$60.00 Pioneer Reciever!!!!! Very happy with the item, however, next time I suggest a little better padding inside the carton.

Listening to Surround Sound
This receiver was designed with the easiest possible setup in mind, so with the following quick setup guide, you should have your system hooked up for surround sound in no time at all. In most cases, you can simply leave the receiver in the default settings. Be sure to complete all connections before connecting this unit to the AC power source. 1 Hook up your DVD player. For surround sound, youll want to hook up using a digital connection from the DVD player to the receiver. You can do this with either a coaxial, or an optical connection (you dont need to connect both). If you hook up using an optical cable, you should refer to Digital input settings on page 50 to assign the optical input to DVD. Use a video cord to connect the video output on your DVD player to the receiver using the jacks shown below. 2 Hook up your TV. Use a video cord to connect your receiver to the TV using the jacks as shown below.

3 Connect your speakers. A complete setup of speakers is shown here (six speakers for the VSX-D514/D714, and eight for the VSX-D814), but different home setups may vary. Simply connect the speakers you have in the manner shown below. The receiver will work with just two stereo speakers (the front speakers in the diagram) but using at least three speakers is recommended, and a complete setup is best. Make sure you connect the speaker on the right to the right terminal and the speaker on the left to the left terminal. Also make sure the positive and negative ( +/) terminals on the receiver match those on the speakers. You can use speakers with a nominal impedance between 616 (please see Switching the speaker impedance on page 72 if you plan to use speakers with an impedance of less than 8).

The multichannel input can only be used when DVD 5.1 ch is selected (see page 42).

Connecting video components
Connect your video components to the jacks as shown below. With digital video components (like a DVD player), you must use the connections shown on this page for the video signal, but in order to hear a digital source (like a DVD) you should hook up the audio to a digital input (see page 15). It is also a good idea to hook up your digital components with analog audio connections (see page 16). For better quality video, you can hook up using the component video jacks or the S-video jacks (quality descends in this order) on the rear of the receiver instead of the regular video jacks. Make sure they are connected to the video component using the same kind of connection. When connecting your equipment, always make sure the power is turned off and the power cord is disconnected from the AC outlet. The arrows indicate the direction of the signal

Making recordings

Chapter 8:

Making an audio or a video recording
You can make an audio or a video recording from the built-in tuner, or from an audio or video source connected to the receiver (such as a CD player or TV). Keep in mind you cant make a digital recording from an analog source or viceversa, so make sure the components you are recording to/from are hooked up in the same way (see Connecting up on page 14 for more on connections). If you want to record a video source, you also need to use the same type of connection for the source as for the recorder. For example, you cant record a component hooked up to Svideo jacks with a recorder hooked up to the component video outputs (see page 18 for more on video connections). 1 Select the source you want to record. Use the MULTI CONTROL buttons (or INPUT SELECT). 2 Select the input signal (if necessary). Press SIGNAL SELECT (front panel) to select the input signal corresponding to the source component (see page 38 for more on this). 3 Prepare the source you want to record. Tune to the radio station, load the CD, video, DVD etc. 4 Prepare the recorder. Insert a blank tape, MD, video etc. into the recording device and set the recording levels. Refer to the instructions that came with the recorder if you are unsure how to do this. Most video recorders set the audio recording level automaticallycheck the components instruction manual if youre unsure. 5 Start recording, then start playback of the source component.

The power of the component being input will only turn on or off if that component is able to be turned on directly by remote control. You can only input a code for the component type written on each MULTI CONTROL button (except RECEIVER and TUNER). Even if you dont input a preset code for the TV (TV/SAT MULTI CONTROL button) you will be able to control your TV using the dedicated TV CONTROL on the remote if you have assigned it to the TV CONT button. You may not be able to use a particular code even if it is listed on page 66. The remote control buttons will not be able operate other equipment unless preset with the method above. 4 Repeat steps 2 through 3 to try a different code, or to enter a code for another component you want to control. 5 When youre done, press RECEIVER.

