Audio/Video (AV) receivers are commonly found in home theatre systems, and including a PC in a home theatre set-up is one way to improve the audio experience. Musically, it can have a massive impact on your listening experience and can bring a house party to life. Watching movies online will also be an optimised experience. As Yamaha specialises in audio products, their receivers in particular have excellent sound and are a good choice for channelling music.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Plug the 3.5mm end of the cable into the line out from your computer's sound card. This will be located at the back of your computer if it is a desktop model. See Resources for a link to the sound card colour code.

  2. 2

    Plug the RCA end of the cable into an audio input on the AV receiver. Many Yamaha models feature 2 sets of audio inputs labelled "Audio 1" and "Audio 2." These inputs are positioned vertically side by side.

  3. 3

    On the AV receiver, select the audio input to which your computer is connected. On a Yamaha receiver, the input will be called either "Audio 1" or "Audio 2," depending on which input you connected your RCA cables to at the back.

  4. 4

    Adjust the output volume on the receiver, and you should be able to hear the routed audio.
