Safety Precautions
Warning
To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose this unit to rain or moisture. Care should be taken to prevent objects or liquid from entering the enclosure. Never handle the power cord with wet hands.
• The lightning flash with arrowhead within a triangle is intended to alert the user of the presence of uninsulated "dangerous voltage" within the product's
enclosure that may constitute a risk of electric shock to you.
• The exclamation point within a triangle is intended to alert the user of the presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in
the literature accompanying the unit.
• Caution: To prevent the risk of electric shock, do not remove cover. No user-serviceable parts inside. Refer servicing to qualified service personnel.
• If an outdoor antenna is installed, be sure it is grounded to provide some protection against voltage surges and built up static charges. Keep outdoor
antennas away from power lines.
• Unplug the receiver from the AC outlet when plugging in or unplugging cables, when left unused for an extended period of time, when moving the
receiver, or when you suspect lightning in your area.
• Prevent damage to the power cord. Replace the power cord if it becomes damaged in any way. Always grasp the plug on the power cord when plugging
or unplugging the receiver from the AC outlet.
• Your system may produce sound levels capable of causing permanent hearing loss. Do not operate for extended periods of time at high volume levels.
• Protect the receiver from impact and place the receiver on a level surface.
• The receiver is equipped with raised feet to provide ventilation, reduce acoustic feedback, and protect against scratching the surface the unit is resting
on. B & K advises against removing the feet.
• Do not stack anything on top of the receiver (processor, source, etc.) Leave a minimum of 3" clearance from above the top of the receiver.
• The receiver should be located away from sources sensitive to heat.
• Do not perform any internal modifications to the receiver.
• Always connect the receiver's power cord to a dedicated AC outlet for normal operation.
• If young children are present, adult supervision should be provided until the children are capable of following all rules for safe operation.
• Mistaking CONTROL OUTPUT or IR INPUT connectors for audio/video inputs or outputs may damage your receiver or other components.
•It is recommended that the system speaker impedance seen by the amplifier channels of the receiver not fall below 4 ohms. Best amplifier thermal stability is achieved when the it operates into a 4 ohms or greater speaker load. The nominal impedance of most home speakers range between 4 and 8
ohms. Two 8 ohm speakers in parallel is equal to a 4 ohm (system impedance).
The receiver should be serviced by qualified personnel when:
A.
B.
C.
D.
The receiver is not functioning properly.

Quick Start Considerations
Your B&K receiver is pre-programmed for ease of operation right out of the box. In general, there is minimal setup required to start using your new A/V receiver. To
quickly setup and begin operating your receiver, follow these quick steps:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
Start with all AC power cords unplugged from their designated AC outlet.
From each source device, connect the A/V cables to the appropriate A/V SOURCE INPUTS on the receiver’s back panel.
Connect the speaker cables from the receiver’s SPEAKER OUTPUTS to the appropriate speakers.
Connect the appropriate video cables from the receiver’s video OUTPUTS to the video monitor’s input(s).
Plug each AC power cord into its designated AC outlet.
Turn on all A/V sources. Turn on the main power switch on the front of each unit. Press the ON/SLEEP button on the front panel of the receiver, or the ON button of the remote.
Select a source using the front panel source control of the receiver or with the SR10.1 remote control.
The rest of this manual will give further insight into the many aspects of your new receiver. Some additional installation considerations should be noted as follows:
•
It is important that your electronic equipment be located where there is proper ventilation. Failure to ventilate your receiver could result in erratic operation
and possible failure caused by overheating. A minimum of 3” clearance should be maintained above the receiver. Do not place items directly on top of the receiver. Do not place flammable items on, around or near the A/V equipment (Curtains, paper, etc.).
•
B&K supports various software programs that are able to aide in the setup process of the receiver/ preamplifier, SR10.1 remote and CK1.2 Keypad. This
software is available online at B&K’s website at www.bkcomp.com or by request from B&K’s customer service. The setup software is easy to use and is intended to simplify the setup process of your new B&K products.
• Configure a system diagram of all components that are to be connected into the system. The receiver has a total of 14 Audio and Video inputs. The back
panel is labeled In 1 to In 8 for Component Video, S-Video, Composite Video, Analog Audio Left + Right Inputs, Digital Coaxial and Digital Optical sources, in
most cases it is possible to connect any source to any input. HDMI inputs are labeled In 9 to In 14. You may assign Audio Inputs, In 1 through In 8(Analog or
Digital) to a HDMI Video Input. You may not assign the HDMI Audio to Video Inputs, In 1 through In 8. The source name by default is set to In1, In 2, In 3 etc...
