Updated February 21, 2017

The Technics SA-AX530 is an audio-video receiver for home theatre manufactured by Panasonic under the Technics brand name.The SA-AX530 is equipped with a variety of connection jacks for hooking up AV and stereo components such as DVD players, tape decks and VCRs, as well as speaker connections for a 5.1 surround sound system. The Technics receiver connects to other components using standard, composite-type AV cables with colour-coded plugs for quick set-up.

Arrange the Technics SA-AX530 and other AV components on the shelves of an entertainment centre or stereo rack. Place the Technics SA-AX530 on top for proper ventilation.

Connect the three plugs on a composite cable to AV components such as DVD players and VCRs, using the colour-coded jacks on the back of each component, then insert the plugs on the other end to the labelled jacks for each component on the back of the Technics SA-AX530. Stereo components such as CD players have two colour-coded plugs, white and red, for the left and right audio channels, respectively.

Plug a yellow video cable into the Video OUT jack on the Technics SA-AX530 and insert the other end into the Video IN jack on the back of a TV.

Cut a length of speaker wire for each speaker that will be hooked up to the Technics SA-AX530, then strip 1/2 inch of insulation from each end.

Lift the spring clips on the back of the Technics SA-AX530, labelled for each speaker, to reveal two holes for inserting speaker wires. Insert the red wire in the hole for the positive terminal and the other wire for the negative terminal.

Connect the other end of each wire to its matching speaker in the same manner, lifting the terminal clips to expose the wire holes.

Plug all power cords into a surge protector and connect the surge protector to a wall outlet.


Connect all AV cables and speaker wires before plugging in your system.
