PLEASE READ BEFORE INSTALLING
WARNING: to prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose this unit to rain or moisture. Care should be
taken to prevent objects or liquid from entering the enclosure. Never handle the power cord with wet
hands.
•
The lightning flash with arrowhead, within an equilateral triangle, is intended to alert the user of the presence
of uninsulated “dangerous voltage” within the product’s enclosure that may constitute a risk of electric shock
to you. The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user of the presence of
important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the unit.
•
Caution: To prevent the risk of electric shock, do not remove cover. No user-serviceable parts inside. Refer
servicing to qualified service personnel.
•
If an outdoor antenna is connected to the antenna input, be sure it is grounded to provide some protection
against voltage surges and built up static charges. Keep the outdoor antenna away from power lines.
•
Unplug the receiver from the AC outlet when plugging in or unplugging cables, when left unused for an
extended period of time, moving the receiver, or when you suspect lightning in your area.
•
Prevent damage to the power cord. Do not bend, pull, place objects on, alter, etc. Replace the power cord if it
becomes damaged. Always grasp the plug on the power cord when plugging in or unplugging the receiver
from the AC outlet.
•
Your system may produce sound levels capable of causing permanent hearing loss. Do not operate for
extended periods of time at high volume levels.
•
Make sure the receiver is placed on a level surface.
•
Protect the receiver from impact. (Do not drop it!!!)
•
Do not climb on top of the receiver or place heavy objects on its top cover.
•
The receiver is equipped with raised feet to provide ventilation, reduce acoustic feedback, and provide
protection against scratching the surface the unit is resting on. We advise against removing or altering feet.
•
Do not stack anything on top of the receiver (processor, source, etc.) Leave a minimum of 3” clearance from
the top of the receiver to the next shelf (or component).
•

THE BASICS
The following is intended to familiarize users with common terms and applications of Home Theater equipment.
Sources - your receiver can provide audio from its built-in AM/FM tuner. It can also provide limited video from its
on-screen menu system. You will want to connect a number of additional sources (VCR, DVD player, etc.) to your
receiver. Your receiver is designed to accommodate a wide range of audio and video signals.
The following table lists the most popular home theater media and how the audio information is stored.

