“dangerous voltage” within the product’s
enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude
to constitute a risk of electric shock to
persons.
The exclamation point within an equilateral
triangle is intended to alert you to the
presence of important operating and
maintenance (servicing) instructions in the
literature accompanying the appliance.

Read these instructions.
Keep these instructions.
Heed all warnings.
Follow all instructions.
Do not use this apparatus near water.
Clean only with dry cloth.
Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in accordance with
the manufacturer’s instructions.
Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat
registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that
produce heat.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or
grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two blades with one
wider than the other. A grounding type plug has two blades and a
third grounding prong. The wide blade or the third prong are
provided for your safety. If the provided plug does not fit into

exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or has
been dropped.
We Want You Listening For A Lifetime
Yamaha and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group want you to get the most out of your
equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that lets the sound come through loud and clear without annoying
blaring or distortion – and, most importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.
Since hearing damage from loud sounds is often undetectable until it is too late, Yamaha and the Electronic Industries
Association’s Consumer Electronics Group recommend you to avoid prolonged exposure from excessive volume levels.

To assure the finest performance, please read this manual
carefully. Keep it in a safe place for future reference.
Install this unit in a cool, dry, clean place - away from windows,
heat sources, sources of excessive vibration, dust, moisture and
cold. Avoid sources of humming (transformers, motors). To
prevent fire or electrical shock, do not expose this unit to rain or
water.
The voltage to be used must be the same as that specified on the
rear panel. Using this unit with a higher voltage than specified is
dangerous and may cause a fire and/or electric shock.
Do not use force on switches, controls or connection wires. When
moving the unit, first disconnect the power plug and the wires
connected to other equipment. Never pull the wires themselves.
When not planning to use this unit for a long period (ie., vacation,
etc.), disconnect the AC power plug from the wall outlet.
To prevent lightning damage, disconnect the AC power plug when
there is an electric storm.
Since this unit has a built-in power amplifier, heat will radiate
from the rear panel. Place the unit apart from the walls, allowing
at least 20 cm of space above, behind and on both sides of the unit
to prevent fire or damage.
Furthermore, do not position with the rear panel facing down on
the floor or other surfaces.
Do not cover the rear panel of this unit with a newspaper, a
tablecloth, a curtain, etc., in order not to obstruct heat radiation. If
the temperature inside the unit rises, it may cause fire, damage to
the unit and/or personal injury.
Do not place the following objects on this unit:
– Glass, china, small metallic, etc.
If glass, etc., falls as a result of vibrations and breaks, it may
cause bodily injury.
– A burning candle etc.
If the candle falls as a result of vibration, it may cause fire
and bodily injury.
– A vessel containing water
If the vessel falls as a result of vibration and water spills, it
may cause damage to the speaker, and/or you may get an
electric shock.
Do not place this unit where foreign material, such as dripping
water. It might cause fire, damage to this unit, and/or personal
injury.
Never put a hand or a foreign object into the YST port located on
the right side of this unit. When moving this unit, do not hold the
port, as it might cause personal injury and/or damage to this unit.
Never place a fragile object near the YST port of this unit. If the
object falls or drops as a result of the air pressure, it may cause
damage to the unit and/or personal injury.
Never open the cabinet. It might cause an electric shock, since this
unit uses a high voltage. It might also cause personal injury and/or
damage to this unit. If something drops into the set, contact your
dealer.
When using a humidifier, be sure to avoid condensation inside this
unit by allowing enough space around this unit or avoiding excess
humidification. Condensation might cause fire, damage to this
unit, and/or electric shock.
Super-bass frequencies reproduced by this unit may cause a
turntable to generate a howling sound. In such a case, move this
unit away from the turntable.
This unit may be damaged if certain sounds are continuously
output at high volume level. For example, if 20 Hz-50 Hz sine
waves from a test disc, bass sounds from electronic instruments,
etc., are continuously output, or when the stylus of a turntable
touches the surface of a disc, reduce the volume level to prevent
this unit from being damaged.
Caution-iii En
•
•
•
•
•
If you hear distortion (i.e., unnatural, intermittent “rapping” or
“hammering” sounds) coming from this unit, reduce the volume
level. Extremely loud playing of a movie soundtrack’s low
frequency, bass-heavy sounds or similarly loud popular music
passages can damage this speaker system.
Vibration generated by super-bass frequencies may distort images
on a TV. In such a case, move this unit away from the TV set.
Do not attempt to clean this unit with chemical solvents as this
might damage the finish. Use a clean, dry cloth.
Be sure to read the “Troubleshooting” section regarding common
operating errors before concluding that the unit is faulty.
Install this unit near the wall outlet and where the AC power plug
can be reached easily.
Radio waves may affect electro-medical devices.
Do not use this unit near medical devices or inside medical
facilities.

pacemaker implant or defibrillator implant.
WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO
NOT EXPOSE THIS UNIT TO RAIN OR MOISTURE.
Power is continuously supplied to this unit as long as its power
cable is plugged in. When this unit is turned off using an external
audio device, it enters standby mode, a state in which it consumes
very little power.

Features of the Wireless Subwoofer NS-WSW160
The NS-WSW160 is a wireless subwoofer that supports
Yamaha’s proprietary yAired technology. It receives wireless
signals from a yAired-enabled Yamaha device to output audio
content from that device. Check our website for devices
compatible with this unit.
The “
” and “yAired” are trademarks of Yamaha
Corporation.
Installing the subwoofer
Notes
• The subwoofer requires sufficient space for heat discharge. When installing the subwoofer, be sure to leave a minimum space of 20 cm (7-7/8 in)
of open space above and behind and to the sides of the subwoofer. Do not cover the subwoofer heat discharge unit on the back of the subwoofer.
• Be sure to install the subwoofer where it does not fall subject to vibrations, such as from an earthquake, and where it is out of the reach of
children.
• When using a cathode-ray tube (CRT) TV, do not install this unit directly above your TV.
• If the picture on your TV screen becomes blurred or distorted, we recommend moving this unit away from your TV.
• To prevent sound reflecting off of walls, angle the subwoofer
slightly toward the center of the room.
• If the subwoofer is placed directly facing a wall and your
listening position is in the center of the room, you may not be
able to obtain enough bass sound from the subwoofer. This is
because “standing waves” are forming between the two
parallel walls and cancelling out the bass sounds.
• When installing the subwoofer on a rack, be sure the rack is
strong enough to support the subwoofer and that it leaves
sufficient space for heat discharge.
• Subwoofer performance may be affected if the subwoofer is
placed on a metal rack, or if there is a metal plate between the
subwoofer and the device to which the subwoofer is connected
wirelessly.
• The subwoofer can also be placed on its side (☞p. 2).
