Before Installation

Precautions

Checking the Supplied Accessories

General Precautions

DO NOT insert any metal object into the unit.

DO NOT disassemble the unit or remove screws, covers, or cabinet.

DO NOT expose the unit to rain or moisture.

Locations

Install the unit in a location that is level and protected from moisture.

The temperature around the unit must be between 5˚C and 35˚C (41˚F and 95˚F).

Make sure there is good ventilation around the unit. Poor ventilation could cause overheating and damage the unit.

Handling the unit

DO NOT touch the power cord with wet hands.

DO NOT pull on the power cord to unplug it. When unplugging the cord, always grasp the plug so as not to damage the cord.

Keep the power cord away from the connecting cords and the antenna. The power cord may cause noise or screen interference. It is recommended to use a coaxial cable for antenna connection, since it is well-shielded against interference.

When a power failure occurs, or when you unplug the power cord, the preset settings such as preset FM or AM channels and sound adjustments may be erased in a few days.

Check to be sure you have all of the following supplied accessories.

The number in the parentheses indicates the quantity of the pieces supplied.

Remote control (1)

Batteries (2)

AM loop antenna (1)

FM antenna (1)

How to connect speakers cords

For each speaker, connect the (+) and (–) terminals on the rear panel to the (+) and (–) terminals marked on the speakers respectively.

1Twist and remove the insulation at the end of each speaker cord (not supplied).

2Press and hold the clamp of the speaker terminal (1), then insert the speaker cord (2).

3Release the clamp.

About the speaker impedance

The required speaker impedance of the front speakers differs depending on whether both the FRONT SPEAKERS 1 and FRONT SPEAKERS 2 terminals are used or only one of them is used.

When you connect only one pair of front speakers, use front speakers with 8 – 16 Ω impedance.

When you connect both pairs of front speakers, use front speakers with 16 – 32 Ω impedance.

Connecting the subwoofer speaker

By connecting a subwoofer, you can enhance the bass or reproduce the original LFE signals recorded in the digital software.

Connect the input jack of a powered subwoofer to the SUBWOOFER OUT jack on the rear panel, using a cable with RCA pin plugs (not supplied).

• Refer also to the manual supplied with your subwoofer.

Note:

You can place a subwoofer wherever you like since bass sound is non-directional. Normally place it in front of you.

To obtain the best possible sound from this system, place all the speakers except the subwoofer at the same distance from the listening position with each speaker’s front faced toward the listener.

Then, change the subwoofer and speaker settings to fit your listening conditions (see pages 22 to 24).

You can set the speakers quickly according to the number of speakers you have connected.

See “Setting Speakers Quickly” on page 21.

The distance from your listening point to the speakers is another important element to obtain the best possible surround sound from the Surround modes.

Set the distance from your listening point to the speakers. By referring to the speaker distance setting, this unit automatically sets the delay time of the sound through each speaker so that sounds through all the speakers can reach you at the same time.

If you have used Quick Setup (see page 21), this setting is not required.

Set the distance from the listening point within the range of 0.3 m (1 ft) to 9.0 m (30 ft), in 0.3 m (1 ft) intervals.

Notes:

“10ft” is the initial setting.

If you have selected “NO” for the center and surround speakers setting, you cannot set the speaker distance for the center and surround speakers.

Ex.:In this case,

set “FRNT D” to “11ft,”

 

 

 

set “CNTR D” to “10ft” and

 

 

set “SURR D” to “9ft.”

About auto memory

This unit memorizes the settings for each source:

when you turn off the power (see page 12),

when you change the source (see page 12),

when you change the source name (see page 13), and

when you change the analog/digital input mode (see page 14).

When you change the source, the memorized settings for the newly selected source are automatically recalled. The following can be stored for each source:

Analog/digital input mode (see page 14)

Input attenuator mode (see page 15)

Front speaker output balance (see page 26)

Tone adjustment (see the left column)

Speaker output level (see the left column)

DAP effect level (see the left column)

Surround mode selection (see page 30)

Note:

If the source is FM or AM, you can assign a different setting for each band.

Creating Realistic Sound Fields

You can use the following Surround modes to reproduce a realistic sound field:

7Dolby surround

Dolby Pro Logic II

7Digital multi-channel surround

Dolby Digital

DTS Digital Surround

7DAP (Digital Acoustic Processor) modes

7All Channel Stereo

Dolby surround

Dolby Pro Logic II*

Dolby Pro Logic II is a playback format to decode into 5.1- channel from all 2-channel sources—stereo sources and Dolby surround encoded sources.

Matrix-based encoding/decoding method for Dolby Pro Logic II makes no limitation for the cutoff frequency of the surround treble and enables stereo surround sound compared to conventional Dolby Pro Logic.

You cannot select Dolby Pro Logic II when playing back DVD AUDIO.

