S3125A
and cart combination to overturn.
10. Ventilation – Slots and openings in the cabinet are
provided for ventilation and to ensure reliable operation
of the appliance and to protect it from overheating, and
these openings must not be blocked or covered. The
openings should never be blocked by placing the
appliance on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface.
The appliance should not be placed in a built-in
installation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper
ventilation is provided. There should be free space of at
least 20 cm (8 in.) and an opening behind the appliance.
11. Power Sources – The appliance should be operated
only from the type of power source indicated on the
marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power
supply to your home, consult your appliance dealer or
local power company.
12. Grounding or Polarization – The appliance may be
equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug (a
plug having one blade wider than the other). This plug
will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety
feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the
outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to
fit, contact your electrician to replace your outlet. Do not
defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.
13. Power-Cord Protection – Power-supply cords should be
routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched
by items placed upon or against them, paying particular
attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and
the point where they exit from the appliance.
14. Outdoor Antenna Grounding – If an outside antenna or cable
system is connected to the appliance, be sure the antenna or
cable system is grounded so as to provide some protection
against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Article 810
of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides
information with regard to proper grounding of the mast and
supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an
antenna-discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location
of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes,
and requirements for the grounding electrode. See FIGURE
1.
15. Lightning – For added protection for the appliance during a
lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for
long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and
disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent
damage to the appliance due to lightning and power-line
surges.
16. Power Lines – An outside antenna system should not be
located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric
light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power
lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system,
extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such
power lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.
17. Overloading – Do not overload wall outlets, extension
cords, or integral convenience receptacles as this can result
in a risk of fire or electric shock.
18. Object and Liquid Entry – Never push objects of any kind
into the appliance through openings as they may touch
dangerous voltage points or short-out parts that could result
in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on
the appliance.

yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you to
dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to
qualified service personnel.
20. Damage Requiring Service – Unplug the appliance form
the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service
personnel under the following conditions:
A. When the power-supply cord or plug is damaged,
B. If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the
appliance,
C. If the appliance has been exposed to rain or water,
D. If the appliance does not operate normally by following
the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that
are covered by the operating instructions as an improper
adjustment of other controls may result in damage and
will often require extensive work by a qualified technician
to restore the appliance to its normal operation,
E. If the appliance has been dropped or damaged in any
way, and
F. When the appliance exhibits a distinct change in
performance – this indicates a need for service.
21. Replacement Parts – When replacement parts are
required, be sure the service technician has used
replacement parts specified by the manufacturer or have
the same characteristics as the original part.
Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric
shock, or other hazards.
22. Safety Check – Upon completion of any service or
repairs to the appliance, ask the service technician to
perform safety checks to determine that the appliance is
in proper operation condition.
23. Wall or Ceiling Mounting – The appliance should be
mounted to a wall or ceiling only as recommended by the
manufacturer.
24. Heat – The appliance should be situated away from heat
sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or

Take special care to provide plenty of ventilation on all
sides of the unit especially when it is placed in an audio
rack. If ventilation is blocked, the unit may overheat and
malfunction.
• Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight or heating units
as the unit's internal temperature may rise and shorten
the life of the pickup.
• Avoid damp and dusty places and places directly affected
by vibrations from the speakers. In particular, avoid
placing the unit on or above one of the speakers.
• Be sure the unit is placed in a horizontal position. Never
place it on its side or on a slanted surface as it may
malfunction.
• When you place the unit near a TV, radio, or VCR, the
playback picture may become poor and the sound may
be distorted. In this case, place the unit away from the
TV, radio, or VCR.
8. Care
From time to time you should wipe the front and rear panels
and the cabinet with a soft cloth. For heavier dirt, dampen
a soft cloth in a weak solution of mild detergent and water,
wring it out dry, and wipe off the dirt. Following this, dry
immediately with a clean cloth.
Do not use rough material, thinners, alcohol or other
chemical solvents or cloths since these could damage the
finish or remove the panel lettering.
9. Notes on Handling
• When shipping the unit, use the original shipping carton
and packing materials. For maximum protection, repack
the unit as it was originally packed at the factory.
• Do not use volatile liquids, such as insect spray, near the

