Notes About the Remote Control
Battery Replacement
Should you find the remote controls response gradually
decreasing in range, the batteries are most probably reaching
the end of their life. Replace both batteries with new ones,
preferably of matching brand and type.
Notes
The area between the remote control and the main unit must be
clear of large obstacles.
Do not expose the remote control sensor to strong lighting,in
particular an inverter type fluorescent lamp.Otherwise,the
remote control may not work properly. If necessary, position the
main unit away from direct lighting.
Notes
Use AAA,R3P,UM-4 batteries.
Be sure the batteries are correctly oriented according to polarity.
(See the illustration inside the battery compartment.)
Remove the batteries if the remote control is not used for an
extended period of time.
Should any battery leak, dispose of it immediately.
Avoid physical contact of leaked material with skin or clothing
etc. Clean compartment thoroughly before installing new
batteries. If in doubt, consult your dealer or service personnel.
Never dispose of batteries in a furnace or open fire.
Exposure to extreme heat or fire may result in an explosion
and cause possible injury!

Connecting to Audio-Visual Components
If you have a LD player, DVD player or CD player with a digital output, you can make use of an
optical digital cable (not supplied) or coaxial digital cable (not supplied) to carry the audio portion
of the signal and enjoy Dolby Digital sound quality.
One optical or coaxial cable is needed for each LD player, DVD player or CD player. This
receiver provides one optical, one coaxial and one XLR digital input for the connection of your
If your video component has a S-Video output connection,
you can enjoy enhanced video quality by connecting it to
one of the S-Video input sockets on the rear panel of the
ADP-61.
One video cable is needed for each component.
Note: Before plugging in any optical or S-Video cable, make
sure the shape or pin configuration of the plug and socket
match. Be careful not to apply excessive force when making
a connection!
components. Please connect your components (e.g. LD, DVD, or CD) to the appropriate digital
inputs and press INPUT button to select your connection.
Note:
Optical and coax cables carry only the audio portion of the signal. A separate video connection
must also be established for a LD player and DVD player. S-video provides the best connection
for the video portion of the signal. Composite video (yellow RCA connector) can also be used. It is
important to use the same connection type (S-video or composite) to connect the LD or DVD
player to the ADP-61 and then from the ADP-61 to the TV, LCD or Plasma display.

If your CD or DVD player is equipped with digital output jacks, you can enjoy superior sound quality
by making use of them.
S/PDIF Digital connections are possible via either a TOSLINK optical or a 75ohm co-axial cable with
RCA connectors. For a AES/EBU connection, a 105ohm digital XLR cable is required.
Once connected, simply select either Coax-1, Coax-2 or OPTICAL input for each connection.
Note: This receiver only has one of each digital input type. You may have to use the optical for one unit,
while using the co-axial connection for another.
Also note: Digital cable quality will affect performance. To minimize jitter and other artifacts, only use
good quality, well shielded digital cables.

Notes
When hooking up an A/V unit, such as a VCR, make sure
to connect to all necessary terminals to the same name,
i.e. S-video or composite video as well as the 2xRCA analog
to all relevant sockets labelled “VCR”. The digital terminals also
correlate with certain video sockets (see HINT in next column)
Be sure to attach the dust covers when the OPTICAL terminals
are not being used. This prevents contamination by dust etc.
For accurate DTS-decoding, the DTS bitstream integrity must
never become compromised. Incorrect or poor quality cables
and connectors can corrupt the bitstream and degrade
performance.
In order to prevent digital errors and enjoy optimal
performance, please use dedicated, good quality digital
cables.
For S/PDIF: 70ohm digital co-axial or TosLink optical.
For AES/EBU: 110ohm balanced digital co-axial cable.
All digital audio signal input terminals accept the following
sample rate frequencies: 32 kHz, 44.1kHz, 48kHz, 96kHz
& 192kHz.
Quality of digital cables and connectors do have a bearing
on sound quality and performance. Keep cable lengths to
a minimum.
