2. CONNECTING VIDEO COMPONENTS
• There are three types of video jacks(COMPONENT, S-VIDEO, (composite) VIDEO) for connecting video components.
Connect them to the corresponding video jacks according to their capability.
• For your reference, the excellence in picture quality is as follows : “COMPONENT” > “S-VIDEO” > “(composite) VIDEO”.
• When making COMPONENT VIDEO connections, connect “Y” to “Y”, “PB/CB” to “CB”(or “B-Y”, “PB”) and “PR/CR” to “CR”(or “RY”, “PR” ).
• When connecting to video recording component such as video deck, DVD recorder, etc., you must use the same type of video
jacks that you did connect to video playback components such as DVD player, LD player, etc.
• This unit is equipped with a function that up-converts composite video or S-Video signals to component video signals or downconverts S-Video signals to composite video signals and outputs them from the MONITOR OUTs. Because of this, one of
three types of MONITOR OUT jacks can be connected to the monitor TV regardless of how the video components are
connected to VIDEO IN jacks of this unit.
• Connect the video components, referring to the following table.

3. CONNECTING AUDIO COMPONENTS
• The AUX jacks may be connected to an additional audio component such as a CD player, a tape deck, etc.
4. CONNECTING EXTERNAL INs
• Use these jacks to connect the corresponding outputs of a DVD
player or external decoder, etc. that has 6 or 7 channel analog
audio outputs
• In case of 6 channel outputs, do not connect this SURROUND
BACK input to your audio component.(For details, refer to the
operating instructions of the component to be connected.)
5. CONNECTING DIGITAL INs and OUT
• The OPTICAL and the COAXIAL DIGITAL OUTs of the
components that are connected to CD and VIDEO 1~ VIDEO 3 of
this unit can be connected to these DIGITAL INs.
• A digital input should be connected to the components such as a
CD player, LD player, DVD player, etc. capable of outputting DTS
Digital Surround, Dolby Digital or PCM format digital signals, etc.
• If the component with OPTICAL IN jack is connected to the
OPTICAL OUT jack of this unit, you can record the high quality
sound of CDs, etc. without degradation.
• For details, refer to the operating instructions of the component
connected.
• When making the COAXIAL DIGITAL connection, be sure to use a
75 Ω COAXIAL cord, not a conventional AUDIO cord.
• All of the commercially available optical fiber cords cannot be used
for the equipment. If there is an optical fiber cord which cannot be
connected to your equipment, consult your dealer or nearest
service organization.
Note :
• Be sure to make either a OPTICAL or a COAXIAL DIGITAL
connection on each component. (You don’t need to do both.)

6. CONNECTING SYSTEM CONTROL
• Connect this jack to the DIGI LINK jack of the external
Sherwood component that uses the DIGI LINK II or III
remote control system.
7. SUBWOOFER PREOUT connection
• To emphasize the deep bass sounds, connect a powered
subwoofer.
8. CONNECTING SPEAKERS
• Be sure to connect speakers firmly and correctly according
to the channel(left and right) and the polarity(+ and -). If the
connections are faulty, no sound will be heard from the
speakers, and if the polarity of the speaker connection is
incorrect, the sound will be unnatural and lack bass.
• For installing the speakers, refer to “Speaker placement” on
page 8.
• After installing the speakers, first adjust the speaker settings
according to your environment and speaker layout.(For
details, refer to “Speaker Setup” on page 18.)
Caution :
• Be sure to use the speakers with the impedance of 6 ohms
or above.
• Do not let the bare speaker wires touch each other or any
metal part of this unit. This could damage this unit and/or
the speakers.
7
Speaker placement
Ideal speaker placement varies depending on the size of your
room and the wall coverings, etc. The typical example of
speaker placement and recommendations are as follows :
Front left and right speakers and center speaker
• Place the front speakers with their front surfaces as flush with TV or
monitor screen as possible.
• Place the center speaker between the front left and right speakers
and no further from the listening position than the front speakers.
• Place each speaker so that sound is aimed at the location of the
listener’s ears when at the main listening position.
Surround left and right speakers
• Place the surround speakers approximately 1 meter (40 inches)
above the ear level of a seated listener on the direct left and right of
them or slightly behind.
Surround back speaker
• Place the surround back speaker at the rear center facing the front at
a slightly higher position (0 to 10 inches) than the surround speakers.
• We recommend installing the surround back speaker at a slightly
downward facing angle. This effectively prevents the surround back
channel signals from reflecting off the TV or screen at the front center,
resulting in interference and making the sense of movement from the
front to the back less sharp.
Subwoofer
• The subwoofer reproduces powerful deep bass sounds.
Place a powered subwoofer anywhere in the front as desired.
Notes :
• When using a conventional TV , to avoid interference with the TV
picture, use only magnetically shielded front left and right and center
speakers.
• To obtain the best surround effects, the speakers except the
subwoofer should be full range speakers.

