DTS is a digital sound system introduced in theaters . Playback of DVD , LD , and CD recorded in DTS audio creates the environment of a theater or the sensation of a concert hall in your home . No need to worry about program formats ! When playing Dolby Digital or Dolby Surround software in the Or ] ( Dolby ) Surround mode , decoding switches automatically according to the input signal . All you have to do is sit back and enjoy ! ( When connecting a DVD / LD player or LD player using the Or ] RF output , a commercially available RF demodulator ( RFD - 1 ) is required . ) Four sound modes that enhance DTS and Dolby Surround performance by simulating the environment of a movie theater ( DRAMA , ACTION ) , or the ambience of a concert hall ( MUSICAL ) . With EXPANDED THEATER , you can enjoy Dolby Surround encoded software in simulated Dolby Digital . The DSP ( Digital Signal Processing ) surround mode allows you to transform your living room into six different sonic environments when listening to music or watching movies . When late night hours or other factors require that the volume be kept low , the surround effects may tend to become less than satisfactory . When the midnight listening mode is on , you can enjoy the effects of quality surround sound even at low volumes . A special 5.1 Channel input makes the VSX - D409 / D509S fully compatible with Dolby Digital decoders and DVD players with 5.1 channel outputs . This unit is designed to use minimal electricity when power is switched OFF ( in Standby mode ) . Regarding the value of the power consumption in standby mode , refer to " Specifications " on page 58 . The supplied remote control can be used to operate a variety of other components simply by recalling the appropriate preset code . In addition , the multi - operation functions allow you to perform a variety of operations automatically . * Manufactured under ficense from Digital Theater Systems , Inc . US Pat .

Connecting Speakers A full complement of six speakers is shown here but , naturally , everyone's home setup will vary . Simply connect the speakers you have in the manner described below . The receiver will work with just two stereo speakers ( called " front " speakers in the diagram ) but it is recommended to be used with at least three speakers . Make sure you connect the speaker on the right to the right terminal and the speaker on the left to the left terminal . Also make sure the positive and negative ( + _ ) terminals on the receiver match those on the speakers . The receiver has two speaker systems , A & B . A is the main system supporting the full complement of surround sound speakers . If you switch on both A & B speaker systems , only front speakers and the sub - woofer will be audible . No sound will come from the center or surround speakers but multi channel sources will be down mixed to the active speakers so no sound will be lost . Similarly , if you choose just the B system you'll only hear the front speakers connected to the B system and multi channel sources will be down mixed to these two speakers .

Sets whether the SUB WOOFER is used or not . A { so , when used you have the option to use the " PLUS " setting . • Initial setting is " ON " . • Setting the front speaker size to " Small " in the SPEAKERS setting mode automatically locks the sub woofer in the " ON " position . • Use the PLUS for extra bass . When you use PLUS you will get the bass sounds from the sub woofer even if the front speakers are set to " Large " . Press A or V to select sub woofer ON , PLUS or OFF . Crossover frequency is the point where the receiver divides the high and low sounds ( the frequencies ) between the speakers . Since most smaller speakers can't handle deep bass tones , this setting allows you to send those sounds to the sub woofer ( or speakers set to " Large " if you don't have a sub woofer ) instead of the speakers set to " Small " in your system . Choose the point at which you want the frequency routed to the sub woofer ( or " Large " speakers ) . We recommend setting this to 200 Hz if smaller bookshelf type speakers are used for your " SmaIV ' speakers . • Initial setting is " 100 Hz " . • If all speakers ( front , center , and surround ) are setto " Large " in SPEAKERS setting mode , crossover frequency cannot be set because there are no " Small " speakers ( * * * appears in the display ) . Press A or v to specify the crossover frequency ER I [ JO for your small speakers ( 100 Hz , 150 Hz or 200 Hz ) . 100 Hz Sends bass frequencies below 100 Hz to the sub woofer ( or " Large " [ - - I _ 100Hz _ I _ 150Hz _ speakers ) . _ 200Hz _ 150 Hz Sends bass frequencies below 150 Hz to the sub woofer ( or " Large " speakers ) . 200 Hz Sends bass frequencies below 200 Hz to the sub woofer ( or " Large " speakers ) . Dolby Digital and DTS audio sources include ultra low bass tones .

