SPEAKER SETUP This system has been designed to provide the best sound- field quality with a 5-speaker system, using front left and right speakers, rear left and right speakers and a center speaker.

The front speakers are used for the main source sound plus effect sounds. The rear speakers are used for effect and surround sounds. The center speaker is for the center sounds (dialog, vocals, etc.).

Notes If you do not use any of effect speakers (rear and/or center),

change the settings of SPEAKER SET items at the SET MENU (p.36) to designate the signals to other terminals you connect speakers to.

If you use speakers (with different tonal qualities) instead of the included speakers, the tone of a moving human voice and other types of sound may not shift smoothly. We recommend that you use speakers from the same manufacturer or speakers with the same tonal quality.

Speaker placement Refer to the following diagram when you place the speakers.

Front speakers Place the front left and right speakers an equal distance from the ideal listening position. The distance between each speaker and each side of the video monitor should also be the same.

Center speaker Align the front face of the center speaker with the front face of your video monitor. Place the speaker as close to the monitor as possible (such as directly over or under the monitor) and centrally between the front speakers.

Rear speakers Place these speakers behind your listening position, facing slightly inwards, nearly 1.8 m (6 feet) above the floor.

Subwoofer 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.

Note Although the speaker system in this system is magnetically

shielded, it may still affect the color on the television monitor when using this system near the television. Adjust the relative positions of this system and the television if this happens.

SPEAKER SETUP

Installing the speakers

Placing the center speaker Place the speaker on TV whose top is flat or on the floor under the TV or inside the TV rack so that it is stabilized. When placing the speaker on top of the TV, to prevent the speaker from falling down, put the provided fasteners at two points on the bottom of the speaker and the top of the TV.

Cautions Do not place the speaker on top of the TV whose area is

smaller than the bottom area of the speaker. If placed, the speaker may drop out causing an injury to you.

Do not place the speaker on top of the TV with an inclination. Do not touch the adhesive surface after peeling off the seal as

this will weaken its adhesive strength. Thoroughly wipe clean the surface where the fastener is to be

applied. Note that adhesive strength is weakened if the surface is dirty, oily or wet and that this may cause the center speaker to drop.

Placing the front and rear speakers

When placing the front and rear speakers on a flat surface, attach the included non-skid pads to the corners on the bottom of the speakers as shown below. This prevents the speakers from sliding around.

Peel off the seal

Fastener

Mounting the front and rear speakers on a wall

When mounting the speakers on a wall, use the holes on the speakers back panels.

1 Fasten screws into a firm wall or wall support as shown in the figure.

2 Hang the holes on the protruding screws. Make sure that the screws are securely caught by the narrow parts of the holes.

Warning Each speaker weighs 0.9 kg (11 lbs. 16 oz.). Do not mount

them on thin plywood or a wall with soft surface material. If mounted, the screws may come out of the flimsy surface and the speakers may fall. This damages the speakers or causes personal injury.

Do not install the speakers to a wall with nails, adhesives, or any other unstable hardware. Long-term use and vibrations may cause them to fall.

To avoid accidents resulting from tripping over loose speaker cables, fix them to the wall.

Select a proper position on the wall to mount the speaker so that no one will injure his/her head or face.

ADJUSTING SPEAKER OUTPUT LEVELS This section explains how to adjust speaker output levels using the test tone generator. When this adjustment is complete, the output level heard at the listening position should be the same from each speaker. This is important for best performance of the digital sound field processor, and the various decoders (Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Pro Logic II and DTS).

Note Since this system cannot enter the test mode while headphones

are connected to this system, be sure to unplug the headphones from the PHONES ( SILENT) jack when using the test tone.

Using the test tone Use the test tone to balance the output levels of the speakers.

Note The adjustment of each speaker output level should be made at

your listening position using the remote control.

1 Press AMP.

2 Press TEST to output the test tone.

3 Press VOL +/ to adjust the volume of this system so you can hear the test tone. The test tone is heard (in order) from the LEFT (front left speaker), CENTER (center speaker), RIGHT (front right speaker), R SUR. (rear right speaker), L SUR.

Features

This program adds a deep and spatial feeling to video game sounds.

This program produces an enthusiastic atmosphere and lets you feel as if you are at an actual jazz or rock concert.

With this program, you can enjoy watching various TV programs such as news, variety shows, music programs or sports programs. In a stereo broadcast of a sports game, the commentator is oriented at the center position, and the shouts and the atmosphere in the stadium spread on the surround side, while their spread to the rear is properly restrained.

This program is provided for reproducing monaural video sources (such as old movies). The program produces the optimum reverberation to create sound depth by using only the presence sound field.

This program creates the extremely wide sound field of a 70-mm movie theater. It precisely reproduces the source sound in detail, making both the video and the sound field incredibly real. This is ideal for any kind of video source encoded with Dolby Surround, Dolby Digital or DTS (especially large-scale movie productions).

