Positioning speakers/Connecting speakers
Two speaker systems can be connected to the Receiver.
The speaker system A is to be placed in the main room, and the speaker system B is to be placed in a second room.
The speaker system A consists of the FRONT SPEAKERS A (L/R), CENTER SPEAKER, SURROUND SPEAKERS (L/R) and
SUBWOOFER.
You can reproduce the sounds such as Dolby surround and DTS surround.
The speaker system B consists of the FRONT SPEAKERS B.
You can reproduce only monaural and stereo sounds.
Standard speaker placement of the speaker system A
Speaker placement plays an important role in the reproduction of
Surround sound.
The placement of the speakers varies depending on the size of the room
and the wall coverings used in the room. The illustration below shows an
example of a layout for standard speaker placement. Refer to this example
when you position the speakers in order to experience the best of
Surround sound.
For ideal Surround effects, all speakers should be installed.
If a center speaker or subwoofer is not connected, the sound from the
unused channel is properly distributed to the connected speakers in order
to reproduce the best Surround sound possible.
Front
left speaker
Front
right speaker
TV/Screen
Subwoofer
Center
speaker
Front
The center speaker reproduces a richer sound image by enhancing the
perception of the sound’s source and movement.
The left, right, and center speakers should face the seated listener and be
placed at ear level.
Surround
The surround speakers reproduce the feel of a moving sound while
creating the sensation of being in the middle of the action.
Place the left and right surround speakers 3 feet (1 meter) above the
listener’s ear level and facing toward the sides of the room, making sure
that the listener is within the speakers’ dispersion angle.

Subwoofer
When bass sound is reproduced, its volume and quality greatly depend on
subwoofer placement. Those characteristics also depends on the shape of
your listening room as well as your listening point. Generally speaking,
good bass sound is obtained when the subwoofer is placed in the corner of
the room or at one-third the length of the room.
Refer to the speakers’ instruction manuals for details.

Before connecting
• Refer also to the instruction manuals of the speakers.
• Be sure to connect the positive and negative cables for the
speakers properly. If they are mixed up, the left and right
signals will be reversed and the audio will sound unnatural.
• Only connect speakers with an impedance between 8 Ω and
16 Ω. If you use speakers with a lower impedance, and use
amplifier at high volume levels for a long period of time, the
built-in protection circuit may be activated.
• To prevent damage to circuits, never short-circuit the positive
(+) and negative (–) speaker wires.
NO!
How to connect to the speaker terminals

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 for
tall buildings, preferably with a clear line of sight to your local
FM 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 can be used to connect an FM
antenna using either 75-ohm coaxial cable or 300-ohm twin-core
flat cable.
It’s best not to use the same antenna for both FM and TV reception,
as this can cause interference problems. If circumstances demand
it, use a TV/FM antenna splitter, as shown.
Connecting 300-ohm Flat Cable
1. Using a screwdriver, loosen the two
screws on the adapter, wrap the bare
wires around the screws, and then

Using analog multi channel input
The multi channel input refers to a system, which is compatible
with a source component equipped with analog 5.1-channel outputs
(DVD player, MPEG decoder, etc.), reproducing the left/right
front, center and left/right surround channels from five respective
speakers and outputting the subwoofer channel from SUB
WOOFER (refer to page 13).
1. Press DVD.
Notes
• “Multich” can be selected only when DVD is selected as the
input source.
• The surround mode cannot be selected when “Multich” is
selected. Also, if “Multich” is selected during use of a surround
mode, it is canceled automatically.
• Regardless of the speaker configuration, the input signal will be
output to each corresponding speaker. For example, even if the
speaker configuration is set to 2 ch, sound comes from all
speakers.
2. Press AUDIO SELECTOR on the unit or AUDIO
SEL on the remote controller repeatedly to
select “Multich”.
3. Turn on the component connected to the DVD
(FRONT L/R, SURR L/R, CENTER and
SUBWOOFER) port and start playing the
desired media.
Check that the DVD player is set for multi channel output. See
instruction manual supplied with your DVD player for details.
4. If necessary, press CH SEL on the remote
controller to select an individual speaker. Then
press LEVEL / to adjust the output level as
desired.
Adjust the speaker output level so that you can hear the same
sound level from each speaker at the listening position. For the
front right, front left, center, surround right and surround left
speakers, the output levels can be adjusted between –12 to
+12 dB in 1 dB steps. The subwoofer can be adjusted between –
30 to +12 dB.
The volume levels from the speakers reproducing multi
channel input source are independent from the speaker levels
set using the test tone (page 20). These settings are not applied
to speakers reproducing multi channel input source.

