(AUTO CALIBRATION)
This receiver is equipped with DCAC (Digital
Cinema Auto Calibration) Technology which
allows you to perform automatic calibration as
follows:
• Check the connection between each speaker
and the receiver.a)
• Adjust the speaker level.
• Measure the distance of each speaker from
your listening position.a)
• Measure the speaker size.a)
• Measure the speaker polarity.
• Measure the frequency characteristics.a)b)
a) The
measurement result is not utilized in the
following cases.
– ANALOG DIRECT is selected.
b) The measurement result is not utilized in the
following cases.
– Dolby TrueHD signals with a sampling
frequency of more than 96 kHz are being
received.
– PCM signals with a sampling frequency of more
than 96 kHz are being received.
The DCAC is designed to obtain proper sound
balance in your room. However, you can
adjust the speaker levels and balance manually
according to your preference. For details, see
“9: Adjusting the speaker levels and balance
(TEST TONE)” (page 37).
Before you perform Auto
Calibration
Before you perform the Auto Calibration, set
up and connect the speakers (page 16, 17).
• The AUTO CAL MIC jack is used for the
supplied optimizer microphone only. Do not
connect other microphones to this jack.
Doing so may damage the receiver and the
microphone.
• During the calibration, the sound that comes
out of the speakers is very loud. The volume
of the sound cannot be adjusted. Pay
attention to the presence of children or to the
effect on your neighborhood.
• Perform the Auto Calibration in a quiet
environment to avoid the effect of noise and
get a more accurate measurement.
• If there are any obstacles in the path between
the optimizer microphone and the speakers,
the calibration cannot be performed
correctly. Remove any obstacles from the
measurement area to avoid measurement
error.
Notes
• The Auto Calibration function does not work in the
following cases.
– SPEAKERS (OFF/A/B/A+B) is set to off.
– Headphones are connected.
• If you activate the muting function during Auto
Calibration, the muting function will automatically
be set to off.

The size of a speaker (LARGE/SMALL) is
determined by the low frequency
characteristics.
The measurement results may vary, depending
on the position of the optimizer microphone
and speakers, and the shape of the room. It is
recommended that you follow the
measurement results. However, you can
change those settings in the SPEAKER menu
(page 48). Save the measurement results first,
then try to change the settings if you want.
When you select “PHASE

x D. RANGE (Dynamic range

Lets you compress the dynamic range of the
sound track. This may be useful when you
want to watch movies at low volumes late at

with Dolby Digital sources only.
• COMP. MAX
The dynamic range is compressed
dramatically.
• COMP. STD
The dynamic range is compressed as
intended by the recording engineer.
• COMP. AUTO
The dynamic range is compressed
automatically.
• COMP. OFF
The dynamic range is not compressed.
Tip
Dynamic range compressor lets you compress the
dynamic range of the soundtrack based on the
dynamic range information included in the Dolby
Digital signal.
“COMP. STD” is the standard setting, but it only
enacts light compression. Therefore, we recommend
using the “COMP. MAX” setting. This greatly
compresses the dynamic range and lets you view
movies late at night at low volumes. Unlike analog
limiters, the levels are predetermined and provide a
very natural compression.

speakers, center speaker, surround speakers
and surround back speakers settings. For
details, see “Selecting a speaker pattern” (page
18).
x FRT SP (Front speakers)
• LARGE
If you connect large speakers that will
effectively reproduce bass frequencies,
select “LARGE”. Normally, select
“LARGE”. However, if you have selected a
speaker pattern without subwoofer, the front
speakers are automatically set to “LARGE”.
• SMALL
If the sound is distorted, or you feel a lack of
surround effects when using multi channel
surround sound, select “SMALL” to activate
the bass redirection circuitry and output the
front channel bass frequencies from the
subwoofer. When the front speakers are set
to “SMALL”, the center and surround
speakers are also automatically set to
“SMALL”.
Tip
• LARGE
If you connect a large speaker that will
effectively reproduce bass frequencies,
select “LARGE”. Normally, select
“LARGE”. However, if the front speakers
are set to “SMALL”, you cannot set the
center speaker to “LARGE”.
• SMALL
If the sound is distorted, or you feel a lack of
surround effects when using multi channel
surround sound, select “SMALL” to activate
the bass redirection circuitry and output the
center channel bass frequencies from the
front speakers (if set to “LARGE”) or
subwoofer.
The “LARGE” and “SMALL” settings for each
speaker determine whether the internal sound
processor will cut the bass signal from that channel.
When the bass is cut from a channel, the bass
redirection circuitry sends the corresponding bass
frequencies to the subwoofer or other “LARGE”
speakers.
However, since bass sounds have a certain amount of
directionality, it is best not to cut them, if possible.
Therefore, even when using small speakers, you can
set them to “LARGE” if you want to output the bass
frequencies from that speaker. On the other hand, if
you are using a large speaker, but prefer not to have
bass frequencies output from that speaker, set it to
“SMALL”.
If the overall sound level is lower than you prefer, set
all speakers to “LARGE”. If there is not enough
bass, you can use the equalizer to boost the bass
levels. For details, see page 52.
x SUR SP (Surround speakers)
The surround back speakers will be set to the
same setting.
• LARGE
If you connect large speakers that will
effectively reproduce bass frequencies,
select “LARGE”. Normally, select
“LARGE”. However, if the front speakers
are set to “SMALL”, you cannot set the
surround speakers to “LARGE”.
• SMALL
If the sound is distorted, or you feel a lack of
surround effects when using multi channel
surround sound, select “SMALL” to activate
the bass redirection circuitry and output the
surround channel bass frequencies from the
subwoofer or other speaker that is set to
“LARGE”.

