HiFi Began with Yamaha
Yamaha’s involvement with and passion for music goes back
more than a century, to when we built our first reed organ in
1887. Now we are the world’s leading producer of pianos and
other musical instruments, and are involved with music in many
other ways as well. We manufacture professional recording
equipment, we design concert halls and we assist artists at
concerts with set up and sound tuning.
This knowledge and experience benefits our production of
audio components in many ways. We introduced our first HiFi
(High Fidelity) turntable in 1955. Thereafter we were one of the first
to offer mass-produced, high quality audio equipment,
and introduced many legendary stereo components.
We hope you enjoy the genuine HiFi experience of
Yamaha Natural Sound.
Excellence in Audio Achievement
1922: We introduced a high-quality handwound phonograph.
Since 1955, we have released many HiFi
components, including turntables, tuners,
integrated amplifiers, control amplifiers,
power amplifiers and speakers.

• If you use two sets (A and B), the impedance of each speaker
must be 8 Ω or higher. When only using one set of speakers (A

• Do not let the bare speaker wires touch each other or do not let
them touch any metal part of this unit. This could damage this
unit and/or the speakers.
14 En
• All connections must be correct: L (left) to L, R (right) to R,
“+” to “+”, and “–” to “–”. If the connections are faulty, no
sound will be heard from the speakers, and if the polarity of the
speaker connections is incorrect, the sound will be unnatural
and lack bass. Also, refer to the owner’s manual for each of
your components.
• Connect your turntable to the GND terminal to reduce noise in
the signal. However, you may hear less noise without the
connection to the GND terminal for some turntables.

• Because the power amplifier of A-S1000 is of the floating
balanced type, the following types of connections are not
possible:
– Connecting with the left channel “–” terminal and the right
channel “–” terminal as well as “+” terminals (Fig. 1).
– Deliberately connecting with the left/right channel “–”
terminals and metal part on the rear panel of this unit, as well
as accidentally touching them.
– Connecting with the left channel “–” terminal and the right
channel “–” terminal inverted (cross connection, Fig. 2).
• Do not connect your active subwoofer to the SPEAKERS L/R

■ Connecting the speakers using the
banana plug
(Except for Europe models)
First, tighten the knob and then insert the banana
plug into the end of the corresponding terminal.
Remove approximately 10 mm (0.4 in) of
insulation from the end of each speaker
cable and twist the exposed wires of the
cable together to prevent short circuits.

■ Bi-wire connection
The bi-wire connection separates the woofer from the
combined midrange and tweeter section. A bi-wire
compatible speaker has four binding post terminals. These
two sets of terminals allow the speaker to be split into two
independent sections. With these connections, the mid and
high frequency drivers are connected to one set of
terminals and the low frequency driver to another set of
terminals.
