2 CAUTIONS ON INSTALLATION
Noise or disturbance of the picture may be generated if this unit or
any other electronic equipment using microprocessors is used near a
tuner or TV.
If this happens, take the following steps:
• Install this unit as far as possible from the tuner or TV.
• Set the antenna wires from the tuner or TV away from this unit’s
power cord and input/output connection cords.
• Noise or disturbance tends to occur particularly when using indoor
antennas or 300 Ω/ohms feeder wires. We recommend using
outdoor antennas and 75 Ω/ohms coaxial cables.
For heat dispersal, leave at least 0.3 ft (10 cm) of space between
the top, back and sides of this unit and the wall or other

3 CAUTIONS ON HANDLING
• Switching the input function when input jacks are not
connected
A clicking noise may be produced if the input function is switched
when nothing is connected to the input jacks. If this happens,
either turn down the MASTER VOLUME control or connect
components to the input jacks.
• Whenever the unit is in the STANDBY state, the apparatus is
still connected on AC line voltage.
Please be sure to turn the power off (£ off) when you leave
home for, say, a vacation.
• Muting of PRE OUT jack, HEADPHONE jack and SPEAKER
terminals
The PRE OUT jack, HEADPHONE jack and SPEAKER terminals
include a muting circuit. Because of this, the output signals are
greatly reduced for several seconds after the power operation
switch is turned on or input function, surround mode or any other
set-up is changed.
If the volume is turned up during this time, the output will be very
high after the muting circuit stops functioning. Always wait until
the muting circuit turns off before adjusting the volume.

• When marking connections, also refer to the operating instructions of the other components.
• A note on the S input jacks
The input selectors for the S inputs and pin jack inputs work in conjunction with each other.
• Precaution when using S-jacks
This unit’s S-jacks (input and output) and video pin jacks (input and output) have independent circuit structures, so that video signals input from
the S-jacks are only output from the S-jack outputs and video signals input from the pin jacks are only output from the pin jack outputs.
When connecting this unit with equipment that is equipped with S-jacks, keep the above point in mind and make connections according to the

operating instructions included with the TV or other component.
MONITOR OUT jacks
The AVR-1705/685 is equpped with a function for up-converting video signals.
Because of this, the AVR-1705/685’s MONITOR OUT jack can be connected to
the monitor (TV) with a set of cables offering a higher quality connection,
regardless of how the player and the AVR-1705/685’s video input jacks are
connected.
Generally speaking, connections using the component video jacks offer te
highest quality playback, followed by connections using the S-Video jacks, then
connections using regular video jacks (yellow).
NOTE:
Down-converting from the component video signal to the S-Video and
composite video signal is not possible, so when not using the component video
monitor output terminal connect the player using the S-Video or composite
video input terminal.
The Video Conversion Function
With the AVR-1705/685, the Video signal and the S-video
signal which were inputted are converted mutually. And also
the Video signal and the S-Video signal which were inputted
are converted into a higher quality.
This unit’s input jacks
The flow of the
this unit’s internal
signals.
Cautions on the video conversion function:
When the component video terminals are used to connect the AVR-1705/685
with a TV (or monitor, projector, etc.) and the video (yellow) or S-Video terminals
are used to connect the AVR-1705/685 with a VTR, depending on the
combination of the TV and VTR the picture may flicker in the horizontal direction,
be distorted, be out of sync not display at all when playing video tapes.
If this happens, connect a commercially available video stabilizer, etc., with a
TBC (time base corrector) function between the AVR-1705/685 and the VTR, or
if your VTR has a TBC function, turn it on.

