Audio/Video Receiver
INTRODUCTION
DTS* (Digital Theater Systems) decoder equipped
— DTS is a digital sound system introduced
in theaters. Playback of DVD, LD, and CD recorded in DTS audio creates the environment of a theater or
the sensation of a concert hall in your home.
R
Dolby** Digital and Dolby Pro Logic — No need to worry about program formats! When playing Dolby
Digital or Dolby Pro Logic software in the 2 (Dolby) mode, decoding switches automatically according to
the input signal. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy! (When connecting a DVD/LD player or LD
player using the 2 RF (AC-3) output, a commercially available RF demodulator (RFD-1) is required.)
ADVANCED THEATER modes — Four sound modes that enhance DTS and Dolby audio performance
by simulating the environment of a movie theater (DRAMA, ACTION), or the ambience of a concert hall
(MUSICAL). With EXPANDED THEATER, you can enjoy Dolby Pro Logic encoded software in simulated
Dolby Digital.
Various Surround Effects (DSP) — The DSP (Digital Signal Processing) surround mode allows you to
transform your living room into six different sonic environments when listening to music or watching
movies.
Midnight Listening Mode — When late night hours or other factors require that the volume be kept
low, the surround effects may tend to become less than satisfactory. When the midnight listening mode is
on, you can enjoy the effects of quality surround sound even at low volumes.
DVD 5.1 channel input — A special 5.1 Channel input makes the VSX–D309 fully compatible with
Dolby Digital decoders and DVD players with 5.1 channel outputs.
The Energy-saving Design — This unit is designed to use minimal electricity when power is switched
OFF (in Standby mode). Regarding the value of the power consumption in standby mode, refer to
“Specifications” on pages 44.
Remote Control of Other Components — The supplied remote control can be used to operate a
variety of other components simply by recalling the appropriate preset code. In addition, the multioperation functions allow you to perform a variety of operations automatically.
Note to the Cable TV System Installer:
This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer's attention to Article 820-40 of the
National Electrical Code that 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.

CONNECTING DIGITAL COMPONENTS
You can connect your audio and video equipment that have digital outputs by either digital or analog
hook ups (you don't need to do both). In order to use DVDs with Dolby Digital/DTS soundtracks you
need to make either digital audio connections or 5.1 channel analog connections (sse facing page) from
your DVD player. You can make digital conections by using either coaxial or optical cords (you don’t need
to use both). The quality of these two types of connections is the same but since some digital components
only have one type of digital terminal, it is a matter of matching like with like (for example, the coaxial
out from the component to coaxial in on the receiver). The VSX-D309 has one coaxial and one optical
input for a total of two digital inputs. You can use either for any type of digital component (DVD, CD,
CD-R, etc.). The diagram below just gives examples of possible connections.
Always make sure that the receiver is switched off and unplugged from the wall outlet before making or
changing any connections.

Hints on Speaker Placement
Speakers are usually designed with a particular placement in mind. Some are designed to be
floorstanding, while others should be placed on stands to sound their best. Some should be placed near a
wall; others should be placed away from walls. Follow the guidelines on placement that the speaker
manufacturer provided with your particular speakers.
• Place the front left and right speakers at equal
distances from the TV.
• When placing speakers near the TV, we
recommend using magnetically shielded
speakers to prevent possible interference,
such as discoloration of the picture when the
TV is switched on. If you do not have
magnetically shielded speakers and notice
discoloration of the TV picture, move the
speakers farther away from the TV.
• Install the center speaker above or below the
TV so that the sound of the center channel is
localized at the TV screen.
CAUTION: If you choose to install the center speaker on top of the TV, be sure to
secure it with putty, or by other suitable
means,to reduce the risk of damage or
injury resulting from the speaker falling
from the TV in the event of external
shocks such as earthquakes.
To achieve the best possible surround sound,
install your speakers as shown below. Be sure all
speakers are installed securely to prevent
accidents and improve sound quality.

