Connecting speakers

Connect the SPEAKERS terminals to your speakers with
the wire with the proper gauge (keep it as short as
possible). If the connections are faulty, no sound will be
heard from the speakers. Make sure that the + and –
polarity markings of the speaker wires are observed and set
correctly. If these wires are reversed, the sound will be
unnatural and lack bass.
Caution
Do not let the bare speaker wires touch each other or
any metal part of this unit. This could damage this unit
or the speakers, or both.
How to Connect:
Red: positive (+)
Black: negative (–)

requirements your speaker
system meets.
(Right position)
If you use one pair of speakers, the impedance of
each speaker must be 4
If you use two pairs of speakers, the impedance of
each speaker must be 8
(Left position)
If you use one pair of speakers, the impedance of
each speaker must be 6
If you use two pairs of speakers, the impedance of
each speaker must be 12 or higher.

Australia, China and General models only
Banana Plug connections are also possible. Simply
insert the Banana Plug connector into the corresponding
terminal.
AC OUTLET(S) (SWITCHED)
(Europe, China and General models)
...................................................... 3 SWITCHED OUTLETS
(U.K. and Australia models) ............. 1 SWITCHED OUTLET
Use these to connect the power cords of your components
to this unit.
The power to the SWITCHED outlets is controlled by this
unit's POWER or STANDBY/ON switch. These outlets will
supply power to any connected unit whenever this unit is
turned on.
The maximum power (total power consumption of
components) that can be connected to the SWITCHED AC
OUTLETS is 100W.
GND terminal (For turntable use)
Connecting the ground wire of the turntable to the GND
terminal will normally minimize hum, but in some cases
better results may be obtained with the ground wire
disconnected.
