Features
VSX-2014i-G model only:
• High quality MOSFET design
This receiver offers high-quality discrete MOSFET
configuration unique to Pioneer for low distortion, and
generates equal amplifier power to all channels,
eliminating the possibility of one channel dominating a
particular sound field.
• i.LINK digital interface
The i.LINK interface makes it possible to connect this
receiver to i.LINK-equipped components, allowing you to
enjoy high sampling rate (up to 192kHz) PCM
multichannel digital audio from DVD-Audio and SACD
discs, as well as digital audio from DVD-Video, CD and
Video CD discs, all with a single cable.
• Easy setup using Multichannel Acoustic
Calibration (MCACC)
Setting up for home theater sound is as easy as
connecting your speakers, a DVD player or other source,
and your TV. The Auto Surround Setup provides a quick
but accurate surround sound setup, while for complete
surround sound control you still have access to the full
range of surround sound settings.
• THX Select certified design
This receiver bears the THX Select logo, which means it
has passed a rigorous series of quality and performance
tests covering every aspect of the product. This includes
testing of pre-amplifier and power amplifier performance
and operation, and hundreds of other parameters in both
the digital and analog domain, making your home
theater experience as faithful as possible to what the
director intended.

Introduction to home theater
You are probably used to using stereo equipment to listen to music, but may not be used to home theater systems that
give you many more options (such as surround sound) when listening to soundtracks.
Home theater refers to the use of multiple audio tracks to create a surround sound effect, making you feel like you're
in the middle of the action or concert. The surround sound you get from a home theater system depends not only on
the speakers you have set up in your room, but also on the source and the sound settings of the receiver.
DVD-Video has become the basic source material for home theater due to its size, quality, and ease of use. Depending
on the DVD, you can have up to seven different audio tracks coming from one disc, all of them being sent to different
speakers in your system. This is what creates a surround sound effect and gives you the feeling of ‘being there’.
This receiver will automatically decode Dolby Digital, DTS, or Dolby Surround DVD-Video discs, according to your
speaker setup. In most cases, you won’t have to make changes for realistic surround sound, but other possibilities (like
listening to a CD with multichannel surround sound) are explained in Listening to your system on page 30.
Listening to Surround Sound
This receiver was designed with the easiest possible setup in mind, so with the following quick setup guide, you should
have your system hooked up for surround sound in no time at all. In most cases, you can simply leave the receiver in
the default settings. Note that the illustrations below show the VSX-2014i-G however, connections for the VSX-1014-S are
the same.
Important
• Before making or changing any connections, switch off the power and disconnect the power cord from the AC outlet.
1 Hook up your DVD player.
For surround sound, you’ll want to hook up using a digital connection from the DVD player to the receiver. You can do
this with either a coaxial (recommended), or an optical connection (you don’t need to connect both). If you hook up
using an optical cable, you should refer to The Input Assign menu on page 63 to assign the optical input to DVD.
Use a video cord to connect the video output on your DVD player to the receiver using the jacks shown below.
2 Hook up your TV.
Use a video cord to connect your receiver to the TV using the jacks as shown below.

3 Connect your speakers.
A complete setup of eight speakers (including the subwoofer) is shown here but everyone’s home setup will vary.
Simply connect the speakers you have in the manner shown below. The receiver will work with just two stereo speakers
(the front speakers in the diagram) but using at least three speakers is recommended, and a complete setup is best.
Make sure you connect the speaker on the right to the right terminal and the speaker on the left to the left terminal.
Also make sure the positive and negative (+/–) terminals on the receiver match those on the speakers. You can use
speakers with a nominal impedance between 6–16Ω (please see Switching the speaker impedance on page 76 if you
plan to use speakers with an impedance of less than 8Ω).
• If you only have one surround back speaker, hook it up to the surround back left ( Single) terminal.

Automatically setting up for
surround sound (MCACC)
The Auto MCACC Setup measures the acoustic
characteristics of your listening area, taking into account
ambient noise, speaker size and distance, and tests for
both channel delay and channel level. After you have set
up the microphone provided with your system, the
receiver uses the information from a series of test tones
to optimize the speaker settings and equalization for your
particular room.
Make sure you do this before moving on to Playing a
source on page 13.
Important
• Make sure the microphone and speakers are not
moved during the Auto MCACC Setup.
• Using the Auto MCACC Setup will overwrite any
existing speaker settings in the receiver.
• Before using the Auto MCACC Setup the
headphones should be disconnected and MULTI CH
IN switched off.
• The receiver will automatically exit the current screen
after three minutes of inactivity.
Caution
• The test tones used in the Auto MCACC Setup are
output at high volume.

