Hints on speaker placement

The following guidelines will help you to get the best performance from your speaker system. See Home theater sound setup on page 23 for surround placement options with this system.

Place the front left and right speakers at equal distances from the TV.

Place the center speaker above or below the TV so that the sound of the center channel is localized at the TV screen.

Caution

If you choose to install the center speaker on top of the TV, be sure to secure it with putty, or by other suitable means, to reduce the risk of damage or injury resulting from the speaker falling from the TV in the event of external shocks such as earthquakes.

If possible, place the surround speakers slightly above ear level.

9

En

02 Connecting up

Try not to place the surround speakers further away from the listening position than the front and center speakers. Doing so can weaken the surround sound effect.

Be sure all speakers are installed securely to prevent accidents and improve sound quality.

Attaching the surround speakers to the speaker stands

EV700/1000 model only

If you have set up your system using the Front surround 3-spot setup (as explained in Home theater sound setup on page 23), it is necessary to use the speaker stands provided. Using the speaker stands for the Standard surround 5- spot setup is optional. Attach each speaker as shown in the steps below.

1Line up the spurs on the speaker stand with the holes on the back of the surround speaker and press into place.

2With the spurs fixed in place, pull the speaker downward to secure it on the stand.

About the listening modes

As explained in Home theater sound setup on page 23, there are two basic surround speaker setup options available. Of course you can select any of the listening modes regardless of how you place your speakers, but you will achieve the best surround effect by using the listening modes in conjunction with your speaker setup:

Standard surround 5-spot setup – Use the Standard (Listening in surround sound on page 25) and Advanced (Using Advanced Surround on page 26) surround listening modes1 with this setup.

Front surround 3-spot setup – See Using Front Surround on page 26 for the options1 available with this speaker setup.

Make sure you have completed Setting the channel levels on page 23. For a more detailed surround sound setup, see Choosing your surround settings on page 24.

Listening in surround sound

You can listen to stereo or multichannel sources in surround sound. Surround sound is generated from stereo sources using one of the Dolby Pro Logic decoding modes.

Making tape recordings

You can make tape recordings from the radio, CDs, or from an external component

connected to the auxiliary inputs.1 If you're recording from CD it’s convenient to use the ASES mode—see Automatically recording CDs (ASES) below.

Unlike some tape decks, there’s no need to set recording levels; the deck sets the level automatically. When recording, the volume has no effect on the recording. This means that you can record something with the volume turned right down if you want.

1 Press TAPE then load a cassette into the tape deck.

In order to follow these instructions more

easily, load the cassette2 with side A facing up, then use the front panel controls.

2 Check the recording direction.

If you start recording in the direction, both sides of the tape can be recorded (unless the erase protect tab for side B is missing). If you switch sides and start recording in the direction, then recording will start from side B and stop when the end of the tape is reached.

If you need to change the direction, press ( ) twice, then (stop).

3Set the reverse mode (page 34).

(record one side only)

• or (record both sides if recording starts in the (forward) direction, or one side if recording starts in the (reverse) direction)

4Select the source you want to record.

For example, press TUNER (FM/AM on the remote) to record from the radio. If you’ve selected a CD, make sure that it’s stopped. You can’t record while TAPE is selected.

5Prepare the source for recording.

For example, tune in the radio station.

6 Press REC/STOP (front panel only).

The REC indicator lights in the display and the deck starts recording.

7Start the source playing (if necessary).

8When you’re ready to stop recording, press REC/STOP again.

Automatically recording CDs (ASES)

Auto Synchro Editing System (ASES for short)

makes recording CDs3 (including those with WMA/MP3 audio files) automatic. It also makes sure that a CD track isn’t spread over two sides of a tape.

If the tape runs out midway through a CD track, the same track is automatically recorded from

the beginning again on the other side.4

1 Prepare the tape deck for recording.

Recording starts in the (forward) direction, so take care which way you load the tape.

2 Load the CD you want to record.

3 Press DVD/CD, then press (stop).

The CD should now be selected, but not playing.

Español Nederlands Italiano Français Deutsch English

Note

1• Once recording has started, you can’t switch to another component until recording has stopped. So, for example, you can’t switch over to the tuner while you’re recording a CD.

EV700/1000 model only – During recording, all multichannel sources are downmixed to two channels.

2• Before recording, check that the cassette erase-protect tabs have not been broken, and that the tape is Type I (normal position). You can’t record on Type II (high/CrO2) or 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.

