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
We
Want You
Group recommend you avoid prolonged

exposure to excessive volume levels.
1. This unit is a sophisticated stereo amplifier. To ensure proper
operation for the best possible performance, please read this
manual carefully.
2. Choose the installation location of your unit carefully. Avoid
placing it in direct sunlight or close to 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 or motors.
3. Do not open the cabinet as this may result in damage to the
unit or electrical shock. If a foreign object should get into the
unit, contact your local dealer.
4. When removing the power plug from the wall outlet, always
pull directly on the plug; never pull the cord itself.
5. Do not apply excessive force when operating switches and
knobs.
6. When moving the unit, be sure to first pull out the power plug
and remove all cords connecting the unit to other equipment.
7. Do not attempt to clean this unit with chemical solvents as
this may damage the finish. Use a clean, dry cloth.
8. Always set the VOLUME control to “∞” before playing the
source. Increase the volume gradually to a desired level after
the source has started playing.
9. When not planning to use this unit for long periods of time
(e.g., vacation, etc.), disconnect the AC power plug from the
electrical outlet.
10. Do not connect audio equipment to the AC outlet on the rear
panel if the equipment requires more power than the outlet is
rated to provide.
11. The openings on the cabinet assure proper ventilation of the
unit. If these openings are obstructed, the temperature inside
the cabinet will rise rapidly, damaging the unit or causing a
fire. Avoid blocking the ventilation openings and make sure
that the unit is well ventilated. Allow at least 5 cm (2 in) of
space above and behind the unit and at least 3 cm (1-1/4 in)
of space to the left and right of the unit.
12. Be sure to read the “TROUBLESHOOTING” section of this
manual for advice on common operating errors before
concluding that your unit is faulty.
13. Keep this manual in a safe place for future reference.
14. Voltage Selector (General and China model only)
The voltage selector on the rear panel of this unit must
be set for your local mains voltage BEFORE plugging in
the AC mains supply. (Voltage selector adjustable
between 110/120/220/240 V AC 50/60 Hz)

VOLUME
÷ With Sound Multiplex sources, the volume of
the original vocals and the music can be
adjusted by using the MPX BALANCE
control.
÷ MUSIC VOL control lets you balance your
vocals and the music by adjusting the music
volume level.
÷ VOCAL AID replaces the original vocals with
your voice when you sing.
÷ The built in KARAOKE DSS sound field
processor has four different settings
(BALLAD, POPS, JAZZ, and ROCK) to let you
obtain the desired atmosphere according to
the music type.
÷ ONE TOUCH KARAOKE lets you cut the
original vocals from general stereo sources
so they can be used as karaoke sources.
÷ Your karaoke play can be recorded with a
cassette deck connected to this unit.
÷ High-power built-in amplifier
What are the Sound multiplex sources?
With a Sound Multiplex tape designed for karaoke use or a
sound multiplex disc (laser karaoke disc, etc.), generally,
the right channel contains both background music and
original vocals, and the left channel contains only
background music.
Thus, these sources allow you to select only the
background music, or to adjust the volume between
original vocals and music by rotating the MPX BALANCE
control.
Note:
There are also other types of karaoke sources, with
which the sound adjustments of this unit may not function
properly. Please confirm the type is the karaoke source
you have purchased, before reproducing it with this unit.

Connecting speakers
Connecting the AC OUTLETs
Connect the SPEAKERS terminals to your speakers with
wire of the proper gauge cut as short as possible. If the
connections are faulty, no sound will be heard from the
speakers. Make sure that the polarity (+ and – markings) of
the speaker wires are correct. If these wires are reversed,
the sound will be unnatural and will lack bass. Do not let
bare speaker wires touch each other and do not let them
touch the metal parts of this unit as this could damage this
unit and/or speakers.
÷ Use speakers with an impedance of 6 ohms or more.
Using speakers with an impedance of less than 6
ohms may result in malfunction or damage to this
amplifier.
÷ Do not connect more than one pair in parallel to this
amplifier.
This unit is equipped with two UNSWITCHED AC OUTLETs
for connecting the power cords of other components to this
unit.
The power to these outlets is not controlled with this unit’s
POWER switch. They will continuously supply power to any
component connected to them.
The total maximum power consumption of components
connected to these outlets must not exceed 100 watts.
