    Precautions—Continued

    Speaker Precautions

    For British models

    Placement

    Replacement and mounting of an AC plug on the power
    supply cord of this unit should be performed only by
    qualified service personnel.

    • The speaker cabinets are made out of wood and are
    therefore sensitive to extreme temperatures and
    humidity, do not put them in locations subject to
    direct sunlight or in humid places, such as near an air
    conditioner, humidifier, bathroom, or kitchen.
    • Do not put water or other liquids close to the speakers. If liquid is spilled over the speakers, the drive
    units may be damaged.
    • Speakers should only be placed on sturdy, flat surfaces that are free from vibration. Putting them on
    uneven or unstable surfaces, where they may fall and
    cause damage, will affect the sound quality.
    • Subwoofer is designed to be used in the upright vertical position only. Do not use it in the horizontal or
    tilted position.
    • If the unit is used near a turntable, CD player or
    DVD player, howling or slipping of sound may
    occur. To prevent this, move the unit away from the
    turntable, CD player or DVD player otherwise lower
    the unit’s output level.

    IMPORTANT
    The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance
    with the following code:
    Blue: Neutral
    Brown: Live
    As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this
    apparatus may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as
    follows:
    The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to
    the terminal which is marked with the letter N or
    coloured black.
    The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to
    the terminal which is marked with the letter L or
    coloured red.

    IMPORTANT
    The plug is fitted with an appropriate fuse. If the fuse
    needs to be replaced, the replacement fuse must
    approved by ASTA or BSI to BS1362 and have the same
    ampere rating as that indicated on the plug. Check for
    the ASTA mark or the BSI mark on the body of the fuse.
    If the power cord’s plug is not suitable for your socket
    outlets, cut it off and fit a suitable plug. Fit a suitable
    fuse in the plug.

    For European Models
    Declaration of Conformity
    We, ONKYO EUROPE
    ELECTRONICS GmbH
    LIEGNITZERSTRASSE 6,
    82194 GROEBENZELL,
    GERMANY
    declare in own responsibility, that the ONKYO product
    described in this instruction manual is in compliance with the
    corresponding
    technical standards such as EN60065,
    EN55013, EN55020 and EN61000-3-2, -3-3.

    TVs and computer monitors are magnetically sensitive
    devices and as such are likely to suffer discoloration or
    picture distortion when conventional speakers are
    placed nearby. To prevent this, the SKF-940F and SKC940C feature internal magnetic shielding. In some situations, however, discoloration may still be an issue, in
    which case you should turn off your TV or monitor, wait
    15 to 30 minutes, and then turn it back on again. This
    normally activates the degaussing function, which neutralizes the magnetic field, thereby removing any discoloration effects. If discoloration problems persist, try
    moving the speakers away from your TV or monitor.
    Note that discoloration can also be caused by a magnet
    or demagnetizing tool that’s too close to your TV or
    monitor.

    Using Close to a TV or Computer

    The speakers can handle the specified input power when
    used for normal music reproduction. If any of the following signals are fed to them, even if the input power is
    within the specified rating, excessive current may flow in
    the speaker coils, causing burning or wire breakage:
    1. Interstation noise from an untuned FM radio.
    2. Sound from fast-forwarding a cassette tape.
    3. High-pitched sounds generated by an oscillator, electronic musical instrument, and so on.
    4. Amplifier oscillation.
    5. Special test tones from audio test CDs and so on.
    6. Thumps and clicks caused by connecting or disconnecting audio cables (Always turn off your amplifier
    before connecting or disconnecting cables.)
    7. Microphone feedback.

    Enjoying Home Theater
    Speaker Sets A and B
    You can use two sets of speakers with the AV receiver: speaker set A and speaker set B.
    Speaker set A should be used in your main listening room for up to 7.1-channel playback.
    *While speaker set B is on, speaker set A is reduced to 5.1-channel playback.

    Speaker set B can be used in another room and offers 2-channel stereo playback.
    *Only analog input sources are output by speaker set B.

    Speaker Set A: Main Room
    Front left and right speakers (SKF-940F)
    These output the overall sound. Their role in a home theater is to provide a solid anchor for the sound image. They should be positioned
    facing the listener at about ear level, and equally spaced from the TV.
    Angle them inward.

    Center speaker (SKC-940C)
    This speaker enhances the front
    left and right speakers, making
    sound movements distinct and
    providing a full sound image. For
    movies it’s used mainly for dialog.
    Position it close to your TV facing
    forward at about ear level, or at
    the same height as the front left
    and right speakers.

    Surround left and right speakers
    (SKM-940S)
    These speakers are used for precise
    sound positioning and to add realistic
    ambience. Position them at the sides
    of the listener, or slightly behind, about
    2–3 feet (60–100 cm) above ear level.
    Ideally they should be equally spaced
    from the listener.

    Corner

    Subwoofer (SKW-940)
    The subwoofer handles the bass
    sounds of the LFE (Low-Frequency
    Effects) channel. In general, a
    good bass sound can be obtained
    by installing the subwoofer in a
    front corner, or at one-third the way
    along the wall, as shown.

    Speaker Set B: Sub Room

    1/3 wall
    length

    Surround back left and right speakers (SKB-940)
    These speakers further enhance the realism of surround
    sound and improve sound localization behind the listener.
    Position them behind the listener about 2–3 feet (60–100 cm)
    above ear level.
    THX recommends that they be placed as close as possible in
    order to make advantage of their proprietary ASA (Advanced
    Speaker Array) technology. If this condition is not possible,
    adjust the SB Spc (Surround Back Spacing) setting via the
    THX Audio (see page 51).
    * While speaker set B is on, these speakers output no sound.

