  • Page 6: Features

    Yamaha developed the Virtual CINEMA DSP algorithm which allows you to experience the virtual sound fields without surround speakers. This makes it possible for the DSP-AZ1 to produce a full surround sound catering to the number of speakers you have. The DSP-AZ1 also has a SILENT CINEMA DSP algorithm which is achieved by the crosstalk processing applying the precise Head Related Transfer Function.

  • Page 7: Various Input And Output Jacks

    I Various input and output jacks The DSP-AZ1 has various output jacks for audio and video signals as well as a digital recording output jack. Many input jacks are also available for connection to multiple audio-video sources. All the video inputs and outputs have S-video jacks in addition to standard composite video jacks for improved video picture quality.

    SPEAKER SYSTEM CONFIGURATIONS The most complete speaker configuration consists of eight speakers: the left and right main speakers, a center speaker, the left and right rear speakers, the left and right front effect speakers, and a rear center speaker. If you do not use eight speakers, you can direct the signals for speakers that are not in your system to other speakers in your configuration.

    I Placing the subwoofers Place the front subwoofer near the main speakers. Turn it slightly toward the center of the room to reduce wall reflections. If you use a rear subwoofer, place it behind the main listening position. The placement of the rear subwoofer is not critical because of the ultra low frequencies of the sound being reproduced.

  • Page 89: Recreating A Sound Field, Illustration Of The Virtual Sound Sources And Echo Patterns

    The traditional stereo system that uses only two speakers is not capable of recreating a realistic sound field. Yamaha’s DSP requires four effect speakers to recreate sound fields based on the measured sound field data. The processor controls the strength and delay time of the signals output from the four effect speakers to localize the virtual sound sources in a full circle around the listener.

  • Page 90: Hi-fi Dsp-sound Field Program

    Caution • The sound field programs for this unit are designed based upon the detailed information that Yamaha sound engineers have collected by measuring the sound effect characteristics at the actual concert halls and music venues all over the world. Therefore you may find some difference in reverberation and volume of the sounds that are output from each of your speakers.
