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 and theater 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.

Manufactured under license from Dolby Laboratories Licensing Corporation. Dolby, Pro Logic, and the double-D symbol are trademarks of Dolby Laboratories Licensing Corporation.

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, and other factors of your listening room are 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 (such as dialog.). The subwoofer is for reinforcing low frequencies of the main source sound and the center sound.

Placing speakers Front speakers: On both sides of the TV and at

almost the same height as the TV. Rear speakers: Behind your listening position,

facing slightly inward. Nearly six feet (approx. 1.8 m) up from the floor.

Center speaker: Precisely between the front speakers.

Subwoofer: The position of the subwoofer is not so critical because low bass tones are not highly directional.

Note Although FRONT, REAR, and CENTER speakers are magnetically shielded, there may be some influence on the TV picture depending on the type of TV or the placement of the speakers. In such a case, place the speakers far enough from the TV so that there is no influence on the TV picture.

Before you make connections, place all units in this system in their proper positions. Above all, the positioning of the speakers is important because it controls the whole sound quality of this system. Position the speakers on the basis of your listening position by following the instructions in this section.

SETTING UP THE SPEAKERS

When installing the center speaker on the TV, be sure to secure the center speaker to the TV using the velcro strips provided so that it does not fall.

Notes Do not place the center speaker on top of a TV

whose area is smaller than the bottom area of the center speaker, as the center speaker may drop and cause personal injury.

Although this center speaker is a magnetically shielded type, there may be some influence on the TV picture depending on the type of TV or the placement of the center speaker. In such a case, place the center speaker apart from the TV so that there is no influence on the TV picture.

Be sure to remove all dust, debris, oil, and other substances adhering to the section where the velcro strip is affixed. If this section is dirty, the velcro strip will not affix properly, and the center speaker may move or fall.

When peeling off the backing paper of the velcro strips, be careful not to touch the adhesive surface. Doing so harms the adhesion strength.

If there is a gap between the center speaker and TV, turn and extend the adjuster on the bottom rear section of the center speaker so that the center speaker is stable.

CONNECTIONS

Connect the provided speakers to the SPEAKERS terminals on the rear of the SW-AVS7.

All of the speakers are identical. The speakers connected to the FRONT R and L terminals should be used as the right and left front speakers. The speakers connected to the REAR R and L terminals should be used as the right and left rear speakers.

Notes Do not connect speakers to the SW-AVS7 other than

the provided ones. Use the provided speaker cords for the connections.

Normally, use the short cords to connect to the front speakers, and use the long ones to connect to the rear speakers. The four cords are marked FRONT L, FRONT R, REAR L and REAR R for your reference.

How to Connect: Connect the provided speaker cords between the SPEAKERS terminals on the power amplifier/subwoofer (SW-AVS7) and the speaker terminals on each speaker as shown below. If the connections are incorrect, no sound will be heard from the speakers. Make sure that the polarity of the speaker wires is correct with reference to the + and markings. If these wires are reversed, the sound will be unnatural and lack bass.

To avoid mistakes, connect the wire with a line to the + terminals on both the power amplifier/subwoofer (SW- AVS7) and speaker, and connect the wire with no line to the terminals on both of them.

Caution Do not let the bare speaker wires touch each other as this could damage the SW-AVS7 and/or the speakers.

This procedure lets you adjust the sound balance between the front, center, and rear speakers using the built-in test tone generator. When this adjustment is performed, the sound output level heard at the listening position will be the same from each speaker. This is important for the best performance of the built-in Dolby Pro Logic surround decoder. The adjustment of each speaker output level should be done at your listening position with the remote control transmitter. Otherwise, the result may not be satisfactory.

1 Press the STANDBY/ON button (or the POWER button on the remote control transmitter) to turn the power on.

2 Press the VOLUME button to reduce the volume to minimum.

3 Press the TEST button. Make sure that B of the PROGRAM indicators light up.

USING THE AV-S7

USING THE AV-S7 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 DSP program. 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 because most of these sound field recreations are actual acoustic environments.

FEATURE

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

This program is ideal for enjoying sports programs which take place in arenas, indoor stadiums, or other venues.

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.
