PROFILE OF THIS UNIT

You are the proud owner of a Yamaha stereo receiver –an extremely sophisticated audio component. The Digital Sound Field

Processor (DSP) built into this unit takes full advantage of Yamaha’s undisputed leadership in the field of digital audio processing to bring you a whole new world of listening experiences. Follow the instructions in this manual carefully when setting up your system, and this unit will sonically transform your room into a totally new listening environment – movie theater, concert hall, and so on. In addition, you get incredible realism from Dolby Surround-encoded video sources using the built-in Dolby Pro Logic Surround

Decoder.

Please read this operation manual carefully and store it in a safe place for later reference.

Digital Sound Field Processing

What is it that makes live music so good? Today’s advanced sound reproduction technology lets you get extremely close to the sound of a live performance, but chances are you’ll still notice something missing: the acoustic environment of the live concert hall. Extensive research into the exact nature of the sonic reflections that create the ambience of a large hall has made it possible for Yamaha engineers to bring you this same sound in your own listening room, so you’ll feel all the sound of a live concert.

Furthermore, our technicians, armed with sophisticated measuring equipment, have even made it possible to capture the acoustics of a variety of venues such as an actual concert hall, theater, etc. to allow you to accurately recreate one of several live performance environments in your own home.

Dolby Pro Logic Surround

The Dolby Pro Logic Surround Decoder program lets you experience the dramatic realism and impact of a Dolby

Surround movie theater sound in your own home. Dolby Pro

Logic gets its name from its professional-grade steering logic circuitry, which provides greater effective front and rear channel separation for a much higher degree of realism than the “passive” Dolby Surround circuits found in less sophisticated home audio/video equipment. Dolby Pro Logic

Surround provides a true center channel, so there are four independent channels, unlike passive Dolby Surround which has in effect only three channels: left, right, and rear. This center channel allows listeners seated in even less-than-ideal positions to hear the dialog originating from action on the screen while getting a stereo effect as well.

This Dolby Pro Logic Surround Decoder employs a digital signal processing system. This system increases sound stability at each channel and minimizes crosstalk between channels compared to conventional analog Dolby signal processing.

In addition, this unit features a built-in automatic input balance control. This circuit always presents you the best surround conditions without performing manual adjustments.

Dolby Pro Logic Surround + DSP

Additionally you can enjoy sound environment created by the combination of Dolby Pro Logic and YAMAHA DSP. Precise sound movement and orientation by the Dolby Pro Logic technology is added to sound fields which are precisely recreated on the basis of actual acoustic environments by the

DSP technology, so it is suitable for any Audio/Video source with video image. This combination is used on sound field programs “DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED”, “70 mm MOVIE

THEATER”, “TV THEATER” and “SPORTS”.

CINEMA DSP

The YAMAHA “CINEMA DSP” logo indicates these programs are created by the combination of Dolby Pro Logic and YAMAHA

DSP technology.

SPEAKER SETUP

SPEAKERS TO BE USED

This unit is designed to provide the best sound-field quality with a 5 speaker configuration. The most effective speakers to use with this unit are front speakers, rear speakers and a center speaker. You may omit the center speaker. (Refer to the “4-Speaker

Configuration” shown below.)

The front speakers are used for the main source sound plus the effect sounds. They will probably be the speakers from your present stereo system. The rear speakers are used for the effect and surround sounds, and the center speaker is for the center sounds (dialog etc.) within the Dolby Surround encoded programs. The center speaker needs to be equal in power to the front speakers, although the rear speakers should not be equal. However, all the speakers should have high enough power handling to accept the maximum output of this unit.

SPEAKER CONFIGURATION

5-Speaker Configuration

This configuration is the most effective and recommended one.

In this configuration, the center speaker is necessary as well as the rear speakers. If the digital sound field program DOLBY

PRO LOGIC, DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED, 70 mm

MOVIE THEATER, TV THEATER or SPORTS is selected, conversations will be output from the center speaker and the ambience will be excellent.

