Keep in mind the following when using the remote control:

Make sure that nothing is blocking the remote sensor on the unit.

Remote operation may become unreliable is direct sunlight or fluorescent light is shining onto the remote sensor.

Remotes for different devices can interfere with each other. Avoid using remotes for other equipment located nearby this unit.

Replace the battery when you notice a fall off in the operating range of the remote.

Hints on installation

We want you to enjoy using this system for years to come, so please bear in mind the following points when choosing a suitable location for it:

Do...

Use in a well-ventilated room.

Place on a solid, flat, level surface, such as a table, shelf or stereo rack.

1 Before You Start

Don’t...

Use in a place exposed to high temperatures or humidity, including near radiators and other heat-generating appliances.

Place on a window sill or other place where the system will be exposed to direct sunlight.

Use in an excessively dusty or damp environment.

Use near a television or monitor as you may experience interference—especially if the television uses an indoor antenna.

Use in a kitchen or other room where the system may be exposed to smoke or steam.

Use on a thick rug or carpet, or cover with cloth—this may prevent proper cooling of the unit.

Place on an unstable surface, or one that is not large enough to support the system fully.

Avoiding condensation problems

Condensation may form inside the player if it is brought into a warm room from outside, or if the temperature of the room rises quickly. Although the condensation won’t damage the system, it may temporarily impair its performance. For this reason you should leave it to adjust to the warmer temperature for about an hour before switching on and using.

Discs compatible with this system

Any disc that displays one of the following logos should play in this system. Other discs (such as CD-ROMs) will not play in this unit. Note that this unit cannot record onto recordable discs.

This system can play CD-R and CD-RW discs recorded with audio. However, depending on the condition of the player and the disc, you may find that not all discs will play successfully. (For example, if the disc is scratched or dirty, or if the player’s pickup lens is dirty.)

Connecting the speakers

The speaker system consists of stereo satellite speakers and a subwoofer for powerful bass sound. Connect the speakers to the amplifier unit as shown below.

Important: When connecting or disconnecting speakers, make sure that the power is switched off and the unit unplugged from the wall outlet.

Connecting the satellite speakers

To get the best sound from the system, it’s important that the red (+) and black (–) speaker terminals on the amplifier are connected to the corresponding terminals on each speaker. To help you match up the terminals correctly, the supplied speaker cable is color coded: connect the white half of the cable to the black (–) terminals, and the grey striped half to the red (+) terminals.

Important: Make sure that the bare speaker wires cannot touch each other, or come into contact with other metal parts once the unit is switched on.

1Insert a wire into each speaker terminal on the rear of the amplifier.

2 Connecting Up

To remove the stand, press the center tab and slide the stand from the speaker.

Connecting the subwoofer

Use the supplied subwoofer cable to connect the subwoofer to the amplifer.

1Twist off the plastic shielding then twist the exposed wire strands together.

2Connect the bare wire ends of the cable to the subwoofer.

The white wire connects to the black terminal; the gray wire to the red.

To open a terminal, press down on the tab. Insert the wire, then release the tab to secure it.

3Connect the other end to the amplifier.

The cable will only plug in one way; line up the plug and socket before fully inserting.

Caution!

Do not connect any other amplifier to this system. In rare cases this may result in smoke or fire.

Do not block the port opening on the front of the subwoofer. Also, do not put your hand or other object into the port: you may damage the subwoofer.

If you wish to connect speakers other than the ones supplied, use only speakers with a nominal impedance of 8 . Refer to the instructions that came with your speakers if you are unsure of their impedance before connecting them and switching on.

Placing the speakers

Ideally, the satellite speakers should be at about ear-level when you’re listening to them. Putting them on the floor, or mounting them very high on a wall is not recommended. For the best stereo effect, place the speakers 2–3 meters (6–9 feet) apart.

Placement of the subwoofer is not as critical as the satellite speakers because bass sounds are much less directional then middle and treble sounds. However, bear the following points in mind when choosing a suitable location.

The subwoofer can be placed on top of the amplifier.

As with other audio components, don’t place the subwoofer near heaters, radiators or other appliances that generate heat.

Although you have some freedom in placement, experiment with different subwoofer locations — some will sound better than others from your usual listening position.

Don’t use the amplifier/subwoofer on a thick rug or carpet as this can also cause ventilation problems.

Note: Avoid touching the actual speaker cone when installing or moving the subwoofer.

Wall-mounting your system

If you prefer, you can hang the satellite speakers and/or the CD-tuner (together with the optional tape deck, MD recorder and CD-Recorder) on a wall. (Screws and other fixings are not supplied.)

Make sure of the following when wall-mounting any equipment:

The wall is strong enough to support the weight.

The screws are suitable for the wall material (concrete, wood, etc.), and are long enough to support the weight.

