Features
0 DTS Virtual:X (v p. 331)
High quality sound
DTS Virtual:X technology features DTS’s proprietary virtual height and
virtual surround processing to deliver an immersive sound experience
from any type of input source (stereo to 7.1.4 channel) and speaker
configuration.
0 Audyssey LFC™ (Low Frequency Containment) (v p. 191)
Audyssey LFC™ solves the problem of low frequency sounds
disturbing people in neighboring rooms or apartments. Audyssey
LFC™ dynamically monitors the audio content and removes the low
frequencies that pass through walls, floors and ceilings. It then applies
psychoacoustic processing to restore the perception of low bass for
listeners in the room. The result is great sound that no longer disturbs
the neighbors.
0 With discrete circuit technology, the power amplifier provides
identical quality for all 13-channels (190 Watts x 13-channels)
For optimum realism and stunning dynamic range, the power amplifier
section features discrete power devices (not integrated circuitry).
By using high current, high power discrete power devices, the amplifier
is able to easily drive high quality speakers.
0 Dolby Atmos (v p. 328)
This unit is equipped with a decoder that supports Dolby Atmos audio
format. The placement or movement of sound is accurately reproduced
by the addition of overhead speakers, enabling you to experience an
incredibly natural and realistic surround sound field.
0 Discrete subwoofers and Audyssey Sub EQ HT™ (v p. 214)
0 DTS:X (v p. 331)
The unit has two subwoofer output capability and can adjust the level
and delay for each subwoofer individually.
Audyssey Sub EQ HT™ makes the integration seamless by first
compensating for any level and delay differences between the two
subwoofers and then applying Audyssey MultEQ® XT32 to both
subwoofers together for improved deep bass response and detail.
This unit is equipped with the DTS:X decoder technology. DTS:X
brings the home theater experience to new heights with its immersive
object based audio technology which removes the bounds of channels.
The flexibility of objects allows for sound to be scaled large or small
and moved around the room with greater accuracy than ever before
leading to a richer immersive audio experience.

0 Denon’s unique high quality playback technology “Denon Link
HD” (v p. 336)
This unit is equipped with our exclusive “Denon Link HD” technology.
When connected to a Denon disc player that has Denon Link HD, the
sound localization becomes more precise, with increased detail and
definition. The system works by carrying the critical clock timing signals
via the dedicated Denon Link HD connection, minimizing the jitter
caused by conventional digital connections. This effect can be applied
to an audio source of any media from a Blu-ray Disc player.
This technology enables the playback of 2-channel source audio or
7.1/5.1 multi-channel source audio through a maximum 11.1-channel
speakers, achieving an even broader soundstage.

About Dolby Atmos Enabled speakers
Dolby Atmos Enabled speakers reflect the sound off the ceiling to allow
the sound to come from over your head by using a special upwardpointing speaker that is placed on the floor.
You can enjoy the Dolby Atmos 3D sound even in an environment where

Before connecting speakers
NOTE
NOTE
0 Disconnect this unit’s power plug from the power outlet before connecting the
speakers. Also, turn off the subwoofer.
0 Connect so that the speaker cable core wires do not protrude from the speaker
terminal. The protection circuit may be activated if the core wires touch the rear
panel or if the + and - sides touch each other. (“Protection circuit” (v p. 336))
0 Never touch the speaker terminals while the power cord is connected. Doing so
could result in electric shock. When the “Setup Assistant” (page 9 in the separate
“Quick Start Guide”) is running, follow the instructions in the “Setup Assistant”
screen for making connections. (Power is not supplied to the speaker terminals
while the “Setup Assistant” is running.)
0 Use speakers with an impedance of 4 – 16 Ω/ohms.
0 Carry out the following settings when using a speaker with an impedance of 4 – 6
Ω/ohms.
1. Press and hold the main unit’s STATUS and ZONE3 SOURCE at the same
time for at least 3 seconds.
“zVideo Format <NTSC>” appears on the display.
2. Use u or i on the main unit three times.
“zSp. Impedance <8ohms>” appears on the display.
3. Use o or p on the main unit to select the impedance.
8ohms
(Default):
Select when the impedance for all of the
connected speakers is 8 Ω/ohms or over.
6ohms:
Select when the impedance for any of the
connected speakers is 6 Ω/ohms.
4ohms:
Select when the impedance for any of the

