Enjoying stereoscopic sound fields (CINEMA DSP 3D)
The unit is equipped with a variety of sound programs that utilize Yamaha's original
DSP technology (CINEMA DSP 3D). It allows you to easily create sound fields like
actual movie theaters or concert halls in your room and enjoy natural stereoscopic
sound fields.
Drama
This program features stable reverberations that match a wide range of
movie genres, from serious dramas to musicals and comedies. The
reverberations are modest, but suitably stereophonic. The sound effects
and background music are reproduced with a gentle echo that does not
impinge on the articulation of the dialogue. You’ll never get tired listening
for long periods.
Mono Movie
This program reproduces monaural video sources, such as classic
movies, in an atmosphere of a good old movie theater. The program
creates a pleasant space with depth, by adding breadth and the
appropriate reverberation to the original audio.
Sports
This program allows listeners to enjoy the rich vividness of sport
broadcasts and light entertainment programs. In sports broadcasts, the
commentators’ voices are positioned clearly at the center, while the
atmosphere inside the stadium is realistically conveyed by the peripheral
delivery of the sounds of the fans in a suitable space.
Action Game
This program is suitable for action games, such as car racing and
fighting games. The reality of, and emphasis on, various effects makes
the player feel like they are right in the middle of the action, allowing for
greater concentration. Use this program in combination with Compressed
Music Enhancer for a more dynamic and strong sound field.
Roleplaying Game
This program is suitable for role-playing and adventure games. This
program adds depth to the sound field for natural and realistic
reproduction of background music, special effects, and dialogue from a
wide variety of scenes. Use this program in combination with
Compressed Music Enhancer for a clearer and more spatial sound field.

n Sound programs suitable for movies (MOVIE)
The following sound programs are optimized for viewing video sources, such as
movies, TV programs, and games.
Standard
This program creates a sound field that emphasizes the surround feeling
without disturbing the original acoustic positioning of multichannel audio,
such as Dolby Digital and DTS. Its design is based on the concept of the
ideal movie theater, in which the audience is surrounded by beautiful
reverberations from the left, right, and rear.
Spectacle
This program delivers the scale and grandeur of spectacular movie
productions. It delivers an expansive sound space to match the
cinemascope wide-screen, and boasts a broad dynamic range,
providing everything from small delicate sounds to powerful loud booms.
Sci-Fi
This program clearly reproduces the finely elaborated sound design of
the latest Sci-Fi and SFX movies. You can enjoy a variety of
cinematographically created virtual spaces reproduced with clear
separation between dialogue, sound effects, and background music.
Adventure
This program is ideal for reproducing the sound design of action and
adventure movies precisely. The sound field restrains reverberations, but
puts emphasis on reproducing a sensation of expansiveness on both
sides, powerful space expanded widely to the left and right. The
restrained depth creates a clear and powerful space, while also
maintaining the articulation of the sounds and the separation of the
channels.

