2 CAUTIONS ON INSTALLATION
Noise or disturbance of the picture may be generated if this unit or
any other electronic equipment using microprocessors is used near a
tuner or TV.
If this happens, take the following steps:
• Install this unit as far as possible from the tuner or TV.
• Set the antenna wires from the tuner or TV away from this unit’s
power cord and input/output connection cords.
• Noise or disturbance tends to occur particularly when using indoor
antennas or 300 Ω/ohms feeder wires. We recommend using
outdoor antennas and 75 Ω/ohms coaxial cables.
10 cm or more
wall
For heat dispersal, leave at least 10 cm of space between the
top, back and sides of this unit and the wall or other
components.

3 CAUTIONS ON HANDLING
• Switching the input function when input jacks are not
connected
A clicking noise may be produced if the input function is switched
when nothing is connected to the input jacks. If this happens,
either turn down the MASTER VOLUME control or connect
components to the input jacks.
• Whenever the power switch is in the STANDBY state, the
apparatus is still connected on AC line voltage.
Please be sure to unplug the cord when you leave home for,
say, a vacation.
• Muting of PRE OUT jacks and SPEAKER terminals
The PRE OUT jacks and SPEAKER terminals include a muting
circuit. Because of this, the output signals are greatly reduced for
several seconds after the power switch is turned on or input
function, surround mode or any other-set-up is changed. If the
volume is turned up during this time, the output will be very high
after the muting circuit stops functioning. Always wait until the
muting circuit turns off before adjusting the volume.
4 FEATURES
1. Digital Surround Sound Decoding
Featuring dual 32 bit high speed DSP processors, operating
entirely in digital domain, surround sound from digital sources
such as DVD, DTV and satellite are faithfully re-created.
2. Dolby Digital
Using advanced digital processing algorithms, Dolby Digital
provides up to 5.1 channels of wide-range, high fidelity surround
sound. Dolby Digital is the default digital audio delivery system for
North American DVD and DTV, and is available on laser discs as
well as some digital satellite direct-to-home services.
3. DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
DTS provides up to 5.1 channels of wide-range, high fidelity
surround sound, from sources such as laser disc, DVD and
specially-encoded music discs.
4. Lucasfilm Home THX Ultra Certified
Home THX is the unique collaboration between Lucasfilm Ltd. and
audio equipment manufacturers. THX Ultra certification is the
highest performance level, and provides a rigorous set of
performance standards, along with proprietary surround sound
post-processing technologies, designed to enhance the surround
soundtrack playback experience in the home theater.
5. THX Surround EX
The AVR-5800 is fully compatible with THX Surround EX, the latest
surround format.
6. DTS-ES Extended Surround and DTS Neo:6
The AVR-5800 is compatible with DTS-ES Extended Surround, a new
multi-channel format developed by Digital Theater Systems Inc.
The AVR-5800 is also compatible with DTS Neo:6, a surround mode
allowing 6.1-channel playback of regular stereo sources.
7. Wide screen mode for a 7.1-channel sound even with
5.1-channel sources
DENON has developed a wide screen mode with a new design
which recreates the effects of the multi surround speakers in
movie theaters. The result is 7.1-channel sound taking full
advantage of surround back speakers, even with Dolby Pro Logic
or Dolby Digital/DTS 5.1-channel signals.
8. 24 bit D/A Conversion
All eight channels, including the seven main channels and the low
frequency effects (LFE) channel benefit from reference ANALOG
DEVICES DACs, for optimum high fidelity reproduction of music
and movie soundtracks.
9. Dual Surround Speaker Mode
Provides for the first time the ability to optimize surround sound
reproduction using two different types of surround sound
speakers as well as two different surround speaker positions:
(1) Movie Surround
Motion picture soundtracks use the surround channel(s) to
provide the ambient elements of the acoustic environment
they want the audience to realize. This is best accomplished by
the use of specially-designed surround speakers that offer a
wide diffusion pattern (bipolar dispersion) or by using surround
speakers that provide broad dispersion with a minimum of onaxis localization (dipolar dispersion). Side wall mounting (closer
to the ceiling) of the surround speakers provides the greatest
envelopment, minimizing localization of direct sound from the
speakers.
(2) Music Surround
With full range discrete surround channels, as well as three
discrete full range front channels, digital formats such as Dolby
and DTS offer thrilling surround sound music listening.
Producers of multi-channel discrete digital music recordings
almost always favor the use of direct radiating (monopolar)
surround speakers, placed in the rear corners of the room,
since that is how they configure their studios during the
mixing/creation process.
The DENON AVR-5800 provides the ability to connect two
different sets of surround speakers, and place them in the
appropriate locations in your home theater room, so that you
can enjoy both movie soundtracks and music listening, with
optimum results and no compromise.
10.Multi-zone control
The AVR-5800 is equipped with two sets of multi-zone outputs
allowing a source other than the one currently being played to be
selected.
(1) Multi-zone 1
These are level adjustable pre-outputs. (A fixed output level
can also be selected.)
The video signals of the input source selected with the multizone 1 selector are output.
(2) Multi-zone 2
When set at the System Setup Menu, the power amplifier for
the surround back channel can be used as the multi-zone 2
power amplifier and speakers can be connected to the multizone 2 speaker terminals for playback.
11.Component Video Switching
In addition to composite video and “S” video switching, the AVR5800 provides 3 sets of component video (Y, R-Y, B-Y) inputs for
the DVD, TV and DBS/SAT inputs, and one set of component
video outputs to the television, for superior picture quality.
12.Video Select Function
Allow you to watch one source (visual) while listening to another
source (audio).
13.Seven Identical Power Amplifiers
Featuring discrete high current power transistors, the power amp
section is THX Ultra certified for top performance with the widest
range of speaker systems. Rated at 170 watts into 8 Ω/ohms, the
amp channels feature additional low impedance drive capability.
14.Future Sound Format Upgrade Capability via Eight Channel
Inputs & Outputs
For future multi-channel audio format(s), the AVR-5800 is provided
with 7.1 channel (seven main channels, plus one low frequency
effects channel) inputs, along with a full set of 7.1 channel preamp outputs, controlled by the 8 channel master volume control.
This assures future upgrade possibilities for any future multichannel sound format.

