How to Hook Up a Sony S Master Digital Amplifier to the TV
Sony's S Master digital amplifier series is designed for use with high definition television. The amp connects to the HDTV with a High Definition Media Interface (HDMI) cable. This 19-pin cable transmits high definition video signals and up to eight channels of digital audio. The cable installs in seconds for fast setup. Add a Blu-Ray player to start watching high definition movies in five minutes or less.
Things You'll Need
- Sony S Master Digital Amplifier
- HDMI cable
Locate the four HDMI OUT jacks on the back of the S master amplifier.
Connect an HDMI cable to any of the available HDMI OUT jacks. The plug inserts with the wide edge turned upward.
Connect the other end of the cable to the television's HDMI IN jack.
Connect source components for audio/video signals to the remaining HDMI jacks on the Sony amplifier. For example, a Blu-Ray player and a digital cable or satellite receiver box can also be connected to the Sony digital amplifier, which can process the signals and transmit them to the television.
Tips & Warnings
- Use RGB (Red, Green, Blue) component video cables to connect the Sony amp to a DVD player, which transmits standard definition video. Standard white and red audio cables can be used to connect sound-only components such as CD players and tape decks. Use the USB or mini-plug jacks for connecting small portable audio devices such as an iPod.
- Disconnect the Sony amp and the TV from the electrical outlets while making connections.
