Precautions
1. Recording Copyright—Unless it’s for personal use
only, recording copyrighted material is illegal without the permission of the copyright holder.
2. AC Fuse—The AC fuse inside the TX-SR502/
TX-SR502E is not user-serviceable. If you cannot
turn on the TX-SR502/TX-SR502E, contact your
Onkyo dealer.
3. Care—Occasionally you should dust the
TX-SR502/TX-SR502E all over with a soft cloth.
For stubborn stains, use a soft cloth dampened with
a weak solution of mild detergent and water. Dry the
TX-SR502/TX-SR502E immediately afterwards
with a clean cloth. Don’t use abrasive cloths, thinners, alcohol, or other chemical solvents, because
they may damage the finish or remove the panel lettering.
4. Power
WARNING
BEFORE PLUGGING IN THE UNIT FOR THE
FIRST TIME, READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY.
AC outlet voltages vary from country to country.
Make sure that the voltage in your area meets the
voltage requirements printed on the TX-SR502/
TX-SR502E’s rear panel (e.g., AC 230 V, 50 Hz or
AC 120 V, 60 Hz).
The Worldwide model has a voltage selector for
compatibility with power systems around the world.
Before you plug in this model, make sure that the
voltage selector is set to the correct voltage for your
area.
For American model
Setting the [STANDBY/ON] switch to STANDBY
does not fully shutdown the TX-SR502. If you do
not intend to use the TX-SR502 for an extended
period, remove the power cord from the AC outlet.
Memory backup
The TX-SR502/TX-SR502E uses a battery-less memory backup system in order to retain radio presets and
other settings when it’s unplugged or in the case of a
power failure. Although no batteries are required, the
TX-SR502/TX-SR502E must be plugged into an AC
outlet in order to charge the backup system.
(On non-American models, the TX-SR502/
TX-SR502E’s POWER switch must be set to ON in
order to charge the backup system.) Once it has been
charged, the TX-SR502/TX-SR502E will retain the settings for several weeks, although this depends on the
environment and will be shorter in humid climates.
For British models
Replacement and mounting of an AC plug on the power
supply cord of this unit should be performed only by
qualified service personnel.
IMPORTANT
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance
with the following code:
Blue:
Neutral
Brown: Live
As 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.
IMPORTANT
A 5 ampere fuse is fitted in this plug. Should the fuse
need to be replaced, please ensure that the replacement
fuse has a rating of 5 amperes and that it is approved by
ASTA or BSI to BS1362. Check for the ASTA mark or
the BSI mark on the body of the fuse.
IF THE FITTED MOULDED PLUG IS UNSUITABLE
FOR THE SOCKET OUTLET IN YOUR HOME
THEN THE FUSE SHOULD BE REMOVED AND
THE PLUG CUT OFF AND DISPOSED OF SAFELY.
THERE IS A DANGER OF SEVERE ELECTRICAL
SHOCK IF THE CUT OFF PLUG IS INSERTED
INTO ANY 13 AMPERE SOCKET.
If in any doubt, consult a qualified electrician.

the remote controller may not work reliably.
• Don’t put anything, such as a book, on the remote controller, because the buttons may be pressed inadvertently, thereby draining the batteries.
• The remote controller may not work reliably if the
TX-SR502/TX-SR502E is installed in a rack behind
colored glass doors. Keep this in mind when installing.
• The remote controller will not work if there’s an obstacle between it and the TX-SR502/TX-SR502E’s
remote control sensor.

How to Use the Remote Controller
Including the TX-SR502/TX-SR502E, the remote controller can be used to control up to 10 different components, including Onkyo components connected via
.
The remote controller has a specific operating mode for
use with each type of component. Modes are selected by
using the nine REMOTE MODE buttons.
■ AMP/TUNER & TAPE Mode
AMP/TUNER Mode
AMP/TUNER mode is used to control the TX-SR502/
TX-SR502E. To select AMP/TUNER mode, press the
[AMP] mode button.