The Inputs may be renamed in the Menu to reflect the source name, ex. In 9 may be change to Blu-Ray. The renamed source input name will appear on the
receiver’s front panel and the OSD (On Screen Display). The source input name on the remote or keypad may be relabeled to match the source equipment that
is being used.
•
Determine the type of cable that is needed. Keep in mind that the quality of the cabling that is used may make a difference in the overall audio and video
quality. Try to keep interconnecting cable runs as short as possible. When routing cables between equipment, be sure to keep AC cables separate from audio
cables. It is a good idea to bundle like cables together to keep interference (noise) to a minimum.
•
It is a good idea to label each cable with a name or number at both ends when allocating each cable. Have all the cables you need before you begin the
installation because it is inconvenient to run to the store when you are excited to hear what the system will sound like.
•
•
Plan enough cable length and space to allow future access to the back panel.
For best tuner reception, make sure the antenna is several feet away from the receiver and any other equipment that may produce high frequency interference such as personal computers, CD players, halogen lamps, etc.
•
For best performance it is recommended that a dedicated AC power line or supply be used. If the equipment is installed in a rack, be sure to insulate the
equipment from the rack itself.

Control I/O and Antenna - Hardware Connections
Control Output / Amp Enable
The Control Out and Amp Enable outputs are standard 1/8” mono mini-jack connections used for triggering such pieces as amplifiers,
screens, relays, etc. The output is a 100mA 5-24 VDC signal. The amp enabled output is active when the receiver is taken out of the
sleep/standby mode. The control output is active when the IR, RS-232 or Ethernet command is sent to enable the 12VDC signal. It is
disabled when the IR, RS-232 or Ethernet command is sent to disable the 12 VDC signal. Shown is the amp enable connection going
to the trigger input on an amplifier.
Control Input
One control input trigger is provided that may be used for theater events such as land-line telephone and doorbell notification. The control input trigger on the AVR 707 allows up to 24VAC or DC voltage sensing. Referred to as Page / Events, typical applications might
involve a doorbell and front door security camera. For example, when the doorbell is pressed, the AVR 707 could switch to a specific
A/V source input connected to a camera. The user may specify the duration and on screen message as part of the Page/Event. Wiring
diagrams for specific applications are available through B&K. Please see www.bkcomp.com or contact our Customer Service
Department for other specific applications.
AM / FM Antenna
The B&K receiver contains one internal AM/FM tuner. To connect the AM antenna, use the AM antenna connection block and the AM
antenna supplied. The AM connector is a ‘push pin type’ connection. Strip 1/4 inch of insulation off your AM antenna wires and insert one
wire end into each hole while holding the tabs down. Release the tabs to lock in the AM antenna wires. The FM connection is a standard screw F-type connector. Simply connect the supplied FM dipole antenna to this connection and route the leads for best reception.

HQV Video Processing
Temporal Noise Reduction
A temporal noise filter takes advantage of the fact that noise is a random element of the image that changes over time.
Instead of simply evaluating individual frames, a temporal noise filter evaluates several frames at once. By identifying the
differences between two frames and then removing that data from the final image, visible noise can be reduced very effectively. If there are no objects in motion, this is a virtually perfect noise-reduction technique that preserves most of the detail.
However, a problem arises if there are moving objects in the image, which also cause differences from one frame to the
next; of course, these differences should be retained. If moving objects are not distinguished from noise, a ghosting or
smearing effect is seen.
HQV processing uses a per-pixel motion-adaptive and noise-adaptive temporal filter to avoid the artificial appearance and
artifacts associated with conventional noise filters. To preserve maximum detail, moving pixels do not undergo unnecessary noise processing. In static areas, the strength of noise reduction is determined on a per-pixel basis, depending on the
level of noise in the surrounding pixels as well as in previous frames, allowing the filter to adapt to the amount of noise in
the image at any given time. The end result is a natural-looking picture with minimal noise and grain and maximum preservation of fine details.
Detail Enhancement
Detail enhancement brings out the fine detail in scenes and is important for SD and HD material. For example, it’s possible
to see blades of grass, small details on jackets, and wrinkles on faces. When combined with noise reduction and advanced
scaling, Reon-VX detail enhancement can make regular DVDs approach the quality of high-definition DVDs.
Block Noise Reduction
The goal of Block Noise Reduction is to minimize the very visible square edges around MPEG2 macroblocks caused by HF
detail being chucked away within square blocks, leaving just coarse detail (or DC) which emphasizes the block structure.
The Block Noise Reduction aims to reduce the visibility of the edges of the blocks when this compression kicks in.
