bAbout Dynamic Volume
Audyssey Dynamic Volume™ solves the problem of large variations
in volume level between television programs, commercials, and
between the soft and loud passages of movies.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ™ is integrated into Dynamic Volume so that
as the playback volume is adjusted automatically, the perceived
bass response, tonal balance, surround impression, and dialog
clarity remain the same.
bAbout Dynamic EQ
Audyssey Dynamic EQ solves the problem of deteriorating sound
quality as volume is decreased by taking into account human
perception and room acoustics. Audyssey Dynamic EQ works in
tandem with Audyssey MultEQ® to provide well-balanced sound
for every listener at any volume level.

If the core wires touch the rear panel and the screws etc., or the ± sides touch each other, the protection circuit will be activated and the power indicator will flash red at intervals of 0.5 secs.
If the protection circuit is activated, the speaker output is isolated, and the power supply goes to the
standby state. If the power supply is turned off, after the power supply cord is withdrawn, please confirm that speaker cable and input cable are connected.
Also, if replaying large sound levels by using a speaker having an impedance less than that specified (eg,
4 Ω/ohms), the temperature will rise, and the protection circuit might be activated. The power supply
will go into the standby state, and the power indicator will flash red at 2 second intervals.
In this case, please switch off the power supply, and wait until the AVR-2309 has cooled down, and the
surrounding ventilation is good.
Even if there are no problems with the surrounding ventilation and connections, in the event of the protection circuit becoming activated, due to thinking that the AVR-2309 has failed, please contact DENON
Service center after switching off.

Copyright protection system (HDCP)
In order to play the digital video and audio signals of a Blu-ray, DVD- Video or DVD-Audio disc using HDMI/
DVI connections, both the connected Blu-ray Disc player / DVD player and monitor must be equipped for
a copyright protection system called “HDCP” (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection).
HDCP is a copy protection technology consisting of data encoding and mutual identification of the
devices.
The AVR-2309 is HDCP-compatible. For details on the Blu-ray Disc player / DVD player or monitor you are
using, refer to its operating instructions.
•By default, the HDMI audio signals are output from the speakers connected to the AVR-2309.
•To output the sound from the TV, make the settings at menu “Manual Setup” – “HDMI Setup” – “HDMI

When connecting with an HDMI/DVI converter cable (adapter)
•HDMI video signals are theoretically compatible with the DVI format.
When connecting to a monitor, etc., equipped with a DVI-D connector, connection is possible using an
HDMI/DVI converter cable, but depending on the combination of components in some cases the video
signals will not be output.
•When connecting using an HDMI/DVI converter adapter, the video signals may not be output properly
due to poor connections with the connected cable, etc.
Setup
•When the AVR-2309 and Blu-ray Disc player / DVD player are connected using an HDMI cable, also
connect the AVR-2309 and monitor using an HDMI cable.
•If the connected monitor or Blu-ray Disc player / DVD player only has a DVI-D connector, use an HDMI/
DVI converter cable. When using a DVI cable, no audio signals are transmitted.
•Use a Deep Color compatible cable for connection to Deep Color compatible devices.

NOTE
•The AVR-2309 cannot be controlled from another device via the HDMI cable.
•The audio signals output from the HDMI connector (sampling frequency, bit rate, etc.) may be restricted
by the connected device.
•Video signals are not output properly when using devices that are not HDCP-compatible.
•Video signals are not output if the input video signals do not match the monitor’s resolution. In this
case, switch the Blu-ray Disc player / DVD player’s resolution to a resolution with which the monitor is
compatible.
•If the menu “Manual Setup” – “HDMI Setup” – “HDMI Audio Out” setting (vpage 26) is set to
“AMP”, the sound may be interrupted when the monitor’s power is turned off.
•Use a cable on which the HDMI logo is indicated (a certified HDMI product) for connection to the HDMI
connector. Normal playback may not be possible when using a cable other than one on which the HDMI
logo is indicated (a non-HDMI-certified product).
•If the monitor or Blu-ray Disc player / DVD player does not support Deep Color, deep color signal transfer
is not possible.

