Things to consider before you connect
• Ensure that the mains supply in your house complies with that indicated on the identification
sticker located on the back of your unit.
• Install your unit horizontally, away from any source of heat (fireplace) or appliances creating
strong magnetic or electromagnetic fields. The components of this unit are sensitive to heat. The
maximum ambient temperature should not exceed 35° Celsius/95 Fahrenheit.
• Leave enough space around the unit to allow adequate ventilation: 10 cm/4 inches on either side
and above the top, and 5 cm/2 inches at the rear.
• The humidity of the room should not exceed 75%. If you have to use the unit outdoors, do not
expose it to rain or splashing water. The apparatus should not be exposed to dripping or
splashing and no objects filled with liquids, such as vases, should be placed on the apparatus.
• Moving the unit from a cold place to a warm one can cause condensation on some components
inside the unit. Let the condensation disappear on its own before turning the unit on again.
• Before moving the player, make sure the disc tray is empty.

DVD copy protection
In accordance with the DVD standard, your DVD player is equipped with a Copy Protection system, which can be switched on and off by the DVD disc itself, in order to make any recording of the relevant DVD disc onto a videotape of very
poor picture quality, or even impossible. This product incorporates copyright protection technology that is protected
by method claims of certain U.S. patents and other intellectual property rights owned by Macrovision Corporation and
other rights owners. Use of this copyright protection technology must be authorized by Macrovision Corporation, and is

Connecting to audiovisual equipment
Explanation of jacks and cables
The jacks on the back of your receiver (pictured left) and
the cables shown below are used to connect to other
components.
The video jacks are OUT jacks, which need to be
connected to IN jacks on the TV or monitor you’re
connecting to (so the video content goes from the
receiver to the screen). The audio jacks are IN jacks,
which need to be connected to OUT jacks
on the component you’re connecting to, so the sound
from the component comes into the receiver (and out
through the speakers).
Video cables
Composite video cable (included)
The basic Video jack (usually color-coded yellow) is also referred to as composite
video. Usually the video cable is bundled with the audio cables (white and red).
Composite video cable
Component video cables (Pr, Pb, Y) (not included)
The Y, Pb, Pr jacks provide optimum picture quality by separating the video
signal into three parts. To ensure maximum picture quality, use three videograde
cables for the connection. You can also buy bundled component video
cables that are color-coded to match the Y, Pb, Pr inputs (green, blue and red).
Note: If your television is a high definition television, use the DVD player’s progressive scan
output to get the highest possible video resolution. Set the Progressive Scan option in the
Display menu to On (see page 26).
Note: If one of the devices is not working, check that all the cables have been inserted
properly into the jacks.
Component video cable
Audio cables (not included)
AUDIO IN L (left) and AUDIO IN R (right)
These jacks and cables are often color-coded (red for right audio, and white for
left audio).
Note: If your component has only one input for audio (mono), connect it to the left (white
L/Mono) audio jack on the TV and don’t connect the right audio part of the cable.
Audio cables (red and white)

