Setting up the system

Make connections as shown in the following pages.
When connecting the related system components, be sure
to refer to the instruction manuals supplied with the
components you are connecting.
Do not connect the power cord to a wall outlet until all
connections are completed.
1. Be sure to insert all connection cords securely. If their connections are
imperfect, sound may not be produced or there will be noise inference.
2. Be sure to remove the power cord from the AC outlet before plugging
or unplugging any connection cords. Plugging/unplugging connection
cords without disconnecting the power cord can cause malfunctions
and may damage the unit.
3. Do not connect power cords from components whose power
consumption is larger than what is indicated on the AC outlet at the
rear of this unit.
Analog connections
Audio connections are made using RCA pin cords. These cables transfer
stereo audio signal in an "analog" form. This means the audio signal
corresponds to the actual audio of two channels. These cables usually
have 2 plugs on each end, one red for the right channel and one white for
the left channel. These cables are usually packed together with the
source unit, or are available at your local electronics retailer.
Microcomputer malfunction
If operation is not possible or an erroneous display appears, even
though all connections have been made properly, reset the
microcomputer referring to "In case of difficulty".
