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.

2If you plan to use your speakers on a table-top or shelf, pass the free end of each speaker cable through the speaker stand.

See the diagram under step 3, below.

3Insert the speaker wires into the terminals on the rear of each speaker.

Connect the white half of the cable to the black (–) terminals, and the grey striped half to the red (+) terminals. To open a terminal, press down on the tab. Insert the wire, then release the tab to secure it.

4If you are going to use the speakers on the stands, slot the stand into place.

If you plan to wall-mount the speakers, see Wall-mounting your system on page 9.

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.
