Introduction
We would like to thank you for purchasing one of our JVC products.
Before operating this unit, read this manual carefully and thoroughly to obtain the best possible performance from your unit,
and retain this manual for future reference.
Features
Hybrid Feedback Digital Amplifier
RX-D411S/RX-D412B features the JVC-exclusive Hybrid
Feedback Digital Amplifier. Premium-grade parts and devices,
and special internal construction assure you will enjoy
superior sound.
Compatible with HDMI*
The HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the
standard interface for the next-generation TV. By connecting
the source components, this receiver, and TV with the HDMI
cables, digital video signals and audio signals (including Dolby
Digital, DTS) are transmitted through the cables. You can
transmit digital video signal and audio signal without AD/DA
conversion with easy connection.
As RX-D411S/RX-D412B supports up to HDMI version 1.1, this
receiver can digitally receive 5.1-channel PCM with fs 96 kHz
and 2-channel PCM with fs 192 kHz. (These PCM signals are
referred to as “multi-channel PCM” in this instructions.) You
can enjoy digital sound without deterioration. In addition, this
receiver is compatible with HDCP** (High-bandwidth Digital
Content Protection), and HDCP contents can be viewed if you
connect an HDCP-compatible TV to this receiver.
* HDMI, the HDMI logo and High-Definition Multimedia
Interface are trademarks or registered trademarks of HDMI
Licensing LLC.
**HDCP is the abbreviation of “High-bandwidth Digital
Content Protection,” and is the high-reliable copy control
technology licensed by Digital Content Protection, LLC.
7.1 channel DAP (Digital Acoustic Processor)
Sound field simulation technology allows precise ambience
recreation of existing theatres and halls. Thanks to the highperformance DSP (Digital Signal Processor) and high-capacity
memory, you can enjoy 7.1-channel surround by playing
2-channel or multi-channel software.
Precise Surround Setup
Precise Surround Setup is a newly-developed JVC solution for
quick, easy and systematic optimization of surround sound.
By using Precise Surround Setup, you can enjoy the best
possible surround performance. Precise Surround Setup
measures the listening environment accurately with the
dedicated earphone-type microphones and adjusts the
speaker settings automatically.
CC (Compression Compensative) Converter
CC Converter eliminates jitter and ripples, achieving a drastic
reduction in digital distortion by processing the digital music
data in 24 bit–quantization and by expanding the sampling
frequency to 128 kHz (for fs 32 kHz signals)/176.4 kHz (for fs
44.1 kHz signals)/192 kHz (for fs 48 kHz signals). By using the
CC Converter, you can obtain a natural sound field from any
source.
DCDi technology
DCDi (Directional Correlational Deinterlacing) technology,
developed by Faroudja, eliminates jagged edges generated
in progressive scanning conversion. With DCDi, you can enjoy
clear and smooth video images on your display. For RXD411S/RX-D412B, this function is applied only when the NTSC
analog video signals are transmitted to the receiver.
K2 technology
K2 technology has been designed to enable natural audio
reproduction, achieving a drastic reduction in digital
distortion and creating original sound ambience with high
precision.
Precautions
Power sources
• When unplugging the receiver from the wall outlet, always
pull the plug, not the AC power cord.
• Do not handle the AC power cord with wet hands.
• If you are not going to operate the receiver for an extended
period of time, unplug the AC power cord from the wall
outlet.
Ventilation
The seven high power amplifiers built in this receiver will
generate heat inside the cabinet.
For safety, observe the following carefully:
• Make sure there is good ventilation around the receiver.
Poor ventilation could overheat and damage the receiver.
• Do not block the ventilation openings or holes. (If the
ventilation openings or holes are blocked by a newspaper or
cloth, etc., the heat may not be able to get out.)
Others
• Should any metallic object or liquid fall into the receiver,
unplug the receiver and consult your dealer before
operating any further.
• Do not use this receiver in a bathroom or places with water.
• Do not place any containers filled with water or liquids (such
as cosmetics or medicines, flower vases, potted plants, cups,
etc.) on the top of this receiver.
• Do not disassemble the receiver since there are no user
serviceable parts inside.
If anything goes wrong, unplug the AC power cord and
consult your JVC dealer.

Dolby Digital is a digital signal compression method,
developed by Dolby Laboratories, and enables multi-channel
encoding and decoding.
• When Dolby Digital signal is detected through the digital
input, the
indicator lights up on the display.
Dolby Digital 5.1CH
Reproducing theater ambience
In a movie theater, many speakers are located on the walls to
reproduce impressive multi-channel sound, reaching you from
all directions.
With these many speakers, sound localization and sound
movement can be expressed.
Surround/DSP modes built in this receiver can create almost
the same Surround sound as you can feel in a real movie
theater.
Dolby Digital 5.1CH (DOLBY DIGITAL) encoding method
records and digitally compresses the left front channel, right
front channel, center channel, left surround channel, right
surround channel, and LFE channel signals (total 6 channels,
but the LFE channel is counted as 0.1 channel; therefore,
called 5.1 channel).
