This unit is equipped with a high performance DSP (Digital Signal Precessor) wMch uses digital signal processing to synthetically
recreate the sound field. One of 7 preset surround modes can be selected according to the program seurce and the parameters can
be adjusted according to the conditions in the listening room te achieve a more realistic, powerful sound.
1
The front left channel signals are output to the surround and surreund back left channels, the front right
channel signals are output te the surround and surround back right channels, and the in-phase component
of the left and right channels is output te the center channel. Use this mode to enjoy stereo sound.

Select this to emphasize the sense ef expansion for music sources recorded in stere<>. Signals consisting
of the component difference of the input signals (the component that provides the sense ef expansien)
srocessed for delay are output from the surround channel.
Select this mode to enjey a virtual sound field, produced from the front 2-channel speakers er headphones.
÷ Depending on the program source being played, the effect may net be very noticeable.
In this case, try other surround medes, without worrying about their names, to create a sound field suited to your tastes.
NOTE:When playing sources recerded in menaural, the sound will be one-sided if signals are only input to ene channel (left er right),
so input signals to both channels. If you have a source component with only one audio output (monophonic camcorder, etc.)
obtain a "Y" adapter cable to split the meno output to two outputs, and connect to the L and R inputs.
• Personal memory plus
This set is equipped with a personal memorize function that automatically memorizes the surround modes and input modes selected
fer the different seurces. When the input source is switched, the modes set fer that source last time it was used are automatically

Mode
• The subwoofer mode setting is only valid when "Large" is set
for the front speakers and "Yes" is set for the subwoofer in
"Setting the Speaker Config." (_
page 44).
• When the "LFE+MAIN"
playback mode is selected, the low
frequency signal range of channels set to "Large" is produced
simultaneously
from those channels and the subwoofer
channel.
In this playback mode, the low frequency range expands 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 is
played from the subwoofer channel is only the low frequency
signal range of LFE (only during Dolby Digital or DTS signal
playback) and the channels specified as "Sr;_all" in the setup
menu.
• Select the play mode that offers the fullest bass.
• 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.

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 Nstening position.

Though the surround back channel only consists of 1 channel of

recommend using two speakers. When using speakers with

speakers.
Using two speakers results in a smoether blend with the sound

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 in 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.

between the front left and right speakers and no further from
the listening position than the front speakers.
• Consult the owner's manual for your subwoofer for advice on
placing the subwoefer 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 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 0.7 feet 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.
This is recommended
when mainly playing movies and using
regular single way or 2-way speakers for the surround speakers.

DTS-ES Extended Surround is a new multi-channel digital signal
fermat developed by Digital Theater Systems Inc. While offering
high cempatibility with the conventional DTS Digital Surround
fermat, DTS-ES Extended Surreund greatly impreves the 360degree surround impression and space expressien thanks to
further expanded surreund signals. This format has been used
professionally in mevie theaters since 1999.
In addition to the 5.1 surround channels (FL, FR, C, SL, SR and
LFE), DTS-ES Extended Surreund also offers the SB (Surreund
Back, semetimes also referred to as "surreund center") channel
fer surround playback with a total ef 6.1 channels.
DTS-ES
Extended Surreund includes two signal formats with different
surround signal recerding methods, as described below.
• DTS-ES
TM
Discrete 6.1
DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 is tile 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 fermat is that because the SL, SR and SB channels are
fully independent, the sound can be designed with total freedem
and it is pessible te achieve a sense that the acoustic images are
moving abeut freely ameng the background sounds surreunding
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 deceder the SB channel
signals are automatically down-mixed te the SL and SR channels,
so none of the signal cemponents are lest.
• DTS-ES
TM
Matrix 6.1
With this format, the additional SB channel signals undergo
matrix encoding and are input to the SL and SR channels
beferehand. Upon playback they are decoded to the SL, SR and
SBchannels.
The performanceeftheencoder
used at the time
of recerding can be fully matched using a high precisien digital
matrix decoder develeped by DTS, thereby achieving surreund
sound more faithful to the producer's seund design aims than
with conventienal 5.1- or 6.1-channel systems.
In addition, the bit stream format is 100% compatible with
conventienal DTS signals, se the effect ef 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 enceded sources
with a DTS 5.1-channel deceder.
When DTS-ES Discrete
6.1 er Matrix 6.1 encoded
sources are
decoded with a DTS-ES deceder, the format is autematically
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 seurces. (For instructions on
selecting the surround mode (_

• DTS Neo:6 Music
This mode is suited mainly fer playing music. Changes in the

[4] DTS 96/24
The sampling frequency, number ef bits and number of channels
used for recording ef music, etc., in studies have 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/seund
quality DVD vide{)
seurces 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 pessible with
DVD audio seurces, but DVD audie players are required te play
them with this high quality.
DTS 96/24 is a multi-channel digital signal format developed by
Digital Theater Systems inc. in erder to deal with this situation.
Conventional surround formats used sampling frequencies ef 48
or 44.1 kHz, se 20 kHz was abeut the maximum playback signal
frequency. With DTS 96/24, the sampling frequency is increased
te 96 er 88.2 kHz to achieve a wide frequency range ef ever 40
kHz.
In additien, 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 cempatible
with a maximum of 5.1 channels, se sources recerded using DTS
96/24 can be played in high sampling frequency, multiple channel
audie 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 multFchannel surround can be achieved using normal
CD/LD players ( ÷ 1).
Even with the high quality multi-channel signals, the recerding
time is the same as with conventional DTS surround sources.
What's mere, DTS 96/24 is fully compatible with the cenventienal
DTS surround format, se DTS 96/24 signal sources can be played
with a sampling frequency ef 48 kHz er 44.1 kHz on cenventk)nal
DTS or DTS-ES surround decoders (÷ 2).
÷ 1 A DVD player with DTS digital output capabilities (fer CD/LD
players, a player with digital outputs for conventional DTS
CDdLDs) and a disc recorded in DTS 96/24 are required.
÷ 2 The reselution is 24 or 20 bits, depending on the decoder.
