Getting Started
General Precautions
• DO NOT insert any metal object into the unit.
• DO NOT disassemble the unit or remove screws, covers, or
cabinet.
• DO NOT expose the unit to rain or moisture.
Putting Batteries in the Remote Control
Before using the remote control, put two supplied batteries first.
• When using the remote control, aim the remote control directly at
the remote sensor on the unit.
1 On the back of the remote control, remove the
battery cover.
Locations
• Install the unit in a location that is level and protected from
moisture.
• The temperature around the unit must be between –5˚C and 35˚C
(23˚F and 95˚F).
• Make sure there is good ventilation around the unit. Poor
ventilation could cause overheating and damage the unit.
Handling the unit
• DO NOT touch the power cord with wet hands.
• DO NOT pull on the power cord to unplug the cord. When
unplugging the cord, always grasp the plug so as not to damage
the cord.
• Keep the power cord away from the connecting cords and the
antenna. The power cord may cause noise or screen interference. It
is recommended to use a coaxial cable for antenna connection,
since it is well-shielded against interference.
• When a power failure occurs, or when you unplug the power cord,
the preset settings such as preset FM/AM channels and sound
adjustments may be erased in a few days.
2 Insert batteries.
• Make sure to match the polarity: (+) to (+) and (–) to (–).
Checking the Supplied Accessories
Check to be sure you have all of the following supplied accessories.
The number in the parentheses indicates the quantity of the pieces
supplied.
3 Replace the cover.
• Remote Control (1)
• Batteries (2)
• AM Loop Antenna (1)
• FM Antenna (1)
If anything is missing, contact your dealer immediately.
If the range or effectiveness of the remote control decreases, replace
the batteries. Use two R6P(SUM-3)/AA(15F) type dry-cell batteries.
CAUTION:
Follow these precautions to avoid leaking or cracking cells:
• Place batteries in the remote control so they match the polarity:
(+) to (+) and (–) to (–).
• Use the correct type of batteries. Batteries that look similar may
differ in voltage.
• Always replace both batteries at the same time.
• Do not expose batteries to heat or flame.

AM antenna connection
Connect the AM loop antenna supplied to the AM LOOP
terminals.
Turn the loop until you have the best reception.
• If the reception is poor, connect an outdoor single vinylcovered wire (not supplied) to the AM EXT terminal. (Keep the
AM loop antenna connected.)
FM antenna connection
Notes:
Connect the supplied FM antenna to the FM 75 Ω COAXIAL
terminal as temporary measure.
Extend the supplied FM antenna horizontally.
• If the reception is poor, connect an outdoor FM antenna (not
supplied). Before attaching a 75 Ω coaxial cable (with a
standard type connector), disconnect the supplied FM antenna.
• If the AM loop antenna wire is covered with vinyl,
remove the vinyl while twisting it as shown to the
right.
• Make sure the antenna conductors do not touch any
other terminals, connecting cords and power cord.
This could cause poor reception.

Creating Realistic Sound Fields
You can use the following Surround modes to reproduce a realistic
sound field:
■ Dolby Surround
• Dolby Pro Logic II
• Dolby Digital
■ DTS Digital Surround
■ DAP (Digital Acoustic Processor) modes
■ All Channel Stereo
■ Dolby Surround
Dolby Pro Logic II*
Dolby Pro Logic II has a newly developed multichannel playback
format to decode all 2 channel sources—regular stereo source and
Dolby Surround encoded source—into 5.1 channel.
Matrix-based encoding/decoding method for Dolby Pro Logic II
makes no limitation for the cutoff frequency of the rear treble and
enables stereo rear sound compared to conventional Dolby Pro
Logic.
Dolby Pro Logic II enables to reproduce spacious sound from
original sound without adding any new sounds and tonal colorations.
Dolby Pro Logic II has two modes—Movie mode and Music mode:
Pro Logic II Movie (PL II MOVIE)—suitable for reproduction of
DOLBY SURROUND .
Dolby Surround encoded sources bearing the mark
You can enjoy soundfield very close to the one created with discrete
5.1 channel sounds.
Pro Logic II Music (PL II MUSIC)—suitable for reproduction of
any 2 channel stereo music sources. You can enjoy wide and deep
sound by using this mode. For this mode, Panorama control can be
selected, which gives “wraparound” sound effect with side-wall
image.
• When Dolby Pro Logic II is activated,
indicator lights up on the display.
PRO LOGIC II

