The following will help you get the most enjoyment from your DVD receiver system.

BEST LOCATION

     The  unit  should  be  placed  on  a  firm,  flat   surface,  away  from VCRs, stereos, radios, or large 
speakers, as the magnetic flux from these devices  may  cause  distortion  in  the  sound  and  a  poor 
picture. If placed in a cabinet, be sure there is at least  1  of free  space  completely  around  the  unit 
for proper ventilation.

TO OBTAIN A CLEAR PICTURE

     A DVD receiver is a precision device.  If the optical pick-up lens and disc drive  parts  become dirty 
or worn down, picture quality will become poor.  Store DVD player in a clean dust free environment.

PLAYABLE DISCS

     This DVD receiver system will play the following types  of  discs:  DVD,  MP3,  CD,  CD-R,  and 
CD-RW with super-error correction ability. It is also capable of displaying picture CDs and digital 
photo albums. It supports eight languages,   up to 32 subtitles,  and multi-angle  viewing.  It  features 
easy setup and operation with on-screen menus. It has full function CPU up grade able capability.

DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT

     The unit's coaxial output capability enables you to connect an  external  six-channel  AV  amplifier 
and processor with built-in Dolby Digital code  with  just  one cord. This enables you to conveniently 
enjoy different DVD, CD, and Mp3 discs.

ANALOG AUDIO OUTPUT

     Speaker  system  plug-and-play  convenience  through  the  built-in  six-channel  power  amplifier 
eliminates the use of an external power amplifier. 

LASER-HEAD OVER-CURRENT 
PROTECTION  SYSTEM

      To  extend  the  service  life  of  the laser head, the unit includes a unique laser-head over-current 
protection system, ensuring a constant  laser current.

Notes:

         Do  not  direct  the  remote  sensor toward 

         any light source, such as direct sunlight or 

         a strong fluorescent light, as it may cause 

         the unit to not operate correctly. 

         When  other   remote   controls   are  used 

         nearby  or  when  the  remote is used near 

         

equipment using infrared rays, interference

 

         may occur.

         Placing  an  object  on  the remote control 

         may  cause  it  to  inadvertently depress a 

         button, changing a function and shortening 

         battery life.

         Do not glaze the front of the DVD receiver 

         with   colored   glass,   as   it   may   cause 

         interference with normal operation  of  the 

         controller.

         Make sure there is no barrier between the 

         remote control and  remote  sensor,  as  it 

         could prevent the unit from  receiving  the 

         signal.

         Do not spill water or put wet items  on  the 

         remote control. 

         Never disassemble remote control.

BATTERIES

    INCORRECT USE    OF   BATTERIES   MAY 

CAUSE THEM TO LEAK, CORRODE  OR  EXP

LODE.

Battery Installation

1. Push down and out on  the  battery  Compart-

    ment cover to remove it.

2. Insert the two  AAA  batteries into the battery 

    compartment of the  remote  control,  making 

    sure  the + and - signs  on  the  batteries  and 

    inside  the battery compartment match up.

3. Replace the battery compartment cover.

Notes:

         Do  not  mix batteries from different manu-

         facturers, nor old ones with new.

         If the remote control will not be used for an 

         extended   period   of   time,   remove   the 

         batteries    to    prevent    damage-causing 

         corrosion.

         Remove  dead   batteries  immediately   to 

         prevent damage-causing corrosion. 

         If battery leakage occurs, wipe the battery 

         liquid from the battery compartment,  then 

         replace both batteries.

         Always replace both batteries at the same 

         time, using new, fully charged batteries.

         Life   expectancy  of   batteries   may  vary 

         depending on amount of use.

Using the Remote Control

    Point the remote control at the remote sensor 

on  the  DVD  receiver.    When    the    signal  is 

received from the remote control,  the unit will  

function accordingly. The remote will operate to 

approximately 16' from the remote sensor at an 

0

angle of around 30  each direction.

       Connection  terminals  for  this DVD receiver 
       are found on the rear panel.   Read  carefully 
       and  follow  the  manufacturers'  instructions 
       of   any   video   and    audio    device    being 
       connected to this unit.
 
       

Do not connect the power until all connections

 

       have been properly completed.
    

       Red terminal (marked R) is for connecting the 
       right channel. The white terminal  (marked L) 
       is for connecting the left channel.  The yellow 
       terminal is for video connection.   Make  sure 
       all connections are securely made. Improper

Front or main right and left speakers; 
center speaker

     These   three   speakers   provide   extensive 
sound imaging and augment the dynamic  effect
of the audio. A movie's principal dialogue comes 
through these speakers.

Rear or surround sound speakers

      These  two  speakers  provide  3-D  dynamic
sound   effects,     and   create   an    enveloping 
atmosphere, as they add background sounds.

Subwoofer speaker

      Provides  rich  and  powerful  bass, adding a 
powerful dimension of realism.

Note

: Audio recorded for the center speaker and 

subwoofer will be assigned to the front  and 3-D
rear   speakers   to   obtain   the    optimum  3-D 
surround sound effect.

    

The  ideal  surround sound speaker configur-

ation may vary according to room size and  wall 
material. The figure below  illustrates  a  typical 
arrangement. 

Hints: 

      Front or main speakers and central  speaker
 should be placed at the same level and in a way 
that sound is oriented toward the listener's ears.
      3D surround sound or rear speakers  should 
be placed 3' higher than the height  of  listener's
 ears. 
     Subwoofer speaker may be placed anywhere 
within the room,   as its  location  produces little 
effect on   a  listener's   sensation  to  sound.  To 
obtain the optimum bass effect,  a  subwoofer is 
recommended in home theater systems.

This well-designed DVD  receiver  provides 

optimum sound quality when the speakers used 
are within the range of their rated impedance. 

Important 

       The minimum impedance of the five speaker 
       terminals is 6 ohm;  for the  subwoofer,  it  is 
       8 ohm. 

       If you want to use only one speaker or listen
     

  to monophonic music, do not parallel connect

 

       individual  speakers  to  the   left  and   right 
       channel terminals. See the figure on the left
       below.

Connecting Speaker Cables

      1.Peel off approximately

 1/ 2

 of cable 

         insulation 
      2.Tighten the wire end (#2 below)
      3.Open cable terminal by pressing back on 
         tab
      4.Insert wire end into terminal
      5.Release tab; make sure wire is in terminal 
         securely

Note: 

 To  prevent  damage  to the circuit, care 

should be taken to prevent short circuiting from 
occurring at the positive and negative poles of 
the speaker cord.
