English
Welcome to the exciting world of digital home entertainment.
The TSS-1 is a compact, but complete and advanced home theater sound system that takes you to the exciting world of digital
surround sound entertainment. Though some of the advanced features of this system may not be familiar to you, they are easy
to use. Incorporated state-of-the-art technology such as Dolby Digital and DTS can bring the same audio experience to your
home as they have brought to feature films in quality theaters around the world. Take some time now to read more about these
features and enjoy the new experiences this system brings to your home theater.
■ Dolby Surround
Dolby Surround uses four discrete channels and five
speakers to reproduce realistic and dynamic sound effects:
two main channels (left and right), a center channel for
dialog, and a rear channel for special sound effects. The
rear channel reproduces sound within a narrow frequency
range.
Most video tapes and laser discs include Dolby Surround
encoding, as do many TV and cable broadcasts. The Dolby
Pro Logic decoder built into this unit employs a digital signal
processing system that stabilizes each channel for even
more accurate sound positioning than is available with
standard analog processors.
■ Dolby Digital*
Dolby Digital is a digital surround sound system that
provides completely independent multi-channel audio to
you. Dolby Digital provides five full-range channels in what
is sometimes referred to as a “3/2” configuration: three front
channels (left, center and right), and two surround channels.
A sixth bass-only effect channel is also provided for output
of LFE (low frequency effect), or low bass effects that are
independent of other channels. (This is called the “LFE
channel”.) This channel is counted as 0.1, thus giving rise to
the term 5.1 channels in total.
The wide dynamic range of sound reproduced by the five
full-range channels and precise sound orientation by digital
sound processing provides listeners with excitement and
realism that have never been experienced before.
■ DTS (Digital Theater System) Digital
Surround**
DTS was developed to replace the analog soundtracks of
movies with six discrete channels of digital soundtracks,
and it is now installed in many theaters around the world.
The DTS digital playback system changed the way we
experienced movies in theaters with six discrete channels of
superb digital audio.
DTS technology, through intense research and
development, has made it possible to deliver similar
encode/decode discrete technology to home audio
surround-sound entertainment.
DTS Digital Surround is an encode/decode system which
delivers six channels of master-quality, 20-bit audio;
technically, it offers 5.1 channels, which means 5 full-range
(left, center, right and two surround) channels, plus a
subwoofer (LFE) channel (as “0.1”). It is compatible with the
5.1 speaker configurations that are currently available for
home theater systems.
Notes
● When playing an ordinary CD on this system following
playback of a CD or an LD encoded with DTS, some
operations, such as resetting input modes, may be required.
● Even if connected to this system with a digital connection,
some CD, LD, and DVD players may make this system fail to
decode DTS or produce noise. This is because certain digital
data processing by such players can result in DTS data
decoding errors that cause playback failure although the same
data processing may cause only a slight change in volume or
in frequency response with normal digital sound.
● If an error occurs in the player’s digital output data during
playback of an LD or CD encoded with DTS, playback may
be disrupted. If this occurs, stop playback and repower the
player.
● When digital sound signals from the computer are played,
errors in WAVE signals, etc. may occur resulting in noise or
playback failure.

Adjusting speaker balance
Notes
●
This procedure lets you adjust the sound output level
balance between the front, center and surround speakers
by using the built-in test tone generator. Make this
adjustment so that each speaker output level is about the
same when heard at the listening position. This is important
for high performance of the built-in DTS decoder and Dolby
Digital decoder.
* Once you have completed this adjustment, you can
adjust the overall volume level of this system by using
only the MASTER VOLUME control.
When the SPEAKER MODE switch is set to “4CH”:
The test tone for the center channel is reproduced from both
the left and right front speakers at the same time.
When the SPEAKER MODE switch is set to “2CH”:
The test tones for the left and right surrounnd channels are
reproduced from the left and right front speakers
respectively. The output order of the test tones is as follows.