).
encoded with Dolby Digital (
• To enjoy the software encoded with Dolby Digital, connect the
source component using the digital terminal on the rear of this
receiver. (See page 7.)
D I G I T A L
Dolby Digital 5.1 ch encoding method (so-called discrete
multichannel digital audio format) records and digitally compresses
the left front channel, right front channel, center channel, left rear
channel, right rear channel, and LFE channel signals.
Since each channel is completely independent from the other
channel signals to avoid interference, you can obtain much better
sound quality with much stereo and surround effects.
Note:
Dolby Digital software can be roughly grouped into two categories
—multichannel (up to “5.1” channel) and 2 channel software. To enjoy
surround sounds while playing Dolby Digital 2 ch software, you can
use Dolby Pro Logic II.
■ DTS Digital Surround**
Used to reproduce multichannel sound tracks of the software
encoded with DTS Digital Surround (
).
• To enjoy the software encoded with DTS Digital Surround,
connect the source component using the digital terminal on the
rear of this receiver. (See page 7.)
DTS Digital Surround is another discrete multichannel digital
audio format available on CD, LD, and DVD software.
Compared to Dolby Digital, audio compression ratio is relatively
low. This fact allows DTS Digital Surround format to add breadth
and depth to the reproduced sounds. As a result, DTS Digital
Surround features natural, solid and clear sound.

■ All Channel Stereo
DAP modes have been designed to create important acoustic
surround elements.
This mode can reproduce a larger stereo sound field using all the
connected (and activated) speakers.
The sound heard in a live club, dance club, hall or pavilion consists
of direct sound and indirect sound—early reflections and reflections
from behind. Direct sounds reach the listener directly without any
reflection. On the other hand, indirect sounds are delayed by the
distances of the ceiling and walls (see the diagram below).
These indirect sounds are important elements of the acoustic
surround effects. The DAP mode can reproduce a realistic sound
field by adding these indirect sounds.
All Channel Stereo can be used when the front and rear
speakers are connected to this receiver without respect to the
center speaker connection.
If the center speaker is connected and activated, the same phase of
the front left and right signals are output through the center speaker.
DAP modes can be used when the front and rear speakers are
connected to this receiver (without respect to the center speaker
connection: no sound comes out of the center speaker even if it is
connected).
All Channel Stereo can be used while reproducing 2 channel stereo
software, either analog or digital except Dolby Digital and DTS
Digital Surround.
• When All Channel Stereo is selected, the DSP indicator lights up
on the display.
All Channel Stereo reproduction
The following DAP modes are provided with this receiver:
LIVE CLUB
: Gives the feeling of a live music club with a low
ceiling.
DANCE CLUB : Gives a throbbing bass beat.
HALL
: Gives clear vocal and the feeling of a concert
hall.
PAVILION
: Gives the spacious feeling of a pavilion with a
high ceiling.
These DAP modes can be used to add the acoustic surround effects
while reproducing 2 channel stereo software—either analog or
digital except Dolby Digital and DTS Digital Surround—and can
give you a real “being there” feeling.
• When one of the DAP modes is selected, the DSP indicator lights
up on the display.

COMPU LINK Remote Control System
The COMPU LINK remote control system allows you to operate
JVC’s audio components through the remote sensor on the receiver.
To use this remote control system, you need to connect JVC’s audio
components through the COMPU LINK-4 (SYNCHRO) jacks (see
below) in addition to the connections using cables with RCA pin
plugs (see page 6).
• Make sure that the AC power cords of these components are
unplugged before connection. Plug the AC power cords only after
all connections are completed.
Automatic Power On/Off (Standby): only possible with the
COMPU LINK-3 and COMPU LINK-4
Both the CD player and cassette deck (or CD recorder) turn on and
off (standby) along with the receiver.
When you turn on the receiver, the CD player or cassette deck (or
CD recorder) will turn on automatically, depending on which
component has been previously selected.
When you turn off the receiver, both the CD player and cassette
deck (or CD recorder) will turn off (standby).
Synchronized Recording
Cassette deck
or
CD recorder
Synchronized recording means the cassette deck starts recording as
soon as a CD begins playing.
To use synchronized recording, follow these steps:
COMPU LINK-4

1 Put a tape in the cassette deck and a disc in the
CD player.
CD player
Notes:
• There are four versions of COMPU LINK remote control system.
This receiver is equipped with the fourth version—COMPU LINK-4.
This version is added systematic operations with the CD recorder to
the previous version—COMPU LINK-3.
• If your audio component has two COMPU LINK jacks, you can use
either one. If it has only one COMPU LINK jack, connect it so that it
is the last item in the series of components.
• To operate the cassette deck or CD recorder using the COMPU
LINK remote control system, set the source name correctly.
(See page 8.)
• Refer also to the manuals supplied with your audio components.
This remote control system allows you to use four functions listed
below.
Remote Control through the Remote Sensor on the Receiver
You can control the connected audio components through the remote

selected component begins playing immediately.
In both cases, the previously selected source continues playing
without sound for a few seconds.

