On power sources
• Before operating the receiver, check that the
operating voltage is identical with your local
power supply. The operating voltage is
indicated on the nameplate at the rear of the
receiver.
• The unit is not disconnected from the AC
power source (mains) as long as it is
connected to the wall outlet, even if the unit
itself has been turned off.
• If you are not going to use the receiver for a
long time, be sure to disconnect the receiver
from the wall outlet. To disconnect the AC
power cord, grasp the plug itself; never pull
the cord.
• One blade of the plug is wider than the other
for the purpose of safety and will fit into the
wall outlet only one way. If you are unable to
insert the plug fully into the outlet, contact
your dealer.
• AC power cord must be changed only at the
qualified service shop.
On placement
• Place the receiver in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat buildup and
prolong the life of the receiver.
• Do not place the receiver near heat sources,
or in a place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust or mechanical shock.
• Do not place anything on top of the cabinet
that might block the ventilation holes and
cause malfunctions.
• Although the receiver heats up during
operation, this is not a malfunction. If you
continuously use this receiver at a large
volume, the cabinet temperature of the top,
side and bottom rises accordingly. To avoid
burning yourself, do not touch the cabinet.
On operation
Don't throw a battery,

OUTPUT jacks, you can connect them directly to the
receiver to enjoy the sound of the DVD player’s multi
channel decoder. Alternatively, the MULTI CH IN jacks
can be used to connect an external multi channel decoder.
To fully enjoy multi channel surround sound, you will
need five speakers (two front speakers, two surround
speakers, and a center speaker) and a sub woofer. Refer to
the instruction manual supplied with your DVD player,
multi channel decoder, etc., for details on the multi
channel input hookups.

Notes on speaker system hookup
• Twist the stripped ends of the speaker cords about 2/3
inch (10 mm). Be sure to match the speaker cord to the
appropriate terminal on the components: + to + and –
to –. If the cords are reversed, the sound will be
distorted and will lack bass.
• If you use speakers with low maximum input rating,
adjust the volume carefully to avoid excessive output
on the speakers.
To avoid short-circuiting the speakers
Short-circuiting of the speakers may damage the receiver.
To prevent this, make sure to take the following
precautions when connecting the speakers.
Hooking Up and Setting Up the Speaker System
Make sure the stripped ends of each speaker cord
does not touch another speaker terminal or the
stripped end of another speaker cord.
Examples of poor conditions of the speaker cord
Stripped speaker cord is touching another speaker terminal.
Stripped cords are touching each other due to excessive
removal of insulation.
After connecting all the components, speakers,
and AC power cord, output a test tone to check
that all the speakers are connected correctly. For
details on outputting a test tone, see page 18.
If no sound is heard from a speaker while outputting a
test tone or a test tone is output from a speaker other than
the one whose name is currently displayed on the

• If you connect large speakers that will effectively reproduce
bass frequencies, select “LARGE”. Normally, select “LARGE”.
• If the sound is distorted, or you feel a lack of surround effects
when using multi channel surround sound, select “SMALL”
to activate the bass redirection circuitry and output the front

select “SMALL” to activate the bass redirection circuitry
and output the center channel bass frequencies from the
front speakers (if set to “LARGE”) or sub woofer. *1
• If you do not connect the center speaker, select “NO”.
The sound of the center channel will be output from the
front speakers.*2

Initial setting : LARGE
• If you connect large speakers that will effectively

“LARGE”.
• If the sound is distorted, or you feel a lack of surround
effects when using multi channel surround sound,
select “SMALL” to activate the bass redirection circuitry
and output the surround channel bass frequencies from
the sub woofer or other “LARGE” speakers.
• If you do not connect surround speakers, select “NO”.*3
z About speaker sizes (LARGE and SMALL)
Internally, the LARGE and SMALL settings for each speaker
determine whether or not the internal sound processor will cut
the bass signal from that channel. When the bass is cut from a
channel the bass redirection circuitry sends the corresponding
bass frequencies to the sub woofer or other “LARGE” speaker.
However, since bass sounds have a certain amount of
directionality it best not to cut them, if possible. Therefore, even
when using small speakers, you can set them to “LARGE” if you
want to output the bass frequencies from that speaker. On the
other hand, if you are using a large speaker, but prefer not to
have bass frequencies output from that speaker, set it to
“SMALL”.
If the overall sound level is lower than you prefer, set all speakers
to “LARGE”. If there is not enough bass, you can use the
equalizer to boost the bass levels. To adjust the equalizer see page
34.
x Surround speaker position (

