• Under its default settings, the unit is configured for 8-ohm
speakers. When connecting 6-ohm speakers, set the unit’s
speaker impedance to “6  MIN”. For details, see “Setting the
speaker impedance” in “Owner’s Manual”.

Connect the front speakers (1/2)
to the FRONT (//\) terminals.
• Use a subwoofer equipped with built-in amplifier.
• The illustrations of the unit (rear) used in this section are of the
RX-V775.

• Before connecting the speakers, remove the unit’s power cable
from the AC wall outlet and turn off the subwoofer.
• Ensure that the core wires of the speaker cable do not touch
each other or come into contact with the unit’s metal areas. This
may damage the unit or the speakers. If the speaker cables
short circuit, “Check SP Wires” will appear on the front display
when the unit is turned on.

Speaker cables have two wires. One is for connecting the
negative (–) terminals of the unit and the speaker, and the
other is for the positive (+) terminals. If the wires are
colored to prevent confusion, connect the black wire to
the negative and the other wire to the positive terminals.

5 Optimizing the speaker settings automatically (YPAO)
1
The following screen appears on the TV.
The Yamaha Parametric room Acoustic Optimizer (YPAO) function detects speaker connections, measures the
distances from them to your listening position(s), and then automatically optimizes the speaker settings, such as
volume balance and acoustic parameters, to suit your room.
• During the measuring process, test tones are output at high volume. Ensure that the test
tones do not frighten small children. Also, refrain from using this function at night when it
may be a nuisance to others.
Connect the YPAO microphone to the
YPAO MIC jack on the front panel.