Speaker system connections
• Connect the speaker terminals with the speakers making sure that like
polarities are matched ( < with < , > with > ). Mismatching of polarities will
result in weak central sound, unclear orientation of the various instruments,
and the sense of direction of the stereo being impaired.
• When making connections, take care that none of the individual conductors
of the speaker cord come in contact with adjacent terminals, with other
speaker cord conductors, or with the rear panel.
Speaker Impedance
• Speakers with an impedance of from 6 to 16 Ω/ohms can be connected for
use as front and center speakers.
• Speakers with an impedance of 6 to 16 Ω/ohms can be connected for use
as surround speakers.
• The protector circuit may be activated if the set is played for long periods of
time at high volumes when speakers with an impedance lower than the
specified impedance are connected.
NOTE:
NEVER touch the speaker terminals when the power is on.
Doing so could result in electric shocks.
Connecting the speaker cords
1. Loosen by turning
counterclockwise.
2. Insert the cord.
3. Tighten by turning
clockwise.
Connecting banana plugs
Either tightly twist or terminate the core wires.
Turn clockwise to tighten, then insert the
banana plug.
Protector circuit
• This unit is equipped with a high-speed protection circuit. The purpose of this circuit is to protect the speakers under
circumstances such as when the output of the power amplifier is inadvertently short-circuited and a large current flows,
when the temperature surrounding the unit becomes unusually high, or when the unit is used at high output over a long
period which results in an extreme temperature rise.
When the protection circuit is activated, the speaker output is cut off and the power supply indicator LED flashes. Should
this occur, please follow these steps: be sure to switch off the power of this unit, check whether there are any faults
with the wiring of the speaker cables or input cables, and wait for the unit to cool down if it is very hot. Improve the
ventilation condition around the unit and switch the power back on.
If the protection circuit is activated again even though there are no problems with the wiring or the ventilation around the
unit, switch off the power and contact a DENON service center.
Note on speaker impedance
• The protector circuit may be activated if the set is played for long periods of time at high volumes when speakers with
an impedance lower than the specified impedance (for example speakers with an impedance of lower than 4 Ω/ohms)
are connected. If the protector circuit is activated, the speaker output is cut off. Turn off the set’s power, wait for the set
to cool down, improve the ventilation around the set, then turn the power back on.
Cooling fan
• The AVR-5800 is equipped with a cooling fan to prevent the temperature inside the set from rising. The fan is activated
under certain usage conditions. It is temperature and volume level sensitive, to minimize or prevent audible fan noise.

NOTES:
• The on-screen display signals are not output from the MONITOR OUT-2 output jack or the color difference (component) video signal (MONITOR OUT) jacks.
• The on-screen display signals are output with priority to the S-VIDEO MONITOR OUT jack during playback of a video component. For example, if the TV
monitor is connected to both the AVR-5800’s S-Video and video monitor output jacks and signals are input to the AVR-5800 from a video source (VDP, etc.)
connected to both the S-Video and video input jacks, the on-screen display signals are output with priority to the S-Video monitor output. If you wish to output
the signals to the video monitor output jack, do not connect a cord to the S-VIDEO MONITOR OUT jack. (For details, see page 30.)
• The AVR-5800’s on-screen display function is designed for use with high resolution monitor TVs, so it may be difficult to read small characters on TVs with small
screens or low resolutions.
• The setup menu is not displayed when headphones are being used.
• Speaker system layout
Basic system layout (For a THX Surround EX system)
• The following is an example of the basic layout for a system consisting of eight speaker systems and a television monitor:
Subwoofer
Center speaker system
Surround back speaker systems
Front speaker systems
Set these at the sides of the TV or screen with
their front surfaces as flush with the front of the
screen as possible.
Surround speaker systems
With the AVR-5800 it is also possible to use the surround speaker selector function to choose the best layout for a variety of sources and surround
modes.
• Surround speaker selector function
This function makes it possible to achieve the optimum sound fields for different sources by switching between two systems of surround
speakers (A and B). The settings of the different speakers (A only, B only or A+B) are stored in the memory for the different surround modes,
so they are set automatically when the surround mode is selected.

