Notes:

• Any turntables incorporating a small-output cartridge such as an MC (moving-coil type) must be connected to this receiver through a commercial head amplifier or step-up transformer. Direct connection may result in insufficient volume.

• You can connect either a cassette deck or an MD recorder to the TAPE/MD jacks. When connecting an

MD recorder to the TAPE/MD jacks, change the source name, which will be shown on the display when selected as the source, to “MD.” See page

18 for details.

Video component connections

Use the cables with RCA pin plugs (not supplied).

Connect the white plug to the audio left jack, the red plug to the audio right jack, and the yellow plug to the video jack.

If your video components have S-video (Y/C-separation) terminals, connect them using

S-video cables (not supplied). Connecting these video components through the S-video input/output terminals will give you better picture playback (or recording) quality.

IMPORTANT:

This receiver is equipped with both the composite video and S-video input/output terminals for connecting video components.

You do not have to connect both the composite video and S-video terminals.

However, remember that the video signals from the composite video input

terminals are output only through the composite video output terminals, while the ones from the S-video input terminals are output only through the

S-video output terminals.

Therefore, if a recording video component and a playing video component are connected to the receiver through the different video terminals, you cannot record the picture from the playing component on the recording component. In addition, if the TV and a playing video component are connected to the receiver through the different video terminals, you cannot view the playback picture from the playing component on the TV.

To view and record the playback picture from the video component connected to the VCR2 jacks, you must connect the TV and the recording video component through the composite video terminals.

Connecting the TV and/or DBS tuner

You can connect either the TV or DBS tuner to the TV SOUND/DBS jacks.

Receiving Radio Broadcasts

Using the RDS (Radio Data System) to Receive FM Stations

RDS allows FM stations to send an additional signal along with their regular program signals. For example, the stations send their station names, as well as information about what type of program they broadcast, such as sports or music, etc.

When tuned to an FM station which provides the RDS service, the RDS indicator lights up on the display.

With the receiver, you can receive the following types of RDS signals.

PS (Program Service): shows commonly known station names

PTY (Program Type):

RT (Radio Text): shows types of broadcast programs shows text messages the station sends

EON (Enhanced Other Network): see page 31.

Note:

RDS may not operate correctly if the station tuned is not transmitting RDS signal properly or if the signal strength is weak.

What Information Can RDS Signals Provide?

You can see the RDS signals the station sends on the display.

To show the RDS signals

On the front panel:

Press DISPLAY MODE while listening to an FM station.

Each time you press the button, the display changes to show you the following information:

PS PTY RT Frequency

PHONIC mode, DAP (Digital Acoustic Processor) mode and Surround mode (Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic and JVC’s Theater Surround.)

On the 3D-PHONIC mode

The 3D-PHONIC mode gives you such a nearly surround effect as it is reproduced through the Dolby Surround decoder, which is widely used to reproduce sounds with a feeling of movement like those experienced in movie theaters. The 3D-PHONIC mode is the result of research on sound localization technology carried out at JVC for many years and makes it possible to reproduce the surround sound with only two front

speakers.

Notes:

• The DSP modes has no effect on monaural sources.

• You can not use the two types of the DSP modes at the same time.

IMPORTANT:

When recording the digital source, turn off the DSP mode.

On the DAP mode

The sound heard in a concert hall or club consists of direct sound and indirect sound

— early reflections and reflections from behind. Direct sounds reach the listener directly without any reflection. On the other hand, indirect sounds are delayed by the distances of the ceiling and walls. These direct sounds and indirect sounds are the most important elements of the acoustic surround effects. The DAP mode can create these important elements, and gives you a real “being there” feeling.

On Surround mode

With this receiver, you can use two types of the surround mode.

Dolby Surround (Dolby Digital and

Dolby Pro Logic)

Used to watch the soundtracks of software encoded with Dolby Digital (bearing the mark ) or with Dolby Surround

D I G I T A L

(bearing the mark

DOLBY SURROUND

).

Dolby Digital and Dolby Pro Logic can be selected automatically according to software played back.

JVC’s Theater Surround

In order to reproduce a more realistic sound field in your listening room while playing soundtracks of software encoded with Dolby Digital (bearing the mark ) or

D I G I T A L

with Dolby Surround (bearing the mark

DOLBY SURROUND

), Theater Surround has been designed to create a real “being there” feeling.

Note:

To enjoy the software encoded with Dolby Digital, you must connect the source component using the digital terminal on the rear of this receiver.

COMPU LINK Remote Control System

The COMPU LINK remote control system allows you to operate JVC audio components through the remote sensor on the receiver.

To use this remote control system, you need to connect JVC audio components through the COMPU LINK-3 (SYNCHRO) jacks (see below) in addition to the connections using cables with RCA pin plugs (see page 9) (and a digital cable if you want — see page 12).

• Make sure that the AC power cords of these components are unplugged before connection. Plug the AC power cords only after all connections are complete.

COMPU LINK – 3

(SYNCHRO)

CD player

Cassette deck or

MD recorder

Turntable

This remote control system allows you to use four functions listed below.

Remote Control through the Remote Sensor on the Receiver

You can control the connected audio components through the remote sensor on the receiver using this remote control. Aim the remote control directly at the remote sensor on the receiver. For details, see pages 63 and 64.

