Connect the lead-type FM antenna to the “FM 75Ω” socket,
extend the lead and tune the tuner to your favorite FM station
(see page 24). Adjust the antenna in a suitable location like a
window frame or wall until the reception is best and then affix
the antenna in that position using thumb tacks, push pins or any
other suitable means.
4
FM Outdoor Antenna
In an area where FM signals are weak, it will be necessary to
use an 75-ohm unbalanced-type outdoor FM antenna.
Generally, a 3-element antenna will be sufficient; if you live in
an area where the FM signals are particularly weak, it may be
necessary to use one with 5 or more elements.
< Disconnect the FM indoor antenna when using an outdoor
antenna.
Connection (AM antenna)
AM Indoor Loop Antenna
The high-performance AM loop antenna provided with this
unit is sufficient for good reception in most areas.
To stand the loop antenna on a surface, fix the claw to the
slot in the antenna base.
AM Outdoor Antenna
If the AM loop antenna provided does not deliver sufficient
reception (often due to being too far from the transmitter or
in a concrete building, etc.), it may be necessary to use an
outdoor AM antenna.
Use either a high quality commercial AM antenna or, if not
available, an insulated wire more than 5 m long, strip one
end, and connect this to the terminal as shown.
The antenna wire should be strung outdoors or indoors near
a window. For better reception, connect the GND terminal to
a reliable ground.
Note:
Even when using an outdoor AM antenna, do not disconnect
the AM loop antenna.
How to connect:
Connect the loop antenna’s wires to the AM antenna
terminals.
Make sure to connect:
white wire q lower terminal
black wire q upper terminal (GND)
Place the antenna on a shelf or hang it on a window frame,
etc., in the direction which gives the best reception. Keep all
other wires such as power cords, speaker wires or
interconnect wires as far away as possible from the antenna.

Caution:
To avoid damaging the speakers with a sudden high-level
signal, be sure to switch the power off before connecting the
speakers.
Check the impedance of your speakers. Connect speaker with
an impedance of 6 ohms or more.
The black speaker terminals are – (negative).
Generally, the + side of the speaker cable is marked to make
it distinguishable from the – side of the cable. Connect this
marked side to the + terminal and the unmarked side to the
black – terminal.
Caution:
The metal portions of the two separate wires should not
touch or an electrical short can occur. Shorted wires can
create a fire hazard or induce a failure in your equipment.
How to connect:
1. Turn the terminal cap counterclockwise to loosen it. The
speaker terminal caps cannot be fully removed from the base.
2. Insert the wire into the terminal fully and turn the terminal
cap clockwise to securely connect it:
Prepare the speaker cables for connection by stripping off
approximately 10 mm or less of the outer insulation.
(Removing too much insulation may lead to a short circuit if
the bared wires should come in contact with each other.)
Twist the strands of the stripped wires tightly together:
Make sure none of the wire insulation is under the terminal,
only the bare, stripped wire.
3. Make sure it is fastened firmly by pulling the cable lightly.

which layout provides the best surround effect.
All memories are erased, and the unit returns to the factory
settings.
< Ideally, position all the speakers in a circle, with the same
distance from your listening position.
< Place the speakers connected to “L” to your left, and “R” to
your right.
Front speakers
Use magnetically shielded speakers, if you are using them
near your TV.
Place the front speakers in front of the listening position, to
the left and right of a TV.
Front speakers are required for all surround modes.
Center speaker
Use a magnetically shielded speaker if you are using it near
your TV. Place a center speaker between the front speakers,
on or below the TV. This speaker stabilizes the sound image.
Rear (Surround) Left and Right speakers
Install these speakers above the level of the listener’s ears,
directly to the left and right (or slightly behind) of your
listening position.
Subwoofer
Reproduces powerful and deep bass sounds.
Use a subwoofer with built-in amplifier referred to as a
“powered subwoofer”. Subwoofers are most effective when
placed on or near the floor and in a corner of the room. Refer
to the instructions that came with your subwoofer for
placement suggestions.

DTS (DTS Digital Surround)
During playback of a DVD disc recorded in DTS format, the
surround mode is set to DTS automatically.
DTS Digital Surround delivers up to 5.1 channels with lower
audio compression than Dolby Digital. It provides the clarity
and dynamics of the original master soundtrack.
Dolby Digital
During playback of a DVD disc recorded in DOLBY DIGITAL
format, the surround mode is set to DOLBY DIGITAL
automatically.
Dolby Digital delivers up to 5 totally discrete, full-frequency
audio channels (front left and right, center, and surround left
and right), plus 0.1 channel called LFE (Low-Frequency
Effects). LFE delivers a separate non-directional bass signal to
the sub-woofer for more dynamic deep bass sound effects.
Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II is an advanced matrix decoder that gives
you 5.1-channel surround sound (front left, center, front
right, surround left and surround right) from any stereo
program material, as well as Dolby Surround encoded
material.
Compared with Pro Logic’s monaural, limited-bandwidth
surround channel, Pro Logic II can provide two full-range
surround channels.
Dolby Pro Logic
Dolby Pro Logic is a matrix decoder that decodes the four
channels of surround sound (front left, center, front right and
surround) that have been encoded onto the stereo
soundtracks of Dolby Surround encoded material such as VHS
movies. The surround channel is monaural, but is played
through two surround speakers.
MATRIX
This mode emphasizes the sense of expansion for music
source.
CHURCH
This mode provides reverberations as if you are in a stonebuilt church.
THEATER
This mode provides a three dimensional surround effect
similar to that of a movie theater.
HALL
This mode is suitable for orchestral music such as classical
music or opera.
< DOLBY PRO LOGIC II will not work on monaural source.
DOLBY PRO LOGIC II MOVIE:
This mode is optimized for movies or Dolby Surround
encoded materials. This mode is also appropriate for use with
video games.
STADIUM
This mode provides the expansive sound field to achieve the
true stadium effect when watching baseball or soccer games.
DOLBY PRO LOGIC II MUSIC:
The Music mode creates a rich and enveloping surround
ambience from stereo sources such as music CDs.

Subwoofer Setting
“SW+” mode is valid only when “FRONT” and “CENTER” are
set to “L” and “SUB-W” to “Y” on the SPK SET menu. For
details, refer to “Speaker Setup” on page 31.
NORM (default):
The low frequency signals of channels set to “L” are
reproduced from those channels only.
In this mode, the low frequency signals that are produced
from the subwoofer channel are only the LFE signals (from
the multi-channel sources that contain LFE (Low Frequency
Effects) channel, also called the “0.1” channel) and the low
frequency signals of the channels set to “S”.
SW+:
The low frequency signals of channels set to “L” are
produced simultaneously from those channels and the
subwoofer channel.
In this mode, the low frequency range expands more
uniformly through the room, but depending on the size and
shape of the room, interference may result in a decrease of
the actual volume of the low frequency range.

set to “L (Large)”.
< When the “FRONT” is set to “S (Small)”, “CENTER” and
“SURR” cannot be set to “L (Large)”.
About speaker size
< Select “L (Large)” or “S (Small)” not according to the actual
size of the speaker but according to the speaker’s capacity for
playing low frequency (bass sound below frequency set on
the “X-OVER” menu) signals.
< If you do not know, try comparing the sound at both settings
(setting the volume to a level low enough so as not to
damage the speakers) to determine the proper setting.
When setting the distance:
< You can set the distance within the range of 0.0 to 9.0
meters in 0.3 meter intervals (or 1 to 30 feet in 1 feet