connected via
(the remote controller should be
pointed at the TX-SR502/TX-SR502E). By entering the
appropriate remote control code, the DVD mode can also
be used to control another manufacturer’s DVD player
and the [CD], [MD], and [CDR] mode buttons can also
be used with other manufacturer’s components (e.g.,
DVD, TV, VCR, satellite or cable receiver). (See

Connecting Your Speakers
Enjoying Home Theater
You can use two sets of speakers with the TX-SR502/TX-SR502E: speaker set A and speaker set B.
Speaker set A should be installed in your main listening room and can be used with Dolby Digital and DTS surround
material. Each speaker must be positioned at a specific location in your listening room to get the best from surround
sound material. The following illustration shows the best positions for your surround-sound speakers.
Speaker set B can be installed in another room and used with stereo and mono material. Speakers can be positioned in
the standard position for stereo speakers or however you like.
Front left and right speakers
These output the overall sound. Their role in a home theater is to provide a solid anchor
for the sound image. They should be positioned facing the listener at about ear level,
and equidistant from the TV. Angle them inward so as to create a triangle, with the
listener at the apex.
Center speaker
This speaker enhances the front left
and right speakers, making sound
movements distinct and providing a
full sound image. In movies it’s used
mainly for dialog.
Position it close to your TV (preferably
on top) facing forward at about ear
level, or at the same height as the
front left and right speakers.
Subwoofer
The subwoofer handles the bass sounds of
the LFE (Low-Frequency Effects) channel.
The volume and quality of the bass output
from your subwoofer will depend on its position, the shape of your listening room, and
your listening position. In
general, a good bass sound
can be obtained by installing the subwoofer in a front
corner, or at one-third the
width of the wall, as shown.
Surround back speaker
This speaker further enhances
the realism of surround sound
and improves sound localization behind the listener. Position it behind the listener about
2–3 feet (60–100 cm) above
ear level. Make sure that the
listening position is within the
range of the speaker.
Surround left and right speakers
These speakers are used for precise sound
positioning and to add realistic ambience.
Position them at the sides of the listener, or
slightly behind, about 2–3 feet (60–100 cm)
above ear level. Ideally they should be equidistant from the listener.
Corner
1/3 room
length
Speaker Configuration
For the best surround-sound experience, you should connect six speakers and a powered subwoofer.
No matter how many speakers you use, a powered subwoofer is recommended for a powerful and solid bass sound.
Before using the TX-SR502/TX-SR502E, you must specify which speakers are connected and their sizes (see page 32).
To get the very best from your surround-sound system, you should also specify the distance between the listener and
each individual speaker so that the sound from each speaker arrives at the listener’s ears at the same time (see page 48).
In addition, you should set the level of each individual speaker to achieve an equal balance (see page 49.)
16
Connecting Your Speakers—Continued
Attaching the Speaker Labels
Connecting Your Speakers
The AV Receiver’s positive (+) speaker terminals are
color-coded for ease of identification. (The negative (–)
speaker terminals are all black.)
Before you connect your speakers, read the following:
• Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet.
• Read the instructions supplied with your speakers.
• Pay close attention to speaker wiring polarity. In other
words, connect positive (+) terminals only to positive
(+) terminals, and negative (–) terminals only to negative (–) terminals. If you get them the wrong way
around, the sound will be out of phase and will sound
odd.
• Only use speakers with an impedance of between 6
and 16 ohms. If you use speakers with a lower impedance, and use the amplifier at high volume levels for a
long period of time, the built-in protection circuit may
be activated.
• Unnecessarily long or very thin speaker cables may
affect the sound quality and should be avoided.
• Be careful not to short the positive and negative connections.
Doing so may damage the AV
Receiver.
• Don’t connect more than one
cable to each speaker terminal.
Doing so may damage the AV
Receiver.
• If you want to connect a single speaker instead of a
pair, connect it to either the left or right speaker terminals, not both.

The supplied speaker labels are also color-coded and you
should attach them to the positive (+) side of each
speaker cable in accordance with the above table. All you
need to do then is to match the color of each label to the
corresponding speaker terminal.
Connecting the Speaker Cables
1
Strip 5/8" (15 mm) of
insulation from the
ends of the speaker
cables, and twist the
bare wires tightly, as
shown.
2
Unscrew the terminal. Fully insert the bare
wires. Screw the terminal tight.

