    DTS and DTS ES The DSP-AX1 is also equipped with a DTS decoder, which uses a 5.1 channel system to create a full surround sound environment. It was developed as a way to replace the analog soundtracks of movies with six channels of digital sound. In comparison with Dolby Digital, DTS uses less compression to store the sound information.

  • Page 6: Digital Sound Fields (dsp)

    Various Input and Output Jacks The DSP-AX1 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.

  • Page 15: 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.

  • Page 16: Speaker Placement

    Where you place your speakers has a tremendous effect on how well your system sounds. Main TV or Video speaker monitor TV or Video monitor Center speaker 0.5~1m 1.5~3m 0.5~1m (3ft) (1~3ft) (5~15ft) (1~3ft) 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.

  • Page 17: Hookups

    Connecting to Digital Jacks The DSP-AX1 has digital jacks for direct transmission of digital signals through either coaxial or fiber optic cables. You can use the digital jacks to input PCM, DTS and Dolby Digital bitstreams. When you connect components to both the COAXIAL and OPTICAL jacks (for CD, DVD, and CBL/SAT) priority is given to the input signals from the COAXIAL jack.

  • Page 18: Connecting Audio Components

    When you connect other YAMAHA audio equipment (such as a CD player or changer, Tuner, MD deck, or tape deck), connect to terminals with the same number labels. Yamaha applies this labelling system to all its products.

  • Page 19: Connecting A Tape Deck

    • You can monitor audio recordings if you connect a three-head tape deck to the TAPE 3 (PLAY) jacks. • When you connect a tape deck to the DSP-AX1, keep the deck’s power on while using the DSP-AX1. If the power is off, the DSP-AX1 may distort the sound from other equipment.

  • Page 20: Connecting Video Components

    Connecting Video Components Before you connect any components, disconnect the power supply to all the components you plan to connect including the DSP-AX1 and determine which jacks are for the left and right channels and for input and output. After you finish all hookups, check them again to make sure they are correct.

  • Page 21: Connecting A Vcr

    VIDEO jack. Notes: • You can connect other VCRs to the DSP-AX1 using the VCR 2 and VCR 3 jacks. • If your VCR has an optical digital signal output jack, connect it to the OPTICAL VCR 1 jack of this unit.

  • Page 28: Speaker Settings

    The DSP-AX1 has seven SPEAKER SET items in the SET MENU that you must set according to the number of speakers in your configuration and their size. The following table summarizes these SPEAKER SET items, and shows the initial settings as well as other possible settings.

  • Page 29: Speaker Output Levels

    This section explains how to set the speaker output levels using the test tone generator. The Dolby Surround test is for balancing the output levels of the six speakers required for surround sound systems. The DSP test is for balancing the Front Effect speakers with the Main speakers for the DSP sound field programs.
