Locating
≥Use only supplied speakers
Using other speakers can damage the unit and sound quality will be negatively affected.
≥Set the speakers up on an even surface to prevent them from falling. Take proper precautions to prevent the speakers from falling if you
cannot set them up on an even surface.
≥Place the front, center, and surround speakers at approximately the same distance from the seating position. The angles in the diagram are
approximate.
≥Use the speakers with the short cords (SB-FDM3) for the front and center, and the ones with the long cords (SB-RDM3) for the surround
speakers.
Main unit
Note
Keep your speakers at least 10 mm (13/32q) away from the system for
proper ventilation.
Leave 30-mm (13⁄16q) clearance at the rear of the unit.
Center speaker (5) SB-FDM3
≥You can also put this speaker directly under the television.
≥Do not place the center speaker on
the main unit as sound quality will
be affected.
≥Vibration caused by the center
speaker can disrupt the picture
if it is placed directly on the television. Put the center speaker
on a rack or shelf.
Subwoofer (6) SB-WDM3
Place near the television, on the floor or a sturdy shelf so
that it won’t cause vibration.
≥A woofer unit is located on the side of the subwoofer.

RQT6220
These speakers are designed to be used close to a television, but
the picture may be affected with some televisions and setup combinations.
If this occurs, turn the television off for about 30 minutes.
The television’s demagnetizing function should correct the
problem. If it persists, move the speakers further away from the
television.
Caution
≥Use the speakers only with the recommended system. Failure to do so may lead
to damage to the amplifier and/or the
speakers, and may result in the risk of fire.
Consult a qualified service person if damage has occurred or if you experience a
sudden change in performance.
≥Do not attempt to attach these speakers to
walls using methods other than those described in this manual.

Glossary
Bitstream
I/P/B
This is the digital form of multiple channel audio data (e.g., 5.1 channel) before it is decoded into its various channels.
MPEG 2, the video compression standard adopted for use with
DVD-Video, codes frames using these 3 picture types.
I: Intra coded picture (I-picture)
This is the standard picture and is a complete picture in itself.
This means it has the best picture quality and is the best to use
when adjusting the picture.
P: Predictive coded picture (P-picture)
This picture is calculated based on past I or P-pictures.
B: Bidirectionally-predictive coded picture (B-picture)
This picture is calculated by comparing past and future I and
P-pictures so it has the lowest volume of information.
Decoder
A decoder restores the coded audio signals on DVDs to normal. This
is called decoding.
Dolby Digital
This is a method of coding digital signals developed by Dolby Laboratories. Apart from stereo (2-channel) audio, these signals can also
be 5.1-channel audio. A large amount of audio information can be
recorded on one disc using this method.
Dolby Pro Logic
A surround system where a 4-channel audio track is recorded as
2 channels and then is restored to 4 channels for play. The surround
channel is monaural and can reproduce up to 7 kHz.
DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
This surround system is used in many movie theaters around the
world. There is good separation between the channels, so realistic
sound effects are possible.
Dynamic range
Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level of sound
that can be heard above the noise of the equipment and the highest
level of sound before distortion occurs.
Frame still and field still
Frames are the still pictures that go together to make a moving picture. There are about 30 frames shown each second.
One frame is made up of two fields. A regular television shows these
fields one after the other to create frames.
A still is shown when you pause a moving picture. A frame still is
made up of two alternating fields, so the picture may appear blurred,
but overall quality is high.
A field still is not blurred, but it has only half the information of a
frame still so picture quality is lower.
Linear PCM (pulse code modulation)
These are uncompressed digital signals, similar to those found on
CDs.
MP3
A method of compressing audio, MPEG Audio Layer 3 (MP3) allows
audio to be reduced to up to one tenth its original size without overtly
hurting audio quality.
When creating MP3 files to play on this unit
≥Disc formats: ISO9660 level 1 and level 2 (except for extended formats)
≥Files: MP3 files with the suffix “.mp3” or “.MP3”
≥To have this unit play files in a certain order, prefix folder and file
names with numbers in the order you want to play them. This may
not work in all cases.
Not compatible with multi-session recordings
If you record MP3 onto CD-R/CD-RW over a number of sessions,
this unit can play only the recordings made in the first session.
Playback control (PBC)
If a Video CD has playback control, you can select scenes and information with menus.
Disc handling
Reference
Do not use irregularly shaped discs, such as heart-shaped.
(These can damage the unit.)
∫ If the disc is brought from a cold to a warm environment, moisture may form on the disc
Wipe with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth before using the disc.
∫ Handling precautions
∫ How to hold a disc
Do not touch the recorded surface.
≥Do not write on the label side with a ball-point pen or other writing
instrument.
≥Do not use record cleaning sprays, benzine, thinner, static electricity prevention liquids or any other solvent.
≥Do not attach labels or stickers to discs. (Do not use discs with
exposed adhesive from tape or left over peeled-off stickers.)
≥Do not use scratch-proof protectors or covers.
≥Do not use discs printed with label printers available on the market.
∫ Do not place or store discs in the following places
∫ If the surface is dirty
Wipe it with a damp cloth and then wipe dry.

Listening caution
EST. 1924
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you’ve just purchased is only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now it’s time to consider
how you can maximize the fun and excitement your equipment offers. This manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group want you to get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that lets the sound come through
loud and clear without annoying blaring or distortion—and, most importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.
We recommend you to avoid prolonged exposure to excessive noise.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds “normal” can actually be
loud and harmful to your hearing.
Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
≥Start your volume control at a low setting.
≥Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
≥Set the dial and leave it there.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or loss in the future. After all, we want you listening for a lifetime.
