Set this system by allowing enough spaces around and behind the main unit to assure good ventilation. Be sure not to place
another unit or any object on top of the main unit to prevent the ventilation holes from being obstructed. Otherwise, it may
cause fire or damage to the main unit.
Caution
When placing the speakers apart from the main unit, be sure to allow spaces of at least 20 cm (3-15/16”) above, behind and
on both sides of the main unit. If the main unit is put inside a rack, the front of it must be fully opened.
* The values must be applied to China and Singapore models only.
Español
Instale el sistema dejando suficiente espacio alrededor y detrás de la unidad principal para garantizar una buena circulación
de aire. No instale otro aparato o un objeto encima de la unidad principal porque obstruirá los orificios de salida de aire.
Puede provocar un fuego o dañar la unidad principal.
Precaución
Cuando instale los altavoces alejados de la unidad principal, asegúrese de dejar un espacio de por lo menos 20 cm encima,
detrás y a ambos lados de la unidad principal. Si se coloca la unidad principal dentro de un mueble, no debe cerrar la tapa
delantera.
* Los valores corresponden exclusivamente a los modelos para China y Singapur.

Precautions: Read this before operating your system
■ Choose the installation location of this system carefully. Avoid
placing it in direct sunlight or close to a source of heat. Also
avoid locations subject to vibration and excessive dust, heat,
cold or moisture. Keep it away from sources of hum such as
transformers and electric motors.
■ Do not operate this system upside-down. It may overheat,
possibly causing damage.
■ Never open the cabinet. If something drops into the set, contact
your dealer.
■ The openings on the main unit cover assure proper ventilation
of the main unit. If these openings are obstructed, the
temperature inside the main unit will rise rapidly. Avoid
placing objects against these openings, and install the main
unit in a well-ventilated area to prevent fire or damage.
■ Always set the VOLUME control to minimum before starting
an audio source play. Increase the volume gradually to an
appropriate level after play has started.
■ When not planning to use this system for a long period of time
(ie., vacation, etc.), disconnect the AC power plug from the
wall outlet.
■ Grounding or polarization – Precautions should be taken so
that the grounding or polarization of this system is not
defeated.
■ Do not use force on switches, controls or connection wires.
When moving the main unit, first disconnect the power plug
and the wires connected to other equipments. Never pull the
wire itself.
■ If an external appliance (TV, radio, etc.) interferes with the
operation of this system, move the main unit away from such
appliance.
■ The voltage to be used must be the same as that specified on
this system. Using this system with a higher voltage than
specified is dangerous and may result in a fire or other types of
accidents causing damage. YAMAHA will not be held
responsible for any damage resulting from use of this system
with a voltage other than specified.
■ The sound level at a given volume setting depends on speaker
location and other factors. Care should be taken to avoid
exposure to sudden high levels of sound, which may occur
when turning this system on with the volume control setting at
high. Also avoid exposure to continuous high levels of sound.
■ Sudden temperature changes and storage or operation in an
extremely humid environment may cause condensation inside
the cabinet. Condensation can cause this system to
malfunction.
To eliminate condensation:
• Pickup
Leave the power on with no disc loaded until normal play
becomes possible (about 1 hour).
• Tape head
Leave the power on with no tape loaded until normal
playback becomes possible (about 1 hour).
Note:
If condensation forms on the tape head, dirt or dust may
accumulate during use.
• Remote control
Wipe off condensation on the transmission window with a
soft cloth before operating this system.
■ The carousel will turn when you open the disc tray by pressing
OPEN/CLOSE; therefore, make sure the carousel stopped
moving completely before you perform further operations such
as placing or removing a disc from the disc tray. Otherwise,
you may cause damage to your discs, or you might injure
yourself.
■ Do not attempt to clean this system with chemical solvents as
this might damage the finish. Use a clean, dry cloth.
■ Be sure to read the “Troubleshooting” section regarding
common operating errors before concluding that this system is
faulty.
■ To prevent lightning damage, disconnect the AC power plug
and the antenna cable when there is an electric storm.
■ Do not plug the AC power plug to the wall socket before you
finish all connections.
■ Never allow metallic items (e.g. screwdrivers, tools, etc.) to
come near the tape deck’s record/playback head assembly.
Doing so may not only scratch or damage the head’s mirrorsmooth finish, it may change the magnetic characteristics of
the heads, causing a deterioration in reproduction performance
quality.
■ Although the tape deck’s record/playback heads are of high
quality with outstanding reproduction characteristics, they can
get dirty through the use of old tapes or from dust
accumulation over time. This can have a serious effect on
reproduction quality. Clean the heads regularly with
commonly available head cleaners or with cleaning solutions.
E-1
English
■ To assure the finest performance, please read this manual
carefully. Keep it in a safe place for future reference.
Precautions: Read this before operating your system
This system is not disconnected from the AC power source as
long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if this system
itself is turned off. This state is called the standby mode.
In this state, this system is designed to consume a certain
amount of power.
Note
Please check the copyright laws in your country to record
from records, compact discs, radio, etc. Recording of
copyright materials may infringe copyright laws.
CAUTION FOR CARRYING THE MAIN UNIT
Be sure not to carry or tip the main unit with discs
in it.
CAUTION FOR MOVING THE MAIN UNIT
Before moving the main unit, first remove all discs from the
disc tray and close the tray by pressing the
OPEN/
CLOSE button. After you confirm that “NO DISC” lights up
on the display, turn this system into the standby mode by
pressing the STANDBY/ON switch, and then disconnect the
power plug from the AC outlet.
Voltage Selector (China and General models only)
The voltage selector on the rear panel of the main 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.
FREQUENCY STEP switch
(China and General models only)
Because the interstation frequency spacing differs in different
areas, set the FREQUENCY STEP switch (located at the
rear) according to the frequency spacing in your area.
Be sure to change the setting of this switch with the AC
supply lead of this system disconnected from the AC outlet.

