or exaggerated for the purpose of explana-
tion.
• You can operate some functions differently
from the explanation given in this manual.
• Depending on the disc/file, you may not
obtain the explained result even after follow-
ing the operation in this manual.

The use of three main feet on the bottom of the
main unit enables higher sound quality while main-
taining the stability of the main unit.
In addition, the two studs on the bottom help stabi-
lize the main unit and prevent it from wobbling or
tipping when nudged from above. Because the
studs are slightly shorter than the main feet, the
studs do not come in contact with the mounted sur-
face, leaving the main feet to support the main
unit.

Preparation
Setting up the AM loop antenna
Connecting the AM loop antenna
Turn the AM loop antenna to find the best position
for radio reception.
NOTE
• Make sure that the antenna conductors do not
touch any other terminals. This could cause poor
reception.
When radio reception with the supplied FM
antenna is poor, or when using a communal
antenna
When using an antenna other than those supplied
with this system, refer to the operation manuals for
the antenna and converter for details of connec-
tion.
When positioning the antennas, find the best posi-
tion for reception while listening to an actual radio
program (refer to “Listening to radio broadcasts”
on page 19).

If insulation covers the tips of the
antenna cable, twist and pull off

The left and right speakers are the same.
■ IMPORTANT
• Improper speaker cable connection reduces the
stereo effect and sound quality.
• 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.
CAUTION
• Do not short-circuit the ª and · speaker termi-
nals. Doing so may damage the main unit.
• The impedance of speakers connected to the
main unit must be within the range of 4 Ω to 16 Ω.
• Do not connect other speakers together with the
supplied speakers. The change in impedance
may damage the main unit and the speakers.
Connecting the speakers
Before connecting the speaker cables, twist and pull off the insulation at
the end of each speaker cable.

The speakers employ natural wood for the
diaphragm and the cabinet in order to
reproduce the original sound faithfully.
The appearance therefore differs for each
system.
You can detach the speaker cover.

■ IMPORTANT
• Do not connect an S-video cable and a compo-
nent video cable at the same time. Otherwise
the picture may not be played back properly.
• 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.

The audio output signal from the [LINE1 OUT] or
[LINE 2 OUT] terminal is processed to resemble
surround sound when the K2 function, clear voice
function, 3D PHONIC function, or headphone sur-
round mode function is activated. To record raw,
unprocessed sound, turn off these functions. Do not
turn the K2 function on or off while recording sound,
as this may cause intermittent sound output.
• An audio signal from a device connected to the
[LINE1 IN] terminal is not output via the [LINE1
OUT] terminal.
When you connect this system with an amplifier-
built-in subwoofer (not supplied), you can enjoy a
more dynamic bass sound. Refer to the manual of
the subwoofer for details.
Press [S.WFR OUT] to select
“S WOOFER ON” (Subwoofer on) in
the display window.
• Each time you press [S.WFR OUT], the display
toggles between “S WOOFER ON” and
“S WOOFER OFF” (Subwoofer off).
NOTE
• When “S WOOFER ON” is selected, the bass
sound from the left and right speakers is auto-
matically turned down, and the bass sound is
emitted mainly from the subwoofer.

The K2 function is designed to provide natural
sound by improving the playback sound from low-
bit-rate digital sources.
The function compensates for sound waves dissi-
pated during digital recording compression to
approximate the original analog sound. Sound is
reproduced with more bits (24 bit) and a wider
range of frequency (128 kHz, 176.4 kHz or
192 kHz).
Press [K2] on the remote control or on
the main unit.
• When the K2 function is activated, the [K2] lamp
(button) on the main unit lights up.
• Each time you press [K2], the display changes
as follows.
- “K2 Mode 1”:
Plays back a digital source with non-com-
pressed sound signals (linear PCM).
- “K2 Mode 2”:
Plays back a digital source with compressed
sound signals (Dolby digital, DTS, MP3 or
WMA).
- “K2 OFF”:
Cancels the K2 function.
NOTE
• The initial setting is “K2 OFF”.
• If [K2] is pressed when the clear voice function,
headphone surround mode function, or 3D
PHONIC is activated, these functions are turned
off and the K2 function is activated.
• If [K2] is pressed when an AM/FM broadcast or
an analog audio device connected to the [LINE1
IN] or [LINE 2 IN] terminal is selected as the
source, “ANALOG SOURCE” is displayed in the
display window, and the K2 function is not acti-
vated. The K2 function is activated when a
loaded disc, a connected USB mass storage
class device, or a digital audio device connected
to the [LINE 3 DIGITAL IN] terminal is selected
as the source.
• The original range of frequency is automatically
detected and extended to a specific range.
When the original range is 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz or
48 kHz, the range is extended to 128 kHz,
176.4 kHz or 192 kHz respectively.
• This function is available when “PCM ONLY” is
selected for “DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT” (refer to
page 43). “NO OPERATION” appears in the dis-
play window and the K2 function cannot be used
