This is a basic 5.1 Channel System. Front speakers output the front stereo
sound, and a center speaker outputs the sound of the center of the screen,
such as dialogs and vocals. Surround speakers create the back sound field.
Subwoofer reproduces the bass sound, and creates the rich sound field.
The front speakers should be positioned at ear height while the surround
speakers should be positioned just above ear height. The center speaker should
be set up facing the listening position at an angle. Placing the subwoofer between
the center speaker and the front speaker gives you a natural sound even when
playing music sources.

Updating of listening modes
„„
Listening modes such as
Atmos 2.0 and
DSur 2.0 are added when the
firmware is updated after purchase or the firmware is switched in the product
production process. For details of firmware update, see "Additional Function
(Firmware Update)" ( p5).
(Firmware version supporting
Atmos 2.0, etc.)
Since this mode calculates the positional data of audio recorded in Dolby Atmos
audio in real-time and outputs it from appropriate speakers, you can enjoy the
natural and stereophonic sound field of Dolby Atmos with any speaker layout
including connection of only front speakers. Also, the Dolby Atmos sound design
can be reproduced more faithfully by connecting height speakers. You can select
this mode when inputting the Dolby Atmos audio format.
Unlike existing surround systems, Dolby Atmos does not rely on channels, but
rather enables the accurate placement of sound objects that have independent
motion in a 3D space with even greater clarity. Dolby Atmos is an optional
audio format for Blu-ray Discs and achieves a more stereophonic sound field by
introducing a sound field above the listener.
In alphabetical order
„„ AllCh Stereo
This mode is ideal for background music. Stereo sound is played through the
surround speakers as well as the front speakers, creating a stereo image.
„„ Direct
This listening mode can be selected for all input signals. Processing that affects
sound quality is shut down, and sound closer to the original is reproduced. The
sound is reproduced with the sound field based on the number of channels in the
input signal. For example, a 2 ch signal is output only from the front speakers.
Note that the sound adjustment is not available when this mode is selected.

Before starting the procedure
Problems may be solved by simply turning the power on/off or disconnecting/
connecting the power cord, which is easier than working on the connection,
setting and operating procedure. Try the simple measures on both the unit and
the connected device. If the problem is that the video or audio is not output or the
HDMI linked operation does not work, disconnecting/connecting the HDMI cable
may solve it. When reconnecting, be careful not to wind the HDMI cable since
if wound the HDMI cable may not fit well. After reconnecting, turn off and on the
unit and the connected device.
• The AV receiver contains a microPC for signal processing and control
functions. In very rare situations, severe interference, noise from an external
source, or static electricity may cause it to lockup. In the unlikely event that
this happens, unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, wait at least 5
seconds, and then plug it back in.
• Our company is not responsible for damages (such as CD rental fees) due to
unsuccessful recordings caused by the unit’s malfunction. Before you record
important data, make sure that the material will be recorded correctly.

„„ Power
❏❏When the power is turned on, "AMP Diag Mode" appears on the display of the main unit.
• The protection circuit function may have operated. If the unit suddenly enters the standby state and "AMP Diag Mode" appears on the display
of the main unit when the power is turned on again, this function is diagnosing whether or not the main unit is malfunctioning or there is an
abnormality with the speaker cable connection. When the diagnosis is complete, the following messages are displayed.
CH SP WIRE
NG: 
If the unit returns to the normal ON state after "CH SP WIRE" appears on the display, the speaker cable may have been shortcircuited. After setting the power of this unit to standby state, connect the speaker cable again. The wires exposed from the tip of the
speaker cable do not stick out of the speaker terminal.
If the operation has stopped with "NG" displayed on the display, set the power of this unit to standby state immediately and remove the
power plug from the outlet. The unit may be malfunctioning. Consult a dealer.
❏❏The unit turns off unexpectedly
• If "5. Hardware" - "Power Management" - "Auto Standby" on the Setup menu is activated, the unit automatically enters the standby mode.
• The protection circuit function may have operated due to an abnormal rise in temperature of the unit. In such a case, the power turns off
repeatedly even if the power is turned on each time. Secure sufficient ventilation space around the unit, wait for a while until the temperature of
the unit decreases. Then, turn the power on again.
WARNING: If smoke, smell or abnormal noise is produced by the unit, unplug the power cord from the outlet immediately, and contact the dealer or

