Speaker connection

Here we connect the speakers in the room to this unit.

This section explains how to connect them using typical examples.

NOTE

• Disconnect this unit’s power plug from the power outlet before connecting the 

speakers. Also, turn off the subwoofer.

• Connect so that the speaker cable core wires do not protrude from the speaker 

terminal. The protection circuit may be activated if the core wires touch the rear 
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.

 

2 Connecting the speaker cables

Carefully check the left (L) and right (R) channels and + (red) and – 

(black) polarities on the speakers being connected to this unit, and be 

sure to connect the channels and polarities correctly.

1

Peel off about 3/8 inch (10 mm) of 

sheathing from the tip of the speaker 

cable, then either twist the core wire 

tightly or terminate it.

2

Turn the speaker terminal counterclockwise 

to loosen it.

3

Insert the speaker cable’s core wire to the 

hilt into the speaker terminal.

4

Turn the speaker terminal clockwise to 

tighten it.
