5 minute guide
Introduction to home theater
Home theater refers to the use of multiple
audio tracks to create a surround sound effect,
making you feel like you're in the middle of the
action or concert. The surround sound you get
from a home theater system depends not only
on your speaker setup, but also on the source
and the sound settings of the receiver.
This receiver will automatically decode
multichannel Dolby Digital, DTS, or Dolby
Surround sources according to your speaker
setup. In most cases, you won’t have to make
changes for realistic surround sound, but
other possibilities (like listening to a CD with
multichannel surround sound) are explained in
Listening to your system on page 25.
Listening to Surround Sound
This receiver was designed with the easiest
possible setup in mind, so with the following
quick setup guide, you should have your
system hooked up for surround sound in no
time at all. In most cases, you can simply leave
the receiver in the default settings.
• Be sure to complete all connections before
connecting to an AC power source.
1 Connect your TV and DVD player.
See Connecting a TV and DVD player on
page 11 to do this. For surround sound, you’ll
want to hook up using a digital connection
from the DVD player to the receiver.
2 Connect your speakers and place them for
optimal surround sound.
See Connecting the speakers on page 16.
Where you place the speakers will have a big
effect on the sound. Place your speakers as
shown below for the best surround sound
effect. Also see Hints on speaker placement on
page 17 for more on this.

to this receiver. Check the manual that came
with the TV if you don’t know how to do this.
4 Press QUICK SETUP on the front panel to
specify your speaker setup, room size and
listening position.
Use the MULTI JOG dial to select and ENTER
to confirm your selection. See Using the Quick

5 Play a DVD, and adjust the volume.
Make sure that DVD is showing in the
receiver’s display, indicating that the DVD
input is selected. If it isn’t, press DVD on the
remote to set the receiver to the DVD input.
There are several other sound options you can
select. See Listening to your system on page 25
for more on this.1See also The System Setup
menu on page 31 for more setup options.
Note
1 Depending on your DVD player or source discs, you may only get digital 2 channel stereo and analog sound. In this case, the
listening mode must be set to STANDARD (it should already be set—see Listening in surround sound on page 25 if you need to
do this) if you want multichannel surround sound.

switch them off if necessary.2 If there are any
instructions showing in the front panel display,
please follow them.
Note
1 • Depending on the characteristics of your room, sometimes identical speakers with cone sizes of around 12cm will end up
with different size settings. You can correct the setting manually using the Speaker setting on page 35.
• The subwoofer distance setting may be farther than the actual distance from the listening position. This setting should be
accurate (taking delay and room characteristics into account) and generally does not need to be changed.
2 Some older TVs may interfere with operation of the mic. You may want to switch off your TV during the Auto MCACC Setup.

Making cable connections
Make sure not to bend the cables over the top
of this unit (as shown in the illustration). If this
happens, the magnetic field produced by the
transformers in this unit may cause a
humming noise from the speakers.
Use stereo RCA phono cables to connect
analog audio components. These cables are
typically red and white, and you should
connect the red plugs to R (right) terminals
and white plugs to L (left) terminals.

Standard RCA video cables
These cables are the most common type of
video connection and should be used to
connect to the composite video terminals. They
have yellow plugs to distinguish them from
cables for audio.
Standard RCA video cable
Note
1 • When connecting optical cables, be careful when inserting the plug not to damage the shutter protecting the optical socket.
• When storing optical cable, coil loosely. The cable may be damaged if bent around sharp corners.
• You can also use a standard RCA video cable for coaxial digital connections.

About the WMA9 Pro decoder
This unit has an on-board Windows Media®
Audio 9 Professional (WMA9 Pro) decoder, so
it is possible to playback WMA9 Pro-encoded
audio using a coaxial or optical digital
connection when connected to a WMA9 Procompatible player. However, the connected
DVD player, set-top box, etc. must be able to
output WMA9 Pro format audio signals
through a coaxial or optical digital output.
Note
1 Note that you must connect digital components to analog audio jacks if you want to record to/from digital components (like
an MD) to/from analog components.

Connecting the speakers
A complete speaker setup is shown below, but everyone’s home setup will vary. Simply connect
the speakers you have in the manner illustrated. The receiver will work with just two stereo
speakers (the front speakers in the diagram) but using at least three speakers ( VSX-416 model) /
four speakers (VSX-516 model) is recommended, and a complete setup is best for surround sound.
If you’re not using a subwoofer, change the front speaker setting (see Speaker setting on page 35)
to LARGE.
Make sure you connect the speaker on the right to the right terminal and the speaker on the left
to the left terminal. Also make sure the positive and negative ( +/–) terminals on the receiver match
those on the speakers. You can use speakers with a nominal impedance between 6 Ω to 16 Ω
(please see Switching the speaker impedance on page 46 if you plan to use speakers with an
impedance of less than 8 Ω).
Be sure to complete all connections before connecting this unit to the AC power source.

Hints on speaker placement
Speakers are usually designed with a
particular placement in mind. Some are
designed to be floorstanding, while others
should be placed on stands to sound their best.
Some should be placed near a wall; others
should be placed away from walls. We have
provided a few tips on getting the best sound
from your speakers (following), but you should
also follow the guidelines on placement that
the speaker manufacturer provided with your
particular speakers to get the most out of
them.
• To achieve the best possible surround
sound, install your speakers as shown
below. Be sure all speakers are installed
securely to prevent accidents and improve
sound quality.
Caution
• If you choose to install the center speaker
on top of the TV, be sure to secure it with
putty, or by other suitable means, to reduce
the risk of damage or injury resulting from
the speaker falling from the TV in the event
of external shocks such as earthquakes.
Español
• These speaker terminals carry
HAZARDOUS LIVE voltage. To prevent
the risk of electric shock when connecting
or disconnecting the speaker cables,
disconnect the power cord before touching
any uninsulated parts.
• Try not to place the surround speakers
further away from the listening position
than the front and center speakers. Doing
so can weaken the surround sound effect.
Nederlands
Caution
• If possible, place the surround speakers
slightly above ear level.
Make sure that all the bare speaker wire is
twisted together and inserted fully into the
speaker terminal. If any of the bare speaker
wire is touching the back panel when you
switch the unit on, the power may cut off as a
safety measure. Use good quality speaker wire
to connect the speakers to the receiver.
• Place the center speaker above or below
the TV so that the sound of the center
channel is localized at the TV screen.
Français
1
• When placing speakers near the TV, we
recommend using magnetically shielded
speakers to prevent possible interference,
such as discoloration of the picture when
the TV is switched on. If you do not have
magnetically shielded speakers and notice
discoloration of the TV picture, move the
speakers farther away from the TV.
Deutsch
3
• Place the front left and right speakers at
equal distances from the TV.
English

04
• Make sure no exposed speaker wire is
touching the rear panel, this may cause the
receiver to turn off automatically.

Acoustic Calibration Equalization is a kind of
room equalizer for your speakers (excluding
the subwoofer). It works by measuring the
acoustic characteristics of your room and
neutralizing the ambient characteristics that
can color the original source material. This
provides a ‘flat’ equalization setting. If you’re
not satisfied with the automatic adjustment,
you can also adjust these settings manually to
get a frequency balance that suits your tastes.
• A. CH – All Channel Adjust is a ‘flat’ setting
where all the speakers are set individually
