frequency response, 10Hz to 100kHz (+0/-3 dB), allows you to enjoy the full fidelity of
DVD-Audio and Super-Audio CD players.
192kHz/24-bit DAC: The RX-V567 uses high quality, audio-grade
Burr-Brown 192kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converters for all channels to maximize
YPAO Technology: This unit employs the YPAO (Yamaha Parametric
Acoustic Optimizer), which automatically adjusts the output of the speakers based
on placement, performance, and the room's acoustic characteristics. Using the supplied
Optimizer Microphone, YPAO performs the following checks and makes appropriate
adjustments to give you the best possible sound from your system:
- Speaker Wiring: checks which speakers
are connected and the polarity of each
- Speaker Distance: checks the distance
of each speaker from the listening position and adjusts the
delay of each channel
- Speaker Size: checks the frequency response
of each speaker and sets the appropriate crossover
frequency for each channel
- EQ: each channel has a parametric equalizer;
choose one of three target settings before running the setup:
- Natural: adjusts all
speaker to a natural sound; useful when
the flat setting sounds too bright
- Flat: use when all the
speakers in the system have similar sound
- Front: EQs the center
and rear speakers to sound like the front; useful when your front speakers
are better than the others in the system
- Volume Level: checks and
adjusts the volume level of each speaker
Next Generation Surround Sound: The RX-V567 offers the latest
high definition surround sound formats supported by Blu-ray Disc and HD-DVD players:

signals to the surround speakers as well as
the front speakers for a wraparound effect
- Dimension: adjusts the
soundfield either towards the front or towards
the rear of the room
- Center Width: moves the
center channel output completely towards the
center speaker or towards the front left and
Center Image (DTS NEO: 6 Music): This parameter adjusts the
front left and right channel output relative to the center channel to make the
center channel more or less dominant as necessary.
Speaker Setup: This feature allows you to manually adjust the
following speaker settings:
- Subwoofer: None or Yes
- Extra Bass: select the speakers that
will output the front channel low-frequency information; choose On (both
front speakers and sub) or Off (either the front speakers or the sub,
depending on front speaker size setting)
- Speaker Sizes: select from the following
speaker sizes for each speaker in your system:
- Front: Large or Small
- Center: Large, Small,
- Surround: Large, Small,
- Surround Back: Large x 1,
Large x 2, Small x 1, Small x 2, or None
- Crossover: select the crossover frequency of the
subwoofer and all the speakers set to Small; choose between 40, 60, 80, 90,
100, 110, 120, 160, and 200Hz
- Subwoofer Phase: switch the phase of
your subwoofer between Normal and Reverse
- Speaker Level Adjustment: adjust the
output level of each speaker from -10 dB to +10 dB in 0.5
dB steps (relative to the main volume)
- Speaker Distance: adjust the distance
from the listener to each speaker (and subsequently the
delay applied to the respective channel); select from 1 to
80 feet in 0.5 foot steps
- Equalizer: each of the full range channels
is equalized individually; choose Auto PEQ (uses the parametric equalizer
and settings determined by the YPAO auto setup), GEQ (manually adjust the
seven band graphic equalizer), or off
Silent Cinema: The Silent Cinema mode allows private listening
of multi-channel music or movies, with an accurate simulation of surround sound,
through ordinary stereo headphones. Silent Cinema activates automatically whenever
you connect headphones while surround sound is engaged.
Compressed Music Enhancer: Compressed formats such as MP3, WMA,
and AAC generally remove high and low frequency harmonic information, resulting in
a loss of fidelity. The Compressed Music Enhancer, two-channel and 7-channel,
regenerates the missing harmonics in compression artifacts and compensates for the
loss of low- and high-frequencies to provide improved performance.
Adaptive DRC: Adaptive DRC (Dynamic Range Control) adjusts
the dynamic range in relation to the volume, useful at low volume; choose Auto
Dynamic Range: The amount of dynamic range compression applied
to bitstream signals (Dolby Digital and DTS) is adjustable; Min/Auto is suitable
for low volume listening, Standard is typical for home use, and Max doesn't compress
the dynamic range at all.
Bass and Treble Control: You can independently adjust the bass
(50 Hz) and treble (20 kHz) from -10dB to +10dB in 2 dB increments.
Virtual Cinema DSP: Virtual Cinema DSP is an algorithm that allows
you to enjoy DSP soundfield surround effects while using a minimal two-speaker system.
Straight Decoding Mode: When the unit is in the Straight mode,
2-channel stereo sources are output from only the front left and right speakers
while multi-channel sources are decoded straight into the appropriate channels
without any additional effect processing.
Direct: The Direct mode turns off the surround and tone circuitry,
and dims the front panel display, allowing sources to bypass the decoders and DSP
processors of this unit so you can enjoy pure hi-fi sound from 2-channel analog
sources. During Direct playback no sound is output from the subwoofer.
Impedance Selection: You can set the amplifier to 8 ohms or
6 ohms depending on your speaker application.
Audio Delay: You can delay the sound output up to 240ms to
synchronize it with the video image.
Max Volume Adjustment: Use this feature to set the
volume level. This feature is useful to avoid turning the volume
too loud by mistake. You can set the Max Volume from -30 dB to +15 dB in 5 dB
steps, or to +16.5 dB (full volume range is -80 dB to +16.5 dB).
Initial Volume Setting: Use this feature to set the volume
level when the power is turned on. You can choose
between Off (same as the volume when the unit was turned off), Mute, and -80 dB
to + 16.5 dB in increments of 0.5 dB.
Volume Trim: Use this feature to adjust the volume level of
each input, useful to balance the level of each input to avoid sudden
changes in volume when switching between input sources. The range is from -6 dB
to +6 dB in 0.5 dB increments.
Speaker Terminals: The receiver has binding post terminals
for the speaker outputs. The binding posts can accept bare wire, pin connectors,
and single banana plugs. The terminals are spaced too far apart for dual banana
plugs and a collar surrounding them prevents the use of spade
Bi-Amp Speaker Connections: This receiver allows you to
reassign the surround back amplifier channels to make bi-amp connections. A
bi-amplification connection uses two amplifiers for one speaker. One amplifier
is connected to the woofer section of a loudspeaker while the other is connected
to the combined midrange and tweeter section. With this arrangement each
amplifier operates over a limited frequency range, making its job easier.
Sleep Timer: The receiver's Sleep Timer function can be set
turn the unit off automatically after 30, 60, 90, or 120 minutes.
Memory Guard: This feature is used to prevent accidental changes
to the DSP program parameter values and other system settings.
