Introduction Thank you for purchasing this Cambridge Audio Azur range AV Receiver. We hope that you enjoy many years of pleasure from it. The new 540R
v3 is designed for excellent multi-channel surroundsound performance without compromising on music reproduction. As such the six fully discrete audiophile
grade amplifiers are kept as separate as possible from the processing and input stages. A large power supply with low flux toroidal transformer and careful
design of the audio stages ensure that the 540R v3 can reproduce the dynamics and scale required for modern movie soundtracks whilst also being able to
reproduce a genuinely musical performance with either stereo or multichannel music sources.
For the new v3 model we have made several enhancements. We have added 2 in 1 out HDMI switching, tweaked the amplifier designs for lower distortion,
added a Stereo + Sub mode (digitally created sub) and post-processing modes with PLII to allow creation of a 6.1 output from 2.0/5.1 DD or DTS material.
All video inputs are now fully freely assignable to any source, making the unit very flexible despite its relatively small size and socket count. A new Advanced
Bass Management feature allows separate crossovers and trims for PLII/Neo, DD/DTS and Stereo + Sub modes, plus a Bass Augment function allows the
front speakers to remain Large whilst also sending front left and right bass to the subwoofer. A full RS232 control protocol has been implemented and IR
Emitter In added making it easy to integrate the 540R v3 into a Custom Install situation. As usual all this proprietary engineering is housed within our
acoustically damped chassis with an Azur navigator remote control supplied Your 540R v3 can only be as good as the system it is connected to. Please do not
compromise on your partnering equipment. Naturally we particularly recommend equipment from the Cambridge Audio Azur range which includes CD and
DVD players which have been designed to the same exacting standards as this product. Your dealer can also supply excellent quality Cambridge Audio
interconnects to ensure your system realises its full potential. Thank you for taking the time to read this manual, we do recommend you keep it for future
reference. Matthew Bramble, Cambridge Audio Technical Director and the AV Receiver design team Before connecting The process of setting up the 540R v3
is first to make all the connections to your speakers and source equipment and then set the unit up via its On-Screen Display (OSD), as there are various
settings and adjustments that need to be made before the 540R v3 can be used. However before you actually decide which connections to make or perform any
adjustments it is strongly advised that you read through the `540R v3 setup' section of this manual first, starting on page 12.
A lot of explanation is included that will help you to choose the right connection types for both your sources and TV. 2 azur Limited warranty Cambridge

540R v3 ENGLISH Safety precautions Checking the Power Supply Rating For your own safety please read the following instructions carefully before
attempting to connect this unit to the mains. Check that the rear of your unit indicates the correct supply voltage. If your mains supply voltage is different,
consult your dealer.

AUDIO AZUR 540R user guide
http://yourpdfguides.com/dref/2465893
This unit is designed to operate only on the supply voltage and type that is indicated on the rear panel of the unit. Connecting to other power sources may
damage the unit. This equipment must be switched off when not in use and must not be used unless correctly earthed. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do
not remove the unit's cover (or back). There are no user serviceable parts inside. Refer servicing to qualified service personnel. If the power cord is fitted with
a moulded mains plug the unit must not be used if the plastic fuse carrier is not in place.
Should you lose the fuse carrier the correct part must be reordered from your Cambridge Audio dealer. The symbol on this product indicates that it is of
CLASS II (double insulated) construction. The lightning flash with the arrowhead symbol within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the
presence of un-insulated `dangerous voltage' within the product's enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to
persons. The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of important operating and maintenance instructions
in the service literature relevant to this appliance. The crossed-out wheeled bin is the European Union symbol for indicating separate collection for electrical
and electronic equipment. This product contains electrical and electronic equipment which should be reused, recycled or recovered and should not be
disposed of with unsorted regular waste. Please return the unit or contact the authorised dealer from whom you purchased this product for more information.
Approvals This product complies with European Low Voltage (73/23/EEC) and Electromagnetic Compatibility rces such as radiators, heat registers, stoves,
or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that produce heat. Do not stack multiple units on top of each other. Do not place in an enclosed area such as a
bookcase or in a cabinet without sufficient ventilation.
Do not obstruct the rear heat tunnel ventilation grille. Ensure that small objects do not fall through any ventilation grille. If this happens, switch off
immediately, disconnect from the mains supply and contact your dealer for advice. Lightning For added protection during a thunderstorm, or when it is left
unattended and unused for long period of time, unplug the unit from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent damage to
the unit from lightning and power-line surges.
Outdoor antenna grounding If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the product, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded so as to
provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NIPA No. 70-1984 (section 54
of Canadian Electrical Code, Part 1) provides information with respect to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in
wire to an antenna-discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements
for the grounding electrode. Positioning Choose the installation location carefully. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight or close to a source of heat.
Also avoid locations subject to vibration and excessive dust, cold or moisture. Do not place the unit on an unstable surface or shelf. The unit may fall, causing
serious injury to a child or adult as well as serious damage to the product. Do not place a CD player or other equipment on top of the unit. This unit must be
installed on a sturdy, level surface. Do not place in a sealed area such as a bookcase or in a cabinet. Any space open at the back (such as a dedicated
equipment rack) is fine however. When a cart is used, use caution when moving the cart to avoid injury from tip-over. WARNING - To reduce the risk of fire
or electric shock, do not expose this unit to rain or moisture. This unit must not be used 230V AC ~ 50Hz Composite Speaker Impedance 4-8 Ohms CD

