Cables and equipment are sold separately unless
otherwise indicated.
Positioning and connecting the speakers
Simple setup
Step 1: Positioning and connecting the speakers
a. Positioning
Use only the 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.
Tweeter
Main unit
Speaker
Positioning for best effect
How you set up your speakers can affect the bass and the sound
field. Note the following points.
• Place speakers on flat secure bases.
• Placing speakers too close to floors, walls, and corners can result
in excessive bass. Cover walls and windows with thick curtain.
• Keep your speakers at least 10mm (13/32”) away from the system
for proper ventilation.
• To avoid damage to the speakers, do not touch the speaker
cones if you have taken the nets off.
Speaker
Place the speakers so that the tweeters are on the inside.
Caution
• Use the speakers only with the
recommended system. Failure to
do so can damage the amplifier
and speakers, and can cause fire.
Consult a qualified service person
if damage occurs or if a sudden
change in performance is apparent.
• Do not attach these speakers to
walls or ceilings.
The speaker cabinets are simulated wood.
Notes on speaker use
• You can damage your speakers and shorten their useful life if you
play sound at high levels over extended periods.
• Reduce the volume in the following cases to avoid damage.
– When playing distorted sound.
– When the speakers emit strange noise (howling) from a record
player, noise from FM broadcasts, or continuous signals from
an oscillator, test disc, or electronic instrument.
– When adjusting the sound quality.
– When turning the unit on or off.
If irregular coloring occurs on your television
These speakers are designed to be used close to a television,
but the picture may be affected with some televisions and set-up
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.
b. Connecting
Confirm the colors of the tags on
the ends of the cords.
Twist the vinyl tip and pull off.
OR
If the cords do not have vinyl tips, directly
connect them to the terminals.
White
For White tags:
- Connect to grey terminals.
For Blue, Black and Red tags:
- Connect so tag colors match the terminal colors.
Cords with white and blue tags are for high frequency.
Cords with red and black tags are for low frequency.

COMPONENT VIDEO OUT terminals
These terminals can be used for either interlace or progressive
output and provide a purer picture than the S-VIDEO OUT terminal.
Connection using these terminals outputs the color difference
signals (PB/PR) and luminance signal (Y) separately in order to
achieve high fidelity in reproducing colors. The description of the
component video input terminals depends on the television or
monitor (e.g. Y/PB/PR,Y/B-Y/R-Y, Y/CB/CR). Connect to terminals of
the same color.
• After making this connection, change the black level for a better

Tips for making WMA/MP3, CD text and JPEG discs
• Discs must conform to ISO9660 level 1 or 2 (except for extended
formats).
• This unit is compatible with multi-session but if there are a lot of
sessions it takes more time for play to start. Keep the number of
sessions to a minimum to avoid this.
• The order in which the tracks appear in the menus may differ from
the order shown on your computer.
Example:
Naming folders and files
At the time of recording, prefix folder and root
group
file names with 3-digit numbers in the order
you want to play them (this may not work at
001
times).
track
track
Files must have the extension:
track
“.WMA” or “.wma”
group
“.MP3” or “.mp3”
“.JPG”, “.jpg”, “.JPEG” or “.jpeg”

WMA
• Noise may occur when playing WMA files.
• You cannot play WMA files that are copy protected.
MP3
• This unit is not compatible with ID3 tags.
• If you play an MP3 track that includes still picture data, it will take
some time before the music itself starts playing and the elapsed time
will not be displayed during this time. Even after the track starts, the
correct play time will not be displayed.
JPEG
• To view JPEG files on this unit:
—Take them on a digital camera that meets the DCF (Design rule
for Camera File System) standard. Some digital cameras have
functions that are not supported by the DCF standard like automatic
picture rotation which may render a picture unviewable.
—Do not alter the files in any way or save them under a different
name.
• This unit cannot display moving pictures, Motion JPEG and other
such formats, still pictures other than JPEG (i.e. TIFF) or play
associated sound.
CD (CD text only)
When making your own CD text discs
The unit plays the tracks in the order you record them so you do not
have to prefix the titles with numbers.

Glossary
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 multi-channel audio. A large amount of audio information can be
recorded on one disc using this method.
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.
Film and video
DVD-Videos are recorded using either film or video. Usually, film is
recorded at 24 frames per second, the rate movies are filmed at, while
video is recorded at 30 frames per second.
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.
Interlace and progressive output
NTSC, the video signal standard, has 480 interlaced (I) scan lines,
whereas progressive scanning uses twice the number of scan lines. This
is called 480P. The video signals output from this unit’s COMPONENT
VIDEO OUT terminals (Y, P B, P R) allow you to enjoy higher quality
pictures than if the signals were output from the VIDEO OUT terminal or
S-VIDEO OUT terminal.
I/P/B
MPEG 2, the video compression standard adapted for use with DVDVideo, codes frames using these 3 picture types.
I: Intra coded picture
This picture has the best quality and is the best to use when adjusting
the picture.
P: Predictive coded picture
This picture is calculated based on past I or P-pictures.
B: Bidirectionally-predictive coded picture
This picture is calculated by comparing past and future I and
P-pictures so it has the lowest volume of information.

To clean this unit, wipe with a soft, dry cloth.
• Never use alcohol, paint thinner or benzine to clean this unit.
• Before using chemically treated cloth, read the instructions that came
with the cloth carefully.
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 that you avoid prolonged exposure to
excessive noise.
For a cleaner, crisper sound (cassette deck)
Clean the heads regularly to assure good quality playback and recording.
Use a cleaning tape (not included).
When moving the unit

Remove all discs.
Press [POWER 8] on the main unit to turn it off.

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.
RQT7932
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.
