Getting Started
Putting Batteries in the Remote Control
Before using the remote control, put two supplied batteries first.
• When using the remote control, aim the remote control directly at
the remote sensor on the center unit.
1. On the back of the remote control, remove the
battery cover.
2. Insert batteries. Make sure to match the polarity:
(+) to (+) and (–) to (–).
3. Replace the cover.
If the range or effectiveness of the remote control decreases, replace
the batteries. Use two UM-4“AAA”/IEC “R03” type dry-cell
batteries.
CAUTION:
Follow these precautions to avoid leaking or cracking cells:
• Place batteries in the remote control so they match the polarity: (+)
to (+) and (–) to (–).
• Use the correct type of batteries. Batteries that look similar may
differ in voltage.
• Always replace both batteries at the same time.
• Do not expose batteries to heat or flame.
Before Installation
General Precautions
• DO NOT insert any metal object into the center unit.
• DO NOT disassemble the center unit or remove screws, covers, or
cabinet.
• DO NOT expose the center unit to rain or moisture.
Locations
• Install the center unit in a location that is level and protected from
moisture.
• The temperature around the center unit must be between 5˚C and
35˚C (41˚F and 95˚F).
• Make sure there is good ventilation around the center unit. Poor
ventilation could cause overheating and damage the center unit.
Handling the center unit
• DO NOT touch the power cord with wet hands.
• DO NOT pull on the power cord to unplug the cord. When
unplugging the cord, always grasp the plug so as not to damage
the cord.
• Keep the power cord away from the connecting cords and the
antenna. The power cord may cause noise or screen interference. It
is recommended to use a coaxial cable for antenna connection,
since it is well-shielded against interference.
• When a power failure occurs, or when you unplug the power cord,
the preset settings such as preset FM/AM channels and sound
adjustments may be erased in a few days.
Checking the Supplied Accessories
Check to be sure you have all of the following supplied accessories.
The number in the parentheses indicates the quantity of the pieces
supplied.
• Remote Control (1)
• Batteries (2)
• AM Loop Antenna (1)
• FM Antenna (1)
• AC Plug Adaptor (1)
• Video Cord (1)
• Speaker Cords
5 m (4)* : For left front speaker, right front speaker, center
speaker, and subwoofer
10 m (2)* : For left rear speaker and right rear speaker
* The length of the speaker cords above are approximate.
If anything is missing, contact your dealer immediately.
Adjusting the Voltage Selector
Before connections, always do the following first if necessary.
Set the correct voltage for your area with the voltage selector switch
on the rear panel. Slide the voltage selector using a screw driver, so
the voltage number the voltage mark is set at is the same as the
voltage where you are plugging in the system.

AM antenna connection
Connect the supplied AM loop antenna to the AM and H terminals.
Turn the loop until you have the best reception.
• If reception is poor, connect an outdoor single vinyl-covered wire
to the AM terminal. (Keep the AM loop antenna connected.)
Note:
If the AM loop antenna wire is covered with vinyl, remove
the vinyl by twisting it as shown in the diagram.
Snap the tabs on the loop into
the slots of the base to
assemble the AM loop antenna.
If AM reception is poor, connect single vinyl-covered
wire (not supplied).
AM Loop Antenna
(supplied)
FM antenna connection
Connect the supplied FM antenna to the FM 75 Ω COAXIAL
terminal as temporary measure.
Extend the supplied FM antenna horizontally.
• If reception is poor, connect an outdoor antenna. Before attaching
a 75 Ω coaxial cable (with a standard type connector), disconnect
the supplied FM antenna.
Center unit
About the cooling fan
A cooling fan is mounted on the rear panel of the center unit to
prevent abnormal temperature inside the center unit, thus assuring
normal operation of the unit. The cooling fan automatically starts
rotating to supply external cool air to the inside of the center unit
when the internal temperature goes up.
For safety, observe the following carefully.
• Make sure there is good ventilation around the center unit. Poor
ventilation could overheat and damage the center unit.
• DO NOT block the cooling fan and the ventilation openings or
holes. (If they are blocked by a newspaper or cloth, etc., the
heat may not be able to get out.)

Connecting the Speakers
Connect the satellite speakers, center speaker, and subwoofer to the
terminals on the rear panel using speaker cords supplied.
Labels are attached to the speaker cords to indicate the speaker and
the terminal to which each is to be connected.
• The four satellite speakers can be used for any positions—front
left and right, and rear left and right.
• Connect the white cord to the red (+) terminal, and the black cord
to the black (–) terminal respectively.
CAUTION:
Use speakers with the SPEAKER IMPEDANCE indicated by the
speaker terminals.
Connecting speaker cords to the terminals
1 Press and hold the terminal clamp.
2 Insert the speaker cord.
3 Release the finger from the clamp.
Note:
If the speaker cord is covered with vinyl, remove the vinyl
by twisting it as shown in the diagram.
When setting the speakers
To obtain the best possible sound from this system, you need to
place all the speakers except the subwoofer at the same distance
from the listening position with each front faced toward the listener.
Since bass sound is non-directional, you can place a subwoofer
wherever you like. Normally place it in front of you.
Left front
speaker
Right front
speaker
Right rear

