Figure 24 – Surround Modes Menu
Auto Select: For digital programs, such as movies recorded with
a Dolby Digital soundtrack, the AVR will automatically use the native
surround format. For 2-channel analog and PCM programs, the AVR
uses Logic 7 Movie mode.
Virtual Surround: When only two main speakers are present
in the system, Harman Virtual Surround may be used to create an
enhanced sound field that virtualizes the missing speakers.
Stereo: When 2-channel playback is desired, select the number
of speakers used for playback:
• 2 CH STEREO uses only two speakers. As described on page 30,
you may select Analog Bypass mode for a pure analog signal when
analog audio inputs are in use. Turn off the TONE setting, and the
AVR does the rest.
• 5 CH STEREO plays the left-channel signal through the front
and surround left speakers, the right-channel signal through the
right speakers and a summed mono signal through the center
• 7 CH STEREO follows the same scheme as 5 CH STEREO, but adds
the surround back speakers. This mode is only available when the
surround back speakers are present.
Movie: Use when a surround mode is desired for movie playback:
Logic 7 Movie, DTS Neo:6 Cinema or Dolby Pro Logic II (IIx when
seven main speakers are present).
Music: Use when a surround mode is desired for music playback:
Logic 7 Music, DTS Neo:6 Music or Dolby Pro Logic II (IIx when
seven main speakers are present). The Dolby Pro Logic II/IIx Music
mode allows access to a submenu with some additional settings.
See the Advanced Functions section for more information.
Video Game: Use to select a surround mode for game playback:
Logic 7 Game, or Dolby Pro Logic II (IIx when seven main speakers
are present) Game.
After you have made your selection, use the
Buttons to move
the cursor to the BACK TO SURROUND SELECT line and press the
OK Button, then select the BACK TO MASTER MENU line and press
the OK Button to make additional adjustments. When you are
finished using the menu system, press the OSD Button to clear the
full-OSD menus from view (the semi-OSD display will appear).