Repeat steps 3 and 4 to set other surround modes.
Press ENTER to exit the setting mode.
memo
The setting mode is automatically exited if no operation is
performed for 20 seconds.
SPEAKER (Front, Center, Surround) setting mode
This setting establishes the size and configuration of the speaker system you have connected. So, for
example, here you set whether you have connected surround speakers or not, and how big they are.
Selecting “Large” or “Small” will determine how much bass is sent by the receiver to the speakers being
set. This setup system has certain constraints. For example, all your speakers cannot be set to “Large,” you
need to decide which speakers should receive the most bass and set them to “Large.”
In the display, “F”, “C”, and “S” refer to front, center, and surround speakers respectively. Speaker size is
denoted as “L” for large speakers, “S” for small speakers, and “*” (asterisk) if no speaker is connected.
memo If the cone size (radius) of the speaker is larger than 5 inches, please set to Large.
Switch the speaker setting mode according to
the speakers you hooked up. Use the 5 or ∞
buttons.
The configurations shown on the right will
appear in the display on the front of the
receiver. One of them should match your
speaker set up. Cycle through the different
possibilities until you find the one that
matches your set up.

SUB WOOFER ON/PLUS/OFF setting mode
Sets whether the SUB WOOFER is used or not. Also, when used you have the option to use the “PLUS”
setting.
• Initial setting is “ON”.
memo
• Setting the front speaker size to “Small” in the SPEAKER setting mode automatically locks
the sub woofer in the “ON” position.
• Use the PLUS for extra bass. When you use PLUS you will get the bass sounds from the sub
woofer even if the front speakers are set to “Large”.
Press 5 or ∞ to select sub woofer ON, PLUS or OFF.
dB
Crossover frequency setting mode
Crossover frequency is the point where the receiver divides the high and low sounds (the frequencies)
between the speakers. Since most smaller speakers can’t handle deep bass tones, this setting allows you to
send those sounds to the sub woofer (or speakers set to “Large” if you don’t have a sub woofer) instead of the
speakers set to “Small” in your system. Choose the point at which you want the frequency routed to the sub
woofer (or “Large” speakers).
We recommend setting this to 200 Hz if smaller bookshelf-type speakers are used for your “Small” speakers.
memo •
Initial setting is “100 Hz”.
• If all speakers (front, center, and surround) are set to “Large” in SPEAKER setting mode,
crossover frequency cannot be set because there are no “Small” speakers (*** appears in the
display).
dB
100Hz
150Hz
200Hz
Press % or fi to specify the crossover frequency for your small speakers
(100 Hz, 150 Hz or 200 Hz).
100 Hz
Sends bass frequencies below 100 Hz to the sub woofer (or
“Large” speakers).
150 Hz
Sends bass frequencies below 150 Hz to the sub woofer (or
“Large” speakers).
200 Hz
Sends bass frequencies below 200 Hz to the sub woofer (or
“Large” speakers).
LFE attenuator setting mode
Dolby Digital and DTS audio sources include ultra-low bass tones. Set the LFE attenuator as needed to
prevent the ultra-low bass tones from distorting the sound from the speakers.
memo •
Initial setting is “0 dB”.
• When ∞ is selected (∗∗ appears in the display), LFE is not available.
Press 5 or ∞ to set the attenuation level (0 dB, 10 dB or ∗∗ dB(∞)).

