headphones simultaneously. If you have a family member or a friend
who is hearing impaired, we recommend this setup. You can connect
one pair of headphones at a time.

Multi-source, multi-room
By connecting a pair of speakers in a second room to the AV receiver,
it’s possible to enjoy 5.1 channel surround sound in the main room
and a separate source or music stream in the second room, such
as a den or patio. You can also play the same audio in both so that
everyone in your home can enjoy and cheer your favorite team on
Sunday evening or listen to the same song in both rooms. The AV
receiver supports 2-source, 2-zone audio.

instructions to get started. Just connect your AV receiver to your
TV and follow the instructions on the TV screen to connect your
speakers, perform speaker measurements, and connect source
devices. For additional convenience, the AV receiver renames HDMI
inputs automatically when connected or you can rename manually
at your convenience.

simple, accurate setup and calibration. With the supplied Audyssey
measuring microphone, Audyssey measures all the speakers in your
home theater, and tunes the AV receiver to provide the smoothest,
most optimal overall listening experience for your room. This AV
