■ Digital Sound Fields (DSP)
Technological advances in sound reproduction over the last 30 years have enhanced the listening experience with improved clarity, precision,
and power. However, something has been missing: the atmosphere and acoustic ambience of the public venue. Our Yamaha engineers have
extensively researched the nature of sound acoustics and the way sound reflects inside a room. We sent these engineers to famous theaters
and concert halls around the world to measure the acoustics of those venues with sophisticated microphones. The data they collected is used
to recreate these environments in digital sound fields. Some of these digital sound fields have been created using data measured at the
original venue; others have been created from combinations of data to form unique environments for specific purposes. Some have been
designed especially for music, and others especially for movies. Of course, this only solves half of the problem. Because these engineers have
no way of knowing the acoustics of your entertainment room, we have made it possible for you to adjust the various parameters of this data
to tailor each virtual venue to your taste. You can use these sound fields to enhance any source and in combination with any of the following
surround sound technologies.
■ CINEMA-DSP: Dolby Digital + DSP and DTS + DSP
The Dolby Digital system and DTS system show their full capability in large movie theaters, because feature film soundtracks are designed
to be reproduced in such environments. It is difficult to recreate a sound environment similar to a movie theater in your entertainment room
because of the room size, wall materials, and the number of speakers in your entertainment system. Yamaha DSP technology makes it
possible for you to enjoy nearly the same sound experience as that of a large movie theater in your entertainment room by compensating for
lack of presence and dynamics in your entertainment room with Yamaha's original digital sound fields combined with Dolby Digital or DTS
soundtracks.
■ Virtual CINEMA DSP and SILENT CINEMA DSP
Yamaha developed the Virtual CINEMA DSP algorithm which allows you to experience the virtual sound fields without surround speakers.
This makes it possible for the DSP-AZ1 to produce a full surround sound catering to the number of speakers you have. The DSP-AZ1 also
has a SILENT CINEMA DSP algorithm which is achieved by the crosstalk processing applying the precise Head Related Transfer Function.
You can therefore enjoy listening to the CINEMA DSP soundfields on headphones.
■ Various decoders to support the newest sound effect technology
This unit is equipped with the following signal format decoders.
• Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital EX
The Matrix decoder enables 6.1-channel playback of the 5.1-channel sources by extracting the rear center channel signals from the rear L/R
channel signals.
• DOLBY PRO LOGIC
• DOLBY PRO LOGIC
DOLBY PRO LOGIC is the improved technique to decode vast numbers of existing Dolby Surround programs. This new technology
enables a discrete 5-channel playback with two left and right main channels, a center channel, and two left and right rear channels compared
with one limited rear channel for the conventional Pro Logic technology. Also the music mode is available for 2-channel sources in addition
to the movie mode.
• DTS and DTS ES
The DSP-AZ1 is also equipped with a DTS decoder, which uses a 5.1-channel system to create a full surround sound environment. It was
developed as a way to replace the analog soundtracks of movies with six channels of digital sound. In comparison with Dolby Digital, DTS
uses less compression to store the sound information. The newly presented DTS ES system reproduces digital sound similar to Dolby Digital
EX. The use of the rear center speaker along with the existing 5.1-channel speakers provides a fully immersive cinematic audio experience.
• DTS Neo: 6
Neo: 6 decodes the conventional 2-channel sources for 6-channel playback by the specific decoder. It enables playback with the full-range
channels with higher separation just like digital discrete signal playback. Two modes are available; “Music mode” for playing music sources
and “Cinema mode” for movies.
• DTS 96/24
DTS 96/24 achieves the high quality playback with all 5.1 channels at the sampling frequency 96 kHz/24 bit.

FEATURES
■ Various input and output jacks
INTRODUCTION
The DSP-AZ1 has various output jacks for audio and video signals as well as a digital recording output jack. Many input jacks are also
available for connection to multiple audio-video sources. All the video inputs and outputs have S-video jacks in addition to standard
composite video jacks for improved video picture quality. Component video input and output jacks are also available to deliver the excellent
video signals from DVD players and other high quality video sources. The coaxial and optical digital signal jacks (provided for direct
transmission of digital signals) automatically detect Dolby Digital, DTS, and PCM signals. A demodulator circuit is built into the Dolby
Digital RF input so you can connect it directly to the Dolby Digital RF signal output on your LD player. Additionally, there are six audio
inputs for discrete multichannel reproduction from an external decoder.
The DSP-AZ1 also comes with a monaural subwoofer jack and split subwoofer jacks which can reproduce delicate but powerful low
frequency effects.
■ Multi-function remote control
The remote control can operate other audio-video components once you program the remote control using the manufacturer code and Learn
feature.

