Precautions

1.Recording Copyright—Unless it’s for personal use only, recording copyrighted material is illegal without the permission of the copyright holder.

2.AC Fuse—The AC fuse inside the unit is not userserviceable. If you cannot turn on the unit, contact your Onkyo dealer.

3.Care—Occasionally you should dust the unit all over with a soft cloth. For stubborn stains, use a soft cloth dampened with a weak solution of mild detergent and water. Dry the unit immediately afterwards with a clean cloth. Don’t use abrasive cloths, thinners, alcohol, or other chemical solvents, because they may damage the finish or remove the panel lettering.

4.Power WARNING

BEFORE PLUGGING IN THE UNIT FOR THE FIRST TIME, READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY.

AC outlet voltages vary from country to country. Make sure that the voltage in your area meets the voltage requirements printed on the unit’s rear panel (e.g., AC 230 V, 50 Hz or AC 120 V, 60 Hz).

The power cord plug is used to disconnect this unit from the AC power source. Make sure that the plug is readily operable (easily accessible) at all times.

Pressing the [ON/STANDBY] button to select Standby mode does not fully shutdown the unit. If you do not intend to use the unit for an extended period, remove the power cord from the AC outlet.

5.Never Touch this Unit with Wet Hands—Never handle this unit or its power cord while your hands are wet or damp. If water or any other liquid gets inside this unit, have it checked by your Onkyo dealer.

6.Handling Notes

If you need to transport this unit, use the original packaging to pack it how it was when you originally bought it.

Do not leave rubber or plastic items on this unit for a long time, because they may leave marks on the case.

This unit’s top and rear panels may get warm after prolonged use. This is normal.

If you do not use this unit for a long time, it may not work properly the next time you turn it on, so be sure to use it occasionally.

Precautions—Continued

For British models

Replacement and mounting of an AC plug on the power supply cord of this unit should be performed only by qualified service personnel.

IMPORTANT

The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:

Blue: Neutral Brown: Live

As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this apparatus may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:

The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured black.

The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured red.

IMPORTANT

The plug is fitted with an appropriate fuse. If the fuse needs to be replaced, the replacement fuse must be approved by ASTA or BSI to BS1362 and have the same ampere rating as that indicated on the plug. Check for the ASTA mark or the BSI mark on the body of the fuse. If the power cord’s plug is not suitable for your socket outlets, cut it off and fit a suitable plug. Fit a suitable fuse in the plug.

Speaker Precautions

Placement

The subwoofer cabinet is made out of wood and is therefore sensitive to extreme temperatures and humidity, do not put it in locations subject to direct sunlight or in humid places, such as near an air conditioner, humidifier, bathroom, or kitchen.

Do not put water or other liquids close to the speakers. If liquid is spilled over the speakers, the drive units may be damaged.

Speakers should only be placed on sturdy, flat surfaces that are free from vibration. Putting them on uneven or unstable surfaces, where they may fall and cause damage, will affect the sound quality.

Subwoofer is designed to be used in the upright vertical position only. Do not use it in the horizontal or tilted position.

If the unit is used near a turntable, CD player or DVD player, howling or slipping of sound may occur. To prevent this, move the unit away from the turntable, CD player or DVD player, otherwise lower the unit’s output level.

Using Close to a TV or Computer

TVs and computer monitors are magnetically sensitive devices and as such are likely to suffer discoloration or picture distortion when conventional speakers are placed nearby. To prevent this, the SKF-750XF and SKC-750XC feature internal magnetic shielding. In some situations, however, discoloration may still be an issue, in which case you should turn off your TV or monitor, wait 15 to 30 minutes, and then turn it back on again. This normally activates the degaussing function, which neutralizes the magnetic field, thereby removing any discoloration effects. If discoloration problems persist, try moving the speakers away from your TV or monitor. Note that discoloration can also be caused by a magnet or demagnetizing tool that’s too close to your TV or monitor.

Do not place SKM-750XS close to TV or a computer monitor because they have no magnetic shield.

Input Signal Warning

The speakers can handle the specified input power when used for normal music reproduction. If any of the following signals are fed to them, even if the input power is within the specified rating, excessive current may flow in the speaker coils, causing burning or wire breakage:

1.Interstation noise from an untuned FM radio.

2.Sound from fast-forwarding a cassette tape.

3.High-pitched sounds generated by an oscillator, electronic musical instrument, and so on.

4.Amplifier oscillation.

5.Special test tones from audio test CDs and so on.

6.Thumps and clicks caused by connecting or disconnecting audio cables (Always turn off your amplifier before connecting or disconnecting cables.)

7.Microphone feedback.

Connecting Your Speakers

Enjoying Home Theater

Thanks to the AV receiver’s superb capabilities, you can enjoy surround sound with a real sense of movement in your own home—just like being in a movie theater or concert hall. You can enjoy DVDs featuring Dolby Digital or DTS. With analog or digital TV, you can enjoy Dolby Pro Logic IIx, DTS Neo:6, or Onkyo’s original DSP listening modes.

