Accurate Touch Volume Control No one expects more from a volume control than up and down except Yamaha. We decided that controlling the volume could be made both easier and more accurate, and the result is the Accurate Touch Volume Control. It lets you make delicate adjustments within a narrow range, yet enables you to move to very high or low levels more quickly. Its extreme accuracy is due to a high-signalresolution analogue design in
conjunction with an ultra-precise digital control circuit (Yamaha original YAC-520 LSI). The wide control range extends from 0dB to -99dB, with narrow 0.5dB steps throughout the entire range for delicate control, even at low volumes. Processor Direct Switching The DSP-AZ2 has a The DSP processing and sound format decoding system in on a single Processor Direct board, which is shielded to prevent interference.

* In addition to the six channels (Main L/R, Center, Rear L/R, Rear Center) there is a subwoofer output (hence 6.1-channel format compatibility) and two front effect channels (a total of 9 DACs). The front effect channel signals, unique to Yamaha CINEMA DSP, provide more precise separation of dialogue, music and effects on the front sound stage and a superior sense of presence as compared to other systems.
Behind Outstanding High Sound Quality
The DSP-AZ2 is designed to deliver the full impact and dynamism of movies by supplying generous amounts of power (including bass power!). Thats why despite all the digital processing magic, it is first and foremost a powerful amplifier. By drawing on our long years of amplifier expertise (weve created some of the worlds legendary power amps and preamps) and refusing to make any compromises on quality, weve endowed the DSP-AZ2 with awesome capabilities. It incorporates a powerful 8-channel amplifier with high dynamic power and sophisticated circuitry like linear damping. Total Low-Impedance Design All current signal paths, from the power supply to the power amplifier to the speaker drive circuits, utilize a lowimpedance design. This improves the separation characteristics among multichannels and allows the use of a wider variety of low-impedance speakers. 8-Channel High Power, Discrete Amplifier Configuration The DSP-AZ2 will deliver as much as 130W of power to each of six channels (two main, two rear, one center and one rear center, RMS*) plus 25W x 2 (two
front effect). This is more than enough to fill even the largest rooms with vibrant music and Richter-scale sound effects. * Max power: 175W x 6 + 35W x 2. High Dynamic Power Capability The DSP-AZ2 is capable of delivering large amounts of reserve power for accurate reproduction of the high energy peaks that are especially prevalent in digital audio sources. This emphasizes the musics dynamic qualities and provides a sharper sound image. Linear Damping Level variations due to high amp impedance tend to reduce an amplifiers damping factor, and frequency variations cause it to fluctuate. This circuit cancels the effect of these variations, maintaining a high, stable damping factor, for superior articulation of all sounds and better frequency response. Anti-Resonance Alminum-Extruded Heat Sinks with High Efficient Cooling System The large, anti-resonance, aluminumextruded heat sink is located on the base frame with the power amplifier
circuit boards to prevent interference with the preamplifier and digital processing sections. The power block is equipped with a fan, but it is only used for extreme heat build-up and is not activated during normal operation, preventing the occurrence of even the slightest unwanted noise. Wide-Range Frequency Response for DVD-Audio and SACD With an extremely wide frequency range of 10 to 100,000Hz, this amplifier is capable of delivering the full potential of the new digital audio sources DVDAudio and SACD. Optimum Space Utilization The use of highly integrated LSIs allows an interior design that maximizes power and sound quality by positioning all the digital processors and related circuitry in one small area. This leaves most of the space open for the power amplifier components: transformers, capacitors, heat sink and so on. This means that these parts can be much larger than usual for greater power, that they can be separated for minimum chance of interference, and that circuits can be arranged in straight lines for maximum signal purity.

Linear Damping Yamahas Linear Damping maintains a high, stable damping factor even at frequencies from 10 to 20 kHz, where it generally tends to fall off. The result is superior articulation of all sounds.
Finest Parts Used Throughout In order to realize the goals of massive power and superlative sound quality, Yamaha technicians completely reevaluated all the parts used in previous amplifiers. As a result, many were replaced with more expensive or custom-designed units. Extra-Large Custom-Made Block Electrolytic Capacitors Developed specifically for the DSP-AZ2, the 22,000F block electrolytic capacitors use lowmagnification foil and are exceptionally high quality. Twin Direct Signal Path Speaker Relays with Gold-Plated Crossover Connection and Shielding Speaker switching is accomplished by
relays right in front of the speaker terminals, rather than at the switch position. This results in a shorter signal path and minimum output impedance. High Performance Electrolytic Capacitors and Film Capacitors At this level of sound quality, even these small parts make a difference. The high precision Electrolytic and metallic mylar film capacitors use polypropylene material and are the highest performance types on the market. Extra-Large Low-Impedance Transformer The large 8.9kg low-impedance transformer is an important factor in the DSP-AZ2s extremely stable power supply.
CINEMA DSP Processing Board for Optimum Performance The printed circuit board holds both the DSP processing and sound format decoding circuitry, thus saving space, and is shielded to prevent interference. The Inlet-Type Power Cable The Inlet-Type Power Cable is separate, rather than attached to the unit. It is a thicker type than usual, for higher power handling capacity. Thick, Low-Impedance PC Board Wiring with 1.6mm Copper Jumper Cables The audio signal is routed within the amplifier through exceptionally thick, top quality wire, ensuring that signal purity is maintained.

