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).

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).

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.

POWER-CORD CAUTION

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.

If you want to dispose this product, do not mix it with general household waste. There is a separate collection system for used electronic products in accordance with legislation that requires proper treatment, recovery and recycling.

Private households in the member states of the EU, in Switzerland and Norway may return their used electronic products free of charge to designated collection facilities or to a retailer (if you purchase a similar new one).

For countries not mentioned above, please contact your local authorities for the correct method of disposal.

By doing so you will ensure that your disposed product undergoes the necessary treatment, recovery and recycling and thus prevent potential negative effects on the environment and human health.

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 MOULDED PLUG

This appliance is supplied with a moulded three pin mains plug for your safety and convenience. A 5 amp fuse is fitted in this plug. Should the fuse need to be replaced, please ensure that the replacement fuse has a rating of 5 amps and that it is approved by ASTA or BSI to BS1362.

If the fitted moulded plug is unsuitable for your socket outlet, then the fuse shall be removed and the plug cut off and disposed of safely. There is a danger of severe electrical shock if the cut off plug is inserted into any 13 amp socket.

If a new plug is to be fitted, please observe the wiring code as shown below. If in any doubt, please consult a qualified electrician.

IMPORTANT: The wires in this 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 appliance 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.

Speaker Setup Guide

Safety precautions when setting up

When assembling the speakers, lay them down flat on their side to avoid accidents or injury. Make sure to use a stable surface when assembling, setting up, and placing the speakers.

Home theater sound setup

Depending on the size and characteristics of your room, you can place your speakers in one of two ways using this system.

Standard surround setup

This is a standard multichannel surround sound speaker setup for optimal 5.1 channel home theater sound.

Preparing the speakers

This unit comes with speaker bases that can be used to adjust the speakers to the design of the room in which they are placed.

Using the supplied speaker bases

1 Attach the non-skid pads to the speaker bases, as shown below.

Use the adhesive side of the pads to attach them to the base of each speaker base.

2 Attach the speaker bases.

Place the speaker atop a supplied speaker base, and fix the base in place by using one of the supplied screws.

The supplied speaker bases come in two different shapes. You can determine the correct base for a speaker by checking if the screw’s location lines up correctly when the speaker is placed atop the base. (There are specific bases for the front/center (L) and surround speaker (R), and for the front/center (R) and surround speaker (L), with two of each type included.)

When not using the supplied speaker bases

• Attach the non-skid pads to the base of each of the front/center and surround speakers (as shown).

Use the adhesive side of the pads to attach them to the base of each speaker.

01

Connect the speaker system

Refer to Connecting up to connect the speakers properly. After connecting everything, place the speakers as shown in the diagram above for optimal surround sound. After placing the speakers, run the Auto MCACC setup (page 30) to complete your surround sound setup.

Additional notes on speaker placement

Install the main front left and right speakers at an equal distance from the TV.

When using the Standard surround setup, install the surround speakers slightly above ear level for optimum effect.

When using the Front surround setup, separate the left and right speakers by about 1.5 m for optimum effect.

Precautions:

Do not place the speaker on an unstable surface, as doing so may cause the speaker to fall and cause damage or bodily injury.

All speakers supplied with this system are magnetically shielded. However, depending on the installation location, colour distortion may occur if a speaker is installed extremely close to the screen of a television set. If this happens, turn the power switch of the television set OFF, and turn it ON after 15 min to 30 min. If the problem persists, place the speaker system away from the television set.

For safety, make sure that there is no exposed bare speaker wire outside of the speaker terminals.

Do not connect the supplied speakers with any other amplifier. This may result in malfunction or fire.

Do not connect any speakers other than those supplied to this system.

The speaker system grill cannot be removed. Do not try to forcibly remove it since doing so may damage the grille.

When cleaning the cabinet, use the provided cleaning cloth.

Do not allow alcohol, thinner, benzene, or insecticides to come into contact with the surface, since finish discoloration may occur.

Also, when using chemically impregnated cleaning cloths, follow their precautions carefully.

Caution

These speaker terminals carry HAZARDOUS LIVE voltage. To prevent the risk of electric shock when connecting or disconnecting the speaker cables, disconnect the power cord before touching any uninsulated parts.

Do not connect any speakers other than those supplied to this system.

Do not connect the supplied speakers to any amplifier other than the one supplied with this system. Connection to any other amplifier may result in malfunction or fire.

After connecting the plugs, pull lightly on the cables to make sure that the ends of the cables are securely connected to the terminals. Poor connections can create noise and interruptions in the sound.

If the cables’ wires happen to be pushed out of the terminals, allowing the wires to come into contact with each other, it places an excessive additional load on the amp. This may cause the amp to stop functioning, and may even damage the amp.

Putting the batteries in the remote control

1Open the battery compartment cover on the back of the remote control.

2Insert four AA/LR6 alkaline batteries into the battery compartment following the indications ( , ) inside the compartment.

Using the remote control

Please keep in mind the following when using the remote control:

Make sure that there are no obstacles between the remote and the remote sensor on the unit.

Remote operation may become unreliable if strong sunlight or fluorescent light is shining on the unit’s remote sensor.

Remote controllers for different devices can interfere with each other. Avoid using remotes for other equipment located close to this unit.

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

Use within the operating range in front of the remote control sensor on the display unit, as shown.

3 Close the cover.

Caution

Incorrect use of batteries can result in hazards such as leakage and bursting. Please observe the following:

Don’t mix new and old batteries together.

Don’t use different kinds of battery together — although they may look similar, different batteries may have different voltages.

Make sure that the plus and minus ends of each battery match the indications in the battery compartment.

Remove batteries from equipment that isn’t going to be used for a month or more.

When disposing of used batteries, please comply with governmental regulations or environmental public instruction’s rules that apply in your country /area.

WARNING

Do not use or store batteries in direct sunlight or other excessively hot place, such as inside a car or near a heater. This can cause batteries to leak, overheat, explode or catch fire. It can also reduce the life or performance of batteries.
