A/V RECEIVERS
Introduction to A/V Receivers
The heart of any home theater system, and the component
you'll interact with most. A/V receivers handle a multitude of
essential tasks that can make or break the quality of your
home entertainment experience. It has a preamp allowing you
to route audio and video from different sources DVD, cable TV,
CD, turntable, etc. to your speakers and television. The receiver
also does doubles as an AM/FM tuner, amplifier for you speakers, and typically controls everything from surround-sound
decoding (such as Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Digital, or DTS) to
tone controls (bass and treble) and master volume. An A/V receiver is similar to the conventional “stereo” receiver you’ve had for
years, with several important differences. Although both select sources, control the system’s playback volume, and amplify signals to
drive your loudspeakers, the A/V receiver is unique in three respects: It includes some form of surround-sound decoding, it processes
5.1 or 7.1 channels (rather than the stereo receiver's two channels) and it has video inputs and outputs.
Surround Sound
DSP Processing
At the heart of the receiver is the surround-sound processor. The most
basic surround processors use a Dolby Pro Logic II decoder. Pro Logic II
is a "matrix" system that takes an encoded two-channel stereo signal
and converts it to a five-channel full bandwidth (range) playback
(Left/Center/Right/Left Surround/Right Surround), resulting in a surround experience. Most TV shows are encoded in Dolby Pro Logic II, as
are the majority of VHS videos. You can also play DVDs through a Pro
Logic II only-receiver because DVD players can synthesize a Pro Logic II
signal that mimics a surround soundtrack. The newer Dolby Pro Logic
IIx adds the ability of converting stereo or 5.1-channel surround sound
for seamless 6.1 or 7.1 playback.
All modern A/V receivers use Digital Signal Processing (DSP) chips to
perform Dolby Digital and DTS decoding. The same DSP chips also create the "soundfield" modes that process two-channel sources for surround-sound playback over multiple loudspeakers. These soundfield
modes attempt to replicate the acoustics of various venues, from jazz
clubs to stadiums, by adding simulated acoustic reflections to the signal and delaying the signals sent to the surround loudspeakers.
(Sometimes these emulations amount to little more than novelty
effects, but depending on your program material, they can enhance
your listening experience).
The reality though, is that every A/V receiver now has state-of-the-art,
movie-theater-quality 5.1-channel Dolby Digital decoding. With five
channels of discrete, full-frequency sound plus a low frequency effects
(subwoofer) channel (the ".1"), Dolby Digital is the surround-sound
standard that has revolutionized home-theater sound. A "Dolby Digitalready" receiver accepts a decoded Dolby Digital signal, from a DVD
player equipped with a built-in decoder, via analog inputs. Or, you can
get a receiver with full Dolby-Digital-decoding built-in. Dolby Digital
EX adds a center rear channel which helps clarify audio effects that pan
from front to back.
In addition to Dolby Digital, many AV receivers now also include DTS
(Digital Theater Sound) decoding, which is another 5.1 or 6.1 channel
system. DTS uses a lower digital-compression rate than Dolby Digital and
it tends to sound better. However, less compression does mean more
than more disc space — in this case more three times. DTS Neo:6 provides up to six channels of matrix decoding from stereo matrix material.
DTS Digital Surround is the DTS standard for providing 5.1 channels of
discrete digital audio. DTS 96/24 is a 5.1-channel surround format that
offers a higher standard of audio quality by encoding with 96kHz sampling rate and 24-bit word length.
Top of the line A/V receivers include THX Surround EX and DTS ES.
These formats add a third surround channel that drives loudspeakers
located directly behind the listener. Receivers with EX and ES decoding
usually include seven amplifier channels rather than five. And they
have the same goal: to allow film sound-mixers to position sounds and
pans (movements of sounds) more precisely behind you.

DSP chips also perform another important function in the receiver:
bass management. Bass management filters bass frequencies from
small loudspeakers and directs them to the subwoofer. While Dolby
Digital, DTS, and DSP surround processing all occur in the digital
domain, the final sound output must come from your analog speakers.
Receivers use a multi-channel digital-to-analog converter (DAC) to create the final analog signal passed on to your speakers. These DACs can
vary greatly in sound quality so be careful.
