Notes on speaker use
≥Use only supplied speakers
Using other speakers can damage the unit, and sound quality will be
negatively affected.
≥ You can damage your speakers and shorten their useful life if you play
sound at high levels over extended periods.
≥ Reduce the volume in the following cases to avoid damage:
– When playing distorted sound.
– When the speakers are reverberating due to a record player, noise
from FM broadcasts, or continuous signals from an oscillator, test
disc, or electronic instrument.
– When adjusting the sound quality.
– When turning the unit on or off.
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
setup combinations.
If this occurs, turn the television off for about 30 minutes.
The demagnetizing function of the television should correct the problem.
If it persists, move the speakers further away from the television.
Speaker installation options
∫ Attaching to a wall
You can attach all of the speakers (except subwoofer) to a wall.
≥ The wall or pillar on which the speakers are to be attached should be
capable of supporting 10 kg (22 lbs) per screw. Consult a qualified
building contractor when attaching the speakers to a wall. Improper
attachment may result in damage to the wall and speakers.

≥ Reduce the volume before
connecting.
≥ Audio is automatically switched to
2-channel stereo.
≥ To prevent hearing damage, avoid
listening for prolonged periods of
time.
Listening caution
EST. 1924
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:
≥ 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.
RQTX0069
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.

Glossary
Decoder
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)
A decoder restores the coded audio signals on DVDs to normal. This is
called decoding.
This is a system used for compressing/decoding color still pictures. The
benefit of JPEG is less deterioration in picture quality considering the
degree of compression.
Dolby Digital
This is a method of coding digital signals developed by Dolby
Laboratories. Apart from stereo (2-channel) audio, these signals can also
be 5.1-channel sound.
Linear PCM (pulse code modulation)
DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
An audio compression method that compresses audio to approximately
one tenth of its size without any considerable loss of audio quality.
This surround system is used in many movie theaters around the world.
There is good separation between the channels, so realistic sound effects
are possible.
These are uncompressed digital signals, similar to those found on CDs.
MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3)
Playback control (PBC)
Dynamic range
If a Video CD has playback control, you can select scenes and
information with menus.
Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level of sound that
can be heard above the noise of the equipment and the highest level of
sound before distortion occurs.
Progressive/Interlaced
Frame still and field still
Frames are the still pictures that go together to make a moving picture.
There are about 30 frames shown each second.
One frame is made up of two fields. A regular television shows these
fields one after the other to create frames.
A still is shown when you pause a moving picture. A frame still is made up
of two alternating fields, so the picture may appear blurred, but overall
quality is high.
A field still is not blurred, but it has only half the information of a frame still
so picture quality is lower.
NTSC, the video signal standard, has 480 interlaced (i) scan lines,
whereas progressive scanning uses twice the number of scan lines. This
is called 480p.
Using progressive output, you can enjoy the high-resolution video
recorded on media such as DVD-Video.
Your television must be compatible to enjoy progressive video.
Sampling frequency
Sampling is the process of converting the heights of sound wave (analog
signal) samples taken at set periods into digits (digital encoding).
Sampling frequency is the number of samples taken per second, so larger
numbers mean more faithful reproduction of the original sound.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
WMA (Windows MediaTM Audio)
HDMI is a next-generation digital interface for consumer electronic products.
Unlike conventional connections, it transmits uncompressed digital video
and audio signals on a single cable. This unit supports high-definition video
output (720p, 1080i, 1080p) from the HDMI AV OUT terminal. To enjoy highdefinition video, a high-definition compatible television is required.
WMA is a compression format developed by Microsoft Corporation. It
achieves the same sound quality as MP3 with a file size that is smaller
than that of MP3.
