Placement

Stack the units as shown in the illustration.

The illustration shows where to place the speakers so as to t

enjoy sound with the DSP modes.

Front speakers

Place on the left and right of the TV at seated ear height so th, there is good coherency between the picture and sound.

Center speaker

Place underneath or above the center of the TV. Aim the speaker a

the seating area.

Surround speakers

Place on the side of or slightly behind the listener, about one meter

higher than ear level.

The sound reproduced by a speaker is easily influenced by such factors

as room acoustics and the system's location in the room.

Before finally deciding where the speakers are to be placed, please

read the following information carefully.

• The bass sound will be increased if the speakers are placed on

the floor or close to a wall due to reverberation.

It is therefore possible to adjust the bass sound to some extent

by adjusting the speaker's distance from the wall and/or floor.

• Undesirable resonance or reverberation will occur if the speakers

face a hard wall or window. Curtains or similar materials can be

used to prevent this.

• Keep the speakers away from sources of heat, high humidity and direct sunlight.

Keep your speakers at least 10 mm (13/32") away from the

system for proper ventilation.

The surround speakers do not have magnetic shielding. Do not

place televisions, personal computers or other devices easily

influenced by magnetism.

If irregular coloring occurs on your television []

The front and center speakers are designed to be used close to a television, but the picture

may be affected

with some televisions and set-up combinations.

If this occurs, turn the television off for about 30 minutes,

The television's demagnetizing function should correct the

problem. If it persists, move the speakers further away from the television.

Cautions on moving the CD changer

Before moving the changer to another location, be sure to

remove all discs from the slots and turn off the changer.

Failure to do so will expose the compact

discs and the changer to the risk of severe damage.

CAUTION

The changer

mechanism

automatically locks when power is turned off, to protect it against damage in transport

Therefore, always press [POWER]

and make sure "OFF"

appears on the display before you unplug the changer.

Other cautions

Outside

light or noise may sometimes cause the changer

to

detect a disc when there isn't one. However, the changer always

correctly detects the disc when in the play mode no matter what.

Do not leave the front panel open. Dust or other matter getting

into the changer may lead to damage or malfunctions.

program. If a disc is removed or the new disc doesn't have the

programmed track number, those entries are canceled as the program is played.

For your reference

The program is stored even if the unit is turned off or disconnected

from its power supply. Extended disconnection will eventually result

in erasure of the program.

Special note on recording programs

The changer needs time to change discs and find tracks.

It will take the changer slightly longer than the total track time to record everything. How much longer depends on the program.

[ SFC mode

The SFC (Sound Field Control) function gives presence and spread thereby enhancing and enriching the music or movies.

Read the following explanations better understand how to make your selection.

]

SFC is designed to add surround-like effects to stereo sources.

Select the appropriate mode when playing back Dolby Digital, DTS,

or Dolby Surround sources.

HALL

This mode imparts a reflection and spread which will make you feel

as if you are in a large concert hail

CLUB

Like jazz club, this mode provides an exciting and intimate atmosphere.

It simulates the sound field of a relatively small room

having a low ceiling and hard reflective surfaces, for a "live" sound

with enhanced presence to bring the performers up close.

LIVE

Primarily for vocal pieces, this mode adds gloss to the vocals and

you'll feel as though you were hearing a live stage performance.

THEATER

You can clearly perceive the directions and source of the movie.

Real ambience of sound can also be recreated naturally using this

mode.

elM SURR (SIMULATED)

Choose this mode if little or no sound will be heard from the

surround speakers.

You can feel as if you were in a more expanded space adding to

the actual sound from the source.

This mode also adds effect to monaural sources

by outputting

sound from surround speakers.

Selecting fine

audio equipment such

as the unit you've

just

purchased is only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now it's time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement your equipment offers.

This manufacturer and the Electronic Industdas

Association's Consumer Electronics Group want you to get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that lets the

sound come through loud and clear without annoying blaring or distortion-and, most importantly, without

affecting

your sensitive hearing.

We recommend you to avoid

prolonged

exposure to excessive noise.

Sound can be deceiving.

Over time your hearing "comfort

lever'

adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds "normal" can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing.

Guard against this by setting your equipment

BEFORE your hearing adapts.

To establish a safe level: at a safe level

Start your volume control at a low setting.

• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without distortion.

Once you have established a comfortable sound level:

• Set the dial and Jeava it there.

Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or loss in the future.

After all, we want you listening for a lifetime.
