Wireless functions
Installation
As this system uses a frequency band of 2.4 GHz, the radio waves may be interrupted by an obstacle. Depending on the
surrounding environment (i.e. radio wave interruption from outside, etc.) or the building structure where this system is used (i.e. wall
that easily reflects radio waves, etc.), sounds may be cut or noise may occur.
Install this system properly paying attention to the following descriptions.
„ Equipment certification
As this system received Technical Conditions compliance certification based on the Radio Law, the wireless station license is not
required. However, if you do the following actions to this system, you may be punished by law.
• Disassemble or refurbish
„ Restrictions for use
• Domestic use only.
• Use this system in the same room.
„ Do not place an obstacle between the main unit and speakers.
Radio waves from this system reach maximum range of 15 m (49 feet) in the same room. If there is an obstacle between the main
unit and speakers or the main unit is placed at the height of 50 cm (1.6 feet) or below from the floor, the radio waves reach smaller
range.
„ Keep this system away from equipment that generates radio wave interference.
If the following equipment is located near the system, install this system away from such equipment.
• Bluetooth, OA devices, telephone, etc.: approx. 3 m (10 feet) or more.
• Microwave oven, wireless LAN compatible devices: approx. 3 m (10 feet) or more.
This system is designed to automatically avoid radio wave interference with such household equipment. If radio wave
interference occurs, the Wireless Link display (➜ page 14) may blink, the sounds from speakers may be interrupted or noise may
occur.
These phenomena occur when this system selects a proper frequency. These are not malfunctions.
„ Keep this system away from metal objects that tend to reflect radio waves.
If there are metal objects or furniture in the room where this system is installed, radio waves tend to be reflected. Depending on the
listening-viewing position, sounds may be interrupted or noise may occur. These symptoms may be remedied by slightly moving this
system’s position.
Note that radio waves tend to be reflected also when this system is installed in rooms with a lot of activity.

Glossary
Analog
Audio signals produced from L/R audio output terminals of
general equipment is called analog audio.
CPPM (Content Protection for Prerecorded Media)
This is the copyright protection technology which prevents file
copy of DVD audio.
Decoder, Decode
Decoder is the device to enable us to hear audio data that is
encoded on DVD, etc., as a normal audio signal. This process is
called Decode.
Deep Color
This system can reproduce greater color gradation (4096 steps)
when connected to compatible TV and recorder, etc.
You can enjoy exceptionally rich, natural-looking colors, with
smooth, detailed gradation and minimal color banding.
Digital
Blu-ray Disc players, DVD recorders, DVD players, and CD
players are usually equipped with digital output terminals.
Connect through the digital terminal to enjoy digital surround
sounds such as Dolby Digital and DTS.
Dolby Digital
Digital sound compression technology developed by Dolby
Laboratories.
Compatible with surround sound as well as 2-channel stereo
sound. With this technology, you can keep massive amount of
audio data in a disc efficiently.
Dolby Pro Logic
This system can process not only Dolby Surround, but also
other 2-channel sources to produce a 5.1-channel sound for
a more realistic sound field. It is also possible to enhance old
movies recorded in stereo with this dynamic 5.1-channel sound.
This system uses Dolby Pro Logic to add surround effects to
stereo sources such as video cassettes and CDs.
Dolby Virtual Speaker
This system allows you to enjoy a surround effect with two
front speakers. This is not merely a “virtual surround” effect, but
rather uses the optimal speaker arrangements and listening
positions for 5.1-channel sound.
Down-sampling
This is the process of resampling by reducing the sampling rate
of a signal that was sampled at a certain rate.
Glossary
DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
Surround system used in most movie theaters. Separation
works well between channels, resulting in realistic surround
effects.
Troubleshooting and
other information
Dynamic range
Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level of
sound that can be heard above the noise of the equipment and
the highest level of sound before distortion occurs.
HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface)
HDMI enables you to transmit digital audio and video signals
using a single cable.
You can also transmit control signals using HDMI connections.
Multi-channel LPCM (Linear PCM)
This is the uncompressed audio signal encoded digitally. Multichannel LPCM signals used for Blu-ray Disc, DVD audio, etc.
offer playback with higher-sound quality.
Up to 7.1-channel LPCM signals can be input to this system.

Optical
Using optical fiber cable for digital signal input/output from DVD,
CD, etc., provides better sound quality for playback or recording
compared to analog. Only possible with equipment that has an
optical terminal.
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation)
This is one of the methods that enable analog sounds to be
converted to digital sounds without compression.
This method is used for music CD, etc.
Sampling frequency
Sampling is the process of converting the heights of sound wave
(analog signal) samples taken at set periods into digits (digital
encoding). Sampling frequency is the number of samples taken
per second, so larger numbers mean faithful reproduction of the
original sound.
Standby through function
When this system and TV and Blu-ray Disc player/DVD recorder
etc. are connected with HDMI cables, image/audio from Bluray Disc player/DVD recorder etc. can still be transmitted to TV
through this system even though the system is turned off.
This is useful when you want to enjoy late night viewing only
with the television’s speakers.
Images recorded with x.v.Color or Deep Color are also
supported.
Surround signal
Audio signal made up with front speakers, center speaker and
surround speakers. When the front speakers are only used for
this system, surround signals are automatically played by Dolby
Virtual Speaker.
WHISPER-MODE SURROUND
Even when the sound volume level is low, you can enjoy
dynamic surround playback similarly as during normal playback.
This is convenient when listening at night.
x.v.Color
This is a name of products compliant with ISO Standard for
wider color space: “xvYCC”. This system supports x.v.Color.
1080p
This is one of the digital hi-vision images.
1080 is the number of effective scanning lines that constitute
the actual screen. This enables every detail to be beautifully
expressed. Images are less flickered with progressive method
that scans in order from the top. This system supports 1080p.
5.1-channel surround
Monaural and stereo use one channel and two channels
respectively to reproduce sound, but 5.1-channel surround
uses 5 speakers and 1 subwoofer. The 5 channels are: 1 center
speaker, 2 front speakers, and 2 surround speakers at the
side of or to the rear of the sitting position. Sound output of the
subwoofer is much narrower than the other speakers, and so
is considered as 0.1. This is called 5.1-channel surround when
played through all 5.1 channels, when the front speakers are
only used for this system, you can enjoy the sound field effect
with Dolby Virtual Speaker as if you are listening to 5.1-channel
sources.
7.1-channel virtual surround
When playing back 7.1-channel LPCM signals with this function,
you can enjoy wider sound field effects as if another speaker is
added.

Consumer Electronics Group want you to get the most out of your
equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that lets the sound come
through loud and clear without annoying blaring or distortion-and, most
importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.
We recommend that you avoid prolonged exposure to excessive noise.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level” adapts
to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds “normal” can actually be
loud and harmful to your hearing.
Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE
your hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
• Start your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and
clearly, and without distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
• Set the dial and leave it there.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or
loss in the future. After all, we want you listening for a lifetime.
