INSTALLATION
SETTING THE SWITCHES FOR THE MULTI-VOLTAGE MODEL ONLY
TWO VOLTAGE SELECTOR SWITCHES
(Not available on U.S. and Canadian models)
Only multi-voltage models are provided with these
switches. U.S. and Canadian models are not provided
with these switches. Mains voltages in Saudi Arabia are
127 V and 220 V only. Never use this model with the 110
V setting in Saudi Arabia.
The line voltage selector switches are on the rear panel. Before
your model is shipped from the factory, these switches are set
to the power requirements of the destination. Check that they
are set properly before plugging the power cord into the
household wall socket. If the voltage is not properly set or if you
move to an area where the voltage requirements differ, adjust
the selector switches as follows.
1. Use a medium-size screwdriver.
2. First, insert the screwdriver in the groove of the voltage
selector at the right, and adjust so that the tip of the groove
points to the voltage value of your area.
3. Next, insert the screwdriver in the groove of the voltage
selector at the left and adjust until the voltage is the same as
at the right.

playback. If possible, it is better to install it in the B position.
A
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.

7 OUTDOOR FM ANTENNA
The main advantage of FM over AM is the quality of the
broadcast signal. In order to benefit fully from the high signal
quality of FM broadcasts, it is recommended that a specialpurpose FM antenna be installed. In weak signal areas, a multielement (3-, 5-, or 7-element) antenna should be used.

7 EXTERNAL AM ANTENNA
If it is not possible to obtain adequate AM reception even by
changing the orientation of the AM loop antenna, a separate
indoor antenna, or an outdoor antenna should be installed.
INDOOR AM ANTENNA
Use a vinyl insulated wire (5 — 6 m, 17 — 20 feet), and connect
one end to the AM antenna terminal and affix the other end to
the wall or ceiling, as high as possible.
OUTDOOR AM ANTENNA
If reception quality is not improved sufficiently even when an
indoor antenna is used, a vinyl insulated wire should be installed
outside and fixed in place.
NOTE:

CONNECTIONS
SPEAKER SYSTEM CONNECTIONS
You can set this unit to match the requirements and
specifications of your stereo system’s speakers (whether or
not center speaker(s), rear speakers or a sub-woofer are
used, speaker size, etc.) to assure optimum sound quality.
Before using, perform settings in the SPEAKER MODE (refer
to page 29).
NOTE:
Use speakers with an impedance of 8 Ω to 16 Ω.
When connecting speakers to the FRONT SPEAKERS B terminals,
the procedure is the same as that used for connecting speakers
to the FRONT SPEAKERS A terminals.
NOTE:
÷ Do not allow any of the cord’s conductors to protrude from the
terminals or touch any other conductors. Malfunctioning or
breakdowns may occur when conductors come into contact
with each other.
÷ If you have one pair of speakers only, connect it to front
speaker terminals A or B.
÷ Be sure to connect single rear speaker to the L channel.
NOTE:
This unit does not feature conventional switching between
NORMAL / WIDE / PHANTOM center modes.

APPENDIX B: SURROUND EFFECT
This unit has a built-in surround processor for adding presence
and an expansive effect to the sound.
5 Mode Selection with DSP (Digital Signal Processor):
JAZZ:
This gives you the sound field of a jazz club.
DANCE:
A “hot” high-energy sound, with extra reverb for greater
ambience.
SIMULATED SURROUND:
The “SIMULATED SURROUND” creates the effects of
reverberated and reflected sound from the walls and ceiling
similar to a concert hall. These sound-effects added to the actual
sound from the source make you feel as if you were in a more
expanded space. The different ranges of the expanded space
can be set by the REAR DELAY TIME button.
The “SIMULATED SURROUND” also gives effects on monaural
sources by outputting the added reverberated sound from the
rear speakers while outputting the actual source sound from the
front speakers. Turn on the “SIMULATED SURROUND” for a
monaural source to gain effective surround playback.
HALL:
You can enjoy a convincing hall sound.
THEATER:
This gives you the sound field of an atmosphere of a movie
theater.
÷ You can use these five modes in combination with AC-3 and
PRO-LOGIC.
DOLBY 3CH LOGIC:
Select “NONE” with the SPEAKER MODE REAR SPEAKER button,
press the DOLBY PRO-LOGIC button ON and DOLBY 3CH LOGIC
is selected.
Combining the rear speaker signal with that of the front speakers
results in your being able to enjoy a regenerated sound field
which has comparatively more presence and a more expansive
feeling from the front 3 channels (front L, front R, and center
speakers) than that of ordinary stereo regeneration. DOLBY 3CH
LOGIC can be used with stereo sources not encoded with
DOLBY SURROUND.
DOLBY AC-3:
Choose this setting for movies and music (especially video
DOLBY SURROUND
discs bearing the
mark) playback. The
LaserDisc player’s AC-3 RF OUT jack must be connected to
this unit’s AC-3 RF IN jack.

