Home theater refers to the use of multiple
audio tracks to create a surround sound effect,
making you feel like you're in the middle of the
action or concert. The surround sound you get
from a home theater system depends not only
on your speaker setup, but also on the source
and the sound settings of the receiver.
Where you place the speakers will have a big
effect on the sound. Place your speakers as
shown below for the best surround sound
effect. Also see Hints on speaker placement on
page 20 for more on this.

The Auto Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration
(MCACC) setup measures the acoustic
characteristics of your listening area, taking
into account ambient noise, speaker size and
distance, and tests for both channel delay and
channel level. After you have set up the
microphone provided with your system, the
receiver uses the information from a series of
test tones to optimize the speaker settings and
equalization for your particular room.
Make sure there are no obstacles between the
speakers and the microphone.

appliances (air conditioner, fridge, fan, etc.),
that may be affecting the environment and
switch them off if necessary. If there are any
instructions showing in the front panel display,

Video cables
Making cable connections
Important
• Before making or changing connections,
switch off the power and disconnect the
power cord from the AC outlet.
• Make sure not to bend the cables over the
top of this unit. If this happens, the
magnetic field produced by the
transformers in this unit may cause a
humming noise from the speakers.
• Before unplugging the power cord, switch
the power into standby.
Analog audio cables
Use stereo RCA phono cables to connect
analog audio components. These cables are
typically red and white, and you should
connect the red plugs to R (right) terminals
and white plugs to L (left) terminals.
Analog audio cables
Right (red)
Left (white)
Digital audio cables
Commercially available coaxial digital audio
cables or optical cables should be used to
connect digital components to this receiver.1
Standard RCA video cables
These cables are the most common type of
video connection and are used to connect to
the composite video terminals. The yellow
plugs distinguish them from cables for audio.
Standard RCA video cable
S-video cables
S-video cables give you a clearer picture
reproduction than standard RCA video cables
by sending separate signals for the luminance
and color.
S Video
Component video cables
Use component video cables to get the best
possible color reproduction of your video
source. The color signal of the TV is divided into
the luminance (Y) signal and the color (PB and
PR) signals and then output. In this way,
interference between the signals is avoided.
Component video cables
Green (Y)
Blue (PB)
Coaxial digital audio cable
Red (PR)
Optical cable
Note
1 • When connecting optical cables, be careful when inserting the plug not to damage the shutter protecting the optical socket.
• When storing optical cable, coil loosely. The cable may be damaged if bent around sharp corners.
• You can also use a standard RCA video cable for coaxial digital connections.

setup will vary. Simply connect the speakers you have in the manner shown below. 1 The receiver
will work with just two stereo speakers (the front speakers in the diagram) but using at least three
speakers is recommended, and a complete setup is best.
Deutsch
Make sure you connect the speaker on the right to the right terminal and the speaker on the left
to the left terminal. Also make sure the positive and negative ( +/–) terminals on the receiver match
those on the speakers.2 You can use speakers with a nominal impedance between 6–16 Ω (please
see Switching the speaker impedance on page 63 if you plan to use speakers with an impedance of
less than 8Ω).

Caution
• Make sure that all the bare speaker wire is twisted together and inserted fully into the speaker
terminal. Use good quality speaker wire to connect the speakers to the receiver.
Note
1 If you’re not using a subwoofer, change the front speaker setting (see Speaker Setting on page 40) to large.
2 If you are using only one surround back speaker, connect it to the surround back left ( L) terminal.

Connecting up
Make sure that the speaker cable you’re using
is properly prepared with about 3/8 in. (10 mm)
of insulator stripped from each wire, with the
exposed wire strands twisted together (fig. A).
Unscrew the terminal a few turns until there is
enough space to insert the exposed wire
(fig. B). Once the wire is in position, tighten the
terminal until the wire is firmly clamped (fig. C).

