Connecting the Speakers
You can connect the following speakers:
• Two sets of front speakers to produce normal stereo sound
• One set of rear speakers to enjoy the surround effect
• One center speaker to produce more effective surround effect (to make human voices outstanding)
• One subwoofer to enhance the bass
For each speaker (except for subwoofer), connect one end of the speaker signal cable (not supplied) to the
speaker terminal on the rear panel and the other end to the speaker. (For connecting a subwoofer, see page 7.)
1. Open each terminal.
2. Insert the end of the speaker signal cable as shown (be sure to remove the insulation at the end
of each wire first).
3. Close the terminals to clamp the speaker signal cables firmly in place.
4. Connect the black (–) and red (+) terminals on the rear panel to the black (–) and red (+)
terminals marked on the speakers.
CAUTION:
When connecting speakers, use speakers with the same SPEAKER IMPEDANCE indicated by
the speaker terminals.

Connecting Audio Components for the COMPU LINK-3 Remote Control System
The COMPU LINK-3 remote control system allows you to control other JVC audio components from the
receiver or vice versa. To use this system, connect your JVC audio components and the receiver with the cable
(monaural mini-plug) supplied with those components.
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 and the CD player in the diagram below).
Notes:
• The COMPU LINK-3 remote control system is the upgraded version of the COMPU LINK-1 and COMPU
LINK-2. Even if your component has the COMPU LINK-1 or COMPU LINK-2 jacks, you can still connect
it in the COMPU LINK-3 remote control system, but some functions may not work correctly.
• For more information about the COMPU LINK-3 (-1 and -2) remote control system, see page 31.

AA (15F) 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 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
About characters shown on the display
When the display shows PS, PTY, or RT signals, the following characters are used.
• The display cannot differentiate upper case and lower case letters and always uses upper case letters.
• The display cannot show accented letters, “A”, for instance, may stand for accented “A’s” like “Å, Ä,

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
Early reflections
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
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.
Direct sound
* Manufactured under license from Dolby Laboratories Licensing
Corporation. “Dolby,” the double-D symbol, and “Pro Logic” are
trademarks of Dolby Laboratories Licensing Corporation.
Notes:
• The surround processor has no effect on monaural sources.
• The surround processor cannot be used for recording.
Using JVC’s Hall Surround
You need to connect one set of rear speakers to obtain the full effect.
Once you have adjusted the Hall Surround, the receiver memorizes the settings.
On the front panel:
1. Press SURROUND so that the Control % / fi / @ / # buttons work for selecting the surround
modes.
The lamp above the button lights up.

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 LINK3 SYNCHRO jacks with the cables (monaural mini-plug supplied with those components):
COMPU LINK – 3
SYNCHRO
CD player
Cassette deck
Turntable
This remote control system allows you to use the four functions listed below.
7 Remote Control through the Remote Sensor on the Receiver
You can control JVC 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 page 32.
Notes:
• Without connecting the audio components with RCA pin plugs as described on page 7, the COMPU LINK
remote control system cannot operate the components.
• Refer also to the manuals supplied with your audio components.
7 Automatic Source Selection
3) button on a connected component or on its own remote control, the receiver
When you press the play (3
automatically turns on and changes its 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.
7 Automatic Power On/Off (Standby) (only possible with the COMPU LINK-3 connection)
Both the CD player and cassette deck turn on and off (into standby mode) with the receiver.
When you turn on the receiver, the CD player or cassette deck will turn on automatically, depending which
component has been previously selected.
When you turn off the receiver (into standby mode), both the CD player and cassette deck will turn off (into
standby mode).
7 Synchronized Recording
Synchronized recording means the cassette deck starts recording as soon as a CD or 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 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.
• Refer also to the manuals supplied with your CD player and cassette deck.