Inputs
You should make sure your AV receiver has sufficient audio and video
inputs and outputs to meet your current and future needs. Today a
DVD player may be your only digital source, but tomorrow you may
wish to add a DBS satellite dish and a CD recorder that requires their
own digital inputs for optimum performance.

Introduction to A/V Receivers
Inputs (continued)
Amplifier Power
To get the most from DVD, make sure your TV has an S-Video, or even
better, a component video input. Most receivers include S-Video switching and multiple S-Video inputs and outputs so you can conveniently
switch between other S-Video sources like DBS satellite and a Hi8 or
Digital8 camcorder. With its improved color purity, superior color detail,
and reduced NTSC artifacts, Component video is superior to both
composite and S-video. While it's ideal to have a receiver with S-Video
or component video switching, there are some very good but affordable
receivers that don’t have S-Video or component capability. If you plan to
get an HDTV TV or projector with component-video inputs, look for a
receiver offering component-video switching. Last, if you frequently use
your camcorder with your home theater setup, be sure your receiver
includes a set of convenient front-panel AV jacks.
How much amplifier power do you really need for your home theater
setup? For the best performance, a minimum of 100 watts per channel
(20-20,000 Hz, all channels driven) is recommended. Power is the most
misunderstood specification in home theater. For example, a
manufacturer might give their receiver a two-channel-driven rating of
100 watts at 20-20,000 Hz. Their five-channel playback (all channels
driven) rating might look similar but mean something very different: 100
watts at 1000 Hz, for example. Because it's only given for one frequency,
not the entire range, the second spec probably means there is a significant
power drop off at the frequency extremes when all five channels are in
use. The bottom line is when looking at power ratings, try to get a rating
that covers the full audio spectrum, not just one frequency.
Outputs
You'll want to make sure your receiver has enough outputs for all your
speakers, monitors, and other devices. If you own a CD or DVD recorder,
you'll probably want a receiver with a digital output jack, either coaxial or
optical, depending upon your recorder's input. If you're going to be using
a powered subwoofer in your home theater setup, you'll also want a
subwoofer out. You might want to consider buying a receiver with
“pre-out” line-level RCA jacks for each of its main channels, especially if
your budget restricts you to a relatively low-powered model. That way
you can easily add a more powerful outboard amplifier later, relegating
your AV receiver to preamplifier status. If you're highly concerned about
future upgradeability, you might want to consider a receiver that has
six- or even eight-channel throughputs. This will allow your receiver to
pass the signal from a future surround-sound format.
Because most home-theater speaker systems consist of five limitedfrequency-range satellites and a subwoofer, you should buy a receiver
with a flexible bass management system that permits you to direct low
frequencies (anywhere from 180 Hz on down) from the five main
channels to the subwoofer. This enables both the receiver and your
speakers to perform more efficiently.
Another factor influences how powerful a receiver you need: whether or
not you have a subwoofer with a built-in power amplifier. With a subwoofer
in the system, low bass frequencies are filtered from the signals driving the
main loudspeakers, which reduces the amount of amplifier power needed
to drive them. Low bass requires more amplifier power to reproduce
than do midrange and treble frequencies. By directing the bass to the
subwoofer and away from the main speakers, the receiver’s power
amplifiers don't have to work as hard. Adding a powered subwoofer
reduces the receiver's power-output requirements by about 20 percent.
Plus, power output isn't always an indicator of how loudly your
home-theater system will play. In fact, the speakers connected to the
receiver have as much influence on the system's volume capability as
does amplifier power. Specifically, loudspeakers vary in their sensitivity,
a measure of how much sound they produce for a given amount of input
power. What does sensitivity difference mean in the real world? A great
deal. Every 3-dB decrease in loudspeaker sensitivity requires a doubling
of amplifier power to achieve the same loudness. That means that
speaker A (83-dB sensitivity) would need 16 times the amplifier power
to produce a given sound-pressure level compared to speaker B (95-dB
sensitivity). Yes–160 watts driving speaker A produces the same volume
as 10 watts driving speaker B! That's why you should match the receiver’s
output power to your speakers’ sensitivity.
