• Whenever the power switch is in the STANDBY state, the
apparatus is still connected on AC line voltage.
Please be sure to unplug the cord when you leave home for,
say, a vacation.
• Muting of PRE OUT jacks and SPEAKER terminals
The PRE OUT jacks and SPEAKER terminals include a muting
circuit Because of this, the output signals are greatly reduced for
several seconds after the power switch is turned on or input
function, surround mode or any other-setup
is changed. If the
volume is turned up during this time, the output will be very high
after the muting circuit stops functioning
Always wait until the
muting circuit turns off before adjusting the volume.

FEATURES
1. Digital Surround Sound Decoding
Featuring dual 32 bit high speed DSP processors, operating
entirely in digital domain, surround sound from digital sources
such as DVD, DTV and satellite are faithfully re=created
2. Dolby Digital
Using advanced digital processing
algorithms,
Dolby Digital
provides up to 51 channels of wide-range, high fidelity surround
sound. Dolby Digital is the default digital audio delivery system for
North American DVD and DTV, and is available on laser discs as
well as some digital satellite direct4o-home services.
3. DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
DTS provides up to 51 channels of wide-range, high fidelity
surround sound, from sources such as laser disc, DVD and
specially-encoded music discs.
4. Lucasfilm Home THX Ultra2 Certified
Home THX is the unique collaboration between Lucasfilm Ltd and
audio equipment manufacturers. THX Ultra2 certification is the
highest performance
level, and provides a ngorous set of
performance
standards, along with proprietary surround sound
post-processing technologies, designed to enhance the surround
soundtrack playback experience in the home theater
In addition to improvements to the power amplifier with respect
to previous THX Ultra standards, two surround modes have been
added: the THX Ultra2 Cinema mode and the THX Music mode
5. THX Surround EX
The AVR-BB03 is fully compatible
surround format.
with THX Surround EX, the latest
6. DTS-ES Extended Surround and DTS Neo:6
The AVR_5803 is compatible with DTS_ES Extended Surround, a new
muIt -channel format developed by Digital Theater Systems Inc.
The AVR-5803 is also compatible with DTS Neo:B, a surround mode
allowing 6.1-channel playback of regular stereo sources.
7. DTS 96/24 compatibility
The AVR_BB03 is compatible with sources recorded in DTS 96/24, a
new multi channel digital signal format developed by Digital Theater
Systems lnc
DTS 96/24 sources can be played in the muir-channel mode on the
AVR-BB03 with high sound quality of 96 kHz!24 bits or 882 kHz/24 bits
8. Dolby Pro Logic 1I decoder
Dolby Pro Logic ][ is a new format for playing multichannel audio
signals that offers improvements
over conventional
Do(by Pro
Logic It can be used to decode not only sources recorded in
Dolby Surround but also regular stereo sources into five channels
(front left/right, center and surround left/dght). In addition, various
parameters can be set according to the type of source and the
contents, so you can adjust the sound field with greater precision.
9. Wide screen mode for a 7.t-channel sound even with
5.1-channel sources
DENQN has developed a wide screen mode with a new design
which recreates the effects of the multi surround speakers in
movie theaters. The result is 7.1_channel sound taking full
advantage of surround back speakers, even with Dolby Pro Logic
or Dolby Digital/DTS 5 1-channel signals
10.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 onaxis 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 thblling
surround sound music listening.
Producers of multFchannel 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-BBO3 provides the ability to connect two
different sets of surround speakers, and place them in the
appropriate locations in your home theater room, so that you
can enjoy both movie soundtracks and music listening, with
optimum results and no compromise
11.Multi-zone control
The AVR=5803 is equipped with two sets of multi-zone outputs
allowing a source other than the one currently being played to be
selected.
(1) MultFzone 1
These are level adjustable pre-outputs.
(A fixed output level
can also be selected.)
The video signals of the input source selected with the multF
zone 1 selector are output
(2) MultFzone 2
When set at the System Setup Menu, the power amplifier for
the surround back channel can be used as the multi-zone 2
power amplifier and speakers can be connected to the multF
zone 2 speaker terminals for playback
12.Component Video Switching
The AVR-B803 provides 3 sets of component video (% R_Y, B_Y)
inputs for the DVD, TV and DBS/SAT inputs, and one set of
component video outputs to the television, for superior picture
quality
The AVR-BBO3 is also equipped with a function for up-converting
composite video or SWideo signals to component video signals.
13.Video Select Function
Allow you to watch one source (visual) while listening to another
source (audio).
5
14.Seven Identical Power Amplifiers
Featuring discrete high current power transistors, the power amp
section is THX Ultra certified for top performance with the widest
range of speaker systems. Rated at 170 watts into 8 _2/ohms, the
amp channels feature additional low impedance drive capability
15.Future Sound Format Upgrade Capability via Eight Channel
Inputs & Outputs
For future multi=channel audio format(s), the AVR=BS03 is provided
with 71 channel (seven main channels, plus one low frequency
effects channel} inputs, along with a full set of 71 channel preamp outputs, controlled by the 8 channel master volume control.
This assures future upgrade possibilities for any future multichannel sound format
A/D converters are provided for each channel for digital downm_xlng compatibility.
17.DENON Link
This terminal can be used to connect a Denon DVD player for high
quality digital multichannel playback.
18.Auto Surround Mode
This function stores the surround mode last used for an hqput
signal in the memory and automagcally sets that surround mode
the next time that signal is input.
19.Audio Delay
This is a function for delaying the audio signal with respect to the
video signal. (0 to 200 msec)
20.Setup Lock
This is a function that locks the system setup and surround
parameter settings, etc., so that they cannot be changed
16.Dolby Headphone Compatibility
This is a three=dimensional sound technology developed jointly by
Dolby Laboratories and Lake Technology Ltd. of Australia for
achieving surround sound using regular headphones.

the S-jacks are only output from the S-jack outputs and video signals input from the pin jacks are only output from the pin jack outputs.
When connecting this unit with equipment that is equipped with S-jacks, keep the above point in mind and make connections according to the
equipment's instruction manuals.

OUT jacks
The AVR-BB03 is equipped with a function for up converting video signals
Because of this, the AVR-BB03's MONITOR OUT jack can be connected to the monitor (TV) with a single cable offering a higher quality connection,
regardless of how the player and the AVR-B803's video input iacks are connected.
Generally speaking, connections using the component video jacks offer the highest quality playback, followed by connections using the S-Video
jacks, then connections using the regular video jacks (yellow).
-_ If the AVR-BB03's MONITOR OUT jack is not connected to the monitor (TV) using the component video jacks, connect the player to the AVR5B03's video input jacks using either the video jacks (yellow) or the S-Video jacks. The video signals will not be output if the player and the
AVR-BBO3 are only connected with the component video jacks.

• Connect the speaker terminals with the speakers making sure
that like polarities are matched ( (_ with (_ , (_ with e ).
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
Speaker Impedance
• Speakers with an tmpedance of from 6 to 16 £_/ohms can be
connected for use as front and center speakers
• Speakers with an impedance of 6 to 16 £_/ohms can be connected
for use as surround speakers
• 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.
NOTE:
NEVER touch the speaker terminals when the power is on,
Doing so could result in electric shocks.

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 short-circuited 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.
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 £)/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.
The AVR-5803 is equipped with a cooling fan to prevent the temperature inside the set from rising. The fan is activated
under certain usage conditions. It is temperature and volume level sensitive, to minimize or prevent audible fan noise.

NOTES:
• The omscreen 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-5803's S_Video and video monitor output jacks and signals are input to the AVR5803 from a video source (VDP, etc.) connected to both the S_Video and video input jacks, the omscreen display signals are output with
priority to the S_Video monitor output. If you wish to output the signals to the video monitor output jack, do not connect a cord to the S_
V]DEO input jack. (For details, see page 37)
• The AVR-5803's on-screen display function is designed for use with high resolution monitor TVs, so it may be difficuk to read small
characters on TVs with small screens or low resolutions
• The setup menu is not displayed when headphones are being used.
• Speaker system layout