z About the surround speaker position (PL. SIDE, PL. MID and
PL. BEHD.)
This setting is designed specifically for implementation of the
Digital Cinema Sound modes in the “VIRTUAL” sound fields.
With the Digital Cinema Sound modes, speaker position is not as
critical as other modes. All of the modes in the “VIRTUAL”
sound fields were designed under the premise that the surround
speaker would be located behind the listening position, but
presentation remains fairly consistent even with the surround
speakers positioned at a rather wide angle. However, if the
speakers are pointing toward the listener from the immediate left
and right of the listening position, the “VIRTUAL” sound fields
will not be effective unless the surround speaker position
parameter is set to “PL. SIDE”.
Nevertheless, each listening environment has many variables,
such as wall reflections, and you may obtain better results using
“PL. BEHD” or “PL. MID” if your speakers are located high
above the listening position, even if they are to the immediate left
and right.
Therefore, although it may result in a setting contrary to the
“Surround speaker position” explanation, we recommend that
you play back multi channel surround encoded software and
listen to the effect each setting has on your listening environment.
Choose the setting that provides a good sense of spaciousness
and that best succeeds in forming a cohesive space between the
surround sound from the surround speakers and the sound from
the front speakers. If you are not sure which sounds best, select
“PL. BEHD.” and then use the speaker distance parameter and
speaker level adjustments to obtain proper balance.
R )
x Front speaker distance ( L
Initial setting : DIST. 5.0 m (5.0 meter) 16 feet
Set the distance from your listening position to the front
(left or right) speaker (A on page 15).
• Front speaker distance can be set in 1 foot (0.1 meter)
steps from 3 to 40 feet (1.0 to 12.0 meters).
• If both speakers are not placed an equal distance from
your listening position, set the distance to the closest
speaker.
x Center speaker distance ( C )
Initial setting : DIST. 5.0 m (5.0 meter) 16 feet
Set the distance from your listening position to the center
speaker.
• Center speaker distance can be set in 1 foot (0.1 meter)
steps from a distance equal to the front speaker distance
(A on page 15) to a distance 5 feet (1.5 meters) closer to
your listening position (B on page 15).
• Do not place the center speaker farther away from your
listening position than the front speakers.
x Surround speaker distance ( SL SR )
Initial setting : DIST. 3.5 m (3.5 meter) 11 feet
Set the distance from your listening position to the
surround (left or right) speaker.
• Surround speaker distance can be set in 1 foot (0.1
meter) steps from a distance equal to the front speaker
distance (A on page 15) to a distance 15 feet (4.5 meters)
closer to your listening position (C on page 15).
• Do not place the surround speakers farther away from
your listening position than the front speakers.
• If both speakers are not placed an equal distance from
your listening position, set the distance to the closest
speaker.
17
Hooking Up and Setting Up the Speaker System
Initial setting : HGT. LOW
This parameter lets you specify the height of your
surround speakers for proper implementation of the
Digital Cinema Sound surround modes in the
“VIRTUAL” sound fields. Refer to the illustration below.
• Select “HGT. LOW” if the location of your surround
speakers corresponds to section A.
• Select “HGT. HIGH” if the location of your surround
speakers corresponds to section B.
This setting only affects the surround modes in the
“VIRTUAL” sound fields.
x Sub woofer selection
Initial setting : S.W. YES
• If you connect a sub woofer, select “S.W. YES”.
• If you do not connect a sub woofer, select “S.W. NO”.
This activates the bass redirection circuitry and outputs
the LFE signals from other speakers.
• In order to take full advantage of the Dolby Digital bass
redirection circuitry, we recommend setting the sub
woofer’s cut off frequency as high as possible.
Multi Channel Surround Setup
z About speaker distances
Hooking Up and Setting Up the Speaker System
This receiver allows you to input the speaker position in terms of
distance. However, it is not possible to set the center speaker
farther away than the front speakers. Also, the center speaker can
not be set more that 5 feet (1.5 meters) closer than the front
speakers.
Likewise, the surround speakers cannot be set farther away from
the listening position than the front speakers. And they can be no
more than 15 feet (4.5 meters) closer.
This is because incorrect speaker placement is not conducive to
enjoy the surround sound.
Please note that, setting the speaker distance closer than the
actual location of the speakers will cause a delay in the output of
the sound from that speaker. In other words, the speaker will
sound like it is farther away.
For example, setting the center speaker distance 3~6 feet (1~2 m)
closer than the actual speaker position will create a fairly realistic
sensation of being “inside” the screen. If you cannot obtain a
satisfactory surround effect because the surround speakers are
too close, setting the surround speaker distance closer (shorter)
than the actual distance will create a larger soundstage. (1 foot
corresponds to a 1 ms difference.)
Adjusting these parameters while listening to the sound often
results in much better surround sound. Give it a try!
Adjusting the speaker volume
Use the remote while seated in your listening position to
adjust the volume of each speaker.
Note
This receiver incorporates a new test tone with a frequency
centered at 800 Hz for easier speaker volume adjustment.
1
Press ?/1 to turn on the receiver.
2
Press TEST TONE on the supplied remote.
You will hear the test tone from each speaker in
sequence.
3
Adjust the volume level so that the volume of the
test tone from each speaker sounds the same
when you are in your main listening position.
• To adjust the balance of the front right and front left
speakers, use the front balance parameter in the
LEVEL menu (see page 33).
• To adjust the balance of the surround right and
surround left speakers, use the surround balance
parameter in the LEVEL menu (see page 33).
• To adjust the volume level of the center speaker,
press MENU </> to select the center parameter.
Use +/– on the remote to adjust the level.
• To adjust the volume level of the surround speaker,
press MENU </> to select the surround parameter.
Use +/– on the remote to adjust the level.
4
Press TEST TONE on the remote again to turn off
the test tone.
Note
The test tone cannot be output when the receiver is set to MULTI
CH IN.
z You can adjust the volume level of all speakers at the same
time
Rotate MASTER VOLUME on the receiver or press MASTER