5 minute guide

Introduction to home theater
You are probably used to using stereo equipment to listen to music, but may not be used to home theater systems that give you many more options (such as surround sound) when listening to soundtracks. Home theater refers to the use of multiple audio tracks to create a surround sound effect, making you feel like you're in the middle of the action or concert. The surround sound you get from a home theater system depends not only on the speakers you have set up in your room, but also on the source and the sound settings of the receiver. DVD-Video has become the basic source material for home theater due to its size, quality, and ease of use. Depending on the DVD, you can have up to seven different audio tracks coming from one disc, all of them being sent to different speakers in your system. This is what creates a surround sound effect and gives you the feeling of being there. This receiver will automatically decode Dolby Digital, DTS, or Dolby Surround DVD-Video discs, according to your speaker setup. In most cases, you wont have to make changes for realistic surround sound, but other possibilities (like listening to a CD with multi-channel surround sound) are explained in Listening to your system, starting on page 26.

4 Press ENTER. The display prompts you to select your room size. 5 Use the MULTI JOG dial to choose your room size. Depending on the distance of your speakers from the listening position, choose between small, medium, or large (S, M or L), M being an average-sized room. 6 Press ENTER.
7 Use the MULTI JOG dial to choose your listening position. You can cycle between the following choices:

FWD MID BACK

FWD If you are nearer to the front speakers than the surround speakers MID If you are equal distance from the front and surround speakers

Connecting up

Before making or changing the connections, switch off the power and disconnect the power cord from the AC outlet.

Audio/Video cords

Use audio/video cords (not supplied) to connect the audio/video components and a video cord to connect the monitor TV. Connect red plugs to R (right), white plugs to L (left), and the yellow plugs to VIDEO. Be sure to insert completely.
Component video cords (VSX-D514 only)
Use component video cords to get the best possible color reproduction of your video source. The color signal of the TV is divided into the luminance (Y) signal and the color (PB and PR) signals and then output. In this way, interference between the signals is avoided. Connect from the component video jacks on the rear of the receiver to the component video jacks on the video component you are hooking up.

VID EO

S-video cables (VSX-D514 only)
Use S-video cables (not supplied) to get clearer picture reproduction than regular video cords. Connect from an S-video jack on the rear of the receiver to an S-video jack on the video component you are hooking up. Be sure to insert completely.

Connecting digital components
For proper decoding of Dolby Digital/DTS soundtracks, you need to make digital audio connections. You can do this by either coaxial or optical connections (you dont need to do both). The quality of these two types of connections is the same, but since some digital components only have one type of digital terminal, it is a matter of matching like with like (for example, the coaxial output from the component to the coaxial input on the receiver). This receiver has two coaxial and one optical inputs. Connect your digital components as shown below. When connecting your equipment, always make sure the power is turned off and the power cord is disconnected from the wall outlet.

Extra Power mode speaker set up
VSX-D414 only see Using the Advanced surround effects on page 27 to switch on the Extra Power mode (EX POWER). DO NOT CONNECT A MONITOR, TV SET, HEATER, OR SIMILAR APPLIANCE TO THIS UNIT'S AC OUTLET. Do not connect appliances with high power consumption to the AC OUTLET in order to avoid overheating and fire risk. This can also cause the receiver to malfunction.

Speaker setting

Default setting: S (all speakers) You must let the receiver know how many speakers you have, and how big they are. The size you choose (large or small) determines how much bass is sent from the receiver to the speakers. In the display, F, C, and S refer to front, center, and surround speakers respectively. Speaker size is denoted as L for large speakers, S for small speakers, and (asterisk) if no speaker is connected. Cycle through the available choices using or and choose a configuration that matches your speaker setup. One of the following configurations should match your setup:

Subwoofer setting

Default setting: YES You can choose whether the subwoofer is used or not. Use the plus (PLUS) setting for extra bass. Use or to select a subwoofer setting: YES Sends bass frequencies from the small (S) speakers to the subwoofer. PLUS Sends bass frequencies from all speakers to the subwoofer (L speakers will also output bass). NO No bass frequencies are sent to the subwoofer.

