PREPARATION
SPEAKER SETUP
Speaker placement
The main speakers are used for the main source sound
plus effect sounds. They will probably be the speakers
from your present stereo system. The rear speakers are
used for effect and surround sounds. The center speaker is
for the center sounds (dialog, vocals, etc.).
Rear speaker (R)
Subwoofer
Main
speaker (L)
1.8 m (6 feet)
Rear speaker (L)
■ Main speakers
Place the main left and right speakers an equal distance
from the ideal listening position. The distance between
each speaker and each side of the video monitor should
also be the same.
■ Center speaker
Align the front face of the center speaker with the front
face of your video monitor. Place the speaker as close to
the monitor as possible (such as directly over or under the
monitor) and centrally between the main speakers.
■ Rear speakers
Place these speakers behind your listening position,
facing slightly inwards, nearly 1.8 m (6 feet) above the
floor.
■ Subwoofer
The position of the subwoofer is not so critical, because
low bass sounds are not highly directional. But it is better
to place the subwoofer near the main speakers. Turn it
slightly toward the center of the room to reduce wall
reflections.
ADDITIONAL
INFORMATION
It is also possible to further expand your system with the
addition of a subwoofer. The use of a subwoofer is
effective not only for reinforcing bass frequencies from
any or all channels, but also for reproducing the LFE
(low-frequency effect) channel with high fidelity when
playing back Dolby Digital or DTS signals. The
YAMAHA Active Servo Processing Subwoofer System is
ideal for natural and lively bass reproduction.
Main speaker (R)
ADVANCED
OPERATION
■ Use of a subwoofer expands your
sound field
Center speaker
BASIC OPERATION
The main speakers should be high-performance models
and have enough power-handling capacity to accept the
maximum output of your audio system. The other
speakers do not have to be equal to the main speakers. For
precise sound localization, however, it is ideal to use the
models of equivalent performance with the main
speakers.
Refer to the following diagram when you place the
speakers.
PREPARATION
This unit has been designed to provide the best soundfield quality with a 5-speaker system, using main left and
right speakers, rear left and right speakers and a center
speaker. If you use different brands of speakers (with
different tonal qualities) in your system, the tone of a
moving human voice and other types of sound may not
shift smoothly. We recommend that you use speakers
from the same manufacturer or speakers with the same
tonal quality.
INTRODUCTION
Speakers
Note
CAUTION
APPENDIX
• If you do not use any of effect speakers (rear and/or center),
change the settings of SPEAKER SET items at the SET MENU
to designate the signals to other terminals you connect speakers
to.
Use magnetically shielded speakers. If this type of
speakers still creates the interference with the monitor,
place the speakers away from the monitor.

SPEAKER SETUP
Connecting the speakers
Be sure to connect the left channel (L), right channel (R), “+” (red) and “–” (black) properly. If the connections are
faulty, no sound will be heard from the speakers, and if the polarity of the speaker connections is incorrect, the sound
will be unnatural and lack bass.
CAUTION
• Use speakers with the specified impedance shown on the rear panel of this unit.
• Do not let the bare speaker wires touch each other or any metal part of this unit. This could damage this unit and/
or the speakers.
If necessary, use the SET MENU to change the speaker mode settings according to the number and size of the speakers
in your configuration after you finish connecting your speakers.
■ Speaker cables
A speaker cord is actually a pair of insulated cables
running side by side. One cable is colored or shaped
differently, perhaps with a stripe, groove or ridge.

Notes
• If “1A CENTER” on the SET MENU is set to NON and the
center speaker is not connected, the center channel sound is
automatically output from the main left and right speakers.
• If “1C REAR LR” on the SET MENU is set to NON, the
output level of the rear left and right speakers cannot be
adjusted in step 3. The test tone will be circulated skipping the
rear right and left speakers.
• If “1D BASS” on the SET MENU is set to MAIN, the test tone
will be circulated skipping the subwoofer.
y
• It is not necessary to readjust the speaker levels once they are
set (as long as you do not change the speakers). You can enjoy
listening to or watching the input source at the desired volume
simply by adjusting the VOLUME knob (or VOLUME h/g on
the remote control).
• If the output level of the effect speakers (center, rear left, and
rear right) cannot be increased enough to match the level of the
main speakers, set “1E MAIN Lv” on SET MENU to –10 dB
(see page 42). This setting decreases the main speaker output
level to about one-third of the normal level. After you have set
“1E MAIN Lv” on the SET MENU to –10 dB, adjust the levels
for the center and rear speakers again.

