Inputs and Outputs Notes
Digital Amplifier: The JVC
RX-D411S is equipped with the JVC-exclusive Hybrid Feedback Digital Amplifier. The
compact, highly efficient amplifier is able to generate high power output with
low distortion levels. This technology uses two digital feedback loops to
generate a precise signal, and two analog feedback loops to ensure that the
final signal is identical to the original. This design allows the receiver to
have a significantly lower profile (less than 3-5/8" high) than traditional
HDMI Compatible: The RX-D411S
supports up to HDMI version 1.1. This allows you transmit digital video and
audio signal without AD/DA conversion with one easy connection. This receiver
can digitally receive 5.1-channel PCM with 96kHz and 2-channel PCM with fs 192
kHz. You can enjoy digital sound without deterioration.
HDCP Compatible: This receiver
is compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection). HDCP
contents can be viewed if you connect and HDCP-compatible TV to this receiver.
7.1 Channel DAP (Digital Acoustic
Processor): Soundfield simulation technology allows precise ambience
recreating of existing theaters and halls. Thanks to the high-performance DSP
(Digital Signal Processor) and high-capacity memory, you can enjoy 7.1-channel
surround by playing 2-channel or multi-channel software.
Precise Surround Setup: Precise
Surround Setup is a newly-developed JVC solution for quick, easy and systematic
optimization of surround sound. By using Precise Surround Setup, you can enjoy
the best possible surround performance. Precise Surround Setup measures the
listening environment accurately with the dedicated earphone-type microphones
and adjusts the speaker settings automatically.
DCDi Technology: Direction
Correlation Deinterlacing technology eliminates jagged edges generated in
progressive scanning conversion. With DCDi, you can enjoy clear and smooth video
images on your Television.
Note: This function is
applied only when the NTSC analog video signals are transmitted to the
K2 Technology: K2 technology
has been designed to enable natural audio reproduction, achieving a drastic
reduction in digital distortion and creating original sound ambience with high
Built-in Cooling Fan: The
receiver has a built-in cooling fan which operates while the receiver is turned
on. Be sure to leave enough ventilation to obtain sufficient cooling effect.
XM Compatible The RXD-411S is
an XM Ready receiver. To enjoy XM Satellite Radio you can connect the
optional XM Passport System or the optional, conventional XM Connect and Play
digital antenna directly to the receiver.

The sleep timer can be adjusted from 10 to 90 minutes in 10-minute increments.
CC (Compression Compensative)
Converter: JVC's CC Converter eliminates jitter and ripples, achieving a
drastic reduction in digital distortion by processing the digital music data in
24 bit-quantization and by expanding the sampling frequency to 176.4 kHz (for fs
44.1 kHz signals) / 192 kHz (for fs 48 kHz signals) on the front speakers. By
using the CC Converter, you can obtain a natural sound filed from both digital
and analog sources. There are 3 adjustments to choose from.
- CC CNVRTR 1: Select this
mode when playing back an analog source or a digital source with non
compressed digital sound signal (Linear PCM).
- CC CNVRTR 2: Select this
mode when playing back a source with compressed digital sound signal (Dolby
Digital or DTS).
- CC CNVRTR OFF: Select
"OFF" when you do not want to use the CC Converter.
Auto Memory: This receiver
memorizes sound setting for each source. When you turn the power off or when you
change the source, the memorized settings for the newly selected source are
automatically recalled. The following settings can be stored for each source.
- Video and Audio input settings
- CC Converter
- Midnight mode
- Digital equalization patterns

FM Reception Mode: When an FM
stereo broadcast is hard to receive or is noisy, you can change the FM reception
mode. You can store the FM reception mode for each preset station (30 FM/15 AM).
- Auto Muting (Normal Setting):
When a program is broadcast in stereo, you will hear stereo sound, when
in monaural, you will hear monaural sound. This mod is also useful to
suppress static noise between stations.
- Mono: Select this to
improve the reception (stereo effect will be lost). In this mode, you will
hear noise while tuning in to the stations.
Manual Setup of the Speakers:
To obtain the best possible surround effect from the Surround and DSP modes, you
need to set up the speaker and subwoofer information after all the connections
- Subwoofer Setting: Select
"Yes" or "N0" depending on whether you connected a powered subwoofer to the
- Speaker Size: This setting
allows you to register the size of all the speakers connected to the
- Large: Use this
setting when the cone speaker size is greater than 4.75".
- Small: Use this
setting when the cone speaker size is smaller than 4.75".
- No: Use this setting
when you have not connected that particular speaker.
- Surround Back: This
setting allows you to register the number of surround back speakers in your
- SB Out 1Spk: Select
this mode when you use a single surround back speaker.
- SB Out 2Spk: Select
this mode when you use a pair of surround back speakers.
- Speaker Distance: By using
this feature, you can set the distance between the speakers and the your
main listening position. The distance is measure either in feet for meters.
The adjustable range is 0.3 m to 9.0 m in 0.15 intervals or 1 ft to 30 ft in
0.5 ft intervals.
Subwoofer Output Setting: You
can adjust the signal processing for the subwoofer output.
- SW LFE: In this setting
the subwoofer emits the LFE signals and the bass elements of the speakers
set to small.
- SW LFE+Main: In this
setting the subwoofer emits the LFE signals and the bass elements of the
speaker set to small. The subwoofer also emits the bass elements of front
speaker when no LFE signal nor the bass elements of small speakers exist.
Crossover Setting: You can
adjust the low pass cut off frequency of the "small" speakers in your
application based on the cone diameter of the speaker. You can select the
following crossover points - 80Hz, 100Hz, 120Hz, 150Hz, and 200Hz.
LFE (Low Frequency Effect)
Attenuator: If the bass sound is distorted while playing back software
encoded with Dolby Digital or DTS, use the LFE level to eliminate this
- LFE 0dB: normal setting
- LFE -10dB: select when the
bass sound is distorted
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.
Audio Delay: Synchronization
between audio and video reproduction can be possibly disturbed because video
signal decoding is time consuming compared to the audio signal decoding. With
this setting, you can correct the synchronization between video and audio
signals by delaying the audio signal timing. The adjustable range is - "Off" and
10 ms to 150 ms in 10 ms intervals.
Adjustable Speaker Output Levels:
You can adjust all the speakers' and subwoofer output levels from -10 dB to
+10 dB in 1 dB intervals.

equalization patterns in five frequency bands (63 Hz, 250 Hz, 1 kHz, 4 kHz and
16 kHz) for the front speakers. The adjustable range for each frequency is -8 dB
to +8 dB in 2 dB intervals. Once you have made an adjustment, it is memorized
for each source.
Bass Boost: You can boost the
bass level by using the Bass Boost function. Once you have made the adjustment,
it is memorized for each source. This function only affects the sound coming out
through the front speakers.
Input Attenuator: You
can attenuate an analog input signal if it is too high and causes distortion.
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.
