that the replacement fuse has a rating of 5-ampere
and that it is approved by ASTA or BSI to BS1362.
Check for the ASTA mark
or the BSI mark
on
the body of the fuse.
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 purchased from your
local dealer.

Safety precautions
Placement
Set the unit up on an even surface away from direct sunlight, high
temperatures, high humidity, and excessive vibration. These
conditions can damage the cabinet and other components,
thereby shortening the unit’s service life.
Place it at least 15 cm away from wall surfaces to avoid distortion
and unwanted acoustical effects.
Do not place heavy items on the unit.
Voltage
Do not use high voltage power sources. This can overload the unit
and cause a fire.
Do not use a DC power source. Check the source carefully when
setting the unit up on a ship or other place where DC is used.
CAUTION!
DO NOT INSTALL OR PLACE THIS UNIT IN A BOOKCASE,
BUILT IN CABINET OR IN ANOTHER CONFINED SPACE.
ENSURE THE UNIT IS WELL VENTILATED. ENSURE THAT
CURTAINS AND ANY OTHER MATERIALS DO NOT
OBSTRUCT THE VENTILATION TO PREVENT RISK OF
ELECTRIC SHOCK OR FIRE HAZARD DUE TO
OVERHEATING.
CAUTION
Do not place anything on top of this unit or block the heat
radiation vents in any way. In particular, do not place tape
decks or CD/DVD players on this unit as heat radiated from it
can damage your software.
AC mains lead protection
Ensure the AC mains lead is connected correctly and not
damaged. Poor connection and lead damage can cause fire or
electric shock. Do not pull, bend, or place heavy items on the lead.
Grasp the plug firmly when unplugging the lead. Pulling the AC
mains lead can cause electric shock.
Do not handle the plug with wet hands. This can cause electric
shock.
Foreign matter
Do not let metal objects fall inside the unit. This can cause electric
shock or malfunction.
Do not let liquids get into the unit. This can cause electric shock or
malfunction. If this occurs, immediately disconnect the unit from
the power supply and contact your dealer.
Do not spray insecticides onto or into the unit. They contain
flammable gases which can ignite if sprayed into the unit.
Service
Do not attempt to repair this unit by yourself. If sound is
interrupted, indicators fail to light, smoke appears, or any other
problem that is not covered in these instructions occurs,
disconnect the AC mains lead and contact your dealer or an
authorized service center. Electric shock or damage to the unit
can occur if the unit is repaired, disassembled or reconstructed by
unqualified persons.
Extend operating life by disconnecting the unit from the power
source if it is not to be used for a long time.

For Australia and New Zealand
Two types of wire are most commonly used for connection from
the antenna: 300 Ω parallel feeder wire or 75 Ω coaxial cable.

Subwoofer
The subwoofer can be placed in any position as long as it is at a
reasonable distance from the TV.
Note that some experimentation can yield the smoothest low
frequency performance. Placement near a corner can increase the
apparent output level, but can result in unnatural bass.
Connecting speakers
Other connections are possible depending on your speaker system.
See your speaker system’s operating instructions for details.

If you connect speakers with an impedance

These settings should be done to get the most from the unit’s DSP
reproduction modes (a pages 20 and 21).
In SIZE
Set the type (LARGE or SMALL) and presence (NONE, YES or
NO) of your speakers. Select “LARGE” if the speakers can
produce bass (below around 100 Hz). Select “SMALL” if the
speakers cannot produce bass. Select “NONE” if center and
surround speakers aren’t connected. Select “NO” if a subwoofer
isn’t connected. The sound for those speakers is then produced
through the front speakers.
Enter the distance of front, center surround speakers from the
listening position so the sound from the speakers reaches the
listening position at the same time. The unit calculates the delay
time for the center and surround speakers based on these
distances.

DSP sound modes
This unit’s digital signal processor (DSP) has the following three
modes–STEREO, SURROUND and SFC.
DSP SOUND MODE
A
STEREO mode
Use this mode when you want to listen to stereo sources, whether
they are digital or analogue, or when you want to play Dolby
Digital or DTS sources through two channels. The sounds usually
fed through the other speakers are down-mixed so they are output
through the left and right front speakers. There may be some
change in the overall sound when surround sources are downmixed.
B
SURROUND mode
By selecting this mode while digital input is being used, the unit
automatically determines the kind of digital source being used
(Dolby Digital, Dolby Surround, or DTS), and processes it
accordingly. Select this mode also when you are playing an
analogue source, VCR for example, that has been recorded in
Dolby Surround.

RDS (Radio data system) is a multiplex broadcasting system.
Along with the audio signals of FM broadcasts, text information

make tuning into programs easier. This unit can use the following
types of signals.

The name of the station can be displayed.
¡PTY (Program type):
The type of program can be displayed. This signal can also be
used to search for a type of program (a page 33). See page 35
for more information about the PTY displays.
¡EON (Enhanced other networks):
This signal is used between networked stations to make it
easier for listeners to tune into a type of program (a page 34).
¡RT (Radio text):
This is text transmitted by the station. This unit can show a
maximum of 64 characters by scrolling it across the screen. The
text could be information about the song playing, traffic and