Notes:
• Outdoor FM antennas work best outside, but usable
results can sometimes be obtained when installed in an
attic or loft.
• For best results, install the outdoor FM antenna well
away from tall buildings, preferably with a clear line
of sight to the transmitter.
• Outdoor antenna should be located away from possible noise sources, such as neon signs, busy roads, etc.
• For safety reasons, outdoor antenna should be situated
well away from power lines and other high-voltage
equipment.
• Outdoor antenna must be grounded in accordance
with local regulations to prevent electrical shock hazards.
■ Using the 75/300-ohm Antenna Adapter
The 75/300-ohm Antenna Adapter is not supplied with
American and European models.
The 75/300-ohm antenna adapter can be used to connect
an FM antenna using either 75-ohm coaxial cable or
300-ohm twin-core flat cable.
Insert the central conductor (1), as
shown, and use a small pair of pliers to
clamp the shielding and outer insulation
sections of the cable (2), as shown.

RCA AV Connection Color Coding
Before Making Any Connections
RCA-type AV connections are usually color coded: red,
white, and yellow. Use red plugs to connect right-channel audio inputs and outputs (typically labeled “R”). Use
white plugs to connect left-channel audio inputs and outputs (typically labeled “L”). And use yellow plugs to
connect composite video inputs and outputs.
• Read the manuals supplied with your AV components.
• Don’t connect the power cord until you’ve completed
and double-checked all audio and video connections.
Optical Digital Inputs
The TX-SR502/TX-SR502E’s optical digital inputs have
shutter-type covers that open when an optical plug is
inserted and close when it’s removed. Push plugs in all
the way.

■ Outputs (for recording)
The TX-SR502/TX-SR502E has two outputs for recording. The following table lists the type of component that
you can connect to each output.
Output
Video equipment can be connected to the TX-SR502/
TX-SR502E using one of the following video connection formats: composite video, S-Video, or component
video, the latter offering the best picture quality.
When choosing a connection format, bear in mind that
the TX-SR502/TX-SR502E doesn’t convert between
formats, so only outputs of the same format as the input
will output the signal.
For example, if you connect your DVD player to the
S-VIDEO DVD IN, a video signal will be output by the
S-VIDEO MONITOR OUT (for your TV) and the
S-VIDEO VIDEO 1 OUT (for your VCR), but not by
any composite video or component video outputs.

■ MONITOR OUT
Video signals received by the video inputs are output by
the MONITOR OUT sockets for display on the connected TV or projector.
The TX-SR502/TX-SR502E has three types of video
output: composite video, S-Video, and component
video. Connect the appropriate output to your TV or projector (see page 22).
Which Connections Should I Use?
The TX-SR502/TX-SR502E offers several interconnection formats for compatibility with a wide range of AV
equipment. The format you choose will depend on the
formats supported by your other components. Use the
following sections as a guide.
For video equipment you need to use two cables—one
for video, one for audio.

Audio Connection Formats
Audio equipment can be connected to the TX-SR502/
TX-SR502E using the following audio connection formats: analog, optical, coaxial, and multichannel.
When choosing a connection format, bear in mind that
the TX-SR502/TX-SR502E doesn’t convert between
formats.
For example, audio signals connected to an OPTICAL or
COAXIAL digital input are not output by the analog
TAPE OUT, so if you want to record from, for example,
your CD player, in addition to connecting it to a digital
input, you must also connect it to the analog CD IN.

