Yamaha 663 all hooked up and loving it, one question I have is about the voltage selector on the back. The manual keeps referencing it but it doesn't really point out where the stupid thing is exactly, if its what im looking at on the back and is currently horizontal. I would assume from the photo in the manual that this is the proper voltage setting for america but like I said its vague and isn't actually labeled on the back of the unit. If anyone that owns this unit can lend some info it would be great I just don't want to burn up my new reciever, thanks in advance guys and gals:) Also if there is anything else I should be aware of throw it at me, I ran the speaker calibration and it worked really smooth.

Looking at the manual it looks like when you rotate it with a flat blade screwdriver it will indicate what voltage you have it set to. Look at yours and see what it says right now.

Thats what im talking about, nowhere on the back of it does it say anything about two different kinds of voltage, if you go to yamaha's website and look at the back panel view you will see what im talking about, maybe they are only on the units that go overseas. There is a square hole that looks like it has a microchip in it, kinda like a service hole but there is no voltage label anywhere near it. I don't know, its kinda confusing I must be missing something.

Ok thanks guys crisis averted, it just covers it very poorly in the manual.
