Connecting the Antennas
Connecting to audiovisual equipment
Explanation of jacks and cables
The jacks on the back of your receiver (shown
above) and the cables shown below are used to
connect to other components.
The video jacks are OUT jacks, which need to be
connected to IN jacks on the TV or monitor you’re
connecting to (so the video content goes from
the receiver to the screen). The audio jacks are IN
jacks, which need to be connected to OUT jacks
on the component you’re connecting to, so the
sound from the component comes into the
receiver (and out through the speakers).
Video cables
Composite video cable
(included)
The basic Video jack (usually
color-coded yellow) is also
referred to as composite video.
The AM and FM antennas connect to the AM and
FM terminals on the system’s back panel.They
must be hooked up in order to receive clear
reception.
AM Loop Antenna and FM Indoor Antenna
1. Uncoil the AM Antenna wire.
2. Press down on the Antenna tab to open the
terminal.
Note:
Make sure the white wire on the AM loop antenna is
inserted into the AM loop terminal.
S-VIDEO cable (not included)
The S-VIDEO (separate video)
jack provides better picture
quality than composite video (the
VIDEO jack) because the color is kept separate from
the brightness and chroma part of the video signal.
Component video cables
(Pr, Pb, Y) (not included)
The Y, Pb, Pr jacks provide
optimum picture quality by
separating the video signal into
three parts. To ensure maximum
picture quality, use three video-grade
7
cables for the connection. You can also buy
bundled component video cables that are colorcoded
to match the Y, Pb, Pr inputs (green, blue
and red).
control cable to the unit’s rear panel first, then
press the power switch on the subwoofer speaker
to switch it on.
Audio cables (not included)
AUDIO IN L (left) and AUDIO
IN R (right)
These jacks and cables are often
color-coded (red for right audio,
and white for left audio).
When connecting the speakers,
make sure the polarities (“+” speaker wire to
“+” on the receiver. For example, red wire to
red terminal on the receiver) of speaker wires
and terminals match. If the cords are reversed,
the sound will be distorted. Do not ground the
output line, it will damage the speaker.
HDMI connector and cable (not included)
HDMI (High-Definition
Multimedia Interface) provides
optimum digital video and
audio quality. Use an HDMI cable to
connect to a
HDMI-supported monitor to allow transfer of the
digital images of DVD video and the stereo
sound. If your television is a high definition
television, use the DVD player’s HDMI output to
get the highest possible video resolution. Set the
HDMI option in the Video menu to switch on.
(See page 21 and 22) The HDMI indicator will
light up on the front panel.
Note:
Note:
• If your television is a high definition
television, use the DVD player’s
progressive scan output to get the highest
possible video resolution. Set the
Progressive Scan option in the Video menu
to On.
• If one of the devices is not working, check
that all the cables have been inserted
properly into the jacks.
• If your component has only one input for
audio (mono), connect it to the left (white
L/Mono) audio jack on the TV and don’t
connect the right audio part of the cable.
HDMI
Connecting the speakers
Six speakers are provided with the unit (2 front,
1 center, 2 rear, 1 subwoofer). To achieve good
surround effects, all six speakers need to be
connected to the receiver.
One speaker wire is provided with each speaker.
Speaker wires are color-coded to match the
terminals.
When connecting subwoofer, connect subwoofer

Positioning speakers
1. Left, Right (Front Speakers)
Front speakers carry primarily music and sound
effects.
2. Center
In surround mode, the center speaker carries
most of the dialog as well as music and effects. It
should be set between the left and right speakers.
3. Surround (Rear Speakers)
The rear speakers’ overall sound balance should
be as close as possible to the front speakers.
Proper placement is vital to establish an evenly
distributed sound field.
Subwoofer
Alignment
Align the center speaker evenly with (A) or
slightly behind (B) (the left and right speakers),
but not ahead of them.
Angle
Place the left and right speakers to form a 45degree angle with your favorite viewing position
to duplicate the soundtrack mixer’s perspective.
