I Notes on digital signals
The digital input jacks of this unit can handle 96 kHz sampling digital signals. Note the following when a digital signal with a sampling frequency greater than 48 kHz is input to this unit: You cannot use any DSP programs. The unit will output sound as 2-channel stereo from the main left and right speakers only. Therefore, you cannot adjust the level of the effect speakers while listening to such a source.
I Notes on playing DTS-CD/LDs
In this mode, the input signal is selected automatically as follows: 1) Digital signal 2) Analog signal DTS: In this mode, only digital input signals encoded with DTS are selected, even if the unit is receiving another signal simultaneously. ANALOG: In this mode, only analog input signals are selected, even the unit is receiving digital signals at the same time.
When AUTO is selected, this unit automatically determines the type of signal. If it detects a Dolby Digital or DTS signal, the decoder automatically switches to the appropriate setting. When playing a disc encoded with Dolby Digital or DTS on some LD or DVD players, there is a delay in sound output for a moment when playback resumes after a search, because the unit must select the digital signal again. When playing a LD source that has not been digitally recorded, the unit may not output any sound for some LD players. In this case, set the input mode to ANALOG.
If the digital output data of the player has been processed in any way, the unit may not be able to perform DTS decoding even if there is a digital connection between this unit and the player. If you play a source encoded with a DTS signal and set the input mode to ANALOG, the unit may reproduce the noise of an unprocessed DTS signal. In this case, connect the source to a digital input jack on this unit and set the input mode to AUTO or DTS. If you switch the input mode to ANALOG while playing a source encoded with a DTS signal, the unit does not output any sound. If you play a source encoded with a DTS signal with the input mode set to AUTO; The unit automatically switches to the DTSdecoding mode (The t indicator lights up) after detecting the DTS signal. When playback of the DTS source is completed, the t indicator may flash. While this indicator is flashing, the unit can only reproduce DTS source. If you want to play a normal PCM source immediately, change the input mode back to AUTO. When the input mode is set to AUTO and a search or skip operation is performed during playback of a DTS source, the t indicator may flash. If this state continues for longer than 30 seconds, the unit will automatically switch from DTS-decoding mode to PCM digital signal input mode. The t indicator will turn off.

I SILENT CINEMA
YAMAHA has developed a natural, realistic sound effect DSP algorithm for headphones. Parameters for headphones have been set for each sound field so that accurate representations of all the sound field programs can be enjoyed using headphones.
YAMAHA has developed a virtual CINEMA DSP algorithm that allows you to enjoy DSP sound field surround effects even without any rear speakers by using virtual rear speakers. It is even possible to enjoy virtual CINEMA DSP using a minimal 2-speaker system that does not include a center speaker.
I S-video signal
With the S-video signal system, the video signal normally transmitted using a pin cable is separated and transmitted as the Y signal for the luminance and the C signal for the chrominance through the S-video cable. Using the S VIDEO jack eliminates video signal transmission loss and allows recording and playback of even more beautiful images.
I PCM (Linear PCM)
Linear PCM is a signal format under which an analog audio signal is digitized, recorded and transmitted without using any compression. This is used as a method of recording CDs and DVD audio. The PCM system uses a technique for sampling the size of the analog signal per very small unit of time. Standing for pulse code modulation, the analog signal is encoded as pulses and then modulated for recording.
I Component video signal
I Sampling frequency and number of quantized bits
When digitizing an analog audio signal, the number of times the signal is sampled per second is called the sampling frequency, while the degree of fineness when converting the sound level into a numeric value is called the number of quantized bits. The range of rates that can be played back is determined based on the sampling rate, while the dynamic range representing the sound level difference is determined by the number of quantized bits. In principle, the higher the sampling frequency, the wider the range of frequencies that can be played back, and the higher the number of quantized bits, the more finely the sound level can be reproduced.
With the component video signal system, the video signal is separated into the Y signal for the luminance and the PB and PR signals for the chrominance. Color can be reproduced more faithfully with this system because each of these signals is independent. The component signal is also called the color difference signal because the luminance signal is subtracted from the color signal. A monitor with component input jacks is required in order to use the component signal for output.

Digital ToP-ART Digital ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology) is the name Yamaha has given to a design philosophy whose goal is to maximize digital quality while minimizing analog circuitry. The culmination of the best digital engineering and design possible today, it brings together several key elements to create the best-sounding, easiest-to-use A/V components available Advanced Decoding Circuitry Including Yamahas Exclusive YSS-938 32-Bit Floating Point Quantization LSI The decoding circuitry performs Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital EX, DTS Digital Surround, DTS-ES (DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 Yamahas Exclusive and DTS-ES YSS-938 32-Bit Floating Discrete 6.1), and Point Quantization LSI
DTS Neo:6 decoding with extreme accuracy, as well as all digital sound field processing. It also outperforms other systems in the precise synchronization of images and sound. Its low 3V power consumption minimizes digital noise. 96kHz/24-Bit DACs for All Channels The RX-V540s vitally important digital-toanalog converters use an extremely 96kHz/24-bit high performance. They perform accurate sound field reproduction for high quality multichannel sources, and for two-channel stereo, provide outstanding separation and precise musical delineation. They deliver superior low level linearity with excellent full-scale performance under varying operation conditions. 4-Layer DSP Processing Board All of the DSP IC chips and related circuitry are located together on a 4-layer board. This is the first time a 4-layer board has been used, and it provides a number of advantages. The dimensions are smaller (2/3 previous types), so signal paths are shorter and there is more

