Getting Started
You can enjoy 7.1 surround sound by purchasing the Wireless Surround Speaker Kit (WAHT-SBP1,
optional). The optional product lineup differs depending on the area.
Getting Started
Installing the speakers on a wall
Caution
• Contact a screw shop or installer regarding the wall material or screws to be used.
• Use screws that are suitable for the wall material and strength. As a plaster board wall is especially fragile, attach
the screws securely to a beam and fasten them to the wall. Install the speakers on a vertical and flat wall where
reinforcement is applied.
• Sony is not responsible for accidents or damage caused by improper installation, insufficient wall strength or
improper screw installation, natural calamity, etc.
Before installing the front and surround speakers on a wall, you need to disassemble the speakers. You
can install the upper part of a speaker on a wall.
To disassemble the speaker
1
Disconnect the speaker cords from the speaker.
Rear of the speaker
2
Remove the screw (pre-installed) at the rear of the speaker.
This screw is used when reassembling the speaker. Be sure not to lose the screw.

– “PLII MUSIC” performs Dolby Pro Logic II music mode
decoding.
• Multi-channel source: The system outputs sound from the
speakers depending on the number of channels of the
source. “A.F.D. 7.1CH” creates the surround back sound
virtually and gives you the sound as 7.1 channel surround
sound.
These decoding modes appear only when you use the

• When you select “A.F.D. 7.1CH,” depending on the disc or source, the beginning of the sound may be cut off while
the optimum mode is automatically selected. To avoid cutting the sound, select “A.F.D. STD.”
• When the input signal is multi-channel source, “PRO LOGIC,” “PLII MOVIE,” and “PLII MUSIC” are canceled
and the multi-channel source is output directly.
• When the bilingual broadcast sound is input, “PRO LOGIC,” “PLII MOVIE,” and “PLII MUSIC” are not effective.
• “A.F.D. 7.1CH,” “PRO LOGIC,” “PLII MOVIE,” “PLII MUSIC,” “PLIIx MOVIE,” and “PLIIx MUSIC” are
canceled when you set the sound mode (page 52) to either of the following settings.

– “MOVIE-D.C.S.-”
• Depending on the input stream, the decoding mode may not be effective.
• When changing the decoding mode while using the S-AIR receiver, sound from the S-AIR receiver may skip.
Tip
• The system memorizes the last decoding mode selected for each function.
Whenever you select a function such as “BD/DVD” or “TUNER FM,” the decoding mode that was last applied to
the function is automatically applied again. For example, if you select “BD/DVD” with “PRO LOGIC” as the
decoding mode, then change to another function, and then return to “BD/DVD,” “PRO LOGIC” will be applied
again.

Precautions
On safety
• To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not place objects
filled with liquids, such as vases, on the system, or
place the system near water, such as near a bathtub or
shower room. Should any solid object or liquid fall
into the cabinet, unplug the system and have it
checked by qualified personnel before operating it
any further.
• Do not touch the AC power cord (mains lead) with
wet hands. Doing so may cause an electric shock.
On power sources
• Unplug the unit from the wall outlet (mains) if you do
not intend to use it for an extended period of time. To
disconnect the cord, pull it out by the plug, never by
the cord.
On placement
• Place the system in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the system.
• At high volume, over long periods of time, the cabinet
becomes hot to the touch. This is not a malfunction.
However, touching the cabinet should be avoided. Do
not place the system in a confined space where
ventilation is poor as this may cause overheating.
• Do not block the ventilation slots by putting anything
on the system. The system is equipped with a high
power amplifier. If the ventilation slots are blocked,
the system can overheat and malfunction.
• Do not place the system on surfaces (rugs, blankets,
etc.) or near materials (curtains, draperies) that may
block the ventilation slots.
• Do not install the system in a confined space, such as
a bookshelf or similar unit.
• Do not install the system near heat sources such as
radiators, air ducts, or in a place subject to direct
sunlight, excessive dust, mechanical vibration, or
shock.
• Do not install the system in an inclined position. It is
designed to be operated in a horizontal position only.
• Keep the system and discs away from components
with strong magnets, such as microwave ovens, or
large loudspeakers.
• Do not place heavy objects on the system.
90GB
• If the system is brought directly from a cold to a warm
location, or is placed in a very damp room, moisture
may condense on the lenses inside the unit. Should
this occur, the system may not operate properly. In
this case, remove the disc and leave the system turned
on for about half an hour until the moisture
evaporates.
• When you move the system, take out any disc. If you
don’t, the disc may be damaged.
• If anything falls into the cabinet, unplug the unit and
have it checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
On adjusting volume
• Do not turn up the volume while listening to a section
with very low level inputs or no audio signals. If you
do, the speakers may be damaged when a peak level
section is suddenly played.
On cleaning
• Clean the cabinet, panel, and controls with a soft cloth
slightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do
not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or
solvent such as alcohol or benzine.
If you have any questions or problems concerning
your system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.
On cleaning discs, disc/lens
cleaners
• Do not use cleaning discs or disc/lens cleaners
(including wet or spray types). These may cause
the apparatus to malfunction.
On replacement of parts
• In the events that this system is repaired, repaired
parts may be collected for reuse or recycling
purposes.
On your TV’s color
• If the speakers should cause the TV screen to have
color irregularity, turn off the TV then turn it on after
15 to 30 minutes. If color irregularity should persist,
place the speakers further away from the TV set.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Caution: This system is capable of holding a still
video image or on-screen display image on your
television screen indefinitely. If you leave the still
video image or on-screen display image displayed
on your TV for an extended period of time you risk
permanent damage to your television screen.
Projection televisions are especially susceptible to
this.
On moving the system
Before moving the system, make sure that there is no
disc inserted, and remove the AC power cord (mains
lead) from the wall outlet (mains).
About S-AIR function
On handling discs
• To keep the disc clean, handle the disc by its
edge. Do not touch the surface.
• Do not stick paper or tape on the disc.
• Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or
heat sources such as hot air ducts, or leave it in
a car parked in direct sunlight as the
temperature may rise considerably inside the
car.
• After playing, store the disc in its case.
On cleaning
• Before playing, clean the disc with a cleaning
cloth.
Wipe the disc from the center out.
• Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner,
commercially available cleaners, or anti-static
spray intended for vinyl LPs.
Additional Information
• As the S-AIR function transmits sound by radio
waves, heed the following:
– Sound may skip when radio waves are obstructed.
This is a characteristic of radio waves and is not
malfunction.
– Equipment that generates electromagnetic energy,
such as a microwave oven, may interfere with
sound transmission.
• As the S-AIR function uses the radio waves that share
the same frequency as other wireless systems, such as
wireless LAN or Bluetooth, interference or poor
transmission may result. In this case, take the
following steps:
– Do not install the system near other wireless
systems.
– Do not use the system and the other wireless
systems at the same time.
• The transmission distance differs depending on the
usage environment. Find a location where
transmission between the S-AIR main unit and sub
unit is most effective, and install the S-AIR main unit
and sub unit there.

Glossary
AVCHD
* A high definition specification that utilizes 1080
effective scanning lines and the interlace format.
** A high definition specification that utilizes 720
effective scanning lines and the progressive format.
BD-J application
The BD-ROM format supports Java for
interactive functions.
“BD-J” offers content providers almost
unlimited functionality when creating
interactive BD-ROM titles.
Additional Information
The AVCHD format is a high-definition digital
video camera format used to record SD
(standard definition) or HD (high definition)
signals of either the 1080i specification* or the
720p specification** on DVDs, using efficient
data compression coding technology. The
MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format is adopted to
compress video data, and the Dolby Digital or
Linear PCM system is used to compress audio
data. The MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format is
capable of compressing images at higher
efficiency than that of the conventional image
compression format. The MPEG-4 AVC/H.264
format enables a high definition (HD) video
signal shot on a digital video camera recorder to
be recorded on DVD discs in the same way as it
would be for a standard definition (SD)
television signal.
BD-R
BD-R (Blu-ray Disc Recordable) is a
recordable, write-once Blu-ray Disc, available
in the same capacities as the BD below. Since
contents can be recorded and cannot be
overwritten, a BD-R can be used to archive
valuable data or storing and distributing video
material.
BD-RE
BD-RE (Blu-ray Disc Rewritable) is a
recordable and rewritable Blu-ray Disc,
available in the same capacities as the BD
below. The re-recordable feature makes
extensive editing and time-shifting applications
possible.
109GB
BD-ROM
BD-ROMs (Blu-ray Disc Read-Only Memory)
are commercially produced discs and are
available in the same capacities as the BD
below. Other than conventional movie and video
contents, these discs have enhanced features
such as interactive content, menu operations
using pop-up menus, selection of subtitle
display, and slideshow. Although a BD-ROM
may contain any form of data, most BD-ROM
discs will contain movies in High Definition
format, for playback on Blu-ray Disc/DVD
players.
Blu-ray Disc (BD)
Dolby Digital Plus
Developed as an extension to Dolby Digital, the
audio coding technology supports 7.1 multichannel surround sound.
Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II creates five full-bandwidth
output channels from 2 channel sources. This is
done using an advanced, high-purity matrix
surround decoder that extracts the spatial
properties of the original recording without
adding any new sounds or tonal colorations.
A disc format developed for recording/playing
high-definition (HD) video (for HDTV, etc.),
and for storing large amounts of data. A single
layer Blu-ray Disc holds up to 25 GB, and a
dual-layer Blu-ray Disc holds up to 50 GB of
data.
x Movie mode
DCS (Digital Cinema Sound)
x Music mode
In collaboration with Sony Pictures
Entertainment, Sony measured the sound
environment of their studios and integrated the
data of the measurement with Sony DSP (Digital
Signal Processor) technology to develop
“Digital Cinema Sound.” “Digital Cinema
Sound” simulates in a home theater an ideal
movie theater sound environment based on the
preference of the movie director.
The Music mode is for use with any stereo music
recordings, and provides a wide and deep sound
space.
The Movie mode is for use with stereo television
shows and all programs encoded in Dolby
Surround. The result is enhanced sound field
directionality that approaches the quality of
discrete 5.1-channel sound.
Dolby Surround Pro Logic
Digital Cinema Auto Calibration was developed
by Sony to automatically measure and adjusts
the speaker settings to your listening
environment in a short period of time.
As one method of decoding Dolby Surround,
Dolby Surround Pro Logic produces four
channels from 2 channel sound. Compared with
the former Dolby Surround system, Dolby
Surround Pro Logic reproduces left-to-right
panning more naturally and localizes sounds
more precisely. To take full advantage of Dolby
Surround Pro Logic, you should have one pair of
surround speakers and a center speaker. The
surround speakers output monaural sound.
Dolby Digital
Dolby TrueHD
This movie theater sound format is more
advanced than Dolby Surround Pro Logic. In
this format, the surround speakers output stereo
sound with an expanded frequency range, and a
subwoofer channel for deep bass is
independently provided. This format is also
called “5.1” with the subwoofer channel
