About Home Theater
Enjoying Home Theater
Thanks to the AV receiver’s superb capabilities, you can enjoy surround sound with a real sense of movement in your
own home—just like being in a movie theater or concert hall. With DVDs you can enjoy DTS and Dolby Digital. With
analog or digital TV, you can enjoy Dolby Pro Logic IIx, DTS Neo:6, or Onkyo’s original DSP listening modes.
Front left and right speakers
These output the overall sound. Their role in a home theater is to provide a solid
anchor for the sound image. They should be positioned facing the listener at about
ear level, and equidistant from the TV. Angle them inward so as to create a triangle,
with the listener at the apex.
Front high left and right speakers
These speakers are necessary to enjoy Dolby PLIIz Height, etc.
They enhance significantly the spatial experience.
Position them at least 3.3 feet (100 cm) above the front left and right
speakers (and as high as possible). Although it is acceptable to
place left and right at an angle slightly wider than the front left and
right speakers. Ideally they should be positioned directly above the
front left and right speakers.
Surround back left and right
speakers
These speakers are necessary to
enjoy Dolby Digital EX, DTS-ES
Matrix, DTS-ES Discrete, etc. They
enhance the realism of surround
sound and improve sound localization behind the listener. Position
them behind the listener about 2–
3 feet (60–100 cm) above ear level.
Center speaker
This speaker enhances the
front left and right speakers,
making sound movements distinct and providing a full sound
image. In movies it’s used
mainly for dialog.
Position it close to your TV facing forward at about ear level, or
at the same height as the front
left and right speakers.
Subwoofer
The subwoofer handles the bass sounds
of the LFE (Low-Frequency Effects)
channel. The volume and quality of the
bass output from your subwoofer will
depend on its position, the shape of your
listening room, and your listening position. In general, a good bass sound can
be obtained by installing the subwoofer in
a front corner, or at one-third the width of
the wall, as shown.
Tip: To find the best position for your subwoofer, while playing a movie or some
music with good bass, experiment by
placing your subwoofer at various positions within the room, and choose the one
that provides the most satisfying results.
Surround left and right speakers
These speakers are used for precise sound positioning and
to add realistic ambience.
Position them at the sides of the listener, or slightly behind,
about 2–3 feet (60–100 cm) above ear level. Ideally they
should be equidistant from the listener.

Speaker Connection Precautions
Read the following before connecting your speakers:
• North American/Taiwan models: You can connect
speakers with an impedance of between 6 and 16
ohms. If you use speakers with a lower impedance,
and use the amplifier at high volume levels for a long
period of time, the built-in amp protection circuit may
be activated.
• Other models: You can connect speakers with an
impedance of between 4 and 16 ohms. If the impedance of any of the connected speakers is 4 ohms or
more, but less than 6 ohms, be sure to set the minimum
speaker impedance to “4ohms” (see page 43). If you
use speakers with a lower impedance, and use the
amplifier at high volume levels for a long period of
time, the built-in protection circuit may be activated.
• Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet before
making any connections.
• Read the instructions supplied with your speakers.
• Pay close attention to speaker wiring polarity. In other
words, connect positive (+) terminals only to positive
(+) terminals, and negative (–) terminals only to negative (–) terminals. If you get them the wrong way
around, the sound will be out of phase and will sound
unnatural.
• Unnecessarily long, or very thin speaker cables may
affect the sound quality and should be avoided.
• If you use 4 or 5 speakers, connect each of the two
surround speakers to the SURR L/R terminals. Do not
connect them to the SURR BACK L/R or FRONT
HIGH L/R terminals.
• Be careful not to short the
positive and negative wires.
Doing so may damage the AV
receiver.
• Make sure the metal core of
the wire does not have contact
with the AV receiver’s rear
panel. Doing so may damage the AV receiver.
• Don’t connect more than one cable to each speaker
terminal. Doing so may damage the AV receiver.
• Don’t connect one speaker to several terminals.
Connecting the Speaker Cables

Bi-amping the Front Speakers
The FRONT L/R and SURR BACK L/R terminal posts
can be used with front speakers and surround back
speakers respectively, or bi-amped to provide separate
tweeter and woofer feeds for a pair of front speakers that
support bi-amping, providing improved bass and treble
performance.
• When bi-amping is used, the AV receiver is able to
drive up to 5.1 speakers in the main room.
• For bi-amping, the FRONT L/R terminal posts connect to the front speakers’ woofer terminals. And the
SURR BACK L/R terminal posts connect to the front
speakers’ tweeter terminals.
• Once you’ve completed the bi-amping connections
shown below and turned on the AV receiver, you must
set the “Speaker Type” setting to “Bi-Amp” to enable
biamping (see page 43).
Important:
• When making the bi-amping connections, be sure
to remove the jumper bars that link the speakers’
tweeter (high) and woofer (low) terminals.
• Bi-amping can only be used with speakers that support
bi-amping. Refer to your speaker manual.

