GETTING THE MOST FROM THE L 54
ENGLISH
UNPACKING AND SETUP
WHAT’S IN THE BOX
Packed with your L 54 you will find:
• An AM loop antenna
• An FM ribbon-wire antenna with balun
• The HTR 4 remote control with 4 (four) AAA batteries
• This owner’s manual
FRANÇAIS
SAVE THE PACKAGING
Please save the box and all of the packaging in which your L 54 arrived. Should you move or otherwise
need to transport your receiver, this is by far the safest container in which to do so. We’ve seen too
many otherwise perfect components damaged in transit for lack of a proper shipping carton, so
please: Save that box!
DEUTSCH
CHOOSING A LOCATION
Choose a location that is well ventilated (with at least several inches to both sides and behind), and that
will provide a clear line of sight, within 25 feet/8 meters, between the L 54’s front panel and your primary
listening/viewing position. This will ensure reliable infrared remote control communications. The L 54
generates a modest amount of heat, but nothing that should trouble adjacent components. It is perfectly
possible to stack the L 54 atop other components, but the reverse usually should be avoided.
NEDERLANDS
Nonetheless, it is generally preferable that the L 54 stands alone. It is especially important that
sufficient ventilation be provided. If you are contemplating locating the L 54 within a cabinet or other
furniture, consult your NAD audio/video specialist for advice on providing adequate airflow.
QUICK START
In case you simply cannot wait to experience the performance of your new NAD L 54 DVD Receiver,
we provide the following “Quick Start” instructions to get you underway. Before the steps below,
connect your L 54 to a TV/monitor.
Please make all the connections to your L 54 with the unit unplugged. It is also advisable to powerdown or unplug all associated components while making or breaking any signal or AC power
connections.

GETTING THE MOST FROM THE L 54
ABOUT THE L 54
FRANÇAIS
Though the L 54 is among the most technically sophisticated integrated Stereo DVD receivers, we
worked hard to make it one of the most musically transparent home-theatre components available as
well - this is what we mean by NAD’s “Music First” design philosophy. Here are just a few examples:
• High-performance components used throughout the receiver’s analog audio circuits maximize
quality from all sources.
• The L 54 incorporates a high quality DVD player with exceptional playability. The player has
support for DVD video, VCD, SVCD with playback control (PBC), DivX, CD audio such as CD-RW
as well as recorded MP3, copyright-protected WMA and JPEG files.
• Gold-surfaced connectors are employed throughout to ensure maximum signal integrity.
EASE OF USE
DEUTSCH
Despite the effort NAD has invested in the L 54’s sonic performance, we expended no less in making
it powerfully easy to use. Its design is uniquely simple for so sophisticated a component, and the HTR
4 universal remote control is equally understandable, as are the L 54’s own front panel and on-screen
displays (OSD).
ABOUT THE HTR 4 SYSTEM REMOTE CONTROL
Packed with your L 54 is the NAD HTR 4 remote control, a full-system remote especially designed
for easy use and understanding. Be sure to read the section “Using the HTR 4 Remote Control” to
familiarize yourself with the remote’s layout and operations before proceeding to setup your L 54.

Chances are you will want to use your HTR 4 as your primary way to command your entire A/V system.
The HTR 4 can be employed to operate additional NAD or other-brand components such as a second
DVD/CD player, television, satellite/HDTV tuner, VCR, or virtually anything else that operates via
standard infrared remote control.

