Important notes for users in the U.K.
Mains plug
This apparatus is fitted with an approved 13 Amp plug.
To change a fuse in this type of plug proceed as follows:
1 Remove fuse cover and fuse.
2 Fix new fuse which should be a BS1362 5 Amp, A.S.T.A. or
BSI approved type.
3 Refit the fuse cover.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your socket outlets, it should
be cut off and an appropriate plug fitted in its place. If the mains
plug contains a fuse, this should have a value of 5 Amp.
If a plug without a fuse is used, the fuse at the distribution board
should not be greater than 5 Amp.
Note: The severed plug must be disposed of to avoid a
possible shock hazard if it is inserted into a 13 Amp socket
elsewhere.
How to connect a plug
The wires in the mains lead are coloured with the following
code: blue = neutral (N), brown = live (L).
As these colours may not correspond with the colour markings
identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
• Connect the blue wire to the terminal marked N or coloured
black.
• Connect the brown wire to the terminal marked L or
coloured red.
• Do not connect either wire to the earth terminal in the plug,
marked E (or e ) or coloured green (or green and yellow).
Before replacing the plug cover, make certain that the cord grip
is clamped over the sheath of the lead - not simply over the
two wires.

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) provides the highest quality high-definition video
and multichannel audio. HDMI can carry both uncompressed high-definition video and
multichannel audio in all HD formats.Therefore just one single cable is needed for connecting
your DFR9000 to HDMI-enabled equipment.Your DFR9000 has one HDMI output for
connecting to an HDTV and two HDMI inputs for connecting to an HDMI-enabled SACD
player and another HDMI source device.
For HDMI connection an optional HDMI connection cable is required.
Notes:
– HDMI connection can only be made to HDMI-equipped components with HDCP (High
Bandwidth Digital Content Protection). If you wish to connect to a DVI connector (equipped with
HDCP), you will need a separate adapter (DVI to HDMI) to do so. A DVI (with HDCP)
connection, however, does not support audio signals. Consult your local audio dealer for more
information.
– If you are using an HDMI source device with HDCP as input to your DFR9000, the output
device (e.g. a TV) also has to be connected via HDMI (with HDCP).

4.8 Connecting speakers
We will describe connection of a complete setup of seven speakers (including subwoofer and
surround back speaker), but everyone’s home setup will vary. Simply connect the speakers you
have as described below.The receiver will work with just two stereo speakers (the front
speakers in the illustration) but a complete setup is best for surround sound. As a minimum we
recommend five speakers (two front speakers, a centre speaker and two surround speakers) for
good surround sound. It is possible to reproduce some kind of surround sound with fewer
speakers.This is done by redirecting the signals which are intended for the missing speakers to
the existing ones. See '6.4 Setting the speaker size and distance', '6,5 Setting the speaker
volume' '10.2 Balance menu' and '10.3 Speakers menu' on how to set up the receiver correctly
for the number and size of the speakers used.
Notes:
– Always switch off your receiver before making any connections.
– Speakers with a nominal impedance of 4 Ω and 8 Ω can be connected, but speakers with a
nominal impedance of 4 Ω give the best performance.
General
Twist exposed wire strands together.
Loosen speaker terminal and insert exposed wire.
Make sure you connect the speaker on the right to the right terminal and the speaker
on the left to the left terminal. Also make sure the + and - cables are connected to the
correct speaker terminals (+ to + and - to -).

For a 5.1 (or less) speaker configuration / if you wish to connect a passive subwoofer:
• Connect the passive subwoofer to the 6.1 S(urround) B(ack)/5.1 SUB terminals (17).
4.9 Positioning the speakers
Speaker positioning in a multichannel home theatre system can noticeably improve the quality
of sound reproduced. Speakers are usually designed to perform best at a particular position.
This could be on the floor, on stands, near the wall or away from walls.
Below you will find a few tips on getting the best sound from your speakers, but you should
also follow the instructions on positioning in the Instructions for use, supplied with your
speakers to get the most out of them.

