The PRE OUT jacks, HEADPHONE jack and SPEAKER terminals
include a muting circuit. Because of this, the output signals are
greatly reduced for several seconds after the power 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.

• 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.
• 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 _/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:
• The on-screen display signals are output with priority to the S-VIDEO MONITOR OUT jack during playback of a video component. For example,
if the TV monitor is connected to both the AVR-2803/983'S S-Video and video monitor output jacks and signals are input to the AVR-2803/983
from a video source (VDP, etc.) connected to both the S-Video and video input jacks, the on-screen display signals are output with priority to
the S-Video monitor output. If you wish to output the signals to the video monitor output jack, do not connect a cord to the S-VIDEO
MONITOR OUT jack. (For details, see page 30.)
• The AVR-2803/983'S on-screen display function is designed for use with high resolution monitor TVs, so it may be difficult to read small
characters on TVs with small screens or low resolutions.

NOTES:
-- Assignment of low frequency signal range -• The only 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 menu. 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 page 18}.
• When the "LFE+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.
Selection of the "LFE " play mode will play the low frequency signal range of the channel selected with "Large" from that channel only.
Therefore, the low frequency signal range that are played from the subwoofer channel are only the low frequency signal range of LFE (only
during Dolby Digital or DTS signal playback) and the channel specified as "Small" in the setup menu.
Select the play mode that provides bass reproduction with quantity.
When the subwoofer is set to "Yes", bass sound is output from the subwoofer regardless of the subwoofer mode setting in surround modes
other than Dolby/DTS.
In surround modes other than Dolby Digital and DTS, if the subwoofer is set to "YES", the low frequency portion is always output to the
subwoofer channel. For details, refer to "Surround Modes and Parameters" on page 60.

DSP SURROUND
SIMULATION
• The AVR-2803/983 is equipped with a high performance DSP (Digital Signal Processor) which uses digital signal processing to synthetically
recreate the sound field. One of seven 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. These surround modes can also be used
for program sources not recorded in Dolby Surround Pro Logic, Dolby Digital or DTS.

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.

ADDITIONAL
INFORMATION
There are currently various types of multi-channel
signals (signals or formats with more than two channels).
• 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.
• Types of sources
• Movie audio
Sources can be divided into two major categories.
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
properties are used.

• Other types of audio These signals are designed to recreate a 360 ° sound field using three to five speakers.
In this case the speakers should surround the listener from all sides to create a uniform sound
field from 360 °. Ideally the surround speakers should function as "point" sound sources in the
same way as the front 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.

Movement of acoustic image from SR to SB to SL
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. The WIDE
SCREEN mode is a mode for achieving surround sound with up to 7.1 channels using surround back speakers, for sources recorded in
conventional Dolby Surround as well as Dolby Digital 5.1 channel and DTS Surround 5.1-channel sources. Furthermore, all the Denon original
surround modes (see page 55) are compatible with 7.1-channel playback, so you can enjoy 7.1 channel sound with any signal source.
• Number of surround back speakers
Though the surround back channel only consists of 1 channel of playback signals for 6.1-channel sources (DTS-ES, etc.), we recommend using
two speakers. When using speakers with dipolar characteristics in particular, it is essential to use two speakers.
Using two speakers results in a smoother blend with the sound of the surround channels and better sound positioning of the surround back
channel when listening from a position other than the center.
• 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.

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, Doiby 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.

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 Do[by 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, crossta[k, 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-2603/983, 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-2803/983 (see page 53) 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.

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

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 53.)
The DTS-ES decoder includes another function,

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 furl 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 Nee: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 conven6onsl 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 Nee:6 Music
This mode is suited mainly for playing music. Changes in the sound quality are reduced by decoding with emphasis on the front channel
signals (FL and FR), and a natural sense of expansion is given to the sound field by the effect of the surround signals output from the center
(C} and surround (SL, SR and SB) channels.

The sampling frequency, number of bits and number of channels used for recording of music, etc., in studios has been increasing _nrecent 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.
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.
With
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).
