Connecting digital audio sources

This receiver has both digital inputs and outputs,
allowing you to connect digital components for playback
and for making digital recordings. Many digital
components also have analog connections for recording
analog sources (such as a turntable or tape deck). See
Connecting analog audio sources
below for more on this.
1Connect a coaxial digital output on your digital
component to the DIGITAL 4 (CD) input on this
receiver.
Use a coaxial digital audio cable for the connection.
If your digital component only has an optical digital
output, you can connect it to one of the optical inputs
on this receiver using an optical cable. When you set
up the receiver you’ll need to tell the receiver which
input you connected the player to (see
Assigning the
digital inputs
on page 81).
The digital outputs from other components can be
connected to any spare digital audio inputs on this
receiver. You can assign them when setting up the
receiver (see
Assigning the digital inputs
on page 81).
2 Connect one of the DIGITAL outputs on this
receiver to a digital input on the component.
Use an optical cable to connect to the
DIGITAL
OUT1
or
OUT2
(
OUT2
is shown in the illustration
below).
Note
In order to record some digital sources, you must
make analog connections as explained in