DTS Digital Surround**

Used to reproduce multi-channel sound tracks of software encoded with DTS Digital Surround ().

To use software encoded with DTS Digital Surround, connect the source component using the digital terminal on the rear of this unit. (See page 11.)

DTS Digital Surround is another discrete multi-channel digital audio format available on CD, LD, and DVD software. Compared to Dolby Digital, audio compression ratio is relatively low. This fact allows DTS Digital Surround format to add breadth and depth to the reproduced sounds. As a result, DTS Digital Surround features natural, solid and clear sound.

Note:

Dolby Digital or DTS software can be roughly grouped into two categories—multi-channel (up to 5.1-channel) and 2-channel software. To enjoy surround sounds while playing Dolby Digital 2- channel or DTS software, you can use Dolby Pro Logic II.

Typical multi-channel (5.1-channel) reproduction

Dolby Pro Logic II enables you to reproduce spacious sound from original sound without adding any new sounds and tonal colorations.

Dolby Pro Logic II has two modes—Movie mode and Music mode:

Pro Logic II Movie (PLII MOVIE)—suitable for reproduction of Dolby Surround encoded sources bearing the mark

DOLBY SURROUND and stereo television sources. You can enjoy a sound field very close to the one created with discrete 5.1- channel sounds.

Pro Logic II Music (PLII MUSIC)—suitable for reproduction of any 2-channel stereo music sources. You can enjoy wide and deep sound by using this mode.

When Dolby Pro Logic II is activated, the PL indicator lights up on the display.

Digital multi-channel (5.1 channel) surround

Dolby Digital*

Used to reproduce multi-channel sound tracks of the software encoded with Dolby Digital (D I G I T A L ).

To enjoy the software encoded with Dolby Digital, connect the source component using the digital terminal on the rear of this unit. (See page 11.)

Dolby Digital 5.1-channel encoding method (so-called discrete multi-channel digital audio format) records and digitally compresses the left front channel, right front channel, center channel, left surround channel, right surround channel, and LFE channel signals.

Since each channel is completely independent from the other channel signals to avoid interference, you can obtain much better sound quality with many stereo and surround effects.

DAP (Digital Acoustic Processor) modes

DAP modes have been designed to create important acoustic surround elements.

You cannot select DAP modes when playing back DVD AUDIO.

The sound heard in a live club, dance club, hall or pavilion consists of direct sound and indirect sound—early reflections and reflections from behind. Direct sounds reach the listener directly without any reflection. On the other hand, indirect sounds are delayed by the distances of the ceiling and walls (see the diagram on the next page).

These indirect sounds are important elements of the acoustic surround effects. The DAP mode can reproduce a realistic sound field by adding these indirect sounds.

Creating Realistic Sound Fields

DAP modes can be used when the front and surround speakers are connected to this unit (without respect to the center speaker connection: no sound comes out of the center speaker even if it is connected).

The following DAP modes are provided for this unit:

LIVE CLUB Gives the feeling of a live music club with a low ceiling.

DANCE CLUB Gives a throbbing bass beat.

HALL

Gives clear vocal and the feeling of a

PAVILION Gives the spacious feeling of a pavilion with a high ceiling.

These DAP modes can be used to add the acoustic surround effects while reproducing 2-channel stereo software, either analog or Linear PCM digital signal, and can give you a real “being there” feeling.

When one of the DAP modes is selected, the DSP indicator lights up on the display.

All Channel Stereo

This mode can reproduce a larger stereo sound field using all the connected (and activated) speakers.

You cannot select All Channel Stereo when playing back DVD AUDIO.

All Channel Stereo can be used when the front and surround speakers are connected to this receiver without respect to the center speaker connection.

If the center speaker is connected and activated, the same phases of the front left and right signals are mixed and output through the center speaker.

All Channel Stereo can be used while reproducing 2-channel stereo software, either analog or Linear PCM digital signal.

When All Channel Stereo is selected, the DSP indicator lights up on the display.

Notes for DVD AUDIO multi-channel surround

When playing back DVD AUDIO, you cannot select Pro Logic II, DAP modes, and All Channel Stereo.

For the multi-channel track which can be mixed down:

When “NO” is selected as the speaker setting for the center or surround speakers, the corresponding multi-channel is mixed down to the front speaker channels.

For the multi-channel track which cannot be mixed down:

When you try to deactivate Surround mode during play,

“MULTI CH” appears on the display and Surround mode still remains.

When you start playback with Surround mode deactivated, “LR

ONLY” appears on the display. In this case, you cannot listen to the sounds other than left and right front channels.

DVD Player Operations

Disc Information

Playable disc types

This unit has been designed to play back the following discs: DVD VIDEO, DVD AUDIO, Video CD (VCD)*, Super Video CD (SVCD)*, audio CD*, CD-R, and CD-RW.

*This instruction refers to Video CD as VCD, Super Video CD as SVCD, and audio CD as CD.