• Outdoor FM antennas work best outside, but usable
results can sometimes be obtained when installed in an
attic or loft.
• For best results, install the outdoor FM antenna well
away from tall buildings, preferably with a clear line
of sight to your local FM transmitter.
• Outdoor antenna should be located away from possible noise sources, such as neon signs, busy roads, etc.
• For safety reasons, outdoor antenna should be situated
well away from power lines and other high-voltage
equipment.
• Outdoor antenna must be grounded in accordance
with local regulations to prevent electrical shock hazards.
Outdoor AM antennas work best when installed outside
horizontally, but good results can sometimes be obtained
indoors by mounting horizontally above a window. Note
that the AM loop antenna should be left connected.
Outdoor antenna must be grounded in accordance with
local regulations to prevent electrical shock hazards.
■ Using a TV/FM Antenna Splitter
It’s best not to use the same antenna for both FM and TV

Connecting Components with HDMI
About HDMI
Designed to meet the increased demands of digital TV, HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a new digital
interface standard for connecting TVs, projectors, DVD players, set-top boxes, and other video components. Until now,
several separate video and audio cables have been required to connect AV components. With HDMI, a single cable can
carry control signals, digital video, and up to eight channels of digital audio (2-channel PCM, multichannel digital
audio, and multichannel PCM).
The HDMI video stream (i.e., video signal) is compatible with DVI (Digital Visual Interface)*1, so TVs and displays
with a DVI input can be connected by using an HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable. (This may not work with some TVs and
displays, resulting in no picture.)
The AV receiver uses HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection)*2, so only HDCP-compatible components
can display the picture.
The AV receiver’s HDMI interface is based on the following standard:
Repeater System, Deep Color, Lip Sync, DTS-HD Master Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, Dolby TrueHD,
Dolby Digital Plus, DSD, and Multichannel PCM
Supported Audio Formats
• 2-channel linear PCM (32–192 kHz, 16/20/24 bit)
• Multichannel linear PCM (up to 7.1 ch, 32–192 kHz, 16/20/24 bit)
• Bitstream (DSD, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, DTSHD Master Audio)
Your DVD player must also support HDMI output of the above audio formats.
About Copyright Protection
The AV receiver supports HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection)*2, a copy-protection system for digital
video signals. Other devices connected to the AV receiver via HDMI must also support HDCP.
Commercially available HDMI cables (supplied with some components) should be used to connect the AV receiver’s
HDMI OUT to the HDMI input on your TV or projector.
■ Onkyo
for System Control
, which stands for Remote Interactive over HDMI, is the name of the system control function found on Onkyo
components. The AV receiver can be used with CEC (Consumer Electronics Control), which allows system control over
HDMI and is part of the HDMI standard. CEC provides interoperability between various components, however, operation with components other than
-compatible components cannot be guaranteed.
• Set “HDMI Control (RIHD)” to “On” (page 82).
• See “Controlling a TV” (page 93) and “Controlling a DVD Player, or DVD Recorder” (page 94) for operation.
Note:
Do not connect the
-compatible component more than the following number to the HDMI input terminal so
that the linked operations work properly.
• DVD/BD player is up to three.
• DVD/BD recorder is up to three.
• Cable/Satellite Set-top box is up to four.
Do not connect the AV receiver to the other AV receiver /AV amplifier via HDMI.
When the
-compatible component more than the above-mentioned is connected, the linked operations are not
guaranteed.
*1 DVI (Digital Visual Interface): The digital display interface standard set by the DDWG*3 in 1999.
*2 HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection): The video encryption technology developed by Intel for HDMI/DVI. It’s designed to
protect video content and requires a HDCP-compatible device to display the encrypted video.
*3 DDWG (Digital Display Working Group): Lead by Intel, Compaq, Fujitsu, Hewlett Packard, IBM, NEC, and Silicon Image, this open
industry group’s objective is to address the industry’s requirements for a digital connectivity specification for high-performance PCs and
digital displays.

Connecting the AV Receiver—Continued
Making HDMI Connections
Step 1:
Use HDMI cables to connect the AV receiver’s HDMI jacks to your HDMI-compatible Blu-ray player/DVD player,
TV, projector, and so on.
Step 2:
Assign each HDMI IN to an input selector in the HDMI Input Setup (see page 40).
■ Video Signals
Digital video signals received by the HDMI IN jacks are normally output by the HDMI OUT for display on your TV.
Composite video and component video sources can be upconverted for the HDMI output. See “Video Connection Formats” on page 25 for more information.
■ Audio Signals
Digital audio signals received by the HDMI IN jacks are output by the speakers and headphones connected to the AV
receiver. Normally, they are not output by the HDMI OUT, unless the “Audio TV Out” setting is set to “On” (see
page 81).
Hint!
To listen to audio received by the HDMI IN jacks through your TV’s speakers, set the “Audio TV Out”
setting to “On” (see page 81), and set your DVD player’s HDMI audio output setting to PCM.

