3D HEADPHONE mode, About other digital signals

DTS 96/24
In recent years, there has been increasing interest in higher
sampling rates both for recording and for reproducing at home.
Higher sampling rates allow wider frequency range and greater bit
depths provide extended dynamic range.
DTS 96/24 is a multi-channel digital signal format (fs 96 kHz/24
bits) introduced by Digital Theater Systems, Inc. to deliver “better-
than-CD sound quality” into the home.
• When DTS 96/24 signal is detected, the DTS and 96/24
indicators light up. You can enjoy its 5.1-channel sound with full-
DTS Neo:6
DTS Neo:6 is another conversion method to create 6-channel
(plus subwoofer) from analog/digital 2-channel software by using
the high precision digital matrix decoder used for DTS-ES Matrix
• This receiver provides the following DTS Neo:6 modes—Neo:6
Cinema (NEO:6CINEMA) and Neo:6 Music (NEO:6 MUSIC).
When one of them is activated, the NEO:6 indicator lights up on
the display.
NEO:6CINEMA Suitable for playing movies. You can get the
same atmosphere with 2-channel software as
with 6.1-channel software. It is also effective for
playing software encoded with conventional
surround formats.
Suitable for playing music software. The front
channel signals bypass the decoder (resulting in
no loss of sound quality) and the surround
signals transmitted through the other speakers
expand the sound field naturally.
When using Surround mode, the sounds come out of the
activated speakers which the Surround mode requires.
• If either the surround speakers or center speaker is set to
“NO” in the speaker setting (see page 21), the corresponding
channel signals are allocated to and emitted through the front
• If both the surround speakers and center speaker are set to
“NO” in the speaker setting (see page 21), JVC’s original 3D-
PHONIC processing (which has been developed to create the
surround effect through the front speakers only) is used. The 3D
indicator lights up on the display.
If you connect a pair of headphones while one of the Surround
modes is in use, the 3D HEADPHONE mode is activated
without respect to the type of software played back.
“3DHEADPHONE” appears on the display and the DSP, 3D,
and HP indicators light up.
About other digital signals
Linear PCM
Uncompressed digital audio data used for DVDs, CDs, and
Video CDs.
DVDs support 2 channels with sampling rates of 48/96 kHz, at
quantization of 16/20/24 bits. On the other hand, CDs and
Video CDs are limited to 2 channels with 44.1 kHz at 16 bits.
• When Linear PCM signal is detected, the LPCM indicator
lights up.
Dual Mono
Dual Mono can be easily understood when you think of the
bilingual broadcast for TV programs (however, the Dual Mono
format is not identical with those analog formats).
This format is now adopted in Dolby Digital, DTS, and so on. It
allows two independent channels (called main channel and
sub-channel) to be recorded separately.
• You can select either channel you want to listen to (see
page 23).