WOOFER
General hints for positioning
• If possible, use the same model or brand of speakers for all front speakers.This creates a
seamless front soundstage and eliminates the possibility of distracting sonic disturbances
that occur when a sound moves across mismatched front-channel speakers.
• Avoid positioning the speakers in a corner, as this will boost the bass tones too much.
• Placing the speakers behind curtains, furniture etc. will reduce the treble response, thus
reducing the stereo effect considerably.The listener should still be able to 'see' the
speakers.
• Each room has different acoustic characteristics and the positioning possibilities are often
limited.You can find the best position for your speakers by experimenting. In general, the
speakers should be arranged as symmetrically as possible in the room.
FRONT
RIGHT
LISTENING POSITION
SURROUND
LEFT
SURROUND
RIGHT
SURROUND
BACK
Positioning the front speakers
• Place the front left and right speakers at equal distances from the TV.
• The front speakers should be arranged so that, viewed from the listener’s position, the
speaker connected to the 'L' terminals of the receiver is on the left and the speaker
connected to the 'R' terminals is on the right of the listener.This can be checked with the
balance control in the system menu.
• The best stereo effect is obtained when the two front speakers and the listener form an
equilateral triangle.
22
ENGLISH
•
•
The best height for the front speakers is when the high tone speakers (tweeters) are at
ear height (while seated).
To avoid magnetic interference with the picture on your TV, do not position the front
speakers too close to the TV.
Positioning the centre speaker
• The centre speaker should be placed centrally between the front speakers, e.g. underneath
or on top of the TV.
• The best height for the centre speaker is at the height of your ears (while seated).
Positioning the surround speakers
• The surround speaker connected to the 'SL' terminals of the receiver should be on the left
and the speaker connected to the 'SR' terminals on the right of the listener.This can be
checked with the balance control in the system menu.
• If possible, place the surround speakers slightly above ear level.
• The left and right surround speakers should face each other and be in line with the listener
or behind him.
• Place the surround back speaker right behind the listener at the same distance and height
as the surround left and right speakers.
• Try not to place the surround speakers further away from the listening position than the
front and centre speakers. Doing so can weaken the surround sound effect.
Positioning the subwoofer
A subwoofer can be used to enhance the bass performance of your system.
• If possible, place the subwoofer to the left or right of the centre speaker as seen from the
front of the centre speaker.
• Bass level can be increased by placing the subwoofer closer to a corner.
4.10 Connecting antennas
Caution!
Always make sure the receiver is switched off and unplugged from the wall outlet
before making or changing any connections.
FM antenna
• For best reception connect the FM connector (18) to the community or cable antenna
system or to a roof-mounted FM antenna with an impedance of 75 OHM (Ω).
• If none of these is available, you may use the wire antenna supplied for nearby stations
(reception could be poor).
• Vary the position and direction of the antenna until you find the strongest FM reception
and then secure the antenna in that position.

6.4 Setting the speaker size and distance
The receiver must know how many speakers are connected and how big they are.The size
(large or small) determines the amount of bass, sent from the receiver to the speakers.
To ensure the best possible surround sound you must specify the distance from your listening
position to the various speakers.This is particularly important when using Dolby surround and
DTS.You only need to make these settings once (unless you change the placement of your
current speaker system or add new speakers, etc.).
Note: Please refer to the Instructions for Use of your speaker system for more detaild setup
information.

ENGLISH
Tips:
•
When you have connected a passive subwoofer to the 6.1SB/5.1SUB sockets (17) in a 5.1
configuration, 'SB size' must be set to 'Subwoofer'.
•
Whenever a subwoofer is connected, 'SUB' must be set to 'YES' or 'Always'.
•
For speakers that are not connected, select 'None'.
•
The centre speaker is normally placed directly in the front of the listening room and closer
to the listening position than the front speakers.This means that sound from the centre
speaker will be heard before sound from the front speakers.To prevent this, set the centre
speaker distance ('C distance') a little further than it actually is. In this way sound from the
front and centre speakers will be heard at the same time.