Analog vs. Digital Audio - This refers to the method used to place audio information on the source material and
how they are delivered to your receiver from the source. Analog signals exactly represent the sound you will hear
through a continuously varying voltage. Audio and videocassettes are analog recordings and are normally
delivered to your receiver over a pair of coaxial audio cables.
Digital signals closely approximate the original audio signals with a set of numbers referred to as a bitstream. CDs
and DVDs are sources of digital audio and are normally connected to your receiver through a coaxial or optical
digital cable. There are several different bitstream formats available. The simplest format is called Pulse Code
Modulation (PCM). In PCM, the bitstream directly represents the original 2-channel audio. In Dolby Digital and
DTS (see “Surround Formats” below) bitstreams are modified using a process called compression to squeeze
more information into limited space. DTS squeezes 5.1 channels into the space normally required for two
uncompressed channels, while Dolby Digital squeezes 5.1 channels into about ¼ the space required for two
channels. Your receiver automatically detects the bitstream currently being provided from the source and
performs the required decompression and surround processing. If no digital signal is present your receiver will
automatically switch to analog processing.
All sounds that you hear from your speakers are analog. Digital signals are automatically converted to analog by
your receiver before being output to your the speakers.
If analog signals exactly represent the audio, while digital signals only approximate it, why would I want to use
digital?
All analog sources add some amount of noise and distortion to the audio signal. Additional noise can be picked up
through the cables from the source to your receiver. It is impossible for the receiver to tell the difference between
the desired signal and the added noise and distortion, so it reproduces both of them. The result is increased
background noise and decreased dynamic range and fidelity. Digital signals are virtually immune to noise and
distortion. The receiver can, therefore, reproduce the signal with the greatest possible fidelity. We recommend
you use digital signals wherever possible. Also Dolby Digital and DTS (see “Surround Formats” below) work only
with digital signals.
Audio and Surround Formats - Your source material will be in one of seven possible formats described below.
Monaural (Mono) - This is the oldest format available. It contains a single, full range audio channel. Modern
recordings are seldom made in this format, but older movies and music are available only in this format. You may
get mono from any source - digital or analog. Sound will normally come from the seven speaker channels, but
your receiver can produce mono in one to seven channels (see “Audio Modes under Operation”). Since all
modern sources are stereo, the mono information is usually replicated from both the left and right channels.
4
Stereo - Stereo contains two discrete, front left and right full range audio channels. This is the most common
format for music and is also used on many movies. You may get stereo from any source - digital or analog. Sound
will normally come from the seven speaker channels, but your receiver can produce stereo in one (mono) to
seven channels (see “Audio Modes under Operation”).
Dolby Pro Logic - Dolby Pro Logic is a refinement of Dolby Surround, which was the earliest form of true
surround processing. Like Stereo, Dolby Surround contains two discrete, full range audio channels. In addition, a
monaural, limited range surround channel is encoded on the two stereo channels in a process called matrixing.
The surround channel information is encoded in positive polarity on the left channel and in negative polarity on the
right channel. The Dolby Processor can detect this encoding (left minus right) and send that information to the
surround channels. Dolby Pro Logic adds additional processing to produce a full range center channel by
extracting the mono information from the left and right channel. This is the most common format for all but the
most recent movies. Music sources are occasionally encoded in Dolby Surround. However, many people prefer to
use Pro Logic processing on all of their stereo sources. The center channel extraction process often yields
improved stereo imaging, especially when you are sitting away from the “sweet spot” at center of the listening
area. The surround channel processing often lends a pleasing ambiance even to material that is not encoded in
Dolby Surround. Dolby Pro Logic is fully compatible with stereo and you may get it from any source - digital or
analog. Sound will normally come from all seven speakers in your system, but your receiver can produce sound in
one (mono) to seven channels (see “Audio Modes under Operation”).
Dolby Pro Logic II - Pro Logic II brings exciting new features and advanced performance for decoding the many
thousands of existing Dolby Surround programs, making them sound more like a discrete Dolby Digital 5.1channel version than ever before. Pro Logic II is able to decode the thousands of existing Dolby Surround movies
and TV shows already on the shelf, compatibly, and with enhanced image stability. The improvements in
decoding techniques mean that the discreteness of the sound field elements are better preserved in the decoding
process than was possible with the now universally standard Pro Logic technology. Pro Logic II offers a music
mode to expand stereo non-matrix recordings into a five-channel layout in a way that does not diminish the
subtlety and integrity of the original stereo recordings.
Dolby Digital - Dolby Digital contains up to five discrete, full range audio channels plus an additional Low
Frequency Effects (LFE) channel. The LFE channel contains only low frequency information for enhanced sound
effects in movies. This combination of five discrete channels plus a LFE channel is often referred to as 5.1
channels. Dolby Digital is a digital format only. It must be delivered to your receiver over a coaxial or optical digital
cable. As of the writing of this manual, Dolby Digital is commercially available on DVD and Satellite (Also see
Dolby Digital RF below). It is also possible to create your own Dolby Digital CDs and DATs if you have the
recording equipment. You can’t directly record Dolby Digital onto mini disc or digital compact cassette since these
devices add their own compression, which is incompatible with the Dolby Digital compression. Not all Dolby
Digital recordings will include all five channels, and, in fact, it is common on DVDs to have two channel Dolby
Digital with or without Pro Logic processing. Sound will normally come from all seven speakers in your system,
but your receiver can produce sound in one (mono) to seven channels (see “Audio Modes under Operation”).
Dolby Digital RF - Dolby Digital RF is identical to normal Dolby Digital except that it uses a special RF encoding
scheme to put the bitstream on Laser discs without replacing the normal stereo (or Dolby Surround) PCM
bitstream that is normally available from laser disc. In order to use Dolby Digital RF laser discs you must have a
B&K DT-1 RF demodulator or similar product from another manufacturer. For best results with your receivers Plug
and Play capability we recommend the B&K DT-1.
Dolby Digital Surround EX - Dolby Digital Surround EX is a new movie sound track that greatly enhances the
sense of spatial and positioning of the surround channel sound. This system was developed jointly by Lucasfilm
THX and Dolby Laboratories, using Lucas film’s idea of improving spatial expression and achieving a 360-degree
sound positioning with Dolby Laboratories’ matrix encoding technology. The surround back channel is matrixencoded and inserted into both Dolby Digital SL (surround left) and Dolby Digital SR (surround right) channels.
Upon playback, the signals may be decoded by a high precision digital matrix decoder within the Dolby Digital
decoder into SL, SR and SB channels.
DTS (Digital Theater Systems) - DTS is similar to Dolby Digital in that it provides 5.1 discrete audio channels.
However, it uses more digital data to encode the information and may provide greater fidelity than Dolby Digital.
DTS is a digital format only. It must be delivered to your receiver over a coaxial or optical digital cable. No RF
demodulator is required for DTS laser discs since the DTS bitstream replaces the normal PCM bitstream. Like
Dolby Digital, you can create your own DTS DATs or CDs but not mini disc or digital compact cassette. As with
Dolby Digital, sound will normally come from all seven speakers in your system, but your receiver can produce
sound in one (mono) to seven channels (see “Audio Modes under Operation”).
5
DTS NEO:6 – DTS Neo:6 is an advanced matrix decoder. It will take any two-channel source and expand it into
five or six channels, depending on the user’s speaker layout. Two-channel sources include VHS tapes, broadcast
television, stereo CDs and DVDs. DTS Neo:6 provides separate, optimized modes for stereo music materials and
matrix surround motion picture soundtracks. DTS Neo:6 also decodes a center-surround channel from Extended
Surround matrix soundtracks.
DTS-ES (Extended Surround) - Extended Surround adds a center-surround channel to the existing 5.1-channel
array. DTS-ES brings these soundtracks into the home in DTS quality and is the only home format that can
deliver all 6.1 channels as discrete. DTS-ES is fully compatible with all types of multi-channel systems. All sounds
will be heard, whether played back as discrete, matrix or on a 5.1 system.
DTS 96/24 – More recording is being done at a 96kHz sampling rate and at 24 bits. DTS has always had 24 bit
capability, and DTS 96/24 adds the 96kHz capability. It is fully compatible with existing DTS encoders, which will
output 96/24 tracks at 48 kHz. DTS 96/24 is the only system that provides 5.1 channels of 96/24 along with fullmotion video on DVD-Video and DVD-Audio (video zone). It is also compatible with all DVD-Video players, and is
accessible through the digital output.
DVD Audio (also referred to as MLP) - Meridian Lossless Packing (MLP) is a lossless coding system for highquality linear PCM audio. For DVD-Audio MLP performs lossless compression of up to 6 channels of up to 24-bit
material sampled at rates between 44.1kHz and 192kHz. Lossless coding does not alter the final signal; it ‘packs’
the audio data into a smaller rate and space. Currently, DVD Audio can only be delivered to your receiver via the
analog 5.1 inputs. Sound will normally come from all seven speakers in your system, but your receiver can
produce sound in one (mono) to seven channels (see “Audio Modes under Operation”).
Home THX Cinema Processing - THX is an exclusive set of standards and technologies established by the
world-renowned film production company, Lucasfilm Ltd. THX grew from George Lucas’ personal desire to make
your experience of the film soundtrack, in both movie and in your home theater, as faithful as possible to whatever
the director intended.
Movie soundtracks are mixed in special movie theaters called dubbing stages and are designed for playback in
movie theaters using similar equipment and conditions. The soundtrack created for movie theaters is then directly
put onto reproducible media, DVD, VHS tape Laser disc, etc. with no changes to account for playback in a smaller
home theater environment.
THX engineers developed patented technologies to accurately translate the sound from the movie theater
environment into the home, correcting for the tonal and spatial errors that occur. While Home THX Cinema mode
is active, THX processing is added after the Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Digital or DTS decoder.
Sound will normally come from all seven speakers in your system, but your receiver can produce sound in one
(mono) to seven channels (see “Audio Mode”).
Re-Equalization™ - restores the correct tonal balance for watching a movie soundtrack in a small home theater.
Timbre Matching™ - filters the information going to the surround speakers so that they more closely match the
tonal characteristics of the sound coming from the front speakers. This ensures seamless panning from the front
to surround speakers.
Adaptive Decorrelation™ - slightly changes one surround channel’s time and phase relationship with respect to
the other surround channel. This expands the listening position and creates a more spatial sense using only two
speakers.
6
THX Surround EX ™ - Dolby Digital Surround EX is a joint development of Dolby Laboratories and the THX
division of Lucasfilm Ltd.
In a movie theater, film soundtracks that have been encoded with Dolby Digital Surround EX technology are able
to reproduce an extra channel, which has been added during the mixing of the program. This channel, called
Surround Back, places sounds behind the listener in addition to the currently available front left, front center, front
right, surround right, surround left and subwoofer channels. This additional channel provides the opportunity for
more detailed imaging behind the listener and brings more depth, spacious ambiance and sound localization than
ever before.
When released to the home consumer market, movies that were created using the Dolby Digital Surround EX
technology, may have a note to that effect on the packaging. A list of movies created using this technology can be
found on the Dolby web site at http://www.dolby.com/.
Only receiver and controller products bearing the THX Surround EX logo, when in the THX Surround EX mode,
faithfully reproduce this new technology in the home.
This product may also engage the “THX Surround EX” mode during the playback of 5.1 channel material that is
not Dolby Digital Surround EX encoded. In such case the information delivered to the Surround Back channel will
be program dependent and may or may not be very pleasing depending on the particular soundtrack and the
tastes of the individual listener.
Ultra 2 ™ - THX Ultra2 is a breakthrough technology which allows an entertainment system to accommodate
current and future multi-channel formats for both music and movies. THX Ultra2 specification provides
uncompromised eight-channel playback of multi-channel program material, whether movie soundtracks or music
over the widest possible seating area. In addition, all Ultra2 certified receivers and controllers must incorporate
video switching capable of handling wide-bandwidth sources, including HDTV and progressive scan DVD, without
degrading the picture. THX Ultra2 uses seven channels of amplification to playback multi-channel-encoded
program for use in a single fixed seven-speaker/one subwoofer home theater system. In THX Ultra 2 Cinema
mode or THX MusicMode, program material with 5.1 channels or more is auto-detected and additional processing
is applied to blend the directional and ambient surround information for playback with two surround side speakers
and two surround back speakers.
Boundary Gain Compensation ™ - Room boundaries such as walls and other acoustic obstacles may increase
the perceived volume levels of low frequencies. Depending where the listener or the subwoofer is located, the
listener may experience excess bass level. Boundary Gain Compensation allows a means to adjust for excessive
bass resulting from a boundary gain effect. The Boundary Gain Compensation feature is designed to operate
when used with a subwoofer certified to THX Ultra2 specifications
Advanced Speaker Array ™ (ASA) - In THX Ultra2 Cinema and THX MusicMode, ASA performs additional
processing to optimize the use of surround side and surround back speakers in a home theater system.
THX Ultra2 ™ Cinema mode - Processing a multichannel digital signal (Dolby Digital, DTS, etc.), this mode plays
back 5.1 and 6.1 encoded movies for use with up to 8 speakers to give an enhanced movie watching experience.
In this mode, ASA processing technology is used to blend the surround side speakers with the surround back
speakers to provide an optimal mix of ambient and directional surround sounds. THX's ASA circuitry will
automatically detect DTS-ES (Matrix and 6.1 Discrete) and Dolby Digital Surround EX encoded soundtracks and
apply the required ASA processing for playback using 8 speakers.
THX MusicMode ™ - DVDs encoded for music content typically have their surround sounds mixed differently
than the surround sounds mixed for movie soundtracks. In this mode ASA processing technology is used to
optimize the playback of 5.1 encoded music material, i.e. DTS, Dolby Digital and DVD-Audio, for playback using 8
speakers. THX MusicMode provides a stable wide rear soundstage with surround sounds best suited for music
playback.