ATTENTION!
Please make all the connections to your L 54 with the unit unplugged. It is also advisable to power down or unplug all associated components while making
or breaking any signal or AC power connections.
ESPAÑOL
1 SPEAKERS : Connect the left and right terminals to the corresponding
loudspeakers. Each output’s “+” (red) terminal and “-” (black) terminal
must be connected to the corresponding “+” and “-” terminals of the
loudspeaker. Use extra care to ensure that no stray wires or strands cross
between posts or terminals at either end.
ITALIANO
NOTES
• Use stranded wire of at least 16-gauge (AWG); specialized speaker cable
may be valuable (consult your NAD audio specialist). Connections to the
L 54 can be made with banana-type plugs, or using bare wire, or pins, by
loosening the terminal’s plastic nut, making a clean, neat connection, and
re-tightening carefully (use the transverse hole through the post for barewire or pin connections). To minimize the danger of short-circuits, ensure
that only 1/2-inch of exposed wire or pin is employed in connecting.
• This unit is designed to produce optimum sound quality when
connected to speakers with impedances within the receiver’s operating
range. Please check that speakers are rated to be 8 ohms minimum per
speaker.
РУССКИЙ
2FM ANTENNA : The supplied wire “dipole” FM antenna will connect to
the FM connector using the supplied “balun” adaptor. It will usually work
best when mounted on a vertical surface such as a wall, with arms fully
outstretched forming a horizontal “T” perpendicular to the origin point
of the signal. Experiment with placement and orientation to yield the
clearest sound and lowest background noise.
SVENSKA
In areas of difficult FM reception, an external FM antenna can yield
dramatic gains in quality; consult your NAD audio specialist or a
professional antenna installer.
10
3AM ANTENNA : The AM loop antenna supplied with the L 54 (or
a suitable replacement) is required for AM reception. Open the clip
terminal lever; insert the wire making sure to match the color-coded
(white and black) ends of the wire to that of the terminal and close the
lever ensuring that the lever locks the wire in place. Testing different
positions for the antenna may improve reception; vertical orientation
will usually produce the best results. Antenna proximity to large metal
objects (appliances, radiators) may impair reception, as will attempts to
lengthen the wire to the loop.
Note
An external AM antenna can improve long distance reception
substantially; consult your NAD audio specialist or a professional
antenna installer. Do not connect anything other than a loop antenna
to the AM ANTENNA terminal.
4CABLE/SAT & VCR : These comprise the L 54’s principal inputs.
Connect S-Video, composite video, and analog stereo audio from
source components such as HDTV/satellite tuners. VCR may be used
with recording components such as videocassette or DVD-recorders.
Connect the L 54’s VCR Audio/Video OUT to these components’ recordinput. (Make sure that SRS is set to OFF). Note that VCR may freely be
used for play-only components, in which case their OUT jacks would
remain unconnected.
5PRE-OUT SUBWOOFER : Connect this output to a powered (“active”)
subwoofer (or to a power amplifier channel driving a passive system).
6IR IN : This input is connected to the output of an IR (infrared) repeater
(Xantech or similar) or the IR output of another component to allow
control of the L 54 from a remote location. Ask your dealer or custom
installer for further details.

8DIGITAL OUTPUT, OPTICAL : Connect the OPTICAL DIGITAL
OUTPUT port to the corresponding S/PDIF digital input of a recording
component such as a CD recorder, DAT deck or computer soundcard.
11 SWITCHED AC OUTLET : This convenience jack can supply switched
power to another component or accessory. It is powered on and off by the
front panel POWER button (or the HTR 4’s ON and OFF buttons).The total
draw of all devices connected to this jack must not exceed 100 watts.

GETTING STARTED
Before you make the first connection to your L 54, you should have the arrangement of your
listening room/home theater components and furniture mapped out, at least initially. Unfortunately,
a discussion of the vital questions of loudspeaker placement and listening/viewing positions is
beyond our scope here. Suffice it to say that these two questions will influence your system’s ultimate
performance every bit as powerfully as your selection of electronics and speakers. Your NAD audio
specialist dealer will be happy to advise you and to recommend reference materials.