Connecting the speakers
Six speakers are provided with the unit (2 front, 1 center,
2 rear, 1 subwoofer). To achieve good surround effects,
all six speakers need to be connected to the receiver.
One speaker wire is provided with each speaker.
Speaker wires are color-coded to match the terminals.
Connect the speaker wire from the back of each
speaker to the corresponding color terminal at the back
of the unit. Press down the tab to open the terminal and
insert the wire. Release the tab to lock wire in the
terminal. Do the same for center speaker, rear
speakers and the subwoofer.
Note: When connecting the speakers, make sure
the polarities (“+” speaker wire to “+” on the receiver)
of speaker wires and terminals match. If the cords are
reversed, the sound will be distorted. Do not ground the
output line, it will damage the speaker.
Positioning speakers
" Left, Right (Front Speakers)
Front speakers carry primarily music and sound
effects.
! Center
In surround mode, the center speaker carries
most of the dialog as well as music and effects.
It should be set between the left and right
speakers.
# Surround (Rear Speakers)
The rear speakers’ overall sound balance should
be as close as possible to the front speakers.
Proper placement is vital to establish an evenly
distributed sound field.
Courtesy Dolby Laboratories
10
Subwoofer
A subwoofer is designed to reproduce powerful
low bass effects (explosions, the rumble of
spaceships, etc.) which dramatically heighten
the action on the screen.
Magnetic shielding
Speakers placed less than two feet from the TV set must be magnetically shielded in order to prevent picture distortion.
Front and center speakers provided with this unit are magnetically shielded to protect your TV set.
Note: It is not recommended to place the rear speakers and subwoofer near the TV set.
Front speaker placement
Follow the suggestions for speaker placement below to
get the best results.
Alignment
Align the center speaker evenly with (A) or slightly
behind (B) (the left and right speakers), but not ahead
of them.
Courtesy Dolby Laboratories
Angle
Place the left and right speakers to form a 45-degree
angle with your favorite viewing position to duplicate
the soundtrack mixer’s perspective.
Height
The mid- and high-frequency drivers of the three front
speakers should be as close as possible to the same
height. This often requires placing the center speaker
directly on top (A) or beneath (B) the TV set.
Courtesy Dolby Laboratories
Preferred surround placement
Location
If possible, place surround speakers to either side of the
listening area, not behind it.
Height
If space permits, install surround speakers 2-3 feet above
viewers. This helps to minimize localization effects.
Aiming
Aim surround speakers straight across the room, not
down at viewers, to help create a more open, spacious
surround sound field.
Alternative Surround Placement
Courtesy Dolby Laboratories
Rear wall
If rear wall mounting is the only choice, aim the
speakers at each other (A), towards the front (B) or
towards the sidewalls (C, D). Experiment with placement
until sounds seem to surround you, rather than come
from behind you.
Courtesy Dolby Laboratories
11
No adjacent walls
Surround speakers can go on stands facing each
other to approximate sidewall mounting (A), or
to the sides or rear of the viewing area, aimed
upwards; they can go right on the floor, or
preferably, a few feet off the floor such as on
end tables (B).
Courtesy Dolby Laboratories
12
Test tone/Channel balance
Channel balance
Your receiver is equipped with a test signal
generator for balancing the channels. As the
signal “travels” from channel to channel, adjust
the level controls until each channel plays at
the same loudness level.
Level adjustment and surround channel
level expectation
Even though you adjust the surround channel
to be as loud as the others on the test signal,
on actual program material the surround
channel is usually much lower than the front.
Don’t re-adjust the surround level; program
producers use surround for subtle atmospherics
and ambience, and only rarely for special
effects.

• Do not play cracked, chipped or warped discs nor try to repair them with adhesive tape or glue.
• Do not write on a disc.
• Do not move the player when a disc is being played.
• Do not scratch discs or store them in places exposed to direct sunlight, high humidity or high temperatures.
• Do not use aerosol cleaners, benzene, anti-static liquids or any other solvent for cleaning discs.
When cleaning, wipe gently with a soft damp (water only) cloth from the centre to the edge, avoiding circular
motions, which could cause scratches and interference during playback.