Press RETURN after you have finished checking each
screen. When you’re finished, select Skip to go back to
the System Setup menu.
Note
• If you leave an error message on the screen for over
three minutes, or if you cancel the Auto MCACC
Setup at any time, the receiver automatically exits
and no settings will be made.
• Depending on the characteristics of your room,
sometimes identical speakers with cone sizes of
around 12cm will end up with different size settings.
You can correct the setting manually using the
Manual speaker setup on page 43.
• The subwoofer distance setting may be farther than
the actual distance from the listening position. This
setting should be accurate (taking delay and room
characteristics into account) and generally does not
need to be changed.
• Remember to disconnect the microphone after
you’ve finished the Auto MCACC Setup.
Other problems when using the Auto MCACC
Setup
If the room environment is not optimal for the Auto
MCACC Setup (too much background noise, echo off the
walls, obstacles blocking the speakers from the
microphone) the final settings may be incorrect. Check
for household appliances (air conditioner, fridge, fan,
etc.), that may be affecting the environment and switch
them off if necessary. If there are any instructions
showing in the front panel display, please follow them.
• Some older TVs may interfere with the operation of
the microphone. If this seems to be happening,
switch off the TV when doing the Auto MCACC Setup.
Checking the settings on your DVD
(or other) player
Before continuing, you may want to check the digital
audio output settings on your DVD player and digital
satellite receiver.
• Check that your DVD player/satellite receiver is
set to output Dolby Digital, DTS and 88.2/96kHz PCM
(2 channel) audio.
If there is an option for MPEG audio, set this to convert
the MPEG audio to PCM.
If you connected the multichannel analog outputs of the
player to this receiver, make sure that the player is set to
output multichannel analog audio.
02
Note
• Depending on your DVD player or source discs, you
may only get digital 2 channel stereo and analog
sound. In this case, the receiver must be set to a
multichannel listening mode (see Listening in
surround sound on page 30 if you need to do this) if
you want multichannel surround sound.
Playing a source
Here are the basic instructions for playing a source (such
as a DVD disc) with your home theater system.
1 Turn on the power of the playback component
(for example a DVD player), your TV and subwoofer
(if you have one).
• If your source is the TV’s built-in tuner, then switch to
the channel you want to watch, otherwise make sure
that the TV’s video input is set to this receiver. (For
example, if you connected this receiver to the VIDEO
1 jacks on your TV, make sure that the VIDEO 1 input
is now selected.)
2 If the receiver isn’t already on, press RECEIVER
to switch it on.
3 Change the receiver input to the source you
want to play.
You can use the front panel input select buttons or the
dedicated MULTI CONTROL buttons on the remote
control.
4 Press AUTO SURR (remote control) and start
playback of the DVD (or other component).
If you’re playing a Dolby Digital or DTS surround sound
DVD disc, you should hear surround sound. If you are
playing a stereo source, you will only hear sound from the
front left/right speakers in the default listening mode.
• See also Listening to your system on page 30 for
more information on different ways of listening to
sources.
5 Use the volume control (front panel or remote)
to adjust the volume level.
• Turn down the volume of your TV so that all the sound
is coming from the speakers connected to this
receiver.
• 0dB is the volume level of a regular movie theater.
Adjust the volume to your liking between –80dB
(min) and +12dB (max).
Note
• If you need to manually switch the input signal type
from digital to analog (stereo or multichannel), press
SIGNAL SELECT (page 33).
• For more detailed surround sound setup, see The
System Setup menu on page 38.

Video cables
Important
• Before making or changing any connections, switch
off the power and disconnect the power cord from the
AC outlet.
About cable types
Standard RCA video cables
These cables are the most common type of video
connection and should be used to connect to the
composite video terminals. They have yellow plugs to
distinguish them from cables for audio.
Analog audio cables
Use stereo RCA phono cables to connect analog audio
components. These cables are typically red and white,
and you should connect the red plugs to R (right)
terminals and white plugs to L (left) terminals.
Analog audio cables
Standard RCA video cable
S-video cables
S-video cables give you clearer picture reproduction than
standard RCA video cables by sending separate signals
for the luminance and color.
Right (red)
Left (white)
S Video
Digital audio cables
Commercially available coaxial digital audio cables or
optical cables should be used to connect digital
components to this receiver.
Component video cables
Use component video cables to get the best possible
color reproduction of your video source. The color signal
of the TV is divided into the luminance (Y) signal and the
color (PB and PR) signals and then output. In this way,
interference between the signals is avoided.
Component video cables
Coaxial digital audio cable
Optical cable
• When connecting optical cables, be careful when
inserting the plug not to damage the shutter
protecting the optical socket.
• When storing optical cable, coil loosely. The cable
may be damaged if bent around sharp corners.
• You can also use a standard RCA video cable for
coaxial digital connections.

When making cable connections
About the video converter
Be careful not to arrange cables in a manner that bends
the cables over the top or around this unit. If the cables
are laid on top of the unit, the magnetic field produced by
the transformers in this unit may cause a humming noise
to come from the speakers.
VSX-2014i-G model only
The video converter allows you to connect various video
sources using composite, S-video or component video
connections and the signal will be output through all of
the MONITOR OUT jacks (excluding multi-room). The
only exception is component video input, which is only
output from the component video output. Therefore, if
you want to connect any source using component video,
you must also connect your TV using component video. If
several video components are connected to the same
input function, the converter gives priority to component,
S-video, then composite (in that order).
The following chart shows when the video signal will be
converted from the various video inputs (left column) for
output to the MONITOR OUT jacks (top row):

Connecting digital audio components
The easiest way to hook up this receiver for surround sound (Dolby Digital and DTS sources) is to use a digital input.
You can do this by either coaxial or optical connections (you do not need to do both). The quality of these two types of
connections is the same but since some digital components only have one type of digital terminal, it is a matter of
matching like with like (for example, the coaxial output from the component to coaxial input on the receiver). This
receiver has four digital inputs (two coaxial inputs and two optical inputs) on the rear panel. Connect your digital
components as shown below.
There is one digital output jack which is marked DIGITAL OUT. If you connect this to the optical input on a digital
recorder (for example an MD, DAT or CD-R) you can make direct digital recordings with this unit.
When connecting your equipment, always make sure the power is turned off and the power cord is disconnected from
the AC outlet.

