Please ensure that all electrical components are switched off before connecting. Your Digital Movie System has three optional inputs. In principle
it is enough to connect one of these inputs to your TV and all further devices to your TV. To achieve the best possible sound we recommend that
you connect your satellite receiver, Blu-Ray or DVD player directly to the DM system. The following options are possible, depending on the type
and fittings of the source used:
TV – Digital input (optical)
Modern TV devices have an optical audio output (Toslink). Connect this with the
input marked “TV” on the DM system. This connection guarantees optimal signal
transmission and best sound quality.
Important: Remove protective caps from optical cable.
DVD – Digital input (coaxial)
To transmit the DVD sound signal connect the digital coaxial output of your Blu-Ray or
DVD player with the jack marked “DVD” on the DM system. To transmit the picture
signal your DVD player must also be connected to the TV. The input marked “DVD”
on the DM system can be selected if your TV does not have an optical output.
AUX – Analogue input
If your TV only has an audio output marked “Pre-Out” then connect it using the
shielded stereo RCA cable plugged into the analogue input on the DM system marked
“AUX”. Otherwise this input can be used to connect video recorders or game consoles.
SUB – Analogue output
Use this output when you want to connect an external active subwoofer. SUB OUT
is not active in the basic setting and needs to be activated using the remote control.
See page 42 “Extended sound functions”.

Extended sound functions
The menu for extended sound functions offers you the chance to correct out-of-synch
playback, to activate the output for a wired external subwoofer, to adjust the playback
to suit the location and to switch the Dolby function “Dynamic Range Compression”
on or off.
If you press and hold the key marked “Sound” on the remote control for longer than 3
seconds you will enter the “Extended sound functions” menu and the display LIP
will appear on the Soundbar.
You can now use the “Volume +/–“ keys to delay the playback in 10 ms steps to
synchronise the sound with the “delayed” image.
Press the “Sound” key briefly once more and the display sub will appear.
The “Volume +/–” keys can also be used to switch the output for an external subwoo-
fer on or off. Please note: when the SUB OUT is activated the playback of the Soundbar
will be limited to 80 Hz. Frequencies below 80 Hz are sent to the external subwoofer.
Press the “Sound” key again briefly one more time and the display eq will appear.
Now use the “Volume +/–” keys to choose between three pre-set equalizer settings to
adjust the playback to suit the location.
Page: 44
EQ1 for a free-standing DM system e.g. on a sideboard with a flat-screen TV on the
wall (factory setting).
EQ2 for a set-up where a flat-screen TV is positioned on top of the DM system.
EQ3 for a set-up where the DM system is in a rack or on a shelf.
When the “Sound” key is pressed again the display changes to DRC .
“Dynamic Range Compression” is a setting option created by Dolby Laboratories.
When activated, the dynamic range of Dolby encoded data streams can be auto­
matically reduced, which also reduces differences in volume. This makes it possible
to enhance quiet tones and suppress loud ones.
The “Volume +/–” keys can be used to switch the DRC function on or off.
After pressing the “Sound” key again, the display switches to VOL .
You can limit the maximum settable volume with the (protective) function “Volume”
in such a way that the sound level (shown in the display) cannot be turned up above
the set value.
You can then use the “Volume +/–“ keys to set the desired volume (0 – 99 with 99
representing the maximum).