SURROUND SOUND
• This receiver incorporates a sophisticated Digital Signal Processor that allows you to create optimum sound quality and sound
atmosphere in your personal Home Theater.
Surround modes
DTS Digital Surround
• DTS Neo : 6 Cinema
This mode is optimum for playing movies. Decoding is
performed with emphasis on separation performance to
achieve the same atmosphere with 2-channel sources as with
6.1-channel sources.
DTS Digital Surround(also called simply DTS) is a multichannel digital signal format which can handle higher data
rates. Discs bearing the “
” include the recording of
up to 5.1 channels of digital signals, which can be generally
thought to provide better sound quality due to the lower audio
compression required.
It also provides wide dynamic range and separation, resulting
in magnificent sound.
DTS - ES Extended Surround™ (
• DTS Neo : 6 Music
This mode is suited mainly for playing music. The front left
and front right signals bypass the decoder and are played
directly so there is no loss of sound quality, and the effect of
the surround signals from the center, surround left, surround
right and surround back channels adds a natural sense of
expansion to the sound field.
)
This is a new multi channel digital signal format which greatly
improves the 360- degree surround impression and space
expression thanks to further expanded surround signals,
offering high compatibility with the conventional DTS format.
In addition to the 5.1 channels, DTS-ES Extended Surround
also offers the surround back (sometimes also referred to as
“surround center”) channel for surround playback with a total
of 6.1 channels. DTS-ES Extended Surround includes two
signal formats with different surround signal recording
methods as follows:
DTS 96/24
Conventional surround formats used sampling frequencies of
48 or 44.1 kHz, so 20 kHz was about the maximum playback
signal frequency. With DTS 96/24, the sampling frequency is
increased to 96 or 88.2 kHz to achieve a wide frequency
range of over 40 kHz. In addition, this format has a resolution
of 24 bits, resulting in the same frequency band and dynamic
range as 96kHz / 24 bit PCM signals.
As with conventional DTS surround, DTS 96/24 is compatible
with a maximum of 5.1 channels. DTS 96/24 is fully
compatible with the conventional DTS surround format, so
DTS 96/24 sources can be played using a conventional DTS
5.1 channel decoder.
• DTS-ES™ Discrete 6.1
Because the signals for 6.1 channels (including the surround back
channel) are fully independent, it is possible to achieve a sense
that the acoustic image are moving about freely among the
background sounds surrounding the listener from 360 degrees.
Though maximum performance is achieved when sound
tracks recorded with this system are played using a DTS -ES
decoder, when played with a conventional DTS decoder, the
surround back channel signals are automatically downmixed
to the surround left and surround right channels so that none
of the signal components are lost.