Connecting analog audio components
To begin set up, connect your analog audio components (such as a cassette deck) to the jacks. For components you
want to record with, you need to hook up four plugs to the receiver (a set of stereo inputs and a set of stereo outputs),
but for components that only play, you only need to hook up one set of stereo plugs. You must also hook up your digital
components to analog audio jacks if you want to record to/from digital components (like an MD) to/from analog
components. See page 16 for more on digital connections.
When connecting your equipment, always make sure the power is turned off and the power cord is disconnected from
the AC outlet.

Tip
• If you don’t plan on using the spare audio jacks for video components (for example, VIDEO1), you can use these
for connecting another audio component, like a line-level turntable.
Connecting multichannel analog components
If you prefer to use a separate component for decoding multichannel formats such as DVD Audio and SACD, you can
connect a decoder or a DVD player with multichannel analog outputs to the multichannel inputs of this receiver. Note
that the multichannel input can only be used when MULTI CH IN is selected (see page 37).
When connecting your equipment, always make sure the power is turned off and the power cord is disconnected from
the AC outlet.

Connecting video components
Connect your video components to the jacks as shown below. With digital video components (like a DVD player), you
must use the connections shown on this page for the video signal, but in order to hear a digital source (like a DVD)
you should hook up the audio to a digital input (see page 16). It is also a good idea to hook up your digital components
with analog audio connections (see page 17).
For better quality video, you can hook up using the component video jacks or the S-video jacks (quality descends in
this order) on the rear of the receiver instead of the regular video jacks. (With the VSX-2014i-G, you can connect video
components and your TV using different types of video cables. See About the video converter on page 15.)
When connecting your equipment, always make sure the power is turned off and the power cord is disconnected from
the AC outlet.

Connecting the speakers
A complete setup of eight speakers (including the subwoofer) is shown below, but everyone’s home setup will vary.
Simply connect the speakers you have in the manner shown below. The receiver will work with just two stereo speakers
(the front speakers in the diagram) but using at least three speakers is recommended, and a complete setup is best
for surround sound. If you’re not using a subwoofer, change the front speaker setting (see Speaker Setting on page 44)
to large.
Make sure you connect the speaker on the right to the right terminal and the speaker on the left to the left terminal.
Also make sure the positive and negative (+/–) terminals on the receiver match those on the speakers.
• You can use speakers with a nominal impedance between 6–16 Ω (please see Switching the speaker impedance on
page 76 if you plan to use speakers with an impedance of less than 8Ω).
Be sure to complete all connections before connecting this unit to the AC power source.

Caution
• These speaker terminals carry HAZARDOUS LIVE
voltage. To prevent the risk of electric shock when
connecting or disconnecting the speaker cables,
disconnect the power cord before touching any
uninsulated parts.
• Make sure no bare speaker wire is touching the back
panel when the unit is switched on. The power may
cut off as a safety measure.
Note
• If you only have one surround back speaker, hook it
up to the surround back left (Single) terminal.
• If you are planning on bi-amping your front speakers,
or setting up a separate speaker system in another
room, read through Surround back speaker setting on
page 38 and make sure to connect your speakers as
necessary (these connections are explained in Other
connections on page 55).
• If you are using a THX certified subwoofer use the
THX INPUT jack on the subwoofer (if your subwoofer
has one) or switch the filter position to THX on your
subwoofer.

Hints on speaker placement
Speakers are usually designed with a particular
placement in mind. Some are designed to be
floorstanding, while others should be placed on stands to
sound their best. Some should be placed near a wall;
others should be placed away from walls. We have
provided a few tips on getting the best sound from your
speakers (following), but you should also follow the
guidelines on placement that the speaker manufacturer
provided with your particular speakers to get the most
out of them.

Right
Center
Subwoofer
Surround
Left

Right
Listening Position
• Place the front left and right speakers at equal
distances from the TV.
• When placing speakers near the TV, we recommend
using magnetically shielded speakers to prevent
possible interference, such as discoloration of the
picture when the TV is switched on. If you do not have
magnetically shielded speakers and notice
discoloration of the TV picture, move the speakers
farther away from the TV.
• If you're using a center speaker, place the front
speakers at a wider angle. If not, place them at a
narrower angle.
• Place the center speaker above or below the TV so
that the sound of the center channel is localized at
the TV screen. Also, make sure the center speaker
does not cross the line formed by the leading edge of
the front left and right speakers.
• It is best to angle the speakers towards the listening
position. The angle depends on the size of the room.
Use less of an angle for bigger rooms.
• Surround and surround back speakers should be
positioned 60 cm–90 cm higher than your ears and
titled slight downward. Make sure the speakers don't
face each other. For DVD-Audio, the speakers should
be more directly behind the listener than for home
theater playback.

