Connecting antennas
FM Indoor Antenna
Connect the supplied FM antenna to the FM (75 Ω)
jack. Move the antenna in various directions until the
clearest signal is received.
Note:
– Keep the antenna as far away as possible from the TV, VCR
or any radiation source to prevent unwanted noise.
FM Outdoor Antenna
For better FM reception, use a 75 ohm coaxial cable (not
supplied) to connect the system to an outdoor FM antenna
as shown.

PRE-OUT
AM Indoor Loop Antenna
The supplied high-performance AM loop antenna is
sufficient for good reception in most areas.
1 Connect the loop antenna’s wires to AM and GND.
2 Place the antenna in a location (for example, on a shelf or
window frame) that gives the best reception.
Note:
– Keep the antenna as far away as possible from the entire
system, speaker cables, and the power cable to prevent
unwanted noise.
AM Outdoor Antenna
If the supplied AM loop antenna does not deliver sufficient
reception, use an outdoor AM antenna (not supplied).
Use an insulated wire more than 15 feet (5m) long. Strip
one end, and connect that end to AM.
String the antenna wire outdoors or indoors near a
window. For better reception, connect the GND terminal
to a reliable ground.

IMPORTANT!
– There are various ways to connect the system
to a TV (as shown in the illustration below).You
only need to make one of the best connections,
depending on the capabilities of your TV system.
– The player’s S-VIDEO jack is for use with the
built-in 3-disc DVD player only. If you plan to use a
VCR, satellite, or other equipment with this DVD
system, you must use audio/visual cables to
connect your TV to MONTOR OUT (and view
DVDs through MONITOR OUT as well).
● Use the supplied audio cables to connect
AUDIO-TV IN (L/R) jacks to the corresponding AUDIO
OUT jacks on the TV.
● Use the supplied video cable to connect
VIDEO-MONITOR OUT jack to the corresponding
VIDEO IN jack on a TV.
Option
If the TV has a S-Video input jack, connect it to the
VIDEO-S-VIDEO OUT jack using an S-video cable (not
supplied) instead of MONITOR OUT jack for better
picture clarity.
Notes:
– Ensure that the speaker cables are correctly connected.
Improper connections may damage the system due to shortcircuit.
– For optimal sound performance, use the supplied speakers.
– Do not connect more than one speaker to any one pair of
+/- speaker jacks.
– Do not connect speakers with an impedance lower than
the speakers supplied. Please refer to the SPECIFICATIONS
section of this manual.

not be used for a long time.
– Do not use old and new or different types of
batteries in combination.
– Batteries contain chemical substances, so they
should be disposed off properly.
IMPORTANT!
– Please sit at your usual listening position in
order to set up the speaker balance correctly.
– To change the surround sound settings, the
DVD system must be in a surround mode that
uses all the speakers (for example, Dolby Digital).
Switching on the system
Placing the speakers
To obtain the best surround effect, place the speaker as
follows.
1 After completing all the connections, connect the AC
power cord of the player and subwoofer to the wall outlet.

Dolby Digital Surround
Dolby Digital (also known as AC-3 or Dolby 5.1) and
MPEG Multichannel delivers a realistic and dynamic sound
similar to theater and cinema. It requires connection of all
five speakers (front left/right, center, surround left/right) and
subwoofer for correct Dolby Digital Surround sound
reproduction. Each channel plays its own unique role in
providing the right sound. Front left, center and right join
two surround speakers to reproduce high, mid and bass
frequencies in five full-range channels of surround. Bass
rumble, explosions and low frequency effects you feel are
delivered through the subwoofer. A large number of DVD
discs have been recorded in Dolby Digital Surround.
DTS Surround
The DTS Surround is a cinema surround sound format that
offers superior digital audio performance. DTS offers more
clarity and definition especially for higher tones. The better
sound quality is a result of the limited sound compression
(3:1 instead of 11:1 for Dolby Digital) and the 20-bit
resolution.
Dolby Pro Logic Surround
The Dolby Pro Logic Surround system is a specially
encoded two-channel analog format that will produce
sound through four speaker channels (front left, center,
front right, monaural surround) when a Dolby Pro Logic
Decoder is used. It is also compatible with stereo systems
but the user will only have two-channel (front left & right)
