CAUTION: To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not remove cover (or back). No user serviceable parts inside. Refer servicing to qualified
service personnel.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this apparatus to rain or moisture.
Class II product
This equipment is a Class II or double
insulated electrical appliance. It has been
designed in such a way that it does not
require a safety connection to electrical
earth (‘ground’ in the U.S.).
The lightning flash with an arrowhead symbol within an equilateral triangle, is intended to alert the user to the presence of
uninsulated ‘dangerous voltage’ within the product’s enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric
shock to persons.
The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of important operating and
maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the product.
CAUTION: In Canada and the USA, to prevent electric shock, match the wide blade of the plug to the wide slot in the socket
and insert the plug fully into the socket.
Many of these items are common sense precautions but, for your own safety and to ensure that you do not damage the unit, we recommend that you read them.

audio and video outputs for PVR and VCR recording,
as well as two digital outputs for digital recording of
digitised audio sources (AVR600/AV888 only). DVDAudio and SACD can be connected via the multichannel
input. Control of the AVR500, AVR600 or the AV888 is
either by front panel control buttons, IR remote control
or RS232 port.
The AVR500/AVR600 is a high-quality and highperformance home-cinema processor and amplifier built
to Arcam’s quality design and manufacturing standards.
The closely related AV888 is a home-cinema processor
which provides multichannel input to an external
amplifier (such as Arcam’s P777). They both combine
digital processing with high-performance audio and
video components to form the locus of an unrivalled
home-entertainment centre.
The AVR500/AVR600 surround amplifier and AV888
AV processor are both designed to produce a level of
performance that will truly bring music and movies
to life.
The CR102 remote control supplied with either unit
is an eight-device ‘universal’ learning remote control
which is simple to use, and once set up is able to control
a complete system. It can be programmed using its vast
internal code library to control CD and DVD players,
PVRs, TVs and other devices.
The AVR500/AVR600/AV888 allow switching and
control of eight analogue and seven digital sources. The
AVR500 & AVR600 have internal AM, FM and DAB
radio and the AVR600 can accept a SiriusConnect™
Home Tuner input. The AVR600, AV888 and optionally
the AVR500 can accept networked and USB audio
sources – making it an ideal hub for both home-cinema
and two-channel stereo systems.
The installation of the AVR500, AVR600 or AV888 in a
listening room is an important process which requires
care at every stage. For this reason, the installation
information is very comprehensive and should be
followed carefully to achieve an unrivalled level of
performance.
Since many of these source components are also
capable of generating video signals, the AVR500/
AVR600 receiver and the AV888 processor units include
broadcast-quality switching for HDMI, Composite,
S-Video, RGB and Component video signals. There are

< Place the unit on a level, firm surface, avoiding
direct sunlight and sources of heat or damp.
< Do not place the unit on top of a power amplifier or
other source of heat.
< Do not place the unit in an enclosed space such as
a bookcase or closed cabinet unless there is good
provision for ventilation. The unit will run warm
during normal operation.
< Do not place any other component or item on top of
the amplifier as this may obstruct airflow around the
heat-sink, causing the amplifier to run hot. (The unit
placed on top of the amplifier would become hot,
too.)
< Make sure the remote-control receiver on the front
panel display is unobstructed, otherwise this will
impair the use of the remote-control. If line-of-sight
is impractical, a remote-control repeater can be used
with the rear panel connector (see page 17).
< Do not place your record deck on top of this
unit. Record decks are very sensitive to the noise
generated by mains power supplies which will be
heard as a background ‘hum’ if the record deck is too
close.
Power
Interconnect cables
Radio interference
The amplifier is supplied with a moulded mains plug
already fitted to the lead. Check that the plug supplied
fits your supply – should you require a new mains lead,
please contact your Arcam dealer.
We recommend the use of high-quality screened cables
that are designed for the particular application. Other
cables will have different impedance characteristics
that will degrade the performance of your system (for
example, do not use cabling intended for video use to
carry audio signals). All cables should be kept as short
as is practically possible.
The AVR500, AVR600 and AV888 are audio devices
containing microprocessors and other digital
electronics. They have been designed to very high
standards of electromagnetic compatibility.
It is good practice when connecting your equipment to
make sure that the mains power-supply cabling is kept
as far away as possible from your audio cables. Failure to
do so may result in unwanted noise in the audio signals.
If the unit causes interference to radio or television
reception (which can be determined by switching the
unit off and on), the following measures should be
taken:
< Re-orient the receiving antenna or route the antenna
cable of the affected receiver as far as possible from
the unit and its cabling.
< Relocate the receiver with respect to the unit.
< Connect the affected device and the unit to different
mains outlets.
If your mains supply voltage or mains plug is different,
please contact your Arcam dealer immediately.
The amplifier can be switched for operation between
195–265V (switch position 230V) and 85–132V (switch
position 115V).
NOTE
Ensure that the unit is switched off and the power
lead removed before changing the position of the
voltage range switch.
For information on speaker cabling, please refer to the
‘Speakers’ section, beginning on page 18.
Push the IEC plug end of the power cable into the
socket on the back of the amplifier, making sure that it
is pushed in firmly. Plug the other end of the cable into
your mains socket and, if necessary, switch the socket
on.
This is a Class A product. In a domestic environment
this product may cause radio interference, in which case
the user may be required to take adequate measures.
If the problem persists, please contact your Arcam
dealer.
The amplifier can be turned on using the power switch
on the front panel. While switched on, the front panel
LED will glow green.
Standby power
The unit can be switched into standby mode using
the 2 button on the CR102 remote control. While in
standby mode the front panel LED will glow red and
power consumption is around 3 watts.
While in Standby mode, it may be possible to hear a
slight residual hum coming from the mains transformer
inside the amplifier. This is perfectly normal. However,
if the unit is to be left unused for an extended period,
we recommend that you disconnect it from the mains
supply to save power.

Product operation is broadly similar for the AVR500,
AVR600 and AV888, however, the AVR600 & AV888
have a greater variety of input connectors and a different
rear panel layout. For this reason, two sections of
connection diagrams and are presented. Please see Page
8 for the AVR600 & AV888. For the AVR500 please skip
ahead to Page 14.
General
The inputs are named to make it easier to reference
connected devices (e.g. ‘DVD’ or ‘VCR’). They all have the
same input circuit (with the exception of the ‘phono’
input), so there is no reason why you should not connect
a different device to any of the inputs. For example, if
you had two DVD players and the AV input was not
being used, then the second DVD player could be
connected to the AV input.
When connecting a video source, its audio must be
connected to the corresponding sockets. For example,
if you a had a satellite decoder plugged into a SAT video
input, the audio must be connected to the SAT audio
inputs!
The hierarchy for video connections for best quality is
as follows;
< HDMI
< Component/RGB
< S-Video
< Composite.
You should connect as many of these as possible. The
unit will automatically select the best quality connection
for the source available. For any video source to be
available in Zone 2 you must have an S-Video or
Composite connection between the unit and the source.
Making connections
Important notes about Component/RGB
video inputs and outputs
< When you connect your devices to these
connectors, take care to follow the letter/colour
coding for each input. No damage will occur but
incorrectly coloured or unstable pictures will
result.
< The Component video inputs have sufficient
bandwidth for NTSC (525/60) or PAL (625/50)
video and HDTV video signals.
< Wherever possible, connect both the analogue
and digital outputs of digital sources. This enables
use of a digital input for the main zone and the
corresponding analogue input for recording onto an
analogue tape deck, VCR or PVR, or for the Zone 2
or 3 output.
< Take care to place cables as far from any power
supply cabling as is practicable, to reduce hum and
other noise problems.

If you are connecting up to an RGB source you will
also need to connect the source’s Composite output to
the unit’s Composite input to act as a video sync. The
Composite signal should be on the same named input as
the RGB signals.
These inputs are suitable for connection to source
devices which output Component (YUV or YPbPr) or
RGB high quality analogue video signals. These signals
are usually available from DVD players, set-top boxes or
games consoles.
RGB video outputs on source equipment are often on
SCART connectors. You will need to use a SCART to
‘RGB+Sync on phono’ breakout cable, available from
your Arcam dealer.

When a digital source is selected,
the digital output will send an exact
copy of the incoming digital signal. For example, for a
5.1 digital source, the digital output will also be in 5.1
format.
When an analogue-only source is selected, this is
digitized by the unit and routed to the digital outputs.
These outputs are muted if a source is selected where the
HDMI connection is used and is transmitting HD audio.
The digital audio from the HDMI link will not be routed
to these outputs.
This input can be connected
directly to a record deck

This multichannel analogue
audio input can be connected to
a source device which outputs
surround sound on its analogue

pass through any of the audio
processing in the unit, therefore
functions such as speaker size
and distance from the listening
position should be copied from the Setup menus into the
Setup menus of your multichannel source. Note however
that speaker level trims are applied to the MCH input
on the unit. Therefore speaker level trim settings on

In weak signal areas, or for optimal FM radio reception,
a roof- or loft-mounted aerial is advised as this will give
superior reception.
In some areas, cable radio may be available or, in an
apartment building, a distributed aerial system may
be installed. In either of these cases you should have
sockets in your home marked FM or VHF (do not use
those marked TV); these should be connected to the FM
coaxial connector on the rear of the AVR500/AVR600.

Connecting speakers
– AVR500 & AVR600
The AVR500/AVR600 allows you to connect up to
seven speakers and three active subwoofers in the main
system. The output channels correspond to speakers
installed in the front left, centre, front right, surround
left, surround right, surround back left, surround back
right and an active subwoofer.
The configuration and placement of your speakers
is very important. All speakers, with the exception of
the subwoofer, should be arranged around your normal
viewing/listening position. The subwoofer should be
placed in a position which gives an even frequency
response in all listening positions. Incorrect placement
leads to bass boom in some areas. Often the only
way to find a good position for your subwoofer is by
experimentation. A good place to start experimenting
is close to a wall but at least 1m away from any corners.
You can also consult your subwoofer handbook for
placement suggestions.
Speaker cables
To connect each of the
speakers, unscrew the
corresponding terminals
on the back of the AVR500/
AVR600, insert the speaker
wires through the hole in each
post and screw the terminals
back up. Make sure that the
red (positive/+) terminal of
the speaker is connected to the
red (positive/+) terminal on
the back panel, and the black
(negative/–) terminal of the
speaker is connected to the
black (negative/–) terminal on
the back panel.
The speakers should be connected to the amplifier using
good-quality, high-purity, low impedance copper cables.
Cheap speaker cables should be avoided – they are a
false economy and can significantly degrade the sound
quality.
The cable runs to the speakers should be as short as
practicable. Connections to the speaker terminals
should always be finger tight, whether using bare wires
or spade connectors.
It is important that no stray
strands of wire from these
connections are allowed to
touch another cable or the product casing. Failure to
ensure this can cause a short circuit and damage your
AVR500/AVR600.
Do not over-tighten the loudspeaker terminals, or use a
wrench, pliers, etc., as this could damage the terminals
and this would not be covered under the product’s
warranty.

