Connecting Olive ONE to your amplifier/receiver

You will find the following connectors on the backside of the ONE:

Audio connectivity
You can connect the ONE in two ways to your amplifier/receiver: 
Analog: via 3.5 mm-to-RCA cable
The ONE comes with a standard 3.5mm-to-RCA cable for connection to the analog inputs on your receiver/amplifier. You can use it also to connect a sub-woofer.

Please do not connect headphones to the analog output. Headphones have different impedance and can damage the ONE’s digital-to-analog converter.
Digital: via S/PDIF coax cable
The digital out on the Olive ONE is bit-perfect, i.e. you will need to use the volume control on your amplifier/receiver (adjusting volume via the Olive ONE’s user interface will not work). 

Note: To play music via digital out please go to PREFERENCES > AUDIO and turn ON digital

Alternatively, you can use the built-in dual HD amplifiers and connect ONE directly to your passive speakers: You can use two unterminated speaker cables or standard banana plugs. The amplifier has an output of 2x 32W, so we recommend speakers that have at least 40W RMS.
The ONE can connect to your network via Gigabit Ethernet or WiFi. More about this in section 2, “Connecting to your network.”
The USB port currently supports backup, restore, update and recovery functionality.
Please only use the original Olive power supply included with the ONE.
Allows Olive to run detailed diagnostics without physically opening the unit.
Please do not connect any cables to this port.
Once all connections are established, touch the Power/Sleep button and the Olive ONE will boot up.
