The Yamaha receiver uses standard audio cables to connect with a TV set. When programs recorded in multichannel audio are played on TV, the Yamaha receiver will process the 5.1 audio signal to a pair of front speakers flanking the TV, a centre channel for dialogue, two rear speakers and a subwoofer for bass.