Height
The mid- and high-frequency drivers of the three front
speakers should be as close as possible to
the same height. This often requires placing the center
speaker directly on top (A) or beneath (B) the TV set.
A subwoofer is designed to reproduce powerful
low bass effects (explosions, the rumble of
spaceships, etc.) which dramatically heighten the
action on the screen.
Magnetic shielding
Speakers placed less than two feet from the TV
set must be magnetically shielded in order to
prevent picture distortion. Front, Center and Rear
speakers provided with this unit are magnetically
shielded to protect your TV set.
Note:
Preferred surround placement
Place the subwoofer a foot or more away from TV
when using the Front Surround sound Effect. (FSsE).
(See page 11)
Front speaker placement
Follow the suggestions for speaker placement
below to get the best results.
Location
If possible, place sur- round speakers to either side of the
listening area, not behind it.
Height
If space permits, install surround speakers 2-3 feet above
viewers. This helps to minimize localization effects.
9
Aiming
Front Surround Mode Speaker Placement
Aim surround speakers straight across the room,
not down at viewers, to help create a more open,
spacious surround sound field.
Configuration 1
Follow the suggestion for speaker placement on
page 9 and 10.
Alternative Surround Placement
Configuration 2
If placing the rear speakers (surround speakers) at
the back is not a good choice for you, you can
use the Front Surround sound Effect(FSsE). Follow
the following instruction for setting the speakers
and the setup menu of the Player.
1. Setting the Speakers
Mounting the Speakers
Rear wall
If rear wall mounting is the only choice, aim the
speakers at each other (A), towards the front (B)
or towards the sidewalls (C, D). Experiment with
placement until sounds seem to surround you,
rather than come from behind you.
No adjacent walls
Surround speakers can go on stands facing each
other to approximate sidewall mounting (A), or
to the sides or rear of the viewing area, aimed
upwards; they can go right on the fl oor, or
preferably, a few feet off the fl oor such as on end
tables (B).
10
1. Place the front speaker upside down.
2. Slide in the hinge to the bottom of the front
speaker until the ‘click’ sound is heard.
3. Slide in the rear speaker to the hinge until the
‘click’ sound is heard.
4. Attach the four rubber feet provided to the
top of the front speaker.
Note:
Match the front left and rear left
speakers together and match the front right
and rear right speakers together.
Adjusting the Angle of the Speakers
To achieve the best Front Surround sound Effect
(FSsE), adjust the mounted front left and the rear
left speakers to the left for an angle of 25o - 45o
from the center.
Adjust the mounted front right and rear right
speakers to the right in the same way.
Note:
Place the rear speakers and
subwoofer a foot or more away from TV when
using the Front Surround sound Effect. (FSsE).
Disconnecting the Speakers
1. To unlock the speakers, press and hold the
hinge spring as illustrated below.
2. Slide out the rear speaker from the hinge.
3. Press and hold the two hinge springs.
4. Slide out the hinge from the front speaker.
After adjusting the angle, the speaker should
look like this illustration.
2. Setting the Setup Menu
To optimize the front surround sound effect, you can
control different levels of surround sound according to
your room size. See page 23 section “Front Surround” for
setting the setup menu of the Player.
Test tone/Channel balance
Channel balance
Your receiver is equipped with a test signal
generator for balancing the channels. As the
signal “travels” from channel to channel, adjust
the level controls until each channel plays at the
same loudness level (see page 21).
11
Level adjustment and surround channel
level expectation
Even though you adjust the surround channel to
be as loud as the others on the test signal, on
actual program material the surround channel is
usually much lower than the front. Don’t readjust
the surround level; program producers use
surround for subtle atmospherics and ambience,
and only rarely for special effects.

damp (water only) cloth from the centre to the
edge, avoiding circular motions, which could
cause scratches and interference during playback.
Disc Formats you can play
In order to ensure playback, discs must conform
with DVD, CD, VCD or SVCD standards. This unit
may not play some recordings or files due to
differences in recording formats, software used &
Disc types.