Two surround back speakers are required to use the THX Ultra2 Cinema and THX Music modes.
Set the surround back speakers so that the distance to the listening point is the same for both the left and right speakers. It is also recommended
that the deviations of the distance from the listening position to L and R channel speakers (front left (FL) and front right (FR), surround left (SL)
and surround right (SR), surround back left (SBL) and surround back right (SBR)) is less than 2 ft (60 cm)
With the AVR-5803 it is also possible to use the surround speaker selector function to choose the best layout for a variety of sources and surround
modes.
• Surround speaker selector function
This function makes it possible to achieve the optimum sound fields for different sources by switching between two systems of surround
speakers (A and B) The settings of the different speakers (A only, B only or A+B) are stored in the memory for the different surround modes,

-- Assignment of low frequency signal range -• The only signals produced from the subwoofer channel are LFE signals /during playback of Dolby Digital or DTS signals} and the low
frequency signal range of channels set to "Small" in the setup menu. The low frequency signal range of channels set to "Large" are
produced from those channels
-- Subwoofer
mode --
• The subwoofer mode setting is only valid when "Large" is set for the front speakers and "Yes" is set for the subwoofer in the "Speaker
Configuration" settings (see page 20).
• 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 - THX" 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 THX is recommended in this play
mode so that bass interference is less likely to occur in the room.

The level of each channel should be adjusted to 75 dB (C-weighted, slow meter mode) on a sound level meter at the listening position.
If a sound level meter is not available adjust the channels by ear so the sound levels are the same. Because adjusting the subwoofer level test
tone by ear is difficult, use a well known music selection and adiust for natural balance.
NOTE: When adjusting the level of an active subwoofer system, you may also need to adjust the subwoofer's own volume control
When you adiust 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 on page 48.
You can adjust the channel levels for each of the following surround modes: DIRECT, STEREO, 5CH/7CH STEREO, DOLBY/DTS SURROUND,
HOME THX CINEMA, WIDE SCREEN, SUPER STADIUM, ROCK ARENA, JAZZ CLUB, CLASSIC CONCERT, MONO MOVIE, and MATRIX
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".
Make these settings when "Yes" is selected for the subwoofer

CAUTION!
• The master volume is set to "-30 dB" when test tones are output
• The test tones are for confirming the low frequency playback limits and are played at an extremely high level When using a low output
subwoofer, be very careful about irregular operations exceeding clipping by for example turning down the subwoofer's attenuator before
starting then slowly turning the attenuator up to the listening level.
• Also, when the subwoofer is set to "NO" in the speaker configuration, the test tones are output from the front speakers When using front
speakers with low input resistance, check that the sound is not clipped at sections where the signal is strong on the CD music source before
starting the peak limit setting The peak limit setting should not be performed if the music source cannot be played with the master volume
set at "-15"
Set the front speakers to "small" and the subwoofer to "YES" in the speaker configuration. When this is done, the low
frequencies are cut, so the effect is insufficient. We strongly recommend adding a subwoofer.
• If the test tone is clipped when it is set to "-18 dB", set the peak limit to "-18 dB" ]n this case, the input resistance of the subwoofer or
front speakers is insufficient so clipping may occur when playing music. We recommend switching to a subwoofer with a higher input
resistance

UNIT
• The included remote control unit (RC-8000) can be used to operate not only the AVR-5803 but other remote control compatible DENON
components as well. Furthermore, it is equipped with a function for learning the control signals of remote control units of other manufacturers,
so it can also be used to operate nomDENON remote control compatible video components
• For details, refer to the separate (supplied} RC-8000 operating instructions,
• Point the remote control unit at the remote sensor on the main unit
as shown on the diagram
• The remote control unit can be used from a straight distance of
approximately
7 meters/22 feet from the main unit, but this
distance will be shorter if there are obstacles in the way or if the
remote control unit is not pointed directly at the remote sensor.
• The remote control unit can be operated at a horizontal angle of up
to 30 degrees with respect to the remote sensor.
NOTES:
Approx 7 m/22 feet
• It may be difficult to operate the remote control unit if the remote
sensor is exposed to direct sunlight or strong artificial light.
• Do not press buttons on the main unit and remote control unit
simultaneously
Doing so may result in malfunction
• Neon signs or other devices emitting pulse4ype noise nearby may
result in malfunction, so keep the set as far away from such
devices as possible.

