Flow of the speaker configurations

Before using the unit, adjust the speaker settings such as volume balance and acoustic parameters. With the supplied YPAO microphone, the unit detects speaker connections and measures the distances from them to your listening position(s) that is measuring position(s). And then, the unit automatically optimizes the speaker settings such as volume balance and acoustic parameters. (YPAO: Yamaha Parametric room Acoustic Optimizer)

  • During the measuring process, test tones are output at high volume. You cannot adjust the volume.
  • During the measuring process, stay in a back corner of the room and note the following for accurate measurement.
  • Keep the room as quiet as possible.