• Handle the power cord by the plug. Do not pull out
the plug by tugging the cord and never touch the
power cord when your hands are wet as this could
cause a short circuit or an electric shock. Do not
place the unit, a piece of furniture, etc., on the power
cord, or pinch the cord. Never make a knot in the cord
or tie it with other cords. The power cords should be
routed such that they are not likely to be stepped on.
A damaged power cord can cause a fire or give you
an electrical shock. Check the power cord once in a
while. When you find it damaged, ask your nearest
Pioneer authorized independent service company for
a replacement.
AC power cord
After you’ve finished making all connections, plug the
receiver into an AC outlet. The type of cord and the plug
converter which can be used depends on the power
voltage in each region or country. Please make sure you
use the correct cord and plug converter due to the
possibility of fire or other hazard if used incorrectly (see
below).

Operating other Pioneer components
Many Pioneer components have SR CONTROL jacks
which can be used to link components together so that
you can use just the remote sensor of one component.
When you use a remote control, the control signal is
passed along the chain to the appropriate component.
Note that if you use this feature, make sure that you also
have at least one set of analog audio or video jacks
connected to another component for grounding
purposes.

Listening in surround sound
Important
• VSX-2014i-G model only – The listening modes and
many of the features described in this section are not
available when playing SACD or DVD-Audio discs
using the i.LINK connection.
Using this receiver, you can listen to any source in
surround sound. However, the options available will
depend on your speaker setup and the type of source
you’re listening to.
If you connected surround back speakers, see also Using
the surround back channel (Extended mode) on page 34.
Tip
• The listening modes described below can also be
selected using the front panel controls. Simply press
LISTENING MODE SELECT repeatedly to access the
modes you want, then use the MULTI JOG to select a
particular listening mode (after five seconds the
mode is automatically set).
Auto playback
There are many ways to listen back to sources using this
receiver, but for the simplest, most direct listening option
is the Auto Surround feature. With this, the receiver
automatically detects what kind of source you’re playing
and selects multichannel or stereo playback as
necessary.

• ADVANCED MOVIE – Simulates the relaxed
environment of a movie theater, and is suitable for
watching movies.
• ADVANCED MUSIC – Simulates the acoustic
environment of a large concert hall and is suitable for

sound for both mono and stereo TV sources. It is
useful for older movies recorded with mono
soundtracks.
• SPORTS – This is designed for sports programs with
a lot of action, adding to the excitement by bringing
background action to the forefront.
• GAME – Useful when playing video games. It works
especially well with sound moving from left to right in
game software with a lot of movement.
• EXPANDED – This mode is especially designed to
give sound depth to stereo sources, and lets you hear
two-channel (stereo) signals as simulated
multichannel surround sound. Use with Dolby Pro
Logic for a stereo surround effect. You can also use
with Dolby Digital sources for a wider stereo field
than the Standard modes.
• 7ch STEREO – This can be selected to give
multichannel sound to a stereo source, using all of
the speakers in your setup.
• PhonesSurround – When listening through
headphones, you can still get the effect of overall
surround.
Note
• Depending on the source and the sound mode you
have selected, you may not get sound from the

Acoustic Calibration EQ
Acoustic Calibration Equalization is a kind of room
equalizer for your speakers (excluding the subwoofer). It
works by measuring the acoustic characteristics of your
room and neutralizing the ambient characteristics that
can color the original source material. This provides a
‘flat’ equalization setting. If you’re not satisfied with the
automatic adjustment, you can also adjust these settings
manually to get a frequency balance that suits your
tastes.
Setting the Acoustic Calibration EQ automatically
If you have already completed Automatically setting up for
surround sound (MCACC) on page 11, ALL CH ADJUST
and FRONT ALIGN (below) should already be set.
Therefore, if you want to adjust your settings manually,
you can skip to Setting the Acoustic Calibration EQ
manually below.
1 Select ‘EQ AUTO Setting’ from the Manual
MCACC setup menu.
3.MANUAL MCACC
]
]
As the receiver outputs test tones, the frequency balance
is adjusted automatically for the following settings:
• ALL CH ADJUST – A ‘flat’ setting where all the
speakers are set individually so no special weighting
is given to any one channel.
• FRONT ALIGN – All speakers are set in accordance
with the front speaker settings (no equalization is
applied to the front left and right channels).
You will return to the Acoustic Cal EQ setup menu after
the Acoustic Calibration Equalization is set.
Copying your Acoustic Calibration EQ settings
If you want to manually adjust the Acoustic Calibration
EQ (see Setting the Acoustic Calibration EQ manually
below), we recommend copying the ALL CH ADJUST or
the FRONT ALIGN settings from the EQ AUTO setup
above (or from Automatically setting up for surround
sound (MCACC) on page 11) to one of the custom
settings. Instead of just a flat EQ curve, this will give you
a reference point from which to start.

Tip
• If you have a subwoofer and like lots of bass, it may
seem logical to select LARGE for your front speakers
and PLUS for the subwoofer. This may not, however,
yield the best bass results. Depending on the speaker
placement of your room you may actually experience
a decrease in the amount of bass due low frequency
cancellations. In this case, try changing the position
or direction of speakers. If you can’t get good results,
listen to the bass response with it set to PLUS and
YES or the front speakers set to LARGE and SMALL
alternatively and let your ears judge which sounds
best. If you’re having problems, the easiest option is
to route all the bass sounds to the subwoofer by
selecting SMALL for the front speakers.

