For details, see “Speaker setup parameters” below. Note Some speaker setup items may appear dimmed in the display. This means that they have been adjusted automatically due to other speaker settings or may not be adjustable. 4 Press or repeatedly to select the setting you want. The setting is entered automatically. 5 Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you have set all of the items that follow. Speaker setup parameters The initial setting is underlined. x DIST. X.X m (Front speaker distance) Initial setting: 3.0 m Lets you set the distance from your listening position to the front speakers (A). You can adjust from 1.0 meter to 7.0 meters in 0.1 meter steps. If both front speakers are not placed an equal distance from your listening position, set the distance to the closest speaker. B A A C C x DIST. X.X m (Center speaker distance) Initial setting: 3.0 m Lets you set the distance from your listening position to the center speaker. Center speaker distance should be set from a distance equal to the front speaker distance (A) to a distance 1.5 meters closer to your listening position (B). x DIST. X.X m (Surround speaker distance) Initial setting: 3.0 m Lets you set the distance from your listening position to the surround speakers. Surround speaker distance should be set from a distance equal to the front speaker distance (A) to a distance 4.5 meters closer to your listening position (C). If both surround speakers are not placed an equal distance from your listening position, set the distance to the closest speaker. Tip The receiver lets you to input the speaker position in terms of distance. However, it is not possible to set the center speaker further than the front speakers. Also, the center speaker cannot be set more than 1.5 meters closer than the front speakers. Likewise, the surround speakers cannot be set further away from the listening position than the front speakers. And they can be no more than 4.5 meters closer. This is because incorrect speaker placement is not conducive to the enjoyment of surround sound. Please note that, setting the speaker distance closer than the actual location of the speakers will cause a delay in the output of the sound from that speaker. In other words, the speaker will sound like it is further away. For example, setting the center speaker distance 1–2 meters closer than the actual speaker position will create a fairly realistic sensation of being “inside” the screen. If you cannot obtain a satisfactory surround effect because the surround speakers are too close, setting the surround speaker distance closer (shorter) than the actual distance will create a larger sound stage. Adjusting these parameter while listening to the sound often results in much better surround sound. Give it a try!

x C.ST.EX C (CINEMA STUDIO EX C) DCS Reproduces the sound characteristics of the Sony Pictures Entertainment scoring stage. This mode is ideal for watching musicals or films where orchestra music is featured in the soundtrack. About CINEMA STUDIO EX modes CINEMA STUDIO EX modes are suitable for watching motion picture DVDs (etc.), with multi channel surround effects. You can reproduce the sound characteristics of Sony Pictures Entertainment’s dubbing studio in your home. The CINEMA STUDIO EX modes consist of the following three elements. • Virtual Multi Dimension Creates 5 sets of virtual speakers from a single pair of actual surround speakers. • Screen Depth Matching Creates the sensation that the sound is coming from inside the screen like in theaters. • Cinema Studio Reverberation Reproduces the type of reverberation found in theaters. The CINEMA STUDIO EX modes integrate these three elements simultaneously. Notes • The effects provided by the virtual speakers may cause increased noise in the playback signal. • When listening with sound fields that employ the virtual speakers, you will not be able to hear any sound coming directly from the surround speakers. Selecting a sound field for music Press SOUND FIELD + or SOUND FIELD – repeatedly to select the sound field you want. The selected sound field appears in the display. Sound field Display HALL HALL JAZZ CLUB JAZZ LIVE CONCERT CONCERT GAME GAME x HALL Reproduces the acoustics of a classical concert hall. x JAZZ (JAZZ CLUB) Reproduces the acoustics of a jazz club. x CONCERT (LIVE CONCERT) Reproduces the acoustics of a 300-seat live house. x GAME Obtains maximum audio impact from video game software. To turn off the surround effect Press SOUND FIELD + or SOUND FIELD – repeatedly to select “2CH ST.” or press A.F.D. to select “A.F.D. AUTO”. Tips • The receiver lets you apply the last selected sound field to an input whenever it is selected (Sound Field Link). For example, if you select HALL for the DVD input, then change to a different input and then return to DVD, HALL will automatically be applied again. • You can identify the encoding format of DVD software, etc. by looking at the logo on the package. – : Dolby Digital discs – : Dolby Surround encoded

programs – : DTS Digital Surround encoded programs Note Sound fields do not function for the signals with a sampling frequency of more than 48 kHz. 25GB GB01COV_HTP-1200-CEL.book Page 26 Thursday, September 23, 2004 6:22 PM 26GBBy adjusting the LEVEL menu, you can customize the sound fields to suit your particular listening situation. Note on the displayed items The setup items you can adjust in each menu vary depending on the sound field. Certain setup parameters may be dimmed in the display. This means that the selected parameter is either unavailable or fixed and unchangeable. Adjusting the LEVEL menu You can adjust the balance and level of each speaker. These settings are applied to all sound fields except for the effect level parameter. The effect level parameter settings are stored individually for each sound field. 1 Start playing a source encoded with multi channel surround effects (DVD, etc.). 2 Press MAIN MENU repeatedly to select “ LEVEL ”. 3 Press or repeatedly to select the parameter you want to adjust. For details, see “LEVEL menu parameters” below. 4 While monitoring the sound, press or repeatedly to select the setting you want.

XXX dB (Sub woofer level) Initial setting: 0 dB You can adjust from –10 dB to +10 dB in 1 dB steps. x D.RANGE COMP. XXX (Dynamic range compressor) Lets you compress the dynamic range of the sound track. This may be useful when you want to watch movies at low volumes late at night. • OFF The dynamic range is not compressed. • STD The dynamic range is compressed as intended by the recording engineer. • MAX The dynamic range is compressed dramatically. Tip Dynamic range compressor lets you compress the dynamic range of the soundtrack based on the dynamic range information included in the Dolby Digital signal. We recommend using the “MAX” setting. This greatly compresses the dynamic range and lets you view movies late at night at low volumes. Unlike analog limiters, the levels are predetermined and provide a very natural compression. Note Dynamic range compression is possible with Dolby Digital sources only. x EFCT. XXX (Effect level) Initial setting: STD Lets you adjust the “presence” of the surround effect.