Bi-amp connection
o 11.1-channel playback (bi-amp connection of front speakers)
This system plays back 11.1-channels. You can use the bi-amp connection for front speakers. Bi-amp connection is a method to connect separate
amplifiers to the tweeter terminal and woofer terminal of a speaker that supports bi-amplification. This connection enables back EMF (power returned
without being output) from the woofer to flow into the tweeter without affecting the sound quality, producing a higher sound quality.

Speakers
The acoustic characteristics of the connected speakers and listening room are measured and the optimum settings are made automatically. This is called
“Audyssey® Setup”.
You do not have to perform Audyssey® Setup when you have already performed “Speaker Calibration” in “Setup Assistant”.
To set up the speakers manually, use “Manual Setup” on the menu. (v p. 224)
Audyssey® Setup
To perform measurement, place the Sound calibration microphone in
multiple locations all around the listening area. For best results, we
recommend you measure in six or more positions, as shown in the
illustration (up to eight positions).
When measuring the second and subsequent positions, install the Sound
calibration microphone within 2 ft (60 cm) of the first measurement position
(main listening position).

o About the main listening position
0 Make the room as quiet as possible. Background noise can disrupt the room
measurements. Close windows and turn off the power on electronic devices
(radios, air conditioners, fluorescent lights, etc.). The measurements could be
affected by the sounds emitted by such devices.
0 During the measurement process, place cell phones outside the listening room.
Cell phone signals could disrupt the measurements.
0 Do not stand between the speakers and Sound calibration microphone or allow
obstacles in the path while the measurements are being made. Also, install the
Sound calibration microphone at least 20 inches (50 cm) away from the wall.
Failure to do so will result in inaccurate readings.
0 During the measurement process, audible test tones will come from the speakers
and subwoofer(s), but this is part of normal operation. If there is background noise
in the room, these test signals will increase in volume.
0 Operating VOLUME d f on the remote control unit or MASTER VOLUME on the
main unit during the measurements will cancel the measurements.
0 Measurement cannot be performed when headphones are connected. Unplug the
headphones before performing Audyssey® Setup.
o About Audyssey Sub EQ HT™
Audyssey Sub EQ HT™ makes the integration of dual subwoofers
seamless by first compensating for any level and delay differences
between the two subwoofers and then applying Audyssey MultEQ®
XT32 to both subwoofers together.
To run Audyssey Sub EQ HT™ you must select “Measure (2 spkrs)” in
“Channel Select”. (v p. 216).

NOTE
The main listening position is the position where listeners would
normally sit or where one would normally sit alone within the listening
environment. Before starting Audyssey® Setup, place the Sound
calibration microphone in the main listening position.
Audyssey MultEQ® XT32 uses the measurements from this position to
calculate speaker distance, level, polarity, and the optimum crossover
value for the subwoofer.

