WARNING
To prevent fire or shock
hazard, do not expose
the unit to rain or
moisture.
To avoid electrical shock, do not open
the cabinet. Refer servicing to qualified
personnel only.
Do not install the appliance in a
confined space, such as a bookcase or
built-in cabinet.
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
• 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.
• Should the AC power cord need to be
changed, have it done at a qualified
service shop only.
On placement
• Place the receiver in a location with
adequate ventilation to prevent heat
build-up 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.
On operation
• Before connecting other components,
be sure to turn off and unplug 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.

Adjusting the delay time
The test tone feature lets you set the volume of your
speakers to the same level. (If all of your speakers have
equal performance, you don’t have to adjust the
speaker volume.)
You can make the surround sound more effective by
delaying the output from the rear speakers (delay
time). You can select from three delay times, S (15 mS),
M (20 mS), and L (30 mS). For example, if you’ve
placed the rear speakers in a large room or apart from
your listening position, set the delay time shorter.
Using the controls on the remote lets you test the
speaker connection and adjust the volume level from
your listening position.

The left and right sounds are unbalanced or reversed.
/ Check that the speakers and components are
connected correctly and securely.
/ Adjust the BALANCE control.
Severe hum or noise is heard.
/ Check that the speakers and components are

the centre channel is output from the front
speakers.
Front
speaker (L)
Sound that consists of three elements: direct
sound, early reflected sound (early
reflections) and reverberative sound
(reverberation). The acoustics where you hear
the sound affect the way these three sound
elements are heard. These sound elements are
combined in such a way that you can actually
feel the size and the type of a concert hall.
Tuning method to let you directly enter a
station’s frequency using the numeric
buttons. Use this method if you know the
frequency of the station you want.
Dolby Pro Logic Surround
As one method of decoding Dolby Surround,
Dolby Pro Logic Surround produces four
channels from two channel 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 rear speakers and a
centre speaker. The rear speakers output
monaural sound.
