This Compact Disc player is classified as a CLASS 1
LASER product.
Use of controls, adjustments or performance of procedures
other than those specified herein may result in hazardous
radiation exposure.
Ensure that the AC power supply in your house complies with the identification sticker located on the back of your player. Install your player horizontally, on a suitable base (furniture), with enough space around it for ventilation (7.5~10cm). Make sure the ventilation slots are
not covered. Do not stack anything on top of the player. Do not place the player on amplifiers or other equipment which may become hot.
Before moving the player, ensure the Disc Insert Hole is empty. This player is designed for continuous use. Switching off the DVD player to
the stand-by mode does not disconnect the electrical supply. In order to disconnect the player completely from the power supply, remove
the main plug from the wall outlet, especially when left unused for a long period of time.

• This apparatus shall always be connected to a AC outlet with a protective grounding connection.
• To disconnect the apparatus from the mains, the plug must be pulled out from the mains socket, therefore the mains
plug shall be readily operable.
Wiring the Main Power Supply Plug (UK Only)
IMPORTANT NOTICE
The main lead on this equipment is supplied with a moulded plug incorporating a fuse. The value of the fuse is indicated on the pin face of the plug
and if it requires replacing, a fuse approved to BS1362 of the same rating must be used.
Never use the plug with the fuse cover removed. If the cover is detachable and a replacement is required, it must be of the same colour as the fuse
fitted in the plug. Replacement covers are available from your dealer.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for the power points in your house or the cable is not long enough to reach a power point, you should obtain
a suitable safety approved extension lead or consult your dealer for assistance.
However, if there is no alternative to cutting off the plug, remove the fuse and then safely dispose of the plug. Do not connect the plug to
a main socket as there is a risk of shock hazard from the bared flexible cord.
Never attempt to insert bare wires directly into a main socket. A plug and fuse must be used at all times.
During thunderstorms, disconnect the AC main plug from
the wall outlet.
Voltage peaks due to lightning could damage the unit.
The Mains plug is used as a disconnect device and shall
stay readily operable at any time.
Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight or other heat sources.
This could lead to overheating and malfunction of the unit.
IMPORTANT
The wires in the main lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:– BLUE = NEUTRAL
BROWN = LIVE
As these colours may not correspond to the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:–
The wire coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter N or coloured BLUE or BLACK.
The wire coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter L or coloured BROWN or RED.
WARNING : DO NOT CONNECT EITHER WIRE TO THE EARTH TERMINAL WHICH IS MARKED WITH THE
LETTER E OR BY THE EARTH SYMBOL
, OR COLOURED GREEN OR GREEN AND YELLOW.

Selecting the Listening Position
The listening position should be located about 2.5 to 3 times the

Example : For 32" TVs 2~2.4m (6~8feet)
For 55" TVs 3.5~4m (11~13feet)

• Place these speakers behind your listening position.
• If there isn't enough room, place these speakers so they face

Insert the black wire into the black terminal (–) and the red
wire into the red (+) terminal, and then release the tab.
■
Make sure the colors of the speaker terminals match the colors of the
connecting plugs.
Unlike the front and center speakers, the rear speakers are
* used
to handle mainly sound effects and sound will not
come from them all the time.
Center Speaker C
• It is best to install it at the same height as the front speakers.
• You can also install it directly over or under the TV.
Subwoofer SW
• The position of the subwoofer is not so critical.
• Do not let children play with or near the speakers. They could get hurt if a speaker falls.
• When connecting the speaker wires to the speakers, make sure that the polarity (+/–) is correct.
• Keep the subwoofer speaker out of reach of children so as to prevent children from inserting their hands or alien
substances into the duct (hole) of the subwoofer speaker.
• Do not hang the subwoofer on the wall through the duct (hole).
Place it anywhere you like.
• If you place a speaker near your TV set, screen color may be distorted because of the magnetic field generated
by the speaker. If this occurs, place the speaker away from your TV set.

The product might be damaged or the card may not be removed easily.
• Do not insert the TX card upside down or in the reverse direction.
• Insert the TX card when the DVD Player is turned off.
Inserting the card when it is turned on may cause a problem.
• If the TX Card is inserted, sound is not output from the Rear Speaker
connectors on the main unit.

• When the wireless receiving module setting is complete, no sound is output from the Rear Speaker Output
Connectors on the back of the main unit.
• The wireless receiving antenna is built into the wireless receiver module. Keep the unit away from water and
moisture.
• For optimal listening performance, make sure that the area around the wireless receiver module location is clear of
any obstructions.
• Sound will be heard from the wireless rear speakers in DVD 5.1-CH or Dolby Pro Logic II mode only.
• In 2-CH mode, no sound will be heard from the wireless rear speakers.
• Place the wireless receiver module at the rear of the listening position. If the wireless receiver module is too close
to the main unit, some sound interruption may be heard due to interference.
• If you use a device such as a microwave oven, wireless LAN Card, Bluetooth equipment, or any other device that
uses the same frequency (2.4GHz) near the system, some sound interruption may be heard due to interference.
• The transmission distance of a radio wave is about 10m, but may vary depending on your operating environment.
If a steel-concrete wall or metallic wall is between the main unit and the wireless receiver module, the system may
not operate at all, because the radio wave cannot penetrate metal.