3You can’t make ASES tape recordings of Video CD/Super VCDs or DVD-Video discs.

4ASES may not work correctly if the first side of the tape finishes at the same time as a track ends. If this happens, stop the recording then resume on the other side without ASES.

35

En

08 Using the tape deck

If you want to record the tracks in a different order, or record only one track, use the program play feature—see page 31 for how to make a program list. Make sure playback is stopped, then press PROGRAM (SHIFT+1) before going to the next step.

4 Press ASES to start recording.

The ASES REC indicator lights, followed by a 4 second pause while the tape winds past the leader, then recording starts.

Recording finishes automatically when the end of the disc is reached, or the tape ends (whichever comes first).

5 If you want to stop recording before the end of the CD, press (stop).

Tip

If you find that you’re getting noisy recordings from an AM radio station, see

Optional system settings on page 48 to change the beat cut mode.

If you find that the auxiliary source signal is too high (resulting in unpleasant distortion in your recording), you may need to reduce the signal level of the line source by switching on the attenuator (see Optional system settings on page 48 to do this).

Hold the disc by its edges when handling so as not to leave fingerprints, dirt or scratches on either side of the disc. Damaged or dirty discs can affect playback performance.

If a disc becomes marked with fingerprints, dust, etc., clean using a soft, dry cloth.

Wipe lightly from the center of the disc using straight strokes. Don’t wipe the disc surface with circular strokes.

If necessary, use a cloth soaked in alcohol, or a commercially available CD/DVD cleaning kit to clean a disc more thoroughly. Never use benzine, thinner or other cleaning agents such as those designed for cleaning vinyl records.

Storing discs

Avoid leaving discs in excessively cold, humid, or hot environments (including under direct sunlight). Don't glue paper or put stickers onto the disc, or use a pencil, ball-point pen or other sharp-tipped writing instrument. These could all damage the disc.

Discs to avoid

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

This unit is designed for use with conventional, fully circular discs only. Pioneer disclaims all liability arising in connection with the use of shaped discs.

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.

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

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.

Protecting your recordings

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

Installation and maintenance

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 location:

Do...

Use in a well-ventilated room.

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

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.

Place directly on top of an amplifier, or other component in your stereo system that becomes hot in use.

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 system unit.

Place on an unstable surface, or one that is not large enough to support all four of the system unit’s feet.

Cleaning the pickup lens

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

Problems with condensation

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 this won’t damage the player, it may temporarily impair performance. You should leave it to adjust to the warmer temperature for about an hour before switching on.

Moving the system unit

If you need to move the main unit, first remove a disc if there’s one in the player, then press STANDBY/ON on the front panel to turn the system off. Wait for GOOD BYE to disappear

from the display, then unplug the power cord.1 Never lift or move the unit during playback— discs rotate at high speeds and may damage.

Resetting the system

Use this procedure to reset all system settings to the factory default. Use the front panel controls to do this.

1 Switch the system into standby.

2

Press and hold the (stop) button for

about 7 seconds until the display shows

‘MEM.CLR?’

 

Use

or

to select it if it does not show

in the display.

 

3

Screen sizes and disc formats

DVD-Video discs come in different screen aspects, ranging from TV programs, which are generally 4:3, to CinemaScope widescreen

movies1, with an aspect ratio of up to about 7:3.

Televisions also come in different aspect ratios; ‘standard’ 4:3 and widescreen 16:9.2

Set to 4:3 (Letter Box), widescreen discs are shown with black bars top and bottom.

Set to 4:3 (Pan&Scan), widescreen discs are shown with the left and right sides cropped. Although the picture looks larger, you don’t actually see the whole picture.

Using the language code list

Some of the language options (see Language settings on page 45) allow you to set your preferred language from any of the 136 languages listed in the Language code list.

1Select ‘Other Language’.

2Use / (cursor left/right) to select either a code letter or a code number.

3Use / (cursor up/down) to select a code letter or a code number.

See the Language code list (next page) for a complete list of languages and codes.

Note

1Many widescreen discs override the system’s settings so that the disc is shown in letterbox format regardless of the setting.

2• Using the 16:9 (Wide) setting with a standard 4:3 TV, or one of the4:3 settings with a widescreen TV, will result in distortion.

When you watch discs recorded in 4:3 format, you can use the TV controls to select how the picture is presented. Your TV may offer various zoom and stretch options; see the instructions that came with your TV for details.

Some movie aspect ratios are wider than 16:9, so even with a widescreen TV, these discs will still play in a ‘letterbox’ style.