Disc Formats you can play
In order to ensure playback, discs must conform with DVD, CD, VCD or SVCD standards. This unit may not play some
recordings or files due to differences in recording formats, software used & Disc types.
DVD-Video
Digital video discs - 12 cm, single or double sided, single
or dual layer. DVDs are highdensity optical discs on
which high quality picture and audio are recorded by
means of digital signals.
DVD-R,DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW
Most DVD-R and DVD+R (one recording only), DVD-RW
and DVD+RW discs (rewritable), depending on the DVD
writer and discs used. Recordings using DVD-R and
DVD-RW discs must be made in Video DVD mode.
Recordings using DVD+RW discs must be made in
accordance with the specifications for DVD+RW discs
with a 4.7 GB capacity.
VCD - Video Compact Disc
CD on which you can record up to 74 min. of VHS quality
video associated with still images, audio tracks and
interactive menus.
SVCD - Super Video Compact Disc
Most SVCDs comply with the IEC62107 standard. SVCDs
can be used to record up to 70 minutes of digital sound
and images in accordance with MPEG-2 standards for
video and MPEG-1 standards for audio.
Audio CDs
Audio CDs (12 cm).
CD-R, CD-RW
Most CD-R (one recording only) and CDRW
discs (rewritable).
CD-Rs written during a multisession recording can be
played, provided that the session has ended before the
disc is played (depending on the write
software). However, depending on the condition of the
CD-writer, computer and the disc used, you may find that
not all discs will play. When playing a CD-R disc, it is
normal for the unit to take up to 20 seconds to recognize
the disc before starting to play.
If the disc is not recognized after a period of 20 seconds,
remove the disc, and insert it again.
• Do not use its full capacity.

• CD-Rs should be preferably used instead of CD-RWs
(rewritable CDs) as, in certain cases, CD-RW playback
may be faulty.
• Use reliable, good-quality CD write software.
• Close all other applications on the computer to ensure
reliable CD-R disc recording.
mp3 files
CD-R and CD-RW discs containing audio files in mp3
format. For CD-R mp3 discs, please follow all the
recommendations for CD-R, along with the comments
below:
• Your mp3 files should be ISO 9660 or JOLIET format.
ISO 9660 format and Joliet mp3 files are compatible
with Microsoft’s DOS and Windows, as well as with
Apple Mac.
• mp3 filenames should not exceed 8 characters, and
should end with the “.mp3” extension. General name
format: Title.mp3. When composing your title, use
10 characters or less, no spaces, and avoid the use of
special characters including (. , / , \ , = ,+).
• The total number of files on a disc should be less
than 400.
• Use a decompression transfer rate of at least
128 kB/sec (kilobytes/second) when recording mp3
files. Sound quality with mp3 files basically depends on
the rate of compression/ decompression you choose.
Obtaining audio CD quality sound requires an analog/
digital sampling rate, that is conversion to mp3 format,
of at least 128 kB/sec and up to 160 kB/sec. Choosing
higher rates, such as 192 kB/sec or more, only rarely
produces even better sound quality. Conversely, files
with sampling rates below 128 kB/sec will not play
properly.
• Do not record copyright-protected mp3 files.
“Securized” files are encrypted and codeprotected to
prevent illegal copying.
Important: The above recommendations does not
guarantee that the DVD player will play mp3 recordings,
or as an assurance of sound quality. Certain technologies
and methods for mp3 file recording on CD-Rs prevent
optimal playback of these files on your DVD player (i.e.
degraded sound quality and in some cases, inability of
the player to read the file).
JPEG files
CD-R and CD-RW with JPEG files. Certain JPEG files, including progressive JPEG files, cannot be read by this player.
The total number of files and folders on the disc should be less than 650. Make sure that files have the “.jpg” extension.
Files without the “.jpg” extension will not be able to be read by the player - even though the files are shown as JPEG
images on your computer.
WMA files
CD-R and CD-RW discs containing audio files in WMA (Windows Media Audio) format.
Please follow all the recommendations for CD-R above.
Sound Enhancement Systems
This receiver is equipped with several built-in sound enhancement systems.
Dolby Digital
The Dolby Digital mode lets you enjoy full digital surround from software processed in the Dolby Digital format. Dolby
Digital provides better sound quality and a more powerful presence than conventional Dolby Surround. This unit is
equipped with Dolby Digital 5.1-channel so that you can enjoy enhanced full digital surround sound. Different from Dolby
Pro Logic in that only four channels (Front Left, Front Right, Centre and Rear ) are used, the new system provides stereo
separation of the rear speakers (Rear-Right, Rear-Left ). Adding the to the 5 channels the subwoofer channel for bass
sounds (counted as 0.1 channel) results in 5.1 channels (or 6 Channels) that bring you the most sophisticated Dolby
Digital sound enjoyment.
