Speaker cables have two wires. One is for connecting the
negative (–) terminals of the unit and the speaker, and the
other is for the positive (+) terminals. If the wires are
colored to prevent confusion, connect the black wire to
the negative and the other wire to the positive terminals.

mm (3/8”) of insulation
from the ends of the
speaker cable and twist
the bare wires of the cable

5 Optimizing the speaker settings automatically (YPAO)
1
The Yamaha Parametric room Acoustic Optimizer (YPAO) function detects speaker connections, measures the
distances from them to your listening position(s), and then automatically optimizes the speaker settings, such as
volume balance and acoustic parameters, to suit your room.
Connect the YPAO microphone to the
YPAO MIC jack on the front panel.
The following screen appears.

• During the measuring process, test tones are output at high volume. Ensure that

If the speaker is connected correctly:
4
Disconnect the YPAO microphone from the
unit.
This completes optimization of the speaker settings.
• The YPAO microphone is sensitive to heat, so should not be
placed anywhere where it could be exposed to direct sunlight or
high temperatures (such as on top of AV equipment).
Depending on the type of speakers or room
environment, this message may appear even if the
speakers are connected correctly.
In this case, you can ignore the message.
Proceed to step 3.
If the speaker is connected incorrectly:
Turn off the unit, reconnect the speaker cable, and then
try YPAO measurement again.