NOTE:
• Select “Large” or “Small” not according to the actual size of the speaker but according to the speaker’s capacity for playing low frequency
(approximately 80 Hz and below) signals. If you do not know, try comparing the sound at both settings (setting the volume to a level low
enough so as not to damage the speakers) to determine the proper setting.
19
• Parameters
Large ................Select this when using speakers that can fully reproduce low sounds of below 80 Hz.
Small ................Select this when using speakers that cannot reproduce low sounds of below 80 Hz with sufficient volume.
When this setting is selected, low frequencies of below 80 Hz are assigned to the subwoofer.
None…… .........Select this when no speakers are installed.
Yes/No… ..........Select “Yes” when a subwoofer is installed, “No” when a subwoofer is not installed.
2spkrs/1spkr.....Select the number of speakers to be used for the surround back channel.
If the subwoofer has sufficient low frequency playback capacity, good sound can be achieved even when “Small” is set for the front, center
and surround speakers.
To take full advantage of the performance of the Home THX certified speaker systems, set the front, center and surround speaker size
parameters to “Small” and the subwoofer to “Yes”.
For the majority of speaker system configurations, using the SMALL setting for all five main speakers and Subwoofer On with a connected
subwoofer will yield the best results.
When “Front” is set to “Small”, “Subwoofer” is automatically set to “Yes”, and when “Subwoofer” is set to “No”, “Front” is automatically
set to “Large”.

NOTES:
— Assignment of low frequency signal range —
• The only signals produced from the subwoofer channel are LFE signals (during playback of Dolby Digital or DTS signals) and the low
frequency signal range of channels set to “SMALL” in the setup menu. The low frequency signal range of channels set to “LARGE” are
produced from those channels.
— Subwoofer mode —
• The subwoofer mode setting is only valid when “LARGE” is set for the front speakers and “YES” is set for the subwoofer in the “Speaker
Configuration” settings (see page 19).
• When the “LFE+MAIN” playback mode is selected, the low frequency signal range of channels set to “LARGE” are produced
simultaneously from those channels and the subwoofer channel.
In this playback mode, the low frequency range expand more uniformly through the room, but depending on the size and shape of the room,
interference may result in a decrease of the actual volume of the low frequency range.
• Selection of the “LFE - THX” play mode will play the low frequency signal range of the channel selected with “LARGE” from that channel
only. Therefore, the low frequency signal range that are played from the subwoofer channel are only the low frequency signal range of LFE
(only during Dolby Digital or DTS signal playback) and the channel specified as “SMALL” in the setup menu. THX is recommended in this
play mode so that bass interference is less likely to occur in the room.
• Select the play mode that provides bass reproduction with body.

After the above settings are completed, press the ENTER button again.
The “Channel Level” screen reappears.
To cancel the settings, select “Level Clear” and “Yes” on the “Channel Level” screen, then make the settings again.
The level of each channel should be adjusted to 75 dB (C-weighted, slow meter mode) on a sound level meter at the listening position.
If a sound level meter is not available adjust the channels by ear so the sound levels are the same. Because adjusting the subwoofer level test
tone by ear is difficult, use a well known music selection and adjust for natural balance.
NOTE: When adjusting the level of an active subwoofer system, you may also need to adjust the subwoofer’s own volume control.
When you adjust the channel levels while in the SYSTEM SETUP CHANNEL LEVEL mode, the channel level adjustments made will affect
ALL surround modes. Consider this mode a Master Channel Level adjustment mode.
After you have completed the SYSTEM SETUP CHANNEL LEVEL adjustments, you can then activate the individual surround modes and
adjust channel levels that will be remembered for each of those modes. Then, whenever you activate a particular surround sound mode,
your preferred channel level adjustments for just that mode will be recalled. Check the instructions for adjusting channel levels within each
surround mode on Page 42.
You can adjust the channel levels for each of the following surround modes: DIRECT, STEREO, 5CH/7CH STEREO, DOLBY/DTS SURROUND,
HOME THX CINEMA, WIDE SCREEN, SUPER STADIUM, ROCK ARENA, JAZZ CLUB, CLASSIC CONCERT, MONO MOVIE, and MATRIX.
When using either surround speakers A or B, or when using surround speakers A and B at the same time, be sure to adjust the balance of
playback levels between each channel for the various selections of “A or B” and “A and B”.

Subwoofer peak limit level setting
• This unit features a subwoofer peak limit control which prevents distortion and damage in the loudspeaker system by controlling the maximum
bass volume level. With this feature you may set the maximum bass level for the system.
• This feature operates with or without a subwoofer in the system.
1
At the System Setup Menu select “Subwoofer Peak Limit Lev.”.
2
Switch to the Subwoofer Peak Limit Level Setting screen.
3
Select “ON” for Peak Limiter.
4
The screen switches. Select “Setting Start”, then
select “Yes”.
The screen switches and a test noise is produced
from the speaker system.
5
Increase the master volume level until the test noise is distorted.
The test noise (bass sound) is distorted when it sounds as if the input is
excessively high (when the sound crackles).
6
Press the ENTER button at the point where the test noise starts sounding distorted.
The AVR-5800 automatically sets the subwoofer peak limit level.
This prevents future inadvertent subwoofer overload due to excessively strong bass content when the master
volume control is at a high level.
Clear the subwoofer’s peak limit level setting by specifying “Peak Limiter” and “OFF”.
27
CAUTION!
• The master volume is set to “–30 dB” when test tones are output.
• The test tones are for confirming the low frequency playback limits and are played at an extremely high level. When using a low output
subwoofer, be very careful about irregular operations exceeding clipping by for example turning down the subwoofer’s attenuator before
starting then slowly turning the attenuator up to the listening level.
• Also, when the subwoofer is set to “NO” in the speaker configuration, the test tones are output from the front speakers. When using front
speakers with low input resistance, check that the sound is not clipped at sections where the signal is strong on the CD music source before
starting the peak limit setting. The peak limit setting should not be performed if the music source cannot be played with the master volume
set at “–15”. Set the front speakers to “small” and the subwoofer to “YES” in the speaker configuration. When this is done, the low
frequencies are cut, so the effect is insufficient. We strongly recommend adding a subwoofer.
• If the test tone is clipped when it is set to “–18 dB”, set the peak limit to “–18 dB”. In this case, the input resistance of the subwoofer or
front speakers is insufficient so clipping may occur when playing music. We recommend switching to a subwoofer with a higher input
resistance.
Setting the Digital In Assignment