Tip
The distance between the center speaker and the
listening position B cannot be more than 1.5 meters
closer than the one between the listening position
and the front speaker A. Place the speakers so that
the difference in the length of B in the following
diagram is no more than 1.5 meters closer than the
length of A.
Example: Adjust the distance B to 4.5 meters or
more when the distance A is 6 meters.
Also, the distance between the surround speakers/
surround back speakers and the listening position
C cannot be more than 4.5 meters closer than the
distance between the listening position and the front
speakers A. Place the speakers so that the
difference in the length of C in the following
diagram is no more than 4.5 meters closer than the
length of A.
Example: Adjust the distance C to 1.5 meters or
more when the distance A is 6 meters.
This is important because incorrect speaker
placement is not conductive to the enjoyment of
surround sound. Please note that placing the
speakers closer than the required will cause a delay
in the output of the sound from that speaker. In other
words, the speaker will sound like it is farther away.
Adjusting these parameter while listening to the
sound often results in much better surround sound.
Give it a try!

If you connect a subwoofer
This receiver will generate a low frequency
signal for output to the subwoofer when there
is no LFE signal, which is a low-pass sound
effect output from a subwoofer to a 2 channel
signal. However, the low frequency signal is
not generated for “NEO6 CIN” or “NEO6

Additional Information
Glossary
x Cinema Studio EX
A surround sound mode that can be regarded
as the compilation of Digital Cinema Sound
technology, delivers the sound of a dubbing
theater using three technologies: “Virtual
Multi Dimensions,” “Screen Depth Matching,”
and “Cinema Studio Reverberation.”
“Virtual Multi Dimensions,” the virtual
speaker technology, creates a virtual multisurround environment with actual speakers up
to 7.1 channels, and brings the surround sound
experience of a theater with the latest facilities
into your home.
“Screen Depth Matching” reproduces treble
attenuation, fullness, and depth of sound
usually created in a theater using sound
emission from behind the screen. This is then
added to the front and center channels.
“Cinema Studio Reverberation” reproduces
the sound characteristics of state-of-the-art
dubbing theaters and recording studios,
including Sony Pictures Entertainment’s
dubbing studios. There are three modes, A/B/
C, available according to the studio type.
x Component video
A format for transmitting video signal
information consisting of three separate
signals: luminance Y, chrominance Pb, and
chrominance Pr. High quality pictures, such as
DVD video or HDTV pictures, are transmitted
more faithfully. The three jacks are color coded green, blue and red.
x Composite video
A standard format for transmitting video
signal information. The luminance signal Y
and chrominance signal C are combined and
transmitted together.
88GB
Video signals for which the color depth of
signals passing through an HDMI jack have
been raised.
The number of colors that could be expressed
by 1 pixel was 24 bits (16,777,216 colors) with
the current HDMI jack. However, the number
of colors which can be expressed by 1 pixel
will be 36 bits, etc., when the receiver
corresponds to Deep Color.
Since the gradation of the depth of a color can
be expressed more finely with more bits,
continuous color changes can be more

