1: Installing speakers
To fully enjoy theater-like multi channel
surround sound requires five speakers (two
front speakers, a center speaker, and two
surround speakers) and a sub woofer (5.1
channel).
Example of a 5.1 channel
speaker system configuration
Installing the speakers on a flat
surface
Before you install the speakers and sub
woofer, be sure to attach the supplied foot pads
to prevent vibration or movement as shown in
the illustration below.
Installing the speakers on the
speaker stand
For greater flexibility in positioning the
speakers, use the optional WS-FV11 speaker
stand (available only in certain countries). For
details, refer to the operating instructions
supplied with the speaker stand

fasten them to the wall. Install the speakers on a
vertical and flat wall where reinforcement is
applied.
• Contact a screw shop or installer regarding the wall
material or screws to be used.

This receiver is equipped with D.C.A.C.
(Digital Cinema Auto Calibration)
Technology which allows you to perform
automatic calibration as follows:
• Check the connection between each speaker
and the receiver.
• Adjust the speaker level.
• Measure the distance of each speaker to your
listening position.
You can also adjust the speaker levels and
balance manually. For details, see
“8: Adjusting the speaker levels and balance
(TEST TONE)” (page 33).
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. 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.
1
Connect the supplied optimizer
microphone to the AUTO CAL
MIC jack on the front panel.
2
Set up the optimizer microphone.
Place the optimizer microphone at your
listening position. Use a stool or tripod so
that the optimizer microphone remains at
the same height as your ears.
Tip
When you face the speaker towards the optimizer
microphone, you will get a more accurate
measurement.

Tips
• When Auto Calibration starts:
– Stand some distance from the speakers and the
listening position to avoid measurement failure.
This is because test signals are output from the
speakers during measurement.
– Avoid making noise to get a more accurate
measurement.
• The Auto Calibration function will be canceled
when you do the following during the
measurement process:
– Press ?/1, input buttons or MUTING.

• COMP. OFF
The dynamic range is not compressed.
• COMP. STD
The dynamic range is compressed as
intended by the recording engineer.
• COMP. MAX
The dynamic range is compressed
dramatically.
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.

x CNT DIST. (Center speaker

Lets you set the distance from your listening

Surround right speaker distance should be set
from a distance equal to the front speaker
distance (A) to a distance 15 feet closer to
your listening position (D).
Tip
The receiver lets you to input the speaker position in
terms of distance. However, it is not possible to set
the center speaker further than the front speakers.
Also, the center speaker cannot be set more than 5
feet closer from the front speakers.
Likewise, the surround speakers can not be set
further away from the listening position than the
front speakers. And they can be no more than 15 feet
closer. This is because incorrect speaker placement
is not conducive to the enjoyment of surround
sound.
Please note that, setting the speaker distance closer
than the actual location of the speakers will cause a
delay in the output of the sound from that speaker. In
other words, the speaker will sound like it is further
away.
For example, setting the center speaker distance 3-6
feet closer than the actual speaker position will
create a fairly realistic sensation of being “inside”
the screen. If you cannot obtain a satisfactory
surround effect because the surround speakers are
too close, setting the surround speaker distance
closer (shorter) than the actual distance will create a
larger sound stage.
Adjusting these parameter while listening to the
sound often results in much better surround sound.
Give it a try!
Lets you set the distance from your listening
position to the center speaker. Center speaker
distance should be set from a distance equal to
the front speaker distance (A) to a distance 5
feet closer to your listening position (B).