Note to CATV system installer:
This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer’s
attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC which provides guidelines
for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable
ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the
building, as close to the point of cable entry as practical.
NOTES:
• Do not connect two FM antennas simultaneously.
• Even if an external AM antenna is used, do not disconnect the
AM loop antenna.
• Make sure AM loop antenna lead terminals do not touch metal
parts of the panel.
ENGLISH
Speaker system connections
• Connect the speaker terminals with the speakers making sure that
like polarities are matched (< with <, > with >). Mismatching of
polarities will result in weak central sound, unclear orientation of
the various instruments, and the sense of direction of the stereo
being impaired.
• When making connections, take care that none of the individual
conductors of the speaker cord come in contact with adjacent
terminals, with other speaker cord conductors, or with the rear
panel.
NOTE:
NEVER touch the speaker terminals when the power is on.
Doing so could result in electric shocks.
Speaker Impedance
• When speaker systems A and B are use separately, speakers with
an impedance of 6 to 16 Ω/ohms can be connected for use as front
speakers.
• Be careful when using two pairs of front speakers (A + B) at the
same time, since use of speakers with an impedance of 12 to 16
Ω/ohms.
• Speakers with an impedance of 6 to 16 Ω/ohms can be connected
for use as center and surround and surround back speakers.
• The protector circuit may be activated if the set is played for long
periods of time at high volumes when speakers with an impedance
lower than the specified impedance are connected.

ENGLISH
Protector circuit
• This unit is equipped with a high-speed protection circuit. The purpose of this circuit is to protect the speakers under
circumstances such as when the output of the power amplifier is inadvertently short-circuited and a large current flows,
when the temperature surrounding the unit becomes unusually high, or when the unit is used at high output over a long
period which results in an extreme temperature rise.
When the protection circuit is activated, the speaker output is cut off and the power supply indicator LED flashes. Should
this occur, please follow these steps: be sure to switch off the power of this unit, check whether there are any faults with
the wiring of the speaker cables or input cables, and wait for the unit to cool down if it is very hot. Improve the ventilation
condition around the unit and switch the power back on.
If the protection circuit is activated again even though there are no problems with the wiring or the ventilation around the
unit, switch off the power and contact a DENON service center.
Note on speaker impedance
• The protector circuit may be activated if the set is played for long periods of time at high volumes when speakers with
an impedance lower than the specified impedance (for example speakers with an impedance of lower than 4 Ω/ohms)
are connected. If the protector circuit is activated, the speaker output is cut off. Turn off the set’s power, wait for the set
to cool down, improve the ventilation around the set, then turn the power back on.

NOTES:
— Assignment of low frequency signal range —
• The signals produced from the subwoofer channel are LFE signals (during playback of Dolby Digital or DTS signals) and the low frequency
signal range of channels set to “SMALL” in the setup. The low frequency signal range of channels set to “LARGE” are produced from
those channels.
— Crossover Frequency —
• When “Subwoofer” is set to “Yes” at the “Speaker Configuration Setting”, set the frequency (Hz) below which the bass sound of the
various speakers is to be output from the subwoofer (the crossover frequency).
• For speakers set to “Small”, sound with a frequency below the crossover frequency is cut, and the cut bass sound is output from the
subwoofer instead.
NOTE: For ordinary speaker systems, we recommend setting the crossover frequency to 80 Hz. When using small speakers, however,
setting the crossover frequency to a high frequency may improve frequency response for frequencies near the crossover
frequency.
— Subwoofer mode —
• The subwoofer mode setting is only valid when “LARGE” is set for the front speakers and “YES” is set for the subwoofer in the
“Speaker Configuration” settings (see pages 19, 20).
If “SMALL” is set for the front speakers or “NO” is set for the subwoofer, the subwoofer mode setting does not affect playback of low
frequency signal range.
• When the “+MAIN” playback mode is selected, the low frequency signal range of channels set to “LARGE” are produced
simultaneously from those channels and the subwoofer channel.
In this playback mode, the low frequency range expand more uniformly through the room, but depending on the size and shape of the
room, interference may result in a decrease of the actual volume of the low frequency range.
• When the “NORM” playback mode is selected, the low frequency signal range of channels set to “LARGE” are only produced from
those channels. In this playback mode there tends to be little interference of the low frequency range in the room.
• Try playing the music or movie source and select the playback mode providing the stronger low frequency range sound.