9. Surround modes
Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is an encoding, transmission and decoding standard for stereo up to 5.1 channels
of digital audio. It is available only with digital input sources encoded with Dolby Digital data. It
provides up to five separate main audio channels and a special dedicated low-frequency effects
channel and delivers high-quality multichannel audio without compromising video performance.
Dolby Digital is the world wide audio standard for DVD-Video.
Dolby Digital EX
Available when the receiver is configured for 6.1 channel operation. Dolby Digital EX introduces
a centre rear channel to the 5.1 playback format.This additional channel provides increased
spatiality and realism for audio effects that pan from front to back, as well as enhanced
localization of surround channels that originate from directly behind the listener.
When used with movies or other programs that have special encoding, Dolby Digital EX
reproduces specially encoded soundtracks so that a full 6.1 soundfield is available. When the
receiver is set for 6.1 operation and a Dolby Digital signal is present, the EX mode is
automatically selected.
Dolby Pro Logic II x
Processes stereo movie and music content into six independent playback channels of full
bandwith surround sound.
Dolby Pro Logic II x Movie is optimized for movie soundtracks, especially those recorded in
Dolby Surround.The channel separation and movement of surround effects is comparable to
Dolby Digital EX.
Dolby Pro Logic II x Music is optimized for music.The surround effect is more enveloping
than Pro Logic II Movie.
DTS
DTS Digital Surround is a 5.1-channel surround sound format, similar to Dolby Digital. DTS
(Digital Theater System) features up to five discrete (independent) channels (front centre, front
left, front right, surround left, surround right) of full frequency sound plus a sixth channel for
low frequency effects (LFE).The LFE signal is usually reserved for the subwoofer or speakers
capable of reproducing low frequency ranges.
DTS ES
DTS Extended Surround is a 6.1-channel surround sound format that extends the 5.1-channel
surround sound format with one additional speaker located in the back of the listener (i.e., back
surround channel). DTS ES comes in two versions: DTS Extended Surround Matrix and DTS
Extended Surround Discrete 6.1.
DTS 96/24
DTS 96/24 offers high-quality 5.1-channel sound playback on DVD-Video and is fully backwardcompatible with all DTS decoders. '96' refers to a 96kHz sampling rate (compared to typical
48kHz sampling rate.) '24' refers to 24-bit word length.
DTS Neo:6
DTS Neo:6 provides up to six channels of matrix decoding from stereo matrix material.
Neo:6 Cinema is suitable for movies. Neo:6 Cinema delivers good channel separation for
movie soundtracks.
Neo:6 Music is suitable for music. It plays the stereo source more through the front left/right
speakers, and generates a natural, ambient surround and centre sound.

12. Glossary
AM
Amplitude Modulation. A method of radio transmission, by which the information part of the
signal causes the amplitude to vary without affecting the frequency.
Amplifier
An electronic device that takes in an original signal, gives it more power and provides it as an
output.
Analogue
A continuously varying action, or movement that takes time to change from one position to
another. Standard audio and video signals are analogue. An analogue signal has an infinite number
of levels between its highest and lowest value. (Not like digital, where changes are by steps.)
A/V input
Allows input of Audio/Video signals.
Balance
Adjusts the relative volume levels of left and right channels for optimal stereo effect.
Compensates for channel imbalance and non-symmetrical loudspeaker positioning
Bandwidth
A frequency range, or 'band' of frequencies between the limits defined by the 'half power
points', where the signal loss is -3dB. In audio and video, it is this band of frequencies that can
pass through a device without significant loss or distortion.The wider the bandwidth, the better
the quality that results, such as a sharper picture, better sound, etc.The higher the bandwidth
number the better the performance (300 MHz is better than 250 MHz.). When a signal passes
through a path with more than one device (including cables) the limiting factor (bottleneck) in
that path is the device with the narrowest bandwidth.
Bass
The lower range of audio frequencies, up to approximately 500 Hz.
Black level
More commonly referred to as 'brightness', the black level is the level of light produced on a
video screen.
Copy protection
Copy protection is a technical protection measure designed to prevent duplication of
copyrighted works.
CVBS
CVBS stands for 'Composite video, blanking, and sync'. A standard video signal as output by
VCRs and satellite receivers. CVBS combines the colour, luminance and synchronization
information in one signal.The audio signal is transferred separately.
DAB
Digital Audio Broadcast. DAB is a terrestrial digital broadcasting standard which is recognized
by the IUT (International Union for Telecommunications).The use of proper DAB frequencies
(Band III and L-Band) allows a good quality transmission. DAB programs are broadcast inside a
multiplex which is composed of six to ten radio stations on a single frequency. DAB can carry
not only audio but also PAD (Program Associated Data) or NPAD (Non Program Associated
Data) such as text, pictures, data and even videos: it is then called DMB (Digital Multimedia
Broadcasting).
dB
Decibel.The minimum change in sound intensity that a human ear can distinguish. A doubling of
volume is a 10 dB increase.To double volume in a stereo system, a 10-fold increase in power
output (WATTS) is required.
DCDi™
DCDi™ by Faroudja. stands for Directional Correlation Deinterlacing and is a package of
picture innovations that digitally adjusts and optimizes picture quality to optimal contrast, colour
and sharpness level.
Digital
A system of data or image values in the form of discrete, non-continuous codes, such as binary.
When data is in a digital format, it can be processed, stored (recorded) and reproduced easily
while maintaining its original integrity.
DLS
Dynamic Label Service. Radio text information, provided by DAB radio stations.
Dolby® Surround Sound
Dolby Stereo is the name given to the four-channel surround sound developed by Dolby
Laboratories and introduced into movie theaters in the 70s. It employed a matrix encoding
scheme called Dolby Surround which recorded four channels of information on two channels.
The two channels are decoded into L, R, Center and Surround upon playback.The centre
channel is recorded identically on the left and right channels. Also see '9. Surround modes'.
DTS Digital Surround
DTS: abbreviation for Digital Theater System. Like Dolby Digital, DTS is another 5.1-channel
surround sound format that is available in movie theaters, and as an optional soundtrack on
some DVD-Video movies for home theatre viewing. DTS is not a standard soundtrack format
for DVD-Video, and is not used by HDTV or digital satellite broadcasting.
Also see '9. Surround modes'.

