or malfunction.
Do not let liquids get into the unit. This can cause electric shock or malfunction. If this occurs, immediately disconnect the unit from the power supply and contact your dealer.
Do not spray insecticides onto or into the unit. They contain flammable
gases which can ignite if sprayed into the unit.
Service
Do not attempt to repair this unit by yourself. If sound is interrupted, indicators fail to light, smoke appears, or any other problem that is not covered
in these instructions occurs, disconnect the AC mains lead and contact your
dealer or an authorized service center. Electric shock or damage to the unit
can occur if the unit is repaired, disassembled or reconstructed by unqualified persons.

If irregular colouring occurs on your television
6
These speakers are designed to be used close to a television, but the
picture may be affected with some televisions and set-up 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.
Surround speaker (right)
Use only the supplied speakers.
Using other speakers can damage the unit and sound quality will be negatively affected.
Front speakers
Left and right front speakers are exactly same.
Surround speakers
Place either side of the listening position, or slightly to the rear, about
1 meter higher than ear level with the Technics logo facing toward the
listening position.
The effect varies with the type of music and the music source.
If you are unable to position the surround speakers as recommended, you
can put them near the front speakers and still achieve a surround-like
effect (➡ page 34, VIRTUAL REAR SURROUND).
Attaching to a wall
Set the speaker onto screws and slide through bracket to lock into
position.

Glossary
Decoder
WMA/MP3/JPEG information
A decoder restores the coded audio signals on DVDs to normal. This is
called decoding.
pDiscs must conform to ISO9660 level 1 or 2 (except for extended formats).
pThis unit is compatible with multi-session but if there are a lot of sessions it
takes more time for play to start. Keep the number of sessions to a minimum to avoid this.
[WMA]
pNoise may occur when playing WMA files.
pYou cannot play WMA files that are copy protected.
pWMA files must have the extension “.WMA” or “.wma”.
[MP3]
pThis unit is not compatible with ID3 tags.
pIf you play an MP3 track that includes still picture data, it will take some
time before the music itself starts playing and the elapsed time will not be
displayed during this time. Even after the track starts, the correct play time
will not be displayed.
pMP3 files must have the extension “.MP3” or “.mp3”.
[JPEG]
To view JPEG files on this unit:
—Take them on a digital camera that meets the DCF (Design rule for
Camera File system) standard. Some digital cameras have functions that
are not supported by the DCF standard like automatic picture rotation
which may render a picture un-viewable.
—Do not alter the files in any way or save them under a different name.
—Ensure they have the extension “.JPG” or “.jpg”, “.JPEG” or “.jpeg”.
pThis unit cannot display moving pictures, MOTION JPEG and other such
formats, still pictures other than JPEG (i.e. TIFF) or play associated sound.
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 multichannel audio. A large amount of audio information can be recorded on one
disc using this method.
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.
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.
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 (I-picture)
This picture has the best quality and is the best to use when adjusting
the picture.
P: Predictive coded picture (P-picture)
This picture is calculated based on past I or P-pictures.
B: Bidirectionally-predictive coded picture (B-picture)
This picture is calculated by comparing past and future I and
P-pictures so it has the lowest volume of information.
Linear PCM (pulse code modulation)
These are uncompressed digital signals, similar to those found on CDs.
Playback control (PBC)
If a Video CD has playback control, you can select scenes and information
with menus.
Naming folders and files
root
At the time of recording, give folders and file
names 3-digit prefixes in the order you want to
play them (this may not work at times).
