Party Mode on Yamaha AV Receivers & Processors

Recommended Posts

I've been wondering what actually "Party mode" option does on Yamaha. It enhances the sound alright but what does it do actually in the background, such as increase gain on all channels a notch or two and/or override the speaker settings (both manual and/or auto YPAO ) and so on?!?

Never thought about this... I thought the 'Party Mode' was just some bulldust I wouldn't or didn't need. What does the manual say? And what AVR are we talking about here?

"Party mode will mirror the audio in the main area, zone 2 will have the option of a different source to the main area."

Yamaha RX-V675 Zone 2?...
"The party mode feature allows you to play a digital source in zone 2 but it has to be the same as that playing in the main zone. Without party mode or if you want to listen to 2 separate sources then you are limited to analogue inputs only for zone 2 (so no HDMI, optical or coaxial inputs)."

Getting interesting, I'll have to read up on this some more....

So far my experience is with 3020 and 5100. I never realized that it mirrored the audio in the main area to other zones cause I have only the main zone(area) But my question was more towards as to what differences it makes to the sound!?!

It definitely bumps up the sound level, also it overrides the settings in both manual and auto sound/speaker setup but exactly what parameters and how much? Can't seem to find anything on the manual which is on a DVD.

OK, bit more research, so it does definitely replicate the sound in the main zone to all other zone(s).

But again, my actual question is that what does it to the sound!?!

On my 7.1 system it sounds considerably different when you turn party Mode on compared to standard 7.1 listening.

It is louder, sounds like there is more gain on the high end of sound spectrum. So what does it do in the background?

"Input audio signals are mixed down to monaural and output at the analog ZONE OUT (ZONE 2/ZONE 3) jacks."

Edit: The quote above was from "Yamaha RX RX-Z7 Owner's Manual: Using The Party Mode", but it would apply to any Yammie AVR.
