Remote control use
Open the battery compartment
of the remote control and insert
2 alkaline batteries, type AA
(R06, UM-3).
Remove batteries if they are
dead or if the remote control
will not be used for a long time.
Batteries contain chemical substances, so they should
be disposed of properly.
The buttons on the remote control work the same way as the
corresponding ones on the receiver.
Important!
You have to press a source button for longer than 1 second to
switch the sound source on the receiver. Pressing a source
button for less than 1 second will only switch the remote
control to use the commands for the selected product.
GUIDE
OK
MENU
The remote control remains tuned to the selected source until
another source button on the remote control is pressed. This
enables you to operate additional sources (i. e. winding a
tape) without changing the source on the receiver.

REMOTE CONTROL
You can identify the universal remote control by the
inscription Multibrand/Universal.
The universal remote control must be programmed to use the
codes for your appliances of different brands. This is done by
keying in a 4-digit code or by scanning the codes until the
correct one is found. We recommend to using the 4-digit
code. This method is faster and more reliable. The code
scanning method should be used only if you cannot find the
code for one of your appliances. The codes are listed at the
end of this book.
Important!
Use the remote control buttons for programming, not the
buttons of the receiver or other appliances.
Programming with the 4-digit code
1 Keep the source button for the appliance which should be
controlled and2 pressed for 3 seconds.
2 Key in the 4-digit code for the appliance (codetable at the
end of the booklet).
Notes: – If more than 4 digits are entered, the remote control
will recognize only the ones keyed in first.
– If you do not key in a code within 30 seconds the
remote control will switch off the programming
function without changing the code.
– To program a new appliance, simply overwrite the
old code by entering a new one.
Once you have found and tested the codes for your various
appliances, you may want to write them down here.

System control bus, CINEMA LINK
If the receiver and your Philips TV (or even better in addition
a Philips VCR or DVD player) with Cinemalink are connected
with the CINEMA LINK system bus control, some extra
system benefits are offered:
– Upon starting a source, the system will automatically
switch to that input.
– You may control the system via the TV screen. Depending
on the language of the TV, this can be done in your
preferred language.
– The TV can function as the center speaker of your system,
making a separate center speaker unnecessary.
(The cable A has to be purchased separately.)
– By pressing the standby button on the remote control, you
can switch the complete system to standby.

Positioning the speakers
General hints for positioning
Avoid positioning the speakers in a corner or on the floor as
this will boost the bass tones too much. Placing the speakers
behind curtains, furniture, etc. will reduce the treble
response. The listener should always be able to ”see” the
speakers.
Each room has different acoustic characteristics and the
positioning possibilities often are limited. You can find the
best position for your speakers by referring to the picture
above.
As a minimum we recommend 5 speakers (2 front, a center,
2 surround) for good surround sound. It is possible to
reproduce some kind of surround sound with fewer speakers.
This is done by redirecting the signals which are foreseen for
the missing speakers to the existing ones. See “Menus” on
how to set up the receiver correctly for the number and size
of the speakers used.
Positioning the front speakers
The front speakers should be placed to the right and left in
front of the listening position like usual stereo speakers.
Positioning the center speaker
The center speaker should be placed in the center between
the two front speakers, e. g. underneath or on top of the TV.
The best height for the center speaker is the height of the
listener’s ears (while seated).
Positioning the surround speakers
The surround speakers should face each other and be in line
with, or slightly behind the listener.
Positioning the subwoofer
A subwoofer can be used to enhance the bass performance of
your system dramatically. The subwoofer can be positioned
anywhere in the room, because it is not possible to locate the
source of deep tones. Nevertheless, you should not place the
subwoofer in the middle of a room, since the bass could be
severely weakened. Do not place any object on the
subwoofer.
Speaker setup and testing
The relative volume of the speakers must be adjusted for
optimal surround sound. You should be at your usual listening
position when adjusting the speaker volume. See “Receiver
menu” on how to unit up the receiver for the used speakers.
Ideally, the volume in the listening position should be the
same from all speakers.
1 Press POWER / STANDBY to switch on the receiver.
2 Press TEST TONE on the remote control.
y A test tone coming from the different speakers, except
the subwoofer, is heard.
3 Press +/- REAR on the remote control to
increase/decrease the volume of the actual speaker. The
best result is achieved when all speakers have equal
volume in the listening position.
4 Press TEST TONE on the remote control.
y The test tone stops.
Note: If you are not completely satisfied with the volume
settings, we recommend making minor adjustments to
them during surround sound playback.
Power handling
If the receiver is used at very high power it can produce
distortions which may damage your speakers seriously. If
distortions occur, reduce the volume and the tone controls to
a level where the sound is acceptable again.
To avoid overheating of the unit a safety circuit has
been built in. Therefore your set may disconnect under
extreme conditions. If this happens, switch the unit off
and let it cool down before reusing it. After having let
the set cool down switch the set on again and select
the desired source by turning SOURCE SELECT.
Headphones
Connecting headphones to PHONES will switch off the
speakers. The receiver switches to STEREO and surround
sound will be reduced to a stereo signal which is reproducible
by standard headphones.
Disconnecting the headphones switches on the speakers
again. If you wish to enjoy surround sound again, switch the
receiver back to surround sound.
Maintenance
Clean the receiver with a soft,
slightly dampened, lint-free cloth. Do
not use any cleaning agents as they
may have a corrosive effect.
Do not expose the receiver to
humidity, rain, sand or excessive heat
(caused by heating equipment or
direct sunlight).

