Image and Sound Quality Worthy of the Name “Home Theater.”
Dedicated to the Creation of Fine Sound for Over a Century.
Yamaha’s involvement with sound began with the production of our first reed organ in 1887. Shortly thereafter, we began making pianos and other
instruments, and today we are the world’s largest producer of musical instruments. We also operate a worldwide music school, design concert halls and
produce innovative electronic instruments. Our audio components have long been recognized as the standard bearers of fine quality, and with the
development of Digital Sound Field Processing in 1986, we opened a new era in home entertainment. All of our acoustic and audio expertise is now
engineered into LSIs that we design and manufacture ourselves, and these powerful chips are
expanding and enhancing entertainment possibilities in the exciting new field of home theater.
Recently, we’ve also introduced state-of-the-art video components, and now offer everything
necessary for the finest in music and movie enjoyment at home.

Multi-Channel Surround Sound Enjoyment from A Single Component.
The YSP-1 is a genuine multi-channel home theater system — all in one unit! A true breakthrough in audio technology, it delivers sound from the
five front, surround and center channels to listeners just as though they were surrounded by five speakers. It can be positioned in the front center
or corners of the room. The thin design is an elegant match for flat panel monitors and simplifies placement. And naturally, there is no need to
find locations for multiple speakers or to run cables across the room. YSP-1: the elegant, all-in-one solution for home theater sound.
YSP-1 Digital Sound Projector
Revolutionary Surround Sound
The Yamaha Digital Sound Projector YSP-1 is an
exciting breakthrough in home theater technology.
Now you can get optimum multi-channel sound
directivity to enjoy the full benefits of home
theater all from one easily installed component.
No more multiple speakers, no more clutter,
no more hiding wires... just the pure excitement of
bringing your movies and music to life.
The YSP-1 is designed to be an ideal, slim
design match for your video display set. Although
it is only one component, there are actually 40
speaker drivers inside that project precisely
focused beams of sound aimed for optimum
surround sound effect.
12
True Multi-Channel Sound
As amazing as it seems, the YSP-1 can actually
deliver five channels of sound that surround
listeners the same way that sound from five front,
center and surround speakers does. Hear it and you
will believe it!
Simple Connection and
Flexible Placement
Multi-Source Enjoyment
As a home theater sound system,
the YSP-1 will generally be used for
movies on DVD, but it also brings
greater enjoyment to digital audio,
satellite TV, cable TV and other
multi-channel sources. It has builtin decoders for Dolby Digital, DTS,
Dolby Pro Logic II and DTS Neo:6.

Thin Profile Designed to Match Flat Panel Displays
If you own or are planning to purchase a flat panel
monitor, you probably wish you could also have thin
speakers, rather than the usual boxes on the front
and sides. The YSP-1 has a long, slim profile and
nicely matches the styling of thin monitors.
Digital Sound Projector
Digital Sound Projection Technology
The YSP-1 applies sophisticated Digital Sound Projection
Technology to precisely control the orientation of the sound by
focusing it into beams. The result is true 5.1-channel surround
sound without the need for extra speakers! With 42 digital
amplifiers driving 40 1-5/8” full-range drivers and two 4-3/8”
woofers, the Digital Sound Projector delivers 120W of total power
with dynamic bass response.
Sound is projected at the
listener from five directions:
straight ahead, reflected off one
wall, and reflected off two walls
(so it is heard from the rear).
Precise Calibration Produces Accurate
Multi-Channel Sound
You input a variety of parameters (once only)
to obtain the correct surround sound field.
First, you select room size (large, medium or
small), room shape (square or rectangular) and
speaker position (wall or corner). You can also
make fine adjustments with precise distances
from the listening position. Test tones are
provided to adjust beam angles via the remote
control for maximum surround effect. If you
will be moving the YSP-1, there are three
memory locations for storing different groups
of settings.
Precisely Focused Beams of Sound
Although it is one component, there are actually
40 small drivers and 2 woofers inside. The delay time
of each driver is controlled by a Digital Sound
Processing circuit, enabling the system to project
“beams” of sound which are precisely aimed for
optimum surround sound
effect. Naturally, high quality
two-channel (stereo) sound can
also be reproduced, as well as
three-channel sound if desired.

