VENTILATION CAUTION
When installing this unit, make sure to leave space
around the unit for ventilation to improve heat
radiation (at least 10 cm at top, 10 cm at rear, and
10 cm at each side).
WARNING
Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for
ventilation to ensure reliable operation of the
product, and to protect it from overheating. To
prevent fire hazard, the openings should never be
blocked or covered with items (such as newspapers,
table-cloths, curtains) or by operating the
equipment on thick carpet or a bed. D3-4-2-1-7b_A_En
WARNING
To prevent a fire hazard, do not place any naked
flame sources (such as a lighted candle) on the
equipment. D3-4-2-1-7a_A_En
CAUTION
The STANDBY/ON switch on this unit will not
completely shut off all power from the AC outlet.
Since the power cord serves as the main disconnect
device for the unit, you will need to unplug it from
the AC outlet to shut down all power. Therefore,
make sure the unit has been installed so that the
power cord can be easily unplugged from the AC
outlet in case of an accident. To avoid fire hazard,
the power cord should also be unplugged from the
AC outlet when left unused for a long period of time
(for example, when on vacation). D3-4-2-2-2a_A_En

POWER-CORD CAUTION
Handle the power cord by the plug. Do not pull out the
plug by tugging the cord and never touch the power
cord when your hands are wet as this could cause a
short circuit or electric shock. Do not place the unit, a
piece of furniture, etc., on the power cord, or pinch the
cord. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other
cords. The power cords should be routed such that they
are not likely to be stepped on. A damaged power cord
can cause a fire or give you an electrical shock. Check
the power cord once in a while. When you find it
damaged, ask your nearest PIONEER authorized
service center or your dealer for a replacement. S002*_En

Do not install this unit in a poorly ventilated area, or in
locations exposed to high humidity or direct sunlight (or
strong artificial light)
D3-4-2-1-7c*_A1_En
If the AC plug of this unit does not match the AC
outlet you want to use, the plug must be removed
and appropriate one fitted. Replacement and
mounting of an AC plug on the power supply cord of
this unit should be performed only by qualified
service personnel. If connected to an AC outlet, the
cut-off plug can cause severe electrical shock. Make
sure it is properly disposed of after removal.
The equipment should be disconnected by removing
the mains plug from the wall socket when left unused
for a long period of time (for example, when on

Speaker Setup Guide
Home theater sound setup
Depending on the size and characteristics of
your room, you can place your speakers in one
of two ways using this system. For the speaker
configuration, see the Setup Guide.
5 spot/4 spot speaker layout
This is a standard multichannel surround
sound speaker setup for optimal 5.1 channel
home theater sound.
3 spot/2 spot speaker layout
This setup is ideal when rear surround speaker
placement isn’t possible or you want to avoid
running long speaker cables in your listening
area.
Preparing the speakers
Preparation common to all models
Attaching non-skid pads
• Attach the smaller non-skid pads to the
base of each of the speakers. The four large
non-skid pads are for the subwoofer.
Use the supplied adhesive to attach 3 or 4 pads to
the base (flat surface) of each speaker.
Preparation for the HTZ280DVD/
HTZ280DVD-AP/HTZ282DVD/
HTZ282DVD-AP
The layouts of the 5-spot speaker and 3-spot
speaker are the same:
Assembling the speaker stands
• Attach the speaker stand bases to the
stems using the screws provided.
Once you have aligned the stem and base,
secure with the small screws at the points see
the Setup Guide. Note that the speaker should
face in the direction of the base of the isosceles
triangle.
CAUTION
• Be careful not to tighten screws
excessively.
• If excessive force is used to tighten screws,
the threads of screw and/or nut may be
damaged. Use a middle-sized manual
screwdriver during assembly.
• Do not use power screwdrivers or oversized
screwdrivers that may exert excessive force
on the screws and nuts.
• Confirm that no foreign matter is stuck to
the stand base or the tall speaker during
assembly.
• If the unit is assembled with foreign matter
stuck between the stand base and the tall
speaker the unit may not be assembled
securely, resulting in tipping or falling.
• Do not stand on the speaker stand base of
the tall speaker to push or swing the
speaker. The speaker may fall and break, or
someone may be injured. Pay special
attention to children.
Securing your front and surround
speakers
• Secure each of the front and surround
speakers using the plastic catch provided.
Screw two supporting hooks into the wall behind
the speaker. Pass a thick cord around the hooks
and through the plastic catch so that the speaker
is stabilized (make sure totest that itsupportsthe
weightofthespeaker).Afterinstalling,makesure
the speaker is securely fixed.