Playback
using the DENON Link connector
Digital transfer and multi-channel playback of DVD audio discs and other multi-channel sources is possible by connecting the AVR-5803 to a
Denon DVD player equipped with a Denon Link connector using the connection cable included with the DVD player.
With discs on which special copyright protection measures have been taken, however, the digital signals may not be output from the DVD
player. In this case, connect the DVD player's analog multi=channel output to the AVR-5803's EXTIN_I or EXTIN=2 terminals for playback
Also refer to your DVD player's operating instructions.

The AVR-5803 is equipped with three 2_channel playback modes exclusively
Select the mode to suit your tastes
1
PURE DIRECT mode
In this mode, the music is played with an extremely high level
of sound quality
When this mode is set, all the video-related circuits are turned
off so that music signals can be reproduced with high quality.
When an analog input (phono, etc) is selected, the digital
processing circuitry is also turned off to achieve analog sound
with even higher purity

There are currently various types of multi-channel
signals (signals or formats with more than two channels)

• Other types of audio These signals are designed to recreate a 360 ° sound field using three to five speakers.
In this case the speakers should surround the listener from all sides to create a uniform sound

The THX Surround EX format adds new "Surround
Back" (SB) channels to the conventional
5.1_channel system
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

Speaker(s) for one or two channels are required in order to achieve a THX Surround EX system with the AVR_5803. Adding these, however, allows
you to achieve stronger surround effects not only with sources recorded in THX Surround EX, but also with conventional 2- to 51 channel sources.
The WIDE SCREEN mode is a mode for achieving surround sound with up to 7.I channels using surround back speakers, for sources recorded
in conventional Dolby Surround as well as Dolby Digital B 1-channel and DTS Surround B 1-channel sources Furthermore, all the Denon original
surround modes (see page 61) are compatible with 7 %channel playback, so you can enjoy 7 1-channel sound with any signal source
• Number of surround back speakers
With THX Surround EX, the surround back channel consists of one channel of playback signals, but we recommend using two speakers When
using dipolar speakers 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
• 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
THX Surround EX mode. Check the surround effects of the various modes before selecting the surround mode

same distance from the listening point 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 AVR-5803 and set all settings on

coherent 360 degree surround sound field Connect another pair of direct radiating speakers as described
in example (3) and place them at the rear corners of the room facing towards the prime listening position

3 If the player is switched from the pause or search mode to the play mode when playing an LD in the "AUTO" mode (see page 39), analog
sound may be output momentarily before the sound switches to Dolby Digital This is because the Dolby Digital RF signals output from
the LD are not output during the pause and search modes, so during this type the input mode is switched according to the "AUTO"
mode's signal priority order (see page 39) If this happens, switch to the "RF" (fixed RF input) mode. No analog sound will be output.
4 Some DVD digital outputs have the function of switching the Dolby Digital signal output method between "bit stream" and "(convert to)
PCM" When playing in Dolby Digital surround on the AVR-5803, switch the DVD player's output mode to "bit stream". In some cases
players are equipped with both "bit stream + PCM" and "PCM only" digital outputs. In this case connect the "bit stream + PCM" iacks
to the AVR_5803

@) Dolby Pro Logic ]1
• Dolby Pro Logic ]I 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 ]1 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 ]1 offers a wider

_s) Dolby Headphone
• This is a three-dimensional sound technology developed jointly by Dolby Laboratories and bake Technology Ltd. of Australia for achieving
surround sound using regular headphones.
• Previously, when using headphones all the sounds resonated inside the head and it was uncomfortable to listen over headphones for
long periods of time. Dolby Headphone simulates speaker playback in a room and places the sound at the front or the sides, outside the
head, to achieve a powerful sound like the sound of movie or home theaters This technology is mainly for multichannel audio/video
equipment with Dolby Digital or Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoding functions and works with a high performance digital signal
processing (DSP) chip
• Dolby Headphone is effective not only for multichannel sources but also for stereo programs.
• On the AVR-B8O3, it is possible to output signals encoded in the Dolby Headphone mode from the recording output terminal and record
them on a separate recorder
(2) DTS Digital Surround
DTS Digital Surround (also called simply DTS) is a multi-channel digital signal format developed by Digital Theater Systems.
DTS offers the same "51" 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, I536 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

