Front left and right speakers
The front speakers are used for the main source sound plus effect sounds. Place these speakers at an equal distance from the ideal listening position.
The distance of each speaker from each side of the video monitor should be the same.
Center speaker
The center speaker is for the center channel sounds (dialog, vocals, etc.). If for some reason it is not practical to use a center speaker, you can
do without it. Best results, however, are obtained with the full system.
Surround left and right speakers
The surround speakers are used for effect and surround sounds.
Surround back left and right speakers
The surround back speakers supplement the surround speakers and provide more realistic front-to-back transitions.

Using di-pole speakers
FL
It is recommended that you use di-pole speakers for surround left
and right channels for the accurate playback with the THX
surround modes. When you use di-pole speakers, place the
surround and surround back speakers as below. Set the distance
between surround back speakers rather narrow compared with the
conventional speaker layout.

If you use a single surround back speaker, connect the single
surround back speaker to the SUR.BACK/BI-AMP (SINGLE)
speaker terminal and place the speaker behind the listening position.
The surround back left and right channel signals are mixed down
and output at the single surround back speaker when you set
“Surround Back” to “Small x1” or “Large x1” (see page 100).
Surround left and right speakers
Connect the surround speakers to the SURROUND speaker
terminals even if you place the surround speakers behind the
listening position. For the smooth and unbroken sound field behind
the listening position, place the surround left and right speakers
farther back compared with the placement in the 11.2/11.1-channel
speaker layout. The surround back channel signals are directed to
the surround left and right speakers when “Surround Back” is set to
“None” (see page 100).

Using subwoofers
The use of subwoofers with built-in amplifiers, such as the Yamaha Active Servo Processing Subwoofer System, is effective not only for
reinforcing bass frequencies from any or all channels, but also for reproducing the high fidelity sound of the LFE (low-frequency effect)
channel included in digital audio signals. Turn it slightly toward the center of the room to reduce wall reflections.
You can use one or two subwoofers and select various positions of the subwoofers.
■ Configuration 1:
Front left and right
■ Configuration 2:
Front and rear
■ Configuration 3:
A single subwoofer
Set “Configuration” in “Subwoofer” to

■ Connecting external amplifiers
This unit has more than enough power for any home use. However, if you want to use external amplifiers, connect the external amplifiers to
the PRE OUT jacks. Each PRE OUT jack outputs the same channel signals as the corresponding SPEAKERS terminals.
y
Use the external amplifiers in the following cases:
– when you want to add more power to the speaker output
– when you want to use another amplifier for your presence of sounds
– when you want to enjoy the 11.2-channel surround sound in the main zone with activating the other zones (see page 133)
Pre-amplifier mode
If you want use the external amplifiers for the all channels in the main zone, set “PREAMP MODE” to “ON” in the advanced setup (see
page 143). When “PREAMP MODE” is set to “ON”, the power consumption is reduced.

Horizontal
Simple
Complex
The sound field to be generated is evaluated according to whether it
is nearer to one or the other of the following;
Simple: Sounds that fade straight-forwardly, with a light, gentle
impression, depending on the program. This suits almost all contents
relatively well, but provides little brilliance or powerfulness.
Complex: Sounds transform in complex ways as they fade out, with
a rich, brilliant impression, depending on the program.

Use this feature to select the sound field programs (see page 58), the
surround decode mode, the THX Surround mode, or the
“STRAIGHT” mode (see page 64), and adjust the parameters of
each program.
■ Basic configuration of sound field programs
Each sound field program has some parameters defining the
characteristics of the program. To customize the selected sound
field program, adjust “DSP Level” and/or “Dialogue Lift” first, and
then try other parameters.
Adjusting the effect sound level of the sound field
programs (DSP Level)
Sound field programs add effect sounds (DSP effect sounds) to the
original source sound to create sound field in the listening room.
Use the “DSP Level” parameter to adjust the level of the effect
sounds.
Adjust “DSP Level” as follows:
Increase the value of “DSP Level” when
• the effect sound of the selected sound field program is too
weak.
• you cannot recognize any difference between the sound field
programs.
Decrease the value of “DSP Level” when
• the sound is vague.
• you feel that the additional sound effect is excessive.
Control range: –6 dB to +3 dB
Adjusting the vertical dialogue position
(Dialogue Lift)
Use this feature to adjust the vertical position of the dialogues in
movies. The ideal position of the dialogues is at the center of the
video monitor screen.
The ideal
dialogue
position
If the dialogues are heard at the lower position of the video monitor
screen, increase the value of “Dialogue Lift”.