Connecting Onkyo
Components
To use
, you must make an analog audio
connection (RCA) between the TX-SR502/
TX-SR502E and the other component, even if
they are connected digitally.
With
(Remote Interactive) you can control your
-compatible Onkyo CD player, DVD player, and so
on with the TX-SR502/TX-SR502E’s remote controller,
and use the following special
functions:
Auto Power On/Standby
When you start playback on a component connected via
, if the TX-SR502/TX-SR502E is in Standby, it will
turn on and select that component as the input source
automatically. Similarly, when the TX-SR502/
TX-SR502E is set to Standby, all components connected
via
also enter Standby. This function will not work
if the component’s power cord is connected to the
TX-SR502/TX-SR502E’s AC OUTLET.
Direct Change
When playback is started on a component connected via
, the TX-SR502/TX-SR502E automatically selects
that component as the input source. If your DVD player
is connected to the TX-SR502/TX-SR502E’s multichannel input, you must press the [MULTI CH] button to
enjoy all channels (see page 34). This is because the
Direct Change
function only selects the FRONT
DVD IN sockets.

The selected input source is output by the front left and
right speakers only, with minimal processing for a pure
sound.
This mode creates 6.1-channel surround from 2-channel
analog sources. It offers six full-bandwidth channels
with excellent separation. There are two modes of operation: Cinema mode, which is suited to movies, and
Music mode, which is for listening to music.
• Cinema mode simulates the realistic sense of movement that you get with 6.1-channel surround sound
sources. Use this mode with videos, DVDs, and TV
programs that feature stereo sound.
• Music mode uses the surround channels to simulate a
natural sound field that cannot be produced with conventional stereo. Use this mode with stereo source
material such as music CDs.

With an added surround-back channel,
this 6.1 channel format offers a heightened
sense of space, for added realism with
moving sounds, such as those that rotate 360 degrees or
pass overhead. Dolby Digital EX material can also be
played on conventional 5.1 channel systems, in which
case the surround-back channel audio is divided between
the surround left and right channels. Use this mode with

DTS-ES
DTS-ES supports up to 6.1 channels. The TX-SR502/
TX-SR502E supports both DTS-ES Discrete and
DTS-ES Matrix.
Discrete mode is for use with DTS 6.1
material. With an additional surround-back
channel, each 6.1 channel is digitally recorded for a realistic sense of movement and space. Use it with CDs,
DVDs, and LDs that bear the DTS-ES logo.
Matrix mode creates 6.1-channel surround
from DTS 5.1 material. Since DTS 5.1
includes surround-back channel information, the channel can be reconstructed for
playback on 6.1-channel systems. Use this
mode with CDs, DVDs, and LDs that bear the DTS-ES
or DTS logo.
DTS+Neo:6
This mode uses the Neo:6 decoder to create 6.1-channel

Recording
This chapter explains how to record the selected input
source to an AV component with recording capability,
and how to record audio and video from two different
sources.
Recording the Input Source
You can record only to AV components that are connected to the TAPE OUT or VIDEO 1 OUT sockets.
See pages 22–30 for information on connecting your AV
components to the TX-SR502/TX-SR502E.
1
DVD
VIDEO 1
VIDEO 2
VIDEO 3
VCR
TAPE
CD
Use the input selector buttons to
select the AV component that
you want to record.
Audio signals from the selected input
source are output by the VIDEO 1 OUT
and TAPE OUT sockets.
You can listen to the source while
recording. The TX-SR502/
TX-SR502E’s VOLUME control has
no effect on recording.
Recording from Different AV Sources
With this function you can record audio and video from
different sources, allowing you to overdub audio onto
your video recordings. This function takes advantage of
the fact that when an audio-only input source (i.e.,
TAPE, TUNER, or CD) is selected, the video input
source remains unchanged. For example, if you first
select the VIDEO 3 input source, followed by the CD
input source, you can watch the video from the VIDEO 3
input and listen to the audio from the CD input.
In the following example, audio from the CD player connected to the CD IN sockets, and video from the camcorder connected to the VIDEO 3 INPUT VIDEO socket
are recorded by the VCR, which is connected to the
VIDEO 1 OUT sockets.

