channels but also for the surround left and right,
center and subwoofer channels.
11. Auto Setup/Room EQ
Use of the microphone for setup applications
measures the presence of speakers, the distance
to the speakers, and other information, and
permits automatic setup. The characteristics of
each speaker can also be corrected.
Auto setup requires a microphone for setup use.
12. Dual Surround Speaker Mode
Provides for the first time the ability to optimize
surround sound reproduction using two different
types of surround sound speakers as well as two
different surround speaker positions:
(1) Movie Surround
Motion picture soundtracks use the surround
channel(s) to provide the ambient elements of
the acoustic environment they want the
audience to realize. This is best accomplished
by the use of specially-designed surround
speakers that offer a wide diffusion pattern
(bipolar dispersion) or by using surround
speakers that provide broad dispersion with a
minimum of on-axis localization (dipolar
dispersion). Side wall mounting (closer to the
ceiling) of the surround speakers provides the
greatest envelopment, minimizing localization
of direct sound from the speakers.
(2) Music Surround
With full range discrete surround channels, as
well as three discrete full range front channels,
digital formats such as Dolby and DTS offer
thrilling surround sound music listening.
Producers of multi-channel discrete digital
music recordings almost always favor the use
of direct radiating (monopolar) surround
speakers, placed in the rear corners of the
room, since that is how they configure their
studios during the mixing/creation process.
The DENON AVR-3805 provides the ability to
connect two different sets of surround speakers,
and place them in the appropriate locations in your
AV theater room, so that you can enjoy both movie
soundtracks and music listening, with optimum
results and no compromise.
13. Multi Zone Music Entertainment System
Multi Source Function:
This unit’s Multi Source function lets you select
different audio sources for listening Different
sources can thus be enjoyed in the main room
(MAIN) and the subroom (ZONE2 and ZONE3)
simultaneously.
14. Future Sound Format Upgrade Capability via
Eight Channel Inputs & Outputs
For future multi-channel audio format(s), the AVR3805 is provided with 7.1 channel (seven main
channels, plus one low frequency effects channel)
inputs, along with a full set of 7.1 channel pre-amp
outputs, controlled by the 8 channel master
volume control. This assures future upgrade
possibilities for any future multi-channel sound
format.
15. Front input Terminal
The unit is equipped with a Front Input connector
for the convenient connection of a video camera
or other equipment.
16. Video Conversion Function
The AVR-3805 is equipped with a function for upconverting video signals.
Because of this, the AVR-3805’s MONITOR OUT
jack can be connected to the monitor (TV) with a
set of cables offering a higher quality connection,
regardless of how the player and the AVR-3805’s
video input jacks are connected.

NOTE:
Down-converting from the component video signal to the SVideo and composite video signal is not possible, so when not
using the component video monitor output terminal connect
the player using the S-Video or composite video input terminal.
Cautions on the video conversion function:
When the component video terminals are used to connect the
AVR-3805 with a TV (or monitor, projector, etc.) and the video
(yellow) or S video terminals are used to connect the AVR-3805
with a VTR, depending on the combination of the TV and VTR
the picture may flicker in the horizontal direction, be distorted,
be out of sync or not display at all when playing video tapes.
If this happens, connect a commercially available video
stabilizer, etc., with a TBC (time base corrector) function
between the AVR-3805 and the VTR, or if your VTR has a TBC
function, turn it on.

Connections
• When making connections, also refer to the operating instructions of the other components.
Speaker system connections
• Connect the speaker terminals with the speakers
making sure that like polarities are matched (≈ with
≈, √ with √ ). Mismatching of polarities will result
in weak central sound, unclear orientation of the
various instruments, and the sense of direction of
the stereo being impaired.
• When making connections, take care that none of
the individual conductors of the speaker cord come
in contact with adjacent terminals, with other
speaker cord conductors, or with the rear panel.
NOTE:
NEVER touch the speaker terminals when the
power is on.
Doing so could result in electric shocks.
Speaker Impedance
• Speakers with an impedance of from 6 to 16
Ω/ohms can be connected for use as front and
center speakers.
• Speakers with an impedance of 6 to 16 Ω/ohms
can be connected for use as surround speakers.
• Be careful when using two pairs of surround
speakers (A + B) at the same time, since use of
speakers with an impedance of less than 8 Ω/ohms
will lead to damage.
• The protector circuit may be activated if the set is
played for long periods of time at high volumes
when speakers with an impedance lower than the
specified impedance are connected.