z When setting the volume levels for each speaker
Let’s assume that you have matched the sound levels of all the
speakers using the test tone. Although this lays the foundation
for high quality surround sound, it may be necessary to make
further adjustments while listening to playback of actual
software. This is because most software contains center and
surround channels recorded at slightly lower levels than the two
front channels.
When you actually play back software recorded in multi channel
surround, you will notice that increasing the center and surround
speaker levels produces a better blend between the front and
center speakers and greater cohesion between the front and
surround speakers. Increasing the level of the center speaker
about 1 dB, and the surround speakers about 1~2 dB is likely to
produce better results.
In other words, in order to create a more cohesive soundstage
with balanced dialog, we recommend that you make some
adjustments while playing your software. Changes of only 1 dB
can make a huge difference in the character of the soundstage.

Hooking Up and Setting Up the Speaker System
• The front balance, surround balance, center level, and surround
level are shown in the display during adjustment.
• Although these adjustments can also be made via the front
panel using the LEVEL menu (when the test tone is output, the
receiver switches to the LEVEL menu automatically), we
recommend you follow the procedure previously described in
this section and adjust the speaker levels from your listening
position using the remote control.
Before You Use Your Receiver
There’s no sound from a specific component.
, Check that the component is connected correctly to
the audio input jacks for that component.
, Check that the cord(s) used for the connection is
(are) fully inserted into the jacks on both the
receiver and the component.
Hooking Up and Setting Up the Speaker System
No sound is heard from one of the front
speakers.
, Connect a pair of headphones to the PHONES jack
to verify that sound is output from the headphones
(see “qf SPEAKERS button” and “PHONES jack”
on page 23).
If only one channel is output from the headphones,
the component may not be connected to the
receiver correctly. Check that all the cords are fully
inserted into the jacks on both the receiver and the
component.
If both channels are output from the headphones,
the front speaker may not be connected to the
receiver correctly. Check the connection of the front
speaker which is not outputting any sound.

