This unit is a sophisticated digital sound processor designed specifically for decoding the Dolby Digital (AC-3). This unit consists of a Dolby Digital (AC-3) Decoder, Yamaha Digital Sound Field Processor and other original Yamaha functions developed using the newest technology to reproduce sources encoded with the Dolby Digital (AC-3) precisely as movie sound creators intended.
Yamaha DSP technology made it possible to present you with nearly the same sound experience as that of a large movie theater...
Dolby Digital (AC-3) + 2 Digital Sound Fields Digital sound fields are created on the independent left and right surround sides of the Dolby Digital (AC-3) decoded sound field respectively. They create a wide acoustic environment and emphasize surround-effect in the room, letting you feel much presence as if you are watching a movie in a popular Dolby Stereo Digital theater.
Remote Control Sensor Receives signals from the remote control unit provided for a Yamaha receiver or amplifier. This sensor receives only signals of switching the input source from TV/DBS to DVD/LD, and vice versa, so only the remote control unit which has the functions of selecting the TV/DBS and DVD/LD input sources is available.
Sound Field Program Selector Buttons Select the program “ DIGITAL”, “ “DIGITAL MOVIE THEATER” by pressing the corresponding button. The name of selected program lights up on the display. TEST Switch Used when you make the output balance adjustment to maximize the performance of your audio/video system including this unit.

“MAIN” to “MAIN”, “CENTER” to “CENTER”, “SURROUND” to “SURROUND” and “SUBWOOFER” to “SUBWOOFER”. If you use an amplifier or receiver (the Yamaha model RX-V2090 etc.) which has only 5-channel discrete input jacks without a SUBWOOFER input jack, no connection can be made from the SUBWOOFER output jack of this unit to the amplifier (or receiver).
If you want to input the signals from the DVD player to the DVD/LD COAXIAL input jack of this unit surely, it is recommended to switch off the RF demodulator. However, if your RF demodulator is the Yamaha model APD-1, you do not have to switch it off.
SELECTING THE OUTPUT MODES SUITABLE FOR YOUR SPEAKER SYSTEM This unit provides you the following four functions to determine the method of distributing output signals to speakers suitable for your audio system. When speaker connections are all completed, select a proper position on each function to make the best use of your speaker system.
3. MAIN SPEAKER (MAIN SP) Choices: SMALL/LARGE Preset position: LARGE SMALL: Select this position if your main speakers do not have a high ability for bass reproduction. However, if your system does not include a subwoofer, do not select this position. In this position, low bass signals (below 90 Hz) at the main channels are output from the SUBWOOFER output jack (if the SWFR or BOTH position is selected on “4.
METHOD OF CHANGING SELECTIONS Operations should be made watching information on this unit’s display panel. 1. Turn the power of this unit on. POWER 2. Press “ ” or “ ” once or more until the title of function on which you will change the selection appears on the display.
OUTPUT BALANCE ADJUSTMENT Adjusting the output level balance among all the channels are very important to maximize the performance of your system including this unit. This unit lets you adjust the sound output level balance among the left main, center, right main, right surround and left surround channels using the built-in test tone generator.
4. When “TEST CENTER ···dB” is shown on the display, adjust the level of test tone from the center speaker by pressing the PARAMETER + or – button so that it becomes almost as same as that of the main speakers. * While adjusting, the test-tone is fixed on the selected speaker.
ADJUSTMENTS IN THE “SET MENU” MODE The following nine types of functions maximize the performance of your system and expand your enjoyment for audio listening and video watching. 1. CENTER SPEAKER 2. REAR SPEAKER 3. MAIN SPEAKER 4. LFE/BASS OUT 5.
DESCRIPTIONS OF THE FUNCTIONS 1. CENTER SPEAKER 2. REAR SPEAKER See pages 14 to 16 for details. (Once you have selected proper modes, you do not have to make a setting change until any alteration is made in your speaker system.) 5.
8. DYNAMIC RANGE (Adjusting dynamic range) Choices: MAX/STD/MIN Preset position: MAX MAX: “Dynamic range” is the difference between the maximum level and the minimum level of sounds. Sounds on a movie originally designed for movie theaters feature very wide dynamic range. Dolby Digital (AC-3) technology can bring the original sound track into a home audio format with this wide dynamic range unchanged.
To enjoy listening to a source with the Dolby Digital (AC-3) decoded 1. Turn down the volume to a minimum level on the amplifier or receiver. 2. Turn on the power of this unit and other audio/video units to be used.
SELECTING SOUND FIELD PROGRAMS This unit provides you with three sound field programs ( DIGITAL, DIGITAL ENHANCED and DIGITAL MOVIE THEATER) to enjoy listening to an audio/video source with the Dolby Digital (AC-3) decoded. To select a program, simply press a sound field program selector button for the desired program.
DESCRIPTIONS OF THE SOUND FIELD PROGRAMS DIGITAL ( DIGITAL The built-in Dolby Digital (AC-3) decoder precisely reproduces sounds and sound effects of a source encoded with the Dolby Digital (AC-3).
