Before Use
Be sure to disconnect the mains cord before adjusting the voltage
selector,
Use a minus (—) screwdriver to set the voltage selector (on the
rear panel) to the voltage setting for the area in which the unit will
be used.
Precautions
Before using this unit please read these operating instructions
carefully. Take special care to foliow the warnings indicated on the
unit itself as well as the safety suggestions listed below.
Afterwards keep them handy for future reference.
Safety
(If the power supply in your area is 117 V or 120 V, set to the “127
V" position.)
Note that this unit will be seriously damaged if this setting is not
made correctly.
1. Power Source -- The unit should be connected to power supply
only of the type described in the operating instructions or as
marked on the unit.
2. Polarization -- If the unit is equipped with a polarized AC power
plug (a piug having one blade wider than the other), that plug will
fit into the AC outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you
are unable to insert the plug fully into the outiet, try reversing the
plug. if the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to
replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of
the polarized plug.
3. Power Cord Protection -- AC 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. Never take hold of the plug or
cord if your hand is wet, and always grasp the plug body when
connecting or disconnecting it.
4. Nonuse Periods -- When the unit is not used, turn the power off.
When left unused for a long period of time, the unit should be
unplugged from the household AC outlet.

Environment
1. Qutdoor Antenna Grounding -- If an outside antenna is
connected to the receiver, be sure the antenna system is
grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage
surges and built-up static charges. Section 810 of the National
Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1990, provides information
with respect 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 below.

Automatic memory presetting
Have you completed the steps (on page 18) of
“Basic Operating Procedure” ?
When this method is used, the frequencies of the selected broad-
cast stations are automatically preset (in sequence from lower to
higher frequencies) into memory: “channels” 1 to 30 are available
for the presetting of FM stations, and “channels” 21 to 30 are
available for AM stations.
When a presetting is made to a channel that has already been
preset, the prior presetting will be erased, so If, for example, FM fre-
quencies are preset to channel! 1 to 30 and then AM frequencies
are preset, the first AM frequency will be preset to channel 21 (thus
erasing the FM presetting to channel 21), the second AM frequen-
cy will be preset to 22 (erasing FM 22), and so on.

frequency from which you want to start
automatic memory presetting.
In “AUTO” mode, the next station, higher or lower in broad-
cast frequency, will be automatically tuned in.
In “MANUAL” mode, the frequency will change, using the
smallest step available, only as the tuning control is being
turned. This will allow you to tune in all of the broadcast
frequencies available in that band.
Press the memory button until the frequency
begins to change.
(Automatic memory presetting will start.)
For automatic pressetting in areas where there are fewer than 30
stations for FM broadcasts, the remaining channels will be left
unused. The unused channels can be filled by following steps 2
through 6 (on page 21.)
The back-up function maintains the preset memory and the most-
recent memory (see below) when the power is switched OFF, in the
event of a power failure, or if the power cord is disconnected.
The memory will be maintained for as long as approximately one
month.
Most-recent memory
The most-recent memory system “remembers” the broadcast sta-
tion last tuned to when the unit was switched OFF. That station will
be automatically tuned to when the power is switched ON.
It frequency presettings are accidentally erased

This is the bass sound range. When this level is increased, the

- Concerning Sound Mode Operation
There are two modes available for this unit.
Select the one of your choice.
Surround-sound mode
The surround-sound system functions impart presence and spread
and thereby enhance and enrich the music.
There are four surround-sound modes available for this unit.
Select the one of your choice.
DOLBY (Dolby Pro-Logic):
Uses a circuit that was developed for sound and video recording
used in cinemas. This is the most appropriate mode for playback
of tracks encoded with Dolby surround.
HALL:
From classical to pop, to rock, this function imparts a deep bass
and spread which will make you feel as if you are in a large concert
hall.
In order to enjoy the maximum benefit of these functions, we
recommend you install rear speakers (not included) and a center
speaker (not included).
The center speaker only works with the Dolby Pro-Logic Surround.
CLUB:
Primarily for vocal pieces, this function adds gloss to the vocals
and you'll feel as though you were hearing a live stage perfor-
mance.
STADIUM:
When listening to baseball or football relay broadcasts, this
function. automatically sets the appropriate bass level for the
announcer's voice (mono) and audience cheers (stereo). It is
also effective for sources with the DJ's voice mixed in with the
music.
Dolby 3 stereo mode
When playing back with this mode, the front signals become clear
and sharp, without any “sound hole” effects that 2-channel
reproduction may cause. tf the speakers are placed on both sides of
the TV, regardless of the distance between the speakers or a place
in which you watch and listen, the optimum stereo effects and
channel separation will be realized.
Positioning the speakers
The illustration at the right Is an example when enjoying Dolby Pro-
Logic Surround-sound.
When enjoying Dolby 3 stereo sound, the rear speaker is not
necessary.

Concerning the Remote Control
- Battery installation
Open the
Insert the Close the
batteries. cover.
1 Open the cover.
Press the lever and move the cover in the direction of the
arrow.
2 Insert the batteries.
Use four manganese batteries [R03 (UM-4) "AAA" 1.6 V].
Use of batteries
Be sure that the batteries are inserted so that their positive
(+) and negative {—) polarities match the polarities indicated
in the compartment. Batteries installed incorrectly may leak
and cause damage.
Refer to “Use of batteries" for additional information.
3 Close the cover.
Do not mix old and new batteries, or batteries of different types
(carbon and manganese, etc.).
Always remove old, weak or worn-out batteries promptly and
dispose of them properly.
The battery life is about 6 months.
Although the battery life varies depending on how often the device
is used, the batteries should be replaced about once every 6
months on the average.
Because a fairly large power is required in order to enter other
remote-control signals into the memory of this unit, note that the
batteries will weaken faster if such memory entries are made
often.
The batteries should be replaced if commands from the remote
control transmitter do not operate the unit even when the transmit-
ter is held close to the front panel or when the display becomes
dim during operation.
Never subject batteries to excessive heat or flame; do not attempt
to disassemble them; and be sure they are not short-circuited.
Since this unit retains the memory of the “learning” keys for about
one hour from the time the batteries are removed, when replace-
ment is necessary, be sure to have the new batteries ready at hand
before removing the old batteries.
If the memorized codes are erased by not replacing the batteries
quickly, reprogram this unit again. The original pre-programmed
remote-control codes are not erased.
If a battery leaks, remove all batteries and dispose of them
properly. Thoroughly clean the battery compartment before
inserting new batteries.
If the electrolyte comes into contact with skin or clothes, flush with
water immediately.
Keep batteries out of reach of children.
Do not use rechargeable (nickel-cadmium) type batteries.
