Introducing the Optimus STAV-3680
Your Optimus STAV-3680 Audio/Video Receiver is the perfect control center for
your audio/video system. It combines 500 watts total Pro Logic Surround Sound
power with five equal-power discrete amplifiers and provides connections for
one tape deck, one VCR, two more tape decks or audio/video playback
sources, a turntable, a CD player, and a video monitor.
Your receiver also has special sound options. Dolby Pro Logic ‘ Surround Sound
delivers movie theater sound for audio/video programs (especially those encoded with Dolby Surround Sound signals). Dolby 3CH Logic provides a wider
sound field than ordinary playback. Studio Effect simulates the ambiance of a
recording studio, adding extra richness to your music. 5-D Theater provides
clear dynamic sound effects by sending audio signals to the rear channel to
simulate stereo sounds.
Additional features include:
Digital-Synthesized Tuner Precisely tunes to AM and FM stations.
Multi-Jog Tuning Offers you a simple tuning method for either memorized stations or the entire
frequency range.
30 Memory Locations Let you store and recall the frequencies for up to 30 AM/FM stations.
Subwoofer Output Lets you easily connect an amplified subwoofer that delivers the very low frequency bass sounds, bringing out the richness and depth of music plus the full
impact of motion-picture special effects for sound you can actually feel.
Tape Monitoring Lets you listen to the actual recording as you record, if your tape deck has a
tape-monitoring feature.
Built-In Protection Circuits Automatically turn off the receiver to help avoid power surges or short circuit
damage.
Remote Control Lets you use a single remote control for the receiver and other compatible components connected to the receiver.
Note: The remote control requires two AA batteries (not supplied).
.
We recommend you record the receiver’s serial number here. The serial number is on
the receiver’s back panel.

Person in Listening Area
Where you place your speakers (not supplied) can make a noticeable difference
in your system’s sound. The guidelines in this section will help you choose the
best locations. After you use your receiver for a while, you might want to try different locations for your speakers.
Bass response depends largely on speaker location. For strong bass, place the
speakers in the corners of the room. If you want even stronger bass, place the
speakers directly on the floor. If the bass is too strong, move the speakers
slightly away from the corners of the room, or raise them 6 to 18 inches off the
floor. You can buy speaker stands at your local RadioShack store.
The distance between the speakers should be about the same as the distance
between the normal listening point and the point halfway between the speakers.
If you place the speakers too close together, you reduce the stereo separation.
If you place them too far apart, you reduce the bass effect and create a “hole” in
the middle of the sound.
• Surround speakers generally sound
best if you position them above ear
level.
Most speakers have a tweeter dispersion angle of about 60 degrees. Ideally,
your listening position should be just inside the overlap area of the tweeter dispersion. You can angle the speakers toward you for better stereo effect.
• To avoid interference with the picture
on a nearby TV, use magnetically
shielded speaker systems. This is particularly important for the center
speaker since it is usually located
closest to the TV.
To position your speakers for surround sound, place the A or B (front) speakers
at the front of your listening area, and place the surround speakers (rear) behind
or to the sides of the listening point (see “Using Advanced Sound Options” on
Page 21). Also, place the center speaker above, below, or behind the TV.
Sound might not appear to coincide with the picture if you place the center
speaker beside the TV.

Preparing Your Receiver
Connecting Speakers
Follow these guidelines when you select
and connect speakers.
• Be sure you properly connect all
speakers.
• Do not connect two pairs of speakers
to a single set of terminals (A or B) at
the same time. When you use two
pairs of speakers, connect one set to
the Speakers A jacks and one set to
the Speakers B jacks.
• Optimus and other high-quality speakers have color-coded speaker terminals (red for positive polarity and
black for negative polarity). Use these
color-coded terminals as a guide to
help you properly connect the speakers to the receiver.
• Use 16-gauge (or larger) speaker wire
for all speaker connections, and consider possible speaker locations before you decide how much speaker
wire you need.
Preparing the Speaker Wires
Speaker wire consists of two conductors (individual wires) encased in insulation
and is usually color-coded or marked with a ridge along one side so you can
identify each conductor. Use these markings as a guide to help you properly
connect the speakers to your receiver.
Follow these steps to prepare the speaker wires.
Wire Strands
Conductor
Wire Strands
Conductor
1. Cut the speaker wires to the necessary length.
2. Separate the wires about 4 inches on each end.
3. Using a wire stripper, carefully strip about 3/4 inch of insulation from the
end of each conductor.
4. Twist the end of each exposed wire to secure any loose strands.
Setting the Impedance Selector Switch
Before connecting speakers, check your speaker system’s impedance (see
your speaker system’s specifications). Normally it is 8W. If it is, leave the IMPEDANCE SELECTOR switch set to 8W~16W/ SPEAKER . If your speaker system has 6W
impedance, set the switch to 6Ω~16Ω/SPEAKER.