Notes:
• The HDMI video stream is compatible with DVI (Digital Visual Interface), so TVs and displays with a DVI input can
be connected by using an HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable. (Note that DVI connections only carry video, so you’ll need
to make a separate connection for audio.) However, reliable operation with such an adapter is not guaranteed. In
addition, video signals from a PC are not supported.
• When listening to an HDMI component through the AV receiver, set the HDMI component so that its video can be
seen on the TV screen (on the TV, select the input of the HDMI component connected to the AV receiver). If the TV
power is off or the TV is set to another input source, this may result in no sound from the AV receiver or the sound
may be cut off.
• When the “Audio TV Out” setting is set to “On” (see page 81), or “TV Control” is set to “On” (see page 82) and
you’re listening through your TV’s speakers, if you turn up the AV receiver volume control, the sound will be output
by the AV receiver’s speakers. To stop the AV receiver’s speakers producing sound, change the settings, change your
TV’s settings, or turn down the AV receiver’s volume.
• The HDMI audio signal (sampling rate, bit length, etc.) may be restricted by the connected source component. If the
picture is poor or there’s no sound from a component connected via HDMI, check its setup. Refer to the connected
component’s instruction manual for details.

Which Connections Should I Use?
The AV receiver supports several connection formats for compatibility with a wide range of AV equipment. The format
you choose will depend on the formats supported by your other components. Use the following sections as a guide.
Video Connection Formats
Video equipment can be connected to the AV receiver by using any one of the following video connection formats:
composite video, component video, or HDMI, the latter offering the best picture quality.
Video input signals flow through the AV receiver
as shown, with composite video and component
video sources all being upconverted for the
HDMI output.
The composite video and component video outputs pass through their respective input signals as
they are.
When you connect audio equipment to an HDMI
or COMPONENT input, you must assign that
input to an input selector (see pages 40 and 41).

■ Signal Selection
If signals are present at more than one input, the
inputs will be selected automatically in the following order of priority: HDMI, component
video, composite video.
However, for component video only, regardless
of whether a component video signal is actually
present, if a component video input is assigned to
the input selector, that component video input
will be selected. And if no component video
input is assigned to the input selector, this will be
interpreted as no component video signal being
present.
In the Signal Selection Example shown on the
right, video signals are present at both the HDMI
and composite video inputs, however, the HDMI
signal is automatically selected as the source and
video is output by the HDMI outputs.

Audio Connection Formats
Audio equipment can be connected to the AV
receiver by using any of the following audio connection formats: analog, optical, coaxial, or
HDMI.
When choosing a connection format, bear in
mind that the AV receiver does not convert digital
input signals for analog line outputs and vice
versa. For example, audio signals connected to
an optical or coaxial digital input are not output
by the analog TV/TAPE OUT.

• Turning on the AV receiver may cause a momentary
power surge that might interfere with other electrical
equipment on the same circuit. If this is a problem,
plug the AV receiver into a different branch circuit.
• Do not use a power cord other than the one supplied
with the AV receiver. The supplied power cord is
designed exclusively for use with the AV receiver and
should not be used with any other equipment.
• Never disconnect the power cord from the AV receiver
while the other end is still plugged into a wall outlet.
Doing so may cause an electric shock. Always disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet first, and then

