Before Use (Continued)
Precautions
Handling the unit
When shipping the unit
For maximum protection, use the original carton and
packing materials when shipping or transporting the
unit. Re-pack the unit as it was originally packaged at
the factory.
When setting up the unit
The picture and sound of a nearby TV, VCR, or radio
may be distorted during playback. In this case, position
the unit away from the TV, VCR, or radio, or turn off the
unit after removing the disc.
To keep the surface clean
Do not use volatile liquids, such as insecticide spray,
near the unit. Do not leave rubber or plastic products in
contact with the unit for a long period of time. They will
leave marks on the surface.
Cleaning the unit
To clean the cabinet
Use a soft, dry cloth. If the surfaces are extremely dirty,
use a soft cloth lightly moistened with a mild detergent
solution. Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol,
benzine, or thinner, as these might damage the surface
of the unit.
To obtain a clear picture
The DVD/VCR Receiver is a high-tech, precision
device. If the optical pick-up lens and disc drive parts
are dirty or worn, the picture quality will be poor.
Regular inspection and maintenance are recommended
after every 1,000 hours of use. (This depends on the
operating environment.)
For details, please contact your nearest dealer.
Notes on Discs
Handling discs
Do not touch the playback side of the disc.
Hold the disc by the edges so that fingerprints will not
get on the surface.
Do not stick paper or tape on the disc.
Cleaning discs
Fingerprints and dust on the disc can cause poor picture quality and sound distortion. Before playing, clean
the disc with a clean cloth. Wipe the disc from the center out.

11-14.
Please refer to the manuals of your TV, VCR, Stereo
System or other devices as necessary to make the best
connections.
If your cable wire is connected to your TV without a converter
or descrambler box, unscrew the wire from your TV and attach
it to the ANT.IN jack on the DVD/VCR Receiver. Use the supplied round coaxial cable to connect between the DVD/VCR
Receiver’s RF.OUT jack and the 75 ohm antenna input jack on

Speaker System Connections
Speaker Positioning
Connect the speakers using the supplied speaker wire
by matching the colors of the terminals and those of the
wires. To obtain the best possible surround sound,
adjust the speaker parameters (distance, level, etc.).
For a normal setup use 6 speakers (2 front speakers,
center speaker, 2 rear speakers and subwoofer).
otes
Be sure to match the speaker wire to the appropriate
terminal on the components: 3 to 3 and # to #. If
the wires are reversed, the sound will be distorted
and lack bass.
The front speakers have a low maximum input rating,
adjust the volume carefully to avoid excessive volume
output to the speakers.
Do not disassemble the front covers of supplied speakers.
Center Speaker
Front Speaker
(Right)
Front Speaker
(Left)
• Front Speakers
Based on your listening position, set up the speakers
at equal distance. And by hearing position, set up an
interval between speakers of 45 degree.
• Center Speaker
It is ideal if the center speaker and front speakers are
at the same height. But normally place the center
speaker above or below the television as shown
below.
• Rear Speakers
Place the rear surround speakers to the left and right
behind the primary listening area. These speakers
recreate sound motion and atmosphere required for
surround playback. For best results, do not install the
rear speakers too far behind the listening position,
install them at or above the level of the listener’s ears.
It is also effective to direct the rear speakers towards
a wall or ceiling to further disperse the sound.
For smaller room sizes, if the audience is near the
rear wall, set the rear speakers opposite each other
60 - 90 cm (23.6 - 35.4 inch) above the listener’s
ears.
• Subwoofer
This can be placed in any front position.