When there are multiple input signals, the input signals are detected and the input signal to be output from the video monitor output
terminal is selected automatically in the following order: component video, S-Video, composite video.
Component: The signal connected to the component video terminal is always played.
Video conversion is not conducted, so no image is output from the monitor output terminal when there is no input signal to the
component terminal.
S-Video:
The signal connected to the S-Video terminal is always played.
The S-Video input signal is converted and output from the composite and component monitor output terminal.
Video:
The signal connected to the composite video terminal is always played.
The composite video input signal is up-converted and output from the S-Video and component monitor output terminals.
NOTE:
Down-converting from the component video signal to the S-Video and composite video signal is not possible, so when not using the component
video monitor output terminal connect the player using the S-Video or composite video input terminal.
Cautions on the video conversion function:
When the component video terminals are used to connect the AVR-1705/685 with a TV (or monitor, projector, etc.) and the video (yellow) or S
video terminals are used to connect the AVR-1705/685 with a VTR, depending on the combination of the TV and VTR the picture may flicker in
the horizontal direction, be distorted, be out of sync or not display at all when playing video tapes.
If this happens, connect a commercially available video stabilizer, etc., with a TBC (time base corrector) function between the AVR-1705/685 and
the VTR, or if your VTR has a TBC function, turn it on.

Pro Logic IIx and Pro Logic II Mode:
• The Cinema mode is for use with stereo television shows and
all programs encoded in Dolby Surround.
• The Music mode is recommended as the standard mode for
auto sound music systems (no video), and is optional for A/V
systems.
• The Pro Logic mode offers the same robust surround
processing as original Pro Logic in case the source contents is
not of optimum quality.
• The Game mode for playing games.The game mode can only be
used with 2-channel audio sources.
Select one of the modes (“Cinema”, “Music”, “Pro Logic”or
“Game”).
Panorama Control:
This mode extends the front stereo image to include the
surround speakers for an exciting “wraparound” effect with
side wall imaging.
Select “OFF” or “ON”.
Dimension Control:
This control gradually adjust the soundfield either towards the
front or towards the rear.
The control can be set in 7 steps from 0 to 6.
Center Width Control:
This control adjust the center image so it may be heard only
from the center speaker; only from the left/right speakers as a
phantom image; or from all three front speakers to varying
degrees.
The control can be set in 8 steps from 0 to 7.
DTS NEO:6 Mode:
• Cinema
This mode is optimum for playing movies. Decoding is
performed with emphasis on separation performance to
achieve the same atmosphere with 2-channel sources as with
6.1-channel sources.
This mode is effective for playing sources recorded in
conventional surround formats as well, because the in-phase
component is assigned mainly to the center channel (C) and the
reversed phase component to the surround (SL, SR and SB
channels).
• Music
This mode is suited mainly for playing music. The front channel
(FL and FR) signals bypass the decoder and are played directly
so there is no loss of sound quality, and the effect of the
surround signals output from the center (C) and surround (SL,
SR and SB) channels add a natural sense of expansion to the
sound field.
CENTER IMAGE (0.0 to 1.0: default 0.3):
The center image parameter for adjusting the expansion of the
center channel in the DTS NEO:6 MUSIC mode has been added.

