Setting up your first HEOS AVR

Once you have placed your HEOS AVR in your listening room and have downloaded the HEOS app, you are ready to configure your HEOS AVR for music playback. This involves following a few simple steps to get the HEOS AVR connected to your existing home network:

DO NOT connect the Ethernet cable if you are connecting your HEOS AVR to a wireless network. If you are connecting the HEOS AVR to a wired network, use an Ethernet cable to connect the HEOS AVR to your network or router.

Make sure your mobile device is connected to your wireless network (the same network you want your HEOS AVR connected to).

You can check this in the Settings - Wi-Fi menu of your iOS or Android device.


If your wireless network is secure, make sure you know the password to join your network.

Make sure you have the included 1/8 inch (3.5 mm) setup cable handy.
Launch the HEOS app on your mobile device.
icon App HEOS
Tap the “Setup Now” button at the top of the screen.
Follow the instructions to add the HEOS AVR to your wireless network.

The Wi-Fi settings from your mobile device will be copied to the HEOS AVR via the audio cable.
