PREPARATION STEPS In order to enjoy sound and video images with this sound system, follow the procedures as described below. See each page for details.

Installing batteries in the remote control (P.3)

Speaker setup (P.11) Speaker placement (P.11) Installing the speakers (P.12)

Connections (P.14 19) Connecting TV and audio/video components (P.14) Connecting the antennas (P.16) Connecting the speakers (P.17) Connecting the AC power cord (P.19) Turning on the power (P.19)

Adjusting speaker output levels (P.20)

Before connecting components Do not connect this unit or other components to the

mains power until all connections between the components have been completed.

Be sure all connections are made correctly, that is to say, L (left) to L, R (right) to R, + to + and to . Some components require different connection methods and have different jack names. Refer to the operation instructions for each component to be connected to this unit.

Insert the plugs properly. The speakers may not output any sound or may output noise if they are not inserted properly.

The name of jack corresponds to input selector. The VOLTAGE SELECTOR on the rear panel of this

unit must be set for your local main voltage BEFORE plugging into the AC main supply. Voltages are 220/240 V AC, 50 Hz. (General model)

SPEAKER SETUP This unit 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.60) 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 unit is magnetically

shielded, it may still affect the color on the television monitor when using this unit near the television. Adjust the relative positions of this unit 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 four 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

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

1 Put the provided pads at the four corners on the rear of the front and rear speakers to prevent the front and rear speakers from moving by vibrations.

2 Fasten screws into a firm wall or wall support as shown below.

3 Hang the holes on the protruding screws.

Make sure that the screws are securely caught by the narrow parts of the holes.

You can use the lower holes on the rear of the front/rear speakers.

Cautions Each speaker weighs 1.1 kg (2 lbs. 6 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.

This is the sound field at stage front in The Bottom Line, a famous New York jazz club, that seats up to 300 people. Its wide left to right seating arrangement offers a real and vibrant sound.

The ideal program for lively, dynamic rock music. The data for this program was recorded at LAs hottest rock club. The listeners virtual seat is at the center-left of the hall.

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

Using this program increases the listening position range. This is a sound field suitable for background music at parties, etc.

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 unit 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 unit 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.

Notes There are 9 programs with sub-programs available with this unit. However, the selection depends on the input signal format and not

all sub-programs can be used with all input signal formats. The acoustics of your listening room affect the DSP program. Minimize the sound reflections in your room to maximize the effect

created by the program. When a monaural source is being played with PRO LOGIC/Normal or PRO LOGIC/Enhanced, or PRO LOGIC II Movie, no sound

will be 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.)

1D BASS (LFE/bass out mode) LFE signals carry low-frequency effects when this unit decodes a Dolby Digital or DTS signal. Low-frequency signals are defined as 90 Hz and below. The Low- frequency signals can be directed to both front left and right speakers, and the subwoofer (subwoofer can be used for both stereo reproduction and the DSP program).

Choices: SWFR (subwoofer), FRONT, BOTH

SWFR Select this if you use a subwoofer. The LFE signals are directed to the subwoofer.

FRONT Select this if you do not use a subwoofer. The LFE signals are directed to the front speakers.

BOTH The LFE signals are directed to the subwoofer. Low- frequency signals designated to the front channels in accordance with other speaker mode settings are directed to both front speakers and a subwoofer.

1E F. Level (front level mode) Change this setting if you cannot match the output level of the center and rear (L/R) speakers with that of the front speakers because of unusually high-efficiency performance from the front speakers.

Choices: Nrm (Normal), 10 dB

Nrm Select this if you can match the output level of the center and rear speakers with that of the front speakers when using the test tone.

10 dB Select this if you cannot match the output level of the effect speakers with that of the front speakers when using the test tone.

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.

Center speaker image

4 D. RANGE (dynamic range) Use this feature to adjust the dynamic range. This setting is effective only when this unit is decoding Dolby Digital signals.

Choices: MAX, STD (standard), MIN (minimum)

MAX Select the MAX for feature films.

STD Select the STD for general use.

MIN Select the MIN for listening to sources at low volume levels.

Note Some types of the Dolby Digital software do not support

MIN for the dynamic range. If MIN is selected to play this type of software, the volume may be extremely lowered fall greatly, sharply. If this happens, select MAX or STD.

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.

Component video signal With the component video signal system, the video signal is separated into the Y signal for the luminance and the PB/CB and PR/CR signals for the chrominance. Color can be reproduced more faithfully with this system because each of these signals is independent. The component signal is also called the color difference signal because the luminance signal is subtracted from the color signal. A monitor with component input jacks is required in order to use the component signal for output.

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.

Film and video DVDs are recorded using either film or video. Film is recorded at 24 frames per second, the rate movies are filmed at, although some recent progressive material is recorded at 30 frames per second. Video is recorded at 30 frames per second.

Frame still and field still A still is shown when you pause a moving picture. A frame still is made up of two alternating fields, so the picture may appear blurred, but overall quality is high. A field still is not blurred, but it has only half the information of a frame still so picture quality is lower. Frames are the still pictures that go together to make a moving picture. There are about 30 frames shown each second. One frame is made up of two fields. A regular television shows these fields one after the other to create frames.

Group A DVD audio disc is divided into large sections called groups and smaller sections called tracks. The numbers allocated to these sections are called group numbers and track numbers.

Matrix 6.1 The unit 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.

Pan&Scan/Letterbox In general, DVD-Video are produced with the intention that they are viewed on a widescreen television with an aspect ratio of 16:9. This means you can view most material with the intended aspect ratio on a widescreen television. Material with this ratio will not fit onto a standard television with an aspect ratio of 4:3. Two styles of picture, Pan&Scan and Letterbox, deal with this problem. Pan&Scan: The sides are cut off so the picture fills the

screen. Letterbox: Black bands appear at the top and bottom of

the picture so the picture itself appears in an aspect ratio of 16:9.

Playback control (PBC) If a Video CD has playback control written on it or its jacket, it means that particular scenes or information can be selected for viewing interactively with the television using the menu screen. This unit can play Video CDs with playback control. Using menus to control play of a Video CD is called menu play in these operating instructions.

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.

Interlace and progressive output NTSC, the video signal standard, has 525 interlaced (i) scan lines, whereas progressive scanning uses twice the number of scan lines. This is called 525p. The 525i video signals output from this units COMPONENT VIDEO OUT terminals (Y, PB / CB, PR/CR) allow you to enjoy higher quality pictures than if the signals were output from the video output terminal or S VIDEO OUT terminal. The COMPONENT VIDEO OUT terminals are also able to handle 525p (progressive) video signals which are of even greater resolution.

I/P/B MPEG, the video compression standard adopted for use with DVD-Video, codes frames using these 3 picture types. I: Intra coded picture (I-picture)

This is the standard picture and is a complete picture in itself. This means it has the best picture quality and is the best to use when adjusting the picture.

P: Predictive coded picture (P-picture) This picture is calculated based on past I or P- pictures.

B: Bidirectionally-predictive coded picture (B-picture) This picture is calculated by comparing past and future I and P-pictures so it has the lowest volume of information.

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).

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.

S video signal With the S video signal system, the video signal normally transmitted using a pin cable is separated and transmitted as the Y signal for the luminance and the C signal for the chrominance through the S video cable. Using the S VIDEO jack eliminates video signal transmission loss and allows recording and playback of even more beautiful images.

Title/Chapter DVD-Video are divided up into large sections, titles, and smaller sections, chapters. The numbers allocated to these sections are called title numbers and chapter numbers.

Track This is the smallest division on DVD-Audio, CD, and Video CD, and usually equates to a single song.

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.