space for the large power supply components. Digital interference is reduced and impedance is lower as well. 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 analog design in conjunction with an ultra-precise digital control circuit. 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.
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 Pro-Logic 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 In this format, the back surround channel is matrix encoded into the left and right surround channels. For playback, the three channels are separately decoded. 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.
High Current Amplification Achieves Low Impedance/ High Current Power from Input to Output.
The Importance of High Current Although power rating is often the first thing customers look at in a receiver, high power output does not necessarily mean good sound. High current level is a much more important factor. Yamaha receivers has always had fairly high current levels, but with the RX-V540, we have further improved this performance. What It Does In brief, Yamaha High Current Amplification achieves low impedance, high current power from input (power supply circuit) to output (speaker terminals). This drives the speakers much more smoothly and dynamically, for better sound from all sources, including 2-channel audio. Specific Improvements The first problem to be overcome was the difference in voltage that ordinary receivers suffer between the power supply and amplifier circuits, caused by current fluctuations. This was solved by
using custom-made, high-grade block electrolytic capacitors and a copper grip for one-point grounding. Another current drop is generally seen between the amplifier circuit and the speaker terminals, caused by the cables, speaker output relays, copper circuit boards, and so on. To increase current here, we used an extra-large, lowimpedance transformer and gold-plated speaker relay contacts. 6-Channel High Power, Discrete Amplifier Configuration The RX-V540 will deliver as much as 100W of power to each of six channels (two main, two rear, one center and one rear center). This is more than enough to fill even the largest rooms with vibrant music and Richter-scale sound effects. 6-4 mixdown is also provided, for enjoying 6-channel input sources from four or five speakers you already have on hand with or without a subwoofer.
High Dynamic Power Capability The RX-V540 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 (Main L/R Channels) 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 ToP-ART Base Supporting the heavy heat sinks and circuit board is Yamahas ToP-ART base, which has exceptional antiresonance and damping
High Current Amplification Principle
The voltage (A) of Block Electrolytic Capacitors and voltage (B) of Power Transistor Collector should be ideally at the same level. However, when the current become large, there will be a big difference in the level of each voltages. There is also a level difference between Output of the Power Amplifier (C) and Speaker Terminals (D), which is reflected by coppers of PCB, Speaker out put relays, cables and so on, resulting damaging the sound quality.

characteristics. Beneath this base is the bottom of power amplifier, part of the heavy chassis which is also designed for maximum vibration damping. Wide-Range Frequency Response for DVD-Audio and SACD With an extremely wide frequency range of 10 to 100,000Hz, this receiver 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. For example, the tone control circuit layout is straighter and shorter than ever. 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 receivers. As a result, many were replaced with more expensive or custom-designed units. Extra-Large Custom-Made Block Electrolytic Capacitors Developed specifically for the RX-V540, the 10,000F block electrolytic capacitors use low-magnification foil and are exceptionally high quality. 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 Myca Capacitors and Film Capacitors At this level of sound quality, even these small parts make a difference. The high precision FE mica and metallic mylar film capacitors use polypropylene material and are the highest performance types on the market. Extra-Large Low-Impedance Transformer The large 4.2 kg low-impedance transformer is an important factor in the RX-V540s extremely stable power supply. Thick PC Board Wiring with 1.6mm (5/8) Copper Jumper Cables The audio signal is routed within the amplifier through exceptionally thick, top quality wire, ensuring that signal purity is maintained.

No Other Surround Sound System Can Match for Rich, Detailed, Realistic Sound.
Going Beyond Conventional MultiChannel Systems 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), rear and rear sound fields, you will hear sound with highly accurate localization, smooth movement, exceptional clarity and richness, and startlingly realistic presence. It will seem as if the walls of your room have disappeared and you are in the middle of your own immense theater!
Quad-Field and Tri-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. CINEMA DSP Programs One of the main advantages of CINEMA DSP is the large choice of sound field programs available. The basic program for movies is Enhanced, which greatly improves the sound of the surround fields. The "largest" of these sound
fields is Spectacle, which recreates the open feeling of large-scale, epic motion pictures. The Sci-Fi is designed to reproduce all the complex, dynamic sounds of space/science fiction movies. Adventure and General are also included. Center Graphic Equalizer In addition to the many audio parameters that can be adjusted, the RX-V540 provides an even greater degree of sound field control with the inclusion of a Center Graphic Equalizer. This lets you finely tune the overall balance of the sound field to achieve the optimal imaging for movie sound.
