Congratulations on Your Purchase!
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 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.

This symbol is intended to alert the user to the
presence of uninsulated "dangerous voltage"
within the product's enclosure that may be of
sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of
electric shock to persons.
This symbol is intended to alert the user to the
presence of important operating and
maintenance (servicing) instructions in the
literature accompanying the appliance.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose
this appliance to rain or moisture.
FOR U.S.A
Note to CATV System Installer: This reminder is
provided to call the CATV system installer's attention
to Article 820-40 of the NEC that provides guidelines
for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that
the cable ground shall be connected to the
grounding system of the building, as close to the
point of cable entry as practical.
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 U.S.A AND CANADA ..............................120 V
FOR OTHER COUNTRIES ................... 115 V/230 V
FOR YOUR SAFETY
FOR YOUR SAFETY
Units shipped to the U.S.A and Canada are designed
for operation on 120 V AC only.
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.
Safety precaution with use of a polarized AC plug.
However, some products may be supplied with a
nonpolarized plug.
AC VOLTAGE SELECTION
This unit operates on 115/230 V AC. The AC voltage
selector switch on the rear panel is 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 this switch
matches your line voltage. If not, it must be set to
your voltage in accordance with the following
direction.
CAUTION : To prevent electric shock, match wide
blade of plug to wide slot, fully insert.
FOR EUROPE AND AUSTRALIA .........230 V/240 V
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 230~240 V
AC.

Do not plug the AC input cord into the wall AC outlet until all connections are completed.
Be sure to connect the white RCA pin cord to the L(left) and the red RCA pin cord to the R(right) jacks when making audio
connections.
Change the position of the FM indoor antenna until you get the best reception of your favorite FM stations.
A 75 Ω outdoor FM antenna may be used to further improve the reception.
Disconnect the indoor antenna before replacing it with the outdoor one.
Place the AM loop antenna as far as possible from the receiver, TV set, speaker cords and the AC input cord and set it to a
direction for the best reception.
If the reception is poor with the AM loop antenna, an AM outdoor antenna can be used in place of the AM loop antenna.
Make connections firmly and correctly. If not, it can cause loss of sound, noise or damage to the receiver.
If the electricity fails or the AC input cord is left unplugged for more than 2 weeks, the memorized contents will be cleared.
Should this happen, memorize them again.

SURROUND SOUND
This receiver incorporates a sophisticated Digital Signal Processor that allows you to create optimum sound
quality and sound atmosphere in your personal Home Theater.
Surround modes
DTS Digital Surround
DTS Digital Surround(also called simply DTS) is a multichannel digital signal format which can handle more
amount of data than Dolby Digital, providing better audio
quality. Though the number of audio channels is 5.1(front
left, front right, center, rear(surround) left, rear(surround)
right and Low Frequency Effects) which is same as Dolby
Digital, discs bearing the “
” provides fat sound
Dolby Pro Logic
Dolby Pro Logic is a specially encoded two channel
surround format which consists of four channels (front
left, center, front right and surround). Sources bearing the
“
DOLBY SURROUND ” provide the theater-like surround
sound.
The surround channel is monaural, but is played through
two surround speakers.
and better signal - to - noise ratio, thanks to the lower audio
compression ratio format.
It also provides wide dynamic range and better separation,
resulting in magnificent sound.
“DTS” and “DTS Digital Surround” are registered
trademarks of Digital Theater Systems,Inc.
Dolby Virtual
This mode employs sophisticated digital processing to
create the illusion of “phantom” speakers, this mode
allows you to experience surround sound effects from the
Dolby Digital, Dolby Surround or 2-channel(recorded in
digital PCM or analog stereo) sources, through just a
single pair of front speakers.
Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is the multi-channel digital signal format
developed by Dolby Laboratories. Discs bearing the
“
DOLBY ” includes the recording of up to 5. 1 channels
Manufactured under license from Dolby Laboratories.
“Dolby”, “Pro Logic”, and the double-D symbol are
trademarks of Dolby Laboratories.
D I G I T A L
of digital signals, which can reproduce much better sound
quality, spatial expansion and dynamic range characteristics
than the previous Dolby Surround effect.
Dolby Pro Logic II surround
This mode applies conventional 2- channel signals such as
digital PCM or analog stereo signals as well as Dolby
Surround signals, etc. to surround processing to offer
improvements over conventional Dolby Pro Logic circuits.
Dolby Pro Logic ll surround includes 4 modes as follows:
• Dolby Pro Logic ll MOVIE
When enjoying movies, this mode allows you to further
enhance the cinematic quality by adding processing that
emphasizes the sounds of the action special effects.
• Dolby Pro Logic ll MUSIC
When listening to music, this mode allows you to further
enhance the sound quality by adding processing that
emphasizes the musical effects.
• Dolby Pro Logic ll MATRIX
When listening to poor FM broadcasts, this mode allows
you to further enhance the sound quality by the ultimate
cure for poor FM stereo signals.
• Dolby Pro Logic ll CUSTOM
This mode reproduces a delayed signals from the surround
channels to emphasize the sense of expansion.
• The following modes apply conventional 2-channel
signals such as digital PCM or analog stereo signals to
high performance Digital Processor to recreate sound
fields artificially.
THEATER
This mode provides the effect of being in a movie theater
when watching a movie source.
HALL
This mode provides the ambience of a concert hall for
classical music sources such as orchestral, chamber music,
or an instrumental solo.
STADIUM
This mode provides the expansive sound field to achieve
the true stadium effect when watching baseball or soccer
games.
CHURCH
This mode provides the ambience of a church for baroque,
string orchestral or choral group music.
• When the 6 CH DIRECT INPUTs are connected to the 6 CH decoder for a surround sound such as Dolby Digital or
DTS, etc., you can enjoy the corresponding surround sound, too. (For details, see the operator’s manual of the
component to be connected.)
14
When the center speaker or the rear speakers is(are) closer to the listener than the front speakers, the sound from
the center speaker or the rear speakers can arrive at the listener’s ears earlier than the sound from the front
speakers.
In this case, the imaging is not as sharp and stable as it could be.
For audible improvement, the sound from center speaker can be delayed with the center delay time setting so that
the sound from the front and the center speakers will be heard at the same time and the sound from the rear
speakers can be also delayed with the rear delay time setting so that the sound from the front and the rear speakers
will be heard at the same time.
The optimum delay time will be different according to the room size and the acoustic properties. It is
recommended that you try several times to obtain the best effect.
It is adjustable in Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Virtual modes. (For details,
refer to “In Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Virtual mode, adjusting delay times of
the speakers” on page 19)
Speaker placement
To obtain the best surround sound effect in your home, place the speakers as
follows;
Front speakers: Place each front speaker about 1m (40″) from the TV set.
Center speaker: Place the center speaker either above or below the TV set to
assure good visualization of center channel program.
Rear speakers: Place the rear speakers approximately 1m above the ear level
of a seated listener on the direct left and right of them or
slightly behind.
Subwoofer: Reproduces powerful deep bass sounds. Place a powered
subwoofer anywhere in the front as desired.
The ideal surround system needs all the speakers listed above.
To obtain the best surround effects, the speakers except the subwoofer should
be full range speakers.
Note: To avoid interference with the TV picture, use only magnetically
shielded center and front speakers.
For your reference, the sound from each channel can be reproduced according
to the surround modes as follows:
