Ambience effects

This receiver is equipped with listening modes that allow
you to enjoy an enhanced sonic ambience with a variety
of video sources.
In order to obtain the optimum effect from the surround
modes, make sure to input the proper speaker settings
beforehand.

Surround modes

DTS
The DTS multi-channel audio format is available on CD, LD and DVD
software. DTS is a strictly digital format and cannot be decoded inside
most CD, LD or DVD players. For this reason, if you attempt to listen
to DTS encoded software through the analog output of your new CD,
LD or DVD player, you will experience digital noise in most cases. This
noise can be quite loud if the analog output is connected directly to a
high power amplification system. Proper measures for playing the
digital output as described below should be taken to avoid this
situation. To enjoy DTS Digital Surround playback, an external 5.1
channel DTS Digital Surround decoder system or an amplifier with a
built-in DTS Digital Surround decoder must be connected to the digital
output (S/P DIF, AES/EBU or TosLink) of a CD, LD or DVD player.
All models are incorporated with the DTS decoder.

quality, greater spatial accuracy, and improved dynamic range.
Note
Although a full set of speakers (front left, right, and center, surround
left and right, and a subwoofer) is required for true 5.1 channel Dolby
Digital surround sound, this receiver lets you enjoy Dolby Digital (and
Dolby Surround) program sources, even if you connect only the front
speakers.
*Optional in this mode.
* LFE = Low Frequency Effects. This channel delivers separate non-
directional bass signals to the subwoofer for more dynamic deep
bass sound effects.
Although only Dolby Digital soundtracks incorporate a separate low
frequency channel, connecting a subwoofer will also improve deep
bass performance in the other surround modes.

Dolby PRO LOGIC
Dolby Pro Logic II was designed specifically to provide a new sense
of spatiality, directionality and articulation of sounds from Dolby
Surround encoded sources (such as video and Laserdisc software

feedback logic design, a matrix surround decoding and the decoding
of stereo, full bandwidth surround outputs. The PRO LOGIC II modes
programmed into this receiver are "MOVIE", "MUSIC" and "PRO
LOGIC". The "MOVIE" mode of the PRO LOGIC II has preset
characteristics to produce a calibrated, high-level surround sound
playback while the "MUSIC" mode has user-adjustable characteris-
tics to offer the three optional controls, like "Dimension", "Center
Width" and "Panorama" modes to allow optimization of the
soundfields as desired. The "Dimension" control allows the user to
gradually adjust the soundfield either towards the front or towards
the rear; the "Center Width" control allows various adjustment of the
left-center-right speakers' balance; the "Panaroma" extends the
front stereo image to include the surround speakers for an exciting
"wraparound" effect with side wall imaging.