• The speaker terminals also accept single
banana plugs. (Refer to speaker manual for
details.)
• Place the front left and right speakers at
equal distances from the TV.
• When placing speakers near the TV, we
recommend using magnetically shielded
speakers to prevent possible interference,
such as discoloration of the picture when
the TV is switched on. If you do not have
magnetically shielded speakers and notice
discoloration of the TV picture, move the
speakers farther away from the TV.
• If you're using a center speaker, place the
front speakers at a wider angle. If not, place
them at a narrower angle.
• Place the center speaker above or below
the TV so that the sound of the center
channel is localized at the TV screen. Also,
make sure the center speaker does not
cross the line formed by the leading edge
of the front left and right speakers.
• It is best to angle the speakers towards the
listening position. The angle depends on
the size of the room. Use less of an angle
for bigger rooms.
Caution
• These speaker terminals are hazardous
when live. To prevent the risk of electric
shock when connecting or disconnecting
the speaker cables, disconnect the power
cord.
Hints on speaker placement
Speakers are usually designed with a
particular placement in mind. Some are
designed to be floorstanding, while others
should be placed on stands to sound their best.
Some should be placed near a wall; others
should be placed away from walls. We have
provided a few tips on getting the best sound
from your speakers (following), but you should
also follow the guidelines on placement that
the speaker manufacturer provided with your
particular speakers to get the most out of
them.
20
En
• Surround and surround back speakers
should be positioned a foot-and-a-half to
three feet (60 cm–90 cm) higher than your
ears and titled slightly downward. Make
sure the speakers don't face each other.
• To achieve the best possible surround
sound, install your speakers as shown
below. Be sure all speakers are installed
securely to prevent accidents and improve
sound quality.
Caution
• If you choose to install the center speaker
on top of the TV, be sure to secure it with
putty, or by other suitable means, to reduce
the risk of damage or injury resulting from
the speaker falling from the TV in the event
of external shocks such as earthquakes.
• Make sure no exposed speaker wire is
touching the rear panel, this may cause the
receiver to turn off automatically.

Listening to your system
Important
• Certain features explained in this section
will not be possible depending on the
source (for example, PCM 88.2 / 96 kHz,
DTS 96 kHz (24 bit) or WMA 9 Pro sources).
If you connected surround back speakers, see
also Using surround back channel processing
on page 31.2
The following modes provide basic surround
sound for stereo and multichannel sources.
STANDARD ADV.SURR
Auto playback
The simplest, most direct listening option is the
Auto Surround feature. With this, the receiver
automatically detects what kind of source
you’re playing and selects multichannel or
stereo playback as necessary.1
STANDARD ADV.SURR
STEREO AUTO SURR
• While listening to a source, press AUTO
SURR for auto playback of a source.
Press repeatedly until AUTOSURR. shows
briefly in the display (it will then show the
decoding or playback format). Check the
digital format indicators in the display to see
how the source is being processed.
• When listening to XM Radio, AUTO SURR
selects the XM Surround feature (page 53).
Listening in surround sound
Using this receiver, you can listen to any
source in surround sound. However, the
options available will depend on your speaker
setup and the type of source you’re listening to.
STEREO AUTO SURR
• While listening to a source, press
STANDARD.
If necessary, press repeatedly to select a
listening mode.
• If the source is Dolby Digital, DTS, or Dolby
Surround encoded, the proper decoding
format will automatically be selected and
shows in the display.3
With two channel sources, you can select from:
• 2 Pro Logic IIx MOVIE – Up to 7.1
channel sound, especially suited to movie
sources
• 2 Pro Logic IIx MUSIC – Up to 7.1
channel sound, especially suited to music
sources
• 2 Pro Logic IIx GAME – Up to 7.1
channel sound, especially suited for video
games
• 2 PRO LOGIC – 4.1 channel surround
sound (sound from the surround speakers
is mono)
• Neo:6 CINEMA – 6.1 channel sound,
especially suited to movie sources
Note
1 • Stereo surround (matrix) formats are decoded accordingly using Neo:6 CINEMA or 2 Pro Logic IIx MOVIE (see Listening
in surround sound above for more on these decoding formats).
• The Auto Surround feature is canceled if you connect headphones or select the multichannel analog inputs.
2 If surround back processing (page 31) is switched to OFF, or the surround back speakers are set to NO (this happens automatically if the Surround back speaker setting on page 34 is set to anything but Normal (SB)), 2 Pro Logic IIx becomes 2 Pro
Logic II (5.1 channel sound).
3 If surround back processing (page 31) is switched to OFF, or the surround back speakers are set to NO (page 40), 2 Pro Logic
IIx becomes 2 Pro Logic II (5.1 channel sound).

Using Virtual Surround Back (VSB)
When you’re not using surround back
speakers, selecting this mode allows you to
hear a virtual surround back channel through
your surround speakers. You can choose to
listen to sources with no surround back
channel information, or if the material sounds
better in the format (for example, 5.1) for which
it was originally encoded, you can have the
receiver only apply this effect to 6.1 encoded
sources like Dolby Digital EX or DTS-ES.2
The table below indicates when you will hear
the surround back channel (=Sound plays
through surround back speaker(s)).
• Press SB ch (SB ch PROCESSING) to select
a virtual surround back channel option.
Each press cycles through the following:
• SB ON – 6.1 decoding is always used (for
example, a surround back channel will be
generated for 5.1 encoded material)
• SB AUTO – Automatically switches to 6.1
decoding for 6.1 encoded sources (for
example, Dolby Digital EX or DTS-ES)
• SB OFF – Maximum 5.1 playback

