NOTES : - - Assignment of low frequency signal range - - • The signals produced from the subwoofer channel are LFE signals ( during playback of Dolby Digital or DTS signals ) and the low frequency signal range of channels set to " SMALL " in the setup . The low frequency signal range of channels set to " LARGE " are produced from those channels . i Crossover Frequency i • When " Subwoofer " is set to " Yes " at the " Speaker Configuration Setting " , set the frequency ( Hz ) below which the bass sound of the various speakers is to be output from the subwoofer ( the crossover frequency ) . • For speakers set to " Small " , sound with a frequency below the crossover frequency is cut , and the cut bass sound is output from the subwoofer instead . NOTE : For ordinary speaker systems , we recommend setting the crossover frequency to 80 Hz . When using small speakers , however , setting the crossover frequency to a high frequency may improve frequency response for frequencies near the crossover frequency . - - Subwoofer mode - - • The subwoofer mode setting is only valid when " LARGE " is set for the front speakers and " YES " is set for the subwoofer in the " Speaker Configuration " settings ( see pages 20 , 21 ) . If " SMALL " is set for the front speakers or " NO " is set for the subwoofer , the subwoofer mode setting does not affect playback of low frequency signal range . • When the " + MAIN " playback mode is selected , the low frequency signal range of channels set to " LARGE " are produced simultaneously from those channels and the subwoofer channel . In this playback mode , the low frequency range expand more uniformly through the room , but depending on the size and shape of the room , interference may result in a decrease of the actual volume of the low frequency range . • When the " NORM " playback mode is selected , the low frequency signal range of channels set to " LARGE " are only produced from those channels . In this playback mode there tends to be little interference of the low frequency range in the room . • Try playing the music or movie source and select the playback mode providing the stronger low frequency range sound . 22

I ' _ DSP SURROUND SIMULATION • This unit is equipped with a high performance DSP ( Digital Signal Processor ) which uses digital signal processing to synthetically recreate the sound field . One of 7 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 . These surround modes can also be used for program sources not recorded in Dolby Surround Pro Logic , Dolby Digital or DTS . In this mode , the signals of the front left channel are output from the left surround channel , the signals of the front 1 5CH / 6CH right channel are output from the right surround channel , and the same ( in - phase ) component of the left and rightl STEREO channels is output from the center channel . This mode provides all speaker surround sound , but without directiona steering effects , and works with any stereo program source . 2 MONO MOVIE Select this when watching monaural movies for a greater sense of expansion . ( NOTE 1 ) 3 ROCK ARENA 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 4 JAZZ CLUB vivid realism . 5 VIDEO GAME Use this to enjoy video game sources . Select this to emphasize the sense of expansion for music sources recorded in stereo . Signals consisting of the 6 MATRIX difference component of the input signals ( the component that provides the sense of expansion ) processed for delay are output from the surround channel . 7 VIRTUAL Select this mode to enjoy a virtual sound field , produced from the front 2 - channel speakers or headphones . • _ 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 1 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 " adapter cable to split the mono output to two outputs , and connect to the L and R inputs . NOTE : DIRECT , STEREO and 5CH / 6CH STEREO mode can be used when playing PCM signals with a sampling frequency of 96 kHz ( such as from DVD - Video discs that contain 24 bit , 96 kHz audio ) . If such signals are input during playback in the other surround modes , the mode automatically switches to STEREO . 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 . 48

r { - 9 ] ADDITIONAL INFORMATION There are currently various types of multi - channel signals ( signals or formats with more than two channels ) . • Types of multi - channel signals Dolby Digital , Dolby Pro Logic , DTS , high definition 3 - 1 signals ( Japan MUSE Hi - Vision audio ) , DVD - Audio , SACD ( Super Audio CD ) , MPEG multi - channel audio , etc . " Source " here does not refer to the type of signal ( format ) but the recorded content . Sources can be divided into two major categories . • Types of sources • Movie audio Signals created to be played in movie theaters . In general sound is recorded to be played in movie theaters equipped with multiple surround speakers , regardless of the format ( Dolby Digital , DTS , etc . ) . Movie theater sound field D _ D D Listening room sound field - - - - r _ SLll liSR Fq _ r _ q [ ] In this case it is important to achieve the same sense of n expansion as in a movie theater with the surround channels .

