Surround speakers (SR and SL)
Speaker placement
The speaker layout below shows the standard ITU-R*
speaker setting. You can use it to enjoy CINEMA DSP and
multi-channel audio sources.
The surround speakers are used for effect and surround
sounds. Place these speakers behind your listening
position, facing slightly inwards, about 1.8 m above the
floor.
Surround back speakers (SBR and SBL)
* ITU-R is the radio communication sector of the ITU
(International Telecommunication Union).

The surround back speakers supplement the surround
speakers and provide for more realistic front-to-back
transitions. Place these speakers directly behind the
listening position and at the same height as the surround
speakers. They should be positioned at least 30 cm apart.
Ideally, they should be positioned at the same width as the
front speakers.
PREPARATION
PL

SBR
30 cm or more
The use of a subwoofer, such as the YAMAHA Active
Servo Processing Subwoofer System, is effective not only
for reinforcing bass frequencies from any or all channels,
but also for high fidelity reproduction of the LFE (lowfrequency effect) channel included in Dolby Digital and
DTS software. The position of the subwoofer is not so
critical, because low bass sounds are not highly
directional. But it is better to place the subwoofer near the
front speakers. Turn it slightly toward the center of the
room to reduce wall reflections.
Presence speakers (PR and PL)
1.8 m
1.8 m
Presence speakers supplement the sound from the front
speakers with extra ambient effects produced by CINEMA
DSP (see page 49). These effects include sounds that
filmmakers intend to locate a little farther back behind the
screen in order to create more theater-like ambience. Place
these speakers at the front of the room about 0.5 – 1 m
outside the front speakers, facing slightly inwards, and
about 1.8 m above the floor.
Front speakers (FR and FL)
The front speakers are used for the main source sound plus
effect sounds. Place these speakers an equal distance from
the ideal listening position. The distance of each speaker
from each side of the video monitor should be the same.
Center speaker (C)
English
The center speaker is for the center channel sounds
(dialog, vocals, etc.). If for some reason it is not practical
to use a center speaker, you can do without it. Best results,
however, are obtained with the full system. Align the front
face of the center speaker with the front face of your video
monitor. Place the speaker centrally between the front
speakers and as close to the monitor as possible, such as
directly over or under it.

SPEAKER SETUP
Speaker connections
5
Tighten the knob to secure the wire.
Be sure to connect the left channel (L), right channel (R),
“+” (red) and “–” (black) properly. If the connections are
faulty, no sound will be heard from the speakers, and if the
polarity of the speaker connections is incorrect, the sound
will be unnatural and lack bass.

CAUTION
• If you will use 4 or 6 ohm speakers, be sure to
set this unit’s speaker impedance setting to 4
ohms before using (see page 23).
• Before connecting the speakers, make sure that the
power of this unit is off.
• Do not let the bare speaker wires touch each other or do
not let them touch any metal part of this unit. This
could damage this unit and/or speakers.
• Use magnetically shielded speakers. If this type of
speakers still creates the interference with the monitor,
place the speakers away from the monitor.
A speaker cord is actually a pair of insulated cables
running side by side. One cable is colored or shaped
differently, perhaps with a stripe, groove or ridges.
Connect the striped (grooved, etc.) cable to the “+” (red)
terminals on this unit and your speaker. Connect the plain
cable to the “–” (black) terminals.

Introduction
This receiver employs YAMAHA Parametric Room
Acoustic Optimizer (YPAO) technology which lets you
avoid troublesome listening-based speaker setup and
achieves highly accurate sound adjustments. The supplied
optimizer microphone collects and analyzes the sound
your speakers produce in your actual listening
environment.