before connecting the speakers. Check the impedance of your speakers. Speakers with an impedance of between 4 and 8 ohms (each) are recommended. The
coloured speaker terminals are positive (+) and the black speaker terminals are negative (-). Make sure correct polarity is maintained at each speaker
connector or the sound can become weak and "phasey" with little bass.
Prepare the speaker cords for connection by stripping off approximately 10mm (3/8") or less (no more than 10mm, as this could cause a shortcircuit) of the
outer insulation. Twist the wire tightly together so there are no loose ends. Unscrew the speaker terminal knob, insert the speaker cable, tighten the knob and

HDMI (High-Definition Multi-Media Interface) is an all digital connection that can carry both audio and video in one cable. Direct digital transfer of video
and support for various types of High Definition video content make this the best connection type for picture quality. The two HDMI inputs can be assigned to
any one of the DVD, Video 1, Video 2, CD/Aux, Tape/MD and 6.1 Direct inputs (see the `Assigning HDMI sources' section of this manual for more
information). The 540R v3 routes the HDMI outputs of DVD players, set-top boxes etc to the TV/Monitor without any internal processing.
Consult both the source and TV's manuals to find out how to set the best modes for best picture quality. As the 540R v3 only routes/switches HDMI it is not
involved in these settings itself. TV/Monitor with HDMI input The sources will also normally supply audio to the TV/Monitor over the HDMI connection, this
will be separate from the audio that the 540R v3 decodes. In order for the 540R v3 itself to receive audio (Including surroundsound) from HDMI (or DVI)
sources a Co-axial (SPDIF) or Optical (Toslink) a digital audio connection must be made from each source to the 540R v3. DVI switching can be supported
simply by using DVI to HDMI adaptors as these two connection types are compatible. When using DVI only video will be passed to the TV/Monitor. Again a
Co-axial (SPDIF) or Optical (Toslink) digital audio connection must be made from each source to the 540R v3 for it to be able to receive audio and decode
surround sound etc. Tuner S-Video Manufactured in an ISO9002 approved facility TV/Mon Out Video In In 1 (Assignable) In 2 CD Digital Optical In Video 1

