CAUTION: Read this before operating your unit.
1.
To assure the finest performance, please read this
manual carefully. Keep it in a safe place for future
reference.
13.
Do not connect any audio equipment to the AC outlet
on the rear panel if the equipment requires more power
than the outlet is rated to provide.
2.
Install this unit in a cool, dry, clean place – away from
windows, heat sources, sources of excessive vibration,
dust, moisture and cold. Avoid sources of humming
(transformers, motors). To prevent fire or electrical
shock, do not expose the unit to rain or water.
14.
3.
Never open the cabinet. If something drops into the
set, contact your dealer.
VOLTAGE SELECTOR
(China and General models only)
The voltage selector on the rear panel of this unit
must be set for your local main voltage BEFORE
plugging into the AC main supply.
Voltages are 110/120/220/240 V AC, 50/60 Hz.
4.
Do not use force on switches, controls or connection
wires. When moving the unit, first disconnect the
power plug and the wires connected to other
equipments. Never pull the wires themselves.
5.
The openings on the unit cover assure proper
ventilation of the unit. If these openings are
obstructed, the temperature inside the unit will rise
rapidly; therefore, avoid placing objects against these
openings. Install the unit in a well-ventilated area to
prevent fire or damage.
<Europe, U.K. and China models only>
Be sure to allow a space of at least 20 cm behind, 20
cm on both sides and 30 cm above the top panel of the
unit to prevent fire or damage.
6.
The voltage used must be the same as that specified
on this unit. Using this unit with a higher voltage than
specified is dangerous and may result in fire or other
accidents. YAMAHA will not be held responsible for
any damage resulting from use of this unit with a
voltage other than specified.
7.
Always set the VOLUME control to “∞” before starting
the audio source play. Increase the volume gradually
to an appropriate level after the play has been started.
8.
Do not attempt to clean the unit with chemical solvents
as this might damage the finish. Use a clean, dry
cloth.
9.
To prevent electric shock, match wide blade of plug to
wide slot and fully insert.
This Class B digital apparatus complies with Canadian
ICES-003.
WARNING
Do not change the IMPEDANCE SELECTOR switch
setting while the power to this unit is on, otherwise
this unit may be damaged.
If this unit fails to turn on when the POWER switch is
pressed:
The IMPEDANCE SELECTOR switch may not be set to
either end. If so, set the switch to either end when this
unit’s power supply is completely cut off.
(U.S.A. model)
Be sure to read the “TROUBLESHOOTING” section
regarding common operating errors before concluding
that the unit is faulty.
When not planning to use this unit for a long period
(ie., vacation, etc.), disconnect the AC power plug from
the wall outlet.
11.
To prevent lightning damage, disconnect the AC power
plug when there is an electric storm.

12.
When this unit is turned off by pressing the STANDBY/ON
switch on the front panel or the remote control, the
STANDBY indicator on the front panel lights up. This state
is called the standby mode. In this mode, this unit is
designed to consume a small amount of power. This
unit’s power supply is completely cut off from the AC line
only when the POWER switch on the front panel is set in
the OFF position or the AC power cord is disconnected.
Grounding or polarization – Precautions should be
taken so that the grounding or polarization of an
appliance is not defeated.

NOTES ABOUT THE REMOTE CONTROL
Since the remote control will be used for many of this unit’s
control operations, you should begin by installing the
supplied batteries.
1. Turn the remote control over and remove the battery
compartment cover by sliding it in the direction of the
arrow.
2. Insert the batteries (AA, R6, UM-3 type) according to the
polarity markings on the inside of the battery
compartment.
3. Close the battery compartment cover.

Battery replacement
If you notice that the remote control must be used closer to
the main unit, the batteries are weak. Replace both
batteries with new ones.
Notes
● Use AA, R6, UM-3 batteries.
● Be sure the polarities are correct. (See the illustration
inside the battery compartment.)
● Remove the batteries if the remote control is not used for
an extended period of time.
● If batteries leak, dispose of them immediately. Avoid
touching the leaked material and contact with clothing,
etc. Clean the battery compartment thoroughly before
installing new batteries.

Notes
● The area between the remote control and the main unit
must be clear of large obstacles.
● Do not expose the remote control sensor to strong
lighting, in particular, an inverter type fluorescent lamp;
otherwise, the remote control may not work properly. If
necessary, position the main unit away from direct
lighting.

m Connecting speakers
Connect the SPEAKERS terminals to your speakers with
the wire with the proper gauge (keep it as short as
possible). If the connections are faulty, no sound will be
heard from the speakers. Make sure that the + and –
polarity markings of the speaker wires are observed and set
correctly. If these wires are reversed, the sound will be
unnatural and lack bass.
● One or two speaker systems can be connected to this
unit. If you use only one speaker system, connect it to
either the SPEAKERS A or B terminals.
● Use speakers with the specified impedance shown on the
rear of this unit.
Caution
Do not let the bare speaker wires touch each other or
any metal part of this unit. This could damage this unit
or the speakers, or both.

the PRE OUT and MAIN IN terminals, make sure that the
CD/DVD DIRECT AMP switch and the PURE DIRECT
switch on the front panel are turned off.
● When you use this unit as a power amplifier, connect the
output terminals of an external control amplifier etc. to
this unit’s MAIN IN terminals. In this case, this unit’s

Using the CD/DVD DIRECT AMP switch
You can enjoy the purest possible sound from your CD or
DVD player by pressing this switch. The indicator above it
lights up. With this function on, input signals from the CD or
DVD player are sent directly to the built-in special amplifier
for CD/DVD bypassing the INPUT selector, the BASS,
TREBLE, BALANCE, LOUDNESS controls and the PRE
OUT/MAIN IN terminals, and then sent to the power
amplifier. This signal routing reproduces the purest sound
eliminating any alterations to the CD or DVD signals.
TREBLE: Turn this knob clockwise to increase (or counter
clockwise to decrease) the high frequency
response.
Adjusting the continuously variable
LOUDNESS control
This control compensates for the human ears’ loss of
sensitivity to high and low-frequency ranges at low volume.
This control is adjustable to retain full tonal range at any
volume level.
