SPEAKER SETUP
SPEAKERS TO BE USED
This unit is designed to provide the best sound-field quality with a 5 speaker configuration. The most effective speakers to use with
this unit are main speakers, rear speakers and a center speaker. You may omit the center speaker. (Refer to the “4-Speaker
Configuration” shown below.)
The main speakers are used for the majority of the sound output as well as effect sounds. The rear speakers are used for the effect
and surround sounds, and the center speaker is for the center sounds (dialog, etc.) within programs encoded with Dolby Surround.
The center speaker needs to be equal in power to the main speakers, though the rear speakers should be slightly lower in power.
However, all the speakers should have high enough power handling to accept the maximum output of this unit.
5-Speaker Configuration
This configuration is the most effective and recommended one.
In this configuration, the center speaker is necessary as well as
the rear speakers. If the program DOLBY PRO LOGIC or
DOLBY PRO LOGIC ENHANCED is selected, conversations
will be output from the center speaker and the ambience will be
excellent.
q
Set the center channel mode to the “NORMAL” or “WIDE”
position.  (For details, refer to page 20.)

SPEAKER PLACEMENT
The recommended 5-speaker configuration requires a pair of main speakers, a center speaker, and a pair of rear speakers
(sometimes referred to as surround speakers).  When arranging your speakers, refer to the illustration and information below.
Main:
Position the main speakers at equal distances away
from the listening position and at equal distances on
either side of the center speaker.
Rear:
Position rear speakers directly behind the listening
position at a height of approximately 1.8m (6 feet) up
from the floor, facing slightly inward. If the speakers
cannot be placed behind the listening position, they
may also be placed at the side of the listening
position, facing toward the listening position.
Center: Position the center speaker directly in front of the
listening position between the main speakers. (When
placing on or near a television, use a magnetically
shielded speaker to avoid unwanted interference.)
4-Speaker Configuration
The center speaker is not used in this configuration. If the
program DOLBY PRO LOGIC or DOLBY PRO LOGIC
ENHANCED is selected, the center sound is output from the
left and the right main speakers. However, the sound effect of
other programs can be the same as that of the 5-speaker
configuration.
q
Be sure to set the center channel mode to the “PHANTOM”
position.  (For details, refer to page 20.)
