Quick guide
This section introduces basic connection, setting and playback methods for enjoying the Home Theater.
• Turn off all equipment before making any connections.
• Peripheral equipment sold separately unless otherwise indicated.
• To connect equipment, refer to the appropriate operating instructions.
Step
1
Connect a TV and a DVD recorder/DVD player using HDMI cables (á page 7)
Using HDMI connections, you can easily
enjoy high-quality pictures and sounds.
To make HDMI connections, you need an HDMI terminal on both
your TV and DVD recorder (DVD player).
When one of the two or both equipment lacks an HDMI terminal:
You can connect cables to S video terminals (á page 15).
You can connect cables to component terminals (á page 16).
You can connect cables to video terminals (in the absence of
component or S video terminals) (á page 14).
You install and connect speakers in this step.
Using automatic speaker detection, you can
easily set speakers.
After speakers are set, you can confirm audio output using the test
signal.
You can enjoy DVDs with surround sound.

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.

Step
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 35) or perform steps instructed in “Auto speaker setup using the setup
microphone” (á page 24) when you cannot install speakers the same distance away.
Example: Center speaker (1), front speakers (2), 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.

Front speakers (left, right)
Place on the left and right of the TV at seated ear height so that there is good coherency between the picture and sound.
Center speaker
Place underneath or above the center of the TV. Aim the speaker at the seating area.
When you do not install the center speaker, sound assigned to it is distributed to front speakers and output from them.
Surround speakers (left, right)
Place on the side of or slightly behind the seating area.
When you do not install surround speakers, sound assigned to them is distributed to front speakers and output from them.
Surround back speakers (left, right)
Place behind the seating area, about 1 meter (3 feet) higher than ear level.
When you do not install any surround back speaker, sound assigned to them is distributed to surround speakers or front speakers and
output from them.
Subwoofer
The subwoofer can be placed in any position as long as it is at a reasonable distance from the TV.

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.

Such factors as speaker types, room conditions and speaker placement may cause the unit to set speaker size, lowpass filter frequency and other
items differently for the same type of speakers or produce settings that differ from the actual characteristics of respective speakers.
When sound from speakers seems odd, check the following settings. When you find undesirable settings, correct them manually.
• See “Setting speakers and their sizes”, “Setting distances” and “Setting the lowpass filter” (á page 35).
With the setup microphone, the unit automatically sets the following.
STEP1
STEP2
STEP3
DISTANCE : The unit measures the distance between each speaker and the seating area and corrects the sound delay
in the seating area. The maximum speaker distance for correcting the delay is 45 feet (15 meters).
POLARITY : The unit checks the polarity of each speaker and, when the polarity is wrong, corrects it.
Select “CHECK NO ” in “Setting the unit against automatic polarity adjustment” (á page 36) before starting the auto
speaker setup when you do not want the unit to adjust polarity automatically.
SIZE / FREQUENCY : The unit measures acoustic characteristics of the room including speaker characteristics (size
and lowpass filter settings) and adjusts them.
LEVEL : The unit checks the output level of each speaker and makes adjustment.

ADVANCED DUAL AMP (á page 39)
• The unit takes advantage of unused amps, and runs one speaker with 2
amps when this function is on. ADVANCED DUAL AMP offers you
sounds that are clearer and higher in audio quality than those available
in normal playback. In 2-channel stereo playback, 3 speaker amps drive
front speakers. The operation is called the triple amp mode.
2-channel stereo playback: Front, surround and surround back
speaker amps are used for driving front speakers (triple amp mode).
5.1-channel playback: Front and surround back speaker amps
are used for driving front speakers (dual amp mode).
• When surround speakers are connected wirelessly (á page 21), the
unit uses the wireless system amp for 5.1-channel playback. Under
the condition, front speakers are driven in the triple amp mode.
BI-AMP (á page 39)
• The unit takes advantage of the front speaker and the surround
speaker amps, and drives the speakers’ high-frequency and lowfrequency ranges separately when this function is on.
• ADVANCED DUAL AMP is available with BI-AMP. When combined, the
two functions enhance clarity and audio quality of stereo sounds.
• When you make bi-wire setting (á page 20), both BI-AMP and
ADVANCED DUAL AMP take effect as long as overlap is possible. In
such case, ADVANCED DUAL AMP activates in the dual amp mode.
Select “OFF ” in “Canceling BI-AMP (using the triple amp mode)”

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.
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.
