Front speakers

Place on the left and right of the TV at seated ear height so that there is good coherency between the picture and sound.

Center speaker

Place underneath or above the center of the TV. Aim the speaker at the seating area.

Surround speakers

Place on the side of or slightly behind the listening position, about one meter higher than ear level.

Subwoofer

The subwoofer can be placed in any position as long as it is at a reasonable distance from the TV.

Note that some experimentation can yield the smoothest low frequency performance. Placement near a corner can increase the apparent output level, but can result in unnatural bass.

Connecting speakers

Other connections are possible depending on your speaker system.

See your speaker system’s operating instructions for details.

DSP sound modes

This unit’s digital signal processor (DSP) has the following three modes–STEREO, SURROUND and SFC.

A

STEREO mode

Use this mode when you want to listen to stereo sources, whether they are digital or analogue, or when you want to play Dolby

Digital or DTS sources through two channels. The sounds usually fed through the other speakers are down-mixed so they are output through the left and right front speakers. There may be some change in the overall sound when surround sources are downmixed.

B

SURROUND mode

By selecting this mode while digital input is being used, the unit automatically determines the kind of digital source being used

(Dolby Digital, Dolby Surround, or DTS), and processes it accordingly. Select this mode also when you are playing an analogue source, VCR for example, that has been recorded in

Dolby Surround.

Software with the following marks can be played back in this mode.

The type of program can be displayed. This signal can also be used to search for a type of program ( a

page 33). See page 35 for more information about the PTY displays.

¡

EON (Enhanced other networks):

This signal is used between networked stations to make it easier for listeners to tune into a type of program ( a

page 34).

¡

RT (Radio text):

This is text transmitted by the station. This unit can show a maximum of 64 characters by scrolling it across the screen. The text could be information about the song playing, traffic and weather reports, phone-in numbers, or police information.

Some areas currently do not have PTY, EON, and RT.