• Audyssey MultEQ® automatically measures the acoustical problems
in the listening environment to create the best audio experience for
your home theater.
• Audyssey MultEQ optimizes a large listening area where one or
more listeners are seated.
Measurements are performed by placing the calibrated microphone
(DM-A409) successively at multiple positions throughout the
listening area as shown in Example q. For best results, it is strongly
recommended to measure 6 positions so that the measurements
have the proper spatial weighting.
Even if the listening environment is small as shown in Example w,
measuring at multiple points throughout the listening environment
results in more effective correction.

Step 3:Calculation
The Audyssey MultEQ auto setup function detects the presence of
each speaker and automatically calculates the speaker size, channel
level, distance, and optimal crossover frequency setting. Audyssey
MultEQ corrects acoustical distortions within the listening area.
Before starting, connect and position all of your speakers.
Once started, MultEQ will play a series of test tones through each
speaker.
The speaker connection and polarity are detected at the first
measurement position (main listening position). The following
attributes are also determined at this time: “Speaker Size”, “Speaker
Distance”, “Channel Level”, “Crossover Frequency”.

• Loud test sounds may be played during Audyssey MultEQ automatic
speaker setup. This is part of normal operation. If there is background
noise in room, these test signals will increase in volume.
• Do not stand between the speakers and setup microphone or allow
obstacles in the path while the measurements are being made. This
will cause inaccurate readings.
• Make the room as quiet as possible. Background noise can disrupt
the room measurements. Close windows, silence cell phones,
televisions, radios, air conditioners, fluorescent lights, home
appliances, light dimmers, or other devices as measurements may
be affected by these sounds.
Cell phones should be placed away from all audio electronics during
the measurement process as Radio Frequency Interference (RFI)
may cause measurement disruptions (even if the cell phone is not in
use).
• Operating MASTER VOLUME during the measurements will cancel
the measurements.

About Dynamic EQ
Audyssey Dynamic EQ™ solves the problem of deteriorating sound
quality as volume is decreased by taking into account human
perception and room acoustics. Dynamic EQ selects the correct
frequency response and surround levels moment-by-moment at
any user-selected volume setting. The result is bass response,
tonal balance, and surround impression that remain constant
despite changes in volume. Dynamic EQ combines information
from incoming source levels with actual output sound levels in the
room, a prerequisite for delivering a loudness correction solution.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ works in tandem with Audyssey MultEQ to
provide well-balanced sound for every listener at any volume level.
About Dynamic Volume
Audyssey Dynamic Volume™ solves the problem of large variations
in volume level between television programs, commercials, and
between the soft and loud passages of movies.
Dynamic Volume looks at the preferred volume setting by the user and
then monitors how the volume of program material is being perceived
by listeners in real time to decide whether an adjustment is needed.
Whenever necessary, Dynamic Volume makes the necessary rapid
or gradual adjustments to maintain the desired playback volume
level while optimizing the dynamic range. Audyssey Dynamic EQ is
integrated into Dynamic Volume so that as the playback volume is
adjusted automatically, the perceived bass response, tonal balance,
surround impression, and dialog clarity remain the same whether
watching movies, flipping between television channels, or changing
from stereo to surround sound content.

About the RESTORER function
Specifications
•Such compressed audio formats as MP3, WMA (Windows Media
Audio) and MPEG-4 AAC reduce the amount of data by eliminating
signal components that are hard for the human ear to hear. The
RESTORER function generates the signals eliminated upon
compression, restoring the sound to conditions near those of the
original sound before compression. It also corrects the sense of
volume of the bass to obtain richer sound with compressed audio
signals.
•This is displayed on the menu and can be set when the analog
signals (including AM/FM signals) or PCM signals (fs = 44.1/48
kHz) are input.
For details on adjusting individual parameters, see “Adjusting the parameters” (vpage 38).

wSetting 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.
Setup
Sound positioning directly to the rear can be achieved easily by adding
a surround back speaker to a 5.1-channel system.
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.

