DOLBY PRO LOGIC & DOLBY 3 STEREO
The surround system reproduces video software programs carrying the
mark with similar acoustic effects to movie
theaters.
The DOLBY PRO LOGIC mode controls the audio signals of the Front Left/Right, Center and Rear surround channels using the built-in
directivity enhancer circuit to reproduce the feeling of sound motions very realistically.
The DOLBY 3 STEREO mode can reproduce the motions of sound even when only the front and center speakers are used, by providing proper
acoustic position using the directivity enhancer circuit.
SRS 3D Stereo
The SRS (Sound Retrieval System) is an innovative system simulating a 3-dimensional sound space, which features clearly improved
feelings of depth, sound field extension and acoustic image positioning as well as a widened listening area.
Caution : Read the pages marked 3 carefully to
ensure safe operation.

When an adaptor-type component such as a graphic equalizer is
connected, unplug the shorting pins from the ADAPTOR jacks and
connect the component to these jacks.
÷ When the ADAPTOR jacks are not used, be sure to plug the shorting
pins into jacks. Otherwise, the sound will not be produced.
÷ When the ADAPTOR jacks are used, retain the shorting pins and be
careful not to lose them.
÷ Never plug a shorting pin into other jacks than ADAPTOR jacks.
Otherwise, the unit may be damaged.

DOLBY PRO LOGIC surround mode
In case center speaker is not used
Video, DVD and LD software programs carrying the
mark contain recording of the same Dolby Surround data as
those used in movie theaters.
The DOLBY PRO LOGIC surround mode uses
the Dolby Surround data and brings into
home a similar sound field with full of presence to movie theatres.
To use this mode, connect the surround
(and center) speakers.

If the left and right speakers are installed apart from each other,
the center acoustic image (words, etc.) may vary depending on
the listener’s position. The DOLBY 3 STEREO mode provides an

Recommended speaker installation
It is recommended that the surround speakers are installed straight to the left and right of the listening position or slightly behind,
at a height of about 1 meter higher than the listener’s ears. Each surround speaker should be installed so that the longer sides are

various parameters of each surround mode can be set up
according to the speaker system used as well as to the
environmental of the listening room. The following procedure let you set the parameters of the surround mode (DOLBY

The sound entering the ears include the direct sound coming from the sound source and the indirect sounds reflected from the walls, floor,
ceiling, etc. The indirect sounds are delayed because they travel longer distance required for reflection before they reach the ears. The delay
time is the difference in time between the direct sound and indirect sounds.

The Sound Retrieval System is an epochal system which
produces a three-dimensional sound space by applying the
most suitable processing to the sound signal on the basis of
the human listening mechanism. This permits real depth
and sound location, considered as difficult to realize with
conventional 2-channel stereo (general stereo). A sufficient
effect can be obtained for any source (CD, tape, broadcasts,
etc.).