SUBWOOFER OUTPUT

E-23
Connecting subwoofers
The AVR600 and the AV888 allow up to three active
subwoofers to be connected to the SW1, SW2 or SW3
outputs. The AVR500 has two subwoofer connections.
See your subwoofer handbook for the correct setting up
and connection for your particular subwoofer.
English
speakers
Centre
Subwoofer
The centre speaker allows for a more realistic
reproduction of dialogue. The centre speaker
should have a similar tonal balance to the front
left and right speakers and be positioned at a
similar height.
A subwoofer will greatly improve the bass performance of
your system. This is useful for reproducing special cinema
effects, especially where a dedicated LFE (Low Frequency
Effects) channel is available, as with many discs encoded
with Dolby or DTS technologies.
More than one subwoofer unit may be required for larger
installations, particularly in rooms of a timber frame
construction. Multiple subwoofers need care in placement
because there may be cancellation effects between the
units and you may require expert advice.
Front left and right
Position your front left and right speakers to
achieve a good stereo image for normal musical
reproduction as well as for the multichannel
modes. If they are placed too close together there
will be a lack of spaciousness; if they are placed
too far apart a stereo image will appear to have a
large ‘hole’ in the middle and will be presented in
two halves. If there is no practical alternative to
placing the speakers widely apart, this effect can
be overcome in music reproduction by using the
centre sound extraction from the left and right
speakers (see Dolby Pro Logic II Music mode).
Surround left and right
The surround left and right speakers reproduce
the ambient sound and effects present in a
multichannel home cinema system and should be
installed slightly higher than the listener’s ears.
Surround back left and right
The surround back left and right speakers
are used to add extra depth and better
sound localisation and should be installed
approximately one metre higher than the
listener’s ears. Place the two surround
back speakers such that there is an arc of
approximately 150 degrees between each
surround back speaker and the centre speaker.
The surround back speakers should face the front
of the room as shown in the diagram to provide
the largest ‘sweet spot’.
E-24
Single surround back centre speaker
It is also possible to use a single surround back
speaker positioned centrally behind the listening
position instead of two. In this case connect it to the
SBL speaker output. Follow the instructions in the
‘Spkr Types’ section of the Setup Menus for how to
configure the AVR500/AVR600/AV888 for this setup.

Selecting a source
To select a particular source, press the –input or
input + buttons until that source is shown on the front
panel display, or (if available) press the corresponding
source button on the remote. The following sources are
available:
For information display we recommend you use the
OSD (On-Screen Display) on your display device
whenever possible.
Switching on
Press the front panel power button in. The power LED
will glow orange, the front display shows the word
‘ARCAM’, followed by the volume setting and the name of
the selected input. After initialization is complete, the
power LED changes colour to green.
Please wait until the unit has finished initialising before
operating the unit. It is recommended that if the unit is
switched off, you should wait at least 10 seconds before
switching the unit back on.
Standby
The unit has a standby mode which can be entered
by pressing Standby on the remote control. When in
standby mode, the display is blank and the power LED
glows red.
While in Standby mode, it may be possible to hear a
slight residual hum coming from the mains transformer
inside the amplifier. This is perfectly normal. However,
if the unit is to be left unused for an extended period,
we recommend that you disconnect it from the mains
supply to save power.

available on your unit.
The display window shows the currently selected source
and the last selected information view setting (this
information line can be changed using the INFO button).
The active zones (Z1, Z2 or Z3) are highlighted – the
example screen above shows that only Z1 (i.e. Zone1) is
active. The current volume setting (70.0dB in the above
example) is also displayed.
Upon selecting a source, the unit will normally select an
active digital input in preference to an analogue input.
If you want to override the digital input and select the
analogue input, set the Audio Source to Analogue in the
Input Config. menu (see page E-41). Some inputs (AM/FM,
Phono, MCH, Sirius, iPod) do not have a digital input.
The processing mode and Stereo Direct functions are
remembered and recalled for each individual input.
The MCH input is intended for direct analogue passthrough of DVD Audio or SACD sources. Apart from
E-25
volume control and level trim, no processing modes
are possible on this input, including bass management
and delays. Please set bass management, speaker size
and speaker delays in the source player. You can copy
the distances and relative speaker levels from the Setup
menus in the AVR500, AVR600 or AV888.
Tape operation (AVR600/AV888 only)
Three analogue audio outputs are provided for
recording, VCR, PVR and Tape out. The selected analogue
input are routed to each of these outputs.
If the VCR input is selected, the VCR Out output
is muted to prevent feedback loops in recording
equipment. Similarly the PVR Out and Tape Out outputs
are muted when their respective inputs are selected to
prevent feedback.
VCR operation (AVR600/AV888 only)
Two outputs are provided for recording (Composite
and S-Video only), VCR and PVR Out. The selected video
input is routed to each of these outputs.
Stereo Direct
To listen to a pure analogue stereo input, press the
Direct button. The Stereo Direct mode automatically
bypasses all processing and any surround functions. In
direct mode, digital processing is shut down to improve
the sound quality and reduces digital noise with the unit
to an absolute minimum.
Note: when Stereo Direct mode is selected, no
digital output is available and no bass management
is performed, meaning that bass signals will not be
redirected to a subwoofer.
Volume control
It is important to realise that the level of the volume
indicator is not an accurate indication of the power
delivered to your loudspeakers. The amplifier often
delivers its full output power long before the volume
control reaches its maximum position, particularly when
listening to heavily recorded music. In comparison,
some movie sound tracks can appear very quiet, as
many directors like to keep maximum levels in reserve
for special effect sequences.

Inserting batteries into the
remote control
The CR102 is a sophisticated ‘universal’ backlit remote
control that can control up to eight devices. It is preprogrammed for use with the AVR500, AVR600, AV888
and many other Arcam products (FM/DAB tuners, CD
players and DVD players).
With its extensive built-in library of codes, it can also
be used with thousands of third party audio-visual
components – TVs, satellite and set-top boxes, PVRs,
CD players, etc. See the list of codes at the back of this
handbook, beginning on page 60.
The CR102 is a ‘learning’ remote, so you can teach it
almost any function from an old single-device remote.
You can also program the CR102 to issue a sequence of
commands (‘macros’) from a single button press.
1. Open the battery compartment by pressing the
button on the back of the handset.
2. Insert four ‘AAA’ batteries into the battery
compartment – two facing the top of the unit,
and two facing the end, as in the diagram.
3. Lower the end cap onto the plastic locating plate
in the handset. This acts as a hinge, and you
can now push the end cap firmly into its locked
position with a click.
Notes on batteries:
<Incorrect use of batteries can result in hazards such
Using the remote control

available. Please consult your dealer for further
information.)
< Remote operation may become unreliable if
strong sunlight or fluorescent light is shining on
the remote sensor of the unit.
< Replace the batteries when you notice a

<Do not mix old and new batteries together.
<Do not use non-identical batteries together –
although they may look similar, different batteries
may have different voltages.
<Ensure the plus (+) and minus (-) ends of each
battery match the indications in the battery
compartment.
<Remove batteries from equipment that is not going
to be used for a month or more.
<When disposing of used batteries, please comply
with governmental or local regulations that apply in
your country or area.
Backlight
A blue backlight comes on for five seconds whenever
a key is pressed. This helps you use the handset in
subdued lighting conditions. It may be possible to hear a
quiet tone being emitted from the remote control when
the backlight is on. This is perfectly normal.
Power LED blinks
Short blinks indicate a valid key press.
Multiple short blinks convey information (such as a
device code) or signal the beginning and successful
completion of a programming sequence.
Device Mode / Source keys
As the CR102 can control your AVR500, AVR600 or
AV888 as well as a range of other equipment, many of
the buttons have more than one function depending on
the ‘device mode’ selected on the remote control.
The Device Mode keys (shown below) select the source
on the AVR500/AVR600/AV888. If one of these keys is
pressed briefly, a command is transmitted to change the
source on the unit. Also the functionality of the remote
control changes to operate the selected source device. It’s
like having eight different remotes in your hand!
Long blinks indicate an invalid key press or entry.
The symbol ‘*’ is used in the manual to indicate a
power LED blink.
Timeouts and unassigned keys
Time out – After 10 seconds the CR102 exits the
programming state and returns to normal operation.
Stuck key timeout – After any key is pressed
continuously for 30 seconds, the CR102 stops sending
IR transmission to conserve battery life. The CR102
remains off until all keys are released.
Unassigned keys – the CR102 ignores any unassigned
key presses for a particular Device Mode and does not
transmit IR.
Low voltage indicator
When the batteries are running down, the IR transmit
indicator on the CD102 (the LED under the Power
button) flashes five times whenever you press a button:
*****
If this happens, please fit four new AAA alkaline
batteries as soon as possible.
In AV mode 0 issues the TV ‘channel down’ command.
The CR102 remains in the last selected Device Mode
so it is not necessary to press a Device Mode key before
every command key if all you are doing is playing or
skipping tracks on a CD, for example.

Volume control
By default, the CR102 is set up so that the volume
control buttons always control the volume of the
AVR500/AVR600/AV888, regardless of which Device
Mode the remote is currently set for. This is known as
volume ‘punch through’.
For example, if you are listening to a CD, you will
probably have the CR102 in CD Device Mode to control
the CD player. You can use the volume controls on the
remote directly to adjust the volume of the AVR500/
AVR600/AV888 without first having to press A to put
the remote into AMP Device Mode. The volume buttons
‘punch through’ the CD Device Mode on the remote to
the AMP Device Mode. Volume ‘punch through’ can be
disabled individually for any Device Mode if desired.
If you press and hold a Device Mode key for about four
seconds, you change the Device Mode of the CR102
without changing the signal source on the AVR500/
AVR600/AV888. This can also be done by pressing S
followed by a Device Mode key (within two seconds).
These two methods allow you to change which device
the CR102 controls without also changing the AVR500/
AVR600/AV888 source, allowing uninterrupted
listening.
Each Device Mode changes the behaviour of many
of the CR102 keys to control the source device
appropriately. For example:
In CD mode 0 plays the previous CD track.