CAUTION
• The plastic catch is not a mounting fixture,
and the speaker should not be hung
directly from the wall using this catch.
Always use a cord when stabilizing the
speaker.
• Pioneer disclaims all responsibility for any
losses or damage resulting from improper
assembly, installation, insufficient
strength of the installation materials,
misuse, or natural disasters.
• When placing this unit, ensure that it is
firmly secured and avoid areas where it
may be likely to fall and cause injury in the
event of a natural disaster (such as an
earthquake).
Preparation only for the HTZ181DVD
Stack the speakers and fix the brackets
Each speaker is provided with a color-coded
indicator on the model label on the rear side to
assist identification. Refer to the color
indicators and install the speakers correctly.
As shown in the illustration, stack the
speakers.1
Align the bracket with the
respective upper and lower screw holes as
shown in each figure below and fasten the
screws securely.
4 spot/3 spot speaker layout:
2 spot speaker layout:
CAUTION
• Do not attempt to carry the speakers when
they are connected with the bracket. Doing
so may cause damage to the bracket or
worsen damage to the bracket and
speakers in the event they are dropped.
Wall mounting the speakers
For the HTZ180DVD, the front and surround
speaker have mounting brackets. For the
HTZ181DVD, the front, center and surround
speaker have mounting brackets. For the
HTZ280DVD/280DVD-AP, the center and
surround speaker have mounting holes. For
the HTZ282DVD/HTZ282DVD-AP, only the
center speaker has a mounting hole.
Before mounting
• Remember that the speaker system is
heavy and that its weight could cause the
screws to work loose, or the wall material to
fail to support it, resulting in the speaker
Note
1 When using the Front Surround mode, do not stack the surround speakers, but place them beside the front speaker and face
them about 60 degrees outward from the front speaker to obtain the best sound effect.

falling. Make sure that the wall you intend
to mount the speakers on is strong enough
to support them. Do not mount on plywood
or soft surface walls.
• Mounting screws are not supplied. Use
screws suitable for the wall material and
support the weight of the speaker.
CAUTION
• If you are unsure of the qualities and
strength of the wall, consult a professional
for advice.
• Pioneer is not responsible for any
accidents or damage that result from
improper installation.
Attaching the brackets only for the
HTZ180/181DVD
• Make sure to tighten the supplied screw as
securely as possible when attaching the
bracket to the back of the speaker.
• Please do not attach the brackets to the
center speaker.
Additional notes on speaker
placement
• Install the main front left and right
speakers at an equal distance from the TV.
• When using the 5 spot speaker layout,
install the surround speakers slightly
above ear level for optimum effect.
Precautions:
• When installing the center speaker on top
of the TV, be sure to secure it with tape or
some other suitable means. Otherwise, the
speaker may fall from the TV due to
external shocks such as earthquakes,
endangering those nearby or damaging
the speaker.
• Make sure that all the bare speaker wire is
twisted together and inserted fully into the
speaker terminal. If any of the bare speaker
wire touches the back panel it may cause
the power to cut off as a safety measure.
• The front, center and surround speakers
supplied with this system are magnetically
shielded. However, depending on the
installation location, color distortion may
occur if the speaker is installed extremely
close to the screen of a television set. If this
case happens, turn the power switch of the
television set OFF, and turn it ON after
15 min. to 30 min. If the problem persists,
place the speaker system away from the
television set.
• The subwoofer is not magnetically shielded
and so should not be placed near a TV or
monitor. Magnetic storage media (such as
floppy discs and tape or video cassettes)
should also not be kept close to the
subwoofer.
• Do not attach the center speaker (only of
the HTZ180DVD) the front (of the HTZ280/
282DVD)/surround speaker (only of the
HTZ282DVD) and subwoofer to a wall or
ceiling. They may fall off and cause injury.
• Do not place the surround speaker on the
top of the front speaker, as it may injure
someone in the event that it falls (only for
the HTZ280DVD).