2 Dialogue Normalization
The dialogue normalization function is activated automatically when playing Dolby Digital program sources.
Dialogue normalization is a basic function of Dolby Digital which automatically normalizes the dialog level (standard level) of the signals which are
recorded at different levels for different program sources, such as DVD, DTV and other future formats that will use Dolby Digital.
These contents can be verified with the STATUS button.
Display
OFFSET
- 4dB
The number indicates the normalization level when the currently playing program is normalized to
the standard level.
Surround parameters w
CINEMA EQ. (Cinema Equalizer):
The Cinema EQ function gently decreases the level of the extreme high frequencies, compensating for overly-bright sounding motion
picture soundtracks. Select this function if the sound from the front speakers is too bright.
This function only works in the Dolby Pro Logic IIx, Dolby Digital, DTS Surround and DTS NEO:6 modes. (The same contents are set for all
operating modes.)
D.COMP. (Dynamic Range Compression):
Motion picture soundtracks have tremendous dynamic range (the contrast between very soft and very loud sounds). For listening late at
night, or whenever the maximum sound level is lower than usual, the Dynamic Range Compression allows you to hear all of the sounds in
the soundtrack (but with reduced dynamic range). (This only works when playing program sources recorded in Dolby Digital or DTS.) Select
one of the four parameters (“OFF”, “LOW”, “MID” (middle) or “HI” (high)). Set to OFF for normal listening.
LFE (Low Frequency Effect):
This sets the level of the LFE (Low Frequency Effect) sounds included in the source when playing program sources recorded in Dolby Digital
or DTS.
If the sound produced from the subwoofer sounds distorted due to the LFE signals when playing Dolby Digital or DTS sources when the
peak limiter is turned off with the subwoofer peak limit level setting (system setup menu), adjust the level as necessary.
Program source and adjustment range:
1. Dolby Digital:
–10 dB to 0 dB
2. DTS Surround: –10 dB to 0 dB
When DTS encoded movie software is played, it is recommended that the LFE LEVEL be set to 0 dB for correct DTS playback.
When DTS encoded music software is played, it is recommended that the LFE LEVEL be set to –10 dB for correct DTS playback.
TONE:
This adjusts the tone control. This can be set individually for the separate shroud mode other than Direct mode.
SB CH OUT (Surround Back):
(1) (Multi channel source)
“OFF” ..................Playback is conducted without using the surround back speaker.
“NON MTRX”......The same signals those of the surround channels are output from the surround back channels.
“MTRX ON” ........Surround back channel is reproduced using digital matrix processing.
“ES MTRX” .........When playing DTS signals, the surround back signals undergo digital matrix processing for playback.
“ES DSCRT”........When a signal identifying the source as a discrete 6.1-channel source is included in the DTS signals, the surround back
signals included in the source are played.
“PL IIx Music” ....Processing is performed with the Music mode of the PL IIx decoder and the Surround Back channel is reproduced.
(2) (2ch source)
“OFF” ..................Playback is conducted without using the surround back speaker.
“ON” ...................Playback is conducted using the surround back speaker.
NOTE: This operation can be performed directly using the SURROUND BACK button on the main unit‘s panel.

14 DSP SURROUND SIMULATION
• This unit is equipped with a high performance DSP (Digital Signal Processor) which uses digital signal processing to synthetically recreate the
sound field. One of 7 preset surround modes can be selected according to the program source and the parameters can be adjusted according
to the conditions in the listening room to achieve a more realistic, powerful sound.
Surround modes and their features
1
5CH/6CH
STEREO
In this mode, the signals of the front left channel are output from the left surround channel, the signals of the front
right channel are output from the right surround channel, and the same (in-phase) component of the left and right
channels is output from the center channel. This mode provides all speaker surround sound, but without directional
steering effects, and works with any stereo program source.
2
MONO MOVIE
(NOTE 1)
Select this when watching monaural movies for a greater sense of expansion.
3
ROCK ARENA
Use this mode to achieve the feeling of a live concert in an arena with reflected sounds coming from all directions.
4
JAZZ CLUB
This mode creates the sound field of a live house with a low ceiling and hard walls. This mode gives jazz a very
vivid realism.
5
VIDEO GAME
Use this to enjoy video game sources.
6
MATRIX
Select this to emphasize the sense of expansion for music sources recorded in stereo. Signals consisting of the
difference component of the input signals (the component that provides the sense of expansion) processed for
delay are output from the surround channel.
7
VIRTUAL
Select this mode to enjoy a virtual sound field, produced from the front 2-channel speakers.
Depending on the program source being played, the effect may not be very noticeable.
In this case, try other surround modes, without worrying about their names, to create a sound field suited to your tastes.
NOTE 1: When playing sources recorded in monaural, the sound will be one-sided if signals are only input to one channel (left or right), so input
signals to both channels. If you have a source component with only one audio output (monophonic camcorder, etc.) obtain a “Y” adaptor
cable to split the mono output to two outputs, and connect to the L and R inputs.
Personal Memory Plus
This set is equipped with a personal memorize function that automatically memorizes the surround modes and input modes selected for
the input different sources. When the input source is switched, the modes set for that source last time it was used are automatically
recalled.
The surround parameters, tone control settings and playback level balance for the different output channels are memorized for each
surround mode.