You can enjoy multi channel surround
when playing back software encoded
with Dolby Digital or DTS.
A.F.D.
The “Auto Format Decoding” sound mode presents the
sound exactly as it was encoded, without adding any
reverberation (etc.).
To fully enjoy surround sound, you must register the
number and location of your speakers. See “MultiChannel Surround setup” starting on page 15 to set the
speaker parameters before enjoying surround sound.
25
Enjoying Surround Sound
You can take advantage of surround sound simply by
selecting one of the receiver’s pre-programmed sound
modes. They bring the exciting and powerful sound of
movie theaters and concert halls into your home. You can
also customize the sound modes to obtain the sound you
desire by changing the various surround parameters.
The receiver contains a variety of different sound modes.
The cinema sound modes are designed for use when
playing back movie software (DVD, LD, etc.) encoded
with multi channel surround sound or Dolby Pro Logic.
In addition to decoding the surround sound, some of
these modes also provide sound effects commonly found
in movie theaters.
The virtual sound modes contain compelling applications
of the Sony Digital Cinema Sound digital signal
processing technology. They shift the sound away from
the actual speaker locations to simulate the presence of
several “virtual” speakers.
The music (etc.) sound modes are designed for use with
standard audio sources and TV broadcasts. They add
reverberation to the source signal to make you feel as if
you were in a concert hall or stadium (etc.). Use these
sound modes with two-channel sources like CD and
stereo broadcasts of sports programs or musical concerts.
For more information about the sound modes, see pages

Customizing Sound Fields
By adjusting the surround parameters and the tone
characteristics of the front speakers, you can customize
the sound fields to suit your particular listening situation.
Once you customize a sound field, the changes are stored
in memory indefinitely (unless the receiver is unplugged
for about one week). You can change a customized sound
field any time by making new adjustments to the
parameters.
See the table on page 35 for the parameters available in
each sound field.
Enjoying Surround Sound
To get the most from multi channel
surround sound
Position your speakers and do the procedures described
in “Multi Channel Surround Setup” starting on page 15
before you customize a sound field.
Adjusting the surround parameters
The SURR menu contains parameters that let you
customize various aspects of the current sound field. The
settings available in this menu are stored individually for
each sound field.
1
Start playing a program source encoded with multi
channel surround sound.
2
Press SURR.
The button lights up and the first parameter is
displayed.
3
Press the cursor buttons ( or
parameter you want to adjust.
4
Turn the jog dial to select the setting you want.
The setting is stored automatically.
) to select the
Effect level (EFFECT)
Initial setting : (depends on sound mode)
This parameter lets you adjust the “presence” of the
current surround effect.
32
Wall type
Initial setting : WALL MID
When sound is reflected off soft material, such as a
curtain, the high frequency elements are reduced. A hard
wall is highly reflective and does not significantly affect
the frequency response of the reflected sound. This
parameter lets you control the level of the high
frequencies to alter the sonic character of your listening
environment by simulating a softer (S) or harder (H) wall.
• The wall type can be adjusted from WALL S. 1 ~ WALL
S. 8 (soft) to WALL H. 1 ~ WALL H. 8 (hard) in 17 steps.
• The midpoint WALL MID designates a neutral wall
(made of wood).
Reverberation
Initial setting : REVB. MID
Before sound reaches our ears, it is reflected
(reverberated) many times between the left and right
walls, ceiling, and floor. In a large room, sound takes more
time to bounce from one surface to another than in a
smaller room. This parameter lets you control the spacing
of the early reflections to simulate a sonically larger (L) or
smaller (S) room.
• The reverberation can be adjusted from REVB. S. 1 ~
REVB. S. 8 (short) to REVB. L. 1 ~ REVB. L. 8 (long) in
17 steps.
• The midpoint REVB. MID designates a standard room
with no adjustment.
Screen depth
Initial setting : SCR. MID
In a movie theater, sound seems to come from inside the
image reflected on the movie screen. This parameter
allows you to create the same sensation in your listening
room by shifting the sound of the front speakers “into”
the screen.
• The screen depth can be set to SCR. OFF, SCR. MID, or
SCR. DEEP.
• SCR. DEEP provides the greatest amount of screen
depth.
Adjusting the level parameters
The LEVEL menu contains parameters that let you adjust
the balance and speaker volumes of each speaker. The
settings available in this menu are applied to all sound
fields.
Start playing a program source encoded with multi