Automatic Source Selection

When you press the play (

3 control, the receiver automatically turns on and changes the source to the component.

On the other hand, if you select a new source on the receiver or the remote control, the selected component begins playing immediately.

In both cases, the previously selected source continues playing without sound for a few seconds.

Automatic Power On/Off (Standby): only possible with the COMPU

LINK-3 connection

Both the CD player and cassette deck (or MD recorder) turn on and off (standby) along with the receiver.

When you turn on the receiver, the CD player or cassette deck (or MD recorder) will turn on automatically, depending on which component has been previously selected.

When you turn off the receiver, both the CD player and cassette deck (or MD recorder) will turn off (standby).

Synchronized Recording

Synchronized recording means the cassette deck (or MD recorder) starts recording as soon as a CD or a record begins playing.

To use synchronized recording, follow these steps:

1. Put a tape in the cassette deck (or an MD in the MD recorder), and a disc in the

CD player (or a record on the turntable).

2. Press the record (

MD recorder) at the same time.

This puts the cassette deck (or MD recorder) into recording pause.

If you do not press the record (

¶) button and pause (8) button at the same time, the synchronized recording feature will not operate.

3. Press the play (

3

The source changes on the receiver, and as soon as play starts, the cassette deck (or

MD recorder) starts recording. When the play ends, the cassette deck (or MD recorder) enters recording pause, and stops about 4 seconds later.

Notes:

• If your audio component has two COMPU LINK-3

(SYNCHRO) jacks, you can use either one. If it has only one COMPU LINK-3

(SYNCHRO) jack, connect it so that it is the last item in the series of components. (For example, the turntable or CD player in the diagram to the left.)

• To operate the cassette deck or MD recorder using the

COMPU LINK remote control system, set the source name correctly. (See page 18.)

• Refer also to the manuals supplied with your audio components.

Notes:

• During synchronized recording, the selected source cannot be changed.

• If your CD player is playing in program mode, a 4-second blank is recorded between tracks so that the music scan feature of your cassette deck can be used on the recorded tape.

• If the power of any component is shut off during synchronized recording, the COMPU LINK remote control system may not operate properly. In this case, you must start again from the beginning.

TEXT COMPU LINK Remote Control System

The TEXT COMPU LINK remote control system has been newly developed to deal with the disc information recorded in the CD Text* and MDs. Using these information in the discs, you can operate the CD player or

MD recorder equipped with the TEXT COMPU LINK remote control system through the receiver.

CONNECTIONS:

To use this remote control system, you need to connect the CD player and/or MD recorder you want to operate, following the procedures below.

1. If you have already plugged your CD player, MD recorder, and this receiver into the AC outlets, unplug their AC power cords first.

2. Connect your CD player, MD recorder, and this receiver as follows, through the

COMPU LINK-3 (SYNCHRO) jacks and TEXT COMPU LINK jacks.

1) COMPU LINK-3 (SYNCHRO) jacks: Use the cables with the monaural miniplugs (not supplied with this receiver)

IMPORTANT:

Set the Master/Slave Selector on the rear to “1(MASTER UNIT).”

• “2(SLAVE UNIT)” is just for the serviceman’s use. The TEXT

COMPU LINK remote control system does not function with the selector set to “2(SLAVE UNIT).”

3. Connect your CD player, MD recorder and this receiver, using the cables with

RCA pin plugs (see page 9) (and a digital cable if you want — see page 12).

4. Plug the AC power cords of these components above into the AC outlets.

5. When turning on these components for the first time, turn on the connected components first, then turn on this receiver.

FUNCTIONS:

This remote control system allows you to use the functions listed below.

Displaying the Disc Information on the TV screen

Disc information such as its performer and disc title (and track titles only when a CD

Text is selected) is shown on the TV screen.

Disc Search: Only for CD Player

This remote control system can allow you to search discs by the performer, disc title, and music genre.

With this disc search, you can easily find the disc you want to play.

Additional Functions:

• If your CD player has the User File function, you can select a disc from the groups.

* A “user file” is a group of the discs you make as you like on the CD player.

• If your CD player has the disc memory function, you can input the performer, disc title, and music genre about these normal audio CDs on the TV screen.

*What is a CD Text?

In a CD Text, some information about the disc (its disc title, performer, composer, arranger, etc.) is recorded.

Notes:

• If your audio component has two COMPU LINK-3

(SYNCHRO) jacks, you can use either one. If it has only one COMPU LINK-3

(SYNCHRO) jack, connect it so that it is the last item in the series of components. (For example, the CD player in the diagram to the left.)

• If your audio component has two TEXT COMPU LINK jacks, you can use either one.

If it has only one TEXT

COMPU LINK jack, connect it so that it is the last item in the series of components. (For example, the CD player in the diagram to the left.)

• Refer also to the manuals supplied with your CD player or MD recorder.

Note:

If you turn on the receiver before turning on the other components after connecting components, the TEXT COMPU LINK remote control system does not work correctly.

If this happens:

1. Turn off the all components including this receiver.

2. Turn on the connected components.

3. Turn on this receiver.
