QUICK-CONNECT GUIDE

I NTRODUCTION
For the video portion, you will need a DVD player or
hi-fi stereo VCR and 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.
Yamaha developed the YHT-300 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-300 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.
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.
T OOLS A ND P ARTS

For optical connections, use an optical cable (available from your local audio
dealer) to connect the optical output on the DVD player to the optical input,
labeled DVD, on the the HTR-5540 receiver (see detail above).
For coaxial connections, use an RCA cable (available from your local audio
dealer) to connect the RCA coaxial output on the DVD player to the coaxial
input, labeled DIGITAL INPUT CD, on the HTR-5540 receiver (see detail above).
Then rename the digital input on the HTR-5540 to "DVD" (see the HTR-5540
Owner's Manual for the procedure).