3 Surround Left and Right speakers For ambient and multi-channel sound. Floorstanding speakers should be angled towards the listening position.
Bookshelf/standmount speakers should be wall mounted or used with dedicated speaker stands, positioned at or above ear height. Now move down and by
highlighting each speaker in turn and using the Left and Right arrows select from `Large', `Small' or `None' for each speaker. `Large' or `Small' are used to
describe each speaker in terms of bass response, they do not necessarily reflect the actual physical size of the speaker. Large = Speakers with an extended low
frequency response of approximately 20-40Hz to 16-20kHz (floorstanders or high quality larger stand-mounted speakers). Small = Speakers with a less
extended low frequency response of approximately 80-100Hz to 16-20kHz (small stand-mounted, bookshelf or satellite speakers). 12 azur 2. Speaker delay
Setting each speaker allows the 540R v3 to perform what is called Bass Management and to direct low frequency bass from music and the Low Frequency
Effects channel of surround sound material to those speakers best able to reproduce it. If you do not wish to use any of the speakers change it's setting to
`None'.
The Subwoofer output can also be set to `Yes' or `No'. If no sub is being used make sure this setting is set to `No' to allow the 540R v3 to redirect the bass
information in this channel to other speakers. Note: The 540R v3 will force some speakers to certain settings in some of the following circumstances! The
Front Left and Right speakers may be `Large' or `Small' but never `None' as they are always required for any type of music/movie reproduction. Bass must
always be reproduced by either the Front Left and Right or Subwoofer channel (or both). The 540R v3 will thus not allow a combination of `Small' front
speakers and no subwoofer.
If the Front Left and Right cannot reproduce low frequency bass a Subwoofer must be used i.e. If the Front Left and Right are set as `Small' the Sub must be
Set to `Yes'. Also, setting the Front Left and Right as `Small' will always set the other speakers as `Small' (and the Sub to `Yes'). This is because LFE/ bass
information should not be redirected to the surround channels.
To store the setting simply come back out of the OSD (pressing the OSD button always moves back one menu item, and then exits and stores from the main
menu screen). 4 3 540R v3 ENGLISH Because the speakers in a surround sound system are usually different distances from the listener the 540R v3
incorporates the ability to apply a variable digital delay to each of the channels so that the sound from each arrives at the same time at the listening position
for best surroundsound effect. Each pair of speakers (i.e. Front Left and Right or Surround Left and Right) are subject to the same delay and so must be
situated equidistant from the listener. To set the delay times simply measure the distances from the listening position to each speaker as shown in the following
diagram: 1 2 1 = Front Left & Right speakers 2 = Centre speaker 3 = Surround Left & Right speakers 4 = Surround Back speaker (when used) Note: No
delay setting for the subwoofer is necessary. @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@The 540R v3 incorporates a Test Signal Generator (broadband white noise) to facilitate this. Set the unit to a normal listening level or half maximum volume approximately. Press the OSD button on the remote
control then select the `Level Calibration' menu. Now turn on the test signal by highlighting this item and pressing the Left or Right arrows: Level Calibration
4.
Source setup The next step is to select each source input in turn on the 540R v3 and tell the unit the type of audio connection you want to use for that source
(Analog or Digital input). The 540R v3 remembers this setting individually for every source input and automatically recalls it as and when you change source
input. Select the `Input Setup' menu. Highlight each source in turn and select either analog or digital input types (use the Left and Right arrows): Input Setup

This will then cycle between analog or digital input types for the currently selected source; as usual they will then be remembered the next time you return to
that source. : [OSD] A "rushing" or "hissy" sound should be heard, initially through the Front Left Speaker.
You can now move up and down the channels using Volume Up/Down on the remote. Each time a new channel is selected the test signal will be heard to move
to that channel. Compare the loudness of all channels as heard at the listening position. Now adjust the channels so they all sound the same (in terms of
loudness only, channels of different frequency responses can sound different in terms of the "tone" of the sound i.e.
more or less hissy). Pick the channel that sounds most different and select it to listen to the test signal. Now adjust the relative level in dB (using Arrow
left/right on the remote) and continue comparing it to other channels until it is of equal loudness. The level can be adjusted up to + or - 10dB in 1dB steps.
Repeat the process with the next loudest channel etc. Once all channels sound the same in terms of loudness, press the OSD button again to save the settings
and exit the menu. 14 azur 5. Assigning video sources All of the 540R v3's rear panel video inputs (S-Video/Composite, Component and HDMI) are freely
assignable to the DVD, Video 1, Video 2, Tape/MD, CD/Aux and 6.1 Direct sources for maximum flexibility. Select the `Input Assign' menu.

