HDMI connection

The HDMI input terminal on the unit’s rear is made to specifications that presume connection of a DVD recorder/DVD player.

When other equipment is connected, sounds may not come out of the unit, or pictures shown on the equipment (TV) connected to the HDMI output terminal may be disrupted.

In such cases, see page 19 and make connections other than HDMI.

You can hear DVD sounds from speakers on the TV when you turn off the unit connected in the way shown above (standby through function). This convenient function enables you to enjoy DVDs late at night.

Note

HDMI stands for High-Definition Multimedia Interface.

• The HDMI cable enables you to transmit digital audio and video signals using a single cable. You can also transmit control signals using HDMI connections.

• The unit complies with CPPM

∗ 1

. It can digitally transmit surround sound in DVD-Audio sources.

1 Content Protection for Prerecorded Media (CPPM): This copyright protection technology prevents copying of DVD-Audio files.

• We recommend using Panasonic cables 5.0 meters long or shorter for enjoying 1125p

∗ 2

(1080p) pictures. They prevent picture degradation.

2 1125p (1080p): a progressive (non-interlace) scanning system that sends 1,125 scan lines every 1/60 second.

• The audio signal transmitted through HDMI takes priority when you use both HDMI and digital terminals (

á pages 14 to 17) for connection.

When the HDMI terminal does not exist on your TV, DVD recorder (DVD player) or both

You can connect cables to S video terminals.

You can connect cables to component terminals.

You can connect cables to video terminals.

Step

2

Connect speakers

The ideal placement is to set each speaker (excluding the subwoofer) the same distance away from the listening-viewing position.

Measure the actual distance from each of the connected speakers to the listening-viewing position and perform steps instructed in “Setting distances” (

á

page 35) or perform steps instructed in “Auto speaker setup using the setup microphone” (

á

page 24) when you cannot install speakers the same distance away.

Example: Center speaker (1), front speakers (2), surround speakers (2), surround back speaker(s)

(1 or 2) and subwoofer

This is a placement suited for playing 6.1-channel sources

(Dolby Digital Surround EX and DTS-ES materials).

This placement offers 7.1/6.1-channel playback of 2-channel and 5.1-channel sources with the aid of Dolby Pro Logic ,

NEO:6, and SFC technology.

Surround back speaker (left)

Front speakers (left, right)

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

Center speaker

Place underneath or above the center of the TV. Aim the speaker at the seating area.

When you do not install the center speaker, sound assigned to it is distributed to front speakers and output from them.

Surround speakers (left, right)

Place on the side of or slightly behind the seating area.

When you do not install surround speakers, sound assigned to them is distributed to front speakers and output from them.

Surround back speakers (left, right)

Place behind the seating area, about 1 meter (3 feet) higher than ear level.

When you do not install any surround back speaker, sound assigned to them is distributed to surround speakers or front speakers and output from them.

Subwoofer

The subwoofer can be placed in any position as long as it is at a reasonable distance from the TV.

If using 4-mm plug

Turn speaker terminals clockwise and tighten them before inserting plugs into their holes.

Listening caution

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 that you 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.