If you often listen to a particular radio station, it's
convenient to have the receiver store the frequency for
easy recall whenever you want to listen to that station.
This saves the effort of manually tuning in each time. This

Chapter 8:
Making recordings
Making an audio or a video recording
You can make an audio or a video recording from the
built-in tuner, or from an audio or video source
connected to the receiver (such as a CD player or TV).
Keep in mind you can’t make a digital recording from an
analog source or vice-versa, so make sure the
components you are recording to/from are hooked up in
the same way (see Connecting up on page 14 for more on
connections).
If you want to record a video source, you also need to use
the same type of connection for the source as for the
recorder. For example, you can’t record a component
hooked up to S-video jacks with a recorder hooked up to
the composite video outputs (see page 18 for more on
video connections).

Chapter 9:
Controlling the rest of your system
Setting the remote to control other
components
Most components can be assigned to one of the MULTI
CONTROL buttons using the component’s manufacturer
preset code stored in the remote.
However, please note that there are cases where only
certain functions may be controllable after assigning the
proper preset code, or the codes for the manufacturer in
the remote control will not work for the model that you
are using.
If you can’t find a preset code that matches the
component you want to control, you can still teach the
remote individual commands from another remote
control (page 51).
Note
• TV codes (for example, codes for TV, CATV, Satellite
TV or DTV) can only be assigned to the TV/SAT or TV
CONT button.
• If you assign the TUNER function to another
component, you will have to reassign it to the Pioneer
preset code to use this receiver’s built-in tuner.
• You can cancel or exit any of the steps by pressing
RECEIVER. To go back a step, press RETURN.
• After one minute of inactivity, the remote
automatically exits the operation.

Other connections
Caution
• Before making or changing the connections, switch off
the power and disconnect the power cord from the
power outlet. Plugging in components should be the
last connection you make with your system.
• Be careful not to allow any contact between speaker
wires from different terminals.
• You can use speakers with a nominal impedance
between 6–16Ω (please see Switching the speaker
impedance on page 76 if you plan to use speakers
with an impedance of less than 8Ω).
Second Zone speaker B setup
After selecting Second Zone in Surround back speaker
setting on page 38, you can use the speakers connected
to the (surround back) B speaker terminals on the rear
panel to listen to stereo playback in another room. See
Switching the speaker system below for the listening
options with this setup.
1 Connect a pair of speakers to the surround back
speaker terminals on the rear panel.
Connect them the same way you connected your
speakers in Connecting the speakers on page 21. Make
sure to review Hints on speaker placement on page 22
when placing the speakers in another room.
2 Select ‘Second Zone’ from the ‘Surr Back System’
menu.
See Surround back speaker setting on page 38 to do this.
Note
• VSX-2014i-G model only – You can also use the multiroom feature to listen to stereo playback in another
room. See Multi-room listening on page 57 for more
on this.
Switching the speaker system
If you selected Second Zone in Surround back speaker
setting on page 38, three speaker system settings are
possible using the SPEAKERS button. If you selected
Normal (SB) or Front Bi-Amp, the button will simply
switch your main speaker system on or off. The options
below are for the Second Zone setting only.
• Use the SPEAKERS button on the front panel to
select a speaker system setting.
As mentioned above, if you have selected Normal (SB),
the button will simply switch your main speaker system
(A) on or off.

• SPAB – Sound is output from speaker system A (up
to 5 channels, depending on the source), the two
speakers in speaker system B, and the subwoofer.
The sound from speaker system B will be the same as
the sound from speaker system A (multichannel
sources will be downmixed to 2 channels).
• SP (off) – No sound is output from the speakers. The
same sound is output from the pre-out terminals
(including from your subwoofer, if connected) as
when selecting speaker system A (above).
Note
• The subwoofer output depends on the settings you
made in Manual speaker setup on page 43. However,
if SPB is selected above, no sound is heard from the
subwoofer (the LFE channel is not downmixed).
• Depending on the settings in Surround back speaker
setting on page 38 output from the surround back
pre-out terminals may change.

Bi-amping your front speakers
Bi-wiring your speakers
Bi-amping is when you connect the high frequency driver
and low frequency driver of your speakers to different
amplifiers (in this case, to both front and surround back
terminals) for better crossover performance. Your
speakers must be bi-ampable to do this (having separate
terminals for high and low) and the sound improvement
will depend on the kind of speakers you’re using.
The reasons for bi-wiring are basically the same as biamping, but additionally, interference effects within the
wire could be reduced, producing better sound. Again, to
do this your speakers must be bi-wireable (that is they
must have separate terminals for the high and low
frequencies). When bi-wiring, make sure you’ve selected
Normal (SB) or Second Zone in Surround back speaker
setting on page 38.
1 Connect your speakers as shown below.
This illustration below shows the connections for biamping your front left speaker. Hook up your front right
speaker in the same way.

SELECTABLE
Hi
Lo
Since both front and surround back speaker terminals
output the same audio, it doesn’t matter which set (front
or surround back) is powering which part (Hi or Low) of
the speaker.
• Make sure that the + / – connections are properly
inserted.
2 Select the ‘Front Bi-Amp’ setting from the ‘Surr
Back System’ menu.
See Surround back speaker setting on page 38 to specify
how you’re using the surround back speaker terminals.
Caution
• Most speakers with both Hi and Low terminals have
two metal plates that connect the Hi to the Low
terminals. These must be removed when you are biamping the speakers or you could severely damage
the amplifier. See your speaker manual for more
information.
• If your speakers have a removable crossover network,
make sure you do not remove it for bi-amping. Doing
so may damage your speakers.
56
En
Caution
• Make sure you use a parallel (not series, which are
fairly uncommon) connection when bi-wiring your
speakers.
• Don't connect different speakers from the same
terminal in this way.