Mosquito Noise Reduction
Satellite and cable providers, as well as PVRs, compress the signal to get the maximum content into the smallest space.
Reon-VX delivers high-quality codec (mosquito+block) noise reduction to remove the noise and artifacts caused by this
compression.
19
HQV Video Processing
Chroma Transient Improvement
Color transient improvement enhances color definition providing a natural, life-like image even from SD NTSC sources.
Luma Enhancement
Color video signals such as NTSC, PAL or SECAM types all have luminance (luma) and chrominance (chroma) components.
As the luma signal bandwidth is usually larger than the chroma signal bandwidth, luma edges changes occur much faster
than chroma edges changes. In other words, a luma signal transition occurs faster than a chroma signal transition.
Consequently, luma signal transitions usually appear degraded. With Luma Enhancement, the HQV Processing will enhance
the luma signal to give you vibrant video signals with no distracting picture blur.
Aspect Control
Using the power of Reon HQV video processing, the AVR 707 currently provides 5 programmed video aspect ratios for displaying video on a 16x9 monitor.
NONE - video is reproduced with no aspect ratio treatment.
PILLAR BOX - incoming horizontal video size is corrected to allow proper 4x3 image display.
STRETCH - incoming vertical video size is corrected to allow proper 2.35:1 image display.
ZOOM - incoming video is cropped to allow proper display when image contains horizontal and vertical bars.
WIDE - incoming video is increased horizontally to allow a 4x3 image to fill a 16x9 screen.
Additional Aspect Adjustemets
STRETCH +/- incoming video may be increased vertically in 1% increments to eliminate top and bottom black bars.
ZOOM +/- incoming video may be cropped in 1% increments to eliminate top, bottom, left and right black bars.

Operation and Control
SR 10.1 Remote Control Guide
Your B&K receiver is supplied with a state-of-the-art remote control. The SR 10.1 is a computer programmable learning remote. It may
be programmed to control any or all of the components in your system using IR. The setup software CD-ROM for the remote is supplied
in the box with the SR 10.1 or may be found on the B&K website www.bkcomp.com. Be sure to perform a Live Update after the software has been installed on your PC. For instructions on programming the SR 10.1 please see the Programming Manual.
The default program of the remote is setup to control all aspects of the AVR 707. Up to 20 devices may be stored and programmed on
the remote. Currently B&K ships the remote with 17 pre-programmed devices for use with 14 source inputs. A definition of the default
programming is below.
IN 1: Selects Input 1 on the B&K receiver.
IN 2: Selects Input 2 on the B&K receiver.
IN 3: Selects Input 3 on the B&K receiver.
IN 4: Selects Input 4 on the B&K receiver.
IN 5: Selects Input 5 on the B&K receiver.
IN 6: Selects Input 6 on the B&K receiver.
TUNER: Selects the tuner and jumps to the page with controls for the
AM/FM tuner on the B&K receiver.
VIDEO: Jumps to the page with controls for the video processing section of the B&K receiver.
AUDIO: Jumps to the page with controls for the audio processing of
the B&K receiver.
Note: Inputs IN 7 - IN 14 are available from Main Page 2.
Each device may be programmed to control the source associated with the input on the B&K receiver. The setup software contains a
database of various manufacturer’s IR codes for devices such as DVD players, CD players, music servers, TVs and more. IR commands
may also be learned directly into the SR 10.1 remote from the original source remote control.
The B&K device buttons at the bottom of the remote display screen contain the IR commands that pertain specifically to the B&K receiver. Once either Audio, Video or Tuner has been selected, press the PAGE button to step through the 4 pages of IR commands for the
specific function. Press the MAIN button to return to Main Page 1.
27
Operation and Control
The following pages outline the normal day-to-day operation of your receiver from the supplied SR10.1 remote control. All unit functions
may be directly controlled from the front panel. The SR10.1 remote is capable of controlling both the B&K receiver plus other source gear
in your system. This section will outline the usage of the SR10.1 Remote with your B&K receiver. The full programming manual of the
SR 10.1 is available on the website. All programming software and product manuals are available online at www.bkcomp.com.
Master Power On / Off
The master power switch located on the front panel of your receiver must be “ON” (pressed in) for the receiver to operate. When this
switch is OFF (out) all power is shut off. This will prevent turning it back on with the remote control or keypad. For normal day to day
operation, leave the master power switch in the ON position. Use the ON/SLEEP function for daily power on and off. This will allow the
receiver to be turned on and off (sleep/standby) from the remote control or keypad.
Whenever turning on the master power switch, you must wait approximately 15 seconds while the receiver restores its internal memory
and initializes system parameters. You may want to turn off the master power switch only when your receiver will be idle for extended
periods of time or during periods of power line fluctuations. The memory will not be lost while the master power switch is off.