    3

    Insert the two supplied batteries (AA/R6)
    in accordance with the polarity diagram
    inside the battery compartment.

    Slide the cover shut.

    Approx. 16 ft.
    (5 m)

    Notes:
    • The remote controller may not work reliably if the AV
    receiver is subjected to bright light, such as direct sunlight or inverter-type fluorescent lights. Keep this in
    mind when installing.
    • If another remote controller of the same type is used in
    the same room, or the AV receiver is installed close to
    equipment that uses infrared rays, the remote controller may not work reliably.
    • Don’t put anything on top of the remote controller,
    such as a book or magazine, because a button may be
    pressed continuously, thereby draining the batteries.
    • The remote controller may not work reliably if the AV
    receiver is installed in a rack behind colored glass
    doors. Keep this in mind when installing.
    • The remote controller will not work if there’s an obstacle between it and the AV receiver’s remote control
    sensor.

    Notes:
    • If the remote controller doesn’t work reliably, try
    replacing the batteries.
    • Don’t mix new and old batteries or different types of
    batteries.
    • If you intend not to use the remote controller for a long
    time, remove the batteries to prevent damage from
    leakage or corrosion.
    • Expired batteries should be removed as soon as possible to prevent damage from leakage or corrosion.

    Connecting Your Speakers
    Speaker Connection Precautions

    Connecting Speaker Set A

    Read the following before connecting your speakers:
    • You can connect speakers with an impedance of
    8 ohms or higher. If you use speakers with a lower
    impedance, and use the amplifier at high volume levels for a long period of time, the built-in protection
    circuit may be activated.
    • Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet before
    making any connections.
    • Pay close attention to speaker wiring polarity. In other
    words, connect positive (+) terminals to only positive
    (+) terminals, and negative (–) terminals to only negative (–) terminals. If you get them the wrong way
    around, the sound will be out of phase and will sound
    unnatural.
    • Unnecessarily long, or very thin speaker cables may
    affect the sound quality and should be avoided.
    • Be careful not to short the
    positive and negative wires.
    Doing so may damage the AV
    receiver.
    • Don’t connect more than one
    cable to each speaker terminal. Doing so may damage the
    AV receiver.
    • Don’t connect one speaker to several terminals.

    Once your AV receiver is ready for use, you’ll
    need to tune into an FM radio station and adjust
    the position of the FM antenna to achieve the best
    possible reception.

    2

    Use thumbtacks or something similar to
    fix the FM antenna into position.

    Thumbtacks, etc.

    Caution: Be careful that you don’t injure yourself
    when using thumbtacks.
    If you cannot achieve good reception with the supplied

    Connecting an Outdoor AM Antenna

    If you cannot achieve good reception with the supplied
    indoor FM antenna, try a commercially available outdoor FM antenna instead.

    If good reception cannot be achieved using the supplied
    AM loop antenna, an outdoor AM antenna can be used in
    addition to the loop antenna, as shown.

    FM 75

    Insulated antenna cable
    AM loop antenna

    Notes:
    • Outdoor FM antennas work best outside, but usable
    results can sometimes be obtained when installed in an
    attic or loft.
    • For best results, install the outdoor FM antenna well
    away from tall buildings, preferably with a clear line
    of sight to your local FM transmitter.
    • Outdoor antenna should be located away from possible noise sources, such as neon signs, busy roads, etc.
    • For safety reasons, outdoor antenna should be situated
    well away from power lines and other high-voltage
    equipment.
    • Outdoor antenna must be grounded in accordance
    with local regulations to prevent electrical shock hazards.

    Outdoor AM antennas work best when installed horizontally outside, but good results can sometimes be obtained
    indoors by mounting horizontally above a window. Note
    that the AM loop antenna should be left connected.
    Outdoor antenna must be grounded in accordance with
    local regulations to prevent electrical shock hazards.

    ■ Using a TV/FM Antenna Splitter
    It’s best not to use the same antenna for both FM and TV
    reception, as this can cause interference problems. If circumstances demand it, use a TV/FM antenna splitter, as
    shown.

    AV Connection Color Coding

    About AV Connections

    RCA-type AV connections are usually color coded: red,
    white, and yellow. Use red plugs to connect right-channel audio inputs and outputs (typically labeled “R”). Use
    white plugs to connect left-channel audio inputs and outputs (typically labeled “L”). And use yellow plugs to
    connect composite video inputs and outputs.

    • Before making any AV connections, read the manuals
    supplied with your other AV components.
    • Don’t connect the power cord until you’ve completed
    and double-checked all AV connections.

    Optical Digital Jacks

    Left (white)

    The AV receiver’s optical digital jacks have shutter-type
    covers that open when an optical plug is inserted and
    close when it’s removed. Push plugs in all the way.

    Which Connections Should I Use?
    The AV receiver supports several connection formats for compatibility with a wide range of AV equipment. The format
    you choose will depend on the formats supported by your other components. Use the following sections as a guide.
    For video components, such as a DVD player, you must make an audio connection and a video connection.