SPEAKER SYSTEM CONFIGURATIONS
The most complete speaker configuration consists of eight speakers: the left and right main speakers, a center speaker, the left and right rear
speakers, the left and right front effect speakers, and a rear center speaker. If you do not use eight speakers, you can direct the signals for
speakers that are not in your system to other speakers in your configuration. A subwoofer can be used with any of these configurations to
produce a fuller sound.

■ 8-speaker configuration –full CINEMA-DSP–
When you reproduce feature film software, this configuration fully expresses the powerful and realistic sound qualities of 70 mm multitrack
audio. The dialogue is positioned as if it were coming from directly on the screen, the sound effect is positioned slightly behind the screen,
and the soundtrack music is positioned even further behind the screen to express the width and depth of the overall presentation. This
configuration makes the most of this unit's capability.

■ 6-speaker configuration –Hi-Fi DSP–
This configuration is used the most for audio playback with Hi-Fi DSP. It does not position the dialogue sound as well as a 7- or 8-speaker
configuration. However, it creates a dynamic DSP (Digital Sound Field Processor) sound field which adds depth to the sound.
For this speaker configuration, change SET MENU item “1A CENTER SP” to “NONE” and “1D REAR CT SP” to “NONE”.

SPEAKER PLACEMENT
Refer to the following diagram when you place the speakers.
Caution
• Use magnetically shielded speakers. If this type of speakers still creates the interference with a monitor, place the speakers away from the
monitor.
■ Placing the main speakers
TV or video
monitor
Main
speaker
Main
speaker
Place the left and right main speakers an equal distance from the main listening position.
If you have a TV or video monitor in your system, the distance of each speaker from each
side of the TV or video monitor should be the same.
■ Placing the center speaker
If you have a TV or video monitor in your system, align the front face of the center
speaker with the front face of the monitor. Place the speaker as close to the monitor as
possible, such as directly over or under the monitor. If you place the speaker under the
monitor, the front effect speakers can adjust the height of the sound to correspond with the
action on the screen (depending on the listener’s position). If you have a projection screen
in your system, place the center speaker under the screen. Be sure to align the speaker
with the center of the screen.

These speakers should be placed about 0.5 – 1 m (1 – 3 feet) outside the main speakers
and in the front of the room. They should be turned toward the main listening position.
Place the rear speakers in the back of the room so they face the main listening position.
The rear speakers can be placed farther apart than the front effect speakers. Place these
speakers at the height of 1.5 m when listening as sitting on the floor or 1.8 m when
listening as sitting on the chair.
Once you begin listening to programs, continue to adjust the speaker placement until you
obtain a balanced sound from the main speakers and the front effect and rear speakers.

Place the speakers as shown in the illustration.
The main speakers should be placed about one-quarter of the way up from the bottom of
the screen.
Place the center speaker in the center and directly under the screen. The center speaker
provides precise dialogue localization.
When you use a projection screen with your system, the front effect speakers provide
better effect quality. The CINEMA-DSP sound field programs (see pages 90 to 94) raise
the sound from the center speaker upward and provide natural sound corresponding with
the video images.
SPEAKER PLACEMENT
■ Placing the subwoofers
Place the front subwoofer near the main speakers. Turn it slightly toward the center of the room to reduce wall reflections.
If you use a rear subwoofer, place it behind the main listening position. The placement of the rear subwoofer is not critical because of the
ultra low frequencies of the sound being reproduced.
By adding a high quality subwoofer to the speaker configurations shown on page 14, you can enjoy more powerful and realistic movie
effects, even if your main speakers are large.
PREPARATIONS
Front subwoofer
Rear subwoofer
Note
• If you use different brands of speakers (with different tonal qualities) in your configuration, the tone of a moving human voice and other
types of sound may not shift smoothly. We recommend that you use speakers from the same manufacturer or speakers with the same tonal
quality.
You can also adjust the output levels and equalization of your effect speakers using the SET MENU (see pages 56 and 57).
If you are using small speakers, the addition of a subwoofer will reinforce the sound effects of movies.