CD
Never attempt to play a disc other than specified above with the CD/Video CD player because it may cause a damage to this system.
VIDEO CD
Video CDs are classified into two types, version 1.1 and 2.0. The CD/Video CD player can play both types.
Video CD (version 1.1): With the same operation as compact discs, you can enjoy sounds and pictures (movies).
Video CD (version 2.0): In addition to a normal play which is the same as version 1.1, you can enjoy a Playback Control operation.
(For details on Playback Control, refer to page 20.)
To prevent a malfunction of this
system:
• Do not use any nonstandard shaped disc
(heart etc.) available on the market
because it might damage the system.
• Discs are not affected by small particles of dust or fingerprints
on their playing surface, but even so they should be kept clean.
Wipe by using a clean, dry cloth. Do not wipe with a circular
motion; wipe straight outward from the center.
• Do not use a disc with tape, seals, or
paste on it. If you use such a disc, a disc may get stuck
in the system, or damage to the system may result.
Notes about handling discs
• Always handle the disc with care so that its surface is not
scratched.
• Do not try to clean the disc’s surface by using any type of disc
cleaner, record spray, anti-static spray or liquid, or any other
chemical-based liquid because such substances might
irreparably damage the disc’s surface.
• Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high temperature or
high humidity for a long period of time because these might
warp or otherwise damage the disc.
• Discs are not subjected to wear during play, but damage to the
disc surface when the disc is being handled can adversely
affect the disc’s play.
No!
• Be sure to use a felt-tip pen or similar writing tool when
writing on the label side of the disc. Do not use a ball-point
pen, pencil, or other hard-tipped writing tool, as these may
damage the disc and may adversely affect the disc’s play.
• Do not warp discs.
To play an 8-cm CD
• When a disc is not currently being used, remove it from the
system and store in an appropriate case.
Place it in the inner recessed area of the disc tray. Do not put a
normal (12-cm) CD on top of an 8-cm CD.
• When removing or storing a disc, be careful not to scratch the
playing surface.

On both sides of and at approximately the
same height as the TV.
Precisely between the front speakers.
Behind your listening position, facing
slightly inward. About 1.8 m (approx. six
feet) from the floor.
The position of the subwoofer is not so
critical because low bass tones are not highly
directional. However, we recommend that
you place the subwoofer anywhere in front of
your listening position.
■ Mounting the center speaker