• Check the digital audio output setting on the connected device. On some game consoles, such as those supporting DVD, the default setting may
be off.
• For some DVD-Video discs, you need to select an audio output format from a menu.
❏❏A speaker produces no sound
• Make sure that the polarity (+/-) of the speaker cables is correct, and that no bare wires are in contact with the metal part of speaker terminals.
• Make sure that the speaker cables are not shorting out.
• Check "Connect the Speaker Cables" ( p25) to see if the speaker connections have been made correctly. Settings for the speaker connection
environment need to be made in "Speaker Setup" in Initial Setup. Check "Initial Setup with Auto Start-up Wizard" ( p83).
• Depending on the input signal and listening mode, not much sound may be output from speakers. Select another listening mode to see if sound is
output.
❏❏The subwoofer produces no sound
If the setting of the front speakers is "Full Band", the low range elements will be output from the front speakers instead of from the subwoofer during
2 ch audio input of TV or music. To output the sound from the subwoofer, make one of the following settings.
1. Change the setting for the front speakers to a setting of crossover frequency value other than "Full Band".
The range below the specified frequency will be output from the subwoofer instead of from the front speakers. If your front speakers have a high
low-range reproduction capability, changing this setting is not recommended.
2. Change "Double Bass" to "On".
The low range elements of the front speakers will be output from both the front speakers and the subwoofer. Due to this, the bass sound may be
emphasized too much. In such a case, do not change the setting, or make the setting with the above option 1.
• For the setting details, refer to "2. Speaker" - "Crossover" in the Setup menu.
• If the input signals do not contain subwoofer audio elements (LFE), the subwoofer may produce no sound.
❏❏Noise can be heard
• Using cable ties to bundle audio pin cables, power cords, speaker cables, etc. may degrade the audio performance. Do not bundle the cords.
• An audio cable may be picking up interference. Change the position of the cables.

❏❏Sound suddenly reduces
• When using the unit for extended periods with the temperature inside the unit exceeding a certain temperature, the volume may be reduced
automatically to protect the circuits.
„„ Listening Modes
• To enjoy digital surround playback in formats such as Dolby Digital, you need to make a connection for audio signals with an HDMI cable, digital

❏❏Cannot select a desired listening mode
• Depending on the connection status of the speaker, some listening modes may not be selected. Refer to "Speaker Layouts and Selectable
Listening Modes" ( p52) or "Input Formats and Selectable Listening Modes" ( p58) in "Listening Mode".
❏❏Cannot listen to the sound in Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos or DTS-HD Master Audio format
• If the audio in Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos or DTS-HD Master Audio format cannot be output correctly in the source format, set "BD video
supplementary sound" (or reencode, secondary sound, video additional audio, etc.) to "Off" in the setting of a connected Blu-ray Disc player, etc.
After changing the setting, switch the listening mode to that for each source, and confirm.
❏❏About DTS signals
• With media that switches suddenly from DTS to PCM, PCM playback may not start immediately. In such a case, stop playback on the player side
for approx. 3 seconds or more. Then, resume playback. The playback will be performed normally.
• DTS playback may not be performed normally on some CD and LD players even if the player and this unit are digitally connected. If some
processing (e.g., output level adjustment, sampling frequency conversion, or frequency characteristic conversion) has been executed for the DTS
signal being output, this unit cannot recognize it as a genuine DTS signal, and noise may occur.
• While playing a DTS-compatible disc, if a pause or skip operation is performed on your player, noise may occur for a short period. This is not a
malfunction.