About HDMI
HDMI is an abbreviation of High-Definition Multimedia Interface, which is
an AV digital interface that can be connected to a TV or amplifier.
With the HDMI connection, high definition video and high quality audio
formats adopted by Blu-ray Disc players (Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby
TrueHD, DTS-HD, DTS-HD Master Audio) can be transmitted, which is not
possible with the analog video transmission.
Furthermore, in the HDMI connection, audio and video signals can be
transmitted through a single HDMI cable, while in conventional
connections it is necessary to provide audio and video cables separately
for connection between devices. This allows you to simplify the wiring
configuration that tends to be quite complex in a home theater system.
This unit supports the following HDMI functions.
0 3D
This unit supports input and output of 3D (3 dimensional) video signals
of HDMI. To play back 3D video, you need a TV and player that
provide support for the HDMI 3D function and a pair of 3D glasses.
0 4K
This unit supports input and output of 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) video
signals of HDMI.
0 Content Type
It automatically makes settings suitable for the video output type
(content information).
0 Adobe RGB color, Adobe YCC601 color
0 Deep Color
The color space defined by Adobe Systems Inc. Because it is a wider
color space than RGB, it can produce more vivid and natural images.
An imaging technology supported by HDMI. Unlike RGB or YCbCr,
which uses 8 bits (256 shades) per color, it can use 10 bits (1024
shades), 12 bits (4096 shades), or 16 bits (65536 shades) to produce
colors in higher definition.
Both devices linked via HDMI must support Deep Color.
0 sYCC601 color
Each of these color spaces defines a palette of available colors that is
larger than the traditional RGB color model.
0 x.v.Color
This function lets HDTVs display colors more accurately. It enables
display with natural, vivid colors.
“x.v.Color” is trademark of Sony Corporation.

This function transmits audio signals from the TV to this unit through
the HDMI cable and plays back the audio from the TV on this unit
based on the HDMI Control function.
If a TV without the ARC function is connected via HDMI connections,
video signals of the playback device connected to this unit are
transmitted to the TV, but this unit can not play back the audio from the
TV. If you want to enjoy surround audio for TV program, a separate
audio cable connection is required.
In contrast, if a TV with the ARC function is connected via HDMI
connections, no audio cable connection is required. Audio signals from
the TV can be input to this unit through the HDMI cable between this
unit and the TV. This function allows you to enjoy surround playback
on this unit for the TV.

Explanation of terms
o Audyssey
Audyssey LFC™ (Low Frequency Containment)
Audyssey LFC™ solves the problem of low frequency sounds disturbing
people in neighboring rooms or apartments. Audyssey LFC™ dynamically
monitors the audio content and removes the low frequencies that pass
through walls, floors and ceilings. It then applies psychoacoustic
processing to restore the perception of low bass for listeners in the room.
The result is great sound that no longer disturbs the neighbors.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ®
Audyssey Dynamic EQ® solves the problem of deteriorating sound quality
as volume is decreased by taking into account human perception and
room acoustics.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ® works in tandem with Audyssey MultEQ® XT32
to provide well-balanced sound for every listener at any volume level.
Audyssey MultEQ® XT32
Audyssey Dynamic Volume®
Audyssey MultEQ® XT32 is a room equalization solution that calibrates
any audio system so that it can achieve optimum performance for every
listener in a large listening area. Based on several room measurements,
MultEQ® XT32 calculates an equalization solution that corrects for both
time and frequency response problems in the listening area and also
performs a fully automated surround system setup.
Dynamic Volume solves the problem of large variations in volume level
between television programs, commercials, and between the soft and loud
passages of movies. Audyssey Dynamic EQ® is integrated into Dynamic
Volume so that as the playback volume is adjusted automatically, the
perceived bass response, tonal balance, surround impression, and dialog
clarity remain the same.

Introduced first in the cinema, Dolby Atmos brings a revolutionary sense of
dimension and immersion to the Home Theater experience. Dolby Atmos
is an adaptable and scalable object based format that reproduces audio
as independent sounds (or objects) that can be accurately positioned and
move dynamically throughout the 3 dimensional listening space during
playback. A key ingredient of Dolby Atmos is the introduction of a height
plane of sound above the listener.

Dolby Atmos Stream
Dolby Atmos content will be delivered to your Dolby Atmos Enabled AV
receiver via Dolby Digital Plus or Dolby TrueHD on Blu-ray Disc,
downloadable files and streaming media. A Dolby Atmos stream contains
special metadata that describes the positioning of sounds within the room.
This object audio data is decoded by a Dolby Atmos AV receiver and
scaled for optimum playback through Home Theater speaker systems of
every size and configuration.

