(supplied) is sufficient.
Connect the loop antenna’s wires to AM and GND. Place the
antenna in a location (for example, on a shelf or window
frame) that gives the best reception.
1. Use a flat or Phillips screwdriver to loosen the screws on
the supplied transformer.
Keep the antenna as far away as possible from the entire
system, speaker cords and the power cord to prevent
unwanted noise.
2. Place the metal connectors on the end of the T-type
antenna’s base on the transformer’s metal contacts
(underneath the screw heads) then tighten the screws.
3. Plug the transformer into ANTENNA FM 75 Ω.

4. Extend the T-antenna’s other two wires and attach them to
a wall or window frame for the best possible reception.
If the supplied AM loop antenna does not deliver sufficient
reception, use an outdoor AM antenna (not supplied).
Note: If you have an FM antenna that uses coaxial cable,
connect it directly to ANTENNA FM 75 Ω.
Use an insulated wire more than 15 feet (5 m) long. Strip one
end, and connect that end to AM.
FM Outdoor Antenna
In an area where FM signals are weak, you must use a 75-ohm
unbalanced-type outdoor FM antenna (not supplied).
Generally, a 3-element antenna will be sufficient. If you live in
String the antenna wire outdoors or indoors near a window.

Your Home Theater Audio System speakers are timbre
matched and ready to use “as is” as soon as you unpack them.
If you wish to fine-tune the system (for example, substitute
different speakers or alter the sound distribution), follow the
directions below.
Important Notes:
• To change the surround sound settings, the receiver must
be in a surround mode that uses all the speakers (for
example, Dolby Digital).
• The center and surround speakers only operate when the
receiver is set to a surround sound mode and the source
material being played is recorded or broadcast in Dolby
Digital, DTS or Dolby Pro Logic surround sound.
• Stereo broadcasts or recordings will produce some
surround channel effects when played in a surround
mode. However, mono sources will not produce any
sound from the surround speakers.

feature does not work for such discs.
• If you change the level and enter a password, playback of
all DVDs with ratings higher than your selection will be
blocked, unless you enter the correct password again. For
example: if you change the level to 5, the DVD player will
not play discs with ratings of 6, 7, or 8 unless the correct
password is entered from the remote control.
