on the TV screen. Some DVDs that have no region
code label may still be subject to area restrictions and
therefore not playable.

INTRODUCTION
Disc-related terms
Before Use (Continued)
Precautions
Cleaning discs
Handling the unit
Fingerprints and dust on the disc can cause poor picture
quality and sound distortion. Before playing, clean the disc
with a clean cloth. Wipe the disc from the center out.
When shipping the unit
The original shipping carton and packing materials
come in handy. For maximum protection, re-pack the
unit as it was originally packaged at the factory.
When setting up the unit
The picture and sound of a nearby TV, VCR, or radio
may be distorted during playback. In this case, position
the unit away from the TV, VCR, or radio, or turn off the
unit after removing the disc.
To keep the surface clean
Do not use volatile liquids, such as insecticide spray,
near the unit. Do not leave rubber or plastic products in
contact with the unit for a long period of time. They will
leave marks on the surface.
Cleaning the unit
To clean the cabinet
Use a soft, dry cloth. If the surfaces are extremely dirty,
use a soft cloth lightly moistened with a mild detergent
solution. Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol,
benzine, or thinner, as these might damage the surface
of the unit.
To obtain a clear picture
The DVD/VCR Receiver is a high-tech, precision
device. If the optical pick-up lens and disc drive parts
are dirty or worn, the picture quality will be poor.
Regular inspection and maintenance are recommended
after every 1,000 hours of use. (This depends on the
operating environment.)
For details, please contact your nearest dealer.
No
Yes
Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol, benzine,

Connections
Depending on your TV and other equipment you wish to
connect, there are various ways you could connect the
DVD/VCR Receiver. Use connections described on pages
11-14.
Please refer to the manuals of your TV, VCR, Stereo
System or other devices as necessary to make the best
connections.
If your cable wire is connected to your TV without a converter
or descrambler box, unscrew the wire from your TV and attach
it to the ANTENNA IN jack on the DVD/VCR Receiver. Use the
supplied round coaxial cable to connect between the
DVD/VCR Receiver’s ANTENNA OUT jack and the 75 ohm
antenna input jack on the TV. With this connection, you can
receive all midband, super band, and hyperband channels.

Speaker System Connections
Speaker Positioning
Connect the speakers using the supplied speaker cords
by matching the colors of the terminals and those of the
cords. To obtain the best possible surround sound,
adjust the speaker parameters (distance, level, etc.).
For a normal setup use 6 speakers (2 front speakers,
center speaker, 2 rear speakers and subwoofer).
Notes
Be sure to match the speaker cord to the appropriate
terminal on the components: 3 to 3 and # to #. If
the cords are reversed, the sound will be distorted
and lack bass.
If you use front speakers with low maximum input rating, adjust the volume carefully to avoid excessive
volume output to the speakers.
Do not disassemble the front covers of supplied speakers.
Front Speaker
(Right)
Center
Speaker
Front Speaker
(Left)
• Front Speakers
Based on your listening position, set up the speakers
at equal distance. And by hearing position, set up an
interval between speakers of 45 degree.
• Center Speaker
It is ideal that the center speakers and front speakers
are same height. But normally place it above or below
the television as shown below.
• Rear Speakers
Place the rear surround speakers to the left and right
behind the primary listening area. These speakers
recreate sound motion and atmosphere required for
surround playback. For best results, do not install the
rear speakers too far behind the listening position,
install them at or above the level of the listener’s ears.
It is also effective to direct the rear speakers towards
a wall or ceiling to further disperse the sound.
In the case of a smaller room size, if the audience is
near to the rear wall set the rear speakers opposite
each other, and set the rear speakers 60 - 90 cm
above the listener’s ears.

Before Operation - Sound Mode Descriptions
Mini Glossary for Audio Stream &
Surround mode
(DTS)
Allows you to enjoy 5.1(or 6) discrete channels of high quality
digital audio from DTS program sources such as discs, DVD
and compact discs, etc.bearing the trademark. DTS Digital
Surround delivers up to 6 channels of transparent audio(which
means identical to the original masters) and results in exceptional clarity throughout a true 360 degree sound field. The
term DTS is a trademark of DTS Technology, LLC.
Manufactured under license from DTS Technology, LLC.
(Dolby Digital)
The Dolby Digital surround format lets you enjoy up to 5.1
channels of digital surround sound from a Dolby Digital program source. If you play DVDs with “
” mark, you can
enjoy even better sound quality, greater spatial accuracy, and
improved dynamic range.
(Dolby Pro Logic)
Use this mode when playing movie or Dolby Digital 2 channel
which carries the “
” mark. This mode provides the effect
of being in a movie theatre or live concert house-an effect with
an intensity which can only be obtained through DOLBY PRO
LOGIC SURROUND. The effect of the front/back/left/right
movement of the sound image, as well as the sense of fixed
position in the sound image, is much clearer and more
dynamic than before.
(Dolby Pro Logic II)
Dolby Pro Logic II creates five full-bandwidth output channels
from two-channel sources. This is done using an advanced,
high-purity matrix surround decoder that extracts the spatial
properties of the original recording without adding any new
sounds or tonal colorations.
MOVIE mode:
The Movie mode is for use with stereo television shows and
all programs encoded in Dolby Surround. The result is
enhanced soundfield directionality that approaches the quality of discrete 5.1-channel sound.
MUSIC mode:
The Music mode is for use with any stereo music recordings,
and provides a wide and deep sound space. The Music
mode includes controls that allow the sound to be tailored to
individual listening tastes.
MATRIX mode:
The Matrix mode is the same as the Music mode except that
the directional enhancement logic is turned off. It may be
used to enhance mono signals by making them seem “larger.” The Matrix mode may also find use in auto systems,
where the fluctuations from poor FM stereo reception can
otherwise cause disturbing surround signals from a logic
decoder. The ultimate “cure” for poor FM stereo reception
may be simply to force the audio to mono.
3D SURROUND
This unit can produce a 3D Surround effect, using 3D Surround
Sound technology, which simulates multi-channel audio playback from two conventional stereo speakers instead of the five
or more speakers normally required to listen to multi-channel
audio from a home theatre. This feature works with DVD discs
encoded with Dolby Pro Logic and Dolby Digital audio tracks.
BYPASS
Software with multichannel surround audio signals is played
according to the way it was recorded.

