ˆ Preparation

CONNECTING COMPONENTS

You must connect a TV to the receiver in order to use the receiver’s DVD player. You can connect other audio and audio/visual components to the receiver in order to use the Home Theater Audio System’s surround sound capabilities.

Connecting a TV

Use audio/video cords (not supplied) to connect a TV to the receiver. Connect red plugs to the red AUDIO jacks and white plugs to the whiteAUDIO jacks.

If your TV has an S-Videojack, use anS-Videocable to connect your TV to the receiver’sS-VIDEO OUT. If your TV does not have anS-Vid-eo jack, use audio/video cord to connect your TV to the receiver’s

MONITOR OUT.

Connecting a Cassette Deck

Use audio/video cords (not supplied) to connect a cassette deck to the receiver. Connect red plugs to the red AUDIO jacks and white plugs to the whiteAUDIO jacks. Make sure you connect the VCR to both theTAPE IN andTAPE OUT sets of jacks.

Note: If the cassette deck is placed too close to the receiver, noise might occur during cassette playback. If this happens, move the cassette deck farther away from the receiver.

Connecting a VCR

Use audio/video cords (not supplied) to connect a VCR to the receiver. Connect red plugs to the red AUDIO jacks and white plugs to the whiteAUDIO jacks.

Connect yellow plugs to the yellow VIDEO jacks.

Note: Make sure you connect the VCR to both theIN andOUT sets of jacks.

Connecting a Satellite Receiver or Cable Box

Use audio/video cords (not supplied) to connect a satellite receiver or cable box to the receiver. Connect red plugs to the red AUDIO jacks and white plugs to the whiteAUDIO jacks.

Note: Your cable box or satellite receiver must use audio/video cords or Toslink optical cable to connect to the receiver. If your equipment only uses coaxial cable, you cannot connect it to the receiver.

If your satellite receiver or cable box has digital output, use an optical cable to connect the satellite receiver to the home theater receiver’s SAT IN optical jack. If your satellite receiver or cable box does not have digital output, use analog cable to connect it to the home theater receiver’sSAT IN video jack.

You can also connect a satellite receiver, MD or DAT recorder, CD player, or anything else with digital output to the receiver’s SAT IN optical jack. Use Toslink optical cable to connect the desired device to the receiver.

Connecting an Auxiliary Audio Device

You can also connect an audio device that does not require Toslink (such as an MP3 player, playback cassette deck, or portable CD player) to the Home Theater Audio System. Use audio cords to connect the desired device to the receiver’s AUX jacks. Connect red plugs to the redAUDIO jacks and white plugs to the whiteAUDIO jacks.

Connecting a Second Sub Woofer

You can connect a second or larger powered subwoofer to the system. Connect the sub woofer to the receiver’s SUB WOOFER PRE-OUT jack using shielded audio cable (not supplied).

CONNECTING ANTENNAS

When connecting equipment, always make sure the power is switched off and the power cord is disconnected from the wall outlet.

FM Indoor Antenna

In an area with strong FM signals, the T-typeFM antenna (supplied) is sufficient.

1.Use a flat or Phillips screwdriver to loosen the screws on the supplied transformer.

2.Place the metal connectors on the end of theT-typeantenna’s base on the transformer’s metal contacts (underneath the screw heads) then tighten the screws.

3.Plug the transformer into ANTENNA FM 75 Ω.

4.Extend the T-antenna’sother two wires and attach them to a wall or window frame for the best possible reception.

If you have a cable FM antenna, use a coaxial cable to connect it to

ANTENNA FM 75 Ω.

FM Outdoor Antenna

In an area where FM signals are weak, you must use a 75-ohmun-balanced-typeoutdoor FM antenna (not supplied). Generally, a3-ele-ment antenna will be sufficient. If you live in an area where the FM signals are particularly weak, it may be necessary to use one with 5 or more elements.

Connect the antenna’s coaxial cable to the supplied transformer. Plug the transformer into ANTENNA FM 75 Ω.

Connecting a Digital Optical Audio Devices

You can connect a digital audio device such as an DAT (Digital AudioTape) or MD (Mini Disc) recorder to the receiver’s DIGITAL OUT to record audio from the receiver. Use Toslink optical cable to connect the DAT or MD recorder to the receiver’sDIGITAL OUT optical jack.

AM Indoor Loop Antenna

The supplied high-performanceAM loop antenna is sufficient for good reception in most areas.

Preparation

7

Connect the loop antenna’s wires to AM andGND. Place the antenna in a location (for example, on a shelf or window frame) that gives the best reception.

Keep the antenna as far away as possible from the entire system, speaker cords and the power cord to prevent unwanted noise.

AM Outdoor Antenna

If the supplied AM loop antenna does not deliver sufficient reception, use an outdoor AM antenna (not supplied).

Note: Even when using an outdoor AM antenna, do not disconnect the AM indoor loop antenna.

Use an insulated wire more than 15 ft (5 m) long. Strip one end, and connect that end to AM.

The antenna wire should be strung outdoors or indoors near a window. For better reception, connect the GND terminal to a reliable ground.

CONNECTING THE SPEAKERS

When connecting equipment, always make sure the power is switched off and the power cord is disconnected from the wall outlet.

Note: Use speakers with a normal impedance of 6 Ohms.

Follow these steps to connect the speakers.

1.Remove the plastic end pieces from the wires.

2.Twist the exposed ends of the bare wire strands.

3.Press up (or down) the speaker’s terminal and insert the appropriate wire ends. The color of the speaker wire’s plastic coating is the same as the color of the matching terminal.

Note: Be sure to connect each speaker to the appropriate speaker terminal, connecting positive to positive (+ to +) and negative to negative (– to–).

4.Connect the front speaker’s wire to the receiver’s SPEAKERS FRONT L andR terminals (Red/Black).

Connect the rear speaker’s wire to the receiver’s SPEAKERS REAR L andR terminals (Gray/Black).

Connect the center speaker’s wire to the receiver’s SPEAKERS CENTER terminal (Blue/Black).

Connect the subwoofer’s wire to the receiver’s SPEAKERS WOOFER terminal (Brown/Black).

5.Release the speaker terminal.

6.Plug the AC power cord into an AC wall socket.

PLACING THE SPEAKERS

1.Place the front left and right speakers at equal distances from the TV.

2.Install the center speaker above or below the TV so that the sound of the center channel is localized at the TV screen.

Caution: If you choose to install the center speaker on top of the TV, be sure to secure it, to reduce the risk of damage or injury

resulting from the speaker falling from the TV in the event of external shocks (for example, earthquakes).

3. If possible, install the surround speakers slightly above ear level.

Note: Try not to install the surround speakers farther away from the listening position than the front and center speakers. Doing so can weaken the surround effect.

To achieve the best possible surround sound, install your speakers as shown below. Be sure all speakers are installed securely to prevent accidents and improve sound quality.

(Illus of speaker set up, please use the illus of 31-5011if necessary)

INSTALLING BATTERIES IN THE REMOTE CONTROL

Your remote control requires two AAA batteries (not supplied) for power. For the best performance and longest life, we recommend RadioShack alkaline batteries.

Cautions:

Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.

Do not mix old and new batteries or different types of batteries. Follow these steps to install batteries.

1.Slide the battery compartment cover in the direction of the arrow to remove it.

2.Place the batteries in the compartment as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and –)marked inside.

3.Replace the cover.

When the remote control stops operating properly, replace the batteries.

Warning: Dispose of old batteries promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury them.

Caution: If you do not plan to use the remote control for a month or longer, remove the batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.