Playing audio sources (CDs and DVDs)
The AVR-5800 is equipped with three 2-channel playback modes exclusively for music.
Select the mode to suit your tastes.
1
PURE DIRECT mode
In this mode, the music is played with an extremely high level
of sound quality.
When this mode is set, all the video-related circuits are turned
off so that music signals can be reproduced with high quality.
When an analog input (phono, etc.) is selected, the digital
processing circuitry is also turned off to achieve analog sound
with even higher purity.
(Main unit)
2
DIRECT mode
Use this mode to achieve good quality 2-channel sound while
watching images. In this mode, the audio signals bypass
such circuits as the tone circuit and are transmitted directly,
resulting in good quality sound.

Multi-source and multi-zone playback
MULTI ROOM MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM
• When the outputs of the MULTI SOURCE AUDIO OUT terminals are wired and connected to integrated amplifiers installed in other rooms,
different sources can be played in rooms other than the main room in which this unit and the playback devices are installed. (Refer to ANOTHER
ROOM on the diagram below.)
• When a sold separately room-to-room remote control unit (DENON RC-616, 617 or 618) is wired and connected between the main room and
another room, the remote-controllable devices in the main room can be controlled from another room using the remote control unit.
To control playback devices other than the ones above, either use that device’s remote control unit or preset a separately sold programmable
remote control unit.
NOTES:
• For the AUDIO output, use high quality pin-plug cords and wire in such a way that there is no humming or noise.
• For instructions on installation and operation of separately sold devices, refer to the devices’ operating instructions.

Surround parameters w
CINEMA EQ. (Cinema Equalizer):
The Cinema EQ function gently decreases the level of the extreme high frequencies, compensating for overly-bright sounding motion picture
soundtracks. Select this function if the sound from the front speakers is too bright.
This function only works in the Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Digital, DTS Surround and Wide Screen modes.
D.COMP. (Dynamic Range Compression):
Motion picture soundtracks have tremendous dynamic range (the contrast between very soft and very loud sounds). For listening late at night,
or whenever the maximum sound level is lower than usual, the Dynamic Range Compression allows you to hear all of the sounds in the
soundtrack (but with reduced dynamic range). (This only works when playing program sources recorded in Dolby Digital or DTS.) Select one of
the four parameters (“OFF”, “LOW”, “MID” (middle) or “HI” (high)). Set to OFF for normal listening.
This parameter is displayed only when playing compatible sources in DTS mode.
LFE (Low frequency Effect):
This sets the level of the LFE (Low Frequency Effect) sounds included in the source when playing program sources recorded in Dolby Digital
or DTS.
If the sound produced from the subwoofer sounds distorted due to the LFE signals when playing Dolby Digital or DTS sources when the peak
limiter is turned off with the subwoofer peak limit level setting (system setup menu), adjust the level as necessary.
Program source and adjustment range
1. Dolby Digital:-10 dB to 0 dB
2. DTS Surround:-10 db to 0 dB
When DTS encoded movie software is played, it is recommended that the LFE LEVEL be set to 0 dB for correct DTS playback.
When DTS encoded music software is played, it is recommended that the LFE LEVEL be set to -10 dB for correct DTS playback.
TONE:
This adjusts the tone control. (See “Surround parameters e” on page 50.)
2 Dialogue Normalization
The dialogue normalization function is activated automatically when playing Dolby Digital program sources.
Dialogue normalization is a basic function of Dolby Digital which automatically normalizes the dialog level (standard level) of the signals which are
recorded at different levels for different program sources, such as DVD, DTV and other future formats that will use Dolby Digital.
When this function is activated, the following message appears on the main unit’s display:
The number indicates the normalization level when the currently playing program is normalized to the

WIDE SCREEN
Select this to achieve an atmosphere like that of a movie theater with a large screen. In this mode, all signal sources are played
in the 7.1-channel mode, including Dolby Pro Logic and Dolby Digital 5.1-channel sources. Effects simulating the multi surround
speakers of movie theaters are added to the surround channels.
2
SUPER STADIUM
Select this when watching baseball or soccer programs to achieve a sound as if you were actually at the stadium. This mode
provides the longest reverberation signals.
3
ROCK ARENA
Use this mode to achieve the feeling of a live concert in an arena with reflected sounds coming from all directions.
4
JAZZ CLUB
This mode creates the sound field of a live house with a low ceiling and hard walls. This mode gives jazz a very vivid realism.
5
CLASSIC CONCERT
Select this for the sound of a concert hall rich in reverberations.
6
MONO MOVIE
(NOTE 1)
Select this when watching monaural movies for a greater sense of expansion.
7
MATRIX
Select this to emphasize the sense of expansion for music sources recorded in stereo. Signals consisting of the difference
component of the input signals (the component that provides the sense of expansion) processed for delay are output from the
surround channel.
8
5CH/7CH STEREO
The front left channel signals are output to the surround and surround back signal left channels, the front right channel signals are
output to the surround and surround back signal right channels, and the in-phase component of the left and right channels is output
to the center channel. Use this mode to enjoy stereo sound.
Depending on the program source being played, the effect may not be very noticeable.
In this case, try other surround modes, without worrying about their names, to create a sound field suited to your tastes.
NOTE 1: When playing sources recorded in monaural, the sound will be one-sided if signals are only input to one channel (left or right), so input
signals to both channels. If you have a source component with only one audio output (monophonic camcorder, etc.) obtain a “Y” adaptor
cable to split the mono output to two outputs, and connect to the L and R inputs.
NOTE:
PURE DIRECT, DIRECT and 5CH/7CH STEREO modes can be used when playing PCM signals with a sampling frequency of 96 kHz (such as
from DVD-Video discs that contain 24 bit, 96 kHz audio). If such signals are input during playback in one of the other surround modes, the mode
automatically switches to DIRECT.
Personal Memory Plus
This set is equipped with a personal memorize function that automatically memorizes the surround modes and input modes selected for the
input different sources. When the input source is switched, the modes set for that source last time it was used are automatically recalled.
* The surround parameters, tone control settings and playback level balance for the different output channels are memorized for each
surround mode.

