Speaker Polarity
Speakers
There are 6 speakers equipped with the unit (2 front,
1 center, 2 rear, 1 subwoofer). In order to enjoy good
surround effects all six speakers need to be connected to
the receiver
For better sound quality, Center speaker, rear speakers and
Subwoofer should also be connected. Adding center and
rear speakers will enhance surround effects. Adding a
Subwoofer will increase bass response.
If you want to enjoy full range of sound effects, it is a must
to use the subwoofer with the speakers to maintain a
dequate bass signal.
Center Speaker Setup
6
Downloaded from www.Manualslib.com manuals search engine
When connecting the speakers, make sure the polarities
(“+” speaker wire to “+” on the receiver) of speaker wires
and terminals are matched. If the cords are reversed, the
sound will be distorted and will lack bass (“out of phase”
effect).
Connecting the Subwoofer
Connect the subwoofer with the speaker wire (brown/
black) provided.
Getting Started
Alignment
Positioning your speaker
Align the center speaker evenly with (A), or slightly behind
(B), the left and right speakers, but not ahead of them.
1 Left, Right (Front Speakers)
EN
They carry primarily music and sound effects
2 Center
In surround mode, the center speaker carries much of the
dialogue as well as music and effects. It should be set
between the left and right speakers.
3 Surround (Rear Speakers)
Their overall sound balance should be as close as possible
to the front speakers. Proper placement is vital to establish
an evenly distributed sound field.
Subwoofer
A subwoofer is designed to reproduce powerful low bass
effects (explosions, the rumble of spaceships, etc.) which
dramatically heightens involvement with the action on the
screen. It is therefore recommended to connect subwoofers when small speakers are used.
Courtesy Dolby Laboratories
Advanced Setting
Angle
Magnetic shielding
Speakers placed less than two feet from the TV set must be
magnetically shielded in order to prevent picture distortion. Front and center speakers provided with DPL900VD
are magnetically shielded to protect your TV set.
Placing the left and right speakers to form a 45-degree
angle with your favorite viewing position will duplicate the
soundtrack mixer's perspective.
It is not recommended to place the rear speakers near the
TV set.

Front Speaker Placement
Height
The mid- and high-frequency drivers of the three front
speakers should be as close as possible to the same height.
This often requires placing the center speaker directly atop
(A) or beneath (B) the TV set.

Preferred surround placement
Location
If possible, place surround speakers to either side of the listening area, not behind it.
Advanced Setting
Alternative Surround Placement
Rear wall
If rear wall mounting is the only choice, aim the speakers at
each other (A), towards the front (B) or even towards the
sidewalls (C, D). Experiment with placement until surround
sounds seem to envelop you, rather than coming from
behind you.
Courtesy Dolby Laboratories
Height
If space permits, install surrounds 2-3 feet (60 - 90 cm)
above viewers. This helps to minimize localization effects.
Courtesy Dolby Laboratories
No adjacent walls
(60 - 90 cm)
Surrounds can go on stands facing each other to approximate the preferred sidewall mounting (A), or to the sides
or rear of the viewing area aimed upwards. In the latter
case, they can go right on the floor, or preferably, a few
feet off the floor such as on end tables (B).
Courtesy Dolby Laboratories
Aiming
Aiming surrounds straight across the room, not down at
viewers, helps create a more open, spacious surround sound
field.

Test Tone / Channel balance
Channel balance
Your receiver is equipped with a test signal generator for
balancing the channels. As the signal "travels" from channel to channel, adjust the level controls until each channel
plays at the same loudness level. (details see operation of
test/setup)
Using Headphones
To listen privately through your
audio system, use the PHONES jack
on the receiver. However, make sure
you turn down the volume before
you put on the headphones. Increase
the volume to the desired level after
headphones are in place.
EN
Once headphones are connected, “HEADPHONE DOWNMIX
2 CHANNEL” will scroll on display. This feature automatically converts multi-channel outputs to 2 channel stereo for
your listening pleasure.
Hearing Comfort & Well-Being
• Do not play your headset at a high volume. Hearing
experts advise against continuous extended play.
• If you experience a ringing in your ears, reduce volume
or discontinue use.
Factory Setting
Courtesy Dolby Laboratories
Level adjustment & surround channel level expectation
The DPL900VD is preset to the following setting when you
first turn on the power
Source = DVD/CD
Volume setting = 45 dB
Treble = 0 dB
Restore to Factory Settings
Even though you adjust the surround channel to be as loud
as the others on the test signal, you'll find that on actual
program material the surround channel is usually much
lower than the front. Don't be tempted to readjust the surround level; program producers use surround mostly for
subtle atmosphereics and ambience, and only rarely for
special effects. A good surround mix doesn't call attention
to itself; if it did, it would soon become distracting.
NOTE
You can always restore all settings back to its original state.
When the receiver is in STANDBY mode, press accordingly
on the main unit to restore all settings back to factory
default :