YPAO performs the following checks and makes
appropriate adjustments to give you the best possible
sound from your system.
WIRING:
Checks which speakers are connected and the polarity of
each speaker.
SIZE:
Checks the speakers frequency response and sets the
crossover/high cut frequency for the subwoofer to improve
the sound relationship between the speakers and the
subwoofer.
DISTANCE:
Checks the distance of each speaker from the listening
position and adjusts the delay of each channel so that the
sound from each speaker reaches the listening position at
the same time. Also checks the phase of each speaker.
EQUALIZING:
Adjusts frequency and levels of each channel’s parametric
equalizer to reduce coloration across the channels and
create a cohesive sound field. This is particularly
important if you use different brands or sizes of speakers
for some channels or have a room with unique sonic
characteristics.
YPAO equalizing calibration incorporates three
parameters (frequency, level and Q factor) for each of the
seven bands in its parametric equalizer to provide highly
precise automatic adjustment of frequency characteristics.
LEVEL:
Checks and adjusts the sound level (volume) of each
speaker.

station.
PS
• Do not press FREQ/TEXT until a Radio Data System indicator
lights up in the front panel display. You cannot change the mode
if you press the button prior to this. This is because this unit has
not finished receiving all of the Radio Data System data from
the station.
• Radio Data System data not offered by the station cannot be
selected.
• This unit cannot utilize the Radio Data System data source if
the signal received is not strong enough. In particular, the RT
mode requires a large amount of data, so it is possible that the
RT mode may not be displayed even if other Radio Data System
modes (PS, PTY, etc.) are displayed.
• Radio Data System data may not be received under poor
reception conditions. In such cases, press TUNING MODE
(AUTO/MAN’L MONO) so that the AUTO indicator
disappears from the front panel display. Although this will
change the reception mode to manual, Radio Data System data
may be displayed when you change the display to Radio Data
System mode.
• If the signal strength is weakened by external interference
during the reception of a Radio Data System station, the Radio
Data System data service may be cut off suddenly and
“...WAIT” will appear in the front panel display.

Notes
• When this unit is set in the standby mode, you cannot record
between other components connected to this unit.
• The setting of TONE CONTROL, VOLUME, “SPEAKER
LEVEL” (page 59) and programs does not affect recorded
material.
• A source connected to the MULTI CH INPUT jacks of this unit
cannot be recorded.
• S-video and composite video signals pass independently
through this unit’s video circuits. Therefore, when recording or
dubbing video signals, if your video source component is
connected to provide only an S-video (or only a composite
video) signal, you can record only an S-video (or only a
composite video) signal to your VCR.
• Digital signals input to the DIGITAL INPUT jacks are not
output to the analog AUDIO OUT (L/R) jacks for recording.
Likewise, analog signals input to the AUDIO IN (L/R) jacks are
not output to the DIGITAL OUTPUT jack. Therefore, if your
source component is connected to provide only digital (or
analog) signals, you can only record digital (or analog) signals.
• A given input source is not output on the same REC OUT
channel. (For example, the signal input from VCR 1 IN is not
output on VCR 1 OUT.)
• Check the copyright laws in your country to record from
records, CDs, radio, etc. Recording of copyrighted material may
infringe copyright laws.
If you playback a video source that uses scrambled or
encoded signals to prevent it from being dubbed, the
picture itself may be disturbed due to those signals.
■ Special considerations when recording
DTS software
The DTS signal is a digital bitstream. Attempting to
digitally record the DTS bitstream will result in noise
being recorded. Therefore, if you want to use this unit to
record sources that have DTS signals recorded on them,
the following considerations and adjustments need to be
made.
For DVDs and CDs encoded with DTS, when your player
is compatible with the DTS format, follow its operating
instructions to make a setting so that the analog signal will
be output from the player.
SOUND FIELD PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS
SOUND FIELD PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS
This unit is equipped with a variety of precise digital decoders that allow you to enjoy multi-channel playback from
almost any sound source (stereo or multi-channel). This unit is also equipped with a YAMAHA digital sound field
processing (DSP) chip containing several sound field programs which you can use to enhance your playback experience.
Most of these sound field programs are precise digital recreations of actual acoustic environments found in famous
concert halls, music venues, and movie theaters.
y
The YAMAHA CINEMA DSP modes are compatible with all Dolby Digital, DTS, and Dolby Surround sources. Set the input mode to
AUTO (see page 37) to enable this unit to automatically switch to the appropriate digital decoder according to the input signal.
Notes
• This unit’s DSP sound field programs are recreations of real-world acoustic environments made from precise measurements taken in
the actual hall, etc. Thus you may notice variations in the strength of the reflections coming from the front, back, left and right.
• Feel free to choose a sound field program based on your listening preference, and not purely on the name of the program itself.
For movie/video sources
You can select from the following sound fields when playing movie or video sources. The sound fields marked “MULTI”
can be used with multi-channel sources, like DVD, digital TV, etc. Those marked “2-CH” can be used with 2-channel
(stereo) sources like TV programs, video tapes, etc.
Program selection methods vary depending on sound field program types. For details on how to
select sound field programs, see “Selecting sound field programs” on pages 32 to 36.