DIGITAL AUDIO

 

CD-R

CD-RW

This unit can also play back MP3 and JPEG (still picture) files recorded on CD-R and CD-RW. For details about MP3, see “MP3 Disc Playback” on pages 47 and 48 and about JPEG, see “JPEG Disc Playback” on pages 49 and 50.

The following discs cannot be played back:

DVD-ROM, DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, CD-ROM, CD-I (CD-I Ready), Photo CD, etc.

Playing back these discs will generate noise and damage the speakers.

On some DVD VIDEO, DVD AUDIO, VCD, or SVCD, their actual operations may be different from what is explained in this manual. This is due to the disc programming and disc structure, but not a malfunction of this unit.

You can play back DVD-R recorded with the DVD VIDEO format, but some may not be played back because of the disc characteristics or recording conditions.

Note on Region Code

DVD players and DVD VIDEO have their own Region Code numbers. This unit can play back only DVD VIDEO recorded with the color system of NTSC whose Region Code numbers include “1.”

Ex.:

If a DVD VIDEO with the wrong Region Code numbers is loaded, “REGION CODE ERROR!” appears on the TV and playback cannot start.

Notes on CD-R and CD-RW

User-edited CD-R (Recordable) and CD-RW (ReWritable) can be played back only if they are already “finalized.

The unit can play back CD-R or CD-RW recorded on a personal computer if they have been recorded in the audio CD format or in MP3 format.

The unit can also play back CD-R or CD-RW if MP3 files or JPEG files are recorded on them.

However, they may not be played back because of their disc characteristics, recording conditions, or damage or stain on them. Especially, the configuration and characteristics of an MP3 disc or a JPEG disc is determined by the writing (encoding) software and hardware used for recording. Therefore, due to the software and hardware used, the following symptoms may occur:

Some discs may not be played back.

Some tracks on an MP3 disc are skipped and may not be played back normally.

Some files on a JPEG disc may be played back distortedly.

Before playing back CD-R or CD-RW, read their instructions or cautions carefully.

CD-RW may require a longer readout time. It is caused by the fact that the reflectance of CD-RW is lower than for regular audio CD.

IMPORTANT: Before playing a disc, make sure of the

following...

Check the connection with the TV.

Turn on the TV and select the correct input mode on the TV to view the pictures or on-screen indications on the TV screen.

For disc playback, you can change the initial setting to your preference. (See pages 51 to 59.)

If “” appears on the TV screen when you press a button, the disc cannot accept an operation you have tried to do, or data required for that operation is not recorded on the disc.

NOTICE: In some cases, without showing “,” operations will not be accepted.

DVD Player Operations

7 Disc structure

DVD VIDEO consists of “titles,” and each title may be divided into some “chapters.

For example, if a DVD VIDEO contains some movies, each movie may have its own title number and it may be further divided into some chapters. In a DVD VIDEO Karaoke, each song may have its own title number, but it may not be further divided into chapters.

On a JPEG disc, each still picture is recorded as a file. Files are usually grouped into a folder. Folders can also include other folders, creating hierarchical folder layers.

This unit simplifies the hierarchical construction of a disc and manages folders by “groups.”

This unit can recognize and play back up to 150 files per group and up to 99 groups per disc. Files whose numbers exceed 150 and groups whose numbers exceed 99 cannot be played back.

DVD AUDIO consists of “groups,” and each group may be divided into some “tracks.

Some DVD AUDIOs also contain a “bonus group” that can be played back by entering the “key number” (a kind of password). Usually the contents of “bonus group” are not open to the public.

Note that most DVD AUDIOs include much information in addition to audio, such as still pictures, movies, and text.

Composite video signal

A video signal comprised of three kinds of signals combined: an image signal made up of luminance and chrominance signals using the frequency multiplication technique, burst signal providing the basis for color reproduction, and synchronization signal.

Packed PCM (PCM: Pulse Code Modulation)

A format for DVD AUDIO with a compression ratio of about 2:1. This supports up to 192 kHz/24 bit and allows PCM signals to be completely recreated.

Parental Lock

A feature of this system to automatically determine whether or not to reproduce particular DVD VIDEO software by comparing its parental level (a measure of undesirability of scenes, etc. from educational viewpoint) set for the software beforehand with that set on this system by the user; if the software’s level is less restrictive than the user-set level, it will be reproduced.

Disc menu

A screen display prepared for allowing selection of images, sounds, subtitles, multi-angle, etc. recorded on DVD VIDEO.

Interlaced scanning

In the conventional video system, a picture is shown on the display monitor in two halves. The Interlaced scanning system places lines of the second half of the picture inbetween lines of the first half of the picture.

JPEG

A still-picture data compression system proposed by the Joint Photographic Expert Group, which features little distortion in image quality in spite of its high compression ratio.
