Placing the speakers
When you connect this unit to a DVD player playing a disc with the
trademark, you can enjoy realistic, powerful sound by playing the soundtrack through 5
channels; the front left, front right, center, surround left and surround right speakers.
The surround speakers should be installed on the wall. Install them 23-5/8" - 35-7/16"
(60 - 90 cm) above the height of your ears when seated, if possible (see page 13).
Example: When installed on the wall
Surround speaker
The best sound will be achieved by placing each speaker the same distance from the
listener. Arrange the speakers so that the layout is as close as possible to the diagram
shown in this illustration.

Bi-amp system:
Each speaker unit has a built-in subwoofer (low frequency range) which is driven separately from the woofer and tweeter (mid-to-high frequency range). Two independent
amplifiers which have individual frequency characteristics are used.
By amplifying separately the two frequency bands, clearer sound is achieved.

When some of the speakers are at a different distance from the listener, you can select
a speaker delay to make it seem as though the speaker distances are the same.
(Factory-shipped settings: CENTER → 0 ms, SURROUND → 5 ms)

Notes:
If “NO” is selected for any individual speaker’s size setting (page 31), the test tone
will not be heard from that speaker.
Note that the front left and front right speaker levels cannot be adjusted using this
method.
If the subwoofer, equipped with a front speaker, is set to “EXT” in the speaker size
setting procedure, no sound is emitted from it.

DVD discs have a wider dynamic range (sound volume range) than existing VHS videotapes or CD discs. If they are played in home systems, there may be too much
difference between the loud and quiet sounds. Therefore, if the volume is set so that
the quiet sounds can be heard clearly, the loud sounds may be far too loud.
On the other hand, if the volume is set so that the loud sounds are not too loud, you
may not be able to hear the quiet sounds. Three settings are available to control the
dynamic range easily.
MIN: This setting compresses the dynamic range, allowing you to enjoy movies at a lower volume.

This refers to the Dolby Surround sound decoder system which is used for movies.
Using 4 channels, the sound effects, dialog, sound direction, music, etc. are all reproduced more realistically. Dolby Pro Logic Surround makes the location and movement
of sounds much more natural than the original Dolby Surround system. You can enjoy
a realistic, powerful feeling like being at a live performance or as if you were at a movie
theater or in a concert hall. In order to enjoy this effect, you need at least one pair of
surround speakers.

The limited warranty described herein is in addition to whatever implied warranties may be granted to purchasers by law. ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES INCLUDING
THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR USE ARE LIMITED TO THE PERIOD(S) FROM THE DATE OF PURCHASE SET FORTH BELOW.
Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
Neither the sales personnel of the seller nor any other person is authorized to make any warranties other than those described herein, or to extend the duration of any
warranties beyond the time period described herein on behalf of Sharp.
The warranties described herein shall be the sole and exclusive warranties granted by Sharp and shall be the sole and exclusive remedy available to the purchaser.
Correction of defects, in the manner and for the period of time described herein, shall constitute complete fulfillment of all liabilities and responsibilities of Sharp to the

shall Sharp be liable, or in any way responsible, for any damages or defects in the Product which were caused by repairs or attempted repairs performed by anyone
other than an authorized servicer. Nor shall Sharp be liable or in any way responsible for any incidental or consequential economic or property damage. Some states
