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.

IMPORTANT
The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with
the following code:
Blue: Neutral, Brown: Live.
As these colours 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 or Blue.
The wire which is coloured Brown must be connected to the terminal
which is marked with the letter L or coloured Brown or Red.

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.
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.
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.

HDMI connection
The HDMI input terminal on the unit’s rear is made to specifications that presume connection of a DVD recorder/DVD player.
When other equipment is connected, sounds may not come out of the unit, or pictures shown on the equipment (TV) connected to
the HDMI output terminal may be disrupted.
In such cases, see page 19 and make connections other than HDMI.
You can hear DVD sounds from speakers on the TV when you turn off the unit connected in the way shown above (standby
through function). This convenient function enables you to enjoy DVDs late at night.
Note
HDMI stands for High-Definition Multimedia Interface.
• The HDMI cable enables you to transmit digital audio and video signals using a single cable. You can also transmit control signals
using HDMI connections.
• The unit complies with CPPM∗1. It can digitally transmit surround sound in DVD-Audio sources.
∗1 Content Protection for Prerecorded Media (CPPM): This copyright protection technology prevents copying of DVD-Audio files.
• We recommend using Panasonic cables 5.0 meters long or shorter for enjoying 1125p∗2 (1080p) pictures. They prevent picture
degradation.
∗2 1125p (1080p): a progressive (non-interlace) scanning system that sends 1,125 scan lines every 1/60 second.
• The audio signal transmitted through HDMI takes priority when you use both HDMI and digital terminals (á pages 14 to 17) for
connection.

2 Connect speakers
The ideal placement is to set each speaker (excluding the subwoofer) the same distance away from the listening-viewing position.
Measure the actual distance from each of the connected speakers to the listening-viewing position and perform steps
instructed in “Setting distances” (á page 33) or perform steps instructed in “Auto speaker setup using the setup
microphone” (á page 22) when you cannot install speakers the same distance away.
Example: Front speakers (2), center speaker (1), surround speakers (2), surround back speaker(s)
(1 or 2) and subwoofer
This is a placement suited for playing 6.1-channel sources
(Dolby Digital Surround EX and DTS-ES materials).
This placement offers 7.1/6.1-channel playback of 2-channel
and 5.1-channel sources with the aid of Dolby Pro Logic
,
NEO:6, and SFC technology.

To connect bi-wire speakers
Bi-wire speakers have separate connection terminals for high frequency and low frequency signals.
• Bi-wiring prevents high frequency and low frequency signals from interfering with each other. It offers playback in high audio quality.
• HF and LF stand for high frequency and low frequency, respectively.
• Make sure to select “YES ” in “Making bi-wire setting” (below) when you connect the unit to bi-wire speakers. The speakers do not
produce adequate sounds unless you make this setting.

Auto speaker setup using the setup microphone
Using the supplied setup microphone, you can measure such items as distance from the seating area, polarity and size
and make adjustment for connected speakers.
Keep quiet during the auto speaker setup. Conversational voice, air-conditioning noise and small sounds made
by winds may cause an error or produce an incorrect setting. Speakers output loud test signals during the auto
speaker setup. Make sure to keep little children out of the room.
• Mute the TV volume before starting the auto speaker setup.
• When the subwoofer is connected, make sure it is turned on. (There are subwoofer models that turn off automatically.)
Set the subwoofer volume to the normal listening level.
• Select “Yes ” in “Making bi-wire setting” (á page 20) when you connect the unit to bi-wire speakers.
