VENTILATION
÷
When installing this unit, make sure to leave space
around the unit for ventilation to improve heat
radiation (at least 60 cm at top, 10 cm at rear, and 30
cm at each side). If not enough space is provided
between the unit and walls or other equipment, heat
will build up inside, interfering with performance or
causing malfunctions.
Do not place on a thick carpet, bed, sofa or fabric
having a thick pile. Do not cover with fabric or other
covering.
Anything that blocks ventilation will cause internal
temperature to rise, which may lead to breakdown or
fire hazard.
÷

coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug,
proceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the
terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured black.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to
the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured
red.
Do not connect either wire to the earth terminal of a
three pin plug.
NOTE
After replacing or changing a fuse, the fuse cover in the
plug must be replaced with a fuse cover which corresponds to the colour of the insert in the base of the plug
or the word that is embossed on the base of the plug,
and the appliance must not be used without a fuse cover.

memo
• Install the left and right front speakers at equal distances from the TV.
• When installing speakers near the TV, we recommend using magnetically shielded speakers to prevent
possible interference such as distortion in the color of the TV screen. If you do not have magnetically
shielded speakers and notice discoloration of the TV screen, place the speakers farther away from the TV.
• Install the center speaker above, below the TV so that the sound of the center channel is localized at the TV
screen.
CAUTION:
When installing the center speaker on top of the TV, be sure to secure it with tape or some other suitable
means.
Otherwise, the speaker may fall from the TV due to external shocks such as earthquakes, and it may lead to
endangering those nearby or damaging the speaker.
• If possible, install the surround speakers slightly above ear level.
• It may be difficult to obtain a cohesive surround effect if the surround speakers are installed farther away
from the listening position than the front and center speakers.

Dynamic range is the difference between the loudest and softest sounds in any given signal. The dynamic range control
helps you play back sounds so the quieter sounds are audible yet the louder sounds don’t get distored. It does this by

environments when playing standard (two-channel) stereo sources, Dolby Surround sources, and Dolby Digital sources.
HALL 1
Simulates the acoustic environment of a large concert hall of wooden construction. Complex delay of reflected
sounds coupled with reverberation effects create a dynamic and beautiful sound characteristic of an orchestra
performing in a concert hall, making it suitable for classical music
HALL 2
Simulates the acoustic environment of a concert hall with stone walls. The rich reverberations and natural fullness
of the sound create the auditory impression of being in a concert hall, making it suitable for classical music.
JAZZ
Simulates the acoustic environment of a jazz club. Less delay on the reflected sounds emphasizes the sensation of
hearing a live band.
DANCE
Simulates the acoustic environment and strong bass sound of a nightclub with a square dance floor. A short delay
on the reflected sounds emulates the raw power of the dance music.

When playing LD recorded in Dolby Digital
When connecting a DVD/LD player or LD player using the AC-3 RF output, a commercially available RF demodulator
(RFD-1) is required. The RF demodulator changes the RF signal to a digital signal which is then processed by the
amplifier at the digital input jacks. For more details, refer to the instruction manual supplied with the RFD-1.
Refer to pages 42 for explanations of Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic.

Additional Information
Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is a compression format which records the
sound of 6 channels of the theater surround system
(Dolby Digital) on the movie film digital track. Of the 6
channels, the sub woofer channel is intended for bass
only, and because the frequency range is smaller than
the main channel, it is expressed as 5.1 channel.
Dolby Digital is the name of the Dolby surround multichannel digital system that was developed after the
Dolby Surround System and Dolby Pro Logic Surround
System.
4 channel analog
sound track (Matrix)
5.1 channel digital
surround track
In reproducing audio signals, the smaller the bit number
used, the lower the sound quality. With AC-3, drop in
auditory sound quality is prevented by using masking
technology and digital filtering technology based on the
human auditory characteristics.
Laser disc format
Laser discs are now available on the market in large
numbers. This means that the recording of different
format audio signals on the laser disc raises the
important question of compatibility with existing laser
discs. Dolby Digital tracks on Laser Discs record signals
using the space of one analog audio channel so it will
maintain compatibility with existing discs and players.
As shown in the following figure, the digital audio
sounds of Dolby Digital discs can be played back as
currently done. Analog sounds are played back by using
the other channel without the Dolby Digital signals for
monaural audio signals.

Dolby Digital for motion picture
The number of movies made using Dolby Digital since
1992 has exceeded 300 and continues to increase. For
compact disc players and laser disc digital sounds, 16
bits are used to sample the original analog audio
waveform and sampling is carried out 44,100 times every
second. However because an enormous amount of
recording signal data is required for the multi channel
system with this method, AC-3 is used to compress the
data.
Comparison with Dolby Pro Logic Surround
Dolby Digital is also known as the 5.1 channel system. It
is equipped with 5 channels (front left, front right, center,
surround left, surround right) in the frequency range
from 20 Hz to 20 kHz and an independent Low Frequency
Effect (LEF) channel. The sub woofer channel is also
called Low Frequency Effect (LFE).
The subwoofer channel can be used as desired to enjoy
strong bass sounds.
The following table shows the comparison with Dolby
Pro Logic Surround effects.
