    - six coaxial and five optical inputs, one coaxial (Z1, Z2) and one optical output (Z1). Control Outputs - four 12 VDC @ 50 mA outputs for turning on amplifiers and controlling external systems such as a projection screen or B & K amplifier.

  • Page 8: The Basics

    The following is intended to familiarize users with common terms and applications of Home Theater equipment. Sources - your processor can provide audio from its built-in AM/FM tuner. It can also provide limited video from its on-screen menu system. You will want to connect a number of additional sources (VCR, DVD player, etc.) to your processor.

  • Page 9

    Stereo - Stereo contains two discrete, front left and right full range audio channels. This is the most common format for music and is also used on many movies. You may get stereo from any source - digital or analog. Sound will normally come from the seven speaker channels, but your processor can produce stereo in one (mono) to seven channels (see “Audio Modes under Operation”).

    DTS NEO:6 – DTS Neo:6 is an advanced matrix decoder. It will take any two-channel source and expand it into five or six channels, depending on the user’s speaker layout. Two-channel sources include VHS tapes, broadcast television, stereo CDs and DVDs. DTS Neo:6 provides separate, optimized modes for stereo music materials and matrix surround motion picture soundtracks.

  • Page 11

    THX Surround EX ™ - Dolby Digital Surround EX is a joint development of Dolby Laboratories and the THX division of Lucasfilm Ltd. In a movie theater, film soundtracks that have been encoded with Dolby Digital Surround EX technology are able to reproduce an extra channel, which has been added during the mixing of the program.

  • Page 12

    Bass Management - Dolby Digital and DTS-ES formats may contain up to 6 full range channels plus LFE. Only a system with six full-range (large) speakers plus a subwoofer can directly reproduce these formats. However, almost all commercially available center channel speakers are small and incapable of reproducing the lowest bass frequencies without distortion or even damage to the speaker.

  • Page 16: Making The Connection

    MAKING THE CONNECTION It’s tempting to just plug in your new A/V processor and have great sound pour out. Before you do that, take a few minutes to plan out how you want the processor to fit into your audio/video system. Ask yourself the following questions: What source components do I want to connect to my processor? (CD, VCR, etc.) What equipment will be receiving the audio and video? (TV monitor, Speakers, etc.)

Note - The control outputs can output a maximum of 50 mA. Check to see that the source you are connecting to the control out requires 50 mA or less current.

  • Page 23: Frequently Asked Questions

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS My collection of equipment differs from the labels on the back of my processor, how can I hook them up? Your processor provides 5 identical sets of inputs - V1, V2, DVD, CD, and SAT. Each of these has analog audio, composite video, S-video, coaxial digital audio, and optical digital audio.

The currently selected digital input (optical or coaxial) will appear at both of the processor’s digital outputs (optical and coaxial). Do I need to connect both analog and digital audio from my processor to my CD, DAT, MD, recorder, etc.? In general, yes.

  • Page 25: Setup, The Menu System

    SETUP For best results, perform the following set up procedure when you initially install your processor and anytime you change or add sources, speakers, etc. or when you rearrange your listening area THE MENU SYSTEM Setup of your processor will require you to navigate through the menu system. We recommend that you use a video monitor connected to the Zone 1 output along with the remote control provided with your processor.

  • Page 31: Speaker Location

    Ideally your speakers will be the same distance away from your listening area. However, physical limitations usually require placing the speaker in other than optimum locations. Your processor contains a means to electronically move each speaker’s location. This allows for superior reproduction of the directional cues available during the playback of movie or music.

  • Page 32: Speaker Levels, Crossovers + Lfe

    Speaker level calibration allows you to equalize the volume levels of each speaker to make up for differences in speaker characteristics and distances from the listener to the speakers. For best results it is important that you perform this calibration when you initially install your processor, whenever you change speakers, and whenever you rearrange your listening area.

  • Page 52: Audio Modes

    AUDIO MODES Your processor is designed to work with 5 audio listening modes. Under normal operation you may simply select Mono, Stereo, Surround, THX or DVD Audio via the remote control. In addition, you may choose an audio listening mode immediately followed by a speaker selection. The table below shows how your processor will route audio with the various audio modes and speaker selection combinations.

  • Page 53: Mono, Stereo, Surround, Surround Decoder Type, Pro Logic Movie (cinema), Pro Logic Music

    Audio Mode description MONO Sums the incoming audio information to a single channel and routes it to the desired speaker. Use this mode for listening to the FM tuner with weak RF signal strengths. It is also useful in the case of a large listening group and it is difficult to put everyone near the optimum listening position.

  • Page 54: Neo:6 Movie (cinema), Neo:6 Music, Dvd Audio

    When listening to movies using the DTS Neo:6 movie (cinema) decoder with stereo TV shows or other surround- encoded programs, there is further enhancement to soundfield directionality, which is close to the quality of discrete 6.1-channel sound. Conventional narrow band monaural surround channel is played as stereo with a more realistic feel and movement.

  • Page 55: Special Considerations

    Special Considerations For use with multi-channel encoded bitstreams pressing of SURROUND or THX toggles between the Movie and Music playback options. For use with 2-channel analog or digital audio, pressing of SURROUND or THX allows sequencing through the six surround decoder types, Pro Logic Movie, Pro Logic Music, Pro Logic II Movie, Pro Logic II Music, Neo:6 Movie and Neo:6 Music.

  • Page 56

    With the wide variety of audio source material available today, i.e. single channel mono, 2 channel mono, 2 channel stereo, 2 channel surround and multi-channel encoded audio, we believe that the reproduction of this material is best handled in audio categories. We have decided to define five “audio modes” which are actually different Plug and Play modes of operating our audio processor.
