3: Connecting speakers
Getting Started
Connect your speakers to the receiver. This receiver allows you to use a 6.1 channel speaker system.
To fully enjoy theater-like multi channel surround sound requires five speakers (two front speakers, a
center speaker, and two surround speakers) and a sub woofer (5.1 channel).
You can enjoy high fidelity reproduction of DVD software recorded in the Surround EX format if you
connect one additional surround back speaker (6.1 channel) (see “Selecting the surround back decoding
mode” on page 33).
Example of 6.1 channel speaker system configuration
Center speaker
Front speaker (right)
Surround speaker (right)
Front speaker (left)
Sub woofer
Surround speaker (left)
Surround back speaker
Tips
• When you connect 6.1 channel speaker system, place the surround back speaker behind the listening position
(page 19).
• Since the sub woofer does not emit highly directional signals, you can place it wherever you want.
• For greater flexibility in the positioning of the speakers, use the optional WS-FV11 or WS-FV10D floor stand
(available only in certain countries).
• You can also install the front, surround and surround back speakers on the wall (see page 16).
Note
Connect the long speaker connecting cords to the surround and surround back speaker terminals and the short speaker
connecting cords to the front and center speaker terminals.

• 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.
• Contact a screw shop or installer regarding the wall
material or screws to be used.

(Surround back speaker distance)
Tip
The receiver lets you to input the speaker position in
terms of distance. However, it is not possible to set the
center speaker further than the front speakers. Also, the
center speaker cannot be set more than 1.5 meters
(5 feet) closer than the front speakers.
Likewise, the surround speakers cannot be set further
away from the listening position than the front
speakers. And they can be no more than 4.5 meters
(15 feet) closer.
This is because incorrect speaker placement is not
conducive to the enjoyment of 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 further away.
For example, setting the center speaker distance 1–2
meters (3–6 feet) 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
sound stage.
Adjusting these parameter while listening to the sound
often results in much better surround sound. Give it a
try!
Initial setting: 3.0 m (10 ft.)
Lets you set the distance from your listening position
to the surround speakers. Surround speaker distance
should be set from a distance equal to the front speaker
distance (A) to a distance 4.5 meters (15 feet) closer to
your listening position (C).
If both surround speakers are not placed an equal
distance from your listening position, set the distance
to the closest speaker.

Surround speaker position is designed specifically for
implementation of the Cinema Studio EX modes.
For other sound fields, speaker position is not so
critical. Those sound fields were designed under the
premise that the surround speakers 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
surround effects becomes unclear unless set to
“SIDE/LO” or “SIDE/HI”.
Nevertheless, each listening environment has many
variables, such as wall reflections, and you may obtain
better results using “BEHD/HI” 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 above explanation, we recommend that you
playback multi channel surround encoded software and
select 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 of the front speakers.
If you are not sure which sounds best, select
“BEHD/LO” or “BEHD/HI” and then use the speaker
distance parameter and speaker level adjustments to
obtain proper balance.

About DCS (Digital Cinema
Sound)
Sound fields with DCS marks use DCS
technology.
DCS is the concept name of the surround
technology for home theater developed by Sony.
DCS uses the DSP (Digital Signal Processor)
technology to reproduce the sound
characteristics of an actual cinema cutting studio
in Hollywood.
When played at home, DCS will create a
powerful theater effect that mimics the artistic
combination of sound and action as envisioned
by the movie director.

x C.ST.EX C (CINEMA STUDIO EX C) DCS
Reproduces the sound characteristics of the Sony
Pictures Entertainment scoring stage. This mode is
ideal for watching musicals or films where orchestra
music is featured in the soundtrack.
About CINEMA STUDIO EX modes
CINEMA STUDIO EX modes are suitable for
watching motion picture DVDs (etc.), with
multi channel surround effects. You can
reproduce the sound characteristics of Sony
Pictures Entertainment’s dubbing studio in your
home.
The CINEMA STUDIO EX modes consist of
the following three elements.
• Virtual Multi Dimension
Creates 5 sets of virtual speakers from a single
pair of actual surround speakers.
• Screen Depth Matching
Creates the sensation that the sound is coming
from inside the screen like in theaters.
• Cinema Studio Reverberation
Reproduces the type of reverberation found in
theaters.
The CINEMA STUDIO EX modes integrate
these three elements simultaneously.
Notes
• The effects provided by the virtual speakers may
cause increased noise in the playback signal.
• When listening with sound fields that employ the
virtual speakers, you will not be able to hear any
sound coming directly from the surround speakers.

“STD” is the standard setting, but it only enacts light
compression. Therefore, we recommend using the
“MAX” setting. This greatly compresses the dynamic

Programming the remote
You can program the remote to control nonSony 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.
1
Press AV ?/1 while holding down
RM SET UP.

Press the input button (including TV
?/1) for the component you want to
control.
For example, if you are going to control a
CD player, press SA-CD/CD.

