7-Channel
Multi-Amplifier
To play the game
System
To provide reinforcement for the ultra-low frequencies, in addition
to the Left/Right 2-channel amplifier used to reproduce mid-tohigh-range frequencies, this system incorporates a second L/R
2-channel amplifier just for reproduction of ultra-low frequencies
-- making the front speakers, in effect, a 4-channel amplifier
system. Therefore, this has a total of 7-channel amplifiers in the
Multi Amplifire System (4-channel amplifiers in the front speakers
+ a L/R 2-channel amplifire in the surround speakers + a 1channel amplifier in the center speaker). By utilizing discrete
amplifiers for mid to-high-frequencies and low frequencies, highquality sonic reproduction that is virtually free from distortion can
be realized.
This Multi Amplifier System, which utilizes independent circuitry
for the different frequency ranges, enables superb sonic
reproduction free from distortion.
Built-in
Subwoofer
System
The built-in subwoofer System has a separate subwoofer cavity
area that is part of the loudspeaker cabinet structure, which acts
as a sonic filter to cut distortion components. (Inthe Multi Amplifier
System, the ultra-low frequency signals transmitted from their
own independent amplifier are reproduced in this area.) This
separate construction gives a clear, rich definition to bass
reproduction and it can realize clear, well-defined mid-to-high
frequency signals.
And AIWA's built-in subwoofer system incorporates a subwoofer
capable of powerful, satisfying bass performance with true stereo
separation.

The DOLBY PRO LOGIC feature and the center and rear
speakers (standard) assure full-scale home theater sound. When
playing back laser discs or video software that have been
recorded in Dofby Surround, astonishingly
realistic sound
surrounds the listener to create a new level of audio/visual
entertainment.
Independent control of the five sound channels allows the listener
to enjoy the same type of sound reproduction experienced in
movie theaters. Voices are reproduced in the front and center
sound field, while ambient sounds like cars and crowds are
reproduced on all sides of the listener for an incredibly lifelike
audio/video experience. Please read the following carefully to
"tune" the system's output to match the characteristics of your
listening space.
Check the following:
• Before using the DOLBY PRO LOGIC, adjust the proper
balance of speaker sound levels.
• Make sure the supplied speakers are properly connected and
positioned. (See pages 4-6)
• Make sure the TV set and video unit are properly connected.
(See pages 4 and 5)
• Make sure the laser disc, video tape, etc., support

The unit is equipped with a built-in test signal generator called a
noise sequencer for easy balance adjustment of all 5 channels.
The sequencer outputs a noise signal that "travels" from channel
to channel, enabling the simple adjustment of sound level to
achieve, at the listening position, the same apparent loudness
from each channel.
Use the remote control.

the noise signal together. However, only the sound level of one
surround speaker displayed as "S-L" or "S-R" can be adjusted.
• When the sequencer outputs a noise signal, a clicking sound
might be heard from the speakers due to the characteristics of
the circuit. This is not malfunction.
About the channels
The left and right front speakers create the stereo effect.
The center speaker helps achieve precise sound positioning
over a broad sound field.
The rear-mounted surround speakers enhance the "depth" of
the sound field.

damage the finish of the unit.
To clean the tape heads
When the tape heads are dirty;
- high frequency sound is not emitted
- the sound is not adequately high
- the sound is off-balance
- the tape cannot be erased
- the tape cannot be recorded on
After every 10 hours of use, clean the tape heads with a head
cleaning cassette.
Refer to the instructions of the cleaning cassette for details.
To demagnetize the tape heads
The tape heads may become magnetized after long-term use.
This may narrow the output range of recorded tapes and increase
noise.
After every 20 to 30 hours of use, demagnetize the tape heads
with a separately sold demagnetizing cassette.
Refer to the instructions of the demagnetizing cassette for details.
Care of discs
• When a disc becomes dirty, wipe the disc from the center out
with a cleaning cloth.
• After playing a disc, store the disc in its case. Do not leave the
disc in places that are hot or humid.
Care of tapes
• Store tapes in their cases after use.
• Do not leave tapes near magnets, motors, television sets, or
any source of magnetism.This will downgrade the sound quality
and cause noise.
• Do not expose tapes to direct sunlight, or leave them in a car
parked in direct sunlight.
