We Want You Listening For A Lifetime
YAMAHA and the Electronic Industries Association’s
Consumer Electronics Group want you to get the most
out of your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One
that lets the sound come through loud and clear without
annoying blaring or distortion – and, most importantly,
without affecting your sensitive hearing.
Since hearing damage from loud sounds
is often undetectable until it is too late,
YAMAHA and the Electronic Industries
Association’s Consumer Electronics
Group recommend you to avoid prolonged
exposure from excessive volume levels.
iii
Cautions
Please read the following operating precautions before use:
• When you disconnect the AC adaptor from the AC
outlet, hold the plug, not the cord.
• If you plan not to use the YST-MS35Ds for a
while, disconnect the AC adaptor from the AC outlet.
• Although the YST-MS35D speakers are magnetically shielded, keep floppy disks and tapes away
from them.
• Always disconnect the AC adaptor from the AC
outlet before making any connections.
• The YST-MS35Ds may cause picture distortion
when located close to a television or computer
monitor. In this case, move them away a short distance.
• The YST-MS35Ds do not contain any user serviceable parts. Refer all servicing to your Yamaha
dealer.
• Avoid sources of hum (transformers, motors). To
prevent fire or electrical shock, do not expose to
rain and water.
• Never open the cabinet. If a foreign object drops
into the set, contact your dealer, and do not use the
YST-MS35Ds. Otherwise, you may cause a fire.
• Do not use force on switches, knobs, or cables.
When you move the YST-MS35D, first turn off the
power to the speakers, then disconnect the AC
adaptor from the AC outlet and the cables from the
connected devices.
• Do not expose the YST-MS35Ds to temperature
extremes, direct sunlight, excessive dust, humidity,
or vibration.
• Position the YST-MS35Ds on a level, stable surface. Do not drop the YST-MS35Ds, apply excessive force to their controls, or put heavy items on
top of them.
• Do not place small metal objects on the speakers.
Otherwise, the object may fall, possibly causing an
injury.
• To protect the YST-MS35D speakers, avoid microphone feedback, continuous and excessive output
from electronic musical instruments, and excessive
signal distortion.
• If the YST-MS35Ds are located close to fluorescent or neon lights, a slight hum may be heard. In
this case, relocate the YST-MS35Ds away from the
light.
• Always turn the volume control counterclockwise
to the minimum before starting to play the audio
source: increase the volume gradually to an appropriate level after the playback has started.
• Though this speaker is a magnetically shielded
type, there may be some influence on the monitor
picture depending on the type of monitor or the
placement of the speaker. In such a case, place the
speaker further apart from the monitor until there
is no influence on the monitor picture.
• When placing the provided AC adaptor on the
desk, etc., be sure to fix the adaptor on the desk,
etc. to prevent it from falling. If the adaptor falls, it
may cause personal injury or damage to the adaptor and/or other equipment.

Introducing the YST-MS35D Speaker System
Thank you for purchasing the Yamaha YST-MS35D Powered Multimedia Speakers.
The YST-MS35D Multimedia Speakers utilize Advanced Yamaha Active Servo Technology, which offers exceptionally high performance, allowing these compact speakers to produce a rich bass sound. They also employ USB technology to create a computer-based listening environment that is far superior to conventional multimedia speakers.
They reproduce a clearer sound, with less noise and distortion, and never require a soundcard!
The YST-MS35D includes three speaker components: a left satellite speaker, a right satellite speaker, and a subwoofer.
Note: Do not connect the PC using the USB cable before installing the USB driver.
Please inspect the package contents thoroughly for damage. If any item is missing or damaged, please contact the

Macintosh computer
■ Connections and setup
1. Connect the power cord (or AC adaptor) to a
suitable AC outlet.
2. Start the Macintosh.
3. Connect this unit to a USB port on the computer using the supplied USB cable.
The driver software for USB audio is automatically installed.
4. Press
button to turn on this unit.
Checking sound output and adjusting volume
1. Make the following operations on the front
panel of this unit.
a) Press button to turn on this unit.
b) Use the volume control to adjust the volume.
2. Check that the sound is output normally by outputting “Alert Sounds”, etc. from “Sound” on
the “Control Panels” on the Macintosh.
3. Adjust the volume by dragging the “Sound” tab
on the “Control Panels”. Set the tab between
the center and max. position.
Note:
• The sound output destination cannot be changed
from “Choose a device for sound output” on the
“Control Panels”. When using the internal speaker
of the Macintosh as the sound output destination,
disconnect the USB cable connecting this unit and
the Macintosh.
• When using headphones with this unit connected
to the USB port on the Macintosh, use the headphone jack on this unit, not the jack on the Macintosh.
• Since the Macintosh issues a start-up sound at
power-on before the sound signal via the USB connection is activated, the start-up sound cannot be
issued via the USB connection. To play the startup sound via this unit, you need a separate analog
connection between this unit and the Macintosh.
(When USB MIX is set to “ON” from the Setup
Panel of the Application Software, you can mix the
start-up sound via the analog connection with the
same sound via the USB connection without making any change in the input selector settings.)
Connecting to a non-USB system
You can input analog audio signals into Inputs 1 and 2 (3.5 mm stereo mini plug input jacks) on the rear of subwoofer and use the YST-MS35D system like conventional multimedia speakers. (For example, you can connect the
outputs from a soundcard.)
Some games software does not support USB. In this case, instead of using the USB connection, connect Input 1 or 2
on the rear of subwoofer to the audio output jack on your computer using a 3.5 mm stereo mini plug cable, and specify your card type. (For move information on setting, consult your computer manual or computer dealer.)
Enjoying your YST-MS35D Speaker System
Adjusting the Volume, Bass, and Treble
First adjust the volume levels, bass, and treble using software controls (such as the Windows 98 Volume Control
panel). After adjustment, use the VOLUME control on the right speaker to set the volume level of the speakers.