Front left and right speakers (SKF-750XF)

These output the main sound. Their role in a home theater is to provide a solid anchor for the sound image. They should be positioned facing the listener at about ear level, and equally spaced from the TV. Angle them inward slightly so as to create a triangle, with the listener at the apex.

Center speaker (SKC-750XC)

This speaker enhances the front left and right speakers, making sound movements distinct and providing a full sound image. For movies it’s used mainly for dialog.

Position it close to your TV (preferably on top) facing forward at about ear level, or at the same height as the front left and right speakers.

Surround left and right speakers (SKM-750XS)

These speakers are used for precise sound positioning and to add realistic ambience.

Position them at the sides of the listener, or slightly behind, about 2–3 feet (60–100 cm) above ear level. Ideally they should be equally spaced from the listener.

Subwoofer (SKW-750X)

The subwoofer handles the bass sounds of the LFE (Low-Frequency Effects) channel. The volume and quality of the bass output from your subwoofer will depend on its position, the shape of your listening room, and your listening position. In general, a good bass sound can be obtained by installing the subwoofer in a front corner, or at one-third the way along the front wall, as shown.

Tip: To find the best position for your subwoofer, while playing a movie or some music with good bass, experiment by placing your subwoofer at various positions within the room and choose the one that provides the most satisfying results.

Corner position

1/3 of wall position

Surround back left and right speakers (SKB-750X)

These speakers are necessary to enjoy Dolby Digital EX, DTS-ES Matrix, DTS-ES Discrete, etc. They enhance the realism of surround sound and improve sound localization behind the listener. Position them behind the listener about 2–3 feet (60–100 cm) above ear level.

*If you’re using only one surround back speaker, connect it to the SURR BACK L terminals.

No matter how many speakers you use, a powered subwoofer is recommended for a powerful and solid bass.

To get the best from your surround-sound system, you must set the speaker settings. You can do this automatically (see page 42) or manually (see page 74).

Speaker Connection Precautions

Read the following before connecting your speakers:

You can connect speakers with an impedance of between 8 and 16 ohms. If you use speakers with a lower impedance, and use the amplifier at high volume levels for a long period of time, the built-in amp protection circuit may be activated.

Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet before making any connections.

Read the instructions supplied with your speakers.

Pay close attention to speaker wiring polarity. Connect positive (+) terminals to only positive (+) terminals, and negative (–) terminals to only negative (–) terminals. If you get them the wrong way around, the sound will be out of phase and will sound unnatural.

Unnecessarily long or very thin speaker cables may affect the sound quality and should be avoided.

Be careful not to short the

positive and negative wires. Doing so may damage the AV receiver.

• Don’t connect more than one cable to each speaker terminal. Doing so may damage the AV receiver.

• Don’t connect a speaker to several terminals.

Connecting Your Speakers—Continued

Center Speaker Base

The center speaker base is for mounting the center speaker horizontally. If you put it on a TV stand or AV stand, aim it toward the listening position. The center speaker should sit securely on the base. If it’s loose, try resetting it.

The cradle surface of the base features two stoppers to prevent the speaker from moving. Therefore, you can tilt the speaker toward the front by up to 11 degrees.

Using the Floor Pads for Subwoofer

If the subwoofer is placed on a hard floor (wood, vinyl, tile, etc.) and playback is very loud, the subwoofer's feet may damage the flooring.

To prevent this, place the supplied pads underneath the sub-

woofer's feet. The pads also provide a stable base for the

subwoofer.

Wall Mounting

The speakers can easily be wall mounted by using the keyhole slots. To prevent the speaker from vibrating against the wall, attach four of the supplied spacers to the keyhole fins on the rear of each speaker.

Mounting vertically

To mount the front speakers vertically, use the keyhole slot shown to hang each speaker on a screw that’s securely screwed into the wall.

Rubber spacers

Mounting horizontally

To mount the center speaker horizontally, use the two keyhole slots shown to hang each speaker on two screws that are securely screwed into the wall.

Keyhole slots for horizontal wall mounting

Rubber spacers

Caution:

A mounting screw’s ability to support a speaker depends on how well it’s anchored to the wall. If you have hollow walls, screw each mounting screw into a stud. If there are no studs, or the walls are solid, use suitable wall anchors.

Use screws with a head diameter of 3/8" or less and a shank diameter of 1/8" or less. With hollow walls, use a cable/pipe detector to check for any power cables or water pipes before making any holes.

Leave a gap of between 1/4" and 5/16" between the wall and the base of the screw head, as shown.

(We recommend that you consult a home installation professional.)

Connecting Antennas

This section explains how to connect the supplied indoor FM antenna and AM loop antenna, and how to connect commercially available outdoor FM and AM antennas.

