Speaker placement
ENGLISH
Ideal speaker placement varies depending on the size of your
room and the wall coverings, etc. The typical example of
speaker placement and recommendations are as follows :
■Front left and right speakers and center speaker
• Place the front speakers with their front surfaces as flush with
TV or monitor screen as possible.
• Place the center speaker between the front left and right
speakers and no further from the listening position than the
front speakers.
• Place each speaker so that sound is aimed at the location of
the listener’s ears when at the main listening position.
■Surround left and right speakers
• Place the surround speakers approximately 1 meter (40
inches) above the ear level of a seated listener on the direct
left and right of them or slightly behind.
■Subwoofer
• The subwoofer reproduces powerful deep bass sounds.
Place a subwoofer anywhere in the front as
desired.
■Notes :
• When using a conventional TV, to avoid interference with the
TV picture, use only magnetically shielded front left and right
and center speakers.
• To obtain the best surround effects, the speakers except the
subwoofer should be full range speakers.

SETTING THE CH LEVEL
■Note : Depending on the speaker settings ("N (None or No)"), some channels cannot be selected.
Adjusting the current channel level
• You can adjust the current channel levels as desired. These adjusted levels are just memorized into user’s memory("CAL"),
not into preset memory ("REF 1", "REF 2")
• After adjusting each channel level with test tone, adjust the channel levels either according to the program sources or to suit
your tastes. (For details, refer to "Adjusting each channel level with test tone" on page 21.)
1. Press the CURSOR UP(▲)/DOWN(▼) buttons to select the desired channel.
Example) When selecting Dolby Digital source's LFE
2. Press the CURSOR LEFT(◀)/RIGHT(▶) buttons to adjust the level of the selected channel or
program
source's LFE as desired.
• The LFE level can be adjusted within the range of -10 ~ 0
dB and other channel levels within the range of -15 ~ +15 dB
• In general, we recommend the LFE level to be adjusted to
0 dB. (However, the rcommended LFE level for some
early DTS software is -10 dB.) If the recommended levels
seem too high, lower setting as necessary.
3. Repeat the above steps 1 and 2 to adjust each channel level.

Memorizing the adjusted channel levels
• You can memorize the adjusted channel levels into preset memory("REF 1", "REF 2") and recall the memorized whenever
you want.
1. After performing the steps 1 ~ 3 in "Adjusting the current channel level" procedure on page 38, press the
ENGLISH
ENTER button.
• Then "1" of "REF 1" indication flickers.
2. Press the CURSOR LEFT(◀)/RIGHT(▶) buttons to select the desired preset memory, then press the
ENTER button.
• Each time the CURSOR LEFT(◀) or RIGHT(▶) button
is pressed, "REF 1" or "REF 2" is selected.
• The adjusted channel levels have now been memorized
into the selected memory.
Recalling the memorized channel levels
1. Press the CURSOR UP(▲)/DOWN(▼) buttons to select the "MODE ~ ".
• "CAL" may be displayed instead of "REF 1" or "REF 2".
2. Press the CURSOR LEFT(◀)/RIGHT(▶) buttons to select the desired one of REF 1 and REF 2.
• Then the channel levels memorized into the selected
preset memory are recalled.

SETTING THE PARAMETER
• NIGHT M (NIGHT MODE) : To adjust the dynamic range compression that makes faint sound easier to hear at low volume
levels.
• PLII MSC (DOLBY PLII MUSIC) : To adjust the various surround parameters for optimum surround effect.
• RETURN : To return to the previous menu.
When selecting the NIGHT MODE
• This function compresses the dynamic range of previously specified parts of Dolby Digital or DTS sound track (with
extremely high volume) to minimize the difference in volume between the specified and non-specified parts.
This makes it easy to hear all of the sound track when watching movies at night at low levels.
■Notes:
• The night mode setting is valid only when the digital signals from Dolby Digital or DTS program source are being input.
• In some Dolby Digital or DTS softwares, the night mode setting may not be valid.
1. Press the CURSOR UP(▲)/DOWN(▼) buttons to select the "NIGHT M", then press the ENTER button.
2. Press the CURSOR LEFT(◀)/ RIGHT(▶) buttons to adjust the dynamic range compression as desired.

speakers for an exciting "wraparound" effect with side wall imaging.
Select "OFF" or "ON"(default value:OFF).
■When selecting the "C. WIDTH (Center width)" control
This adjusts the center image so it may be heard only from the
center speaker, only from the left/right speakers as a phantom
image, or from all three front speakers to varying degrees. The
control can be set in 8 steps from 0 to 7 (default value : 3).
■When selecting the "DIMEN (Dimension)" control
This gradually adjusts the soundfield either towards the front or
towards the rear. The control can be set in 7 steps from -3 to +3
(default value : 0).
4. Repeat the above steps 2 and 3 to adjust other parameters.