ZONE 2 (RX-V757 ONLY)
ZONE 2 (RX-V757 ONLY)
This unit allows you to configure a multi-room audio system. You can control this unit from the second room using the
supplied remote control.
Only analog signals are sent to the second room. Any source you want to listen to in the second room must be
connected using the analog (AUDIO L/R) input jacks on this unit.
Zone 2 connections
You need the following additional equipment to use the multi-room functions of this unit:
• An infrared signal receiver in the second room.
• An infrared emitter in the main room. This emitter transmits the infrared signals from the remote control in the second
room to the main room (to a CD player, for example).
• An amplifier and speakers for the second room.
y
• Since there are many possible ways to connect and use this unit in a multi-room installation, we recommend that you consult with your
nearest authorized YAMAHA dealer or service center about the Zone 2 connections that best meet your requirements.
• Some YAMAHA models are able to connect directly to the REMOTE CONTROL OUT jack of this unit. If you own these products,
you may not need to use an infrared emitter. Up to 6 YAMAHA components can be connected as shown.

■ Special considerations for DTS software
The DTS signal is a digital bitstream. If you attempt to
send the DTS signal to the second room you will only hear
digital noise (that may damage your speakers). Thus, the
following considerations and adjustments need to be made
when playing DTS-encoded discs.
For DVDs encoded in DTS
Only 2 channel analog audio signals may be sent to the
second room.
Use the disc menu to set the DVD player’s mixed
2-channel left and right audio outputs to the PCM or
Dolby Digital soundtrack.
For CDs encoded in DTS
To avoid unexpected noise, DO NOT USE the Zone 2
feature with CDs encoded in DTS.
EDITING SOUND FIELD PARAMETERS
EDITING SOUND FIELD PARAMETERS
What is a sound field
What really creates the rich, full tones of a live instrument
are the multiple reflections from the walls of the room. In
addition to making the sound “live”, these reflections
enable us to tell where the player is situated, and the size
and shape of the room in which we are sitting.
Changing parameter settings
You can enjoy good quality sound with the factory preset
parameters. Although you do not have to change the initial
settings, you can change some of the parameters to better
suit the input source or your listening room.

If you could create the appropriate early reflections and

The acoustics in your room could be changed to those of a

Early reflections
Reflected sounds reach our ears extremely rapidly (50 ms
– 100 ms after the direct sound), after reflecting from one
surface only – for example, from the ceiling or a wall.
Early reflections actually add clarity to the direct sound.
Reverberations
These are caused by reflections from more than one
surface – walls, ceiling, the back of the room – so
numerous that they merge together to form a continuous
sonic “afterglow”. They are non-directional, and lessen
the clarity of the direct sound.

SOUND FIELD PARAMETER DESCRIPTIONS
SOUND FIELD PARAMETER DESCRIPTIONS
You can adjust the values of certain digital sound field parameters so the sound fields are recreated accurately in your
listening room. Not all of the following parameters are found in every program.
■ DSP LEVEL (DSP level)
Function:
Description:
Control range:
Adjusts the level of all the DSP effect sounds within a narrow range.
Depending on the acoustics of your listening room, you may want to increase or decrease the DSP
effect level relative to the level of the direct sound.
–6 dB to +3 dB
■ INIT. DLY/P. INIT. DLY (Initial delay)
Function:
Description:
Control range:
Changes the apparent distance from the source sound by adjusting the delay between the direct sound
and the first reflection heard by the listener.
The smaller the value, the closer the sound source seems to the listener. The larger the value, the farther
it seems. For a small room, set to a small value. For a large room, set to a large value.