AC-3 is the compression format used when recording 6-channel
audio onto the digital track of film for the SR D (Surround
Digital) movie theater surround system. To enable AC-3 to
reproduce the same multi-track audio in the home on laserdisc,
the six independent audio channels compressed by the AC-3
system are recorded on the right analog stereo channel. Among
these six channels, the sub-woofer signal (SW) is exclusively for
low-range reproduction. Since this SW signal is not really
necessary as far as the total system is concerned, the number of
channels is expressed as 5.1.
DOLBY PRO-LOGIC SURROUND:
Choose this setting for movies and music (especially Video
DOLBY SURROUND mark)
Discs and video tapes bearing the
playback.
DOLBY PRO-LOGIC SURROUND continuously detects the size
and direction of the dominant signal and cancels undesirable
crosstalk, thereby providing signal emphasis.
It makes you clearly perceive the directional source of the
music. Real flow of sound also can be re-created naturally using
this feature. You can feel as if being in an outstanding and
expansive sound field.
DOLBY SURROUND
Even if the video recordings do not bear the
mark, some of them may be Dolby Surround encoded.
Choose the SIMULATED SURROUND mode if the source sound
signal is mono. Little or no sound will be heard from the
surround speakers if the DOLBY PRO-LOGIC SURROUND mode
is selected.

APPENDIX C: DOLBY AC-3 SURROUND
Dolby Laboratories spearheaded home theater with the introduction of Dolby Surround, and then defined it with the follow-up format
Dolby Pro-Logic Surround. They have continued the evolution of home theater with the introduction of Dolby AC-3 Pro-Logic, a MultiChannel Digital delivery system. Just as Dolby Surround found it’s beginnings in the cinema, so does AC-3. This advanced multi-channel
digital sound, although originally conceived for and later chosen for HDTV, made it practical to implement in the cinema because it
enabled the film to retain the analog soundtrack. With backwards compatibility a priority so the film could be played in any cinema, it
was decided to place the new digital optical track between the sprocket holes, which was a key factor in defining its maximum practical
bit rate (see illustration).

ENCODING
AC-3 IN THE CINEMA
In 1992 Dolby Surround Digital, the film sound format with AC-3 as its keystone, made its debut in the cinema. In less than three years,
more than 300 feature films had been released in this new format, and nearly 1,500 cinemas had been equipped for playback of the digital
soundtrack. Furthermore, AC-3 can now be brought to the consumer’s home today via the LaserDisc.
Traditional Pulse Code Modulation (PCM), which is utilized on compact discs and LD’s 4-channel matrixed digital audio tracks, uses a
16-bit word to “describe” the sampled point in the original analog wave. By sampling this analog wave 44,100 times per second for each
channel, the system will yield a dynamic range of 96 dB from the loudest sound to the noise floor. However, this process creates an
immense amount of data which is too large for multi-channel systems. Thus, a form of data reduction must be employed to reduce the
total amount of information without serious degradation of the sound quality — hence the introduction of AC-3.
The premise of AC-3 is simple, it reproduces the full bit resolution (16-bit) when a lower resolution will not result in the same sound
quality. However, when a lower resolution is acceptable, it will utilize this lower resolution opting instead for psychoacoustical theories
and digital noise filtering technologies to help insure acceptable sound quality.

<ARB7050>
APPENDIX C: DOLBY AC-3 SURROUND
THE LASER DISC FORMAT
The one major concern when the idea of incluiding another form of audio on a laser disc was .... Backwards Compatibility. It would not
do the laser disc format any justice, especially in a time of growing acceptability, to change the audio system without considering those
consumers that had already purchased a laser disc player. Thus to maintain backward compatibility, the AC-3 encoding was deemed
to be stored in one of the existing analog tracks.

The above diagram shows the format of the AC-3 Pro-Logic laser disc. The PCM audio track, containing the 4-channel matrixed digital
soundtrack, was fully maintained for continued use in laser disc players with digital capabilities. As mentioned above, one of the analog
channels will now contain the AC-3 encoding, while the other analog channel will contain a mono analog soundtrack, which still provides
backwards compatibility with those pre-1984 laser disc players (1984 was the year we introduced an LD player with digital capabilities).
THE ADVANTAGES OF AC-3 OVER PRO-LOGIC
AC-3 is called a 5.1-channel system because it provides 5 independent channels (left, right, center, left surround, and right surround),
all reproducing a 20 – 20,000 Hz range. In addition, the system provides for an independent sub-woofer channel, which is called a low
frequency effects channel. Use of the low frequency effect channel is optional, since the 5 channels provide a full frequency bandwidth,
but available for those consumer wishing to include a sub-woofer for thunderous bass reproduction. Furthermore, AC-3 provides
improved channels separation, multi-directional discrete capability, and increased sound-design creative flexibility (for the movie
makers). Below highlights some of the other advantages of Dolby AC-3:

LISTENING
For A Lifetime
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you’ve just
purchased is only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now it’s
time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement
your equipment offers. This manufacturer and the Electronic
Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group want you
to get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe
level. One that lets the sound come through loud and clear
without annoying blaring or distortion—and, most importantly,
without affecting your sensitive hearing.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort
level” adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds
“normal” can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing.
Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level
BEFORE your hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
÷ Start your volume control at a low setting.
÷ Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably
and clearly, and without distortion.
Used wisely, your new sound equipment will provide a
lifetime of fun and enjoyment. Since hearing damage from loud
noise is often undetectable until it is too late, this manufacturer
and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics
Group recommend you avoid prolonged exposure to excessive
noise. This list of sound levels is included for your protection.