Enjoying the listening modes
The surround sound of the AV Receiver enables you to enjoy the
presence of a movie theater or concert hall in your room.
Before using any surround mode, make sure the Speaker Setup
configurations have been set (see page 18).
The speaker configuration is very important for the surround
sound. See “Positioning speakers/Connecting speakers” on pages
12 – 13. For operational instructions, refer to the page 29.
Following are the sound systems the AV Receiver can reproduce.
Dolby Digital surround, DTS (Digital Theater
System) surround
This 5.1-channel digital surround format enables you to
individually record and play five full-range (20 Hz-20 kHz)
channels (left and right front, center, two surround channels) plus
an LFE channel (Low Frequency Effect) for the low-range effect
sound. It will create a realistic sound that could be heard in the
theaters and concert halls.
Dolby Digital
Select this option when you play a DVD video that has a
mark.
DTS
Select this option when you play a DVD player, LD, or CD that has
a
mark.
• If you press the pause or skip button on the player while playing
a DTS source, a short noise may be heard. This is not a
malfunction.
• The DTS indicator on the TX-SR302 lights up while it plays the
DTS source. When playback concludes and the DTS signal
transmission stops, the TX-SR302 remains in DTS mode and
the DTS indicator remains lit. This prevents noise when you
operate the pause or skip button on the player. Therefore, if the
source switches from the DTS signal to the PCM signal
immediately, the PCM signal may not be played. In this case,
stop the playback of the source on the player for about 3
seconds, then resume playback.
• Some CD players and LD players may be unable to play DTS
sources correctly even if you connect the player to the
TX-SR302 digitally. This is because the digital signal has been
processed (such as the output level, sampling frequency,
frequency response, etc.), and the TX-SR302 cannot recognize
the signal as DTS data. Therefore, you may hear noise when
you play a DTS source while processing the signal.
• The TAPE OUT or VIDEO 1 OUT jacks of the TX-SR302
output analog audio. Do not record CDs or LDs that support
DTS using these jacks. Otherwise, you will record a DTS
encoded signal as noise.
Dolby Pro Logic II (Movie/Music)
This mode is a new generation 5-channel surround system that
provides performance between the 4-channel (left front, right front,
center, and monaural surround) Pro Logic Surround and the 5.1channel Dolby Digital Surround. This mode can be set to the Movie
mode designed for playing movies and the Music mode designed
for listening to music.
In the Movie mode, the surround channels, which used to provide
monaural output over only a narrow frequency range, now provide
complete stereo output over the full frequency range. The result is
viewing worth a realistic feel of movement.
28
The Music mode uses the surround channels to provide a natural
sound space that cannot be provided with normal stereo output.
This mode can be used with VHS and DVD videos with the
mark and certain television programs. The Music
mode can be used with music compact discs and other stereo sources.
If no surround speakers are connected, then the surround sound is
divided and output from the front left and right channels.
Onkyo’s original Digital Signal Processing
(DSP) modes
Analog sources include audio records, AM/FM broadcasting and
cassette tapes. The PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) signal is a kind
of digital audio signal, which is recorded directly on CD or DVD
without being compressed. When an analog or PCM source is
played, you can enjoy unique surround modes to Onkyo as listed
below.
Orchestra
This mode is suitable for classical and opera music. The center
channel is cut and the surround channels are emphasized to widen
the stereo image. It simulates a natural reverberation as created in a
large hall.
Unplugged
This mode is suitable for acoustic instrumental sounds, vocals, and
jazz music. By emphasizing the front stereo image, it simulates the
acoustics in front of the stage.
Studio-Mix
This mode is suitable for rock and popular music. Lively sounds
with a powerful acoustic image will make you feel as if you are in a
club.
TV Logic
This mode offers the realistic acoustics of a TV program being
aired in the TV studio. It enhances the entire surround sound and
clarity of conversation.
All Ch St (All Channel Stereo)
This mode is useful for background music. The front and surround
channels will create a stereo image.
Stereo mode, Direct mode
Stereo
This mode has all input sound is output from the left and right front
speakers. Subwoofer also can be used for playback.
Direct
This mode delivers pure sound with minimum sound quality
adjustment and filtration. The sound recorded for the left and right
front channel is output to the left and right front speakers only and
not output to the subwoofer.

The Audio Adjust functions are explained below.
Bass
With this function you can boost or cut low-frequency sounds
output by the front speakers from –12 dB to +12 dB in 2 dB steps.
Treble
With this function you can boost or cut high-frequency sounds
output by the front speakers from –12 dB to +12 dB in 2 dB steps.
Late Night (Only for Dolby Digital source)
With this function you can reduce the dynamic range of Dolby
Digital source 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.
Late Night = Off ........... no effect
Late Night = Low ......... small reduction in dynamic range
Late Night = High ......... big reduction in dynamic range
Note that the impact of the Late Night function depends on the
Dolby Digital source that you are playing, and with some source
there will be little or no effect.
This function is automatically cancelled when you set the TX-SR302
to Standby.
Cinema Filter
When this function is on, you can soften the harshness, or
brightness sometimes experienced with movie soundtracks, which
are typically mixed for reproduction in a movie theater.
Panorama (Pro Logic II Music)
When this function is on, 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 (Pro Logic II Music)
When this function is on, you can move the soundfield backward or
forward.
With a setting of 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 (Pro Logic II Music)
In Pro Logic II decoding, the center-channel signal is 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 center-channel signal output by only the
center speaker, by only the front left and right speakers (“phantom”
center), or by a mix of the two.
With a setting of 0, the center-channel signal is output only by the
center speaker.
With a setting of 7, it’s output only by the front left and right speakers
(“phantom” center).
In home theaters, adding some width to the center channel can
improve the balance between the center and front left and right
speakers. Most stereo source will benefit from appropriate use of
this function. The recommended setting for Pro Logic II Music
mode is 3. For Pro Logic II Movie mode, the setting is
automatically set to 0.

system. The memory preservation period after the unit has been
turned off varies depending on climate and placement of the
unit. On average, memory contents are protected over a period
of a few weeks after the time the unit has been turned off. This
period is shorter when the unit is exposed to a very humid
climate.
When incorrect operation is observed
• The TX-SR302 contains an internal microcomputer that performs high-level operations. However, on extremely rare occasions,
noise or interference from an external source or static electricity may cause faulty operation. If this occurs, unplug the power cord
from the wall outlet, wait five or more seconds, and then plug it back in. This should correct the situation.
• To reset the surround mode and other settings to the factory default settings, hold down the VIDEO 1 button with the
TX-SR302 turned on and then press the STANDBY/ON button. “Clear” appears in the front display and the TX-SR302 enters the
standby state.