memo •
Initial setting is “OFF”.
• If the SUB WOOFER is set to “OFF” in the SUB WOOFER ON/OFF setting mode, the low
cut filter cannot be set.
Press 5 or ∞ to select low cut filter ON or OFF.
dB
FRONT speakers distance setting mode
Sets the distance from the FRONT speakers to the listening position.
memo •
Initial setting is 10 ft.
• One step equals about 1ft.
dB
Press 5 or ∞ to set the distance of the FRONT speakers from the main
listening position (up to 30 steps).
CENTER speaker distance setting mode
Normally as the Center speaker is placed directly in front in the listening room, it is closer to the listening
position than the Front speakers. This means that the sound from the Center speaker will be heard before
the Front speakers. To prevent this, set the Center speaker distance setting to delay the sound from the
Center speaker so that the sound from the Front and Center speakers will be heard at the same time.
memo • Initial setting is 10 ft.
• When “C∗” is selected in SPEAKER setting mode, the Center distance cannot be set.
• One step equals about 1 ft.
dB
Press 5 or ∞ to set the distance of the CENTER speaker from the
main listening position (up to 30 steps).
SURROUND speakers distance setting mode
Use to set the SURROUND speakers distance. Like the CENTER speaker position, the SURROUND
speakers may be set in a location closer or farther than the FRONT speakers. Set the distance of the
SURROUND speakers accurately to hear sounds coming from both FRONT and SURROUND speakers at
the same time.
memo • Initial setting is 10 ft.
• When “S∗” is selected in SPEAKER setting mode, the SURROUND distance cannot be set.
• One step equals about 1 ft.
dB
Press 5 or ∞ to set the distance of the SURROUND speakers from the
main listening position (up to 30 steps).
17
Dynamic range control setting mode
Dynamic range is the difference between the loudest and softest sounds in any given signal. The dynamic
range control helps you play back sounds so the quieter sounds are audible yet the louder sounds don’t
get distored. It does this by compressing the dynamic range. When watching a movie at low volume,
setting this function enables low level sounds to be heard more easily but you won’t be jolted by lounder
sounds.
memo • Initial setting is “OFF”.
• When the volume level is increased, set to OFF.
• For listening enjoyment at low volumes, set to “MAX” for maximum dynamic range compression.
• Dynamic range control is effective only when a Dolby Digital signal is being played back.
Press 5 or ∞ to set the dynamic range control (OFF, MAX, or MID).
dB
Dual mono setting
The dual mono setting can only be used when listening to Dolby Digital discs that have dual mono
software encoded in them. With this setting you can choose which channel in the dual mono setting you
want to listen to. Thus, it is useful for soundtracks that have one language on one channel and a different
language on the other. Remember you can only use this setting if you have Dolbly Digital software with
this feature and want to isolate one of the channels therein. Otherwise, just ignore this function.
There are two different ways to route the sound in the dual mono setting, one is with Dolby Digital on,
the other with Dolby Digital off. If Dolby Digital is switched on, the ch1 setting will play ch1 through
your center speaker. The ch2 setting will play ch2 though your center speaker and the MIX setting will
play both channels through the center speaker. With Dolby Digital off, the dual mono sound routing is as
follows: In the ch1 setting your will hear channel 1 out of both front speakers. In the ch2 setting you will
hear channel 2 out of both speakers. In the L. c1 R. c2 setting the speakers will play the soundtrack
independently of each other. The left front speker will play channel 1 and the right front speaker will play
channel 2. The last setting, MIX, mixes both channels and plays them out of both speakers .
memo
• The default setting of this feature is L C 1 R C 2.
Press 5 or ∞ to cycle through the possible DUAL MONO settings.

this in the DIGITAL/ANALOG indicator on the front of the receiver.
SETTING THE VOLUME LEVEL OF EACH CHANNEL (ADJUSTING THE SPEAKER VOLUME BALANCE)
memo
• Since the SUB WOOFER transmits an ultra-low frequency its sound may seem quieter than
it actually is.
• The speaker volume can be adjusted without outputting the test tone by pressing CHANNEL LEVEL or CHANNEL SELECT .

DIRECT FUNCTION
The direct function is a useful feature which allows you keep the receiver in one function (for example,
CD) while putting the remote control in a different function. This could let you, for example, use the
remote control to set up and listen to a CD on the receiver and then use the remote control to rewind a
tape in your VCR while you continue to listen to your CD player.
When the DIRECT function is ON any MULTI CONTROL button you press will change the function of
both the receiver and the remote control. When you turn the DIRECT function OFF, you can operate the
remote control without effecting the receiver. Thus you could switch the remote control the VCR and
operate that component while the receiver plays a different component.

SOUND MODES
LEARNING ABOUT THE SOUND MODES
The sound modes are explained here.
There are two cinema modes: STANDARD, and ADVANCED THEATER. These are designed to be used with
multi channel surround sound audio/visual sources (like DVDs and LDs). Intrinsic to home theater, these
modes can deliver realistic and powerful surround sound that recreates the movie theater experience. You
may need to experiment with them to see which settings suit your home system and personal tastes.
The DSP and STEREO modes are designed to be used with music sources but some DSP modes are also
suited for film soundtracks. Again, try different settings with various soundtracks to see which you like.
STANDARD mode
This mode is for pure decoding of Dolby Digital, DTS and Dolby Surround. No special effects are added. It is
good for enjoying movies that have been recorded in Dolby Digital, DTS or Dolby Surround.
ADVANCED THEATER modes
MUSICAL
Simulates the acoustic environment of a large concert hall and is suitable for music or musical sources
marked
(
) or
.
DRAMA
Simulates the relaxed environment of a classic medium size movie theater, and is suitable for watching
(
) or
.
dramas on sources marked
ACTION
Simulates the acoustic environment of a modern large movie theater. You can enjoy the power and
dynamics of motion picture audio which is suitable for action movies on sources marked
,
or
.
EXPANDED
This mode is especially designed to give sound depth to stereo sources. The overall effect builds a
dynamic and broad sound space, allowing two-channel (stereo) signals to faithfully imitate a five speaker
sound. The mode should be used in conjunction with Dolby Pro Logic for sources bearing the
mark.