• When AUTO is selected, this unit automatically determines the
type of signal. If this unit detects a Dolby Digital or DTS
signal, the decoder automatically switches to the appropriate
setting.
• When playing a disc encoded with Dolby Digital or DTS on
some LD or DVD players, the sound output delays for a
moment when playback resumes after a search because the
digital signal is selected again.
• When playing a LD source that has not been digitally recorded,
the sound may not be output for some LD players. In this case,
set the input mode to ANALOG.
ADVANCED
OPERATION
In this mode, the input signal is selected
automatically as follows:
1) Digital signal
2) Analog signal
DTS:
In this mode, only the digital input signal
encoded with DTS is selected, even if
another signal is input at the same time.
ANALOG: In this mode, only the analog input signal is
selected, even if a digital signal is input at
the same time.
• If the digital output data of the player has been
processed in any way, you may not be able to perform
DTS decoding even if you make a digital connection
between this unit and the player.
• If you play a source encoded with a DTS signal and
set the input mode to ANALOG, this unit may
reproduce the noise of an unprocessed DTS signal. In
this case, connect the source to a digital input jack and
set the input mode to AUTO or DTS.
• If you switch the input mode to ANALOG while

DIGITAL SOUND FIELD PROCESSING (DSP)
PREPARATION
A sound field is defined as the “characteristic sound reflections of a
particular space.” In concert halls and other music venues, we hear
early reflections and reverberations as well as the direct sound
produced by the artist(s). The variations in the early reflections and
other reverberations among the different music venues is what gives
each venue its special and recognizable sound quality.
YAMAHA sent teams of sound engineers all around the world to
measure the sound reflections of famous concert halls and music
venues, and collect detailed sound field information such as the
direction, strength, range, and delay time of those reflections. Then
we stored this enormous amount of data in the ROM chips of this
unit.
INTRODUCTION
Understanding sound fields
■ Recreating a sound field
BASIC
OPERATION
Recreating the sound field of a concert hall or an opera house requires localizing the virtual sound sources in your
listening room. The traditional stereo system that uses only two speakers is not capable of recreating a realistic sound
field. YAMAHA’s DSP requires three effect speakers to recreate sound fields based on the measured sound field data.
The processor controls the strength and delay time of the signals output from the three effect speakers to localize the
virtual sound sources and fully encompass the listener.
Hi-Fi DSP programs
No.
Program
ADVANCED
OPERATION
The following list gives you a brief description of the sound fields produced by each of the DSP programs. Keep in
mind that most of these are precise digital recreations of actual acoustic environments.
Features
A large round concert hall with a rich surround effect. Pronounced reflections from all directions
emphasize the extension of sounds. The sound field has a great deal of presence, and your virtual
seat is near the center, close to the stage.
2
JAZZ CLUB
This is the sound field at stage front in “The Bottom Line”, a famous New York jazz club, that
seats up to 300 people. Its wide left to right seating arrangement offers a real and vibrant sound.
3
ROCK CONCERT
The ideal program for lively, dynamic rock music. The data for this program was recorded at
LA’s “hottest” rock club. The listener’s virtual seat is at the center-left of the hall.
4
ENTERTAINMENT/
Disco
This program recreates the acoustic environment of a lively disco in the heart of a big city. The
sound is dense and highly concentrated. It is also characterized by a high-energy, “immediate”
sound.
ENTERTAINMENT/

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

OPERATION
Most movie software has 4-channel (left, center, right,
and surround) sound information encoded by Dolby
Surround matrix processing and stored on the left and
right tracks. These signals are processed by the Dolby Pro
Logic decoder. The MOVIE THEATER programs are
designed to recreate the spaciousness and delicate
nuances of sound that tend to be lost in the encoding and
decoding processes.
Presence DSP

BASIC
OPERATION
These programs provide you with the maximum experience of the spacious surround effects by adding an extra rear
center DSP sound field created from the virtual rear center speaker.
PREPARATION
These programs use YAMAHA’s tri-field DSP processing
on each of the Dolby Digital or DTS signals for the front,
left surround, and right surround channels. This
processing enables this unit to reproduce the immense
sound field and surround expression of a Dolby Digitalor DTS-equipped movie theater without sacrificing the
clear separation of all channels.

INTRODUCTION
The 6-channel soundtracks found on 70-mm film produce precise sound field localization and rich, deep sound without
using matrix processing. This unit’s MOVIE THEATER programs provide the same quality of sound and sound
localization that 6-channel soundtracks do. The built-in Dolby Digital or DTS decoder brings the professional-quality
sound designed for movie theaters into your home. With this unit’s MOVIE THEATER programs, you can use Dolby
Digital or DTS technology to recreate a dynamic sound that gives you the feeling of being in a public theater.
Dolby Pro Logic decodes Dolby Surround software into 5 discrete full-range channels (3 channels in front and 2
channels in rear). There are 2 modes; MOVIE for movies and MUSIC for 2-channel audio sources.