16 ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Optimum surround sound for different sources
There are currently various types of multi-channel signals (signals or formats with more than two channels).
2 Types of multi-channel signals
Dolby Digital (EX), Dolby Pro Logic, DTS (ES), high definition 3-1 signals (Japan MUSE Hi-Vision audio), DVD-Audio, SACD (Super Audio CD),
MPEG multi-channel audio, etc.
“Source” here does not refer to the type of signal (format) but the recorded content. Sources can be divided into two major categories.
2 Types of sources
• Movie audio
Signals created to be played in movie theaters. In general sound is recorded to be played in movie theaters equipped
with multiple surround speakers, regardless of the format (Dolby Digital, DTS, etc.).

FR
SL
Listening room sound field
SR

SL
FR
SR
SB
In this case it is important to achieve the same sense of
expansion as in a movie theater with the surround channels.
To do so, in some cases the number of surround speakers is
increased (to four or eight) or speakers with bipolar or dipolar
properties are used.
SL: Surround L channel
SR: Surround R channel
SB: Surround B (back) channel
SB
Multiple surround speakers
• Other types of audio These signals are designed to recreate a 360° sound field using three to five speakers.
FL
SW
C
FR
In this case the speakers should surround the listener from all sides to create a uniform sound
field from 360°. Ideally the surround speakers should function as “point” sound sources in the
same way as the front speakers.
SL
SR
These two types of sources thus have different properties, and different speaker settings, particularly for the surround speakers, are required
in order to achieve the ideal sound.
The AVR-5800’s surround speaker selection function makes it possible to change the settings according to the combination of surround
speakers being used and the surrounding environment in order to achieve the ideal surround sound for all sources. This means that you can
connect a pair of bipolar or dipolar surround speakers (mounted on either side of the prime listening position), as well as a separate pair of direct
radiating (monopolar) speakers placed at the rear corners of the listening room.
56
Surround back speakers
The THX Surround EX format adds new “Surround Back” (SB) channels to the conventional 5.1-channel system. This makes it easy to achieve
sound positioned directly behind the listener, something that was previously difficult with sources designed for conventional multi surround
speakers. In addition, the acoustic image extending between the sides and the rear is narrowed, thus greatly improving the expression of the
surround signals for sounds moving from the sides to the back and from the front to the point directly behind the listening position.

Speaker(s) for one or two channels are required in order to achieve a THX Surround EX system with the AVR-5800. Adding these, however, allows
you to achieve stronger surround effects not only with sources recorded in THX Surround EX, but also with conventional 2- to 5.1-channel sources.
The WIDE SCREEN mode is a mode for achieving surround sound with up to 7.1 channels using surround back speakers, for sources recorded
in conventional Dolby Surround as well as Dolby Digital 5.1-channel and DTS Surround 5.1-channel sources. Furthermore, all the Denon original
surround modes (see page 48) are compatible with 7.1-channel playback, so you can enjoy 7.1-channel sound with any signal source.
2 Number of surround back speakers
With THX Surround EX, the surround back channel consists of one channel of playback signals, but we recommend using two speakers. When
using dipolar speakers in particular, it is essential to use two speakers.
Using two speakers results in a smoother blend with the sound of the surround channels and better sound positioning of the surround back
channel when listening from a position other than the center.
2 Placement of the surround left and right channels when using surround back speakers
Using surround back speakers greatly improves the positioning of the sound at the rear. Because of this, the surround left and right channels
play an important role in achieving a smooth transition of the acoustic image from the front to the back. As shown on the diagram above, in a
movie theater the surround signals are also produced from diagonally in front of the listeners, creating an acoustic image as if the sound were
floating in space.
To achieve these effects, we recommend placing the speakers for the surround left and right channels slightly more towards the front than
with conventional surround systems. Doing so sometimes increases the surround effect when playing conventional 5.1-channel sources in the
THX Surround EX mode. Check the surround effects of the various modes before selecting the surround mode.
57
Speaker setting examples
Here we describe a number of speaker settings for different purposes. Use these examples as guides to set up your system according to the type
of speakers used and the main usage purpose.
1. For THX Surround EX systems (using surround back speakers)

downwards
• Consult the owner’s manual for your subwoofer for advice on placing
the subwoofer within the listening room.
• If the surround speakers are direct-radiating (monopolar) then place
60 to 90 cm
them slightly behind and at an angle to the listening position and
parallel to the walls at a position 60 to 90 centimeters (2 to 3 feet)
above ear level at the prime listening position.
As seen from the side
• When using two surround back speakers, place them at the back
facing the front at a narrower distance than the front left and right speakers. When using one surround back speaker,
place it at the rear center facing the front at a slightly higher position (0 to 20 cm) than the surround speakers.
• We recommend installing the surround back speaker(s) at a slightly downward facing angle. This effectively prevents
the surround back channel signals from reflecting off the monitor or screen at the front center, resulting in interference
and making the sense of movement from the front to the back less sharp.
• Connect the surround speakers to the surround speaker A jacks on the AVR-5800 and set all settings on the setup menu
to “A”. (This is the factory default setting. For details, see page 16.)
(2) Setting for primarily watching movies using diffusion type speakers for the surround speakers
For the greatest sense of surround sound envelopment, diffuse radiation speakers such as bipolar types, or dipolar (THX) types, provide
a wider dispersion than is possible to obtain from a direct radiating speaker (monopolar). Place these speakers at either side of the prime
listening position, mounted above ear level.