    Video Connection Formats

    Audio Connection Formats

    Video equipment can be connected to the AV receiver by
    using any one of the following video connection formats:
    composite video, S-Video, or component video, the
    latter offering the best picture quality.
    A video signal connected to a V or S IN jack will be converted—composite video to S-Video or S-Video to composite video—but only for the MONITOR OUT jacks,
    not the VIDEO 1 OUT V and S jacks.
    Note: The AV receiver can be set to upconvert composite
    video and S-Video input signals and output them from
    the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT (see page 36).
    For optimum video performance, THX recommends
    that video signals pass through without upconversion
    (i.e., Composite video input to Composite video output; S-Video input to S-Video output; Component
    video input to Component video output).

    When choosing a connection format, bear in mind that
    the AV receiver doesn’t convert between formats.
    For example, audio signals connected to an OPTICAL or
    COAXIAL digital input are not output by the analog
    TAPE OUT, so if you want to record from, for example,
    your CD player, in addition to connecting it to a digital
    input, you must also connect it to the analog CD IN.

    Hooking Up the Multichannel DVD Input
    If your DVD player supports multichannel audio formats such as DVD-Audio or SACD, and it has a multichannel
    analog audio output, you can connect it to the AV receiver’s multichannel DVD input.
    Use a multichannel analog audio cable, or several normal audio cables, to connect the AV receiver’s DVD IN FRONT
    L/R, CENTER, SURROUND L/R, SURR BACK L/R, and SUBWOOFER jacks to the 7.1-channel analog audio output
    on your DVD player. If your DVD player has a 5.1-channel analog audio output, don’t connect anything to the AV
    receiver’s SURR BACK L/R jacks.

    Connecting the Power Cord of Another Component
    The AV receiver has an AC outlet on its rear panel for
    connecting the power cord of another AV component.
    The other component’s power switch can then be left in
    the ON position so that it turns on or off when the AV
    receiver is set to On or Standby.

    Connecting Your Components—Continued
    Connecting Onkyo

    Components

    Step 1: Make sure that each Onkyo component is connected to the AV receiver with an analog audio cable (connection a in the hookup examples) (see pages 24 to 32).
    Step 2: Make the

    connection.

    Step 3: If you’re using an MD, CDR, or HDD component, change the Input Display (see page 35).
    With

    (Remote Interactive), you can use the following special functions:

    ■ Auto Power On/Standby
    When you start playback on a component connected via
    , if the AV receiver is on Standby, it will automatically
    turn on and select that component as the input source. Similarly, when the AV receiver is set to Standby, all components connected via
    will also go on Standby. This function will not work on components connected to an AC
    OUTLET on the AV receiver.
    ■ Direct Change
    When playback is started on a component connected via
    , the AV receiver automatically selects that component
    as the input source. If your DVD player is connected to the AV receiver’s multichannel DVD input, you’ll need to
    press the [MULTI CH] button to hear all channels (see page 38), as the Direct Change
    function only selects the
    FRONT DVD IN jacks.
    ■ Remote Control
    You can use the AV receiver’s remote controller to control your other
    -capable Onkyo components, pointing the
    remote controller at the AV receiver’s remote control sensor instead of the component. You must enter the appropriate remote control code first (page 58).
    Notes:
    • Use only
    cables for
    connections.
    cables are supplied with Onkyo players (DVD,
    CD, etc.).
    • Some components have two
    jacks. You can
    connect either one to the AV receiver. The other
    jack is for connecting additional
    -capable
    components.
    • Connect only Onkyo components to
    jacks.
    Connecting other manufacturer’s components
    may cause a malfunction.
    • Some components may not support all
    functions. Refer to the manuals supplied with your
    other Onkyo components.

    Connecting the Power Cord
    • Connect the AV receiver’s and subwoofer’s power cord to a suitable wall outlet.
    Notes:
    • Before connecting the power cord, connect all of your speakers and AV components.
    • Turning on the AV receiver and subwoofer may cause a momentary power surge that might interfere with other
    electrical equipment on the same circuit. If this is a problem, plug the AV receiver into a different branch circuit.

    Testing the speakers
    To test that all of the speakers are working properly, press the remote controller’s [TEST TONE] button. The
    test tone will be output by each speaker in turn and the name of each speaker will appear on the display. To turn off
    the test tone, press the [TEST TONE] button again.
    • If the test tone is not produced by a speaker, or it’s produced by a speaker other than that shown on the display,
    you may have wired the speakers incorrectly and you should check your connections (see page 19).
    • Testing cannot be performed while speaker set B is on or a pair of headphones is connected.

    To adjust the volume, use the MASTER VOLUME control, or the remote
    controller’s [VOL] button.
    The volume can be set to –∞ dB, –83…0…+16 dB. Since the AV receiver is designed
    for home theater enjoyment, it has a wide volume range for precise adjustment.
    To set the level of the subwoofer, use the OUTPUT LEVEL control.
    Because our ears are less sensitive to very low bass sounds, there’s a temptation to set
    the level of the subwoofer too high. As a rule of thumb, set the subwoofer level to what
    you think is the optimal level, and then back it off slightly.