■ ROOM SIZE/P. ROOM SIZE (Room size)
Function:
Description:
Control range:
Adjusts the apparent size of the surround sound field. The larger the value, the larger the surround
sound field becomes.
As the sound is repeatedly reflected around a room, the larger the hall is, the longer the time between
the original reflected sound and the subsequent reflections. By controlling the time between the
reflected sounds, you can change the apparent size of the virtual venue. Changing this parameter from
one to two, doubles the apparent length of the room.

■ LIVENESS (Liveness)
Function:
Description:
Control range:
Adjusts the reflectivity of the virtual walls in the hall by changing the rate at which the early reflections
decay.
The early reflections of a sound source decay much faster in a room with acoustically absorbent wall
surfaces than in one which has highly reflective surfaces. A room with acoustically absorbent surfaces
is referred to as “dead”, while a room with highly reflective surfaces is referred to as “live”. The
LIVENESS parameter lets you adjust the early reflection decay rate, and thus the “liveness” of the
room.

Audio formats
■ Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is a digital surround sound system that gives
you completely independent multi-channel audio. With 3
front channels (left, center, and right), and 2 surround
stereo channels, Dolby Digital provides 5 full-range audio
channels. With an additional channel especially for bass
effects, called LFE (low frequency effect), the system has
a total of 5.1-channels (LFE is counted as 0.1 channel). By
using 2-channel stereo for the surround speakers, more
accurate moving sound effects and surround sound
environment are possible than with Dolby Surround. The
wide dynamic range (from maximum to minimum
volume) reproduced by the 5 full-range channels and the
precise sound orientation generated using digital sound
processing provide listeners with previously unheard of
excitement and realism.
With this unit, any sound environment from monaural up
to a 5.1-channel configuration can be freely selected for
your enjoyment.
■ Dolby Digital EX
Dolby Digital EX creates 6 full-bandwidth output
channels from 5.1-channel sources. This is done using a
matrix decoder that derives 3 surround channels from the
2 in the original recording. For the best results, Dolby
Digital EX should be used with movie sound tracks
recorded with Dolby Digital Surround EX. With this
additional channel, you can experience more dynamic and
realistic moving sound especially with scenes with
“flyover” and “fly-around” effects.
■ Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II is an improved technique used to
decode vast numbers of existing Dolby Surround software.
This new technology enables a discrete 5-channel
playback with 2 front left and right channels, 1 center
channel, and 2 surround left and right channels (instead of
only 1 surround channel for conventional Pro Logic
technology). Music and Game modes are also available for
2-channel sources in addition to the Movie mode.
■ Dolby Pro Logic IIx
Dolby Pro Logic IIx is a new technology enabling discrete
multi-channel playback from 2-channel or multi-channel
sources. There is a Music mode for music, a Movie mode
for movies and a Game mode for games.
92
■ Dolby Surround
Dolby Surround uses a 4 channel analog recording system
to reproduce realistic and dynamic sound effects: 2 front
left and right channels (stereo), a center channel for dialog
(monaural), and a surround channel for special sound
effects (monaural). The surround channel reproduces
sound within a narrow frequency range.
Dolby Surround is widely used with nearly all video tapes
and laser discs, and in many TV and cable broadcasts as
well. The Dolby Pro Logic decoder built into this unit
employs a digital signal processing system that
automatically stabilizes the volume on each channel to
enhance moving sound effects and directionality.
■ DTS 96/24
DTS 96/24 offers an unprecedented level of audio quality
for multi-channel sound on DVD-Video, and is fully
backward-compatible with all DTS decoders. “96” refers
to a 96 kHz sampling rate (compared to the typical 48 kHz
sampling rate). “24” refers to 24-bit word length. DTS 96/
24 offers sound quality transparent to the original 96/24
master, and 96/24 5.1-channel sound with full-quality fullmotion video for music programs and motion picture
soundtracks on DVD-video.
■ DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
Digital Surround
DTS digital surround was developed to replace the analog
soundtracks of movies with a 6-channel digital sound
track, and is now rapidly gaining popularity in movie
theaters around the world. Digital Theater Systems Inc.
has developed a home theater system so that you can enjoy
the depth of sound and natural spatial representation of
DTS digital surround in your home. This system produces
practically distortion-free 6-channel sound (technically, a
left, right and center channels, 2 surround channels, plus
an LFE 0.1 channel as a subwoofer, for a total of 5.1channels). The unit incorporates DTS-ES decoder that
enables 6.1-channel reproduction by adding the surround
back channel to existing 5.1-channel format.
■ Neo:6
Neo:6 decodes the conventional 2-channel sources for 6
channel playback by the specific decoder. It enables
playback with the full-range channels with higher
separation just like digital discrete signal playback. Two
modes are available: “Music mode” for playing music
sources and “Cinema mode” for movies.