DEALING WITH HUM AND NOISE
DEUTSCH
Hum and noise sometimes may prove a challenge in audio systems. Note these considerations to help
prevent hum and noise problems:
• Power all your system’s audio component from AC outlets originating from the same circuit of your
house wiring. As far as possible, power all audio components from the same outlet, or adjacent
outlets on the same circuit. It may be useful to power video displays (and computers!) from outlets
on another circuit, especially if that circuit is supplied from the other “leg” of the house wiring.
• Do not bundle analog audio cables with AC power cables, or with coaxial digital-audio cables. It is
best if they cross at right angles if they must be in close proximity.
• Employ high-quality, well-shielded audio cable throughout, and ensure that all connections are
secure.
• A pencil-eraser can be used to burnish copper- and gold-plated contacts to ensure good, lowresistance contact; specialized contact-cleaners can also be useful. Avoid unnecessary unplugging
and re-plugging since the gold (or copper) contact plating of typical cable connectors, even very
high-quality ones, is very thin and easily worn.
NEDERLANDS
Track down hum/noise problems one component at a time, working backwards from the L 54. That is
a Connect the speakers to the L 54 only, and check for hum.
b Then connect one component only (a CD player, for example) alone, with no other components
connected and check for hum.
c Connect additional components, one at a time, to the L 54 and check for hum.
At each stage, if hum/noise appears, examine the audio cabling and AC-power routing of the new
component. In some cases, moving the new component’s AC cord to a different outlet, or installing a
ground-lift (3-to-2-prong adapter) on its power cord, will eliminate the hum.

SRS TruSurround
SRS Labs developed TruSurround®, a patented technology that accepts any multichannel source such
as Dolby Digital, Dolby Surround or DTS, including MPEG 1 and 2 and transforms it into a compelling
surround sound experience over just two speakers or headphones.
TruSurround is suited for any environment where multichannel content is experienced without the
benefit of having surround sound speakers installed. With TruSurround, incoming multichannel audio
is processed into two channels and delivered over stereo speakers, giving the listener a completely
immersive experience and the sensory perception that additional “phantom” speakers surround them.
To activate SRS TruSurround, press “AUDIO MODE” at the front panel or HTR 4 remote. Select SRS mode.
Toggle the SRS to ON or OFF using the L 54’s volume knob or the HTR 4 volume

Note
SRS TruSurround is designed to be used with surround encoded soundtracks, such as those found on
movies and music video DVDs. Results with stereo music soundtracks typically found on CDs can be
variable and we generally do not recommend SRS for enhancing these programs. Furthermore, SRS
decoding is only available on digital sources and cannot be selected for analog sources such as FM
radio and VCR inputs.

LEFT AND RIGHT (BALANCE ADJUST) SETUP
Adjusting the relative balance of your system’s loudspeakers ensures that surround-sound
recordings, whether music or film, will present the balance of effects, music, and dialog that the
artists intended. Additionally, if your system incorporates a subwoofer it establishes a correct
relationship between the volume of the subwoofer and the other speakers, and thus of lowfrequencies (bass) to other sonic elements.
After selecting “AUDIO MODE”, toggle from “LEFT” and “RIGHT” level adjustment and fine tune the level
of each channel with the volume knob or remote’s volume
keys.
SVENSKA
ADJUSTING THE TONE CONTROLS
The L 54 is fitted with BASS and TREBLE tone controls to adjust the tonal balance of your system.
Maximum and minimum values for both tone controls are -/+ 10 dB. Bass/treble settings affect only
the front left/right channels, not the subwoofer.

ENGLISH
DYNAMIC RANGE CONTROL (DRC)
You can select the effective dynamic range (subjective range from soft to loud) for playback of
Dolby 2.0 soundtracks. Settings of 25%, 50% and 75% progressively reduce dynamic range, making soft
sounds comparatively louder while limiting the peak loudness of loud ones.
The 100% setting is best for late-night sessions or other times when you wish to retain maximum dialog
intelligibility while minimizing overall volume levels. To maintain full dynamic range, set DRC to OFF.