B . . . . . , Multiple surround speakers ( For 6.1 - channel system ) • Other types of audio These signals are designed to recreate a 360 ° sound field using three to five speakers . [ ] In this case the speakers should surround the listener from all sides to create a uniform sound field from 360 ° . Ideally the surround speakers should function as " point " sound sources in the same way as the front speakers . SL SR These two types of sources thus have different properties , and different speaker settings , particularly for the surround speakers , are required in order to achieve the ideal sound . 57

A 6.1 - channel system is a conventional 5.1 - channel system to which the " surround back " ( SB ) channel has been added . This makes it easy to achieve sound positioned directly behind the listener something that was previously difficult with sources designed for conventional multi surround speakers . In addition , the acoustic image extending between the sides and the rear is narrowed , thus greatly improving the expression of the surround signals for sounds moving from the sides to the back and from the front to the point directly behind the listening position . Change of positioning and acoustic image Change of positioning and acoustic image with 5.1 - channel systems with 6.1 - channel systems Fq _ D [ ] Fq _ r _ q [ ] x \ / / / / / \ \ / / \ \ \ / 1 D D i I I I D D = SLL ch , , \ \ \ \ D D x !

Movement of acoustic image from SR to SL Movement of acoustic image from SR to SB to SL With this set , speaker ( s ) for 1 or 2 channels are required to achieve a 6.1 - channel system ( DTS - ES , etc . ) . Adding these speakers , however , increases the surround effect not only with sources recorded in 6.1 channels but also with conventional 2 - to 5.1 - channel sources . All the Denon original surround modes ( see page 48 ) are compatible with 7.1 - channel playback , so you can enjoy 6.1 - channel sound with any signal source . • Number of surround back speakers Though the surround back channel only consists of 1 channel of playback signals for 6.1 - channel sources ( DTS - ES , etc . ) , we recommend using two speakers . When using speakers with dipolar characteristics in particular , it is essential to use two speakers . Using two speakers results in a smoother blend with the sound of the surround channels and better sound positioning of the surround back channel when listening from a position other than the center . • Placement of the surround left and right channels when using surround back speakers Using surround back speakers greatly improves the positioning of the sound at the rear . Because of this , the surround left and right channels play an important role in achieving a smooth transition of the acoustic image from the front to the back . As shown on the diagram above , in a movie theater the surround signals are also produced from diagonally in front of the listeners , creating an acoustic image as if the sound were floating in space . To achieve these effects , we recommend placing the speakers for the surround left and right channels slightly more towards the front than with conventional surround systems . Doing so sometimes increases the surround effect when playing conventional 5.1 - channel sources in the 6.1 surround or DTS - ES Matrix 6.1 mode . Check the surround effects of the various modes before selecting the surround mode . 58

Here we describe a number of speaker settings for different purposes . Use these examples as guides to set up your system according to the type of speakers used and the main usage purpose . 1 . DTS - ES compatible system ( using surround back speakers ) ( 1 ) Basic setting for primarily watching movies * Set the front speakers with their front surfaces as flush with the TV Front speakers or monitor screen as possible . Set the center speaker between the Surround speaker Surround back Center speaker front left and right speakers and no further from the listening position " _ n speaker Point sLightLy than the front speakers . Front speaker Ul downwards . Consult the owner's manual for your subwoofer for advice on placing the subwoofer within the listening room . 60 to 90 cm . If the surround speakers are direct - radiating ( monopolar ) then place them slightly behind and at an angle to the listening position and parallel to the walls at a position 60 to 90 centimeters ( 2 to 3 feet ) above ear level at the prime listening position . As seen from the side * When using two surround back speakers , place them at the back facing the front at a narrower distance than the front left and right speakers . When using one surround back speaker , place it at the rear center facing the front at a slightly higher position ( 0 to 20 cm ) than the surround speakers . We recommend installing the surround back speaker ( s ) at a slightly downward facing angle . This effectively prevents the surround back channel signals from reflecting off the monitor or screen at the front center , resulting in interference and making the sense of movement from the front to the back less sharp . Surround back speakers ( 1 spkr or 2 spkrs ) As seen from above ( 2 ) Setting for primarily watching movies using diffusion type speakers for the surround speakers For the greatest sense of surround sound envelopment , diffuse radiation speakers such as bipolar types , or dipolar types , provide a wider dispersion than is possible to obtain from a direct radiating speaker ( monopolar ) . Place these speakers at either side of the prime listening position , mounted above ear level . Path of the surround sound from the speakers to the listening position • Set the front speakers , center speaker and subwoofer in the same positions as in example ( 1 ) . Surround speaker Surround back It is best to place the surround speakers directly at the side or slightly _ speak Point sLightLy to the front of the viewing position , and 60 to 90 cm above the ears .