components
Setting the remote to control
other components
Many Pioneer components have SR CONTROL
jacks which can be used to link components
together so that you can use just the remote
sensor of one component. When you use a
remote control, the control signal is passed
along the chain to the appropriate
component.1
Most components can be assigned to one of
the MULTI CONTROL buttons using the
component’s manufacturer preset code stored
in the remote.
Note that if you use this feature, make sure that
you also have at least one set of analog audio or
video jacks connected to another component
for grounding purposes.
However, please note that there are cases
where only certain functions may be
controllable after assigning the proper preset
code, or the codes for the manufacturer in the
remote control will not work for the model that
you are using.2

Since both front and surround back speaker
terminals output the same audio, it doesn’t
matter which set (front or surround back) is
powering which part (Hi or Low) of the
speaker.
The reasons for bi-wiring are basically the
same as bi-amping, but additionally,
interference effects within the wire could be
reduced, producing better sound. Again, to do
this your speakers must be bi-wireable (that is
they must have separate terminals for the high
and low frequencies). When bi-wiring, make
sure you’ve selected Normal (SB) or Second
Zone in Surround back speaker setting on
page 34.

remove it for bi-amping. Doing so may
damage your speakers.

1 Connect your speakers as shown below.
This illustration below shows the connections
for bi-amping your front left speaker. Hook up
your front right speaker in the same way.
• Most speakers with both Hi and Low
terminals have two metal plates that
connect the Hi to the Low terminals. These
must be removed when you are bi-amping
the speakers or you could severely damage
the amplifier. See your speaker manual for
more information.
Français
Bi-amping is when you connect the high
frequency driver and low frequency driver of
your speakers to different amplifiers (in this
case, to both front and surround back
terminals) for better crossover performance.
Your speakers must be bi-ampable to do this
(having separate terminals for high and low)
and the sound improvement will depend on the
kind of speakers you’re using.
Caution
Deutsch
Bi-amping your front speakers
2 Select the ’Front Bi-Amp’ setting from
the ‘Surr Back System’ menu.
See Surround back speaker setting on page 34
to specify how you’re using the surround back
speaker terminals.
English
• SPAB – Sound is output from speaker
system A (up to 5 channels, depending on
the source), the two speakers in speaker
system B, and the subwoofer.
Multichannel sources (heard through
speaker system A) are downmixed for
stereo output from speaker system B.
• To bi-wire a speaker, connect two speaker
cords to the speaker terminal on the receiver.
Using a banana plug for the second
connection is recommended.
• Make sure that the + / – connections are
properly inserted.

• Make sure you use a parallel (not series,
which are fairly uncommon) connection
when bi-wiring your speakers.
• Don't connect different speakers from the
same terminal in this way.

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

We Want You Listening For A Lifetime
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit
you’ve just purchased is only the start of your
musical enjoyment. Now it’s time to consider how
you can maximize the fun and excitement your
equipment offers. This manufacturer and the
Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer
Electronics Group want you to get the most out of
your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that
lets the sound come through loud and clear without
annoying blaring or distortion-and, most importantly,
without affecting your sensitive hearing.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing
“comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound.
So what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and
harmful to your hearing. Guard against this by
setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your
hearing adapts.
Used wisely, your new sound equipment will
provide a lifetime of fun and enjoyment. Since
hearing damage from loud noise is often
undetectable until it is too late, this manufacturer
and the Electronic Industries Association’s
Consumer Electronics Group recommend you avoid
prolonged exposure to excessive noise. This list of
sound levels is included for your protection.
Decibel
Level Example
30
40
50
60
70
80
Quiet library, soft whispers
Living room, refrigerator, bedroom away from traffic
Light traffic, normal conversation, quiet office
Air conditioner at 20 feet, sewing machine
Vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, noisy restaurant
Average city traffic, garbage disposals, alarm clock
at two feet.
THE FOLLOWING NOISES CAN BE DANGEROUS
UNDER CONSTANT EXPOSURE
To establish a safe level:
• Start your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it
comfortably and clearly, and without distortion.
90 Subway, motorcycle, truck traffic, lawn mower
100 Garbage truck, chain saw, pneumatic drill
120 Rock band concert in front of speakers,
thunderclap
140 Gunshot blast, jet plane
180 Rocket launching pad
Once you have established a comfortable sound
level:
• Set the dial and leave it there.
Information courtesy of the Deafness Research Foundation.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent
hearing damage or loss in the future. After all, we
want you listening for a lifetime.