CINEMA DSP circuitry (that’s a lot of
processing power!) on a single board in its
own chamber, for greater efficiency and
isolation from possible interference.
High Definition CINEMA DSP Technology (RX-Z9)
The RX-Z9 has six times greater DSP capacity than previous models, thanks to an increase from 48kHz to 96kHz/24-bit A/D converters that can accept 96kHz signals for
direct digital conversion and processing. Higher density processing enables approximately triple the amount of early reflection data to be handled, for significantly richer
surround sound performance.
The RX-Z9 also employs 192kHz/24-bit D/A conversion and DSP processing and Yamaha’s 32-Bit Floating-Point Quantization System LSIs (four YSS-930s) for high
precision decoding of Dolby Digital, DTS Digital Surround, DTS 96/24, DTS-ES Discrete 6.1, DTS-ES Matrix 6.1, DTS Neo:6 and Dolby Pro Logic IIx formats.

PDM-5520 and PDM-4210: Yamaha
Plasma Display Monitors use the most
advanced technologies to deliver
superb performance.
e-ALIS Method Panel Technology (PDM-5520)
The PDM-5520 uses a highly advanced e-ALIS
Method (extended Alternate Lighting of Surface)
panel whose pixels are defined electronically rather
than physically, allowing each picture element to be
smaller than normal. This creates a higher pixel count
for a smoother, seamless picture. The panel employs
new plasma gas and luminescent material that are
more effective than previous types, and the area
coated with the luminescent material is greater. This
results in the industry’s highest level of brightness,
1,000 cd/m2, with the ability to display 1.07 billion
colors for spectacular color richness and purity.

sharp, clear picture with the smooth, high-definition
quality you see in a movie theater. The ALIS Method
employs a screen surface comprised of vertical channels
of continuous phosphor material. The pixels are defined
electronically rather than physically, allowing each
picture element to be smaller than normal. This creates a
higher pixel count for a smoother, seamless picture, with
edges and curves clearly defined. The PDM-4210 uses the
latest ALIS Method technology, which features new
plasma gas and luminescent material that are more
effective than previous types. The result is a brighter
picture (1,100 cd/m2) and higher color temperature,
which makes white areas such as clouds in the sky stand
out more vividly. The panel can also display a wider range
of colors (16.7 million), with enhanced color purity.
Natural Black Drive System
The Natural Black Drive System automatically
determines the brightness of the screen and applies the
gray scale (contrast) best suited to the scene in order to
reproduce both bright and dark areas with small details
clearly visible. The contrast ratio is an outstanding
1,000:1 under daylight condition, making it possible for

Digital Linear Color Control
Digital Linear Color Control continually maintains the
ideal balance between the three main colors (red,
green, blue) for optimum color reproduction in every
scene from very dark to very bright. The sharpness and
tint of each color are independently controlled, so you
can adjust the tint more precisely.
e-ALIS Method Panel Technology
The e-ALIS (extended ALIS) Method Panel technology was developed
to enable the use of the ALIS Method on large screens. Adopting
the shared electrode structure that is a special feature of ALIS on
the front panel permits the display of highly detailed images of 768
lines with 384 electrodes. 1/60 second (1 field) is divided twice into
odd number lines and even number lines to perform address, then
emits all pixels. During the next 1/60 second, the same operation is
done to display a 1/30 second image (1 frame).
Long Life of 60,000 Hours
Another benefit of the e-ALIS/ALIS Method Panel
technologies are lower power consumption and longer
panel life. The Yamaha Plasma Display Monitors will
provide high quality images for 60,000 hours,* about
twice as long as a typical CRT monitor.

directions) and Advanced YST (Yamaha Active Servo
Technology) to ensure the highest levels of sound
pressure and overall performance.