Here is a specific example of how to program the a
key to control an Addison television. The principles for
controlling other devices are exactly the same.
1. Make sure your device is switched on (not just on
standby).
2. Find the correct Device Code table (e.g. TV) for the
type of device you want to control from the CR102.
3. Find the row containing the codes for the
manufacturer of your device (e.g. Addison) (page
58). The most popular code is listed first.
4. Press the appropriate Device Mode key (e.g. a) on
the CR102.
5. Press and hold S until the red Power LED blinks
twice: * * (It actually blinks once when you press
the key, then twice after about three seconds).
6. Enter the first four-digit device code using the
number keys. The power key blinks twice: * *.
7. Aim the CR102 at the device and press P. If the
device switches off, the setup is complete.
8. Turn your device back on and test all the CR102’s
functions to ensure they are working properly.
9. Important! Write your device code down on the
right hand side of the page so you can remember it if
you ever reset the CR102.

steps until one of the device codes listed for your
brand works.
<If none of the codes listed for your brand operates
your device, or if your brand is not listed at all, try
the Library Search Method described in the next
section.
Notes:
<Some codes are quite similar. If your device does not
respond or is not functioning properly with one of
the codes, try another code listed under your brand.
<If your device’s original remote control does not have
a P (POWER) key, press $ instead of P when
setting up your device.
<Remember to press the corresponding device key
before operating your device.
<Many TVs do not switch on pressing P. Please try
pressing a number key (‘channel select’) to switch
your TV back on.
<To search for the code for another device follow the
instructions above, but press the appropriate device
key instead of a during step 2.
Library Search allows you to scan through all the
codes contained in the CR102’s memory. It can take a
lot longer than the previous method, so only use this
method if:
<Your device does not respond to the CR102 after you
have tried all the codes listed for your brand.
<Your brand is not listed at all in the Device Code
tables.
Example: To search for a TV code
1. Switch your TV on (not standby) and aim the
CR102 at it.
2. Press a on your CR102.
3. Press and hold S until the power LED blinks twice.
4. Press 9 9 1. The power LED key blinks twice:
* *.
5. Press P.
6. Aim the CR102 at your Television and press [
repeatedly until your Television turns off.
Every time you press [ the CR102 sends out a
POWER signal from the next code contained in its
memory. In the worst case, you may have to press this
key up to 150 times, so patience is required! If you
skip past a code, step back by pressing ]. Remember
to keep pointing the CR102 at your Television while
pressing this key.
7. As soon as your television turns off, press S to

Once you have set up your CR102, you can blink back
your device set-up codes for future reference.
Example: To blink back your Television code
1. Press the appropriate Device Mode key (e.g. a)
once.
2. Press and hold S until the red Power LED blinks
twice * * (It actually blinks once when you press
the key, then twice after about three seconds).
3. Press 9 9 0. The P key blinks twice.
4. For the first digit of your four-digit code, press 1 and
count all the red blinks. If there are no blinks, the
digit is ‘0’.
5. For the second, third and fourth digits, repeat the
previous step, pressing 2, 3, or 4 in order.
Now you have the four-digit code.

essential
setup
Before you use your AVR500, AVR600 or AV888 it is
essential that you enter some information into the Setup
menus about your speaker configuration. This allows
the unit to process any surround sound digital source
to exactly match your system and give you the ultimate
surround sound experience.
Speaker types
You need to set the type of speakers that you have
connected to your AVR500/AVR600 (or connected
indirectly to your AV888):
There are three pieces of vital information which are
outlined in the sections: ‘Speaker Types’, ‘Speaker
Distances’ and ‘Speaker Levels’.
Large
capable of full frequency range reproduction
Small
The way you enter this information manually into the
unit is given later in the ‘Setup Menus’ section on page
34. The settings can also be established automatically
using the Arcam Auto Speaker Setup function. However
it is important to understand why these speaker settings
must be entered, which is why this section is presented
first.
not capable of full frequency range
reproduction at the low frequency end
None
speaker not present in your configuration
The terms ‘Large’ and ‘Small’ do not necessarily relate to
the physical size of your speakers. As a rule of thumb,
if a speaker cannot reproduce a flat frequency response
down to about 40Hz (and very few can!) it is often better
to consider them as ‘Small’ for setup purposes of home
cinema.
When a speaker is set to ‘Small’, very low frequency
sounds are redirected away from that speaker to a ‘Large’
speaker or a subwoofer, which are far better suited to
reproducing these low frequency sounds.
Note that it is not possible to set all speakers to
‘Small’ unless there is a subwoofer in your speaker
configuration. If you do not have a subwoofer, you will
be forced to set your front speakers to ‘Large’.
(Advanced users may wish to automatically override the
‘Small’ speaker setting for purely stereo music listening
when not watching movies. This can be achieved in the
‘Input Config.’ menu – see page 36.)
Single Surround Back speaker
If you have just one Surround Back speaker in your
configuration instead of two, ensure it is connected to
the SBL speaker connector and set Surr. Back L/R in
the Spkr Types menu to either ‘1 Small’ or ‘1 Large’ as
appropriate.
Crossover frequency
If you have set any speakers as being Small, then you will
be required to set a value for the crossover frequency.
This is the frequency below which signals are filtered
away from these Small speakers and redirected to Large
speakers or the subwoofer (if present). A frequency
of 80Hz is often a good starting point, however you
will probably have to experiment with different values
to find the best value for your system or consult your
speaker handbook.
E-36
MCH sub level
If a subwoofer is present, this setting allows for a 10dB
compensation on the subwoofer output when using the
MCH input as required by many DVD-A players with
audio outputs.
Use Surround Back channels
If not used in the main zone, it is possible to assign the
Surround Back channels to bi-amp the Front Left/Right
channels or to provide an amplified output to Zone 2.
Speaker Distances
It is essential for the distance from each speaker to the
listening position to be accurately measured and entered
into the ‘Setup’ menu. This ensures that the sounds from
the various speakers arrive at the listening position at
the correct time to recreate a realistic surround effect.
The distance can be entered in centimetres or inches.
Speaker Levels
Finally the levels of all the speakers in the system need
to be adjusted to match each other at the listening
position, again to create a proper surround effect. To
help with this the AVR500, AVR600 or AV888 can
generate a test noise for each speaker which should be
measured with a sound pressure level (SPL) meter. The
meter should be set to ‘C’ weighting and slow response.
The level of noise measured at the listening position
from each speaker should be adjusted on the Speaker
Trims page of the Setup menu so that the meter reads
75dB SPL. It does not matter what the system volume
setting of the AVR500, AVR600 or AV888 is before
turning the test noise on as the volume setting is overridden for the duration of the speaker noise test.
There are several basic SPL meters on the market at
reasonable prices aimed at home cinema enthusiasts.
Check your local technology store, search online or ask
your dealer.
If you do not have an SPL meter, you can try to adjust
the noise level of each speaker by ear. In this case it is
not possible to adjust the speakers to the absolute 75dB
SPL volume level, but you should aim for all speakers
sounding equally loud. Setting speaker test noise levels
by ear is not recommended as it is very difficult to do
accurately, but is often better than doing nothing at all!
auto speaker
setup
There is a proprietary automatic loudspeaker setup
function built into your AVR500, AVR600 or AV888.
The Arcam Auto Speaker Setup function attempts to set
all the essential speaker settings for all the speakers in
your system. It also calculates room equalisation (Room
EQ) filter values to remove some of the worst effects of
resonant frequencies in the listening room.
Your AVR500/AVR600/AV888 package is supplied with
a calibration microphone, which should be inserted into
the AUX jack socket on the front panel and positioned at
the main listening position. This microphone picks up
the special calibration tones generated by the speakers
when Auto Speaker Setup is run. The AVR500/AVR600/
AV888 then analyses the signal and computes:
<which speakers are present,
<speaker type,
<speaker distance,
<speaker level,
<crossover frequency to the subwoofer (or large front
speakers if no subwoofer is present),
<problem resonant frequencies in the room which
need control by filtering.
It also warns if any of the speakers are too close to the
microphone or if the measured tone is clipped.
To help the system be as accurate as possible when
performing Auto Speaker Setup, there are a few
guidance rules that should be followed:
<Minimise any background sounds in the listening
room and other nearby rooms.
<Close all windows and doors in the listening room.
<Turn off all fans including air-conditioning systems.
<If holding the microphone in the hand rather than
mounting on a tripod or similar, keep your hand and
fingers still to avoid generating ‘handling noise’.
<Position the set up microphone pointing upwards at
roughly head height in the normal listening position.
It is not necessary to point the microphone directly
at the speaker generating the test tone. (It helps if
you are able to position the microphone exactly
where your head would normally be for listening,
with the microphone in direct unobstructed view of
all speakers.)
<If your system includes an active subwoofer, start
by setting its output level / gain control to a value
halfway between maximum and minimum.
When activated, a calibration tone is played through
each channel in turn, including the subwoofer channel.
The calibration tone cycles round each of the speakers
twice. If you do not have a full 7.1 speaker configuration
there will be periods of silence between some speaker
channels. Follow the ‘progress’ information on-screen.
Using a subwoofer
After all the channels have been measured, a summary
of the speaker configuration will be displayed on-screen.
You can then choose to accept the settings, re-measure
your system again or cancel Auto Speaker Setup without
storing the settings.
Auto Speaker Setup will attempt to choose a crossover
frequency that allows the smoothest low frequency
transition from the main speakers to the subwoofer.
However if this does not produce pleasing results we
recommend manually trying other crossover frequencies
to find something more to your preference.
The Auto Speaker Setup function is found within the
Setup menus, see page 37. By default, Room EQ is not
applied to any of the source inputs. You should enable
Room EQ on inputs you think benefit from this feature,
as required, by listening when playing typical source
material through each input. This is enabled from within
the Input Config menu.
While room equalisation can help to reduce problems
with listening room acoustics, it is usually far better
to try to solve these problems with the room directly.
Proper loudspeaker positioning, acoustic wall
treatments and moving the listening position away from
walls should produce far better results overall. However
it may be difficult to do this in a home environment, so
Room EQ is your next best choice.
Problems
We advise you to look over the reported measurements
on the screen following Auto Speaker Setup for any
obviously incorrect results, in particular to ensure the
reported speakers match your configuration and that the
speaker distances to the listening position appear look
roughly correct. If the results are not what you expected
re-run Auto Speaker Setup.
The Auto Speaker Setup function is normally quite
accurate but occasionally false results can be generated.
Problems may be as a result of:
<external sounds or rumbling / handling noises
picked up by the microphone
<sound reflections off hard surfaces (e.g. windows or
walls) close to the listening position,
<very strong acoustic resonances within the room.
If you are still experiencing difficulties or you wish to
have the most accurate results for ultimate surround
performance, we recommend using the manual method
of establishing speaker distances and levels.
E-37
If your system includes an active subwoofer you may
need to re-run Auto Speaker Setup with the subwoofer
output level / gain control set to a higher or lower value,
if the summary screen reports problems setting the
subwoofer up.
See the next sections for information of how to enter or
change speaker settings manually.

Auto speaker setup
setup menus
The Setup menus allow you to configure all aspects
of your AVR500, AVR600 or AV888. The next few
pages will go through the menu items and explain their
function. The Setup menus will probably look quite
daunting if you are new to setting up home cinema, but
the majority of them need only be configured once when
you first install the system (or if your system changes or
you move house!)
Menu panel
Adjustment panel
The left-hand panel lists the setup
screens available for adjustment. The
selected menu is highlighted with a grey
band.
The upper right-hand panel lists the
parameters you can change as a user.
The selected line is highlighted with
a black band. Lines that cannot be
selected are greyed-out.
The only way to view the Setup menus is on your display
device (TV or projector) using the on-screen display
(OSD) capability of the unit. To view the OSD for the
initial setting up, connect any of the video outputs to
your display device. You do not need to have a video
source connected to the video inputs.
Entering Setup mode
To enter the setup menu, press the menu button on the
remote control or font panel. The front panel display
shows ‘MENU’ and the setup menu (pictured right) is
displayed.