Initial setting : BALANCE
Lets you adjust the balance between the front left and
right speakers.
• The balance can be adjusted ±8 steps.
• These settings can also be adjusted using the supplied
remote. See “Adjusting the speaker volume” (page 18).
* The parameters can be adjusted separately for MULTI CH IN.
Low Frequency Effect
Initial setting : L.F.E. 0 dB
This parameter lets you attenuate the level of the LFE
(Low Frequency Effect) channel output from the sub
woofer without affecting the level of the bass frequencies
sent to the sub woofer from the front, center or surround
channels via the bass redirection circuitry.
• The level can be adjusted in 1 dB steps from –20.0 dB to
0 dB (line level). 0 dB outputs the full LFE signal at the
mix level determined by the recording engineer.
• Selecting OFF mutes the sound of the LFE channel from
the sub woofer. However, the low frequency sounds of
the front, center, or surround speakers are output from
the sub woofer according to the settings made for each
speaker in the speaker setup (page 15).
*Surround balance ( SL SR )
Initial setting : BALANCE
Lets you adjust the balance between the surround left and
right speakers.
• The balance can be adjusted ±8 steps.
• These settings can also be adjusted using the supplied
remote. See “Adjusting the speaker volume” (page 18).
*Center level
Initial setting : CTR 0 dB
Lets you adjust the level of the center speaker.
• The level can be adjusted in 1 dB steps from –6 dB to +6
dB.
*Surround level
Initial setting : SURR 0 dB
Lets you adjust level of the surround (left and right)
speakers.
• The level can be adjusted in 1 dB steps from –6 dB to +6
dB.

*Sub woofer level
Initial setting : S.W. 0 dB
Lets you adjust the level of the sub woofer.
• The level can be adjusted in 1 dB steps from –6 dB to +6
dB.
Customizing Sound Fields
Dynamic range compressor ( D. RANGE )
Initial setting : COMP. OFF
Lets you compress the dynamic range of the sound track.
This may be useful when you want to watch movies at
low volumes late at night.
• COMP. OFF reproduces the sound track with no
compression.
• COMP. STD reproduces the sound track with the
dynamic range intended by the recording engineer.
• COMP. 0.1 ~ 0.9 allow you to compress the dynamic
range in small steps to achieve the sound you want.
• COMP. MAX provides a dramatic compression of the
dynamic range.
Adjusting the equalizer
The EQ menu lets you adjust the equalization (low and
high frequencies) of the front speakers. The equalizer
settings are stored individually for each sound field.
1
Start playing a program source encoded with multi
channel surround sound.
2
Press EQ.
The button lights up and the first parameter is
displayed.
3
Press the cursor buttons ( or
parameter you want to adjust.
4

The setting is stored automatically.
Note
Enjoying Surround Sound
Dynamic range compression does not work with DTS sources.
z About the Dynamic Range Compressor
This parameter allows you to compress the dynamic range of the
soundtrack based on the dynamic range information included in
the Dolby Digital signal. “COMP. STD” is standard compression,
but because many sources have only light compression, you may
not notice much difference when using COMP. 0.1~0.9.
Therefore, we recommend using the “COMP. MAX” setting. This
greatly compresses the dynamic range and allows you to view
movies late at night at low volumes. Unlike analog limiters, the
levels are predetermined and it provides a very natural
compression.

