7 Connecting a DVD recorder or DVD player
Connecting video components
You can use composite video cables or S-video cables for video
connection. By using the S-video cable, you can get better picture
quality.
• If your video components have digital output terminal, also
connect them using the digital terminals explained in “Digital
connection” (see page 9). By using these terminals, you can get
better sound quality.

220V
110V
230 240V
127V
CAUTIONS:
• The video signals from one type of input terminals are
transmitted only through the video output terminals of the same
type. Therefore, if a recording video component and a playing
video component are connected to the receiver through the
video terminals of different type, you cannot record the picture.
In addition, if the TV and a playing video component are
connected to the receiver through the video terminals of
different type, you cannot view the playback picture on the TV.
• If you connect a sound-enhancing device such as a graphic
equalizer between the source components and this receiver, the
sound output through this receiver may be distorted.

To obtain the best possible sound effect from Surround/DSP
modes (see pages 25 to 29), you need to set up the speaker and
subwoofer information after all the connections are completed.
From pages 14 to 19, how to set speakers and other basic items
of the receiver are explained.
The receiver starts detecting the level of the sound coming
through each speakers (except the subwoofer).
Setting the speaker information
automatically—Smart Surround Setup
The distance from your listening point to the speakers is one of
the important elements to obtain the best possible sound effect for
the Surround/DSP modes.
By using Smart Surround Setup, the following are automatically
calculated by one simple action—clapping hands.
• Speaker distance (compared to that of the closest speaker)
• Speaker output level
When your clapping sound is detected successfully,

NOTES
• To set the speaker information effectively using Smart Surround
Setup, unplug the power cords of all the components connected
to this receiver and the subwoofer which may cause noise.
• Before starting Smart Surround Setup, set the speaker
information correctly (SML, LRG, or NO) according to your
speakers except the subwoofer (see page 16).
• When the setting is made by Smart Surround Setup, the
speaker distance and output level you have set before will be
inactive.
• If you have turned off the display, cancel the Dimmer (see page
12); otherwise, you cannot see the information on the display
during Smart Surround Setup.
• Smart Surround Setup will not be done correctly if you or other
object blocks the sound.

Creating realistic
sound fields
Introducing the Surround modes
■ Dolby Digital*
Dolby Digital is a digital signal compression method, developed by
Dolby Laboratories, and enables multi-channel encoding and
decoding (1ch up to 5.1ch).
• When Dolby Digital signal is detected through the digital input,
the DOLBY D indicator lights up on the display.
Dolby Digital 5.1CH
Reproducing theater ambience
In a movie theater, many speakers are located on the walls to
reproduce impressive multi-surround sound, reaching you from all
directions.
With these many speakers, sound localization and sound
movement can be expressed.
Surround/DSP modes built in this receiver can create almost the
same Surround sound as you can feel in a real movie theater.
Dolby Digital 5.1CH (DOLBY D) encoding method records and
digitally compresses the left front channel, right front channel,
center channel, left surround channel, right surround channel, and
LFE channel signals (total 6 channels, but the LFE channel is
counted as 0.1 channel. Therefore, called 5.1 channel).
Dolby Digital enables stereo surround sounds, and sets the cutoff
frequency of the surround treble at 20 kHz, compared to 7 kHz for
Dolby Pro Logic. As such, the sound movement and “being-there”
feeling are enhanced much more than Dolby Pro Logic.
Another digital surround encoding format introduced by Dolby
Laboratories is Dolby Digital EX, which adds the third surround
channels, called “surround back.”
Compared to the conventional Dolby Digital 5.1CH, these newly
added surround back channels can reproduce more detailed
movements behind you while viewing the video software. In
addition, surround sound localization will become more stable.
• You can use Virtual Surround Back (see page 18) when playing
back Dolby Digital Surround EX software. This function creates
the great surround effect from the behind as if you have
connected the surround back speaker. The VIRTUAL SB
indicator lights up on the display.
Dolby Pro Logic II
PLII MOVIE:
Suitable for playing any Dolby Surround encoded
software. You can enjoy a sound field very close
to the one created with discrete 5.1-channel
sounds.
PLII MUSIC:
Suitable for playing any 2-channel stereo
software. You can enjoy wide and deep sounds.
• To enjoy software encoded with Dolby Digital, connect the
source component using the digital terminal on the rear of this
receiver. (See page 9.)