Dolby Digital
Dolby Speaker Technology (Dolby Atmos Enabled speakers)
Dolby Digital is a multi-channel digital signal format developed by Dolby
Laboratories.
A total of 5.1-channels are played: 3 front channels (“FL”, “FR” and “C”), 2
surround channels (“SL” and “SR”) and the “LFE” channel for low
frequency effects.
Because of this, there is no crosstalk between channels and a realistic
sound field with a “three-dimensional” feeling (sense of distance,
movement and positioning) is achieved. This delivers a thrilling surround
sound experience in the home.
A convenient alternative to speakers built into the ceiling, Dolby Atmos
Enabled speakers employ the ceiling above you as a reflective surface for
reproducing audio in the height plane above the listener. These speakers
feature a unique upward firing driver and special signal processing. These
features can be built into a conventional speaker or standalone speaker
module. The features minimally impact the overall speaker footprint while
providing an immersive listening experience during Dolby Atmos and
Dolby Surround playback.
Dolby Digital Plus
Dolby TrueHD is a high definition audio technology developed by Dolby
Laboratories, using lossless coding technology to faithfully reproduce the
sound of the studio master.
This format provides the facility to support up to 8 audio channels with a
sampling frequency of 96 kHz/24 bit resolution and up to 6 audio channels
with a sampling frequency of 192 kHz/24 bit resolution.
Dolby TrueHD
Dolby Digital Plus is an improved Dolby Digital signal format that is
compatible with up to 7.1-channels of discrete digital sound and also
improves sound quality thanks to extra data bit rate performance. It is
upwardly compatible with conventional Dolby Digital, so it offers greater
flexibility in response to the source signal and the conditions of the
playback device.
Dolby Surround
Dolby Surround is a next generation surround technology that intelligently
up mixes stereo; 5.1 and 7.1 content for playback through your surround
speaker system. Dolby Surround is compatible with traditional speaker
layouts, as well as Dolby Atmos enabled playback systems that employ inceiling speakers or products with Dolby speaker technology.

frequency. AL32 Processing, thoroughly suppresses quantization noise
associated with D/A conversion to reproduce the low-level signals with
optimum clarity that will bring out all the delicate nuances of the music.
Apple Lossless Audio Codec
This is a codec for lossless audio compression method developed by
Apple Inc. This codec can be played back on iTunes, iPod or iPhone. Data
compressed to approximately 60 – 70 % can be decompressed to exactly
the same original data.
Bass Sync
Audio sources such as BD and DVD inherently have time delay between
the bass components of the satellite channel and the LFE channel. This
function adjusts such a delay for reproducing (replaying) richer bass
sound during playback. This function is by default set to 0 msec. Since the
delay varies according to the title, play back the audio source and adjust to
the most effective value for playback. For some audio sources that are
played back, this function may have little effect.

MPEG (Moving Picture Experts Group), MPEG-2, MPEG-4
These are the names for digital compression format standards used for
the encoding of video and audio. Video standards include “MPEG-1
Video”, “MPEG-2 Video”, “MPEG-4 Visual”, “MPEG-4 AVC”. Audio
standards include “MPEG-1 Audio”, “MPEG-2 Audio”, “MPEG-4 AAC”.
WMA (Windows Media Audio)
This is audio compression technology developed by Microsoft
Corporation.
WMA data can be encoded using Windows Media® Player.
To encode WMA files, only use applications authorized by Microsoft
Corporation. If you use an unauthorized application, the file may not work
properly.
Sampling frequency
LFE
Sampling involves taking a reading of a sound wave (analog signal) at
regular intervals and expressing the height of the wave at each reading in
digitized format (producing a digital signal).
The number of readings taken in one second is called the “sampling
frequency”. The larger the value, the closer the reproduced sound is to the
original.
This is an abbreviation of Low Frequency Effect, which is an output
channel that emphasizes low frequency effect sound. Surround audio is
intensified by outputting 20 Hz to 120 Hz deep bass to the system
subwoofer(s).
MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer-3)
This is an internationally standardized audio data compression scheme,
using the “MPEG-1” video compression standard. It compresses the data
volume to about one eleventh its original size while maintaining sound
quality equivalent to a music CD.

Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos, DTS or DTS-HD sources.
It automatically corrects the standard signal level for individual program
sources.
Progressive (sequential scanning)
This is a scanning system of the video signal that displays 1 frame of video
as one image. Compared to the interlace system, this system provides
images with less flickering and jagged edges.
Dynamic range
The difference between the maximum undistorted sound level and the
minimum discernible level above the noise emitted by the device.
Downmix
This function converts the number of channels of surround audio to a
lower number of channels and plays back according to the system’s
configuration.

WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK (Pre-shared Key)
This is a simple authentication system for mutual authentication when a
preset character string matches on the wireless LAN access point and
client.
AirPlay
AirPlay sends (plays) contents recorded in iTunes or on an iPhone/iPod
touch/iPad to a compatible device via the network.
Network Names (SSID: Service Set Identifier)
WEP Key (network key)
When forming wireless LAN networks, groups are formed to prevent
interference, data theft, etc. These groups are based on “SSID (network
names)”. For enhanced security, a WEP key is set so that communication
is unavailable unless both the “SSID” and the WEP key match. This is
suitable for constructing a simplified network.
This is key information used for encrypting data when conducting data
transfer. On this unit, the same WEP key is used for data encryption and
decryption, so the same WEP key must be set on both devices in order for
communications to be established between them.
Wi-Fi®
Wi-Fi Certification assures tested and proven interoperability by the Wi-Fi
Alliance, a group certifying interoperability among wireless LAN devices.
WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access)
This is a security standard established by the Wi-Fi Alliance. In addition to
the conventional SSID (network name) and WEP key (network key), it also
uses a user identification function and encrypting protocol for stronger
security.
WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2)
This is a new version of the WPA established by the Wi-Fi Alliance,
compatible with more secure AES encryption.

SQLite Copyright
SQLite is in the
Public Domain
0 Copyright (c) 1998 Todd C. Miller <Todd.Miller@courtesan.com>
0 Permission to use, copy, modify, and distribute this software for any
purpose with or without fee is hereby granted, provided that the
above copyright notice and this permission notice appear in all
copies.
0 THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED “AS IS” AND THE AUTHOR
DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES WITH REGARD TO THIS
SOFTWARE INCLUDING ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE
AUTHOR BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, DIRECT, INDIRECT, OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR ANY DAMAGES
WHATSOEVER RESULTING FROM LOSS OF USE, DATA OR
PROFITS, WHETHER IN AN ACTION OF CONTRACT,
NEGLIGENCE OR OTHER TORTIOUS ACTION, ARISING OUT OF
OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OR PERFORMANCE OF
THIS SOFTWARE.
All of the code and documentation in SQLite has been dedicated to the
public domain by the authors. All code authors, and representatives of
the companies they work for, have signed affidavits dedicating their
contributions to the public domain and originals of those signed
affidavits are stored in a firesafe at the main offices of Hwaci. Anyone
is free to copy, modify, publish, use, compile, sell, or distribute the
original SQLite code, either in source code form or as a compiled
binary, for any purpose, commercial or non-commercial, and by any
means.
The previous paragraph applies to the deliverable code and
documentation in SQLite - those parts of the SQLite library that you
actually bundle and ship with a larger application. Some scripts used
as part of the build process (for example the “configure” scripts
generated by autoconf) might fall under other open-source licenses.
Nothing from these build scripts ever reaches the final deliverable
SQLite library, however, and so the licenses associated with those
scripts should not be a factor in assessing your rights to copy and use
the SQLite library.
All of the deliverable code in SQLite has been written from scratch. No
code has been taken from other projects or from the open internet.
Every line of code can be traced back to its original author, and all of
those authors have public domain dedications on file. So the SQLite
code base is clean and is uncontaminated with licensed code from
other projects.
