Explanation of Graphical Symbols
The lightning flash with arrowhead
symbol, within an equilateral triangle, is
intended to alert you to the presence of
uninsulated “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.
IMPORTANT

• 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.

• 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.
• 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.

Cautions
• Do not place the sound bar on/under any other devices such as BD player
in a pile. Doing so may cause a malfunction due to vibrations.
Cautions
• Do not touch the grille on the front and bottom of the sound bar.
• Place the sound bar away from your TV more than 50 mm (2”) so as not to
damage your TV with rear panel of the sound bar.
• Depending on your installation environment, it may be better to connect
the sound bar and external devices (such as a TV) before installing the
sound bar.
Cautions
• When installing the sound bar on a wall, all installation work must
be performed by a qualified contractor or dealer. The customer must
never attempt to perform this installation work. Improper or inadequate
installation could cause the sound bar to fall, resulting in personal injury.
• Do not attach the sound bar to a wall that is made of weak materials such
as plaster or veneered woods. Doing so may cause the sound bar to fall.
• Make sure you use commercially available screws that can support the
weight of the installation (specified in Step 2). Using clamps other than
specified screws, such as short screws, nails, and two-sided tape, may
cause the sound bar to fall.
6
• Fix the cables in place where they will not become loose. If your foot or
hand accidentally gets caught on a loose cable, the sound bar may fall.
• Check that the sound bar is fixed securely after the installation. Yamaha
will bear no responsibility for any accidents caused by improper
installations.
Connections
NOTE
• Remove the power cables of the sound bar and subwoofer from AC wall outlets before making connections.
• Do not use excessive force when inserting the cable plug. Doing so may damage the cable plug or terminal.

To establish a wireless connection (yAired) between Yamaha products, you need to set both the
products to the same group.
You can change the group ID of the sound bar and subwoofer by the group ID switches on the
subwoofer. If you change the group ID on the subwoofer, it will be reflected to the sound bar when the
sound bar is turned on the next time.

When the TV Remote Repeater function is enabled, the sound bar receives TV remote control signals
at the TV remote control sensor (on front) and transmits the signals from the TV Remote Repeater (on
rear). This function is useful when you cannot operate your TV from the remote control because the
remote control sensor of the TV is blocked by the sound bar.
NOTE
• If a wireless connection between the sound bar and
subwoofer cannot be established, see “No sound is coming
from the subwoofer.” in “Troubleshooting” (p.12).
• To establish a wireless connection (yAired) to another
Yamaha product (such as a transmitter), set the sound bar
(subwoofer) and your Yamaha product to the same group.
• When using another Yamaha product (such as a
transmitter), terminate a wireless connection between your
Yamada product and the sound bar (subwoofer) before
changing the group ID. Reestablish a wireless connection
between them after confirming that the sound bar and
subwoofer are properly connected with a new group ID.
NOTE
• This function is available only when your TV remote control uses infrared signals.