designed as the 0.1 channel (since it functions
only when a deep bass effect is needed). All six
channels in this format are recorded separately
for superior channel separation. Furthermore,
Dolby TrueHD is a lossless coding technology
that supports up to 8 channels of multi-channel
surround sound for the next generation optical
discs. The reproduced sound is true to the
original source bit-for-bit.
Digital Cinema Auto Calibration
110GB
since all the signals are processed digitally, less
signal degradation occurs.
DTS
Parental Control
Digital audio compression technology
developed by DTS, Inc. This technology
conforms to 5.1-channel surround. This format
comprises of stereo rear channel and there is
discrete subwoofer channel in this format. DTS
provides the same 5.1 discrete channels of high
quality digital audio. The good channel
separation is realized due to the all channel data
being recorded discretely and processed in
digitally.
A function of the BD/DVD to limit playback of
the disc by the age of the users according to the
limitation level in each country. The limitation
varies from disc to disc; when it is activated,
playback is completely prohibited, violent
scenes are skipped or replaced with other scenes
and so on.
DTS-HD High Resolution Audio
Developed as an extension to DTS Digital
Surround format. It supports a maximum
sampling frequency of 96 kHz, and 7.1 multichannel surround.
DTS-HD High Resolution Audio has a
maximum transmission rate of 6 Mbps, with
lossy compression (Lossy).
DTS-HD Master Audio
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia
Interface)
HDMI is an interface that supports both video
and audio on a single digital connection,
allowing you to enjoy high quality digital
picture and sound. The HDMI specification
supports HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital
Content Protection), a copy protection
technology that incorporates coding technology
for digital video signals.
Interlace format
(Interlaced scanning)
The Interlace format is the NTSC standard
method for displaying TV images at 30 frames
per second. Each frame is scanned twice alternately between the even numbered scanning
lines and then odd numbered scanning lines, at
60 times per second.
LTH (Low to High)
LTH is a recording system that supports organic
pigment type BD-R.
“PhotoTV HD” allows for a highly-detailed
pictures, and photo-like expression of subtle
textures and colors. By connecting Sony
“PhotoTV HD” compatible devices using an
HDMI cable, whole new world of photos can be
enjoyed in breathtaking Full HD quality. For
instance, the delicate texture of the human skin,
flowers, sand and waves can now be displayed
on a large screen in beautiful photo-like quality.
Pop-up menu
An enhanced menu operation available on BDROMs. The pop-up menu appears when POP
UP/MENU is pressed during playback, and can
be operated while playback is in progress.
Progressive format
(sequential scanning)
In contrast to the Interlace format, the
progressive format can reproduce 50 - 60 frames
per second by reproducing all scanning lines
(525 lines for the NTSC system). The overall
picture quality increases and still images, text
and horizontal lines appear sharper. This format
is compatible with the 525 or 625 progressive
format.

S-AIR
(Sony Audio Interactive Radio
frequency)
Recent times have seen the rapid spread of BD/
DVD media, Digital Broadcasting, and other
high-quality media.
To ensure that the subtle nuances of these highquality media are transmitted with no
deterioration, Sony has developed a technology
called “S-AIR” for the radio transmission of
digital audio signals with no compression, and
has incorporated this technology into the EZWRT10/EZW-RT10A/EZW-T100.
This technology transfers digital audio signals
with no compression using the 2.4 GHz band
111GB
range of ISM band (Industrial, Scientific, and
Medical band), such as wireless LANs and
Bluetooth applications.
x.v.Colour
x.v.Colour is a familiar term for the xvYCC
standard proposed by Sony.
xvYCC is an international standard for color
space in video.
This standard can express a wider color range
than the currently used broadcast standard.
24p True Cinema
Movies shot with a film camera consist of 24
frames per second.
Since conventional televisions (both CRT and
flat panels) display frames either at 1/60 or 1/50
second intervals, the 24 frames do not appear at
an even pace.
When connected to a TV with 24p capabilities,
the player displays each frame at 1/24 second
intervals — the same interval originally shot
with the film camera, thus faithfully reproducing
the original cinema image.
