PRECAUTIONS
Read the Operating Instructions carefully and completely before operating the unit. Be sure to keep the Operating
Instructions for future reference. All warnings and cautions in the Operating Instructions and on the unit should be
strictly followed, as well as the safety suggestions below.
Installation
1 Water and moisture - Do not use this unit near water, such as near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sing, laundry tub,
in a wet basement, swimming pool, or the like.
2 Heat - Do not use this unit near sources of heat, including heating vents, stoves, or other appliances that generate
heat.
It also should not be placed in temperatures less than 5*C (41*F) or greater than 35*C (95*F).
3 Mounting surface - Place the unit on a flat, even surface.
4 Ventilation - The unit should be situated with adequate space around it so that proper heat ventilation is assured.
Allow 10 cm (4 in.) clearance form the rear an the top of the unit and 5 cm (2 in.) from each side.
- Do not place the unit on a bed, rug, or similar surface that may block the ventilation openings.
- Do not install the unit in a bookcase, cabinet, or airtight rack where ventilation may be impeded.
5 Objects and liquid entry - Take care that objects or liquids do not get inside the unit through the ventilation
openings.
6 Carts and stands- When placed or mounted on a stand or cart, the unit should be moved with care. Quick stops,
excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the unit or cart to overturn or fall.
7 Condensation - Moisture may form on the CD pickup lens when:
- the unit is moved from a cold spot to a warm spot
- the heating system has just been turned on
- the unit is used in a very humid room
- the unit is cooled by an air conditioner
When this unit has condensation inside, it may not function normally. Should this occur, leave the unit for a few
hours, then try to operate again.
8 Wall or ceiling mounting - The unit should not be mounted on a wall or ceiling, unless specified in the operating
instructions.
Electric Power
1 Power sources - Connect this unit only to power sources specified in the Operating Instructions, and as marked on
the unit.
2 Polarization - As a safety feature, some units are equipped with polarized AC power plugs which can only be
inserted one way into a power outlet. If it is difficult or impossible to insert the AC power plug into an outlet, turn
the plug over and try again. If it still does not easily insert into the outlet, please call a qualified service technician to
service or replace the outlet. To avoid defeating the safety feature of the polarized plug, do not force it into a power
outlet.
3 AC power cord
- When disconnecting the AC power cord, pull it out by the AC power plug. Do not pull the cord itself.
- Never handle the AC power plug with wet hands, as this could result in fire or shock.
Do not walk on the power cord or pinch it by items placed upon or against it, as these could result in fire or shock.
- Avoid overloading AC power plugs and extension cords beyond their capacity, as this could result in fire or shock.
4 Extension cord - To help prevent electric shock, do not use a polarized AC power plug with an extension cord,
receptacle, or other outlet unless the polarized plug can be completely inserted to prevent exposure of the blades of
the plug.
5 Nonuse periods - Unplug the AC power cord from the AC power plug if the unit will not be used for several
months or more. When the cord is plugged in, a small amount of current continues to flow to the unit, even when the
power is turned off.
PRECAUTIONS (cont.) pg. 2
Outdoor Antenna
1 Power lines- When connecting an outdoor antenna, make sure it is located away from power lines.
2 Outdoor antenna grounding- Be sure the antenna system is properly grounded to provide protection against
unexpected voltage surges or static electricity build-up. Article 810 of the National Electric Code, ANSI/NFPA70,
provides information on proper grounding of the mast, supporting structure, and the lead-in wire to the antenna
discharge unit, as well as the size of the grounding unit, connection to grounding terminals, and requirements for
grounding terminals themselves.
Maintenance
Clean the unit only as recommended in the Operating Instructions.
Damage Requiring Service
Have the units serviced by a qualified service technician if:
- The AC power cord or plug has been damaged
- Objects or liquid have gotten inside the unit
- The unit has been exposed to rain or water
- The unit does not seem to operate normally
- The unit exhibits a marked change in performance
- The unit has been dropped, or the cabinet has been damaged
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SERVICE THE UNIT YOURSELF

DOLBY PRO LOGIC
pg. 23
The DOLBY PRO LOGIC feature with the center and rear speakers (standard) assure full-scale home theater sound.
When playing back laser discs or video software that have been recorded in Dolby Surround, astonishingly realistic
sound surrounds the listener to create a new level of audio/visual entertainment.
Independent control of the five surround channels allows the listener to enjoy the same type of sound reproduction
experienced in movie theaters. Voices are reproduced in the front and center sound field, while ambient sounds like
cars and crowds are reproduced on all sides of the listener for an incredibly lifelike audio/video experience. Please
read the following carefully to "tune" the system's output to match the characteristics of your listening space.
Check the following:
• Before using the DOLBY PRO LOGIC, adjust the proper balance of speaker sound levels.
• Make sure the supplied speakers are properly connected and positioned. (See page 3 and 4)
• Make sure the TV set and video unit are properly connected. (See page 4)
• Make sure the laser disc, video tape, etc., support
ADJUSTING SPEAKER LEVEL
BALANCE
This unit is whumped with a built-in test signal generator called a noise sequencer for easy balance adjustment of all
five channels. The sequencer outputs a noise signal that "travels" from channel to channel, enabling the simple
adjustment of sound level to achieve, at the listening position, the same apparent loudness from each channel.
About the channels
The left and right front speakers create the stereo effect.
The center speaker helps achieve precise sound positioning over a broad sound field.
The rear-mounted surround speakers enhance the "depth" of the sound field.
Use the remote control.
1 Press DOLBY PRO LOGIC to select NORMAL.
"NORMAL" is displayed.
If "PHANTOM" or "3 STEREO" is displayed, press DOLBY PRO LOGIC repeatedly until "NORMAL" is
selected.
2 Press MANUAL SELECT and hold it down for about four seconds until "L" flashes.
A noise signal is sent to each channel in turn in the following sequence.
3 Adjust the sound level of the center and the surround speakers.
When "CEN" or "S-R" or "S-L" is displayed, press
or
to adjust the volume of the center or each
surround speaker to match the level of the front speakers.
To adjust the balance between the left and right front speakers, see page 8. At this time, the DOLBY PRO LOGIC
mode should be canceled by pressing DOLBY PRO LOGIC until "PRO-OFF" is displayed.
4 Press MANUAL SELECT again to stop the noise signal.
NOTE
• If the surround speakers or the center speaker level of the DOLBY PRO LOGIC is changed, that of the
SURROUND system (page 12) and the DOLBY DIGITAL SURROUND (page 30) are also changed.
• While "S-L" or "S-R" is displayed, both surround speakers output the signal noise together. However, only the
sound level of one surround speaker is displayed as "S-L" or "S-R" can be adjusted.
• When the sequencer outputs a noise signal, a clicking might be heard from the speakers due to the characteristics of
the circuit. This is not malfunction.
To change the delay time
The surround speakers reproduce sounds a split second after the front speakers. The delay is initially set to 20 ms
(milliseconds).
To change the standard delay time, press MANUAL SELECT on the remote control repeatedly until "TIME" is
displayed. Then, press
or
on the remote control. Each time one of the buttons is pressed, the delay
time changes as shown below.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Occasional care and maintenance of the unit and the software are needed to optimize the performance of your unit.
To clean the cabinet
Use a soft and dry cloth. If the surfaces are extremely dirty, use a soft cloth lightly moistened with mild detergent
solution. Do not use strong solvents, such as alcohol, benzine or thinner as these could damage the finish of the unit.