Before Installation
General Precautions
• DO NOT insert any metal object into the unit.
• DO NOT disassemble the unit or remove screws, covers, or
cabinet.
• DO NOT expose the unit to rain or moisture.
English
Getting Started
Putting Batteries in the Remote Control
Before using the remote control, put two supplied batteries first.
• When using the remote control, aim the remote control directly at
the remote sensor on the unit.
1 On the back of the remote control, remove the
battery cover.
Locations
• Install the unit in a location that is level and protected from
moisture.
• The temperature around the unit must be between –5˚C and 35˚C
(23˚F and 95˚F).
• Make sure there is good ventilation around the unit. Poor
ventilation could cause overheating and damage the unit.
Handling the unit
• DO NOT touch the power cord with wet hands.
• DO NOT pull on the power cord to unplug the cord. When
unplugging the cord, always grasp the plug so as not to damage
the cord.
• Keep the power cord away from the connecting cords and the
antenna. The power cord may cause noise or screen interference. It
is recommended to use a coaxial cable for antenna connection,
since it is well-shielded against interference.
• When a power failure occurs, or when you unplug the power cord,
the preset settings such as preset FM/AM channels and sound
adjustments may be erased in a few days.
2 Insert batteries.
• Make sure to match the polarity: (+) to (+) and (–) to (–).
Checking the Supplied Accessories
Check to be sure you have all of the following supplied accessories.
The number in the parentheses indicates the quantity of the pieces
supplied.
3 Replace the cover.
• Remote Control (1)
• Batteries (2)
• AM Loop Antenna (1)
• FM Antenna (1)
If anything is missing, contact your dealer immediately.
If the range or effectiveness of the remote control decreases, replace
the batteries. Use two R6P(SUM-3)/AA(15F) type dry-cell batteries.
CAUTION:
Follow these precautions to avoid leaking or cracking cells:
• Place batteries in the remote control so they match the polarity:
(+) to (+) and (–) to (–).
• Use the correct type of batteries. Batteries that look similar may
differ in voltage.
• Always replace both batteries at the same time.
• Do not expose batteries to heat or flame.

terminals.
Turn the loop until you have the best reception.
• If the reception is poor, connect an outdoor single vinylcovered wire (not supplied) to the AM EXT terminal. (Keep the
AM loop antenna connected.)
FM antenna connection
Notes:
Connect the supplied FM antenna to the FM 75 Ω COAXIAL
terminal as temporary measure.
Extend the supplied FM antenna horizontally.
• If the reception is poor, connect an outdoor FM antenna (not
supplied). Before attaching a 75 Ω coaxial cable (with a
standard type connector), disconnect the supplied FM antenna.
• If the AM loop antenna wire is covered with vinyl,
remove the vinyl while twisting it as shown to the
right.
• Make sure the antenna conductors do not touch any
other terminals, connecting cords and power cord.
This could cause poor reception.

Creating Realistic Sound Fields
You can use the following Surround modes to reproduce a realistic
sound field:
■ Dolby Surround
• Dolby Pro Logic II
• Dolby Digital
■ DTS Digital Surround
■ DAP (Digital Acoustic Processor) modes
■ All Channel Stereo
■ Dolby Surround
Dolby Pro Logic II*
Dolby Pro Logic II has a newly developed multichannel playback
format to decode all 2 channel sources—regular stereo source and
Dolby Surround encoded source—into 5.1 channel.
Matrix-based encoding/decoding method for Dolby Pro Logic II
makes no limitation for the cutoff frequency of the rear treble and
enables stereo rear sound compared to conventional Dolby Pro
Logic.
Dolby Pro Logic II enables to reproduce spacious sound from
original sound without adding any new sounds and tonal colorations.
Dolby Pro Logic II has two modes—Movie mode and Music mode:
Pro Logic II Movie (PL II MOVIE)—suitable for reproduction of
DOLBY SURROUND .
Dolby Surround encoded sources bearing the mark
You can enjoy soundfield very close to the one created with discrete
5.1 channel sounds.
Pro Logic II Music (PL II MUSIC)—suitable for reproduction of
any 2 channel stereo music sources. You can enjoy wide and deep
sound by using this mode. For this mode, Panorama control can be
selected, which gives “wraparound” sound effect with side-wall
image.
• When Dolby Pro Logic II is activated,
indicator lights up on the display.
PRO LOGIC II