    ■ What is RDS?
    RDS stands for Radio Data System and is a method of
    transmitting data in FM radio signals. It was developed
    by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and is available in most European countries. Many FM stations use
    it these days. In addition to displaying text information,
    RDS can also help you find radio stations by type (e.g.,
    news, sport, rock, etc.).
    The AV receiver supports four types of RDS information:

    Pure Audio (not North American models)

    In this mode, the display and video circuitry are turned
    off, minimizing possible noise sources for the ultimate in
    high-fidelity reproduction. (As the video circuitry is
    turned off, no video signals are output in this mode.)
    Direct

    In this mode, audio from the input source is output
    directly with minimal processing, providing high-fidelity reproduction. All of the source’s audio channels are
    output as they are.
    Stereo

    Sound is output by the front left and right speakers and
    subwoofer.
    Mono

    Use this mode when watching an old movie with a mono
    soundtrack, or use it with the foreign language
    soundtracks recorded in the left and right channels of
    some movies. It can also be used with DVDs or other
    sources containing multiplexed audio, such as karaoke
    DVDs.
    Dolby Pro Logic IIx
    Dolby Pro Logic II

    Dolby Pro Logic IIx expands any 2-channel source for
    7.1-channel playback. It provides a very natural and
    seamless surround-sound experience that fully envelops
    the listener. As well as music and movies, video games
    can also benefit from the dramatic spatial effects and
    vivid imaging. If you’re not using any surround back
    speakers, Dolby Pro Logic II will be used instead of
    Dolby Pro Logic IIx.


    PLIIx Movie

    Use this mode with any stereo or Dolby Surround
    (Pro Logic) movie (e.g., TV, DVD, VHS).


    PLIIx Music

    Use this mode with any stereo or Dolby Surround
    (Pro Logic) music source (e.g., CD, radio, cassette,
    TV, VHS, DVD).


    PLIIx Game

    Dolby Digital

    Use this mode with DVDs that bear the
    Dolby Digital logo, and Dolby Digital TV
    broadcasts. This is the most common digital surroundsound format, and it’ll put you right in the middle of the
    action, just like being in a movie theater or concert hall.
    Dolby Digital EX
    DTS+Dolby EX

    These modes expand 5.1-channel Dolby
    Digital and DTS sources for 6.1/7.1-channel playback. They’re especially suited to
    Dolby Digital EX soundtracks that include
    a matrix-encoded surround back channel. The additional
    channel adds an extra dimension and provides an enveloping surround sound experience, perfect for rotating
    and fly-by sound effects. Use them with DVDs that bear
    the Dolby Digital or DTS logo.
    Dolby Digital+PLIIx Music
    DTS+PLIIx Music

    These modes use the Pro Logic IIx Music
    mode to expand 5.1-channel Dolby Digital
    and DTS sources for 6.1/7.1-channel playback. Use them with Dolby Digital or
    DTS 5.1 music sources (e.g., DVD and Dolby Digital TV
    broadcasts).
    Dolby Digital+PLIIx Movie
    DTS+PLIIx Movie

    These modes use the Pro Logic IIx Movie
    mode to expand 5.1-channel Dolby Digital
    and DTS sources for 7.1-channel playback. Use them with Dolby Digital and
    DTS 5.1 movies (e.g., DVD and select digital TV broadcasts).
    DTS

    The DTS digital surround-sound format supports
    up to 5.1 discrete channels and uses less compression for high-fidelity reproduction. Use it
    with DVDs and CDs that bear the DTS logo.
    DTS 96/24

    This mode is for use with DTS 96/24
    sources. This is high-resolution DTS with a
    96 kHz sampling rate and 24-bit resolution, providing
    superior fidelity. Use it with DVDs that bear the DTS
    96/24 logo.
    DTS-ES Discrete

    This mode is for use with DTS-ES Discrete
    soundtracks, which use a discrete surround
    back channel for true 6.1/7.1-channel playback. The
    seven totally separate audio channels provide better spatial imaging and 360-degree sound localization, perfect
    for sounds that pan across the surround channels. Use it
    with DVDs that bear the DTS-ES logo, especially those
    with a DTS-ES Discrete soundtrack.

    Use this mode with video games, especially those that
    bear the Dolby Pro Logic II logo.

    DTS-ES Matrix

    This mode is for use with DTS-ES Matrix
    soundtracks, which use a matrix-encoded
    back-channel for 6.1/7.1-channel playback. Use it with
    DVDs that bear the DTS-ES logo, especially those with
    a DTS-ES Matrix soundtrack.
    DTS Neo:6

    This mode expands any 2-channel source for 6.1-channel playback. It uses six full-bandwidth channels of
    matrix decoding for matrix-encoded material, providing
    a very natural and seamless surround sound experience
    that fully envelops the listener.


    Neo:6 Cinema

    Use this mode with any stereo movie (e.g., TV, DVD,
    VHS).


    Neo:6 Music

    Use this mode with any stereo music source (e.g.,
    CD, radio, cassette, TV, VHS, DVD).
    Dolby Digital + Neo:6
    DTS+Neo:6

    This mode uses Neo:6 to expand 5.1-channel Dolby Digital and DTS sources for
    6.1/7.1-channel playback. Use it with
    DVDs that bear the Dolby Digital or DTS
    logo and feature a 5.1-channel soundtrack.
    Neural Surround

    This mode is for watching movies, which are typically recorded and edited on the assumption that they
    will be played in a sizable place like a movie theater.
    It carefully optimizes the tonal and spatial characteristics of the soundtrack for reproduction in the
    smaller home-theater environment. It can be used
    with 2-channel sources processed with other formats, and multichannel sources. Surround back
    speaker output depends on the source material and
    the selected listening mode.

    or

    This mode expands Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1channel sources for 6.1/7.1-channel playback. It’s
    especially suited to Dolby Digital EX sources. THX
    Surround EX, also known as Dolby Digital Surround
    EX, is a joint development between Dolby Laboratories and THX Ltd.

