Preparation
■ CAUTION
• An incorrect connection may damage the speak-
ers. Properly connect the cables to the speaker
terminals.
• Do not short-circuit the ª and · speaker termi-
nals. Doing so may damage the main unit.
• The supplied speakers are manufactured exclu-
sively for use with the supplied main unit as
parts of the DD-8/DD-3/DD-1 system. Do not
connect the supplied speakers to devices other
than the supplied main unit. Doing so may dam-
age the speakers.
• Do not connect other speakers together with the
supplied speakers. The change in impedance
may damage the main unit and the speakers.
• Improper speaker cable connection spoils the
stereo effect and sound quality.
• Most of the supplied speakers* are magnetically
shielded, but color irregularity may occur on the
TV depending on some conditions. To prevent
color irregularity, set up the speakers following
the instructions below.
1. Turn off the main power of the TV before
setting up the speakers.
2. Place the speakers enough distance from the
TV so that they do not cause color irregularity
on the TV.
3. Wait for approximately 30 minutes before
turning on the main power of the TV again.
* The subwoofers for DD-3 and DD-1 are not
magnetically shielded. With the exception of
these 2 subwoofers, the supplied speakers
are magnetically shielded.

DD-8 and DD-3 can output uncompressed digital
video signals to a TV compatible with HDMI (High
Definition Multimedia Interface).
NOTE
• When using an HDMI cable to connect a TV to
the main unit, select “HDMI” for the monitor out
type. (Refer to page 14.)
• DD-8 and DD-3 support up to HDMI version 1.0.
The HDMI video signal type can be checked with
the “HDMI” indicator in the display window.
(Refer to “Selecting the video signal type” on
page 13. )
• If the picture is distorted while an HDMI TV is
connected, turn off the main unit and turn it on
again.
• A TV compatible with HDCP (High-Bandwidth
Digital Content Protection) can also be con-
nected to the [HDMI] terminal, so that the
uncompressed HD video signal type can be out-
put as well.

Preparation
■ CAUTION
• Connect the main unit directly to a TV (or a mon-
itor) without routing through a video cassette
recorder (VCR). Otherwise picture distortion
may occur during playback. (Routing the con-
nection through a VCR, however, does not affect
the audio quality.)
• Connecting the main unit to a VCR-built-in-TV
may also cause picture distortion during play-
back.
To view an image on the TV screen, select the
video signal type correctly according to the TV
after connecting the main unit to the TV.
1 Turn on the main unit. (Refer to
“Connecting the power cable” on
page 16 and “Turning on the main
unit” on page 17.)
2 Hold down [SCAN MODE] for 2 or
more seconds.