Dynamic range is the difference between the loudest and softest sounds in any given signal . The dynamic range control helps you play back sounds so the quieter sounds are audible yet the louder sounds don't get distorted . It does this by compressing the dynamic range . When watching a movie at low volume , setting this function enables low level sounds to be heard more easily but you won't be jolted by Iounder sounds . • Initial setting is " OFF " . • When the volume level is increased , set to OFR • For listening enjoyment at low volumes , set to " MAX " for maximum dynamic range compression . • Dynamic range control is effective only when a Dolby Digital signal is being played back . _ RE OF F _ J The dual mono setting can only be used when listening to Dolby Digital discs that have dud mono software encoded in them . With this setting you can choose which channel in the dual mono setting you want to listen to . Thus , it is useful for soundtracks that have one language on one channel and a different language on the other . Remember you can only use this setting if you have Dolbly Digital software with this feature and want to isolate one of the channels therein . Otherwise , just ignore this function . There are two different ways to route the sound in the dual mono setting , one is with Dolby Digital mode on , the other with Dolby Digital mode off . If Dolby Digital mode is switched on , the chl setting will play channel 1 through your center speaker . The ch2 setting will play channel 2 though your center speaker and the MIX setting will play both channels through the center speaker . With Dolby Digital mode off , the dual mono sound routing is as follows : In the chl setting your will hear channel 1 out of both front speakers . In the ch2 setting you will hear channel 2 out of both speakers . In the L . cl R . c2 setting the speakers will play the soundtrack independently of each other . The left front speker will play channel 1 and the right front speaker will play channel 2 . The last setting , MIX , mixes both channels and plays them out of both speakers . • The default setting of this feature is L C 1R C 2 .

Lear ng about the Sound Modes The sound modes are explained here . There are two cinema modes : STANDARD , and ADVANCED THEATER . These are designed to be used with multi channel surround sound audio / visual sources ( like DVDs and LDs ) . Intrinsic to home theater , these modes can deliver realistic and powerful surround sound that recreates the movie theater experience . You may need to experiment with them to see which settings suit your home system and personal tastes . The DSP and STEREO modes are designed to be used with music sources but some DSP modes are also suited for film soundtracks . Again , try different settings with various soundtracks to see which you like . This mode is for pure decoding of Dolby Digital , DTS and Dolby Surround . No special effects are added . It is good for enjoying movies that have been recorded in Dolby Digital , DTS or Dolby Surround . You can identify Dolby Digital software by the uuW ) or Bl _ , _ marks . Most Dolby Surround software is marked I : la _ , but unmarked software may also incorporate Dolby Surround . MUSICAL Simulates the acoustic environment of a large concert hall and is suitable for music or musical sources marked up , _ ( 01 _ ) or _ . lu = = au . _ DRAMA Simulates the relaxed environment of a classic medium size movie theater , and is suitable for watching dramas on sources marked _ , _ ( _ . . , , . . . . ) . _ _ _ . , . . . iTl [ _ ] or _ . . . . . ACTION Simulates the acoustic environment of a modern large movie theater . You can enjoy the power and dynamics of motion picture audio which is suitable for action movies on sources marked # D , _ , w = _ uuN _ EXPANDED This mode is especially designed to give sound depth to stereo sources . The overall effect builds a dynamic and broad sound space , allowing two channel ( stereo ) signals to faithfully imitate a five speaker sound . Use with Dolby Pro Logic for a stereo surround effect . You can ado use with Dolby Digital sources for a wider stereo field than STANDARD mode . The DSP ( Digital Signal Processing ) modes allow you to transform your living room into a variety of different sonic environments when playing standard ( two - channel ) stereo sources , Dolby Pro Logic sources , and Dolby Digital sources . If you try to add this effect to functions which can not use it " SP off " flashes in the display . HALL 1 Simulates the acoustic environment of a large concert hall of wooden construction . Complex delay of reflected sounds coupled with reverberation effects create a dynamic and beautiful sound characteristic of an orchestra performing in a concert hall , making it suitable for classical music HALL 2 Simulates the acoustic environment of a concert hall with stone walls . The rich reverberations and natural fullness of the sound create the auditory impression of being in a concert hall , making it suitable for classical music . JAZZ Simulates the acoustic environment of a jazz club . Less delay on the reflected sounds emphasizes the sensation of hearing a live band . DANCE Simulates the acoustic environment and strong bass sound of a nightclub with a square dance floor . A short delay on the reflected sounds emulates the raw power of the dance music . THEATER 1 Adjusts the delay of the reflected sound to simulate the acoustic environment of a medium sized movie theater . THEATER 2 Simulates the acoustic environment of a theater while maintaining proper localization of each channel . 36