Important
• Before making or changing the connections, switch
off the power and disconnect the power cord from the
AC outlet.
When used together with an optional IR receiver, this
receiver can power two independent systems in separate
rooms. Different sources can be playing in both rooms at
the same time or, depending on your needs, the same
source can also be used. The main and sub rooms have
independent power (the main room power can be off
while the sub room is on) and the sub room can be
controlled by this unit's remote control. You may need to
specify your volume setting and IR receiver type in Multi
Room Setup on page 67.

Using the i.LINK interface
VSX-2014i-G model only
If you have a component with an i.LINK connector, you
can connect it to this receiver using an i.LINK cable.
Since the i.LINK interface does not transmit video
signals, the video signal of i.LINK-connected components must be connected with other cables (see
Connecting video components on page 18 for more on
making video connections).
• When the multi-room feature is switched on, you can
also change the sub room input source with the front
panel MULTI JOG dial, even when the main unit is in
standby.
If you’ve already made video connections from the component, assign the i.LINK input to the function (DVD/LD, for
example) corresponding to the video inputs to which
you’ve connected (see Assigning the i.LINK inputs on
page 64).
• Remote operation may not be possible if direct light
from a strong fluorescent lamp is shining on the IR
receiver remote sensor window.
The two i.LINK connectors on the rear of your receiver are
4-pin connectors. Use a 4-pin, S400 i.LINK cable to
connect i.LINK-equipped components.
• The tuner cannot be tuned to more than one station
at a time. Therefore, changing the station in one
room also changes the station in the other room.
Please be careful not to change stations when
recording a radio broadcast.
• The volume levels of the main and sub rooms are
independent.
• When the MULTI ROOM OUT jacks are connected to
a sub room amplifier with a remote sensor and
Pioneer CONTROL terminals (page 23), both the IR
receiver and the amplifier may receive remote control
commands (making correct operation impossible)
during multi-room operation. In this case, place the
IR receiver and amplifier apart from each other, and
point the remote control directly at the IR receiver
during operation.
• If you don’t plan to use the multi-room feature for
awhile, turn off the power in both the sub and main
rooms. Make sure the MULTI-ROOM indicator goes
off.
• The sleep timer affects the sub room when the multiroom feature is on.
Caution
• If your i.LINK connector comes into contact with
metallic parts of the receiver other than the i.LINK
terminal, an electrical short may occur. Some cables
have metal parts that may touch the unit when
connected. Please take care to use a suitable i.LINK
cable only.
Important
• Please use 4-pin, S400 cables less than 3.5 meters
long. Although longer ones are available, they may
not work reliably.
• There may be cases where the PQLS/rate control
function and/or the i.LINK audio does not work properly even when connected to i.LINK-compatible
equipment.
• Do not connect/disconnect i.LINK cables or switch
on/off any components connected using i.LINK when
the receiver is on.
• Copy-protected 96kHz DVD-Video discs can be heard
through the i.LINK connection, but they will be downsampled to 48kHz.

i.LINK-equipped component
• The arrow on the cable connector body should be
lined up with the arrow to the right of the connector
on the receiver for correct alignment. The i.LINK
cable should be inserted straight into the connector
so that it snaps easily into place. If not connected
properly the receiver will not be able to recognize any
connected components. Note that the i.LINK cable is
fragile and can be broken easily if too much force is
used when connecting.
2 Assign the i.LINK component to the input you
want, then make any necessary output settings on
the component.
See Assigning the i.LINK inputs on page 64 to assign the
component to an input on this receiver. Follow the
operating instructions that came with the component to
make any necessary output settings.
• Unassigned i.LINK components can be selected with
the front panel i.LINK SELECT button or the INPUT
SELECT button on the remote control.
Note
• You can connect several components together using
i.LINK. See Creating an i.LINK network below.

i.LINK is a trademark name for IEEE1394, a high-speed
interface for digital audio, video and other data found on
personal computers, digital camcorders, and other kinds
of audio and audio/visual equipment. A single i.LINK
connector can both send and receive data at the same
time, so only one cable is required to connect components for two-way communication.

About i.LINK
About PQLS rate control
Pioneer's PQLS (Precision Quartz Lock System)
technology provides high-precision digital audio from
DVD-A, SACD and audio CD sources when you use the
i.LINK interface. A precision quartz controller in this
receiver eliminates distortion caused by timing errors
(jitter), giving you the best possible digital-to-analog
conversion from the digital source.
To take advantage of PQLS, you must have a player
compatible with rate-control, and it must be switched on
and connected to this receiver through the i.LINK
network.
Creating an i.LINK network
Using i.LINK it is possible to chain up to 17 components
together so that the digital audio and control signals
from each component is available to other components
in the network. With the addition of an i.LINK repeater,
it’s possible to connect up to 34 components.
i.LINK connectors come in 4-pin and 6-pin configurations. This player uses the 4-pin connection, but the two
types can be mixed on a network.
This receiver is compatible with i.LINK Audio (A&M
protocol) components, such as DVD players. Note that
when connected to i.LINK MPEG-II TS equipment (such
as a digital satellite tuner), i.LINK DV equipment (such as
a DVD recorder or DV camcorder), or an i.LINK-equipped
personal computer, audio and video signals are not
transmitted, and connecting to these devices sometimes
causes network interruptions. Check the operating
instructions supplied with your other i.LINK components
for compatibility information.
This receiver is DTCP (Digital Transmission Content
Protection) compliant, so you can play DVD-A, DVDVideo, and SACD i.LINK audio.

