surface and point in the direction
giving the best reception.
Don’t let it come into contact with metal
objects and avoid placing near computers,
television sets or other electrical appliances.
Connect the FM wire antenna to the FM UNBAL 75Ω antenna terminal.
For best results, extend the FM antenna fully and fix to a wall or door
frame. Don’t drape loosely or leave coiled up.
The signal earth (H) is designed to reduce noise that occurs when an
antenna is connected. It is not an electrical safety earth.
When connecting this system or changing connections, be sure to switch the power off with the STANDBY/ON button, and disconnect the power cord from the AC outlet.

Using the remote control
The remote control can be used within a range of about 7
meters from the remote sensor on the front panel, and
within a 30 degree angle.
• The remote control may not work if there is an obstacle
between the remote control and the display unit, or if the
remote control is not directed towards the remote sensor
of the display unit at the correct angle.
• The remote control may not work properly if strong
light such as direct sunlight or fluorescent light is shining
onto the unit’s remote sensor.
• The remote control may not work properly when this
unit is used near devices emitting infrared rays, or when
remote controls of other devices which use infrared rays
are used. Also, the use of this remote control may cause
other devices to work improperly.
• When the operating range of the remote becomes too
short, replace the batteries.
Remote control battery caution
Incorrect use of batteries may cause leakage or
Always be sure to follow these guidelines:
• Always insert batteries into the battery compartment
correctly matching the positive ª and negative ·
polarities, as shown by the display inside the
• Never mix new and used batteries.
• Batteries of the same size may have different voltages,
depending on brand. Do not mix different brands of
• When disposing of used batteries, please comply with
governmental regulations or environmental public
instruction's rules that apply in your country or area.
• In order to prevent battery leakage, remove the
batteries when not using the remote control for an
extended period (one month or more). If leakage occurs,
carefully wipe away any battery fluid inside the
compartment, and replace the batteries with new ones.
• Do not allow books or other objects to rest on top of
the remote control, since the buttons may be depressed,
causing faster exhaustion of the batteries.
Additional notes on connecting antennas
• Keep antenna cables away from other cables and the
display unit and main set.
• To assure optimum reception, pull the FM antenna so that
it is fully extended and not coiled or hanging at the rear of
• If reception with the supplied antenna is poor, see the
Other Connections section in the main operating
instructions for details on connecting outdoor antennas.
Additional notes on speaker placement
If your listening room is of adequate size, place the
speakers as shown in step 3 to achieve the optimum
surround sound effect. If you are listening in a fairly small
room and a typical surround speaker setup is not possible,
see Home Theater sound setup of the instruction manual
and the speaker setup guide for information on the Front
Surround speaker setup option.
When using the standard speaker setup as shown in step
3, please observe the following guidelines:
• Install the main front left and right speakers at an equal
distance from the TV.
• For optimum effect, install the rear speakers slightly
above ear level.
• Install the center speaker above or below the TV so that
the sound of the center channel is localized at the TV
• When installing the center speaker on top of the TV, be
sure to secure it with tape or some other suitable means.
Otherwise, the speaker may fall from the TV due to
external shocks such as earthquakes, endangering those
nearby or damaging the speaker.
• Do not connect the supplied speakers with any other
amplifier. This may result in malfunction or fire.
The front, center and surround speakers supplied
with this system are magnetically shielded. However,
placing them extremely close to a television may
result in color distortion on the screen. If this
happens, move the speakers a little further away and
switch off the television for 15-30 minutes.
The subwoofer is not magnetically shielded and so
should not be placed near a TV or monitor.
Since it is not magnetically shielded, do not place
any magnetic storage media (such as floppy disks
and tape or video cassettes) close to the subwoofer.
Connect the other end to the video output of the DVD/CD receiver.
This player is equipped with copy protection technology. Do not connect this
player to your TV via a VCR using AV cables, as the picture from this player will not
appear properly on your TV.