The default AVR500/AVR600/AV888 output video
resolution when first powered up out of the box is
525-line/60Hz NTSC for analogue video and 480i/60
for digital video. This has been chosen as most display
devices can synchronise to this automatically. This can
be changed in the Video Outputs section of the Setup
Menus.
Œ  ˆ Ž
Help screen
The lower right-hand panel gives a short
help text for the feature being adjusted.
If the output resolution and frame rate is forced to a
setting your display device does not support, the picture
may become unstable or may not display at all. To reset
the output video resolution and frame rate to the default
values to restore the display, press and hold the OK
button for three seconds.
Navigating the setup menu
… using the remote control
The setup menu can be navigated by using the cursor
(arrow) keys on the remote control. This is by far the
easiest method.
1. To enter the setup menu, press the menu button
(which is located immediately under the navigation
buttons).
2. Use the B and C keys to navigate up and down
the main section headings in the left-hand panel.
3. Once you have the main section that you require
highlighted, use the E key to enter the section.
4. Use the B and C keys to navigate up and
down the section settings in the left-hand panel.
Some settings may be greyed out. These are either
for information only (e.g. incoming sampling
E-38
frequency) or are not currently selectable (e.g.
network IP address when DHCP is used). Scroll bars
on the sides of the right hand panel indicate your
position in the settings list where there are more
items than can be displayed at once.
5. Pressing OK selects a setting to change it, pressing OK
again de-selects the setting.
6. At any time, press the menu button to exit the menu.
Any changes to settings are saved.
… using the keys on the front panel
The front panel controls can be used to configure the
unit. Follow the instructions for using the remote
control, in this case using input– for down, input+ for
up, info for left and mode for right.
Entering Setup mode
Before entering the menu, select the input that you wish
to change (e.g. dvd). To enter the setup menu, press the
menu button on the remote control or font panel. The
front panel display shows ‘MENU’ and the setup menu
(pictured right) is displayed. Press the remote control E
key to enter the Input Config menu then use the Ckey
to navigate down to the Video Source option.
Selecting the video source
Each input on the AVR500/AVR600/AV888 has multiple
connection possibilities for both audio and video,
including HDMI, Component Video, digital audio and
analogue audio. When an input is selected, by default
the AVR500/AVR600/AV888 will scan all possible video
and audio connectors for that input until a valid signal is
detected. This ensures that the input is found no matter
what connection is used, however, it increases the time
that it takes to activate the input.
For fastest operation, set the Audio Source and Video
Source to the connection type you are using: HDMI,
Component, S-Video or Composite for video and
HDMI, Digital or Analogue for audio. The AVR500/
AVR600/AV888 will then select this connection
Once the Video Source option is highlighted as shown,
press the ok key to select it for modification. Use the
B and C keys to select from the list the video type
you are using on this source.
< Auto: (default) the unit scans through the various
video input connectors/formats for the current
source and selects the highest quality available for
this source. This setting increases switching time.
< HDMI: the unit is forced to use the HDMI video
input for this source.
< Component: the unit is forced to use the
Component/RGB video input for this source.
< S-Video: the unit is forced to use the S-Video input
for this source.
< Composite: the unit is forced to use the Composite
video input for this source.

