Surround speakers (SR and SL)
Speaker placement
The surround speakers are used for effect and surround
sounds. Place these speakers behind your listening
position, facing slightly inwards, about 1.8 m (6 ft) above
the floor.
C
FR
FL
Surround back speaker (SB)
The surround back speaker supplements the surround
speakers and provide for more realistic front-to-back
transitions. Place this speaker directly behind the listening
position and at the same height as the surround speakers.

The speaker layout above shows the standard ITU-R speaker
setting.
1.8 m
Front speakers (FR and FL)
The front speakers are used for the main source sound plus
effect sounds. Place these speakers an equal distance from
the ideal listening position. The distance of each speaker
from each side of the video monitor should be the same.
Center speaker (C)
The center speaker is for the center channel sounds
(dialog, vocals, etc.). If for some reason it is not practical
to use a center speaker, you can do without it. Best results,
however, are obtained with the full system. Align the front
face of the center speaker with the front face of your video
monitor. Place the speaker centrally between the front
speakers and as close to the monitor as possible, such as
directly over or under it.
8
The use of a subwoofer, such as the YAMAHA Active
Servo Processing Subwoofer System, is effective not only
for reinforcing bass frequencies from any or all channels,
but also for high fidelity reproduction of the LFE (lowfrequency effect) channel included in Dolby Digital and
DTS software. 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
front speakers. Turn it slightly toward the center of the
room to reduce wall reflections.

SPEAKER SETUP
Speaker connections
4
Return the tab to secure the wire.
Be sure to connect the left channel (L), right channel (R),
“+” (colored) 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.
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 ridges.
Connect the striped (grooved, etc.) cable to the “+”
(colored) terminals on this unit and your speaker. Connect
the plain cable to the “–” (black) terminals.
L
PREPARATION
CAUTION
• If you will use 6 ohm speakers, be sure to set this unit’s
speaker impedance setting to 6 ohms before using (see
“IMPEDANCE SELECTOR switch” on page 10).
• Before connecting the speakers, make sure that the
power of this unit is off.
• Do not let the bare speaker wires touch each other or do
not let them touch any metal part of this unit. This
could damage this unit and/or speakers.
• Use magnetically shielded speakers. If this type of
speakers still creates the interference with the monitor,
place the speakers away from the monitor.

Notes
• The AM loop antenna should be placed away from this unit and
all speaker cords.
• The AM loop antenna should always be connected, even if an
outdoor AM antenna is connected to this unit.
• A properly installed outdoor antenna provides clearer reception
than an indoor one. If you experience poor reception quality, an
outdoor antenna may improve the quality. Consult the nearest
authorized YAMAHA dealer or service center about outdoor
antennas.
■ Frequency Step (Asia and General
models only)
Ground (GND terminal)
For minimum interference, connect the
antenna GND terminal to a good earth
ground. A good earth ground is a metal
stake driven into moist earth.

• If you turn off the sound effects, no sound is output from the
center speaker, surround speakers, or surround back speaker.
• If you turn off the sound effects while the unit is reproducing
sound from a Dolby Digital or DTS signal, the dynamic range
of the signal is automatically compressed and the unit
downmixes the sound of the center and surround speaker
channels to output them from the front speakers.
• The volume may be greatly reduced when you turn off the
sound effects or if you set Dynamic Range to “MIN” (see
page 42). In this case, turn on the sound effect.
English
• If no operation is performed within 5 seconds of pressing DSP
on the front panel, the function of VOLUME/SELECT switches
back to volume.
• There are 9 programs with sub-programs available with this
unit. However, the selection depends on the input signal format
and not all sub-programs can be used with all input signal
formats.
• The acoustics of your listening room affect the sound field
program. Minimize the sound reflections in your room to
maximize the effect created by the program.
• When you select an input source, this unit automatically selects
the last sound field program used with that source.
• When you set this unit in standby mode, it stores the current
source and sound field program in memory and automatically
selects them when you turn on the power again.
• If the unit receives a Dolby Digital or DTS signal when the
input mode is set to AUTO, the CINEMA DSP sound field
programs automatically switches to the appropriate decoding
program.
• When the unit is reproducing a monaural source with PRO
LOGIC, PRO LOGIC Enhanced, PRO LOGIC II Movie or PRO
LOGIC IIx Movie, no sound is output from the front and
surround speakers. Sound can only be heard from the center
speaker. (If “Center” on the SOUND menu is set to None, the
center channel sound is output from the front speakers.)

• 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”.
Memory back-up
The memory back-up circuit prevents the stored data
from being lost even if this unit is set in the standby
mode, the power cord is disconnected from the AC
outlet, or the power supply is temporarily cut due to
power failure. However, if the power is cut for more
than one week, the preset stations may be cleared. If
so, store the stations again by using the presetting
station methods.

