CAUTION:

TO PREVENT THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT REMOVE COVER (OR BACK). NO USER-SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE. REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONNEL.

WARNING

This equipment is not waterproof. To prevent a fire or shock hazard, do not place any container filed with liquid near this equipment (such as a vase or flower pot) or expose it to dripping, splashing, rain or moisture.

WARNING

Before plugging in for the first time, read the following section carefully.

The voltage of the available power supply differs according to country or region. Be sure that the power supply voltage of the area where this unit will be used meets the required voltage (e.g., 230 V or 120 V) written on the rear panel.

WARNING

To prevent a fire hazard, do not place any naked flame sources (such as a lighted candle) on the equipment.

For Taiwan exclusively

Taiwanese two pin flat-bladed plug

VENTILATION CAUTION

When installing this unit, make sure to leave space around the unit for ventilation to improve heat radiation (at least 10 cm at top, 10 cm at rear, and 10 cm at each side).

WARNING

Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation to ensure reliable operation of the product, and to protect it from overheating. To prevent fire hazard, the openings should never be blocked or covered with items (such as newspapers, table-cloths, curtains) or by operating the equipment on thick carpet or a bed.

CAUTION

The STANDBY/ON switch on this unit will not completely shut off all power from the AC outlet. Since the power cord serves as the main disconnect device for the unit, you will need to unplug it from the AC outlet to shut down all power. Therefore, make sure the unit has been installed so that the power cord can be easily unplugged from the AC outlet in case of an accident. To avoid fire hazard, the power cord should also be unplugged from the AC outlet when left unused for a long period of time (for example, when on vacation).

POWER-CORD CAUTION

Operating Environment

Handle the power cord by the plug. Do not pull out the plug by tugging the cord and never touch the power cord when your hands are wet as this could cause a short circuit or electric shock. Do not place the unit, a piece of furniture, etc., on the power cord, or pinch the cord. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other cords. The power cords should be routed such that they are not likely to be stepped on. A damaged power cord can cause a fire or give you an electrical shock. Check the power cord once in a while. When you find it damaged, ask your nearest PIONEER authorized service center or your dealer for a replacement.

This product is for general household purposes. Any failure due to use for other than household purposes (such as long-term use for business purposes in a restaurant or use in a car or ship) and which requires repair will be charged for even during the warranty period.

Operating environment temperature and humidity: +5 ºC – +35 ºC (+41 ºF – +95 ºF); less than 85 %RH (cooling vents not blocked)

Do not install this unit in a poorly ventilated area, or in locations exposed to high humidity or direct sunlight (or strong artificial light)

If the AC plug of this unit does not match the AC outlet you want to use, the plug must be removed and appropriate one fitted. Replacement and mounting of an AC plug on the power supply cord of this unit should be performed only by qualified service personnel. If connected to an AC outlet, the cut-off plug can cause severe electrical shock. Make sure it is properly disposed of after removal.

The equipment should be disconnected by removing the mains plug from the wall socket when left unused for a long period of time (for example, when on vacation).

The Multichannel Acoustic Calibration

 

 

FranÁais

 

 

 

(MCACC) system measures the acoustic

 

 

characteristics of your listening area, taking

 

into account ambient noise and testing for

 

channel delay and channel level. After you

 

have set up the microphone provided with your

Italiano

system, the receiver uses the information from

 

a series of test tones to optimize the speaker

 

settings and equalization (Acoustic Calibration

 

EQ) for your particular room.2

Important

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

• These test tones are loud; however, do not

 

turn the volume down during setup as this

 

may result in a sub-optimal calibration.

Place it about ear height, and make sure it is level by using a table or chair.

Make sure there are no obstacles between the speakers and the microphone.

3 If the system is off, press STANDBY/ON to turn the power on.

If the tuner is selected, switch the input source.

4Press SHIFT+MCACC.

Try to be as quiet as possible after pressing SHIFT+MCACC. The volume increases automatically and the system outputs a series of test tones.

Press SHIFT+MCACC to cancel and revert to the previous Auto MCACC settings.

If the noise level is too high, NOISY blinks in the display for five seconds. To exit and check the noise levels1, press SHIFT+MCACC, or to try again, press ENTER when RETRY shows in the display.

When the MCACC setup is complete, the volume level returns to normal and

COMPLETE3 shows in the display, indicating that the MCACC setup is complete and

Acoustic Calibration EQ has been activated.4

Using the on-screen displays

For ease of use, this system makes extensive use of graphical on-screen displays (OSDs).

All the screens are navigated in basically the same way, using , , , to change the highlighted item and pressing ENTER to select

it.5

Important

Throughout this manual, ‘Select’ means use the cursor buttons to highlight an item on-screen, then press ENTER.

HOME Displays/exits the on-screen display

MENU

ENTER Selects the highlighted menu item

RETURN Returns to the main menu without saving changes

If you see an ERR MIC or ERR SP message in the display, there may be a problem with your mic or the speaker connections. To try again, press ENTER when you see RETRY2.

Tip

The button guide at the bottom of every OSD screen shows you which buttons you’ll need to use for that screen.

Note

1• If the room environment is not optimal for the Auto MCACC setup (too much ambient noise, echo off the walls, obstacles blocking the speakers from the microphone) the final settings may be incorrect. Check for household appliances (air conditioner, fridge, fan, etc.), that may be affecting the environment and switch them off if necessary.

Some older TVs may interfere with the operation of the mic. If this seems to be happening, switch off the TV during the Auto MCACC setup.

2If this doesn’t work, press SHIFT+MCACC, turn off the power, and check the problem indicated by the ERR message, then try the Auto MCACC setup again.

3If COMPLETE doesn’t appear, it is likely an error occurred during the setup. Please check all connections and try again.

4See Listening with Acoustic Calibration EQ on page 15 to switch on/off Acoustic Calibration EQ.

Playing discs

The basic playback controls for playing DVD, CD, Video CD/Super VCD, DivX video and WMA/MP3/MPEG-4 AAC discs are covered here. Further functions are detailed in chapter 4.

3 Press (play) to start playback.

If you’re playing a DVD or Video CD/Super VCD, a menu may appear. See DVD-Video disc menus and Video CD/Super VCD PBC menus on page 12 to navigate these.

If you loaded a disc containing JPEGs, a slideshow will start. See Playing a JPEG slideshow on page 17 for more on this.

If a disc contains a mixture of DivX video and other media file types (MP3, for example), first select whether to play the DivX video files (DivX) or the other media file types (MP3 / WMA / JPEG / MPEG-4 AAC) from the on-screen display.

4 Adjust the volume.

Use the VOLUME control.

Basic playback controls

The following table shows the basic controls on

the remote for playing discs1. You can find other playback features in the chapter 4.

Button What it does