When setting up an i.LINK network, it’s important that
the components form an open ended chain (fig. 1), or a
tree (fig. 2).

The system will not work if the connected components
form a loop. If a loop is detected, the message LOOP
CONNECT shows in the display. Figs. 3 and 4 show
connections that form a loop.

fig. 4
i.LINK cable
i.LINK cable
Another consideration when connecting i.LINK devices
is the speed of the interface. At present there are three
speeds; S100 (slowest), S200 and S400 (fastest). This
receiver uses the S400 type. Although you can use
components with different speeds together, we
recommend connecting slower-speed components at
the edge of the network if possible (shown by the shaded
boxes in figs. 1 and 2). This will keep the network free of
bottlenecks.
When used within an i.LINK network, this receiver must
be on for the i.LINK connection to be maintained. Other
components in the network may or may not maintain the
connection in standby (none will when the power is
completely off)—check the operating instructions
supplied with individual components. Note that the audio
may be momentarily interrupted if a component in the
i.LINK network is switched on/off, or its i.LINK
connection is switched on/off.
This product complies with the following i.LINK interface
specifications:
1) IEEE Std. 1394a-2000, Standard for a High Performance
Serial Bus
2) Audio and Music Data Transmission Protocol 2.0
Following the standard for AM824 sequence adaptation
layers, the product is compatible with IEC60958 bitstream,
DVD-A and SACD.
You can connect components in your system (such as a
screen or projector) to this receiver so that they switch on
or off using a 12 volt trigger when you select an input
function. However, you must specify which input
functions switch on the trigger using the System Setup
menu (see 12 Volt Trigger Setup on page 68 to do this).
Note that this will only work with components that have a
standby mode.
• Connect the 12V TRIGGER jack of this receiver to
the 12V TRIGGER of another component.
Use a cable with a mono mini-plug on each end for the
connection.
• The trigger maximum power is DC OUT 12V/100mA.
After you’ve specified the input functions that will switch
on the trigger, you’ll be able to switch the component on
or off just by pressing the input function(s) you’ve set on
page 68.
Using this receiver with a Pioneer
plasma display
If you have a Pioneer plasma display, you can use an
SR+ cable (see note below) to connect it to this unit and
take advantage of various convenient features, such as
automatic video input switching of the plasma display
when the input is changed.

Surround sound formats
Below is a brief description of the main surround sound
formats you’ll find on DVDs, satellite, cable and
terrestrial broadcasts, and video cassettes.
Dolby
The Dolby technologies are explained below. See
www.dolby.com for more detailed information.
12
Dolby Surround is an encoding system which embeds
surround sound information within a stereo soundtrack,
which a Dolby Pro Logic decoder can then use for
enhanced surround listening with greater sound detail.
Manufactured under license from Dolby Laboratories.
“Dolby”, “Pro Logic”, “Surround EX” and the double-D
symbol are trademarks of Dolby Laboratories.
DTS
The DTS technologies are explained below. See
www.dtstech.com for more detailed information.
Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is a multichannel digital audio coding
system widely used in cinemas, and in the home for DVD
and digital broadcast soundtracks. It can deliver up to six
discrete audio channels, comprising five full range
channels and a special LFE (low frequency effects)
channel used mainly for deep, rumbling sound effects;
hence the term “5.1-channel” Dolby Digital.
In addition to the format features above, Dolby Digital
decoders offer downmixing for compatibility with mono,
stereo and Dolby Pro Logic audio from a number of bit
rates and channels. Another feature, called Dialog
Normalization, attenuates programs based on the
average level of dialog in a program relative to its peak
level (also known as Dialnorm) in order to achieve
uniform playback level.
Dolby Digital Surround EX
Dolby Digital Surround EX (the EX stands for EXtended)
is an extension of Dolby Digital encoding whereby a
surround back channel is matrixed into the surround left/
right channels for 6.1 channel playback. This allows for
compatibility with Dolby Digital 5.1 channel decoding, as
well as for decoding using Dolby Digital EX.
Dolby Pro Logic IIx and Dolby Surround
Dolby Pro Logic IIx is an improved version of the Dolby
Pro Logic II (and Dolby Pro Logic) decoding system. Using
the innovative “steering logic” circuit, this system
extracts surround sound from sources as follows:
• Dolby Pro Logic – 4.1 channel sound (mono
surround) from any stereo source
• Dolby Pro Logic II – 5.1 channel sound (stereo
surround) from any stereo source
• Dolby Pro Logic IIx – 6.1 or 7.1 channel sound
(stereo surround and surround back) from two
channel or 5.1(and 6.1) channel sources
With two channel sources, the “.1” subwoofer channel is
generated by bass management in the receiver.
DTS Digital Surround
DTS Digital Surround is a 5.1-channel audio coding
system from Digital Theater Systems Inc. now widely
used for DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, 5.1 music discs, digital
broadcasts, and video games. It can deliver up to six
discrete audio channels, comprising five full range
channels, including an LFE channel. Higher sound
quality is achieved through the use of a low compression
rate, and high rates of transmittance during playback.
DTS-ES
DTS-ES (the ES stands for Extended Surround) is a
decoder that is capable of decoding both DTS-ES
Discrete 6.1 and DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 encoded sources.
DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 gives ‘true’ 6.1 channel sound, with
a completely separate (discrete) surround back channel.
DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 has a surround back channel matrixed
into the surround left/right channels. Both sources are
also compatible with a conventional DTS 5.1 channel
decoder.
DTS Neo:6
DTS Neo:6 can generate 6.1 channel surround sound
from any matrixed stereo source (such as video or TV)
and from 5.1 channel sources. It uses both the channel
information already encoded into the source, as well as
its own processing to determine channel localization
(with two channel sources, the “.1” subwoofer channel is
generated by bass management in the receiver). Two
modes (Cinema and Music) are available using DTS
Neo:6 with two channel sources.
DTS 96/24
DTS 96/24 is an extension of the original DTS Digital
Surround which offers high quality 96 kHz / 24-bit audio
using a DTS 96/24 decoder. This format is also fully
backward compatible with all existing decoders. This
means that DVD players can play this software using a
conventional DTS 5.1 channel decoder.

