Speaker Connection Precautions
The receiver allows you to connect two sets of speakers.
When two sets of speakers are connected, you can select
which speaker set outputs sound or use both sets to
output sound simultaneously. ( page 20 about
“Speakers A” and “Speakers B”)
• When you connect one set of speakers to either
SPEAKERS A or SPEAKERS B terminal posts, or
when you connect two sets of speakers to both speaker
terminal posts and output sound only from either
speaker set, use speakers whose impedance is 4 to
16 Ω, and set the speaker impedance setting on the
receiver to 4 or 6 Ω ( page 13). When the impedance
of the speaker to be used is less than 6 Ω, set the
speaker impedance to 4 Ω.
• When you connect speakers to both SPEAKERS A
and SPEAKERS B terminal posts and output sound
from both speaker sets simultaneously, use speakers
whose impedance is 8 to 16 Ω. Set the speaker
impedance setting on the receiver to 4 Ω.
• Read the instructions supplied with your speakers.
• Pay close attention to speaker wiring polarity. In other
words, connect positive (+) terminals only to positive (+)
terminals, and negative (–) terminals only to negative (–)
terminals. If you get them the wrong way around, the
sound will be out of phase and will sound unnatural.
• Unnecessarily long or very thin speaker cables may
affect the sound quality and should be avoided.
• Be careful not to short the positive and negative wires.
Doing so may damage the receiver.
Connecting the Speaker Cables
1
Strip about 5/8" (15 mm)
of insulation from the
ends of the speaker
cables, and twist the
bare wires tightly, as
shown.
2
Unscrew the terminal.
3
Fully insert the bare wire.
4
Screw the terminal tight.
5/8" (15 mm)
The following illustration shows which speaker should
be connected to each pair of terminals.

• Don’t connect more than one cable to each speaker
terminal. Doing so may damage the receiver.
• Don’t connect a speaker to more than one pair of
speaker terminals.
Note:
If you make an incorrect setting for the speakers or the
impedance values, the built-in protection circuit may be
activated resulting in no sound output from speakers.

Connecting the Receiver—Continued
Connecting a Powered Subwoofer
Using a suitable cable, connect the receiver’s
SUBWOOFER PRE OUT to the input on your powered
subwoofer. If your subwoofer is unpowered and you’re
using an external amplifier, connect the SUBWOOFER
PRE OUT to the amp’s input.
Note:
SUBWOOFER PRE OUT is linked to SPEAKER A’s
On/Off. When SPEAKER A is selected, the audio signal
will output from the SUBWOOFER PRE OUT.

• Press [RETURN] to return to the previous menu.
• This procedure will be cancelled if the [SETUP]
button is pressed before step 5.
Setting example:
If you’re using only one of the speaker sets connected to
SPEAKERS A or B, choose the 4 Ω setting if each
speaker’s impedance is 4 Ω to less than 6 Ω, or choose
the 6 Ω setting if each speaker’s impedance is 6 Ω or
more.
If you’re using both of the speaker sets connected to
SPEAKERS A and B, choose the 4 Ω setting if each
speaker’s impedance is 8 to 16 Ω.

■ What is RDS?
RDS stands for Radio Data System and is a method of
transmitting data embedded in FM radio signals. It was
developed by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU)
and is available in most European countries. Many FM
stations use it these days. In addition to displaying text
information, RDS can also help you find radio stations
by type (e.g., news, sport, rock, etc.).
The receiver supports three types of RDS information:
PS (Program Service)
When tuned to an RDS station that’s broadcasting PS
information, the station’s name will be displayed.
RT (Radio Text)
When tuned to an RDS station that’s broadcasting text
information, the text will be shown on the display
( page 29).
PTY (Program Type)
This allows you to search for RDS radio stations by type
( page 29).
Notes:
• In some cases, the text characters displayed on the
receiver may not be identical to those broadcast by the
radio station. Also, unexpected characters may be
displayed when unsupported characters are received.
This is not a malfunction.
• If the signal from an RDS station is weak, RDS data
may be displayed intermittently or not at all.
■ Switching the Display
When tuned to RDS stations, you can press the remote
controller’s [DISPLAY] button to switch the information
shown in the display.
The display will change as follows each time you press

away from the receiver, and that there’s no obstruction
between the remote controller and the receiver’s
remote control sensor ( page 6).
• Make sure that the receiver is not subjected to direct
sunshine or inverter-type florescent lights. Relocate if
necessary ( page 6).
Can’t control other components
• If it is an Onkyo component, make sure that the 
cable and analog audio cable are connected properly.
Connecting only an  cable won’t work ( page 17).
• With some components, certain buttons may not work
as expected, and some may not work at all.
• To control an Onkyo component that’s connected via
, point the remote controller at the receiver.
Troubleshooting—Continued
Recording
Can’t record
• On your recorder, make sure the correct input is
selected.
• To prevent signal loops and damage to the receiver,
input signals are not fed through to outputs with the
same name (e.g., TAPE IN to TAPE OUT).
Others
The functions don’t work
• To use , you must make an  connection and an
analog audio connection (RCA) between the
component and receiver, even if they are connected
digitally ( page 17).
The receiver contains a microcomputer for signal
processing and control functions. In very rare
situations, severe interference, noise from an external
source, or static electricity may cause it to lockup. In
the unlikely event that this happens, unplug the power
cord from the wall outlet, wait at least five seconds,
and then plug it back in again.
Onkyo is not responsible for damages (such as CD
rental fees) due to unsuccessful recordings caused by
the unit’s malfunction. Before you record important
data, make sure that the material will be recorded
correctly.
Before disconnecting the power cord from the wall
outlet, set the receiver to Standby.
