Absolutely perfect! I've been trying to understand how to use all or at least some of the features of the receiver and especially the remote.
Copy of genuine owners/operators manual, very useful
The manual was a perfect match and was exactly what I was looking for. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
Thank you for having the manual I needed for an older model Aiwa stero I had found on Ebay --- I wanted the Aiwa because I had tapes and cd's but I did not have a manual as to how to operate the system... I found what I needed and it has enabled me to set the system up for my enjoyment.
I wished detailed information of the JBL S310 and here I found it! Very happy with the service from this site!
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
