Yamaha AX-1070 Owner's Manual: Connections

Natural sound stereo integrated amplifier.
Hide thumbs


Connect the SPEAKERS terminals to your speakers with wire
of the proper gauge, cut as short as possible. If the
connections are faulty, no sound will be heard from the
speakers. Make sure that the polarity of the speaker wires is
correct, that is, + and – markings are observed. If these wires
are reversed, the sound will be unnatural and will lack bass.
Do not let the bare speaker wires touch each other and do
not let them touch the metal parts of this unit as this could
damage this unit and/or speakers.
How to Connect:
Red: positive (+)
Black: negative (–)
(Europe and General models) ............3 SWITCHED OUTLETS
(Australia and U.K. models) ..................1 SWITCHED OUTLET
Use these to connect the power cords from your components
to this unit.
The power to the SWITCHED outlets is controlled by this unit's
POWER switch or the provided remote control transmitter's
POWER key. These outlets will supply power to any
component whenever this unit is turned on.
The maximum power (total power consumption of
components) that can be connected to the SWITCHED AC
OUTLETS is 200 watts.
If you have a YAMAHA turntable with a terminal for remote
control, connect it to this connector by using the cable provided
with the turntable. This connection allows you to control the
turntable from the provided remote control transmitter.
GND terminal (For turntable use)
Connecting the ground wire of the turntable to this terminal will
normally minimize hum, but in some cases better results may
be obtained with the ground wire disconnected.
Unscrew the knob.
Insert the bare wire.
[Remove approx. 5mm
(1/4") insulation from
the speaker wires.]
Tighten the knob and
secure the wire.
One or two speaker systems can be connected to this unit.
If you connect only one speaker system, connect it to either
the SPEAKERS A or B terminals.
Use speakers with the specified impedance shown on the
rear of this unit.
Banana Plug connections are also possible (except for
Scandinavian models). Simply insert the Banana Plug
connector into the corresponding terminal.
PRE OUT/MAIN IN terminals
Removing the jumper pins enables this unit to independently
perform the functions of a control amplifier and a power
amplifier. These terminals are for connection of a signal-
processing system such as a graphic equalizer or sound
If a sound processor or other component is connected, the
VOLUME control of this unit can be used for overall
adjustment of the level of sound. To connect such a unit,
remove the jumper pins from the PRE OUT/MAIN IN terminals,
connect the inputs of that unit to the PRE OUT terminals and
its outputs to the MAIN IN terminals. For details, refer to the
owner's manual included with the unit to be connected.