same video input, as this would cause problems, but doesn't prevent you from setting the same source to different video inputs. The 540R v3 has two HMDI
(High Definition Multi-Media Interface) inputs and one HDMI output. HDMI is a fully digital audio/video system that passes the picture and audio to the
screen in digital format for best possible picture quality. DVI (Digital Video Interface) is a subset of HDMI that uses different connectors and only passes
digital video to the TV/Monitor (no audio). The 540R v3 is fully compatible with DVI in that simple passive DVI-HDMI adaptors are available which allow
the conversion of the DVI connector to an HDMI format connector (and back again if required) for routing via the 540R v3. The 540R v3 can switch both
types of signal. The 540R v3 performs HDMI switching, not processing, it routes the HDMI signals from the source equipment to the TV/Monitor without any
processing, so as far as the 540R v3 is concerned there is no setup involved other than to assign the three inputs to a desired source. The 540R v3 does not
receive audio or video over the HDMI, so for surroundsound decoding etc, an audio connection must also be made from your HDMI source to the 540R v3.
As with other sources this can be analog or digital audio.
A digital audio SPDIF/Toslink connection is preferred and will be required if it is desired to decode surround-sound for the HDMI sources. Press the OSD
button to exit the menu. HDMI Pre-Emphasis The HDMI interface is generally specified for transmission over cable lengths up to 5m. Longer cable runs can
sometimes be accommodated if very high quality HDMI cables are used. The 540R v3 is able to apply some pre-emphasis to the HDMI signals to allow for
cable losses in such situations.
For cable runs less than 5m HDMI Pre Emphasis should generally be `Off'. For runs greater than 5m HDMI Pre Emphasis should be `On'. Note: The
maximum cable length possible depends on cable quality and to some extent on the resolution of the video being transmitted (i.e. higher bit rate signals are
harder to transmit over long distances).
Use only good quality HDMI cables. Poor quality cables can have problems with HDMI at only 5m and only very high quality cables will work at distances
over 5m. Select the `Output Setup' menu, highlight `HDMI PRE' and select either `Off' or `On': Output Setup Menu Preamp Out HDMI PRE : Normal : On
Return to Menu : [OSD] Press the OSD button to exit the menu. Surround sound modes The 540R v3 has several music and home-cinema listening modes
available. The output from the 540R v3 will depend both on the source signal present, the speaker setup selected and the decode mode selected on the 540R
v3. Before we describe how to operate the 540R v3, below is a brief guide to the surround sound formats that the 540R v3 is compatible with: Pro Logic II
The replacement for original Pro Logic, Pro Logic II is a technology where 5 channels (Front Left, Front Right, Centre, Surround Left, Surround Right) are
encoded into a Stereo mix by an analog matrix process. Dolby Pro Logic II material can be played back by normal Stereo equipment (as Stereo) or decoded
into 5 channel surround-sound. Dolby Pro Logic II is compatible with the earlier 4 channel (Left, Centre, Right and mono Surround) Dolby Pro Logic system
(which was the decoding counterpart to Dolby Surround encoding) as used widely on Video tapes, TV broadcasts and earlier films. Note: Pro Logic does not
include a Low Frequency Effects channel for the Subwoofer, but the 540R v3 can create a Subwoofer output (for 5.1) via Bass management.
Refer to the `Advanced bass management' section in the `Operating instructions' part of this manual. Dolby Digital Known also as DD (3/2) or DD 5.1,
provides (up to) 5.1 output from suitable encoded Dolby Digital material, with 5 main channels (Front Left, Front Right, Centre, Surround Left, Surround
Right) and a Low Frequency Effects Channel for the subwoofer, all discretely encoded. Decoding Dolby Digital requires a Dolby Digital encoded DVD disc
and a digital connection from the source equipment (Such as a DVD player) to the 540R v3. Note: Dolby Digital and DTS formats can sometimes carry less
channels than their maximum such as Dolby Digital (2/0) which means a Dolby Digital encoded signal which is actually only carrying a two channel stereo
signal (other channels inactive). DTS Neo:6 A DTS technology which is able to recreate 6 channel (Left Front, Right Front, Centre, Left Surround, Right
Surround, Surround Back ) surround sound from suitable analog matrix encoded stereo source material. DTS Neo:6 material can be played back by normal
Stereo equipment (as Stereo) or decoded into 6 channel surround-sound. Note: Neo:6 does not include a Low Frequency Effects channel for the Subwoofer,
but the 540R v3 can create a Subwoofer output via Bass management. Refer to the `Advanced bass management' section in the `Operating instructions' part of
this manual.
DTS Known also as DTS (3/2) or DTS 5.1, DTS provides (up to) 5.1 output from suitable encoded DTS material, with 5 main channels (Front Left, Front
Right, Centre, Surround Left, Surround Right) and a Low Frequency Effects Channel for the subwoofer, all discretely encoded.

