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 this unit to the AC power source.
1
Hook up your DVD player.
For surround sound, you'll want to hook up using a digital connection from the DVD player to
the receiver. You can do this with either a coaxial, or an optical connection (you don't need to
connect both). If you hook up using an optical cable, you should refer to Digital input settings
on page 50 to assign the optical input to DVD .
Use a video cord to connect the video output on your DVD player to the receiver using the jacks
as shown in the illustration.
2
Hook up your TV.
Use a video cord to connect your receiver to the TV using the jacks as shown in the illustration.

Connect your speakers.
A complete setup of speakers is shown here (six speakers for the VSX-D712, and eight for the
VSX-D812), but everyone's home setup will vary. Simply connect the speakers you have in the
manner shown below. The receiver will work with just two stereo speakers (the front speakers in
the diagram) but using at least three speakers is recommended, and a complete setup is best.
