YHT-24 QUICK-CONNECT GUIDE
INTRODUCTION
Yamaha developed the YHT-24 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
or VCR, the YHT-24 also superbly reproduces audio
sources, such as a CD player or a cassette deck.
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.
For the video portion, you will need a television or
monitor. Please refer to the Yamaha HTR-5440 Owner's
Manual, as well as the owner's manuals that came with
your other components, for complete instructions and
cautions. Be sure to turn off all power while making
the connections.
Please keep this guide handy for future reference.
NOTE: Label the end ofeach speaker wire (i.e., left rear, right
front, etc.) before connecting them to the AN receiver. For wire
runs over ,~o feet, use larger 18- or 16-gauge speaker wire.
TOOLS AND PARTS
The YHT-24 Home Theater package consists of
(1) HTR-5440 A/V receiver with a universal remote
control, (1) DV-S5350 DVD player, (1) NS-AP280
package containing (5) 2-way NS-AP280 speakers,
100' of speaker wire, (1) SW-201 powered subwoofer,
and related owner's manuals. You will also need:
• Wire strippers (optional)
• Toggle bolts, molly anchor screws, sheet metal screws,
and/ or speaker brackets (for securing the N5-AP280
speakers to walls)
NOTE: If you are unsure of how to securely and safely fasten

OVERVIEW
The universal remote control will control up to seven
different types of components (including the HTR-5440
receiver), each of which becomes active when you press