Place the speaker on top of the TV or on the floor under the TV or
inside the TV rack so that it is stable.
When placing the speaker on top of the TV, put the provided velcro
strips at two corners on both the bottom of the speaker and top of
the TV to prevent the speaker from falling.
Preparations and connections
■ Mounting the rear speakers
60 mm
To mount the rear speakers by using commercially
available speaker stands
The provided mounting bracket has 1 pair of screw holes (at an
interval of 60 mm). They are for mounting the speaker on a speaker
stand.
* These screw holes can be used with M4 screws only.
Mounting bracket
Note
It is recommended that you connect the speaker cords to the
speaker’s terminals before attaching the bracket to the speaker.
1 Attach the bracket to the bottom of the speaker by using the
provided screw so that the convex part of the bracket fits in the
grooved part of the speaker as shown left.
2 Mount the speaker on the speaker stand by using the screw holes
on the bracket.
Screw
To mount the rear speakers directly on the wall
Tapping screw (Available
at the hardware store)

Wall or wall support
Min.
12 mm
If desired, you can hang the speaker on the protruding screws on
the wall without using the bracket.
Fasten screws into a firm wall or wall support as shown left, and
hang the holes of the speaker on the protruding screws.
* Make sure that the screws are securely caught by a narrow part
of the holes.
WARNING
• Each of the rear speakers weighs 0.8 kg (1 lbs. 12 oz.). Do not
mount them on thin plywood or soft wall surface material, as the
screws may come out of the flimsy surface, causing the speakers
to fall and be damaged, or result in personal injury.
• Do not fasten the speakers to the wall with nails, adhesives, or
other unstable hardware. Long-term use and vibrations may
cause them to fall.
• To avoid accidents resulting from tripping over loose speaker
cords, fix them to the wall.
• Select a proper position on the wall to mount the speaker and the
stand so that no one will injure his/her head or face with the edge
of the stand.

Speaker balance adjustment
You can adjust the sound output level balance between the front, center, and rear speakers using the built-in test tone
generator. This is important for the best performance of the built-in Dolby Pro Logic surround decoder.
You can adjust the sound output level of center and rear speakers from –21 to +10 and the balance of the sound output
levels of the left and right front speakers from L–6 to R–6.
The adjustment of each speaker output level should be done from your listening position with the remote control.
Otherwise, the result may not be satisfactory.

General information
• Do not use C-120 tapes or poor quality tapes, since they
can cause malfunctions.
• Before loading a tape on the tray, tighten the tape slack
with a pen or pencil.
• Tapes have removable tabs which prevent accidental
recording or erasing from taking place. Removing the
tab on the top left corner protects the side facing you
from erasure. Cover the tab holes with adhesive tape to
erase or record again.
• The tape deck features an automatic tape selector. Just
load the tape, and the type of tape being used will be
sensed automatically.
• The tape deck can play back metal tapes as well as
normal or high position tapes; however, recording
cannot be done on metal tapes with good sound quality.
Dolby B Type Noise Reduction
Dolby noise reduction is an extremely effective method of
reducing undesirable background hiss on tapes. The builtin tape deck incorporates Dolby B type noise reduction
system.
DOLBY NR is useful for both recording and playback; be
sure that the same noise reduction is used on recording
and playback.
About the tape counter
The tape deck is equipped with a tape counter that is
useful for searching and locating a desired point on the
tape. The tape counter is shown on the display.
Pressing (stop) when the deck is being stopped will
reset the tape counter to “0000”.

The Sound Field Processor built into this system enables you to enjoy listening to a source with an ambience of actual
concert hall or three-dimensional acoustics. This system provides preset sound field programs shown below. You can enjoy
an excellent sound field by selecting any one of them and by adding any other desired adjustments.
This system also incorporates a Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoder for multi-channel sound reproduction of Dolby
Surround encoded video sources. The operation of the Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoder can be controlled by selecting a
corresponding sound field program.
■ Sound field programs
Program
Feature
PRO LOGIC
This program is used for playing sources encoded with Dolby Surround.
Dolby Pro Logic Surround uses four discrete channels and five speakers to reproduce realistic and dynamic sound
effects: two main channels (left and right), a center channel for dialogue, and a rear channel for special sound
effects. The rear channel reproduces sound within a narrow frequency range.
3 STEREO
This program is used for simplified play of Dolby Surround encoded sources. With this program, sound effects are
outputted from the front left and right speakers and no sound from the rear speakers.
YMERSION
HALL
YMERSION is Yamaha’s proprietary technology that enhances the spread of a normal stereo source play sound,
creating three-dimensional acoustics using only two speakers.
This program presents you with an ambience of actual concert hall by adding effects as sonic reflections or
reberverations that create sound environment of a hall. Sound effects are outputted from the front and rear speakers.
Orchestra and opera music is suited for this sound field.
