PROFILE OF THIS UNIT
You are the proud owner of Yamaha DSP-E390 – an extremely sophisticated audio component. The Digital Sound Field Processor
(DSP) built into this unit takes full advantage of Yamaha’s undisputed leadership in the field of digital audio processing to bring you a
whole new world of listening experiences. Follow the instructions in this manual carefully when setting up your system, and this unit
will sonically transform your room into a totally new listening environment –movie theater, concert hall, and so on. In addition, you
get incredible realism from Dolby Surround-encoded video sources using the built-in Dolby Pro Logic Surround Decoder.
Please read this operation manual carefully and store it in a safe place for later reference.
Digital Sound Field Processing
What is it that makes live music so good? Today’s advanced
sound reproduction technology lets you get extremely close to
the sound of a live performance, but chances are you’ll still
notice something missing: the acoustic environment of the live
concert hall. Extensive research into the exact nature of the
sonic reflections that create the ambience of a large hall has
made it possible for Yamaha engineers to bring you this same
sound in your own listening room, so you’ll feel all the sound of
a live concert.
Furthermore, our technicians, armed with sophisticated
measuring equipment, have even made it possible to capture
the acoustics of a variety of venues such as an actual concert
hall, theater, etc. to allow you to accurately recreate one of
several live performance environments in your own home.
Dolby Pro Logic Surround
The Dolby Pro Logic Surround Decoder program lets you
experience the dramatic realism and impact of a Dolby
Surround movie theater sound in your own home. Dolby Pro
Logic gets its name from its professional-grade steering logic
circuitry, which provides greater effective front and rear
channel separation for a much higher degree of realism than
the “passive” Dolby Surround circuits found in less
sophisticated home audio/video equipment. Dolby Pro Logic
Surround provides a true center channel, so there are four
independent channels, unlike passive Dolby Surround which
has in effect only three channels: left, right, and rear. This
center channel allows listeners seated in even less-than-ideal
positions to hear the dialog originating from action on the
screen while getting a stereo effect as well.
Dolby Pro Logic Surround + DSP
You can also enjoy a combination of Dolby Pro Logic Surround
and DSP in the sound field program “
PRO LOGIC
ENHANCED”.
It recreates the surround effect of a movie theater, effectively
duplicating its multiple surround loudspeaker system,
completely surrounding the listener with the sounds of the
action taking place on the screen.
4
This Dolby Pro Logic Surround Decoder employs a digital
signal processing system. This system increases sound
stability at each channel and minimizes crosstalk between
channels compared to conventional analog Dolby signal
processing.
In addition, this unit features a built-in automatic input balance
control. This circuit always presents you the best surround
conditions without performing manual adjustments.
SPEAKER SETUP
SPEAKERS TO BE USED
This unit is designed to provide the best sound-field quality with a 5 speaker configuration. The most effective speakers to use with
this unit are front speakers, rear speakers and a center speaker. You may omit the center speaker. (Refer to the “4-Speaker
Configuration” shown below.)
The front speakers are used for the main source sound plus the effect sounds. They will probably be the speakers from your
present stereo system. The rear speakers are used for the effect and surround sounds, and the center speaker is for the center
sounds (dialog etc.) within the Dolby Surround encoded programs. The center speaker needs to be equal in power to the front
speakers, although the rear speakers should not be equal. However, all the speakers should have high enough power handling to
accept the maximum output of this unit.
SPEAKER CONFIGURATION
5-Speaker Configuration
4-Speaker Configuration
This configuration is the most effective and recommended one.
In this configuration, the center speaker is necessary as well as
the rear speakers. If the digital sound field program DOLBY
PRO LOGIC or DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED is selected,
conversations will be output from the center speaker and the
ambience will be excellent.
● Set the center channel mode to the “NORMAL” or “WIDE”
position. (For details, refer to page 10.)
The center speaker is not used in this configuration. If the
digital sound field program DOLBY PRO LOGIC or DOLBY
PRO LOGIC ENHANCED is selected, the center sound is
output from the left and the right front speakers. However, the
sound effect of other programs can be the same as that of the
5-speaker configuration.
● Be sure to set the center channel mode to the “PHANTOM”
position. (For details, refer to page 10.)

USING DIGITAL SOUND FIELD PROCESSOR (DSP)
This unit incorporates a sophisticated, multi-program digital sound field processor, which allows you to expand and shape the audio
sound field from both the audio and video sources, for a theater-like experience in the listening/viewing room.
This digital sound field processor has 6 programs; 4 programs for digital sound field processing and 2 programs for the Dolby Pro
Logic Surround sound system (DOLBY PRO LOGIC and DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED). You can create an excellent audio
sound field by selecting the suitable program and adding desired adjustments. In addition, when the DOLBY PRO LOGIC or
DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED program is selected, the built-in automatic input balance control functions. This presents you the
best surround condition without manual adjustment.
Description of Each Sound Field Program
The following list gives brief descriptions 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. The data for them was recorded at the locations described
using sophisticated sound field measurement equipment.
Note
The channel level balance between the left rear effect speaker and the right rear effect speaker may vary depending on the
sound field you are listening to. This is due to the fact that most of these sound field recreations are actual acoustic
environments.