NEDERLANDS
Incoming digital and audio signals present at either digital or analog audio are assigned to their fixed
inputs - CAB/SAT and VCR. Assign either coaxial or analog audio to CABLE/SAT input by toggling the
L 54’s ‘DISPLAY’ button on the front panel. The selected audio input will be displayed on the VFD after
releasing the ‘DISPLAY’ button. The same procedure is applicable when assigning optical or analog
audio to the VCR input.
The assigned audio input will always be recalled whenever that input is selected via the front panel
INPUT SELECT or the HTR 4 remote’s input-select buttons.
ESPAÑOL
It is not necessary to connect at the same time both analog audio and digital audio input for every
video input you employ. It is preferable to make only digital audio link to the L 54 for audio playback.
This avoids possible confusion and ensures that the L 54’s high performance digital audio circuitry will
always be employed.
ADJUSTING THE VOLUME
ITALIANO
In addition to the Volume knob, use the HTR 4’s VOL
keys to adjust the volume of the L 54 raising
or lowering the channels altogether. With HTR 4’s VOL
keys, a momentary keypress will change
the volume by 1 dB increments. If you hold down VOL
keys, the volume level change will “runon” until the key is released. Since recordings vary considerably in overall average level, there is no
imperative to listen at any particular volume setting. A setting of -20 may sound “as loud” from one CD
or DVD as -10 does from another.
The L 54 will power-up from Standby mode at whatever master volume setting was last used; however,
if the prior setting is greater than –10 dB, the L 54 will power up at -10 dB. This prevents inadvertently
beginning a session at excessive volume.
РУССКИЙ
MUTING THE SOUND
Use the HTR 4’s ‘Mute’ key to silence all channels completely. Muting is always available regardless of
the source or listening mode selections. Note that adjusting the volume upward via the HTR 4 or the
front panel knob automatically releases the mute function.
ADJUSTING THE SUBWOOFER LEVEL TRIM “ON THE FLY”
You can make changes to the relative level of subwoofer output. This may prove useful in a number of
circumstances; for example to reduce excessive deep bass (or enhance deep bass) by lowering (raising)
the subwoofer level.

USING THE L 54’s AM/FM RADIO
The L 54’s internal AM/FM tuner offers very high quality sound from radio broadcasts. The reception
and sound quality will always be dependent to a degree however on the type of antenna(s) used as
well as proximity to the broadcast origin, geography and weather conditions.
ABOUT ANTENNAS
FRANÇAIS
The supplied ribbon-wire FM antenna can be connected to the rear-panel FM-antenna input using
the included ‘balun’ adapter and should be fully extended to form a “T”. This folded-dipole antenna
will usually work best when oriented vertically, with the arms of its “T” fully outstretched and arranged
perpendicular to the origin of the desired broadcast. There are no ‘rules,’ however, and experimenting
freely with antenna placement and orientation may yield the clearest sound and lowest background
noise.
In areas of poor FM reception, an exterior FM antenna can improve performance dramatically. If radio
listening is important to you, consider consulting an antenna installation professional to optimize your
system.
DEUTSCH
The supplied AM ‘loop’ antenna will usually provide adequate reception. However, an exterior AM
antenna can be used to improve reception. Consult an antenna professional for more information.
ASSEMBLING THE LOOP ANTENNA
NEDERLANDS
1 Rotate the outer frame of the antenna.
2 Insert the bottom edge of the outer frame into the groove on the stand.
3 Extend the antenna cord.
SELECTING THE RADIO

SETTING RADIO PRESET
The L 54 can store as many as 60 (30 FM and 30 AM stations) of your favorite radio stations for
immediate recall. To store a radio preset, first tune the desired frequency (see above), then press the
front panel “SETUP/MEMORY” button. The VFD will show a blinking “PROG” icon and a vacant Preset

CHOOSING FM MUTE/MODE
The front-panel ‘FM MUTE/MODE’ key is a dual-purpose control. In the normal position, “ST” and
“MUTE” icons on the VFD are lit; only the stations with a strong signal can be listened to, and the noise
between stations is muted.
DEUTSCH
Pressing the “FM MUTE/MODE” button again (“ST” and “MUTE” icons on the VFD are extinguished)
allows distant and potentially noisy stations to be received. Noise is reduced if the FM station signal
level is less than the FM Stereo threshold (since mono FM is inherently less noise-prone) though at the
sacrifice of the stereo effect.
ABOUT RDS
NEDERLANDS
The Radio Data System (RDS) permits compatible tuners to display text determined by the broadcaster.
The L 54 supports two RDS modes, station-name (PS mode) and radio-text (RT mode). However, not
every FM station incorporates RDS in its broadcast signal. In most areas you will find from one to
several RDS-enabled stations, but it is by no means impossible that your favorite stations will not be
broadcasting RDS data.
VIEWING RDS TEXT
When an RDS-enabled FM broadcast is tuned, after a brief delay the “RDS” symbol will light in the
L 54’s front panel readout and the readout’s character section will show its station-name (PS) text:
“ROCK101,”for example.
ESPAÑOL
Press the front panel DISPLAY key to toggle the readout between this and the station’s radio-text (RT)