n Sound programs suitable for music (MUSIC)
n Sound programs suitable for stereo playback (STEREO)
The following sound programs are optimized for listening to music sources.
You can select stereo playback.
Hall in Munich
This program simulates a Munich concert hall with approximately 2,500
seats that uses stylish wood for the interior finishing. Fine, beautiful
reverberations spread richly, creating a calming atmosphere. The
listener’s virtual seat is at the center left of the arena.
Hall in Vienna
This program simulates a 1700-seat, middle-sized concert hall with a
shoebox shape that is traditional in Vienna. Pillars and ornate carvings
create extremely complex reverberations from all around the audience,
producing a very full, rich sound.
Chamber
This program creates a relatively wide space with a high ceiling, like an
audience hall in a palace. It offers pleasant reverberations that are
suitable for courtly music and chamber music.
Cellar Club
This program simulates an intimate concert venue with a low ceiling and
homey atmosphere. A realistic, live sound field delivers powerful sounds
that make you feel as if you are sitting in the front row in front of a small
stage.
The Roxy Theatre
This program creates the sound field of a 460-seat rock music concert
venue in Los Angeles. The listener’s virtual seat is at the center left of the
hall.
The Bottom Line
This program creates the sound field at stage front in The Bottom Line, a
famous New York jazz club once. The floor can seat 300 people to the
left and right in a sound field offering real and vibrant sound.
Music Video
This program allows you to enjoy videos of pop, rock, and jazz concerts,
as if you were there yourself. Immerse yourself in the hot concert
atmosphere thanks to the vividness of the singers and solos on stage, a
presence sound field that emphasizes the beat of rhythm instruments,
and a surround sound field that reproduces the space of a big live hall.
2ch Stereo
Use this program to mix down multichannel sources to 2 channels. When
multichannel signals are input, they are down mixed to 2 channels and
output from the front speakers (this program does not utilize CINEMA
DSP).
5ch Stereo
Use this program to output sound from all speakers. When you play back
multichannel sources, the unit mixes down the source to 2 channels, and
then outputs the sound from all speakers. This program creates a larger
sound field and is ideal for background music at parties.
Note
CINEMA DSP 3D (p.46) and Virtual CINEMA DSP (p.47) do not work when “2ch Stereo” or “5ch Stereo” is
selected.
n Enjoying sound field effects without surround speakers
(Virtual CINEMA DSP)
If you select one of the sound programs (except 2ch Stereo and 5ch Stereo) when no
surround speakers are connected, the unit automatically creates the surround sound
field using the front-side speakers.
n Enjoying surround sound with 5 speakers placed in
front (Virtual CINEMA FRONT)
You can enjoy the surround sound even when the surround speakers are placed in
front.
n Enjoying surround sound with headphones (SILENT
CINEMA)
You can enjoy surround or sound field effects, like a multichannel speaker system, with
stereo headphones by connecting the headphones to the PHONES jack and selecting
a sound program or a surround decoder.

n Playing back 2-channel sources in multichannel
Enjoying unprocessed playback
(surround decoder)
You can play back input sources without any sound field effect processing.
The surround decoder enables unprocessed multichannel playback from 2-channel
sources. When a multichannel source is input, it works the same way as the straight
decode mode.
n Playing back in original channels (straight decode)
When the straight decode mode is enabled, the unit produces stereo sound from the
front speakers for 2-channel sources such as CDs, and produces unprocessed
multichannel sounds for multichannel sources.

Connecting Zone B speakers
For example, you can turn on Zone A (turn off Zone B) when you are in the living room,
and turn on Zone B (turn off Zone A) when you are in the study room. Also, you can
turn on both zones when you want to enjoy the same input source in those rooms
simultaneously.
Connect the device that will be used in Zone B to the unit.
Notice
▪ Remove the unit’s power cable from the AC wall outlet before connecting speakers.
▪ Ensure that the core wires of the speaker cable do not touch one another or come into contact with the
unit’s metal parts. Doing so may damage the unit or the speakers. If the speaker cables short circuit,
“Check SP Wires” will appear on the front display when the unit is turned on.

Frequently asked questions
I want to change the input source name...
The frequently asked questions from customers and the answers are shown below.
The new speaker system does not provide an ideal sound balance...
If you have changed speakers or have a new speaker system, use YPAO to optimize
the speaker settings again (p.29). If you want to adjust the speaker settings manually,
use “Speaker” in the “Setup” menu (p.90).
We want to set limitations on the volume control...
By default, input source names (such as “HDMI1” and “AV 1”) are displayed on the
front display when an input source is selected. If you want to rename them as you like,
use “Input Rename” (p.99) in the “Setup” menu. You can also select a name from the
presets (such as “Blu-ray” and “DVD”).
I want to prevent accidental changes to the settings...
You can protect the settings configured on the unit (such as speaker settings) by
utilizing “Memory Guard” in the “Setup” menu (p.100).
If someone accidentally operates the controls on the main unit or remote control, the
volume may suddenly increase. This may also cause injury or damage the unit or
speakers. We recommend using “Max Volume” in the “Setup” menu to set the
maximum volume level for the unit in advance (p.97).
The unit’s remote control is simultaneously controlling another Yamaha
product as well as the unit...
When using multiple Yamaha products, the remote control may work on another
Yamaha product or another remote control may work on the unit. If this happens,
register different remote control IDs for the devices that you want to control with each
remote control (p.107).
I want to fix the volume when turning on the unit...
By default, the volume level when the unit last entered standby mode is automatically
applied. If you want to fix the volume, use “Initial Volume” in the “Setup” menu to set
the volume to be applied when the receiver is turned on (p.97).
I want to enjoy videos/audio played back on the video device even when
the unit is in standby mode…
The volume varies depending on the input sources...
You can correct volume differences between input sources by utilizing “Input Trim” in
the “Option” menu (p.85).
If you have connected a video device to the unit with HDMI, you can output videos/
audio played back on the video device to the TV even when the unit is in standby
mode. To use this function, set “Standby Through” (p.93) in the “Setup” menu to “On”
or “Auto”. You can also switch the input source using the remote control of the unit
when this function is enabled.
HDMI Control does not work at all...
To use HDMI Control, you need to perform the HDMI Control link setup (p.124). After
connecting HDMI Control-compatible devices (such as BD/DVD players) to the unit,
enable HDMI Control on each device and perform the HDMI Control link setup. This
setup is required every time you add a new HDMI Control-compatible device to your
system. For information on how HDMI Control works between your TV and playback
devices, refer to the instruction manuals for each device.
The combination of video/audio input jacks does not match an external
device...
Use “Audio In” in the “Option” menu to change the combination of video/audio input
jacks so that it matches the output jack(s) of your external device (p.23).
Video and audio are not synchronized...
Use “Lipsync” in the “Setup” menu to adjust the delay between video and audio output
(p.96).