Creating realistic sound fields
Dolby Pro Logic II is a multi-channel playback format to convert 2channel software into 5-channel (plus subwoofer). The matrixbased conversion method used for Dolby Pro Logic II makes no
limitation for the cutoff frequency of the surround treble and
enables stereo surround sound.
• This receiver provides two types of Dolby Pro Logic II modes—
Pro Logic II Movie (PLII MOVIE) and Pro Logic II Music (PLII
MUSIC).
When Dolby Pro Logic II is activated, the
indicator lights
up on the display.
■ DTS**
DTS is another digital signal compression method, developed by
Digital Theater Systems, Inc., and enables multi-channel
encoding and decoding (1ch up to 6.1ch).
• When DTS signal is detected through the digital input, the DTS
indicator lights up on the display.
DTS Digital Surround
DTS Digital Surround (DTS) is another discrete 5.1 channel digital
audio format available on CD, LD, and DVD software.
Compared to Dolby Digital, the DTS Digital Surround format has a
lower audio compression rate which enables it to add breadth and
depth to the sounds reproduced. As such, DTS Digital Surround
features natural, solid, and clear sound.
Another multi-channel digital surround encoding format introduced
by Digital Theater Systems, Inc. is DTS Extended Surround
(DTS-ES).
It greatly improves the 360-degree surround impression and
space expression by adding the third surround channel—surround
back channel.
DTS-ES includes two signal formats with different surround signal
recording methods—DTS-ES Discrete 6.1ch and DTS-ES Matrix
6.1ch.
• You can use the Virtual Surround Back (see page 18) when
playing back DTS-ES software. This function creates the great
surround effect from the behind as if you have connected the
surround back speaker. The VIRTUAL SB indicator lights up on
the display.
DTS 96/24
In recent years, there has been increasing interest in higher
sampling rates both for recording and for reproducing at home.
Higher sampling rates allow wider frequency range and greater bit
depths provide extended dynamic range.
DTS 96/24 is a multi-channel digital signal format (fs 96 kHz/24
bits) introduced by Digital Theater Systems, Inc. to deliver “betterthan-CD sound quality” into the home.
• When DTS 96/24 signal is detected, the DTS and 96/24
indicators light up. You can enjoy its 5.1-channel sound with fullquality.
• If either the surround speakers or center speaker is set to
“NO” in the speaker setting (see page 16), the corresponding
channel signals are allocated to and emitted through the front
speakers.
• If both the surround speakers and center speaker are set to
“NO” in the speaker setting (see page 16), JVC’s original 3DPHONIC processing (which has been developed to create the
surround effect through the front speakers only) is used. The 3D
indicator lights up on the display.
3D HEADPHONE mode
If you connect a pair of headphones while one of the Surround
modes is in use, the 3D HEADPHONE mode is activated
without respect to the type of software played back.
“3DHEADPHONE” appears on the display and the DSP, 3D,
and HP indicators light up.
About other digital signals
Linear PCM
Uncompressed digital audio data used for DVDs, CDs, and
Video CDs.
DVDs support 2 channels with sampling rates of 48/96 kHz,
at quantization of 16/20/24 bits. On the other hand, CDs and
Video CDs are limited to 2 channels with 44.1 kHz at 16 bits.
• When Linear PCM signal is detected, the LPCM indicator
lights up.
Dual Mono
Dual Mono can be easily understood when you think of the
bilingual broadcast for TV programs (however, the Dual Mono
format is not identical with those analog formats).
This format is now adopted in Dolby Digital, DTS, and so on.
It allows two independent channels (called main channel and
sub-channel) to be recorded separately.
• You can select either channel you want to listen to (see
page 18).

Introducing the DSP modes
The sound heard in a concert hall, club, etc. 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.
The DSP modes can create these important elements, and give
you a real “being there” feeling.
Reflections from behind
Early reflections
When using the DAP mode, the sounds come out of all the
connected and activated speakers.
• If the surround speakers are set to “NO” in the speaker
setting (see page 16), JVC’s original 3D-PHONIC processing
(which has been developed to create the surround effect
through the front speakers only) is used.
The 3D indicator lights up on the display.
■ MONO FILM
In order to reproduce a more acoustic sound field in your listening
room while viewing monaural sound video software (analog and
2-channel digital signals including Dual Mono signal), you can use
this mode.
The surround effect will be added, and the sound localization of
actor’s words will be improved.
This mode cannot be used for multi-channel digital signals.
Direct sounds
The DSP modes include the following modes:
• Digital Acoustic Processor (DAP) modes—HALL1, HALL2, LIVE
CLUB, DANCE CLUB, PAVILION, THEATER1, THEATER2
• MONO FILM—Used for all types of 2-channel signals (including
Dual Mono signal)
• All Channel Stereo mode (ALL CH ST.)
When “MONO FILM” is used, sounds come out of all the
connected (and activated) speakers.
• If the surround speakers are set to “NO” in the speaker
setting (see page 16), JVC’s original 3D-PHONIC processing
(which has been developed to create the surround effect
through the front speakers only) is used.
The 3D indicator lights up on the display.
• If incoming signals change from 2-channel digital signal to
another digital signal type, “MONO FILM” is canceled and an
appropriate Surround mode is activated.
■ All Channel Stereo mode (ALL CH ST.)
This mode can reproduce a larger stereo sound field using all the
connected (and activated) speakers. This mode cannot be used
without activating the surround speakers.
When one of the DSP modes is activated, the DSP indicator lights
up on the display.
■ Digital Acoustic Processor (DAP) modes
You can use the following DAP modes in order to reproduce a
more acoustic sound field in your listening room.
Reproduces the spatial feeling of a large
shoebox-shaped hall designed primarily for
classical concerts. (Its seating capacity is about
2000.)
HALL2
Reproduces the spatial feeling of a large
vineyard-shaped hall designed primarily for
classical concerts. (Its seating capacity is about
2000.)
LIVE CLUB
Reproduces the spatial feeling of a live music club
with a low ceiling.
DANCE CLUB Reproduces the spatial feeling of a rocking dance
club.
PAVILION
Reproduces the spatial feeling of an exhibition
hall with a high ceiling.
THEATER1
Reproduces the spatial feeling of a large theater
where the seating capacity is about 600.
THEATER2
Reproduces the spatial feeling of a small theater
where the seating capacity is about 300.

3D HEADPHONE mode
If you connect a pair of headphones while one of the DSP
modes is in use, the 3D HEADPHONE mode is activated
without respect to the type of software played back.
“3DHEADPHONE” appears on the display and the DSP, 3D,
and HP indicators light up.
NOTE
When “THEATER1” or “THEATER2” is activated while playing
back 2-channel analog or digital source, the built-in Dolby Pro
Logic II decoder is activated and the
indicator lights up.