The NAD HTR 4 is ready to operate the L 54 right out of the box, but it is really eight remotes in one.
Each of the 8 Device Selector keys at the top of the handset can call up a new “page” of remote control
codes to be transmitted by the remaining 44 keys. You may “teach” codes from any infrared-remote
controlled component, regardless of brand, to any or all of these.
DEUTSCH
Obviously, the most logical system is that you teach the codes from your DVD player to the [DVD]
Device Selector “page,” your television’s codes to the [TV] “page,” and so on, but there is no required
scheme: You may load any commands to any key on any page (see “Learning Codes From Other
Remotes,” below).
NEDERLANDS
The HTR 4 is already preprogrammed with a full complement of commands for the L 54 on its [AMP]
Device Selector page, and as well as with library commands to operate most NAD-brand DVD, CD
or TAPE components on the corresponding Device Selector “pages.” These default commands are
permanent: Even if you teach the HTR 4 new commands to take their place, the underlying library
commands remain in place and can easily be recalled should you add an NAD component to your
system later (see “Delete Mode”, below).
Note: For use with the L 54, it should not be necessary to re-program any keys on the HTR 4 [AMP]
page. However, in order for the HTR 4 to control your specific NAD-brand components you may need
to load one or more different code-libraries (see “Loading Code Libraries,” below).
CONTROLLING THE L 54
ESPAÑOL
The HTR 4 is divided into two main sections. Eight Device Selector keys at the top—[AMP], [DVD,]
[TV,] and so on—set the handset’s remaining keys to a “page” of commands to control a particular
component. A Device Select key determines only what component the HTR 4 will command; it does
not perform any function on the L 54. All of the remaining keys are function keys that can “learn”
control codes from virtually any infrared remote controller, allowing you to teach the codes of your
equipment, regardless of brand, to the HTR 4.
ITALIANO
However, the HTR 4 is already preprogrammed to operate the L 54. All of the function keys on the
[AMP] Device Selector “page” perform L 54 functions. (The HTR 4 can also command many other NAD
components, from its [DVD,] [CD,] [TUNER,] and [TAPE] pages.)
SVENSKA
РУССКИЙ
It is important to note that certain HTR 4 keys perform different functions depending on the selected
Device Selector “page.” The color of the Device Selector key-labeling corresponds to the labeling of
the function keys. Most centrally, the orange [AMP] Device Selector “page” corresponds to the orange
input-select labeling above the numeric keys: When the HTR 4’s [AMP] Device Selector page is active,
these keys select the Receiver inputs. Similarly, the purple [DVD] Device Selector “page” corresponds to
several purple labels, the green [TV] page to green labels, and so on.