On / Off / Sleep
For normal day to day operation, you will put your receiver in or out of SLEEP (standby) by using the ON (Active) and OFF (Sleep) buttons of the remote control. The Sleep/Standby mode keeps minimal functions running in order to allow the remote control or keypad to
quickly power the unit up. Note that the only front panel button that is lit while in sleep is the ON / SLEEP button. All other buttons and

Audio Modes and Speaker Selections
B&K incorporates a state-of-the-art software and hardware system that will prioritize the incoming audio signals (Plug n Play) and accordingly select
the appropriate number of speakers, two-channel surround decoder (Dolby Pro Logic IIx or DTS NEO:6) or multi-channel surround mode (Movie or
Music) depending on the user’s preference. Multi-channel encoded bitstreams (DTS and Dolby Digital) are automatically detected and selected for
any input. When a Dolby Digital or DTS multi-channel bitstream is detected, the number of speakers in the speaker setup menu are selected automatically. Plug n Play will give priority to digital bitstreams. If there is no multi-channel or two-channel digital bitstream present, Plug n Play will revert
to the analog audio (left and right) inputs using the default audio mode.
This receiver includes four audio listening modes; mono, stereo, surround and DVD-audio. Each input (14 inputs) may be configured for each audio
mode (3 audio modes), plus the DVD-Audio mode. The receiver will store audio preferences for each audio mode resulting in a one touch solution
for recalling specific settings for various types of multi-media formats. For normal operation, the Setup Inputs preferences should be configured for
the “favorite” (default) setting for each input. Occasionally, you may want to change the audio mode or speaker selection being used with an input.
To quickly change the audio mode simply select Mono, Stereo, Surround or DVD Audio via the remote control or the front panel Mode button. In addition, you may choose an audio listening mode immediately followed by a speaker selection. For example pressing STEREO-7 will select 7 speaker
stereo mode. Pressing SURR - 5 will select 5 speaker surround. If you are listening to a 2-channel bitstream, you may change the surround decoder
(Dolby Pro Logic IIx or DTS Neo:6) and the operating mode of the surround decoder (Movie, Music, Game) using the corresponding buttons on the
remote.
Audio Mode Usage
MONO - The audio signals are summed or down-mixed to produce a single mono channel which may then be distributed evenly to the desired number of speakers. It is also useful in the case of a large listening group when it is difficult to put everyone near the optimum listening position. To quickly recall the mono mode from the remote control, press the MONO button then the number of desired speakers 0-9.
STEREO - The unmodified Left and right audio signals are evenly distributed to the desired number of left and right speakers. The center channel
speaker receives a mono mix. Use this mode for true stereo listening or for expanding the stereo image to additional speakers. To quickly recall the
stereo mode from the remote control, press the STER button then the number of desired speakers 0-9.
SURROUND - This mode is used to extract multi-channel surround information from a 2-channel audio source using one of the two available surround decoder types (DTS NEO:6 & Dolby Pro Logic IIx). To quickly recall a surround mode from the remote control, press the PLIIx or NEO:6 button then the number of desired speakers 0-9. Movie, music and game modes may be selected using their own discrete IR command buttons.
You have a choice of two methods for simulating multi-channel sound from a two channel source - Dolby Pro Logic IIx and DTS Neo:6. These
decoders use different formulas for creating the simulated multi-channel sound field. Each decoder type provides a MOVIE and a MUSIC mode.
MOVIE places greater emphasis on the back speakers and MUSIC places greater emphasis on the surrounds. Dolby Pro Logic IIx and DTS provide
an adjustable MUSIC mode. MUSIC mode adjustments are for the center image (width), surround image (dimension), and front-to-surround image
(panorama). IMG + / -, DIM + / - and PAN + / - buttons may be set under Audio Preferences to adjust the various parameters for how the surround
field is created. Movie mode is fixed and has no audio adjustment options.
36
Audio Modes and Speaker Selections
Material correctly mixed for Dolby Pro Logic contains no bass information in the surround channels and therefore, Dolby requires that no surround
bass is mixed to the subwoofer when you have small surrounds. However, many video game systems do end up with bass information in the surrounds. In order to prevent loss of this bass information, PLIIx also provides GAME mode. GAME mode is otherwise identical to the MOVIE mode.
NEO:6 has no such requirements on surround bass - surround bass is allowed to be mixed to the sub regardless of the mode selected. NEO:6 has
no GAME mode.
The Surround mode is also used for multi-channel encoded bitstreams such as Dolby Digital and DTS. Selecting SURROUND-5 passes the 5 main
channels unmodified to the fronts, center, and surround speakers. Surround-6 engages Dolby Digital Surround EX or DTS Surround ES processing.
Dolby Digital EX must be selected manually. Both of these processes extract monophonic information from the surrounds and places it in the back
speaker(s). This is effective for material that has been mixed specifically for EX/ES, but may drastically reduce surround information for material that
is not specifically mixed for 6-channels. Dolby provides a variation of Pro Logic IIx for processing surround and back channels for 5.1 material to
make 7.1. Press SURROUND-7 to access this mode. Back speakers will contain 2 independent channels (stereo backs).
SURROUND-7 is the recommended mode for 5.1 material played back in seven channels. Upon detection of a DTS bitstream, the receiver will default
to FIVE speakers. If it is desired play back a DTS 5.1 bitstream in more than five channels, the selection must be configured manually. DTS also provides two variations for 6.1 material; DTS-ES Matrix (MTX) and DTS-ES Discrete. DTS-ES Matrix (MTX) is specifically mixed to provide a single
matrix surround back channel. The receiver will automatically select SURROUND-6 for ES MTX material with the same surround back information in
both back channels (mono). DTS-ES Discrete (DSC) provides a completely independent discrete back channel. The receiver will automatically select
SURROUND 6 for ES DSC material.
Multi-channel Analog - Use this audio mode with the analog outputs of a Blu-Ray-Ray player or any other 5.1 or 7.1 analog audio source device.
The Multi-channel analog input may be assigned to any input IN 1 - IN 14 and set for use with a 5.1 or 7.1 device. To quickly recall the DVD-Audio
mode from the remote control, press the DVD-A button. Currently, no equalization or Lip-Sync correction is applied while set to use the DVD Audio
input. Please see www.bkcomp.com for updates, when available.
Multi-channel PCM - Use this audio mode with the HDMI outputs of a Blu-Ray-Ray player or SACD 5.1 or 7.1 audio source device. The Multi-channel PCM or SACD may be selected simply by selecting the DVD-Audio mode while listening to an HDMI source capable of reproducing Multi-Channel
PCM or SACD content (see the specific players users manual and disc software title for further details). From the remote control, press the DVD-A
button. Currently, no equalization or Lip-Sync correction is applied while set to use the DVD Audio input. Please see www.bkcomp.com for updates, when
available.

Connecting and using the Virtual Mode
BKcSuite Setup and Overview
BKTask automatically installs a shortcut icon on the desktop [BKTask icon (grey)]. Make sure all other applications which use the serial port are closed
before opening the taskbar. B & K has the capability to connect in real-time (live) to any of our receivers or preamplifiers. However, it is recommended that all setup be done virtually to avoid system errors. Once the setup files have been created, connect to the unit and open the saved files. Typical
PC setup should follow the described procedure:
1. DO NOT CONNECT UNIT TO COMPUTER. This is considered virtual mode. Open BKcSuite A/V Setup from BKTask.
2. When Tool Suite is first opened, the Device Investigator automatically scans to find a connected B & K product. Choose “select
product for operation without a connected device.”
3. Select the product you wish to work with. Shown the the virtual
product set to AVR 707.
50
BKcSuite Setup and Overview
4. Create and save the system setup file using the Advanced Setup menu of BKcSuite.
5. Either let the program automatically scan com ports 1 through 4 at all baud rates or manually configure the com port and baud rate settings as shown below.
6. Connect the PC to the B & K product and run the device investigator. The unit will be found and connection will be established.
7. Once a live connection has been established, open the file previously created. Once the file is opened, it will overwrite the settings in the
B & K product with the settings configured in the setup file.
Note: While a live connection is established with a receiver or preamplifier, any changes made in BKcSuite will not immediately update inside
the unit itself until Download ALL or Download Page is selected. The system file should be saved on your computer as a backup. System settings are normally stored with a .xml file extension.

Speaker size refers to be frequency range a speaker can handle. Audio material, particularly Dolby Digital and DTS movies, often contain large amounts of
bass. If this bass information is sent to small speakers that are incapable of
reproducing bass, then this information will be lost of distorted. Too much
bass may damage small speakers. By configuring the receiver for the correct
type of speakers, all bass information will be appropriately route the speakers
that are best able to reproduce it correctly. Typically bookshelf or satellite
speakers are considered small. Smaller floor standing speakers with a single
8” or less woofer should also be considered small. Floor standing speakers
with 10” or larger woofers, or multiple smaller woofers may be considered
large. These are general guidelines only - if you are unsure, please consult
your speaker manufacturer or dealer. If using large speakers then the system
may not require a subwoofer, however better results may still be obtained with
the use of a subwoofer. Even with speakers are capable of reproducing deep
bass, better overall bass response may be obtained by setting these speakers
to small. This allows bass to be reproduced from a single point (the subwoofer)
and avoids the possibility of phase cancellation which may occur when bass is
reproduced from multiple speakers.