ENGLISH
DVD
Digital Versatile Disc. An optical disc about the size of a CD-ROM, but capable of storing an
entire movie.The technology uses MPEG-2 compression.Typical capacity for these discs is 4.5
GB, or about 133 minutes of digital video. Originally called 'Digital Video Disk'.
DVI
DVI (Digital Video Interface) is a new form of video interface technology made to maximize
the quality of flat panel LCD monitors and high-end video graphics cards.
DVI is also a digital transfer method for HDTV, EDTV, Plasma Display, and other ultra-high-end
video displays for TV, movies, and DVDs.
FM
Frequency Modulation. A method of combining an information signal with a carrier signal so
that it may be transmitted. FM radio is frequency modulated. Audio is encoded on the carrier
by varying the frequency in response to the audio.
Frequency
The number of complete cycles per second of a musical tone or electronic signal, expressed in
Hertz (Hz).
Frequency response
The frequency range in which an electronic component can accurately reproduce its input.
Humans can hear from 20 Hz to 20,000Hz (20kHz). An ideal component would have a
Frequency Response, totally flat or without any deviation, from 20Hz to 20 kHz. Frequency
Response specifications are measured in dB based on how closely a component’s response
resembles that of the ideal.
Gain
A general term for an increase in signal power or voltage produced by an amplifier.
HDCP
Your DFR9000 supports High bandwith Digital Content Protection (HDCP), owned by Intel.
HDMI

that combines multi-channel audio and high definition video and that controls signals into a
single digital interface for use with DVD players, digital television, and other audiovisual devices.
HDTV
High Definition Television. HDTV refers to a complete product/system with the following
minimum performance attributes: a receiver that receives ATSC terrestrial digital transmissions
and decodes all ATSC Table 3 video formats; a display scanning format with active vertical
scanning lines of 720 progressive (720p), 1080 interlaced (1080i), or higher; aspect ratio
capabilities for displaying a 16:9 image; receives and reproduces, and/or outputs Dolby Digital
audio.
Hertz (Hz)
The basic unit of frequency. One hertz equals one cycle per second.
Image
A reproduction or imitation of a person or thing displayed by any type of visual media.
Interlacing
A video frame is made up of two fields. Interlacing is the process of scanning the picture onto
a video screen whereby the lines of one scanned field fall evenly between the lines of the
preceding field.
LED
Light emitting diode. A low-power, long life, light source, usually red, green or yellow in color.
Some LEDs can produce two different colors.
Level
The relative intensity of an audio or video source.
LFE
Low Frequency Effects channel. A special channel of 5 to 120Hz of information intended for
special effects such as explosions in movies.The LFE channel has an additional 10 dB headroom
in order to accomodate the required level.
Line out
Audio output, typically in level range of 1-2 Volts.This may be 10,000 -50,000 ohms, at -10dB
or -20dB.
L/R Audio
This abbreviation stands for Left and Right audio.
Macrovision
Macrovision provides licensing and copy protection solutions for the video, music, software and

information; brightness) and the chroma ('C' is an abbreviation for chroma, or color
information).
Sync
Synchronization. In video, sync is a means of controlling when things happen with respect to
other things.This is accomplished with timing pulses to insure that each step in a process
occurs at exactly the right time. For example, horizontal sync determines exactly when to begin
each horizontal line (sweep) of the electron beam.Vertical sync determines when to bring the
electron beam to the top left of the screen to start a new field.There are many other types of
sync in a video system. .Also called 'sync signal' or 'sync pulse'.