Positioning Speakers
■ Two speaker system
Two speaker systems (FRONT SPEAKERS A and FRONT SPEAKERS B) can be connected to the DVD Changer Receiver.
For example, you can place the FRONT SPEAKERS A system in the main room, and the FRONT SPEAKERS B system in a
second room.
The configuration of the FRONT SPEAKERS A system
The FRONT SPEAKERS A system consists of the front left, center, and right speakers, surround left and right speakers, and
subwoofer.
You can reproduce the sounds such as Dolby surround and DTS surround.
The configuration of the FRONT SPEAKERS B system
The FRONT SPEAKERS B system consists of the front left and right speakers.
You can reproduce only monaural and stereo sounds.
■ Standard speaker placement of the FRONT SPEAKERS A system
Speaker placement plays an important role in the reproduction of Surround sound. The placement of the speakers varies depending
on the size of the room and the wall coverings used in the room. The illustration below shows an example of a layout for standard
speaker placement. Refer to this example when you position the speakers in order to experience the best of Surround sound.
For ideal Surround effects, all speakers should be installed.
If a center speaker or subwoofer is not connected, the sound from the unused channel is properly distributed to the connected
speakers in order to reproduce the best Surround sound possible.
Front
The center speaker reproduces a richer sound image by enhancing the
perception of the sound's source and movement.
The left, right, and center speakers should face the seated listener and
be placed at ear level.
Sub-woofer
Front
left
Speaker
TV/Screen

Surround
The surround speakers reproduce the feel of a moving sound while
creating the sensation of being in the middle of the action.
Place the left and right surround speakers 3 feet (1 meter) above the
listener's ear level and facing toward the sides of the room, making sure
that the listener is within the speakers’ dispersion angle.
Subwoofer
Install a subwoofer with a built-in power amplifier for powerful bass
sounds.
The placement of the subwoofer does not affect the final quality of the
sound image much, therefore, you can install it wherever it is convenient.
Refer to the speakers’ instruction manuals for details.

position where you receive the clearest sound.
Put it as far away as possible from the unit, TVs, speaker cables, and power cords.
Connecting an AM Outdoor Antenna
An outdoor antenna will be more effective if it is stretched
horizontally above a window or outside.
Leave the supplied AM indoor antenna connected.
Note
To avoid the risk of lightning and electrical shock, grounding is
necessary. Follow item 14 of the "Important Safeguards" on page 2 when
you install an outdoor antenna.

Notes
•
•
•
•
Install the antenna well away from tall buildings and in an area where FM stations can directly be received.
Keep the antenna away from noise sources (neon signs, busy roads, etc.).
It is dangerous to put the antenna close to power lines. Keep it well away from power lines, transformers, etc.
To avoid the risk of lightning and electrical shock, grounding is necessary. Follow item 14 of the “Important Safeguards” on page 2
when you install the outdoor antenna.
Directional Iinkage
Do not use the same antenna for both FM and TV (or VCR) reception since the FM and TV (or VCR) signals can interfere with each
other. If you must use a common FM/TV (or VCR) antenna, use a directional linkage type splitter.

Enjoying the Sound Effects
The surround sound of the DVD Changer Receiver enables you to enjoy the presence of a movie theater or concert hall in your
room.
Before using any sound effect, make sure the Speaker Setup configurations have been set (see pages 24-26).
The speaker configuration is very important for the surround sound. See “Connecting Speakers” on page 16 and “Positioning
Speakers” on page 17.
Following are the sound systems the DVD Changer Receiver can reproduce.

• Some CD players (if connected to the DVD Changer Receiver)
and LD players may be unable to play DTS Surround sources
correctly even if you connect the player to the DVD Changer
Receiver digitally. In such a case, the digital signals (such as the
output level, sampling frequency, frequency response, etc.)
processed by the DVD Changer Receiver cannot be recognized as
DTS data by the DVD Changer Receiver and you may hear noise
instead of the proper sound.

To playback DTS Surround sound from connected equipment
such as an LD player, you must make the digital connection