USING THE HTR 4 REMOTE CONTROL
ENGLISH
LEARNING CODES FROM OTHER REMOTES
FRANÇAIS
Begin by positioning the HTR 4 “nose-to-nose” with the source remote so the two devices’ infrared
windows are about 2 inches apart.
• Enter Learning Mode: On the HTR 4, simultaneously press-and-hold for 3 seconds both a Device
Selector key and the key until the Learn LED at the center of the HTR 4 turns steady green.
• Press the HTR 4’s function key you wish to teach a command; the Learn LED will turn amber.
• Press-and-hold the function key on the source remote: The HTR 4’s Learn LED will flicker amber for
a second or two, then turn solid green. The command is learned.
• Press the HTR 4’s Device Selector key again to exit the learning mode.
If the Learn LED does not flicker amber you may need to vary the distance between the remotes. If
the Learn LED turns red rather than green, that particular command of that source remote command
could not be learned.
DEUTSCH
Cancel Operation
You can cancel configuring a key, by pressing the active Device Selector key before the learn process is
complete; the Learn LED will turn red.
NEDERLANDS
Example: Learning “DVD Pause”
Position the HTR 4 and your DVD player’s remote as described above.
• On the HTR 4, simultaneously press-and-hold [DVD] and ; the Learn LED turns steady green.
• Press the HTR 4’s key; the Learn LED turns amber.
• Press-and-hold the DVD player’s remote’s pause key; the HTR 4’s Learn LED flickers amber and then
turns solid green. The command is learned.
• Press [DVD] again to exit the learning mode.
PUNCH-THROUGH
The HTR 4’s “punch-through” function allows you to retain a function key from one Device Select “page”
to another, so that, for example, the AMP [AUDIO MODE] function might still control the L 54 when the
DVD Device Selector page is active.
ESPAÑOL
Note
The HTR 4’s [VOL] keys are pre-programmed as “punched-through” for all Device Select pages: [VOL]
will operate the L 54’s volume regardless of the currently selected device. The [SUB] level control is
similarly pre-programmed as punched-through.
To set a punch through, after entering the Learning Mode, and pressing the desired key to be punched
through, simply press the device key twice of the device to punch through to. The status LED will turn
green; press the Device Selector key again to exit Learning Mode.
ITALIANO
Example: Punch-through AMP [AUDIO MODE] key to the DVD “page”
• On the HTR 4, simultaneously press-and-hold [DVD] and ; the Learn LED turns steady green.
• Press [AUDIO MODE]; the Learn LED turns amber.
• Press [AMP] twice; the Learn LED turns green.
• Press [DVD] again to exit the learning mode.
COPY COMMAND FROM ANOTHER BUTTON
РУССКИЙ
You may copy a command from any HTR 4 key to any other key. To copy a key function, after entering
the Learning Mode, and pressing the desired key to be copied to, simply press the device key from
which you wish to copy, having first pressed its Device Selector key if it resides on another “page.” The
status LED will turn green; press the Device Selector key again to exit Learning Mode.
Example: Copy the Pause command from the CD page to the AMP key:
• On the HTR 4, simultaneously press-and-hold [AMP] and ; the Learn LED turns steady green.
• Press (pause); the Learn LED turns amber.
• Press [CD]; press (pause); the Learn LED turns green.
• Press [AMP] again to exit the learning mode.
SVENSKA
Note
The copy and punch-through functions are similar. However, if you copy a command and then
subsequently delete, or over-write the original (source-key) command , the copied-to key’s
command remains unchanged. If you punch-through to a command and then delete or over-write
the original key, the punched-through functions also change accordingly.

USING THE HTR 4 REMOTE CONTROL
MACRO COMMANDS
A “macro” command is a series of two or more remote codes issued automatically from a single
keypress. You might use a macro to automate a simple command sequence, such as, “Turn on the DVD
player and then press ‘play.’” Or you might compose an elaborate macro to power up an entire system,
select a source, choose a Listening Mode, and begin playback—again, all from a single keypress. The
HTR 4 can store one macro on each of its function keys (these exclude the Device Selector keys).
FRANÇAIS
Note
Macros are independent of the currently selected device.
RECORDING MACROS
To record a macro, simultaneously press-and-hold for 3 seconds both the [MACRO] key and the HTR
4 function key to which you wish to assign the macro, until the status LED turns green. The macro
button will also light up.
DEUTSCH
Press the sequence of function keys to be recorded into the macro, being sure to first press the
requisite Device Selector key for each function (you may switch devices while recording the macro as
many times as necessary), allowing you to create macro containing commands from more than one
Device Selector “page.”
When you have finished entering the desired command sequence, press [MACRO] again
to store the macro; the Learn LED and [MACRO] key illumination will turn off.
NEDERLANDS
Note
Each macro can store a maximum of 64 command steps. If you exceed this number, the macro will
be stored automatically after the 64th command is added.
ESPAÑOL
Example: Record a Macro to the [0] key to Turn on the L 54, Select the DVD Input, and Commence
Playback:
• On the HTR 4, simultaneously press-and-hold [MACRO] and [0] (numeric zero); the Learn LED turns
steady green.
• Press [AMP]; press [ON]; press [1] (red “DVD”); press [DVD]; press [ ] (Play) - the Learn LED blinks as
each step is added.
• Press [MACRO] again to exit the macro-record mode.
To clear a macro, perform the above steps without entering any functions.
Executing Macros
To execute a macro, press and release [MACRO]; its key illumination lights for 5 seconds. While it
remains lit, press an HTR 4 key to which a macro has previously been stored.
ITALIANO
The corresponding macro will run; as each step executes, its “parent” Device Selector’s key flashes lights
briefly; when execution is finished, the [MACRO] key illumination goes out. Pressing any other HTR 4
key while a macro is executing will abort the macro. Remember that you must hold the HTR 4 so that
its infrared emitter can activate the target components.
SVENSKA
РУССКИЙ
Note
When a macro executes, a 1 second delay is automatically inserted between its commands. If
you need more than a 1 second delay between particular commands ­— for example, to permit a

