CAUTION concerning the Power Cord
Most appliances recommend they be placed upon
a dedicated circuit;
That is, a single outlet circuit which powers only that
appliance and has no additional outlets or branch
circuits. Check the specification page of this owner's
manual to be certain.
Do not overload wall outlets. Overloaded wall outlets,
loose or damaged wall outlets, extension cords,
frayed power cords, or damaged or cracked wire
insulation are dangerous. Any of these conditions
could result in electric shock or fire. Periodically
examine the cord of your appliance, and if its
appearance indicates damage or deterioration, unplug
it, discontinue use of the appliance, and have the cord
replaced with an exact replacement part by an
authorized LG Service Centre.
Protect the power cord from physical or mechanical
abuse, such as being twisted, kinked, pinched, closed
in a door, or walked upon. Pay particular attention to
plugs, wall outlets, and the point where the cord
exits the appliance.
To disconnect power from the mains, pull out the
mains cord plug. When installing the product, ensure
that the plug is easily accessible.

unit, connect the TV/VCR’s audio and video outputs directly to the recording VCR’s audio and video inputs.
See the manuals supplied with your TV and VCR for details.
• Video signals connected to video inputs can only be recorded via video outputs. If your TV/VCR is connected
to a composite video input, the recording VCR must be connected to a composite video output.

Connecting speakers
The unit allows you to use 5.1 channel system.
The ideal surround speaker system for this unit is 5speaker systems, using front left and right speakers, a
center speaker, surround left and right speakers, and
a subwoofer.
For best results we recommend that all front speakers
be of the same type, with identical or similar driver
units. This the action moves from side to side.
Your center channel speaker is very important as over
80 % of the dialog from a typical motion picture
emanates from the center channel. It should possess
similar sonic characteristics to the main speakers.
Bass effects are an important part of home theater.
For optimal enjoyment a subwoofer should be used as
it is optimized for low frequency reproduction.

Front Right
Front left and right speakers
These output the overall sound. Their role in a home
theater is to provide a solid anchor for the sound
image. They should be positioned facing the listener
at about ear level, and equidistant from the TV. Angle
them inward so as to create a triangle, with the
listener at the apex.
Center speaker
This speaker enhances the front left and right
speakers, making sound movements distinct and
providing a full sound image. In movies it’s used
mainly for dialog.
Position it close to your TV (preferably on top) facing
forward at about ear level, or at the same height as
the front left and right speakers.
Surround left and right speakers
These speakers are used for precise sound
positioning and to add realistic ambience.
Position them at the sides of the listener, or slightly
behind, about 2–3 feet (60–100 cm) above ear level.
Ideally they should be equidistant from the listener.
Subwoofer
The subwoofer handles the bass sounds of the LFE
(Low-Frequency Effects) channel.
The volume and quality of the bass output from your
subwoofer will depend on its position, the shape of
your listening room, and your listening position. In
general, a good bass sound can be obtained by
installing the subwoofer as shown left.
Tip
To find the best position for your subwoofer, while
playing a movie or some music with good bass,
experiment by placing your subwoofer at various
positions within the room, and choose the one that
provides the most satisfying results.
Speaker System Connection
For the best surround sound, you should connect 5 speakers and/or subwoofer.
Connect the your front, center, surround speakers, and subwoofer by using the speaker wires.

channel sound will be distributed to the front left and
right speakers to create a phantom center). This setting
controls the front left, right, and center mix, allowing
you to adjust the weight of the center channel sound. It
can be adjusted from 0 to 7 (default is 3).
Neo:6-CG (Center width mode)
The DTS Neo:6 Music listening mode creates 6channel surround sound from 2-channel (stereo)
sources. With this setting, you can specify by how
much the front left and right channel output is
attenuated in order to create the center channel. It can
be adjusted from 0 to 1.0. This setting is unavailable if
no surround speakers are connected.
When set to 0, the front left and right channel output is
attenuated by half (–6dB), giving the impression that
the sound is located centrally. This setting works well
when the listening position is considerably off center.
When set to 1.0, the front left and right channels are
not attenuated, maintaining the original stereo balance.
Note
If you set the surround mode to the Neo:6 CINEMA, ,
you cannot adjust the settings since the Neo:6-CG is
fixed to 1.0.

Mini Glossary for Audio Stream & Surround mode
Dolby Digital
DTS Neo : 6™surround 5.1
Manufactured under license from Dolby Laboratories.
This mode applies conventional 2-channel signals
such as digital PCM or analog stereo signals to the
high precision digital matrix decoder used for DTS-ES
Matrix 6.1 to achieve 5.1-channel surround playback.
DTS Neo : 6 surround includes two modes for
selecting the optimum decoding for the signal source.
“Dolby”, “Pro Logic”, and the Double-D symbol are
trademarks of Dolby Laboratories.
Dolby Digital is the multi- channel digital signal format
developed by Dolby Laboratories. Discs bearing the
DOLBY
D I G I T A L
“
” includes the recording of up to 5.1 channels of
digital signals, which can reproduce much better
sound quality, spatial expansion and dynamic range
characteristics than the previous Dolby Surround
effect.
• DTS Neo : 6 CINEMA
This mode is optimum for playing movies. Decoding
is performed with emphasis on separation
performance to achieve the same atmosphere with
2-channel sources as with 5.1-channel sources.
Dolby Surround Pro Logic
• DTS Neo : 6 MUSIC
This mode is suited mainly for playing music. The
front left and front right signals bypass the decoder
and are played directly so there is no loss of sound
quality, and the effect of the surround signals from
the center, surround left and surround right
channels adds a natural sense of expansion to the
sound field.

Dolby Pro Logic is a specially encoded two channel
surround format which consists of four channels ( front
left, center, front right and surround). Sources bearing
the Dolby Surround Pro Logic provide the theater like surround sound. The surround channel is
monaural, but is played through two surround
speakers.
Dolby Pro Logic II
This mode applies conventional 2- channel signals
such as digital PCM or analog stereo signals as well
as Dolby Surround signals, etc. to surround
processing to offer improvements over conventional
Dolby Pro Logic circuits. Dolby Pro Logic II surround
includes three modes as follows:
•
•
•
Dolby Pro Logic II MOVIE
When enjoying movies, this mode allows you to
further enhance the cinematic quality by adding
processing that emphasizes the sounds of the
action special effects.
Dolby Pro Logic II MUSIC
When listening to music, this mode allows you to
further enhance the sound quality by adding
processing that emphasizes the musical effects.
Dolby Pro Logic II GAME
When listening to game, this mode allows you to
further enhance the sound quality by adding
processing that emphasizes the dynamic effects.
