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

1Water and moisture — Do not use this unit near water, such as near a bathtub, washbowl, swimming pool, or the like.

2Heat — Do not use this unit near heat sources, 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 higher than 35°C (95°F).

3Mounting surface — Place the unit on a flat, even surface.

4Ventilation — The unit should be situated with adequate space around it so that proper heat ventilation is assured. Allow 10 cm (4 in.) clearance from the rear and 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.

5Objects and liquid entry — Take care that objects or liquids do not get inside the unit through the ventilation openings.

6Carts 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.

7Wall or ceiling mounting — The unit should not be mounted on a wall or ceiling, unless specified in the Operating Instructions.

Electric Power

1Power sources — Connect this unit only to power sources specified in the Operating Instructions, and as marked on the unit.

2Polarization — 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 is not still inserted easily 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.

3AC 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.

-Power cords should be firmly secured to avoid being severely bent, pinched, or walked upon. Pay particular attention to the cord from the unit to the power socket.

-Avoid overloading AC outlets and extension cords beyond their capacity, as this could result in fire or shock.

4Extension 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.

5When not in use — Unplug the AC power cord from the AC power outlet 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.

Outdoor Antenna

1Power lines — When connecting an outdoor antenna, make sure it is located away from power lines.

2Outdoor antenna grounding — Be sure the antenna system is properly grounded to provide protection against unexpected voltage surges or static electricitybuild-up.Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA70, provides information on proper grounding of the mast, supporting structure, and thelead-inwire to the antenna discharge unit, as well as the size of the grounding unit, connection to grounding terminals, and requirements for grounding terminals themselves.

PREPARATIONS

CONNECTIONS

Before connecting the AC cord

The rated voltage of your unit shown on the rear panel is 120 V AC. Check that the rated voltage matches your local voltage.

IMPORTANT

Connect the speakers, antennas, and all other external equipment first. Then connect the AC cord at the end.

*1 Be sure to connect the VIDEO OUT terminal of a DVD player directly to a TV set, not through this unit. Otherwise, the picture noise may appear when playing copy protected DVDs.

*2 When connecting a monaural video, use astereo-monoconnecting cord (not supplied).

CONNECTING SPEAKERS1

Speaker terminals

Connect front speakers (system A and/or B) and sub woofer to the corresponding speaker terminals on the unit:

-the front speaker cords to the SPEAKERS terminals

-for more powerful bass, the sub woofer (with a built-inamplifier) cord to the SUB WOOFER3 jack

Speaker impedance

For all speakers, use speakers of 8 ohms or more.

Connecting + to +, – to – terminals

To get the proper sound effect, the speaker terminals on the unit and the speaker should be connected with proper polarity; the + terminal on the unit should be connected to the + terminal on the speaker (and – to –).

NOTE

The sub woofer sound will be output only when the speaker system A (the front speakers connected to the SPEAKERS A terminals) is selected.

Be sure to connect the speaker cords correctly as shown in the illustration on the right column. Improper connections can cause short circuits in the SPEAKERS terminals.

Do not leave objects generating magnetism near the speakers.

Lift up the terminal flap, insert the speaker cord lead into the terminal slot, then close the flap. Check that the cord is connected securely.

FM antenna

AM antenna

To stand the AM loop antenna on a surface

Fix the claw to the slot as shown in the illustration.

To position the antennas

FM feeder antenna:

Extend this antenna horizontally in a T shape and fix its ends to the wall.

AM loop antenna:

Position for the best reception.

NOTE

Do not bring the FM antenna near metal objects or curtain rails.

CONNECTING AN OUTDOOR ANTENNA

For better FM reception, use of an outdoor antenna is recommended. Connect the outdoor antenna to the FM 75 Ω terminals.

ABOUT THE REMOTE CONTROL

Inserting batteries

Detach the battery cover on the rear of the remote control and insert two R6 (size AA) batteries.

When to replace the batteries

The maximum operational distance between the remote control and the sensor on the unit should be approximately 5 meters (16 feet). When this distance decreases, replace the batteries with new ones.
