Setting
the VCR output channel
Your TV set receives the video recorder signal like another TV
station. So you will have to select a programme number for the
video recorder.
Take care to select this programme number, whenever you control the video recorder, or watch a recording. Only if you have
selected this programme number, which we call video programme number, you will see the picture from the video recorder
on the screen.
If you connect a monitor or a TV set equipped with audio and
video sockets, this adjustment will not be necessary. Consult the
operating instructions of your TV set.
Connect the video recorder as described in the section on
Connections (see on previous page).

SRS
(Sound Retrieval System)
What is SRS 3D Sound?
STEREO
TV set
System
OR
SRS stands for the Sound Retrieval System. It differs from
stereo and other sound expansion techniques because it is
based on the human hearing system. Our ears are complex
instruments that allow us to hear in three dimensions.
Microphones and traditional stereo playback systems only produce flat, two dimensional sound images which are somewhat
limited compared to "real live sound." SRS compensates for
these limitations by re-establishing the necessary information
that allows us to hear in three dimensions. The results are
incredible and startlingly close to real-life.
SRS is unique because it does not rely on special recording
techniques. It works with any audio signal whether it is mono,
stereo, surround sound or even encoded with a sound enhancement process. Most importantly SRS does not rely on phase shift
or time delay or employ any harmonic distortion to achieve is
sensational effect.