(Surround speaker position)
Lets you specify the location of your surround
speakers for proper implementation of the
surround effects in the Cinema Studio EX
modes (page 50).
masterpage: Left
Tip
Surround speaker position is designed specifically
for implementation of the Cinema Studio EX modes.
For other sound fields, speaker position is not so
critical.
Those sound fields were designed under the premise
that the surround speakers would be located behind
the listening position, but presentation remains
fairly consistent even with the surround speakers
positioned at a rather wide angle. However, if the
speakers are pointing toward the listener from the
immediate left and right of the listening position, the
surround effects become unclear unless set to
“SIDE/LO” or “SIDE/HI”.
Nevertheless, each listening environment has many
variables, such as wall reflections, and you may
obtain better results using “BEHD/HI” if your
speakers are located high above the listening
position, even if they are located to the immediate
left and right.
Therefore, although it may result in a setting
contrary to the above explanation, we recommend
that you playback multi channel surround encoded
software and select the setting that provides a good
sense of spaciousness and that best succeeds in
forming a cohesive space between the surround
sound from the surround speakers and the sound of
the front speakers. If you are not sure which sounds
best, select “BEHD/LO” or “BEHD/HI” and then
use the speaker distance parameter and speaker level
adjustments to obtain proper balance.

display)

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.
x Dolby Surround (Dolby Pro
Logic)
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 4ch surround sound.
This is the most common audio processing
method for DVD-video.
x DTS Digital Surround
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 HDMI (High-Definition
Multimedia Interface)
HDMI is an interface that support both video
and audio on a single digital connection. The
HDMI connection carries standard to high
definition video signals and multi-channel
audio signals to audio video components, such
as HDMI equipped TVs, in digital form
without degradation. The HDMI specification
supports HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital
Contents Protection), a copy protection
technology that incorporates coding
technology for digital video signals.
x Sampling frequency
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.

Additional Information
Digital audio encoding/decoding technology
developed by Dolby Laboratories, Inc. It
consists of front (left/right), center, surround
(left/right) and sub woofer 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.

Precautions
On safety
Should any solid object or liquid fall into the
cabinet, unplug the receiver and have it
checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
On power sources
• Before operating the receiver, check that the
operating voltage is identical with your local
power supply.
The operating voltage is indicated on the
nameplate on the back of the receiver.
• The unit is not disconnected from the AC
power source (mains) as long as it is
connected to the wall outlet, even if the unit
itself has been turned off.
• If you are not going to use the receiver for a
long time, be sure to disconnect the receiver
from the wall outlet. To disconnect the AC
power cord, grasp the plug itself; never pull
the cord.
• One blade of the plug is wider than the other
for the purpose of safety and will fit into the
wall outlet only one way. If you are unable
to insert the plug fully into the outlet, contact
your dealer.
• The AC power cord must be changed only at
a qualified service shop.
On heat buildup
Although the receiver heats up during
operation, this is not a malfunction. If you
continuously use this receiver at a large
volume, the cabinet temperature of the top,
side and bottom rises considerably. To avoid
burning yourself, do not touch the cabinet.
• Place the receiver in a location with
adequate ventilation to prevent heat buildup
and prolong the life of the receiver.
• Do not place the receiver near heat sources,
or in a place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust, or mechanical shock.
• Do not place anything on top of the cabinet
that might block the ventilation holes and
cause malfunctions.
• Do not place the receiver near equipment
such as a television, VCR, or tape deck. (If
the receiver is being used in combination
with a television, VCR, or tape deck, and is
placed too close to that equipment, noise
may result, and picture quality may suffer.
This is especially likely when using an
indoor antenna. Therefore, we recommend
using an outdoor antenna.)
• Use caution when placing the receiver or
speakers on surfaces that have been
specially treated (with wax, oil, polish, etc.)
as staining or discoloration of the surface
may result.
On operation
Before connecting other components, be sure
to turn off and unplug the receiver.
If you encounter color
irregularity on a nearby TV
screen
The front and center speakers and the sub
woofer are magnetically shielded to allow it to
be installed near a TV set. However, color
irregularities may still be observed on certain
types of TV sets.
As the surround speakers are not magnetically
shielded, we recommend that you place the
surround speakers slightly further away from
the TV set (page 14).
If color irregularity is
observed...
Turn off the TV set, then turn it on again after
15 to 30 minutes.

If color irregularity is observed
again...
Place the speaker further away from the TV
set.
If howling occurs
Reposition the speakers or turn down the
volume on the receiver.