Preparing Your Receiver
Connecting Surround-Sound Speakers
You can connect a pair of speakers to the receiver’s REAR SPEAKERS terminals
for surround-sound programs. Follow the steps in “Connecting the A and B
Speakers.”
Connecting the Center Speaker
The center speaker gives additional ambience to surround sound. Connect the
center speaker to the CENTER SPEAKER terminals. Follow the steps in “Connecting the A and B Speakers.”
Connecting Center Channel and Subwoofer Amplifiers
To increase the center channel’s output power, you can connect an amplifier to
the CENTER jack. Then connect the center channel speaker to the amplifier.
Your receiver includes a line-level subwoofer output. Connecting a subwoofer to
your system dramatically extends bass response for incredible richness and
depth. When you listen to surround-sound programs, a subwoofer enhances
your home theater experience by realistically re-creating the rumble of an earthquake, the bone-jarring percussion of a cannon, and more. To use the subwoofer output, simply connect it to an amplified subwoofer’s line-level input or to
an amplifier to which you have connected a subwoofer.
RadioShack stores sell a variety of suitable subwoofers and amplifiers.

• Do not place the antenna near a CD player, a personal computer, or a TV
set.
• If the wire between your AM loop antenna and receiver is too short, you
can add extra wire, available at your local RadioShack store.
You can also use a RadioShack shortwave antenna kit (Cat. No. 278-758),
which makes an excellent outdoor AM antenna. Connect the outdoor AM antenna wire to the receiver’s AM terminal, as shown.

Important: Most material performed in public, such as concerts, plays, and
movies, or distributed on prerecorded video tapes is copyrighted. The unauthorized recording or duplication of copyrighted material is a violation of the copyright laws of most countries and such duplication may result in fines,
imprisonment, or both. Note, however, that in the United States, it is not a violation of U.S. copyright laws for a consumer to record a broadcast television program for private (in-home) viewing.
20
Using Advanced Sound Options
Your receiver has three special sound options: Dolby Pro Logic Surround, SFC
modes (studio and arena), and 5-D Theater. These special options enhance the
sound you hear from a program source.
Notes:
• To get the full benefit from programs encoded with Dolby Surround
Sound, you need a stereo VCR.
• Dolby Surround does not operate correctly if the signal passes through a
graphic equalizer. If you connected an equalizer to the TAPE 2 MONITOR
jacks, do not select TAPE 2 MONITOR when you listen to Dolby Surround
signals.
To activate Dolby Pro Logic Surround, press DOLBY PRO LOGIC. For SFC effects
or 5-D Theater, repeatedly press SFC MODE or 5-D THEATER until the desired option appears on the display. For Dolby 3CH Logic, repeatedly press the remote
control’s C. MODE button until 3CHLOGIC appears on the display.
Dolby Pro Logic Surround
Dolby Pro Logic Surround puts you in the middle of the action. The center- and
rear-channel speakers add incredible realism by directing the sound to the appropriate speakers, making you feel like you are really there. You can find hundreds of movies, television shows, and compact discs produced with Dolby
Surround.
Dolby 3CH Logic
Dolby 3CH Logic produces a more spacious sound field than is possible with ordinary stereo playback by combining the front and rear speaker sounds. Select
this mode when you play a Dolby Surround Sound program and do not have
rear speakers. The rear channel’s sound is sent to the front left and right speakers.
Studio Effect
Studio Effect gives the effect of listening in a recording studio. The front speakers provide normal stereo, and the rear speakers provide a subtly reverberated
sound. Select this mode when you listen to sources not encoded with Dolby
Surround.
Arena Effect
Arena Effect is ideal for sources such as live performances. The front speakers
output the music, and the rear speakers output the sounds and applause of the
audience.
5-D Theater
5-D Theater provides clearer and more dynamic sound effects by outputting audio signals through the rear channel to simulate the stereo sound, compared
with a standard surround system which provides only monaural signals to the
rear speakers. Select 5-D PRO LOGIC for the sources encoded with Dolby
Pro Logic, and select 5-D Surround for normal stereo sources.
21
Using Advanced Sound Options
Sound Mode Adjustments

