step 2
Positioning
Getting Started
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 curtains.
[Note]
Keep your speakers at least 10 mm away from the system for proper ventilation.
Setup example
Place the front, center, and surround speakers at approximately the same distance from the seating position. Using “Auto speaker setup” (B 9) is a
convenient way to get the ideal surround sound from your speakers when you are unable to place them. The angles in the diagram are approximate.
Front speakers
Center speaker
60°
Put on a rack or shelf. Vibration caused by
the speaker can disrupt the picture if it is
placed directly on the TV.
Place to the right or left of
the TV, on the floor or a
sturdy shelf so that it will
not cause vibration. Leave
about 30 cm from the TV.
Main unit
Quick Start Guide

If this occurs, turn the TV off for about 30 minutes.
The demagnetising function of the TV should correct the problem. If it
persists, move the speakers further away from the TV.
Caution
≥ The main unit and supplied speakers are to be used only as
indicated in this setup. 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.
Notes on speaker use
≥Use only supplied speakers
Using other speakers can damage the unit, and sound quality will be
negatively affected.
≥ 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 are reverberating due to 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.

Decoder
I/P/B
A decoder restores the coded audio signals on DVDs to normal. This is
called decoding.
MPEG 2, the video compression standard adopted for use with
DVD-Video, 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.
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 sound.
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
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)
This is a system used for compressing/decoding colour still pictures. The
benefit of JPEG is less deterioration in picture quality considering the
degree of compression.
Linear PCM (pulse code modulation)
These are uncompressed digital signals, similar to those found on CDs.
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.
MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3)
Film and video
MPEG4
DVD-Videos are recorded using either film or video. This unit can
determine which type has been used, then uses the most suitable
method of progressive output.
Film: Recorded at 25 frames per second (PAL discs) or 24 frames per
second (NTSC discs). (NTSC discs recorded at 30 frames per
second as well).
Generally appropriate for motion picture films.
Video: Recorded at 25 frames/50 fields per second (PAL discs) or
30 frames/60 fields per second (NTSC discs). Generally
appropriate for TV drama programs or animation.
A compression system for use on mobile devices or a network, that
allows highly efficient recording at a low bit rate.
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 TV 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.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
HDMI is a next-generation digital interface for consumer electronic
products. Unlike conventional connections, it transmits uncompressed
digital video and audio signals on a single cable. This unit supports highdefinition video output (720p, 1080i, 1080p) from the HDMI AV OUT
terminal. To enjoy high-definition video, a high-definition compatible TV is
required.
An audio compression method that compresses audio to approximately
one tenth of its size without any considerable loss of audio quality.
Reference
DivX is a popular media technology created by DivX, Inc. DivX media
files contain highly compressed video with high visual quality that
maintains a relatively small file size.
Playback control (PBC)
If a Video CD has playback control, you can select scenes and
information with menus.
Progressive/Interlaced
The PAL video signal standard has 576 interlaced (i) scan lines, whereas
progressive scanning, called 576p, uses twice the number of scan lines.
For the NTSC standard, these are called 480i and 480p respectively.
Using progressive output, you can enjoy the high-resolution video
recorded on media such as DVD-Video.
Your TV must be compatible to enjoy progressive video.
Sampling frequency
Sampling is the process of converting the heights of sound wave (analog
signal) samples taken at set periods into digits (digital encoding).
Sampling frequency is the number of samples taken per second, so
larger numbers mean more faithful reproduction of the original sound.
WMA
WMA is a compression format developed by Microsoft Corporation. It
achieves the same sound quality as MP3 with a file size that is smaller
than that of MP3.
