The MUSIC listening modes

These modes are specifically designed for listening to
music. The basic modes provide pure decoding of
multichannel sources, and will create surround channels
for two channel sources. The advanced effect modes
have been created give you different kinds of surround
sound environments when listening to any source.
Basic modes
With multichannel sources
(such as DVDs and digital
satellite broadcasts), the
2
DIGITAL
or
DTS
indicator on
the front panel lights depending on the source format.
With two channel sources
, select from:
2
Pro Logic IIx MUSIC
– Up to 7.1 channel sound,
especially suited to music sources
NEO:6 MUSIC
– 6.1 channel sound, especially suited
to music sources
With multichannel sources, if you have connected
surround back speaker(s) and have selected
SB CH MODE
ON
, you can select (according to format):
Dolby Digital EX
– Creates surround back channel
sound for Dolby 5.1 channel sources and provides
pure decoding for 6.1 channel sources (like Dolby
Digital Surround EX)
2

DTS+Neo:6

for DTS 5.1 channel sources

Dolby Pro Logic IIx Music settings

When listening to 2-channel sources in Dolby Pro Logic
IIx Music mode, there are three further parameters you
can adjust: Center Width, Dimension, and Panorama.
1Press RECEIVER.
2With ‘
2
Pro Logic IIx MUSIC’ mode active, press
EFFECT/CH SEL repeatedly to select CENTER WIDTH,
DIMENSION or PANORAMA.
CENTER WIDTH
– Provides a better blend of the front
speakers by spreading the center channel between
the front right and left speakers, making it sound
wider (higher settings) or narrower (lower settings).
(This is only available when using a center speaker.)
DIMENSION
– Adjusts the depth of the surround
sound balance from front to back, making the sound
more distant (minus settings), or more forward
(positive settings).
PANORAMA
– Extends the front stereo image to
include the surround speakers for a ‘wraparound’
effect.
3 Use the +/– buttons to adjust the setting.
Center Width is adjustable between
0
and
7
(default :
3
);
Dimension between
–3
and
+3
(default :
0
); Panorama is
ON
or
OFF
(default :
OFF
).
4 Press EFFECT/CH SEL again to adjust other
settings.
Note
If the
SB CH MODE
is switched to
OFF
,
2
Pro Logic
IIx
(above) becomes
2
Pro Logic II
(5.1 channel
sound), however the above setting will still be
effective.
If you set the
CENTER WIDTH
to
7
, all the center
channel signal goes to your front speakers, creating
a ‘phantom’ center channel.