SYSTEM SETUP
English
Receiver adjustment
Once the number and position of loudspeakers has been
fixed, you can adjust the initial receiver settings for optimum
surround sound with the actual setup:
1 Set which speakers have been connected to the receiver
(see “Menus / SPEAKR SETUP”).
Note: The initial setting of your receiver is:
two front speakers left and right: present
(cannot be altered)
center speaker: present
two rear speakers: present
subwoofer: present
2 Select the size of the speakers (SMALL or LARGE)
(see “Menus / SPEAKR SIZES”).
Select SMALL if your speaker is able to reproduce low
notes down to at least 80–100 Hz.
Select LARGE if your speaker is able to reproduce low
notes down to at least 50 Hz.
(As a rule of thumb, a LARGE speaker has a cone diameter
of at least 12 cms (5 inches).)
See the specification sheets of your loudspeakers.
Note: The initial setting of your receiver is:
FR 985, FR 986, FR 995, FR 996:
all speakers: LARGE
FR 963, FR 994:
all speakers: SMALL
3 Set the distance from the speakers to the listener’s position
(see “Menus / SPK DISTANCE”).
Note: The initial setting of your receiver is:
FR 985, FR 986, FR 995, FR 996:
all speakers: 10 feet (3 meters)
FR 963, FR 994:

6 CHANNEL-DVD/SACD INPUT selection
The 6 CHANNEL / DVD INPUT connectors can be assigned to
any of the available sources (excluding TUNER and PHONO).
The assignment can be done via the * SELECT INPUT
option in the menu. See below for more details.
Reassigning a source selection
If a source is selected with SOURCE SELECT the standard
audio input is used. To change this, the source selection must
be reassigned to another audio input.
Example: Reassigning CD from the analog CD IN audio input
to the digital COAX 2 IN audio input.
1 Choose * SELECT INPUT from the menu and press
NEXT 2.
2 Turn SOURCE SELECT to select the source which should be
reassigned (e. g. CD).
y The name of the source is displayed and the light of the
source flashes.
Using one source selection for two or more
appliances
You may assign more than one source to a source selection.
This can be useful when products are connected one after the
other in a chain.
Example: A VCR is connected to the TV but only the TV is
connected to the receiver. Both SOURCE SELECT
settings, TV as well as VCR, have to use the TV
input connectors.
1 Choose * SELECT INPUT from the menu and press
NEXT 2.
2 Turn SOURCE SELECT to select the source which should be
reassigned (e. g. VCR).
y The name of the source is displayed and the light of the
source flashes.
3 Turn X MENU NAVIGATOR to select the input connectors
which should be used (e. g. VCR -> TV IN).
4 Press ENTER / OK to confirm your selection.
y STORED is displayed briefly.
5 This source selection is now using the chosen audio input (e.
g. VCR uses the TV IN input connectors, VCR <TV IN> is
displayed briefly when switching to VCR).
About 6 CHANNEL-DVD/SACD INPUT
The 6 CHANNEL / DVD INPUT can be used to connect a
device with a built-in multichannel decoder (e.g. Dolby Digital,
DTS, etc.) and 6-channel output connector, i. e. a high end
DVD/SACD player.
When using the 6 CHANNEL / DVD INPUT audio input, the
receiver works as a multichannel amplifier. The source
reproduces surround sound and sends it to the receiver
divided into the necessary channels. Therefore the
SURROUND ON/OFF, HALL and SURR. MODE button have no
effect since the provided signal is already multichannel.
From a source which is connected to the
6 CHANNEL / DVD INPUT audio input cannot be recorded.
3 Turn X MENU NAVIGATOR to select the input connectors
which should be used (e. g. CD -> COAX2).
4 Press ENTER / OK to confirm your selection.
y STORED is displayed briefly.
5 This source selection is now using the chosen audio input
(e. g. CD uses the COAX 2 IN input connectors, COAX 2
lights when switching to CD).

