Non-magnetic shielding
For non-magnetic shielded speakers:
Try moving the speakers away from your TV or monitor. If
discoloration should occur, turn off your TV or monitor, wait
15 to 30 minutes, and then turn it back on again. This
normally activates the degaussing function, which
neutralizes the magnetic field, thereby removing any
discoloration effects.

About HDMI
Compatible functions
HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a digital
interface standard for connecting TVs, projectors, Blu-ray
Disc/DVD players, set-top boxes, and other video
components. Until now, several separate video and audio
cables have been required to connect AV components. With
HDMI, a single cable can carry control signals, digital video,
and digital audio (2-channel PCM, multichannel digital
audio, and multichannel PCM).
HDMI CEC functionality: By connecting devices and HDMI
cables that comply with the CEC (Consumer Electronics
Control) specification of the HDMI standard, a variety of
linked operation become possible between devices. You
can enjoy features such as linking input switching with the
input selector and players, control volume using the remote
controller of the TV, and automatically switching this unit to
standby when the TV is turned off. The unit is designed to
link with products that comply with the CEC standard, and
that linked operation is not always guaranteed with all CEC
devices.
ARC (Audio Return Channel): By connection a TV that
supports ARC with a single HDMI cable, you can not only
output the audio and video from this unit to the TV, but also
input the audio from the TV to this unit.
HDMI Standby Through: Even if this unit is in standby, the
input signals from AV components are transmitted to the TV.
Deep Color: By connecting devices supporting Deep Color,
video signals input from the devices can be reproduced on
the TV with even more colors.
x.v.Color™: This technology realizes even more realistic
colors by broadening the color gamut.
3D: You can transmit 3D video signals from AV components
to the TV.
4K: This unit supports 4K (3840
(4096
2160p) video signals.

2160p) and 4K SMPTE
LipSync: This setting automatically corrects any
desynchronization between the video and audio signals
based on data from the HDMI LipSync compatible TV.