    Neural Surround represents the latest advancement in
    surround technology developed for music and is adopted
    by XM Satellite Radio for digital radio broadcast of surround recordings and live events in surround sound.
    Neural Surround employs psychoacoustic frequencydomain processing, which allows delivery of a more
    detailed sound stage, with superior channel separation
    and localization of audio elements. System playback is
    scalable from 5.1 to 7.1 multichannel surround playback.

    Founded by George Lucas, THX develops stringent standards that ensure movies are reproduced in movie theaters and home theaters just as the director intended.

    48

    this by analyzing the composition of the surround
    source, optimizing the ambient and directional
    sounds to produce the surround back channel output.
    This is a new and improved mode especially for
    home theater use.

    Suitable for classical or operatic music, this mode
    emphasizes the surround channels in order to widen the
    stereo image, and simulates the natural reverberation of
    a large hall.
    Unplugged

    Suitable for acoustic instruments, vocals, and jazz, this
    mode emphasizes the front stereo image, giving the
    impression of being right in front of the stage.
    Suitable for rock or pop music, listening to music in this
    mode creates a lively sound field with a powerful acoustic image, like being at a club or rock concert.
    TV Logic

    This mode adds realistic acoustics to TV shows produced in a TV studio, surround effects to the entire
    sound, and clarity to voices.
    All Ch Stereo

    Ideal for background music, this mode fills the entire listening area with stereo sound from the front, surround,
    and surround back speakers.
    Full Mono

    In this mode, all speakers output the same sound in
    mono, so the sound you hear is the same regardless of
    where you are within the listening room.

    SETUP

    The Audio Adjust settings are explained below.

    Input Channel Settings
    ■ Multiplex
    This setting determines which channel is output from a
    stereo multiplex source. Use it to select audio channels
    or languages with multiplex sources, multilingual TV
    broadcasts, and so on.
    Main: The main channel is output (default).
    Sub: The sub channel is output.
    M/S: Both the main and sub channels are output.
    ■ Mono (2ch)
    This setting determines which channel is output when
    the Mono listening mode is used with a stereo source.
    L+R: Both the left and right channels are output
    (default).
    L: Only the left channel is output.
    R: Only the right channel is output.

    Mono Setting
    ■ Mono Out Sp
    This setting determines which speakers output mono
    audio when the Mono listening mode is selected.
    L/R: Mono audio is output from the front left and
    right speakers.
    C: Mono audio is output from the center speaker
    (default).

    PLII and PLIIx Music Mode Settings
    These settings apply to only 2-channel (stereo) sources.
    ■ Panorama
    With this setting, you can broaden the width of the front
    stereo image when using the Pro Logic II Music or Pro
    Logic IIx Music listening mode.
    On: Panorama function on.
    Off: Panorama function off (default).
    ■ Dimension
    With this setting, you can move the sound field forward
    or backward when using the Pro Logic II Music or Pro
    Logic IIx Music listening mode. The default value is 3.
    It can be adjusted from 0 to 6. Higher settings move the
    sound field forward. Lower settings move it backward.
    If the stereo image feels too wide, or there’s too much
    surround sound, move the sound field forward to
    improve the balance. Conversely, if the stereo image
    feels like it’s in mono, or there’s not enough surround
    sound, move it backward.

    50

    ■ Center Width
    With this setting, you can adjust the width of the sound
    from the center speaker when using the Pro Logic II
    Music or Pro Logic IIx Music listening mode. Normally,
    the center channel sound is output by only the center
    speaker. (If you’re not using a center speaker, the center
    channel sound will be distributed to the front left and
    right speakers to create a phantom center). This setting
    adjusts the front left, right, and center mix, allowing you
    to adjust the weight of the center channel sound. It can
    be adjusted from 0 to 7 (default value is 3).

    DTS Neo:6 Music Mode Setting
    ■ Center Image
    The DTS Neo:6 Music listening mode creates 6-channel
    surround sound from 2-channel (stereo) sources. With
    this setting, you can specify by how much the front left
    and right channel output is attenuated in order to create
    the center channel. It can be adjusted from 0 to 5 (default
    value is 2). This setting has no effect if no center speaker
    is connected.
    When set to 0, the front left and right channel output is
    attenuated by half (–6 dB), giving the impression that the
    sound is located centrally. This setting works well when
    the listening position is considerably off center. When
    set to 5, the front left and right channels are not attenuated, maintaining the original stereo balance.

    Dolby Digital EX Input Signal Setting
    ■ Dolby EX
    This setting determines how Dolby Digital EX signals
    are handled. This setting is unavailable if no surround
    back speakers are connected or speaker set B is on.
    Auto: If the source signal contains a Dolby Digital
    EX flag, the Dolby Digital EX listening mode
    is used, and THX Surround EX can be
    selected from among the THX listening
    modes (default).
    Manual: You can select Pro Logic IIx Movie, Pro
    Logic IIx Music, Dolby Digital, or Dolby
    Digital EX.

    Multichannel Subwoofer Setting
    ■ SW Sens
    On some DVD players, the signal from the multichannel
    subwoofer output is 15 dB higher than normal. You can
    change the subwoofer sensitivity to match your DVD
    player. Note that this setting only affects signals connected to the SUBWOOFER input jack of the multichannel DVD input.
    You can select 0 dB (default), +5 dB, +10 dB, or +15 dB.
    If you find that your subwoofer is too loud, try the
    +10 dB or +15 dB setting.