Digital Theater Systems, Inc.
Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is the multi- channel digital signal format
developed by Dolby Laboratories. Discs bearing the
“
” includes the recording of up to 5.1 channels of
• DTS - ES™ Matrix 6.1
With this format, the additional surround back channel
signals undergo matrix encoding and are input to the
surround left and surround right channels beforehand. During
playback, they are decoded to the surround left, surround
right and surround back channels.
Because the bit stream format is 100% compatible with
conventional DTS signals, the effect of the DTS-ES Matrix 6.1
format can be achieved even with DTS 5.1- channel signal
sources. Of course, it is possible to play DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 channel signal sources with a DTS 5.1 - channel decoder.
When DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 or Matrix 6.1 sources are decoded
with a DTS - ES decoder, the format is automatically detected
upon decoding and the optimum surround mode is selected.
However, some DTS - ES Matrix 6.1 sources may be detected
as DTS sources. In this case, the DTS - ES Matrix mode
should be selected manually to play these sources.
digital signals, which can reproduce much better sound
quality, spatial expansion and dynamic range characteristics
than the previous Dolby Surround effect.
Dolby Digital EX
This mode creates the back (sometimes also referred to as
“surround center”) signals from the surround left and right
signals in Dolby Digital 5.1 channel source using a matrix
decoder and provides 6.1 channel surround playback. For the
best results, this mode should be selected during playback of
sources(bearing the “
”) recorded in Dolby Digital
EX. With this additional channel, you can experience more
dynamic and realistic moving sound especially.
When Dolby Digital EX sources are decoded with a Dolby
Digital EX decoder, the format is automatically detected upon
decoding and the Dolby Digital EX mode is selected.
However, some Dolby Digital EX sources may be detected as
Dolby Digital sources. In this case, the Dolby Digital EX mode
should be selected manually to play these sources.
DTS Neo : 6™ surround
This mode applies conventional 2-channel signals such as
digital PCM or analog stereo signals to the high precision digital
matrix decoder used for DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 to achieve 6.1channel surround playback. DTS Neo : 6 surround includes two
modes for selecting the optimum decoding for the signal source.
27
Dolby Pro Logic IIx surround
Dolby Headphone
Dolby Pro Logic IIx decodes all stereo (2 channel ) and 5.1
channel sources and extends to 7.1channel surround
playback. It delivers the most natural, full range and
immersing 7.1 channel listening experience. Dolby Pro Logic
IIx surround includes two modes as follows :
The Dolby Headphone function simulates 5.1 channel
surround sound, which allows you to enjoy 5.1 channel
surround sound through 2 channel headphones, just like
listening from 5.1 channel speakers.
This mode is effective not only for 5.1 channel sources but
also for stereo(2 channel) sources.
• Dolby Pro Logic IIx Movie
When enjoying movies, this mode allows you to further
enhance the cinematic quality by adding processing that
emphasizes the sounds of the action special effects.

the ambience and dynamics of movie soundtracks and music
alike. Though the number of audio channels are same as
Dolby Digital, discs bearing the “
” provides
much better at locating individual sounds to the correct and
stable position in the sound stage.
Dolby Pro Logic II surround
This mode applies conventional 2-channel signals such as
digital PCM or analog stereo signals as well as Dolby
Surround signals, etc. to surround processing to offer
improvements over conventional Dolby Pro Logic circuits.
Dolby Pro Logic II surround includes Dolby Pro Logic II Movie
and Dolby Pro Logic II Music like Dolby Pro Logic IIx
surround.
• The following modes apply conventional 2-channel signals
such as digital PCM or analog stereo signals to high
performance Digital Signal Processor to recreate sound
fields artificially. Select one of the 3 provided surround
modes according to the program source you want to play.
Dolby Virtual Speaker
This mode creates a virtual surround sound field using as few
as two front speakers, allowing you to experience listening
from 5.1 channel speakers.
This mode is effective not only for 5.1 channel sources but
also for stereo(2 channel) sources.
Dolby VIrtual Speaker includes two listening mode as follows:
Theater
This mode provides the effect of being in a movie theater
when watching a movie.
Hall
This mode provides the ambience of a concert hall for
classical music sources such as orchestral, chamber music
or an instrumental solo.
• Dolby Virtual Speaker Reference
The width of the front sound image is defined by the actual
distance between front speakers.
Stadium
• Dolby Virtual Speaker Wide
The width of the front sound image seems to extend beyond
the front speakers.
This mode provides the expansive sound field to achieve the
true stadium effect when watching baseball or soccer games.