Init. Delay
Sur. Init.Delay
SB. Init. Delay
Initial delay. Presence, surround, and surround back sound field initial delay. Changes the apparent size of the sound field
by adjusting the delay between the direct sound and the first reflection heard by the listener. The smaller the value, the
smaller the sound field seems to the listener.
y
When you adjust the initial delay parameters, we also recommend that you adjust the corresponding room size parameters
likewise. This adjustment is especially effective for the CINEMA DSP programs.

Room size. Presence, surround, and surround back room size. Adjusts the apparent size of the sound field. The larger the
value, the larger the surround sound field becomes. As the sound is repeatedly reflected around a room, the larger the hall
is, the longer the time between the original reflected sound and the subsequent reflections. By controlling the time
between the reflected sounds, you can change the apparent size of the virtual venue. Changing this parameter from one to
two doubles the apparent length of the room.

When you adjust the room size parameters, we also recommend that you adjust the corresponding initial delay parameters
likewise. This adjustment is especially effective for the CINEMA DSP programs.

Liveness. Surround and surround back liveness. Adjusts the reflectivity of the virtual walls in the hall by changing the rate
at which the early reflections decay. The early reflections of a sound source decay much faster in a room with acoustically
absorbent wall surfaces than in one which has highly reflective surfaces. A room with acoustically absorbent surfaces is
referred to as “dead”, while a room with highly reflective surfaces is referred to as “live”. This parameter lets you adjust
the early reflection decay rate and thus the “liveness” of the room.

Operation
• For optimal video performance, THX Ltd. recommends that you set
“Conversion” to “Off” to allow video signals to pass through the system
without processing (e.g., video signals input at the COMPONENT VIDEO
jacks are output at the COMPONENT VIDEO MONITOR OUT jacks
without any processing).
• The converted video signals are only output at the MONITOR OUT jacks.
When recording a video source, you must make the same type of video
connections between each component.
• When composite video or S-video signals from a VCR are converted into
component video signals, the picture quality may suffer depending on your
VCR.
• If “Conversion” is set to “Off”, the “Component I/P”, “HDMI Resolution”,
“HDMI Processing”, “HDMI Aspect”, and “Short Message” features are
deactivated.
• Set “Conversion” to “On” to display the short message.
• This unit does not convert 480 line video signals and 576 line video signals
interchangeably.
• The analog component video signals with 480i (NTSC)/576i (PAL) of
resolution are converted into the S-video or composite video signals and
output at the S VIDEO MONITOR OUT and VIDEO MONITOR OUT
jacks.
• Even when “Conversion” is set to “On”, HDMI digital signals are not
converted to analog video signals.
• Unconventional signals input at the VIDEO or S VIDEO jacks cannot be
converted or may be output abnormally. In such cases, set “Conversion” to
“Off”.
• When non-standard video signals (such as video signals from a video
game console) are input, this unit does not display short messages in the
video monitor even if “Conversion” is set to “On”.
• When the analog component video signals with 480p/576p of resolution
are input at the COMPONENT VIDEO jacks and the video monitor is
connected to the VIDEO MONITOR OUT or S VIDEO MONITOR OUT
jack of this unit, the GUI screen is not displayed in the video monitor.

amplifiers for the multi-zone configuration, plan the total design of your multi-zone system.
When you plan the system, consider the following points:
1. Do you want to use the internal amplifiers of this unit or external amplifiers?
2. How many zones do you want to use this unit for?
3. How many channels do you want to use in the main zone?
4. If you use the internal amplifiers for the other zones, you cannot use some channels in the main zone in some cases.
5. How many speakers do you have?
6. Do you want to use the visual sources other than the main zone?
y
Since there are many possible ways to connect and use this unit in a multi-zone configuration, we recommend that you consult with your nearest authorized
Yamaha dealer or service center for the planning and setup of the multi-zone system that best meet your requirements.
Pre-amplifier mode
If you want use the external amplifiers for the all channels in the main zone, you can use all the speaker terminals of this unit for Zone 2,
Zone 3, and/or Zone 4 (Pre-amplifier mode). Set “PREAMP MODE” to “ON” in the advanced setup (see page 142).
In the following instruction, following system configuration is the example. When you use this system configuration, you can enjoy 7.2channel playback in the main zone and 2-channel playback in the optional two zones. You can also enjoy 5.2-channel playback in the main
zone and 2-channel playback in the optional three zones.

