On power sources
• AC power cord must be changed only at the qualified service
shop.
WARNING: Do not install this equipment in a confined space
such as a book case or similar unit.
On placement
• Place the receiver in a location with adequate ventilation to
prevent heat build-up in the system.
• At high volume, over long periods of time, the cabinet
becomes hot to the touch. This is not a malfunction.
However, touching the cabinet should be avoided. Do not
place the unit in a confined space where ventilation is poor
as this may cause overheating.
• Do not block the ventilation slots by putting anything on the
system. The receiver is equipped with a high power amplifier.
If the ventilation slots on the top surface are blocked, the unit
can overheat and malfunction.
• Do not place the system on a soft surface such as a rug
that might block the ventilation holes on the bottom.
• Do not place the system in a location near heat sources, or
in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust, or
mechanical shock.
To prevent fire, do not cover the ventilation of the apparatus
with news papers, table-cloths, curtains, etc. And don’t place
lighted candles on the apparatus.
Don’t throw away the battery with general
house waste, dispose of it correctly as chemical
waste.
This appliance is classified as a CLASS 1
LASER product. The label is located on the
rear exterior.
CAUTION:
This DVD Receiver employs a Laser System.
To ensure proper use of this product, please read this owner’s
manual carefully and retain it for future reference. Should the
unit require maintenance, contact an authorized service location (see service procedure).
Performing controls, adjustments, or carrying out procedures
other than those specified herein may result in hazardous radiation exposure.
To prevent direct exposure to laser beam, do not try to open
the enclosure. Visible laser radiation when open. DO NOT
STARE INTO BEAM.
CAUTION: The apparatus should not be exposed to water
(dripping or splashing) and no objects filled with liquids, such
as vases, should be placed on the apparatus.
Precautions
Safety
• If anything falls into the cabinet, unplug the unit and have it
checked by qualified personnel before operating it any
further.
• The unit is not disconnected from the AC power source
(mains) as long as it is connected to the mains outlet, even if
the unit itself has been turned off.
• Unplug the unit from the wall outlet if you do not intend to
use it for an extended period of time. To disconnect the cord,
pull it out by the plug, never by the cord.
Installing
• Allow adequate air circulation to prevent internal heat
buildup.
• Do not place the unit on surfaces (rugs, blankets, etc.) or
near materials (curtains, draperies) that may block the ventilation slots.
• Do not install the unit near heat sources such as radiators, or
air ducts, or in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive
dust, mechanical vibration, or shock.
• Do not install the unit in an inclined position. It is designed to
be operated in a horizontal position only.
• Keep the unit and discs away from equipment with strong
magnets, such as microwave ovens, or large loudspeakers.
• Do not place heavy objects on the unit.
• If the unit is brought directly from a cold to a warm location,
moisture may condense inside the DVD Home Theatre
System and cause damage to the lenses. When you first
install the unit, or when you move it from a cold to a warm
location, wait for about 30 minutes before operating the unit.

hour until the moisture evaporates.
• When you move the system, take out any discs. If you don’t,
the disc may be damaged.

INTRODUCTION
Disc-related terms
Before Use (Continued)
Precautions
Handling the unit
When shipping the unit
The original shipping carton and packing materials may
come in handy. For maximum protection, re-pack the
unit as it was originally packed at the factory.
When setting up the unit
The picture and sound of a nearby TV, VCR, or radio
may be disturbed during playback. In this case, position
the unit away from the TV, VCR, or radio, or turn off the
unit after removing the disc.
Storing discs
After playing, store the disc in its case.
Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or sources of
heat, or leave it in a parked car exposed to direct sunlight, as there may be a considerable temperature
increase inside the car.
Cleaning discs
Fingerprints and dust on the disc can distort the picture
or reduce sound quality. Before playing, clean the disc
with a clean cloth. Wipe the disc from the centre outwards.
To keep the exterior surfaces 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 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.
Notes on Discs
Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol, benzine,
thinner, commercially available cleaners, or anti-static
spray intended for vinyl records.
This system can only play back a standard circular disc.
Using neither standard nor circular discs (e.g., card,
heart, or star shape) may cause a malfunction.
Do not use a disc that has a commercially available
accessory attached, such as a label or ring.

Notes
To prevent noise pickup, keep the AM Loop antenna away from the DVD Receiver and other components.
Be sure to fully extend the FM antenna.
After connecting the FM antenna, keep it as horizontal as possible.
Tip
If you have poor FM reception, use a 75Ω coaxial cable (not supplied) to connect the system to an outdoor FM
antenna as shown below.

Notes
Be sure to match the speaker cable to the appropriate terminal on the components: + to + and – to –. If the cables are
reversed, the sound will be distorted and will lack base.
If you use front speakers with low maximum input rating, adjust the volume carefully to avoid excessive output on the speakers.
Do not disassemble the front covers of supplied speakers.
Speaker stand is optional.
14
Connections (Continued)
In the case of normal position use the 6 speakers (2 front speakers, centre speaker, 2 surround speakers and
subwoofer).
If you want to play the excellent bass sound, DTS digital surround or Dolby Digital surround, you should connect a
subwoofer.
• Front speakers
According to your listening position set up the speakers for equal distance. And by hearing position set up the interval between
speakers to 45 degree.
• Centre speaker
The centre speakers and front speakers are ideally the same height. But normally place it above or below the television.
• Surround speakers
Place left and right behind the listening area. These speakers recreate sound motion and atmosphere required for surround
sound playback. For best results, do not install the surround speakers too far behind the listening position and install them at or
above the level of the listener’s ears. It is also effective to direct the surround 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 surround speakers opposite each other, and
set the surround speakers above 60 - 90 cm than the listener’s ears.
• Subwoofer
This can be placed in any front position.

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.
PLII 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.
PLII MUSIC mode:
The Music mode is for use with any stereo music recordings.
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.

Dynamic Range Control (DRC)
With the DVD*1 format, you can hear a program’s
soundtrack in the most accurate and realistic presentation possible, thanks to digital audio technology.
However, you may wish to compress the dynamic range
of the audio output (the difference between the loudest
sounds and the quietest ones). Then, you may listen to
a movie at a lower volume without losing clarity of
sound. Set DRC to On for this effect.

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 Receiver can not read an MP3 file that has
a file extension other than “.mp3”.
MP3 Disc compatibility with this DVD Receiver
is limited as follows:
MP3
2
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, it is impossible to
playback MP3 files.
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 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.