Bass Management - Dolby Digital and DTS-ES formats may contain up to 6 full range channels plus LFE. Only a
system with six full-range (large) speakers plus a subwoofer can directly reproduce these formats. However,
almost all commercially available center channel speakers are small and incapable of reproducing the lowest
bass frequencies without distortion or even damage to the speaker. Many people also use small speakers in the
rear of their system, while others use small speakers all around. Use of a subwoofer is almost mandatory when
using five small speakers, but people with at least two large speakers may or may not choose to use a subwoofer.
Some people may not use a center channel or surround speakers at all. In order to handle any possible
combination of large, small, or missing speakers, a home theater system must contain good bass management, a
concept often missing from two-piece systems where the Dolby Digital or DTS decoder is separate from the
preamp. Your receiver contains a complete bass management system. You can use as few as two large front left
and right speakers or two small left and right speakers plus a subwoofer or as many as seven full range speakers
plus a subwoofer or any combination in between without missing any information. Wherever small speakers are
used the bass management system prevents low bass information from going to that speaker (“high pass”). This
bass information is rerouted to a speaker that can handle it, usually a subwoofer, but it can also send center,
surround, or LFE bass to large front speakers if no subwoofer is available. When center or surround speakers are
not used at all, the missing channel is sent (“down mixed”) to the front speakers.
Preamp - A preamp typically includes the capability to select from a number of sources, adjust volume levels and
route the data to an amplifier. Your receiver includes a high quality preamp.
Processor - A processor typically includes the capability to decode one or more surround formats, and convert
between digital and analog as required. Your A/V receiver includes a high quality processor capable of decoding
the surround formats described above.
Zone - A zone is usually a room that has speakers installed in it. Your receiver includes a full preamp/processor
for Zone 1 plus an additional analog stereo preamp for Zone 2. This allows, for example, watching a Dolby Digital
movie in zone one while simultaneously using the built-in AM/FM tuner in another room.
Amplifier - An amplifier takes the output of a preamp/processor and increases its level to that necessary to drive
a speaker.
Speakers - A surround sound system use to typically uses 5 speakers located left front, center front, right front,
right surround, and left surround plus a subwoofer located anywhere in the room. With the new developments in
surround technology from companies such as Dolby Laboratories, DTS, and Lucasfilm, it is now possible to
improve spatial expressions with an additional channel of information for use with a 6th and/or 7th surround back
speaker. Although best results are achieved using seven large speakers plus a subwoofer, this is not always
practical. Excellent results can be achieved using small and/or fewer speakers, as long as you go through the set
up procedures described later in the manual. Your receiver includes the capability of reproducing up to 6.1
channels of surround information.
Component video vs. S-video vs. Composite video - Composite video is the oldest standard for color video. It
combines the luminance (brightness or black-and-white) and chrominance (color) information onto a single
conductor. These signals must be separated again for display resulting in some degradation of the video quality.
S-video is a newer standard that uses separate conductors for the luminance (Y) and chrominance (C)
information resulting in better video quality. Component video is the newest form of video introduced with DVD.
This video format uses separate conductors for luminance (Y), red - luminance (R - Y), and blue - luminance (B Y). Using these signals a component video capable monitor allows for even better and higher resolution video
quality. Your receiver is capable of switching composite, S-video and component signals, but it cannot convert
between video types. In addition, your receiver is capable of switching between three pairs of component video
inputs.

MAKING THE CONNECTION
It’s tempting to just plug in your new A/V receiver and have great sound pour out. Before you do that, take a few
minutes to plan out how you want the receiver to fit into your audio/video system. Ask yourself the following
questions:
What source components do I want to connect to my receiver? (CD, VCR, etc.)
What equipment will be receiving the audio and video? (TV monitor, Speakers, etc.)
The answers to your questions determine how many cables you need to connect to the back of the receiver.
Good preplanning equals great sound. Keep these recommendations in mind:
List all components in your system and indicate which jacks of the receiver each component will be connected
to. Your receiver has seven sets of inputs. It is convenient to connect a DVD player to the input labeled DVD
or a VCR to the input labeled V1 or TAPE, etc. However, your equipment may differ from the labeling on the
back of your receiver. In most cases you can connect any type of source to any input (see FREQUENTLY
ASKED QUESTIONS). For example, if you don’t have a satellite receiver you can connect a DAT player or a
second cassette deck to SAT. You can also reprogram the source name that will appear on your receiver’s
front panel and on-screen display (see SYSTEM SETUP - INPUTS)
Also note the length of the cable for each component’s connection and describe how it should be routed or
draw your routing scheme below your list. You may want to label each cable with a name or number at both
ends. Use high quality connections to maintain high quality audio and video.
Think about the type and length of cable you need and obstacles in the cable’s path (doorways, furniture,
walkways, etc.). To decide which ones are right for you talk to your dealer about the various cable products
that are available.
For safety, keep all cables out of high traffic areas (hallways or doorways) and away from equipment that
radiates power, including amplifiers, power cords, heaters, etc.
If you might expand your audio/video system later, keep these ideas in mind as you plan current cable runs.
To provide the best tuner reception, make sure the antenna is at least several feet away from the receiver and
any other equipment that may produce high frequency interference such as Personal computers, CD players,
halogen lamps, etc.
Take a look at the back panel of the receiver. You will notice that the RCA-type audio input and output connectors
are identified by colors, red for right channel and white for left channel audio. Red/White/Grey identifies the
surround outputs. Red/Green/Blue identifies component video input and output connectors. Composite video
input and output connectors are identified by yellow. Coaxial digital inputs are identified by orange.

AUDIO / VIDEO CONNECTIONS
Connecting your analog sources to your receiver
Audio / Video source - connecting a DVD/VLD player to the receiver’s analog inputs. Use the same instructions
for connecting to other audio / video sources such as a satellite receiver, cable box, etc. See Connecting Video
for use with other than composite and S-video (Omit the video connections for an audio-only component such as
a CD player.)
Attach one end of the audio interconnect cable to the left audio
output on the DVD/VLD player, then attach the other end to the
left (white) DVD/VLD audio input on the receiver. Repeat for the
right (red) audio connection. Attach one end of the composite

Component Video - in addition to S-video and composite video switching, your receiver provides three sets of
component video inputs for DVD and TV/DBS type inputs, and one set of component video outputs. Your
receiver’s component video connections are passive to minimize the possibility of video format compatibility
issues. Use the same instructions to connect a second and third (TV/DBS) component video device.