The audio and video settings on this page of the Setup
menu can be tailored specifically and independently to
the currently selected input.
When a different input is selected on the Input line, all
the input-specific settings for that input are displayed
below it. These settings are applied to the named Input
only and are stored in memory and recalled each time
the unit is powered up and whenever that input is
selected.
Input – The currently selected input connectors to
which the settings below relate.
Name – The display name of the input. You can change
the name of any input to more closely match your setup.
For example, if you had two satellite receivers, you could
connect the main receiver to the Sat audio and video
input connectors and change the Name to ‘SAT 1’. You
could then connect the second satellite receiver to the
VCR audio and video input connectors, but change the
VCR Name to ‘SAT 2’. It is then clearer to users of your
AVR500/AVR600/AV888 which inputs they wish to
select when scrolling though.
Lip Sync – Each input can have its own setting
to add a time delay between the audio and video
signals to compensate for the sound and picture not
being synchronised. This is normally required when
video processing is used in the system for scaling or
de-interlacing video. The range of lip sync delay is –5 to
+220 milliseconds.
The lip sync adjustment can only correct for delayed
video. If the audio is late set lip sync to its minimum.
Mode – Sets the initial audio decode mode for stereo
sources on this input.
<Last Mode recalls the last used setting for this
input when a stereo source was applied. See section
‘Multichannel source modes’ on page 41 for more
information.
Ext. Mode – Sets the initial audio decode mode for
multichannel digital sources on this input.
<Last Mode recalls the last used setting for this
input when a stereo source was applied. See section
‘Multichannel source modes’ on page 41 for more
information.
Treble –
Bass –
These allow you to alter the bass and treble tone controls
for all currently active speakers for each individual
input. For example, if your PVR source sounds a little
bass light, you can always correct for this by selecting
PVR on the Input line at the top of this menu and add
2 or 3dB to the Bass control. Then, whenever the PVR
input is selected, the bass is automatically boosted for as
long as that input is selected.
Room EQ – When the Auto Speaker Setup function is
run it also calculates Room Equalisation coefficients to
remove some of the worst effects of resonant frequencies
of the room at the listening position. By default Room
EQ is not applied to any of the source inputs, however
you can enable them on a per-input basis as you wish.
<Not Calculated: (Information only) Auto Speaker
Setup has not been run or has errors so cannot be
selected.
<On: Room EQ is applied to the current source.
<Off: Room EQ is not applied to the current source.
Input Trim – Sets the maximum analogue input
signal level (sensitivity) on this input before the ADC
(Analogue-to-Digital converter) signal path clips.
Options are 0.5, 1, 2 and 4 volts RMS maximum input.
The default is 2Vrms maximum.
For example, analogue sources with low output levels
may benefit by choosing the 1V maximum setting,
or the 0.5V maximum setting if the source has a
very low output. This helps maximise signal-to-noise
performance of the unit and also helps keep the various
analogue sources sounding about the same level for any
given volume control setting.
Dolby Volume –Dolby Volume is an intelligent system
that improves the perceived audio frequency response
at lower listening levels and corrects for volume
inconsistencies between sources (e.g. a rock radio
station and a DVD) and between programming (e.g. a
TV show and advertisement breaks).
<Off: (default) Dolby Volume is not applied to this
input.
<Cinema: enables Dolby Volume for this source and
configures the input for audio which comes mostly
from movie soundtracks.
<Music: enables Dolby Volume for this source and
configures the input for audio which comes from
other sources (CD, TV, Satellite, Tuner, etc.).
Dolby Leveller – This setting of Dolby Volume controls
how closely quiet and loud sources and programme
content are matched to each other, based on the
ear’s perception of loudness. The range of values is
0 (minimal levelling) to 10 (maximum levelling).
The default setting is 9, however we recommend
experimenting with lower values if all your source
material is more closely matched in level. If the Volume
Leveller function is set off, no level matching between
sources and programme material is performed. Note
however that turning the Dolby Leveller setting of Dolby
Volume to ‘Off ’ is not the same as turning the entire
function of Dolby Volume to ‘Off ’, as volume related
frequency response processing is still active. See Dolby
Volume on page 42 for more information.
DV Calib. Offset – The Calibration Offset parameter of
Dolby Volume allows you to compensate for speaker
efficiencies and listening position. The default value
is 0 and this should normally produce a good result
when the speaker levels of the AVR600 (or AV888 and
amplifier combination) are set using a sound pressure
level meter.
See the Dolby Volume section on page 42 for further
information on Calibration Offset.
Surround EX – Sets how the unit should configure
its decode mode when a Dolby Digital EX bitstream
is received. Note that this setting only applies if you
have Surround Back loudspeakers. You may wish to
experiment with these two decode modes to see which
you prefer with Dolby Digital EX encoded material.
Options are Auto DD EX, Auto PLIIx and Manual.
< Auto DD EX: When a Dolby Digital EX-flagged
bitstream is detected, the decode mode
automatically changes to Dolby Digital EX. This can
be temporarily overridden by pressing the MODE
button on the remote or front panel.
< Auto PLIIx: When a Dolby Digital EX-flagged
bitstream is detected, the decode mode
automatically changes to Pro Logic IIx Movie. This
can be temporarily overridden by pressing the MODE
button on the remote or front panel.
< Manual: The received Dolby Digital EX is treated
as if it is an ordinary Dolby Digital stream in that it
does not automatically select the EX or PLIIx decode
modes. Instead, the previously used decode mode
for a multichannel digital source on this input is
applied. However, either of the EX or PLIIx decode
modes can be applied manually by pressing the
MODE button.
Stereo Mode – If you have configured your system to
have a subwoofer, then you have the flexibility to
choose how bass information is distributed between
the front left/right speakers and the subwoofer when
listening to stereo (two channel only) analogue and
digital sources. Choose the option which gives you
the most solid, even sounding bass. If you are using
E-40
a subwoofer for stereo, please also see Sub Stereo
below to set the level of the subwoofer. For best
results test with a set-up disc or live programme
material. This setting can be used to override your
normal speaker settings in the Spkr Types menu
whenever the unit plays stereo material. It is quite
common to find that two channel stereo music
listening is best done with a slightly different sub/
speaker setting than for surround movies.
< As Spkr Types: When an analogue or digital stereo
source is played, your normal speaker configuration
(as in Spkr Types menu) is used to reproduce the
signal.
< Left/Right: Full frequency stereo information. All
audio is sent to the front left and right speakers only
without any bass redirection. You can use this setting
if you consider your front left/right speakers to be
able to handle the full frequency range of music.
If you have set your front left/right speaker size as
Small in the Spkr Types setup page, you may wish
to use this option to override the setting to Large
for stereo music listening, if you have full frequency
range left/right speakers.
It can often be beneficial to set full frequency range
speakers to Small in the Spkr Types setup page for
use with movies, if you have a subwoofer in your
system. Doing so may deliver more impact on
movie soundtracks as subwoofers are designed to
handle reproduction of high bass content. However
you may find that for stereo music a better overall
result is obtained by not using the subwoofer and
effectively treating the front left/right speakers as
Large.
< Left/Right+Sub: Full frequency range stereo is fed to
the front left and right speakers and extracted bass is
sent to the subwoofer. In this case the low frequency
information is effectively duplicated.
< Sat+Sub: Use this setting if you really do have Small
satellite front left and right speakers, or if you prefer
the overall sound of bass being handled by the
subwoofer. Full bass management is used so that
analogue and digital stereo sources are fed to the
DSP where the bass is filtered off front left and right
and redirected to the subwoofer.
NOTE
The Stereo Mode function is not available when
using an analogue source in Stereo Direct mode.
You should typically select RGB+Sync if you are using
a standard SCART to 4-wire phono breakout cable to
connect an RGB SCART source.
Brightness – Sets the video brightness for this input.
This setting can be used to compensate for an overly
dark or bright source picture on this input when
compared with other video sources.
Note that if RGB+Sync is selected, the S-Video and
Composite inputs cannot be selected as video inputs for
the current source.
Contrast – Sets the video contrast for this input. This
setting can be used to compensate for too much or too
little contrast in the source picture on this input when
compared with other video sources.
Colour – Sets the video colour saturation for this input.
This setting can be used to compensate for too much or
too little colour in the source picture on this input when
compared with other video sources.
Picture Mode – Sets how the video processor in the
AVR500/AVR600/AV888 interprets the video on this
input. Normally the video processor automatically
detects the original source type and correctly sets either
Video mode or Film mode processing. In the unlikely
event that the video processor misinterprets the video
type, resulting in subtle picture artefacts, the video
processor can be manually forced into Video mode or
Film mode. This function should normally be set to
Auto.
Edge Enhancement – Sharpens the picture from a
source on this input.
Mosquito N.R. – Removes haziness that sometimes appears
around objects in a picture from a source on this input.
Noise Reduction – Removes random noise within the
picture from a source on this input.
Block N.R. – Removes block artefacts in overly
compressed digital video from a source on this input.
Component Mode – Configures the current three-wire
high quality analogue video input for component (YUV)
video signals or RGB video signals. It is important
to match the setting to the incoming video format
otherwise the colours will be incorrect and the picture
may be unstable.
Options are Normal, RGsB and RGB+Sync.
< Normal: (default) the three-wire input is configured
for normal Component (YUV / YPbPr) analogue
video.
< RGsB: the three-wire input is configured for RGB
analogue video with video ‘sync-on-green’.
< RGB+Sync: the three wire input is configured for
RGB analogue video, with the video sync signal on
the composite input for the current named source.
Audio Source – Selects whether the audio signal
detection for this source is automatic or forced to a
particular signal type. When a source is selected the unit
looks for the highest quality audio signal type that is
connected in the order: HDMI – Digital – Analogue.
< HDMI: the unit is forced to use the HDMI video
input for this source.
< Component: the unit is forced to use the
Component/RGB video input for this source.
< S-Video: the unit is forced to use the S-Video input
for this source.
< Composite: the unit is forced to use the Composite
video input for this source.
General Setup
General information and system controls.
If the audio input type is not HDMI, there will be a
delay in detecting the type of audio that is connected,
resulting in longer switching times between sources. To
speed up source switching times you can force the unit
to look at only the specific audio connection type you
have for each source. Select from the list the audio type
you are using on this source.
Source Input – (Information only) The currently
selected input to which the settings below relate.
Incoming Format – (Information only) The format
of the digital audio stream connected to this input, if
present.
NOTE: you may experience some audio transients when
changing this setting. As a precaution, we recommend
that you reduce the volume level first.
< Auto: (default) the unit scans through the various
audio input connectors/formats for the current
source and selects the highest quality available for
this source.
< HDMI: the unit is forced to use the HDMI audio
input for this source.
< Digital: the unit is forced to use the optical (TOSLINK)
or coaxial (S/PDIF) digital audio input for this source
< Analogue: the unit is forced to use the analogue
audio input for this source.
Video Source – Selects whether the video signal
detection for this source is automatic or forced to a
particular signal type. When a source is selected the
unit looks for the highest quality video signal type that
is connected in the order: HDMI – Component/RGB –
S-Video – Composite.
If the video input type is not HDMI, there will be a delay
in detecting the type of video that is connected, resulting
in longer switching times between sources. To speed up
source switching times you can force the unit to look
at only the specific video connection type you have for
each source. Select from the list the video type you are
using on this source.
< Auto: (default) the unit scans through the various
video input connectors/formats for the current
source and selects the highest quality available for
this source.
Incoming Sample Rate – (Information only) The
sample rate of the digital audio stream connected to this
input, if present.
Incoming Bit Rate – (Information only) The bit rate
of the digital audio stream connected to this input, if
present.
Dialnorm – (Information only) If a Dolby Digital audio
stream is connected to this input, this is the Dialogue
Normalisation setting requested by the stream.
Video Input – The currently selected video input. For
inputs that have video connections (e.g. SAT, PVR etc),
audio and video inputs normally switch over together.
However, here you can temporarily select a different
video source for the current audio source. This feature
may be useful, for example, if you are watching a sports
game on satellite but on this occasion wish to listen to
the commentary on the radio instead. This temporary
override is reset when the input source is changed so
that the Video Input follows the Audio Input setting (or
the setting in the Video Inputs menu, if applicable).
Audio Compression – Allows selection of compression
which is ideal for late night listening. The compression
effect increases the volume of the quiet passages
and decreases the volume of the louder passages.
Compression only applies to some Dolby Digital and
DTS soundtracks that support this function.
< Off: (default) no audio compression is applied.
< On: Audio compression is applied whenever a
soundtrack supporting compression is received.
E-41
< On / Auto: As for On above, except for Dolby
TrueHD soundtracks which support an additional
Auto on/off setting
This setting applies to all inputs when a relevant digital
audio stream is detected. It is stored in memory and
recalled each time the unit is powered up.
Balance – To alter the sound balance temporarily
between front left and right speakers. You can alter
the sound stage to either the left or the right by up to
6dB. Note that it is not possible to shift the audio signal
completely over to one channel. This function resets to
equal left/right balance when the input is changed.
PLII Dimension –
PLII Centre Width –
PLII Panorama –
These allow the adjustment of the sound field for Dolby
Pro Logic II Music mode decoding of two-channel
sources. These setting apply to all inputs when PLII or
PLIIx Music decoding is selected. The settings are stored
in memory and recalled each time PLII or PLIIx Music
mode is selected.
< Dimension: Allows the user gradually to adjust the
sound field either towards the front or towards the
rear. Settings range from -3 to +3. We recommend
Dimension is set to 0 for normal use.
< Centre Width: Controls the centre image width.
With Pro Logic decoding, dominant centre signals
come only from the centre speaker. If no centre
speaker is present, the decoder splits the centre
signal equally to the left and right speakers to create
a ‘phantom’ centre image. The Centre Width control
allows variable adjustment of the centre image so
it may be heard only from the centre speaker; only
from the left/right speakers as a phantom image; or
from all three front speakers to varying degrees. We
recommend Centre Width is set to 3 for normal use.
< Panorama: Extends the front centre image to
include the surround speakers for an exciting ‘wraparound’ effect with side-wall imaging.
Digital Output Freq. – Sets the sampling frequency of
the audio Analogue-to-Digital converter. This setting
applies to all inputs when analogue audio is being
processed (i.e. not Stereo Direct mode). It is stored in
memory and recalled each time the unit is powered up.
Volume Adjustment – Sets the step size of the volume
control.
< Normal: (default) volume control is in 1dB steps
< Fine: volume control is in 0.5dB steps
English
Sub Stereo – If Left/Right+Sub or Sat+Sub is selected in
Stereo Mode above, this setting adjusts the level of the
subwoofer when the source is two channel stereo.
Maximum Volume – Limits the maximum volume
setting the system can be turned up to in the main zone.
This is a useful feature to prevent accidental overdriving
of low power-handling speakers (for example). It is
stored in memory and recalled each time the unit is
powered up.
Max On Volume – Limits the maximum volume the
system operates in the main zone when it is switched
on or comes out of Standby. The system comes on at
this stored volume setting if the last used (possibly very
loud) volume exceeds this value. It is stored in memory
and recalled each time the unit is powered up.
Audio In iPod – If you have an iPod connected to the
AVR500/AVR600/AV888 using an Arcam rDock or
rLead, this control allows you to set which audio input
is used.
Auto Setup
Auto Speaker Setup of your loudspeakers and subwoofer
(if present) is controlled by this menu. A full description
of how Auto Speaker Setup works is given on page 33.
Remember to insert the calibration microphone into the
AUX input on the front panel and position the microphone
at the listening position before running Auto Setup.
Run Auto Setup – Press OK (or O on the remote) to
start Auto Speaker Setup. The process will generate test
tones from the speakers and will typically take less than
two minutes. The test tone generator will cycle round
each speaker twice.
Accept Setup – When Auto Speaker Setup has
completed without errors you can choose to accept or
reject the settings
< No: The settings are not stored in memory.
< Yes: All the speaker settings (speakers present, type,
distance, level and crossover frequency) are stored
in the relevant sections of the Setup Menu and
overwrite any previous settings.
Auto Setup Progress – Gives a summary of what Auto
Speaker Setup is doing as it progresses, starting with
which speaker is being tested.
< Calculating EQ: Data gathered from each of the
speakers is being processed.
< Completed Error: A problem was detected with the
speaker setup. See the descriptions for each of the
individual speakers, below. Alternatively an invalid
speaker configuration was detected.
Here you set the type of speakers that you have
connected to your AVR500/AVR600/AV888:
< Large: capable of full frequency range reproduction
< Small: not capable of full frequency range
reproduction at the low frequency end
< None: speaker not present in your configuration
< Subwoofer: Set whether a subwoofer is present or not.

If the above speakers are correctly detected as present in
your speaker configuration, their size (Small or Large),
distance from the listening position and trim level (dB)
will be displayed. Note that size does not apply to the
subwoofer. Otherwise one of the following messages will
be displayed:
< Not Present: A speaker was not detected on this
channel.
< Clipped: The test tone detected by the microphone
was distorted or clipped. This could be because
you have very sensitive speakers and they are
very close to the listening position. However it is
more likely that the detected signal was corrupted
by microphone handling noise or other external
sounds. Try running Auto Speaker Setup again.
< Mic too close: The speaker is too close to the listening
position to be able to calculate its distance. If possible,
try moving the speaker slightly further away from the
listening position and run Auto Speaker Setup again.
Crossover Freq. – The frequency at which Auto Speaker

Spkr Types
Settings for the types of loudspeaker you have connected
to your AVR500, AVR600 or AV888 and power
amplifier (e.g. the Arcam P777). These settings are

For Surr. Back L/R, the number before Large and Small
in the dropdown options list is the number of Surround
Back speakers in your configuration. If you only have
one Surround Back speaker connect it to the SBL output.
NOTE
It is not possible to set all speakers to Small unless
there is a subwoofer in your speaker configuration.
If you do not have a subwoofer, you will be forced to
set your front speakers to Large.
Crossover Freq – This is the frequency at which
loudspeakers set as Small start to redirect bass signals to
the Subwoofer or Large speakers in your system. Small
speakers redirect bass to the subwoofer, if present. The
exception is the Centre speaker which, if Small, redirects
its bass to front left/right provided that they themselves
are Large. This is done to help keep Centre bass directly
in front of the listening position.
MCH Sub Levels – This setting controls the subwoofer
level from an externally decoded multichannel source
(DVD-A, SACD, etc). Most DVD players require a
+10dB compensation on the subwoofer channel to
maintain the correct balance with the main channels.
< +10dB comp.: for normal DVD players which output
the analogue subwoofer channel at the low 0dBr
level. Gain compensation of +10dB is added to the
subwoofer channel of the MCH input in the AVR500,
AVR600 or AV888.
< No comp.: for DVD players which output the
analogue subwoofer channel at the correct +10dBr
level. No subwoofer gain compensation is needed
on the subwoofer channel of the MCH input in the
AVR500, AVR600 or AV888.
Use Channels 6+7 for – If your main zone speaker
set up does not include Surround Back Left and Right
speakers, you can choose to use the Surround Back
amplifier channels to bi-amp the Front Left and Right
pair, or as a stereo power amplifier for Zone 2 (but note
that powered Zone 2 is not available on the AV888).

