Basic Operation

DENON original surround modes

• The AVR-4806 is equipped with a high performance DSP (Digital Signal Processor) which uses digital signal processing to

synthetically recreate the sound field. One of nine preset surround modes can be selected according to the program source and
the parameters can be adjusted according to the conditions in the listening room to achieve a more realistic, powerful sound.

Personal Memory Plus

This set is equipped with a personal memorize function that automatically memorizes the surround modes and input modes
selected for the input different sources. When the input source is switched, the modes set for that source last time it was
used are automatically recalled.

The surround parameters, tone control settings and playback level balance for the different output channels are memorized for
each surround mode.

7CH STEREO

Select this when watching baseball or soccer programs to achieve a sound as if you were actually at
the stadium. This mode provides the longest reverberation signals.

Use this mode to achieve the feeling of a live concert in an arena with reflected sounds coming from
all directions.

This mode creates the sound field of a live house with a low ceiling and hard walls. This mode gives
jazz a very vivid realism.

Select this for the sound of a concert hall rich in reverberations.

Select this when watching monaural movies for a greater sense of expansion.

Use this to enjoy video game sources.

Select this to achieve an atmosphere like that of a movie theater with a large screen. In this mode,
all signal sources are played in the 7.1-channel mode, including Dolby Surround and Dolby Digital 5.1-
channel sources. Effects simulating the multi surround speakers of movie theaters are added to the
surround channels.

The front left channel signals are output to the surround and surround back signal left channels, the
front right channel signals are output to the surround and surround back signal right channels, and the
in-phase component of the left and right channels is output to the center channel. Use this mode to
enjoy stereo sound.

MATRIX

Select this to emphasize the sense of expansion for music sources recorded in stereo. Signals
consisting of the difference component of the input signals (the component that provides the sense
of expansion) processed for delay are output from the surround channel.

Depending on the program source being played, the effect may not be very noticeable. 
In this case, try other surround modes, without worrying about their names, to create a sound field suited to your tastes.

NOTE:

When playing sources recorded in monaural, the sound will be one-sided if signals are only input to one channel (left
or right), so input signals to both channels. If you have a source component with only one audio output (monophonic
camcorder, etc.) obtain a “Y” adaptor cable to split the mono output to two outputs, and connect to the L and R inputs.