– When recording a Dolby Digital or DTS signal, each
track must be recorded individually.
– Digital recording is not possible when the digital
source material is copy-protected.
About surround sound
Switching surround sound
Surround sound gives you a completely new listening
sensation. You will have the feeling of being in the middle of
the action, because sound is coming from everywhere around
you. Look out for TV broadcasts, audio and video tapes and
discs with the 3, 1 or
marks which are
encoded for multichannel surround sound. You should prefer
Dolby Digital or DTS to get the most out of your receiver.
With surround sound on, you can switch through the different
surround modes. Note that the possibilities are related to
speaker setup defined in the receivers menu.
The FR 994, FR 995 and FR 996 are able to reproduce DTS
surround sound. DTS is a premium multichannel surround
sound system available on DVD discs, laserdiscs and audio
discs. Consult your software dealer on the availability of DTS
software in your region.
Notice that DVD discs do not always carry full multichannel
surround. To be sure that a disc is multichannel encoded
consult your dealer.
Most ordinary stereo tapes and discs can be replayed using
surround sound settings with good results. If the reproduction
is distorted in surround mode, switch to normal stereo mode.
The availabilty of the various surround sound modes
described depends on the number of speakers used and the
incoming sound information.
If a digital surround signal is detected, the receiver will scroll
either DOLBY DIGITAL or DTS.
1 Press SURROUND ON/OFF to switch on the surround sound.
y The surround mode in use is scrolled.
2 Press SURR. MODE repeatedly to listen to the different
surround modes (if available).
yThe chosen mode and the speakers used are displayed.
If the incoming multichannel signals are reduced to
fewer output signals, DOWNMIX is displayed.

HALL
The sound reproduction is enhanced and a slight echo is
added. This gives the impression of being in a large room.
Can only be used in stereo mode.
SURROUND
The surround mode enables normal surround sound
reproduction with 4 or 5 speakers. Depending on the source
material, Dolby Surround Pro Logic, Dolby Digital or DTS is
reproduced.
Virtual Surround
Your receiver is able to reproduce one or more forms of virtual
surround sound. Virtual surround gives a more real life sound
impression by creating phantom speakers in addition to or
instead of real speakers. The position of the listener
influences the surround effect. The area where the effect is
best is shown in grey.

In addition to SURROUND, the surround mode used –
depending on the source material – will be displayed. In case
of digital surround, the sound format AC-3 (for Dolby Digital) or
DTS will be displayed, followed by the sound channels, available
on the source (e. g. DVD).
Example: AC-3 3/2.1 Dolby Digital, 3 front channels,
2 surround channels and a

AC-3 3/1.0 Dolby Digital, 3 front channels,
1 (mono) surround channel without
subwoofer signal.
DTS 3/2.1 DTS, 3 front channels, 2 surround
channels and a subwoofer channel.
The level of virtual surround sound effect can be adjusted in
the setup menu. The following surround sound modes are
available:
FRONT-3 STEREO
The surround sound is muted. 3 Stereo lets you listen to
surround sound without using the surround speakers.
MULTI FRONT (FR 994, FR 995, FR 996 only)
Phantom speakers are created next to the left and right front
speaker.
STEREO
All sound is reproduced and played through the front left and
right speakers. This enables standard stereo reproduction.
MULTI REAR (FR 994, FR 995, FR 996 only)
Phantom speakers are created next to the left and right rear
speaker.
3D SURROUND
No rear speakers are needed. The sound of the rear channel
is simulated by the front speakers. Surround sound is
simulated through the front left, right and center speakers.
NATURAL SURROUND (FR 994, FR 995, FR 996 only)
Phantom speakers are created next to the left and right front
and rear speakers.
Note: The availability of MULTI FRONT and
MULTI REAR depends on the sound channels on the
source material (FR 994, FR 995, FR 996 only).
(only on the remote control)
The loud parts of the sound are lowered and the soft passages
are raised. You can enjoy surround sound without disturbing
sleeping children or neighbors. Night mode only works with
Dolby Digital, and only if supported by the source material.