Use this feature to manually input the distance of each
speaker and adjust the delay applied to respective channel.
Ideally, each speaker should be the same distance from the
main listening position. However, this is not possible in
most home situations. Thus, a certain amount of delay
must be applied to the sound from each speaker so that all
sound will arrive at the listening position at the same time.

EDITING SOUND FIELD PARAMETERS
EDITING SOUND FIELD PARAMETERS
What is a sound field
What really creates the rich, full tones of a live instrument
are the multiple reflections from the walls of the room. In
addition to making the sound “live”, these reflections
enable us to tell where the player is situated, and the size
and shape of the room in which we are sitting.
Sound field parameter
descriptions
You can adjust the values of certain digital sound field
parameters so the sound fields are recreated accurately in
your listening room. Not all of the following parameters
are found in every program.
y
For details on how to change parameter settings, see page 39.
HALL
■ Elements of a sound field
In any environment, in addition to the direct sound coming
straight to our ears from the player’s instrument, there are
two distinct types of sound reflections that combine to
make up the sound field:

Early reflections
Reflected sounds reach our ears extremely rapidly (50 ms
– 100 ms after the direct sound), after reflecting from one
surface only — for example, from the ceiling or a wall.
Early reflections actually add clarity to the direct sound.

Reverberations
These are caused by reflections from more than one
surface — walls, ceiling, the back of the room — so
numerous that they merge together to form a continuous
sonic “afterglow”. They are non-directional, and lessen
the clarity of the direct sound.
Direct sound, early reflections and subsequent
reverberation taken together help us to determine the
subjective size and shape of the room, and it is this
information that the digital sound field processor
reproduces in order to create sound fields.
If you could create the appropriate early reflections and
subsequent reverberations in your listening room, you
would be able to create your own listening environment.
The acoustics in your room could be changed to those of a
concert hall, a dance floor, or virtually any size room at
all. This ability to create sound fields at will is exactly
what YAMAHA has done with the digital sound field
processor.

■ Dolby Surround
■ Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Surround uses a 4 channel analog recording system
to reproduce realistic and dynamic sound effects: 2 front
left and right channels (stereo), a center channel for dialog
(monaural), and a surround channel for special sound
effects (monaural). The surround 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.
Dolby Pro Logic II is an improved technique used to
decode vast numbers of existing Dolby Surround software.
This new technology enables a discrete 5-channel
playback with 2 front left and right channels, 1 center
channel, and 2 surround left and right channels (instead of
only 1 surround channel for conventional Pro Logic
technology). A music mode is also available for 2-channel
sources in addition to the movie mode.
■ Dolby Digital
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 surround
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 surround 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.
Dolby Digital EX creates 6 full-bandwidth output
channels from 5.1-channel sources. This is done using a
matrix decoder that derives 3 surround channels from the
2 in the original recording. For the best results, Dolby
Digital EX should be used with movie sound tracks
recorded with Dolby Digital Surround EX. With this
additional channel, you can experience more dynamic and
realistic moving sound especially with scenes with
“flyover” and “fly-around” effects.
56
■ Dolby Pro Logic IIx
Dolby Pro Logic IIx is a new technology enabling discrete
7.1-channel playback from 2-channel or multi-channel
sources. There is a Music mode for music, a Movie mode
for movies and a Game mode for games.
■ 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 surround channels, plus
an LFE 0.1 channel as a subwoofer, for a total of 5.1
channels).
The unit incorporates DTS-ES decoder that enables 6.1channel reproduction by adding the surround back channel
to existing 5.1-channel format.
■ Neo:6
Neo:6 decodes the conventional 2-channel sources for 6
channel playback by the specific decoder. It enables
playback with the full-range channels with higher
separation just like digital discrete signal playback. Two
modes are available; “Music mode” for playing music
sources and “Cinema mode” for movies.
■ LFE 0.1 channel
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 5/6 channels in a Dolby Digital or
DTS 5.1/6.1 channel systems.

GLOSSARY
■ CINEMA DSP
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.
■ 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 on headphones.
■ Virtual CINEMA DSP
YAMAHA has developed a Virtual CINEMA DSP
algorithm that allows you to enjoy DSP sound field
surround effects even without any surround speakers by
using virtual surround speakers.
It is even possible to enjoy Virtual CINEMA DSP using a
minimal two-speaker system that does not include a center
speaker.
■ Sampling frequency and number of
quantized bits
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.
■ ITU-R
ITU-R is the radio communication sector of the ITU
(International Telecommunication Union). ITU-R
recommends a standard speaker placement which is used
in many critical listening rooms, especially for mastering
purposes.
■ PCM (Linear PCM)
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