Singing karaoke
Using the karaoke features you can plug in a
microphone and mix the sound of your own
voice with a backing track.1
You can select a
backing track from audio sources such as CDs,
DVDs, VCDs or USB devices. Adjust the
microphone level relative to the backing track.
1 Plug in the microphone(s).
If you’re only using one mic, plug it into the
MIC (MAIN) jack. The MIC (SUB) jack can be
used only if MIC (MAIN) is also connected.
• If the microphone has an on/off switch,
make sure it’s on.
2 Load a karaoke backing disc.
You can also use tracks on a USB device as
source material for a backing track.
3 Adjust KARAOKE mode settings.
• Press SHIFT+KARAOKE to turn KARAOKE
mode on or off for discs that have vocals on
both Left and Right channels:
KARAOKE (Vocal Fade) – Vocals in the
backing track are partially eliminated.
OFF (default) – Switches the Karaoke mode off.
• Press SHIFT+AUDIO to switch between
audio channels (except Data discs and USB
sources) with discs that have vocal tracks on
only one channel:
Left – Left channel only. Use for tracks that
have a vocal recorded in the right channel.
Right – Right channel only. Use for tracks that
have a vocal recorded in the left channel.
STEREO – Switches the Karaoke mode off.
4 Play the backing track.
5 Adjust the MIC VOL +/– to get the sound
you want. 2
To avoid unpleasant feedback, make sure you
don’t point the microphone(s) at the speakers.3
Changing the vocal mix
Adding some effects to the microphone mix
can sometimes improve the overall sound.4
You can choose between three echo levels.
• To add effects to the microphone mix,
press SHIFT+ECHO.
Pressing repeatedly switches between echo
levels 1 to 3 and off.
Changing the backing track
You may want to lower or raise the pitch of the
backing track to match your vocal range.5
• Press SHIFT+ or SHIFT+ to lower or
raise the pitch of the backing track.
Note
1 • These features are only possible when a microphone is connected. If you try to use SHIFT+KARAOKE, SHIFT+ECHO,
SHIFT+, SHIFT+ or MIC VOL when no mic is connected, a NO MIC error message is displayed. Also note that during DVD
playback, when you connect a mic sound settings are automatically switched to STEREO playback and the player downmixes
multichannel sources to 2.1 channels.
• These features are only available with the DVD/CD or USB input functions.
MAIN SUB
MIC
2 MIC VOL is set to 0 when you remove the microphone, change the function or turn the power off.
3 Depending on the microphone level, the sound of the disc may distort. If this happens, turn down the volume.
4 You cannot adjust SFC modes, tone controls (bass, treble, and bass boost), Extra Power mode, Front Surround mode,
MP3 Expander mode or Voice Enhancer mode when a microphone is plugged in.

for a better quality picture.1
For the connection diagram, see 2 on page 40.
• Use a component video cable to connect
the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT to a set of
component inputs on your TV.
About progressive scan video
Compared to interlace video, progressive scan
video effectively doubles the scanning rate of
the picture, resulting in a very stable, flicker-
free image. Progressive scan video is available
only from the component video output.
Compatibility of this player with
progressive-scan and high-definition TVs.
• This player is compatible with progressive
video Macro Vision System Copy Guard.2
Connecting using HDMI
If you have a HDMI or DVI (with HDCP)
equipped monitor or display, you can connect
it to this player using a commercially available
HDMI cable for high quality digital video.3
For the connection diagram, see 3 on page 40.
• Use an HDMI cable to connect the HDMI
OUT interconnect on this player to an HDMI
interconnect on a HDMI-compatible display.
• The arrow on the cable connector body
should be face down for correct alignment
with the connector on the player.
You can also adjust the HDMI settings for
resolution and color. For more on these
settings see Video Output settings on page 35.
Switching the HDMI audio setting
You can select the system speaker or the TV
through the HDMI to output the audio sound of
the DVD/CD or USB function.4 You cannot use
a number of sound functions of this system
when HDMI audio is set to TV.

Note
1 • The component video output is switchable between interlaced and progressive formats. See Video Output settings on page 35.
• While the player is connected using HDMI cable, the component video output cannot be switched between Interlace and
Progressive formats. When HDMI Resolution is set to 720x480i (NTSC)/720x576i (PAL), Interlace format is automatically
selected, and Progressive format is automatically selected in other settings.
2 Consumers should note that not all high-definition television sets are fully compatible with this product and may cause
artifacts to be displayed in the picture. In case of 525 progressive scan picture problems, it is recommended that the user switch
the connection to the ‘standard definition’ output (Interlace). If there are questions regarding our TV set compatibility with this
model, please contact our customer service center.
3 • An HDMI connection can only be made with DVI-equipped components compatible with both DVI and High Bandwidth
Digital Content Protection (HDCP). If you choose to connect to a DVI connector, you will need a separate adaptor (DVIHDMI)
to do so. A DVI connection, however, does not support audio signals. Consult your local audio dealer for more information.
• Depending on the component you have connected, using a DVI connection may result in unreliable signal transfers.
• When you change the component connected to the HDMI output, you will also need to change the HDMI settings to match
the new component (see Video Output settings on page 35 to do this).
4 It is not possible to switch this setting when KURO LINK setting is ON and flat screen TV is in synchronized amp mode.

About HDMI
HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface)
supports both video and audio on a single
digital connection for use with DVD players,
DTV, set-top boxes, and other AV devices. HDMI
was developed to provide the technologies of
High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection
(HDCP) as well as Digital Visual Interface (DVI)
in one specification. HDCP is used to protect
digital content transmitted and received by DVI-
compliant displays.
HDMI has the capability to support standard,
enhanced, or high-definition video plus
standard to multichannel surround-sound
audio. HDMI features include uncompressed
digital video, a bandwidth of up to five
gigabytes per second (with HDTV signals), one
connector (instead of several cables and
connectors), and communication between the
AV source and AV devices such as DTVs.
HDMI, the HDMI logo and High-Definition
Multimedia Interface are trademarks or
registered trademarks of HDMI Licensing, LLC.
Connecting external antennas
For an external AM antenna, use 5 m to 6 m of
vinyl-insulated wire and set up either indoors or
outdoors. Leave the loop antenna connected.
Only use the included AM loop antenna.
For an external FM antenna, use a PAL
connector to hook up an external FM antenna.

Using and taking care of discs
Handling discs
Hold the disc by its edges when handling so as
not to leave fingerprints, dirt or scratches on
either side of the disc. Damaged or dirty discs
can affect playback performance.
If a disc becomes marked with fingerprints,
dust, etc., clean using a soft, dry cloth.
Wipe lightly from the center of the disc using
straight strokes. Don’t wipe the disc surface
with circular strokes.
If necessary, use a cloth soaked in alcohol, or a
commercially available CD/DVD cleaning kit to
clean a disc more thoroughly. Never use
benzine, thinner or other cleaning agents such
as those designed for cleaning vinyl records.
Storing discs
Avoid leaving discs in excessively cold, humid,
or hot environments (including under direct
sunlight). Don’t glue paper or put stickers onto
the disc, or use a pencil, ball-point pen or other
sharp-tipped writing instrument. These could
all damage the disc.