As seen from the side
• The signals from the surround channels reflect off the walls as
shown on the diagram at the left, creating an enveloping and realistic surround sound presentation.
For multi-channel music sources however, the use of bipolar or dipolar
speakers mounted at the sides of the listening position may not be satisfactory in order to create a coherent 360 degree
surround sound field. Connect another pair of direct radiating speakers as described in example (3) and place them at
the rear corners of the room facing towards the prime listening position.
(3) When using different surround speakers for movies and music
To achieve more effective surround sound for both movies and music, use different sets of surround speakers and different surround
modes for the two types of sources.

• Set the center speaker in the same positions as in example (1).
• Set surround speakers A for watching movies in the positions described in example (1) or (2), depending on the types
of speakers used.
• Set surround speakers B for playing multi-channel music at the same height as the front speakers and slightly at an angle
to the rear of the listening position, and point them toward the listening position.
• Connect the surround speakers for watching movies to the surround speaker A jacks on the AVR-5800, the surround
speakers for playing multi-channel music to the surround speaker B jacks. Set the surround speaker selection on the
setup menu. (For instructions, see page 19.)
• To activate the appropriate speakers for movies and music, we suggest that during setup, choose Dolby Digital/DTS with
THX and Surround Speakers A (the bipolar or dipolar speakers mounted at the sides of the listening position).
Choose Dolby Digital/DTS without THX and Surround Speakers B
(the direct radiating speakers mounted at the rear corners of the

Surround
The AVR-5800 is equipped with a digital signal processing circuit that lets you play program sources in the surround mode to achieve the same
sense of presence as in a movie theater.
Dolby Surround
(1) Dolby Digital (Dolby Surround AC-3)
Dolby Digital is the multi-channel digital signal format developed by Dolby Laboratories.
Dolby Digital consists of up to “5.1” channels - front left, front right, center, surround left, surround right, and an additional channel exclusively
reserved for additional deep bass sound effects (the Low Frequency Effects – LFE – channel, also called the “.1” channel, containing bass
frequencies of up to 120 Hz).
Unlike the analog Dolby Pro Logic format, Dolby Digital’s main channels can all contain full range sound information, from the lowest bass, up
to the highest frequencies – 22 kHz. The signals within each channel are distinct from the others, allowing pinpoint sound imaging, and Dolby
Digital offers tremendous dynamic range from the most powerful sound effects to the quietest, softest sounds, free from noise and distortion.

1 When playing in Dolby Digital with a Dolby Digital compatible LD player, connect the LD (VDP) player to the VDP function.
2 When the LD/DVD compatible player is equipped with Dolby Digital RF outputs, the LD’s Dolby Digital output is output from the RF jacks
and the DVD’s Dolby Digital output is output from the optical or coaxial digital jacks. Select the input mode according to the type of media
being played (LD or DVD). You may wish to connect the outboard RF demodulator’s digital output to the AVR-5800’s VDP input.
3 If the player is switched from the pause or search mode to the play mode when playing an LD in the “AUTO” mode (see page 33), analog
sound may be output momentarily before the sound switches to Dolby Digital. This is because the Dolby Digital RF signals output from
the LD are not output during the pause and search modes, so during this type the input mode is switched according to the “AUTO”
mode’s signal priority order (see page 33). If this happens, switch to the “RF” (fixed RF input) mode. No analog sound will be output.
4 Some DVD digital outputs have the function of switching the Dolby Digital signal output method between “bit stream” and “(convert to)
PCM”. When playing in Dolby Digital surround on the AVR-5800, switch the DVD player’s output mode to “bit stream”. In some cases
players are equipped with both “bit stream + PCM” and “PCM only” digital outputs. In this case connect the “bit stream + PCM” jacks
to the AVR-5800.
60
(2) Dolby Pro Logic
Dolby Pro Logic is a multi-channel signal playback system developed by Dolby Laboratories which decodes sources recorded in Dolby
Surround into four channels: front left, center, front right and surround (the surround channel is monaural, but is played through two surround
speakers). Here, “sources recorded in Dolby Surround” are sources on which surround signals (three channels or more) are recorded onto
two channels using Dolby Surround encoding technology. Dolby Surround recording is possible for all two-channel signal sources, including
soundtracks on DVDs ( ), LDs or hi-fi VCRs (for which stereo signal recording is possible), stereo FM, TV and satellite broadcasts, stereo CD,
MD and analog cassette tape recordings. Sources recorded in Dolby Surround are compatible with stereo playback, so they can be played in
stereo on regular stereo equipment and in surround with Dolby Pro Logic processing. (DTS and Dolby Digital require special decoders to be
played.)
With Dolby Pro Logic, the signal levels of the different channels of the source recorded in Dolby Surround are monitored, channels with higher
signal levels are emphasized and the level of the other channels is decreased in order to reinforce the directivity and achieve an effective
surround sound.
DVDs recorded in Dolby Surround include sources recorded in PCM and sources recorded in 2-channel Dolby Digital. For 2-channel Dolby
Digital DVD sources, the DVD player’s audio mode is 2-channel Dolby Digital, and the AVR-5800’s surround mode is Dolby Pro Logic. Use
the status button (see page 35) to check whether the Dolby Digital signals are recorded in 2-channel stereo or Dolby Surround.