1 Composite VIDEO jack
Video signals input through the VIDEO jacks are the conventional
composite video signals.
2 S VIDEO jack
Video signals input through the S VIDEO jacks are separated into
luminance (Y) and color (C) video signals. The S-video signals
achieve high quality color reproduction. When you are using the S
VIDEO jacks, check the details in the owner’s manual that came
with the component being connected.
3 COMPONENT VIDEO jacks
Video signals input through the COMPONENT VIDEO jacks are
separated into luminance (Y) and color difference (PB/CB, PR/CR)
video signals. The jacks are also separated into three for each signal.
The labels of the component video jacks may be different depending on the component (e.g. Y, CB, CR / Y, PB, PR / Y, B-Y, R-Y/ etc.).
Component video signals provide the best quality in picture
reproduction. When you are using the COMPONENT VIDEO
jacks, check the details in the owner’s manual that came with the
component being connected.
CAUTION
SEE INSTRUCTION MANUAL FOR CORRECT SETTING.
Cautions
• Use a commercially available S-video cable when connecting to
the S VIDEO jacks, and commercially available video cables
when connecting to the COMPONENT VIDEO jacks.
• Each type of video jack works independently. Signals input
through the composite video, S-video, and component jacks are
output through the corresponding composite video, S-video, and
component jacks respectively.
• If your video monitor is connected only to the COMPONENT
VIDEO jacks of this unit, the OSD is not shown.
Note
• You can designate the input for the COMPONENT VIDEO A, B
and C jacks according to your component by using “8 I/O
ASSIGNMENT” on the SET MENU (see page 58 for details).

<When D-TV/LD is selected as the input source>
1 Dolby Digital RF encoded signals
2 Digital signals
3 Analog signals
D.D. RF: This unit only selects Dolby Digital RF signals (when DTV/LD is selected as the input source).
DTS: In this mode, only digital input signals encoded with DTS are
selected even if other signals are input at the same time.
DGTL: This unit only selects digital signals input through the
OPTICAL or COAXIAL jacks (when D-TV/LD is selected as the
input source).
ANALOG: In this mode, only analog input signals are selected
even if digital signals are input at the same time.

E-44
■ Notes on the digital signal
The digital input jacks of this unit can handle up to 192 kHz
sampling digital signal. Both OPTICAL and COAXIAL input jacks
can be used to input the digital signal up to 96 kHz. However when
inputting the higher digital signals than 96 kHz, be aware the
following points.
• DSP programs cannot be selected. Sound will be output as normal
2-channel stereo sound from only the left and right main speakers.
• Use the coaxial input (COAXIAL IN) jack to input over 96 kHz
digital signal. The signals may not be correctly played back if the
optical input (OPTICAL IN) jack is used.
• Level adjustment for effect speakers excluding a subwoofer is not
possible.
Sound effects will be added to 96 kHz sampling digital signals after
converted to 48 kHz.
BASIC PLAYBACK
■ Notes on playing an LD source
• If the digital output data of the player has been processed in any
way, you may not be able to perform DTS decoding even if you
make a digital connection between this unit and the player.
• If you play a source encoded with a DTS signal and set the input
mode to “ANALOG”, this unit may reproduce the noise of an
unprocessed DTS signal. In this case, connect the source to a
digital input jack and set the input mode to “AUTO” or “DTS”.
• If you switch the input mode to “ANALOG” while playing a
source encoded with a DTS signal, this unit reproduces no sound.
• If you play a source encoded with a DTS signal with the input
mode set to “AUTO”, this unit automatically switches to the DTSdecoding mode (The “t” indicator lights up.) after having
detected the DTS signal. When playback of the DTS source is
completed, the “t” indicator may flash. While this indicator is
flashing, only DTS source can be played. If you want to play a
normal PCM source soon, set the input mode back to “AUTO”.
• If you play a source encoded with a DTS signal with the input
mode set to “AUTO”, the “t” indicator may flash when a
search or skip operation is performed while the DTS source is
playing back with the input mode set to “AUTO”. If this status
continues for longer than 30 seconds, this unit will automatically
switch from “DTS-decoding” mode to PCM digital signal input
mode. The “t” indicator will turn off.
• For LD software that does not contain a digital soundtrack,
connect the LD player to the analog jacks and set the input mode
to “AUTO” or “ANALOG”.
• If the LD player is transmitting a signal by a non-standard method,
this unit cannot detect the Dolby Digital or DTS signal. In this
case, the decoder automatically switches to PCM or analog.
• Some A/V components such as LD players output different audio
signals through their analog and digital jacks. Change the input
mode as necessary.
• While you are operating the LD player and playing a disc encoded
with a Dolby Digital signal, if you switch from the pause or
chapter forwarding function to normal playback, you may hear the
PCM or analog sound an instant before the Dolby Digital signal is
played. In this case, set the input mode to “D.D.RF”.

