A standard type connector (IEC or DIN45325) should be connected to the FM 75Ω
COAXIAL terminal.
If reception is poor, connect the
outside antenna.
Before attaching a 75Ω coaxial
cable (the kind with a round wire
going to an outside antenna),
disconnect the supplied FM
antenna.

Connecting the Speakers
You can connect the following speakers:
• Two pairs of front speakers to produce normal stereo sound.
• One pair of rear speakers to enjoy the surround effect.
• One center speaker to produce more effective surround effect (to emphasize human
voices).
• One subwoofer to enhance the bass.
IMPORTANT:
After connecting the speakers listed above, set the speaker setting
information properly to obtain the best possible surround effect. For details,
see page 24.
For each speaker (except for subwoofer), connect the (–) and (+) terminals on the rear
panel to the (–) and (+) terminals marked on the speakers. For connecting a subwoofer,
see page 12.
Connecting the front speakers
Cut, twist and remove the insulation at the end of each speaker
signal cable first, and then, connect the front speakers to the
FRONT SPEAKERS terminals by using the cables.
You can connect two pairs of front speakers (one pair to the
FRONT SPEAKERS 1 terminals, and another pair to the FRONT
SPEAKERS 2 terminals).

Video component connections
Use the cables with RCA pin plugs (not supplied).
Connect the white plug to the audio left jack, the red plug to the audio right jack, and
the yellow plug to the video jack.
If DVD player and TV have S-video (Y/C-separation) terminals, connect them using Svideo cables (not supplied). Connecting these video components through the S-video
input/output terminals will give you better picture playback quality.
IMPORTANT:
This receiver is equipped with both the composite video and S-video input
terminals for the DVD player connection.
You do not have to connect both the composite video and S-video terminals.
However, remember that the video signals from the composite video input
terminal are output only through the composite video output terminals, while
the ones from the S-video input terminal are output only through the S-video
output terminal.
Therefore, if your DVD player is connected to the receiver only through the Svideo input terminal, you cannot record the picture from the DVD player on the
VCR.
In addition, if the TV and the DVD player are connected to the receiver through
the different video terminals, you cannot view the playback picture from the DVD
player on the TV.

Receiving Radio Broadcasts
Using the RDS (Radio Data System) to Receive FM Stations
RDS allows FM stations to send an additional signal along with their regular program
signals. For example, the stations send their station names, as well as information about
what type of program they broadcast, such as sports or music, etc.
When tuned to an FM station which provides the RDS service, the RDS indicator lights
up on the display.
With the receiver, you can receive the following types of RDS signals.
PS (Program Service) :
shows commonly known station names
PTY (Program Type) :
shows types of broadcast programs
RT (Radio Text) :
shows text messages the station sends
EON (Enhanced Other Network): see page 34.
Note:
RDS may not operate correctly if
the station tuned is not
transmitting RDS signal properly
or if the signal strength is weak.
What Information Can RDS Signals Provide?
You can see the RDS signals the station sends on the display.
To show the RDS signals

The built-in Surround Processor provides three types of the DSP (Digital Signal Processor) mode — 3DPHONIC mode, DAP (Digital Acoustic Processor) mode and Surround mode (Dolby Pro Logic and Theater
Surround.)
On 3D-PHONIC mode
The 3D-PHONIC mode gives you such a
nearly surround effect as it is reproduced
through the Dolby Surround decoder, which
is widely used to reproduce sounds with a
feeling of movement like those experienced
in movie theaters. The 3D-PHONIC mode is
the result of research on sound localization
technology carried out at JVC for many
years and makes it possible to reproduce the
surround sound with only two front
speakers.
Notes:
• The DSP modes has no effect
on monaural sources.
• You can not use the two types
of the DSP modes at the same
time.
• The DSP modes cannot be
used for recording.
• When you select “DVD MULTI”
as the source to play, you
cannot select or adjust the
DSP modes.
IMPORTANT:
Before recording, turn off the
DVD MULTI playback mode.
On the DAP mode
The sound heard in a concert hall or club
consists of direct sound and indirect sound

