GND terminal (for turntable use)
PRE OUT/MAIN IN terminals
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.
Removing the jumper pins enables this unit to independently
perform the functions of a control amplifier and a power
amplifier. These terminals are for connection of a signalprocessing system such as a graphic equalizer or sound
processor.
If a sound processor or other external unit is connected
between these terminals, the VOLUME control of this unit can
be used for overall adjustment of the sound level.
To connect such a unit, remove the jumper pins from the PRE
OUT/MAIN IN terminals, connect the inputs of that unit to the
PRE OUT terminals and its outputs to the MAIN IN terminals.
For details, refer to the owner’s manual included with the unit to
be connected.
REMOTE CONTROL (PHONO) connector
AX-592 and AX-892 only
If you have a YAMAHA turntable with a terminal for remote
control, connect it to this connector using the cable provided
with the turntable. This connection allows you to control the
turntable with the remote control.

Setting the SUBSONIC FILTER switch
AX-592 and AX-892 only
You can enjoy the purest possible sound from your sources by
setting this switch so that the indicator illuminates. The signals
bypass the BASS, TREBLE, BALANCE and LOUDNESS
controls, the SUBSONIC FILTER switch (AX-592 and AX-892
only), and the PRE OUT/MAIN IN terminals (AX-592 and AX892 only), eliminating any alterations to the signals.
English
Using the PURE DIRECT switch
When this switch is set ON, undesirable ultra-low-frequency
signals caused by turntable rumble or warped records can be
eliminated without losing sound quality.
ON
OFF
PURE DIRECT
SUBSONIC
FILTER
Using the CD DIRECT AMP switch
Using the MUTING switch
AX-892 only
For the best CD sound, set this switch so the indicator
illuminates. The CD input signal is sent to a separate circuit,
bypassing the INPUT selector, BASS, TREBLE, BALANCE
and LOUDNESS controls, SUBSONIC FILTER switch (AX-592
and AX-892 only), and the PRE OUT/MAIN IN terminals (AX592 and AX-892 only) and then goes directly to the amplifier.
This signal routing ensures the purest CD sound, eliminating
any alterations to the original CD signals.
Selecting ON temporarily reduces the volume.

CD DIRECT AMP
Note
If both the CD DIRECT AMP and PURE DIRECT switches are
on, only the CD DIRECT AMP switch will function.
WARNING
When the LOUDNESS control has been set, if the PURE DIRECT switch or the CD DIRECT AMP switch is pressed, the sound
will suddenly increase and may damage your ears or the speaker (the LOUDNESS control function may be bypassed).
Therefore, only press the PURE DIRECT switch or the CD DIRECT AMP switch after lowering the volume or after checking
that the LOUDNESS control is properly set.
