UNPACKING AND INSTALLATION
Congratulations on Your Purchase!
Your new high fidelity receiver is designed to deliver
maximum enjoyment and years of trouble free service.
Please take a few moments to read this manual
thoroughly. It will explain the features and operation of
your unit and help ensure a trouble free installation.
Please unpack your unit carefully. We recommend that
you save the carton and packing material. They will be
helpful if you ever need to move your unit and may be
required if you ever need to return it for service. Your unit
is designed to be placed in a horizontal position and it is
important to allow at least two inches of space behind
your unit for adequate ventilation and cabling
convenience.
To avoid damage, never place the unit near radiators, in
front of heating vents, in direct sunlight, or in excessively
humid or dusty locations. Connect your complementary
components as illustrated in the following section.
FOR U.S.A.
Note to CATV System Installer: This reminder is
provided to call the CATV system installer's attention
to Article 820-40 of the NEC that provides guidelines
for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that
the cable ground shall be connected to the
grounding system of the building, as close to the
point of cable entry as practical.

FCC INFORMATION
This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits
are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates, uses and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed
and used in accordance with the instructions, may
cause harmful interference to radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will
not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment
does cause harmful interference to radio or
television reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the user is
encouraged to try to correct the interference by one
or more of the following measures:
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment
and receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit
different from that to which the receiver is
connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV
technician for help.
CAUTION: Any changes or modifications in
construction of this device which are not expressly
approved by the party responsible for compliance
could void the user's authority to operate the
equipment.
FOR U.S.A. AND CANADA ...............................120 V
FOR OTHER COUNTRIES...................... 110 V/220 V
FOR YOUR SAFETY
FOR YOUR SAFETY
Units shipped to the U.S.A. and Canada are designed
for operation on 120 V AC only.
Units shipped to countries other than the above
countries are equipped with an AC voltage selector
switch on the rear panel. Refer to the following
paragraph for the proper setting of this switch.
Observe all safety precautions with use of a
polarized AC plug.
However, some products may be supplied with a
nonpolarized plug.
AC VOLTAGE SELECTION
This unit operates on 110-220 V AC. The AC voltage
selector switch on the rear panel is set to the voltage
that prevails in the area to which the unit is shipped.
Before connecting the power cord to your AC outlet,
make sure that the setting position of this switch
matches your line voltage. If not, it must be set to
your voltage in accordance with the following
direction.
CAUTION : To prevent electric shock, match wide
blade of plug to wide slot, fully insert.
FOR EUROPE AND AUSTRALIA .........230 V/240 V
FOR YOUR SAFETY
Units shipped to Australia are designed for operation
on 240 V AC only.
To ensure safe operation, the three-pin plug supplied
must be inserted only into a standard three-pin
power point which is effectively earthed through the
normal household wiring. Extension cords used with
the equipment must be three-core and be correctly
wired to provide connection to earth.
Improper extension cords are a major cause of
fatalities. The fact that the equipment operates
satisfactorily does not imply that the power point is
earthed and that the installation is completely safe.
For your safety, if in any doubt about the effective
earthing of the power point, consult a qualified
electrician.
PAN-EUROPEAN UNIFIED VOLTAGE
All units are suitable for use on supplies 230-240 V
AC.

When making system connections, please be certain the AC cord is not plugged into an AC outlet.
When making connections between components, please be sure to connect the white RCA plugs to the L(left) and the red
RCA plugs to the R (right) jacks respectively.
Change the position of the FM indoor antenna until you get the best possible reception of your favorite FM stations.
A 75 ohm outdoor FM antenna may be used to further improve the reception. Disconnect the indoor antenna before
connecting the outdoor antenna.
Place the AM loop antenna as far as possible from the receiver, TV set, speaker cords and the AC input cord and set if to a
direction it to a for the best reception.
If the reception is poor with the AM loop antenna, an AM outdoor antenna can be used with the AM loop antenna.
Make connections firmly and correctly. If not, it can cause loss of sound, noise or damage to the receiver.
If the electricity fails or the AC input cord is left unplugged for more than 2 weeks, the memorized contents will be lost.
Memorize them again.

Operations
SPEAKER MODE
Adjusting the speaker settings

This receiver is equipped with circuitry that allows
the use of a wide range of speaker systems.
This circuitry works by redirecting the bass
frequencies or the entire channel to speakers that are
capable of reproducing them.
When a large or full range speaker capable of deep
bass response is used for one of the channels, that
channel should be set to L.
When a small or satellite speaker with limited bass
capability is used, that channel should be set to S.
Deep bass from that channel will be redirected to the
main left and right speakers or to the subwoofer.
When there is no speaker available, that channel
should be set to N. All the information in that
channel will be redirected to other available speakers.
Each time this button is pressed, one of 11 different

Your receiver allows you to optimize the arrival time of
the sound from your speakers. This can help focus the
audio image and add enjoyment to your home theater
experience.
Measure the distance from the prime listening position
to each of the speakers to the nearest foot.
-In the Dolby Digital mode, the optimum performance
of your system occurs when the sound from all five
speakers arrives at your primary listening position at
the same time. If all speakers are equidistant from the
main listening position, set the following delay.
Center delay time : 0 mS, Rear delay time : 0 mS
If the center speaker is closer to your prime listening
position than the average distance to the left and right
main speakers add 1 mS of center channel delay for
each foot of difference. The maximum is 5 mS.
If the surround speakers are closer to your main
listening position than the main left and right speakers
add 5 mS of surround channel delay for each 5 feet of
difference. The maximum is 15 mS.
-In Dolby Pro Logic and the three DSP modes rear
channel delay can be adjusted to add spaciousness to
the presentation and to minimize any sibilant leakage
into the surround channels.
If the surround speakers are the same distance from
your primary listening position as your main left and
right front speakers, set the Rear Delay time at 15 mS.
If the surround speakers are further from your listening
position than the main left and right front speakers, set
the rear delay at 10 mS.
If the surround speakers are closer to your main
listening position than the main left and right speakers
add 5 mS of surround channel delay for each 5 feet of
difference. The maximum is 30 mS.