First Time Setup—Continued
Audyssey 2EQ™ Room Correction
and Speaker Setup
With the supplied calibrated microphone,
Audyssey 2EQ automatically determines the number of
speakers connected, their size for purposes of bass
management, optimum crossover frequencies to the
subwoofer (if present), and distances from the primary
listening position.
Audyssey 2EQ then removes the distortion caused by
room acoustics by capturing room acoustical problems
over the listening area in both the frequency and time
domain. The result is clear, well-balanced sound for
everyone. Enabling Audyssey 2EQ allows you to also
use Audyssey Dynamic EQ™, which maintains the
proper octave-to-octave balance at any volume level (see
page 74).
Before using this function, connect and position all of
your speakers.
If Audyssey Dynamic EQ is set to “On”,
Audyssey Dynamic Volume™ becomes available.
About Audyssey Dynamic EQ
Audyssey Dynamic EQ solves the problem of
deteriorating sound quality as volume is decreased by
taking into account human perception and room
acoustics. Dynamic EQ selects the correct frequency
response and surround levels moment-by-moment at
any user-selected volume setting. The result is bass
response, tonal balance, and surround impression that
remain constant despite changes in volume. Dynamic
EQ combines information from incoming source
levels with actual output sound levels in the room, a
prerequisite for delivering a loudness correction
solution. Audyssey Dynamic EQ works in tandem
with Audyssey 2EQ to provide well-balanced sound
for every listener at any volume level.
About Audyssey Dynamic Volume
Audyssey Dynamic Volume solves the problem of
large variations in volume level between television
programs, commercials, and between the soft and loud
passages of movies. Dynamic Volume looks at the
preferred volume setting by the user and then monitors
how the volume of program material is being
perceived by listeners in real time to decide whether an
adjustment is needed. Whenever necessary, Dynamic
Volume makes the necessary rapid or gradual
adjustments to maintain the desired playback volume
level while optimizing the dynamic range.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ is integrated into Dynamic
Volume so that as the playback volume is adjusted
automatically, the perceived bass response, tonal
balance, surround impression, and dialog clarity
remain the same whether watching movies, flipping
between television channels, or changing from stereo
to surround sound content.
46
Measurement Positions
To create a listening environment in your home theater
that all listeners will enjoy, Audyssey 2EQ takes
measurements at up to three positions within the
listening area.
a First measurement point
Also referred to as the Main Listening Position this
refers to the most central position where one would
normally sit within the listening environment. 2EQ
uses the measurements from this position to calculate speaker distance, level, polarity, and the optimum crossover value for the subwoofer.
b Second measurement point
The right side of the listening area.
c Third measurement point
The left side of the listening area.
The distances between points a and b and points a
and c must be at least 1 meter.
From the examples below, choose the listening area that
best matches yours and place the microphone
accordingly when prompted.

Total measurement time varies depending on the
number of speakers.
• Do not disconnect the speaker setup microphone
during the room correction and speaker setup,
unless you want to cancel the setup.
• Do not connect or disconnect any speakers during
the room correction and speaker setup.

Notes:
• Before starting Audyssey 2EQ™
Room Correction and Speaker Setup,
arrange the room and connect the
speakers as you would for enjoying
movies. Changes to the room after
auto setup requires you run the auto
setup again, as room EQ
characteristics may have changed.
• When starting the room correction
and speaker setup, do not stand
between the speakers and
microphone, and avoid obstacles
blocking the path between speakers
and microphone. This will produce
inaccurate results.
• Position the microphone at ear height
of a seated listener with the
microphone tip pointed directly at
the ceiling using a tripod. Do not
hold the microphone in your hand
during measurements as this will
produce innacurate results.

Using a Powered Subwoofer
If you’re using a powered subwoofer and it outputs very
low-frequency sound at a low volume level, it may not be
detected by the Audyssey 2EQ™ Room Correction and
Speaker Setup.
If the “Subwoofer” appears on the “Review SP
Configuration” screen as “No”, increase the subwoofer’s
volume to the half-way point, set it to its highest
crossover frequency, and then try running the
Audyssey 2EQ Room Correction and Speaker Setup
again. Note that if the volume is set too high and the
sound distorts, detection issues may occur, so use an
appropriate volume level. If the subwoofer has a lowpass filter switch, set it to Off or Direct. Refer to your
subwoofer’s instruction manual for details.

RDS indicator
■ What is RDS?
RDS stands for Radio Data System and is a method of
transmitting data in FM radio signals. It was developed
by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and is available in most European countries. Many FM stations use
it these days. In addition to displaying text information,
RDS can also help you find radio stations by type (e.g.,
news, sport, rock, etc.).
The AV receiver supports four types of RDS information:
PS (Program Service)
When tuned to an RDS station that’s broadcasting PS
information, the station’s name will be displayed. Pressing the [DISPLAY] button will display the frequency for
3 seconds.
RT (Radio Text)
When tuned to an RDS station that’s broadcasting text
information, the text will be shown on the display (see
page 57).
PTY (Program Type)
This allows you to search for RDS radio stations by type
(see page 57).
TP (Traffic Program)
This allows you to search for RDS radio stations that
broadcast traffic information (see page 57).
Notes:
• In some cases, the text characters displayed on the AV
receiver may not be identical to those broadcast by the
radio station. Also, unexpected characters may be displayed when unsupported characters are received.
This is not a malfunction.
• If the signal from an RDS station is weak, RDS data
may be displayed intermittently or not at all.

