Need help with setting up or configuring your new A/V receiver?  Setting up a new A/V receiver can be a daunting task but there is help at hand for you.

A lot of manufacturers offer electronic copies of owners manuals, setup addendum's and tips on their websites to help you in case you lost yours or want to do some research. Often in PDF form, they make searching for key words easier than flipping through the manual that came with your new product. Doing a web search (such as Google) will generally find them quickly. Manuals for relatively recent products are often linked on the individual product pages, but some manufacturers also offer central sites to search for manuals. You can sometimes find free manuals for older products, too, using a web search. 

Don't forget to use the resources of our forums too!  Many of our forum members own the same equipment and can share their experiences with set-up and configuration.

Don't stay in the dark.  Use these tools to ensure you will get the most out of your new A/V receiver.