Sound Mode Setup and Descriptions
Mini Glossary for Audio Stream &
Surround mode
(DTS)
Allows you to enjoy 5.1(or 6) discrete channels of high quality
digital audio from DTS program sources such as discs, DVD
and compact discs, etc. bearing the trademark. DTS Digital
Surround delivers up to 6 channels of transparent audio(which
means identical to the original masters) and results in exceptional clarity throughout a true 360 degree sound field. The
term DTS is a trademark of DTS Technology, LLC.
Manufactured under license from DTS Technology, LLC.
(Dolby Digital)
The Dolby Digital surround format lets you enjoy up to 5.1
channels of digital surround sound from a Dolby Digital program source. If you play DVDs with “
” mark, you can
enjoy even better sound quality, greater spatial accuracy, and
improved dynamic range.
(Dolby Pro Logic)
Use this mode when playing movie or Dolby Digital 2 channel
which carries the “
” mark. This mode provides the effect
of being in a movie theater or live concert house-an effect with
an intensity which can only be obtained through DOLBY PRO
LOGIC SURROUND. The effect of the front/back/left/right
movement of the sound image, as well as the sense of fixed
position in the sound image, is much clearer and more dynamic than before.
(Dolby Pro Logic II)
Dolby Pro Logic II creates five full-bandwidth output channels
from two-channel sources. This is done using an advanced,
high-purity matrix surround decoder that extracts the spatial
properties of the original recording without adding any new
sounds or tonal colorations.
MOVIE mode:
The Movie mode is for use with stereo television shows and all
programs encoded in Dolby Surround. The result is enhanced
soundfield directionality that approaches the quality of discrete
5.1-channel sound.
MUSIC mode:
The Music mode is for use with any stereo music recordings, and
provides a wide and deep sound space. Music mode includes
controls that allow the sound to be tailored to individual listening
tastes.
MATRIX mode:
The Matrix mode is the same as the Music mode except that the
directional enhancement logic is turned off. It may be used to
enhance mono signals by making them seem “larger.” Matrix
mode may also find use in auto systems, where the fluctuations
from poor FM stereo reception can otherwise cause disturbing
surround signals from a logic decoder. The ultimate “cure” for
poor FM stereo reception may be simply to force the audio to
mono.
3D SURROUND
This unit can produce a 3D Surround ef fect, using 3D Surround
Sound technology, which simulates multi-channel audio playback from two conventional stereo speakers instead of the five
or more speakers normally required to listen to multi-channel
audio from a home theater. This feature works with DVD discs
encoded with Dolby Pro Logic and Dolby Digital audio tracks.
BYPASS
Software with multichannel surround audio signals is played
according to the way it was recorded.

Sound Mode
You can enjoy surround sound simply by selecting one
of the pre-programmed sound fields according to the
program you want to listen to.
Press SOUND MODE repeatedly until the sound mode
you want appears in the display window, see below.
Each time you press SOUND MODE, the sound mode is
changed in the following order;
BYPASS → PRO LOGIC → MOVIE → MUSIC → MATRIX →

While DVD is inserted
You can change the sound mode of DVD (Dolby Digital, DTS,
PCM, etc) by pressing the AUDIO button on the remote

AUDIO MODE
The DVD/VCR Receiver has two separate audio playback systems, the high quality VHS Hi-Fi system and standard NORMAL mono system. The same audio is generally recorded on
both systems. The VHS Hi-Fi system plays on separate (left
and right) channels, and the NORMAL system plays monaural
sound. The normal track is always played so the cassette can
be played on a DVD/VCR Receiver that does not have VHS
Hi-Fi.
AUDIO MODE can be switched between HI-FI and
NORMAL using b/B.
BROADCAST TYPE (STEREO/SAP/MONO)
Multichannel Television Sound (MTS) carries stereo and/or
Second Audio Program (SAP) bilingual signals. Set this display to
the desired position when both MTS stereo and SAP signals are
received. When only one of the MTS signal is received, the
DVD/VCR Receiver automatically selects the corresponding
receiving mode (Stereo or SAP) regardless of the selected position. For normal operation, the display should be in the STEREO
position. The DVD/VCR Receiver will then record a STEREO program when available, and record a mono program IF the program is
NOT IN STEREO.
For weak STEREO and/or SAP broadcasts, changing the display to mono may give clearer sound.
BROADCAST TYPE can be switched between STEREO,
SAP, and MONO using b/B.
AUDIO OUTPUT (STEREO/LEFT/RIGHT)
Used during playback [when AUDIO MODE (HI-FI/NORMAL) is
in HI-FI position] for selecting the audio output signals from the
AUDIO OUT terminals (L ch and R ch), and RF.OUT.
This display setting should normally be left in the stereo position, so that when a stereo tape is played, the stereo sound will
be heard through the left and right channels. If a mono tape is
played and the audio output is set to stereo, the same mono
sound will be heard from both left and right channels.
AUDIO OUTPUT can be switched between STEREO, LEFT,

About MP3
MP3
An MP3 file is audio data compressed by using the
MPEG1 audio layer-3 file-coding scheme. We call
files that have the “.mp3” file extension “MP3 files”.
The player can not read an MP3 file that has a file
extension other than “.mp3”.
The DVD/VCR Receiver can play MP3 formatted
recordings on CD-ROM, CD-R, or CD-RW discs.
Before playing MP3 recordings, read the notes on MP3

If you record MP3 files using the software which

recommend that you use “Easy-CD Creator”, which
creates an ISO9660 file system.
A single session disc requires MP3 files in the first
track. If there is no MP3 file in the 1st track, it cannot playback MP3 files. If you wish to playback MP3
files, format all the data in the disc or use a new

File names should be named using 8 letters or less

This DVD/VCR Receiver requires discs/recordings to
meet certain technical standards in order to achieve
optimal playback quality. Pre-recorded DVDs are automatically set to these standards. There are many different types of recordable disc formats (including CD-R
