Welcome...…
Warning
And thank you for purchasing this Emerson Compact
Audio/Video System. This state of the art system includes
everything you need to experience digital video and audio
in the comfort of your own living room. The only thing you
need to add is your own TV. We have designed this
system to be easy to set up, and even easier to use. But
please, review this manual before you operate your
system; have it handy while you are setting the system up;
and keep it available for future reference, or in the unlikely
event that you encounter any unexpected problems. We
have tried to keep this manual as simple as possible. It
begins with a description of the important controls on
the main unit and the remote. It then explains how to
connect the speakers, your TV, and optional external
sources to the main unit, and then how to operate the
DVD/CD player and the AM/FM Stereo Receiver. If you
follow the instructions carefully you can have the system
up and operating in less than an hour.
To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not
expose the unit to rain or moisture.
To avoid electrical shock, do not open the
cabinet.
Refer servicing to qualified service
personnel only.
All of the optional system settings have been preset at our
factory for correct operation of the system in North America.
All you have to do is insert a disk, sit back, and enjoy a great
AUDIO/VIDEO experience.
Eventually you may want to change some of the optional
settings. A description of all the optional settings, and
instructions for changing them, is found in the second half of
the manual.
This system was designed to provide you with many
years of reliable operation with a minimum of care and
maintenance. Every component in your system was in perfect
working condition when it left our factory. If you experience
any problems with the set up or operation of this system
please review the Trouble Shooting Guide at the end of this
manual before you contact your dealer or the Emerson
Customer Service Department.
The AC cord must only be changed at
qualified service facility.

In many listening situations, it is objectionable to allow
the sound to become very loud, and thus the loudest
sounds must be compressed downwards in level. Likewise,
the very quiet sounds would be inaudible and must be
brought upwards in level to be heard. Dolby Digital satisfies
these needs through the dynamic range controlling.
Select the dynamic range compression to fit the individual
listening situation of the audience. The variable range is
from, FULL, 3/4 to 1/4, or OFF.
FULL: Audio with fully compressed dynamic range.
3/4~1/4: Audio with partially compressed dynamic range.
OFF: Audio with uncompressed dynamic range.

Path: Preferences
Parental
Default Setting: No Parental
Many DVD movie discs contain Motion Picture Association rating codes. This Audio/Video system recognizes the codes on
those discs and provides a method for you to prevent children from viewing films that are unsuitable or objectionable.
Important: If a disc does not include the MPAA coding it will play on this system regardless of the Parental Control level setting.
The default setting is “ADULT” which means that any Region 1 disc will play on this system. The optional settings range
from “1 KID SAF” to “ADULT”.
For example if you change the Parental Control level setting to “3 PG” (Parental Guidance) the system will refuse to play
a DVD movie disc which is MPAA coded higher than level 3, and the words “PARENTAL VIOLATION” will appear on the screen.
When you change the Parental Control Level setting the system will ask you for a 4-digit password before making the change.
The Password Verify Page will appear as shown below.
The default password for this system is “1234”. Use the remote control number keys to enter “1 – 2 – 3 – 4” and then press the
ENTER button. The Parental Control level is now changed. You will need to enter the password every time you change the
Parental Control level setting.

Navigation buttons, or the number buttons, on the remote
control to begin playback on any Title or Chapter.
(A word about "Titles". When you buy or rent a DVD movie
disc you may think that because there is only one movie
on the disc, the disc contains only one title. However most
DVD movie discs contain multiple "Titles" even though they
contain only one movie. The opening credits may be Title 1,
any Coming Attractions or Previews on the disc are also
considered "Titles", any Special Features or Bonus Materials
included on the disc are also considered as "Titles". And of
course, the movie itself is a separate "Title". Some "Titles"
contain only one chapter. Longer "Titles" such as the movie
itself contain multiple chapters.)

button to begin playback at the selected point.