Important points to remember:
For analogue outputs
The analogue output resolution should be chosen
carefully; Composite and S-Video connections can
only carry 480i (525-line NTSC) or 576i (625-line
PAL) signals. If an output resolution higher than this
is chosen in Out 1 Resolution, the Composite and
S-Video main zone outputs will be disabled.
You should also set the frame rate (50Hz Interlaced
for PAL, 60Hz Interlaced for NTSC) and the
aspect ratio (4:3 standard or 16:9 widescreen) to
match your display device. Note that S-Video and
Composite can only carry Interlaced video. If you
select Progressive analogue video, Zone 1 S-Video
and Composite outputs will be disabled.

decoding
modes
Introduction
Two-channel source modes
Your AVR500/AVR600 receiver or AV888 pre-amp
provides all the key decoding and processing modes for
analogue and digital signals, including the latest high
definition audio formats over HDMI.
The following decoding and surround modes are
available for standard and high definition Dolby Digital
2.0, DTS 2.0, PCM or analogue sources:
Stereo
Pro Logic II Movie
Pro Logic II Music
Pro Logic II Game
Pro Logic IIx Movie
Pro Logic IIx Music
Pro Logic IIx Game
Pro Logic
Neo:6 Cinema
Neo:6 Music
Modes for digital sources
Digital recordings are usually encoded to include
information about their format type. The unit detects
automatically the relevant format in a digital signal –
such as Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD
Master Audio, Dolby Digital, or DTS – and switches in
the appropriate decoding.
Modes for analogue sources
Analogue recordings do not contain information about
their encoding formats, so the desired mode – such as
Dolby Pro Logic – needs to be selected manually.
NOTE
Pro Logic IIx modes are only selectable when
Surround Back speakers are present.
Mode memory
Dolby Digital or DTS audio (including the high
definition formats) can be output in two mix modes,
selected using the mode button:
< Surround (e.g., five main channels plus a subwoofer
for a 5.1 source)
< Stereo downmix.
to the recording, Music mode allows the user
adjustment of the processing characteristics.
< Game mode: Video games today are extremely
sophisticated, with dramatic 5.1 surround
audio tracks. Game mode gives augmented bass
management to capture the full effect of game
sounds panned to the surrounds, ensuring the
bass impact from purer surround effects are fully
delivered to the subwoofer.
Dolby Pro Logic IIx
Dolby Pro Logic IIx is an extension of the Dolby Pro
Logic matrix-decoding method. The decoder allows
the processor to derive seven outputs from a two or
multichannel (up to 5.1 with EX) source to take better
advantage of all amplifiers and speakers in a 7.1 setup.
As with Pro Logic, there are three different modes
available: Movie, Music and Game. Due to different
recording methods used for movies and music, you
should select the correct mode for your source material.
Dolby Pro Logic
In this mode the unit works as a conventional high
quality audio amplifier. Note that if the subwoofer is
enabled in stereo mode, then some processing of the
signal will be carried out. To achieve ultimate sound
quality with analogue sources, select the Stereo Direct
function if an analogue connection is present.
Dolby Pro Logic is a legacy mode that is designed
to produce a five-channel output from two-channel
source material. It should be used only when the source
material is encoded as Dolby Pro Logic; otherwise,
we recommend the use of Dolby Pro Logic II. This is
because Pro Logic processing on straight stereo sources
can sound muffled and compressed.
Dolby Pro Logic II
DTS Neo:6
Stereo
Two-channel audio, regardless of whether it is analogue
or digital can also be output in two mix modes, selected
using the mode button:
< Surround (e.g., Dolby Pro Logic II Movie, Neo:6
Music, etc.)
< Stereo.
Dolby Pro Logic II decoding is designed to produce fivechannel output from two-channel source material.
TheAVR500/AVR600/AV888 stores the settings for each
source (except MCH). Thus the decoding mode for
the following groups of source material can be stored
independently:
< Dolby Digital (multichannel) and DTS source
material
< Two channel Dolby, PCM or Analogue source
material
There are three different modes available in Pro Logic II:
‘Movie’, ‘Music’ and ‘Game’ modes, which are intended
for use as their names suggest. Due to the different
recording methods used for movies, music and video
games, it is recommended that the correct decoding
mode for your source material is used to obtain best
results.
< Movie mode: This is intended for use with
‘cinematic’ material, which is mixed and monitored
in a calibrated multichannel environment. Movie
mode is a ‘fixed’ mode that is designed to give a
similar sound when listening using a home cinema
system to that obtained in a cinema.
< Music mode : Stereo music is not designed for
surround processing, although good surround
effects can be obtained through careful production.
As the optimum decoding method varies according
E-46
DTS Neo:6 provides up to six full-band channels of
decoding from stereo material. The AVR500, AVR600
or AV888 will derive separate channels corresponding to
the standard home theatre layout.
< Cinema : A movie mode designed to reproduce
a movie theatre environment. Neo:6 technology
allows various sound elements within a channel or
channels to be steered separately, and in a way which
follows the original presentation naturally.
< Music : A music mode designed to produce a lively,
high-integrity surround-effect from most twochannel music sources from all available speakers.
Neo:6 music mode expands stereo recordings into
the five or six-channel layout without diminishing
the subtlety and integrity of the original stereo
recording.
Digital multichannel source material is normally
provided as ‘5.1 audio’. The ‘5.1 channels’ comprise
of: left, centre and right front speakers, two surround
speakers and a low frequency effects (LFE) channel.
Since the LFE channel is not a full range channel, it is
referred to as ‘.1’.
Surround systems decode and reproduce the 5.1
channels directly. Dolby Digital EX and DTS-ES matrix
enhanced decoding systems create one extra rear
channel from information buried in the two surround
signals of the 5.1 source. These EX and ES enhanced
systems are sometimes referred to as ‘6.1’ systems. This
extra surround back channel is normally reproduced
through two separate loudspeakers, creating a ‘7.1’
system.
DTS-ES discrete is a true ‘6.1’ source, with six discretely
encoded channels, plus the ‘.1’ LFE channel.
Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby True-HD and DTS-HD are
high-resolution surround formats found on Blu-ray and
HD-DVD discs
Decoding modes
High resolution audio sources
Dolby True-HD
Provides up to 7.1 full channel at 96kHz, 24bit resolution, with potentially no
losses in the compression process. Data rates can be up to 18Mbps.
Dolby Digital Plus
Provides up to 7.1 discrete channels of audio with less compression than
traditional Dolby Digital encoding. Data rates can be up to 6Mbps.
DTS-HD Master Audio
Provides up to 7.1 full channel at 96kHz, 24bit resolution, with potentially no
losses in the compression process. Data rates can be up to 24.5Mbps.
For Dolby Digital sources
Dolby Digital 5.1
The most commonly used sound format for DVD video, and is also the
standard for US television. Dolby Digital 5.1 sources deliver sound with five
discrete full-range channels; left, centre, right, surround left, surround right,
plus a low frequency effects (LFE) channel.
Dolby Digital 5.1 Stereo
Downmix
Provides a stereo downmix of the source material for use with headphones.
For DTS sources
DTS 5.1
Less common than the Dolby Digital format, but generally recognised within
the audio industry as being of superior sound quality. DTS 5.1 delivers
surround sound with five full range channels plus an LFE channel.
DTS 5.1 Stereo Downmix
Provides a stereo downmix of the source material for use with headphones.
DTS-ES 6.1 Matrix
This is a 6.1 channel format based on DTS 5.1. It has the sixth channel matrix
encoded into the surround left and surround right channels. The sixth channel
is a surround centre channel and is directed to the surround back left and
surround back right speakers.
DTS-ES 6.1 Discrete
This is a true discrete 6.1 channel sound format (unlike DTS-ES Matrix).
DTS-ES discrete mode operates only on sources with DTS-ES 6.1 discrete
audio encoding.
DTS96/24
Provides up to 5.1 channels of audio at 96kHz, 24bit resolution for superior
sound quality compared to standard DTS 5.1
The modes given in the following table are available for
multichannel digital sources.
Special modes such as DTS-ES 6.1 discrete, Dolby
Digital Plus, Dolby Tru-HD and DTS-HD are only
available from the correct source material.
Post-processing
Dolby Digital EX decoding can be applied to any source if one or two surround speakers are present. Pro Logic IIx
decoding can be applied to any source if two surround back speakers are present.
Dolby Digital EX
This is an extension to Dolby Digital decoding that provides a 6-channel output
from a 5-channel input. The extra channel is the centre-surround channel (for
which the two surround back speakers are used), and is derived from the left
and right surround channel information. This decode mode should be used
only when the source material is ‘Surround EX’ encoded (which is normally
indicated on the disc packaging and should be detected automatically by the
AVR500/AVR600/AV888), but may be used at other times if desired.
Pro Logic IIx Movie
This mode is used to derive information for the individual surround back
channels from the surround channels, using the Pro Logic IIx Movie decoder.
Pro Logic IIx Music
This mode is used to derive information for the individual surround back
channels from the surround channels, using the Pro Logic IIx Music decoder.
The controls for adjusting Pro Logic IIx Music in ‘General Setup’ can be used in
this mode.

