Features
Digital AV Receiver
iPod
This product is a pure digital AV receiver that performs
digital signal processing to minimize signal distortion and
loss.
You can enjoy music files by connecting your iPod/iPhone
to the AV Receiver with the supplied iPod dock.
Dolby Pro Logic II
DPL II processes any high quality stereo signal source
into five separate full frequency channels.
SFE (Sound Field Effect) Using
32bit Audio Digital Signal
Processing
DTS 96/24
Provides more realistic surround sound with normal
stereo audio sources.
DTS 96/24 encodes standard 16 bit/44.1 kHz sound to
Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC) Function
24 bit/96kHz and applies it to a 5.1 CH sound track.
DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
DTS provides a discrete 5.1 CH digital audio signal for
both music and movie contents and uses less
compression than Dolby Digital for richer sound.
Anynet+ is a function that can be used to operate this
AV Receiver with a Samsung TV remote control, by
connecting the receiver to a SAMSUNG TV using an
HDMI Cable. (This function is available only in
connection with Samsung TV and DVD player
supporting Anynet+(HDMI-CEC).)

Position of AV Receiver
Place the AV Receiver on a dedicated stand or rack.
Subwoofer
The position of the subwoofer is not so critical. Place it anywhere you like.
Front Speakers
Place these speakers in front of your listening position, facing inwards (about 45°) toward you.
Place the speakers so that their tweeters will be at the same height as your ears.
Align the front face of the front speakers with the front face of the center speaker or place them slightly
in front of the center speaker.

HW-C500-C560S-XAA_0609.indd 16

ENG
Center speaker
It is best to install it at the same height as the front speakers.
You can also install it directly over or under the TV.
● CONNECTIONS
Surround Speakers
Place these speakers behind your listening position.
If there isn't enough room, place these speakers so they face each other.
Place them about 2 to 3 feet (60 to 90cm) above your ears, facing slightly downward.
Unlike the front and center speakers, the surround speakers are used to handle mainly sound effects
and sound will not come from them all the time.
M
When you attach the speakers to the wall, make sure to fasten them tightly so they do not fall off.
Speaker Configuration
For the best surround-sound experience, you should connect five speakers and a powered subwoofer.
The following table shows which channels you should use based on the number of speakers you have.
2 speakers
M
3 speakers
4 speakers
5 speakers
If you place a speaker near your TV set, screen color may be distorted because of the magnetic field generated
by the speaker. If this occurs, place the speaker away from your TV set.

HDMI removes any loss of signal from analog conversion, enabling you to enjoy video and audio sound quality as it was
originally created in the digital source.
By connecting through the HDMI(High-Definition Multimedia Interface) interface, you can play back digital video and audio.