18 ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Optimum surround sound for different sources
There are currently various types of multi-channel signals (signals or formats with more than two channels).
2 Types of multi-channel signals
Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic, DTS, high definition 3-1 signals (Japan MUSE Hi-Vision audio), DVD-Audio, SACD (Super Audio CD), MPEG multichannel audio, etc.
“Source” here does not refer to the type of signal (format) but the recorded content. Sources can be divided into two major categories.
2 Types of sources
• Movie audio
Signals created to be played in movie theaters. In general sound is recorded to be played in movie theaters equipped
with multiple surround speakers, regardless of the format (Dolby Digital, DTS, etc.).

In this case it is important to achieve the same sense of
expansion as in a movie theater with the surround channels.
To do so, in some cases the number of surround speakers is
increased (to four or eight) or speakers with bipolar or dipolar

Surround back speakers
A 6.1-channel system is a conventional 5.1-channel system to which the “surround back” (SB) channel has been added. This makes it easy to
achieve sound positioned directly behind the listener, something that was previously difficult with sources designed for conventional multi
surround speakers. In addition, the acoustic image extending between the sides and the rear is narrowed, thus greatly improving the expression
of the surround signals for sounds moving from the sides to the back and from the front to the point directly behind the listening position.

With this set, speaker(s) for 1 or 2 channels are required to achieve a 6.1-channel system (DTS-ES, etc.). Adding these speakers, however,
increases the surround effect not only with sources recorded in 6.1 channels but also with conventional 2- to 5.1-channel sources. All the DENON
original surround modes (see page 48) are compatible with 6.1-channel playback, so you can enjoy 6.1-channel sound with any signal source.
2 Placement of the surround left and right channels when using surround back speakers
Using surround back speakers greatly improves the positioning of the sound at the rear. Because of this, the surround left and right channels
play an important role in achieving a smooth transition of the acoustic image from the front to the back. As shown on the diagram above, in a
movie theater the surround signals are also produced from diagonally in front of the listeners, creating an acoustic image as if the sound were
floating in space.
To achieve these effects, we recommend placing the speakers for the surround left and right channels slightly more towards the front than
with conventional surround systems. Doing so sometimes increases the surround effect when playing conventional 5.1-channel sources in the
6.1 surround or DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 mode. Check the surround effects of the various modes before selecting the surround mode.

• When using one surround back speaker, place it at the rear center
facing the front at a slightly higher position (0 to 20 cm) than the surround speakers.
• We recommend installing the surround back speaker(s) at a slightly downward facing angle. This effectively prevents
the surround back channel signals from reflecting off the monitor or screen at the front center, resulting in interference
and making the sense of movement from the front to the back less sharp.

(2) Setting for primarily watching movies using diffusion type speakers for the surround speakers
For the greatest sense of surround sound envelopment, diffuse radiation speakers such as bipolar types, or dipolar types, provide a wider
dispersion than is possible to obtain from a direct radiating speaker (monopolar). Place these speakers at either side of the prime listening
position, mounted above ear level.

Dolby Surround
(1) Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is the multi-channel digital signal format developed by Dolby Laboratories.
Dolby Digital consists of up to “5.1” channels - front left, front right, center, surround left, surround right, and an additional channel exclusively
reserved for additional deep bass sound effects (the Low Frequency Effects – LFE – channel, also called the “.1” channel, containing bass
frequencies of up to 120 Hz).
Unlike the analog Dolby Pro Logic format, Dolby Digital’s main channels can all contain full range sound information, from the lowest bass, up
to the highest frequencies – 22 kHz. The signals within each channel are distinct from the others, allowing pinpoint sound imaging, and Dolby
Digital offers tremendous dynamic range from the most powerful sound effects to the quietest, softest sounds, free from noise and distortion.