x Digital Cinema Sound (DCS)
A unique sound reproduction technology for
home theater developed by Sony, in
cooperation with Sony Pictures Entertainment,
for enjoying the exciting and powerful sound
of movie theaters at home. With this “Digital
Cinema Sound” developed by integrating a
DSP (Digital Signal Processor) and measured
data, the ideal sound field intended by
filmmakers can be experienced at home.
x Dolby Digital
Digital audio encoding/decoding technology
developed by Dolby Laboratories, Inc. It
consists of front (left/right), center, surround
(left/right) and subwoofer channels. It is a
designated audio standard for DVD video and
also known as 5.1 channel surround. Since
surround information is recorded and
reproduced in stereo, more realistic sound with
fuller presence is delivered than with Dolby
surround.
x Dolby Digital Plus
Dolby Digital Plus provides the flexibility and
efficiency to deliver more channels of
compelling surround sound for high-definition
video media. Its superior coding efficiencies
enable up to 7.1ch of high-quality
multichannel audio without negatively
impacting bit budgets allocated for video
performance or additional feature sets.
x Dolby Digital Surround EX
x DTS 96/24
Acoustic technology developed by Dolby
Laboratories, Inc. Surround back information
is matrixed into regular left and right surround
channels so that the sound can be reproduced
in 6.1 channel. Active scenes, especially, are
recreated with a more dynamic and realistic
sound field.
A high sound quality digital signal format. It
records audio at a sampling frequency and bit
rate of 96 kHz/24bit which is the highest
possible for DVD video. The number of
playback channels varies depending on the
software.
x DTS Digital Surround
x Dolby Pro Logic II
This technology converts 2 channel stereo
recorded audio into 5.1 channel for playback.
There is a MOVIE mode for movies and
MUSIC mode for stereo sources such as
music. Old movies encoded in the traditional
stereo format can be enhanced with 5.1
channel surround sound.
The GAME mode is suitable for video games.
x Dolby Pro Logic IIx
Technology for 7.1 channel (or 6.1 channel)
playback. Along with audio encoded in Dolby
Digital Surround EX, 5.1 channel Dolby
Digital encoded audio can be reproduced in
7.1 channel (or 6.1 channel). Furthermore,
existing stereo recorded content can also be
reproduced in 7.1 channel (or 6.1 channel).
x Dolby Surround (Dolby Pro
Logic)
x Dolby TrueHD
Dolby TrueHD is Dolby’s lossless audio
technology developed for high-definition
optical discs. Dolby TrueHD audio is bit-forbit identical to the original studio masters and
provides supreme-quality audio up to 8
channel at 96 kHz/24 bit and up to 6ch at
192 kHz/24 bit. Together with high-definition
video, it offers an unprecedented home theater
experience.
x DTS-ES
Format for 6.1 channel playback with
surround back information. There are two
modes, “Discrete 6.1” which records all
channels independently, and “Matrix 6.1”
which matrixes surround back channel into
surround left and surround right channels. It is
ideal for playback of motion picture
soundtracks.
x DTS-HD
Audio format which extends the conventional
DTS Digital Surround format.
This format consists of a core and an
extension, and the core part has DTS Digital
Surround compatibility. There are two kinds of
DTS-HD, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio
and DTS-HD Master Audio. DTS-HD High
Resolution Audio has a maximum
transmission rate of 6 Mbps, with lossy
compression (Lossy), and DTS-HD High
Resolution Audio corresponds to a maximum
sampling frequency of 96 kHz, and a
maximum of 7.1 channel. DTS-HD Master
Audio has a maximum transmission rate of
24.5 Mbps, and uses lossless compression
(Lossless), and DTS-HD Master Audio
corresponds to a maximum sampling
frequency of 192 kHz, and a maximum of
7.1 channel.

Additional Information
Audio processing technology developed by
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. Center and mono
surround information is matrixed into two
stereo channels. When reproduced, audio is
decoded and output in 4 channel surround
sound. This is the most common audio
processing method for DVD video.
Digital audio encoding/decoding technology
for theaters developed by DTS, Inc. It
compresses audio less than Dolby Digital,
delivering a higher quality sound
reproduction.
x DTS Neo:6
x Sampling frequency
This technology converts 2 channel stereo
recorded audio for 6.1 channel playback.
There are two modes to select according to the
playback source or your preference, CINEMA
for movies, and MUSIC for stereo sources
such as music.
To convert analog audio to digital, analog data
should be quantified. This process is called
sampling, and the number of times per second
the analog data is quantified is called the
sampling frequency. A standard music CD
stores data quantified at 44,100 times per
second, which is expressed as a sampling
frequency of 44.1 kHz. Generally speaking, a
higher sampling frequency means better sound
quality.
x HDMI (High-Definition
Multimedia Interface)
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia
Interface) is an interface that supports both
video and audio on a single digital connection,
allowing you to enjoy high quality digital
picture and sound. The HDMI specification
supports HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital
Contents Protection), a copy protection
technology that incorporates coding
technology for digital video signals.
x Neutral THX
Neural-THX Surround is taking surround
sound to the next level. This revolutionary new
technology delivers the rich envelopment and
discrete image detail of surround sound in a
format that is fully compatible with stereo.
Neural-THX Surround reduces the bandwidth
needed for broadcasters to deliver true, multichannel surround presentations, and enables
7.1-channel support for gaming and movies.
By unmasking the audio details, typically lost
by other playback systems, audiences will
experience the deep ambience and subtle
details of movies, music and games. And with
this technology being used by sound designers
during content creation, as well as embedded
into playback devices, Neural-THX Surround
promises a listening experience that is true to
the original mix.
Neural-THX Surround has been chosen as the
official surround sound broadcast format for
XM Satellite Radio’s “XM HD Surround”, as
well as other leading FM/HD radio stations
worldwide.