ZB
The Control outputs are programmable for each source in your system (see “Advanced Setup”). However, the
receiver provides the following factory preprogrammed setup that should serve for most standard system
applications.
Control 1 - HEADPHONE. On (+12 VDC) when Zone 1 is on and not in Headphone mode, off when Zone 1 is off
or in Headphone Mode. This mode may be used for controlling external amplifiers or powered subwoofers in Zone
1.
Control 2 - Zone 2. On (+12 VDC) when Zone 2 is on, off (0 VDC) when Zone 2 is off. This mode is used for
controlling external amplifiers, projection screens, etc. in Zone 2.
Control 3 - Z1 + Z2. On (+12 VDC) when Zone 1, Zone 2, or both zones are turned on. Off (0 VDC) when both
zones are off.
Control 4 -REMOTE. It will repeat a received 38 kHz modulated IR signal. The receiver will transmit received IR
signals even in sleep mode.
Note - The control outputs can output a maximum of 50 mA. Check to see that the source you are connecting to
the control out requires 50 mA or less current.
WARNING - Not all manufacturers adhere to the +12 VDC control specification. Check to see if your
sources control inputs are +12 VDC compatible. Do not connect your receiver’s control outputs to a
source with control or remote inputs rated at +5 VDC or other voltage rating. Damage to your source may
result.
IR Inputs - Your receiver can be controlled by a directly connected IR repeater system in combination with or in
place of the supplied remote control. Connect your IR input cable to the receiver using a mono 3.5 mm jack
shown above. The plug must be wired as tip (+) and the long barrel section (-). The inputs are standard 38kHz
modulated IR type with a voltage range of +5 to +12 VDC.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
My collection of equipment differs from the labels on the back of my receiver, how can I hook them up?
Your receiver provides 5 identical sets of inputs - V1, V2, DVD, CD, and SAT. Each of these has analog
audio, composite video, S-video, coaxial digital audio, and optical digital audio. It is convenient to connect
components as labeled on the back of your receiver, but since all the inputs are identical, you can connect any
compatible source to any set of inputs. For example, you can connect a DAT player to V1 instead of a VCR. You
can program your receiver to display any 5 character name for any input (see System Setup - Inputs).
The sixth input, TV, is identical to the others except that there is no optical digital. You can also connect
portables to any other coaxial digital input using adapters or special cables. If you have a source with only optical
digital output don’t connect it to TV.
The seventh input, TAPE, has analog audio, composite video and S-video, but has no digital inputs. It is
primarily intended for analog recorders such as VCRs or cassette decks. If you have a three-head cassette or
reel-to-reel tape deck you will prefer the TAPE input since it allows a full tape monitor capability. Tape monitor
allows you to listen to what is actually on the tape as you are recording it. The V2 input also provides full tape
monitor capabilities for Zone 2. If you don’t use Zone 2 you can use V2 as a second independent analog tape
monitor loop. V1 includes a line level output but does not provide true tape monitor capability.
My DVD player (or other source) has both optical and coaxial digital outputs. Should I connect both?
No, connect only one digital cable per source.
Do I need an AC-3 RF demodulator (B&K DT-1 or equivalent) to playback Dolby Digital
DVDs?
No, this is required only for Dolby Digital laser discs.
Do I need an AC-3 RF demodulator (B&K DT-1 or equivalent) to playback DTS laser discs?
No, this is required only for Dolby Digital laser discs.
Do I need to connect both analog and digital audio from my DVD player (or other digital audio source) to
the receiver?
In general, it is simpler to connect both. However, if you can meet all of the following criteria you need
only connect digital:
1. I do not use Zone 2. (Zone 2 is analog only - if you use Zone 2 you must connect both left and right
analog to hear audio.)
2. I do not own any old laser discs. (Early laser discs contained only analog audio tracks - you must
connect both left and right analog audio to play these back.)
3. I do not use Tape Monitor. (It is possible to tape digital-only sources. However, if you wish to listen
directly to the tape as you are recording - you must connect both left and right analog audio - the tape
monitor loops are strictly analog.)
If the tape monitor loop is strictly analog, how do I make an analog recording of a digital-only source?
Do not select TAPE. Select the source you wish to record. Select STEREO 9, the LtRt mode. If that
source is digital, the converted digital-to-analog will appear at the tape and V1 outputs. V2 out, like Zone 2 out, is
analog only. (See Operation - Audio Mode.)
I want to make direct digital recordings from my CD player (or other digital source) on my CD Recorder,
DAT (or other digital recorder). Can my receiver make this connection for me?
Yes, your receiver’s digital outputs act much like the analog tape outputs. When you select a source, if
that source has a digital connection to your receiver, then that digital signal will appear on the receiver’s coaxial
and optical digital outputs. Simply connect all of your sources digital outputs to your receiver’s digital inputs. You
can then connect up to three digital recorder inputs to your receiver’s three digital outputs.
19
My laser disc player (or other digital source) has only optical output, but my CD recorder (or other digital
recorder) has only coaxial input. Do I need some sort of converter to make direct digital recordings?
No, your receiver will convert optical to coaxial and coaxial to optical. The currently selected digital input
(optical or coaxial) will appear at both of the receiver’s digital outputs (optical and coaxial).
Do I need to connect both analog and digital audio from my receiver to my CD, DAT, MD, etc. recorder?
In general, yes. If all of the sources you wish to record are digital, then you need only connect digital to
your recorder. However, your receiver does not provide digital outputs for non-digital inputs. If you wish make a
digital recording from an analog-only source you must also connect analog from your receiver (Tape or V1 out) to
your recorder.
Can I connect a phonograph directly to my receiver?
No, you will need a separate outboard phono preamplifier. The output of the phono preamp can then be
connected to any analog input on your receiver. We recommend our Phono 10 phono preamp. In addition to its
superb analog audio processing, it has an option for S/PDIF coax output. Talk to the dealer where you purchased
your receiver.
Do I need to connect both S-video and composite video to my receiver?
If all of your video equipment has S-video then you need only connect S-video. S-video is a higher quality
video format and you will probably not want to use composite. If all or most of your video equipment is composite
then it is simplest to just connect the composite and omit S-video.
Can I connect mixed composite and S-video sources?
Yes, but your receiver will not convert S-video to composite or composite to S-video. If your monitors and
VCRs accept only composite video then there is no point in connecting S-video from other sources. If you use
mixed S-video and composite sources you must connect both S-video and composite to your monitors and VCRs.
You will need to change your monitor or VCR S-video / composite inputs manually when you change sources.
This can normally be done via the monitor’s or VCR’s remote control (or the supplied universal remote). Some
monitors or VCRs may require you to physically disconnect S-video before they will accept composite video.
Some monitors are capable of automatic switching between S-video and composite. Your receiver must be setup
properly in order to work with auto switching monitors - refer Setup Displays.
To assist you, the receiver’s on-screen display will tell you what video is currently selected whenever you
change sources or hit the SEL (remote) or ENTER (remote or front panel) key, but it cannot switch your monitor
or VCR input for you. If you are watching S-video, but the source is composite video only, you will see “Switch
Monitor to Composite” on your Monitor. If you are watching Composite video but your source is S-video only, you
will see “Switch Monitor to S-video” on your monitor. These displays appear only if your receiver is setup for
manual monitors.
Can I connect mixed composite and S-video monitors and VCRs?
Yes, but you must connect both S-video and composite from all of your sources - your receiver will not
convert between S-video and composite. Refer to the previous question if not all of your sources have both Svideo and composite outputs.
For example, it is common to have an S-video monitor and a composite VCR. Connect the monitor to the
Zone 1 S-video and composite outputs and the VCR to the V1 or TAPE composite output. The composite inputs
will appear at the composite outputs for TAPE and V1. (The S-video inputs also appear at the TAPE and V1 Svideo outputs, but, in this example, they are not connected.) To prevent feedback, TAPE IN will not appear on
TAPE OUT and V1 IN will not appear on V1 OUT - this also applies to the audio outputs. Zone 2 works the same
for Zone 2 OUT and V2 OUT with feedback prevention on V2.
Things get a bit more complicated for the Zone 1 output because it contains your receiver’s internal onscreen display system. You must be sure that you tell your receiver if you have a monitor which can automatically
switch between S-video and composite outputs, or one which must be manually switched (see Setup Displays).
20
SETUP
For best results, perform the following set up procedure when you initially install your receiver and anytime you
change or add sources, speakers, etc. or when you rearrange your listening area
THE MENU SYSTEM
Setup of your receiver will require you to navigate through the menu system. We recommend that you use a video
monitor connected to the Zone 1 output along with the remote control provided with your receiver. It is also
possible to set up your receiver from the front panel. Do not leave your video monitor on with the receiver in the
menu system for long periods of time. This can result in permanently burning the menu display into your monitor’s
screen. This would take several hours so there is no danger of it happening during normal setup procedures. The
following are general instructions for using the menu system. A complete guide to the menu system is included at
the back of this manual.
MENU - If you are not already in the menu system, the MENU button will activate the menu system. Once you are
in the menu system, the MENU button will return you to the next higher-level menu or, if you are already at the
highest level, it will exit from the menu system.
UP/DOWN ARROWS - Once you are in the menu system, use the UP/DOWN ARROWS to move to the desired
menu selection. The currently active menu line is highlighted in a contrasting color.
SEL (remote) or ENTER (remote or front panel) - Some menu selections cause another menu to be activated.
Use the UP/DOWN ARROWS to move to the desired menu line. Pressing SEL or ENTER will activate the next
menu.
NUMERIC KEYS (remote only) - From the remote control you may also go directly to a menu line by typing the
corresponding line number. If there is another menu below that line it will be activated immediately (no ENTER
required).
LEFT/RIGHT ARROWS (remote) or VOLUME KNOB (front panel) - Some menu selections allow you to change
one of the receiver settings. Use the UP/DOWN ARROWS to move to the desired menu line. Pressing the
LEFT/RIGHT ARROWS will change the setting. There are no LEFT/RIGHT ARROWS on the front panel. While in
the menu system, the VOLUME KNOB acts as the LEFT/RIGHT ARROWS. This means that you will not be able
to adjust the volume from the front panel while in the menu system. The remote control volume will work in most
menus.
TEXT EDITING - some menu selections will require you to edit text. Use the UP/DOWN ARROWS to change the
current (blinking) character. Use the LEFT/RIGHT ARROWS (or VOLUME KNOB) to move to another character
position. Additionally, while in the edit text mode, a successive press of a numeric key allows selecting between
numbers, letters and/or symbols. The selection options for each of the numeric keys are as follows:
0 [-, +, /, ?, space]; 1 [A, B, C, a, b, c]; 2 [D, E, F, d, e, f]; 3 [G, H, I, g, h, i]; 4 [J, K, L, j, k, l];
5 [M, N, O, m, n, o]; 6 [P, Q, R, p, q, r]; 7 [S, T, U, s, t, u]; 8 [V, W, X, v, w, x]; 9 [Y, Z, y, z].
EXIT (remote only) - From the remote control you may instantly EXIT the menu system.
UNIVERSAL REMOTE - Remember that when you press a source button (DVD, CD, etc.) the remote now
controls the selected device. To return control to your receiver, you must press B&K or AUDIO. ALWAYS check
that your remote is set to B&K or (AUDIO) before attempting to control your receiver. B&K or (AUDIO) will
be displayed in the remote’s LCD window.
21
SYSTEM SETUP
You should always perform System Setup after first installing your receiver and after adding/changing speakers or
sources or rearranging your listening area. Check that the remote is in B&K mode.

Speakers
The speaker’s menu lets you tell your receiver how many speakers you have in your system, the relative size of
the speakers, and their location in the room. This is the most important setup procedure you will perform. The
receiver comes from the factory setup for 7 small speakers and a subwoofer. If this does not match your speakers
then audio information will be lost. For example, if you do not currently have a center channel speaker and you do
not perform this setup procedure, the center channel information will be lost. If you perform this setup correctly,
the receiver will know that you have no center channel speaker and send this information to your front left and
right speakers (along with the normal front left and right information) so no audio information is lost.
Speaker Size
Speaker size generally refers to the size of your speakers. Audio material, particularly Dolby Digital and DTS
movies, often contain large amounts of bass. If this bass information is sent to small speakers that are incapable
of reproducing so much bass, then the bass information will be lost or distorted. TOO MUCH BASS MAY
DAMAGE MANY SMALL SPEAKERS. By telling your receiver the size of your speakers, it will be able to
intelligently route the bass to speakers that can reproduce it correctly. Typically, all bookshelf or satellite speakers
are considered small. Smaller floor standing speakers with single woofers 8” or less should also be considered
small. Floor standing speakers with 10” or larger woofers or multiple smaller woofers may be considered large.
These are general guidelines only - if you are unsure consult your speaker manufacturer or check with the dealer
if they are unsure. If you have all small speakers we strongly recommend use of a subwoofer. If your front left and
right speakers (or more) are large then you may not require a subwoofer, but you may still get better results using
a subwoofer, especially with Dolby Digital and DTS movies. All THX certified speakers are small, regardless of
their physical size, and should be used in audio systems along with a subwoofer.
22
Set the size for your front left and right, ‘L’ and ’R’ speakers - You must have front speakers.