You’ll still be able to easily operate the system using the remote control or the top panel controls.

You fix all the required screws (2 for each speaker; 4 for the CD tuner and other components). Using fewer than this may make the system unstable, causing an accident.

After finding a suitable location, stick the supplied paper pattern on the wall. This makes putting the screws in the correct place very easy.

If you’re wall-mounting the CD-tuner (or other optional components), attach only Stand A. If wall-mount the satellite speakers, do not attach the speaker stands.

The diagram below shows the dimensions for the screws you’ll need.

3.5mm

10mm

After fixing the screws, hang the speakers and/or other components on the wall.

Important

Pioneer bears no responsibility for accidents resulting from faulty assembly or installation, insufficient mounting strength of walls or other building fixtures, misuse or natural disasters.

2 Connecting Up

Connecting the AM and FM antennas

Connecting the supplied antennas will allow you to listen to both AM and FM radio broadcasts. If you find that reception quality is poor, an outdoor antenna should give you better sound quality—see Connecting external antennas on the following page for more on how to do this.

Before making or changing antenna connections, make sure that the power is switched off and the unit disconnected from the AC wall outlet.

Slide off the top cover to access the antenna terminals and the auxiliary inputs. (AUX IN)

Press down on the center of the topcover while sliding off.

2 Connecting Up

(Illustration shows UK model)

For best results, extend the FM antenna fully and fix to a wall or door frame. Don’t drape loosely or leave it coiled up. The supplied FM antenna is a simple means of receiving FM stations; using a dedicated, outdoor FM antenna will usually give you better reception and sound quality. See below for connection details.

3Slide on the top panel cover.

The top panel cover has slots to accommodate the antenna wires.

4Point the AM antenna in the direction giving the best reception.

Avoid placing near computers, television sets or other electrical appliances, and do not let it come into contact with metal objects.

Note: The signal earth (H) is designed to reduce noise that occurs when an antenna is connected. It is not an electrical safety earth.

FM wire antenna

The kind of FM antenna supplied depends on the region in which you live.

1Plug in the FM wire antenna (UK model only).

(Illustration shows UK model)

2Connect the FM wire antenna in the same way as the AM antenna (non-UK models).

(Illustration shows non-UK model)

Connecting external antennas

If you find reception quality is poor with the supplied indoor antennas, try connecting outdoor antennas (not supplied).

External AM antenna

Use 5–6 meters of vinyl-insulated wire and set up either indoors or outdoors. Leave the AM loop antenna connected.

Power cord caution

Handle the power cord by the plug part. 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, or other object on the power cord or pinch the cord in any other way. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other cords. The power cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be stepped on. A damaged power cord can cause a fire or give you an electric shock. Check the power cord once in a while. If you find it damaged, ask your nearest Pioneer authorized service center or your dealer for a replacement.

Ventilation

For ventilation purposes, leave at least 15 cm (6 inches) of free space at the rear of the unit, 10 cm (3.5 inches) either side, and 20 cm (7 inches) above.

4 Getting Started

Using menus

Many of the features of this system are accessed from menus displayed in the CD tuner’s fluorescent display. The advantage of this is that you can use many of the features using just four buttons: MENU to display the first menu option; 4and ¢to change the displayed option; and SET to select it.

MENU

1Switch on.

You can use the button on the remote control or STANDBY/ON button on the top panel of the CD/tuner unit.

Different menu options appear depending on which component you're listening to; CD, radio, tape, MD, or a component connected to the auxiliary inputs.

There’s another menu, the TIMER menu, which is available in any mode. From the timer menu you can set the clock, as well as use the wake up, record and sleep timer features. To display this menu, use the TIMER button instead of the MENU button.

Switching on and setting the clock

You should now have your system installed with everything connected up and plugged in. This chapter takes you through using the basic features: playing CDs and tapes, listening to radio stations, and adjusting the volume, tone and balance to get the sound you want.

First of all, we'll set the clock. This is mainly used for timer functions, such as the sleep timer, though you can also use the display as a clock. Unless you unplug the unit, or there's a power failure, you only need to set the clock once.

The display lights and briefly indicates the current volume level before showing the current function (e.g. CD).

2Select CLOCK ADJUST from the timer menu.

Press TIMER to display the timer menu, then press 4or ¢until CLOCK ADJUST is shown in the display, then press SET.

The display changes to show a date and time, with the day* part of the date blinking to indicate that you can set it.

In some areas, the date is shown as year/month/day, with the year part blinking.

3Use the 4and ¢buttons to set the day, then press SET.

Once you’ve pressed SET, the month will start blinking.

4In the same way, set the rest of the date and time.

Each time you press SET, the next part of the date/time will start blinking. Adjust using the 4and ¢buttons.

Pressing SET after setting the minute completes the clock setup.

