Caution

≥ This system is to be used only as indicated in these instructions. 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 a wall using methods other than those described in this manual.

Speaker system

≥ Use a screwdriver ( i ) for assembling the speakers.

≥ Do not hold the speakers in one hand to avoid injury, you may drop the speakers when carrying them.

When attaching the speakers to a wall

The wall or pillar on which the speakers are to be attached should be capable of supporting 33 kg per screw. Consultation with a qualified installation specialist is recommended when attaching the speakers to a wall. Improper attachment may result in damage to the wall and speakers, and personal injury.

When placing the speakers in front of the TV

The speakers may block or interfere with the TV’s various sensors (C.A.T.S. (Contrast Automatic Tracking System) sensor, remote control sensor, etc.) and the 3D Eyewear transmitters on a 3D compatible TV.

If the stands are being used

Move the speakers further away from the TV. If the TV still does not function properly, try removing the stands.

If the stands are not used

Move the speakers further away from the TV. If the TV still does not function properly, try placing them beside the TV ( > 8).

≥ Place the active subwoofer within a few meters of the main unit and in a horizontal position with the top panel faced upward.

≥ Do not use the main unit or active subwoofer in a metal cabinet.

Placing the active subwoofer and the speakers too close to the walls and corners can result in excessive bass. Cover walls and windows with thick curtains.

≥ If irregular colouring occurs on your TV, turn the TV off for about 30 minutes. If it persists, move the speakers further away from the TV.

Keep magnetised items away. Magnetised cards, watches, etc., can be damaged if placed too close to the active subwoofer and the speakers.

Additional speaker fall prevention measures

To prevent the speakers from falling, it is recommended, as an additional protection measure, to attach the speakers to the wall or table with a fall prevention cord (hereafter “cord”).

≥ Consultation with a qualified installation specialist concerning the appropriate procedure when attaching to a concrete wall or a surface that may not have strong enough support is recommended ( > 11, 13). Improper attachment may result in damage to the wall and speakers, and personal injury.

Use a cord that is capable of supporting over 10 k g (with a diameter of about 1.5 mm).

Keep the screws out of reach of children to prevent swallowing.

≥ Make sure that the slack of the cord is minimal.

Step 3 Connections

Turn off all equipment before connection and read the appropriate operating instructions.

Do not connect the AC mains lead until all other connections are complete.

HDMI

The HDMI connection supports VIERA Link “HDAVI Control” ( > 25) when used with a compatible Panasonic TV.

Use the High Speed HDMI Cables. It is recommended that you use Panasonic’s HDMI cable.

Recommended part number (High Speed HDMI cable):

RP-CDHS15 (1.5 m), RP-CDHS30 (3.0 m), RP-CDHS50 (5.0 m), etc.

≥ Non-HDMI-compliant cables cannot be utilised.

Connection with the TV

Verify if the TV’s HDMI terminal is labelled “HDMI (ARC)”.

Connection differs depending on the label printed next to the HDMI terminal.

Labelled “HDMI (ARC)”: Connection

[A]

Not Labelled “HDMI (ARC)”: Connection

[B]

What is ARC?

ARC is an abbreviation of Audio Return Channel, also known as HDMI ARC. It refers to one of the HDMI functions. When you connect the main unit to the terminal labelled “HDMI (ARC)”, the optical digital audio cable that is usually required in order to listen to sound from a TV is no longer required, and TV pictures and sound can be enjoyed with a single HDMI cable.

Make the connection.

Multi-channel audio sources as a factory preset.

e.g., Image of 3D sound field

Audio output modes

As a factory preset, Dolby Virtual Speaker and the 3D surround effects will be applied to Multi-channel audio sources, such as those from a Blu-ray Disc TM player or

With this effect you can enjoy a surround sound effect similar to 5.1ch.

Adding to the Dolby Virtual

Speaker effect, Panasonic has applied its own sound field controlling technology to expand the sound field forwards, backwards, upwards, and downwards, providing a sound with depth and force that better matches

3D images.

Sports commentary and dialogs from TV dramas are heard as if the sound is coming from the TV, giving the feeling that the sound and the image are one.

Also, the dialog will stand out from the other sounds during normal volume playback and when the volume is lowered for night time viewing.

Dolby Virtual Speaker and the 3D surround effects can be turned off and on by changing the audio output mode settings.

Linked operations with the TV

(VIERA Link “HDAVI Control

TM

”)

What is VIERA Link “HDAVI

Control”?

VIERA Link “HDAVI Control” is a convenient function that offers linked operations of this unit, and a Panasonic TV (VIERA) under

“HDAVI Control”.

You can use this function by connecting the equipment with an HDMI cable. See the operating instructions for connected equipment for operational details.

Preparation

1

Confirm that the HDMI connection has been made.

( > 19, 20)

2

Set the “HDAVI Control” operations on the connected equipment (e.g., TV).

3

For the optimal “HDAVI Control” operations change the following settings on the connected TV

§ 1

.

Set the default speaker settings to this system.

§ 2

≥ Set the speaker selection settings to this system.

4

Turn on all “HDAVI Control” compatible equipment and select the TV’s input for this system so that the

“HDAVI Control” function works properly.

5

If a device is connected to the HDMI IN terminal, start play to check that the picture is displayed on the TV correctly.

When the connection or settings are changed, repeat this procedure.

§

1 The availability and function of the settings may vary depending on the TV. Refer to the operating instructions for the TV for details.

§

2 If the TV has a default speaker setting within the VIERA

Link setting items, choosing this system as the default speaker will automatically change the speaker selection to this system.

VIERA Link “HDAVI Control”, based on the control functions provided by HDMI which is an industry standard known as

HDMI CEC (Consumer Electronics Control), is a unique function that we have developed and added. As such, its operation with other manufacturers’ equipment that supports HDMI CEC cannot be guaranteed.

≥ This unit supports “HDAVI Control 5” function.

“HDAVI Control 5” is the newest standard (current as of

November, 2011) for Panasonic’s HDAVI Control compatible equipment. This standard is compatible with Panasonic’s conventional HDAVI equipment.

≥ Please refer to individual manuals for other manufacturers’ equipment supporting VIERA Link function.

What you can do with

VIERA Link “HDAVI

Control”

To make sure that the audio is output from this system, select home cinema speaker from the speaker menu of

VIERA Link menu using the TV's remote control to turn this system on. The availability and function of the settings may vary depending on the TV. Refer to the operating instructions for the TV for details.

Speaker control

You can select whether audio output is from this system or the TV speakers by using the TV menu settings.

Home cinema

This system is active.

When this system is in standby mode, changing the TV speakers to this system in the VIERA Link menu will automatically turn this system on and select TV as the source.

You can control the volume setting of this system using the volume or mute button on the TV remote control.

(Power on link).

Power off link

When the TV is turned off, the main unit also turns off automatically. (This function does not work when

Bluetooth

®

is the source.)

Automatic lip-sync function

(for HDAVI Control 3 or later)

Delay between audio and video is automatically adjusted by adding time-lag to the audio output, enabling you to enjoy smooth audio for the picture.

The delay information is automatically set if the TV is compatible to VIERA Link “HDAVI Control 3” or later and the

VIERA Link is set to on.
