Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the JVC Compact Component System.
We hope it will be a valued addition to your home, giving you years of enjoyment.
Be sure to read this instruction manual carefully before operating your new stereo system.
In it you will find all the information you need to set up and use the system.
If you have a query that is not answered by the manual, please contact your dealer.
Features
Here are some of the things that make your System both powerful and simple to use.
■ With the slot-loading CD mechanism, you can choose to place the System either vertically or horizontally.
■ Many types of compact discs are sold for a variety of uses. The Video CD Player can play the following compact discs.
Types of CD you can play:
• Video CD without Playback Control function: for audio and video (moving picture) reproduction.
• Video CD with Playback Control function: featuring menu-type operation and super-fine still pictures for audio
and video (moving picture) reproduction.
• Digital Audio CD, finalized CD-R and CD-RW: for audio reproduction. You can play back your original CD-R or
CD-RW recorded in Music CD format or recorded in MP3 format that is compliant with ISO 9660 Level 1 or Level 2.
(However they may not be played back depending on their characteristics or recording conditions.)
• CDs you cannot play: Do not play SVCDs, DVDs, CD-ROMs, CD-G or CD-I Discs on this System. Playing CDROMs may generate a noise which can damage your speakers.
■ The controls and operations have been redesigned to make them very easy to use, freeing you to
just enjoy the music.
• With JVC’s COMPU PLAY you can turn on the System and automatically start the Radio or
CD Player with a single touch.
■ The System incorporates Active Hyper Bass PRO circuitry to faithfully reproduce low frequency sounds.
■ A 45-station preset capability (30 FM and 15 AM) in addition to auto-seek and manual tuning.
■ CD options that include repeat, random and program play.
■ Timer functions; Daily Timer and Sleep Timer.
■ You can connect various external units, such as an MD recorder.
How This Manual Is Organized
• Basic information that is the same for many different functions - e.g. setting the volume - is given in the section
‘Basic Operations’, and not repeated under each function.
• The names of buttons/controls and display messages are written in all capital letters: e.g. FM/AM, “CD NO DISC”.
• System functions are written with an initial capital letter only: e.g. Normal Play.
Use the table of contents to look up specific information you require.
We have enjoyed making this manual for you, and hope it serves you in enjoying the many features built into your System.
WARNINGS
• DO NOT PUT ANYTHING ON THE PANEL. IF THE SYSTEM IS OPERATED WITH SOMETHING PUT
ON THE PANEL, IT WILL BE DAMAGED WHEN YOU TRY TO OPEN THE PANEL.
• SUPPLIED SPEAKERS ARE EXCLUSIVELY FOR THIS SYSTEM. USING WITH OTHER DEVICES WILL
DAMAGE THE SPEAKERS.

Getting Started
Installing the Equipment on the Wall
The Center Unit and Speakers can be attached to a wall.
CAUTIONS:
Attachment to a wall
• The Center Unit weighs approximately 4.3 kg. When its buttons are operated, an additional force will be
applied to it in the downward direction. Therefore, sufficient care must be taken when attaching to a wall
to prevent any accidents caused by the Center Unit’s falling off the wall.
• Before attaching the Center Unit to the wall, check the wall and other related aspects, and verify whether
the strength of the wall will be sufficient not only to support the weight of the Center Unit itself but also
to withstand the additional downward force which will be applied to it during operation. (Do not attach
the Center Unit to a plywood or plasterboard wall. The Center Unit may fall and sustain damage as a result.) If you do not know the strength of the wall and other aspects, consult a qualified service person
(such as a qualified constructor).
• The screws needed for attachment are not supplied. Use screws which are compatible with the strength
and material of the pillar or wall.
• When attaching the Center Unit, the screws must be secured tightly in all three locations. Attaching the
Center Unit to the wall by making only one or two holes for the screws makes for an unstable attachment
and causes a safety hazard as the Center Unit may fall down.
Location of attachment to a wall
• Care is required in selecting a location for attaching the Center Unit to the wall. Injury to personnel, or
damage to the Center Unit, may result if the Center Unit is attached in a location which interferes with
daily activities or a location that the users are liable to knock their bodies or heads against.
• Avoid a location above a bed, sofa, water tank, sink, etc. or in a passage.
Example of attachment (Center Unit)
The procedure below is intended merely to illustrate how the
Center Unit can be attached to a wall and does not make any
guarantees for safety while using the Center Unit on a wall.
Take into account such factors as the material and strength of
the wall, the status of the reinforcing material, and the possible
changes that will take place over time.
• The cords must be connected to the Center Unit before
attaching to a wall. (See page 4.)
1. Select the place where the Center Unit is to be attached.