This program clearly reproduces dialog and sound effects in the latest sound form of science fiction films, thus creating a broad and expansive cinematic space amid the silence. You can enjoy science fiction films in a virtual-space sound field that includes Dolby Surround, Dolby Digital and DTS-encoded software employing the most advanced techniques.

This program is ideal for precisely reproducing the sound design of the newest 70-mm and multichannel soundtrack films. The sound field is made to be similar to that of the newest movie theaters, so the reverberations of the sound field itself are restrained as much as possible.

This program is for reproducing sounds from 70-mm and multichannel soundtrack films, and is characterized by a soft and extensive sound field. The presence sound field is relatively narrow. It spatially spreads all around and toward the screen, restraining the echo effect of conversations without losing clarity.

This program ideally simulates the multi-surround speaker systems of the 35-mm film theaters. Dolby Pro Logic and Dolby Pro Logic II decoding, Dolby Digital decoding or DTS decoding and digital sound field processing create precise effects without altering the original sound orientation. The surround effects produced by this sound field wrap around the viewer naturally from the back to the left and right, and toward the screen.

The built-in decoder precisely reproduces sounds and sound effects from sources. The highly efficient decoding process improves crosstalk and channel separation and makes sound positioning smoother and more precise. In this program, no DSP effect is applied.

y When you set this system in the standby mode, the current source and DSP program are memorized and are automatically selected

when you turn on the power again. When you select an input source, this system automatically selects the last DSP program used with that source. The indicator does not light up when selecting program No. 9 except in Enhanced mode. The acoustics of your listening room affect the DSP program. It is recommended to use a room with fewer sound reflections to

maximize the effect created by the program.

Notes There are 9 programs with sub-programs available with this system. However, the selection depends on the input signal format and

not all sub-programs can be used with all input signal formats. When a monaural source is being played with PRO LOGIC/Normal or PRO LOGIC/Enhanced, or PRO LOGIC II Movie, sound will

be hardly heard from the front speakers and the rear speakers. Sound can only be heard from the center speaker. (If 1A CENTER on the SET MENU is set to NON, the center channel sound is output from the front speakers.)

3 SP DLY TIME (speaker delay time)

Use this feature to adjust the delay of the center channel sounds. This feature works when there is sound output from the center speaker, with a source like Dolby Digital or DTS, etc. Ideally, the center speaker should be the same distance from the main listening position as the left and right speakers.

However, in most home situations, the center speaker is placed in line with the front speakers. By delaying the sound from the center speaker, the apparent distance from the center speaker to the main listening position can be adjusted to make it seem the same as the distance between the front left and right speaker to the listening position. Adjusting the delay time for the center speaker is especially important for giving depth to the dialogue.

Control range: CENTER ............. 0 to 5 ms

Initial setting: CENTER ............. 0 ms

Press j / i to increase or decrease the delay of the center channel sounds.

y Increasing the delay by 1 ms simulates moving the speakers

about 30 cm (one foot) farther away from the listening position.

GLOSSARY

Bitstream This is the digital form of multiple channel audio data (eg., 5.1 channel) before it is decoded into its various channels.

CINEMA DSP 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, its 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.

Decoder A decoder restores the coded signals on DVDs to normal. This is called decoding.

Dolby Digital This is a method of coding digital signals developed by Dolby Laboratories. Apart from stereo (2-channel) audio, these signals can also be 5.1-channel audio. A large amount of audio information can be recorded on one disc using this method.

Dolby Pro Logic A surround system where a 4-channel audio track is recorded as 2 channels and then is restored to 4 channels for play. The surround channel is monaural and can reproduce up to 7 kHz.

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 channels, 1 center channel, and 2 rear channels (instead of only 1 rear channel for conventional Pro Logic technology). A music mode is also available for 2-channel sources in addition to the movie mode.

DTS (Digital Theater Systems) This surround system is used in many movie theaters around the world. There is good separation between the channels, so realistic sound effects are possible.

Dynamic range Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level of sound that can be heard above the noise of the equipment and the highest level of sound before distortion occurs.

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 channels in a Dolby Digital or DTS 5.1 channel systems.

Linear PCM (pulse code modulation) PCM is the usual digital method used for music CDs. DVDs have a greater volume so they use linear PCM, which has a higher sampling rate. Compressed PCM signals are called packed PCM (PPCM).

Matrix 6.1 The system incorporates Matrix 6.1 decoder for Dolby Digital and DTS multi-channel software that enables 6.1- channel reproduction by adding the rear center channel to existing 5.1-channel format. (The rear center channel is created from rear left and right channels, and outputted from virtual rear center speaker.) With this additional channel, you can experience more dynamic and realistic moving sound especially with scenes with fly-over and fly-around effects.

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.

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 using headphones.

Virtual CINEMA DSP YAMAHA has developed a virtual CINEMA DSP algorithm that allows you to enjoy DSP sound field surround effects even without center or rear speakers by using virtual rear speakers.
