3: Connecting speakers
Getting Started
Connect your speakers to the receiver. This receiver allows you to use a 7.1 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) or two surround back speakers (7.1
channel) (see “Selecting the surround back decoding mode” on page 33).
Example of 7.1 channel speaker system configuration
Center speaker
Front speaker (Right)
Surround speaker (Right)
Front speaker (Left)

Tips
• When you connect 6.1 channel speaker system, place the surround back speaker behind the listening position (see
“When placing only one surround back speaker” illustration on page 20).
• Since the sub woofer does not emit highly directional signals, you can place it wherever you want.

• The “LARGE” and “SMALL” settings for each
speaker determine whether 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”
speakers.
However, since bass sounds have a certain amount of
directionality, it is 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 BASS parameter in the EQ menu to
boost the bass levels. To adjust the bass, see page 37.

If you connect two surround back speakers and both
surround back speakers are not placed an equal

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 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 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 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!

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.

Lets you specify the location of your surround speakers
for proper implementation of the surround effects in
the Cinema Studio EX modes (page 31).

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.
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.

Tip
Dynamic range compressor lets you compress the

range information included in the Dolby Digital signal.
We recommend using the “MAX” setting. This greatly
compresses the dynamic range and lets you view
movies late at night at low volumes. Unlike analog

very natural compression.
Note
Dynamic range compression is possible with Dolby

On power sources
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.
• 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 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 on surfaces
that have been specially treated (with wax, oil,
polish, etc.) as staining or discoloration of the surface
may result.

• 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).
• Check that you have not selected MULTI CH IN
function.
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.
• Check that you have not selected MULTI CH IN
function.
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 10 feet away
from a TV set or fluorescent light.
• Move your audio components away from the TV.
• 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 38).
There is no sound or only a very low-level
sound is heard from the center/surround/
surround back speakers.
• Select the CINEMA STUDIO EX mode
(page 31).
• Adjust the speaker level (page 22).
• Make sure the center/surround speakers size
parameter are set to either “SMALL” or
“LARGE” (page 19).
• Make sure the surround back speaker selection
parameter is set to either “DUAL” or “SINGLE”
(page 19).
There is no sound from the sub woofer.
• Make sure you have turn on your sub woofer.
• Check that the sub woofer is connected correctly
and securely.
• Make sure the sub woofer selection parameter is
set to “YES” (page 18).
• There is no sound output from the sub woofer
depending on the sound field.

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.
The FM reception is poor.
• Use a 75-ohm coaxial cable (not supplied) to
connect the receiver to an outdoor FM antenna as
shown below. If you connect the receiver to an
outdoor antenna, ground it against lightning. To
prevent a gas explosion, do not connect the ground
wire to a gas pipe.
There is no picture or an unclear picture
appears on the TV screen or monitor.
• Select the appropriate input on the receiver.
• Set your TV to the appropriate input mode.

the receiver and video component (pages 8 and
11).
The DIGITAL OPTICAL MD/TAPE OUT jack
flashes red.
• When “AUTO IN” is selected for INPUT MODE,
the jack flashes red when no digital audio signal is
input. This depends on the INPUT MODE
function, and is not a malfunction.
Additional Information
Recording cannot be done.
• Check that the components are connected
correctly.
• Select the source component with input buttons.
• Make sure that INPUT MODE is set to
“ANALOG” (page 35) before recording from a

• Check that the antennas are connected securely.
Adjust the antennas and connect an external
antenna if necessary.
• The signal strength of the stations is too weak
(when tuning in with automatic tuning). Use direct
tuning.
• Make sure you set the tuning interval correctly
(when tuning in AM stations with direct tuning).
• No stations have been preset or the preset stations
have been cleared (when tuning by scanning
preset stations). Preset the stations (page 26).
• Press DISPLAY repeatedly so that the frequency
appears in the display.