Sound field programs
Audio information
■ CINEMA DSP
■ ITU-R
Since the Dolby Surround and DTS systems were
originally designed for use in movie theaters, their effect
is best felt in a theater having many speakers and designed
for acoustic effects. Since home conditions, such as room
size, wall material, number of speakers, and so on, can
differ so widely, it’s inevitable that there are differences in
the sound heard as well. Based on a wealth of actually
measured data, YAMAHA CINEMA DSP uses
YAMAHA original sound field technology to combine
Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Digital and DTS systems to
provide the visual and audio experience of movie theater
in the listening room of your own home.
ITU-R is the radio communication sector of the ITU
(International Telecommunication Union). ITU-R
recommends a standard speaker placement which is used
in many critical listening rooms, especially for mastering
purposes.
■ SILENT CINEMA
YAMAHA has developed a natural, realistic sound effect
DSP algorithm for headphones.
Parameters for headphones have been set for each sound
field so that accurate representations of all the sound field
programs can be enjoyed on headphones.
■ Virtual CINEMA DSP
YAMAHA has developed a Virtual CINEMA DSP
algorithm that allows you to enjoy DSP sound field
surround effects even without any surround speakers by
using virtual surround speakers.
It is even possible to enjoy Virtual CINEMA DSP using a
minimal two-speaker system that does not include a center
speaker.
■ LFE 0.1 channel
This channel is for the reproduction of low bass signals.
The frequency range for this channel is 20 Hz to 120 Hz.
This channel is counted as 0.1 because it only enforces a
low frequency range compared to the full-range
reproduced by the other 5/6 channels in Dolby Digital or
DTS 5.1/6.1-channel systems.
■ PCM (Linear PCM)
Linear PCM is a signal format under which an analog
audio signal is digitized, recorded and transmitted without
using any compression. This is used as a method of
recording CDs and DVD audio. The PCM system uses a
technique for sampling the size of the analog signal per
very small unit of time. Standing for “pulse code
modulation”, the analog signal is encoded as pulses and
then modulated for recording.
■ Sampling frequency and number of
quantized bits
When digitizing an analog audio signal, the number of
times the signal is sampled per second is called the
sampling frequency, while the degree of fineness when
converting the sound level into a numeric value is called
the number of quantized bits.
The range of rates that can be played back is determined
based on the sampling rate, while the dynamic range
representing the sound level difference is determined by
the number of quantized bits. In principle, the higher the
sampling frequency, the wider the range of frequencies
that can be played back, and the higher the number of
quantized bits, the more finely the sound level can be
reproduced.

GLOSSARY
Video signal information
■ Component video signal
With the component video signal system, the video signal
is separated into the Y signal for the luminance and the PB
and PR signals for the chrominance. Color can be
reproduced more faithfully with this system because each
of these signals is independent. The component signal is
also called the “color difference signal” because the
luminance signal is subtracted from the color signal.
A monitor with component input jacks is required in order
to use the component signal for output.
■ Composite video signal
With the composite video signal system, the video signal
is composed of three basic elements of a video picture;
color, brightness and synchronization data. A composite
video jack on a video component transmits these three
elements combined.
■ S-video signal
With the S-video signal system, the video signal normally
transmitted using a pin cable is separated and transmitted
as the Y signal for the luminance and the C signal for the
chrominance through the S-video cable. Using the
S VIDEO jack eliminates video signal transmission loss
and allows recording and playback of even more beautiful
images.