Notes on DTS Surround
• If you play a DTS Surround encoded disc with the DVD Changer
Receiver, or a DTS encoded disc using a digitally connected
player, you may hear a noise for a short while until the DTS
decoder of the DVD Changer Receiver recognizes the DTS
encoded signal and starts operating. This is not a malfunction.
• If you play a DTS Surround source in fast reverse or fast forward,
pause, or skip a chapter or track, noise may be heard. This is not
a malfunction.
• Even when playback of the DTS Surround source stops and the
DTS signal transmission ends, the DVD Changer Receiver
remains in DTS mode and the DTS indicator remains lit. This is to
prevent noise when you pause, fast forward, fast reverse, or skip a
chapter or track of the playback source. Therefore, if the source
switches from the DTS signal to a PCM (2 channel digital stereo)
signal immediately, the PCM signal may not be played. In such a
case, stop playback for about three seconds, then resume
playback.
This is a new generation 5-channel surround system,
bridging the gap between the previous 4-channel (Left/Right
Front, Center and monaural surround channels) Pro Logic
surround and 5.1-channel Dolby Digital surround. Dolby Pro
Logic II provides the Movie mode optimized for viewing
movies and the Music mode optimized for listening to music.
In the Movie mode, the surround channel, which was
monaural and based on narrow band, is reproduced in stereo
so that the feeling of movement in the played movies is more
enhanced. In the Music mode, the surround channel
reproduces natural sound field even with 2-channel music
sources.
The Movie mode allows you to enjoy VHS and DVD software
marking as well as some of TV
carrying the
broadcast programs. The Music mode allows you to enjoy
stereo music from CD, etc.
Onkyo’s original Digital Signal Processing
(DSP) modes
The DVD Changer Receiver offers the following special
Onkyo sound effects for sources other than Dolby Digital and
DTS sounds.
Orchestra
This mode is suitable for classical and opera music. The
center channel is cut and the surround channels are
emphasized to widen the stereo image. It simulates a natural
reverberation as created in a large hall.
Unplugged
This mode is suitable for acoustic instrumental sounds,
vocals, and jazz music. By emphasizing the front stereo
image, it simulates the acoustics in front of the stage.
Studio
This mode is suitable for rock and popular music. Lively
sounds with a powerful acoustic image will make you feel as
if you are in a club.
TV Logic
This mode offers the realistic acoustics of a TV program
being aired in the TV studio. It enhances the entire surround
sound and clarity of conversation.
All Ch St (All Channel Stereo)
This mode is useful for background music. The front and
surround channels will create a stereo image.

■ TV Aspect
This sets the screen size (4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio) according
to the connected TV.
4 x 3 Letterbox:
Choose this setting if you would

Choose this setting if you want
the movie to fill the entire
screen of your TV. You won’t
see part of the picture
(particularly the right and left
edge).
Some disc produced in a wide
screen format can’t be cropped
in this fashion, which means the
black bars would appear at the
top and bottom of the screen.

Choose this setting if your DVD
Changer Receiver is connected
to a widescreen TV.
To clear password
1 Press the number buttons to enter password.
2 Select OK button and press ENTER.

Notes
• The displayable picture size is preset on each DVD-Video.
Therefore, the playback picture of some DVD-Video may not
conform to the picture size you select.
• When you play a DVD-Video recorded in the 4:3 picture size only,
the playback picture always appears in the 4:3 picture size
regardless of the TV shape setting.
• If you select “16:9 Widescreen” and you own a 4:3 TV set, the
DVD playback picture will be horizontally distorted during
playback. Images will appear to be horizontally compressed.
Make sure the TV Shape conforms to the actual TV in use.