DSP modes
The DSP (Digital Signal Processing) modes allow you to transform your living room into a variety of different
sonic environments when playing standard (two-channel) stereo sources, Dolby Pro Logic sources, and Dolby
Digital sources. If you try to add this effect to functions which can not use it “SP off” flashes in the display.
HALL 1
Simulates the acoustic environment of a large concert hall of wooden construction. Complex delay of
reflected sounds coupled with reverberation effects create a dynamic and beautiful sound characteristic
of an orchestra performing in a concert hall, making it suitable for classical music
HALL 2
Simulates the acoustic environment of a concert hall with stone walls. The rich reverberations and
natural fullness of the sound create the auditory impression of being in a concert hall, making it suitable
for classical music.
JAZZ
Simulates the acoustic environment of a jazz club. Less delay on the reflected sounds emphasizes the
sensation of hearing a live band.
DANCE
Simulates the acoustic environment and strong bass sound of a nightclub with a square dance floor. A
short delay on the reflected sounds emulates the raw power of the dance music.
THEATER 1
Adjusts the delay of the reflected sound to simulate the acoustic environment of a medium sized movie
theater.
THEATER 2
Simulates the acoustic environment of a theater while maintaining proper localization of each channel.

memo When playing LD recorded in Dolby Digital
When connecting a DVD/LD player or LD player using the 2 RF (AC-3) output, a commercially available RF demodulator (RFD-1) is required. The RF demodulator changes the RF signal
to a digital signal which is then processed by the receiver at the digital input jacks. For more
details, refer to the instruction manual supplied with the RFD-1.

MEMORIZING STATIONS
If you often listen to a particular radio station, it's convenient to have the receiver store the frequency for
easy recall whenever you want to listen to that station. This saves the effort of manually tuning in each
time. The VSX-D309 can memorize up to 33 stations, stored in three banks, or classes, (A,B and C) of 10
stations each. When memorizing FM frequencies, the receiver also stores the MPX setting (auto stereo or
mono, see p.32). The process for memorizing stations is only possible from the controls on the front
panel of the receiver.

This product is warranted by RadioShack against manufacturing defects in material and workmanship
under normal use for two (2) years from the date of purchase from RadioShack company-owned stores
and authorized RadioShack franchisees and dealers. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED HEREIN, RadioShack
MAKES NO EXPRESS WARRANTIES AND ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THOSE OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE LIMITED IN DURATION
TO THE DURATION OF THE WRITTEN LIMITED WARRANTIES CONTAINED HEREIN. EXCEPT AS
PROVIDED HEREIN, RadioShack SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY TO CUSTOMER

PROFIT OR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, EVEN IF
RadioShack HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
Some states do not allow the limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts or the exclusion of
incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. In the
event of a product defect during the warranty period, take the product and the RadioShack sales receipt
as proof of purchase date to any RadioShack store. RadioShack will, at its option, unless otherwise
provided by law: (a) correct the defect by product repair without charge for parts and labor; (b) replace
the product with one of the same or similar design; or (c) refund the purchase price. All replaced parts
and products, and products on which a refund is made, become the property of RadioShack. New or
reconditioned parts and products may be used in the performance of warranty service. Repaired or
replaced parts and products are warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period. You will be
charged for repair or replacement of the product made after the expiration of the warranty period.
This warranty does not cover: (a) damage or failure caused by or attributable to acts of God, abuse,
accident, misuse, improper or abnormal usage, failure to follow instructions, improper installation or
maintenance, alteration, lightning or other incidence of excess voltage or current; (b) any repairs other
than those provided by a RadioShack Authorized Service Facility; (c) consumables such as fuses or
batteries; (d) cosmetic damage; (e) transportation, shipping or insurance costs; or (f) costs of product
removal, installation, set-up service adjustment or reinstallation.
