Inputs and Outputs Notes
USB Wireless Transmitter: The
USB wireless transmitter allows you to wirelessly connect your computer to the
receiver. Once connected, you can wirelessly play music from your computer
through your home speakers. The USB wireless transmitter simply plugs into a USB
port on your Windows 98 SE, Windows Me, Windows 2000 or Windows XP equipped PC or a Mac computer with OS 9.2.1, 10.2, or later, and the USB wireless antenna connects to the back panel of the
Compression Compensative (CC)
Converter: The CC Converter eliminates jitter and ripples, achieving a
drastic reduction in digital distortion. The converter applies digital
upsampling to the front left and right channels to re-create the ultra-high
frequencies in musical performances that most recording technologies cannot
capture. Using the CC Converter lets you obtain a natural sound field from both
digital and analog sources. You can choose from the following modes:
- CC Converter 1: select
when playing back an analog source or a digital source with a non-compressed
digital sound signal (linear PCM)
- CC Converter 2: select
when playing back a source with a compressed digital sound signal (Dolby
Digital or DTS)
This receiver incorporates a wide variety of surround modes to bring you
maximum enjoyment from your audio and video software. The surround modes
- Surround Modes:

- DTS NEO:6 (Cinema and Music)
- DAP Modes:
- Hall 1
- Hall 2
- Live Club

Digital Acoustic Processor (DAP):
Sound field simulation technology allows precise ambience recreation of existing
theaters and halls. JVC's high-performance DSP and high-capacity memory, you can
enjoy multi-channel surround sound by playing 2-channel or multi-channel
software according to the speaker setting.
Virtual Surround Back: When
playing back Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital EX, DTS, or DTS-ES software, this mode
creates a virtual surround back speaker.
Quick Speaker Setup: The Quick
Speaker Setup helps you to easily and quickly register the speaker size and
distance according to your listening room to create the best possible surround
effect. After indicating the number of speakers in the system (2.0-channels,
2.1CH, 3.0CH, 3.1CH, etc. up to 7.1CH), and the room size (Large, Medium, or
Small), the receiver automatically set the speaker output levels to appropriate
values. You can also perform the speaker setup procedure manually for each
speaker, if desired.
Adjustable Sound Parameters:
You can adjust the following Surround and DSP sound parameters:
- Effect (DAP modes): allows
you to adjust the effect level from 1 to 5. As the number increases, the DAP
effect becomes stronger.
- Room Size (DAP modes):
allows you to adjust the virtual room size from 1 to 5. As the number
increases, the interval between reflections increases so that you will feel
as if you are in a larger room.
- Liveness (DAP modes):
allows you to adjust the liveness effect level from 1 to 5. As the number
increases, the attenuation level of reflections over time decreases so that
acoustics change from "Dead" to "Live."
- Panorama (Pro Logic IIx and
Pro Logic II Music modes only):
allows you to add a "wraparound" sound effect with side-wall imaging
- Center Width (Pro Logic IIx
and Pro Logic II Music modes only): allows you to adjust the position of
the center image
- Dimension (Pro Logic IIx and
Pro Logic II Music mode only): allows you to adjust the sound
localization position from 1 to 7. As the number increases, the sound
localization moves from back to front.
- Center Gain (Neo:6 Music mode
only): allows you to adjust the position of the center image
- Center Tone: allows you to
adjust the center tone from 1 to 5. As the number increases, the dialogue
becomes clearer so that human voices change from soft to sharp.
- Center Align: allows you
to adjust the sound so it sounds like the dialogue is coming from your
3D Headphone Mode: The built-in
headphone virtual surround system is compatible with multi-channel software like
Dolby Digital, DTS, etc. The signal processing algorithms used by the
high-performance DSP allows you to enjoy a natural surround sound through the
5-band Digital EQ: The Digital
EQ allows you to adjust the following frequencies: 63 Hz, 250 Hz, 1 kHz, 4 kHz,
and 16 kHz. Each frequency can be adjusted from -8 dB to +8 dB in 2 dB
This feature assigns and stores different sound settings for each source. The
following settings can be adjusted and stored for each source: Analog/digital
input mode, Bass Boost setting, Digital Equalization, Input attenuator mode,
Midnight Mode, Speaker output levels, and Surround/DSP mode selection.
One Touch Operation: This
feature allows you to assign and store the volume level setting for each source.
Input Attenuator: You
can attenuate an analog input signal if it is too high and causes distortion.
channels set to "Small" using bass management are filtered with a selectable
high-pass crossover. You can select a crossover point of 80 Hz, 100 Hz, 120 Hz,
150 Hz, or 200 Hz.
LFE Attenuator: When the bass
is distorted, you can lower LFE bass output by 10 dB.
Midnight Mode: You can choose a
Midnight mode setting of "Midnight 1", "Midnight 2" or "Off." The "Midnight 1"
setting compresses the dynamic range very little, whereas the "Midnight 2"
setting offers full dynamic range compression.
Note: Midnight mode is
only available when specially encoded Dolby Digital signals are played.
Sleep Timer: This
unit is equipped with a sleep timer that will automatically turn the unit off.
The sleep timer can be adjusted from 10 to 90 minutes in 10-minute increments.
Display Dimmer: The display
brightness may be set to one of three available settings: Dimmer 1 (dims the
display), Dimmer 2 (dims the display more than Dimmer 1), or Dimmer 3 (turns the
Wireless Remote: The remote controls JVC audio/video components (TVs,
VCRs, DVD recorders, and DVD players) and it is pre-programmed to control most
popular brands of TVs, VCRs, cable boxes, DBS receivers, and DVD players.
A/V Compu Link-III:
JVC's exclusive Compu Link Remote Control System allows you to control other JVC
audio/video components through the remote sensor of the receiver. Other benefits
of connecting other JVC components to the Compu Link system include automatic
source selection, automatic power on/off and synchronized recording. This
receiver's remote input cable connections conform to the A/V Compu Link-III
Inputs and Outputs Notes
Headphone Jack: This unit has a
gold-plated standard 1/4" headphone jack on the front panel.
The front panel USB port allows you to connect your computer to the
receiver. Once connected, you can play music from your computer through your
Assignable Digital Inputs: The
receiver features 3 rear panel digital input terminals (1 coaxial, 2 optical).
The digital inputs can be assigned to any of the A/V inputs on the receiver. The
digital signal format transmitted through the Digital Out terminal is the same
as that of the input signal.
DVD/5.1-Channel Input: The
Audio/Video input labeled "DVD Multi In" combines the DVD analog input with the
multi-channel input for an external decoder. If you are connecting a DVD player
using the stereo analog inputs, you should use the Front Left and Right RCA
jacks of this input (labeled "DVR/DVD In"). If you are connecting an external
5.1-channel decoder or a DVD player with built-in Dolby Digital (and/or DTS)
decoding, you should use all 6 RCA jacks (Front L+R, Surround L+R, Center and
Subwoofer). In addition to the 6 audio input jacks, there are composite,
component and S-Video jacks.
Speaker Terminals: The front
and center speakers have binding post connectors, while the surround and
surround back speakers use clip connectors. The binding posts are not 5-way
because a plastic collar prevents their use with spade lugs and they are
positioned too far apart to be used with dual banana plugs.
A/V Compu Link-III:
The receiver has two A/V Compu Link-III
minijacks, allowing you to connect and control compatible JVC components.
USB Wireless Antenna:
This jack allows you to connect the supplied USB antenna so you can wirelessly
transfer audio from your computer to the receiver.