Dolby Digital enables stereo surround sounds, and sets the
cutoff frequency of the surround treble at 20 kHz, compared
to 7 kHz for Dolby Pro Logic. As such, the sound movement
and “being-there” feeling are enhanced much more than
Dolby Pro Logic.
Dolby Digital EX
Dolby Digital EX (DOLBY D EX) is a digital surround encoding
format that adds the third surround channels, called “surround
back.”
Compared to the conventional Dolby Digital 5.1CH, these
newly added surround back channels can reproduce more
detailed movements behind you while viewing the video
software. In addition, surround sound localization will become
more stable.
7 Dolby Surround
Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II is a multi-channel playback decoder to
convert 2-channel software into 5-channel (plus subwoofer).
The matrix-based conversion method used for Dolby Pro Logic
II makes no limitation for the cutoff frequency of the surround
treble and enables stereo surround sound.
• This receiver provides three types of Dolby Pro Logic II
modes—Pro Logic II Movie (PLII MOVIE), Pro Logic II Music
(PLII MUSIC), and Pro Logic II Game (PLII GAME).
When Dolby Pro Logic II is activated, the
indicator
lights up on the display.

PLII MOVIE
Suitable for playing any Dolby Surround
encoded software. You can enjoy a sound field
very close to the one created with discrete 5.1channel sounds.
PLII MUSIC
Suitable for playing any 2-channel stereo
software. You can enjoy wide and deep
sounds.
PLII GAME
Suitable for when playing a video game. You
can enjoy sounds with “being there” feeling.

Dolby Pro Logic IIx
DTS 96/24
Dolby Pro Logic IIx is another multi-channel playback
decoder to convert not only multi-channel software but
2-channel software into 7.1 channel (or 6.1 channel) that
developed from Dolby Pro Logic II. The matrix-based
conversion method used for Dolby Pro Logic IIx makes no
limitation for the cutoff frequency of the surround treble.
• This receiver provides three types of Dolby Pro Logic IIx
modes—Pro Logic IIx Movie (PLIIx MOVIE), Pro Logic IIx
Music (PLIIx MUSIC), and Pro Logic IIx Game (PLIIx GAME).
When Dolby Pro Logic IIx is activated, “PLIIx MOVIE,” “PLIIx
MUSIC,” or “PLIIx GAME” appear and the
indicator
lights up on the display.
In recent years, there has been increasing interest in higher
sampling rates both for recording and for reproducing at
home. Higher sampling rates allow wider frequency range and
greater bit depths provide extended dynamic range.
DTS 96/24 is a multi-channel digital signal format (fs 96
kHz/24 bits) introduced by Digital Theater Systems, Inc. to
deliver “better-than-CD sound quality” into the home.
• When DTS 96/24 signal is detected, the
96/24 indicator
lights up. You can enjoy its 5.1-channel sound with fullquality.
PLIIx MOVIE Suitable for playing any Dolby Surround
encoded software. You can enjoy a sound field
with a natural wraparound effect.
PLIIx MUSIC Suitable for playing any 2-channel stereo
software. You can enjoy wide and deep 7.1channel sounds.
PLIIx GAME Suitable for when playing a video game. You
can enjoy 7.1-channel sounds with “being
there” feeling. This mode is available only for
an analog 2-channel signal.
7 DTS*
DTS is another digital signal compression method, developed
by Digital Theater Systems, Inc., and enables multi-channel
encoding and decoding (1ch up to 6.1ch).
• When DTS signal is detected through the digital input, the
indicator lights up on the display.
DTS Digital Surround
DTS Digital Surround (DTS) is a discrete 5.1-channel digital
audio format available on CD, LD, and DVD software.
Compared to Dolby Digital, the DTS Digital Surround format
has a lower audio compression rate which enables it to add
breadth and depth to the sounds reproduced. As such, DTS
Digital Surround features natural, solid, and clear sound.
DTS Extended Surround (DTS-ES)
DTS-ES is another multi-channel digital encoding format.
It greatly improves the 360-degree surround impression and
space expression by adding the third surround channel—
surround back channel.
DTS-ES includes two signal formats with different surround
signal recording methods—DTS-ES Discrete 6.1ch (ES
DISCRETE) and DTS-ES Matrix 6.1ch (ES MATRIX).
DTS-ES Discrete 6.1ch has been designed to encode (and
decode) a 6.1-channel signal discretely to avoid interference
with each channel.
DTS-ES Matrix 6.1ch has been designed to add an extra
surround channel to DTS Digital Surround 5.1-channel. By
using a matrix encoding/decoding method, an additional
“surround back” channel signal is encoded (and decoded) in
both the left and right surround channel signals.
40
DTS Neo:6
DTS Neo:6 is another conversion method to create 6-channel
(plus subwoofer) from analog/digital 2-channel software by
using the high precision digital matrix decoder used for DTSES Matrix 6.1ch.
• This receiver provides the following DTS Neo:6 modes—
Neo:6 Cinema (NEO:6 CINEMA) and Neo:6 Music (NEO:6
MUSIC).
When one of them is activated, the NEO:6 indicator lights up
on the display.
NEO:6 CINEMA Suitable for playing movies. You can get the
same atmosphere with 2-channel software
as with 6.1-channel software. It is also
effective for playing software encoded with
conventional surround formats.
NEO:6 MUSIC Suitable for playing music software. The
front channel signals bypass the decoder
(resulting in no loss of sound quality) and
the surround signals transmitted through
the other speakers expand the sound field
naturally.
* “DTS”, “DTS-ES”, “Neo:6” and “DTS 96/24” are trademarks
of Digital Theater Systems, Inc.
When using Surround mode, the sounds come out of the
activated speakers which the Surround mode requires.
• If either “SURROUND SPK” or “CENTER SPK” is set
to “NO” in the speaker setting (see page 30), the
corresponding channel signals are allocated to and emitted
through the front speakers.
• If both “SURROUND SPK” and “CENTER SPK” are set to
“NO” in the speaker setting (see page 30), JVC’s original
3D-PHONIC processing (which has been developed to create
the surround effect through the front speakers only) is used.
The 3D-PHONIC indicator lights up on the display.
7 Digital Acoustic Processor (DAP) modes
About other digital signals
Linear PCM—Uncompressed digital audio data used for
DVDs, CDs, and Video CDs
DVDs support 2 channels with sampling rates of 48/96 kHz,
at quantization of 16/20/24 bits. On the other hand, CDs
and Video CDs are limited to 2 channels with 44.1 kHz at 16
bits.
• When Linear PCM signal is detected, the LINEAR PCM
indicator lights up.
Multi-channel PCM—Uncompressed multi-channel digital
audio data used for DVD-Audios
DVD-Audios support up to 5.1 channels with sampling rates
of 44.1/48/88.2/96 kHz and 2 channels with sampling rates
of 44.1/48/88.2/96/176/192 kHz, at quantization of 16/20/24
bits.
• When the Multi-channel PCM signal is detected, the
LINEAR PCM indicator lights up and “MULTI CH PCM”
appears on the display for a while.
Dual Mono
Dual Mono can be easily understood when you think of the
bilingual broadcast for TV programs (however, the Dual
Mono format is not identical with those analog formats).
This format is now adopted in Dolby Digital, DTS, and so on.
It allows two independent channels (called main channel
and sub-channel) to be recorded separately.
• You can select either channel you want to listen to (see
page 32).
You can use the following DAP modes in order to reproduce a
more acoustic sound field in your listening room.
HALL1
Reproduces the spatial feeling of a large
shoebox-shaped hall designed primarily for
classical concerts. (Its seating capacity is about
2000.)
HALL2
Reproduces the spatial feeling of a large
vineyard-shaped hall designed primarily for
classical concerts. (Its seating capacity is about
2000.)
LIVE CLUB
Reproduces the spatial feeling of a live music
club with a low ceiling.
DANCE CLUB Reproduces the spatial feeling of a rocking
dance club.
PAVILION
Reproduces the spatial feeling of an exhibition
hall with a high ceiling.
THEATER1
Reproduces the spatial feeling of a large
theater where the seating capacity is about
600.
THEATER2

Introducing the DSP modes
The sound heard in a concert hall, club, etc. consists of direct
sound and indirect sound—early reflections and reflections
from behind. Direct sounds reach the listener directly without
any reflection. On the other hand, indirect sounds are delayed
by the distances of the ceiling and walls. These direct sounds
and indirect sounds are the most important elements of the
acoustic surround effects.
The DSP modes can create these important elements, and
give you a real “being there” feeling.
Reflections from behind
Early reflections
Direct sounds
The DSP modes include the following modes:
• Digital Acoustic Processor (DAP) modes—HALL1, HALL2,
LIVE CLUB, DANCE CLUB, PAVILION, THEATER1, THEATER2
• MONO FILM—Used for all types of 2-channel signals
(including Dual Mono signal)
• All Channel Stereo mode (ALL CH STEREO)
When using the DAP mode, the sounds come out of all the
connected and activated speakers.
• If “SURROUND SPK” is set to “NO” in the speaker setting
(see page 30), JVC’s original 3D-PHONIC processing (which
has been developed to create the surround effect through
the front speakers only) is used.
The 3D-PHONIC indicator lights up on the display.
7 MONO FILM
In order to reproduce a more acoustic sound field in your
listening room while viewing monaural sound video software
(analog and 2-channel digital signals including Dual Mono
signal), you can use this mode.
The surround effect will be added, and the sound localization
of actor’s words will be improved.
This mode cannot be used for multi-channel digital
signals.
When “MONO FILM” is used, sounds come out of all the
connected (and activated) speakers.
• If “SURROUND SPK” is set to “NO” in the speaker setting
(see page 30), JVC’s original 3D-PHONIC processing (which
has been developed to create the surround effect through
the front speakers only) is used.
The 3D-PHONIC indicator lights up on the display.
• If incoming signals change from 2-channel digital signal to
another digital signal type, “MONO FILM” is canceled and an
appropriate Surround mode is activated.
When one of the DSP modes is activated, the DSP indicator
lights up on the display.