Protector circuit
• This unit is equipped with a high-speed protection circuit. The purpose of this circuit is to protect the
speakers under circumstances such as when the output of the power amplifier is inadvertently shortcircuited and a large current flows, when the temperature surrounding the unit becomes unusually high, or
when the unit is used at high output over a long period which results in an extreme temperature rise.
When the protection circuit is activated, the speaker output is cut off and the power supply indicator LED
flashes. Should this occur, please follow these steps: be sure to switch off the power of this unit, check
whether there are any faults with the wiring of the speaker cables or input cables, and wait for the unit to
cool down if it is very hot. Improve the ventilation condition around the unit and switch the power back on.
If the protection circuit is activated again even though there are no problems with the wiring or the
ventilation around the unit, switch off the power and contact a DENON service center.
SURROUND BACK/MULTI ZONE SPEAKER SYSTEMS
SURROUND SPEAKER SYSTEMS (B)
Note on speaker impedance
• The protector circuit may be activated if the set is played for long periods of time at high volumes when
speakers with an impedance lower than the specified impedance (for example speakers with an
impedance of lower than 4 Ω/ohms) are connected. If the protector circuit is activated, the speaker output
is cut off. Turn off the set’s power, wait for the set to cool down, improve the ventilation around the set,
then turn the power back on.

NOTES:
• The on-screen display signals are output with priority to the S-VIDEO MONITOR OUT jack during playback
of a video component. For example, if the TV monitor is connected to both the AVR-3805’s S-Video and
video monitor output jacks and signals are input to the AVR-3805 from a video source (VDP, etc.) connected
to both the S-Video and video input jacks, the on-screen display signals are output with priority to the SVideo monitor output. If you wish to output the signals to the video monitor output jack, do not connect a
cord to the S-VIDEO MONITOR OUT jack. (For details, see page 29.)
• The AVR-3805’s on-screen display function is designed for use with high resolution monitor TVs, so it may
be difficult to read small characters on TVs with small screens or low resolutions.

When you adjust the channel levels while in the SYSTEM SETUP CHANNEL LEVEL mode, the channel
level adjustments made will affect all surround modes. Consider this mode a Master Channel Level
adjustment mode.
After you have completed the SYSTEM SETUP CHANNEL LEVEL adjustments, you can then activate the
individual surround modes and adjust channel levels that will be remembered for each of those modes.
Then, whenever you activate a particular surround sound mode, your preferred channel level adjustments
for just that mode will be recalled. Check the instructions for adjusting channel levels within each
surround mode. (See page 41)
You can adjust the channel levels for each of the following surround modes: PURE DIRECT/DIRECT,
STEREO, DOLBY/DTS SURROUND, 5/7 CH STEREO, WIDE SCREEN, SUPER STADIUM, ROCK ARENA,
JAZZ CLUB, CLASSIC CONCERT, MONO MOVIE, VIDEO GAME, MATRIX and VIRTUAL.
When using either surround speakers A or B, or when using surround speakers A and B at the same time,
be sure to adjust the balance of playback levels between each channel for the various selections of “A
or B” and “A and B”.

NOTE: For ordinary speaker systems, we recommend setting the crossover frequency to 80 Hz. When
using small speakers, however, setting the crossover frequency to a high frequency may improve
frequency response for frequencies near the crossover frequency.
— Subwoofer mode (2-5) —
• The subwoofer mode setting is only valid when “LARGE” is set for the front speakers and “YES” is set
for the subwoofer in the “Setting the type of speakers”. (see page 18).
• When the “LFE+MAIN” playback mode is selected, the low frequency signal range of channels set to
“LARGE” are produced simultaneously from those channels and the subwoofer channel.
In this playback mode, the low frequency range expand more uniformly through the room, but depending
on the size and shape of the room, interference may result in a decrease of the actual volume of the low
frequency range.
• Selection of the “LFE ” play mode will play the low frequency signal range of the channel selected with
“LARGE” from that channel only. Therefore, the low frequency signal range that are played from the
subwoofer channel are only the low frequency signal range of LFE (only during Dolby Digital or DTS signal
playback) and the channel specified as “SMALL” in the setup menu.
• Select the play mode that provides bass reproduction with quantity.
• When the subwoofer is set to “Yes”, bass sound is output from the subwoofer regardless of the
subwoofer mode setting in surround modes other than Dolby/DTS.
• In surround modes other than Dolby Digital and DTS, if the subwoofer is set to “YES”, the low frequency
portion is always output to the subwoofer channel. For details, refer to “Surround Modes and
Parameters”. (See page 61)