Setup your subwoofer ‘SW’ - In the table above, you have the flexibility to choose how bass information is
distributed to your speakers only if you have large speakers and a subwoofer as part of your home theater
speaker system. For example, selecting the "Front Large” and "Subwoofer Yes THX" options, bass from the front
left and front right channels will go ONLY to the front left and front right speakers. Bass going to the subwoofer
will only come from the LFE channel and any channels with speakers that you have designated as "Small". This
selection is preferred by THX. However, selecting the "Front Large” and “Subwoofer Ultra" options, you will send
the bass from the front left and right channels to the front left, right AND subwoofer speakers simultaneously. To
decide which setting is best for your room, once you have positioned all of your speakers, choose the option that
gives you the most solid sounding bass.
* When the subwoofer is set to None, bass is redirected to remaining large speakers. When no speakers are set
to Large, and the subwoofer is set to None, bass information is lost.

Note: The subwoofer setting affects the routing of front, center, and surround bass information as shown
previously. This table shows the effect of the subwoofer setting with large speakers.
THX Ultra2 Sub - This setting is for use with a subwoofer that is certified to THX Ultra2 specifications. This
setting allows a means to adjust for excessive bass resulting from a boundary gain effect. Room boundaries such
as walls and other acoustic obstacles may increase the perceived volume levels of low frequencies. Depending
where the listener or the subwoofer is located, the listener may experience excess bass level. THX Ultra2 allows
for Boundary Gain Compensation to reduce the boundary gain effect and allows a more natural listening
environment. Select “Yes” if your subwoofer conforms to the THX Ultra2 standard or if the playback capability of
its bass range extends down to 20 Hz. Otherwise, select “No.”

Speaker Location
Ideally your speakers will be the same distance away from your listening area. However, physical limitations
usually require placing the speaker in other than optimum locations. Your receiver contains a means to
electronically move each speaker’s location. This allows for superior reproduction of the directional cues available
during the playback of movie or music. Measure the distance in feet to your speakers and set each speaker
location setting to this distance. Your receiver will electronically “move” each speaker to maintain correct time
alignment with the listening position. You may also change the units to meters, if you prefer.

Speaker Levels
Speaker level calibration allows you to equalize the volume levels of each speaker to make up for differences in
speaker characteristics and distances from the listener to the speakers. For best results it is important that you
perform this calibration when you initially install your receiver, whenever you change speakers, and whenever you
rearrange your listening area. The following adjustment must be done for proper room calibration to THX
reference level. Sit or place the SPL (Sound Pressure Level) meter in your normal listening spot. Check that you
are in SETUP SPEAKERS and that your remote is in B&K mode. Note that if you have turned a speaker OFF in
the SPEAKER SIZE SETUP menu then you will not be able to select that speaker in the SETUP SPEAKER
LEVELS menu. Set the SPL meter to use 75 dB SPL, C Weighting and SLOW response. Adjust each speakers
level up or down to achieve the desired THX reference level of 75 dB SPL.
Note: if you must do this adjustment with out the aid of an SPL meter, you may do it by ear and adjust each
speaker for equal volume. You may wish to go through the speakers several times to get a reasonable result.
Also note that the VOLUME on the remote will not function in this menu.

Crossovers + LFE
Usually these settings may be left set to the factory defaults. However, your receiver allows ‘fine tuning’ of the
system parameters most useful in setting up a high-end audio system.
Set the high and low pass filters’ crossover frequency - This sets the frequency at which bass tones are
removed from the small main speakers and sent to the subwoofer. If you use very small main speakers you may
wish to raise the crossover above 80 Hz. You may get better results with fairly large speakers by setting them to
small and using a low crossover frequency so only the lowest tones are sent to the subwoofer. THX certified
speakers are specifically designed for use with an 80 Hz crossover setting.

Set the high pass filters slope - A crossover doesn’t simply send all content above 81 Hz to the main speakers
and all content below 79 Hz to the sub. Instead there is a gradual transition. The crossover point is the frequency
at which the amount of information in the sub and main speaker is equal. The crossover slope determines how
gradual or abrupt this transition occurs. More gradual slopes generally result in a smoother transition from main to
sub. However, gradual transitions can cause distortion in small main speakers because too much bass is sent to
them. Gradual transitions with higher crossover settings can also cause the perceived location of a sound to move
from the correct main speaker to the sub’s location. THX speakers are specifically designed to use a 24 dB slope
for the subwoofer and a 12 dB slope for the main speakers.

Set your LFE (.1) channel level - Usually this will be set to 0.0 dB (default). However, if you have no subwoofer
you may wish to reduce the low frequency effects (LFE) channel to lessen its contribution to the bass going to
your remaining large speakers. Or, even with a subwoofer, you may just wish to reduce the overall LFE level,
especially in an apartment situation. Note that this affects only the separate LFE (.1) channel available on Dolby
Digital and DTS material it has no effect on the reproduction of normal bass from the front, center, or surround
channels.

Room Equalization
Usually these settings may be left set to the factory defaults. However, theses settings allow for the correction of
various tonal errors that occur during reproduction of audio in a home theater.
The room equalization menu allows for two types of adjustments.
1) A notch filter that allows you to ‘Notch’ or reduce the accentuated bass created in a room using multiple
speakers (see Setting up the notch filter) or the capability to use Boundary Gain Compensation for use with a
THX Ultra2 Subwoofer. The Notch filter is not available for use while Boundary Gain Comp is set to Yes.
2) Variable bass and treble shelving filter controls which allow you to configure a default ‘Variable’ EQ setting that
best suits your listening room needs.

Using the test tone generator - your receiver has a low frequency sine wave generator (20 to 300 Hz) available
as an aid in determining the most offensive frequency to notch. Usually this test tone generator will be used with
the aid of an SPL meter in a similar fashion as that described in Setup Speaker Levels. The tone generator may
also be used to show up any mechanical room vibrations that should be reduced or eliminated. While active, the
generator has adjustable frequency and three selectable output levels.

Setup variable ‘EQ 1’ - allows you to set default bass and treble settings for use with all input sources in all audio
modes excluding DVD Audio. Many systems allow only adjustment of bass and treble levels at fixed frequency
points. Your receiver allows you to adjust level and frequency to aid in adjusting your room for a flat frequency
response. Set bass and treble to the values you would like have restored into the variable ‘EQ 1’ whenever your
unit comes out of sleep (see Select variable ‘EQ 1’ under OPERATION Equalization).

Set subwoofer phase - In addition to the subwoofer location adjustment (see Speaker Location above), your
receiver has an option to ‘invert the phase’ of the information sent to the subwoofer. This adjustment is sometimes
needed to correct ‘lack of low end’ problems created with the interaction between the subwoofer and other large
speakers in a listening room. The correct subwoofer phase adjustment is the one, which allows the loudest
listening level.

Set your Zone 1 monitor video operation - More than likely you have a composite or S-VIDEO monitor, which
will be used to view your selected source’s video. Your receiver has the capability to process BOTH composite
video and S-VIDEO simultaneously. Your receiver DOES NOT convert between composite video and S-VIDEO.
In MANUAL mode your receiver will always send both composite video and S-VIDEO to your Zone 1 monitor.
When your receiver first detects video on a selected source it checks to see if it is composite or S-VIDEO or both.
It then shows a message, which displays the current status as to the incoming video ‘Composite’, ‘S-VIDEO’ or
‘Both Video’, to both video outputs. When no video is available on one of the video formats (composite or SVIDEO), it will send its internal background screen to the monitor and then prompt you if there is video available
using the other video format.
In AUTO mode, your receiver will look for S-VIDEO on the selected source. If it finds S-VIDEO it will send it to
your Zone 1 monitor. Your receiver will also look for composite video on the selected source. If it finds composite
video it will send it to your Zone 1 monitor. If it finds no S-VIDEO on the selected source it will send no video.
Similarly if it finds no composite video on the selected source it will send no video. This allows for the use of your
Monitor’s auto video detection circuit (if available) to select the proper video format for your viewing.

viewing letterbox material on a 16:9 (widescreen) monitor, this information will be cut off. Selecting the 16:9

Set the favorite audio listening mode - Your receiver provides for 5 audio listening modes Mono, Stereo,
Surround, THX and DVD Audio (See AUDIO MODES). You may set a default audio mode and speaker selection
(excluding selection 0 ‘Headphone’, or selection 9 ‘LtRt’) for each of your input sources. When a source is
selected from the remote control or front panel, the audio mode will automatically be set to use this favorite mode
and speaker selection. Note that DVDA mode can only be selected if that input is designated as the DVD audio
input below.

