Setting up the system
Make connections as shown in the following pages.
When connecting the related system components, be
sure to refer to the instruction manuals supplied with
the components you are connecting.
Do not connect the power cord to a wall outlet until all
connections are completed.
1. Be sure to insert all connection cords securely. If their connections are
imperfect, the sound may not be produced or there will be noise
2. Be sure to remove the power cord from the AC outlet before plugging
or unplugging any connection cords. Plugging/unplugging connection
cords without disconnecting the power cord can cause malfunctions
and may damage the unit.
3. Do not connect power cords from components whose power
consumption is larger than what is indicated on the AC outlet at the
rear of this unit.
Analog connections
Audio connections are made using RCA pin cords. These cables transfer
stereo audio signal in an “analog” form. This means the audio signal
corresponds to the actual audio of two channels. These cables usually
have 2 plugs at each end, red for the right channel and white for the left
channel. These cables are usually packed together with the source unit,
or are available at your local electronics retailer.
Microcomputer malfunction
If operation is not possible or an erroneous display appears, even
though all connections have been made properly, reset the
microcomputer by referring to “In case of difficulty”. º

signals automatically. Priority is given to digital signal during input
mode selection. This model will select the input mode and listening

factory setting is full auto.

In D-MANUAL mode, if the audio reproduction stops in the middle
due to change in the input signals etc, press the LISTEN MODE key.
If the INPUT MODE key is pressed quickly, sound may not be
produced. Press the INPUT MODE key again.
