OUTLINE OF THIS SYSTEM

DIGITAL SOUND FIELD PROCESSOR (DSP) The Digital Sound Field Processor (DSP) built into this system takes advantage of Yamahas undisputed leadership in the field of digital audio processing to bring you a whole new world of listening experiences. Follow the instructions in this manual carefully when setting up your system, and this unit will sonically transform your room into a wide range of listening environments movie theater, concert hall, and so on. In addition, you get incredible realism from sources encoded with Dolby Surround using the built-in Dolby Pro Logic Surround Decoder. Please read this operation manual carefully and store it in a safe place for later reference.

Digital Sound Field Processing

What is it that makes live music so good? Todays advanced sound reproduction technology lets you get extremely close to the sound of a live performance, but chances are youll still notice something missing: the acoustic environment of the live concert hall. Extensive research into the exact nature of the sonic reflections that create the ambience of a large hall has made it possible for Yamaha engineers to bring you this same sound in your own listening room, so youll feel all the sound of a live concert.

Furthermore, our technicians, armed with sophisticated measuring equipment, have even made it possible to capture the acoustics of a variety of venues such as an actual concert hall, theater, etc. to allow you to accurately recreate one of several actual live performance environments, all in your own home.

Dolby Pro Logic Surround

This unit employs a Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoder similar to professional Dolby Stereo decoders used in many movie theaters. By using the Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoder, you can experience the dramatic realism and impact of Dolby Surround movie theater sound in your own home. Dolby Pro Logic employs a four channel five speaker system. The Pro Logic Surround system divides the input signal into four levels: the left and right main channels, the center channel (used for dialog), and the rear surround sound channels (used for sound effects, background noise, and other ambient noises). The center channel allows listeners seated in even less-than-ideal positions to hear the dialog originating from the action on the screen while experiencing good stereo imaging. Dolby Surround is encoded on the sound track of pre- recorded video tapes, laser discs, and some TV/cable broadcasts. When you play a source encoded with Dolby

Surround on this unit, the Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoder decodes the signal and distributes the surround-sound effects. This Dolby Pro Logic Surround Decoder employs a digital signal processing system. This system improves the stability of sound at each channel and minimizes crosstalk between channels, so that positioning of sounds around the room is more accurate compared with conventional analog signal processing systems. In addition, this unit features a built-in automatic input balance control. This always assures you the best performance without manual adjustment.

Dolby Pro Logic Surround + DSP

Dolby Surround sound system shows its full ability in a large movie theater, because movie sounds are originally designed to be reproduced in a large movie theater using many speakers. It is difficult to create a sound environment similar to that of a movie theater in your listening room, because the room size, materials of inside walls, the number of speakers, etc. of your listening room is much different from those of a movie theater. Yamaha DSP technology made it possible to present you with nearly the same sound experience as that of a large movie theater in your listening room by compensating for lack of presence and dynamics in your

listening room with its original digital sound fields combined with Dolby Surround sound field. The combination of Dolby Pro Logic Surround and DSP is used on the sound field program PRO LOGIC ENHANCED.

The YAMAHA CINEMA DSP logo indicates these programs are created by the combination of Dolby Pro Logic and YAMAHA DSP technology.

Speaker configuration

This system employs a 6 speaker configuration: 2 front speakers, 2 rear speakers, a center speaker and a subwoofer. The front speakers are used for the main source sound plus the effect sounds. The rear speakers are used for the effect and surround sounds, and the center speaker is for the center sounds (dialog etc.). The subwoofer is for reinforcing low frequencies of the main source sound and the center sounds.

Automatic preset tuning You can also make use of an automatic preset tuning function. By this function, this tuner performs automatic tuning and stores stations with strong signals sequentially. Up to 40 stations are stored automatically in the same way as in the manual preset tuning method on page 35.

1 Select the built-in tuner as the input source by pressing the TUNER input selector button.

2 Press and hold the MEMORY button for about 2 seconds. * MEMORY and AUTO will flash.

This tuner performs automatic tuning and searches FM and AM (MW and LW for U.K. and Europe models only) stations in that order. Received stations are programmed to the preset station number A1, A2, A3... A8, B1... sequentially.

When the automatic preset tuning is completed The display shows the frequencies of the first preset station (stored to A1). Check the contents and the number of preset stations by following the procedure of the section To recall a preset station on the previous page.

To recall a preset station Simply follow the procedure of the section To recall a preset station on the previous page.

Notes The automatic preset tuning search will be performed

through all frequencies until 40 stations are stored. If the number of received stations is less than 40, the search will stop after searching all frequencies. * Since FM stations are searched for first, there may

be a case that 40 preset stations are occupied by FM stations only.

With this function, only stations with sufficient signal strength are stored automatically. If the station you want to program is weak in signal strength, tune in to it with the Manual tuning method (in monaural) and program it by following the procedure of the section To store stations on page 35.

You can replace a preset station by another FM or AM (MW or LW) station manually by simply following the procedure of the section To store stations on page 35.

and Europe models only> This tuner is originally set so that only RDS stations are searched instead of all FM stations by this operation. (FM stations that employ no RDS network service cannot be programmed.) However, you can change the setting so that the unit can program not only RDS stations but also other FM stations. (Refer to page 43 for details.)

USING DIGITAL SOUND FIELD PROCESSOR (DSP)

USING DIGITAL SOUND FIELD PROCESSOR (DSP) This system incorporates a sophisticated, multi- program digital sound field processor. The processor allows you to electronically expand and change the shape of the audio sound field from both audio and video sources, creating a theater-like experience in your listening room. You can create an excellent audio sound field by selecting a suitable sound field program (this will, of course, depend on what you will be listening to), and adding desired adjustments.

