Introduction to home theater
You are probably used to using stereo equipment to listen to music, but may not be used to home
theater systems that give you many more options (such as surround sound) when listening to
soundtracks.
Home theater refers to the use of multiple audio tracks to create a surround sound effect, making
you feel like you're in the middle of the action or concert. The surround sound you get from a home
theater system depends not only on the speakers you have set up in your room, but also on the
source and the sound settings of the receiver.
DVD-Video has become the basic source material for home theater due to its size, quality, and ease
of use. Depending on the DVD, you can have up to seven different audio tracks coming from one
disc, all of them being sent to different speakers in your system. This is what creates a surround
sound effect and gives you the feeling of ‘being there’.
This receiver will automatically decode Dolby Digital, DTS, or Dolby Surround DVD-Video discs,
according to your speaker setup. In most cases, you won’t have to make changes for realistic
surround sound, but other possibilities (like listening to a CD with multi-channel surround sound)
are explained in Playing sources, starting on page 24.

Listening to Surround Sound
This receiver was designed with the easiest possible setup in mind, so with the following quick
setup guide, you should have your system hooked up for surround sound in no time at all. In most
cases, you can simply leave the receiver in the default settings.
1
Hook up your DVD player.
For surround sound, you’ll want to hook up using a digital connection from the DVD player to the
receiver. You can do this with either a coaxial, or an optical connection (you don’t need to do both). If
you hook up using an optical cable, you should refer to Optical digital input setting on page 32 to
assign the optical input to DVD.
Use a video cord to connect the video output on your DVD to the receiver using the jacks shown
below.
2
Hook up your TV.
Use a video cord to connect your receiver to the TV using the jacks as shown below.

Connect your speakers.
A complete setup of six speakers (including the subwoofer) is shown here, but everyone’s home
setup will vary. Simply connect the speakers you have in the manner shown below. The receiver will
work with just two stereo speakers (the front speakers in the diagram) but using at least three
speakers is recommended, and all six is best. If you’re not using a subwoofer, change the front
speaker setting (see Speaker setting on page 30) to large.
Make sure you connect the speaker on the right to the right terminal and the speaker on the left to
the left terminal. Also make sure the positive and negative (+/–) terminals on the receiver match
those on the speakers.

Connecting digital components
For proper decoding of Dolby Digital/DTS soundtracks, you need to make digital audio connections.
You can do this by either coaxial or optical connections (you don’t need to do both). The quality of
these two types of connections is the same, but since some digital components only have one type
of digital terminal, it is a matter of matching like with like (for example, the coaxial output from the
component to the coaxial input on the receiver). This receiver has both a coaxial and an optical
input for a total of two digital inputs. Connect your digital components as shown below.
When connecting your equipment, always make sure the power is turned off and the power cord is
disconnected from the wall outlet.

components you want to record with, you need to hook up four plugs (a set of stereo ins and a set of
stereo outs), but for components that only play, you only need to hook up one set of stereo ins (two
plugs). You should also hook up your digital components to analog audio jacks if you want to record
to/from digital components (like an MD) to/from analog components. See above for more on digital
connections.

Connecting video components
Connect your video components to the jacks as shown below. Regarding digital video components
(like a DVD player), you must use the connections pictured on this page for the video signal, but in
order to hear a digital source (like a DVD) you should hook up the audio to a digital input (see page
12). It is also a good idea to hook up your digital components with analog audio connections (see
page 12).
For better quality video, you can hook up using the S-video jacks on the rear of the receiver instead
of the regular video jacks (VSX-D511 only). Make sure you use an S-video cable to connect to the Svideo jack on the component you are hooking up (see page 11).

Hints on speaker placement
Speakers are usually designed with a particular placement in mind. Some are designed to be
floorstanding, while others should be placed on stands to sound their best. Some should be placed
near a wall; others should be placed away from walls. We have provided a few tips on getting the
best sound from your speakers (below), but you should also follow the guidelines on placement that
the speaker manufacturer provided with your particular speakers to get the most out of them.
• Place the front left and right speakers at
equal distances from the TV.
• When placing speakers near the TV, we
recommend using magnetically shielded
speakers to prevent possible interference,
such as discoloration of the picture when
the TV is switched on. If you do not have
magnetically shielded speakers and notice
discoloration of the TV picture, move the
speakers farther away from the TV.
• To achieve the best possible surround
sound, install your speakers as shown
below. Be sure all speakers are installed
securely to prevent accidents and improve
sound quality.

Center
• Place the center speaker above or below the
TV so that the sound of the center channel is
localized at the TV screen.
Subwoofer
Surround
Left
If you choose to install the center speaker
on top of the TV, be sure to secure it with
putty, or by other suitable means, to
reduce the risk of damage or injury
resulting from the speaker falling from
the TV in the event of external shocks
such as earthquakes.

Listening Position
3-D view of speaker set up
• If possible, place the surround speakers
slightly above ear level.
• Try not to place the surround speakers
further away from the listening position than
the front and center speakers. Doing so can
weaken the surround sound effect.

• This unit should be disconnected by removing the power plug from the wall socket when not in
regular use (ex. when on vacation).
POWER-CORD CAUTION
Handle the power cord by the plug. Do not pull out the plug by tugging the cord and never touch the
power cord when your hands are wet as this could cause a short circuit or an electric shock. Do not
place the unit, a piece of furniture, etc., on the power cord, or pinch the cord. Never make a knot in
the cord or tie it with other cords. The power cords should be routed such that they are not likely to
be stepped on. A damaged power cord can cause a fire or give you an electrical shock. Check the
power cord once in a while. When you find it damaged, ask your nearest Pioneer authorized service
center or your dealer for a replacement.