Multichannel source modes
Dolby volume
Dolby Volume is a sophisticated new
technology that resolves the problem of
different volume levels between programme content
(e.g. a TV show and advert breaks) and between sources
(e.g. a rock radio station and DVD, or between two
TV stations). It lets the listener enjoy everything at the
same preferred listening level without having to reach
for the volume control to compensate for the different
recording/output levels. This is the Volume Leveller
function of Dolby Volume.
Dolby Volume also works in conjunction with the
AVR500, AVR600 or AV888 volume control setting to
compensate for the ear’s changing sensitivity at different
frequencies depending on how loud the audio is. It
is based on a model of how human hearing works. It
properly balances low, mid and high frequencies to
maintain all the nuances and impact of the original
audio regardless of the actual selected playback volume
level. This is the Volume Modeller function of Dolby
Volume.
Dolby Volume measures, analyses and maintains volume
levels based on how people perceive sound. A variety of
audio parameters are monitored including spectral- and
time-based loudness to ensure that perceived dynamics,
timbre and bass performance remain consistent at all
volume levels.
Dolby Volume also lets the listener control a
programme’s dynamic range – the range between loud
and quiet sounds. For example, with the volume turned
down for late-night viewing, dynamic range can be
adjusted so that speech remains clear and loud effects or
music passages retain their impact without waking up
the family.
Settings
Dolby Volume can be applied to any analogue or digital
stereo source or any digital multichannel source. It
is not available in Stereo Direct or on the analogue
multichannel input. Dolby Volume can even be applied
to processing of stereo signals (e.g. PLII Music) or when
down-mixing a digital multichannel source (e.g. Dolby
Digital 5.1 down to stereo).
Dolby Volume on some or all inputs to maintain the
same perceived overall listening level between sources
and frequency response regardless of the volume setting.
There are two modes for Dolby Volume: ‘Cinema’ and
‘Music’, which calibrate the system to match the type of
audio material generally played on each input. Movie
should be selected for sources which typically play
movie soundtracks. Music should be selected for all
other sources (CD, TV, Satellite, Tuner, etc.). Most of the
controlling parameters of Dolby Volume are automatic
as they are dependent on analysis of the audio signal and
the volume setting of the AVR500, AVR600 or AV888.
However, the Volume Leveller and Calibration Offset
controls (see below) can be adjusted to your preference.
Volume Leveller
The Volume Leveller function of Dolby Volume controls
how closely quiet and loud sources and programme
content are matched to each other, based on the
ear’s perception of loudness. The range of values is 0
(minimal levelling) to 10 (maximum levelling). The
default setting is 9. If the Volume Leveller function
is turned off, no level matching between sources and
programme material is performed. This is not the
same as turning Dolby Volume off as volume related
frequency response processing is still active.
When Dolby Volume is being applied to the current
input, a Dolby Volume processing mode indicator is
shown on the OSD and the front panel display.
Calibration Offset
The Calibration Offset parameter of Dolby Volume
allows you to compensate for speaker efficiencies and
listening position – effectively moving the reference
listening level up or down the volume scale. The default
value is 0 and this should normally produce a good
result when the speaker levels are set using a sound
pressure level meter at the listening position (75dB SPL,
‘C’ weighting, slow response).
Dolby Volume can be enabled and configured separately
for each audio input in the Input Config menu. The
default is Off for ‘audiophile’ listening to analogue or
digital stereo sources, however you may wish to enable

Tuner – AVR500/AVR600 only
Tuning/Channel Selection
Saving and selecting Presets
The AVR500/AVR600 is fitted with an internal AM/FM
tuner. Depending on your location and installed options,
it may also be fitted with a DAB tuner (Europe) or Sirius
satellite radio connection (Americas; AVR600 only).
Sirius requires the purchase of the ‘SiriusConnect™
Home Tuner’ kit and Sirius subscription – please visit
www.sirius.com for details.
When switching to the internal TUNER source, the
AVR500/AVR600 enters the last used tuner band, be it
AM / FM / DAB (if fitted) / Sirius (if fitted). Repeatedly
pressing T cycles through the available tuner bands on
your AVR600.
Preset selection uses the B and C keys on the
remote to browse and O to select the preset when the
CR102 is in TUN device mode.
This section deals with tuner operation, for information
on setting up the tuner and installing aerials, see page
14.
When a tuner input is selected, the OSD shows a list
of radio presets plus an information panel giving all
available information about the current frequency (for
AM and FM) or channel (for DAB or Sirius).
The front panel will also give the same information,
pressing the INFO key will cycle through the various
items of information:
AM
• Processing mode (default)
• Frequency
• Signal strength
FM
• Processing mode (default)
• Radiotext (if available; shows ‘No radiotext’ if none
present)

FM/AM analogue radio
Frequency tuning on FM and AM radio is done using
the < and > buttons on the CR102 remote control in
TUN device mode. Individual presses move the frequency
down and up one step. If you press and hold either of
the tuning buttons for two seconds, the tuner scans to
the next strong signal. You can stop a scan at any time by
pressing one of the tuning buttons again.
In Europe, the internal FM radio is capable of receiving
RDS (Radio Data System) radiotext signals that are
transmitted on some stations. The RDS information
typically includes the radio station name, the music or
speech genre as well as additional information related to
the current programme. On music stations this is often
information on the currently playing track.
DAB digital radio
If your AVR500/AVR600 is fitted with the optional DAB
tuner you will need to scan for available stations before
being able to listen to them.
To scan for DAB stations, first select the DAB tuner then
press and hold O until the display indicates scanning
has started. The AVR500/AVR600 will then scan all the
DAB radio frequencies and compile a list of the stations
that are available.
When the scan is complete, you can scroll through the
station list using the < and > buttons on the CR102
remote control. To listen to the currently displayed
station press the O. If you do not press O within
two seconds, the display will revert to displaying the
currently playing station.
Internet radio
Please see the Network/USB Operation section on page
46 for details of internet radio operation.
Up to 99 presets can be stored and these can be from any
band, for example Preset 1 could be an AM station, preset
two a DAB station, etc. Pressing the OK key causes the next
available preset number to be displayed, then pressing
the OK key again stores the current frequency/channel in
that preset. If a different preset number is required, press
the B or C keys until the desired number is displayed
before pressing the OK key for a second time.
Deleting Presets
When in tuner browse mode (using B and , to
scroll through the presets), the yellow button on the
CR102 remote is used to delete the currently highlighted
(but not playing) station or frequency.
Sirius satellite radio
(AVR600, US & Canada only)
In this section it is assumed that you already have
a ‘SiriusConnect™ Home Tuner’ kit and a Sirius
subscription, and that the antenna is already correctly
placed to receive Sirius broadcasts. Please visit
www.sirius.com for more information.
Add to your subscription
Before being able to receive satellite radio broadcasts
you will need to update your Sirius subscription to add
the ID number of the Sirius receiver module in your
AVR600. The Sirius ID can be found by switching to
the Sirius source and selecting channel 0. The AVR600
displays the 12-digit number on the OSD and on the
front panel display. You should make a note of this ID
number, then select Sirius channel 184 while you apply
this ID number to your account at www.sirius.com or
by calling 1.888.539.SIRIUS (7474).
Once your subscription is updated, a code is sent
over Sirius channel 184. When this code is received
the AVR600 displays ‘SUBSCRIPTION UPDATED’. This
display remains until cleared by pressing any button. The
Sirius radio module is now fully operational.
Please note that, depending on your subscription,
some channels may not be available. If a channel is not
part of your subscription package, you are invited to
subscribe to the channel - ‘CALL 888-539-SIRIUS To
Subscribe’ is displayed and audio is muted. If you have

Operation
In addition to the channel and preset selection,
previously mentioned, you can also cycle through the
channel categories (Rock, Pop, Country, etc.) using the
] and [ keys. The first channel in each category is
displayed. You can then scroll through other channels
in that particular category using the D or E buttons on
the CR102 remote. On the OSD a star (‘ * ”) is shown
before the category name to show you are scrolling
through channels only in the current category. Press
O to select the currently displayed channel to listen
to it otherwise the display times out and returns to the
currently playing channel information.
Sirius errors
If an invalid channel is selected, the AVR600 displays
‘INVALID CHANNEL’ and the channel reverts to the
previous valid channel.
English
any queries about your subscription, please contact
Sirius.
If there is a loss of signal, the AVR600 displays
‘ACQUIRING SIGNAL’.
If the antenna is disconnected, the AVR600 displays
‘ANTENNA ERROR’.
During the channel map update, the message ‘Updating
channels - xx%’ is displayed. Note that audio is
muted until the update is complete. When complete, the
AVR600 retunes to the original channel and restores the
audio.
Locking Channels
The Sirius module in the AVR600 has a parental lockout
feature which allows you to assign a 4-digit code to any
channels you do not wish to be generally available to
users.
Channels can be locked out individually by pressing and
holding the MODE key. ‘Lock?’ also appears on the lower
line of the On Screen Display. Pressing O confirms and
applies the parental lock to the channel and the display
returns to the channel name.
If a locked channel is selected, the audio will be muted
and the user prompted on the display to enter the
unlocking code. ‘Unlock code :____’ is displayed.
The default unlock code is 0000.
If the code is entered correctly the audio for this channel
unmutes. If the code is not entered correctly, the
previously played channel is re-selected.
To remove the parental lock from one of the locked
channels (so that the unlocking code is no longer
required to listen to them), navigate to the channel,
select it and enter the unlocking code to unmute the
channel. Press and hold the M key until the display
shows ‘Unlock ?’. Press O to remove the lock from the
channel.
To change your locking code, in TUN device mode on the
remote, press and hold the b key.
NOTE
The locking code is reset to 0000 if a factory reset of
the AVR600 is performed.

The Z2 Out, R and L phono sockets should be connected
to the analogue audio inputs (Usually labelled
Analogue Audio in) of the Zone 2 display device, or
to the inputs of an additional stereo power amplifier in
Zone 2 (for example, the Arcam P38).
The connection guide on the facing page shows how the
AVR600 or AV888 is normally connected in a multiroom installation.
Zone 2
Zone 2 receives only signals obtained by the AVR500,
AVR600 or AV888 from the analogue audio, Composite
and S-Video inputs. The analogue inputs are required
because there is no analogue-to-digital, digital-toanalogue or DSP processing available for Zone 2 signals
– the unit only converts video formats for Zone 1.
Zone 3 (AVR600/AV888 only)
A line-level signal from the stereo analogue audio is
available for Zone 3. This is a copy of the Zone 2 audio
signal, but has its own independent volume control.
Audio outputs
The Z3 Out, R and L phono sockets should be connected
to the inputs of an additional stereo power amplifier in
Zone 3 (for example, the Arcam P38).
For this reason, we recommend that in addition to any
digital connections, the Composite and/or S-Video
outputs from your source devices are connected to the
AVR500, AVR600 or AV888.
Zone 2 and 3 control outputs
The AVR500, AVR600 and AV888 also allow remote
control from remote zones.
Z2 IR and Z3 IR
This allows the AVR500/AVR600/AV888 to be
controlled remotely from Zone 2 (or Zone 3) via Infrared remote control. Connect a remote IR receiver in
Zone 2 (or Zone 3) to allow control of the AVR500/
AVR600/AV888 from these listening/viewing areas.
For more information on remote IR receivers, see ‘Z1 IR’
on page 17.
TRIG Z2 and TRIG Z3
This allows the AVR500/AVR600/AV888 to remotely
switch on devices in Zone 2 (or 3) when the appropriate
Zone is selected. For example you could set your
television in Zone 2 to switch on when ‘Zone 2’ is
selected on AVR500/AVR600/AV888.
For more information on triggers, see ‘Trigger
connectors’ on page 17. Please note that not all AV
devices have this feature, nor are triggers essential for
listening and viewing in a separate zone.
Video outputs
The Z2 S-Video and/or Composite output connectors
of the AVR500/AVR600/AV888 should be connected to
the analogue video inputs (usually labelled S-Video In or
Composite Video in) of the display device in Zone 2.
If you wish to make an HDMI connection to Zone 2,
you must accept the limitations of the AVR500/AVR600/
AV888 video processing system.
HDMI OUT 1 and OUT 2 both carry the same signals (as
there is only one video processing engine) and are
primarily intended for use in Zone 1. Full HDMI video
functionality in Zone 2 can only be achieved if Zone 1 is
not being used at the same time.
If Zone 1 is being used at the same time as Zone 2,
Zone 2 must follow the Zone 1 source selection if you
wish to receive HDMI signals in Zone 2. Zone 2 must
also be the same video resolution as Zone 1. If you wish
to watch a different source in Zone 2 than is currently
showing over HDMI in Zone 1, Zone 2 will be forced to
use the analogue video connections into and out of the
AVR500/AVR600/AV888.