PCM”. When playing in Dolby Digital surround on the AVR-1705/685, switch the DVD player’s output mode to “bit stream”. In some cases
players are equipped with both “bit stream + PCM” and “PCM only” digital outputs. In this case connect the “bit stream + PCM” jacks
to the AVR-1705/685.
(2) Dolby Pro Logic IIx
• Dolby Pro Logic IIx furthers the matrix decoding technology of Dolby Pro Logic II to decode audio signals recorded on two channels into
up to 6.1 playback channels, including the surround back channel. Dolby Pro Logic IIx also allows 5.1-channel sources to be played in up to
6.1 channels.
The mode can be selected according to the source. The Music mode is best suited for playing music, the Cinema mode for playing movies,
and the Game mode for playing games. The Game mode can only be used with 2-channel audio sources.

ENGLISH
(3) Dolby Pro Logic II
• Dolby Pro-Logic II is a new multi-channel playback format developed by Dolby Laboratories using feedback logic steering technology and
offering improvements over conventional Dolby Pro Logic circuits.
• Dolby Pro Logic II can be used to decode not only sources recorded in Dolby Surround ( ) but also regular stereo sources into five channels
(front left, front right, center, surround left and surround right) to achieve surround sound.
• Whereas with conventional Dolby Pro Logic the surround channel playback frequency band was limited, Dolby Pro Logic II offers a wider
band range (20 Hz to 20 kHz or greater). In addition, the surround channels were monaural (the surround left and right channels were the
same) with previous Dolby Pro Logic, but Dolby Pro Logic II they are played as stereo signals.
• Various parameters can be set according to the type of source and the contents, so it is possible to achieve optimum decoding (see page
52).
Sources recorded in Dolby Surround
These are sources in which three or more channels of surround have been recorded as two channels of signals using Dolby Surround
encoding technology.
Dolby Surround is used for the sound tracks of movies recorded on DVDs, LDs and video cassettes to be played on stereo VCRs, as well
as for the stereo broadcast signals of FM radio, TV, satellite broadcasts and cable TV.
Decoding these signals with Dolby Pro Logic makes it possible to achieve multi-channel surround playback. The signals can also be played
on ordinary stereo equipment, in which case they provide normal stereo sound.
There are two types of DVD Dolby surround recording signals.
q 2-channel PCM stereo signals
w 2-channel Dolby Digital signals
When either of these signals is input to the AVR-1705/685, the surround mode is automatically set to Dolby Pro Logic II when the
“DOLBY/DTS SURROUND” mode is selected.

DTS Digital Surround
Digital Theater Surround (also called simply DTS) is a multi-channel digital signal format developed by Digital Theater Systems.
DTS offers the same “5.1” playback channels as Dolby Digital (front left, front right and center, surround left and surround right) as well as the
stereo 2-channel mode. The signals for the different channels are fully independent, eliminating the risk of deterioration of sound quality due to
interference between signals, crosstalk, etc.
DTS features a relatively higher bit rate as compared to Dolby Digital (1234 kbps for CDs and LDs, 1536 kbps for DVDs) so it operates with a
relatively low compression rate. Because of this the amount of data is great, and when DTS playback is used in movie theaters, a separate CDROM synchronized with the film is played.
With LDs and DVDs, there is of course no need for an extra disc; the pictures and sound can be recorded simultaneously on the same disc, so
the discs can be handled in the same way as discs with other formats.
There are also music CDs recorded in DTS. These CDs include 5.1-channel surround signals (compared to two channels on current CDs). They do
not include picture data, but they offer surround playback on CD players that are equipped with digital outputs (PCM type digital output required).
DTS surround track playback offers the same intricate, grand sound as in a movie theater, right in your own listening room.

