< Turn off the power of all the equipment before making connections.

< Read instructions of each component you intend to use with this unit.

< Be sure to insert each plug securely. To prevent hum and noise, do not bundle the connection cords with the power cord or speaker cables.

AM Indoor Loop Antenna

The high-performance AM loop antenna provided with this unit is sufficient for good reception in most areas.

To stand the loop antenna on a surface, fix the claw to the slot in the antenna base.

FM Indoor Antenna

In an area with strong FM signals, the T-type FM antenna provided with this unit is sufficient.

Extend the antenna into a “T” shape and connect the two wires at the base of the “T” to the provided matching transformer, as shown.

After completing connection, plug the transformer into the

“FM 75 Ω ” socket. Extend the top of the “T” and tune the tuner to your favorite station (see page 24). Adjust the antenna in a suitable location like a window frame or wall until the reception is best and then affix the antenna in that position using thumb tacks, push pins or any other suitable means.

How to connect:

Turn the AM terminal’s cap counterclockwise to loosen it, put the loop antenna’s wire under the cap, and turn the cap clockwise to securely connect the wire.

Make sure it is fastened securely by pulling the cord lightly.

Place the antenna on a shelf or hang it on a window frame, etc., in the direction which gives the best reception. Keep all other wires such as power cords, speaker wires or interconnect wires as far away as possible from the antenna.

< If the AM loop antenna provided does not deliver sufficient reception (often due to being too far from the transmitter or in a concrete building, etc.), it may be necessary to use an outdoor AM antenna.

Use either a high quality commercial AM antenna or, if not available, an insulated wire more than 5 m long, strip one end, and connect this to the terminal as shown.

The antenna wire should be strung outdoors or indoors near a window. For better reception, connect the GND terminal to a reliable ground.

FM Outdoor Antenna

In an area where FM signals are weak, it will be necessary to use an 75-ohm unbalanced-type outdoor FM antenna.

Generally, a 3-element antenna will be sufficient; if you live in an area where the FM signals are particularly weak, it may be necessary to use one with 5 or more elements.

< Disconnect the FM indoor antenna when using an outdoor antenna.

Note:

Even when using an outdoor AM antenna, do not disconnect the AM loop antenna.

Caution:

To avoid damaging the speakers with a sudden high-level signal, be sure to switch the power off before connecting the speakers.

Check the impedance of your speakers. Connect speaker with an impedance of 6 ohms or more.

The black speaker terminals are – (negative).

Generally, the + side of the speaker cable is marked to make it distinguishable from the – side of the cable. Connect this marked side to the + terminal and the unmarked side to the black – terminal.

Prepare the speaker cables for connection by stripping off approximately 10 mm or less of the outer insulation.

(Removing too much insulation may lead to a short circuit if the bared wired should come in contact with each other.)

Twist the strands of the stripped wires tightly together:

Caution:

The metal portions of the two separate wires should not touch or an electrical short can occur. Shorted wires can create a fire hazard or induce a failure in your equipment.

How to connect:

1. Turn the terminal cap counterclockwise to loosen it. The speaker terminal caps cannot be fully removed from the base.

2. Insert the wire into the terminal fully and turn the terminal cap clockwise to securely connect it:

Make sure none of the wire insulation is under the terminal, only the bare, stripped wire.

3. Make sure it is fastened firmly by pulling the cable lightly.

Positioning of the Speakers Remote Control Unit

The positioning of speakers differs according to the size and acoustics of the listening room. While actually listening to a program source, try various speaker positions to determine which layout provides the best surround effect.

< Ideally, position all the speakers in a circle, with the same distance from your listening position.

< Place the speakers connected to “L” to your left, and “R” to your right.

Front speakers

Use magnetically shielded speakers, if you are using them near your TV.

Place the front speakers in front of the listening position, to the left and right of a TV.

Front speakers are required for all surround modes.

The provided Remote Control Unit allows the unit to be operated from a distance.

When operating the remote control unit, point it towards the remote sensor on the front panel of the unit.

< Even if the remote control unit is operated within the effective range (5m), remote control operation may be impossible if there are any obstacles between the unit and the remote control.

< If the remote control unit is operated near other products which generate infrared rays, or if other remote control devices using infrared rays are used near the unit, it may operate incorrectly. Conversely, the other products may operate incorrectly.

Battery Installation

Center speaker

Use a magnetically shielded speaker if you are using it near your TV. Place a center speaker between the front speakers, on or below the TV. This speaker stabilizes the sound image.

Rear (Surround) Left and Right speakers

Install these speakers above the level of the listener’s ears, directly to the left and right (or slightly behind) of your listening position.

Subwoofer

Reproduces powerful and deep bass sounds.

Use a sub-woofer with built-in amplifier referred to as a

“powered sub-woofer”. Subwoofers are most effective when placed on or near the floor and in a corner of the room. Refer to the instructions that came with your sub-woofer for placement suggestions.

DTS (DTS Digital Surround)

During playback of a DVD disc recorded in DTS format, the surround mode is set to DTS automatically.

DTS Digital Surround delivers up to 5.1 channels with lower audio compression than Dolby Digital. It provides the clarity and dynamics of the original master soundtrack.

Dolby Pro Logic

Dolby Pro Logic is a matrix decoder that decodes the four channels of surround sound (front left, center, front right and surround) that have been encoded onto the stereo soundtracks of Dolby Surround encoded material such as VHS movies. The surround channel is monaural, but is played through two surround speakers.

Dolby Digital

During playback of a DVD disc recorded in DOLBY DIGITAL format, the surround mode is set to DOLBY DIGITAL automatically.

Dolby Digital delivers up to 5 totally discrete, full frequency audio channels (front left and right, center, and surround left and right), plus 0.1 channel called LFE(Low-Frequency Effects).

LFE delivers a separate non-directional bass signal to the subwoofer for more dynamic deep bass sound effects.

MATRIX

This mode emphasizes the sense of expansion for music source.

THEATER

This mode provides a three dimensional surround effect similar to that of movie theater.

Dolby Pro Logic II

Dolby Pro Logic II is an advanced matrix decoder that gives you 5.1-channel surround sound (front left, center, front right, surround left and surround right) from any stereo program material, as well as Dolby Surround encoded material.

Compared with Pro Logic’s monaural, limited-bandwidth surround channel, Pro Logic II can provide two full-range surround channels.

< DOLBY PRO LOGIC II will not work on monaural source.

DOLBY PRO LOGIC II MOVIE:

This mode is optimized for movies or Dolby Surround encoded materials. This mode is also appropriate for use with video games.

DOLBY PRO LOGIC II MUSIC:

The Music mode creates a rich and enveloping surround ambience from stereo sources such as music CDs.

DOLBY PRO LOGIC II MATRIX:

You might try this mode when you cannot get pleasing surround effect in other modes.

DOLBY PRO LOGIC II CUSTOM:

Basically the same as the Music mode, but more parameters are available for your customizing.

HALL

This mode is suitable for orchestral music such as classical music or opera.

STADIUM

This mode provides the expansive sound field to achieve the true stadium effect when watching baseball or soccer games.

CHURCH

This mode provides reverberations as if you are in a stonebuilt church.

21
