About This Manual
Moisture condensation
This manual is organized as follows:
• The manual mainly explains operations using the buttons and
controls on the unit. You can also use the buttons on the remote
control if they have the same or similar names (or marks) as those
on the unit.
If operation using the remote control is different from that using
the unit, it is then explained.
• Basic and common information that is the same for many functions
is grouped in one place, and is not repeated in each procedure.
For instance, we do not repeat the information about turning on/
off the unit, setting the volume, changing the sound effects, and
others, which are explained in the section “Common Operations”
on pages 7 to 9.
• The following marks are used in this manual:
Moisture may condense on the lens inside the unit in the following
cases:
• After starting heating in the room
• In a damp room
• If the unit is brought directly from a cold to a warm place
Should this occur, the unit may malfunction. In this case, leave the
unit turned on for a few hours until the moisture evaporates, unplug
the AC power cord, and then plug it in again.
Others
• Should any metallic object or liquid fall into the unit, unplug the
unit and consult your dealer before operating any further.
• If you are not going to operate the unit for an extended period of
time, unplug the AC power cord from the wall outlet.
Gives you warnings and cautions to prevent from
a damage or risk of fire/electric shock.
Also gives you information which is not good for

How to strip the 75-ohm coaxial cable and connect it
to the FM terminals
1. Strip off the outside covering of the 75-ohm coaxial cable to
expose the braided metallic mesh about 20 mm (13/16
inches).
2. Pull the mesh back and twist it into a single connector as
shown in the illustration above.
3. Strip the insulation about 10 mm (7/16 inches) back from
the central wire.
4. Insert the twisted mesh and the central wire to the FM
terminals, as shown in the illustration above.
• DO NOT use an old battery together with a
new one.
• DO NOT use different types of batteries
together.
• DO NOT expose batteries to heat or flame.
• DO NOT leave the batteries in the battery
compartment when you are not going to use

Using Dolby Surround
Preparing for Dolby Surround
Dolby Surround has been developed to reproduce the important
elements of the acoustic surround at home.
To listen to the sound of video software bearing the mark
DOLBY SURROUND * which includes the same encoded surround
information as found in Dolby Stereo films, the unit can provide
you with Dolby Surround decoder.
This unit features two ways to decode a Dolby Surround encoded
signal, Dolby Pro Logic and Dolby 3 Stereo.
Dolby Pro Logic can be used when the front speakers and rear
speakers are connected to this unit (regardless of the center speaker
connection).
Dolby 3 Stereo can be used when left, center, and right speakers are connected, but no rear speaker is used.
Once you have finished adjustments for Dolby Surround, you can
use the same adjustments every time you want to use each Dolby
Surround mode — Dolby Pro Logic and Dolby 3 Stereo.

Recording
IMPORTANT:
Recording Tapes on Deck B
• It may be unlawful to record or play back copyrighted
material without the consent of the copyright owner.
• The recording level is automatically set correctly, so it is not
affected by the VOLUME control. Thus, during recording you
can adjust the sound you are actually listening to without affecting
the recording level.
• While recording, you can hear sound modes and/or the Signal
Adaptive Bass effect through the speaker or headphones.
However, the sound is recorded without these effect (see page
8).
• If recording you have made have excesssive noise or static, the
unit may be too close to a TV. Increase the distance between the
TV and the unit.
• You can use type I and II tapes for recording.
To protect your recording
Cassettes have two small tabs on
the back to protect unexpected
erasure or re-recording.
To protect your recording, remove
these tabs.
To re-record on a protected tape, cover the holes with adhesive tape.
When using type II tape, be careful not to cover the holes used to
detect the tape type.

• When the source is deck A, you can also use the dubbing
method. (See “Dubbing Tapes” on page 22.)
If the heads, capstant, and pinch rollers of the cassette decks become
dirty, the following will occur:
• Impaired sound quality
• Discontinuous sound
• Fading
• Incomplete erasure
• Difficulty in recording