En
I want to hear audio from the TV speakers...
Use “Audio Output” in the “Setup” menu to select the output destination of signals
input into the unit (p.93). Your TV speakers may be selected as an output destination.
I want to change the on-screen menu language...
Use “Language” in the “Setup” menu to select a language from English, Japanese,
French, German, Spanish, Russian, Italian and Chinese (p.28).

audio. This format remains fully compatible with the existing multichannel audio systems that
support DTS Digital Surround. This technology is used for music DVDs, etc.
One of the compressed digital audio format used by MPEG. With psychoacoustic technologies,
this compression method achieves a high compression rate. Reportedly, it is capable of
compressing data quantity by about 1/10 maintaining a certain level of audio quality.
MPEG-4 AAC
An MPEG-4 audio standard. It is used for mobile telephones, portable audio players, and audio
streaming services on Internet because it allows a high compression rate of data while
maintaining better audio quality than MP3.
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation)
PCM is a signal format under which an analog audio signal is digitized, recorded, and transmitted.
This technology is the basis of all other audio format. This technology is used as a lossless audio
format called Linear PCM for audio on a variety of media, including CDs and BD (Blu-ray Disc).
DTS Digital Surround
DTS Digital Surround is a compressed digital audio format developed by DTS, Inc. that supports
5.1-channel audio. This technology is used for audio on most DVD discs.
Sampling frequency/Quantization bit

higher compression rate than the DTS Digital Surround format developed by DTS, Inc. This
technology is developed for audio streaming services on the Internet and secondary audio on BD
(Blu-ray Disc).
DTS-HD High Resolution Audio
Sampling frequency and quantization bits indicate the quantity of information when an analog
audio signal is digitized. These values are noted as in the following example: “48 kHz/24-bit”.
• Sampling frequency
Sampling frequency (the number of times the signal is sampled per second) is called the
sampling rate. When the sampling frequency is higher, the range of frequencies that can be
played back are wider.
• Quantization bit
The number of quantization bits indicate the degree of accuracy when converting the sound
level into a numeric value. When the number of quantized bits is higher, the expression of the
sound level is more accurate.
DTS-HD High Resolution Audio is a compressed digital audio format developed by DTS, Inc. that
supports 7.1-channel and 96 kHz/24-bit audio. DTS-HD High Resolution Audio remains fully
compatible with the existing multichannel audio systems that support DTS Digital Surround. This
technology is used for audio on most BD (Blu-ray Disc).