library commands are the pre-programmed NAD codes, such as the native L 54 commands on the
[AMP] “page.”).
You can delete commands by layers back “down” to the default library command on any key, removing
learned commands, punched-through functions, and copied keys.
ESPAÑOL
Note
The default library commands cannot be deleted, so you need not worry that using Delete Mode
might cause irreparable changes.
To enter Delete Mode, simultaneously press-and-hold for 3 seconds both the desired key’s Device
Selector key and the [RTN] key, until the Learn LED turns green. Press the function key whose
command you wish to delete; the Learn LED flashes; the number of times indicates which type of
function has become active - see the table below. Press the active Device Selector key again to exit
Delete Mode.
ITALIANO
Note
You may delete multiple function-key commands on the same Device Selector “page,” but to delete
from more than one Device Selector page you must exit Delete Mode and then re-enter it on the
required page.

USING THE HTR 4 REMOTE CONTROL
LOADING CODE LIBRARIES
The HTR 4 can store a different library of default NAD codes for each of its Device Selector “pages.”
If the original default library does not control your NAD CD player, tape deck, DVD player, or other
component, follow the procedure below to change the code-library.
FRANÇAIS
Begin by ensuring that the component you wish the HTR 4 to control is plugged in and powered-up
(“on,” not merely in standby). To enter the HTR 4’s Library Mode, simultaneously press-and-hold for 3
seconds both the desired Device Selector key and the [PROGRAM] key, until the Learn LED turns green.
While keeping the HTR 4 pointed toward the component, enter the first appropriate three-digit
code-library number from the table below. If the component turns off, press [ENTER] to accept that
code-library number and exit the Library Mode. If the component does not turn off, enter the next
three-digit code-library number from the table.

When you enter the correct number the component will turn off; press [ENTER] to accept that code
library number and exit the Library Mode.
SEARCH MODE
ESPAÑOL
If none of the codes from the table, when entered, turns on the component, and if you are quite sure
you have followed the above procedure completely and carefully, you may want to try the “search”
method as follows:
ITALIANO
Enter Library Mode by simultaneously pressing-and-holding for 3 seconds both the desired Device
Selector key and the [PROGRAM] button until the Learn LED turns green. Now press-and-hold the
HTR 4’s [ ] or [ ]) key; the remote will step through all the available codes at a rate of approximately 1
per second.
When the component turns off, immediately release the cursor key; press [ENTER] to accept that codelibrary and exit the Library Mode. Try a few commands; should you prove to have stepped past the
needed code-library, re-enter the Library Mode and use the cursor key to step back to it.
SVENSKA
РУССКИЙ
Note
It is possible that search mode will find code-libraries that operate, at least partially, some other
brand (non-NAD) components. You may certainly exploit such capabilities as you find them.
However, since we can only ensure the completeness or accuracy of NAD code-libraries, we cannot
support the HTR 4’s operation with other-brand components.

CHECKING CODE-LIBRARY NUMBER
You can check the current code-library on any Device Selector key as follows. Enter Library Mode by
simultaneously pressing-and-holding for 3 seconds both the desired component’s Device Selector key
and the [PROGRAM] key until the Learn LED turns green. Press the [DISP] key; the HTR 4 indicates the
current code-library by flashing its [TAPE], [VCR], and [MACRO] keys.
FRANÇAIS
For example, to indicate code-library #501, the HTR 4 will flash [TAPE] 5 times, pause, and then flash
[MACRO] once. You might wish to make a note of your components’ code-library numbers.