  • Page 51

    Using the Listening Modes—Continued
    LFE Level Setting
    With this setting, you can set the level of the LFE (Low
    Frequency Effects) channel for Dolby Digital and DTS.
    The level can be set to –∞, –10 dB, or 0 dB (default).
    If you find that the low-frequency effects are too loud
    when using one of these sources, set the level to –10 dB
    or –∞ dB.

    Vol Display
    With this preference, you can choose how the volume
    level is displayed.
    Abs (Absolute): Display range is MIN, 1 through 99,
    MAX.
    Rel (Relative): Display range is –∞ dB,
    –83…0…+16 dB (default).
    The absolute value 84 is equivalent to the relative value
    0 dB.

    may make bass sounds louder when the listening position or subwoofer is positioned close to such a boundary.
    This is called the boundary gain effect. With this setting,
    you can compensate for this and achieve a more accurate
    and flatter bass response.
    On: Boundary Gain Compensation on.
    Off: Boundary Gain Compensation off (default).

    SB Spc (Surround Back Spacing) Setting

    ASA (Advanced Speaker Array) technology, these
    speakers should be placed as close together as possible.
    0–1 ft (0–0.3 m) (Default):
    Select this if the speakers are between 0 and
    1 foot (0–30 cm) apart.
    1–4 ft (0.3–1.2 m):
    Select this if the speakers are between 1 and
    4 feet (0.3–1.2 m) apart.
    >4 ft (>1.2 m):
    Select this if the speakers are more than 4 feet
    (1.2 m) apart.

    Recording
    This section explains how to record the selected input
    source to a component with recording capability, and
    how to record audio and video from different sources.

    Recording the Input Source
    You can only record to a component that’s connected to
    the TAPE OUT or VIDEO 1 OUT jacks.
    See pages 22–33 for information on connecting your AV
    components.

    Use the input selector buttons to
    select the component that you
    want to record.
    Audio signals from the selected input
    source are output by the TAPE OUT
    and VIDEO 1 OUT jacks.
    You can listen to the source while
    recording. The AV receiver’s VOLUME control has no effect on recording.

    Recording Audio and Video from
    Separate Sources
    You can overdub audio onto your video recordings by
    simultaneously recording audio and video from two separate sources. This is possible because only the audio
    source is switched when an audio-only input source,
    such as TAPE, TUNER, or CD, is selected, the video
    source remains the same.
    In the following example, audio from the CD player connected to the CD IN jacks, and video from the camcorder
    connected to the VIDEO 3 INPUT VIDEO jack are
    recorded by the VCR connected to the VIDEO 1 OUT
    jacks.

    • The surround sound effects provided by the listening
    modes cannot be recorded.
    • You cannot record from a component that’s connected
    to the multichannel DVD input.
    • If you select another input source while recording, that
    input source will be recorded instead.
    • While the Pure Audio listening mode (not North

    Speaker Distance
    The speaker distance setting cannot be
    changed while a pair of headphones is connected, speaker set B is on, or the multichannel input is being used.

    SETUP

    To get the best from surround sound, it’s important that
    the sound from each speaker reaches the listener at the
    same time. To achieve this, you need to specify the distance from each speaker to the listening position.

    1
    2

    Measure and make a note of the
    distance from each speaker to
    the listening position.

    RECEIVER

    Press the [RECEIVER] button followed by the [SETUP] button on
    the remote controller.

    Speaker Levels
    With this function, you can adjust the volume of each
    speaker so that all speakers can be heard equally at the
    listening position.

    4

    Repeat step 3 so that the level of
    the test tone from each speaker
    is the same.
    Speakers that you set to No in the
    Speaker Configuration (page 55) do not
    output the test tone.
    If you’re using a handheld sound level
    meter, adjust the level of each speaker
    so it reads 75 dB SPL at the listening
    position, measured with C-weighting
    and slow reading.

    5

    Press the [SETUP] button.
    Setup closes.
    Don’t forget to turn down the volume if
    you turned it up while setting the levels.

    • The speaker levels cannot be adjusted while
    a pair of headphones is connected, speaker
    set B is on, or the AV receiver is muted.
    • Because the AV receiver supports THX, the
    test tone is output at the standard level of
    0 dB (relative volume setting 0). If you normally listen at volume settings below this, be
    careful because the test tone will be much
    louder.

    3

    Use the Left and Right [ ]/[ ]

    The level can be adjusted from –12 to
    +12 dB in 1 dB steps (–15 to +12 dB
    for the subwoofer).

    Note:
    • A quicker way to adjust the speaker levels is to press

    the test tone, use the [LEVEL–] and [LEVEL+] buttons to adjust the levels, and use the [CH SEL] button
    to select the speakers.

    Troubleshooting
    If you have any trouble using the 7.1ch THX Certified
    Digital Surround Receiver and Speaker Package, look
    for a solution in this section.
    If you can’t resolve the issue yourself, try resetting
    the AV receiver before contacting your Onkyo dealer.
    To reset the AV receiver to its factory defaults,
    turn it on and, while holding down the [VIDEO 1]
    button, press the [STANDBY/ON] button. “Clear”
    will appear on the display and the AV receiver will
    enter Standby mode.
    VIDEO 1







    STANDBY/ON


    VCR


    Note that resetting the AV receiver will delete your
    radio presets and custom settings.