Step2: Connecting the speakers, external amplifiers, and/or other components
You need the following additional equipment to use the multi-room functions of this unit:
• An infrared signal receiver in Zone 2, Zone 3, and/or Zone 4.
• An infrared emitter in the main room. This emitter transmits the infrared signals from the remote control in Zone 2, Zone 3, and/or Zone 4
to the main room (to a CD player or DVD player, for example).
• An amplifier and speakers for Zone 2, Zone 3, and/or Zone 4.
• A video monitor for the second room.
■ Using internal amplifier of this unit
Important safety notice
The speaker terminals of this Receiver should not be connected to a Passive Loudspeaker Selector Box or more than one loudspeaker per
channel.
Connection to a Passive Loudspeaker Selector Box or multiple speakers per channel could create an abnormally low impedance load
resulting in amplifier damage. See this owner’s manual for correct usage.
Compliance with minimum speaker impedance information for all channels must be maintained at all times. This information is found on
the back panel of your Receiver.
To make the system of the example, connect the speakers in the
main zone and other zones as follows:

■ Audio and video synchronization
(lip sync)
Lip sync, an abbreviation for lip synchronization, is a technical term
that involves both a problem and a capability of maintaining audio
and video signals synchronized during post-production and
transmission. Whereas the audio and video latency requires
complex end-user adjustments, HDMI version 1.3 incorporates an
automatic audio and video syncing capability that allows devices to
perform this synchronization automatically and accurately without
user interaction.
■ Bi-amplification connection
A bi-amplification connection uses two amplifiers for a speaker.
One amplifier is connected to the woofer section of a loudspeaker
while the other is connected to the combined mid and tweeter
section. With this arrangement each amplifier operates over a
restricted frequency range. This restricted range presents each
amplifier with a much simpler job and each amplifier is less likely
to influence the sound in some way. The internal crossover of the
speaker consists of a LPF (low pass filter) and a HPF (high pass
filter). As its name implies, the LPF passes frequencies below a
cutoff and rejects frequencies above the cutoff frequency. Likewise,
the HPF passes frequencies above its cutoff.
■ Component video signal
With the component video signal system, the video signal is
separated into the Y signal for the luminance and the PB and PR
signals for the chrominance. Color can be reproduced more
faithfully with this system because each of these signals is
independent. The component signal is also called the “color
difference signal” because the luminance signal is subtracted from
the color signal. A monitor with component input jacks is required
in order to output component signals.
■ Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is a digital surround sound system that gives you
completely independent multi-channel audio. With 3 front channels
(front L/R and center), and 2 surround stereo channels, Dolby
Digital provides 5 full-range audio channels. With an additional
channel especially for bass effects, called LFE (Low Frequency
Effect), the system has a total of 5.1-channels (LFE is counted as
0.1 channel). By using 2-channel stereo for the surround speakers,
more accurate moving sound effects and surround sound
environment are possible than with Dolby Surround. The wide
dynamic range from maximum to minimum volume reproduced by
the 5 full-range channels and the precise sound orientation
generated using digital sound processing provide listeners with
unprecedented excitement and realism. With this unit, any sound
environment from monaural up to a 5.1-channel configuration can
be freely selected for your enjoyment.
■ Dolby Digital EX
Dolby Digital EX creates 6 full-bandwidth output channels from
5.1-channel sources. This is done using a matrix decoder that
derives 3 surround channels from the 2 in the original recording. For
the best results, Dolby Digital EX should be used with movie sound
tracks recorded with Dolby Digital Surround EX. With this
additional channel, you can experience more dynamic and realistic
moving sound especially with scenes with “fly-over” and “flyaround” effects.
■ Dolby Digital Plus
■ Deep Color
■ Dolby Pro Logic II
■ Composite video signal
Deep Color refers to the use of various color depths in displays, up
from the 24-bit depths in previous versions of the HDMI
specification. This extra bit depth allows HDTVs and other displays
go from millions of colors to billions of colors and eliminate onscreen color banding for smooth tonal transitions and subtle
gradations between colors. The increased contrast ratio can
represent many times more shades of gray between black and white.
Also Deep Color increases the number of available colors within the
boundaries defined by the RGB or YCbCr color space.
Dolby Pro Logic II is an improved technique used to decode vast
numbers of existing Dolby Surround sources. This new technology
enables a discrete 5-channel playback with 2 front left and right
channels, 1 center channel, and 2 surround left and right channels
instead of only 1 surround channel for conventional Pro Logic
technology. There are three modes available: “Music mode” for
music sources, “Movie mode” for movie sources and “Game mode”
for game sources.
■ Dolby Pro Logic IIx
Dolby Pro Logic IIx is a new technology enabling discrete multichannel playback from 2-channel or multi-channel sources. There
are three modes available: “Music mode” for music sources,
“Movie mode” for movie sources (for 2-channel sources only) and
“Game mode” for game sources.