En
WAV
x.v.Color
Windows standard audio file format, which defines the method of recording the digital data
obtained by converting audio signals. By default, the PCM method (no compression) is used, but
you can also use other compression methods.
“x.v.Color” is a technology that the HDMI specification supports. It is a more extensive color
space than sRGB and allows the expression of colors that were not hitherto possible. While
remaining compatible with the color gamut of sRGB standards, “x.v.Color” expands the color
space, and thus can produce more vivid, natural images.
WMA (Windows Media Audio)
One of the compressed digital audio formats developed by Microsoft Corporation. With
psychoacoustic technologies, this compression method achieves a high compression rate.
Reportedly, it is capable of compressing data quantity by about 1/20 maintaining a certain level of
audio quality.
Network information
SSID
n Others
SSID (Service Set Identifier) is a name that identifies a particular wireless LAN access point.
Bi-amplification connection (Bi-amp)
Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity) is a technology that allows an electronic device to exchange data or
connect to the Internet wirelessly using radio waves. Wi-Fi offers the advantage of eliminating the
complexity of making connections with LAN cables by using wireless connection. Only products
that complete Wi-Fi Alliance interoperability tests can carry the “Wi-Fi Certified” trademark.
Wi-Fi
A bi-amplification connection uses two amplifiers for a speaker. When you use the bi-amplification
connection, the unit drives the tweeter and woofer in a speaker with the discrete amplifiers. As a
consequence, the tweeter and woofer provide clear audio signal without the interference.
LFE (Low Frequency Effects) 0.1 channel
WPS
This channel reproduces low-frequency bass signals and has a frequency range from 20 Hz to
120 Hz. This channel is added to the channels for all bands with Dolby Digital or DTS to enhance
low frequency audio effects. This channel is labeled 0.1 because it is limited to only low frequency
audio.
WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) is a standard established by the Wi-Fi Alliance, which allows easy
establishment of a wireless home network.
Lip sync
Video output sometimes lags behind audio output due to the complexity of signal processing
caused by an increase in video signal capacity. Lip sync is a technique for automatically
correcting the timing lag between audio and video output.
Yamaha technologies
CINEMA DSP (Digital Sound Field Processor)
Since the Dolby Surround and DTS systems were originally designed for use in movie theaters,
their effect is best experienced in a theater that has many speakers designed for acoustic effects.
Since home conditions (such as room size, wall material, and number of speakers) can differ so
widely, it is inevitable that there are differences in the sound that you hear. Based on a wealth of
actually measured data, CINEMA DSP, Yamaha’s original DSP technology provides the
audiovisual experience of a movie theater in your own home.
HDMI and video information
Composite video signal
CINEMA DSP 3D
With the composite video signal system, color, brightness, and synchronization data signals are
combined and transmitted with a single cable.
Deep Color
Deep Color is a technology that HDMI specification supports. Deep Color increases the number of
available colors within the boundaries defined by the RGB or YCbCr color space. Conventional
color systems process the color using 8 bits. Deep Color processes the color with 10, 12, or 16
bits. This technology allows HDTVs and other displays to increase from millions of colors to
billions of colors and eliminate on-screen color banding for smooth tonal transitions and subtle
gradations between colors.
HDMI
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the world-wide standard interface for digital audio/
video signal transmission. This interface transmits both digital audio and digital video signals
using a single cable without any loss. HDMI complies with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content
Protection) and provides a secure audio/video interface. For further information on HDMI, visit the
HDMI website at “http://www.hdmi.org/”.
121
The actually measured sound field data contain the information of the height of the sound images.
CINEMA DSP 3D mode achieves the reproduction of the accurate height of the sound images so
that it creates the accurate and intensive 3D sound fields in a listening room.
Compressed Music Enhancer
The Compressed Music Enhancer feature compensates for missing harmonics in compression
music formats (such as MP3). As a result, this technology provides improved performance for the
overall sound system.
SILENT CINEMA
Yamaha has developed a natural, realistic sound effect DSP algorithm for headphones.
Parameters for headphones have been set for each sound program, so that accurate
representations of all the sound programs can be enjoyed on headphones.
Virtual CINEMA DSP
Virtual CINEMA DSP allows the system to virtually reproduce the sound field of the surround
speakers with front left and right speakers. Even if the surround speakers are not connected, the
unit creates the realistic sound field in a listening room.
En
Virtual Presence Speaker (VPS)
Virtual Presence Speaker allows the system to virtually reproduce the height of the 3D sound field
without front presence speakers. Even if the front presence speakers are not connected, the unit
creates the 3D sound field in your room.
