I purchased the unit from a private party and the original owners manual was not available. Having the ability to download it was extremely helpful and clarified operating the equipment immensely. This is a complicated unit and without the manual I would not have been able to maximize it's potential. Thank you.
Being a user of older radios of many kinds, preferring them over more modern rigs, this manual was invaluable in the programming of my two. I now know for certain what the assorted buttons functions are, and am very grateful to have found this excellent site. Many thanks for your assistance, Tony.
Clear and easy to read. All details as expected. Price acceptable , and quick delivery.
Quick response and exactly what I was looking for and at a great fair price!
5 star quality on these downloadable manuals. Easy to read and all the information is there. A must when doing a custom install or needing to service your precious old school electronics.
MOVIE modes (SURROUND mode)
The MOVIE mode is a newly designed system for enhancing movie soundtracks and other audio-visual sources that optimizes its effects in accordance with your source, SB CH MODE and speaker configuration. The first four modes (THX CINEMA, 2PRO LOGIC II MOVIE, 2PRO LOGIC, NEO:6 CINEMA) are for pure decoding of multichannel sound sources (for example, Dolby Digital or DTS). With these modes the receiver will automatically employ the format of the sound source (for example, Dolby Digital or DTS) and display it on receiver. With two channel sources these first four modes will create surround channels. Next, there are six PIONEER original sound modes that use DSP (Digital Signal Processing) to create different types of sound environments as described below.
THX is a set of technical standards created by Lucasfilm Ltd. These standards were designed to emulate a film sound stage and thus reproduce, with the greatest possible accuracy, the soundtrack intended by the filmmakers.
2PL II MOVIE (2PRO LOGIC II MOVIE)*
This mode gives 5.1 channel surround sound. It is suitable for movies, especially those recorded in Dolby Surround. The channel separation and movement of surround effects is comparable to Dolby Digital 5.1. With sources other than stereo (5.1, etc.) the display will automatically show the type of decoding being employed (Dolby Digital, DTS-ES, etc.).
This mode gives 4.1 channel surround sound. It is less sensitive to the quality of the source material, so may be useful when 2 PRO LOGIC II MOVIE or 2 PRO LOGIC II MUSIC modes do not give good results. With sources other than stereo (5.1, etc.) the display will automatically show the type of decoding being employed (Dolby Digital, DTS-ES, etc.).
This mode gives 6.1 channel surround sound and is suitable for movies. The NEO:6 CINEMA mode delivers good channel separation for movie soundtracks. With sources other than stereo (5.1, etc.) the display will automatically show the type of decoding being employed (Dolby Digital, DTS-ES, etc.).
This mode is designed for action movies, which generally use lots of sound effects. The mode enriches the sound to make it more realistic and extends the parameters to pick up high and low sound effects.
This mode is designed for science fiction movies. It creates a broad sound space, separating dialog from sound effects to heighten the overall impact of the soundtrack.
This mode is designed for movies with a lot of dialog. The elements of dialog are enhanced, making the characters seem more real. The mode also compresses the dynamic range somewhat so loud sounds do not overpower softer ones (compare this with the MIDNIGHT listening mode explained on page 48).
This mode is primarily for music and adds a spacious feeling to the sound. A long delay time of reflected sounds provides resonant tones which emulate a concert hall.
This mode is designed for older movies which are recorded with mono soundtracks. The special sound processing of this mode will allow you to experience these movies in surround sound even though they were not recorded that way originally.
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. The mode should be used in conjunction with Dolby Pro Logic for sources bearing the DOLBY SURROUND mark. The display will show either 5-D THEATER or 7-D THEATER according to the source, SB CH MODE and speaker configuration.
* When you input a multichannel signal the decoding is done automatically so you cannot choose these