THX CERTIFICATION
ome receivers are billed as "THX Certified” (Ultra, Ultra II or
Select) which means they incorporate four Lucasfilm-developed technologies that better translates the soundtrack
intended for theater reproduction into the home. THX-certified
receivers also meet a set of technical criteria established by Lucas
Film. These are:
Choosing a THX-certified A-V receiver has many advantages. First,
◆ A re-equalization circuit to reduce excessive brightness
Third, a receiver with THX certification will likely have all the output
S
◆
◆
Surround de-correlation to increase the sense of envelopment by
making the left and right surround channels slightly different
from each other
Timbre matching to assure that sounds from the front and surround channels have the same timbre
◆ A subwoofer crossover
THX's signal processing (surround decorrelation, timbre matching,
re-equalization, subwoofer crossover) is of unquestionable benefit in
reproducing film soundtracks in the home. Second, you know that
the receiver has achieved a certain level of technical performance.
power you'll ever need. Finally, using a THX-certified receiver with
THX-certified loudspeakers and subwoofer takes the guesswork out
of matching the receiver to the loudspeakers.
However, that there are many excellent receivers that don't bear the
THX logo—simply because their manufacturers decided not to participate in the THX licensing program–or pay Lucasfilm royalties.

Switchable Front-Panel Jacks
Front-panel input jacks are common on many A/V products, but that
doesn’t help when you want to send a source out of the receiver, for
dubbing to a portable device. Harman receivers make things easy by
allowing you to switch the video, analog audio and digital audio
jacks on the front panel of select AVRs from an input to an output.
With one quick change of a menu setting, any digital or analog
source is routed to the front panel so that you can make your dub
for the day and be on your way.
The multi-room Solution
Every A-BUS Ready Harman Kardon receiver includes a multi-room
switching system, assignable rear amplifier channels and a Zone II
standard remote. A simple cable connection to an AB 1 module is all
that’s needed to send audio and power commands to any room of
your house. The easily installed AB 1 module powers your remote
in-wall speakers without further amplification or AC connections, and
it does more than adjust volume. It includes a built-in remote sensor
to control your entire system.
High-Current Capability—
more muscle for maximum punch
Watts per channel is an incomplete measure of amplifier power. In terms
of dynamic range and impact, it’s current that counts. HCC is an overall
design approach encompassing everything from transformer design and
capacitor size to discrete output circuitry and minimal use of negative
feedback. This electronic equivalent of a high-torque, high-displacement
racing engine results in audible benefits. You enjoy tighter bass, superb
transient response and enhanced presence at any volume level.
EzSet Quick Surround Setup—
your own personal audio technician
EzSet speaker calibration lets you automatically balance individual
speaker channel levels for optimum surround sound enjoyment –
regardless of the speaker type or room conditions. Push a few buttons
and, in less than three minutes, your Harman Kardon home cinema
system is calibrated. Bottom line – the adjustment most critical to
multichannel movie soundtrack reproduction is virtually foolproof.

Silent Cinema technology enables you
to enjoy the benefits of digital surround
at any time of day without disturbing
members of your household.
SilentCinema is made possible by using
Yamaha’s custom designed LSI (Large
Scale Integration) chip sets, which utilize
a Cinema DSP algorithm for threedimensional sound based on HRTF (Head
Related Transfer Function). As an added
convenience, when headphones are
plugged in, the speaker outputs turn off
automatically, and the receiver switches
to the SILENT CINEMA mode.
YPAO —Yamaha Parametric
Room Acoustic Optimizer
Yamaha’s unique
YPAO System
analyzes the
acoustics of your
room and adjusts
various speaker parameters to provide
optimum sound. Using the included
optimizer microphone placed in the
listening position, and the receiver's builtin parametric equalizer, the YPAO System
takes into account 5 variables for tuning
your system: proper speaker connections
and phase; speaker distance from the
listening position; speaker size and
subwoofer crossover frequency, speaker
frequency response, and Sound Pressure
Level alignment. The system is automatic
— simply activating the YPAO System
causes test tones to be emitted from the
speakers. These tones are picked up by
the optimizer microphone and analyzed.
Cinema DSP Digital
Featured in Yamaha Digital Home Theater
Components, this amazing technology
makes the sound from movies (and
music, too) much more thrilling and
realistic than anything you’ve ever heard
from a home system. You’ll discover
the full possibilities of home theater
entertainment with Yamaha Cinema
DSP components.
