Connecting an IR receiver

If you keep your stereo components in a closed cabinet or
shelving unit, you can use an optional IR receiver to
control your system instead of the remote sensor on the
front panel of this receiver. You may need to specify your
IR receiver type in
Multi-Room and IR receiver setup
on
page 85.
1 Connect the IR receiver sensor to the MULTI-
ROOM & SOURCE IR IN jack on the rear of this
receiver.
2 Connect the IR IN jack of another component to
the MULTI-ROOM & SOURCE IR OUT jack on the rear
of this receiver to link it to the IR receiver.
Please see the manual supplied with your IR receiver for
the type of cable necessary for the connection.
If you want to link a Pioneer component to the IR
receiver, see
Operating other Pioneer components
with this unit’s sensor
on page 65 to connect to the
CONTROL
jacks instead of the
IR OUT
jack.
Note
Remote operation may not be possible if direct light
from a strong fluorescent lamp is shining on the IR
receiver remote sensor window.
Note that other manufacturers may not use the IR
terminology. Refer to the manual that came with your
component to check for IR compatibility.
If using two remote controls (at the same time), the
IR receiver’s remote sensor takes priority over the
remote sensor on the front panel.

Connecting additional amplifiers

This receiver has more than enough power for any home
use, but it’s possible to add additional amplifiers to every
channel of your system using the pre-outs. Make the
connections shown below to add amplifiers to power
your speakers.
Note
Before making or changing the connections, switch
off the power and disconnect the power cord from the
AC outlet.
You can use the additional amplifier on the surround
back channel pre-outs for a single speaker as well. In
this case plug the amplifier into the left (
L (Single)
)
terminal only.
The sound from the surround back terminals will
depend on how you have configured the
Surround
back speaker setting
on page 55.
