Speaker connection

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

This section explains how to connect them using typical examples.


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. (Protection circuitlink)

Never touch the speaker terminals while the power cord is connected. Doing so could result in electric shock. When the “Setup Assistant” (page 7 in the separate “Quick Start Guide”) 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.

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.

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.
Press the lever on the speaker terminal.

The same signal is output from the respective subwoofer terminals.
