Notes on speaker use
≥Use only supplied speakers
Using other speakers can damage the unit, and sound quality will be
negatively affected.
≥ 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 reverberating due to 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.
If irregular coloring occurs on your TV
The center speaker is designed to be used close to a TV, but the picture
may be affected with some TVs and setup combinations.
If this occurs, turn the TV off for about 30 minutes.
The demagnetizing function of the TV should correct the problem. If it
persists, move the speakers further away from the TV.
≥ The main unit and supplied speakers are to be
used only as indicated in this setup. Failure to
do so may lead to damage to the amplifier and/or
the speakers, and may result in the risk of fire.
Consult a qualified service person if damage has
occurred or if you experience a sudden change
in performance.
≥ Do not attempt to attach these speakers to walls
using methods other than those described in
this manual.
Do not touch the front netted area of the speakers. Hold by the sides.
