Precautions

Before using this unit please read these operating instructions carefully. Take special care to follow the warnings indicated on the unit itself as well as the safety suggestions listed below.

Afterwards keep them handy for future reference.

Safety

1. Power Source—The unit should be connected to power supply only of the type described in the operating instructions or as marked on the unit.

2. Polarization—If the unit is equipped with a polarized AC power plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other), that plug will fit into the AC outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.

3. Power Cord Protection—AC power supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them. Never take hold of the plug or cord if your hand is wet, and always grasp the plug body when connecting or disconnecting it.

4. Nonuse Periods—When the unit is not used, turn the power off. When left unused for a long period of time, the unit should be unplugged from the household AC outlet.

Installation

Environment

1. Outdoor Antenna Grounding—If an outside antenna is connected to the receiver, be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical

Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70–1990, provides information with respect to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode. See figure below.

Listening caution

Concerning the remote control

Battery installation

R6, AA size, UM-3

EST. 1924

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 Industries 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 level” 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 at a safe level

BEFORE your hearing adapts.

To establish 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 leave 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.

Insert the batteries observing the correct polarities (+, –).

Use of batteries

Align the poles (+ and –) properly when inserting the batteries.

Do not mix old and new batteries or different types of batteries.

Do not recharge ordinary dry cell batteries.

Do not heat or disassemble the batteries. Do not allow them to contact flame or water.

Remove the batteries if the unit is not to be used for a long time.

Do not keep together with metallic objects such as necklaces.

Do not use rechargeable type batteries.

Do not use batteries if the covering has been peeled off.

Mishandling of batteries can cause electrolyte leakage which can damage items the fluid contacts and may cause a fire.

If electrolyte leaks from the batteries, consult your dealer.

Wash thoroughly with water if electrolyte comes in contact with any part of your body.

Correct method of use

Remote control signal sensor

About 7 meters in front of the signal sensor

30˚ 30˚

Transmission window

Operation notes

• Do not place obstacles between the remote control signal sensor and remote control unit.

• Do not expose the remote control signal sensor to direct sunlight or to the bright light of a fluorescent light.

• Take care to keep the remote control signal sensor and end of the remote control unit free from dust.

• If this system is installed in a rack with glass doors, the glass doors’ thickness or color might make it necessary to use the remote control a shorter distance from the system.

To prevent damage

• Never place heavy items on top of the unit.

• Do not disassemble or reconstruct the unit.

• Do not spill water or other liquids into the unit.

Placement of speakers

Placement of front speakers

Place the speakers so that the super woofer is on the outside.

Note

• Keep your speakers at least 10 mm ( 13 /

˝) away from the system for proper ventilation.

• To avoid damage to the speakers, do not touch the speaker cones if you have taken the nets off.

Placement of center/surround speakers

Center speaker

Place the center speaker above your TV, as close to it as possible.

Note

Do not place the center speaker on this unit as sound quality will be affected.

Surround speakers

As well as enjoying normal stereo reproduction with the left and right front speakers, surround speakers can also be connected to the system in order to enjoy a feeling of depth and movement of sound.

Place the speakers with the Panasonic logo facing toward the listening position.

We recommend that surround speakers be placed on the side of, or slightly behind, the listener at ear level.

However, the position should be adjusted to your personal preference, because the effect varies to some degree depending upon the type of music and the music source.

Attaching to a wall

Set speaker onto screws and slide through bracket to lock into position.

Note

The wall or pillar on which the speaker systems are to be attached should be capable of supporting a weight of 5 kg.

For your reference

To fix the wire, feed it through slit a

in the center-bottom of the speaker.

Caution

• Use the speakers only with the recommended system. Failure to do so may lead to damage to the amplifier and/or the speakers, and may result in the risk of fire. Consult a qualified service person if damage has occurred or if you experience a sudden change in performance.

• Do not attempt to attach these speakers to walls using methods other than those described in this manual.

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.

Note

Surround speakers do not have magnetic shielding. Do not place them near televisions, personal computers or other devices easily influenced by magnetism.