Sound Mode
You can enjoy surround sound simply by selecting one
of the pre-programmed sound fields according to the
program you want to listen to.
Press SOUND FIELD on the remote control repeatedly
until the sound mode you want appears in the display
window as below.
Each time you press SOUND FIELD button, the sound
mode is changed in the following order;
BYPASS → PRO LOGIC → MOVIE → MUSIC → MATRIX →
3D SURROUND
When DVD is inserted.
You can change the sound mode of DVD (Dolby Digital, DTS,
PRO LOGIC, etc) by pressing the AUDIO button on the remote
during playback.
Although the DVD contents differ from disc to disc, the following explains the basic operation when this feature is used.
Each time you press AUDIO button, the sound mode of DVD is
changed as the following order;

For your reference
• The DVD/VCR Receiver memorizes the last mode
settings for each source individually.
• You can identify the encoding format of program
software by looking at its packaging.
- Dolby Digital discs are labelled with the
logo.
- Dolby Surround encoded programs are labelled
with the
logo.
- DTS Digital Surround discs are marked with

Note
When you play sound tracks with 96kHz sampling frequency,
the output signals will be converted to 48kHz (sampling
frequency).

AUDIO MODE
The DVD/VCR Receiver has two separate audio playback systems, the high quality VHS Hi-Fi system and standard NORMAL mono system. The same audio is generally recorded on
both systems. The VHS Hi-Fi system plays on separate (left
and right) channels, and the NORMAL system plays monaural
sound. The normal track is always played so the cassette can
be played on a DVD/VCR Receiver that does not have VHS
Hi-Fi.
AUDIO MODE can be switched between HI-FI and
NORMAL using B/b.
BROADCAST TYPE (STEREO/SAP/MONO)
Multichannel Television Sound (MTS) carries stereo and/or
Second Audio Program (SAP) bilingual signals. Set this display to
the desired position when both MTS stereo and SAP signals are
received. When only one of the MTS signal is received, the
DVD/VCR Receiver automatically selects the corresponding
receiving mode (Stereo or SAP) regardless of the selected position. For normal operation, the display should be in the STEREO
position. The DVD/VCR Receiver will then record a STEREO program when available, and record a mono program IF the program is
NOT IN STEREO.
For weak STEREO and/or SAP broadcasts, changing the display to mono may give clearer sound.
BROADCAST TYPE can be switched between STEREO,
SAP, and MONO using B/b.
AUDIO OUTPUT (STEREO/LEFT/RIGHT)
Used during playback [when AUDIO MODE (HI-FI/NORMAL) is
in HI-FI position] for selecting the audio output signals from the
AUDIO OUT terminals (L ch and R ch), and ANTENNA OUT.
This display setting should normally be left in the stereo position, so that when a stereo tape is played, the stereo sound will
be heard through the left and right channels. If a mono tape is
played and the audio output is set to stereo, the same mono
sound will be heard from both left and right channels.
AUDIO OUTPUT can be switched between STEREO, LEFT,

With the DVD format, you can hear a program’s soundtrack in the most accurate and realistic presentation
possible, thanks to digital audio technology. However,

Notes on MP3 Files
About MP3
An MP3 file is audio data compressed by using the
MPEG1 audio layer-3 file-coding scheme. We call
files that have the “.mp3” file extension “MP3 files”.
The DVD/VCR Receiver can not read an MP3 file
that has a file extension other than “.mp3”.
MP3 Disc compatibility with this DVD/VCR
Receiver is limited as follows:
Sampling Frequency : only at 44.1kHz
Bit rate : within 32 - 320kbps
CD-R physical format should be “ISO 9660”
If you record MP3 files using the software which cannot create a FILE SYSTEM, for example “Direct-CD”
etc., it is impossible to playback MP3 files. We recommend that you use “Easy-CD Creator”, which creates an ISO9660 file system.
A single session disc requires MP3 files in the first
track. If there is no MP3 file in the 1st track, it cannot
playback MP3 files. If you wish to playback MP3
files, format all the data in the disc or use a new one.
File names should be named using 8 letters or less
and must incorporate “.mp3” extension
e.g. “********.mp3”.
Do not use special letters such as “/ : * ? “ < > ” etc.
Total number of files on the disc should be less than
650.
This DVD/VCR Receiver requires discs/recordings to
meet certain technical standards in order to achieve
optimal playback quality. Pre-recorded DVDs are automatically set to these standards. There are many different types of recordable disc formats (including CD-R
containing MP3 files). That require certain pre-existing
conditions (see above) to insure compatible playback.
Customers should also note that permission is
required in order to download MP3 files and music
from the Internet. Our company has no right to
grant such permission. Permission should always
be sought from the copyright owner.