LFE attenuator setting

If you chose the small front speaker setting, SW YES is automatically set and locked. You can only select the PLUS setting if the front speakers are set to L. Default setting: 0 dB Dolby Digital and DTS audio sources include ultra-low bass tones. Set the LFE attenuator as necessary to prevent the ultra-low bass tones from distorting the sound from the speakers. Use or to set the attenuation level (0 dB, 10 dB or dB()).
Crossover frequency setting
Default setting: 100 Hz Crossover frequency is the point where the receiver divides the high and low sounds (the frequencies) between the speakers. Since most smaller speakers cant handle deep bass tones, you can send these sounds to the subwoofer (or if you dont have a subwoofer, the large (L) speakers in your system) instead of the speakers set to small (S) in your setup. Choose the point at which you want the frequency routed to the subwoofer (or L speakers). We recommend setting this to 200 Hz if your S speakers are smaller bookshelf-type speakers. Use or to specify the crossover frequency for your small speakers: 100 Hz Sends bass frequencies below 100 Hz to the subwoofer (or L speakers). 150 Hz Sends bass frequencies below 150 Hz to the subwoofer (or L speakers). 200 Hz Sends bass frequencies below 200 Hz to the subwoofer (or L speakers).

10 dB )

(displays
When is selected ( appears in the display), LFE is not available.
Front speaker distance setting
Default setting: 10 ft. Sets the distance from the front speakers to the listening position. Use or to set the distance of the front speakers from the main listening position (within a range of 0.5 ft. to 45 ft.).
Center speaker distance setting
Default setting: 10 ft. The center speaker is normally placed directly in the front of the listening room and closer to the listening position than the front speakers. This means that the sound from the center speaker will be heard before the front speakers. To prevent this, set the center speaker distance setting to delay the sound from the center speaker so that the sound from the front and center speakers will be heard at the same time. Use or to set the distance of the center speaker from the main listening position (within a range of 0.5 ft. to 45 ft.).
If all speakers (front, center, and surround) are set to L, the crossover frequency cant be set because there are no S speakers ( appears in the display).
Dynamic range control setting
When C is selected in the speaker setting, the center distance cant be set. Default setting: OFF Dynamic range is the difference between the loudest and softest sounds in any given signal. With this setting, you can compress the dynamic range, so that low level sounds can be heard more easily (sounding relatively louder) yet louder sounds wont be too overbearing. Press or to set the dynamic range control (OFF, MAX, or MID).
Surround speaker distance setting
Default setting: 10 ft. Like the center speaker, you should set the distance of the surround speakers accurately to hear sounds coming from both front and surround speakers at the same time. Use or to set the distance of the surround speakers from the main listening position (within a range of 0.5 ft. to 45 ft.).
When listening at low volumes, set to MAX for maximum dynamic range compression. Dynamic range control is effective only when a Dolby Digital signal is being played back.
When S is selected in the speaker setting, the surround distance cant be set.
Dual mono setting Subwoofer distance setting
Default setting: 10 ft. Like your speakers, you should set the distance of your subwoofer accurately to hear sounds coming from all speakers at the same time. Use or to set the distance of the subwoofer from the main listening position (within a range of 0.5 ft. to 45 ft.). Default setting: ch1 The dual mono setting can only be used when listening to Dolby Digital discs with dual mono encoding. These discs are not widely used, but are sometimes used when it is necessary to have one language on one channel and a different language on the other. With this setting you can choose which channel in the dual mono setting you want to listen to. If Dolby Digital mode is switched on, you will hear the channel you have selected (either ch1 or ch2) through your center speaker. With Dolby Digital mode off, or if you dont have a center speaker, you will hear the channel you have selected through both front speakers. In the Lch1.Rch2 setting, the left front speaker will play channel 1 and the right front speaker will play channel 2. Use or to cycle through the possible DUAL MONO settings.

