[AP-U70 only]

If you wish to record analog sound signals inputted

to this unit, connect the analog inputs of a tape deck

or MD recorder to this units REC OUT OUTPUT.

Digital connections If you wish to record digital sound signals inputted to this

unit, connect the optical digital input of an MD recorder or a

DAT deck to this units DIGITAL OPT OUT.

Notes When playing an ordinary CD on this unit following

playback of a CD or an LD encoded with DTS, some operations, such as resetting the input selector keys, may be required.

Even if connected to this unit with a digital connection, some

CD, LD, and DVD players may make this unit fail to decode DTS or produce noise. This is because certain digital output data processing by such a player results in DTS-encoded data errors that cause playback failure although the same data processing may cause only a slight change in volume or in frequency response in normal digital sound.

When an error occurs in the players digital output data

during playback of an LD or CD encoded with DTS, playback may be disrupted. If this occurs, stop playback and repower the player.

When digital sound signals from the computer are played,

errors in WAVE signals, etc. may occur resulting in noise or a playback failure.

: [AP-U70 only]

Notes Connecting a turntable

A turntable cannot be connected to this unit directly. Use a commercially available phono equalizer amplifier to connect a turntable to this unit, or connect a turntable incorporated with a phono equalizer amplifier.

[AP-U70 only] The REC OUT OUTPUT and DIGITAL OPT OUT can be used at the same time since they output signals

independently.

Connecting speakers

[AP-U70 only] Connect this unit to your speakers with speaker cables with a proper gauge (keep them as short as possible).

Notes Use speakers which do not have a built-in amplifier.

Use speakers whose impedance is 6 or more.

Connect the left speaker to the left speaker connector on this

unit and the right speaker to the right speaker connector.

Make sure that the + and polarity markings of the speaker

cables are observed and set correctly. If these cables are reversed, the sound will be unnatural and lack bass.

Speaker Cables Strip 10 mm of insulation off the end of each speaker cable, and then twist the bare wires to prevent lose strands, which can cause short circuits.

How to connect: 1 Press and hold the speaker connector levers. 2 Insert the bare ends of the speaker cables into the

terminal holes. 3 Then release the levers. * Try pulling gently on each cable to make sure that it is

secure.

[DP-U50 only] To reproduce sound signals inputted to this unit over speakers, connect this unit to speakers with a built-in amplifier, a mini-component system, etc., or connect this unit to speakers by using an external power amplifier. Connect the analog inputs of speakers with a built-in amplifier, etc. to this units PRE OUT using a commercially available analog pin-plug cord or a pin (stereo)-to-mini

(stereo) plug cord.

Note The level of signals outputted from the PRE OUT varies by the

use of the volume control on the front panel or the VOLUME

keys on the remote control. So, it is recommended to adjust the

speaker output level on this unit or the remote control, and fix

the volume of speakers with a built-in amplifier, etc. at a

certain level.

Adding a subwoofer Bass performance can be extended by connecting a

subwoofer to this units SUBWOOFER OUTPUT using a

commercially available audio pin-plug cord.

The use of a subwoofer is also suitable for reproducing the

effects of sound field programs.

Note The SUBWOOFER OUTPUT is a line-level output. Use a

subwoofer which has its own built-in power amplifier, such as

the Yamaha YST-SW45.

Note Use magnetically shielded speakers and subwoofer. Using non-

magnetically shielded speakers near the computer monitor may

impair picture color or damage the monitor.

Plugging in this unit

After completing all connections, plug the AC power

cord into a household AC outlet.

Note Unplug the AC power cord from the AC outlet if this unit is not

to be used for a long period of time.

(U.S.A. model)

Recommended Speaker Placement For best performance, place the left and right speakers on

either side of your computer monitor, as shown below, and

position them so that their fronts are flush with the monitor

screen. To get the best from the sound field programs and

surround effects, the left and right speakers and the

listener should be positioned so as to form a triangle with a

3:4 ratio, so if, for example, the speakers are 60 cm (23.5)

apart, the listener should be 80 cm (31.5) away from each

speaker.

If your system includes a subwoofer (YST-SW45, etc.),

place it on the floor.

Direct sound

Surround sound typically requires several speakers situated in front of and behind the listening position, which requires a substantial amount of space that may not always be available. This unit uses Yamahas unique Virtual 3D (three-dimensional) technology to simulate a typical surround sound system using only two speakers. Virtual

3D, which is used by this units sound field programs, simulates the surround effect provided by rear and center speakers, creating virtual surround speakers, as shown, so even with only two front speakers, you can still enjoy surround sound.

Digital Sound Field Processing (DSP)

When you listen to a performance in a concert hall, jazz club, or other live music venue, you not only hear the direct sound coming from the musical instruments and singers, but also the early reflections and natural reverberation. Early reflections are the initial sound waves that bounce off the floor, ceiling, and walls. Natural reverberation is made up of sound waves that gradually attenuate as they bounce repeatedly off multiple surfaces.

Since the way you hear early reflections and reverberation depends on the shape and size of the building as well as the material and construction of the walls and ceiling, each venue has its own unique sound, called its sound field. At Yamaha, we have measured all the elements that make up a typical sound fielddirection and level of the reflections, band-width characteristics, and delay timesat famous concert halls and opera houses around the world. The information gained in this process has been converted into programs that can be reproduced using Yamahas DSP technology. Using its on-board DSP, this unit can process any audio source and recreate the atmosphere of the original venue.
