5 minute guide

Introduction to home theater

Home theater refers to the use of multiple audio tracks to create a surround sound effect, making you feel like you're in the middle of the action or concert. The surround sound you get from a home theater system depends not only on your speaker setup, but also on the source and the sound settings of the receiver.

This receiver will automatically decode multichannel Dolby Digital, DTS, or Dolby Surround sources according to your speaker setup. In most cases, you won’t have to make changes for realistic surround sound, but other possibilities (like listening to a CD with multichannel surround sound) are explained in

Listening to your system on page 22.

Listening to Surround Sound

This receiver was designed with the easiest possible setup in mind, so with the following quick setup guide, you should have your system hooked up for surround sound in no time at all. In most cases, you can simply leave the receiver in the default settings.

Be sure to complete all connections before connecting to an AC power source.

1 Connect your TV and DVD player.

See Connecting a TV and DVD playeron page 9 to do this. For surround sound, you’ll want to hook up using a digital connection from the DVD player to the receiver.

2 Connect your speakers and place them for optimal surround sound.

See Connecting the speakerson page 14.

Where you place the speakers will have a big effect on the sound. Place your speakers as shown below for the best surround sound effect. Also see Hints on speaker placement on page 15 for more on this.

3Plug in and switch on the receiver, followed by your DVD player, subwoofer and TV.

Make sure you’ve set the video input on your TV to this receiver. Check the manual that came with the TV if you don’t know how to do this.

4Press QUICK SETUP on the front panel to specify your speaker setup, room size and listening position.

Use the MULTI JOG dial to select andENTER to confirm your selection. SeeUsing the Quick Setup below for more on this.

5Play a DVD, and adjust the volume.

Make sure that DVD is showing in the receiver’s display, indicating that the DVD input is selected. If it isn’t, pressDVD on the remote to set the receiver to the DVD input.

There are several other sound options you can select. See Listening to your system on page 22

for more on this.1See alsoThe System Setup menu on page 28 for more setup options.

Note

1 Depending on your DVD player or source discs, you may only get digital 2 channel stereo and analog sound. In this case, the listening mode must be set to STANDARD (it should already beset—seeListening in surround sound on page 22 if you need to do this) if you want multichannel surround sound.

Chapter 3:

Connecting up

Making cable connections

Make sure not to bend the cables over the top of this unit (as shown in the illustration). If this happens, the magnetic field produced by the transformers in this unit may cause a humming noise from the speakers.

Important

Before making or changing any connections, switch off the power and disconnect the power cord from the AC outlet.

Digital audio cables

Commercially available coaxial digital audio cables or optical cables should be used to

connect digital components to this receiver.1

Coaxial digital audio cable

Optical cable

Video cables

Standard RCA video cables

These cables are the most common type of video connection and should be used to connect to the composite video terminals. They have yellow plugs to distinguish them from cables for audio.

Before unplugging the power cord, switch the power into standby.

Analog audio cables

Use stereo RCA phono cables to connect analog audio components. These cables are typically red and white, and you should connect the red plugs to R (right) terminals and white plugs to L (left) terminals.

Standard RCA video cable

Component video cables

Use component video cables to get the best possible color reproduction of your video source. The color signal of the TV is divided into the luminance (Y) signal and the color (PB andPR) signals and then output. In this way, interference between the signals is avoided.

Analog audio cables

Component video cables

Note

1• When connecting optical cables, be careful when inserting the plug not to damage the shutter protecting the optical socket.

When storing optical cable, coil loosely. The cable may be damaged if bent around sharp corners.

You can also use a standard RCA video cable for coaxial digital connections.

Connecting up

Connecting a TV and DVD player

This page shows you how to connect your DVD player and TV to the receiver.

1 Connect a coaxial digital audio output on your DVD player to the DIGITAL COAX 1 (DVD/LD) input on this receiver.

Use a coaxial digital audio cable for the connection.1

2 Connect the composite video output and

the stereo analog audio outputs2 on your DVD player to the DVD/LD inputs on this receiver.

Use a standard RCA video cable3 and a stereo RCA phono cable for the connection.

If your DVD player has multichannel analog outputs, see Connecting the multichannel analog outputs below for how to connect it.

3Connect the analog audio outputs from your TV to the TV/SAT inputs on this receiver.

This will allow you to play the sound from the TV's built-intuner. Use a stereo RCA phono cable to do this.

If your TV has a built-indigital decoder, you can also connect an optical digital audio output from your TV to theDIGITAL OPT 1 (CD) input on this receiver. Use an optical cable for the connection.4

4Connect the MONITOR OUT video jack on this receiver to a video input on your TV.

Use a standard RCA video cable to connect to

the composite video jack.5

Note

1 If your DVD player only has an optical digital output, you can connect it to the optical input on this receiver using an optical cable. When you set up the receiver you'll need to tell the receiver which input you connected the player to (see The Input Assign menu on page 30).

2 This connection will allow you to make analog recordings from your DVD player.

3 If your player also has a component video output, you can connect this too. See Using the component video jacks on page 12. 4 In this case, you'll need to tell the receiver which digital input you connected the TV to (seeThe Input Assign menu on page 30). 5 SeeUsing the component video jacks on page 12 to use the component video outputs to connect this receiver to your TV.

Connecting a satellite receiver

or other digital set-topbox

Satellite and cable receivers, and terrestrial digital TV tuners are all examples ofso-calledSTB

‘set-topboxes’.

Note

1 The multichannel input can only be used when DVD 5.1 ch is selected (see page 27).

2 If you've already connected your TV to the TV/SAT inputs, simply choose another input. However, you'll need to remember which input you connected theset-topbox to.

3 See Using the component video jacks on page 12 if yourset-topbox also has a component video output.

4 In this case, you'll need to tell the receiver which digital input you connected the TV to (see The Input Assign menu on page 30).