■ Dolby Surround
■ DTS Express
Dolby Surround uses a 4-channel analog recording system to
reproduce realistic and dynamic sound effects: 2 front left and right
channels (stereo), a center channel for dialog (monaural), and a
surround channel for special sound effects (monaural). The
surround channel reproduces sound within a narrow frequency
range. Dolby Surround is widely used with nearly all video tapes
and laser discs, and in many TV and cable broadcasts as well. The
Dolby Pro Logic decoder built into this unit employs a digital signal
processing system that automatically stabilizes the volume on each
channel to enhance moving sound effects and directionality.
DTS Express is an advanced audio technology for the optional
feature on Blu-ray Disc or HD DVD, which offers high-quality, low
bit rate audio optimized for network streaming, and Internet
applications. DTS Express is used for the Secondary Audio feature
of Blu-ray Disc or the Sub Audio feature of HD DVD. These
features deliver audio commentaries (for example, the additional
commentaries made by the director of a film) on demand by the
users via the Internet, etc. DTS Express signals are mixed down
with the main audio stream on the player component, and the
component sends the mixed audio stream to the AV receivers/
amplifiers via digital coaxial, digital optical, or analog connections.
■ Dolby TrueHD
Dolby TrueHD is an advanced lossless audio technology developed
for high-definition disc-based media including HD DVD and Bluray Disc. Selected as a mandatory audio standard for HD DVD and
as an optional audio standard for Blu-ray Disc, this technology
delivers sound that is bit-for-bit identical to the studio master,
offering a high-definition home theater experience. Supporting
bitrates up to 18.0 Mbps, Dolby TrueHD can carry up to 8 discrete
channels of 24-bit/96 kHz audio simultaneously. Supported by
HDMI version 1.3 and designed for the optical disc players and AV
receivers/amplifiers of the future, Dolby TrueHD also remains fully
compatible with the existing multichannel audio systems and retains
the metadata capability of Dolby Digital, allowing dialog
normalization and dynamic range control.
■ DSD
Direct Stream Digital (DSD) technology stores audio signals on
digital storage media, such as Super Audio CDs. Using DSD,
signals are stored as single bit values at a high-frequency sampling
rate of 2.8224 MHz, while noise shaping and oversampling are used
to reduce distortion, a common occurrence with very high
quantization of audio signals. Due to the high sampling rate, better
audio quality can be achieved than that offered by the PCM format
used for normal audio CDs.
■ DTS 96/24
DTS 96/24 offers an unprecedented level of audio quality for multichannel sound on DVD video, and is fully backward-compatible
with all DTS decoders. “96” refers to a 96 kHz sampling rate
compared to the typical 48 kHz sampling rate. “24” refers to 24-bit
word length.
DTS 96/24 offers sound quality transparent to the original 96/24
master, and 96/24 5.1-channel sound with full-quality full-motion
video for music programs and motion picture soundtracks on DVD
video.
■ DTS Digital Surround
DTS digital surround was developed to replace the analog
soundtracks of movies with a 6.1-channel digital sound track, and is
now rapidly gaining popularity in movie theaters around the world.
DTS, Inc. has developed a home theater system so that you can
enjoy the depth of sound and natural spatial representation of DTS
digital surround in your home. This system produces practically
distortion-free 6-channel sound (technically, front left and right,
center, surround left and right, and LFE 0.1 (subwoofer) channels
for a total of 5.1 channels). This unit incorporates a DTS-ES
decoder that enables 6.1-channel reproduction by adding the
surround back channel to the existing 5.1-channel format.
156 En
■ DTS-HD Master Audio
DTS-HD Master Audio is an advanced lossless audio technology
developed for high-definition disc-based media including HD DVD
and Blu-ray Disc. Selected as a mandatory audio standard for both
HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc, this technology delivers sound that is
bit-for-bit identical to the studio master, offering a high-definition
home theater experience. Supporting bitrates up to 18.0 Mbps for
HD DVD and up to 24.5 Mbps for Blu-ray Disc, DTS-HD Master
Audio can carry up to 7.1 discrete channels of 24-bit/96 kHz audio
simultaneously. Supported by HDMI version 1.3 and designed for
the optical disc players and AV receivers/amplifiers of the future,
DTS-HD Master Audio also remains fully compatible with the
existing multichannel audio systems that incorporate DTS Digital
Surround.
■ DTS-HD High Resolution Audio
DTS-HD High Resolution Audio is an high resolution audio
technology developed for high-definition disc-based media
including HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc. Selected as an optional audio
standard for both HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc, this technology
delivers sound that is virtually indistinguishable from the original,
offering a high-definition home theater experience. Supporting
bitrates up to 3.0 Mbps for HD DVD and 6.0 Mbps for Blu-ray
Disc, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio can carry up to 7.1 discrete
channels of 24-bit/96 kHz audio simultaneously. Supported by
HDMI version 1.3 and designed for the optical disc players and AV
receivers/amplifiers of the future, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio
also remains fully compatible with the existing multichannel audio
systems that incorporate DTS Digital Surround.
■ HDMI
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the first industrysupported, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface.
Providing an interface between any source (such as a set-top box or
AV receiver) and an audio/video monitor (such as a digital
television), HDMI supports standard, enhanced or high-definition
video as well as multi-channel digital audio using a single cable.
HDMI transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports 8-channel
digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future
enhancements and requirements.
When used in combination with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital
Content Protection), HDMI provides a secure audio/video interface
that meets the security requirements of content providers and
system operators. For further information on HDMI, visit the HDMI
website at “http://www.hdmi.org/”.
Glossary
■ LFE 0.1 channel
This channel reproduces low-frequency signals. The frequency
range of this channel is from 20 Hz to 120 Hz. This channel is
counted as 0.1 because it only enforces a low-frequency range
compared to the full-range reproduced by the other 5/6 channels in
Dolby Digital or DTS 5.1/6.1-channel systems.
■ MP3
One of the audio compression methods used by MPEG. It employs
the irreversible compression method, which achieves a high
compression rate by thinning out the data of hardly audible part to
the human ears. It is said to be capable of compressing the data
quantity by about 1/11 (128 kbps) while maintaining a similar audio
quality to music CD.
■ MPEG-4 AAC
An MPEG-4 audio standard. As it allows compression of data at a
bit rate lower than that of MPEG-2 AAC, it is used among others for
mobile telephones, portable audio players and other low-capacity
devices requiring high sound quality.
In addition to the above types of devices, MPEG-4 AAC is also
used to distribute contents on the Internet, and as such is supported
by computers, media servers and many other devices.
■ Neo:6
Neo:6 decodes the conventional 2-channel sources for 6- channel
playback by the specific decoder. It enables playback with the fullrange channels with higher separation just like digital discrete
signal playback. There are two modes available: “Music mode” for
music sources and “Cinema mode” for movie sources.
■ Neural-THX Surround
■ PCM (Linear PCM)
Linear PCM is a signal format under which an analog audio signal
is digitized, recorded and transmitted without using any
compression. This is used as a method of recording CDs and DVD
audio. The PCM system uses a technique for sampling the size of
the analog signal per very small unit of time. Standing for “Pulse
Code Modulation”, the analog signal is encoded as pulses and then
modulated for recording.
When digitizing an analog audio signal, the number of times the
signal is sampled per second is called the sampling frequency, while
the degree of fineness when converting the sound level into a
numeric value is called the number of quantized bits. The range of
rates that can be played back is determined based on the sampling
rate, while the dynamic range representing the sound level
difference is determined by the number of quantized bits. In
principle, the higher the sampling frequency, the wider the range of
frequencies that can be played back, and the higher the number of
quantized bits, the more finely the sound level can be reproduced.
■ SRS CS II (SRS Circle Surround II)
SRS CS II (SRS Circle Surround II) is a high-performance
6.1 channel matrix surround sound decoding system. It is the nextgeneration of the original SRS Circle Surround technology,
incorporating powerful industry-first features including the dialog
clarity enhancement technology and added cinema-like bass to the
front channels and subwoofer.
■ S-video signal
With the S-video signal system, the video signal normally
transmitted using a pin cable is separated and transmitted as the Y
signal for the luminance and the C signal for the chrominance
through the S-video cable. Using the
S VIDEO jack eliminates video signal transmission loss and allows
recording and playback of even more beautiful images.
■ WAV
Windows standard audio file format, which defines the method of
recording the digital data obtained by converting audio signals. It
does not specify the compression (coding) method so a desired
compression method can be used with it. By default, it is
compatible with the PCM method (no compression) and some
compression methods including the ADPCM method.
■ WMA
An audio compression method developed by Microsoft
Corporation. It employs the irreversible compression method,
which achieves a high compression rate by thinning out the data of
hardly audible part to the human ears. It is said to be capable of
compressing the data quantity by about 1/22 (64 kbps) while
maintaining a similar audio quality to music CD.
■ xvYCC
A color space standard supported by HDMI version 1.3. It is a more
extensive color space than sRGB, and allows the expression of
colors that could not be expressed before. While remaining
compatible with the color gamut of sRGB standards, xvYCC
expands the color space and can thus produce more vivid, natural
images. It is particularly effective for still pictures and computer
graphics.