Advanced Sound Control
Sound Enhancement Systems
Dolby Digital
This receiver is equipped with several built-in sound
enhancement systems.
The Dolby Digital mode lets you enjoy full digital
surround from software processed in the Dolby Digital
format. Dolby Digital provides better sound quality and
more powerful presence than conventional Dolby
Surround.
Dolby Pro Logic II and Dolby 3 Stereo
The Pro Logic II mode uses the built-in circuit to steer the
Left, Center, Right and Surround left and right channel
audio signals and uses all five speakers to play both stereo
and Dolby Pro Logic program source, such as TV and VCR.
Dolby Pro Logic II includes Dolby Pro Logic II Movie, Dolby
Pro Logic II Music and Dolby Pro Logic.
Use this mode to suit the type of program (such as VCR).

This unit is equipped with Dolby Digital 5.1-channel so
that you can enjoy enhanced full digital surround sound.
Being different from Dolby Pro Logic in which only four
channels ( Front Left, Front Right, Centre and Rear ) are
used, the new system provides stereo separation of the rear
speakers (Rear-Right, Rear-Left ). These 5 channels,
together with the subwoofer channel for bass sounds
(counted as 0.1 channel ), constitute as 5.1-Channel ( or 6
Channels ) Input for Dolby Digital that brings you the most
sophisticated sound enjoyment.

Advanced Sound Control
Stereo
Input Signal Setting
The Stereo mode uses the two main channel outputs from
the front speakers.
The receiver defaults to the most convenient settings for
your easiest use (see table).
DSP (Digital Sound Processor)
By default, SAT (satellite) is set to analog input. If you wish
to change the input formats, follow the steps below:
1. Press SOURCE on the main unit until SAT appears on the
display or press the SAT/CAB source buttons on the remote
control.
2. Press DIGITAL on the remote control to toggle among
optical/ coaxial/ analog to match your connection. Your
selection will be stored automatically.
These digital sound effects resemble sounds in a real
environment such as Arena, Jazz, Theater, Stadium and
Disco. DSP automatically converts analog audio signals to
digital ones which enables you to adjust the sound without
degrading the sound quality. Different modes will give you
different feel of size and type of listening environment.
(Not available in Dolby Digital (DVD))
Every time you press the source button, the input setting
(e.g. SAT/ ANL) will be shown on display for a few seconds.
Night Mode
By using Dynamic Range Compression technology (pressing
OK), you can enjoy enhanced Dolby Digital sound quality at
night without interrupting your roommates or neighbors.
Night Mode will compress the difference in volume
between normal voices and sound like explosions, while still
enjoying a Dolby Digital enable component (DVD, SAT).
Night Mode can be activated by pressing the OK
button repeatedly until NORMAL appears on the display.
While Normal is still on the display, press the LEFT or RIGHT
Adjustment buttons on the remote control,around the OK
button, on the remote control until you select the desired
mode. There are three modes (NORMAL, SOFT, SOFTER) for
you to choose the extents of compression.
Fine Setting of the Components
The receiver has pre-selected the best surround mode for
you once you turn on the unit by pressing the SOURCE
Buttons (like DVD/CD, SAT) directly. The default surround
modes for different components are as tabled below.
If you decide to change the surround mode, you can press

It is important to note, however, that not all Dolby Digital
sources are encoded with the full complement of five channels plus LFE*. Speaker icons show how many and which
speaker you have enabled (See “Fine Setting of the
Speakers”) and the letters inside the speaker icons show
which channel is present in the source information. For
example, the diagram shown means you have all the five
speakers and subwoofer enabled and the digital sources
you played have five channels plus LFE complemented.
(Dolby Digital 5.1 Channels)
* LFE stands for Low Frequency Effect. The indication “LFE”
appears if the digital source contains LFE information. In
this case, the bass signal will be delivered to the subwoofer,
offering more dynamic deep bass sound effects. If the letter
is flashing, the signal is either too weak or just gone.