    Power
    Can’t turn on the AV receiver
    • Make sure that the power cord is plugged into the wall
    outlet properly.
    • Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, wait 5
    seconds or more, then plug it in again.
    The AV receiver turns off as soon as it’s turned
    on
    • The amp protection circuit has been activated.
    Remove the power cord from the wall outlet immediately. Disconnect all speaker cables and input sources,
    and leave the AV receiver with its power cord disconnected for 1 hour. After that, reconnect the power cord
    and set the volume to maximum. If the AV receiver
    stays on, set the volume to minimum, disconnect the
    power cord, and reconnect your speakers and input
    sources. If the AV receiver turns off when you set the
    volume to maximum, disconnect the power cord, and
    contact your Onkyo dealer.

    Audio
    There’s no sound or it’s very quiet
    • Make sure that the digital input source is selected
    properly (page 35). Press the [DIGITAL INPUT] button repeatedly.
    • Make sure the speker set A or B is on (page 8).
    • Make sure that all audio connecting plugs are pushed
    in all the way (page 22).
    • Make sure that the polarity of the speaker cables is
    correct, and that the bare wire is in contact with metal
    part of each speaker terminal (page 19)
    • Make sure that the speaker cables are not shorting.
    • Check the volume. It can be set to –∞, –83 throught
    +16 dB (page 37). The AV receiver is designed for

    60




    home theater enjoyment and has a wide volume range
    for precise adjustment.
    If the MUTING indicator is shown on the display,
    press the remote controller’s [MUTING] button to
    unmute the AV receiver (page 43).
    While a pair of headphones is connected to the
    PHONES jack, no sound is output by the speakers
    (page 44).
    Check the digital audio output settings on the connected device. On some games consoles, such as those
    that can play DVDs, the default setting is off.
    With some DVD-Video discs, you need to select an
    audio format from a menu.
    If your turntable doesn’t have a phono preamp built-in,
    you must connect one between it and the AV receiver.
    If your turntable uses an MC cartridge, you must connect an MC head amp, or an MC transformer and a
    phono preamp.
    Specify the speaker distances and adjust the individual
    speaker levels (pages 53, 54).
    The input signal format is set to PCM or DTS. Set it to
    Auto (page 56).

    Only the front speakers produce sound
    • When the Stereo or Mono listening mode is selected,
    only the front speakers and subwoofer produce sound.
    • Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
    (page 55).
    Only the center speaker produces sound
    • If you use the Pro Logic IIx Movie, Pro Logic IIx
    Music, or Pro Logic IIx Game listening mode with a
    mono source, such as an AM radio station or mono TV
    program, the sound is concentrated in the center
    speaker.
    • Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
    (page 55).
    The surround speakers produce no sound
    • When the Stereo or Mono listening mode is selected,
    the surround speakers produce no sound (page 47).
    • Depending on the source and current listening mode,
    not much sound may be produced by the surround
    speakers. Try selecting another listening mode.
    • Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
    (page 55).
    The center speaker produces no sound
    • When the Stereo or Mono listening mode is selected,
    the center speaker produces no sound (page 47).
    • Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
    (page 55).
    The surround back speakers produce no sound
    • While speaker set B is on, speaker set A is reduced to
    5.1-channel playback and the surround back speakers
    produce no sound.



  • Page 61

    Troubleshooting—Continued
    • The surround back speakers are not used with all listening modes. Select another listening mode
    (page 47).
    • Not much sound may be produced by the surround
    back speakers with some sources.
    • Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
    (page 55).
    The subwoofer produces no sound
    • The level of the input signal was too low so the subwoofer entered Standby mode. Increase the subwoofer
    level slightly on the HT-R940.
    • Make sure that the subwoofer’s [POWER] switch is
    set to ON (not North American models).
    • The subwoofer’s OUTPUT LEVEL control is set at
    minimum. Turn it up.
    • The subwoofer outputs no sound while only speaker
    set B is on. Turn on speaker set A.
    • When you play source material that contains no information in the LFE channel, the subwoofer produces
    no sound.
    • Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
    (page 55).
    Speaker set B produces no sound
    • Speaker set B only outputs sources that are connected
    to an analog input. Make sure that the analog audio
    cables are connected properly.
    There’s no sound with a certain signal format
    • Check the digital audio output setting on the connected device. On some games consoles, such as those
    that can play DVDs, the default setting is off.
    • With some DVD-Video discs, you need to select an
    audio output format from a menu.
    Can’t get 6.1- or 7.1-channel playback
    • While speaker set B is on, speaker set A is reduced to
    5.1-channel playback.
    The volume cannot be set to +16 dB
    • When the volume level of each speaker has been
    adjusted (pages 44, 54), the maximum possible volume may be reduced.
    Noise can be heard
    • Using cable ties to bundle audio cables with power
    cords, speaker cables, and so on may degrade the
    audio performance, so don’t do it.
    • An audio cable may be picking up interference. Try
    repositioning your cables.

    The multichannel DVD input doesn’t work
    • Check the multichannel DVD input connections
    (page 26).
    • To select the multichannel DVD input, press the
    [MULTI CH] input selector button.
    • Check the audio output settings on your DVD player.
    About DTS signals
    • When playing DTS program material, using the pause,
    fast forward, or fast reverse function on your player
    may produce a short audible noise. This is not a malfunction.
    • When DTS program material ends and the DTS bitstream stops, the AV receiver remains in DTS listening mode and the DTS indicator remains on. This is to
    prevent noise when you use the pause, fast forward, or
    fast reverse function on your player. If you switch your
    player from DTS to PCM, because the AV receiver
    does not switch formats immediately, you may not
    hear any sound, in which case you should stop your
    player for about 3 seconds, and then resume playback.
    • With some CD players, you won’t be able to playback
    DTS material properly even though your player is connected to a digital input on the AV receiver. This is
    usually because the DTS bitstream has been processed
    (e.g., output level, sampling rate, or frequency
    response changed) and the AV receiver doesn’t recognize it as a genuine DTS signal. In such cases, you
    may hear noise.