Cautions on the video conversion function:
When the component video terminals are used to connect the AVR-3805 with a TV (or monitor, projector,
etc.) and the video (yellow) or S video terminals are used to connect the AVR-3805 with a VTR, depending
on the combination of the TV and VTR the picture may flicker in the horizontal direction, be distorted, be
out of sync or not display at all when playing video tapes.
If this happens, connect a commercially available video stabilizer, etc., with a TBC (time base corrector)
function between the AVR-3805 and the VTR, or if your VTR has a TBC function, turn it on.

w Set three R03/AAA batteries in the battery
compartment in the indicated direction.
e Put the rear cover back on.
Notes on Batteries
• Use R03/AAA batteries in the remote control unit.
• The batteries should be replaced with new ones
approximately once a year, though this depends on
the frequency of usage.
• Even if less than a year has passed, replace the
batteries with new ones if the set does not operate
even when the remote control unit is operated
nearby the set. (The included battery is only for
verifying operation. Replace it with a new battery as
soon as possible.)
• When inserting the batteries, be sure to do so in the
proper direction, following the “≈” and “√” marks
in the battery compartment.
• To prevent damage or leakage of battery fluid:
• Do not use a new battery together with an old
one.
• Do not use two different types of batteries.
• Do not short-circuit, disassemble, heat or
dispose of batteries in flames.
• Remove the batteries from the remote control unit
when you do not plan to use it for an extended
period of time.
• If the battery fluid should leak, carefully wipe the
fluid off the inside of the battery compartment and
insert new batteries.
• When replacing the batteries, have the new
batteries ready and insert them as quickly as
possible.

DTS NEO:6 Mode:
• Cinema
This mode is optimum for playing movies. Decoding is performed with emphasis on separation
performance to achieve the same atmosphere with 2-channel sources as with 6.1-channel sources.
This mode is effective for playing sources recorded in conventional surround formats as well, because the
in-phase component is assigned mainly to the center channel (C) and the reversed phase component to
the surround (SL, SR and SB channels).
• Music
This mode is suited mainly for playing music. The front channel (FL and FR) signals bypass the decoder
and are played directly so there is no loss of sound quality, and the effect of the surround signals output
from the center (C) and surround (SL, SR and SB) channels add a natural sense of expansion to the sound
field.
CENTER IMAGE (0.0 to 1.0: default 0.3):
The center image parameter for adjusting the expansion of the center channel in the DTS NEO:6 MUSIC
mode has been added.

Surround parameters e
CINEMA EQ. (Cinema Equalizer):
The Cinema EQ function gently decreases the level of the extreme high frequencies, compensating for
overly-bright sounding motion picture soundtracks. Select this function if the sound from the front speakers
is too bright.
This function only works in the Dolby Pro Logic IIx, Dolby Digital, DTS Surround, DTS NEO:6 and WIDE
SCREEN modes. (The same contents are set for all operating modes.)
D.COMP. (Dynamic Range Compression):
Motion picture soundtracks have tremendous dynamic range (the contrast between very soft and very loud
sounds). For listening late at night, or whenever the maximum sound level is lower than usual, the Dynamic
Range Compression allows you to hear all of the sounds in the soundtrack (but with reduced dynamic range).
(This only works when playing program sources recorded in Dolby Digital or DTS.) Select one of the four
parameters (“OFF”, “LOW”, “MID” (middle) or “HI” (high)). Set to OFF for normal listening.
LFE (Low Frequency Effect):
This sets the level of the LFE (Low Frequency Effect) sounds included in the source when playing program
sources recorded in Dolby Digital or DTS.
If the sound produced from the subwoofer sounds distorted due to the LFE signals when playing Dolby Digital
or DTS sources when the peak limiter is turned off with the subwoofer peak limit level setting (system setup
menu), adjust the level as necessary.
Program source and adjustment range:
1. Dolby Digital:
–10 dB to 0 dB
2. DTS Surround:
–10 dB to 0 dB
When DTS encoded movie software is played, it is recommended that the LFE LEVEL be set to 0
dB for correct DTS playback.
When DTS encoded music software is played, it is recommended that the LFE LEVEL be set to –10
dB for correct DTS playback.
TONE:
This adjusts the tone control. This can be set individually for the separate shroud mode other than Pure direct
and direct mode.
AFDM (Auto Flag Detect Mode):
ON .......This function only works with software on which a special identification signal is recorded. This
software is scheduled to go on sale in the future.
This is a function for automatically playing in the 6.1-channel mode using the surround back