Favorite audio listening mode continued
Setting a favorite listening mode here will not prevent the system from automatically adjusting the listening mode
in response to bitstream information, nor will it prevent the user from changing modes during normal operation. It
is merely the mode that is chosen when that input is initially selected and no additional bitstream information is
available. You can use the favorite Mode/Speakers along with the system’s intelligence to arrive at your optimum
listening modes while seldom needing to manually set modes. For example, you use a DVD player to play music
CDs and DVD movies. You may prefer to listen to music CDs in their original 2-channel stereo, while you prefer
Dolby Digital and DTS DVDs in 6-channel (“EX”) mode. First select Favorite mode and set to Surround and then
select Favorite speakers and set to 6. Next select Favorite mode and set to Stereo and then select Favorite
speakers and set to 2. Your system will now automatically playback PCM (2-channel bitstreams) CDs in twochannel stereo and Dolby Digital or DTS DVDs in Surround 6. And if you temporarily want a different mode, you
can still change it during normal system operation.

Generating a name when saving a preset - When you save a preset, your system automatically generates a
simple name for the preset, which you can then change before confirming the preset save. You may wish to
defeat this automatic naming so that any custom names that you have entered will not get erased each time you
save a minor change to a preset. Turning auto naming off means that the name that is already present in the
preset will be re-used when you save a new preset to that location. If you turn off auto naming you must be very
careful to always enter an appropriate name. Otherwise you can end up with a preset that is named DVD, but
actually recalls the V1 input, or is named FM 96.9 but actually recalls AM 1520!

OPERATION
The following outlines the normal day-to-day operation of your receiver from the supplied universal remote or
directly from your receiver’s front panel. The universal remote is also capable of controlling other equipment and
storing sequences of commonly used commands. Refer to the separate remote manual for details on these
functions.
POWER ON/OFF
The main power switch on the front panel of your receiver must be on for the receiver to operate. When this
switch is off all power is removed from your receiver. This prevents turning it back on with the remote control. You
can use the main power switch for normal day to day operation but we suggest you use the sleep function instead
so that the receiver can be turned on and off from the remote. After turning on the main power you must wait a
few seconds while your receiver restores its internal memory. You may want to turn off the main power switch
when your receiver will be idle for extended periods of time or during periods of power line fluctuations. Your
receiver will not lose its memory while the main power switch is off.

SLEEP
Normally you will simply put your receiver to sleep (standby) when not in use. Sleep mode keeps a bare minimum
of functions running in order to allow remote control operation and fast start up. Note that the front panel SLEEP
button is lit while your receiver is asleep and is off when your receiver is operating. Also note that the remote’s
OFF and ON buttons may also be used to put your receiver in and out of sleep respectively. If using other B&K
remotes, B&K or AUDIO will always wake up your receiver and set the remote to control the receiver

AUDIO MODES
Your receiver is designed to work with 5 audio listening modes. Under normal operation you may simply select
Mono, Stereo, Surround, THX or DVD Audio via the remote control. In addition, you may choose an audio
listening mode immediately followed by a speaker selection. The table below shows how your receiver will route
audio with the various audio modes and speaker selection combinations. This table assumes seven full range
speakers plus a subwoofer. If your speaker configuration is different from this make sure you have performed the
set up procedures described previously (see SETUP SPEAKER SIZE). When the setup is correctly performed
your receiver will route audio to fewer/smaller speakers with the needed corrections to volume and “down mixing”
applied automatically.

Audio Mode description
MONO
Sums the incoming audio information to a single channel and routes it to the desired speaker. Use this mode for
listening to the FM tuner with weak RF signal strengths. It is also useful in the case of a large listening group and
it is difficult to put everyone near the optimum listening position.
STEREO
Sums the incoming audio information into Left, Right, and Mono channels and routes them to the desired speaker
selection. Use this mode for a purist (STEREO 2) listening or for expanding the stereo image to additional
speakers.
SURROUND
Best suited for use with surround encoded movies and music and multi-channel encoded bitstreams. In addition,
this mode may be used to extract multi-channel surround information from 2-channel audio using one of the six
available surround decoder types. Use this mode to process both Movies and Music without THX processing.
For use with 2-channel analog or digital audio, pressing SURROUND allows selecting from one of the six
available matrix surround decoder types, Pro Logic Movie (Cinema), Pro Logic Music, Pro Logic II Movie
(Cinema), Pro Logic II Music, Neo:6 Movie (Cinema) and Neo:6 Music, and routes the extracted multi-channel
information to the desired number of speakers.
For use with multi-channel encoded bitstreams such as Dolby Digital and DTS-ES, pressing SURROUND allows
selecting between a Movie (Cinema) and Music playback option. Movie (Cinema) may be used to emphasize the
surround side speakers while Music emphasizes the surround back speakers. SURROUND 6 allows for either
Dolby Digital EX or DTS-ES matrix surround decoder processing for the extraction of an additional surround back
channel. In addition, DTS-ES discrete 6.1 is automatically selected during playback of appropriately encoded
DTS-ES material.
Surround Decoder Type
With the release and popularity of multi-channel discrete encoding formats such as Dolby Digital and DTS-ES,
has come the need for new and improved matrix surround decoder technologies. Combining our technology
partnerships with Dolby Laboratories, Digital Theater Systems, Lucasfilm Ltd. and Motorola Semiconductor, and
utilizing our Plug n Play processor operation, we offer six surround decoder types that may be used in a very
simple manner to extract multi-channel surround information from 2-channel movie or music source material.
Pro Logic Movie (Cinema)
When listening to movies using the Dolby Pro Logic movie decoder, there is further enhancement to the cinematic
quality by adding processing that emphasizes the surround sounds for use with movie action and special effects.
Pro Logic Music
When listening to music using the Dolby Pro Logic music decoder, there is further enhancement to the sound
quality by adding processing that emphasizes the musical effects.
Pro Logic II Movie (Cinema)
When listening to movies using the Dolby Pro Logic II movie decoder with stereo TV shows or Dolby Surroundencoded programs, there is further enhancement to soundfield directionality, which is close to the quality of
discrete 5.1-channel sound. Conventional narrow band monaural surround channel is played as stereo with a
more realistic feel and movement.
Pro Logic II Music
When listening to music using the Dolby Pro Logic II music decoder, stereo music recordings are able to provide
a wide and deep soundfield. The Dolby Pro Logic II music decoder allows three independent parameters to tailor
the sound to your own preference. The Center Width Control allows the sound of the center channel to be placed
between its own speaker and the left and right front speakers. The Dimension Control allows for the adjustment of
where the soundfield is placed in the front to rear image to allow a desired balance from all speakers. The
Panorama control extends the front stereo image to include the surround speakers, thereby creating a wrap
around imaging effect.
49
Neo:6 Movie (Cinema)
When listening to movies using the DTS Neo:6 movie decoder with stereo TV shows or other surround-encoded
programs, there is further enhancement to soundfield directionality, which is close to the quality of discrete 6.1channel sound. Conventional narrow band monaural surround channel is played as stereo with a more realistic
feel and movement.
Neo:6 Music
When listening to music using the DTS Neo:6 music decoder, stereo music recordings are able to provide a wide
and deep soundfield. DTS Neo:6 music decoder allows you to tailor the Center Image to your own preference.
The Center Image/Width Control allows the sound of the center channel to be placed between its own speaker
and the left and right front speakers.