Recording Using the Connected Equipment
You can record according to the following using the
connected recording equipment:
• Sound/picture of discs played back by the DVD
Changer Receiver,
• Sound of FM/AM programs, and
• Sound/picture of the connected source.
Note
• Many discs and sources are copy protected. Copy protected
sources are impossible to record.
Basic Recording Procedure
1
Set the recording equipment (MD
recorder, DAT, Cassette tape deck,
VCR, DVD recorder, CD recorder,
etc.) to recording pause.
2
Select the input source to be
recorded, then set it to play pause.
• To play and pause a DVD video, Video
CD, or audio CD, see page 33.
• To select an FM/AM program, see page
52.
• To select a connected source, see page
54.
Refer to the manuals of the connected
source equipment for instructions on how
to play and pause.
3
Release the recording pause set in
step 1 to start recording.
4
Start playback of the selected
source in step 2.
Notes
• If you select another input source during recording, the selected
source will be recorded.
• Sound effects described on pages 27 to 30 do not affect the
recorded sounds.
■ Recording the Picture and Sound from
Different Sources at the Same Time
■ Digital recording from the source connected
to the digital input connectors to the digital
recording equipment connected to the
digital output connector
The digital input connectors are as follows:
• The DIGITAL IN VIDEO 1 OPTICAL connector, and
• The DIGITAL IN VIDEO 2 COAXIAL connector.
The digital output connector is the DIGITAL OUT OPTICAL
connector.
Recording digital sound signals from sources connected to the
digital input connectors using digital recording equipment
connected to the digital output is possible unless:
• The recording is against SCMS (Serial Copy Management
System) rules (for details of SCMS rules, refer to the
manual of the digital recording equipment),
• The digital signals are in bitstream format (the recordable
digital signal format is PCM –– two channel digital stereo
sound signals), or
• The sampling frequency is out of the recordable range of
the recording equipment (for recordable sampling
frequency, refer to the manual of the digital recording
equipment). Note that the maximum signal frequency
output from the DVD Changer Receiver is 48 kHz.
■ Analog recording from a DVD Video played
using the DVD Changer Receiver DVD
The digital sound signals are converted to analog signals and
output to the analog output jacks unless the DVD video is
recorded in the DTS Surround.
Although the speakers can reproduce DTS Surround sounds,
DTS signals are not output to the analog output jacks.
The picture from the playing VIDEO 2 source is output
through the VIDEO 1 OUT jacks when you select any audio
source (TAPE/CD-R, FM or AM) or TV/LINE.
Play the VIDEO 2 source and select TAPE/CD-R, FM, AM or
TV/LINE, then you can record the picture from the VIDEO 2
source and the sound from the selected input source at the
same time, using the recording equipment connected to the
VIDEO 1 jacks.
55
Controlling other components connected
to the DVD Changer Receiver
The remote controller has two learning functions. One is
entering the signal number for a remote controller of
another brand that is pre-programmed. Another is a
normal learning function that enables the remote
controller to learn the codes from other remote
controllers.
Learning a Pre-programming Code
By learning a pre-programming code, you can make the
RC-504M remote controller able to operate a product from
another brand. The buttons that are used for operation are
given on the next page.
Caution
• With some brand’s components, some buttons may not
work correctly. In this case, program the command
separately.

When programming the commands of another remote
controller to the RC-504M remote controller, you must first
decide under which MODE button you want the commands to
be linked. In general, you will select the MODE button that
corresponds to the component you are programming.
After programming which MODE button to use, you will then
transfer the separate commands from the other remote
controller over to the RC-504M remote controller one at a
time. Each command is then programmed to a different button
on the RC-504M remote controller. Any button is
programmable for this step except for the four MODE buttons
(DVD, RCVR/VCR, TV, CBL/SAT).
Even after the commands have been memorized, keep your
old remote controller in a safe place. If for some reason the
commands are lost (e.g., when the batteries run down), it will
be necessary to memorize them once again.
1
Place the remote controller and the
remote controller for the other
device facing each other at a
distance of 2 to 6 inches (5 to 15
cm) apart.

Press the MODE button that you
pressed in step 2 to complete the
programming.
Operate the newly programmed
buttons to make sure the learning
function was performed properly.
Notes:
• The remote controller has 220 memory slots (4 modes x 55
buttons). Some remote controllers may have more commands
that can be remembered by the remote controller. In such cases,
it will be necessary for you to determine which commands are
more important than others. (According to the type of the remote
controller, 220 commands cannot be programmed.)
• If no button is pressed for more than 30 seconds during the
programming, or if you perform an invalid operation during
programming, the remote controller exits the programming mode.
Resume from Step 2.
• If a failure occurs during programming, the SEND/LEARN
indicator flashes three times quickly. Resume from Step 3.
• If a failure occurs five times in row during programming, the
remote controller exits the programming mode. Resume from
Step 3.
• If you try to program beyond the learning capacity of the remote
controller, the SEND/LEARN indicator flashes three times quickly.
• When you want to program a command to a button to which you
have already programmed a command, simply follow the same
procedure given and programming for that button will be
overwritten.
• The remote controller uses infrared rays to send its
commands, as do most other remote controllers. Though
most remote controller codes can be memorized by the
remote controller, be aware that some remote controllers use
a system that is quite different from the remote controller
and therefore may not be able to be programmed.
• Some remote controllers have a single button that performs
multiple functions (for example, the function may change
each time the button is pressed). If this is the case, each
function must be programmed to a separate button on the
remote controller.
• Once you have transferred the commands from the other
remote controller, refer to the instruction manual that came
with that product for instructions on how to operate that
product.
• Make sure both the remote controller and the other remote
controller have new batteries. If either of them has batteries
that are low, you may not be able to program the commands
of the other remote controller properly into the remote
controller.
See page 62 for how to erase the memorized commands from
all buttons.