Front Speakers - There must be at least 2 front speakers in order to use your receiver. Set these channels to small or large based on the guidelines described above.
Center Speaker - It is not necessary to have a center speaker. Set it to small or large based on the guidelines above. Or, if there is no center
speaker set it to none. The center information will be reproduced in the front left and right speakers. No audio information is lost, however the
sense of voices coming from the screen may be lost.
Surround Speakers - It is not necessary to have surround speakers. Set them to small or large based on the guidelines above. Or, if there are
no surround speakers set them to none. The surround information will be reproduced in the front left and right speakers. No information is lost
but the sense of spaciousness provided by discrete 5.1 channel sound tracks or 2 channel tracks enhanced by Dolby Pro Logic IIx or DTS Neo:
6 may be lost.
Surround Back Speakers - It is not necessary to have back speakers, however back speakers may not be used unless surround speakers are
used. If the surround speakers are set to none, no options will appear for the surround back speakers. There is the option to use 1 or 2 back
speakers in either large or small varieties. If set to none, the back information will be reproduced in the surround speakers and although no information is lost, the sense of sounds coming from directly behind you may be lost.
52
BKcSuite System Settings - Audio
Subwoofer - There are three choices for subwoofer. If set to none, all based information including LFE (.1 channel) will be routed to any large
speakers in the setup above. If there are no large speakers and no sub, the bass information will be lost. The most common setting for subwoofer
is Yes. The LFE channel and bass information from any small speakers is reproduced in the sub. Bass information from large speakers is reproduced only in the large speakers, it is not sent to the sub. B&K proved a third setting called Ultra. Ultra is identical to Yes as far as LFE and small
speakers, but bass information from large speakers is reproduced in large speakers AND the sub therefore allowing bass to be reproduced from
multiple locations in the room.
Speaker Location
Ideally the speakers should be positioned at an equal distance from the listening position. However, physical limitations usually require placing the speakers
in other than optimum locations. The surround receiver contains a means to
electronically move each speaker’s location. This allows for superior reproduction of the directional cues available during movie or music playback. Measure
the distance in feet from your listening position to each speaker. Enter this
information into BK Suite. Units may be changed to meters if preferred.
Speaker Level
Speaker level calibration will generate pink noise to allow the equalization of
the volume levels of each speaker to make up for differences in speaker characteristics and distances from from the listener to the speakers. Best results
will be achieved using a Sound Pressure Level (SPL) meter. Set it to C
Weighting and Slow Response. Place the meter at your listening position and
adjust each speaker for an equal response (An SPL of 75 dB is recommended).
Note: The tone generator and noise selection settings in BK Suite will appear
once a AVR 707 is found and the Speaker Level is selected. This is the only
time this option will appear.
53
Crossover and LFE
BKcSuite System Settings - Audio
Crossover Frequency - Sets the frequency at which bass tones are filtered
from the small speaker channels and sent to the subwoofer. The crossover
point is the frequency at which the amount of information in the subwoofer and
main speaker(s) is equal. Set this according to the capabilities of the speakers
and/or subwoofer. When speakers are set to small, the crossover and above
is sent to the subwoofer. When the subwoofer is set to Yes or Ultra, the
crossover and below is sent to the subwoofer (except when set to None).
High Pass / Low Pass Slope - There is a gradual transition when crossing the
signal from the speakers to the subwoofer. The crossover slope determines
how gradual or abrupt this transition occurs (6, 12 or 24 dB). More gradual
slopes generally result in a smoother transition from speakers to subwoofer.
However, gradual transitions may cause distortion in small speakers due to too
much bass information. The low pass slope may be set to NONE which will
send full range to the subwoofer output allowing an external crossover to handle the low pass slope. If the subwoofer has an off or bypass selection for it's
internal crossover, we recommend setting it to off and using the receiver's crossover.
LFE Level - Used to increase or decrease the subwoofer level. The subwoofer signal may want to be increased or decreased depending on the
room or installation. Usually this will be set to 0.0 dB (default). Note that this effects only the separate LFE (.1) or subwoofer channel available
on source material. There is no effect on the reproduction of normal bass from the front, center, or surround channels.
