2 CAUTIONS ON INSTALLATION
0.3 ft (10 cm) or more
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.
For heat dispersal, leave at least 0.3 ft (10 cm) of space between
the top, back and sides of this unit and the wall or other
components.
B
0.3 ft (10 cm) or more
wall
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 operation switch is in the STANDBY
state, the apparatus is still connected on some AC line
voltages.
Please be sure to unplug the cord when you leave home for,
say, a vacation.
• Muting of PRE OUT jack, HEADPHONE jack and SPEAKER
terminals
The PRE OUT jack, HEADPHONE jack and SPEAKER terminals
include a muting circuit. Because of this, the output signals are
greatly reduced for several seconds after the power operation
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. Dolby Pro Logic II decoder
Dolby Pro Logic II is a new format for playing multichannel audio
signals that offers improvements over conventional Dolby Pro
Logic. It can be used to decode not only sources recorded in
Dolby Surround but also regular stereo sources into five channels
(front left/right, center and surround left/right). In addition, various
parameters can be set according to the type of source and the
contents, so you can adjust the sound field with greater precision.
2. Dolby Digital decoder
Dolby Digital, a digital discrete system in which the different
channels are completely independent, recreates “threedimensional” sound fields (sounds with a sense of distance,
movement and position) with no crosstalk between channels for
greater reality. In addition, the 5 channels (excluding the 0.1
channel for low frequency effects) have a playback range
extending to 20 kHz, the same as the range of CDs, thus resulting
in clearer, more richly expressive sound.
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. High performance DSP simulates 7 sound fields
Playback is possible in 7 surround modes: 5-channel Stereo, Mono
Movie, Rock Arena, Jazz Club, Video Game, Matrix and Virtual.
You can enjoy a variety of sound effects for different movie
scenes and program sources even with stereo sources not in
Dolby Surround.
5. Personal Memory Plus function
Personal Memory Plus is an advanced version of Personal
Memory. With Personal Memory Plus, the set automatically
memorizes the surround mode, channel volume, surround
parameters, etc., for each of the separate input sources.
6. Remote control unit with pre-memory function
This unit comes with a remote control unit equipped with a prememory function. The remote control command codes for
DENON remote controllable AV components as well as for LD
players, video decks, TVs, etc., of other major manufacturers are
prestored in the memory.
7. 6CH EXT. IN jack
This unit is equipped with 6CH EXT. IN jacks for use with audio
formats of the future.

Note to CATV system installer:
This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer’s
attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC which provides
guidelines for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies
that the cable ground shall be connected to the grounding
system of the building, as close to the point of cable entry as
practical.
Notes:
• Do not connect two FM antennas simultaneously.
• Even if an external AM antenna is used, do not disconnect
the AM loop antenna.
• Make sure AM loop antenna lead terminals do not touch
metal parts of the panel.
ENGLISH
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
• When speaker systems A and B are use separately, speakers with an
impedance of 6 to 16 Ω/ohms can be connected for use as front speakers.
• Be careful when using two pairs of front speakers (A + B) at the same time,
since use of speakers with an impedance of 12 to 16 Ω/ohms.
• Speakers with an impedance of 6 to 16 Ω/ohms can be connected for use
as center and 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.

• Precautions when connecting speakers
If a speaker is placed near a TV or video monitor, the
colors on the screen may be disturbed by the
speaker’s magnetism. If this should happen, move
the speaker away to a position where it does not
have this effect.

ENGLISH
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.

30°
30°
Approx. 23 feet/7 m
B
NOTES:
• The remote control unit can be used from a straight distance of
approximately 23 feet/7 meters, but this distance will shorten or
operation will become difficult if there are obstacles between the
remote control unit and the remote control sensor, if the remote
control sensor is exposed to direct sunlight or other strong light, or
if operated from an angle.
• Neon signs or other devices emitting pulse-type noise nearby may
result in malfunction, so keep the set as far away from such
devices as possible.
Inserting the batteries
q Press as shown by the arrow and slide
off.
w Insert the R6P/AA batteries properly, as
shown on the diagram.
e Close the lid.
NOTES:
• Use only R6P/AA batteries for replacement.
• Be sure the polarities are correct. (See the illustration inside the battery compartment.)
• Remove the batteries if the remote control transmitter will not be used for an extended period of time.
• If batteries leak, dispose of them immediately. Avoid touching the leaked material or letting it come in contact with clothing, etc. Clean the
battery compartment thoroughly before installing new batteries.
• Have replacement batteries on hand so that the old batteries can be replaced as quickly as possible when the time comes.
• Even if less than a year has passed, replace the batteries with new ones if the set does not operate even when the remote control unit is
operated nearby the set. (The included battery is only for verifying operation. Replace it with a new battery as soon as possible.)