12 DSP SURROUND SIMULATION
• The AVR-3805 is equipped with a high performance DSP (Digital Signal Processor) which uses digital signal
processing to synthetically recreate the sound field. One of ten preset surround modes can be selected
according to the program source and the parameters can be adjusted according to the conditions in the
listening room to achieve a more realistic, powerful sound. These surround modes can also be used for
program sources not recorded in Dolby Surround Pro Logic, Dolby Digital or DTS.

The AVR-3805 is equipped the function of surround speakers selection that makes it possible to change the
settings according to the combination of surround speakers being used and the surrounding environment in
order to achieve the ideal surround sound for all sources. This means that you can connect a pair of bipolar or
dipolar surround speakers (mounted on either side of the prime listening position), as well as a separate pair
of direct radiating (monopolar) speakers placed at the rear corners of the listening room.
Surround back speakers
17 ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Optimum surround sound for different sources
A 6.1-channel system is a conventional 5.1-channel system to which the “surround back” (SB) channel has been
added. This makes it easy to achieve sound positioned directly behind the listener, something that was previously
difficult with sources designed for conventional multi surround speakers. In addition, the acoustic image
extending between the sides and the rear is narrowed, thus greatly improving the expression of the surround
signals for sounds moving from the sides to the back and from the front to the point directly behind the listening
position.
There are currently various types of multi-channel signals (signals or formats with more than two channels).
2 Types of multi-channel signals
Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic, DTS, high definition 3-1 signals (Japan MUSE Hi-Vision audio), DVD-Audio,
SACD (Super Audio CD), MPEG multi-channel audio, etc.

“Source” here does not refer to the type of signal (format) but the recorded content. Sources can be divided
into two major categories.
Types of sources
• Movie audio Signals created to be played in movie theaters. In general sound is recorded to be played in
movie theaters equipped with multiple surround speakers, regardless of the format (Dolby

These signals are designed to recreate a 360° sound field using three to five
speakers.
FR
In this case the speakers should surround the listener from all sides to
create a uniform sound field from 360°. Ideally the surround speakers
should function as “point” sound sources in the same way as the front
speakers.
SL
SR ch
Movement of acoustic image from SR to SL
In this case it is important to achieve the same
sense of expansion as in a movie theater with
the surround channels.
To do so, in some cases the number of
surround speakers is increased (to four or
eight) or speakers with bipolar or dipolar
properties are used.

With this set, speaker(s) for 1 or 2 channels are required to achieve a 6.1-channel system (DTS-ES, etc.). Adding
these speakers, however, increases the surround effect not only with sources recorded in 6.1 channels but also
with conventional 2- to 5.1-channel sources. The WIDE SCREEN mode is a mode for achieving surround sound
with up to 7.1 channels using surround back speakers, for sources recorded in conventional Dolby Surround as
well as Dolby Digital 5.1-channel and DTS Surround 5.1-channel sources. Furthermore, all the DENON original
surround modes (see page 36) are compatible with 7.1-channel playback, so you can enjoy 7.1-channel sound
with any signal source.
2 Number of surround back speakers
Though the surround back channel only consists of 1 channel of playback signals for 6.1-channel sources
(DTS-ES, etc.), we recommend using two speakers. When using speakers with dipolar characteristics in
particular, it is essential to use two speakers.
Using two speakers results in a smoother blend with the sound of the surround channels and better sound
positioning of the surround back channel when listening from a position other than the center.
2 Placement of the surround left and right channels when using surround back speakers
Using surround back speakers greatly improves the positioning of the sound at the rear. Because of this, the
surround left and right channels play an important role in achieving a smooth transition of the acoustic image
from the front to the back. As shown on the diagram above, in a movie theater the surround signals are also
produced from diagonally in front of the listeners, creating an acoustic image as if the sound were floating in
space.
To achieve these effects, we recommend placing the speakers for the surround left and right channels slightly
more towards the front than with conventional surround systems. Doing so sometimes increases the
surround effect when playing conventional 5.1-channel sources in the 6.1 surround or DTS-ES Matrix 6.1
mode. Check the surround effects of the various modes before selecting the surround mode.
These two types of sources thus have different properties, and different speaker settings, particularly for the
surround speakers, are required in order to achieve the ideal sound.