Code Learning
customising
the CR102
The CR102 comes with a complete library of
preprogrammed codes. After you have set up the CR102
for your device, you may find that there are one or more
functions on your original remote which do not have a
place on the CR102 keypad. For convenience, the CR102
offers a Code Learning feature that allows you to copy
up to 16 functions from an original remote control onto
the CR102 keypad.
Before you start, make sure that:
<The original remote control is working correctly.
<The remotes are not pointing at your device.
<The remotes have new batteries.
<The remotes are not in direct sunlight or under
strong fluorescent lights.
Learned functions are mode-dependent: You could
theoretically assign up to eight different functions
to a single key (the CR102 can handle a total of 16
learned functions).
9. To use the learned function on the CR102, press the
Device Mode key, followed by the function key.
In this example, you’d press
a followed by (
Shifted Learning
To delete a Shifted Learned function, press S before
you press the key to be deassigned (during step 4 above).
To delete ALL learned functions within a
given Device Mode
You can assign a learned function to a CR102 key
without sacrificing its original function.
1. Press and hold S until the power LED blinks twice:
* *.
You can assign Shifted Learning functions to any key
except for: Device Mode keys (e.g. a), S, or number
keys (0 to 9).
1. To assign a Shifted Learning function, simply follow
Code Learning steps in the previous section. During
step 5, press S once before you press the key to
which you want to assign the learned function.
2. To access the shifted function, press S and then the
target key.
2. Press 9 7 6 – the power LED blinks twice: *
*.
3. Press the appropriate Device Mode key twice.
Important notes
<Once you start a Code Learning session, you have
approximately 10 seconds to conduct each step. Any
longer, and a timeout means that you’ll have to start
the process again.
<The Learning feature is mode-specific – you can
copy one feature per mode onto a key.
<The CR102 can learn approximately 16 functions in
total.
<To replace a learned function, simply assign a new
one to the same key.
<Learned functions are retained when you change
batteries.
<If Code Learning fails, try altering the distance
between the two remotes; make sure that the light in
the area is not too bright.
Example: To copy the ‘text hold’ function
from a TV remote onto the ( key of your
CR102
1. Place both remotes on a flat surface, 2 to 5cm apart,
with the IR ports facing each other.
2. On the CR102, press and hold S until the power
LED blinks twice: * *.
3. Press 9 7 5. The power LED blinks twice: *
*.
4. On the CR102, press the device key that matches the
‘source’ device (e.g. if you’re learning a TV function,
press a).
5. On the CR102, press the key to which you want to
assign the learned function (e.g. (). The device key
blinks rapidly.
6. On the original remote, press and hold the function
key that you want to learn (e.g. Text Hold) until the
CR102 device key blinks twice: * *.
7. If you want to learn other functions from the same
source device, simply repeat steps 5 and 6 pressing
the next key you want to learn.
8. To exit Code Learning mode, press and hold S
until the device key blinks twice: * *.
To delete a Shifted Learned function:
To delete a learned function
1. Press and hold S until the power LED blinks twice:

3. Press a Device Mode key once. For example, if you
want to delete one of your learned TV functions,
press a.
4. Press twice on the key you want to deassign. The
handset blinks twice: * * to confirm.
The original function of the CR102 is restored.
E-56
You can program your CR102 to issue a sequence of
commands when you press a single key. Any sequence of
commands you regularly use can be reduced to a single
key press for your convenience.
For example, you might want to turn off your TV, VCR
and Satellite at the same time.
<A key programmed with a Macro is available in all
modes; it will replace that key’s different functions
for all modes.
<A Macro can consist of up to eight key presses.
Example: To deassign the Macro associated
with the h key
1. Press and hold S until the power LED blinks twice:
* *.
2. Press 9 9 5.
3. Press h.
4. Press and hold S until the power LED blinks twice:
* *.
Volume punch-through
Key Mover
Volume punch-through means that, no matter which
Device Mode is selected, the CR102 controls the
AVR500, AVR600 or AV888 volume. You don’t need to
press A on your CR102; this feature is switched on by
default.
Sometimes you might find that a key you use a lot for
your system is in the ‘wrong’ place on the CR102 keypad
for your comfort. It’s quite easy to reassign a favourite
function to a more accessible key. It is even possible
to move a function from one Device Mode to another
Device Mode.
There are times, however, when you might want to
control a device’s volume directly when in a specific
Device Mode.
Example: To cancel volume punch-through
for a TV (AV mode)
1. Press a once.
Example: To assign a Macro to the h key
1.Press and hold S until the power LED blinks twice:
* *.
2. Press 9 9 5.
3. Press h (the Macro will be assigned to this key).
4. Press a, P, w, P, z, P. (These are the Macro
steps you wish to record.)
5. To store the Macro, press and hold S until the
power LED blinks twice: * *.
Now, whenever you press h, the CR102 will toggle the
power to your TV, VCR and Satellite.
<The important word here is ‘toggle’. For example, if
the TV and Satellite devices are currently on, but
the VCR is off, pressing h will switch off the TV
and Satellite and switch on the VCR (rather than
switching all three devices on or off).
<When using Macros, remember that you may need
to change mode or use S, and that each key press
(including changing modes and pressing S) counts
as one of the Macro steps. You cannot use a Macro
key within another Macro.
<If the amount of memory storage for a particular
Macro is exceeded, the power LED comes on for five
seconds. You can, however, save the macro steps up
to that point by pressing S, or you can cancel the
Macro recording by pressing any other key.
<The delay between key presses is recorded as part of
the Macro. A delay of up to 30 seconds is permitted.
2. Press and hold S until the power LED blinks twice:
* *.
3. Press 9 9 3.
4. Press -. The power LED blinks four times.
Now, while in TV (AV) mode, you will be able to control
the volume or mute functions of your TV directly.
To completely cancel all volume punchthrough settings
1. Press z.
2. Press and hold S until the power LED blinks twice:
* *.
3. Press 9 9 4.
4. Press the key you want to move (e.g. D)
5. Press the key you want to move the key to (e.g. U).
Now, pressing either D or U while in SAT Device
Mode makes the CR102 transmit the D function.
To completely swap over the functionality of the two
keys to put the U functionality on the D key, repeat
the above process again, but swap over the D and U
key presses in the example.
1. Press and hold S until the power LED blinks twice:
* *.
2. Press 9 9 3.
Note that the function that is copied over to the new key
is always the original function of the old key.
3. Press +. The power LED blinks four times * *
* *.
To restore a key to its previous function, repeat the
example above, pressing the key to be restored twice
(copy it back to itself).
Now, whichever mode you’re in, you will have direct
access to that device’s volume or mute functions,
assuming they are available. You would need to switch to
AMP mode to alter the AVR500/AVR600/AV888 volume.
Example: To restore default volume punchthrough settings to all Device Modes
1. Press and hold S until the power LED blinks twice:

Mode specific and therefore effectively ‘punch-through’
to the original Device Mode when copied over.
The following example copies the AVR500/AVR600/
AV888 Direct function from the CR102 AMP device
mode to the shifted function of the # button on AV
Device Mode.
1. Press and hold S until the power LED blinks twice:
* *.
2. Press 9 9 4.
3. Press the Device Mode key of the function you want
to move (e.g. A).
4. Press the function key you want to move (e.g.)/
DIRECT)
5. Press the key of the Device Mode you want to copy
the function to (e.g. a)
6. Press the S button graphic
7. Press the key you want to copy the function to (e.g.
#)
If you prefer to copy the key to the main function of the
# button instead of the ‘shifted’ function, omit point 6
in the above example.
Mode Mover
Locking/Unlocking a specific
Device Mode
If your home entertainment setup contains devices of
the same type (e.g. two TVs, perhaps from different
manufacturers) you can still control both those devices
with the CR102. You simply need to reassign an unused
Device Mode key.
When you first unpack your CR102 and insert the
batteries, for your convenience it is able to control
certain Arcam components automatically (e.g. DVD
players, Amplifiers, Tuners and CD Players). We achieve
this by preprogramming specific Arcam device codes
onto the relevant Device Mode keys, then locking
the Device Modes so you don’t reprogram them
inadvertently.
NOTE
Before using Mode Mover, make sure both the
source and destination Device Mode keys are
unlocked (see next section).
Example: To use the z key to control a
second TV
1. Press and hold S until the power LED blinks twice:
* *.
3. Press 9 9 2.
3. Press the Device Mode key for the type of device you
want to control (e.g. for a TV, press a).
4. Press the Device Mode key you want to use (e.g. z).
5. Don’t forget to set up the CR102 to control the
second device, using one of the methods on page 25.
If you want to override these locked default settings – to
control a third-party DVD player, for example – you will
first need to unlock DVD Mode before setting up the
CR102 using one of the methods described at the start
of this guide.
Here are the factory default settings:
Device Mode
Note that volume punch-through is not applied to a
Device Mode that has been copied using Mode Mover.
However, volume punch-through functionality can be
restored when you have used Mode Mover, by copying
-, + and @ from the AMP Device Mode to the
same physical buttons on the new moved Device Mode
using the last example shown in Key Mover.
To restore a moved Device Mode key to its
original state
1. Press and hold S until the power LED blinks twice:
* *.
2. Press 9 9 2.
3. Press the Device Mode key you want to restore
twice.

or in the case of code clashes with other manufacturer’s
products.
For example:

You will need to change the system code on the product
you wish to control, as well as the CR102.
NOTE
The AMP Device Mode can only be used to control
Arcam amplifiers like the AVR500, AVR600 and
AV888, either on its default or alternative IR system
codes.

To toggle a Device Mode lock setting:
1. Press the Device Mode key you want to unlock (e.g.
d)
2. Press and hold S until the power LED blinks twice:
* *.
3. Press 9 8 2.
<The power LED blinks twice when being locked, and
blinks four times when being unlocked.
<If you enter an invalid key sequence, the power
LED gives one long blink and returns to normal
operation.
While the Device Mode key is locked, the Direct Code
Setup and Move Mode functions are not available.
The Mode key IR punch-through default is ‘on’.

The tables that begin on page 58 (in the final section of
this Handbook) list the four-figure codes for different
manufacturers’ devices.
Use these when setting your CR102 up to control your
devices, as described in Method 1 (see page 25).
If more than one code number is listed, try the first
number. If the results are unsatisfactory, continue trying
the numbers for that manufacturer to get the best ‘fit’
with the functionality required.
If the manufacturer of your equipment is not listed, you
can try Method 2, the Library Search (see page 25). This
allows you to scan through every set of codes contained
in the CR102’s memory.