2. Mount three screws (not supplied) on the wall. (See the diagram below for the details of the size.)
• The supplied paper pattern will assist in determining the
positions of the screws.

Example of attachment (Speakers) (SP-VSDT68V only)
The speakers can be attached to a wall.
Attach a screw (not supplied) on the wall, then hook the speaker onto
the screw.

• Do not place anything on top of the Center Unit. Doing so may cause the Center Unit to fall, causing malfunctioning and/or injury.
• Do not climb onto the Center Unit or hang from it. Doing so may damage the Center Unit and/or cause injury. Special care
must be taken in this respect when there are small children in the home.
• Avoid sandwiching the cords between the Center Unit and wall. This may upset the Center Unit’s balance, causing the Center
Unit to fall.
• Make sure that the cords will not interfere with daily activities and that the users will not trip over them. Do not pull the
connected cords with excessive force.
• Check regularly that none of the screws are loose.
• In the event that the Center Unit has fallen, turn off the power, disconnect its power plug from the power outlet, and contact
your dealer for an inspection and repairs. Continued use of the Center Unit may result in a fire or electric shocks.
• Do not place valuables (breakables) underneath the location where the Center Unit is attached. They will be damaged if the
Center Unit should fall.
• The manufacturer accepts absolutely no liability for any accidents or damage resulting from inadequate assembly or
mounting, insufficient strength of attachment, misuse or abuse, or natural disasters.
Now you can plug the AC power cord into the wall outlet, and your System is at your
command!
Before operating, verify that the display shows the clock. If malfunctions may occur,
re-connect the power cord.
Changing the Display and Control Buttons Settings
You can change the direction of the characters and symbols on the display
and the assignment of the functions to each control button on the Unit.
Change the settings depending on whether the Unit is placed vertically or
horizontally. The factory setting is “V”.

Getting Started
Using the Remote Control
The Remote Control makes it easy to use many of the functions of the System from a distance of up to 7 m away.
The remote sensor at which you need to point the Remote Control differs depending on whether the Unit is placed vertically
or horizontally.

• Make sure that the “DISP.SET” switch on the rear of the Unit is set correctly.
COMPU Play
JVC’s COMPU PLAY feature lets you control the most frequently used System functions with a single touch.
With One Touch Operation you can play a CD, turn on the radio, or listen to an external equipment with a single press of the
play button for that function. One Touch Operation turns the power on for you, then starts the function you have specified. If
the System is not ready (no CD in place), the System still powers on so you can insert a CD.
How One Touch Operation works in each case is explained in the section dealing with that function.
The COMPU PLAY buttons are:

You can use Normal, Random, Program or Repeat play.
Repeat Play can repeat all the tracks or just one of the tracks
on the CD.
Here are the basic things you need to know to play a CD and
locate the different tracks on it.
This unit has been designed to play back the following
CDs:
• CD
• CD-R
• CD-RW
• MP3 discs (MP3 files recorded on a CD-R or
CD-RW)
When playing a CD-R or CD-RW
You can play back finalized CD-R or CD-RW recorded in Music CD format or recorded in MP3 format.
■ You can play back CD-R or CD-RW like CD.
■ Some CD-R or CD-RW may not be played back on
this unit because of their disc characteristics, damage
or stain on them, or if the player lens is dirty.
■ The reflection factor of CD-RW is lower than that of
other CD, possibly causing CD-RW to take longer to
read.
■ When both audio CD format tracks and MP3 files are
recorded on a CD-R or CD-RW, this unit plays back
only one of them which is recognised first.
MP3 Introduction
What is MP3?
MP3 is an abbreviation of Motion Picture Experts Group 1
(or MPEG-1) Audio Layer 3. MP3 is simply a file format
with a data compression ratio of 1:10 (128 kbps*). By using
MP3 format, one CD-R or CD-RW can contain 10 times as
much data volume as a regular CD can.
* Bit rate is the average number of bits that one second of
audio data will consume. The unit used is kbps (1,000
bits per second). To get a better audio quality, choose a
higher bit rate. The most popular bit rate for encoding
(recording) is 128 kbps.
MP3 disc structure
On an MP3 disc, each song (material) is recorded as a file.
Files are grouped into a directory (or folder). Directories
can also include other directories, creating hierarchical
directory layers. (See “How are MP3 files recorded and
played back?” on page 18.)
This unit manages files and directories as “tracks” and
“groups”. This unit can recognise up to 255 tracks and up to
64 groups per disc. The unit ignores those exceeding the
maximum numbers and cannot play them back.
• MP3 discs (either CD-R or CD-RW) require a longer
readout time. (It differs due to the complexity of the group/
file configuration.)
• When making an MP3 disc, select ISO 9660 Level 1 or
Level 2 as the disc format.
• This unit does not support multisession recording.
• This unit can play MP3 files only with the following file
extensions — “.MP3”, “.Mp3”, “.mP3”, and “.mp3”.
• Files other than MP3 are ignored.
• Some MP3 discs may not be played back because of their
disc characteristics or recording conditions.
17
Using the CD Player
How are MP3 files recorded and played
back?
MP3 “tracks (files)” can be recorded in “groups” — folders
or directories, in PC terminology.
During recording, the tracks and groups can be arranged
similarly to the tracks and folders/directories of computer
data. “Root” is similar to the root of a tree. Every track and
group can be linked to the root.
In compliance with ISO 9660, the maximum allowable
depth of nested directories — so called “hierarchy” — is
eight (inclusive of the root).
MP3 group/track configuration:
Hierarchy
Root
1
*
Playback order, track search order, and group search order
of the MP3 tracks recorded on a disc are determined by the
writing (or encoding) application; therefore, playback order
may be different from the one you have intended while recording the groups and the tracks.
2
3
4
The illustration shows an ordinary example of how MP3
tracks are recorded on a CD-R or CD-RW, how they are
played back and how they are searched for on this unit.
• The numbers in circles next to the MP3 tracks ( )
indicate the playback order and search order of the MP3
tracks. Normally this unit plays back MP3 tracks in the
recorded order.
• The numbers inside the groups indicate the playback
order and search order of the groups on an MP3 disc.
Normally this unit plays back MP3 tracks in the groups
in the recorded order.
The groups marked with asterisk (*) will be skipped
since they do not include any MP3 tracks.

Care and Maintenance
Handle your CDs carefully, and they will last a long time.
General Notes
Compact Discs
In general, you will have the best performance by keeping
your CDs and the mechanism clean.
• Store CDs in their cases, and keep them in cabinets or on
shelves.
• Keep the System’s Panel closed when not in use.
• Only CDs bearing these marks
can be used with this System.
However, continued use of irregular shape CDs (heart-shape,
octagonal, etc.) can damage the
System.
• Do not stick a paper tape or a seal
on the reading side or the label
side.
If you do so, the CD may not be
unloaded, or the System can be
damaged.
• Remove the CD from its case by
holding it at the edges while pressing the case’s center hole lightly.
• Do not touch the shiny surface of
the CD, or bend the CD.
Cleaning the Unit
• Stains on the Unit
Should be wiped off with a soft cloth. If the Unit is heavily stained, wipe it with a cloth soaked in water-diluted
neutral detergent and wrung well, then wipe clean with a
dry cloth.
• Since the Unit may deteriorate in quality, become damaged or get its paint peeled off, be careful about the followings.
- DO NOT wipe it with a hard cloth.
- DO NOT wipe it strong.
- DO NOT wipe it with thinner or benzine.
- DO NOT apply any volatile substance such as insecticides to it.
- DO NOT allow any rubber or plastic to remain in contact with it for a long time.
• Put the CD back in its case after
use to prevent warping.
• Be careful not to scratch the surface of the CD when placing it
back in the case.
• Avoid exposure to direct sunlight,
temperature extremes, and moisture.
• A dirty CD may not play correctly. If a CD does become dirty,
wipe it with a soft cloth in a
straight line from center to edge.
CAUTION:
• Do not use any solvent (for example, conventional record cleaner, spray thinner,
benzine, etc.) to clean a CD.
Moisture Condensation
Moisture may condense on the lens inside the System in the
following cases:
• After turning on heating in the room.
• In a damp room.
• If the System is brought directly from a cold to a warm
place.
Should this occur, the System may malfunction. In this
case, leave the System turned on for a few hours until the
moisture evaporates, unplug the AC power cord, and then
plug it in again.