CINEMA-DSP
The following list gives you a brief description of the sound fields produced by each of the DSP programs. Keep in
mind that most of these are precise digital recreations of actual acoustic environments. Select the DSP program that you
feel sounds best regardless of the name and description given for it below.
7
This program creates the extremely wide sound field of a 70-mm movie theater. It
precisely reproduces the source sound in detail, making both the video and the sound
field incredibly real. This is ideal for any kind of video source encoded with Dolby
Surround, Dolby Digital or DTS (especially large-scale movie productions).
Sci-Fi
This program clearly reproduces dialog and sound effects in the latest sound form of
science fiction films, thus creating a broad and expansive cinematic space amid the
silence. You can enjoy science fiction films in a virtual-space sound field that includes
Dolby Surround, Dolby Digital and DTS-encoded software employing the most advanced
techniques.
Adventure
This program is ideal for precisely reproducing the sound design of the newest 70-mm
and multichannel soundtrack films. The sound field is made to be similar to that of the
newest movie theaters, so the reverberations of the sound field itself are restrained as
much as possible.
General
This program is for reproducing sounds from 70-mm and multichannel soundtrack films,
and is characterized by a soft and extensive sound field. The presence sound field is
relatively narrow. It spatially spreads all around and toward the screen, restraining the
echo effect of conversations without losing clarity.
Enhanced Mode

TV SPORTS
With this program, you can enjoy watching various TV programs such as news, variety shows,
music programs or sports programs. In a stereo broadcast of a sports game, the commentator is
oriented at the center position, and the shouts and the atmosphere in the stadium spread on the
surround side, while their spread to the rear is properly restrained.

MONO MOVIE
This program is provided for reproducing monaural video sources (such as old movies). The
program produces the optimum reverberation to create sound depth by using only the presence
sound field.

ADVANCED
OPERATION
This program ideally simulates the multi-surround speaker systems of the 35-mm film
theaters. Dolby Pro Logic decoding, Dolby Digital decoding or DTS decoding and digital
sound field processing create precise effects without altering the original sound
orientation.
The surround effects produced by this sound field wrap around the viewer naturally from
the back to the left and right, and toward the screen.

automatically tune in to FM stations with strong signals,
and to store up to 40 (8 stations x 5 groups) of those
stations in order. This feature enables you to easily tune in
to any preset station by selecting the preset station
number (see page 37).
INTRODUCTION
■ Automatically presetting stations
(for FM stations)
• Any stored station data existing under a preset number is
cleared when you store a new station under that preset number.
• When a station data is stored under a preset number, the
frequency and reception band are also stored.
• You can manually replace a preset station with another FM or
AM station by simply following the procedure in the section
“Manually presetting stations” on page 36.
• If the number of the received stations does not reach E8,
automatic preset tuning has automatically stopped after
searching all stations.
• Only FM stations with sufficient signal strength are stored
automatically by automatic preset tuning. If the station you
want to store is weak in signal strength, tune in to it manually
in the monaural mode, and store it by following the procedure
in “Manually presetting stations” on page 36.

INTRODUCTION
Use this feature to adjust the delay of the center channel
sounds. This feature works when there is sound output
from the center speaker, with a source like Dolby Digital
or DTS, etc. Ideally, the center speaker should be the
same distance from the main listening position as the left
and right speakers. However, in most home situations, the
center speaker is placed in line with the main speakers.
By delaying the sound from the center speaker, the
apparent distance from the center speaker to the main
listening position can be adjusted to make it seem the
same as the distance between the main left and right
speaker to the listening position. Adjusting the delay time
for the center speaker is especially important for giving
depth to the dialogue.
4 D. RANGE (dynamic range)