THX information
■ THX Cinema processing
THX is an exclusive set of standards and technologies established
by the world-renowned film production company, Lucasfilm Ltd.
THX grew from George Lucas’ personal desire to make your
experience of the film soundtrack, in both movie theatres and in
your home theatre, as faithful as possible to what the director
intended. Movie soundtracks are mixed in special movie theatres
called dubbing stages and are designed to be played back in movie
theatres with similar equipment and conditions. This same
soundtrack is then transferred directly onto Laserdisc, VHS tape,
DVD, etc., and is not changed for playback in a small home theatre
environment. THX engineers developed patented technologies to
accurately translate the sound from the movie theatre environment
into the home, correcting the tonal and spatial errors that occur. On
this product, when “THX” appears in the front panel display, THX
features are automatically added in Cinema modes (e.g. THX
Cinema, THX Surround EX).
THX Cinema mode
In this mode, THX Loudness Plus is designed around the industrystandard reference mixing level as well as adding other proprietary
THX technologies such as Adaptive Decorrelation, Re-EQ, and
Timbre Matching to recreate the theatrical experience at home.
■ THX Music mode
THX Music modes provide the appropriate THX processing to
enhance music listening. THX Music applies a dedicated music
profile of THX Loudness Plus, designed around the varying mix
levels in music sources which are often very different than film or
television sources. Additionally, THX Music applies Timbre
Matching to the surround speaker channels.
■ THX Games mode
THX Games mode gives the benefit of THX Loudness Plus, as well
as other THX proprietary features which provide the gamer with a
more accurate listening experience at lower levels, while
maintaining all of the directional cues critical to gameplay.
■ THX Surround EX
■ THX Ultra2
Before any home theatre component can be THX Ultra2 certified, it
must incorporate all the features above and also pass a rigorous
series of quality and performance tests. Only then can a product
feature the THX Ultra logo, which is your guarantee that the Home
Theatre products you purchase will give you superb performance
for many years to come. THX Ultra2 requirements cover every
aspect of the product including pre-amplifier performance and
operation, and hundreds of other parameters in both the digital and
analog domain.

