Sound Enhancement Systems
This receiver is equipped with several built-in sound enhancement systemsto give you the sound quality you have once dreamed of - but now comes true:
Dolby Digital is optimal for DVD and SAT. This unit is equipped with Dolby Digital 5.1-channel input terminal so that you can enjoy enhanced full digital surround sound. Being different from Dolby Pro Logic in which only four channels ( Front Left, Front Right, Centre and Rear ) are used, the new system provides stereo separation of the rear speakers (Rear-Right Rear-Left ). These 5 channels, together with the subwoofer channel for basssounds ( counted as0.1 channel ), constitue as5.1-Channel (or 6 Channels ) Input for Dolby Digital that brings you the most sophisicated sound enjoyment. Press6 CH on the unit or DVDo6 CH button on the remote to select the input connected to an external 6channel decoder. Pressagain return to the most recently selected mode.You can only adjust Sound Control, SLEEPmode, DIM selection, Source Buttons and MUTE when this mode is selected.
DolbyProLogic andDolby3 Stereo
This surround system reproduces theater-like surround sound from Dolby-encoded software The Pro Logic mode usesthe built-in circuit to steer the Left, Center, Right and Surround channel audio signals and usesall five speakers and an optional subwoofer to play decoded Dolby Pro Logic program source, such asTV and VOR.The 3 Stereo mode will redirect the Surround signals to the front left and right speakers when only the front and center speakers are used. Usethis mode to suit your speaker system configurations (such assize and number of speakers) and type of program (such as VCR).
5.1chInputfor Dolby Digital
The Dolby Digital mode lets you enjoy full digital surround from software processed in the Dolby Digital format. Dolby Digital provides better sound quality and more powerful presence than conventional Dolby Surround. When the soundtrack of a Dolby Digital movie was made, all the sound effects are mixed down to six separate channels of digital audio, and these sixchannels of independent digital audio are pressed to a single stream of digital data on your DVD. When you play it by your DVD player, the receiver decodes this stream of digital data back to six audio channels for playback.


The Stereo mode usesthe two main channel outputs from the front speakers Usethis mode if you have connected the front speakers only

DSP(DigitalSound Processor)
Thesedigital sound effects resemble sounds in a real environment such asStadium, Concert, Theater, Arena, Church, Club DSP automatically converts analog audio signals to digital ones which enables you to adjust the sound without degrading the sound quality Different modes will give you different feel of size and type of listening environment


By using Dynamic Range Compression technology, you can enjoy enhanced sound quality by Dolby Digital at night without interrupting your roommates or neighbors. While enjoying a Dolby Digital enabled component (DVD, SAT),you can activate Night Mode by pressing NIGHT button at the front of the receiver, and this mode will compress the difference in volume between normal voices and sounds like explosions. There are two modes (SOFT,SOFTER)for you to choose the extents of compression.
You may also change the default settings if your connections are different from our recommendation (CDCoaxial, SAT-Optical 1 and DVD- Optical 2) by turning off the smart detect function. 1. Pressand hold TEST/SET UP until I./R SML shows on display. 2. PressTEST/SET UP repeatedly until SDET ON shows on display. 3. Rotate MULTI JOGto turn off (SDET OFF)smart detect. Now you can arrange your favourite settings by pressing SET/DEMO and then rotate MULTI JOGto select among optical/coaxial/analog inputs.Your selection will be stored automatically.
Fine Setting of the Components

Input Q I

One of the smartest features of the receiver is the ability to pre-select the best surround mode for you once you turn on the unit by pressing the Source Buttons (like DVD, SAT,CD) directly. The default surround modes for different components are astable below. If you decide to change the surround mode, you can press the SURR MODE button to change to the mode you want.
Fine Setting of the Speakers
This receiver supports a wide range of speakers and subwoofers. For optimal surround sound enjoyment, you need to register the speaker selection settings of your audio system. If you buy this receiver with accompanied speaker package, then this step has been done for you. Also, to make the surround sound more effective and

suit the acoustic conditions in your listening room, you need to delay the signal from some of the speakers. Such channel delay compensates for center or surround speakers that are closer to listening position than the front speakers. You can make use of the TEST/SET UP button to control the speakerssuch as their relative loudness.

Smart etect D

After you have connected all the optical/coaxial wires from your digital components (e.g. SAT,DVD), this function can automatically detect the inputting signals and arrange the optimum settings for you. Tables below show changes in settings as seen on display with digital and analog inputs:
