Using the DSP Modes
The built-in Surround Processor provides two types of the DSP (Digital Signal Processor) mode — Surround mode and
DAP (Digital Acoustic Processor) mode.
What are the DSP Modes?
Surround modes
With this receiver, you can use three types of the Surround mode.
Following modes cannot be used when only the front speakers
are connected to this receiver (without the rear speakers or
center speaker).
JVC Theater Surround
In order to reproduce a more realistic sound field in your listening
room while playing soundtracks of software encoded with Dolby
Surround (bearing the mark
DOLBY SURROUND ), you can use JVC
Theater Surround.
Dolby Surround (Dolby Digital and Dolby Pro Logic)*
Used to watch the soundtracks of software encoded with Dolby
Digital (bearing the mark D I G I T A L ) or with Dolby Surround
DOLBY SURROUND ).
(bearing the mark
Dolby Surround encoding format records the left front channel, right
front channel, center channel, and rear channel (total 4 channels)
signals into 2 channels. The Dolby Pro Logic decoder built in this
receiver decodes these 2 channel signals into original 4 channel
signals — matrix-based multichannel reproduction, and allows you
to enjoy the realistic stereo sounds in your listening room.
On the other hand, Dolby Digital encoding method (so called
discrete 5.1 channel digital audio format) records and compresses
the left front channel, right front channel, center channel, left rear
channel, right rear channel, and LFE channel (total 6 channels, but
LFE channel is counted as 0.1 channel, therefore called 5.1
channels) signals digitally. Each channel is completely independent
from other channel signals to avoid interference, therefore, you can
obtain much better sound quality with much stereo and surround
effects.
The Dolby Digital decoder built in this receiver can create much
more realistic sound field in your listening room. You may feel as if
you were in a real theater.
In addition, Dolby Digital enables stereo rear sounds, and sets the
cutoff frequency of the rear treble at 20 kHz, compared to 7 kHz for
Dolby Pro Logic. These facts enhance the sound movement and
being-there feelings much more than Dolby Pro Logic.
• To enjoy the software encoded with Dolby Digital, you must
connect the source component using the digital terminal on the
rear of this receiver. (See page 8.)
Notes:
• The DSP modes have no effect on monaural sources.
• When you select “DVD MULTI” as the source to play, you cannot
select or adjust the DSP modes.
• The PRO LOGIC indicator lights up when the Dolby Pro Logic
decoder built in this receiver is activated.
DTS Digital Surround**
DTS Digital Surround is another discrete 5.1 channel digital audio
format available on CD, LD, and DVD software.
Compared to Dolby Digital, audio compression rate is relatively low.
This fact allows DTS Digital Surround format to add breadth and
depth to the reproduced sounds. As a result, DTS Digital Surround
features natural, solid and clear sound.
• To enjoy the software encoded with DTS Digital Surround, you
must connect the source component using the digital terminal on
the rear of this receiver. (See page 8.)

Reproducing the Sound Field
DAP modes
In order to reproduce a more acoustic sound field in your listening
room while playing soundtracks of stereo sources, you can use DAP
modes. This mode can be used when the front speakers and the
rear speakers are connected to this receiver (without respect to
the center speaker connection).
You can select one of the following to your preference.
LIVE CLUB:
The sound heard in a concert hall or club consists of direct sound
and indirect sound — early reflections and reflections from behind.
Direct sounds reach the listener directly without any reflection. On
the other hand, indirect sounds are delayed by the distances of the
ceiling and walls. These direct sounds and indirect sounds are the
most important elements of the acoustic surround effects.
JVC Theater Surround and DAP modes can create these important
elements, and give you a real “being there” feeling.
Gives the feeling of a live music club with a low
ceiling.
DANCE CLUB: Gives a throbbing bass beat.
HALL:
Gives clear vocal and the feeling of a concert hall.
PAVILION:
Gives the spacious feeling of a pavilion with a high
ceiling.
Reflections from
behind
Early reflections
DVD MULTI Playback Mode
This receiver provides the DVD MULTI playback mode for
reproducing the analog discrete 5.1 channel output mode of the
DVD player or other equipment.
You can adjust the DVD MULTI playback mode while playing
back a video software such as a DVD using the analog discrete
5.1 channel output mode.
• For the DVD MULTI playback mode connection, see page 7.
• For details on the DVD MULTI playback mode, see page 27.

COMPU LINK Remote Control System
The COMPU LINK remote control system allows you to operate JVC audio components through the remote sensor on
the receiver.
To use this remote control system, you need to connect JVC audio
components through the COMPU LINK (SYNCHRO) jacks (see
below) in addition to the connections using cables with RCA pin
plugs (see pages 5 and 6).
• Make sure that the AC power cords of these components are
unplugged before connection. Plug the AC power cords only after
all connections are complete.
CD player
Cassette deck
or
CD recorder
COMPU LINK-4
(SYNCHRO)
Automatic Power On/Off (Standby): only possible
with the COMPU LINK-3 and COMPU LINK--4
connection
The connected components turn on and off (standby) along with the
receiver.
When you turn on the receiver, one of the connected component will
turn on automatically, depending on which component has been
previously selected.
When you turn off the receiver, the connected components will turn
off (standby).
Synchronized Recording
Synchronized recording means the cassette deck starts recording as
soon as a CD begins playing.
To use synchronized recording, follow these steps:
1. Put a tape in the cassette deck, and a disc in the
CD player.
2. Press the record (¶) button and the pause (8)
button on the cassette deck at the same time.
Turntable
This puts the cassette deck into recording pause.
If you do not press the record (¶) button and pause (8) button at
the same time, the synchronized recording feature will not
operate.
3. Press the play (3) button on the CD player.
Notes:
• There are four versions of COMPU LINK remote control system.
This receiver is equipped with the fourth version — COMPU LINK4. This version is added systematic operations with the CD recorder
to the previous version — COMPU LINK-3.
• If your audio component has two COMPU LINK jacks, you can use
either one. If it has only one COMPU LINK jack, connect it so that it
is the last item in the series of components. (For example, the
turntable or CD player in the diagram above.)
• To operate the cassette deck or CD recorder using the COMPU
LINK remote control system, set the source name correctly. (See
page 13.)
• Refer also to the manuals supplied with your audio components.
The source changes on the receiver, and as soon as play starts,
the cassette deck starts recording. When the play ends, the
cassette deck enters recording pause, and stops about 4 seconds
later.
Notes:
• During synchronized recording, the selected source cannot be
changed.
• If the power of any component is shut off during synchronized
recording, the COMPU LINK remote control system may not
operate properly. In this case, you must start again from the
beginning.
This remote control system allows you to use four functions listed
below.
Remote Control through the Remote Sensor on the
Receiver
You can control the connected audio components through the remote
sensor on the receiver using this remote control. Aim the remote
control directly at the remote sensor on the receiver. For details, see
pages 31 and 32.
Automatic Source Selection
When you press the play (3
3) button on a connected component or
on its own remote control, the receiver automatically turns on and
changes the source to the component. On the other hand, if you
select a new source on the receiver or on the remote control, the
selected component begins playing immediately.
In both cases, the previously selected source continues playing
without sound for a few seconds.
