If the plug contains a removable fuse cover, you must ensure that it is refitted when the fuse is replaced. If you lose the fuse cover the plug
must not be used until a replacement cover is obtained. A replacement fuse cover can be obtained from your local dealer.
If the fitted moulded plug is unsuitable for your socket outlet, then the fuse shall be removed and the plug cut off and disposed of
safely. There is a danger of severe electrical shock if the cut off plug is inserted into any 13 amp socket.
If a new plug is to be fitted, please observe the wiring code as shown below. If in any doubt, please consult a qualified electrician.
IMPORTANT: The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Blue : Neutral Brown : Live
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in
your plug, proceed as follows ;
The wire which is coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the
letter N or coloured BLACK.
The wire which is coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the
letter L or coloured RED.
How to replace the fuse: Open the fuse compartment with a screwdriver and replace the fuse.

Before mounting
• Pioneer is not responsible for any
accidents or damage that result from
improper installation.

(not supplied)
• The front, center and surround speakers
supplied with this system are magnetically
shielded. However, depending on the
installation location, color distortion may
occur if the speaker is installed extremely
close to the screen of a television set. If this
case happens, turn the power switch of the
television set OFF, and turn it ON after 15
min. to 30 min. If the problem persists,
place the speaker system away from the
television set.
• The subwoofer is not magnetically shielded
and so should not be placed near a TV or
monitor. Magnetic storage media (such as
floppy discs and tape or video cassettes)
should also not be kept close to the
subwoofer.
Español
5 mm
• When installing the center speaker on top
of the TV, be sure to secure it with tape or
some other suitable means. Otherwise, the
speaker may fall from the TV due to
external shocks such as earthquakes,
endangering those nearby or damaging
the speaker.
Nederlands
• If you are unsure of the qualities and
strength of the wall, consult a professional
for advice.
Precautions:
Italiano
Caution
• When using the Standard surround setup,
install the surround speakers slightly
above ear level for optimum effect.
Français
• Mounting screws are not supplied. Use
screws suitable for the wall material and
support the weight of the speaker.
• Install the main front left and right
speakers at an equal distance from the TV.
Deutsch
• Remember that the speaker system is
heavy and that its weight could cause the
screws to work loose, or the wall material to
fail to support it, resulting in the speaker
falling. Make sure that the wall you intend
to mount the speakers on is strong enough
to support them. Do not mount on plywood
or soft surface walls.

Caution
• These speaker terminals carry
HAZARDOUS LIVE voltage. To prevent
the risk of electric shock when connecting
or disconnecting the speaker cables,
disconnect the power cord before touching
any uninsulated parts.
• Do not connect any speakers other than
those supplied to this system.
• Do not connect the supplied speakers to
any amplifier other than the one supplied
with this system. Connection to any other
amplifier may result in malfunction or fire.
• After connecting the plugs, pull lightly on
the cables to make sure that the ends of
the cables are securely connected to the
terminals. Poor connections can create
noise and interruptions on the sound.
• If the cable’s wires happen to be pushed
out of the terminals, allowing the wires to
come into contact with each other, it
places an excessive additional load on the
amp. This may cause the amp to stop
functioning, and may even damage the
amp.
Using your own speaker cables
When connecting the speakers, you can
purchase and use your own speaker cables if
desired, in place of those furnished. In this
case, perform the following procedures to
attach the speaker cable adaptor to your own
cables:1
• While holding down the two buttons on
the adaptor, insert the wire ends of your own
cable into the adaptor.
Separately purchased
speaker cable
• White, Red, Blue, Grey and Purple speaker
cable adaptors are provided as
accessories. Use these to attach your own
cables for the front left/right speakers,
surround left/right speakers and
subwoofer.
• Use the supplied Y- cable for center
speakers connections.
• Confirm the +/– polarities of the two wires
and the corresponding markings on the
adaptor, and be sure to insert the proper
wire core into the proper side.
• After inserting the wire cores, pull gently
on the cable to confirm that the wires do
not slip out.
• Be careful to prevent the cores of the two
wires from touching each other, since a
short circuit will result.
Note
1 Speaker cables can be of sizes between 0.3 sq and 1.0 sq (equivalent to 22 gauge and 17 gauge, respectively).

the low level sounds, while controlling high
level peaks.
Specifies how dual mono encoded Dolby
Digital soundtracks should be played. This
setting can also be used to change the audio
channels for DVD-RW discs recorded in
bilingual audio, and external inputs with

(HDCP) as well as Digital Visual Interface (DVI)
in one specification. HDCP is used to protect
digital content transmitted and received by DVIcompliant displays.
HDMI has the capability to support standard,
enhanced, or high-definition video plus standard to multichannel surround-sound audio.
HDMI features include uncompressed digital
video, a bandwidth of up to 2.2 gigabytes per
second (with HDTV signals), one connector
(instead of several cables and connectors), and
communication between the AV source and

Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is a multichannel digital audio
coding system widely used in cinemas, and in
the home for DVD and digital broadcast
soundtracks. It can deliver up to six discrete
audio channels, comprising five full range
channels and a special LFE (low frequency
effects) channel used mainly for deep,
rumbling sound effects; hence the term “5.1channel” Dolby Digital.
In addition to the format features above, Dolby
Digital decoders offer downmixing for
compatibility with mono, stereo and Dolby Pro
Logic audio from a number of bit rates and
channels. Another feature, called Dialog
Normalization, attenuates programs based on the
average level of dialog in a program relative to its
peak level (also known as Dialnorm) in order to
achieve uniform playback level.
Dolby Pro Logic II and Dolby Surround
Using the innovative “steering logic” circuit,
this system extracts surround sound from
sources as follows:
• Dolby Pro Logic – 4.1 channel sound
(mono surround) from any stereo source

Additional information
With two channel sources, the “.1” subwoofer
channel is generated by bass management in
the receiver.

DTS Digital Surround is a 5.1-channel audio
coding system from DTS Inc. now widely used
for DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, 5.1 music discs,
digital broadcasts, and video games. It can
deliver up to six discrete audio channels,
comprising five full range channels, including
an LFE channel. Higher sound quality is
achieved through the use of a low compression
rate, and high rates of transmittance during
playback.

the player is connected to a Pioneer AV
receiver or amplifier compatible with the
PQLS function via HDMI connection.
• The PQLS function is only activated when
playing a music CD (CD-DA).
• The PQLS function is activated when the