About THX
The THX technologies are explained below. See
www.thx.com for more detailed information.
THX Cinema processing
THX is an exclusive set of standards and technologies
established by the world-renowned film production
company, Lucasfilm Ltd. THX grew from George Lucas'
personal desire to make your experience of the film
soundtrack, in both movie theatres and in your home
theatre, as faithful as possible to what the director
intended. Movie soundtracks are mixed in special movie
theatres called dubbing stages and are designed to be
played back in movie theatres with similar equipment
and conditions. This same soundtrack is then transferred
directly onto Laserdisc, VHS tape, DVD, etc., and is not
changed for playback in a small home theatre
environment. THX engineers developed patented
technologies to accurately translate the sound from the
movie theatre environment into the home, correcting the
tonal and spatial errors that occur. On this product, when
the THX indicator is on, THX features are automatically
added in Cinema modes (e.g. THX Cinema, THX
Surround EX).
Re-Equalization
The tonal balance of a film soundtrack will be excessively
bright and harsh when played back over audio
equipment in the home because film soundtracks were
designed to be played back in large movie theaters using
very different professional equipment. Re-Equalization
restores the correct tonal balance for watching a movie
soundtrack in a small home environment.
Timbre Matching
The human ear changes our perception of a sound
depending on the direction from which the sound is
coming. In a movie theatre, there is an array of surround
speakers so that the surround information is all around
you. In a home theatre, you use only two speakers located
to the side of your head. The Timbre Matching feature
filters the information going to the surround speakers so
that they more closely match the tonal characteristics of
the sound coming from the front speakers. This ensures
seamless panning between the front and surround
speakers.
Adaptive Decorrelation
In a movie theatre, a large number of surround speakers
help create an enveloping surround sound experience,
but in a home theatre there are usually only two speakers.
This can make the surround speakers sound like
headphones that lack spaciousness and envelopment.
78
En
The surround sounds will also collapse into the closest
speaker as you move away from the middle seating
position. Adaptive Decorrelation slightly changes one
surround channel's time and phase relationship with
respect to the other surround channel. This expands the
listening position and creates—with only two speakers—
the same spacious surround experience as in a movie
theatre.
THX Select
Before any home theatre component can be THX Select
certified, it must incorporate all the features above and
also pass a rigorous series of quality and performance
tests. Only then can a product feature the THX Select
logo, which is your guarantee that the Home Theatre
products you purchase will give you superb performance
for many years to come. THX Select requirements cover
every aspect of the product including pre-amplifier and
power amplifier performance and operation, and
hundreds of other parameters in both the digital and
analog domain.
THX Surround EX
THX Surround EX - Dolby Digital Surround EX is a joint
development of Dolby Laboratories and the THX Ltd. In a
movie theater, film soundtracks that have been encoded
with Dolby Digital Surround EX technology are able to
reproduce an extra channel which has been added
during the mixing of the program. This channel, called
Surround Back, places sounds behind the listener in
addition to the currently available front left, front center,
front right, surround right, surround left and subwoofer
channels. This additional channel provides the
opportunity for more detailed imaging behind the listener
and brings more depth, spacious ambience and sound
localization than ever before. Movies that were created
using the Dolby Digital Surround EX technology, when
released into the home consumer market may exhibit
wording to that effect on the packaging. A list of movies
created using this technology can be found on the Dolby
web site at www.dolby.com.
Only receiver and controller products bearing the THX
Surround EX logo, when in the THX Surround EX mode,
faithfully reproduce this new technology in the home.
This product may also engage the “THX Surround EX”
mode during the playback of 5.1 channel material that is
not Dolby Digital Surround EX encoded. In such case the
information delivered to the Surround Back channel will
be program dependent and may or may not be very
pleasing depending on the particular soundtrack and the
tastes of the individual listener.