Room Equalization
Sometimes it may be desirable to boost or reduce the levels above or below
a certain frequency. This might be used to make up for small deficiencies in
the listening room or speakers. The equalization may be applied only to certain speakers. This might be used to obtain a more consistent timbre between
unmatched speakers. For example, if only the front speakers need to have
frequencies above 10kHz boosted 1dB, then room equalization setup menu
will be adjusted as shown right. In some home theaters the center speaker is
installed behind a projection screen. The screen will tend to cut the high frequencies. Applying a high boost only to the center channel can compensate
for the losses introduced by the screen. Or possibly center and front left/right
speakers are behind the screen. A high boost may be applied to all three of
these speakers with no effect on the surround or back speakers. Shelving
equalization helps to adjust level and frequency to aid in adjusting your room
for a flat frequency response. Room Equalization parameters are applied
globally regardless of the selected user EQ (Variable EQ, the Loudness EQ,
Cinema EQ or the Vocal EQ).
54
Room Resonance (Notch Filters)
BKcSuite System Settings - Audio
No speaker has perfectly flat frequency response. These deviations in frequency response contribute to each speaker's characteristic sound. This is why one
speaker might be preferred over another. When a speaker is put into a room
with walls, floor and a ceiling, reflected sounds can cancel or reinforce one
another which further alters the frequency response.
At higher frequencies, hundreds of small peaks and dips can be measured in
the frequency response. Attempts to remove all these small deviations would
result in colorations to the sound that may not be desirable. The characteristic
sound that made the particular speaker(s) attractive could be completely lost.
Even if the hundreds of small peaks and dips would be adjusted, it would only
be correct for a single position in the room. Moving your head just a few inches would require a completely different set of corrections.
At low frequencies, the picture is different. There are fewer peaks and dips, but
they are much more dramatic. The peaks and dips persist over a much larger
portion of the listening area. Dips can't be corrected electronically. Putting out more power at the dip frequency won't help. If the original and
reflected waves cancel each other, they will cancel at 1 watt or 1000 watts. If you have 1 watt dips in the frequency response you can try repositioning your speakers, particularly the subwoofer. Fortunately, dips in the bass response are typically not that noticeable. When an instrument
plays that particular frequency, the bass is lost, but the higher harmonics of the instruments tone are still there. To some degree, your ear and
brain will fill in the missing information.
See the following page to set up the notch filters.

7.1.
Multi-Channel Analog Input - The receiver provides one set of multi-channel
analog inputs that may be assigned to any A/V input. When assigned to an
Input 1 through 8, the audio may be switched to or from the multi-channel analog inputs using the IR or BKC-DIP Serial codes. When assigned to an Input 9
through 14, the audio may only be assigned to the multi-channel analog input
through the menu.
Balanced Analog - NOT USED WITH THE AVR 707 RECEIVER.
AES/EBU - NOT USED WITH THE AVR 707 RECEIVER.
Input 9 through Input 14 - Video from any HDMI input may be assigned to be linked with audio from any optical digital, coax digital or two channel analog input 1 through 9.
Max Level / Surround Mode
Max Level - Set to limit the maximum system volume level.
Surround Mode - Set to Auto for automatic Stereo to Movie mode changes if
multi-channel 5.1 to 7.1 audio bitstreams (Dolby Digital or DTS) are detected.
Set to Manual if this feature is not desired.
57
Video Settings
BKcSuite System Settings - Video
Output Mode - Select the native resolution of your HD television or Monitor.
Note: for use with any 50Hz, 1080p60Hz or 1080p60/24Hz, ensure your
Monitor supports the selected resolution as video may not be visible.
Record Out - Set to the appropriate video record device output format. Select
composite / S-video for use with most DVD recorders. Select Component resolution for use with other more powerful video recorders.
Menu Transparency - Set to the desired opacity for use with OSD menu overlays and video pop up messages i.e. volume status.
Lip Sync - Set this to correct for the native Lip-Sync delay of the connected
video monitor. One video frame is approximately 17mS delay. Modern HD monitors may have up to 5 frames of delay.
Video Power Off Type - Set this to off when it is desired to not output video while the receiver is in the sleep / standby mode. This allows an
attached video monitor with video signal sensing to to turn itself On / Off automatically. Set to black if it is desired to blank all video while in sleep.
Size - Set to compensate for the connected monitors video over or under scan.
Horizontal Position - Set to compensate for the connected monitors horizontal left or right shift.
Vertical Position - Set to compensate for the connected monitors vertical up or down shift.
Note: Horizontal and Vertical position parameters are only valid for correction when the “Size” correction adjustment is set to less than or greater
than 0.
