Connecting to Audio-Visual Components

This receiver allows you to connect to a large variety of audio or video components.
Protect your Components from Overheating
Do not block ventilation holes in any component. Arrange the components so that air can circulate freely. Do not stack components directly on top of each other. Allow adequate ventilation when placing your components in a stand. Place an amplifier near the top shelf of the stand so heating air rising from it will not affect other components. If you have a satellite receiver, you should place it on the top shelf.

Before you Connect

Protect components from power surges. Connect all components before plugging any power cords into the wall outlet. Always turn off the receiver and/or components before you connect or disconnect any cables. Contact consumer relations if you have questions concerning the connections or components. Note: Always make sure that color-coded pins match the color of the terminals in which they are inserted. The connection cable plugs and jacks are color-coded as follows: Speaker Terminals: RT 2250 - Red/Black (Main Speakers), Blue/Black (Center Speaker), Grey/Black (Rear Speakers) and Brown/Black (subwoofer). RT2250R - Red/ Black (Main, Center & Rear Speakers) RCA Phono Type Terminals: Red for the right (R) channel. White for the left (L) channel. Yellow for the video. Black for the powered subwoofer.

Positioning the Cables

Cables should be positioned correctly to avoid audio hum or interference. Below are a few suggestions: Insert all cable plugs into their jacks firmly. Place audio/video cables to the sides of the receivers back panel instead of straight down the middle after you have connected the components. Try not to coil any power cables and keep them away from the audio/video cables as much as possible. Make sure all antennas and cables are properly grounded.

Page 8

EN Connecting to Audio-Visual Components
If you have a SAT receiver or DVD player, you can make use of an optical digital connecting cord (not supplied) or coaxial digital connecting cord (not supplied) to enjoy Dolby Digital sound quality. One optical / coaxial cable is needed for each SAT receiver / DVD player. When optical or coaxial cable is used, no more analog cable is needed. Note: This receiver provides one optical and one coaxial digital input for the connection of your auxillary components. Please connect your components (e.g. DVD, SAT or CD) to the appropriate digital inputs and press SET/ DEMO and then rotate MULTI JOG to match your connection.

Red/Black (Main Speakers), Blue/Black (Center Speaker) and Grey/ Black (Rear Speakers). When connecting the speakers, make sure the colors of speaker wires and terminals are matched. If the cords are reversed, the sound will be distorted and will lack bass.


NOTE: Make sure the insulation is completely removed from the ends of the Antenna and speaker wires at all connection points.
Use this jack on the left back panel for connecting powered sub- woofer.


If you want to enjoy full range of sound effects, with small speakers, it is a must to use the subwoofer with the speakers to maintain adequate bass signal for the surround sound effect. Speaker cords, 1 for each speaker, are needed for connection. Twist the stripped ends of speaker cord about 2/3 inch (15 mm). Press down on the tab to open the terminal and insert the wire. Snap the tab closed. To ease speaker connections, the speaker cords and the terminals are color-coded into:

Connecting the Subwoofer

For RT2250, connect the subwoofer with the audio cord (brown/ black) provided. For RT2250R, or if you want to connect your own powered subwoofer, a monoaural audio cord (not supplied) is needed. This receiver offers a high flexibility for user to use a large variety of speakers and subwoofers. For more information please refer to section Fine Setting of the Speakers in Advanced Sound Control on page 12.
Release tab to lock wire in the terminal.
At least two front speakers (left and right) are required. For better sound quality, Center speaker, rear speakers and Subwoofer are preferred. Adding center and rear speakers will enhance surround effects. Adding a Subwoofer will increase bass response.
Push Speaker terminal tab down to insert wire.

EN Positioning your Speakers
Your system is equipped with Dolby Digital, which enables the unit to reproduce sound effects as they were intended. However, the speakers must be properly positioned and balanced. In order to enjoy Dolby-enhanced sound quality, five speakers are preferred: One center speaker, left and right main speakers, rear left and right speakers, and an optional subwoofer. However, if your front speakers are small speakers, then a subwoofer is essential or you will not be able to enjoy enhanced bass effects. Below are a few suggestions for the set up: 1. The two main speakers should be set between six and ten feet apart. Putting them any closer or farther apart may result in less satisfactory sound. 2. Try to align center speaker and two main speakers, or set the center speaker slightly behind the left and right main speakers, otherwise the surround effect may be less satisfactory. 3. Aim the rear speakers directly at the two main speakers, matching height to height. If the room is sparsely decorated, slightly tilt the speakers down to increase sound quality. If the room is densely decorated, face the speakers towards the rear wall at the ceiling. to Fine Setting of the Speakers on page 12 & Speaker Distance on page 13

Sound Enhancement Systems
This receiver is equipped with several built-in sound enhancement systems to give you the sound quality you have once dreamed of but now comes true: arate channels of digital audio, and these six channels of independent digital audio are pressed to a single stream of digital data on your DVD. When you play it by your DVD player, the receiver decodes this stream of digital data back to six audio channels for playback. Dolby Digital is optimal for DVD and SAT. This unit is equipped with Dolby Digital 5.1-channel input terminal so that you can enjoy enhanced full digital surround sound. Being different from Dolby Pro Logic in which only four channels ( Front Left, Front Right, Centre and Rear ) are used, the new system provides stereo separation of the rear speakers (Rear-Right, Rear-Left ). These 5 channels, together with the subwoofer channel for bass sounds ( counted as 0.1 channel ), constitue as 5.1-Channel ( or 6 Channels ) Input for Dolby Digital that brings you the most sophisicated sound enjoyment. Press 6 CH on the unit or DVD6 CH button on the remote to select the input connected to an external 6channel decoder. Press again return to the most recently selected mode.You can only adjust Sound Control, SLEEP mode, DIM selection, Source Buttons and MUTE when this mode is selected.

Fine Setting of the Speakers
This receiver supports a wide range of speakers and subwoofers. For optimal surround sound enjoyment, you need to register the speaker selection settings of your audio system. If you buy this receiver with accompanied speaker package, then this step has been done for you. Also, to make the surround sound more effective and suit the acoustic conditions in your listening room, you need to delay the signal from some of the speakers. Such channel delay compensates for center or surround speakers that are closer to listening position than the front speakers. You can make use of the TEST/ SET UP button to control the speakers such as their relative loudness.
Fine Setting of the Components

Input IQ

One of the smartest features of the receiver is the ability to pre-select the best surround mode for you once you turn on the unit by pressing the Source Buttons (like DVD, SAT, CD) directly. The default surround modes for different components are as table below. If you decide to change the surround mode, you can press the SURR MODE button to change to the mode you want.

Displaying Program Formats
When a digital source is playing, the receiver will automatically switch to the proper surround mode and indicates on the speaker icons on the right-hand side of the display. (See diagram) It is important to note, however, that not all Dolby Digital sources are encoded with the full complement of five channels plus LFE*. Speaker icons show how many and which speaker you have enabled (See Fine Setting of the Speakers) and the letters inside the speaker icons show which channel is present in the source information. For example, the diagram shown means you have all the five speakers and subwoofer enabled and the digital sources you played have five channels plus LFE complemented.
* LFE stands for Low Frequency Effect. The indication LFE appears if the digital source contains LFE information. In this case, the bass signal will be delivered to the subwoofer, offering more dynamic deep bass sound effects. If the letter is flashing, the signal is either too weak or just gone.

Speaker Distance

To make the surround sound more effective and suit the acoustic conditions in your listening room, you need to input the distance of the speakers measured from your favourite listening position. The receiver will adjust the appropriate delay compensation for you.
