QUICK-CONNECT GUIDE
YHT-500 Q U I C K -C O N N E C T GU I D E
I NTRODUCTION
Yamaha developed the YHT-500 A/V Home Theater
package to turn your home into a theater. In addition to
enhancing the sound of a video source, like your TV,
DVD, or VCR, the YHT-500 also superbly reproduces
audio sources, such as a CD player or a cassette deck.
For the video portion, you will need a television or monitor.
Refer to the Yamaha HTR-5540 Ownerís Manual , as well as
those that came with your other components, for complete instructions and cautions. Be sure to turn off all
power while making connections.
This Quick-Connect Guide will help you get started.
Study the speaker system plan (below), and then use
the interconnect diagrams (on the following pages) to
connect the receiver and speakers to your system.
Save this Quick-Connect Guide for future reference.
NOTE: Label the end of each speaker wire (i.e., left rear, right
front, etc.) before connecting them to the A/V receiver. For wire
runs over 30 feet, use larger 18- or 16-gauge speaker wire.