Dolby Digital Surround EX is a joint development of Dolby
Laboratories and the THX Ltd.
In a movie theater, film soundtracks that have been encoded with
Dolby Digital Surround EX technology are able to reproduce an
extra channel which has been added during the mixing of the
program. This channel, called Surround Back, places sounds behind
the listener in addition to the currently available front left, front
center, front right, surround right, surround left and subwoofer
channels. This additional channel provides the opportunity for more
detailed imaging behind the listener and brings more depth,
spacious ambience and sound localization than ever before.
Movies that were created using the Dolby Digital Surround EX
technology, when released into the home consumer market may
exhibit wording to that effect on the packaging. A list of movies
created using this technology can be found on the Dolby web site at
www.dolby.com.
Only receiver and controller products bearing the THX Surround
EX logo, when in the THX Surround EX mode, faithfully reproduce
this new technology in the home.
This product may also engage the “THX Surround EX” mode
during the playback of 5.1 channel material that is not Dolby Digital
Surround EX encoded. In such case the information delivered to the
Surround Back channel will be program dependent and may or may
not be very pleasing depending on the particular soundtrack and the
tastes of the individual listener.
Glossary
■ THX Ultra2 Cinema mode
■ Adaptive Decorrelation
THX Ultra2 Cinema mode plays 5.1 movies using all 8 speakers
giving you the best possible movie watching experience. In this
mode, ASA processing blends the side surround speakers and back
surround speakers providing the optimal mix of ambient and
directional surround sounds. This mode permits the playback of a
non Surround EX/ES encoded 5.1 movie to be played back over a
7.1 system. DTS-ES (Matrix and 6.1 Discrete) and Dolby Digital
Surround EX encoded soundtracks will be automatically detected, if
the appropriate flag has been encoded. Some Dolby Digital
Surround EX soundtracks are missing the digital flag that allows
automatic switching. If you know that the movie that you are
watching is encoded in Surround EX, you can manually select the
THX Surround EX playback mode, otherwise THX Ultra2 Cinema
mode will apply ASA processing to provide optimum replay.
In a movie theatre, a large number of surround speakers help create
an enveloping surround sound experience, but in a home theatre
there are usually only two speakers. This can make the surround
speakers sound like headphones that lack spaciousness and
envelopment. The surround sounds will also collapse into the
closest speaker as you move away from the middle seating position.
Adaptive Decorrelation slightly changes one surround channel's
time and phase relationship with respect to the other surround
channel. This expands the listening position and creates – with only
two speakers – the same spacious surround experience as in a movie
theatre.
■ THX Ultra2 Music mode
For the playback of multi-channel music the THX Ultra2 Music
mode should be selected. In this mode THX ASA processing is
applied to the surround channels of all 5.1 encoded music sources
such as DTS, Dolby Digital and DVD-Audio to provide a wide
stable rear soundstage.
■ THX Ultra2 Games mode
For the playback of stereo and multi-channel game audio the THX
Ultra2 Games mode should be selected. In this mode THX ASA
processing is applied to the surround channels of all 5.1 and 2.0
encoded game sources such as analog, PCM, DTS and Dolby
Digital. This accurately places all game audio surround information,
providing a full 360 degree playback environment. THX Ultra2
Games mode is unique as it gives you a smooth transition of audio
in all points of the surround field.
■ THX Loudness Plus
■ Re-Equalization
The tonal balance of a film soundtrack will be excessively bright
and harsh when played back over audio equipment in the home
because film soundtracks were designed to be played back in large
movie theatres using very different professional equipment. ReEqualization restores the correct tonal balance for watching a movie
soundtrack in a small home environment.
The human ear changes our perception of a sound depending on the
direction from which the sound is coming. In a movie theatre, there
is an array of surround speakers so that the surround information is
all around you. In a home theatre, you use only two speakers located
to the side of your head. The Timbre Matching feature filters the
information going to the surround speakers so that they more
closely match the tonal characteristics of the sound coming from the
front speakers. This ensures seamless panning between the front
and surround speakers.
■ BGC (Boundary Gain Compensation)
If your chosen listening room layout (for practical or aesthetic
reasons) results in the most of the listeners being close to the rear
wall, the resulting bass level can be sufficiently reinforced by the
boundary that the overall sound quality becomes “boomy”. THX
Ultra2 receivers and controllers contain the BGC (Boundary Gain
Compensation) feature to provide an improved bass balance.
“Bndry Gain Comp” can be selected by setting “THX Ultra2
SWFR” to “Yes” in “THX Set” of “Manual Setup”.
■ ASA (Advanced Speaker Array)
ASA is a proprietary THX technology which processes the sound
fed to 2 side and 2 back surround speakers to provide the optimal
surround sound experience. When you set up your home theater
system using all eight speaker outputs (Left, Center, Right,
Surround Right, Surround Back Right, Surround Back Left,
Surround Left and Subwoofer), be sure to go to the “THX Set”
screen and choose the setting that most closely corresponds to the
speaker spacing, which will re-optimize the surround sound-field.
ASA is used in three modes; THX Ultra2 Cinema, THX Ultra2
Music and THX Ultra2 Games.
■ Dialogue normalization
Dialogue Normalization (Dial Norm) is a feature of Dolby Digital,