•_ 1 DTS signals are recorded in the same way on CDs and LDs as PCM signals Because of this, the umdecoded 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-SB03, 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-5803 (see page 64) lights
before turning up the master volume.
3 A DVD player with DTS-compatible digital output is required to play DTS DVDs. A DTB Digital Output logo is featured on the front
panel of compatible DVD players Recent DENON DVD player models feature DTS compatible digital output - consult the player's

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 6.1 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 61 channels.

DTS-ES Extended Surround
includes two
Discrete 6,1
DTS-ES Discrete 6.I is the newest recording format. With it, all 61 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 DTB decoder the SB channel signals are automatically down-mixed to the SL and SR channels, so none of the
signal components are lost.
•
DTS-ES
TM
Matrix 6.1
With this format, the additional SB channel signals undergo matrix encoding and are input to the SL and BR 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.I 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
When DTS=ES Discrete 6.1 or Matrix 61 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 51-channel format,
so the DTS=ES Matrix 6.I mode must be set manually to play these sources.
(For instructions on selecting the surround mode, see page 54.)
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
•
DTS Neo:6
TM
surround
This mode applies conventional 2-channel signals to the high precision digital matrix decoder used for DTS-ES Matrix 61 to achieve 61channel 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 61 channels, and separation between the different channels is improved to the same level as that
of a digital discrete system
DTS Neo:B surround includes two modes for selecting the optimum decoding for the signal source.
76
• 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 weJl, because the imphase 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. 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.
(4) DTS 96/24
The sampling frequency, number of bits and number of channels used for recording of music, etc., in studios has been increasing
years, and there are a growing number of high quality signal sources, including 96 kHz/24 bit 5.%channel sources
For example, there are high picture/sound quality DVD video sources with
However, because the data rate for these audio tracks is extremely high,
the quality of the pictures must be restricted it is common to only include
In addition, 96 kHz/24 bit 5.1=channel surround is possible with DVD audio
high quality.
DTS 96/24 is a multFchannel digital signal format developed
recent
96 kHz/24 bit stereo PCM audio tracks.
there are limits to recording them on two channels only, and since
still pictures
sources, but DVD audio players are required to play them with this
by Digital Theater Systems
Inc in order to deal with this situation.
Conventional surround formats used sampling frequencies of 48 or 441 kHz, so 20 kHz was about the maximum playback signal frequency.
With DTS 96/24, the sampling frequency is increased to 96 or 882 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 51 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 multFchannel 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, 882 kHz/24 bit multi-channel surround can
be achieved using normal CD/LD players (,_ 1).
Even with the high quality multFchannel 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 441 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
a disc recorded in DTS 96/24 are required.
"_2: The resolution is 24 or 20 bits, depending on the decoder
DTS CDs/LDs) and
(5) Home THX Cinema Surround
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 theaters and in your home theater, as
faithful as possible to what the director intended
Movie soundtracks are mixed in special movie theaters called dubbing stages and are designed to be played back in movie theaters with
similar equipment and conditions The soundtrack created for movie theaters is then transferred directly onto Laserdisc, VHS tape, DVD, etc,
and is not changed for playback in a small home theater environment
THX engineers developed patented technologies to accurately translate the sound from the movie theater environment
correcting the tonal and spatial errors that occur. On the AVR_5803, when the Home THX Cinema mode is on, THX processing
added after the Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Digital or DTS decoder:
Re-Equalization
into the home,
is automatically
TM
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 are designed to be played back in large mowe theaters using very different professional equipment Re-Equalizagon restores the
correct tonal balance for watching a movie soundtrack in a small home environment.
Timbre MatchingTM
The human ear changes our perception of a sound depending on the direction from which the sound is coming In a movie theater, there is
an array of surround speakers so that the surround information is all around you. In a home theater, only two speakers located to the side of
your head are used. The ]-mbre 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 TM
In a movie theater, a large number of surround speakers help create an enveloping surround sound experience, while in a home theater there
are usually only two speakers This can make the surround speakers sound like headphones that lack spaciousness and envelopment. The
surround sounds will also collapse into the closest speaker as you move away from the middle seating position Adaptive Decorrelagon 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 theater.
77
THX Ultra2
TM
Before any home theater component can be THX Ultra2 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 Ultra2 logo, which is your guarantee that the Home Theater
products you purchase will give you superb performance for many years to come THX Ultra2 requirements cover every aspect of the product
including power amplifier performance, pre-amplifier performance and operation, as well as hundreds of other parameters in both the digital
and analog domain
In addition to improvements to the power amplifier with respect to previous THX Ultra standards, two surround modes have been added: the
THX Ultra2 Cinema mode and the THX MusicMode
THX Ultra2 Cinema
THX Ultra2 Cinema mode plays B1 movies using all B speakers giving you the best possible movie watching experience. In this mode, new
THX processing blends the side surround speakers and back surround speakers providing the optimal mix of ambient and directional surround
sounds.
DTS-ES (Matrix and 61 Discrete) and Dolby Digital Surround EX encoded soundtracks wifl be automatically detected in Ultra2 Cinema mode
if the appropriate flag has been encoded
Some Dolby Digital Surround EX soundtracks are m_ssing the digital flag that allows automatic switching
If you know that the movie that you
are watching is encoded in Surround EX, you can manually select the THX Surround EX playback mode, otherwise THX Ultra2 Cinema mode
will apply processing to provide optimum replay.
THX MusicMode
For the replay of 5.1 multi_channel music the THX MusicMode should be selected. In this mode new THX processing
channels of all 51 encoded music sources such as DTS and Dolby Digital to provide a wide stable rear soundstage
is applied to the surround
Advanced Speaker Array
ASA processing offers maximum effect when two surround back speakers are used and the speakers are placed near each other
technology is used for Ultra2 Cinema, THX Music MODE and THX Surround EX.
This
Boundary Gain Compensation
When using a THX Ultra2 compatible subwoofer or a subwoofer with ultra-low frequency playback capabilities (with a frequency response
extending to approximately 20 Hz), the low frequency band may rise and the sound may seem booming. This technology compensates the
gain and makes the audible level flat.