If your speakers cannot be placed at the same distance from the
listening position
You can adjust the delay time of the center speaker and rear
speakers. For in-depth information about adjusting the delay time,
see “Setting the Delay Time” on page 17.
Note:
You can change the phase of subwoofer sounds by connecting the
speaker cords to the terminals inversely—the white cord to the black
terminal, and the black cord to the red terminal.You may get the more
effective bass sounds by changing the phase.
CAUTION:
• When attaching the satellite speakers on the wall, have them
attached to the wall by a qualified person.
DO NOT attach the satellite speakers on the wall by yourself to
avoid an unexpected damage of their falling from the wall, caused
by incorrect attachment or weakness in the wall.
• Care is required in selecting a location for attaching speakers to the
wall. Injury to personnel, or damage to equipment, may result if the
speakers are attached in a location which interferes with daily
activities.

Dolby Pro Logic and Dolby 3 Stereo
Dolby Surround encoding format records the left front channel,
right front channel, center channel, and rear channel signals (total 4
channels) into 2 channels.
The Dolby Pro Logic decoder built in this system decodes these 2
channel signals into original 4 channel signals—matrix-based
multichannel reproduction, and allows you to enjoy a realistic stereo
sound in your listening room.
When one of Dolby Surround is selected, the PRO LOGIC indicator
lights up on the display.
Indications on the display for each surround
• Dolby Digital
• DTS Digital Surround
• Dolby Pro Logic
• Dolby 3 Stereo
• DSP*
* When you select FM/AM or AUX as the source, the Linear
PCM indicator ( ) does not light up.
– According to the speaker settings, some speaker indicators do
not light up. In this case, set the speaker setting appropriately.
Creating Realistic Sound Fields
You can use the following surround to reproduce a realistic sound
field.
• Digital Multichannel Surround—Dolby Digital and DTS Digital
Surround
• Dolby Surround
• DSP (Digital Signal Processor) modes
■ Dolby Digital and DTS Digital Surround
To enjoy surround effectively, all the speakers need to be
connected and activated.
Dolby Digital*
Used to reproduce multichannel sound tracks of the software
encoded with Dolby Digital ( ).
Dolby Digital encoding method (so-called discrete 5.1 channel
digital audio format) records and digitally compresses the left front
channel, right front channel, center channel, left rear channel, right
rear channel, and LFE channel signals (total 6 channels, but LFE
channel is counted as 0.1 channel. Therefore, called 5.1 channel).
Since each channel is completely independent from the other
channel signals to avoid interference, you can obtain much better
sound quality with much stereo and surround effects.
In addition, Dolby Digital enables stereo rear sounds, and sets the
cutoff frequency of the rear treble at 20 kHz, compared to 7 kHz for
Dolby Pro Logic. These facts enhance the sound movement and
being-there feelings much more than Dolby Pro Logic.
When the system detects Dolby Digital signals, the DOLBY
DIGITAL indicator lights up on the display.
DTS Digital Surround**
Used to reproduce multichannel sound tracks of the software
encoded with DTS Digital Surround ( ).
DTS Digital Surround is another discrete 5.1 channel digital audio
format available on CD, LD, and DVD software.
Compared to Dolby Digital, audio compression rate is relatively low.
This fact allows DTS Digital Surround format to add breadth and
depth to the reproduced sounds. As a result, DTS Digital Surround
features natural, solid and clear sound.
When the system detects DTS Digital Surround signals, the DTS
indicator lights up on the display.
■ Dolby Surround*
Used to reproduce sound tracks of the VCR tapes encoded with
Dolby Surround ( DOLBY SURROUND ).
This is only used for the sound sources coming through the AUX IN
jacks.

■ DSP (Digital Signal Processor) Modes
DSP modes have been designed to create important acoustic
surround elements.
The sound heard in a hall, a theater, a pavilion, a dance club, or a
live club consists of direct sound and indirect sound—early
reflections and reflections from behind. Direct sounds reach the
listener directly without any reflection. On the other hand, indirect
sounds are delayed by the distances of the ceiling and walls.
These indirect sounds are important elements of the acoustic
surround effects.
The following DSP modes are provided with this unit.
HALL : Gives clear vocal and the feeling of a concert
hall.
THEATER : Gives the feeling of a theater.
PAVILION : Gives the spacious feeling of a pavilion with a
high ceiling.
DANCE CLUB : Gives a throbbing bass beat.
LIVE CLUB : Gives the feeling of a live music club with a low
ceiling.
These DSP modes can be used to add the acoustic surround effects
while reproducing stereo analog software or Linear PCM digital
software, and can give you a real “being there” feeling.
When one of the DSP modes is selected, the DSP indicator lights up
on the display.
To check the speaker connections and settings using the test
tone
1. Select and play a DVD encoded with Dolby Digital or DTS
Digital Surround.
2. Press TEST on the remote control.
The test tone comes out from the speakers in the
order.
• If there is a speaker from which no sounds comes out, check
the speaker’s connection (see pages 6 and 7) and setting (see
page 16).
3. Press TEST again to stop the test tone.

