A FM Indoor Antenna
In an area with strong FM signals, the T-type FM antenna
provided with this unit is sufficient.
Extend the antenna into a “T” shape and connect the two
wires at the base of the “T” to the provided matching
transformer, as shown.
After completing connection, plug the transformer into the
“FM 75Ω” socket. Extend the top of the “T” and tune the
tuner to your favorite station (see page 31). Adjust the
antenna in a suitable location like a window frame or wall
until the reception is best and then affix the antenna in that
position using thumb tacks, push pins or any other
suitable means.
B FM Outdoor Antenna
In an area where FM signals are weak, it will be necessary
to use an 75-ohm unbalanced-type outdoor FM antenna.
Generally, a 3-element antenna will be sufficient; if you
live in an area where the FM signals are particularly weak,
it may be necessary to use one with 5 or more elements.
B
•Disconnect the FM indoor antenna when using an outdoor
antenna.

Speaker Connections
Caution:
To avoid damaging the speakers with a sudden high-level
signal, be sure to switch the power off before connecting
the speakers.
Caution:
The metal portions of the two separate wires should not
touch or an electrical short can occur. Shorted wires can
create a fire hazard or induce a failure in your equipment.
How to connect:
Check the impedance of your speakers. Connect speaker
with an impedance of 6 ohms or more.
1. Turn the terminal cap counterclockwise to loosen it. The
speaker terminal caps cannot be fully removed from the
base.
The black speaker terminals are
(negative).
Generally, the
side of the speaker cable is marked to
make it distinguishable from the
side of the cable.
Connect this marked side to the
terminal and the
unmarked side to the black
terminal.
2. Insert the wire into the terminal fully and turn the terminal
cap clockwise to securely connect it:
Prepare the speaker cables for connection by stripping off
approximately 10 mm or less of the outer insulation.
(Removing too much insulation may lead to a short circuit if
the bared wired should come in contact with each other.)
Twist the strands of the stripped wires tightly together :
Make sure none of the wire insulation is under the terminal,
only the bare, stripped wire.
3. Make sure it is fastened firmly by pulling the cable lightly.

Positioning of the Speakers
The positioning of speakers differs according to the size
and acoustics of the listening room. While actually listening
to a program source, try various speaker positions to
determine which layout provides the best surround effect.
• Ideally, position all the speakers in a circle, with the same
distance from your listening position.
• Place the speakers connected to “L” to your left, and “R” to
your right.
A Front speakers

C Surround Left and Right speakers
Install these speakers above the level of the listener’s ears,
directly to the left and right (or slightly behind) of your
listening position.
D
D Surround Back speaker
Place the surround back speaker at the back of the listening
position facing the front at a slightly higher position than the
surround left and right speakers. Point slightly downward.
E Subwoofer
Reproduces powerful and deep bass sounds.
Use a sub-woofer with built-in amplifier referred to as a