WIDE — Select this mode if you use a medium or large center speaker. The
center speaker plays the center-channel bass sounds.
PHANTOM — Select this mode if you have no center speaker. All center-channel sound comes from the front left and right speakers.
3CHLOGIC — Select this mode if you do not have rear speakers. The rear
channel’s sound is sent to the front left and right speakers.
Test Tone
The test tone feature provides a test tone that lets you balance the signal levels
between all your speakers. See “Center Level” and “Rear Level.”
To activate the test tone, select one of the surround sound modes (except
PHANTOM) and set AUDIO/SURROUND on the remote to AUDIO. Then press TEST
TONE. The receiver sounds a 2-second tone from the front left, center, front right,
and rear speakers, in sequence.
Notes:
• The center test tone does not sound if you select PHANTOM surround
sound mode.
• In the Dolby 3CH Logic Sound mode, the receiver sounds a 2-second
tone from the left, center, and right speakers, in sequence.
Press TEST TONE again to turn off this feature.

Care and Maintenance
Your STAV-3680 Audio/Video Receiver is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help
you care for the receiver so you can enjoy it for years.
Keep the receiver dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids can contain
minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.
Handle the receiver gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage its circuit
boards and can cause the receiver to work improperly.
Use and store the receiver only in normal temperature environments. Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage batteries, and
distort or melt plastic parts.
Keep the receiver away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of
parts.
Wipe the receiver with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new. Do not
use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the receiver.
Use only fresh batteries of the recommended size and type in the remote control. Always remove old or weak batteries. They can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic circuits.
Modifying or tampering with your receiver’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate the receiver’s
warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If the receiver is not operating as it should, take it to your local
RadioShack store for assistance.

The FCC Wants You to Know
Your receiver might cause radio or TV interference even when it is operating
properly. To determine whether your receiver is causing the interference, turn off
your receiver. If the interference goes away, your receiver is causing it. Try to
eliminate the interference by:
• Moving your radio or TV away from the receiver
• Connecting your receiver to an outlet that is on a different electrical circuit
from the radio or TV
• Contacting your local RadioShack store for help
If you cannot eliminate the interference, the FCC requires that you stop using
your receiver.

This product is warranted by RadioShack against manufacturing defects in material and workmanship under normal use for two (2) years from the date of purchase from RadioShack companyowned stores and authorized RadioShack franchisees and dealers. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED
HEREIN, RadioShack MAKES NO EXPRESS WARRANTIES AND ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES,
INCLUDING THOSE OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE,
ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE DURATION OF THE WRITTEN LIMITED WARRANTIES

price. All replaced parts and products, and products on which a refund is made, become the property of RadioShack. New or reconditioned parts and products may be used in the performance of
warranty service. Repaired or replaced parts and products are warranted for the remainder of the
original warranty period. You will be charged for repair or replacement of the product made after the
expiration of the warranty period.
This warranty does not cover: (a) damage or failure caused by or attributable to acts of God, abuse,
accident, misuse, improper or abnormal usage, failure to follow instructions, improper installation or
maintenance, alteration, lightning or other incidence of excess voltage or current; (b) any repairs
other than those provided by a RadioShack Authorized Service Facility; (c) consumables such as
fuses or batteries; (d) cosmetic damage; (e) transportation, shipping or insurance costs; or (f) costs
