Important Information

CAUTION: The lenses contained in this product are extremely delicate precision optics, and may be scratched or otherwise damaged by physical contact with external objects of any kind. It is therefore essential to avoid any such contact, or any other mistreatment of the lenses. Scratches or other externally caused damage to lenses that are deemed to have arisen through neglect or misuse, are excluded from protection under the Marantz Limited Warranty.

1.The LN9101M Power Supply Adapter should not be connected to the LN9101M Motorized Sled or to the AC Power Wall Outlet until the physical mounting of the Marantz VP-11, LN9101M Anamorphic Lens System and MT20/EXT10 Mounting Brackets is completed.

2.For additional connection information, refer to the owner’s manual(s) for any component(s) connected to the LN9101M Anamorphic Lens System.

3.The LN9101M Anamorphic Lens is designed to produce the best possible images when a curved Anamorphic Projection Screen is used, contact your Marantz Dealer for additional information.

4.The Anamorphic Lens is a precision optical device with special coatings just like you would find on Professional Cameras. In the event the Lens requires cleaning to remove airborne particles such as dust and dirt from the Lens, use a safe cleaning product such as a clean and dry 3MTM ScotchBrite® Microfiber Lens Cleaning Cloth. At no time should ordinary household cleaning products be used to clean the Lens, as damage will occur.

5.To protect the lens surfaces from accidental damage during the installation process DO NOT REMOVE THE LENS COVERS UNTIL INSTRUCTED.

6.The LN9101M Motorized Sled uses bearings made from specialized permanently lubricated materials. Keep the rail linear bearing clean, dry, and contaminant free. Do not apply any lubricants to the Motorized Sled as this will gum up the mechanism and possibly produce a film on the projector and anamorphic lenses.

In case the LN9101M Sled is accidentally soiled (i.e. spilled soda), clean all contaminants with distilled water first and allow it to dry. Then wipe it down with denatured alcohol. The LN9101M should never be operated unless the mechanism is completely dry, as it relies upon clean and dry rails to operate smoothly.

7.The assembly and adjustemnt of LN9101M/EXT10/ MT20 will require a Phillips head screw driver, adjustable wrench, 5/32 and 3/16 allen tools.

8.When the symbol illustrated here is located on

the product or on the packaging, it

indicates the product must not be disposed of with your other household

waste. Instead, it is your responsibility to dispose of your waste equipment by handing it over to a designated col-

lection point for the recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment. The separate collection and recycling of your waste equipment at the time of disposal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that it is recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. For more information about where you can drop off your waste equipment for recycling, please contact your local city office, your household waste disposal service or the Marantz Dealer where you purchased the product.

3.Press the LENS IN Push-button on the Remote Control and the Lens will travel to a position in front of the projector Lens. Verify the horizontal center of the LN9101M Lens coincides with the horizontal center of the projector Lens. If the LN9101M Lens doesn’t line up, loosen the screws on the LN9101M Sled and slide the Top Adjustment Plate slightly to the left or right relative to Plate 4 to center the Lens. Tighten the screws. Refer to figures 4A, 4B, 4C and 5 on page 6.

Notes: The projected test pattern will probably have some forms of geometric distortions as a result of misalignment of the Anamorphic Lens to the projector. If a chattering noise is heard during sled movement, loosen all eight screws on the sled mounting plate, recycle the lens positions several times and then tighten the screws.

Refer to figures 6 and 9 on page 6.

4.If the Test Pattern appears tilted on the screen loosen the four locking screws on the Lens alignment collar and rotate the Lens to straighten out the pattern. Then tighten the four locking screws. Refer to figure 8 on page 6.

Notes: Inside the Lens close to the front are two vertical visible black masks. When the edge of those masks are parallel with the Lens Holder Post, the crosshatch should no longer be tilted.

Do not look directly into the Lens, look off

from the side at an angle.

5.Rotate the front part of the LN9101M Lens for the best focus.

6.Using the appropriate tools loosen the three

screws on the Lens Holder Locking Ring while at the same time supporting the Lens on the bottom. Refer to figure 29.

7.Adjust the height of the LN9101M Lens so its

vertical center coincides with the center of

the projector lens and the crosshatch pattern is centered vertically on the screen. Tighten the center screw on the Locking Ring and then rotate the LN9101M

Lens left to right to center the crosshatch pattern horizontally on the screen. Then tighten the two screws previously loosened on the Locking Ring.

8. The final adjustment is for straighten out the lines of the crosshatch test patern. Loosen the tilt ad-


justment screw located near the Lens Holder. The front of the LN9101M Lens can be pivoted up or down to straighten out the lines in the test pattern. Then tighten the screw to retain the position.

Note: If the screen used is not a curved anamorphic screen, some geometric distortion may be visible.

9. Proceed to Operation.


The Marantz VP-11 Projector is designed to automatically activate the LN9101M Lens when using the Remote Control supplied with the Projector. However, some of the Projector default settings must be changed for this to occur, perform the following steps:

1.Switch On the projector and press the MENU Push-button on the Remote Control.

2.Select the Conf. Menu option and then change the default “Trigger 2” settings to agree with the list below:

Trigger 2 Full - Off Trigger 2 Normal - Off Trigger 2 Zoom - Off Trigger 2 V-stretch - On Trigger 2 Through - Off

3.Exit the projector menu mode.

4.When an Anamorphic Source is viewed, press the ASPECT Ratio Push-button until the “V- STRETCH” Mode is selected using the Projectors’ Remote Control. The LN9101M Lens will move into its active position (in front of the projector lens).

5.When viewing non Anamorphic Sources select one of the four other Aspect Ratios (Full, Normal, Zoom or Through) and the LN9101M Lens will move to its inactive position (no longer in front of the projector lens).