Dolby Pro Logic compatible media and playback methods
Mark indicating Dolby Pro Logic compatibility:

DTS Digital Surround
DTS Digital Surround (also called simply DTS) is a multi-channel digital signal format developed by Digital Theater Systems.
DTS offers the same “5.1” playback channels as Dolby Digital (front left, front right and center, surround left and surround right) as well as the
stereo 2-channel mode. The signals for the different channels are fully independent, eliminating the risk of deterioration of sound quality due to
interference between signals, crosstalk, etc.
DTS features a relatively higher bit rate as compared to Dolby Digital (1234 kbps for CDs and LDs, 1536 kbps for DVDs) so it operates with a
relatively low compression rate. Because of this the amount of data is great, and when DTS playback is used in movie theaters, a separate CDROM synchronized with the film is played.
With LDs and DVDs, there is of course no need for an extra disc; the pictures and sound can be recorded simultaneously on the same disc, so
the discs can be handled in the same way as discs with other formats.
There are also music CDs recorded in DTS. These CDs include 5.1-channel surround signals (compared to two channels on current CDs). They do
not include picture data, but they offer surround playback on CD players that are equipped with digital outputs (PCM type digital output required).
DTS surround track playback offers the same intricate, grand sound as in a movie theater, right in your own listening room.

1 DTS signals are recorded in the same way on CDs and LDs as PCM signals. Because of this, the un-decoded DTS signals are output as
random “hissy” noise from the CD or LD player’s analog outputs. If this noise is played with the amplifier set at a very high volume, it
may possibly cause damage to the speakers. To avoid this, be sure to switch the input mode to “AUTO” or “DTS” before playing CDs or
LDs recorded in DTS. Also, never switch the input mode to “ANALOG” or “PCM” during playback. The same holds true when playing
CDs or LDs on a DVD player or LD/DVD compatible player. For DVDs, the DTS signals are recorded in a special way so this problem does
not occur.
2 The signals provided at the digital outputs of a CD or LD player may undergo some sort of internal signal processing (output level
adjustment, sampling frequency conversion, etc.). In this case the DTS-encoded signals may be processed erroneously, in which case they
cannot be decoded by the AVR-5800, or may only produce noise. Before playing DTS signals for the first time, turn down the master
volume to a low level, start playing the DTS disc, then check whether the DTS indicator on the AVR-5800 (see page 45) lights before
turning up the master volume.
3 A DVD player with DTS-compatible digital output is required to play DTS DVDs. A DTS Digital Output logo is featured on the front panel
of compatible DVD players. Recent DENON DVD player models feature DTS-compatible digital output – consult the player’s owner’s
manual for information on configuring the digital output for DTS playback of DTS-encoded DVDs.

DTS-ES Extended Surround
TM
DTS-ES Extended Surround is a new multi-channel digital signal format developed by Digital Theater Systems Inc. While offering high compatibility
with the conventional DTS Digital Surround format, DTS-ES Extended Surround greatly improves the 360-degree surround impression and space
expression thanks to further expanded surround signals. This format has been used professionally in movie theaters since 1999.
In addition to the 5.1 surround channels (FL, FR, C, SL, SR and LFE), DTS-ES Extended Surround also offers the SB (Surround Back, sometimes
also referred to as “surround center”) channel for surround playback with a total of 6.1 channels. DTS-ES Extended Surround includes two signal
formats with different surround signal recording methods, as described below.
2
DTS-ESTM Discrete 6.1
DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 is the newest recording format. With it, all 6.1 channels (including the SB channel) are recorded independently using a
digital discrete system. The main feature of this format is that because the SL, SR and SB channels are fully independent, the sound can be
designed with total freedom and it is possible to achieve a sense that the acoustic images are moving about freely among the background
sounds surrounding the listener from 360 degrees.
Though maximum performance is achieved when sound tracks recorded with this system are played using a DTS-ES decoder, when played
with a conventional DTS decoder the SB channel signals are automatically down-mixed to the SL and SR channels, so none of the signal
components are lost.
2
DTS-ESTM Matrix 6.1
With this format, the additional SB channel signals undergo matrix encoding and are input to the SL and SR channels beforehand. Upon
playback they are decoded to the SL, SR and SB channels. The performance of the encoder used at the time of recording can be fully matched
using a high precision digital matrix decoder developed by DTS, thereby achieving surround sound more faithful to the producer’s sound design
aims than with conventional 5.1- or 6.1-channel systems.
In addition, the bit stream format is 100% compatible with conventional DTS signals, so the effect of the Matrix 6.1 format can be achieved
even with 5.1-channel signal sources. Of course it is also possible to play DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 encoded sources with a DTS 5.1-channel decoder.
When DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 or Matrix 6.1 encoded sources are decoded with a DTS-ES decoder, the format is automatically detected upon
decoding and the optimum playing mode is selected. However, some Matrix 6.1 sources may be detected as having a 5.1-channel format, so the
DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 mode must be set manually to play these sources.
(For instructions on selecting the surround mode, see page 46.)
The DTS-ES decoder includes another function, the DTS Neo:6 surround mode for 6.1-channel playback of digital PCM and analog signal sources.