Recording
This section explains how to record the selected input
source to a component with recording capability, and
how to record audio and video from different sources.
Notes:
• The surround sound and DSP listening modes cannot
be recorded.
• Copy-protected DVDs cannot be recorded.
• Sources connected to a digital input cannot be
recorded. Only analog inputs can be recorded.
• DTS signals will be recorded as noise, so don’t
attempt analog recording of DTS CDs or LDs.
• While the listening mode is set to Pure Audio, no
image is provided because the power is turned off for
the video circuit. If you want to make recordings,
select other listening mode.
Recording Separate AV Sources
Here you can record audio and video from completely
separate sources, allowing you to overdub audio onto
your video recordings. This function takes advantage of
the fact that when an audio-only input source (i.e., TV/
TAPE, CD) is selected, the video input source remains
unchanged.
In the following example, audio from the CD player connected to the CD IN, and video from the camcorder connected to the AUX INPUT VIDEO jack are recorded by
the VCR connected to the VCR/DVR OUT jacks.
Camcorder
AV Recording
Audio sources can be recorded to a recorder (e.g., cassette deck, CDR, MD) connected to the TV/TAPE OUT
jack. Video sources can be recorded to a video recorder
(e.g., VCR, DVD recorder) connected to the VCR/DVR
OUT jack. See pages 25 to 37 for hookup information.

select the source that you want
to record.
You can watch the source while recording. The AV receiver’s MASTER VOLUME control has no effect on