Naming Preset Stations and
Program Sources
You can enter a name (index name) of up to 8 characters
for preset stations and program sources. These names (for
example, “VHS”) appear in the receiver’s display when a
station or program source is selected.
Note that no more than one name can be entered for each
preset station or program source.
This function is useful for distinguishing components of
the same kind. For example, two VCRs can be specified as
“VHS” and “8MM”, respectively. It is also handy for
identifying components connected to jacks meant for
another type of component, for example, a second CD
player connected to the MD/TAPE jacks.
Recording
Your receiver makes it easy to record to and from the
components connected to it. You don’t have to connect the
playback and recording components directly to each
other: once you select a program source on the receiver,
you can record and edit as you normally would using the
controls on each component.
Before you begin, make sure you’ve connected all
components properly.

General
Glossary
Surround sound
Sound that consists of three elements:
direct sound, early reflected sound
(early reflections) and reverberative
sound (reverberation). The acoustics
of the surrounding space affect the
way these three sound elements are
heard. Surround sound combines
these sound elements in such a way
that you actually can sense the size of
the venue, as well as its type.
• Types of sound
Early reflections
Reverberation
Dolby Digital
This sound format for movie theaters
is more advanced than Dolby Pro
Logic Surround. In this format, the
surround speakers output stereo
sound with an expanded frequency
range and a sub woofer channel for
deep bass is independently provided.
This format is also called “5.1”
because the sub woofer channel is
counted as 0.1 channel (since it
functions only when a deep bass
effect is needed). All six channels in
this format are recorded separately to
realize superior channel separation.
Furthermore, since all the signals are
processed digitally, less signal
degradation occurs.
Direct sound
Digital Cinema Sound
This is the generic name of the
surround sound produced by digital
signal processing technology
developed by Sony. Unlike previous
surround sound fields mainly
directed at the reproduction of music,
Digital Cinema Sound is designed
specifically for the enjoyment of
movies.

Dolby Pro Logic Surround
As one method of decoding Dolby
Surround, Dolby Pro Logic Surround
produces four channels from twochannel sound. Compared with the
former Dolby Surround system,
Dolby Pro Logic Surround reproduces
left-to-right panning more naturally
and localizes sounds more precisely.
To take full advantage of Dolby Pro
Logic Surround, you should have one
pair of surround speakers and a
center speaker. The surround speakers
output monaural sound.

Programming the remote
3
Press the numeric buttons to enter the numeric
code (or one of the codes if more than one code
exists) corresponding to the component and the
maker of the component you want to control.
See the tables on pages 59 and 60 for information on
the numeric code(s) corresponding to the component
and the maker of the component (the first digit and
the last two digits of the numeric code correspond to
the category and the maker’s code respectively.)
4
Press ENTER.
Once the numeric code has been verified, the indicator
slowly flashes twice and the remote automatically
exits the programming mode.
5
Repeat steps 1 to 4 to control other components.
You can program the remote to control non-Sony
components by changing the code. Once the control
signals have been memorized, you can use those
components as part of your system.
Furthermore, you can also program the remote for Sony
components that the remote is unable to control. Note that
the remote can only control components that accept
infrared wireless control signals.
Note
When you assign a component to the MONITOR button, you can
operate the programmed component without changing the
function of the receiver.

Press ?/1, AV ?/1 and MASTER VOL – at the same
time.
The indicator flashes 3 times, then goes off.
The numeric codes corresponding to the
component and the maker of the component
Use the numeric codes in the tables below to control nonSony conponents and also Sony components that the
remote is normally unable to control. Since the remote
signal that a component accepts differs depending on the
model and year of the component, more than one numeric
code may be assigned to a component. If you fail to
program your remote using one of the codes, try using
other codes.
Notes
• The numeric codes are based on the latest information available
for each brand. There is a chance, however, that your
component will not respond to some or all of the codes.
• All of the functions on this remote may not be available when
used with your particular component.