which is used to keep the programs at the same average listening
level so the user does not have to change the volume control
between Dolby Digital programs.
When playing back software which has been encoded in Dolby
Digital, sometimes you may see a brief message in the front panel
display which will read “Dial Norm X dB” (X being a numeric
value). The display is showing how the program level relates with
THX calibration level. If you want to play the program at calibrated
theatrical levels, you may wish to adjust the volume. For example, if
you see the following message: “Dial Norm + 4 dB” in the front
panel display, to keep the overall output level at THX calibrated
loudness, just turn down the volume control by 4 dB. However,
unlike a movie theater where the playback loudness is preset, you
can choose your preferred volume setting for best enjoyment.
159 En
Additional
Information
THX Loudness Plus is a new volume control technology featured in
THX Ultra2 Plus™ and THX Select2 Plus™ Certified receivers.
With THX Loudness Plus, home theater audiences can now
experience the rich details in a surround mix at any volume level. A
consequence of turning the volume below Reference Level is that
certain sound elements can be lost or perceived differently by the
listener. THX Loudness Plus compensates for the tonal and spatial
shifts that occur when the volume is reduced by intelligently
adjusting ambient surround channel levels and frequency response.
This enables users to experience the true impact of soundtracks
regardless of the volume setting. THX Loudness Plus is
automatically applied when listening in any THX listening mode.
The new THX Cinema, THX Music, and THX Games modes are
tailored to apply the proper THX Loudness Plus settings for each
type of content.
■ Timbre Matching
Sound field program information
Sound field program information
■ Elements of a sound field
■ CINEMA DSP HD³
What really creates the rich, full tones of a live instrument are the
multiple reflections from the walls of the room. In addition to
making the sound live, these reflections enable us to tell where the
player is situated as well as the size and shape of the room in which
we are sitting.
There are two distinct types of sound reflections that combine to
make up the sound field in addition to the direct sound coming
straight to our ears from the player’s instrument.
The actually measured sound field data contain the information of
the height of the sound images. CINEMA DSP HD³ feature
achieves the reproduction of the accurate height of the sound
images so that it creates the accurate and intensive stereoscopic
sound fields in a listening room.
Early reflections
Reflected sounds reach our ears extremely rapidly (50 ms to 100 ms
after the direct sound), after reflecting from one surface only (for
example, from a wall or the ceiling). Early reflections actually add
clarity to the direct sound.
Reverberations
These are caused by reflections from more than one surface (for
example, from the walls, and the ceiling) so numerous that they
merge together to form a continuous sonic afterglow. They are nondirectional and lessen the clarity of the direct sound.
Direct sound, early reflections and subsequent reverberations taken
together help us to determine the subjective size and shape of the
room, and it is this information that the digital sound field processor
reproduces in order to create sound fields.
If you could create the appropriate early reflections and subsequent
reverberations in your listening room, you would be able to create
your own listening environment. The acoustics in your room could
be changed to those of a concert hall, a dance floor, or a room with
virtually any size at all. This ability to create sound fields at will is
exactly what Yamaha has done with the digital sound field
processor.
■ CINEMA DSP
Since the Dolby Surround and DTS systems were originally
designed for use in movie theaters, their effect is best felt in a
theater having many speakers designed for acoustic effects. Since
home conditions, such as room size, wall material, number of
speakers, and so on, can differ so widely, it is inevitable that there
are differences in the sound heard. Based on a wealth of actually
measured data, Yamaha CINEMA DSP provides the audiovisual
experience of a movie theater in the listening room of your own
home by using the Yamaha original sound field technology
combined with various digital audio systems.
160 En
■ SILENT CINEMA
Yamaha has developed a natural, realistic sound effect DSP
algorithm for headphones. Parameters for headphones have been set
for each sound field so that accurate representations of all the sound
field programs can be enjoyed on headphones.
■ Virtual CINEMA DSP
Yamaha has developed a Virtual CINEMA DSP algorithm that
allows you to enjoy DSP sound field surround effects even without
any surround speakers by using virtual surround speakers. It is even
possible to enjoy Virtual CINEMA DSP using a minimal twospeaker system that does not include a center speaker.
■ Compressed Music Enhancer
The Compressed Music Enhancer feature of this unit enhances your
listening experience by regenerating the missing harmonics in a
compression artifact. As a result, flattened complexity due to the
loss of high-frequency fidelity as well as lack of bass due to the loss
of low-frequency bass is compensated, providing improved
performance of the overall sound system.
Sound field program information
■ Sound output in each sound field program
Sound output from each speaker depends on the type of audio signals being input. Refer to the diagrams in the table below to understand the
speaker layout for each sound field program.
Note
Be advised that there may be no or not enough sound output from speakers depending on the type of input source being played back. Furthermore, there may
be some channels that can only be used partially when they are adjusted to specific aspects of movies, such as special sound effects, etc.

Parametric equalizer information
Parametric equalizer information
This unit employs Yamaha Parametric Room Acoustic Optimizer
(YPAO) technology, together with the Parametric EQ settings (see
page 104), to optimize the frequency characteristics of its
parametric equalizer to match your listening environment. YPAO
uses a combination of the following three parameters (Frequency,
Gain and Q factor) to provide highly precise adjustment of the
frequency characteristics.
■ Frequency
This parameter is adjustable in one-third octave increments between
32 Hz and 16 kHz.
YPAO adjusts frequency characteristics to suit your listening
requirements using a combination of the above three parameters
(Frequency, Gain and Q factor) for each equalizer band in this unit’s
parametric equalizer. This unit has 7 equalizer bands for each
channel.
The use of multiple equalizer bands enables more precise
adjustments of frequency characteristics (as in Figure 2). This is not
possible using only a single equalizer band (as in Figure 1).

■ Standing wave
■ Q factor
The width of the specified frequency band is referred to as the Q
factor. This parameter is adjustable between the values 0.5 and 10.
164 En
A wave generated when two waves of the same length, frequency
and speed but traveling in opposite directions overlap. Standing
waves appear to be stationary and simply oscillating in a fixed
position without progressing.
Under certain conditions, the sound leaving a speaker and the sound
reflecting off a wall, etc., in a room resonate. When this happens, it
has a major effect on the frequency response in the room, and
depending on the listening position sounds of specific frequencies
may sound loud or inversely may be hard to hear. As a result, this
hampers accurate reproduction of the sound source.
This unit is equipped with a parametric equalizer to reduce the
effect of standing waves. The equalizer’s settings can be optimized
through automatic measurements. Even more accurate settings can
be made by taking measurements at other positions.
