Connection
Setup example
Wireless functions
Installation
As this system uses a frequency band of 2.4 GHz, the radio waves may be interrupted by an obstacle. Depending on the surrounding
environment (i.e. radio wave interruption from outside, etc.) or the building structure where this system is used (i.e. wall that easily
reflects radio waves, etc.), sounds may be cut or noise may occur.
Install this system properly paying attention to the following descriptions.
„ Equipment certification
As this system received Technical Conditions compliance certification based on the Radio Law, the wireless station license is not
required. However, if you do the following actions to this system, you may be punished by law.
• Disassemble or refurbish
„ Restrictions for use
• Domestic use only.
• Use this system in the same room.
„ Do not place an obstacle between the main unit and speakers. Do not put things on the main unit.
Radio waves from this system reach maximum range of 15 m in the same room. If there is an obstacle between the main unit and
speakers or the main unit is placed at the height of 50 cm or below from the floor, the radio waves reach smaller range.
„ Keep this system away from equipment that generates radio wave interference.
If the following equipment is located near the system, install this system away from such equipment.
• Bluetooth, OA devices, telephone, etc.: approx. 3 m or more
• Microwave oven, wireless LAN compatible devices: approx. 3 m or more
This system is designed to automatically avoid radio wave interference with such household equipment. If radio wave interference
occurs, the Wireless Link display (➜ page 16) may blink, the sounds from speakers may be interrupted or noise may occur.
These phenomena occur when this system selects a proper frequency. These are not malfunctions.
„ Keep this system away from metal objects that tend to reflect radio waves.
If there are metal objects or furniture in the room where this system is installed, radio waves tend to be reflected. Depending on the
listening-viewing position, sounds may be interrupted or noise may occur. These symptoms may be remedied by slightly moving this
system’s position.
Note that radio waves tend to be reflected also when this system is installed in rooms with a lot of activity.

Glossary
ARC (Audio Return Channel)
This function was added to HDMI Ver.1.4.
This sends digital audio signals from the HDMI input terminal of
the TV, etc. to the HDMI output terminal of this system.
CPPM (Content Protection for Prerecorded Media)
This is the copyright protection technology which prevents file
copy of DVD audio.
Decoder, Decode
Decoder is the device to enable us to hear audio data that is
encoded on DVD, etc., as a normal audio signal. This process
is called Decode.
Deep Colour
This system can reproduce greater colour gradation (4096
steps) when connected to compatible TV and recorder etc.
You can enjoy exceptionally rich, natural-looking colours, with
smooth, detailed gradation and minimal colour banding.
Dolby Digital
Digital sound compression technology developed by Dolby
Laboratories.
Compatible with surround sound as well as 2-channel stereo
sound. With this technology, you can keep massive amount of
audio data in a disc efficiently.
Dolby Pro Logic
This system can process not only Dolby Surround, but also
other 2-channel sources to produce a 5.1-channel sound for
a more realistic sound field. It is also possible to enhance old
movies recorded in stereo with this dynamic 5.1-channel sound.
This system uses Dolby Pro Logic to add surround effects to
stereo sources such as video cassettes and CDs.
Dolby Virtual Speaker
This system allows you to enjoy a surround effect with two
front speakers. This is not merely a “virtual surround” effect, but
rather uses the optimal speaker arrangements and listening
positions for 5.1-channel sound.
Down-sampling
This is the process of resampling by reducing the sampling rate
of a signal that was sampled at a certain rate.
DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
Surround system used in most movie theatres. Separation
works well between channels, resulting in realistic surround
effects.

HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface)
HDMI enables you to transmit digital audio and video signals
using a single cable.
You can also transmit control signals using HDMI connections.
Multi-channel LPCM (Linear PCM)
This is the uncompressed audio signal encoded digitally. Multichannel LPCM signals used for Blu-ray Disc, DVD audio, etc.
offer playback with higher-sound quality.
Up to 7.1-channel LPCM signals can be input to this system.
Optical
Using optical fibre cable for digital signal input/output from DVD,
CD, etc., provides better sound quality for playback or recording
compared to analogue. Only possible with equipment that has
an optical terminal.
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation)
This is one of the methods that enable analogue sounds to be
converted to digital sounds without compression.
This method is used for music CD, etc.
Sampling frequency
Sampling is the process of converting the heights of sound wave
(analogue signal) samples taken at set periods into digits (digital
encoding). Sampling frequency is the number of samples taken
per second, so larger numbers mean faithful reproduction of the
original sound.
Standby through function
When this system and TV and Blu-ray Disc player/DVD recorder
etc. are connected with HDMI cables, image/audio from
Blu-ray Disc player/DVD recorder etc. can still be transmitted to
TV through this system even though the system is turned off.
This is useful when you want to enjoy late night viewing only
with the television’s speakers.
Images recorded with x.v.Colour, Deep Colour or 3D are also
supported.
Surround signal
Audio signal made up with front speakers, center speaker
and surround speakers. For this system, surround signal is
automatically played by Dolby Virtual Speaker.
WHISPER-MODE SURROUND
Even when the sound volume level is low, you can enjoy
dynamic surround playback similarly as during normal playback.
This is convenient when listening at night.
x.v.Colour
This is a name of products compliant with ISO Standard for
wider colour space: “xvYCC”. This system supports x.v.Colour.
1080p
This is one of the digital hi-vision images.
1080 is the number of effective scanning lines that constitute

expressed. Images are less flickered with progressive method
that scans in order from the top. This system supports 1080p.
5.1-channel surround
Monaural and stereo use one channel and two channels
respectively to reproduce sound, but 5.1-channel surround
uses 5 speakers and 1 subwoofer. The 5 channels are: 1 center
speaker, 2 front speakers, and 2 surround speakers at the
side of or to the rear of the sitting position. Sound output of the
subwoofer is much narrower than the other speakers, and so
is considered as 0.1. This is called 5.1-channel surround when
played through all 5.1 channels, and with this system you can
achieve a similar effect with Dolby Virtual Speaker.
7.1-channel virtual surround
When playing back 7.1-channel LPCM signals with this function,
you can enjoy wider sound field effects as if another speaker is
added.