).
encoded with Dolby Digital (
• To enjoy the software encoded with Dolby Digital, connect the
source component using the digital terminal on the rear of this
receiver. (See page 7.)
D I G I T A L
Dolby Digital 5.1 ch encoding method (so-called discrete
multichannel digital audio format) records and digitally compresses
the left front channel, right front channel, center channel, left rear
channel, right rear channel, and LFE channel signals.
Since each channel is completely independent from the other
channel signals to avoid interference, you can obtain much better
sound quality with much stereo and surround effects.
Note:
Dolby Digital software can be roughly grouped into two categories
—multichannel (up to “5.1” channel) and 2 channel software. To enjoy
surround sounds while playing Dolby Digital 2 ch software, you can
use Dolby Pro Logic II.
■ DTS Digital Surround**
Used to reproduce multichannel sound tracks of the software
encoded with DTS Digital Surround (
).
• To enjoy the software encoded with DTS Digital Surround,
connect the source component using the digital terminal on the
rear of this receiver. (See page 7.)
DTS Digital Surround is another discrete multichannel digital
audio format available on CD, LD, and DVD software.
Compared to Dolby Digital, audio compression ratio is relatively
low. This fact allows DTS Digital Surround format to add breadth
and depth to the reproduced sounds. As a result, DTS Digital
Surround features natural, solid and clear sound.

■ DAP (Digital Acoustic Processor) modes
■ All Channel Stereo
DAP modes have been designed to create important acoustic
surround elements.
This mode can reproduce a larger stereo sound field using all the
connected (and activated) speakers.
The sound heard in a live club, dance club, hall or pavilion consists
of direct sound and indirect sound—early reflections and reflections
from behind. Direct sounds reach the listener directly without any
reflection. On the other hand, indirect sounds are delayed by the
distances of the ceiling and walls (see the diagram below).
These indirect sounds are important elements of the acoustic
surround effects. The DAP mode can reproduce a realistic sound
field by adding these indirect sounds.
All Channel Stereo can be used when the front and rear
speakers are connected to this receiver without respect to the
center speaker connection.
If the center speaker is connected and activated, the same phase of
the front left and right signals are output through the center speaker.
DAP modes can be used when the front and rear speakers are
connected to this receiver (without respect to the center speaker
connection: no sound comes out of the center speaker even if it is
connected).
All Channel Stereo can be used while reproducing 2 channel stereo
software, either analog or digital except Dolby Digital and DTS
Digital Surround.
• When All Channel Stereo is selected, the DSP indicator lights up
on the display.
All Channel Stereo reproduction
The following DAP modes are provided with this receiver:
LIVE CLUB
: Gives the feeling of a live music club with a low
ceiling.
DANCE CLUB : Gives a throbbing bass beat.
HALL
: Gives clear vocal and the feeling of a concert
hall.
PAVILION
: Gives the spacious feeling of a pavilion with a
high ceiling.
These DAP modes can be used to add the acoustic surround effects
while reproducing 2 channel stereo software—either analog or
digital except Dolby Digital and DTS Digital Surround—and can
give you a real “being there” feeling.
• When one of the DAP modes is selected, the DSP indicator lights
up on the display.

COMPU LINK Remote Control System
The COMPU LINK remote control system allows you to operate
JVC’s audio components through the remote sensor on the receiver.
To use this remote control system, you need to connect JVC’s audio
components through the COMPU LINK-4 (SYNCHRO) jacks (see
below) in addition to the connections using cables with RCA pin
plugs (see page 6).
• Make sure that the AC power cords of these components are
unplugged before connection. Plug the AC power cords only after
all connections are completed.
Automatic Power On/Off (Standby): only possible with the
COMPU LINK-3 and COMPU LINK-4
Both the CD player and cassette deck (or CD recorder) turn on and
off (standby) along with the receiver.
When you turn on the receiver, the CD player or cassette deck (or
CD recorder) will turn on automatically, depending on which
component has been previously selected.
When you turn off the receiver, both the CD player and cassette
deck (or CD recorder) will turn off (standby).
Synchronized Recording
Cassette deck
or
CD recorder
Synchronized recording means the cassette deck starts recording as
soon as a CD begins playing.
To use synchronized recording, follow these steps:
COMPU LINK-4
(SYNCHRO)
1 Put a tape in the cassette deck and a disc in the
CD player.
CD player
Notes:
• There are four versions of COMPU LINK remote control system.
This receiver is equipped with the fourth version—COMPU LINK-4.
This version is added systematic operations with the CD recorder to
the previous version—COMPU LINK-3.
• If your audio component has two COMPU LINK jacks, you can use
either one. If it has only one COMPU LINK jack, connect it so that it
is the last item in the series of components.
• To operate the cassette deck or CD recorder using the COMPU
LINK remote control system, set the source name correctly.
(See page 8.)
• Refer also to the manuals supplied with your audio components.
This remote control system allows you to use four functions listed
below.
Remote Control through the Remote Sensor on the Receiver
You can control the connected audio components through the remote
sensor on the receiver using this remote control. Aim the remote
control directly at the remote sensor on the receiver. For details, see
pages 25 to 27.
Automatic Source Selection
When you press the play (3) button on a connected component or
on its own remote control, the receiver automatically turns on and
changes the source to the component. On the other hand, if you
select a new source on the receiver or on the remote control, the
selected component begins playing immediately.
In both cases, the previously selected source continues playing