1 DTS signals are recorded in the same way on CDs and LDs as PCM signals. Because of this, the un-decoded DTS signals are output as
random “hissy” noise from the CD or LD player’s analog outputs. If this noise is played with the amplifier set at a very high volume, it may
possibly cause damage to the speakers. To avoid this, be sure to switch the input mode to “AUTO” or “DTS” before playing CDs or LDs
recorded in DTS. Also, never switch the input mode to “ANALOG” or “PCM” during playback. The same holds true when playing CDs or
LDs on a DVD player or LD/DVD compatible player. For DVDs, the DTS signals are recorded in a special way so this problem does not occur.
2 The signals provided at the digital outputs of a CD or LD player may undergo some sort of internal signal processing (output level
adjustment, sampling frequency conversion, etc.). In this case the DTS-encoded signals may be processed erroneously, in which case they
cannot be decoded by the AVR-1705/685, or may only produce noise. Before playing DTS signals for the first time, turn down the master
volume to a low level, start playing the DTS disc, then check whether the DTS indicator on the AVR-1705/685 (see page 36) lights before
turning up the master volume.
3 A DVD player with DTS-compatible digital output is required to play DTS DVDs. A DTS Digital Output logo is featured on the front panel
of compatible DVD players. Recent DENON DVD player models feature DTS-compatible digital output – consult the player’s owner’s manual
for information on configuring the digital output for DTS playback of DTS-encoded DVDs.