Yamaha CINEMA DSP for Home Theater: Dramatically Different Than Other Systems.
CINEMA DSP Puts You Inside the Scene With Dolby Digital and DTS Digital Surround, CINEMA DSP projects three sound fields into the home theater: a Presence sound field in the front and two Surround sound fields in the left rear and right rear. The Presence field supplies the dialogue, music and effects, while the Surround fields are independent stereo sound fields that create a large-scale surround environment, resulting in a powerfully realistic three-dimensional soundscape. And our newest Quad-Field system adds a rear center field for 6.1-Channel Digital Surround formats. The success of CINEMA DSP is due as much to Yamaha's outstanding sound field software as to the hardware
(microprocessors, etc.). The overwhelming sense of realism is due to the fact that data from real sound fields is used (in this case, the actual dubbing theaters that movie sound technicians use). This is why even though other systems may sound "good," you still have the sense of watching/listening to the scene, whereas with Tri-Field/Quad-Field CINEMA DSP, you feel as though you are actually INSIDE the scene. This results in sound with highly accurate localization, smooth movement, exceptional clarity and richness, and startlingly realistic presence. Yamaha DSP: Digital Sound Field Processing Digital Sound Field Processing is a technology developed by Yamaha in 1986
to measure the sound fields, or acoustic characteristics, of concert halls, jazz clubs and other performance spaces. Yamaha engineers invented a technique called Single Point Quad Miking that allowed them to make precise measurements of these spaces, and they went to many famous venues around the world, gathering data which they stored in custom-designed computer chips. Utilizing this data in even more powerful processing chips allows Yamaha DSP components, with four or more speakers, to recreate the original sound fields right in ordinary listening rooms. Other manufacturers try to imitate these results with what they call Digital Signal Processing, but this is only their audio engineers' best guesses as to

Brief Guide to Movie Sound Formats
Dolby Pro-Logic Dolby Labs basic 4-channel format, widely used in ordinary theaters and for home videos. Dolby Pro Logic II Improved version of Dolby Pro-Logic for music and movies. With a more intelligent matrix decoder, it is suitable for both stereo and surround-encoded sources. It offers bass management as well as the option of incorporating width, dimension and panorama controls. Dolby Digital The most popular 5.1-channel home theater sound system. An improvement over Dolby ProLogic in that it offers: 1) Full frequency response in all channels (3Hz 20kHz), 2) discrete surround channels, and 3) a separate track for bass only, called the Low Frequency Effects channel. Dolby Digital EX Dolby's latest surround format, this is Dolby Digital with an added center rear channel. The rear center channel is actually matrixed into the two rear channels, and is extracted upon playback. (Formerly called Dolby Digital Surround EX, or Dolby Digital Matrix 6.1.) DTS Digital Surround The basic DTS 5.1 channel sound format. Uses a higher data rate than Dolby Digital. DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 DTS-ES uses its large bandwidth to provide a fully discrete rear center channel, as opposed to a matrixed one. DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 DTS-ES uses its large bandwidth to provide a fully discrete rear center channel, as opposed to a matrixed one. DTS Neo:6 Provides 5.1 or 6.1 channels of matrix decoding from stereo matrix material. Also decodes Extended Surround matrix soundtracks and has a Music mode to expand stereo non-matrix recordings to 5.1 or 6.1 channels. DTS 96/24 Delivers 96kHz/24-bit high resolution audio for 5.1channel surround sound on DVD discs. The benefits are greater bit depths for extended dynamic range and high sampling rates for wider frequency response.
what the acoustic properties of concert halls or jazz clubs might be. Digital Sound Field Processing was one important step in Yamaha's quest to bring listeners "Natural Sound." They could hear how their favorite singer or group would actually sound in New York's Bottom Line, for example, or even in a cathedral! Tri-Field and Quad-Field CINEMA DSP Tri-Field CINEMA DSP projects three sound fields into the home theater: a Presence sound field in the front and two Surround sound fields in the left rear and right rear, resulting in a powerfully realistic three-dimensional soundscape. And now Yamaha also offers Quad-Field CINEMA DSP. It adds
an additional rear center sound field to the Tri-Field system, in order to enjoy the new 6.1-channel formats, Dolby Digital EX and DTS-ES. SILENT CINEMA and Virtual CINEMA DSP The SILENT CINEMA mode gives you private listening enjoyment of multi-channel music or movie sound, including Dolby Digital and DTS surround, through ordinary headphones. Its automatically selected when the headphones are plugged in. Virtual CINEMA DSP lets you enjoy the effects of CINEMA DSP surround sound without using rear speakers. It can be used with the main/center/front effect speakers or even with just the two main left and right speakers.

