CONNECTIONS
Subwoofer (SWFR)
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
(low-frequency 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.

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.
Surround speakers (SR and SL)
The surround speakers are used for effect and surround
sounds. Place these speakers behind your listening
position, facing slightly inwards, about 1.8 m above the
floor.

CONNECTIONS
■ Speaker connections
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.
• 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.
Connecting to the FRONT A SPEAKERS terminals
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 “+” (red) terminals on this unit
and your speaker. Connect the plain cable to the “–” (black) terminals.
1
Remove approximately 10 mm of insulation
from the end of each of the speaker cables.
2
Twist the exposed wires of the cable
together to prevent short circuits.
3
Loosen the head of the screw.
4
Insert one bare wire into the hole in the side
of each terminal.

When using a subwoofer with built-in amplifier, including the YAMAHA Active Servo Processing Subwoofer System,
connect the input jack of the subwoofer system to this jack. This unit will direct low bass signals distributed from the
front, center and/or surround channels to this jack in accordance with your SPEAKER SET selections. The LFE (lowfrequency effect) signals generated when Dolby Digital or DTS is decoded are also directed to this jack in accordance
with your SPEAKER SET selections.
Notes

DIGITAL SOUND FIELD PROCESSING (DSP)
Understanding sound fields
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.
■ Recreating a sound field
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 four 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 four effect speakers to localize the
virtual sound sources and fully encompass the listener.
HiFi DSP programs
The following list gives you a brief description of the sound fields produced by each of the sound field programs. Keep
in mind that most of these are precise digital recreations of actual acoustic environments.

HALL IN CHINA
(China model only)
A large, extremely famous concert hall in China with approx. 650 seats on the first floor and
approx. 500 seats on the second floor. The clear sound field of this gorgeous and majestic hall is
suited especially for classic music. Your virtual seat is near the center on the first floor.

CINEMA DSP
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 Front 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.

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.
Straight Decode
The built-in decoder reproduces source sounds and sound-effects precisely.
No DSP effect is applied in this program.
Enhanced Mode
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.
Straight Decode
This unit is equipped with various precise decoders;
• Dolby Digital/DTS decoder for multi-channel reproduction of the original sound
• Dolby Pro Logic/Pro Logic II decoder for multi-channel reproduction of 2-channel sources
Select any of the Straight Decode modes in Program No. 9 (except for the sub-program “Enhanced”) as shown in the
above list to use any of these decoders for reproducing the original sound without any sound effects added. In this case,
no DSP effect is applied and the DSP indicator turns off.
Note
• When playing a monaural source with a CINEMA DSP program, the source signal is directed to the center channel, and the front
and surround speakers output effect sounds.

Sound field effects
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 Digital/DTS + DSP sound field effect
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

Notes
• Do not press FREQ/TEXT when an Radio Data System
station is being received until one or more Radio Data System
mode indicators light up on the front panel display. You cannot
change the mode if you press this button prior to this. This is
because this unit has not finished receiving all of the Radio
Data System data on the station.
• Radio Data System data not offered by the station cannot be
selected.
• This unit cannot utilize the Radio Data System data service if
the signal received is not strong enough. In particular, the RT
mode requires a large amount of data, so it is possible that the
RT mode may not be displayed even if other Radio Data
System modes (PS, PTY, etc.) are displayed.
• Sometimes, Radio Data System data cannot be received in
poor reception conditions. If this is the case, press TUNING
MODE so that the “AUTO” indicator disappears from the
front panel display. Although this will change the reception
mode to monoaural, Radio Data System data may be displayed
when you change the display to Radio Data System mode.

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.
■ 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).
■ Dolby Digital
■ ITU-R
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 fullrange 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.
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.
■ Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II is an improved technique used to
decode vast numbers of existing Dolby Surround
software. This new technology enables a discrete 5channel 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 2channel sources in addition to the movie mode.
■ Dolby Surround
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.
54
■ 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 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 surround back
channel to existing 5.1-channel format. (The surround
back channel is created from surround left and right
channels, and outputted from virtual surround back
speaker.) With this additional channel, you can experience
more dynamic and realistic moving sound especially with
scenes with “fly-over” and “fly-around” effects.
■ 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
very small unit of time. Standing for “pulse code
modulation”, the analog signal is encoded as pulses and
then modulated for recording.
GLOSSARY
■ 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.
■ 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.
■ 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 2-speaker system that does not include a center
speaker.
