About Home Theater  
Speakers A and B  
You can use two sets of speakers with the AV receiver: Speakers A and Speakers B.  
Speakers A should be used in your main listening room for up to 5.1-channel playback.  
*
While Speakers B is on, Speakers A is reduced to 2.1-channel playback.  
Speakers B can be used in another room and offers 2-channel stereo playback.

Enjoying Home Theater  
Thanks to the AV receiver’s superb capabilities, you can enjoy surround sound with a real sense of movement in your  
own home—just like being in a movie theater or concert hall. With Blu-ray Discs, you can enjoy DTS and Dolby Digital.  
With analog or digital TV, you can enjoy Dolby Pro Logic II, DTS Neo:6, or Onkyo’s original DSP listening modes.  
a Front speakers  
These output the overall sound. Their role in a home theater is to provide  
a solid anchor for the sound image. They should be positioned facing the  
listener at about ear level, and equidistant from the TV. Angle them inward  
so as to create a triangle, with the listener at the apex.  
Speakers A: Main Room  
a
b
b Center speaker  
This speaker enhances the front speakers, making sound movements dis-  
tinct and providing a full sound image. In movies it’s used mainly for dia-  
log. Position it close to your TV facing forward at about ear level, or at the  
same height as the front speakers.  
Corner  
position  
*
While Speakers B is on, this speaker outputs no sound.  
c Surround speakers  
These speakers are used for precise sound positioning and to add realistic  
ambience. Position them at the sides of the listener, or slightly behind,  
about 2 to 3 feet (60 to 100 cm) above ear level. Ideally they should be  
equidistant from the listener.  
1/3 of wall  
position  
*
While Speakers B is on, these speakers outputs no sound.  
d Subwoofer  
c
The subwoofer handles the bass sounds of the LFE (Low-Frequency  
Effects) channel. The volume and quality of the bass output from your  
subwoofer will depend on its position, the shape of your listening room,  
and your listening position. In general, a good bass sound can be obtained  
by installing the subwoofer in a front corner, or at one-third the width of  
the wall, as shown.  
d
Speakers B: Sub Room  
Tip  
• To find the best position for your subwoofer, while playing a movie or some  
music with good bass, experiment by placing your subwoofer at various  
positions within the room, and choose the one that provides the most satis-  
fying results.

Connecting the AV Receiver  
• Unnecessarily long, or very thin speaker cables may  
Connecting Your Speakers  
affect the sound quality and should be avoided.  
• Be careful not to short the positive and negative wires.  
Doing so may damage the AV receiver.  
Speaker Configuration  
The following table indicates the channels you should use  
depending on the number of speakers that you have.  
For 5.1-channel surround-sound playback, you need five  
speakers and a powered subwoofer.  
• Make sure the metal core of the wire does not have con-  
tact with the AV receiver’s rear panel. Doing so may  
damage the AV receiver.

Center speaker  
Surround speakers  
No matter how many speakers you use, a powered sub-  
woofer is recommended for a really powerful and solid  
bass.  
To get the best from your surround sound system, you  
need to set the speaker settings. You can do this manually  
(30).  
Attaching the Speaker Cable Labels  
The AV receiver’s positive (+) speaker terminals are color-  
coded for ease of identification. (The negative (–) speaker  
terminals are all black.)

• Don’t connect more than one cable to each speaker ter-  
minal. Doing so may damage the AV receiver.  
• Don’t connect one speaker to several terminals.  
Surround left  
Surround right  
Gray  
The supplied speaker cable labels are also color-coded and  
you should attach them to the positive (+) side of each  
speaker cable in accordance with the table above. Then all  
you need to do is to match the color of each label to the  
corresponding speaker terminal.  
Speaker Connection Precautions  
Read the following before connecting your speakers:  
You can connect speakers with an impedance of between  
6 and 16 ohms. If you use speakers with a lower imped-  
ance, and use the amplifier at high volume levels for a  
long period of time, the built-in amp protection circuit  
may be activated.  
• Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet before  
making any connections.  
• Read the instructions supplied with your speakers.  
• Pay close attention to speaker wiring polarity. In other  
words, connect positive (+) terminals only to positive (+)  
terminals, and negative (–) terminals only to negative (–)  
terminals. If you get them the wrong way around, the  
sound will be out of phase and will sound unnatural.

Connecting the Speaker Cables  
Screw-type speaker terminals  
Strip 1/2" to 5/8" (12 to 15 mm) of insu-  
lation from the ends of the speaker  
cables, and twist the bare wires tightly,  
as shown.  
1/2" to 5/8"(12 to 15 mm)  
Using Banana Plugs (North American models)  
• If you are using banana plugs, tighten the speaker terminal before inserting the banana plug.  
• Do not insert the speaker code directly into the center hole of the speaker terminal.  
Push-type speaker terminals  
Strip 3/8" to 1/2" (10 to 12 mm) of insulation from the ends of the  
speaker cables, and twist the bare wires tightly, as shown.

Refer to “About HDMI” (49) and “Using an RIHD-compatible TV, Player, or Recorder” (50).  
Tip  
To listen to audio received by the HDMI IN jacks through your TV’s speakers:  
• Set the “TV Control” setting to “On” (33) for an p-compatible TV.  
• Set the “Audio TV OUT” setting to “On” (32) when the TV is not compatible with p or the “TV Control” setting to “Off”.  
• Set your Blu-ray Disc/DVD player’s HDMI audio output setting to PCM.  
• To listen to TV audio through the AV receiver, see “Connecting External Components” (15).  
Note  
• When listening to an HDMI component through the AV receiver, set the HDMI component so that its video can be seen on the TV  
screen (on the TV, select the input of the HDMI component connected to the AV receiver). If the TV power is off or the TV is set to  
another input source, this may result in no sound from the AV receiver or the sound may be cut off.  
• When the “Audio TV OUT” setting is set to “On” (32) to hear from your TV’s speakers, by controlling the AV receiver’s volume,  
the sound will be output from the AV receiver’s speakers, too. When the TV Control” setting is set to On(33) to hear from  
speakers of p-compatible TV, by controlling the AV receiver’s volume, the AV receiver’s speakers will produce sound while the  
TV’s speakers are muted. To stop the AV receiver’s speakers producing sound, change the settings, change your TV’s settings, or turn  
down the AV receiver’s volume.  
Audio return channel (ARC) function