In addition, this unit incorporates a Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoder for multi-channel sound reproduction of sources encoded with Dolby Surround. The operation of the Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoder can be controlled by selecting the DSP program, PRO LOGIC or PRO LOGIC ENHANCED.

Brief Overview of Digital Sound Field Programs

The following list gives you a brief description of the sound fields produced by each of the DSP programs. Keep in mind that most of these are precise digital recreations of actual acoustic environments. The data for these sound fields was recorded at actual locations using sophisticated sound field measurement equipment.

Note The channel level balance between the left and right rear effect speakers may vary depending on the sound field you are listening to. This is due to the fact that most of these sound field recreations are actual acoustic environments.

FEATURE

This program is used for playback of sources encoded with Dolby Surround. The application of a sophisticated digital signal processing system reduces crosstalk and directs or steers the sound source more smoothly and precisely, as compared to conventional types.

This program is also used for playback of sources encoded with Dolby Surround. Enhancing the Normal Dolby Pro Logic, the DSP technology simulates the multi-surround speaker systems of a 35 mm movie theater. This effect creates a wide surround sound field, and expands the sound stage with an improved presence image. This program is used for musical based movies, as well as drama and comedy based movies.

This program gives you long delays between direct sounds and effect sounds, and extraordinarily spacious feel of a large stadium.

This program recreates the acoustic environment of a lively disco in the heart of a very lively city. The sound is dense and highly concentrated. It is also characterized by a high-energy, immediate sound.

In this program, the center will appear to be deep behind the main speakers, creating an expansive large hall ambience. Orchestra and opera music are suited for this sound field.

This program is ideally suited for rock music. You will experience a very dynamic or lively sound field.

This program is designed specifically to enhance mono source programs. Compared to a strictly mono setting, the sound image created in this mode is wider and slightly forward of the speaker pair, lending an immediacy to the overall sound. It is particularly effective when used with old mono movies, news broadcasts and dialog.

This program is effective for music videos and gives excellent depth and clarity for vocals. For opera, the orchestra and stage are ideally recreated, letting you feel as if you were in an actual concert hall.

1 Press the CENTER/REAR/DELAY selector button once or more so that DEL appears on the display.

2 By continuously pressing the LEVEL control + or button, the value changes continuously. The value stops changing momentarily at the preset point.

Notes Adding too much delay will cause an unnatural effect

with some sources. When the LEVEL control button is pressed, sound is

momentarily interrupted.

Note The values of the delay time, center level and rear level you set the last time will remain memorized even when this system is in the standby mode. However, if the power cord is kept disconnected for more than one week, these values will be automatically changed back to the original factory settings.

HOW TO USE THE BUILT-IN TIMER

TIMER PLAY By using the built-in timer, you can set the time when this system turns on and a source begins playing automatically, and the time when this system turns into the standby mode automatically.

1 Prepare the source to be played.

For tuner: Tune in to the station you will listen to.

For CD player: Load a disc on the disc tray.

2 Press the DISPLAY button. Whenever the DISPLAY button is pressed, the display mode changes as follows. On each mode, make a setting for the timer play, following the setting procedure described below.

Current time (TIMER on/off mode)

Source selecting mode (TUNER, CD)

ON TIME/Time setting mode

OFF TIME/Time setting mode

Normal display mode

Note The display mode will be changed to the next mode after about 8 seconds elapse in turn automatically. If the mode is changed before the setting is completed, call the mode again by pressing the DISPLAY button once or more.

Setting procedure:

Current time Check to be sure that the current time is correct, and press the TIMER button so that TIMER lights up on the display.

Source selecting mode Select the source (TUNER or CD) to be played by pressing the corresponding input selector button. * If TUNER is selected, soon it is changed to

the frequency display mode. In this mode, you can select the station to listen to by the timer play by using the PRESET/BAND button and

ON TIME/time setting mode [ON TIME appears on the display, and soon it is changed to a time setting mode.] Set to the time when you want to begin the timer play by using the HOUR button and the MIN button.

OFF TIME/time setting mode [OFF TIME appears on the display, and soon it is changed to a time setting mode.] If necessary, set to the time when you want to finish the timer play (to turn this system into the standby mode) by using the HOUR button and the MIN button. Even if you do not set the time, it has already been set so that the timer play finishes after 1 hour.

Note The TIMER button functions also in the time (ON TIME or OFF TIME) setting mode. (However, it also turns this system into the standby mode.)

3 If you will not use this unit until the timer play begins, turn this system into the standby mode by pressing the POWER switch or the TIMER button.

Note If a timer play setting is made and this system is not turned into the standby mode, the source set for the timer play will begin playing when the time comes in place of the source played at that time.

To cancel the timer play setting After the timer play is finished, press the DISPLAY button to call the current time. While the current time is displayed, press the TIMER button so that TIMER goes out from the display. If it is not canceled, the system will be turned on at the same time every day, so it can be used as an alarm. However, if you are planning to go out at that time, cancel the timer play setting. * Unless the AC supply lead is unplugged or there is a

power failure for more than 5 minutes, the time set on the timer will be retained until it is reset.

How to make time setting in the ON TIME or OFF TIME mode

For the hour: Press the HOUR button to change the hour to a higher value. Press and hold to change continuously.

For the minute: Use the MIN button and operate it in the same way as you did to change the hour.