Cautions
• A given input source is not output on the same REC OUT
channel. (For example, the signal input from VCR 1 IN is not
output on VCR 1 OUT.)
• S-video and composite video signals pass independently through
this unit’s video circuits. Therefore, when recording or dubbing
video signals, if your video source component is connected to
provide only an S-video (or only a composite video) signal, you
can record only an S-video (or only a composite video) signal by
your VCR.
• DIGITAL OUTPUT jacks and analog OUT (REC) jacks are
independent. Only digital signals are output from DIGITAL
OUTPUT jacks and analog signals from OUT (REC) jacks.
• A source connected to the 6CH INPUT jacks of this unit cannot
be recorded.
• The LD q RF (AC-3) input signal cannot be output using REC
OUT/ZONE 2.
• Check the copyright laws in your country to record from records,
CDs, radio, etc. Recording of copyrighted material may infringe
copyright laws.
■ Special considerations when recording DTS
software
The DTS signal is a digital bitstream. Attempting to digitally record
the DTS bitstream will result in noise being recorded. Therefore, if
you want to use this unit to record sources that have DTS signals
recorded on them, the following considerations and adjustments
need to be made. For LDs, DVDs and CDs encoded with DTS,
when your player is compatible with the DTS format, follow its
operation instruction to make a setting so that the analog signal will
be output from the player.

6 CINEMA EQ
Use this feature to match the tonal quality of four groups of speakers: the main and center speaker group, the front effect speakers group, the
rear speakers group, and the rear center speaker group. CINEMA-EQ consists of a high-shelving equalizer (HIGH) and a parametric
equalizer (PEQ). The high-shelving equalizer changes high frequency characteristics, and the parametric equalizer boosts or cuts any selected
frequency. The equalizer can be used for a variety of purposes, such as adjusting the tonal quality of differing types of speakers, adjusting the
tonal quality in different installation environments, or adjusting the source sound to your liking.

There are 4 groups (6A – 6D) to be set.
Caution
• If “OFF” is selected in step 1, the setting screen for that group will not be displayed.
3
Press / to select the item to be adjusted.
Select one item at each time from “FRQ”/”GAIN” for “HIGH” and “FRQ”/”GAIN”

13 SP DELAY
Use this feature to adjust the delay of the center and the rear center channel sounds. This feature works when there is sound output from the
center speakers, with a source like Dolby Digital or DTS, etc.
Ideally, the center speaker and the rear center speaker should be the same distance from
the main listening position as the left and right main speakers. However, in most home
situations, the center speaker or the rear center speaker is placed in line with the main
speakers or the rear speakers. By delaying the sound from the center speaker and the rear
center speaker, the apparent distance from the center speaker and the rear center speaker
to the main listening position can be adjusted to make it seem the same as the distance
between the left and right main speaker, and the left and right rear speakers to the listening
position. Adjusting the delay time for the center speaker is especially important for giving
depth to the dialogue.

available, the following procedure needs to be performed. The possible programming area is the same as a component control area, so the
buttons are programmable independently for each source component area.

Each component control area
The general operational buttons are shown for each area. Some of them may not function depending on the component you have. After
setting the manufacturer code, press an input selector button, or SOURCE SELECT / to select a component you want to control.
Caution
• “Yamaha” is factory-set in TUNER, CD, CD-R, MD, and DVD for their manufacturer code. It is necessary to change the manufacturer
code if you would like to use the other manufacturers’ component. For other components than the ones listed above, you need to change the
component category (Library) and then set the manufacturer code. See “Setting the manufacturer code” on pages 66 and 67 for details.

