General Information

CAUTION!
The machine does not contain any
user-serviceable parts. Please leave
all maintenance work to qualified
personnel.
Setup
Finding a suitable location
– Place the set on a flat, hard and stable
surface. Do not place the set on a carpet.
– Do not position the set on top of
other equipment that might heat it up
(e.g., receiver or amplifier).
– Do not put anything under the set (e.g.,
CDs, magazines).
Space for ventilation
– Place the apparatus in a location with
adequate ventilation to prevent internal
heat build up. Allow at least 10 cm (4.5”)
clearance from the rear and the top of
the set and 5cm (2.3”) from the left and
right to prevent overheating.
Avoid high temperatures, moisture,
water and dust
– Apparatus shall not be exposed to
dripping or splashing.
– Do not place any sources of danger on
the apparatus (e.g., liquid filled objects,
lighted candles).
Accessories supplied
– 1 Junction Box with velcro strip pad
– 1 AV subwoofer with 4 rubber feet
– 2 SonoWave speakers system with 2 sets
of wall mounting brackets, screws and
wall plugs
– 1 set of wall mounting bracket, screws
and wall plugs for main DVD system
– 1 remote control with battery inserted
– 1 VGA cable (for connecting between the
AV subwoofer and Junction Box).
– 1 AC power cable for the AV subwoofer
– Quick Use Guide
Cleaning discs
Some problems occur because the disc
inside the player is dirty (frozen picture,
sound disruptions, picture distortions).
To avoid these problems, discs should be
cleaned on a regular basis.
To clean a disc, use a micro fibre cleaning
cloth and wipe the disc from the center
to the edge in a straight line.
CAUTION!
Do not use solvents such as benzene,
thinner, commercially available cleaners,
or anti-static sprays intended for discs.
Since the optical unit (laser) of the DVD
system operates at a higher power than
regular DVD or CD players, cleaning CDs
intended for DVD or CD players may
damage the optical unit (laser). Therefore,
refrain from using a cleaning CD.

Positioning for best effect
The Philips HTS8000S Home Theatre
System, with its proprietary 2-speaker
SonoWave system, is simple to install
compared to other regular home theatre
systems. However, proper system
placement is critical to ensure the most
immersive sound experience.
The placement diagrams shown here are
only guidelines that provide great system
performance, you may find other
placement choices that are more suitable
for your room layout and provide the
sound you enjoy.
Placing the SonoWave speakers
system
When placing the SonoWave speakers
system, ensure that:
– It should be placed at the same height
and at the normal listening ear level for
the best sound performance.
– It should be placed at equal distance from
the TV, the FRONT R at the right hand
side and FRONT L at the left hand side
(as shown below).
FRONT L
TV
FRONT R
Figure A : Example of placement on the
flat surface
Figure B : Example of wall mounting
placement
– It should be faced straight ahead towards
the listening area. Do not place at an
angle as it would reduce the system
performance.
For SonoWave speakers system
setting, see page 40.
Helpful Hints:
– To avoid magnetic interference, do not
position the SonoWave speakers system too
close to your TV.
– Allow adequate ventilation around the AV
subwoofer and DVD system.

higher the recording speed, the better the sound
quality. However, higher bit rates use more space
on a Disc.
