About the effect type for HDD.C.S.
HD-D.C.S. has three different types:
Dynamic, Theater, and Studio. Each type has
different reflection and reverberation sound
mixture levels and is optimized to match a
listener’s room uniqueness, taste and mood.
x Dynamic
The “Dynamic” setting is suitable for an
environment which is reverberant but lacks a
spacious feeling (where sound absorption is
not sufficient). This setting emphasizes the
reflection of sound and reproduces the sound
of a large, classical movie theater. Thus, the
spacious feeling of a dubbing theater is
emphasized and a unique acoustic field is
created.
x Theater
Enjoying Sound Effects
Factory default setting. The “Theater” setting
is suitable for a general living room. This
setting reproduces the reverberation of sound
just like in a movie theater (dubbing theater).
It is most appropriate for watching content
recorded on a Blu-ray Disc when you want the
atmosphere of a movie theater.
x Studio
The “Studio” setting is suitable for a living
room with the appropriate sound equipment.
This setting reproduces the reverberation of
sound provided when a theatrical sound source
is remixed for a Blu-ray Disc to a volume level
suitable for home use. The level of reflection
and reverberation of sound is kept to the
minimum. However, dialogues and surround
effects are reproduced vividly.

information available for each brand. There is a
chance, however, that your equipment will not
respond to some or all of the codes.
• All of the input buttons on this remote control may
not be available when used with your particular
equipment.

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.
• Before operating the receiver, check that the
operating voltage is identical with your local
power supply.
The operating voltage is indicated on the
nameplate on the back of the receiver.
• 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 (mains lead), 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 (mains lead) must be
changed only at a qualified service shop.
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 receiver, please consult your
nearest Sony dealer.
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.
* The top of the cabinet may become too hot to touch.
On placement
• Place the receiver in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat buildup and
prolong the life of the receiver.
127US
Additional Information
On power sources
• 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.
Troubleshooting
If you experience any of the following
difficulties while using the receiver, use this
troubleshooting guide to help you remedy the
problem. Should any problem persist, consult
your nearest Sony dealer.
General
The receiver is turned off
automatically.
• “Auto Standby” is set to “On” (page 107).
• The sleep timer function is working
(page 86).
• “PROTECTOR” is working (page 136).
The receiver is turned on automatically.
• “Control for HDMI” is set to “On” or
“Pass Through” is set to “Off.” In this case,
the receiver may be turned on by operating
other equipment connected to it.
No picture and no sound are output, or
the picture and sound are corrupted.
• The receiver is placed near equipment
such as a television, VCR, or tape deck.
If the receiver is being used in
combination with a television, VCR, or
tape deck, and is placed too close to that
equipment, noise may result, and picture
quality may suffer. This is especially likely
when using an indoor antenna (aerial).
Therefore, we recommend using an
outdoor antenna (aerial).
The top of the receiver is hot.
• Phenomenon is specific to this amplifier.
This is not a malfunction. If “Control for
HDMI,” “Pass Through,” or “Network
Standby” is set to “On,” or the power for
zone 2 is turned on, the top of the receiver
may become hot even while the receiver is
in standby mode. This condition occurs
because current is flowing in the internal
circuits of the receiver, and this is normal.