THX
Similar in operation to the SURROUND audio mode (See SURROUND and Surround Decoder Type), but
incorporates Lucasfilm Home THX Re-Equalization™, Timbre Matching™ and Adaptive Decorrelation™ to correct
for the tonal and spatial errors that occur during the translation from the movie theater environment into the home.
THX Ultra2 ™ Cinema mode and THX MusicMode ™ use Advanced Speaker Array ™ (ASA). In audio modes
THX Movie and THX Music, ASA is used to perform additional processing to optimize the use of surround side
and surround back speakers in a home theater system.
DVD Audio
Use this audio mode with the analog outputs of a DVD Audio player or any other 5.1 audio source device (see Set
DVD audio input under SETUP INPUTS). Like all other modes you may choose to route your DVD audio source
to 1 - 7 speakers and even add matrix surround/back processing (DVDA 6). Note that DVD Audio mode can only
be chosen for the input designated as the DVD Audio input in the setup menu. While no DVD Audio input is
assigned (factory default), the DVD Audio mode is inactive.
50
Special Considerations
For use with multi-channel encoded bitstreams pressing of SURROUND or THX toggles between the Movie
and Music playback options.
For use with 2-channel analog or digital audio, pressing of SURROUND or THX allows sequencing through
the six surround decoder types, Pro Logic Movie, Pro Logic Music, Pro Logic II Movie, Pro Logic II Music, Neo:6
Movie and Neo:6 Music.
After selecting an audio mode, you may enter 0 - 9 to select the desired number of speakers that will be used to
reproduce the processed audio. Three of these selections (0, 8, 9) require extra consideration to fully understand
their capability, as they do not relate specifically to the number of speakers in your system.
Speaker selection 0 ‘HEADPHONE’ - use when the receiver is to be used with Headphones and it is desired to
turn off the system’s power amplifiers. While in ‘HEADPHONE’, the equalizer feature of your unit remains
operational (see EQUALIZATION ‘EQ’). Selecting an audio mode for use with speaker selection 0 ‘HEADPHONE’
effects all inputs simultaneously. This feature allows the ‘Headphone’ selection to stay in effect until the unit is put
to SLEEP, or you select an audio mode for use with other than 0 speakers. Note ‘HEADPHONE’ is not allowed for
use in Favorite Mode setup. Also, Control Out 1 may be turned off (factory default) depending on how your
receiver has been set up (see ADVANCED FEATURES), allowing you to turn off any external amplifiers or
powered subwoofers with compatible CONTROL inputs. WARNING: in order to provide full range audio to
your headphones, it is necessary to override the bass management processing in your receiver. If you are
using external amplifiers or powered speakers with no CONTROL OUT capability then full range audio
(including LFE for Dolby Digital and DTS) will also be sent to your front left and right speakers. If you
have small front speakers we strongly suggest you manually turn off your external amplifiers or powered
speakers before switching to selecting ‘HEADPHONE’ operation. Otherwise you may damage your
speakers.
Speaker selection 8 ‘DIRECT’ - allows selection of the ‘analog’ signals connected to the currently selected input
sources L & R RCA audio inputs overriding the use of optical or coax S/PDIF. No processing is applied to the
audio signals other than level control. Use ‘DIRECT’ when NO audio processing is desired, this may be desirable
if you use an outboard digital-to-analog converter or Super Audio CD player. Note, while in ‘DIRECT’, the
equalizer feature of your unit is not available and disabled (see EQUALIZATION ‘EQ’).
Speaker selection 9 ‘LtRt’ - Normally, your tape outputs contain the analog L/R inputs from the selected source.
If you wish to make a recording from the digital inputs, select mode 9 (LtRt - Left total, Right total). Selecting an
audio mode for use with speaker selection 9 ‘LtRt’ effects all inputs simultaneously. This feature allows ‘LtRt’ to
stay in effect until the unit is put to SLEEP, or you select an audio mode for use with other than 9 speakers.
Speaker selection 9 ‘LtRt’, is not allowed for use in Favorite Mode setup. Your receiver will convert the digital
signal to a Dolby Surround compatible 2 channel signal for recording. Upon playback you will get matrix surround
encoded sound, even if the original signal was Dolby Digital or DTS. Note that the LtRt signal also appears at
your front left and right speakers and is full range. If you use small front speakers it is recommended that you turn
down the volume before engaging LtRt mode. Note, while in ‘LtRt’, the equalizer feature of your unit is not
available and disabled (see EQUALIZATION ‘EQ’).
51
Why do I need all these audio modes?
With the wide variety of audio source material available today, i.e. single channel mono, 2 channel mono, 2
channel stereo, 2 channel surround and multi-channel encoded audio, we believe that the reproduction of this
material is best handled in audio categories. We have decided to define five “audio modes” which are actually
different Plug and Play modes of operating our audio processor. MONO is best used for listening to the FM tuner
with weak RF signal strengths. It is also useful in the case of a large listening group when it is difficult to put
everyone near the optimum listening position. STEREO is best used for a purist (STEREO 2) listening or for
expanding the stereo image to additional speakers. SURROUND and THX are best used for most home theater
applications where the intent is to allow a surround decoder to determine automatically the routing and image of
the audio information. DVD AUDIO is intended for use with an analog 5.1 channel source component.
Why do I need all these surround decoders?
For use with the SURROUND or THX audio modes, surround decoders types allow another dimension in how the
audio image is reproduced in a home theater. In general, many people will be happy simply leaving their receiver
in the SURROUND or THX audio mode at all times. Only Dolby Surround encoded 2-channel material has true
surround speaker information encoded into the audio material. For use with this audio material, a standard Dolby
Pro Logic surround decoder might suffice. However, for use with audio information from a 2 channel stereo
source or even 2 channel surround encoded information in a home theater environment, an option for different
surround decoders allows for an optimized reproduction of the material from a movie or music perspective.
Why do I need all these speaker selections?
In general, many people will be happy simply leaving their processor in the default SURROUND or THX audio
mode for use with seven speakers. However, occasionally it maybe desired to select the MONO or STEREO
“audio mode” for use with 2, 4 side, 4 back, 5 side or 5 back speakers because it may sound more natural with
the current music or movie content.

EQUALIZATION ‘EQ’
Selecting an EQ function via the remote control - allows you to override how the audio is currently being
processed. This is where you may set the Dynamic Range to either Normal (default) or Limited for late night
listening while processing Dolby Digital or DTS bit streams.
Settings made here are intended for occasional adjustments for a particular source material. They affect all inputs
but are temporary. After turning the system off and on, the original parameters from the SETUP menus are
restored. If there are temporary settings you use often, you may wish to store them in a preset for instant recall
See PRESETS.
You may select EQ, Off ‘EQ 0”, Variable ‘EQ 1’, Loudness ‘EQ 2’ or Theater ‘EQ 3’.
The table below shows the various audio modes and how the EQ feature may be used. Under normal usage a
user would select one of these EQs to either correct or enhance their processed audio.
Note, while in ‘DIRECT’ or ‘LtRt’ (speaker selections 8 & 9) the equalizer feature of your unit is not available and
disabled (see EQUALIZATION ‘EQ’).

If your receiver is used in a THX home theater environment, best results during movies may be realized using the
THX audio listening mode (see AUDIO MODES, THX). Selecting THX Audio mode sets your unit for use with
Home THX Cinema mode. Re-Equalization™ is used to restore the correct tonal balance for watching a movie
soundtrack in a small home theater. Timbre Matching™ is used to filter the information going to the surround
speakers so that they more closely match the tonal characteristics of the sound coming from the front speakers.
This ensures seamless panning from the front to surround speakers.
Select off ‘EQ 0’
Use to disable any preset equalization curves or the current bass and treble settings. Note the notch filter settings
made under Setup Speakers - Room Equalization are still in effect.
Select variable ‘EQ 1’
Allows separate bass and treble settings for use with all input sources.
Many systems allow only adjustment of bass and treble levels at fixed frequency points. Your receiver allows you
to adjust level and frequency so you may fine tune your tone controls to proved either very subtle effects at just
the right frequency extremes, or for more a pronounced effect at higher bass and lower treble frequencies.
A default setting for bass and treble may be set under Setup Speakers - Room Equalization.
Selecting variable ‘EQ 1’ allows you to use the options shown below in VARIABLE EQUALIZATION, and
temporarily override the default settings made to bass and treble in setup speakers - room equalization (See
Room Equalization under Setup Speakers).
Adjust LFE Level
If you have no subwoofer and you wish to reduce the low frequency effects (LFE) channel to lessen its
contribution to the bass going to your remaining large speakers. Or, even with a subwoofer, you may just wish to
reduce the overall LFE level, especially in an apartment situation. Note that this affects only the separate LFE (.1)
channel available on Dolby Digital and DTS material it has no effect on the reproduction of normal bass from the
front, center, or surround channels.
53
Select Dynamic Range Limited
For late night listening while processing Dolby Digital or DTS bit streams and a reduced dynamic range is desired.
When the dynamic range is set to limited, compression is used to raise the average loudness of the dialog, and
the program peaks will be restricted much in the style of conventional television audio.

