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.
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.
3.
Never open the cabinet. If something drops into the set, contact
your dealer.
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 equipment. Never pull the wires themselves.
5.
The openings on the cabinet assure proper ventilation of the unit.
If these openings are obstructed, the temperature inside the
cabinet will rise rapidly and eventually damage the circuits.
Therefore, avoid placing objects against these openings and do
not install the unit where the flow of air through the ventilation
openings could be impeded.
6.
Always set the VOLUME control to “– ∞” before starting the audio
source play. Increase the volume gradually to an appropriate level
after playback has been started.
7.
8.
9.
Do not attempt to clean the unit with chemical solvents; this might
damage the finish. Use a clean, dry cloth.
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 long periods of time (ie.,
vacation, etc.), disconnect the AC power plug from the wall outlet.
10. To prevent lightning damage, disconnect the AC power plug and
disconnect the antenna cable when there is an electrical storm.
11. Grounding or polarization – Precautions should be taken so that
the grounding or polarization of an appliance is not defeated.
IMPORTANT
Please record the serial number of this unit in the space below.
Serial No.:
The serial number is located on the rear of the unit.
Retain this Owner’s Manual in a safe place for future reference.
WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO
NOT EXPOSE THIS UNIT TO RAIN OR MOISTURE.
For U.K. customers
If the socket outlets in the home are not suitable for the plug
supplied with this appliance, it should be cut off and an
appropriate 3 pin plug fitted. For details, refer to the
instructions described below.
Note: The plug severed from the mains lead must be
destroyed, as a plug with bared flexible cord is hazardous if
engaged in a live socket outlet.
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR U.K. MODEL
IMPORTANT:
The wire in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with
the following code:
Blue: NEUTRAL
Brown: LIVE
The colours of the wires in the mains lead of this apparatus
may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying
the terminals in your plug. Proceed as follows: the wire
which is coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal
which is marked with the letter N or coloured BLACK. The
wire which is coloured BROWN must be connected to the
terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured RED.
Making sure that neither core is connected to the earth
terminal of the three pin plug.
12. AC outlet
Do not connect audio equipment to the AC outlet on the rear panel
if that equipment requires more power than the outlet is rated to
provide.
The apparatus is not disconnected from the AC power
source as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if
the apparatus itself is turned off.
13. Voltage Selector (General Model 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 110/120/220/240V AC, 50/60 Hz.

CONNECTIONS
• Before attempting to make any connections to or from this unit, be sure to first switch OFF the power to this unit and to any other
components to which connections are being made.
• When making connections between this unit and other components, be sure all connections are made correctly, that is to say L
(left) to L, R (right) to R, “+” to “+” and “–” to “–”. Also, refer to the owner’s manual for each component to be connected to this
unit.

: Refer to “ABOUT THE ACCESSORY
TERMINALS” on page 5.
Connect the SPEAKERS terminals to your speakers with wire
of the proper gauge, cut to be as short as possible. If the
connections are faulty, no sound will be heard from the
speakers. Make sure that the polarity of the speaker wires is
correct, that is, + and – markings are observed. If these wires
are reversed, the sound will be unnatural and will lack bass.
Do not let the 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.
●
●
●
One or two speaker systems can be connected to this unit.
If you connect 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.
Banana Plug connections are also possible (except for
Scandinavian model). Simply insert the Banana Plug
connector into the corresponding terminal.

AC OUTLET(S)
REMOTE CONTROL (PHONO) connector
(Europe and General models)
............................................................3 SWITCHED OUTLETS
(Australia and U.K. models)
...............................................................1 SWITCHED OUTLET
Use these to connect the power cords from your components
to this unit.
The power to the SWITCHED outlets is controlled by this unit’s
POWER switch or the provided remote control transmitter’s
POWER key. These outlets will supply power to any
component whenever this unit is turned on.
The maximum power (total power consumption of
components) that can be connected to the SWITCHED AC
OUTLET(S) is 100 watts.
If you have a YAMAHA turntable with a terminal for remote
control, connect it to this connector by using the cable provided
with the turntable. This connection allows you to control the
turntable from the provided remote control transmitter.
GND terminal (For turntable use)
Connecting the ground wire of the turntable to this terminal will
normally minimize hum, but in some cases better results may
be obtained with the ground wire disconnected.

You can enjoy the purest possible sound from your CD input
source by setting this switch ON. By doing so, the CD audio
signal bypasses the BASS, TREBLE, BALANCE and
LOUDNESS controls, eliminating any alterations to the audio
signal.
Connect the headphones to the PHONES jack. When listening
with headphones privately, set both the SPEAKERS A and B
switches to the OFF position.

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

Notes
● There should be no large obstacles between the remote
control transmitter and the main unit.
● If the remote control sensor is directly illuminated by strong
lighting (especially an inverter type of fluorescent lamp etc.),
it might cause the remote control transmitter not to work
correctly. In this case, reposition the main unit to avoid
direct lighting.
If the unit fails to operate normally, check the following points to determine whether the fault can be corrected by the simple
measures suggested. If it cannot be corrected, or if the fault is not listed in the SYMPTOM column, disconnect the power cord and
contact your authorized YAMAHA dealer or service center for help.
