4 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.
SOURCE RECEIVER
Connect the YPAO microphone to the
YPAO MIC jack on the front panel.