GLOSSARY
■ Dolby Surround
Dolby Surround uses a 4 channel analog recording system
to reproduce realistic and dynamic sound effects: 2 main
left and right channels (stereo), a center channel for
dialog (monaural), and a rear channel for special sound
effects (monaural). The rear channel reproduces sound
within a narrow frequency range.
Dolby Surround is widely used with nearly all video tapes
and laser discs, and in many TV and cable broadcasts as
well. The Dolby Pro Logic decoder built into this unit
employs a digital signal processing system that
automatically stabilizes the volume on each channel to
enhance moving sound effects and directionality.
■ DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
Digital Surround
DTS digital surround was developed to replace the analog
soundtracks of movies with a 6-channel digital sound
track, and is now rapidly gaining popularity in movie
theaters around the world. Digital Theater Systems Inc.
has developed a home theater system so that you can
enjoy the depth of sound and natural spatial
representation of DTS digital surround in your home.
This system produces practically distortion-free 6-channel
sound (technically, a left, right and center channels, 2 rear
channels, plus an LFE 0.1 channel as a subwoofer, for a
total of 5.1 channels).
■ Dolby Digital
■ LFE 0.1 channel
Dolby Digital is a digital surround sound system that
gives you completely independent multi-channel audio.
With 3 front channels (left, center, and right), and 2 rear
stereo channels, Dolby Digital provides 5 full-range audio
channels. With an additional channel especially for bass
effects, called LFE (low frequency effect), the system has
a total of 5.1 channels (LFE is counted as 0.1 channel).
By using 2-channel stereo for the rear speakers, more
accurate moving sound effects and surround sound
environment are possible than with Dolby Surround. The
wide dynamic range (from maximum to minimum
volume) reproduced by the 5 full-range channels and the
precise sound orientation generated using digital sound
processing provide listeners with previously unheard of
excitement and realism.
With this unit, any sound environment from monaural up
to a 5.1-channel configuration can be freely selected for
your enjoyment.
This channel is for the reproduction of low bass signals.
The frequency range for this channel is 20 Hz to 120 Hz.
This channel is counted as 0.1 because it only enforces a
low frequency range compared to the full-range
reproduced by the other 5 channels in a Dolby Digital or
DTS 5.1 channel systems.
■ Matrix 6.1
The unit incorporates Matrix 6.1 decoder for Dolby
Digital and DTS multi-channel software that enables 6.1channel reproduction by adding the rear center channel to
existing 5.1-channel format. (The rear center channel is
created from rear left and right channels, and outputted
from virtual rear center speaker.) With this additional
channel, you can experience more dynamic and realistic
moving sound especially with scenes with “fly-over ” and
“fly-around ” effects.
■ CINEMA DSP
■ SILENT CINEMA
YAMAHA has developed a natural, realistic sound effect
DSP algorithm for headphones.
Parameters for headphones have been set for each sound
field so that accurate representations of all the sound field
programs can be enjoyed using headphones.
■ Dolby Pro Logic
Dolby Pro Logic is an improved technique used to
decode vast numbers of existing Dolby Surround
softwares. This new technology enables a discrete 5channel playback with 2 main left and right channels, 1
center channel, and 2 rear left and right channels (instead
of only 1 rear channel for conventional Pro Logic
technology). A music mode is also available for 2-channel
sources in addition to the movie mode.

Since the Dolby Surround and DTS systems were
originally designed for use in movie theaters, their effect
is best felt in a theater having many speakers and
designed for acoustic effects. Since home conditions,
such as room size, wall material, number of speakers, and
so on, can differ so widely, it’s inevitable that there are
differences in the sound heard as well. Based on a wealth
of actually measured data, YAMAHA CINEMA DSP uses
YAMAHA original sound field technology to combine
Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Digital and DTS systems to
provide the visual and audio experience of movie theater
in the listening room of your own home.

GLOSSARY
■ Virtual CINEMA DSP
INTRODUCTION
YAMAHA has developed a virtual CINEMA DSP
algorithm that allows you to enjoy DSP sound field
surround effects even without any rear speakers by using
virtual rear speakers.
It is even possible to enjoy virtual CINEMA DSP using a
minimal 2-speaker system that does not include a center
speaker.
■ PCM (Linear PCM)
PREPARATION
Linear PCM is a signal format under which an analog
audio signal is digitized, recorded and transmitted without
using any compression. This is used as a method of
recording CDs and DVD audio. The PCM system uses a
technique for sampling the size of the analog signal per
very small unit of time. Standing for “pulse code
modulation”, the analog signal is encoded as pulses and
then modulated for recording.
■ Sampling frequency and number
of quantized bits
BASIC
OPERAIONT
ADVANCED
OPERATION
When digitizing an analog audio signal, the number of
times the signal is sampled per second is called the
sampling frequency, while the degree of fineness when
converting the sound level into a numeric value is called
the number of quantized bits.
The range of rates that can be played back is determined
based on the sampling rate, while the dynamic range
representing the sound level difference is determined by
the number of quantized bits. In principle, the higher the
sampling frequency, the wider the range of frequencies
that can be played back, and the higher the number of
quantized bits, the more finely the sound level can be
reproduced.