ENHANCED
FEATURE
This program is effective for playback of sources encoded with Dolby Surround.
The employment of the digital signal processing system improves crosstalk and transfers the sound source
more smoothly and precisely, compared to the conventional type. A stable movie sound field is recreated.
This program is effective for playback of sources encoded with Dolby Surround.
Enhancing the “Normal” Dolby Pro Logic, the DSP technology simulates the multi-surround speaker
systems of a 35 mm film theater, thus widening the surrounded-sound field with greater presence.
CONCERT VIDEO
This program is effective for music videos and gives excellent depth and clarity for vocals. For opera, the
orchestra and stage are ideally recreated, letting you feel as if you were in an actual concert hall.
MONO MOVIE
This program is designed specifically to enhance mono source programs. Compared to a strictly mono
setting, the sound image created in this mode is wider and slightly forward of the speaker pair, lending an
immediacy to the overall sound. It is particularly effective when used with old mono movies, news
broadcasts and dialog.
ROCK CONCERT
This program is suitable for rock music. A big, powerful sound is reproduced lively and dynamically.
CONCERT HALL
In this program, the center seems deep behind the front speaker pair, creating an expansive, large hall
ambience.
Description of Dolby Pro Logic Surround
DOLBY PRO LOGIC SURROUND: This unit employs
the Dolby Pro Logic Surround system. This system is similar to
professional Dolby Stereo decoders used in movie theaters.
By employing a four-channel system, the Dolby Pro Logic
Surround system divides the input signals into four levels: the
left and right main channels, the center channel (to
characterize dialog), and the rear surround-sound channels (to
characterize sound effects, background noise and other
ambient noise).
Dolby Surround is encoded on the sound track of commercially
available video cassettes and video discs as well. When you
play a source encoded with Dolby Surround on your home
video system, the Dolby Pro Logic Surround system in this unit
decodes the signal and feeds the surround-sound effects.
The Dolby Pro Logic Surround mode may not be always
effective on video sources not encoded with Dolby Surround.

Note
If this unit is connected to the TAPE REC OUT terminals of
the integrated amplifier etc., the following operations are
needed.
• If your amplifier has the REC OUT selector which is
independent of the input selector;
1. Set the input selector to the position (AUX, TAPE, etc.)
which corresponds to the amplifier’s terminals
connected to this unit’s FRONT OUT terminals.
2. Select the source to be input to this unit using the REC
OUT selector.
• If your amplifier does not have the REC OUT selector
which is independent of the input selector;
1. Set the TAPE monitor switch on the amplifier to on.
2. Select the source to be input to this unit using the input
selector.
Adjust to the desired output level.

If desired, adjust the delay time and the output level of
each speaker. (For details, refer to the corresponding
descriptions on page 14 and 15.)

To obtain the best performance of this unit:
If the connecting method of your components is A or C
shown on pages 6–7, set the volume control on the integrated
amplifier or control amplifier to about the halfway position
between the min. and max.
Notes
● If you prefer to cancel the DSP, press the EFFECT switch.
The sound will be the normal 2-channel stereo without
surround sound effect.
●
When CONCERT VIDEO, MONO MOVIE, ROCK
CONCERT or CONCERT HALL is selected, no sound is
heard from the center speaker.
●
When a monaural sound source is played with DOLBY
PRO LOGIC or DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED, no
sound is heard from the front speakers and the rear
speakers. Sound is heard only from the center speaker.
However, if the center channel mode is in PHANTOM, the
front speakers output the sound of the center channel.
●
When this unit’s Dolby Pro Logic Surround system is used,
if the main-source sound is considerably altered by
overadjustment of the BASS or TREBLE controls on the
integrated amplifier etc., the relationship between the center
and rear channels may produce an unnatural effect.
●
If the connected external amplifier has a built-in surround
sound or ambience circuitry, be sure that the surround or
ambience circuitry on that amplifier is off while you are
using this unit’s Dolby Pro Logic Surround system.
●
If the digital sound field program CONCERT VIDEO, MONO
MOVIE, ROCK CONCERT or CONCERT HALL is selected,
this adjustment is useless.
●
Once the output level is adjusted, the level value will be the
same in the DOLBY PRO LOGIC and DOLBY PRO LOGIC
ENHANCED programs.
●
If no program is used, this adjustment is useless.
Adjustment of the CENTER LEVEL
If desired, you can adjust the sound output level of the center
speaker even if the output level is already set in “SPEAKER
BALANCE ADJUSTMENT” on page 11.

If no program is used, this adjustment is useless.
Adjustment of DELAY TIME
You can adjust the time difference between the beginning of
the source sound and the beginning of the effect sound with
the DELAY TIME keys.
The DELAY TIME keys are effective with all programs.
By applying more or less delay, sound effects, background
noise, and ambient noise coming at you from the rear speakers
can be enhanced or subdued for extra effect.

Notes
● Adding too much delay will cause an unnatural effect with
some sources. Experiment with the DELAY TIME keys to
create the effect that you find most suitable.
●
The values of the DELAY TIME you set the last time will
remain memorized even when the power of this unit is off.
However, if the power cord is kept disconnected for more
than one week, these values will be automatically changed
back to the original factory settings.

Battery replacement
If you find that the remote control transmitter must be used
closer to the main unit, the batteries are weak. Replace both
batteries with new ones.
Notes
● Use only AA, R6, UM-3 batteries for replacement.
● Be sure the polarities are correct. (See the illustration inside
the battery compartment.)
● Remove the batteries if the remote control transmitter will
not be used for an extended period of time.
● If batteries leak, dispose of them immediately. Avoid
touching the leaked material or letting it come in contact with
clothing, etc. Clean the battery compartment thoroughly
before installing new batteries.
Notes
● There should be no large obstacles between the remote
control transmitter and the main unit.
● If the remote control sensor is directly illuminated by strong
lighting (especially an inverter type of fluorescent lamp etc.),
it might cause the remote control transmitter not to work
correctly. In this case, reposition the main unit to avoid direct
lighting.