(3) When using different surround speakers for movies and music
To achieve more effective surround sound for both movies and music, use different sets of surround
speakers and different surround modes for the two types of sources.

subwoofer within the listening room.
• If the surround speakers are direct-radiating (monopolar) then place them
slightly behind and at an angle to the listening position and parallel to the
walls at a position 60 to 90 centimeters (2 to 3 feet) above ear level at the
prime listening position.
• When using two surround back speakers, place them at the back facing the
front at a narrower distance than the front left and right speakers. When
using one surround back speaker, place it at the rear center facing the front
at a slightly higher position (0 to 20 cm) than the surround speakers.
• We recommend installing the surround back speaker(s) at a slightly
downward facing angle. This effectively prevents the surround back channel
signals from reflecting off the monitor or screen at the front center, resulting
in interference and making the sense of movement from the front to the
back less sharp.
• Connect the surround speakers to the surround speaker A jacks on the AVR3805 and set all settings on the setup menu to “A”. (This is the factory
default setting. For details, see page 22.)
(2) Setting for primarily watching movies using diffusion type speakers for the surround speakers
For the greatest sense of surround sound envelopment, diffuse radiation speakers such as bipolar
types, or dipolar types, provide a wider dispersion than is possible to obtain from a direct radiating
speaker (monopolar). Place these speakers at either side of the prime listening position, mounted above
ear level.

The AVR-3805 is equipped with a digital signal processing circuit that lets you play program sources in the
surround mode to achieve the same sense of presence as in a movie theater.
Dolby Surround
(1) Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is the multi-channel digital signal format developed by Dolby Laboratories.
Dolby Digital consists of up to “5.1” channels - front left, front right, center, surround left, surround right,
and an additional channel exclusively reserved for additional deep bass sound effects (the Low Frequency
Effects – LFE – channel, also called the “.1” channel, containing bass frequencies of up to 120 Hz).
Unlike the analog Dolby Pro Logic format, Dolby Digital’s main channels can all contain full range sound
information, from the lowest bass, up to the highest frequencies – 22 kHz. The signals within each channel
are distinct from the others, allowing pinpoint sound imaging, and Dolby Digital offers tremendous dynamic
range from the most powerful sound effects to the quietest, softest sounds, free from noise and distortion.

(2) Dolby Pro Logic IIx
• Dolby Pro Logic IIx furthers the matrix decoding technology of Dolby Pro Logic II to decode audio signals
recorded on two channels into up to 7.1 playback channels, including the surround back channel. Dolby
Pro Logic IIx also allows 5.1-channel sources to be played in up to 7.1 channels.
The mode can be selected according to the source. The Music mode is best suited for playing music, the
Cinema mode for playing movies, and the Game mode for playing games. The Game mode can only be
used with 2-channel audio sources.
(3) Dolby Pro Logic II
• Dolby Pro Logic II is a new multi-channel playback format developed by Dolby Laboratories using
feedback logic steering technology and offering improvements over conventional Dolby Pro Logic circuits.
• Dolby Pro Logic II can be used to decode not only sources recorded in Dolby Surround ( ) but also
regular stereo sources into five channels (front left, front right, center, surround left and surround right) to
achieve surround sound.
• Whereas with conventional Dolby Pro Logic the surround channel playback frequency band was limited,
Dolby Pro Logic II offers a wider band range (20 Hz to 20 kHz or greater). In addition, the surround
channels were monaural (the surround left and right channels were the same) with previous Dolby Pro
Logic, but Dolby Pro Logic II they are played as stereo signals.
• Various parameters can be set according to the type of source and the contents, so it is possible to
achieve optimum decoding (see page 42).