When NO is selected in the subwoofer setting, the subwoofer distance cant be set.

You should hear the test tone at the same volume from each speaker when seated in the main listening position. The channel level range is 10 dB. 5 When youre done, press TEST TONE to turn off the test tone.
TEST TONE LEVEL EFFECT CLASS

TUNING STATION DISPLAY

The speaker volume can be adjusted without outputting the test tone by pressing CH SELECT and then using LEVEL +/. However, you can only adjust the level of the speakers currently active in the mode you're listening to. You can set separate levels for the STANDARD, STEREO and DVD 5.1 ch modes, as well as for each ADVANCED SURROUND mode.

1 Press STANDARD. You can also press ADVANCED SURROUND. 2 Press TEST TONE to output the test tone. The test tone is output in the following order (depending on the speaker setting):
Since the subwoofer transmits an ultra-low frequency its sound may seem quieter than it actually is. Using test tones to set up your speaker system will overwrite any previous settings you had for the STANDARD or ADVANCED SURROUND modes.

Switching the speaker impedance
We recommend using speakers of 8 with this system, but it is possible to switch the impedance setting if you plan to use speakers with a 6 impedance rating.

INPUT ATT FL

With the receiver in standby, press STANDBY/ON while holding down the SPEAKER IMPEDANCE button. Each time you do this, you switch between the impedance settings: SP 6 OHM Use this setting if your speakers are rated at 6. SP 8 OHM Use this setting if your speakers are rated at 8 or more.

Using the tuner

Listening to the radio
The following steps show you how to tune to FM and AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and manual (step) tuning functions. Once you are tuned to a station you can memorize the frequency for recall latersee Saving station presets on the next page for more on how to do this.
Automatic tuning To search for stations in the currently selected band, press and hold the TUNING + / buttons for about a second. The receiver will start searching for the next station, stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for other stations. Manual tuning To change the frequency one step at a time, press the TUNING + / buttons. High speed tuning Press and hold the TUNING + / buttons for high speed tuning. Release the button at the frequency you want.
Improving FM stereo sound
If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono reception mode. This should improve the sound quality and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.
1 Press the FM or AM buttons to select the tuner. 2 Tune to a station. There are three ways to do this:

Saving station presets

If you often listen to a particular radio station, it's convenient to have the receiver store the frequency for easy recall whenever you want to listen to that station. This saves the effort of manually tuning in each time. This unit can memorize up to 30 stations, stored in three banks, or classes, (A, B and C) of 10 stations each. When saving an FM frequency, the MPX setting (see previous page) is also stored. Use the front panel controls to store station presets.

Making Recordings

Making an audio or a video recording
You can make an audio or a video recording from the built-in tuner, or from an audio or video source connected to the receiver (such as a CD player or TV) through the analog jacks. You will need to connect a CD recorder, tape deck, MD, VCR, or DVR deck to the CD-R/TAPE/MD or DVR/VCR outputs on the receiver to do so (see pages 1314 for more on this).

The receiver's volume, balance, tone (bass, treble, loudness), and surround effects have no effect on the recorded signal. 1 Select the source you want to record. Use the INPUT SELECTOR buttons to do this. 2 Select the input signal (if necessary). Press SIGNAL SELECT on the front panel to select the input signal corresponding to the source component (see page 29 for more on this). 3 Prepare the source you want to record. Tune to the radio station, load the CD, video, DVD etc. 4 Prepare the recorder (connected to either the CD-R/TAPE/MD or DVR/VCR outputs). Insert a blank tape, MD, video etc. into the recording device and set the recording levels. Refer to the instructions that came with the recorder if you are unsure how to do this. Most video recorders set the audio recording level automaticallycheck the components instruction manual if youre unsure. 5 Start recording, then start playback of the source component.