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 48–50 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).

Press ENTER.
Once the numeric code has been verified,
the indicator slowly flashes twice and the
remote automatically exits the
programming mode.
5
Press RM SET UP during any step. The remote
automatically exits the programming mode.
To activate the input after
programming
Press the programmed button to activate the
input you want.
If programming is unsuccessful,
check the following:
• If the indicator does not light up in step 1, the
batteries are weak. Replace both batteries.
• If the indicator flashes 4 times in quick
succession while entering the numeric code,
an error has occurred. Start again from step 1.
Notes
• The indicator turns off while a valid button is
pressed.
• In step 2, if several input buttons are pressed, only the
last pressed button is valid.
• In step 2, if you press TV ?/1, only TV VOL +/– ,
TV CH +/–, TV/VIDEO and WIDE buttons are
reprogrammed.
• In step 3, if an input button is pressed, the new input
is selected and the programming procedure returns to
the beginning of step 3.
• For the numeric codes, only the first three numbers
entered are valid.

If you encounter color irregularity on a
nearby TV screen
Additional Information
Precautions
On safety
Should any solid object or liquid fall into the cabinet,
unplug the receiver and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any further.
On power sources
If color irregularity is observed...
Turn off the TV set once, then turn it on again after
15 to 30 minutes.
If color irregularity is observed again...
Place the speakers further away from the TV set.
If howling occurs
Reposition the speakers or turn down the volume on
the receiver.
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 question or problem concerning your
receiver, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.
Additional Information
• 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 receiver is not disconnected from the AC power
source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall
outlet, even if the receiver 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.
• (Models of area code U, CA only)
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.
The front and center speakers and the sub woofer are
magnetically shielded to allow it to be installed near
a TV set. However, color irregularities may still be
observed on certain types of TV sets. As the surround
and surround back speakers are not magnetically
shielded, we recommend that you place them slightly
further away from a TV set (page 13).
On heat buildup
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 considerably. To avoid burning
yourself, do not touch the cabinet.
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.
• Use caution when placing the receiver or speakers on
surfaces that have been specially treated (with wax,
oil, polish, etc.) as staining or discoloration of the
surface may result.
On operation
Before connecting other components, be sure to turn
off and unplug the receiver.

Troubleshooting
If you experience any of the following
difficulties while using the receiver, use this
troubleshooting guide to help you remedy the
problem.
There is no sound or only a very low-level
sound no matter which component is
selected.
• Check that the speakers and components are
connected correctly and securely.
• Check that both the receiver and all components
are turned on.
• Check that you have selected the correct
component on the receiver.
• Check that MASTER VOLUME –/+ is not set at
“VOL MIN”.
• Check that the SPEAKERS (OFF/A/B/A+B) is
not set to off (page 40).
• Check that the headphones are not connected.
• Press MUTING on the remote to cancel the
muting function.
There is 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.
• Check that you have selected the correct
component on the receiver.
There is no sound from one of the front
speakers.
• Connect a pair of headphones to the PHONES
jack to verify that sound is output from the
headphones. 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.
There is no sound from analog 2 channel
sources.
• Check that the INPUT MODE is not set to
“COAX IN” or “OPT IN” (page 35).
There is no sound from digital sources (from
COAXIAL or OPTICAL input jack).
• Check that the INPUT MODE is not set to
“ANALOG” (page 35). Check that the INPUT
MODE is not set to “COAX IN” for the sources
from OPTICAL input jack, or set to “OPT IN” for
the sources from COAXIAL input jack.
The left and right sounds are unbalanced or
reversed.
• Check that the speakers and components are
connected correctly and securely.
• Adjust balance parameters in the LEVEL menu.
There is severe hum or noise.
• Check that the speakers and components are
connected securely.
• Check that the connecting cords are away from a
transformer or motor, and at least 3 meters (10
feet) away from a TV set or fluorescent light.
• Move your TV away from the audio components.
• The plugs and jacks are dirty. Wipe them with a
cloth slightly moistened with alcohol.
There is no sound from the surround back
speakers.
• Some discs have no Dolby Digital EX flag even
though the packages have Dolby Digital EX
logos. In this case, select “SB ON” (page 37).
There is no sound or only a very low-level
sound is heard from the center/surround/
surround back speakers.
• Select a CINEMA STUDIO EX mode (page 32).
• Adjust the speaker level (page 21).
There is no sound from the sub woofer.
• Check that the sub woofer is connected correctly
and securely.
The surround effect cannot be obtained.
• Make sure the sound field function is on (press
MOVIE or MUSIC).
• Sound fields do not function for the signals with a
sampling frequency of more than 48 kHz.
Dolby Digital or DTS multi channel sound is
not reproduced.
• Check that the playing DVD, etc. is recorded in
Dolby Digital or DTS format.
• When connecting the DVD player, etc. to the
digital input jacks of this receiver, check the audio
setting (settings for the audio output) of the
connected component.