ENGLISH
DTS-ES Extended Surround TM
DTS Digital Surround
Digital Theater Surround (also called simply DTS) is a multi-channel digital signal format developed by Digital
Theater Systems.
DTS offers the same “5.1” playback channels as Dolby Digital (front left, front right and center, surround left and
surround right) as well as the stereo 2-channel mode. The signals for the different channels are fully independent,
eliminating the risk of deterioration of sound quality due to interference between signals, crosstalk, etc.
DTS features a relatively higher bit rate as compared to Dolby Digital (1234 kbps for CDs and LDs, 1536 kbps for
DVDs) so it operates with a relatively low compression rate. Because of this the amount of data is great, and
when DTS playback is used in movie theaters, a separate CD-ROM synchronized with the film is played.
With LDs and DVDs, there is of course no need for an extra disc; the pictures and sound can be recorded
simultaneously on the same disc, so the discs can be handled in the same way as discs with other formats.
There are also music CDs recorded in DTS. These CDs include 5.1-channel surround signals (compared to two
channels on current CDs). They do not include picture data, but they offer surround playback on CD players that
are equipped with digital outputs (PCM type digital output required).
DTS surround track playback offers the same intricate, grand sound as in a movie theater, right in your own
listening room.

DTS-ESTM Discrete 6.1
DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 is the newest recording format. With it, all 6.1 channels (including the SB channel) are
recorded independently using a digital discrete system. The main feature of this format is that because the
SL, SR and SB channels are fully independent, the sound can be designed with total freedom and it is
possible to achieve a sense that the acoustic images are moving about freely among the background sounds
surrounding the listener from 360 degrees.
Though maximum performance is achieved when sound tracks recorded with this system are played using
a DTS-ES decoder, when played with a conventional DTS decoder the SB channel signals are automatically
down-mixed to the SL and SR channels, so none of the signal components are lost.
2
DTS-ESTM Matrix 6.1
With this format, the additional SB channel signals undergo matrix encoding and are input to the SL and SR
channels beforehand. Upon playback they are decoded to the SL, SR and SB channels. The performance of
the encoder used at the time of recording can be fully matched using a high precision digital matrix decoder
developed by DTS, thereby achieving surround sound more faithful to the producer’s sound design aims than
with conventional 5.1- or 6.1-channel systems.
In addition, the bit stream format is 100% compatible with conventional DTS signals, so the effect of the
Matrix 6.1 format can be achieved even with 5.1-channel signal sources. Of course it is also possible to play
DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 encoded sources with a DTS 5.1-channel decoder.

1 DTS signals are recorded in the same way on CDs and LDs as PCM signals. Because of this, the undecoded DTS signals are output as random “hissy” noise from the CD or LD player’s analog outputs. If
this noise is played with the amplifier set at a very high volume, it may possibly cause damage to the
speakers. To avoid this, be sure to switch the input mode to “AUTO” or “DTS” before playing CDs or LDs
recorded in DTS. Also, never switch the input mode to “ANALOG” or “PCM” during playback. The same
holds true when playing CDs or LDs on a DVD player or LD/DVD compatible player. For DVDs, the DTS
signals are recorded in a special way so this problem does not occur.
2 The signals provided at the digital outputs of a CD or LD player may undergo some sort of internal signal
processing (output level adjustment, sampling frequency conversion, etc.). In this case the DTS-encoded
signals may be processed erroneously, in which case they cannot be decoded by the AVR-3805, or may
only produce noise. Before playing DTS signals for the first time, turn down the master volume to a low
level, start playing the DTS disc, then check whether the DTS indicator on the AVR-3805 (see page 37)
lights before turning up the master volume.
3 A DVD player with DTS-compatible digital output is required to play DTS DVDs. A DTS Digital Output logo
is featured on the front panel of compatible DVD players. Recent DENON DVD player models feature DTScompatible digital output – consult the player’s owner’s manual for information on configuring the digital
output for DTS playback of DTS-encoded DVDs.

