Using the multichannel analog inputs

If you’ve connected to the multichannel inputs on the
rear panel (see
Connecting the multichannel analog
outputs
on page 20), you will be able to select them as
your input source.
1 Make sure you have set the playback source to
the proper output setting.
For example, you might need to set your DVD player to
output multichannel analog audio.
2Press MULTI CH INPUT (MULTI CH IN on the front
panel) to select the multichannel analog inputs.
MULTI CH IN
shows in the display to indicate the audio
is coming from the multichannel analog inputs,
regardless of the input source selected. The input source
remains dedicated to the multichannel inputs until you
press
MULTI CH IN
/
MULTI CH INPUT
again to cancel.
If you need to set the channel levels, see
Channel
Level
on page 56 to do so.
Note
You can’t use any signal processing features (for
example, the
MOVIE
or
MUSIC
modes or the tone
controls) with the multichannel analog inputs.
Any speakers set to
NO
in the
Speaker Setting
on
page 55 do not output the audio for the
corresponding channel.
You can’t use the Second Zone speaker B setup
(page 71) with the multichannel analog inputs.