    Video
    There’s no picture
    • Make sure that all video connecting plugs are pushed
    in all the way (page 22).
    • Make sure that each video component is properly connected.
    • The AV receiver does not convert component video
    input signals to other formats, so if a video source
    component is connected to a component video input,
    your TV must be connected to the component video
    output (page 23).
    • On your TV, make sure that the video input to which
    the AV receiver is connected is selected.
    • While the Pure Audio listening mode (not North
    American model) is selected, the video circuits are
    turned off and the AV receiver outputs no video signals.

    The Late Night function doesn’t work
    • Make sure the source material is Dolby Digital
    (page 49).

    Troubleshooting—Continued
    Tuner
    Reception is noisy, stereo FM reception suffers
    from hiss, or the FM STEREO indicator doesn’t
    appear
    • Relocate your antenna.
    • Move the AV receiver away from your TV or computer.
    • Listen to the station in mono (page 39).
    • When listening to an AM station, operating the remote
    controller may cause noise.
    • Passing cars and airplanes can cause interference.
    • Concrete walls weaken radio signals.
    • If nothing improves the reception, install an outdoor
    antenna.

    Remote Controller
    The remote controller doesn’t work
    • Make sure that the batteries are installed with the correct polarity (page 13).
    • Make sure that the remote controller is not too far
    away from the AV receiver, and that there’s no
    obstruction between the remote controller and the AV
    receiver’s remote control sensor (page 13).
    • Make sure you’ve selected the correct remote controller mode (page 14).
    • Make sure you’ve entered the correct remote control
    code (page 57).
    Can’t control other components
    • Make sure you’ve selected the correct remote controller mode (page 14).
    • If you’ve connected an
    -capable Onkyo MD
    recorder, CD recorder, or next generation HDD-compatible component to the TAPE IN/OUT jacks, or a
    DS-A1 Remote Interactive Dock to the VIDEO 2 IN
    jacks, for the remote controller to work properly, you
    must set the Input Display to MD, CDR, or HDD (see
    page 35).
    • The entered remote control code may not be correct. If
    more than one code is listed, try each one.
    • With some AV components, certain buttons may not
    work as expected, and some may not work at all.
    • To control an Onkyo component that’s connected via
    , point the remote controller at the AV receiver. Be
    sure to enter the appropriate remote control code first
    (see page 58).
    • To control an Onkyo component that’s not connected
    via
    , or another manufacturer’s component, point
    the remote controller at the component. Be sure to
    enter the appropriate remote control code first (see
    page 57).

    62

    Recording
    Can’t record
    • On your recorder, make sure the correct input is
    selected.
    • To prevent signal loops and damage to the AV
    receiver, input signals are not fed through to outputs
    with the same name (e.g., TAPE IN to TAPE OUT, or
    VIDEO 1 IN to VIDEO 1 OUT).
    • When the Pure Audio listening mode (not North
    American model) is selected, recording is not possible
    because no video signals are output. Select another listening mode.

    Others
    The sound changes when I connect my headphones
    • When a pair of headphones is connected, the listening
    mode is set to Stereo, unless it’s already set to Stereo,
    Mono, Direct, or Pure Audio (not North American
    model).
    The display doesn’t work
    • The display is turned off when the Pure Audio listening mode (not North American model) is selected.
    How do I change the language of a multiplex
    source
    • Use the “Multiplex” setting on the “Audio Adjust”
    menu to select Main or Sub (page 50).
    The
    functions don’t work
    • To use
    , you must make an
    connection and an
    analog audio connection (RCA) between the component and AV receiver, even if they are connected digitally (page 33).



  • Page 63

    Troubleshooting—Continued
    The AV receiver contains a microcomputer for signal
    processing and control functions. In very rare situations, severe interference, noise from an external
    source, or static electricity may cause it to lockup. In the
    unlikely event that this happens, unplug the power cord
    from the wall outlet, wait at least five seconds, and then
    plug it back in again.
    Onkyo is not responsible for damages (such as CD
    rental fees) due to unsuccessful recordings caused by
    the unit’s malfunction. Before you record important
    data, make sure that the material will be recorded correctly.
    Before disconnecting the power cord from the wall outlet, set the AV receiver to Standby.
    Memory Backup
    The AV receiver uses a battery-less memory backup
    system in order to retain radio presets and other settings when it’s unplugged or in the case of a power failure. Although no batteries are required, the AV receiver
    must be plugged into an AC outlet in order to charge the
    backup system. Once it has been charged, the AV
    receiver will retain the settings for several weeks,
    although this depends on the environment and will be
    shorter in humid climates.

    The following settings can be made for the
    S-Video and composite video inputs

    You must use the buttons on the unit to make these settings.
    1. While holding down the input selector button for the
    input source that you want to set, press the [SETUP]
    button.
    2. Use the Left and Right [ ]/[ ] buttons to change
    the setting.
    3. Press the [SETUP] button when you’ve finished.
    • Video Attenuation
    This setting can be made for the DVD, VIDEO 1,
    VIDEO 2, or VIDEO 3 input.
    If you have a games console connected to an S-Video
    or composite video input, and the picture isn’t very
    clear, you can attenuate the gain.
    Video ATT:0: (default).
    Video ATT:2: Gain is reduced by 2 dB.