Select loudness ‘EQ 2’
Use to set the equalizer to a preset filter curve designed for use when using low listening levels. The human ear’s
frequency response varies with volume level. At high levels it has relatively flat response, while at low levels its
sensitivity to high and low frequencies are reduced. The loudness equalizer is designed to cancel the ear’s
frequency response anomalies to provide consistent tone at all volume levels. Note that you will hear little
difference using the loudness control at high volumes as it has its greatest effect at lower volume levels.
Select theater ‘EQ 3’
Use to set the equalizer to a preset filter curve best suited for small home theaters. Many soundtracks are mixed
for a large movie theater with very absorptive surfaces and speakers firing through projection screens. If the
soundtrack has not been adjusted for home use, it may sound overly bright or harsh. Theater EQ allows you to
apply preset high frequency compensation specifically set for use with this type of material. If your receiver is
used in a THX home theater environment, best results during movies may be realized using the THX audio
listening mode (see AUDIO MODES, THX).
ZONE ID
Messages transmitted from a B&K Components Ltd remote control consist of two parts. Part one is the Product ID
Code Set, more commonly referred to as the Zone ID number i.e. Zone 1, Zone 2 etc. The Zone ID is a B&K
concept that allows multiple B&K products to be controlled from the same B&K remote. Your receiver has support
for 99 Zone ID code sets ranging from 1 to 99. The second part of the remote control transmitting message
consists of the Data representing the desired function i.e. Volume UP, Volume DN, CD, DVD, etc.
Your receiver has two separate and independently controlled A/V preamplifier sections designated as Zone A and
Zone B. Zone A is the “Home Theater” surround processor section and is referred to as Zone 1 because it has a
factory default Zone ID setting of 1. Zone B is an additional “Stereo Preamplifier” section that is referred to as
Zone 2 because it that has a factory default Zone ID setting of 2. Zone IDs allow independent command and
control of your receiver’s two independent preamplifier sections. For proper operation and integration with
systems using other B&K Components products, you may need to change the zone ID settings of Zone A or Zone
B to other values. Note that you cannot set your receivers Zone A zone ID setting to the same value as the Zone
B zone ID setting or vice versa. If you need to set the Zone A zone ID to the current Zone B setting, first set the
Zone B zone ID to a value other than that desired for use with Zone A.
54
ZONE ‘Z’
Use the Z (zone) function via the remote control - For use in a second audio zone, your receiver comes
equipped with a fully independent 2-channel analog pre-amp. The easiest way to control this second zone is with
a dedicated Zone 2 (the factory default zone ID setting of Zone B is 2) remote available from B&K and other
universal remote suppliers. However, you may also control your unit’s second zone from the Zone 1 remote via its
“Z” button.

Normally, your second zones’ zone ID will be set to 2. However, because it is possible to change the zone ID,
(see Advanced settings) enter the current Zone B zone ID here to get control of the second zone. If the zone ID is
10 or larger hit +10 followed by the second digit to gain control.
After a few seconds of inactivity, control will automatically revert to Zone 1. If you don’t wish to wait, just press Z
then 1. You may also control Zone 2 from a remote control or front panel via the menu system. See Zone 2

PRESETS
Presets allow you to save your favorite settings and recall them instantly. Your receiver can store two banks of 40
presets (0...39) in each of 2 Zones. The saved information includes the selected audio source, selected video
source, volume, the audio mode and number of speakers, the tuner station and band settings, and all of the
temporary settings and overrides described previously. A convenient set of 10 presets come preprogrammed with
your receiver.

GETTING RECEIVER STATUS
When you are not in a menu, pressing ENTER at any time will bring up a two or three line status message on
Zone 1 video outputs. A single line status message is also available on the receiver’s front panel display. This
display will also pop up automatically whenever you change sources or whenever the selected source information
changes. The video type is very important if you are using mixed composite and S-video sources since it will tell
you how you must set your monitor for the best picture. The bitstream and channel information is particularly
important with DVDs since they may contain multiple soundtracks. When you initially start the DVD you may get a
Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtrack. To get the best possible sound, you may have to use the DVD player’s menu
system to get to a Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS-ES multi-channel soundtrack. If you ever need to call B&K regarding a
problem with your receiver be sure to note the status display before calling.

ADVANCED FEATURES
WARNING -
The following describes the advanced features of the receiver. Since changing some of
these functions may cause severe effects such as no sound or no remote control operation, we suggest you leave
this menu disabled (hidden) for normal operation. If you are unsure of what you are changing DO NOT perform
any advanced operations. These features may be activated by simultaneously pressing the SLEEP, DOWN, and
UP buttons on the front panel of the receiver.
ADVANCED
Usually these settings may be left set to the factory defaults. However, these settings allow additional
modifications to the operation of your receiver. Make sure you are in the SETUP SYSTEM MENU and your

Set V1 line output usage - V1 output is normally set up as a tape loop. The V1 and Zone 1 (A) outputs are the
current source (V2, TV, CD, DVD, etc.) except when the current selection is V1. When V1 is selected as the
source, the Zone 1 (A) output is V1 and the V1 output is off. This prevents feedback when the V1 inputs and
outputs are connected to a tape deck or VCR. Feedback can cause high frequency oscillations, which may
damage your speakers. If you don’t connect a tape deck to the V1 input and output you can use the V1 output as
an additional line out. In this mode V1 output is always the selected input including V1. Note: The Tape input and
output is always set up as a tape monitor for Zone 1 (A).

Set surround mode operation - Most users will prefer the factory setting - AUTO. In this mode the receiver
automatically sets the surround mode to full 7.1 channel operation (or as many as permitted by your speaker
setup) whenever a Dolby Digital or DTS bitstream is detected regardless of what surround mode you have
selected. For example, load your CD changer with a normal PCM CD, a DTS CD, and another normal PCM CD
and select audio mode SURROUND 3 (see AUDIO MODES above). While the PCM CD is playing you will get
sound from the front and center speakers only. When the disc changes to the DTS CD you will get sound from all
front, center, and surround speakers. When the third (PCM) CD starts the receiver returns to SURROUND 3. Note
that if a Dolby Digital or DTS source is currently playing and you change the audio mode the receiver will stay in
the selected audio mode until you select another input or turn the receiver off and on. In MANUAL mode the
chosen audio mode remains set regardless of the bitstream detected. In the above example only the front and
center speakers would be used on all three CDs even though the DTS CD was capable of providing full 5-channel
sound to 7.1 speakers. Note that the surround channel information is not lost. It is simply mixed into the front
speakers.

Zone 2 (B) Level Control - You may wish to install an in-wall volume control in your second zone. This can
cause confusion between your receiver’s internal Zone 2 (B) volume controls and your in-wall controls.
WARNING - Setting Zone 2 (B) LEVEL CONTROL to FIXED will cause your receiver to immediately send its
maximum Zone 2 (B) volume to your second zone (if Zone 2 (B) is on). Turn down your in-wall volume
controls before making this change.

Zone 2 (B) Max (Fixed or Variable) Level - Zone 2 (B)’s max level allows you to set a maximum volume level for
Zone 2 (B). This is very useful if you are using speakers that can’t handle the maximum power output from your
external amplifier or if you simply wish to limit the volume that can be achieved using normal front panel or remote
operation. If you have chosen Zone 2 (B) level control (fixed), then this setting becomes the fixed level for Zone 2
(B). If you have chosen Zone 2 (B) level control (variable) then this setting allows the level for Zone 2 (B) to be
adjusted. However, when adjusting this level it cannot exceed the value set in Zone 2 (B) max level.
WARNING - If you set this level too low, the receiver may appear broken (no sound).

Set the Zone ID for Zone B - Each message transmitted from your remote includes a Product ID Code Set (See
Zone ID), which allows independent command and control of the receiver’s Zones A and B. Set the desired zone
ID number for use with Zone B (default 2). You may not set the Zone B zone ID to the same setting as Zone A
(default 1) or vice versa. If you need to set Zone B to the current Zone A setting then you must first set Zone A to
some other Zone ID value.
WARNING - if you change the Zone product ID code set in the receiver without making the corresponding
change to the remote then the remote will no longer appear to work. Refer to the separate remote manual
for details on changing the remote’s product ID code set (“device code”).

Set V2 line output usage - V2 output is normally set up as a tape loop. The V2 and Zone 2 (B) output are the
current source (V1, TV, CD, DVD, etc.) except when the current selection is V2. When V2 is selected as the
source, the Zone 2 (B) output is V2 and the V2 output is the previously selected source. This prevents feedback
when the V2 inputs and outputs are connected to a tape deck or VCR. Feedback can cause high frequency
oscillations, which may damage your speakers. If you don’t connect a tape deck to the V2 input and output you
can use the V2 output as an additional line out. In this mode V2 output is always the selected input including V2.

Control Outputs
Your receiver’s control outputs allow you to control up to 4 external devices such as power amplifiers, projection
screens, etc. Each control output can be programmed on (a source of 12VDC @ 50 mA) or off (0 VDC)
depending on which source is selected. They may also be set to headphone listening, remote repeater or RS-232
(see BKC-DIP documentation). Make sure you are in the ADVANCED SYSTEM SETUP menu and the remote is

Control out 1 is dedicated to Zone 1 (A) it can be programmed to be on or off for each source. For example you
may wish to use the control out to pull down a projection screen for your V1 and DVD sources but roll it up for
Tuner and CD. Control out 1 can also be set to HEADPHONE or RS-232. HEADPHONE mode is intended to
control external amplifiers to permit headphone listening without the need for manually turning off your external
amplifiers. Select the RS-232 option when Control out 1 is to be set using BKC-DIP.