Set the center channel mode to the “NORMAL” or “WIDE” position. (For details, refer to page 14.)

4-Speaker Configuration

The center speaker is not used in this configuration. If the digital sound field program DOLBY PRO LOGIC, DOLBY PRO

LOGIC ENHANCED, 70 mm MOVIE THEATER, TV

THEATER or SPORTS is selected, the center sound is output from the left and the right front speakers. However, the sound effect of other programs can be the same as that of the 5speaker configuration.

Be sure to set the center channel mode to the “PHANTOM” position. (For details, refer to page 14.)

GND terminal

For maximum safety and minimum interference, connect the

GND terminal to a good earth ground. A good earth ground is a metal stake driven into moist earth.

Notes

When connecting the indoor

FM antenna, insert its connector into the FM ANT terminal firmly.

If you need an outdoor

FM antenna to improve

FM reception quality, either 300-ohm feeder or coaxial cable may be used. In locations troubled by electrical interference, coaxial cable is preferable.

SPEAKER BALANCE ADJUSTMENT

This procedure lets you adjust the sound output level balance between the front, center, and rear speakers using the built-in test tone generator. When this adjustment is performed, the sound output level heard at the listening position will be the same from each speaker. This is important for the best performance of the digital sound field processor.

The adjustment of each speaker output level should be done at your listening position with the remote control transmitter.

Otherwise, the result may not be satisfactory.

Notes

Once you have completed these adjustments, you can adjust whole sound level on your audio system by using the VOLUME control (or the MASTER VOLUME keys on

● the remote control transmitter).

If you use external power amplifiers, their volume controls may also be adjusted to achieve proper balance.

In step 12, if the center channel mode is in the

PHANTOM” position, the sound output level of the center speaker cannot be adjusted. This is because in this mode, the center sound is automatically output from the left and right front speakers.

<

Australia and Singapore models only

>

If there is insufficient sound output from the center and rear speakers, you may decrease the front speaker output level by setting the FRONT LEVEL switch on the rear panel to “–10 dB”.

USING DIGITAL SOUND FIELD PROCESSOR (DSP)

This unit incorporates a sophisticated, multi-program digital sound field processor, which allows you to expand and shape the audio sound field from both the audio and video sources, for a theater-like experience in the listening/viewing room.

This digital sound field processor has 10 programs; 5 programs for audio sources and 5 programs for Audio/Video sources. You can create an excellent audio sound field by selecting the suitable program and adding desired adjustments. In addition, when the

DOLBY PRO LOGIC, DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED or 70 mm MOVIE THEATER program is selected, the built-in automatic input balance control functions. This presents you the best surround condition without manual adjustment.

Description of Each Sound Field Program

The following list gives brief descriptions of the sound fields produced by each of the DSP programs. Keep in mind that most of these are precise digital recreations of actual acoustic environments. The data for them was recorded at the locations described using sophisticated sound field measurement equipment.

Note

The channel level balance between the left rear effect speaker and the right rear effect speaker may vary depending on the sound field you are listening to. This is due to the fact that most of these sound field recreations are actual acoustic environments.

FEATURE

This program is effective for playback of sources encoded with Dolby Surround.

The employment of the digital signal processing system improves crosstalk and transfers the sound source more smoothly and precisely, compared to the conventional type. A stable movie sound field is recreated.

This program is effective for playback of sources encoded with Dolby Surround.

Enhancing the “Normal” Dolby Pro Logic, the DSP technology simulates the multi-surround speaker systems of a 35 mm film theater, thus widening the surrounded-sound field with greater presence.

This program is effective for playback of sources encoded with Dolby Sorround.