DTS-ES Extended Surround is a new multi-channel digital signal format developed by Digital Theater Systems
Inc. While offering high compatibility with the conventional DTS Digital Surround format, DTS-ES Extended
Surround greatly improves the 360-degree surround impression and space expression thanks to further expanded
surround signals. This format has been used professionally in movie theaters since 1999.
In addition to the 5.1 surround channels (FL, FR, C, SL, SR and LFE), DTS-ES Extended Surround also offers the
SB (Surround Back, sometimes also referred to as “surround center”) channel for surround playback with a total
of 6.1 channels. DTS-ES Extended Surround includes two signal formats with different surround signal recording
methods, as described below.
When DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 or Matrix 6.1 encoded sources are decoded with a DTS-ES decoder, the format is
automatically detected upon decoding and the optimum playing mode is selected. However, some Matrix 6.1
sources may be detected as having a 5.1-channel format, so the DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 mode must be set manually
to play these sources.
(For instructions on selecting the surround mode, see page 44.)
The DTS-ES decoder includes another function, the DTS Neo:6 surround mode for 6.1-channel playback of digital
PCM and analog signal sources.
2
DTS Neo:6 TM surround
This mode applies conventional 2-channel signals to the high precision digital matrix decoder used for DTSES Matrix 6.1 to achieve 6.1-channel surround playback. High precision input signal detection and matrix
processing enable full band reproduction (frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz or greater) for all 6.1
channels, and separation between the different channels is improved to the same level as that of a digital
discrete system.
DTS Neo:6 surround includes two modes for selecting the optimum decoding for the signal source.
• DTS Neo:6 Cinema
This mode is optimum for playing movies. Decoding is performed with emphasis on separation
performance to achieve the same atmosphere with 2-channel sources as with 6.1-channel sources.
This mode is effective for playing sources recorded in conventional surround formats as well, because the
in-phase component is assigned mainly to the center channel (C) and the reversed phase component to
the surround (SL, SR and SB channels).
• DTS Neo:6 Music
This mode is suited mainly for playing music. Changes in the sound quality are reduced by decoding with
emphasis on the front channel signals (FL and FR), and a natural sense of expansion is given to the sound
field by the effect of the surround signals output from the center (C) and surround (SL, SR and SB)
channels.
ENGLISH
DTS 96/24
The sampling frequency, number of bits and number of channels used for recording of music, etc., in studios has
been increasing in recent years, and there are a growing number of high quality signal sources, including 96
kHz/24 bit 5.1-channel sources.
For example, there are high picture/sound quality DVD video sources with 96 kHz/24 bit stereo PCM audio tracks.
However, because the data rate for these audio tracks is extremely high, there are limits to recording them on
two channels only, and since the quality of the pictures must be restricted it is common to only include still
pictures.
In addition, 96 kHz/24 bit 5.1-channel surround is possible with DVD audio sources, but DVD audio players are
required to play them with this high quality.
DTS 96/24 is a multi-channel digital signal format developed by Digital Theater Systems Inc. in order to deal with
this situation.
Conventional surround formats used sampling frequencies of 48 or 44.1 kHz, so 20 kHz was about the maximum
playback signal frequency. With DTS 96/24, the sampling frequency is increased to 96 or 88.2 kHz to achieve a
wide frequency range of over 40 kHz.
In addition, DTS 96/24 has a resolution of 24 bits, resulting in the same frequency band and dynamic range as 96
kHz/24 bit PCM.
As with conventional DTS Surround, DTS 96/24 is compatible with a maximum of 5.1 channels, so sources
recorded using DTS 96/24 can be played in high sampling frequency, multiple channel audio with such normal
media as DVD videos and CDs.
Thus, with DTS 96/24, the same 96 kHz/24 bit multi-channel surround sound as with DVD-Audio can be achieved
while viewing DVD-Video images on a conventional DVD-Video player ( 1). Furthermore, with DTS 96/24
compatible CDs, 88.2 kHz/24 bit multi-channel surround can be achieved using normal CD/LD players ( 1).
Even with the high quality multi-channel signals, the recording time is the same as with conventional DTS
surround sources.
What’s more, DTS 96/24 is fully compatible with the conventional DTS surround format, so DTS 96/24 signal
sources can be played with a sampling frequency of 48 kHz or 44.1 kHz on conventional DTS or DTS-ES surround
decoders ( 2).
1 A DVD player with DTS digital output capabilities (for CD/LD players, a player with digital outputs for
conventional DTS CDs/LDs) and a disc recorded in DTS 96/24 are required.
2 The resolution is 24 or 20 bits, depending on the decoder.
HDCD® (High Definition Compatible Digital®)
HDCD is an encoding/decoding technology that greatly reduces the distortion that occurs upon digital recording
while maintaining compatibility with the conventional CD format, thus expanding the dynamic range and
achieving a high resolution.
Conventional CDs and HDCD compatible CDs are identified automatically to select the optimum digital
processing.

High-grade LPCM 24-bit, 96-kHz, 6-channel or 24-bit, 192-kHz, 2-channel digital input is possible when the AVR3805 is connected via a shielded twisted pair (STP) cable to a DENON DVD player that supports DENON Digital
Link, Since DENON Digital Link uses low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS), transfer capabilities of greater than
1.2 Gbps at a differential voltage of approximately 0.3Vpp are possible.