Specifications
Dolby Digital is a multichannel digital signal format developed by Dolby
Laboratories.
A total of 5.1-channels are played: 3 front channels (“FL” , “FR” and
“C”), 2 surround channels (“SL” and “SR”) and the “LFE” channel for
low frequencies.
Because of this, there is no crosstalk between channels and a realistic
sound field with a “three-dimensional” feeling (sense of distance,
movement and positioning) is achieved.
A real, overpowering sense of presence is achieved when playing
movie sources in AV rooms as well.

Dolby Digital Plus
DTS Surround
DTS Digital Surround
DTS Digital Surround is the standard digital surround format of DTS,
Inc., compatible with a sampling frequency of 44.1 or 48 kHz and up
to 5.1-channels of digital discrete surround sound.
Dolby TrueHD
DTS-HD High Resolution Audio
Dolby TrueHD is a high definition audio technology developed by Dolby
Laboratories, using lossless coding technology to faithfully reproduce
the sound of the studio master.
This format is compatible with a maximum sampling frequency of 96
kHz and up to 7.1-channels, so it is used for applications particularly
prioritizing sound quality.
DTS-HD High Resolution Audio is an improved version of the
conventional DTS, DTS-ES and DTS 96/24 signals formats, compatible
with sampling frequencies of 96 or 48 kHz and up to 7.1-channels
of discrete digital sound. High data bit rate performance provides
high quality sound. This format is fully compatible with conventional
products, including conventional DTS digital surround 5.1-channel
data.
Dolby Pro Logic g
Dolby Pro Logic g is a matrix decoding technology developed by Dolby
Laboratories.
Regular music such as that on CDs is encoded into 5-channels to
achieve an excellent surround effect.
The surround channel signals are converted into stereo and full band
signals (with a frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz or greater) to
create a “three-dimensional” sound image offering a rich sense of
presence for all stereo sources.
DTS-HD Master Audio
Dolby Pro Logic gx
DTS-ES™ Discrete 6.1 is a 6.1-channel discrete digital audio format
adding a surround back (SB) channel to the DTS digital surround sound.
Decoding of conventional 5.1-channel audio signals is also possible
according to the decoder.
Dolby Pro Logic gx is a further improved version of the Dolby Pro
Logic g matrix decoding technology.
Audio signals recorded in 2-channels are decoded to achieve a natural
sound with up to 7.1-channels.
There are 3 modes: “Music” suited for playing music, “Cinema”
suited for playing movies, and “Game” which is optimized for playing
games.
Manufactured under license from Dolby Laboratories.

Audyssey MultEQ®
Audyssey MultEQ is a room equalization solution that calibrates any
audio system so that it can achieve optimum performance for every
listener in a large listening area. Based on several room measurements,
MultEQ calculates an equalization solution that corrects for both
time and frequency response problems in the listening area and also
performs a fully automated surround system setup.
xvYCC
Next-generation “xvYCC” color space supports 1.8 times as many
colors as existing HDTV signals.
Lets HDTVs display colors more accurately.
Enables displays with natural, vivid colors.
Because consumer electronics devices are using increasingly
complex digital signal processing to enhance the clarity and detail of
the content, synchronization of video and audio in user devices has
become a greater challenge and could potentially require complex enduser adjustments. HDMI 1.3 incorporates an automatic video/audio
synching capability that allows devices to perform this synchronization
automatically with total accuracy.

Audyssey Dynamic Volume solves the problem of large variations in
volume level between television programs, commercials, and between
the soft and loud passages of movies.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ is integrated into Dynamic Volume so that as
the playback volume is adjusted automatically, the perceived bass
response, tonal balance, surround impression, and dialog clarity
remain the same.
Eliminates on-screen color banding, for smooth tonal transitions and
subtle gradations between colors.
Enables increased contrast ratio.
Can represent many times more shades of gray between black and

At 30-bit pixel depth, a four times improvement would be the minimum,
and the typical improvement would be eight times or more.