Conventional 5.1-Channel/6.1-Channel System vs. CINEMA DSP Conventional 5.1-channel/6.1-channel audio reproduction systems base their sound on Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, using matrix and steering technologies to create surround sound effects. Yamaha CINEMA DSP is much more advanced, actually creating richly realized independent sound fields that merge to envelop you in an unmatched surround sound experience. With dialogue, music and effects from the presence (front) and rear sound fields (plus rear center with 6.1-channel Quad-Field CINEMA DSP), it will seem as if the walls of your room have disappeared and you are in the middle of your own immense theater!

For music sources 8ch Stereo
This program recreates the acoustic environment of a lively disco in the heart of a big city. The sound is dense and highly concentrated. It is also characterized by a high-energy, immediate sound. Using this program increases the listening position range. This is a sound field suitable for background music at parties. This program adds a deep and spatial feeling to video game sounds. This program produces an enthusiastic atmosphere and lets you feel as if you are at an actual jazz or rock concert. This program provides excellent vocal depth and overall clarity by restraining excessive reverberation. The surround sound field is relatively moderate but it reproduces beautiful sound using data collected from a concert hall. This program is provided for reproducing monaural video sources (such as old movies). The program produces the optimum reverberation to create sound depth using only the presence sound field. Though the presence sound field is relatively narrow, the surround sound field employs the sound environment of a large concert hall. With this program, you can enjoy watching various TV programs such as news, variety shows, music programs or sports programs. This program creates the extremely wide sound field of a 70-mm movie theater. It precisely reproduces the source sound in detail, making both the video and the sound field incredibly real. This is ideal for any kind of video source encoded with Dolby Surround, Dolby Digital or DTS (especially large-scale movie productions). This program clearly reproduces dialog and sound effects in the latest sound form of science fiction films, thus creating a broad and expansive cinematic space amid the silence. You can enjoy science fiction films in a virtual-space sound field that includes Dolby Surround, Dolby Digital and DTS-encoded software employing the most advanced techniques.

This program is ideal for precisely reproducing the sound design of the newest 70-mm and multichannel soundtrack films. The sound field is made to be similar to that of the newest movie theaters, so the reverberations of the sound field itself are restrained as much as possible. This program is for reproducing sounds from 70-mm and multichannel soundtrack films, and is characterized by a soft and extensive sound field. The presence sound field is relatively narrow. It spatially spreads all around and toward the screen, restraining the echo effect of conversations without losing clarity. This program ideally simulates the multi-surround speaker systems of the 35-mm film theaters. Dolby Pro Logic decoding, Dolby Digital decoding or DTS decoding and digital sound field processing create precise effects without altering the original sound orientation. The surround effects produced by this sound field wrap around the viewer naturally from the back to the left and right, and toward the screen. The built-in decoder precisely reproduces sounds and sound effects from sources. The highly efficient decoding process improves crosstalk and channel separation and makes sound positioning smoother and more precise. In this program, no DSP effect is applied. To reproduce 2 channel sources decoding into multichannels in each decoding mode.

REC OUT allows you to record one source while watching and/or listening to another source. Recording adjustments and other operations are performed from the recording components. Refer to the operation instructions for these components.
Do a test recording before you start an actual recording. When this unit is set in the standby mode, you cannot record between other components connected to this unit. The setting of BASS, TREBLE, BASS EXTENSION, VOLUME, 3 L/R BALANCE on the SET MENU and DSP programs does not affect the recorded material. A source connected to the 6CH INPUT jacks of this unit cannot be recorded. S-video and composite video signals pass independently through this units video circuits. Therefore, when recording or dubbing video signals, if your video source component is connected to provide only an S-video (or only a composite video) signal, you can record only an S-video (or only a composite video) signal by your VCR. A given input source is not output on the same REC OUT channel. (For example, the signal input from VCR 1 IN is not output on VCR 1 OUT.) Check the copyright laws in your country to record from records, CDs, radio, etc. Recording of copyrighted material may infringe copyright laws.
