement.

Introduction to Sound Modes
You can identify Dolby Digital software by the

SURROUND).
1 or
marks. Most Dolby
Surround software is marked 3, but
unmarked software may also incorporate
Dolby Surround. Depending on the source
and the sound mode you have selected, you
may not get sound from the surround back
speakers in your setup. For more on this, refer
to Using the Surround Back Channel (SB CH)
on page 40.
Stereo/Direct
When you select STEREO or DIRECT, you will
hear the source through just the front left and
right speakers (and possibly your subwoofer
depending on your speaker settings). Dolby
Digital and DTS multichannel sources are
downmixed to stereo.
In STEREO, you’ll hear the audio with your
surround settings and you can still use the
Midnight, Loudness, and Tone control functions.
With DIRECT, you will bypass all effects and
surround settings so that the audio remains
as close to the source audio signal as
possible.
• If you switch on Midnight listening, Loudness, or the Tone controls when DIRECT is
selected, the receiver automatically
switches to STEREO.
Choose one of the following to add depth to a
2 channel source:
Pro Logic II Movie (MOVIE)
This mode gives 5.1 channel surround sound.
It is suitable for movies, especially those
recorded in Dolby Surround. The channel
separation and movement of surround effects
is comparable to Dolby Digital 5.1.
Pro Logic II Music (MUSIC)
This mode gives 5.1 channel surround sound
and is suitable for music. The surround effect
is more enveloping than Pro Logic II Movie.
Pro Logic (PROLOGIC)
This mode gives 4.1 channel surround sound.
It is less sensitive to the quality of the source
material, so may be useful when Pro Logic II
Movie/ Music modes don’t give good results.
Standard mode
The Standard mode can be used to decode
Dolby Digital, DTS, and Dolby Surround
sources.
The other surround sound options (next
column) can add multi-channel sound to
regular stereo sources.
Neo:6 Cinema (CINEMA)
This mode gives 6.1 channel surround sound
and is suitable for movies. The Neo:6 Cinema
mode delivers good channel separation for
movie soundtracks.
35

Playing sources
Neo:6 Music (MUSIC)
Sports (SPORTS)
This mode gives 6.1 channel surround sound
and is suitable for music. The Neo:6 Music
mode plays the stereo source as is through
the front left/right speakers, and generates a
natural, ambient surround and center sound.
This is designed for sports programs with alot
of action, adding to the excitement by
bringing background action to the forefront.
Advanced Surround modes
These are designed to be used with multichannel surround sound audio/visual
sources (like DVDs and LDs). Most Advanced
Surround modes are designed to be used with
film soundtracks, but some modes are also
suited for music sources. Try different
settings with various soundtracks to see
which you like.
• Depending on the source and the sound
mode you have selected, you may not get
sound from the surround back speakers
in your setup. For more on this, refer to
Using the Surround Back Channel (SB CH)
on page 40.
Game (GAME)
Useful when playing video games. It works
especially well with sound moving from left to
right in game software with alot of movement.
Expanded (EXPANDED)
This mode is especially designed to give
sound depth to stereo sources, and lets you
hear two-channel (stereo) signals as simulated multi-channel surround sound. Use with
Dolby Pro Logic for a stereo surround effect.
You can also use with Dolby Digital sources
for a wider stereo field than the Standard
modes.
6-Channel Stereo (6-STEREO)
This can be selected to give multi-channel
sound to a stereo source, using all of the
speakers in your setup.
Phones Surround (PHONES SURROUND)
Advanced Movie (ADV. MOVIE)
Simulates the relaxed environment of a movie
theater, and is suitable for watching movies.
Advanced Music (ADV. MUSIC)
Simulates the acoustic environment of a large
concert hall and is suitable for music or
musical sources.
TV Surround (TV. SURR.)
This mode produces surround sound for both
mono and stereo TV sources. It is useful for
older movies recorded with mono
soundtracks.

Choosing the input signal
• Default setting: AUTO
You need to hook up a component to both
analog and digital inputs on the rear of the
receiver to select between input signals.
• This receiver can only play back Dolby
Digital, PCM (32kHz–96 kHz) and DTS
digital signal formats (including DTS
96kHz/24 bit). With other digital signal
formats, set to ANALOG.
• You may get digital noise when a LD or CD
player compatible with DTS is playing an
analog signal. To prevent noise, make the
proper digital connections (page 17) and
set the signal input to DIGITAL.
• Some DVD players don’t output DTS
signals. For more details, refer to the
instruction manual supplied with your
DVD player.

Surround back speaker setting
• Default setting: S
You must let the receiver know if surround
back speaker(s) have been connected, and
how big they are. The size you choose (large or
small) determines how much bass is sent
from the receiver to the speakers. If you have
connected a surround back subwoofer, you
should select the surround back subwoofer
setting (SB SW) from the options. Choose
(asterisk) if no speaker is connected.

SB SW
We recommend setting this to 200 Hz if your
S speakers are smaller bookshelf-type
speakers.
• To select SB L, you must have SL selected
in the Speaker setting.
46
• When you select the PLUS setting, you
will get the bass sounds from the
subwoofer even if the front speakers are
set to L.
Crossover frequency is the point where the
receiver divides the high and low sounds (the
frequencies) between the speakers. Since
most smaller speakers can’t handle deep
bass tones, you can send these sounds to the
subwoofer (or if you don’t have a subwoofer,
the large (L) speakers in your system) instead
of the speakers set to small (S) in your setup.
Choose the point at which you want the
frequency routed to the subwoofer (or L
speakers).
• Use or to select SB S, SB , SB SW
or SB L.

LFE attenuator setting
• Default setting: 0 dB
Dolby Digital and DTS audio sources include
ultra-low bass tones. Set the LFE attenuator
as necessary to prevent the ultra-low bass
tones from distorting the sound from the
speakers.
• Use or to set the attenuation
level (0 dB, 10 dB or

Center speaker distance setting
• Default setting: 10 ft.
The center speaker is normally placed directly
in the front of the listening room and closer to
the listening position than the front speakers.
This means that the sound from the center
speaker will be heard before the front
speakers. To prevent this, set the center
speaker distance setting to delay the sound
from the center speaker so that the sound
from the front and center speakers will be
heard at the same time.
• Use or to set the distance of the

You can also use the Multi-Channel Acoustic
Calibration (MCACC) system to manually fine
tune your speaker levels and channel delay.
These are calibrated according to the
distance from your left front speaker to the
listening position. You will hear a series of test
tones that will allow you to set the speaker
levels and channel delay to your liking. The
advantage of doing this is that you can
achieve an overall balance defined by the
front speakers (the main speakers for home
theater).

Making recordings
Making an audio or a video
recording
You can make an audio or a video recording
from the built-in tuner, or from an audio or
video source connected to the receiver (such
as a CD player or TV).
Keep in mind you can’t make a digital
recording from an analog source or viceversa, so make sure the components you are
recording to/from are hooked up in the same
way (see Connecting up on page 16 for more
on connections).
If you want to record a video source, you also
need use the same type of connection for the
source as for the recorder. For example, you
can’t record a component hooked up to Svideo jacks with a recorder hooked up to the
component video outputs (see page 20 for
more on video connections).
1 Select the source you want to record.
Use the MULTI CONTROL buttons (or INPUT
SEL).
2 Select the input signal (if necessary).
Press SIGNAL SEL (SIGNAL SELECT) to select
the input signal corresponding to the source
component (see page 37 for more on this).
3 Prepare the source you want to record.
Tune to the radio station, load the CD, video,
DVD etc.
4 Prepare the recorder.
Insert a blank tape, MD, video etc. into the
recording device and set the recording levels.
Refer to the instructions that came with the
recorder if you are unsure how to do this.
Most video recorders set the audio recording
level automatically—check the component’s
instruction manual if you’re unsure.

Preset Code List
You should have no problem controlling a component if you find the manufacturer in this list,
but you can only set these codes for the button that is assigned to that component. So, for
example, the TV codes can only be set to the TV or TVC button. Please note that there are cases
where only certain functions may be controllable after assigning the proper preset code, or the
codes for the manufacturer in the list will not work for the model that you are using.
