Surround guide
You are able tó enjoy this surround system with this receiver.
Surround system
Dolby Pro Logic is a decoding system that was
developed to get a better sense of presence from
sources encoded with Dolby Surround. The
feeling of position has been improved by the
addition of a separate center speaker channel.
Dolby Surround was developed to allow
enjoyment of Dolby Stereo, a cinema system, in
private homes. This system reproduces sound
close to that of the original movie through use of
an analog matrix.
This unit has two types of Dolby Pro Logic.
+ SURROUND: the surround speakers are
used.
* 3 STEREO: the surround speakers are not
used.

Enjoying RDS broadcasts
RDS (Radio data system) is a multiplex broadcasting system.
Along with the audio signals of FM broadcasts, text information
and other signals are transmitted to help you enjoy radio more and
make tuning into programs easier. This unit can use the following
types of signals.
- PS (Program service):
The name of the station can be dispiayed.
« PTY (Program type):
The type of program can be displayed. This signal can also be
used to search for a type of program (= page 26). See page 28
for more information about the PTY displays.
« EON (Enhanced other networks):
This signal is used between networked stations to make it easier
for listeners to tune in to a type of program (= page 27).
* RT (Radio text):
This is text transmitted by the station. This unit can show a
maximum of 64 characters by scrolling it across the screen. The
text could be information about the song playing, traffic and
weather reports, phone-in numbers, or police information.
Some areas do not currently have PTY, EON, and RT.
To display RDS information
The display normally shows the radio frequency. When the “RDS”
indicator lights, the station is broadcasting RDS signals.
Press [DISPLAY MODE].
Each time the button is pressed, the display changes as follows.