EX
h 1999, a new surround system was launched simultaneously with the release of the movie "Star Wars Episode I" "Dolby Digital Surround
EX" is a new movie sound track that greatly enhances the sense of spatial expression and the positioning of the surround channel sound The
result is 360 degrees of movement and moving sound effects that seem to pass right over the listener's head.
This system was developed jointly by Lucasfilm THX and Dolby Laboratories, fusing Lucasfilm's idea of improving spatial expression and
achieving a uniform 360 degree sound positioning with Dolby Laboratories' matrix encoding technology
Emphasis was placed on compatibility
with the existing system Dolby Digital B 1-channel, and the new "surround back (SB) channel" was added to achieve improvements over the
conventional 51-channel system in terms of the positioning of the sound at the rear, the acoustic image of sound moving from the two sides
to the back as well as sound moving from the front to the center rear with the multi surround speaker systems used in movie theaters, thereby
enabling various types of surround sound
The surround back channel signal is a matrix-encoded signal inserted into both the Dolby Digital SL (surround left) and SR (surround right)
channels. Upon playback, the signals are decoded by a high precision digital matrix decoder within the Dolby Digital decoder into the SL, SR
and BB channels and output as 61 channels of signals. With the AVR-BBO3, the signals further undergo Home THX Cinema processing to
achieve a THX Surround EX system.
Even without the proper environment for playing the SB channel, Dolby Digital Surround EX signals are 100% compatible with existing B1channel playback systems, so they can be played as such. In this case, the SB channel signal is produced as a monaural signal from both the
SL and SR channels, so none of the signal components are missing. The effects specific to THX Surround EX (the sense of spatial expression
and the positioning of the sound), however, are the same as with conventional 5 1-channel surround systems.