■ Late Night (Dolby Digital only)
With this function you can reduce the dynamic range of
Dolby Digital material so that you can still hear quiet
parts even when listening at low volume levels—ideal
for watching movies late at night when you don’t want to
disturb anyone.
Off: Late Night function off.
Low: Small reduction in dynamic range.
High: Big reduction in dynamic range.
Note that the effect of the Late Night function depends
on the Dolby Digital material that you are playing, and
with some material there will be little or no effect.
This function is turned off when the TX-SR502/
TX-SR502E is set to Standby.
Tip: You can also set this function by using the remote
controller’s [L NIGHT] button.
You can set the CinemaFILTER function to On or Off.
The CinemaFILTER function can be used with the following listening modes: Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital

■ Double Bass
The Double Bass function boosts the bass by feeding
bass sounds from the front left and right channels to the
subwoofer. To use this function, in the Speaker Configuration, the Subwoofer setting must be set to Yes and the
Front setting must be set to Large (see page 32).
The Double Bass function works well with mono and 2channel sources, including 96 kHz PCM.

■ Center Image
DTS Neo:6 derives a center-channel signal from stereo
material, either analog or digital. In Music mode, the
center speaker is intended to augment the left and right
speakers, allowing them to faithfully reproduce the original stereo mix. For this reason, the center channel sound
is not fully subtracted from the left and right channels.
With this function, you can adjust the amount of subtraction depending on your room layout and personal preference.
TX-SR502_En.book Page 47 Tuesday, February 17, 2004 12:14 PM
Advanced Function—Continued
0 to 5: Adjustable range.
When set to 5, nothing is subtracted from the left and
right channels. When set to 0, the left and right channel levels are halved (–6 dB), making the center
channel more dominant, particularly useful when the
listener is off-center.
Digital Input Signal Formats
The following table shows the display indicators for each
supported digital signal format.
Format
Display
Dolby Digital
This function has no effect on the level of the center
speaker.
DTS
PCM
Adjusting the PL II or PL IIx Music Mode
The following Panorama, Dimension, and Center Width
parameters can only be adjusted while the PL II Music or
PL IIx Music listening mode is selected.
These parameters cannot be adjusted if you’re using the
Pro Logic IIx listening mode for 6.1-channel playback
from a 5.1-channel source.
Normally, the TX-SR502/TX-SR502E detects the signal
format automatically. However, if you experience either
of the following issues when playing PCM or DTS material, you can set the signal format to PCM or DTS:
• If the beginnings of tracks from a PCM source are cut
off, try setting the format to PCM.
• If noise is produced when fast forwarding or reversing
a DTS CD or LD, try setting the format to DTS.
■ Panorama
With this function, you can extend the front stereo image
to the surround speakers to provide a “wraparound”
effect, especially useful when not much sound is being
output by the surround speakers.
■ Dimension
With this function, you can move the soundfield backward or forward.
0 to 6: Adjustable range.
When set to 3, the soundfield is in the normal position. Choose a lower setting to move the soundfield
forward Choose a higher setting to move it backward.
If the stereo image is too wide, or there’s too much surround information, try moving the soundfield forward to
achieve a better balance. If the stereo image is too narrow, or it sounds almost like it’s in mono, try moving the
soundfield backward.
■ Center Width
With Pro Logic II/Pro Logic IIx decoding, the centerchannel signal is normally output by the center speaker.
If a center speaker is not used, the decoder divides the
center signal equally between the front left and right
speakers, producing what’s known as a “phantom” center. With this function you can choose to have the centerchannel signal output by the center speaker only, by the
front left and right speakers only (“phantom” center), or
by a mix of the two.
0 to 7: Adjustable range.
When set to 0, the center-channel signal is output by
the center speaker only. When set to 7, it’s output by
the front left and right speakers only (“phantom”
center).

Controlling Other Components
You can use the TX-SR502/TX-SR502E’s remote controller (RC-567M/RC-569M) to control your other AV
components, including those made by other manufacturers. To do this you first need to enter the appropriate
remote control code for your DVD player, TV, VCR,
cable receiver, or satellite receiver. Then you need to
select the corresponding remote controller mode (see
page 10).
By entering the appropriate remote control code, the
[CD], [MD], and [CDR] mode buttons can also be used
with other manufacturer’s components (e.g., DVD, TV,
VCR, satellite or cable receiver).
4
Select the remote controller mode, point
the remote controller at the component,
and check its operation.
Remote controller buttons that can be used in
DVD mode are shown on page 12. Those that can
be used with the TV, VCR, CABLE, and SAT
modes are shown on page 55.
If the remote controller works as expected, the code has
been entered correctly. If not, try again or try another
code.

