Precautions
Handling the unit
Shipping the unit
The original shipping carton and packing materials
come in handy. For maximum protection, re-pack the
unit as it was originally packaged at the factory.
Setting up the unit
The picture and sound of a nearby TV, VCR, or radio

near the unit. Do not leave rubber or plastic products in
contact with the unit for a long period of time. They will
leave marks on the surface.
Cleaning the unit
Cleaning the cabinet
Use a soft, dry cloth. If the surfaces are extremely dirty,

the optical pick-up lens and disc drive parts are dirty or
worn, the picture quality will be poor.
Regular inspection and maintenance are recommended
after every 1,000 hours of use. (This depends on the
operating environment.)
For details, please contact your nearest dealer.
Cleaning discs
Fingerprints and dust on the disc can cause poor picture quality and sound distortion. Before playing, clean
the disc with a clean cloth. Wipe the disc from the center outward.

Be sure to match the speaker cable to the appropriate terminal on the connectors: + to + and – to –. If the cables are reversed,
the sound will be distorted and will lack bass.
When making the sound louder, adjust the sound level carefully to avoid excessive volume output to the speakers.
Only 2-channel stereo (Front Left, Front Right & Subwoofer) is abailable in VCR mode, thus sound might not be heard from
center or rear speakers during VCR playback. (For further details about sound mode, please refer to next page.)
Do not remove the front covers of supplied speakers.
Speaker Positioning
For a normal setup, use 6 speakers (2 front speakers,
1 center speaker, 2 rear speakers and a subwoofer).
If you want to hear excellent bass sound or Dolby Digital

Glossary for Audio Stream & Surround mode
You can enjoy surround sound simply by selecting one
of the pre-programmed sound fields according to the
program you want to listen to.
Each time you press the SOUND MODE button, the
sound mode is changed in the following order;
PRO LOGIC → PLII MOVIE → PLII MUSIC → PLII MATRIX →
3D SURROUND → BYPASS ...
The Dolby Digital surround format lets you enjoy up to 5.1
channels of digital surround sound from a Dolby Digital program source. If you play DVDs with “
” mark, you can enjoy
even better sound quality, greater spatial accuracy, and
improved dynamic range.
Use this mode when playing movie or Dolby Digital 2 channel
which carries the “
” mark. This mode provides the effect
of being in a movie theatre or live concert house-an effect with
an intensity which can only be obtained through DOLBY PRO
LOGIC SURROUND. The effect of the front/back/left/right
movement of the sound image, as well as the sense of fixed
position in the sound image, is much clearer and more dynamic than before.
(II)
Dolby Pro Logic II creates five full-bandwidth output channels
from two-channel sources. This is done using an advanced,
high-purity matrix surround decoder that extracts the spatial
properties of the original recording without adding any new
sounds or tonal colorations.
MOVIE mode:
The Movie mode is for use with stereo television shows and all
programs encoded in Dolby Surround. The result is enhanced
soundfield directionality that approaches the quality of discrete
5.1-channel sound.
MUSIC mode:
The Music mode is for use with any stereo music recordings.
MATRIX mode:
The Matrix mode is the same as the Music mode except that the
directional enhancement logic is turned off. It may be used to
enhance mono signals by making them seem “larger.” The Matrix
mode may also find use in auto systems, where the fluctuations
from poor FM stereo reception can otherwise cause disturbing
surround signals from a logic decoder. The ultimate “cure” for
poor FM stereo reception may be simply to force the audio to
mono.
For DVD Operation
You can change the sound mode of DVD (Dolby Digital, DTS,
PRO LOGIC, etc.) by pressing the AUDIO button repeatedly on
the remote during playback.
Although DVD contents differ from disc to disc, the following
explains the basic operation when this feature is used.
Each time you press AUDIO, the DVD+Hi-Fi VCR sound mode
is changed in the following order;
→
→
→
For your reference
• The DVD/CD Receiver memorizes the last mode
setting for each source individually.
• You can identify the encoding format of program
software by looking at its packaging.
- Dolby Digital discs are labeled with the
logo.
- Dolby Surround encoded programs are labeled with
the
logo.
- DTS Digital Surround discs are marked with DTS.
otes
When you play sound tracks with 96kHz sampling frequency, the output signals will be converted to 48kHz (sampling
frequency).
Sound Mode is not applicable when headphones are used.
3D SURROUND
This unit can produce a 3D Surround effect, using 3D Surround
Sound technology, which simulates multi-channel audio playback from two conventional stereo speakers instead of the five
or more speakers normally required to listen to multi-channel
audio from a home theatre. This feature works with DVD discs
encoded with Dolby Pro Logic and Dolby Digital audio tracks.
BYPASS
Software with multichannel surround audio signals is played according to the way it was recorded.

BROADCAST TYPE (STEREO/SAP/MONO)
Multichannel Television Sound (MTS) carries stereo and/or
Second Audio Program (SAP) bilingual signals. Set this display to
the desired position when both MTS stereo and SAP signals are
received. When only one of the MTS signal is received, the DVD+
Hi-Fi VCR automatically selects the corresponding receiving mode
(Stereo or SAP) regardless of the selected position. For normal
operation, the display should be in the STEREO position. The
DVD+Hi-Fi VCR will then record a STEREO program when available,
and record a mono program IF the program is NOT IN STEREO.
For weak STEREO and/or SAP broadcasts, changing the display to mono may give clearer sound.
BROADCAST TYPE: Choose STEREO, SAP, or MONO with
b/B.

Used during playback [when AUDIO MODE (HI-FI/NORMAL) is
in HI-FI position] for selecting the audio output signals from the
AUDIO OUT terminals (L ch and R ch), and RF.OUT.
This display setting should normally be left in the stereo position, so that when a stereo tape is played, the stereo sound will
be heard through the left and right channels. If a mono tape is

An MP3 file is audio data compressed by using the
MPEG1 audio layer-3 file-coding scheme. We call
files that have the “.mp3” file extension “MP3 files”.
The player can not read an MP3 file that has a file
extension other than “.mp3”.
About WMA (Window Media Audio)
A WMA file is Microsoft audio compression
technology.
WMA(Windows Media Audio) offers double the audio
compression of the MP3 format.
1. Sampling Frequency / only at 44.1kHz (MP3),
32 - 44.1kHz (WMA)
2. Bit rate / within 32 - 320kbps (MP3),
32 - 128kbps (WMA)
3. CD-R physical format should be “ISO 9660”
4. If you record MP3/WMA files using the software
which cannot create a FILE SYSTEM, for example
“Direct-CD” etc., it is impossible to playback
MP3/WMA files. We recommend that you use “EasyCD Creator”, which creates an ISO9660 file system.
5. A single session disc requires MP3/WMA files in the
first track. If there is no MP3/WMA file in the 1st
track, it cannot playback MP3/WMA files. If you wish
to playback MP3/WMA files, format all the data in
the disc or use a new one.
6. File names should be named using 8 letters or less
and must incorporate “.mp3” or “.wma” extension
e.g. “********.MP3” or “********.WMA”.
7. Do not use special letters such as “/ : * ? “ < > ” etc.
8. Total number of files on the disc should be less than
650.
This DVD/CD receiver requires discs/recordings to meet
certain technical standards in order to achieve optimal
playback quality. Pre-recorded DVDs are automatically
set to these standards. There are many different types
of recordable disc formats (including CD-R containing
MP3 or WMA files). That require certain pre-existing
conditions (see above) to insure compatible playback.