4 Getting Started

Remember

If power is interrupted, the clock display will flash until you reset it to the correct time. To use the timer features, always set the clock to the correct time.

Don’t touch the lens!

Tip

You can display the clock in either 12 or 24-hour format. See page 37 for how to change it.

• Press SYSTEM DISP in standby mode to show the day and time. The display remains until you hit the power button.

Using RDS (UK model only)

Radio Data System, or RDS as it's usually known, is a system used by FM radio stations to provide listeners with various information—the name of the station and the kind of show they're broadcasting, for example. This information shows up as text on the display, and you can switch between the kind of information shown. Although you don't get RDS information from all FM radio stations, you do with most.

Probably the most useful feature of RDS is that you can search automatically by type of program. So, if you felt like listening to jazz, you could have the MT search for a station that's broadcasting a show with the program type, "JAZZ." There are around 30 such program types, including various genres of music, news, sport, talk shows, financial information, and so on.

This unit let's you display three different kinds of RDS information: Radio Text, Program Service Name, and Program Type.

Radio Text (RT) is a message sent by the radio station. It can be anything the broadcaster chooses—a talk radio station might give out its telephone number as RT, for example.

Program Service Name (PS) is the name of the radio station.

Program Type (PTY) indicates the kind of program currently being broadcast.

Playing a tape (UK model only)

The tape deck features auto-reverse, Dolby B NR (noise reduction) and auto tape select. The auto-reverse feature lets you play or record both sides of the tape without physically taking it out and turning it over. Dolby B NR reduces tape hiss on tapes recorded using Dolby NR (which includes almost all commercially recorded tapes). Auto tape select means that the deck automatically detects the type of tape you're playing — normal (type I) or high-position/CrO2 (type II) — so there's no need to check the tape type and switch manually. Here, we'll run through the basic tape deck controls; instructions for other features, such as recording, start on page 28.

if the recording is particularly noisy so the spaces are not recognized

if the recording contains frequent silences, such as a language study tape.

if the recording contains sections of very quiet material, such as some classical music recordings

6To stop the tape, press 7.

Tip

If there's already a tape in the deck, then pressing the TAPE button — even when the system is in standby mode — will switch the system on and start the tape playing.

Setting the reverse mode

The tape deck can play both sides of a tape without you having to take the cassette out and turning it over by hand. This feature is called auto-reverse (because to play the other side of the tape, the tape travels in the opposite direction).

You can switch sides any time while playing a tape by pressing the tape button. The reverse mode, however, tells the deck what to do when it reaches the end of the tape on the side it's playing. There are two modes: endless and one-way.

7 Using the Tape Deck

7 Using the Tape Deck

Making tape recordings (UK

model only)

You can make tape recordings from any other component in the system, and also from an external component connected to the auxiliary inputs. If you're recording from CD or the optional CD-Recorder, it's usually most convenient to use the synchro-recording mode. This makes the process largely automatic with the system starting and stopping the recording for you. Detailed instructions for this are below. If you're recording from the tuner or from a component connected to the auxiliary inputs, use the manual recording mode explained on page 29.

Once recording has started, you can't switch to another component until either the recording has stopped, or you pause the recording. So, for example, you can't switch over to the tuner while you're recording a CD.

Unlike some tape decks, there's no need to set recording levels — the deck sets the right level automatically. Also, when recording, the volume, tone and balance controls have no effect on the recording. This means that you can record something with the volume turned right down, if you want.

Before recording, check that the cassette erase tabs have not been broken, and that the tape is either a type I (normal position) or type II (high position/CrO2)—you can't record on type IV (metal) tapes using this deck.

If you're recording from the start of a tape, it's a good idea to wind the tape on a little so that you don't accidently start recording over the leader tape. You can either do this by hand, or load the tape into the deck and play the tape for 5–6 seconds.

Recording CDs

This feature makes recording a CD as simple as possible by automatically starting and stopping the CD and tape together. There are two modes: 1 track synchro records just a single track, then stops; all tracks synchro records the whole disc.

In order to follow these instructions more easily, load the cassette with side A facing you.

If you need to change the direction, press TAPE twice, then

7.

3Set the auto-reverse mode.

If you set this to one-way, then recording will stop after reaching the end of the current side. If it's set to endless, then recording will continue onto the other side of the tape. However, if you start recording in the reverse direction, (2) only that side of the tape will be recorded.

For detailed instructions on setting the reverse mode, see page 27.

4Turn Dolby NR on or off as required.

Using Dolby NR improves the sound quality of tape recordings that are going to be played on Dolby NR equipped players. If the tape is not going to be played on a Dolby NR equipped player (or if you're not sure), you should leave Dolby NR off.

See page 27 for detailed instructions on switching Dolby NR on/off.

