Placing the system
Installation image:
Notes:
● As the sound from the system is omni-directional, you
can place the speaker anywhere you like. However, it is
recommended to place it as close to the TV as possible.
● The front panel of the speaker is not removable.
● If the Amplifier is wall mounted behind the TV, make
sure the distance between the TV and Amplifier are not
less than 8" (20cm) to avoid wireless interruption.

not make a mistake when
connecting the right and left
speakers. The right speaker is the
one on the right side when you face
the unit.
● Do not let the bare speaker wires
touch each other.

Connecting to TV with HDMI (For HT-SL77)
Caution:
● Turn off all other equipment before making this connection.
Notes:
● Set the TV at low volume before turning on the system.
● GAIN knob is invalid during DIGITAL (HDMI) function.
● Make sure to set the correct input selector on the Amplifier to a preferred
connection before using any of these methods.

This unit supports HDMI which enables ARC (Audio Return Channel).
To enable ARC make sure to use High Speed HDMI™ cable (with ARC).
This ARC feature requires TV that supports ARC. Refer the operation manual of the TV to determine which terminal supports ARC.
To listen to the sound from a non-ARC-compatible TV, connect the audio output from TV to this system’s AUDIO IN (TV) terminal. (refer
page 12)
● This unit can be operated (power on/off or volume up/down) via a TV or similar component which supports HDMI CEC (Consumer
Electronics Control). If this does not work, it does not mean this system is faulty. Refer to the operation manual of the respective component
on how to activate the CEC.
Example: Go to the Menu of the component to search and enable the CEC. Different brands may have different naming for the CEC. For
SHARP LCD TV, it is named as AQUOS LINK.
● To listen to the sound from this system, you will need to adjust the speaker output settings within the TV menu.
For details, refer to the operation manual of the TV.
● If you are unable to select external speaker setting from the TV menu (E.g. For SHARP LCD TV, it is named as AQUOS AUDIO SP),
turn the CEC OFF and ON again.
● Make sure the LCD TV Audio output setting is set to PCM, not other formats such as Dolby Digital, DTS, etc.
● To enjoy 3D images, this system must be connected to a 3D-compatible TV and components (3D BD player, etc.) via High Speed HDMI
cables. Put on the 3D glasses, otherwise 3D images may not be viewed properly.

HT-SL72 / HT-SL77 ZB271
General Control
Make sure to enable the HDMI CEC when making HDMI connection. For details, refer to the operation manual
of the TV. (HT-SL77)
Notes:
To turn the power on
● If a device such as microwave oven, wireless LAN card,
Plug the AC power cord into a AC outlet, the stand-by
indicator turns RED.
The Amplifier will automatically power on if:
DIGITAL (HDMI) function: TV or similar component which
supports HDMI CEC, is turned on. (HT-SL77 only)
ANALOG function: Audio signal is detected from Audio
input.
The Amplifier stand-by indicator will turn BLUE if TV signal
is detected.
Notes:
● Make sure to select function (refer Input Selector) for a
preferred connection.
● A slight audio delay after TV is turned ON does not
mean that the system is faulty. This is normal.
● “AQUOS speaker is enabled” message will be
displayed if SHARP LCD TV does not detect HT-SL77
during power on. However the message “AQUOS audio
with AQUOS LINK is enabled” will be displayed soon as
HT-SL77 is detected. These messages may vary for
other TV model.
Connecting the wireless Subwoofer
The Amplifier and Subwoofer will link automatically
(wirelessly) when turned on as it is already pre-linked at
the factory. If the link cannot be established, please set the
connection by the following method.
1. Press and hold the PAIRING button on the Amplifier for
more than 3 seconds.
2. Within 2 minutes, press and hold the PAIRING button on
the Subwoofer for more than 3 seconds
● During pairing process, the Amplifier and Subwoofer
indicator will blink in BLUE for a few seconds.
● The Amplifier and Subwoofer will be linked (connected)
if both unit indicators turn BLUE.
Caution:
● Keep the Subwoofer away from water and moisture.
● To get the optimum listening performance, make sure
the area around the Sound Bar and Subwoofer is clear
of any obstacles.
Input Selector (HT-SL77)
Turn the INPUT switch on the Amplifier to select the
function mode.
DIGITAL: Select when using Digital (HDMI) connection.
ANALOG: Select when using Analog (Audio In) connection.
Audio Return Channel (ARC)
(HT-SL77)
The Audio Return Channel (ARC) enables an HDMI ARCcapable TV to send the audio stream to the HDMI OUT
terminal of the receiver. To use this function, your TV must
support the ARC. Make sure the TV Audio output setting is
set to PCM, not other formats such as Dolby Digital, DTS,
etc. For details, refer to the operation manual of the TV.
Volume
Subwoofer
DIGITAL (HDMI) function: Volume can only be controlled
from your TV via HDMI CEC. (HT-SL77 only)
ANALOG function: Turn GAIN (AUDIO IN) knob toward
MAX./MIN. to increase or decrease the volume.

Bluetooth device or any other device that uses the
same 2.4GHz frequency near the system, some sound
interruption may be heard due to interference.
● The transmission distance of the wireless signal
between the Subwoofer and Amplifier is about 32 feet
(10m), but may vary depending on your operating
environment. If a steel-concrete or metallic wall is
between the Subwoofer and the Amplifier, the system
may not operate at all, because the wireless signal
cannot penetrate metal.
This unit will automatically go to stand-by mode (both unit
indicators turns RED) if:
DIGITAL (HDMI) function: TV or similar component which
supports HDMI CEC, is turned off. (HT-SL77 only)
ANALOG function: No signal from Audio input is detected
after 20 minutes.
