HD Audio Format Support
This receiver lets you enjoy the best possible and
newest surround sound from both Bluray Disc players and HD-DVD players.
It supports the two lossy formats:
Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD High
Resolution Audio, as well as the lossless
formats: Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.
Digital ToP-ART with Audio-Grade Parts and
Devices Used Throughout
Yamaha’s Digital ToP-ART concept combines the
latest and best technologies, parts and circuit
designs to maximise sound quality. These include a
12,000µF custommade block
capacitors (1), high
grade Burr-Brown

parts (4). The
DSP-AX863SE also has all channel discrete amplifier
configuration. High Current Amplification circuitry
achieves high current power with low impedance for
superior amplifier performance.
Pure Direct for Highest Sound Quality
Pure Direct is a special mode that causes the signal
to bypass all but the most basic audio circuitry, and
even turns off the display to prevent any chance of
noise interference. It provides the purest possible
high-fidelity sound for your music sources.

Fine-Tuned CINEMA DSP and Adaptive DSP Level
Yamaha’s much-praised CINEMA DSP
programmes have been fine-tuned for even better
sound with the latest generation CINEMA DSP
technology*. As a result, the source and the
sound field are in closer harmony, providing a
delightful new CINEMA DSP experience.
When volume is low, CINEMA DSP effects
may be difficult to hear. Adaptive DSP Level
overcomes this problem by evaluating the
difference between the volume level and a
reference level, and adjusting the DSP level to
ensure optimum effectiveness, that is, the best
possible sound.
(*Note: CINEMA DSP programmes are not compatible with Dolby
TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD Master Audio and DTS-HD
High Resolution Audio.)

Bi-Amping Assignability
Bi-amping is an advanced feature that lets you enjoy
superior sound quality. It assigns the surround back
channels to provide separate low frequency and
mid/high frequency allocation to the front channels,
thus improving sound clarity in all frequency ranges.
watching the on-screen display. The settings can be
selected for one-time use, or they can replace the
original default settings. When a Yamaha DVD or CD
player with SCENE compatibility is connected to the
Remote Out jack, it can be operated via the
receiver’s SCENE functions. (* With an external FM/AM/DAB
tuner)
1080p-Compatible HDMI (3 In/1 Out)
The HDMI interface upgrades the transmission of
standard, enhanced and high-definition signals via
a single HDMI cable, providing extremely high
video quality. Three HDMI inputs allow users to
connect three high-definition sources such as Bluray Discs or HD-DVD players and switch between
them. The DSP-AX863SE also provides the
benefits of Deep Colour (30/36bit), the x.v.Colour
standard, automatic audio and video
synchronisation (Lip-Sync) capability and
1080p/24Hz support.

SCENE — Greater Operating Ease
Four SCENE buttons make operating the receiver
easier than ever. Pressing a SCENE button
automatically turns the power on and launches a
number of operations that initiate play of the
source controlled by that button. Many SCENE
settings are also available, such as Dock
Listening, Radio Listening*, TV Sports Viewing and
Game Playing (with 17 preset SCENE templates).
Browsing and selecting the settings is quickly
accomplished by rotating the Input knob and
High Picture Quality
Improved YPAO Sound Optimisation
The DSP-AX863SE has an improved YPAO system
that automatically selects the crucial frequency bands
for the listening room, and adjusts the level of the
selected bands to create a cohesive sound field in the
room. You can vary the type of the parametric
equaliser adjustment among Natural, Flat and Front. In
addition, the YPAO Setup Menu appears when the
YPAO mic is plugged in, so you can just run it using
the system menu showing in the OSD without referring
to the owner's manual.
Adaptive DRC
Adaptive DRC (Dynamic Range Control) is a new
volume control technology that is effective for lowvolume listening, such as at night or with
headphones. It applies DRC processing to eliminate
the volume differences between loud commercials
and ordinary programming and to take into account
our ears’ loss of sensitivity as volume decreases.