REMOTE CONTROL FEATURES
Using the Macro feature
The Macro feature makes it possible to perform a series of operations by pressing just one button. For example, when you want to play a CD,
normally you would turn on the components, select the CD input, and press the play button to start playback. The Macro feature lets you
perform all those operations by simply pressing the CD macro button. The macro buttons (the input selector buttons, SYSTEM POWER and
STANDBY) are factory set with macro programs. You can also program your own macros (see pages 76 and 77).

OPERATION
*1 In order to turn on some components (including YAMAHA components) connected to this unit, connect those components to the AC
OUTLET(S) on the rear panel. (Power control may not be synchronized with this unit depending on the component. For details, please
refer to the operation instruction for the connected component.)
*2 If the macro you select includes power control functions, the component may be turned off if it is already on when you press the macro
button. For example, if your TV is on and you press the SYSTEM POWER macro button, the TV is turned off.
*3 Playback can be started with any YAMAHA remote control-compatible MD recorders, CD players, CD recorders and DVD players. When
using macros to operate other components, it is either necessary to program PLAY on the control area of that component (see pages 68
and 69) or to set up a manufacturer code (see page 66).
*4 When TUNER is selected as the input source, this unit receives the last station when this unit is set in the standby mode.

Cautions
• When you have finished using the Macro feature, set MACRO
ON/OFF to OFF.
• While this unit is carrying out a macro program, this unit does not
receive any other button’s function until the macro operation has
been completed (the TRANSMIT indicator stops flashing).
• Continue to aim the remote control at the component the macro is
operating until the macro operation has been completed.
• The factory-set macro is not cleared when a new macro is
programmed for a button. The factory-set macro can be used again
when the programmed macro is cleared.
• It is not possible to add a new signal (macro step) to the factoryset macro. Programming a macro changes all macro contents.
• A macro programming is used to transmit learning or setup (or
YAMAHA preset) button signals of this remote control to a macro
button. If necessary, set up the manufacturer code or program a
function with the remote control for your component.
• This remote control handles button signals that operate continuously, such as volume control, as short time interval codes. Macro
programming that include these types of macro steps are therefore
not recommended.
1
Press MACRO by using a ballpoint pen or similar
object.
“MCR ?” appears in the display window.
MACRO
MCR ?
Caution
• If you do not press any button within 30 seconds during steps
2 and 3, the macro programming process is canceled. If this
happens, start over from step 1.
2
Press a macro button for which you want to program
the macro operation.
The button you chose for programming the macro operation
and the selected component name appear alternately in the
display window.
Example: Programming a macro for DVD
“M:DVD” and “DVD” appear alternately.

REMOTE CONTROL FEATURES
Cautions
• “AGAIN” appears in the display window when a button other
than the macro buttons is pressed.
• If you want to change the source component, use SOURCE
SELECT / or input selector buttons. When you use the
input selector buttons, selecting the input is programmed as a
macro step, whereas SOURCE SELECT / only changes
the component.
3
Press the buttons of the functions that you want to
include in the macro operation sequence in order.
You can set up to 10 steps (10 functions). After you have set 10
steps, “FULL” appears and the remote control automatically
exits from the macro mode.
Example: Programming a macro for DVD
If the button that you want to program as the first macro step is
pressed, “MCR 1” appears. In a few seconds, “M:DVD” and
“DVD” appear and you can program the next button.
Caution

■ Special considerations when using DTS software
The DTS signal is a digital bitstream. Therefore, if you attempt to send the DTS signal to Zone 2, you will only be able to hear the digital
noise that could damage your loudspeakers.
Due to this characteristic of DTS encoded discs, the following considerations and adjustments need to be made.
For DTS encoded LDs or DVDs
Only 2-channel audio signals may be sent to Zone 2. Set your Laser Disc/DVD player’s left and right outputs to the analog sound track.
For DTS encoded compact discs
DO NOT USE the Zone 2 feature with DTS encoded compact discs.