58
Zone ID
BKcSuite System Settings - Control
The product ID (IR code set) may be adjusted if operation
with other B&K products is required. The default ID is 001 for
the AVR 707. The receiver may be assigned to any ID (B&K
code set) between 001 and 127. This allows different B&K
surround processors to operate independently using different remote controls. This feature is typically useful if multiple pieces of B&K equipment are
used in the same system (including B&K CT whole house audio systems). Code set 000 “whole house” operates all B&K equipment simultaneously.
Control In / Page Event
Control In - Parameters useful for interface to door bell and or security system
interfaces.
RS-232 Control Port
Baud Rate - B & K does not recommend using any baud rate other than 9600. The
default baud rate is 9600. When other baud rates are used, keypad feedback status and keypad synchronization might be lost.
RS-232 Echo Enabled - This setting is used when external control systems are
connected to B & K product via any serial port, RS-232, Ethernet or USB. The echo
will repeat any serial BKC-DIP transmission received through a serial I/O port.
RS-232 Feedback Selection (Continuous Reply) Disabled - (Default) - No BKC-DIP Update or Reply is generated.
Update - An Update message, which represents the specific current state of the
receiver, is sent when there is a change in a logical zone’s state. Then, the receiver must be polled to determine the current status.
Reply - When feedback selection set to “REPLY”, the unit will automatically generate BKC-DIP reply messages to allow unsolicited continuous feedback to the
external controller. Whenever a change is executed in a logical zone, a BKC-DIP
reply message will automatically be generated. The reply message represents the
new state of the affected logical zone. I.e. System change to Volume, Bass, Treble, EQ, Source and/or Tuner Frequency.
Both - Outputs both BKC-DIP Update and BKC-DIP Reply message.
RS-232 Receive & Transmit ID - Used in sophisticated configurations such as Serial Macros, the Receive and Transmit ID in B & K RS-232 protocol allows B & K product to “listen” (receive ID) or “talk” (transmit ID) to other B & K products. The programmer may need to change the identifier when
external automation systems need to control more than one B & K product. For instance, if you need to send a CT receiver an IR triggered RS-232
macro (to power off the CT) from a AVR 707, you should set the Transmit ID of the AVR 707 to 1 and the Receive ID of the CT to 1, and set the
Transmit of the CT to 0 and the Receive ID of the AVR 707 to 0.
Note - If you change the Receive or Transmit ID, it does not affect the setup in BKcSuite.

Security Options
BKcSuite System Settings - Control
Front Panel Buttons - When you disable the front panel buttons, the only button
that still has any affect is the master power On/Off button. A touch of any other button brings the word “Locked” to the display.
Memory Locked - This will prevent the user from saving any changes to presets
or system settings.
Setup Advanced Menu - If set to Hidden, the user may not access the setup
menu.
Rear Panel IR Control - This sets the unit as to whether the 1/8” mini-jack ‘IR IN’
is enabled or not.
Plug and Play Timing
Plug and play timing pertains to the internal delays associated with the Plug n Play
audio detection system. Do not adjust these parameters unless there is a problem detecting audio.
The receiver has default audio Plug n Play settings that work with the majority of
A/V sources and digital audio bitstreams. However, with the introduction of new A/V
products into the market place, these Plug n Play audio detection parameters may
need to be adjusted to improve upon the listening experience. Changing the plug
and play timing would adjust the mute timing of the audio before you hear pops and
clicks when there is a digital audio bitstream error. Although your receiver’s muting
circuitry may stop most of the digital errors from being heard, it does not guarantee that a digital error may never be heard.
The Plug n Play menu may be used to adjust mute times while the receiver is automatically switching between different types of digital audio formats (AC3 5.1 / DTS
5.0 / DTS 5.1, PCM). Usually these audio pops and snaps may be traced to a digital error on the incoming digital audio bitstream and corrected with a simple Mute Time adjustment.
Mute Time - 1.0 Sets the mute time for use with invalid digital audio information. In addition it is used to mute when a digital signal first appears or
changes modes.
Digital Sticky - 2.5 Only applies to changes from any digital audio mode back to analog. This parameter may be set long because most Cable and
SAT receivers drop the digital audio bitstream when changing channels and there is really no need to revert back to analog.
Mode Sticky - 0.1 Only applies to changes from AC3 or DTS to PCM. Many DVD players drop to PCM when skipping tracks.
Parameters Sticky - 0.1 Applies to how quickly the receiver will react to changes in sample rate, number of speaker channels in the bitstream, etc.
Setting this parameter longer reduces the chance that the receiver will respond to an erroneous change but does increases the likelihood of muting
the audio at the start of an audio playback.
