Placement of speakers
SPEAKERS
ENGLISH
How you set up your speakers can affect the bass and the sound field. Note the following points:
• Place speakers on flat secure bases.
• Placing speakers too close to floors, walls, and corners can result in excessive bass. Cover walls and
windows with thick curtains.
GETTING STARTED
SETUP EXAMPLE
Place the front, center, and surround speakers
at approximately the same distance from the
seating position. The angles in the diagram are
approximate.

CENTER
SUBWOOFER
• Other speaker setup options (\ page 10).
Main unit
• Keep your speakers at least 10 mm away from the
system for proper ventilation.
• To allow proper ventilation and to maintain good
airflow around the main unit, position it with at least
5 cm of space on all sides.
• Do not block the ventilation holes of the main unit.
Center speaker
• Vibration caused by the center speaker can disrupt
the picture if it is placed directly on the television.
Put the center speaker on a rack or shelf.
• To prevent the speakers from falling, do not place
directly on top of the television.
Subwoofer
• Place to the right or left of the television, on the
floor or a sturdy shelf so that it will not cause
vibration. Leave a space of 30 cm from the
television.
Caution
• Refrain from holding
the speaker’s net.
Example: Front speaker
Note
• You can damage your speakers and shorten their
useful life if you play sound at high levels over
extended periods.
• Reduce the volume in the following cases to avoid
damage:
– When playing distorted sound.
– When the speakers are reverberating due to
a record player, noise from FM broadcasts, or
continuous signals from an oscillator, test disc, or
electronic instrument.
– When adjusting the sound quality.
– When turning the unit on or off.
If irregular coloring occurs on your television
The front and center speakers are designed to
be used close to a television, but the picture
may be affected with some televisions and setup
combinations.
If this occurs, turn the television off for about 30
minutes.
The television’s demagnetizing function should
correct the problem. If it persists, move the speakers
further away from the television.
Caution
• Use the speakers only with the recommended
system. Failure to do so can damage the
amplifier and speakers, and can cause fire.
Consult a qualified service person if damage
occurs or if a sudden change in performance
is apparent.
• Do not attempt to attach these speakers
to walls using methods other than those
described in this manual.
RQTX0029
• Use only supplied speakers
Using other speakers can damage the unit, and
sound quality will be negatively affected.
• Set the speakers up on an even surface to prevent
them from falling. Take proper precautions to
prevent the speakers from falling if you cannot set
them up on an even surface.

Making the connections
GETTING STARTED
ENGLISH
Connect the AC mains lead only after all other connections have been made.
• Ensure that you have the complete accessories before making the connections.
Conserving power
The main unit consumes a small amount of power, even when it is in standby mode (approx. 1 W). To save
power when the unit is not to be used for a long time, unplug it from the household mains socket. You will
need to reset some memory items after plugging in the unit.
Connect to the power supply.
BE SURE TO READ THE NOTE ON AC MAINS LEAD ON PAGE 3
BEFORE CONNECTION.
Note
The included AC mains lead is for use with this unit only. Do not use it with other equipment.
To household mains socket
Connect to the speakers.
Attach the speaker-cable stickers to make connection easier.
Be careful not to cross (short-circuit) or
reverse the polarity of the speaker wires
as doing so may damage the speakers.

Glossary
DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
This surround system is used in many movie theaters
around the world. There is good separation between
the channels, so realistic sound effects are possible.
Dynamic range
Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest
level of sound that can be heard above the noise of
the equipment and the highest level of sound before
distortion occurs.
Film and video
DVD-Videos are recorded using either film or video.
This unit can determine which type has been used,
then uses the most suitable method of progressive
output.
Film: Recorded at 25 frames per second (PAL
discs) or 24 frames per second (NTSC discs).
(NTSC discs recorded at 30 frames per
second as well). Generally appropriate for
motion picture films.
Video: Recorded at 25 frames/50 fields per second
(PAL discs) or 30 frames/60 fields per second
(NTSC discs). Generally appropriate for TV
drama programs or animation.
Linear PCM (Pulse Code Modulation)
These are uncompressed digital signals, similar to
those found on CDs.
MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3)
An audio compression method that compresses
audio to approximately one tenth of its size without
any considerable loss of audio quality.
Playback control (PBC)
If a Video CD has playback control, you can select
scenes and information with menus.
Sampling frequency
Sampling is the process of converting the heights
of sound wave (analog signal) samples taken at set
periods into digits (digital encoding).
Sampling frequency is the number of samples taken
per second, so larger numbers mean more faithful
reproduction of the original sound.
WMA (Windows MediaTM Audio)
WMA is a compression format developed by
Microsoft Corporation. It achieves the same sound
quality as MP3 with a file size that is smaller than that
of MP3.
RQTX0029
Frame still and field still
Frames are the still pictures that go together to make
a moving picture.
There are about 30 frames shown each second.
One frame is made up of two fields. A regular
television shows these fields one after the other to
create frames.
A still is shown when you pause a moving picture.
A frame still is made up of two alternating fields, so
the picture may appear blurred, but overall quality is
high.
A field still is not blurred, but it has only half the
information of a frame still so picture quality is lower.
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)
This is a system used for compressing/decoding
color still pictures. If you select JPEG as the storage
system on digital cameras, etc., the data will be
compressed to 1/10–1/100 of its original size. The
benefit of JPEG is less deterioration in picture quality
considering the degree of compression.
ENGLISH
Dolby Digital
This is a method of coding digital signals developed
by Dolby Laboratories. Apart from stereo (2-channel)
audio, these signals can also be multi-channel audio.
A large amount of audio information can be recorded
on one disc using this method.
I/P/B
MPEG 2, the video compression standard adopted
for use with DVD-Video, codes frames using these 3
picture types.
I: Intra coded picture
This picture has the best quality and is the best to
use when adjusting the picture.
P: Predictive coded picture
This picture is calculated based on past I or Ppictures.
B: Bidirectionally-predictive coded picture
This picture is calculated by comparing past and
future I and P-pictures so it has the lowest volume
of information.
REFERENCE
Decoder
A decoder restores the coded audio signals on DVDs
to normal. This is called decoding.
