What these buttons actually do depends on which function
you are trying to adjust. Before using these buttons, select
the function by pressing one of the function selecting
buttons (5, 6, 7, p, q, r, u), and being sure its lamp is
lit.
However, pressing MENU (c on the remote control) overrides
the selected function and causes Control % / fi / @ / # button
to act like % / fi / @ / # buttons (v) of the ON SCREEN
CONTROL section of the remote control (though a lamp for
the selected function remains lit).
To return the Control % / fi / @ / # buttons to their usual
behavior under the selected function, press the function
button again.

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.
For each speaker (except for subwoofer), connect the black (–) and red (+) terminals on the rear panel to the
black (–) and red (+) terminals marked on the speakers. For connecting a subwoofer, see page 7.
CAUTION:
Use speakers with the SPEAKER IMPEDANCE indicated by the speaker terminals.
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).

Connecting the Power Cord
Before plugging the receiver into an AC outlet, make sure that all connections have been made.
When the power cord is connected, the STANDBY lamp above the POWER button lights up.
Keep the power cord away from the connecting cables for the TV, VCR, and antenna. The power cord may
cause noise or screen interference. We recommend that you use a coaxial cable to connect the antenna, since
it is well-shielded against interference.
Notes:
• A small amount of power is always consumed even in standby mode. To switch off the power completely,
unplug the power cord from the AC outlet.
• If the power cord is unplugged or a power failure occurs, preset settings will be erased in a few days.
CAUTIONS:
• Do not touch the power cord with wet hands.
• Do not pull on the power cord to unplug the cord. When unplugging the cord, always grasp
the plug so as not to damage the cord.
Putting Batteries in the Remote Control
Before using the remote control, put two supplied batteries first. When using the remote control, aim the
remote control directly at the remote sensor on the receiver.
1. On the back of the remote control, remove the cover as illustrated.
2. Insert batteries. Make sure to observe the proper polarity: (+) to (+) and (–) to (–).
3. Replace the cover in.
R03 (UM-4)/AAA (24F)
+
-+
-
If the range or effectiveness of the remote control decreases, replace the batteries. Use two R03 (UM-4)/AAA
(24F) type dry-cell batteries.
CAUTIONS:
Follow these precautions to avoid leaking or cracking cells:
• Place batteries in the remote control so they match the polarity indicated: (+) to (+) and (–)
to (–).
• Use the correct type of batteries. Batteries that look similar may differ in voltage.
• Always replace both batteries at the same time.
• Do not expose batteries to heat or flame.

Using the Surround Processor
The built-in surround processor provides three types of surround programs — Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby 3Channel Logic, and JVC’s Hall Surround.
What is surround?
The sound heard in a concert hall or a movie theater consists of direct sound and indirect sound: early
reflections and reflections from behind. The reflected sounds are always delayed by the distances of the ceiling
and walls from the listener. These reflections are some of the most important elements of the acoustic
surround.
On JVC’s Hall Surround
In order to reproduce a more realistic sound field in your listening
room while playing an ordinary stereo source, JVC’s Hall Surround
has been designed to give you clear vocals and to create the
feeling of a concert hall. The sound is reproduced through the
front speakers and rear speakers.
Reflections
from behind
Early reflections
On Dolby Surround
Dolby Surround has been also developed to reproduce the
important elements of the acoustic surround at home.
To watch the soundtracks of video software bearing the mark
DOLBY SURROUND * which includes the same encoded surround
information as found in Dolby Stereo films, the receiver can
provide you with 2 Dolby Surround programs (Dolby Pro Logic
and Dolby 3ch Logic).
Dolby Pro Logic: Select this mode when the optional rear
speakers are connected (as well as a center speaker).
Dolby 3ch Logic: Select this mode when a center speaker is
connected without rear speakers.

* Manufactured under license from Dolby Laboratories Licensing
Corporation. Additionally licensed under Canadian patent number
1,037,877. “Dolby,” the double-D symbol, and “Pro Logic” are trademarks

• The surround processor has no effect on monaural sources.
• The surround processor cannot be used for recording.

Cassette deck
COMPU LINK – 3
(SYNCHRO)
Turntable
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 above.)
• Refer also to the manuals supplied with your audio components.
This remote control system allows you to use four functions listed below.
7
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. For details, see pages 38 and 39.

Both the CD player and cassette deck turn on and off along with the receiver.
When you turn on the receiver, the CD player or cassette deck 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 will turn off.
7
Synchronized Recording
Synchronized recording means the cassette deck 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, and a disc in the CD player (or a record on the turntable).
2 Press the record (¶) button and the pause (8) button on the cassette deck at the same time.
This puts the cassette deck into recording pause.
Note:
If you do not press the record (¶) button and pause (8) button at the same time, the synchronized recording
feature will not operate.
3 Press the play (3) button on the CD player or on the turntable.
The source changes on the receiver, and as soon as play starts, the cassette deck starts recording.
When the play ends, the cassette deck enters recording pause, and stops about 4 seconds later.
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.