DTS-ES Extended Surround™
DTS-ES Extended Surround is a new multi-channel digital signal format developed by Digital Theater Systems Inc. While offering high compatibility
with the conventional DTS Digital Surround format, DTS-ES Extended Surround greatly improves the 360-degree surround impression and space
expression thanks to further expanded surround signals. This format has been used professionally in movie theaters since 1999.
In addition to the 5.1 surround channels (FL, FR, C, SL, SR and LFE), DTS-ES Extended Surround also offers the SB (Surround Back, sometimes
also referred to as “surround center”) channel for surround playback with a total of 6.1 channels. DTS-ES Extended Surround includes two signal
formats with different surround signal recording methods, as described below.
2
DTS-ES™ Discrete 6.1
DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 is the newest recording format. With it, all 6.1 channels (including the SB channel) are recorded independently using a
digital discrete system. The main feature of this format is that because the SL, SR and SB channels are fully independent, the sound can be
designed with total freedom and it is possible to achieve a sense that the acoustic images are moving about freely among the background
sounds surrounding the listener from 360 degrees.
Though maximum performance is achieved when sound tracks recorded with this system are played using a DTS-ES decoder, when played
with a conventional DTS decoder the SB channel signals are automatically down-mixed to the SL and SR channels, so none of the signal
components are lost.
2
DTS-ES™ Matrix 6.1
With this format, the additional SB channel signals undergo matrix encoding and are input to the SL and SR channels beforehand. Upon
playback they are decoded to the SL, SR and SB channels. The performance of the encoder used at the time of recording can be fully matched
using a high precision digital matrix decoder developed by DTS, thereby achieving surround sound more faithful to the producer’s sound design
aims than with conventional 5.1- or 6.1-channel systems.
In addition, the bit stream format is 100% compatible with conventional DTS signals, so the effect of the Matrix 6.1 format can be achieved
even with 5.1-channel signal sources. Of course it is also possible to play DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 encoded sources with a DTS 5.1-channel decoder.
When DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 or Matrix 6.1 encoded sources are decoded with a DTS-ES decoder, the format is automatically detected upon
decoding and the optimum playing mode is selected. However, some Matrix 6.1 sources may be detected as having a 5.1-channel format,
so the DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 mode must be set manually to play these sources.
(For instructions on selecting the surround mode, see page 45.)
The DTS-ES decoder includes another function, the DTS Neo:6 surround mode for 6.1-channel playback of digital PCM and analog signal
sources.
2
62
DTS Neo:6™ surround
This mode applies conventional 2-channel signals to the high precision digital matrix decoder used for DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 to achieve 6.1channel surround playback. High precision input signal detection and matrix processing enable full band reproduction (frequency response of
20 Hz to 20 kHz or greater) for all 6.1 channels, and separation between the different channels is improved to the same level as that of a digital
discrete system.
DTS Neo:6 surround includes two modes for selecting the optimum decoding for the signal source.
• DTS Neo:6 Cinema
This mode is optimum for playing movies. Decoding is performed with emphasis on separation performance to achieve the same
atmosphere with 2-channel sources as with 6.1-channel sources.
This mode is effective for playing sources recorded in conventional surround formats as well, because the in-phase component is assigned
mainly to the center channel (C) and the reversed phase component to the surround (SL, SR and SB channels).
• DTS Neo:6 Music
This mode is suited mainly for playing music. The front channel (FL and FR) signals bypass the decoder and are played directly so there is
no loss of sound quality, and the effect of the surround signals output from the center (C) and surround (SL, SR and SB) channels add a
natural sense of expansion to the sound field.
ENGLISH
DTS 96/24
The sampling frequency, number of bits and number of channels used for recording of music, etc., in studios has been increasing in recent years,
and there are a growing number of high quality signal sources, including 96 kHz/24 bit 5.1-channel sources.
For example, there are high picture/sound quality DVD video sources with 96 kHz/24 bit stereo PCM audio tracks.
However, because the data rate for these audio tracks is extremely high, there are limits to recording them on two channels only, and since the
quality of the pictures must be restricted it is common to only include still pictures.
In addition, 96 kHz/24 bit 5.1-channel surround is possible with DVD audio sources, but DVD audio players are required to play them with this high
quality.
DTS 96/24 is a multi-channel digital signal format developed by Digital Theater Systems Inc. in order to deal with this situation.
Conventional surround formats used sampling frequencies of 48 or 44.1 kHz, so 20 kHz was about the maximum playback signal frequency. With
DTS 96/24, the sampling frequency is increased to 96 or 88.2 kHz to achieve a wide frequency range of over 40 kHz.
In addition, DTS 96/24 has a resolution of 24 bits, resulting in the same frequency band and dynamic range as 96 kHz/24 bit PCM.
As with conventional DTS Surround, DTS 96/24 is compatible with a maximum of 5.1 channels, so sources recorded using DTS 96/24 can be
played in high sampling frequency, multiple channel audio with such normal media as DVD videos and CDs.
Thus, with DTS 96/24, the same 96 kHz/24 bit multi-channel surround sound as with DVD-Audio can be achieved while viewing DVD-Video images
on a conventional DVD-Video player ( 1). Furthermore, with DTS 96/24 compatible CDs, 88.2 kHz/24 bit multi-channel surround can be achieved
using normal CD/LD players ( 1).
Even with the high quality multi-channel signals, the recording time is the same as with conventional DTS surround sources.
What’s more, DTS 96/24 is fully compatible with the conventional DTS surround format, so DTS 96/24 signal sources can be played with a
sampling frequency of 48 kHz or 44.1 kHz on conventional DTS or DTS-ES surround decoders ( 2).
1 A DVD player with DTS digital output capabilities (for CD/LD players, a player with digital outputs for conventional DTS CDs/LDs) and a
disc recorded in DTS 96/24 are required.
2 The resolution is 24 or 20 bits, depending on the decoder.

Note:
When a subwoofer has been connected and the virtual surround function is being used, the signal played from the subwoofer channel is
LFE only (only when playing Dolby Digital or DTS signals) for initial factory settings (i.e., the setting of the front speaker is “LARGE” and
the setting of the subwoofer mode is “NORM”).
When subwoofer effects are felt to be weak, while in the system setup mode try setting the subwoofer mode to “+MAIN”, or the front
speaker to “SMALL” in the system setup “Speaker Configuration” settings.
Making these settings will result in the low-frequency sounds of the front channel being played from the subwoofer.
