The DSP Z9 has all the features a dedicated audiophile could want, and then some! Naturally, you get all the benefits of Yamaha's industry-leading CINEMA DSP technology, available in a broad selection of 55 surround programmes with 79 variations. SILENT CINEMA allows surround sound to be heard through headphones. The all-new YPAO (Yamaha Parametric Room Acoustic Optimizer) functions as a high-end parametric equalizer to automatically analyzer the room acoustics and optimize the sound output to match. A wide range of audio and video functions are provided, and the user-friendly GUI display offers an extensive choice of useful menus.

The DSP-Z9 employs a wide array of sophisticated technology, beginning with Burr-Brown 192-kHz/24-bit digital-to-analogue converters for all 11 channels with DSD (Direct Stream Digital) compatibility. An Accurate- Touch Volume Control is also used for all channels (Yamaha YAC520 LSIs). The digital bass/treble tone controls have turnover frequencies for main L/R and centre channels. 8-channel analogue input signals are processed by 96kHz A/D conversion for high sound quality. All circuitry is on a 4- layer processing board with fully shielded cabinet for reduced digital interference. The DSP-Z9 also offers i.LINK (IEEE1394) compatibility.

The DSPZ9 gives you a choice of five specialized signal paths, ensuring that you can obtain the purest signal quality possible. Pure Direct provides the shortest possible signal path for two-channel or multichannel analog inputs, with no signal processing and no display. Straight outputs the original analog or digital signal without any post-processing. Direct Stereo provides a direct connection for stereo input, with a dimmed display. 2-Channel Stereo processes the multi-channel signal and outputs it via two channels, for those with a two-speaker system. And i.LINK provides a digital connection for DVD-Audio Linear PCM, Super Audio CD DSD (Direct Stream Digital) and other high quality audio sources.