About the Listening Modes
The AV receiver’s listening modes can transform your
listening room into a movie theater or concert hall, with
high fidelity and stunning surround sound.
Pure Audio
In this mode, the display and video circuitry are turned
off, minimizing possible noise sources for the ultimate in
high-fidelity reproduction. (As the video circuitry is
turned off, only video signals input through HDMI IN
can be output.)
Direct
In this mode, audio from the input source is output
directly with minimal processing, providing high-fidelity reproduction. All of the source’s audio channels are
output as they are.
Stereo
Sound is output by the front left and right speakers and
subwoofer.
Mono
Use this mode when watching an old movie with a mono
soundtrack, or use it with the foreign language
soundtracks recorded in the left and right channels of
some movies. It can also be used with DVDs or other
sources containing multiplexed audio, such as karaoke
DVDs.
Multichannel
This mode is for use with PCM multichannel sources.
Dolby Pro Logic IIx
Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic IIx expands any 2-channel source for
7.1-channel playback. It provides a very natural and
seamless surround-sound experience that fully envelops
the listener. As well as music and movies, video games
can also benefit from the dramatic spatial effects and
vivid imaging. If you’re not using any surround back
speakers, Dolby Pro Logic II will be used instead of
Dolby Pro Logic IIx.
• Dolby PLIIx Movie
Use this mode with any stereo or Dolby Surround
(Pro Logic) movie (e.g., TV, DVD, VHS).
• Dolby PLIIx Music
Use this mode with any stereo or Dolby Surround
(Pro Logic) music source (e.g., CD, radio, cassette,
TV, VHS, DVD).
• Dolby PLIIx Game
Use this mode with video games, especially those
that bear the Dolby Pro Logic II logo.
Dolby Pro Logic IIz Height
Dolby Pro Logic IIz Height is designed to more effectively use existing program material when height channel speaker outputs are present. Dolby Pro Logic IIz
Height can be used to upmix a variety of sources from
movies and music, but are particularly well-suited to
upmix game content.
Dolby Digital
Use this mode with DVDs that bear the Dolby Digital
logo, and Dolby Digital TV broadcasts. This is the most
common digital surround-sound format, and it’ll put you
right in the middle of the action, just like being in a
movie theater or concert hall.
5.1-channel source + Dolby EX
These modes expand 5.1-channel sources for 6.1/7.1channel playback. They’re especially suited to Dolby EX
soundtracks that include a matrix-encoded surround
back channel. The additional channel adds an extra
dimension and provides an enveloping surround sound
experience, perfect for rotating and fly-by sound effects.
Dolby Digital Plus
Developed for use with HDTV, including the new video
disc formats Blu-ray and HD DVD, this is the latest multichannel audio format from Dolby. It supports up to 7.1
channels with 48 kHz sampling rate.
Dolby TrueHD
Designed to take full advantage of the additional storage
space offered by the new Blu-ray and HD DVD disc formats, this new Dolby format offers up to 7.1 discrete
channels of digital audio with 48/96 kHz, up to 5.1-channels with 192 kHz sampling rate.
5.1-channel source + Dolby PLIIx Music
These modes use the Dolby Pro Logic IIx Music mode
to expand 5.1-channel sources for 6.1/7.1-channel playback.
5.1-channel source + Dolby PLIIx Movie
These modes use the Dolby Pro Logic IIx Movie mode
to expand 5.1-channel sources for 7.1-channel playback.
DTS
The DTS digital surround-sound format supports up to
5.1 discrete channels and uses less compression for highfidelity reproduction. Use it with DVDs and CDs that
bear the DTS logo.
DTS 96/24
This mode is for use with DTS 96/24 sources. This is
high-resolution DTS with a 96 kHz sampling rate and
24-bit resolution, providing superior fidelity. Use it with
DVDs that bear the DTS 96/24 logo.
DTS-ES Discrete
This mode is for use with DTS-ES Discrete soundtracks,
which use a discrete surround back channel for true 6.1/
7.1-channel playback. The seven totally separate audio
channels provide better spatial imaging and 360-degree
sound localization, perfect for sounds that pan across the
surround channels. Use it with DVDs that bear the DTSES logo, especially those with a DTS-ES Discrete
soundtrack.
67
Using the Listening Modes—Continued
DTS-ES Matrix
This mode is for use with DTS-ES Matrix soundtracks,
which use a matrix-encoded back-channel for 6.1/7.1channel playback. Use it with DVDs that bear the DTSES logo, especially those with a DTS-ES Matrix
soundtrack.
DTS Neo:6
This mode expands any 2-channel source for up to 7.1channel playback. It uses seven full-bandwidth channels
of matrix decoding for matrix-encoded material, providing a very natural and seamless surround sound experience that fully envelops the listener.
• Neo:6 Cinema
Use this mode with any stereo movie (e.g., TV,
DVD, VHS).
• Neo:6 Music
Use this mode with any stereo music source (e.g.,
CD, radio, cassette, TV, VHS, DVD).
5.1-channel source + Neo:6
This mode uses Neo:6 to expand 5.1-channel sources for
6.1/7.1-channel playback.
DTS-HD High Resolution Audio
Developed for use with HDTV, including the new video
disc formats Blu-ray and HD DVD, this is the latest multichannel audio format from DTS. It supports up to 7.1
channels with 96 kHz sampling rate.
DTS-HD Master Audio
Designed to take full advantage of the additional storage
space offered by the new Blu-ray and HD DVD disc formats, this new DTS format offers up to 7.1 discrete channels of digital audio with 48/96 kHz, up to 5.1-channels
with 192 kHz sampling rate.
DTS Express
This format supports up to 5.1 channels and a lower sampling rate of 48 kHz. Applications include interactive
audio and commentary encoding for HD DVD Sub
Audio and Blu-ray Secondary Audio. Also broadcast
and media servers.
DSD
DSD stands for Direct Stream Digital and is the format
used to store digital audio on Super Audio CDs (SACD).
This mode can be used with SACDs that feature multichannel audio.
DTS Surround Sensation
With this mode you can enjoy a virtual 5.1 surround
sound even with only two speakers.
• Neo:6 Cinema + DTS Surround Sensation
• Neo:6 Music + DTS Surround Sensation
These modes use Neo:6 to expand stereo sources for virtual surround playback.
68
Onkyo Original DSP Modes
Orchestra
Suitable for classical or operatic music, this mode
emphasizes the surround channels in order to widen the
stereo image, and simulates the natural reverberation of
a large hall.
Unplugged
Suitable for acoustic instruments, vocals, and jazz, this
mode emphasizes the front stereo image, giving the
impression of being right in front of the stage.
Studio-Mix
Suitable for rock or pop music, listening to music in this
mode creates a lively sound field with a powerful acoustic image, like being at a club or rock concert.
TV Logic
This mode adds realistic acoustics to TV shows produced in a TV studio, surround effects to the entire
sound, and clarity to voices.
Game-RPG
Use this mode when playing role playing game discs.
Game-Action
Use this mode when playing action game discs.
Game-Rock
Use this mode when playing rock game discs.
Game-Sports
Use this mode when playing sports game discs.
All Ch Stereo
Ideal for background music, this mode fills the entire listening area with stereo sound from the front, surround,
and surround back speakers.
Full Mono
In this mode, all speakers output the same sound in
mono, so the sound you hear is the same regardless of
where you are within the listening room.
T-D (Theater-Dimensional)
With this mode you can enjoy a virtual surround sound
even with only two or three speakers. This works by controlling how sounds reach the listener’s left and right
ears. Good results may not be possible if there’s too
much reverb, so we recommend that you use this mode
in an environment with little or no natural reverb.