NOTES:
— Assignment of low frequency signal range —
• The 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. 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 pages 17, 18).
If “SMALL” is set for the front speakers or “NO” is set for the subwoofer, the subwoofer mode setting does not affect playback of low
frequency signal range.
• When the “+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.
• When the “NORM” playback mode is selected, the low frequency signal range of channels set to “LARGE” are only produced from those
channels. In this playback mode there tends to be little interference of the low frequency range in the room.
• Try playing the music or movie source and select the playback mode providing the stronger low frequency range sound.

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.) Select one of the four
parameters (“OFF”, “LOW”, “MID” (middle) or “HI” (high)). Set to OFF for normal listening.

When Dolby Digital encoded software is played, it is recommended that the LFE LEVEL be set to 0 dB for correct Dolby Digital
playback.
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.

14 DSP SURROUND SIMULATION
• This unit is equipped with a high performance DSP (Digital Signal Processor) which uses digital signal processing to synthetically recreate the
sound field. One of 7 preset surround modes can be selected according to the program source and the parameters can be adjusted according
to the conditions in the listening room to achieve a more realistic, powerful sound. These surround modes can also be used for program sources
not recorded in Dolby Surround Pro Logic or Dolby Digital.
Surround modes and their features
1
5CH STEREO
In this mode, the signals of the front left channel are output from the left surround channel, the signals of the front
right channel are output from the right surround channel, and the same (in-phase) component of the left and right
channels is output from the center channel. This mode provides all speaker surround sound, but without directional
steering effects, and works with any stereo program source.

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.

6
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.
7
VIRTUAL
Select this mode to enjoy a virtual sound field, produced from the front 2-channel speakers.
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:
Only the STEREO mode 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 STEREO.
If the DTS signals are input during playback in VIRTUAL surround mode, the mode automatically switches to STEREO.
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.

18 ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
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) Basic setting
Use this setting if your main purpose is to listen to movie music and when using one set (two speakers) of regular single-way or two-way
speakers as the surround speakers.
Front speakers
Monitor
Center speaker
Subwoofer
45°
• Set the front speakers with their front surfaces as flush with the
TV or monitor screen as possible. Set the center speaker
between the front left and right speakers and no further from
the listening position than the front speakers.
• 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 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.

(2) 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 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.
Path of the surround sound from the
speakers to the listening position
• Set the front speakers, center speaker and subwoofer in the
same positions as in example (1).
• Set the surround speakers directly at the sides of the listening
position and 60 to 90 centimeters (2 to 3 feet) above ear level.
• 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.

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.

Please refer to the instruction manual of the adapter when making connection.
2 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 this unit, 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 this
unit.
(2) Dolby Pro Logic II
• Dolby Pro Logic II is a new multi-channel playback format developed by Dolby Laboratories using feedback logic steering technology and
offering improvements over conventional Dolby Pro Logic circuits.
• Dolby Pro Logic II can be used to decode not only sources recorded in Dolby Surround ( ) but also regular stereo sources into five channels
(front left, front right, center, surround left and surround right) to achieve surround sound.
• Whereas with conventional Dolby Pro Logic the surround channel playback frequency band was limited, Dolby Pro Logic II offers a wider
band range (20 Hz to 20 kHz or greater). In addition, the surround channels were monaural (the surround left and right channels were the
same) with previous Dolby Pro Logic, but Dolby Pro Logic II they are played as stereo signals.
• Various parameters can be set according to the type of source and the contents, so it is possible to achieve optimum decoding (see page
30).
Sources recorded in Dolby Surround
These are sources in which three or more channels of surround have been recorded as two channels of signals using Dolby Surround
encoding technology.
Dolby Surround is used for the sound tracks of movies recorded on DVDs, LDs and video cassettes to be played on stereo VCRs, as well
as for the stereo broadcast signals of FM radio, TV, satellite broadcasts and cable TV.
Decoding these signals with Dolby Pro Logic makes it possible to achieve multi-channel surround playback. The signals can also be played
on ordinary stereo equipment, in which case they provide normal stereo sound.
There are two types of DVD Dolby surround recording signals.
q 2-channel PCM stereo signals
w 2-channel Dolby Digital signals
When either of these signals is input to the AVR-1602, the surround mode is automatically set to Dolby Pro Logic II when the “DOLBY/DTS
SURROUND” mode is selected.

ENGLISH
DTS Digital Surround
Digital Theater 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 this unit, 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 this unit (see page 32) 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.

Note:
When a subwoofer has been connected and the virtual surround function is being used, the signal played from the subwoofer channel is LFE
only (only when playing Dolby Digital or DTS signals) for initial factory settings (i.e., the setting of the front speaker is “LARGE” and the setting
of the subwoofer mode is “NORM”).
When subwoofer effects are felt to be weak, while in the system setup mode try setting the subwoofer mode to “+MAIN”, or the front speaker
to “SMALL” in the Speaker Configuration settings.
Making these settings will result in the low-frequency sounds of the front channel being played from the subwoofer.
