INTRODUCTION
UNPACKING AND INSTALLATION
READ THIS BEFORE OPERATING YOUR UNIT
Congratulations on Your Purchase!
FOR U.S.A. AND CANADA .......................................... 120 V
Your new high fidelity Receiver is designed to deliver maximum
enjoyment and years of trouble free service.
Please take a few moments to read this manual thoroughly. It will
explain the features and operation of your unit and help ensure a trouble
free installation.
Please unpack your unit carefully. We recommend that you save the
carton and packing material. They will be helpful if you ever need to
move your unit and may be required if you ever need to return it for
service. Your unit is designed to be placed in a horizontal position and it
is important to allow at least two inches of space behind your unit for
adequate ventilation and cabling convenience.
To avoid a damage, never place the unit near radiators, in front of
heating vents, in direct sunlight, or in excessively humid or dusty
locations. Connect your complementary components as illustrated in the
following section.
CAUTION
FOR YOUR SAFETY
Units shipped to the U.S.A. and Canada are designed for
operation on 120 V AC only.
Safety precaution with use of a polarized AC plug.
However, some products may be supplied with a nonpolarized
plug.
CAUTION : To prevent electric shock, match wide blade of plug
to wide slot, fully insert.
ATTENTION : Pour eviter les choc electriques, introduire la lame
la plug large de la borne correspondante de la prise et poussre
jusqu'au fond.

FCC INFORMATION
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a
Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These
limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses
and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to
radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference
will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause
harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be
determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged
to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following
measures:
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio TV technician for help.
CAUTION: Any changes or modifications in construction of this device
which are not expressly approved by the party responsible for
compliance could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.

FOR YOUR SAFETY
Units shipped to Australia are designed for operation on 240 V
AC only.
To ensure safe operation the three-pin plug supplied must be
inserted only into a standard three-pin power point which is
effectively earthed through the normal household wiring.
Extension cords used with the equipment must be three-core
and be correctly wired to provide connection to earth.
Improper extension cords are a major cause of fatalities. The
fact that the equipment operates satisfactorily does not imply
that the power point is earthed and that the installation is
completely safe. For your safety, if in any doubt about the
effective earthing of the power point, consult a qualified
electrician.
PAN-EUROPEAN UNIFIED VOLTAGE
All units are suitable for use on supplies 220-240 V AC.
FOR OTHER COUNTRIES .............................. 120 V/220 V
FOR YOUR SAFETY
Units shipped to countries other than the above countries are
equipped with an AC voltage selector switch on the rear panel.
Refer to the following paragraph for the proper setting of this
switch.
AC VOLTAGE SELECTION
This unit operates on 110-220 V AC. The AC voltage selector
switches Type A on the rear panel are set to the voltage that
prevails in the area to which the unit is shipped. Before
connecting the power cord to your AC outlet, make sure that
the setting position of these switches match your line voltage. If
not, They must be set to your voltage in accordance with the
following direction.

Only when you listen to the component to there jack, set
the TAPE MONITOR button to on.
If you connect a 3-head cassette deck, you can listen to
the sound being recorded during recording not the source
sound.
For further details, refer to the operating instructions of the
component connected.
SURROUND MODE
With the SURROUND MODE button you can select 5
different surround modes: DOLBY PRO LOGIC, DOLBY 3
STEREO, THEATER, HALL, SIMULATED or OFF.
DOLBY PRO LOGIC : choose this setting to play back
movies and music (especially Laser Discs, video cassettes
and TV broadcasts with DOLBY SURROUND sound). Not
only does Dolby Pro Logic surround provide you with sound,
it also gives you a clear perception of the position and
direction of the sound. Make sure your 'Speaker
Positioning' is correct. (see 'INSTALLATION')
With a great number of recently made movies, the sound
track is specially encoded with the Dolby Surround mode
carrying the
DOLBY STEREO or
DOLBY
SURROUND trademark. The front speakers provide the
dialogue and the normal stereo effect, while the rear
speakers reproduce the surround signals. This position
provides excellent results when watching television
programs, video software, video discs or video tapes of
stereo television broadcasts encoded with Dolby Surround.
Note : In DOLBY PRO LOGIC mode, the rear speakers are
used as "EFFECT SPEAKERS" and may not produce sound
at all times.
AMPLIFIER
DOLBY 3 STEREO combines the front and rear signals so
that you can enjoy a regenerated sound field which has
comparatively more lively presence and a more expansive
feeling from the three front channels (front left, front right
and center speakers) than that of ordinary stereo
regeneration.
THEATER : Use this when watching movie sources that
have a stereo soundtrack to enjoy the effect of being in a
movie theater.
HALL : Hall mode works best for recorded concerts and
other music programs. In this mode, the front speakers
provide a normal stereo effect while the rear speakers
provide a reverberated sound. This reverberation helps to
simulate the sound you might hear at a live concert.
SIMULATED : The "SIMULATED" creates effects of
reverberated and reflected sound from the walls and ceiling
similar to a concert hall. These sound effects added to the
actual sound from the source make you feel as if you are in
a more expanded space.
Choose the SIMULATED mode if the source sound signal is
mono.
OFF : Turns off the center and rear speakers for normal
stereo operation.
Note : Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby 3 Stereo, Theater, Hall and