F _ speaker _ D _ _ \ d . . . . . . . ds Using dipolar speakers for the surround back speakers as well is more effective . 60 to 90 cm Connect the surround speakers to the surround speaker jacks . The signals from the surround channels reflect off the walls as shown on the diagram at the left , creating an enveloping and realistic As seen from the side surround sound presentation . For multi - channel music sources however , the use of bipolar or dipolar speakers mounted at the sides of the listening position may not be satisfactory in order to create a coherent 360 degree surround sound field . Connect another pair of direct radiating speakers as described in example ( 3 ) and place them at the rear corners of the room facing towards the prime listening position . Surround back speakers ( 1 spkr or 2 spkrs ) As seen from above 2 . When not using surround back speakers • Set the front speakers with their front surfaces as flush with the TV or Front speakers monitor screen as possible . Set the center speaker between the front left Centerspeaker and right speakers and no further from the listening position than the front speakers . • Consult the owner's manual for your subwoofer for advice on placing the subwoofer within the listening room . • If the surround speakers are direct - radiating ( monopolar ) then place them 60 to 90 cm slightly behind and at an angle to the listening position and parallel to the walls at a position 60 to 90 centimeters ( 2 to 3 feet ) above ear level at the prime listening position .

The AVR - 1803 / 883 is equipped with a digital signal processing circuit that lets you play program sources in the surround mode to achieve the same sense of presence as in a movie theater . Dolby Surround ( 1 ) Dolby Digital Dolby Digital is the multi - channel digital signal format developed by Dolby Laboratories . Dolby Digital consists of up to " 5.1 " channels - front left , front right , center , surround left , surround right , and an additional channel exclusively reserved for additional deep bass sound effects ( the Low Frequency Effects - LFE - channel , also called the " . 1 " channel , containing bass frequencies of up to 120 Hz ) . Unlike the analog Dolby Pro Logic format , Dolby Digital's main channels can all contain full range sound information , from the lowest bass , up to the highest frequencies - 22 kHz . The signals within each channel are distinct from the others , allowing pinpoint sound imaging , and Dolby Digital offers tremendous dynamic range from the most powerful sound effects to the quietest , softest sounds , free from noise and distortion . • Dolby Digital and Dolby Pro Logic Comparison of home surround systems Dolby Digitat Dolby Pro Logic No . recorded channels ( elements ) 5.1 ch 2 ch No . playback channels 5.1 ch 4 ch Playback channels ( max . ) L , R , C , SL , SR , SW L , R , C , S ( SW - recommended ) Digital discrete processingecoding Audio processing Dolby Digitat encoding / d Anatog matrix processing Dolby Surround High frequency pIayback limit of surround 20 kHz 7 kHz channel • Dolby Digital compatible media and playback methods Marks indicating Dolby Digital compatibility : r _ r _ r _ - _ .

When playing in Dolby Digital surround on the AVR - 1803 / 883 , switch the DVD player's output mode to " bit stream " . In some cases players are equipped with both " bit stream + PCM " and " PCM only " digital outputs . In this case connect the " bit stream + PCM " jacks to the AVR - 1803 / 883 . ( 2 ) Dolby Pro Logic II • Dolby Pro - Logic [ 1 is a new multi - channel playback format developed by Dolby Laboratories using feedback logic steering technology and offering improvements over conventional Dolby Pro Logic circuits . • Dolby Pro Logic [ 1can be used to decode not only sources recorded in Dolby Surround ( ' _ ) but also regular stereo sources into five channels ( front left , front right , center , surround left and surround right ) to achieve surround sound . • Whereas with conventional Dolby Pro Logic the surround channel playback frequency band was limited , Dolby Pro Logic [ 1 offers a wider band range ( 20 Hz to 20 kHz or greater ) . In addition , the surround channels were monaural ( the surround left and right channels were the same ) with previous Dolby Pro Logic , but Dolby Pro Logic [ 1 they are played as stereo signals . • Various parameters can be set according to the type of source and the contents , so it is possible to achieve optimum decoding ( see page 42 ) . Sources recorded in Dolby Surround These are sources in which three or more channels of surround have been recorded as two channels of signals using Dolby Surround encoding technology . Dolby Surround is used for the sound tracks of movies recorded on DVDs , LDs and video cassettes to be played on stereo VCRs , as well as for the stereo broadcast signals of FM radio , TV , satellite broadcasts and cable TV . Decoding these signals with Dolby Pro Logic makes it possible to achieve multi - channel surround playback . The signals can also be played on ordinary stereo equipment , in which case they provide normal stereo sound . 60