Troubleshooting—Continued
Symptom
Possible cause
Reception is noisy, intermittent, and the FM STEREO indicator flashes?
You’re too far away from the transmitter. Or,
your FM antenna is in the wrong position or
pointing in the wrong direction. Or, the station’s signal strength is poor.
Reception is hindered by a
crackling noise?
Interference is being caused by fluorescent
lights being turned on or off or by passing
cars.
AM reception is hindered
by a buzzing noise, especially at night or with weak
signals?
Interference caused by electrical equipment,
including fluorescent lights.
AM reception is hindered
by a high-pitched noise?
Interference caused by your TV.
The tuner presets no
longer work?
The power cord has not been connected to a
wall outlet, or the power has been turned off
for an extended period.
Recording
From the VIDEO 1 OUT, you’re trying to
record the signal being fed into the VIDEO
1 IN, or from the TAPE OUT, you’re trying
to record the signal being fed into the TAPE
IN.
Sound can be heard from
the speakers, but it cannot
be recorded?
Can’t record the surroundsound effects produced by
the listening modes?
The Late Night function
doesn’t work?
You’re playing Dolby Digital or DTS source
material.
You cannot record from an AV component
that is connected digitally.
The wrong input source is selected on your
recorder.
This is normal. The surround-sound effects
produced by the listening modes cannot be
recorded.
The Late Night function only works with
Dolby Digital.
The multichannel input is not selected.
Others
The multichannel DVD
input doesn’t work?
58
The AV component is not properly connected.
The listening mode
changes to Stereo when
headphones are
connected?
This is normal. When you connect a pair of
headphones, the Stereo listening mode is
selected automatically.
There’s nothing shown on
the display.
The Pure Audio listening mode is selected.
Remedy
Use the [TUNING MODE] button to select
Manual Tuning mode, and tune the station in
mono (page 36).
Adjust the position, height, and direction of
your FM antenna.
Install an outdoor FM antenna, preferably
one with many elements. Installing an outdoor antenna is a specialist job, so contact
your nearest dealer for advice (page 19).
Install an outdoor antenna as far away as
possible from nearby roads.
Adjust the position or direction of your outdoor antenna.
Move your antenna as far away as possible
from fluorescent lights.
Relocate your AM antenna.
Install an outdoor AM antenna (page 19).
Move the AM loop antenna as far away as
possible from your TV.
Move the TX-SR502/TX-SR502E as far
away as possible from your TV.
Preset your favorite radio stations again
(page 37). The power cord must be plugged
into a wall outlet a few times each month in
order to preserve the presets.
To prevent signal loops and damage to the
TX-SR502/TX-SR502E, input signals are
not fed through to outputs with the same
name (e.g., TAPE IN/OUT or VIDEO 1 IN/
OUT).
Although you cannot record Dolby Digital
or DTS surround channels, you can record
the left and right channels by connecting the
source AV component’s analog left and right
outputs to a pair of analog inputs on the
TX-SR502/TX-SR502E.
Select the correct input source. See your
recorder’s manual for more information.
“ DIGITAL” appears on the display when
using a Dolby Digital source.
Press the [MULTI CH] button to select the
multichannel input (page 35).
Connect the AV component’s 5.1-channel
outputs to the TX-SR502/TX-SR502E’s
DVD IN FRONT, SURR, CENTER, and
SUBWOOFER sockets (page 24).
When this mode is selected, the display and
the internal video circuits are all turned off
and no video signals are output.

• The AV Receiver contains a microcomputer for signal processing and control functions. In very rare situations,
severe interference, noise from an external source, or static electricity may cause it to lockup. In the unlikely even
that this should happen, unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, wait at least five seconds, and then plug it back
in again. That should fix it.
• To reset the AV Receiver to its factory defaults, turn it on and, while holding down the [VIDEO 1] button, press the
[STANDBY/ON] button. “Clear” will appear on the display and the AV Receiver will enter Standby mode.