9 Additional Information

Care information

Handling discs

When holding CDs, take care not to leave fingerprints, dirt or scratches on the disc surface. Hold the disc by its edge or by the center hole and edge. Damaged or dirty discs can affect playback performance. Take care also not to scratch the label side of the disc. Although not as fragile as the recorded side, scratches can still result in a disc becoming unusable.

Should a disc become marked with fingerprints, dust, etc., clean using a soft, dry cloth, wiping the disc lightly from the center to the outside edge as shown below. If necessary, use a cloth soaked in alcohol, or a commercially available CD cleaning kit to clean a disc more thoroughly. Never use benzine, thinner or other cleaning agents, including products designed for cleaning vinyl records.

Wipe lightly from the center of the disc using straight strokes.

Don’t wipe the disc surface using circular strokes.

Storing discs

Although CDs are more durable than vinyl records, you should still take care to handle and store discs correctly. When you're not using a disc, return it to its case and store upright. Avoid leaving discs in excessively cold, humid, or hot environments (including under direct sunlight).

Don't glue paper or put stickers on discs, or write on them using a pencil, ball-point pen or other sharp-tipped writing instrument.

Discs you should avoid

CDs spin at high speed inside the player during playback. If you can see that a disc is cracked, chipped, warped, or otherwise damaged, don't risk using it in your CD player — you could end up damaging the unit.

This system is designed for use with conventional, fully circular CDs only. Use of shaped CDs is not recommended. Pioneer disclaims all liability arising in connection with the use of shaped CDs.

Using cassette tapes

The tape of a cassette is quite easily damaged and loose tape can jam in the tape deck mechanism. If the tape has become unwound, use a pen or pencil to wind it back on to the spool.

When not using cassettes, always store in the case. Store cassettes away from magnetic fields, excessive heat, humidity, dust or oil.

Before recording on a tape, wind the tape on past the leader tape (about the first 3 or 4 seconds of each side).

Tapes you should avoid

Since tapes longer than 90 minutes are so thin, they are more susceptible to jamming in the tape deck mechanism and other trouble such as irregular winding. Avoid using cassette tapes longer than 90 minutes.

34

Erase protection

You can protect an important recording against accidental erasure by breaking the erase-protect tab(s) with a small screwdriver.

Erase-protect tab

Erase-protect tab

If you want to re-record on an erase-protected cassette, cover the space left by the broken tab with self-adhesive tape.

Tape-type hole

Note: If you're using Type II (High/CrO2) tapes, make sure you don't also cover the tape-type detection holes.

Cleaning external surfaces

To clean this unit, wipe with a soft, dry cloth. For stubborn dirt, wet a soft cloth with a mild detergent solution made by diluting one part detergent to 5 or 6 parts water, wring well, then wipe off the dirt. Use a dry cloth to wipe the surface dry. Do not use volatile liquids such as benzene and thinner which may damage the surfaces.

9 Additional Information

Be careful: Some cassette head cleaners are not designed to work with auto-reverse decks and may become jammed in the mechanism — ask your Pioneer authorized service centre for details.

After using the head cleaner, leave the unit for 2–3 minutes before playing a tape. This will give any excess cleaning fluid a chance to dry.

Demagnetizing the tape head

The recording/playback head in the tape deck gradually becomes magnetized after long periods of use. Playback and recording quality will suffer as a result, with a lack of treble and increased noise. To avoid the problem, we recommend using a head demagnetizer at regular intervals. These are available from any good audio dealer.

When using a head demagnetizer, be sure to turn the volume right down and unplug any headphones to avoid damaging the unit or the speakers. For further details, refer to the instructions that came with the head demagnetizer.

Magnetic shielding of speakers

The satellite speakers are magnetically shielded. This means that they can safely be placed near a TV or monitor without distorting the picture.

The subwoofer is not magnetically shielded. If it is placed very near a TV or monitor, you may see color distortion in the picture. Switch off the TV for about 30 minutes and move the subwoofer further away from the television to solve the problem.

Moving the unit

If you need to move the unit, first switch it off and unplug from the wall outlet. Avoid lifting or moving the unit during playback or recording.

CD lens cleaner

The CD pickup lens should not become dirty in normal use, but if for some reason it should malfunction due to dirt or dust, consult your nearest Pioneer authorized service center. Although lens cleaners for CD players are commercially available, we do not recommend using them since some may damage the lens.

Tape head cleaner

To maintain the recording/playback quality of the tape deck, use a commercially available wet-type cassette head cleaner. Avoid using dry-type cassette head cleaners.

Removing/replacing the satellite speaker grilles

You can use the satellite speakers with or without the grilles.

To remove:

1Gently pull the bottom half of the grille away from the speaker.

2Pull away the top half to completely remove the grille.

To put back on:

1Line up the grille with the holes in each corner of the speaker

2Push the grille back on.
