5.1-channel playback (bi-amp connection of front speaker)

This system plays back 5.1-channels. You can use the bi-amp connection for front speakers. Bi-amp connection is a method to connect separate amplifiers to the tweeter terminal and woofer terminal of a speaker that supports bi-amplification. This connection enables back EMF (power returned without being output) from the woofer to flow into the tweeter without affecting the sound quality, producing a higher sound quality.

5.1-channel playback + second pair of front speaker

This system enables switching playback between front speakers A and B as desired.

5.1-channel playback (MAIN ZONE) + 2-channel playback (ZONE2)

This connection method constructs a 5.1-channel speaker system in the MAIN ZONE and a 2-channel system in ZONE2.

Connecting an external power amplifier

You can use this unit as a pre-amp by connecting an external power amplifier to the PRE OUT connectors. By adding a power amplifier to each channel, the realness of the sound can be further enhanced.

Select the terminal to use and connect the device.