Disc Introduction—DVD/VCD/CD
• On some DVD or VCD discs, their actual operations may be
different from what is explained in this manual. This is due to
the disc programming and disc structure, but not a
malfunction of this system.
• The following discs cannot be played back:
– DVD-Audio, DVD-ROM, DVD-RAM, DVD-R,
DVD-RW, CD-ROM, CD-I, (CD-I Ready), Photo CD, etc.
Playing back these discs will generate noise and damage the
speakers.
* Note on Region Code
DVD players and DVD Video discs have their own Region Code
numbers. This system can play back DVD discs recorded with the
color system of NTSC and PAL whose Region Code numbers
include “3.”
If a DVD with the inadequate Region Code numbers is loaded,
“REGION ERR” appears on the display and playback cannot
start.
IMPORTANT: Before performing any operations, make sure of
the following....
• Check the connection with the TV.
• Turn on the TV and select the correct input on the TV to view the
pictures or on-screen indications on the TV screen.
• For DVD playback, you can change the Setup menu setting to
your preference. (See pages 46 to 49.)
If “ ” appears on the TV screen when pressing a button,
the disc cannot accept an operation you have tried to do, or
information required for that operation is not recorded in the disc.
NOTICE : In some cases, without showing “ ,” operations
will not be accepted.

This system has been designed to play back the following discs:
DVD, Video CD, Audio CD, CD-R, and CD-RW.
• This system can also play back MP3 files recorded on CD-Rs and
CD-RWs. For in-depth information about what MP3 is, see “MP3
Introduction” on page 40.
Discs you can play:
Example 1: DVD disc
Example 2 : Video CD/Audio CD
Examples:
Disc structure—DVD, Video CD (VCD) and Audio CD (CD)
A DVD disc consists of Titles, and each title may be divided into
some Chapters. (See Example 1.)
For example, if a DVD disc contains some movies, each movie may
have its own title number, and it may be further divided into some
chapters.
On the other hand, a VCD or CD consists of Tracks. (See Example
2.)
In general, each song has its own track number. (On some discs,
each track may also be divided by Indexes.)
When playing back a VCD with Playback Control (PBC) function,
you can select what to view using the menu shown on the TV
screen. (While operating a Video CD using the menu, some of the
functions such as Repeat and Track Search may not work.)
CD-R
CD-RW
Notes on CD-R and CD-RW
User-edited CD-Rs (Recordable) and CD-RWs (Rewritable) can be
played back only if they are already “finalized.”
• The system can play back CD-Rs or CD-RWs recorded on a
personal computer if they have been recorded in the audio CD
format or recorded in MP3 format (see page 40).
However, they may not be played back depending on their
characteristics or recording conditions.
• Before playing back CD-Rs or CD-RWs, read their instructions or
cautions carefully.
• Some CD-Rs or CD-RWs may not be played back on this unit
because of their disc characteristics, damage or stain on them, or if
the built-in lens is dirty.
• CD-RWs may require a longer readout time. This is caused by the
fact that the reflectance of CD-RWs is lower than for regular CDs.

MP3 Introduction
This system is incorporated with an MP3 decoder. You can play
back MP3 tracks (files) recorded on CD-Rs, CD-RWs, and CD-
ROMs.
• Notice that “files” and “tracks” are used interchangeably.
What is MP3?
MP3 is an abbreviation of Motion Picture Experts Group (or MPEG)
Audio Layer 3. MP3 is simply a file format with a data compression
ratio of 1:10 (128 Kbps*). That means, by using MP3 format, one
CD-R or CD-RW can contain 10 times as much data volume as a
regular CD can.
* Bit rate is the average number of bits that one second of audio data
will consume. The measuring unit used is Kbps (1000 bits per
second).
To get a better audio quality, choose a higher bit rate. The most
popular bit rate for encoding (recording) is 128 Kbps.
MP3 File Compatibility
• This system can only read MP3 files that are recorded in the
format that is compliant with ISO 9660 Level 1 or Level 2.
• The system can read or play MP3 files only with the extension
code—“.mp3”.
• ID3* tags cannot be shown on the display.
* An MP3 file can contain file information called “ID3 Tag” where
its album name, performer, track title, etc. are recorded. There are
two versions—ID3v1 (ID3 Tag version 1) and ID3v2 (ID3 Tag
version 2).
Disc structure—How are MP3 files recorded
and played back?
“MP3 files (tracks)” can be recorded in “directories (or folders),” in
PC terminology.
During recording, the files and directories can be arranged in a way
similar to arranging files and folder/directories of computer data.
“Root” is similar to the root of a tree. Every file and directory can be
linked to the root.
In compliance with ISO 9660, the maximum allowable depth of
nested directories—so-called “hierarchy”—is eight (inclusive of the
root).
Playback order, files search order, and directory search order of the
MP3 files recorded on a disc are determined by the writing (or
encoding) application; therefore, playback order may be different
from the one you have intended while recording the folders/
directories and the files.
Note on MP3 discs
MP3 discs (either CD-R or CD-RW) require a longer readout time.
(It differs due to the complexity of the directory/file configuration.)