Surround Mode 3
Surround Mode 4
DTS (DTS Digital Surround)
DTS NEO:6
During playback of a DVD disc recorded in DTS format, the
surround mode is set to DTS automatically.
With the high precision digital matrix decoder used for DTSES Matrix 6.1, DTS NEO:6 gives you 6.1 multi-channel
surround sound from any stereo source.
• DTS NEO:6 will not work on monaural source.
DTS Digital Surround delivers up to 5.1 channels with lower
audio compression than Dolby Digital. It provides the clarity
and dynamics of the original master soundtrack.
DTS NEO:6 Cinema
This mode is optimized for movies.
Decoding is performed with emphasis on separation
performance to achieve the same atmosphere with 2channel sources as with 6.1-channel sources.
DTS-ES (Extended Surround)
This is a new multi channel digital signal format that greatly
improves the 360-degree surround impression and space
expression thanks to further expanded surround signals.
This format is compatible with the conventional DTS format.
In addition to the 5.1 channels of DTS, DTS-ES also offers
the surround back (sometimes also referred to as “surround
center”) channel for surround playback with a total of 6.1
channels. For the optimum playback of DTS-ES, you need
6 speakers and a powered sub-woofer.
DTS NEO:6 Music
This mode is suitable for music.
The front left and front right signals bypass the decoder and
are played directly so there is no loss of sound quality, and
the effect of the surround signals from the center, surround
left, surround right and surround back channels adds a
natural sense of expansion to the sound field.
• The surround back channel information is matrixed into the
surround left and right channels. When played with 5
speakers, the surround back channel signals are output
from the surround left and right speakers so that none of
the signal components are lost.
Dolby Digital
During playback of a DVD disc recorded in DOLBY
DIGITAL format, the surround mode is set to DOLBY
DIGITAL or DOLBY DIGITAL EX automatically.
There are two formats for DTS-ES:
Dolby Digital delivers up to 5 totally discrete, full frequency
audio channels (front left and right, center, and surround left
and right), plus 0.1 channel called LFE (Low-Frequency
Effects). LFE delivers a separate non-directional bass
signal to the sub-woofer for more dynamic deep bass sound
effects.
DTS-ES Discrete 6.1
Because the signals for 6.1 channels (including the
surround back channel) are fully independent, it is possible
to achieve a sense that the acoustic image are moving
about freely among the background sounds surrounding the
listener from 360 degrees.
Dolby Digital Surround EX
DTS-ES Matrix 6.1
With this format, the additional surround back channel
signals undergo matrix encoding and are input to the
surround left and surround right channels beforehand.
During playback, they are decoded to the surround left,
surround right and surround back channels.
This mode creates the back (sometimes also referred to as
“surround center”) signals from the surround left and right
signals in Dolby Digital 5.1 channel source using a matrix
decoder and provides 6.1 channel surround playback. With
this additional channel, you can experience more dynamic
and realistic moving sound.
When DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 or Matrix 6.1 sources are
decoded with a DTS-ES decoder, the format is
automatically detected upon decoding and the optimum
surround mode is selected.
• As the surround back channel is matrix-encoded onto the
left and right surround channels, no information is lost when
played with 5 speakers.
• When Dolby Digital EX sources are decoded with a Dolby
Digital EX decoder, the format is automatically detected
upon decoding and the Dolby Digital EX mode is selected.
However, some Dolby Digital EX sources may be detected
as Dolby Digital sources. In this case, the Dolby Digital EX
mode should be selected manually to play these sources.
27
Surround Mode 5
Surround Mode 6
THEATER
Dolby Pro Logic IIx and Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic IIx technology processes any native stereo
or 5.1 signal into a 6.1- or 7.1-channel output, creating a
seamless, natural surround soundfield that immerses you in
the entertainment experience.
This mode provides a three dimensional surround effect
similar to that of movie theater.
HALL
This mode is suitable for orchestral music such as classical
music or opera.
Dolby Pro Logic II technology gives you 5.1-channel
surround sound from any stereo program material, as well
as Dolby Surround encoded material.
STADIUM
This mode provides the expansive sound field to achieve
the true stadium effect when watching baseball or
soccer games.
• When the surround back speaker is set to “None”, Dolby
Pro Logic II appears instead of Dolby Pro Logic IIx.
MOVIE mode:
This mode is optimized for movies or Dolby Surround
encoded materials. This mode is also appropriate for use
with video games.
MUSIC mode:
The Music mode creates a rich and enveloping surround
ambience from stereo sources such as music CDs.
Music mode also features three additional user controls:
Dolby Center Width adjusts the balance of the main
vocals in the center and front channels.
Dolby Panorama creates a seamless, wraparound
surround effect.
Dolby Dimension creates a deeper or shallower surround
sound field.
• DOLBY PRO LOGIC IIx and DOLBY PRO LOGIC II will not
work on monaural source.
Dolby Pro Logic
Dolby Pro Logic is a matrix decoder that decodes the four
channels of surround sound (front left, center, front right
and surround) that have been encoded onto the stereo
soundtracks of Dolby Surround encoded material such as
VHS movies. The surround channel is monaural, but is
played through two surround speakers.
Dolby Virtual
This mode employs sophisticated digital processing to
create the illusion of "phantom" speaker, this mode allows
you to experience surround sound effects from Dolby
Digital, Dolby Surround or 2-channel (recorded in digital
PCM or analog stereo) source, through just a single pair of
front speakers.
