Marantz SR5008 Owners Manual
Here we connect the speakers in the room to this unit.
This section explains how to connect them using typical examples.

panel or if the + and – sides touch each other (vpage 221 “Protection circuit”).
• Never touch the speaker terminals while the power cord is connected. Doing so
could result in electric shock. When the “Setup Assistant” is running, follow the
instructions in the “Setup Assistant” screen for making connections. (Power is not
supplied to the speaker terminals while the “Setup Assistant” is running.)
• Use speakers with an impedance of 6 – 16 Ω/ohms.