73
Advanced Setup—Continued
DTS Setting
Neo:6 Music
Center Image
0 to 5 (default: 2)
The DTS Neo:6 Music listening mode creates 6-channel surround sound from 2-channel stereo sources. With
this setting, you can specify by how much the front left and right channel output is attenuated in order to create
the center channel.
When set to 0, the front left and right channel output is attenuated by half (–6 dB), giving the impression that
the sound is located centrally. This setting works well when the listening position is considerably off center.
When set to 5, the front left and right channels are not attenuated, maintaining the original stereo balance.
Audyssey Settings
After room correction and speaker setup is completed, Audyssey Dynamic EQ™ becomes “On” by default.
Dynamic EQ
Off: Audyssey Dynamic EQ off.
On: Audyssey Dynamic EQ on (default).
With Audyssey Dynamic EQ, you can enjoy great sound even when listening at low volume levels.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ solves the problem of deteriorating sound quality as volume is decreased by taking into
account human perception and room acoustics. It does so by selecting the correct frequency response and
surround volume levels moment-by-moment so that the content sounds the way it was created at any volume
level--not just at reference level.
Note:
In order to record with appropriate sound, Audyssey 2EQ™ is automatically deactivated during a recording.
After the recording is finished, Audyssey 2EQ™ and Audyssey Dynamic EQ™ will resume as previously set.

Notes:
•
, which stands for Remote Interactive over
HDMI, is the name of the system control function
found on Onkyo components. The AV receiver can be
used with CEC (Consumer Electronics Control),
which allows system control over HDMI and is part of
the HDMI standard. CEC provides interoperability
between various components, however, operation with
components other than
-compatible components cannot be guaranteed.
When set to “On” and close the menu, the name of
connected
-compatible components and
“RIHD ON” are displayed on the AV receiver.
“Search…” → “(name)” → “RIHD ON”
When the AV receiver cannot receive the name of the
component, it is displayed as “Player*” or
“Recorder*”, etc (“*” means the number of two or
more component).
When set to “Off” and close the menu, “RIHD OFF”
are displayed on the AV receiver.
“Disconnect” → “RIHD OFF”
• When an
-compatible component is connected to the AV receiver via the HDMI cable, the
name of the connected component is displayed on the
AV receiver display. For example, while you are
watching TV broadcasting, if you operate a DVD
player (being powered on) by the remote control of the
82
AV receiver, the name of the DVD player is displayed
on the AV receiver.
• Set to “Off” when a connected piece of equipment is
not compatible or it is unclear whether the equipment
is compatible or not.
• If movement is unnatural when set to “On”, change the
setting to “Off”.
• Refer to the connected component’s instruction manual for details.

• HDMI power control only works with
-compatible components that support it and may not work
properly with some components due to their settings
or compatibility.
• When set to “On”, power consumption will increase.
• When set to “On”, regardless of whether the AV
receiver is On or on Standby, both audio and video
received by an HDMI input will be output by the
HDMI OUT for playback on the TV or other component that’s connected to the HDMI OUT.
• Refer to the connected component’s instruction manual for details.
TV Control
Set to “On” when you want to control the AV receiver
from an
-compatible TV that is connected to
HDMI.
Off: TV Control disabled.
On: TV Control enabled.
Notes:
• Do not assign the component connected with the
HDMI input to the TV/TAPE selector when you set
“TV Control” setting to “On”. Otherwise, appropriate
CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) operation is not
guaranteed.
• Set to “Off” when the TV is not compatible or when it
is unclear whether the TV is compatible or not.
• The “TV Control” setting can be set only when the
above “HDMI Control (RIHD)” and “Power Control”
settings are both set to “On”.
• Refer to the connected component’s instruction manual for details.
Note:

Only the front speakers produce sound
• When the DTS Surround Sensation, Stereo or Mono
listening mode is selected, only the front speakers and
subwoofer produce sound.
• Check the Speaker Configuration (page 70).
Only the center speaker produces sound
• If you use the Dolby Pro Logic IIx Movie, Dolby Pro
Logic IIx Music, or Dolby Pro Logic IIx Game listening mode with a mono source, such as an AM radio
station or mono TV program, the sound is concentrated in the center speaker.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 70).
The surround speakers produce no sound
• When the DTS Surround Sensation, T-D (TheaterDimensional), Stereo or Mono listening mode is
selected, the surround speakers produce no sound.
• Depending on the source and current listening mode,
not much sound may be produced by the surround

• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 70).
The center speaker produces no sound
• When the Stereo or Mono listening mode is selected,
the center speaker produces no sound.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 70).
Troubleshooting—Continued
The surround back speakers produce no sound
• Depending on the current listening mode, no sound
may be produced by the surround back speakers.
Select another listening mode (page 67).
• Not much sound may be produced by the surround
back speakers with some sources.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 70).
• While Powered Zone 2 is being used, playback in the
main room is reduced to 5.1-channels and the surround back speakers produce no sound (page 85).
The subwoofer produces no sound
• When you play source material that contains no information in the LFE channel, the subwoofer produces
no sound.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 70).
There’s no sound with a certain signal format
• Check the digital audio output setting on the connected device. On some game consoles, such as those
that support DVD, the default setting is off.
• With some DVD-Video discs, you need to select an
audio output format from a menu.
• Depending on the input signal, some listening modes
cannot be selected (pages 63-66).
Can’t select the Pure Audio listening mode
• The Pure Audio listening mode cannot be selected
while Zone 2 is on. (Pure Audio listening mode is not
available for North American/Taiwan models.)
Can’t get 6.1/7.1 playback
• If no surround back speakers are connected, or the
Zone 2 speakers are being used, 6.1/7.1 playback is
not possible.
• You can not always select all of the listening modes,
depending on the number of the speakers connected
(pages 63-66).
The volume cannot be set to 79
• Check to see if a maximum volume has been set
(page 80).
• If the volume level of each individual speaker has been
adjusted to high positive values (page 72), then the
maximum master volume possible may be reduced.
Note that the individual speaker volume levels are set
automatically after the Audyssey 2EQ™ Room Correction and Speaker Setup function has been completed (page 47).
Noise can be heard
• Using cable ties to bundle audio cables with power
cords, speaker cables, and so on may degrade the
audio performance, so don’t do it.
• An audio cable may be picking up interference. Try
repositioning your cables.
The Late Night function doesn’t work
• Make sure the source material is Dolby Digital, Dolby
Digital Plus, and Dolby TrueHD (page 75).
About DTS signals
• When DTS program material ends and the DTS bitstream stops, the AV receiver remains in DTS listening mode and the DTS indicator remains on. This is to
prevent noise when you use the pause, fast forward, or
fast reverse function on your player. If you switch your
player from DTS to PCM, because the AV receiver
does not switch formats immediately, you may not
hear any sound, in which case you should stop your
player for about three seconds, and then resume playback.
• With some CD and LD players, you won’t be able to
playback DTS material properly even though your
player is connected to a digital input on the AV
receiver. This is usually because the DTS bitstream
has been processed (e.g., output level, sampling rate,
or frequency response changed) and the AV receiver
doesn’t recognize it as a genuine DTS signal. In such
cases, you may hear noise.
• When playing DTS program material, using the pause,
fast forward, or fast reverse function on your player
may produce a short audible noise. This is not a malfunction.
The beginning of audio received by an HDMI IN
can’t be heard
• Since it takes longer to identify the format of an
HDMI signal than it does for other digital audio signals, audio output may not start immediately.
Video
There’s no picture
• Make sure that all video connecting plugs are pushed
in all the way (page 22).
• Make sure that each video component is properly connected. (pages 24-36)
• If your TV is connected to the HDMI OUT, select
“- - - - -” in the “HDMI Input Setup” on page 40 to
watch composite video, and component video sources.
• If the video source is connected to a component video
input, you must assign that input to an input selector
(page 41), and your TV must be connected to either
the HDMI OUT or COMPONENT VIDEO MONITOR OUT (pages 27 and 24).
• If the video source is connected to a composite video
input, your TV must be connected to the HDMI OUT
or the corresponding composite video output
(pages 27 and 24).
• If the video source is connected to an HDMI input,
you must assign that input to an input selector
(page 40), and your TV must be connected to the
HDMI OUT (page 24).
• While the Pure Audio listening mode is selected, the
video circuitry is turned off and only video signals
input through HDMI IN can be output.
• On your TV, make sure that the video input to which
the AV receiver is connected is selected.
101
Troubleshooting—Continued

pressing your iPod’s Play button. Remote operation
should then be possible.
• Try resetting your iPod.
• Depending on your iPod, some buttons may not work
as expected.
The AV receiver unexpectedly selects your iPod
as the input source
• Always pause iPod playback before selecting a different
input source. If playback is not paused, the Direct
Change function may select your iPod as the input
source by mistake during the transition between tracks.
Recording
Can’t record
• On your recorder, make sure the correct input is
selected.
• When the Pure Audio listening mode is selected,
recording is not possible because no video signals are
output. Select another listening mode.
Zone 2
There’s no sound
• Only components connected to analog inputs can be
played in Zone 2.
Others
The sound changes when I connect my
headphones
• When a pair of headphones is connected, the listening

you can attenuate the gain.
Video ATT:OFF: (default).
Video ATT:ON: Gain is reduced by 2 dB.
The AV receiver contains a microcomputer for signal processing and control functions. In very rare situations, severe
interference, noise from an external source, or static electricity may cause it to lockup. In the unlikely event that this
happens, unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, wait at
least five seconds, and then plug it back in again.
Onkyo is not responsible for damages (such as CD rental
fees) due to unsuccessful recordings caused by the unit’s
malfunction. Before you record important data, make sure
that the material will be recorded correctly.
Before disconnecting the power cord from the wall outlet, set the AV receiver to Standby.
Important Note Regarding Video Playback
