Speaker placement
ENGLISH
Ideal speaker placement varies depending on the
size of your room and the wall coverings, etc. The
typical example of speaker placement and
recommendations are as follows :
■Front left and right speakers and center speaker
• Place the front speakers with their front surfaces as
flush with TV or monitor screen as possible.
• Place the center speaker between the front left and
right speakers and no further from the listening
position than the front speakers.
• Place each speaker so that sound is aimed at the
location of the listener’s ears when at the main
listening position.
■Surround left and right speakers
• Place the surround speakers approximately 1 meter
(40 inches) above the ear level of a seated listener
on the direct left and right of them or slightly behind.
■Surround back left and right speakers
• Place the surround back speakers at the back facing
the front at a narrower distance than front speakers.
• When using a single 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 TV or screen at the
front center, resulting in interference and making the
sense of movement from the front to the back less
sharp.

■Subwoofer
• The subwoofer reproduces powerful deep bass
sounds.
Place a subwoofer anywhere in the front as desired.
■Notes :
•When using a conventional TV, to avoid interference with the TV picture, use only magnetically shielded front
left and right and center speakers.
•To obtain the best surround effects, the speakers except the subwoofer should be full range speakers.

ENGLISH
10. CONNECTING ROOM 2 OUTS
• ROOM 2 playback feature allows you to play a different program source in another room as well as one source
in the main room at the same time.
• For ROOM 2 playback, connect the ROOM 2 OUT jacks to the amplifier, TV, etc. installed in another room, or
connect the SURROUND BACK/ROOM 2 speaker terminals to the speakers.
• When connecting the SURROUND BACK/ROOM 2 speaker terminals, you should assign the power amplifier
for surround back/room 2 channels to the ROOM 2.
(For details, refer to "When selecting the AMP ASSIGN" on page 49.)
Notes :
• To minimize hum or noise, use high quality connection cords.

Achieving higher purity of sound quality
SURROUND SOUND
ENGLISH
• This receiver incorporates a sophisticated Digital Signal Processor that allows you to create optimum sound quality and sound
atmosphere in your personal Home Theater.
Surround modes
■DTS Digital Surround
• 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.
DTS Digital Surround(also called simply DTS) is a multi-channel
digital signal format which can handle higher data rates. Discs
bearing the “
” include the recording of up to
5.1 channels of digital signals, which can be generally thought
to provide better sound quality due to the lower audio
compression required.
It also provides wide dynamic range and separation, resulting
in magnificent sound.
■DTS - ES Extended Surround™
(
• DTS Neo : 6 Music
This mode is suited mainly for playing music. The front left
and front right signals bypass the decoder and are played
directly so there is no loss of sound quality, and the effect of
the surround signals from the center, surround left, surround
right and surround back channels adds a natural sense of
expansion to the sound field.
)
This is a new multi channel digital signal format which greatly
improves the 360- degree surround impression and space
expression thanks to further expanded surround signals,
offering high compatibility with the conventional DTS format.
In addition to the 5.1 channels, DTS-ES Extended Surround
also offers the 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 follows:
■DTS 96/24
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, this format has a resolution
of 24 bits, resulting in the same frequency band and dynamic
range as 96kHz / 24 bit PCM signals.
As with conventional DTS surround, DTS 96/24 is compatible
with a maximum of 5.1 channels. DTS 96/24 is fully
compatible with the conventional DTS surround format, so
DTS 96/24 sources can be played using a conventional DTS
5.1 channel decoder.
• DTS-ES™ Discrete 6.1
Because the signals for 6.1 channels (including the surround back
channel) are fully independent, it is possible to achieve a sense
that the acoustic image 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
surround back channel signals are automatically downmixed
to the surround left and surround right channels so that none
of the signal components are lost.

■Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is the multi- channel digital signal format
developed by Dolby Laboratories. Discs bearing the
“
” includes the recording of up to 5.1 channels of
• DTS - ES™ Matrix 6.1
With this format, the additional surround back channel
signals undergo matrix encoding and are input to the
surround left and surround right channels beforehand. During
playback, they are decoded to the surround left, surround
right and surround back channels.
Because the bit stream format is 100% compatible with
conventional DTS signals, the effect of the DTS-ES Matrix 6.1
format can be achieved even with DTS 5.1- channel signal
sources. Of course, it is possible to play DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 channel signal sources with a DTS 5.1 - channel decoder.
When DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 or Matrix 6.1 sources are decoded
with a DTS - ES decoder, the format is automatically detected
upon decoding and the optimum surround mode is selected.
However, some DTS - ES Matrix 6.1 sources may be detected
as DTS sources. In this case, the DTS - ES Matrix mode
should be selected manually to play these sources.
digital signals, which can reproduce much better sound
quality, spatial expansion and dynamic range characteristics
than the previous Dolby Surround effect.
■Dolby Digital EX
This mode creates the back (sometimes also referred to as
“surround center”) signals from the surround left and right
signals in Dolby Digital 5.1 channel source using a matrix
decoder and provides 6.1 channel surround playback. For the
best results, this mode should be selected during playback of
sources(bearing the “
”) recorded in Dolby Digital
EX. With this additional channel, you can experience more
dynamic and realistic moving sound especially.
When Dolby Digital EX sources are decoded with a Dolby
Digital EX decoder, the format is automatically detected upon
decoding and the Dolby Digital EX mode is selected.
However, some Dolby Digital EX sources may be detected as
Dolby Digital sources. In this case, the Dolby Digital EX mode
should be selected manually to play these sources.
DTS Neo : 6™ surround
This mode applies conventional 2-channel signals such as
digital PCM or analog stereo signals to the high precision digital
matrix decoder used for DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 to achieve 6.1channel surround playback. DTS Neo : 6 surround includes two
modes for selecting the optimum decoding for the signal source.

information from a series of test tones emitted from speakers at two main listening positions and can
adjust the size, distance, sound level, crossover frequency and frequency response of each speaker
automatically.
For optimum effectiveness, move the microphone from first position to second position within the listening
area surrounded by the speakers while performing the auto setup.
About the first listening position
The first listening position is the point where a listener sits most often or the listening position when only
one person is listening. Measurements start from this point.
• If you want to personalize your speaker setup and channel level setup by making the settings manually,
perform the "When selecting the SPEAKER CONFIGURATION" on page 57, "When selecting the
SPEAKER DISTANCE" on page 59, "When selecting the SPEAKER CROSSOVER" on page 60,