62
DTS Neo:6TM surround
This mode applies conventional 2-channel signals to the high precision digital matrix decoder used for DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 to achieve 6.1channel surround playback. High precision input signal detection and matrix processing enable full band reproduction (frequency response of
20 Hz to 20 kHz or greater) for all 6.1 channels, and separation between the different channels is improved to the same level as that of a digital
discrete system.
DTS Neo:6 surround includes two modes for selecting the optimum decoding for the signal source.
• DTS Neo:6 Cinema
This mode is optimum for playing movies. Decoding is performed with emphasis on separation performance to achieve the same
atmosphere with 2-channel sources as with 6.1-channel sources.
This mode is effective for playing sources recorded in conventional surround formats as well, because the in-phase component is assigned
mainly to the center channel (C) and the reversed phase component to the surround (SL, SR and SB channels).
• DTS Neo:6 Music
This mode is suited mainly for playing music. The front channel (FL and FR) signals bypass the decoder and are played directly so there is
no loss of sound quality, and the effect of the surround signals output from the center (C) and surround (SL, SR and SB) channels add a
natural sense of expansion to the sound field.
Home THX Cinema surround mode
THX is an exclusive set of standards and technologies established by the world-renowned film production company, Lucasfilm Ltd. THX grew from
George Lucas’ personal desire to make your experience of the film soundtrack, in both movie theaters and in your home theater, as faithful as
possible to what the director intended.
Movie soundtracks are mixed in special movie theaters called dubbing stages and are designed to be played back in movie theaters with similar
equipment and conditions. The soundtrack created for movie theaters is then transferred directly onto Laserdisc, VHS tape, DVD, etc., and is not
changed for playback in a small home theater environment.
THX engineers developed patented technologies to accurately translate the sound from the movie theater environment into the home, correcting
the tonal and spatial errors that occur. On the AVR-5800, when the Home THX Cinema mode is on, THX processing is automatically added after
the Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Digital or DTS decoder:
Re-EqualizationTM
The tonal balance of a film soundtrack will be excessively bright and harsh when played back over audio equipment in the home because film
soundtracks are designed to be played back in large movie theaters using very different professional equipment. Re-Equalization restores the
correct tonal balance for watching a movie soundtrack in a small home environment.
Timbre MatchingTM
The human ear changes our perception of a sound depending on the direction from which the sound is coming. In a movie theater, there is an
array of surround speakers so that the surround information is all around you. In a home theater, only two speakers located to the side of your
head are used. The Timbre Matching feature filters the information going to the surround speakers so that they more closely match the tonal
characteristics of the sound coming from the front speakers. This ensures seamless panning between the front and surround speakers.
Adaptive DecorrelationTM
In a movie theater, a large number of surround speakers help create an enveloping surround sound experience, while in a home theater there are
usually only two speakers. This can make the surround speakers sound like headphones that lack spaciousness and envelopment. The surround
sounds will also collapse into the closest speaker as you move away from the middle seating position. Adaptive Decorrelation slightly changes
one surround channel’s time and phase relationship with respect to the other surround channel. This expands the listening position and creates—
with only two speakers—the same spacious surround experience as in a movie theater.
THX UltraTM
Before any home theater component can be THX Ultra certified, it must incorporate all the features above and also pass a rigorous series of quality
and performance tests. Only then can a product feature the THX Ultra logo, which is your guarantee that the Home Theater products you purchase
will give you superb performance for many years to come. THX Ultra requirements cover every aspect of the product including power amplifier
performance, pre-amplifier performance and operation, as well as hundreds of other parameters in both the digital and analog domain.

THX Surround EX
In 1999, a new surround system was launched simultaneously with the release of the movie “Star Wars Episode I”. “Dolby Digital Surround EX”
is a new movie sound track that greatly enhances the sense of spatial expression and the positioning of the surround channel sound. The result
is 360 degrees of movement and moving sound effects that seem to pass right over the listener's head.
This system was developed jointly by Lucasfilm THX and Dolby Laboratories, fusing Lucasfilm's idea of improving spatial expression and achieving
a uniform 360 degree sound positioning with Dolby Laboratories' matrix encoding technology. Emphasis was placed on compatibility with the
existing system Dolby Digital 5.1-channel, and the new "surround back (SB) channel" was added to achieve improvements over the conventional
5.1-channel system in terms of the positioning of the sound at the rear, the acoustic image of sound moving from the two sides to the back as
well as sound moving from the front to the center rear with the multi surround speaker systems used in movie theaters, thereby enabling various
types of surround sound.
The surround back channel signal is a matrix-encoded signal inserted into both the Dolby Digital SL (surround left) and SR (surround right) channels.
Upon playback, the signals are decoded by a high precision digital matrix decoder within the Dolby Digital decoder into the SL, SR and SB channels
and output as 6.1 channels of signals. With the AVR-5800, the signals further undergo Home THX Cinema processing to achieve a THX Surround
EX system.
Even without the proper environment for playing the SB channel, Dolby Digital Surround EX signals are 100% compatible with existing 5.1-channel
playback systems, so they can be played as such. In this case, the SB channel signal is produced as a monaural signal from both the SL and SR
channels, so none of the signal components are missing. The effects specific to THX Surround EX (the sense of spatial expression and the
positioning of the sound), however, are the same as with conventional 5.1-channel surround systems.
