LISTENING
the Electronic Industries Association's
For A Lifetime
Consumer Electronics Group recommend
you avoid prolonged exposure to excessive
volume levels.
CAUTION: READ THIS BEFORE
OPERATING YOUR UNIT
1 To ensure the finest performance, please read this
manual carefully. Keep it in a safe place for future
reference.
2 Install your unit in a cool, dry, clean place – away from
windows, heat sources, and too much vibration, dust,
moisture or cold. Avoid sources of hum (transformers,
motors). To prevent fire or electrical shock, do not
expose to rain and water.
3 Do not operate the unit upside-down.
4 Never open the cabinet. If a foreign object drops into
the set, contact your dealer.
5 Place the unit in a location with adequate air circulation.
Do not interfere with its proper ventilation; this will cause
the internal temperature to rise and may result in a
failure.
6 Do not use force on switches, knobs or cords. When
moving the set, first turn the unit off. Then gently
disconnect the power plug and the cords connecting to
other equipment. Never pull the cord itself.
7 Do not attempt to clean the unit with chemical solvents:
this might damage the finish. Use a clean, dry cloth.
8 Be sure to read the “Troubleshooting” section on
common operating errors before concluding that your
unit is faulty.
9 This unit consumes a fair amount of power even when
the power switch is turned off. We recommend that you
unplug the power cord from the wall outlet if the unit is
not going to be used for a long time. This will save
electricity and help prevent fire hazards. To disconnect
the cord, pull it out by grasping the plug. Never pull the
cord itself.
10 To prevent lightning damage, pull out the power cord
and remove the antenna cable during an electrical
storm.
11 The general digital signals may interfere with other
equipment such as tuners or receivers. Move the
system farther away from such equipment if interference
is observed.

Choosing vocal effects by music type
Recording karaoke
Press one of the following KARAOKE Digital Super
Surround (DSS) buttons to select an effect appropriate for
the type of music you are singing.
Karaoke can be recorded with a cassette deck and/or VCR
connected to this unit. Before recording, select the source to
be played with the INPUT selectors. When recording with
the cassette deck, select a source other than TAPE, and
select a source other than VCR for VCR recording.
BALLAD
POPS
JAZZ
ROCK
BALLAD: Suitable for mellow songs with slow-tempos;
gives your voice and added sense of expression.
POPS: Suitable for pop music; provides a feeling of
lightness.
JAZZ: Provides the reflections of a small hall, and creates
an atmosphere similar to a jazz club.
ROCK: Suitable for rhythmical rock sounds; provides for
dynamic vocals.
NOTES:
• During playback of a cassette deck connected to the
TAPE PB jacks, that signal will not be output from the
REC OUT jacks. Thus, you cannot record on cassette if
the playback source is a cassette, even if separate
cassette decks are connected to the TAPE PB jacks and
REC OUT jacks.
Also, it is not possible to record with a VCR connected to
the VCR OUT jacks during playback from a VCR source
connected to the VCR IN jacks.
• The settings for DIGITAL KEY CONTROL, KARAOKE,
DSS, and ECHO are included in the recorded sound.
Therefore, the recorded sound is similar to the sound
output from the speakers.
Press the same button again to cancel the effect.
• This function mostly effects sound coming through the
microphone.
Including video output with audio sources
If howling (a loud, high-pitched sound) occurs
Move the microphone farther away from the speakers,
decrease the microphone level, or lower the overall volume
with the volume control on your amplifier.
Notes on the microphone
When a microphone is not being used, turn it off and unplug
it.
When you choose either TAPE or AUX with the INPUT
selector, you can enjoy video images on the monitor from
the LD/CDG component while listening to the sound from the
TAPE or AUX component. If you set your VCR to the
recording mode, you can record both the TAPE or AUX
audio and LD/CDG video signals at the same time.

TROUBLESHOOTING
If this unit fails to operate normally, check the following table. It lists common operating errors and simple measures which can
correct them. If a problem cannot be corrected, or the symptom is not listed, disconnect the unit’s power cord and contact your
authorized YAMAHA dealer or service center for help.
SYMPTOM
POSSIBLE CAUSE
REMEDY
Microphone plug is not firmly inserted
into the jack.
Insert firmly.
Microphone is turned off.
Turn on the power of the microphone.
The volume of the original vocals
cannot be reduced even when the
MPX BAL control is turned to
the MUSIC side.
The MPX/STEREO button is not set
properly.
• With sound multiplex sources, set the MPX/
STEREO button to MPX. (The MPX indicator
lights.)
• With general stereo sources, set the MPX/
STEREO button to STEREO (the MPX indicator
goes off) and press the ONE TOUCH
KARAOKE button. The MPX BAL control does
not function with these sources.
Your voice does not replace the
original vocals when the VOCAL
AID button is pressed.
The volume level of the microphone is
low.
Turn up the volume of the microphone with the
MIC LEVEL control.
The singing voice is not loud enough.
Sing louder.
Sound from the playback source
cannot be heard.
The INPUT selector is not set properly.
Set it to the source to be played.
The echo effect does not work
MAGIC VOCAL is set to ON.
Turn off MAGIC VOCAL by pressing the MAGIC
VOCAL button.
Your voice is not heard through
the microphone.
• Sometimes a failure (e.g., when buttons do not function) may be remedied by disconnecting the AC power cord from the wall
outlet and connecting it again, since this resets the unit's microcomputer.
