Safety Information
● Before operating the system, check that the
operating voltage indicated on the typeplate (or
the voltage indication beside the voltage
selector) of your system is identical with the
voltage of your local power supply. If not, please
consult your dealer.
● Place the system on a flat, hard and stable
surface.
● Place the system in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent internal heat build-up in
your system. Allow at least 10 cm (4 inches)
clearance from the rear and the top of the unit
and 5 cm (2 inches) from each side.
● Do not expose the system, batteries or discs to
excessive moisture, rain, sand or heat sources
caused by heating equipment or direct sunlight.
● If the system is brought directly from a cold to a
warm location, or is placed in a very damp room,
moisture may condense on the lens of the disc
unit inside the system. Should this occur, the CD
player will not operate normally. Leave the
power on for about one hour with no disc in the
system until normal playback is possible.
● The mechanical parts of the set contain selflubricating bearings and must not be oiled or
lubricated.
● When the system is switched to Standby
mode, it is still consuming some power.
To disconnect the system from the
power supply completely, remove the AC
power plug from the wall socket.

the antenna for optimal reception.
AM Antenna
Before connecting the AC power cord to the
wall outlet, ensure that the following are done;
– If your system is equipped with a Voltage
Selector, set the VOLTAGE SELECTOR to the
local power line voltage.
– All other connections have been made.
WARNING
– For optimal performance use only the
original power cable.
– Never make or change connections with
the power switched on.
To avoid overheating of the system, a safety
circuit has been built in. Therefore your
system may switch to Standby mode
automatically under extreme conditions. If
this happens, let the system cool down
before reusing it (not available for all versions).
● Position the antenna as far as possible from a TV,
VCR or other radiation sources.

to the analog audio inputs of the equipment.
Connecting other equipment to your
system
Connect the audio left and right OUT terminals
of a TV, VCR, Laser Disc player, DVD player or
CD Recorder to the AUX/CDR IN terminals.
Notes:
– Do not connect equipment to both LINE OUT
and AUX/CDR IN terminals simultaneously.
Otherwise, noise will be generated and malfunction
might occur.
– If you are connecting an equipment with mono
output, connect it to the AUX/CDR IN left terminal.
Alternatively, you can use a “single to double” cinch
cable.
Wireless Surround Out Connection
Connect the transmitter unit of wireless rear
speakers to the SURROUND OUT terminal.
Note:
– The availability of a wireless transmitter and its
peripherals are subjected to the approval of local
authorities. Please check with your respective local
safety or approving authority.
Digital Out Connection
Connect this digital output for recording on any
audio equipment with digital input (CD
Recorder, Digital Audio Tape [DAT] deck, Digital
to Analog Converter and Digital Signal Processor
for example). Use a cinch cable to connect the
DIGITAL OUT terminal to the digital input of
the equipment.
Inserting batteries into the
Remote Control
Insert two batteries
(Type R06 or AA) into
the remote control with
the correct polarity as
indicated by the + and
- symbols inside the
compartment.
CAUTION
– Remove batteries if they are exhausted
or not to be used for a long time.
– Do not use old and new or different
types of batteries in combination.
– Batteries contain chemical substances, so
they should be disposed off properly.

Dolby ProLogic Surround Sound provides the
current industry standard for home cinema
sound from VCR and TV broadcasts. The front
left and right speakers deliver detailed, directional
sound as the center speaker "steers" dialogue/
vocal sound and center screen action toward the
TV screen. Both surround speakers add a
greater sense of depth with special effects.
Positioning the Speakers
To get the best surround sound effect, place the
speakers as follows.

Audio and video tapes and discs with the

Front Left and Right Speakers
For the best sound, place the left and right
speakers at an angle of approximately 45
degrees to the listener.
IMPORTANT!
– Dolby Pro Logic Surround sound can only
be reproduced if the program is broadcast
in Dolby Surround Sound.
– For the best Dolby Pro Logic sound,
switch on DPL with DSC set to “Classic”
and with VEC off.
– Dolby Pro Logic mode will automatically
switch to normal Stereo mode when
headphones are connected.
– When recording, switch to normal stereo
mode.
Note:
– To avoid magnetic interference with the picture
on your TV, do not position the front speakers too
close to the TV.
Rear (surround) Speakers
The surround speakers should be placed at
normal listening ear level or mounted on the
wall at the back of the room. Most importantly,
experiment when placing the surround speakers
to obtain the best sound.
Center Speaker
For the best sound, place the center speaker at
the same height as the left and right speakers.
Place the center speaker directly above or
beneath the television.
Setting up the Dolby Pro Logic
system
You must set up the system properly in order to
experience and enjoy a Home Cinema sound

● Place the subwoofer as shown.
● To obtain a better bass reproduction, place the
subwoofer on a solid floor where resonance is
unlikely to occur.
● Always place the subwoofer in a vertical position,
at least a few centimeters away from the
television and wall.
● Do not place an object on the subwoofer or sit
on it.
● If the subwoofer is placed in the center of a
room, the bass could be extremely weakened.
This is due to the influence of the standing wave
of the room. If this happens, move the
subwoofer away from the center of the room or
eliminate the cause of the standing wave, by
installing a bookshelf on the wall for example.
IMPORTANT!
Before you operate the subwoofer,
complete the preparation procedures.
Switch on your mini system and select the
sound source.
Operating the Subwoofer
Switching the subwoofer ON
Rotate the subwoofer
VOLUME clockwise until you
hear a click.
➜ The LED indicator will light
up in green.
STANDBY
Adjust the VOLUME on the mini system until
the sound from the front speakers is not
distorted. If it is distorted, the sound from the
subwoofer also will be distorted.
2 Play your favorite songs.
● Male vocal tunes containing bass sounds are the
most suitable samples for adjusting the
subwoofer volume.
3 Adjust the subwoofer VOLUME to determine
the loudness of the bass sound from the
subwoofer.
Phase Selector
Use PHASE
PHASE
00
SELECTOR
located at the rear SELECTOR
180 0
of the subwoofer to
select the phase polarity. Selecting the polarity at
either 0˚ or 180˚ may determine better bass
reproduction effect in certain listening
environments (depending on the type of front
speakers and the position of the subwoofer). It
also may change the expense and tightness of
the sound, and affect the feeling of the sound
field. Select the setting that provides the sound
you prefer when you are in your normal listening
position.
Repeat the adjustment for Volume and Phase