The AV receiver won’t pick up any radio signals without any antenna connected, so you must connect the antenna to use the tuner.

Once your AV receiver is ready for use, you’ll need to tune into an FM radio station and adjust the position of the FM antenna to achieve the best possible reception.

2 Use thumbtacks or something similar to fix the FM antenna into position.

Thumbtacks, etc.

Caution: Be careful that you don’t injure yourself when using thumbtacks.

If you cannot achieve good reception with the supplied indoor FM antenna, try a commercially available outdoor FM antenna instead (see page 25).

2 Connect both wires of the AM loop antenna to the AM push terminals, as shown.

(The antenna’s wires are not polarity sensitive, so they can be connected either way around).

Make sure that the wires are attached securely and that the push terminals are gripping the bare wires, not the insulation.

ANTENNA

Once your AV receiver is ready for use, you’ll need to tune into an AM radio station and adjust the position of the AM antenna to achieve the best possible reception.

Keep the antenna as far away as possible from your AV receiver, TV, speaker cables, and power cords.

If you cannot achieve good reception with the supplied indoor AM loop antenna, try using it with a commercially available outdoor AM antenna (see page 25).

Connecting Antennas—Continued

Connecting an Outdoor FM Antenna

If you cannot achieve good reception with the supplied indoor FM antenna, try a commercially available outdoor FM antenna instead.

FM 75

Notes:

Outdoor FM antennas work best outside, but usable results can sometimes be obtained when installed in an attic or loft.

For best results, install the outdoor FM antenna well away from tall buildings, preferably with a clear line of sight to your local FM transmitter.

Outdoor antenna should be located away from possible noise sources, such as neon signs, busy roads, etc.

For safety reasons, outdoor antenna should be situated well away from power lines and other high-voltage equipment.

Outdoor antenna must be grounded in accordance with local regulations to prevent electrical shock hazards.

Using a TV/FM Antenna Splitter

It’s best not to use the same antenna for both FM and TV reception, as this can cause interference problems. If circumstances demand it, use a TV/FM antenna splitter, as shown.

Connecting Your Components

About AV Connections

Before making any AV connections, read the manuals supplied with your other AV components.

Don’t connect the power cord until you’ve completed and double-checked all AV connections.

Optical Digital Jacks

The AV receiver’s optical digital jacks have shutter-type covers that open when an optical plug is inserted and close when it’s removed. Push plugs in all the way.

Caution: To prevent shutter damage, hold the optical plug straight when inserting and removing.

AV Connection Color Coding

RCA-type AV connections are usually color coded: red, white, and yellow. Use red plugs to connect rightchannel audio inputs and outputs (typically labeled “R”). Use white plugs to connect left-channel audio inputs and outputs (typically labeled “L”). And use yellow plugs to connect composite video inputs and outputs.

Which Connections Should I Use?

The AV receiver supports several connection formats for compatibility with a wide range of AV equipment. The format you choose will depend on the formats supported by your other components. Use the following sections as a guide.

For video components, you must make an audio connection and a video connection.

Audio Connection Formats

Audio equipment can be connected to the AV receiver by using any of the following audio connection formats: analog, optical, coaxial, analog multichannel, or HDMI.

When you connect audio equipment to an HDMI, OPTICAL, or COAXIAL input, you must assign that input to an input selector (see page 47).

When choosing a connection format, bear in mind that the AV receiver does not convert digital input signals for analog line outputs and vice versa. For example, audio signals connected to an optical or coaxial digital input are not output by the analog TAPE OUT.

If signals are present at more than one input, the inputs will be selected automatically in the following order of priority: HDMI, digital, analog (including multichannel). You can specify which audio inputs the AV receiver checks for the presence of a signal in the “Automatic Audio Input Selection Setup” on page 49.

27

Connecting Your Components—Continued

Video Connection Formats

Video equipment can be connected to the AV receiver by using any one of the following video connection formats: composite video, S-Video, component video, or HDMI, the latter offering the best picture quality.

Video input signals flow through the AV receiver as shown, with composite video, S- Video, and component video sources all being upconverted for the HDMI output.

The composite video, S-Video, and component video outputs pass through their respective input signals as they are.

When you connect audio equipment to an HDMI or COMPONENT input, you must assign that input to an input selector (see pages 46 and 47).

If signals are present at more than one input, the inputs will be selected automatically in the following order of priority: HDMI, component video, S-Video, composite video. However, for component video only, regardless of whether a component video signal is actually present, if a component video input is assigned to the input selector, that component video input will be selected. And if no component video input is assigned to the input selector, this will be interpreted as no component video signal being present.

In the Signal Selection Example shown on the right, video signals are present at both the S-Video and composite video inputs, however, the S-Video signal is automatically selected as the source and video is output by the S-Video and HDMI outputs.