The Yamaha DSP technology is ideally combined with the Dolby Pro Logic to present you incredible listening experience of the 70 mm film movie theater. This program is ideal for precisely reproducing the sound design of the newest movies. The sound field is made according to the design of the newest movie theaters, so the reverberations of the sound field itself are restrained as much as possible. The three dimensional feeling of the sound field is emphasized, and dialog is precisely oriented on the screen. You can enjoy watching Sci-Fi, adventure movies, etc. with this program.

TV THEATER

SPORTS

STADIUM

ROCK CONCERT

JAZZ CLUB

This program is suitable for dramas, variety or music programs, etc.. Much surround effect can be gained for stereo sources.

This program is furnished with a tight sound field in which the sound will not spread excessively on the front side, but the rear surround side produces a dynamic sound expansion. This program is the most suitable for sports programs encoded with Dolby Surround.

This program gives you long delays between direct sounds and effect sounds, and extraordinarily spacious feel of a large stadium.

This program is suitable for rock music. A big, powerful sound is reproduced lively and dynamically.

This is a small, cozy jazz club with a low ceiling. The sound is very close and intimate.

This program recreates the acoustic environment of a modern church with a high pointed dome and columns along the sides. This interior produces a very few primary reflections.

CONCERT HALL

In this program, the center seems deep behind the front speaker pair, creating an expansive, large hall ambience.

Description of Dolby Pro Logic Surround

DOLBY PRO LOGIC SURROUND: This unit employs the Dolby Pro Logic Surround system. This system is similar to professional Dolby Stereo decoders used in movie theaters.

By employing a four-channel system, the Dolby Pro Logic

Surround system divides the input signals into four levels: the left and right main channels, the center channel (to characterize dialog), and the rear surround-sound channels (to characterize sound effects, background noise and other ambient noise).

Dolby Surround is encoded on the sound track of commercially available video cassettes and video discs as well. When you play a source encoded with Dolby Surround on your home video system, the Dolby Pro Logic Surround system in this unit decodes the signal and feeds the surround-sound effects.

The Dolby Pro Logic Surround mode may not be always effective on video sources not encoded with Dolby Surround.

If you prefer to cancel the DSP, press the EFFECT switch.

The sound will be the normal 2-channel stereo without surround sound effect.

When STADIUM, ROCK CONCERT, JAZZ CLUB,

CHURCH or CONCERT HALL is selected, no sound is heard from the center speaker.

When a monaural sound source is played with DOLBY

PRO LOGIC or DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED, no sound is heard from the front speakers and the rear speakers. Sound is heard only from the center speaker.

However, if the center channel mode is in PHANTOM, the front speakers output the sound of the center channel.

When this unit’s Dolby Pro Logic Surround system is used, if the main-source sound is considerably altered by overadjustment of the BASS or TREBLE controls, the relationship between the center and rear channels may produce an unnatural effect.

By using this feature, this unit can then be used in place of one or more other remote control transmitters, thus making operation of your various audio and video components more convenient. Use the included user program sheets to indicate a new function learned for each key.

Note

There may occasionally be instances in which, due to the signal-coding and modulation employed by the other remote control transmitter, this unit will not be able to “learn” its signals.

Notes

When you operate the desired component with this remote control transmitter, TRANSMIT/LEARN indicator will flash

● steadily.

The originally preset function of a key is still available in the

USER position if a new function has not been learned to the key.

Successful learning to a key results in the erasure of previously learned functions and their replacement by the newly learned ones.

If there is no more room in the memory area for a function to be learned, the TRANSMIT/LEARN indicator will flash on and off. In this case, even if some keys are not occupied with functions from other remote control transmitters, no further learning is possible.

Memory back-up

All of the learned functions will be retained while you replace the batteries. However, if no batteries are installed for a few hours, the learned functions will be erased and will have to be learned again.

About 5–10 cm

(2–4 in.)

Press and hold the key (on the other remote control transmitter) where the desired new function is.

Lights up.

* When the TRANSMIT/LEARN indicator stops lighting, the learning is finished.
