Put the center speaker on a rack or shelf. Place to the dght of the television, on the floor or a sturdy shelf so that it won't cause vibration. Leave 10 cm (4") on the dght for the woofer to be effective. Leave 10 cm (4") at the rear for ventilation. Notes on speaker use • You can damage your speakers and shorten their useful life if you play sound at high levels over extended periods. • Reduce the volume in the following cases to avoid damage. -When playing distorted sound. -When the speakers are receiving howling from a record player, noise from FM broadcasts, or continuous signals from an oscillator, test disc, or electronic instrument. -When adjusting the sound quality. -When turning the unit on or off. Caution • Use the speakers only with the recommended system. Failure to do so may lead to damage to the amplifier and/or the speakers, and may result in the risk of fire.

Decoder A decoder restores the coded audio signals on DVDs to normal. This is called decoding. Dolby Digital This is a method of coding digital signals developed by Dolby Laboratories. Apart from stereo (2-channel) audio, these signals can also be multi-channel audio. A large amount of audio information can be recorded on one disc using this method. Dolby Pro Logic A surround system where a 4-channel audio track is recorded as 2 channels and then is restored to 4 channels for play. The surround channel is monaural and can reproduce up to 7 kHz. DTS (Digital Theater Systems) This surround system is used in many movie theaters around the wodd. There is good separation between the channels, so realistic sound effects are possible. Dynamic range Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level of sound that can be heard above the noise of the equipment and the highest level of sound before distortion occurs. Film and video DVD-Videos are recorded using either film or video. Usually, film is recorded at 24 frames per second, the rate movies are filmed at, while video is recorded at 30 frames per second. To clean this unit, wipe with a soft, dry cloth. eNever use alcohol, paint thinner or benzine to clean this unit. eBefore using chemically treated cloth, read the instructions that came with the cloth carefully. Frame still and field still Frames are the still pictures t_at make moving pictures. About thirty are shown each second. A frame still may appear blurred but overall quality is high. Two fields appear alternately to make up one frame. A field still is not blurred but picture quality is lower. Interlace and progressive output NTSC, the video signal standard, has 480 interlaced (I) scan lines, whereas progressive scanning uses twice the number of scan lines. This is called 480P. I/P/B MPEG 2, the video compression standard adopted for use with DVD-Video, cedes frames using these 3 picture types. I: thtra coded picture This picture has the best quality and is the best to use when adjusting the picture. P: Predictive coded picture This picture is calculated based on past I or P-pictures. B: Bidirectionally-predictive ceded picture This picture is calculated by comparing past and future I and P-pictures so it has the lowest volume of information. Linear PCM (pulse code modulation) These are uncompressed digital signals, similar to those found on CDs.

Listening caution Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you've just purchased is only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now it's time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement your equipment offers. This manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association's Consumer Electronics Group want you to get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that lets the sound come through loud and clear without annoying blaring or distortion--and, most importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing. We recommend that you avoid prolonged exposure to excessive noise. Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing "comfort level" adapts to higher volumes of sound. SOwhat sounds "normal" can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing adapts. To establish a safe level: eStart your volume control at a low setting. eSIowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without distortion. Once you have established a comfortable sound level: eSet the dial and leave it there. Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or loss in the future. After all, we want you fistening for a lifetime.