DVD-Video
Digital video discs - 12 cm, single or
double sided, single or dual layer. DVDs
are high density optical discs on which high
quality picture and audio are recorded by means
of digital signals.
DVD-R,DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW
Most DVD-R and DVD+R (one recording only),
DVD-RW and DVD+RW discs (rewritable),
depending on the DVD writer and discs used.
Recordings using DVD-R and DVD-RW discs
must be made in Video DVD mode.
Recordings using DVD+RW discs must be
made in accordance with the specifications for
DVD+RW discs with a 4.7 GB capacity.
VCD - Video Compact Disc
CD on which you can record up to 74 min.
of VHS quality video associated with still
images, audio tracks and interactive
menus.
SVCD - Super Video Compact Disc
Most SVCDs comply with the IEC62107
standard. SVCDs can be used to record up to 70
minutes of digital sound and images in
accordance with MPEG-2 standards for video and
MPEG-1 standards for audio.
Audio CDs
Audio CDs (12 cm).
CD-R, CD-RW
Most CD-R (one recording only) and CD-RW discs
(rewritable).
CD-Rs written during a multisession recording can
be played, provided that the session has ended
before the disc is played (depending on the write
software). However, depending on the
condition of the CD-writer, computer and the disc
used, you may find that not all discs will play.
When playing a CD-R disc, it is normal for the
unit to take up to 20 seconds to recognize
the disc before starting to play.
If the disc is not recognized after a period of 20
seconds, remove the disc, and insert it again.
• Do not use its full capacity.
• CD-Rs should be preferably used instead of CDRWs
(rewritable CDs) as, in certain cases, CDRW
playback may be faulty.
• Use reliable, good-quality CD write software.
• Close all other applications on the computer to
ensure reliable CD-R disc recording.
Mp3 files
CD-R and CD-RW discs containing audio
files in mp3 format. For CD-R mp3 discs, please
follow all the recommendations for CD-R, along
with the comments below:
• Your mp3 files should be ISO 9660 or JOLIET
format. ISO 9660 format and Joliet mp3 files
are compatible with Microsoft’s DOS and
Windows, as well as with Apple Mac.
• Mp3 filenames should not exceed 8 characters,
and should end with the “.mp3” extension.
General name format: Title.mp3. When
composing your title, use 10 characters or less,
no spaces, and avoid the use of special
characters including (. , / , \ , = ,+).
• The total number of files on a disc should be
less than 400.
• Use a decompression transfer rate of at least
128 kB/sec (kilobytes/second) when recording
mp3 files. Sound quality with mp3 files
basically depends on the rate of compression/
decompression you choose. Obtaining audio
CD quality sound requires an analog/digital
sampling rate, that is conversion to mp3
format, of at least 128 kB/sec and up to 160
kB/sec. Choosing higher rates, such as 192
kB/sec or more, only rarely produces even
better sound quality. Conversely, files with
sampling rates below 128 kB/sec will not play
properly.
• Do not record copyright-protected mp3 files.
“Securized” files are encrypted and code
protected to prevent illegal copying.
Important:
The above recommendations do not guarantee
that the DVD player will play mp3 recordings, or
as an assurance of sound quality. Certain
technologies and methods for mp3 file recording
on CD-Rs prevent optimal playback of these files
on your DVD player (i.e. degraded sound quality
and in some cases, inability of the player to read
the file).
25
JPEG files
Technical Specifications:
CD-R and CD-RW with JPEG files. Certain JPEG
files, including progressive JPEG fi les, cannot be
read by this player.
Amplifier Section:
The total number of files and folders on the disc
should be less than 650. Make sure that files have
the “.jpg” extension. Files without the “.jpg”
extension will not be able to be read by the
player - even though the files are shown as JPEG
images on your computer.
WMA files
CD-R and CD-RW discs containing audio
files in WMA (Windows Media Audio) format.
Please follow all the recommendations for CD-R