Introduction to Sound Modes
There are three basic sound options: Stereo/
Direct, Standard or Advanced Surround.
Stereo/Direct
When you select STEREO or DIRECT, you will
hear the source through just the front left and
right speakers (and possibly your subwoofer
depending on your speaker settings). Dolby
Digital and DTS multi-channel sources are
downmixed to stereo.
In STEREO, the audio plays according to the
surround setup settings and you can still use
Midnight mode, Loudness mode and Tone
Control functions.
When you select DIRECT, the audio bypasses
the tone controls and channel levels for the
most accurate reproduction of a source.
Standard modes
The Standard mode can be used to decode
Dolby Digital, DTS or Dolby Surround sources.
The surround mode options (below) can also
add surround sound to regular stereo sources.
You can identify Dolby Digital software by the
marks. Most Dolby
1 or
Surround software is marked 3, but
unmarked software may also incorporate Dolby
Surround.
Choose one of the following to add depth to a 2
channel source:
Pro Logic
This mode gives 4.1 channel surround sound. It
is less sensitive to the quality of the source
material, so may be useful when Pro Logic II
Movie/ Music modes do not give good results.
24
En
Pro Logic II Movie
This mode gives 5.1 channel surround sound. It
is suitable for movies, especially those recorded
in Dolby Surround. The channel separation and
movement of surround effects is comparable to
Dolby Digital 5.1.
Pro Logic II Music
This mode gives 5.1 channel surround sound
and is suitable for music. Compared to Pro
Logic II Movie, the surround effect is more
enveloping.
Advanced Surround modes
These are designed to be used with multi
channel surround sound audio/visual sources
(like DVDs and LDs). Most Advanced Surround
modes are designed to be used with film
soundtracks, but some modes are also suited
for music sources. Try different settings with
various soundtracks to see which you like.
Movie
Simulates the relaxed environment of a movie
theater, and is suitable for watching movies on
sources marked 1 (
) or
.
Music
Simulates the acoustic environment of a large
concert hall and is suitable for music or
musical sources marked 1 (
) or
.
Virtual Surround Back (VIRTL SB)
(VSX-D511 only)
The Virtual Surround Back effect simulates 6.1
surround channel listening, giving the impression that there is a surround back speaker in
your system when listening to a 5.1 channel
source.
Playing sources
05
Expanded
This mode is especially designed to give sound
depth to stereo sources. The overall effect
builds a dynamic and broad sound space,
allowing two-channel (stereo) signals to imitate
a five speaker sound. Use with Dolby Pro Logic
for a stereo surround effect. You can also use
with Dolby Digital sources for a wider stereo
field than the Standard modes.
5-Channel Stereo
This can be selected to give multi-channel
sound to a stereo source, using all the speakers
in your setup.
Choosing the input signal
You need to hook up a component to both
analog and digital inputs on the back of the
receiver to select between input signals.

Setting up the receiver
Choosing your receiver setup
Even though you may already have your system
up and running after using the 5 minute guide
on pages 6 to 10, you should also be sure to
complete the following set up operations to
ensure the best possible surround sound. This
is particularly important when using Dolby
surround. You only need to make these settings
once (unless you change the placement of your
current speaker system or add new speakers,
etc.). Refer to the following pages for details on
each of the settings.
If you are using the Pioneer S-FCRW220
speaker system, you’ll have to set the
Crossover frequency to 200kHz. You can
leave the Speaker setting and the
Subwoofer setting in the default settings.

or not. Use the plus (PLS) setting for extra bass.
Speaker setting
• Default setting: S (all speakers)
You must let the receiver know how many
speakers you have, and how big they are. The
size you choose (large or small) determines
how much bass is sent from the receiver to the
speakers.
In the display, F, C, and S refer to front, center,
and surround speakers respectively. Speaker
size is denoted as L for large speakers, S for
small speakers, and (asterisk) if no speaker is

• When you select the plus setting, you will
get the bass sounds from the subwoofer
even if the front speakers are set to L.
Crossover frequency setting
• Default setting: 100 Hz
Crossover frequency is the point where the
receiver divides the high and low sounds (the
frequencies) between the speakers. Since most
smaller speakers can’t handle deep bass tones,
you can send these sounds to the subwoofer (or
if you don’t have a subwoofer, the large (L)
speakers in your system) instead of the
speakers set to small (S) in your setup. Choose
the point at which you want the frequency
routed to the subwoofer (or L speakers).

Center speaker distance setting
•
Default setting: 10 ft.
The center speaker is normally placed directly
in the front of the listening room and closer to
the listening position than the front speakers.
This means that the sound from the center
speaker will be heard before the front speakers.
To prevent this, set the center speaker distance
setting to delay the sound from the center
speaker so that the sound from the front and
center speakers will be heard at the same time.

memorize up to 30 stations, stored in three
banks, or classes, (A, B and C) of 10 stations
each. When saving an FM frequency, the MPX

recording
You can make an audio or a video recording
from the built-in tuner, or from an audio or video
source connected to the receiver (such as a CD
player or TV) through the analog jacks. You will
need to connect a CD recorder, tape deck, MD,
VCR, or DVR deck to the CD-R/TAPE/MD or
VCR/DVR outputs on the receiver to do so (see
pages 12–14 for more on this).

You can listen to (monitor) the recording as it's
being made using the MONITOR button on the
front panel (a cassette deck would have to have
a record monitor function).

between the recorded signal and the
original source signal.
The receiver's volume, balance, tone (bass,
treble, loudness), and surround effects
have no effect on the recorded signal.
