SOUND FIELD PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS
This unit is equipped with a variety of precise digital decoders that allow you to enjoy multichannel playback from
almost any sound source (stereo or multichannel). This unit is also equipped with a Yamaha digital sound field
processing (DSP) chip containing several sound field programs which you can use to enhance your playback experience.
Most of these sound field programs are precise digital recreations of actual acoustic environments found in famous
concert halls, music venues, and movie theaters.
The Yamaha CINEMA DSP modes are compatible with all Dolby Digital, DTS, and Dolby Surround sources. Set INPUT MODE to
AUTO (see page 34) to enable this unit to automatically switch to the appropriate digital decoder according to the input signal.
You can select from the following sound fields when playing movie or video sources. The sound fields marked “MULTI”
can be used with multi-channel sources, like DVD, digital TV, etc. Those marked “
” can be used with 2-channel
(stereo) sources like TV programs, video tapes, etc.
SOUND FIELD PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS
For movie/video sources
Downmixes multi-channel sources to 2 (left and right) channels or plays back 2-channel
sources as is.
CINEMA DSP processing. 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).
CINEMA DSP processing. This program clearly reproduces dialog and sound effects in the
latest sound form for science fiction films, thus creating a broad and expansive cinematic space
amid 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
CINEMA DSP processing. 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.
CINEMA DSP processing. This program is for reproducing sounds from 70-mm and
multichannel soundtrack films, and is characterized by 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.
THX processing for any multi-channel sources.