DIGITAL SOUND FIELD PROCESSING (DSP)
Understanding sound fields
A sound field is defined as the “characteristic sound reflections of a particular space”. In
concert halls and other music venues, we hear early reflections and reverberations as well
as the direct sound produced by the artist(s). The variations in the early reflections and
other reverberations among the different music venues is what gives each venue its special
and recognizable sound quality.
Yamaha sent teams of sound engineers all around the world to measure the sound
reflections of famous concert halls and music venues, and collect detailed sound field
information such as the direction, strength, range, and delay time of those reflections.
Then we stored this enormous amount of data in the ROM chips of this unit.
■ Early reflections
Reflected sounds reach our ears extremely rapidly (50 ms – 80 ms after the direct sound), after reflecting from one surface only — for
example, from the ceiling or a wall. These reflections provide vital information to our ears. Early reflections actually add clarity to the direct
sound.
■ Reverberations
These are caused by reflections from more than one surface — walls, ceiling, the back of the room — so numerous that they merge together
to form a continuous sonic “afterglow”. They are non-directional, and lessen the clarity of the direct sound.

DIGITAL SOUND FIELD PROCESSING (DSP)
Recreating a sound field
L
R
R
R
FL
FR
Recreating the sound field of a concert hall or an opera house requires localizing the
virtual sound sources in your listening room. The traditional stereo system that uses only
two speakers is not capable of recreating a realistic sound field. Yamaha’s DSP requires
four effect speakers to recreate sound fields based on the measured sound field data. The
processor controls the strength and delay time of the signals output from the four effect
speakers to localize the virtual sound sources in a full circle around the listener.
The DSP sound field programs can be classified in two types based on the sound field
processing method: programs that use early reflections only and programs that use both
early reflections and reverberation.
Illustration of the virtual sound sources and echo patterns
The virtual sound sources and echo patterns for the DSP sound field programs are shown below. The illustration of the virtual sound sources
shows early reflection sound only and the illustration of the echo patterns shows both reflected sound and reverberation.

CINEMA-DSP SOUND FIELD PROGRAM
The sound design of CINEMA-DSP sound field programs
Filmmakers intend the dialog to be located right on the screen, the effect sound a little farther back, the music spread even farther back, and
the surround sound around the listener. Of course, all of these sounds must be synchronized with the images on the screen.
CINEMA-DSP is an upgraded version of YAMAHA DSP specially designed for movie soundtracks. CINEMA-DSP integrates the DTS,
Dolby Digital, and DOLBY PRO LOGIC surround sound technologies with YAMAHA DSP sound field programs to provide the surround
sound field. It recreates the most complete movie sound design in your audio room. In CINEMA-DSP sound field programs, Yamaha’s
exclusive DSP processing is added to the front left, center, and right channels, so the listener can enjoy realistic dialogue, depth of sound,
smooth transition between sound sources, and a surround sound field that goes beyond the screen.
When a DTS or Dolby Digital signal is detected, the CINEMA-DSP sound field processor automatically chooses the most suitable sound
field program for that signal.

sources and echo patterns. However, as these two types of sound fields are processed with complex elements such as energy balance and
mixing signal ratios, they are expressed as a sound field based on auditory perception.

are designed to recreate the spaciousness and delicate nuances of sound that tend to be lost in the encoding and decoding processes.
The six-channel soundtracks found on 70 mm film produce precise sound field localization and rich, deep sound without using matrix
processing. This unit’s MOVIE THEATER 70 mm Programs provide the same quality of sound and sound localization that six-channel
soundtracks do. The built-in Dolby Digital decoder brings the professional quality sound designed for movie theaters into your home. With
this unit’s MOVIE THEATER program, you can recreate a dynamic sound that gives you the feeling of being at a public theater in your
living room using the Dolby Digital technology.
■ DOLBY PRO LOGIC + DSP sound field effect

These programs express an immense sound field and a large surround effect. They also
give depth to the sound from the main speakers to recreate the realistic sound of a Dolby
Stereo theater.

These programs use Yamaha’s tri-field DSP process on each of the Dolby Digital or DTS
signals for the front, left surround, and right surround channels. This processing enables
this unit to reproduce the immense sound field and surround expression of a Dolby Digital
or DTS equipped movie theater without sacrificing the clear separation of all channels.
• DGTL/DTS Spectacle
• DGTL/DTS Sci-Fi
• DGTL/DTS Adventure
• DGTL/DTS General
Note
• If a Dolby Digital signal or DTS signal is input when the input mode is set to “AUTO”,
the DSP program will be automatically switched to the Dolby Digital playback sound
field or DTS playback sound field.
■ Dolby Digital EX/DTS ES + DSP sound field effect
These programs provide you the maximum experience of the spacious surround effects since an extra rear center DSP sound field created
from the rear center channel is added.