directly without any reflection. On the other

these important elements, and gives you a

COMPU LINK Remote Control System
The COMPU LINK remote control system allows you to operate JVC audio components through the remote
sensor on the receiver.
To use this remote control system, you need to connect JVC audio components through
the COMPU LINK-3 (SYNCHRO) jacks (see below) in addition to the connections
using cables with RCA pin plugs (see page 14).
• Make sure that the AC power cords of these components are unplugged before
connection. Plug the AC power cords only after all connections are complete.
.
COMPU LINK – 3
(SYNCHRO)
CD player
Cassette deck
or
MD recorder
Turntable
This remote control system allows you to use four functions listed below.
Remote Control through the Remote Sensor on the Receiver
You can control the connected audio components through the remote sensor on the
receiver using this remote control. Aim the remote control directly at the remote sensor
on the receiver. For details, see pages 67 and 68.
Notes:
• If your audio component has
two COMPU LINK-3
(SYNCHRO) jacks, you can
use either one. If it has only
one COMPU LINK-3
(SYNCHRO) jack, connect it
so that it is the last item in the
series of components. (For
example, the turntable or CD
player in the diagram to the
left.)
• To operate the cassette deck
or MD recorder using the
COMPU LINK remote control
system, set the source name
correctly. (See page 23.)
• Refer also to the manuals
supplied with your audio
components.
Automatic Source Selection
3) button on a connected component or on its own remote
When you press the play (3
control, the receiver automatically turns on and changes the source to the component.
On the other hand, if you select a new source on the receiver or the remote control, the
selected component begins playing immediately.
In both cases, the previously selected source continues playing without sound for a few
seconds.
Automatic Power On/Off (Standby): only possible with the COMPU
LINK-3 connection
Both the CD player and cassette deck (or MD recorder) turn on and off (standby) along
with the receiver.
When you turn on the receiver, the CD player or cassette deck (or MD recorder) will
turn on automatically, depending on which component has been previously selected.
When you turn off the receiver, both the CD player and cassette deck (or MD recorder)
will turn off (standby).
Synchronized Recording
Synchronized recording means the cassette deck (or MD recorder) starts recording as
soon as a CD or a record begins playing.
To use synchronized recording, follow these steps:
1. Put a tape in the cassette deck (or an MD in the MD recorder), and a disc in the
CD player (or a record on the turntable).
¶) button and the pause (8
8) button on the cassette deck (or
2. Press the record (¶

This puts the cassette deck (or MD recorder) into recording pause.
If you do not press the record (¶) button and pause (8) button at the same time, the
synchronized recording feature will not operate.
3) button on the CD player or on the turntable.
3. Press the play (3
The source changes on the receiver, and as soon as play starts, the cassette deck (or
MD recorder) starts recording. When the play ends, the cassette deck (or MD
recorder) enters recording pause, and stops about 4 seconds later.

98.3.31, 2:07 PM
Notes:
• During synchronized
recording, the selected source
cannot be changed.
• If your CD player is playing in
program mode, a 4-second
blank is recorded between
tracks so that the music scan
feature of your cassette deck
can be used on the recorded
tape.
• If the power of any component
is shut off during synchronized
recording, the COMPU LINK
remote control system may
not operate properly. In this
case, you must start again
from the beginning.
The TEXT COMPU LINK remote control system has been newly developed to deal with the disc information
recorded in the CD Text* and MDs. Using these information in the discs, you can operate the CD player or
MD recorder equipped with the TEXT COMPU LINK remote control system through the receiver.
CONNECTIONS:
*What is a CD Text?
In a CD Text, some information
about the disc (its disc title,
performer, composer, arranger,
etc.) is recorded.
To use this remote control system, you need to connect the CD player and/or MD
recorder you want to operate, following the procedures below.
1. If you have already plugged your CD player, MD recorder, and this receiver
into the AC outlets, unplug their AC power cords first.
2. Connect your CD player, MD recorder, and this receiver as follows, through the
COMPU LINK-3 (SYNCHRO) jacks and TEXT COMPU LINK jacks.
1) COMPU LINK-3 (SYNCHRO) jacks: Use the cables with the monaural miniplugs (not supplied with this receiver)

IMPORTANT:
Set the Master/Slave Selector on the rear to “1(MASTER UNIT).”
• “2(SLAVE UNIT)” is just for the serviceman’s use. The TEXT
COMPU LINK remote control system does not function with
the selector set to “2(SLAVE UNIT).”
Notes:
• If your audio component has
two COMPU LINK-3
(SYNCHRO) jacks, you can
use either one. If it has only
one COMPU LINK-3
(SYNCHRO) jack, connect it
so that it is the last item in the
series of components. (For
example, the CD player in the
diagram to the left.)
• If your audio component has
two TEXT COMPU LINK
jacks, you can use either one.
If it has only one TEXT
COMPU LINK jack, connect it
so that it is the last item in the
series of components. (For
example, the CD player in the
diagram to the left.)
• Refer also to the manuals
supplied with your CD player
or MD recorder.
3. Connect your CD player, MD recorder and this receiver, using the cables with
RCA pin plugs (see page 14).
4. Plug the AC power cords of these components above into the AC outlets.
5. When turning on these components for the first time, turn on the connected
components first, then turn on this receiver.
FUNCTIONS:
This remote control system allows you to use the functions listed below.
Displaying the Disc Information on the TV screen

With this disc search, you can easily find the disc you want to play.
Note:
If you turn on the receiver before
turning on the other components
after connecting components,
the TEXT COMPU LINK remote
control system does not work
correctly.
If this happens:
1. Turn off the all components
including this receiver.
2. Turn on the connected
components.
3. Turn on this receiver.