Decoding DTS requires a suitably encoded DTS disc and a digital connection from the source equipment to the 540R v3. Dolby Digital EX Known also as
DD (3/3) or DD 6.
1, an enhanced form of Dolby Digital. On top of the discretely encoded 5.1 channels DD EX provides an extra 6th channel (Surround Back, giving 6.1) matrix
encoded into the rear surrounds for greater image depth and more solid sound localisation behind the listener. DD EX requires a DD EX encoded disc.
DD EX is backwards compatible with DD 5.1 decoding. If DD EX is decoded as normal DD the Surround Back signal will be present in both Left and Right
Rear Surrounds (forming a phantom rear centre). DSP modes These modes allow a realistic surround-sound experience from source material that has no
encoding at all. The surround sound effect is achieved by Digital Signal Processing of the Analog or Digital stereo source used. Five modes are possible:
Movie, Music, Room, Theatre and Hall. DTS-ES Matrix Known also as DTS (3/3) Matrix, an enhanced form of DTS. On top of the discretely encoded 5.1
channels DTS ES also provides an extra 6th channel (Surround Back giving 6.1), matrix encoded into the rear surrounds for greater image depth and more
solid sound localisation behind the listener.
DTS ES requires a DTS ES encoded disc. DTS ES material is backwards compatible with DTS 5.1 decoding. If DTS ES is decoded as normal DTS the
Surround Back signal will be present in both Left and Right Rear Surrounds (forming a phantom rear centre). DTS-ES Discrete Another enhanced form of
DTS, also known as DTS (3/3) Discrete or DTS ES Discrete 6.1. DTS ES Discrete also provides an extra channel (Surround Back) for greater image depth
and more solid sound localisation behind the listener, however in this case extra data is included in the bitstream so that all channels are discretely encoded.
The Surround Back has greater separation from the other channels than is possible with matrix encoded technologies. DTS-ES Discrete requires a DTS-ES
Discrete encoded disc. DTS ES Discrete is backwards compatible with both DTS 5.
1 and DTS ES Matrix 6.1 decoding. If DTS ES Discrete is decoded as normal DTS the Surround Back signal will be present in both Left and Right Rear
Surrounds (forming a phantom rear centre). If DTS ES Discrete is decoded with DTS ES Matrix the Surround Back signal will be decoded separately (i.e.
as 6.1) but by a matrix process, which will give the same channel separation as if the source disc were actually DTS ES Matrix (but not as good as DTS EX
Discrete). 16 azur Operating instructions To activate the 540R v3, switch the Power button on the rear panel to On then press the Standby/On button on the

changing mode. Stereo Modes - Selects 2 channel Stereo operation for stereo material, pressing again selects Stereo + Sub mode.
This is a digitally processed mode that allows bass and treble controls, and sub generation if required. The input can be either analog (in which case it will be
turned into digital by 24 bit A/D conversion) or natively digital. Digital inputs can be connected to the SPDIF outputs from Tuner's or CD Players etc

Due to the matrix encoding process none of these modes incorporate flags that tell the 540R v3 the type of encoding used in the source material. Thus you
must manually select these modes. Dolby Digital EX/DTS ES Modes - Selects a range of digital surround modes with the appropriately digitally encoded
material (only).
These modes are for use with the digital outputs (set to Bitstream/Raw) from DVD players or satellite receivers etc. In order for the 540R v3 to allow selection
of these modes a valid input digital bitstream must be present. This is because the 540R v3 needs to read the incoming flags in order to determine the type of