CINEMA-DSP SOUND FIELD PROGRAM
ENTERTAINMENT
■ Game
This program adds a deep and spatial feeling to video game sounds
and is also suitable for karaoke.
CONCERT VIDEO 1
■ Pop/Rock
■ DJ
This program produces an enthusiastic atmosphere and lets you feel
as if you are at an actual jazz or rock concert.
The sound field makes the voice of a disc jockey sound clearer.
CONCERT VIDEO 2
■ Classical/Opera
■ Pavilion
This program provides excellent vocal depth and overall clarity by
restraining excessive reverberation.
The surround sound field is relatively moderate but it reproduces
beautiful sound using data collected from a concert hall.
This program reproduces vocals clearly, letting you feel the
spaciousness of a pavilion. Reverberation, which is somewhat
delayed, reproduces the live acoustics unique to a pavilion, and
helps to make concert scenes more exciting.
TV THEATER
■ Mono Movie
■ Variety/Sports
This program is provided for reproducing monaural video sources
(such as old movies). The program produces the optimum reverberation to create sound depth using only the presence sound field.
Though the presence sound field is relatively narrow, the surround
sound field employs the sound environment of a large concert hall.
With this program, you can enjoy watching various TV programs
such as news, variety shows, music programs or sports programs.
MOVIE THEATER 1
■ Spectacle
■ Sci-Fi
This program creates the extremely wide sound field of a 70 mm
movie theater. It precisely reproduces the source sound in detail,
making both the video and the sound fields incredibly real. This
program is ideal for any kind of Dolby Surround video source
(especially large-scale movie productions).
This program clearly reproduces the broad and expansive cinematic
space from the soundtracks of the latest science fiction films.
MOVIE THEATER 2
■ Adventure
■ General
This program is ideal for precisely reproducing the sound design of
the newest 70 mm and multichannel soundtrack films. The sound
field is made to be similar to that of the newest movie theaters, so
the reverberations of the sound field itself are restrained as much as
possible.
This program is for reproducing sounds from 70 mm and multichannel soundtrack films, and is characterized by a soft and extensive
sound field. The presence sound field is relatively narrow. It
spatially spreads all around and toward the screen, restraining the
effect of conversations without losing clarity.
DOLBY DIGITAL/DTS SURROUND
■ Normal/EX/DTS-ES/ES Matrix 6.1/ES Discrete 6.1
The built-in decoder precisely reproduces sounds and sound effects
from sources. The highly efficient decoding process improves
crosstalk and channel separation and makes sound positioning
smoother and more precise.
In this program, no DSP effect is applied.
E-94
■ Enhanced/EX/ES
This program ideally simulates the multiple surround speaker
systems of 35 mm film theaters. The Dolby Surround decoding and
the digital sound field processing create precise effects without
altering the original sound orientation. The surround effects
produced by this sound field wrap around the viewer naturally from
the back to the left and right and toward the screen.
SOUND FIELD PROGRAM PARAMETER EDITING
You can enjoy good quality sound with the preset parameters. Although you do not have to change the initial settings, you can change some

DIGITAL SOUND FIELD PARAMETER DESCRIPTIONS
You can adjust the values of certain digital sound field parameters so the sound fields are recreated accurately in your listening room. Not all
of the following parameters are found in every program.
■ EFCT TRIM (Effect Trim)
Function
Control range
Description
This parameter adjusts the level of all the effect sounds within a narrow range.
–3 dB – +3 dB
Depending on the acoustics of your listening room, you may want to increase or decrease the effect level relative to the
direct sound.
■ INIT. DLY (Initial Delay)
Function
Control range
Description
This parameter changes the apparent distance from the source sound by adjusting the delay between the direct sound and
the first reflection heard by the listener.
1 – 99 ms
The smaller the value, the closer the sound source seems to the listener. The larger the value, the farther the apparent
distance seems. For a small room, this parameter would be set to a small value, for a large room, set it to a large value.
