How to Use an Optical Cable With a Yamaha RX-V365 Amp


Optical audio is a type of high-quality audio connection that can be used to attach digital cable converter boxes and other home entertainment devices to a speaker system. Optical connections feature much better sound quality than that offered by RCA audio or standard coaxial connections, so if you wish to take advantage of this superior sound quality by using an optical audio connection with a Yamaha RX-V365 amplifier, you can do so in just a few basic steps.

  • Attach one end of the optical audio cable to the optical audio input on the Yamaha RX-V365. The optical audio inputs are located on the bottom-left of the back panel of the unit, just above the coaxial input. As the labeling suggests, an optical cable from a digital cable box should be plugged into the "DTV/CBL" connection, and from a CD player into the "CD" optical input.

  • Connect the other end of the optical audio cable to the cable converter box or CD player that you are trying to use with the Yamaha RX-V365 Amp.

  • Use the input select controls on the front of the Yamaha RX-V365 to tune the unit to the optical audio input. The select buttons are labeled as "<" and ">," press them repeatedly until the Yamaha RX-V365 is set to the optical input. You should now hear the audio from the device you connected, outputting through the speakers connected to the Yamaha RX-V365.
